Blurry weekend

Tuesday, another day to start of the work week. Thank you for the additional day off, happy MLK day to all those living in the U.S.

I started the weekend, Saturday with a bang! After work, my friends and I visited the National Museum, Intramuros, and had late lunch at the famous Ilustrados Restaurant. Nightime came, I still was not able to rest. My highschool batchmates came to our house for our alumni anniversary. Needless to say, when they left past midnight, I was in bed after cleaning up.

Sunday, I spent half of the day sleeping and the rest of the day watching movies with my sister Krissy. We finished 4 movies: Nowhere Boy (which I found very interesting since I love The Beatles), Green Lantern, Moonrise Kingdom (adored the characters), and Django (unfortunately, I fell asleep because it was too long).

Monday came and I was excited!!! Dad brought us to our new “kubo” in the middle of Laguna Lake. We had so much fun and being the eldest, I had to cook. Good thing there is google and “magic sinigang mix”. If not, I can’t imagine how and what will my sinigang version look and taste for that matter. Lol! We also had fried porkchop, stuffed milkfish and watermelon. Happy tummy!!! After lunch everyone was sleepy so we all took a nap while the wind was blowing hard. *mental note* bring a comforter next time 🙂

Tuesday!!! Tada!!! I made a decision to let go  my huge earrings collection. “Twinkle the star”, my online dream shop was born. Can’t believe that after so many debates I had with myself, I finally did it! I’m letting them go and though tears swell from my eyes, this is for the best. I just know it, mom was right… I can’t wear them all together.

Realizations:
1. I can be a homebuddy 🙂
2. Material things are really not that important.
3. Family comes first.
4. I should drink more water than coffee.
5. Cold weather makes me 20% more emotional than normal.
6. I should sleep more and read more.
7. I should really sleep or drag myself to sleep even if I don’t want to, like what’s happening now.

Hope you had a great one dear friends 🙂

My usual weekends with #NueveD

Saturdays and Sundays are my favorite part of the week, simply because there’s no work and I get to spend time with my family and close friends. Last Saturday, though I was tired to death from singing the fun didn’t end there.

As you know, I have 8 close girl friends, they are actually my high school friends and up to now, we are still together (though technically, the other one is currently living and working at Saudi Arabia). Our house falls in the middle of all houses, so I guess that is one reason why we always stay here at our place. Since they have been a normal part of my daily life since high school, they can come and go as they please, these girls know where to go and they are welcome 24/7.

Normally, we would talk about everything and anything under the sun. We love to eat together while chatting non-stop. I thank GOD for these wonderful friends whom I consider sisters for life.

They arrived while I was sleeping, they bought food so I left them in the dirty kitchen . Look how busy they are!

Cooking has never been this fun right?

Three girls busy with food preparations, one girl busy texting, one girl busy chatting.

We can’t find the can opener, so the meat loaf turned into this. Not so presentable looking right?

Ron, Sheera, Bham, Ghel, Mafel, Jhong and Jambi 🙂

Myself, Sheera, Bham, Ghel, Mafel, Jhong and Jambi

TADA!!! FOOD!

Chicken mami ala king by Jambi… with orange toppings!

Our own version of “Pandesal Crust with sliced Maling and Egg in the middle”. Tastes great actually!

Thanks Jhong for your perfect “Home made Iced Coffee”. Finally after the third attempt, there are not more coffee bits left! *peace*

Sending our kisses to Belah, our dear friend in Saudi Arabia. We miss your Angelina Jolie pout!

I guess this is a vision of a drunken person, haha!

I was laughing all the time because of the things they were saying. I couldn’t help it!

Marco is serious and Jhong is… checking her phone?

The drunken laughter echoes through the night.
