The unexpected happened. I GOT SICK! Not just the typical flu but German Measles. I had to file a leave for 7 days which was bitter-sweet. Bitter because my salary on the next payday will obviously be lower. Sweet because I get 7 days of freedom from my work! I was really relieved because I was growing tired with my work and I really needed a weeks rest. ^__^ Sorry, no picture of me with a swollen and red face, I forgot to take one.
By request - Bigger Better Burgers lunch date with the birthday boy.
We went to church after then he walked me home. ♡
Me and my boyfriend really wanted to buy new running and training shoes ever since we started becoming active in exercising, boxing, running & biking. I then asked my friend Jaf what brand is the best when it comes to quality and is affordable... Mizuno was her answer. I researched and found out that Mizuno has a factory outlet in Paseo de Sta. Rosa which was a bit close to my boyfriend's house. I was pretty excited because we were talking about it for almost a week! When we got there there were also factory outlets for Nike, Addidas and other sports outlets - but I really got my eye on Mizuno, I couldn't wait to get to their store.
When we got to the store, luckily enough, one of the staff there was my boyfriend's classmate in high school. His name is Buddy and he attended to our every need. He checked out feet first, the arch, whether we're flat footed or if we have a high arch. For me, I have a med-high arch and my boyfriend has a low to almost a flat foot. After knowing our feet we were off to search for our perfect running shoes. I ended up buying MIZUNO WAVE PRECISION 12 in red. I really feel it cushioning the arch on my feet ^_^ and my boyfriend ended up buying MIZUNO WAVE CREATION 12 in yellow. Then we ate a hearty meal at Kenny Rogers.
Funny story... the moment we entered Kenny Roger's there was a table of men with 2-3 women who all of a sudden became quiet and looked at us strangely. Then while Billee and I were waiting for our order we figured out why they stared at us.. or rather Billee. The group of men were gay! They all laughed hysterically which gave them off. We were surprised that they were all gay!!! They were prying on my boyfriend! Hahaha My boyfriend asked if I was jealous, well I said no. They're men, why would I be jealous right??? I was amused tho, he's a gay-magnet. He told me a few incidents where he was hit on by gay men but this was the first time I experienced it first-hand. It was weird! Wahahaha

Ever since the word "SELFIE" came out I've been very hesitant in taking photos of myself but this particular month I felt that I was so pretty that I just had to take a photo or yeah... a SELFIE.
I once came upon a website that listed 30 things you should do before you turn 30 and to be honest I wanted to do all of them before hitting the big 3 - 0. And I had the spur-of-the-moment kind of thing ----- I want to go to Tagaytay by myself! So I did, I searched on the internet on places where I can chill & enjoy my day, JOY's day.
I started the trip at 8 am, I took a jeep from Prinza and walked to get to the old Tropical Hut near St. Dominic's Hospital & waited for buses that woud take me to Tagaytay. It was a cold day, a good sign that it'll be an awesome day.
The bus dropped me off at Mahogany Market - medyo sablay lang kasi dapat nagtanong na ako kung saan yung Puzzle Mansion para derederecho na biyahe ko papunta dun coming from Cavite. Hahahaha - I asked around on how I could get to Puzzle Mansion. They said that I have to ride a bus or a jeep going to Alfonso and asked to be dropped off at the corner of Brgy. Asisan. So I did ^___^.
I asked how much my trike fare would be... sai ni Manong 60php daw. I haggled and asked kung pwede 50php na lang... and he agreed hehehehe yeah!
Here are more pictures of me hahaha LITERALLY
And that is me... enjoying my day in Tagaytay. 'Till my next adventure!!!
Me and Eric met up at SM Sucat to give our pasalubong to Tinnie & Tintin's friend, Wil. It was almost a year ago when I last saw my friend Eric. We had a meaningful conversation about where we were at that time, the rejections we experienced in work, in our career. We were both bitter at first but as we went on with our small talk, we gained acceptance and offered it to God. And here we are now, HAPPY & CONTENTED not just with our jobs but with our own relationships.
Did nothing but search about DIYs the whole day. I found DIYs for accessories, clothes, furniture & food. ^_^ I was only able to do two DIYs because #1 I HAVE LIMITED RESOURCES & #2 Some DIY requires me to do it outside and since the rain is pouring hard, I couldn't. :| ANYHOO, here's my D.I.Y. for today.
I really enjoyed doing the bracelet. Now I can reinvent my bracelets that haven't been worn in years. I also wanted to try the DIY rings but I gotta buy materials first.
Thank you Pinterest for keeping my afternoon busy. I've already listed DIYs that I'd do in the future, I'm excited about it! Some of what I listed can be given as gifts, its personal and inexpensive. And since December is just around the corner I think its the perfect way to show people how thoughtful you are and how much effort you put into the gifts you are giving them.
