I got a lot of time today to blog, to download songs, to watch movie in the net and to browse for more Rob "Edward Cullen" Pattinson interviews in YouTube. Haha! I told you, I still have these vampire madness in me. And why I am doing all of these right now when I posted yesterday that we will try to finish all the buying and stuffs? Well, hubby was being called in the office, emergency and everything, coz he said they have a major virus outbreak. I even joked him; is it dengue virus or what? (lol!)
With me alone in the room gave me more time to do some gift wrapping job for the items we bought months ago. And here yah! the finished products =) And i'm still waiting for the delivery of my book shelf, so happy!
It's Friday today and I'm anticipating the 3-day vacation ahead since Monday is declared as holiday. We might have to grab this chance to run some errands in the mall and complete his shopping lists mostly for his godchildren. Hubby appreciate more on giving gifts rather than giving them money. He loves to see their faces lighten up when he gave them their gift. Hubby is such a soft hearted and just want to make everybody happy.
I planned to go to Quaiapo or Sta. Cruz tomorrow because we miss the place. It's been so long since we go there and we would like to eat in our favorite Chinese restaurant in Ongpin. We must be very careful though, as i said that this is also the season of stealing. I wish to bring my sister's medals that she want me to put in frame as our Christmas gift to her. I know in Quiapo we can have a good bargain and with quality.
We have so many things to do. And i said that this is really my lucky month coz hubby bought the book shelf I wanted and it will be delivered tomorrow! Wow, i can't wait to see it =)
I was bubbly and cheerful when I sat on my chair this here in the office this morning. I was talking about the Twilight movie that they want to watch too this weekend. At least, I have another motivation on this job which I really eager to leave each day. Actually, when i answered an organizational survey last Tuesday, all i wrote there were all our complains concerning our workplace ventilation and employees welfare. Since the survey doesn't need to include who you are, I might as well grab the chance to say what's really happening here.
And now, my joyous moods are all gone when I heard all the ranting and complains of one of the boss here and she can't even listen up to my office mate's explanations. She just keep on telling us that we are doing is wrong and we should follow the process, don't change it, and she keeps on coming here in our area when she thinks she has another bomb to explode right down in our face. She was just like that the whole week and we are wondering why.
I guess some good things never last. I might practice a never-mind-them face here. Oh, well.
Because I was able to watch Twilight movie just now! First day of showing and it feels really great! Whoa! The Edward Cullen mania were visible inside the movie theater when he first showed up in the big screen. And i admit, I feel like a teenager again (giggling a lot) even when my hubby's beside me. He just smiles coz he knows how far I can "like" a certain Hollywood actors and eventually stop when the fever is over. So, he was kind of used to with me like that =)
So the proof is here and I told him that I will keep this ticket till the last movie of Twilight saga will be shown in theater. And i will place it per every book. How's that? (haha!)
Happy because we went to check some book shelves in the hypermarket and I saw one that I really want and the style, it fits. I sweetly told him that's the one I want for Christmas and he answered that he taught the book set were his gift. But i argue that how are my books without a proper book shelf? He thinks I am being clever but I am =) And so, this weekend, we will buy the book shelf in SM. Yeheey!
See, November is quite a lucky month for me. Let's see how my December would be.
Hubby with the rest of his family decided to go to Pampanga today. I can't go with them, i was enlisted in the last batch of attendees for our e.performance training and i might not be evaluated if i don't attend (really, it's been a swift scapegoat not to go there too!) My sister willingly allowed us to borrowed her car. And they off to go....
Hubby text me they are on the way home now though i'm not really alone, Chase is with me and he is dead tired from barking the whole day in my sisters house in Pasay (where they dropped them before they hit the road going to Pampanga)... I scanned some Youtube videos of Rob Pattinson (my newest hollywood crush) and downloaded some songs in limewire. I was jotting some notes on our Christmas lists and hubby's long line of godchildren. And it gives me a head ache =)
Yes! I finally finished the forth book of the Twilight Saga. I was stunned by the sudden twists of events in the book and we know that the story was just as impossible to be real - but still, i really can't help smiling after reading the last book, we all love to see a happy ending right? And Stephenie Meyer surely gave that to us. The books can now be added in my collections and it really felt so good reading.
When hubby and I came home from the mall, we're surprised with the heavy Christmas basket that our family friend sent us. Wow, the goodies in there were really yummy! And i just thought if i could just display it right across our dining table beside the Christmas center piece I made. And it looks perfect! Hehehe, i hope it will stay there till Christmas... and if hubby won't raid the basket =)
Hubby asked me last night that if maybe we could visit his Aunt in Pampanga on her birthday next week. He wants to borrow my sister's car so everyone could come along. I don't know what to say, but really, I don't want to go there. Leaving from work is easy, I know - I still have lots of t that I can use till December. The problem is - I don't feel I can take a minute or an hour being on his cousin's house. I just don't want to be there no matter how i want to heed on his request. I know I hurt his feeling on the direct "No" answer from me but its better than to asked him when we are already there to leave and go back home. I still have those not so good memories and encounters with his cousin and I don't want to ruin their party because I can't blend in. It just happen that his favorite Aunt (which I also fond of) is living in his i-don't-want-to-see cousin's house. I have lots of reasons and i know he understand me, he can asked for everything but i don't want to smile and be happy when i know i'm stirring inside. I am not ready and he knows that.
Well, i know we can still talk about it.
By the way, i still can't get over with my vampire mania. And i got really frustrated when i found out that the movie Twilight will be shown here by next week and not this week! I'm reading the book 3 ( eclipse) now and i already read the unpublished draft of Stephenie Meyer's book entitled Midnight Sun, i hope she will be able to change her mind and finish the book which i know will still be a bestseller because it is the story of Edward Cullen - his thoughts and feelings and his views. I'm begging hubby not to insist on playing a network game this week for i want to concentrate on reading (hahaha!) i said once i am over it then i'm back to my real world (lol!) Hay, it good to be in love, human or inhuman you may be... haha!
"I told you so." I said to hubby when the whole Sunday and last night that he can't seems to interrupt me while reading the books of Twilight. And as i finished reading book 2, entitled New Moon, I said to myself i have to halt on reading because i will feel the withdrawal syndrome once I finish the 4 books in 4-5 days time. But these books are really tempting, I'm in Bella Swan and Edward Cullen's world every time I sit in the couch or lay down to bed reading their story with only the side bed lamp is lighted. I even told Milet that i want to be a vampire (lol!)
And i can't wait to watch the Twilight movie that will be shown in our theaters soon! I picture Bella and Edward on how they really look in the book from this movie poster except that i know that Edward's beauty is beyond imaginable.
Yes, i was awed, a bit shocked and indeed surprised when hubby approached me carrying something on his hand. And he smiled at me and said he is going to buy these books. When I take a look at it, it is the entire Twilight Saga of Stephenie Meyer! To think I am planning to buy these books when i have our bonus next month. Really, hubby can read my mind. He knew that I love to buy that thing once i kept on looking at it every time we go on that place, and he remembers it. I know I said to him that i hate surprises but these books are one thing that i thank him for over and over last night.
For the past years that I completed the books of Harry Potter, he made an early reservation to any branch of National Bookstore for me to first read the books just like the others. And now, I have new books to indulge with that once I read it, I'll never stop till me eyes hurt. He said to me that it's my Christmas gift, and yes, I will settle with it.
Milet in her way of thanking those who joined her blog contest happily announced another give away contest!

It's Saturday and yes, It's payday...! My hubby said I'm lucky... Because God is really good that we got the money we are expecting and some of the expenses are being paid one at the time. We had in a financial crisis last few months when Tatay was hospitalized three times in 3 months. And we all know that expenses just didn't end after you checked out from the hospital. But we managed to pull it through. Maybe our strong willed spirits help us to make it through the rain.
I'm lucky today because hubby said i can have my salary and can buy anything i want without worrying of paying any bills. Wow! Isn't great?! But I'm not an impulse buyer and i'm not a big spender too. So, I just save most of it because next month will surely drain our atm.
We have a party to attend this afternoon. It's the 7th birthday of my high school best friend's daughter. Hay, time flies. And the next thing we know, it's her debut na. Hubby is in the office right now training his newly employed engineers. We'll pick him up before we go to the party venue. And i bet, after that we will go to the mall. Hubby never forgets to do that every weekend no matter how busy he can be.
I will start for a not so new work job here in the office tomorrow, it's been over a month since I trained a colleague in replacement on my very tedious work that i once had for more than 4 years. And now i can say that i'm finally free! (clap! clap! clap!)
Hmmm... i just hope i can adjust easily to my new work. Though i know a background of it, there are lots of new process and updates that i surely have to learn. But that is much easier than what I've been doing in the export department. And I'm so glad that i am here already.
And i have to welcome myself in the "new" world. =)
I spent my night last night coughing and I barely sleep so the result by morning - a truly head splitting headache. I tried to take a bath hoping the pain would go away but its still there and so I decided that I can't go to work and laid beside hubby and sleep again.
But sleeping didn't help a bit, it made me feel worse. Hubby got an early meeting and I know it will be one boring and painful day for me. I don't know why but this year is not a healthy year for me. I almost used all of my sick leaves at work because I had either a fever, cough, flu, ear problems etc. They don't want to leave me, really =(
So i drowsed in our bed and try to read my November issue of Readers Digest but my eyes seems drooling while reading so I stopped. I tried to open up the pc so i can blog but facing the monitor
triggers another headache so I lay down again. Here comes the heavy rain and the cold weather is inviting me to sleep but all I can do was to tossed and turned till I felt that my eyes are swelling trying to get some sleep.
Good thing hubby came home early. He was so worried that I skipped lunch and he knows that it's very unlikely of me (me ganun? =) and asked me if I have fever. He told me that most of his office mates have cough and flu. Hay, blame it to the weather and the global warming. But i hope I get well soon. Maybe I just need to rest but until now, the headache is still here but it's quite tolerable unlike yesterday.
I can't say no to hubby asking me to stroll in the mall yesterday though I'm tired and sleepy from decorating our house for Christmas. Good thing Mico was there to lend his little helping hand giving me some things I needed so I don't need to get down and up while decorating.
We bought some Christmas pillows for our sofa set and my hubby wants to maintain the "green" motif of our decorations. But i put some gold touch on the others coz pure green looks bland to me. I didn't assemble the Christmas tree yet; I need to finish my check list first so I can buy them all in one shot.
And with the prices of the decorations went up when I d
id some window shopping yesterday, I know it will be a big slice to our budget. But it really feels good seeing those lights and decors in your home. It's so relaxing.
And before we headed home, we stop by at Cheesecakes, atbp and ordered Berry Blue and Mango cheesecakes, yummy!
I decided not to go to Laguna this weekend to do this plan - a major room clean-up. Hubby wants me to put some Christmas decors on our room so that when he wakes up in the morning he can feel that Christmas is really in the air (ha-ha!) We are the best tag team ever in decorating our house. He always supports me in that aspect and he believes in my home fashion taste.
And imagine cleaning up our room wall to wall, I suddenly collapsed to one side and gasp for air. It was so hot and I'm sweating all over (well, good for the fats) and the hubby immediately ordered McDonalds for our snacks. Wow! I was so touched! When I asked him why Mcdo and not just bread and Coke from the nearby bakery, he said this is very unusual of me and he has to order good food for his wife who's doing a tedious job. Ha-ha! what a compliment!
So tomorrow, I'll be checking our Christmas decors so I would know if I needed to change or throw or buy a new one. I bet the Christmas lights are definitely on the buy lists. Hmmm.... meaning I have another work to do.

I've been dreading this cough for days and the rain-shine weather never helps. Though i wanted to take antibiotics to treat it, I'd rather try some mucolytic medicines first.
As the Christmas season is nearing, so I've been hearing stories of stealing victims. Usually, those bag slashers, pick pockets, snatchers are all over the place.
You will never know when they would strike. I recognized a group of pick pockets who really dressed up nice and you'll think they are going to work and they usually do it in groups and on the bus victimizing innocent people's cell phones. Now that we are here in Paranaque warehouse, pickpockets roam in public jeepneys and fx taxi's and my office mate should be one of their victim but he sense right away that his cell phone is missing and saw it in the hands of the man beside him. Lucky him the man gave his cell phone back because they saw a traffic police near by.
We can help going to crowded places like malls in coming days, and we should be more careful not to bring big amount of money or your expensive cell phone for these are easy give away to them. Our former manager normally went to Divisoria Mall to buy some little items for us during office Christmas party. But when he fall prey to a group of pretty ladies that he said bumped him in the mall, he never went there anymore and so his gift giving also stops (lol!).

It's back to work. And with me are coughs, cold, sore throat and flu. I told my hubby last night that my immunity went weaker since the get married. Haha! I joke him about it since he told me that I'm making Mercury drug richer with all the medicines I'm buying. And today, never knew that it will rain, and i didn't bring my umbrella with me! Gosh, what a Monday!
Now, I'm nursing a headache and as the lady boss here said that it's still a holiday for us since most of my office mates are on leave today =) so, another work for me as back up =(
