Random Firsts

  • Started reading Shortcomings by Adrian Tomine, and I think I’m going to finish it tonight. Actually started it at the line for MRT, 4 trains passed before I got in. Whew. 
  • It was my first time to eat lunch alone at the ADB caf first floor, usually I’m at the 2nd floor when I eat alone. There’s an event there, so that’s why. 
  • I chatted with Ms. Joy about Asian dramas while I asked for the Brunei SUT 2005. So much lels.

Fealty to Words

  • I finally finished reading the book, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I think it has been a year or more since I’ve started it. Lels.
  • I realized this morning that I should review basic economics and the use of  data analysis softwares I used before such as R, E-Views, Stata. This is because I recently applied to other job opportunities and I think I need to refresh myself on what’s written on my CV. Hehe.  
  • I read My Family’s Slave today and got teary eyed. The piece was beautifully written but I felt sad on how the life of  a person be controlled by others until her last day in the world. What was her purpose? Was it just to be a slave? I think the redemption part is kinda too late. This made me value and think more carefully about the choices I make and will be making in life.

Break away from oblivionย 

  • Rhea and I are officially Facebook friends. 
  • Glad to have helped Ate Ren about I/O tables of KAZ. 
  • I think I need to watch what I eat. I usually eat merienda because I go home late and eat dinner at home. A while ago, I ate egg salad sandwich and vanilla ice cream. Do you think it’s too much? Lels. Anyhoo, I also need to watch my caffeine intake because my insomnia is coming back. 
  • Finally, Jungbrahimovic goodies are here!! Saranghae, oppa!

Unexpectedly nice turnout

  • MRT was broken. Damn, I hate commuting. I took an Uber worth 300 pesos + because I had a meeting at 9am. Fortunately, it was moved to 10:30am. But bye bye 300 pesos. 
  • I think my boss was promoted because he has a new office, the ones with outside view (that’s sort of a factor for higher ups) Way to go, Kuya J! Lels. Also he was cool and nice as ever when we discussed. 
  • I met Linh, Aika’s Vietnamese friend from Jenesys, (her groupmate). We (also with Raymond and Rhea) had lunch at the ADB caf. She’s bubbly and nice.

Bonday (lels corny)

  • Raymond, Aika and I had lunch today, together again hahaha.
  • I was multitasking in the afternoon, balancing I/O table and watching Ginebra vs Alaska game through my phone. 
  • Neens and I had dinner at Salang, a Korean resto which played #Jadine songs, super lels. We ate beef bibimbap and kimchi pajeon. The serving size is totally worth it so it’s ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ for me. We also ate cotton candy ice cream, check my IGS. Hehe.

Food+Movie weekendย 

[Friday, May 5, 2017]

  • I ate Korean food (first time in a long time) from the cafeteria, beef bulgogi and kimchi! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท
  • Dinner w/ Gem and Aika at Makansutra plus bread/pastry shopping for pasalubong
  • I am glad that I survived a week of not using earphones while commuting. It’s kind of refreshing to just observe and reflect to whatever.

[Saturday, May 6, 2017]

  • I cleaned my room (first time in a long time too) but not thoroughly, hehe.
  • I watched Ashby, movie starring Nate Wolff and Emma Roberts and an old guy, who portrayed the role of Ashby. I expected a lot from the movie but it was generally nice and touching.
  • I also watched Werewolf Boy, starring Park Bo Young and Song Joong Ki, while waiting for Ate Alyssa to come home from a bday dinner. I love how Bo Young never gets old, she has not changed at all. The movie was fantasy because Joong Ki was like a mutant, hence werewolf boy not like the werewolves in Twilight. Lol. I recommend you to watch it.

[Sunday, May 7, 2017]

  • We attended Mass at 9am, the usual, but Yari was not with us since she’s at her dorm in Manila, reviewing for boards. Fighting, Yars! ๐Ÿ’ช
  • I watched The First Time, a movie included in the list of undderrated rom-coms you should watch by Buzzfeed. It has the highest IMDB rating among the list that’s why I decided to watch it first. It’s cute and nice so I was rooting for a very good ending but it was so so. Nevertheless, it focuses on the dialogue/conversations, like Before Sunset series but millenial version. Lels.
  • We had dinner at Locavore, near Burgos Circle in celebration of Ate Belle’s birthday. Sizzling Sinigang and Lechon Oyster Sisig got a 10/10 each for me. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ
