1 Step Forward, 2 Steps Back

So, I kind of worked out earlier this afternoon. I was supposed to do 2 rounds of pushups, squats, laydown pushups,.. you know what, I forgot..ganon siguro ako kabilis mag move on.
Nagpahinga na ko, had dinner, and took a shower. It's only 20 past 8. My bed time is at 1am.
What I really want to say is.....di pa ko nagtotoothbrush. For.. you know that I want to eat something might happen. Huhuhu. I had Kit-Kat after dinner. And my gym membership is nasasayang na.
Oh well.

072717thu014621

It’s July already and I haven’t blogged for a while. I promised myself that I will post something tonight and that is exactly what I am going to do.
Thought vomit.

#StillThinkingofanicehashtagfortheWedding
We’re engaged! Well, for 5 months now and we’ve only booked the church and our OTD coordinator. Is this procrastination? Maybe. Maybe not. Ewan ko ba sa mga nakakausap kong supplier/s parang ayaw pa magpa book. Though pagdating sa photo/video, medyo kasalanan ko. Indecision! I can’t seem to make up my mind. Since sobrang dami pagpipilian, nakaka overwhelm. Not a good time to talk about commitment issues, pero I can’t help but think, “Pag na-book ko na si p/v 1 and find out na mas madami inclusions si p/v2, pano yun?” Mga ganon. Pero ang totoo nyan, sa dami nang nakita kong p/v, there’s this videographer that I really really really want!!! Huhuhuhuhu, di pa din ako maka move on. But his rate is twice what we can afford for both photo and video na. Videoboy! There, sinambit ko na. HUHUHUHU.
*pause*
*regains composure*
Anyway, a year away ‘til the big day! I’m anxious and excited at the same time.

Random Recent Ganap
  • Modern Family – medyo minarathon ko sya simula nung nagka copy ako ng season 1 few months back. Naka habol na ko sa current season. I heart Phil Dunphy
  • Glitch in the Matrix – kaadikan with this sub in Reddit that talks about inexplicable experiences. They are not ghost stories; more like the guys who are in charge of “everything” made booboo and someone noticed it. Ah basta, go look it up in Reddit.
  • (Not) Peril  jam last 070117 – only the second time I’ve seen them play, sayang kulang pa ng isa.
  •  Game of Thrones Season 7 – only 2 episodes as of this writing, naiyak na ko! *spoiler alert* So ganon na lang ba talaga Nymeria? Past is past?
  • Kita Kita movie date – I must say, na-entertain ako ng movie na to. Sana ganito na lang palagi sa local film scene.
  • Orange and Lemons! – reformed as a trio (sans Mcoy ) but still, one of my favorite bands ever!       
  • Design Home– it’s this app that brings out the interior designer in you. Ang saya mag furnish ng space lalo na kung madaming pera!
  • Tisay – our landi cat had babies again. Di talaga namin house cat si Tisay, she just forced adopt herself dito. So most likely, ba-bye Tisay once the kittens are medyo malaki na.
  • Verizon Philippines 10th Year – 072817 – the celebration started today. Woot woo! How long have people been asking whether or not they will outsource everything and close this center? Kapit lang mga beshie!


July Playlist
Let Me – Orange and Lemons

Brigada Eskwela 2017

Natutuwa ako at medyo nagiging active ang office namin sa mga community activities such as this. Second time mag sign up ni Vz sa Brigada Eskwela.Hindi ako naka-join nung first one dahil sa conflict ng schedule (nagpaliwanag talaga).But I really wanted to sana.
This year we volunteered at ParaƱaque National Highschool last May 20th. We started with a prayer, tons of picture taking, at palugaw from the school. At around 9am we started sanding the chairs.  

Varnished chairs -- we didn't  work on these though


Sandpaper for smooth surface. 
Grey shirt - I want to make you my official volunteer tee. Same one I wore during #TeamGranny0320

Teamwork! Thank you  girls for coming up with the idea of soundtripping while working. Made it more fun less work.


Good work guys!

Miss NelleRaq. Nagc-cut ng klase, wag tularan!

I am glad sharing my time, even though just a little bit to help with the preparation of this school for the upcoming school year. Hoping for more volunteers in the future. 
Education first!

MyBus Cebu Appreciation Post

Isa sa mga naka-allot sa budget ko when going to Cebu is yung cab fare going to and from Mactan International Airport.
If one is not familiar with Mactan International Airport, posible mapamahal coz of the Airport cab na nagaabang right outside ng arrival area.
When I was waiting in queue sa regular cab, napansin ko on the other side na may bus na bago - just like the ones in Singapore. Naisip ko baka airport loop - same nung sa NAIA (from Pasay). And I thought, there must be a cheaper way employees commute to the airport. Di naman practical to take a cab everyday to and from. I asked friends pero nag cab na din ako pa-city. So ayun confirmed nga.



end of sharing..or not...


Alabang to NAIA Terminal 3.

Coming from Cavite, Alabang ang madalas na way ko pa-airport. From Alabang nag Grab ako kasi may promo naman. Feeling ko nakatipid na ko (less Php 200)!
Few days after I came back, I found out na may Airport Loop pala sa Alabang -- that goes straight to Terminal 3 via Skyway! Haay.  Andun lang sya katabi ng pila ng mga bus pa-Lawton. Nadadaanan ko yun almost everyday. Why did I not see it sooner! Well oo nga pala, nakita ko lang sya nung nag start ako sa morning shift -- which was after I came back from Cebu.
I don't know how much the fare is. And if they only use Beep Card (which was not a problem for me coz I have one). Oh well. Now I know.

Sarah and My Question





Our lives is more than the travel, eat out, purchase, concerts, movie dates, and all other mundane entities we make it appear on social media. A reminder dismissed as often as it is heard, “Life is short”. What can we do to make the most of it, when often times we are just making ends meet?
But why am I asking? I just heard the passing of someone I knew from my younger years. Isn’t it ironic, how news of someone’s passing reminds us to live – Live fully?
Sarah - She was part of my past. We were not close. Not even then and I was dependent on her as I was moved to an unfamiliar place and she was supposed to be my guide. I did not learn much about her as she was quiet most of the time. I was a young stranger who couldn’t speak her language she had to look after. She probably didn’t like me.
A close friend of hers wrote about her on Facebook, and though very sad of Sarah's sudden passing, she wrote “Cheers to a life well-lived”.
I asked myself if people can say the same about how I live my life?
I've been to places but very few.  I did things, some I loved and gave me sense of accomplishment, some as much I try to refrain myself, regret. I heard artists play their songs. It was probably an experience they either cherished or took for granted. I've eaten a lot - especially those of the good ones. I got sick from eating. I gave. I asked for help. I befriended strangers. But I have also burned bridges. I have loved. I've had my heart broken.
More than the things I did and I can remember, my life is how I am remembered. Those moments between words. My quiet time pouring my heart out in my journal. If He suddenly take this gift of life, would my loved ones raise their glasses? 
Sarah, may you rest in peace. 

And you. Life is short. Live life to the fullest!
