I have always believed that women can read minds, or at least sense things. The term ‘women’s intuition’ is no longer new. In the modern world, it is normally associated with infidelity when married guys cheat on their wives and the latter would find out about it either through body language or just by sensing that there is something wrong with the former’s behavior.
Women’s intuition is at play even outside marriage. In the workplace, for instance, I can easily tell if my co-workers like me or not. I don’t have to ask them. I just can feel it. I can also know by observing how they treat me as compared with how they treat my other co-workers.
Things are looking up in the office, aesthetically speaking. This morning, our director, who has a background in interior design, arrived and gave our office a sort of makeover. Immediately after, we found ourselves moving furniture, tables and cabinets. Several art works were hung on the wall which brightened our surroundings instantly.We also did some cleaning and decluttering to complement the mini renovation going on. After a few hours, our office looked a loooot better.
The size of the work place affects productivity in a good way, and so is its look. I, for one, get more motivated completing my tasks for the day when my surroundings look nice. But it’s not to say that I can’t work in a not so neat environment, because I can. I can even work just as good in a noisy place. So long as I’m not hungry or depressed, I can finish my tasks.
I didn’t plan to check out the mall-wide sale at SM Manila but for some unknown reason, I did go yesterday and made some purchases at the Department Store. I was with the boyfriend who, actually, was the one who did the shopping first. He went to the mall Friday night and bought two new pairs of expensive shoes. I got a bit envious of him and so, I also bought two new pairs of shoes. The only difference was that, my shoes were way cheaper than his (P350 and P440, respectively). I’m frugal, you know.
SM Manila’s 3-Day Sale started Friday (September 3) and will be ending today, Sunday (September 5). For this particular sale period, mall hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. When we went yesterday, the mall was jam-packed with people. The mere sight of the crowd could make anyone dizzy. But if you’re like me who enjoys shopping a lot, it won’t be much of a problem. Instead of looking around and minding other people’s business, I concentrated on scrutinizing the items I was interested in for defects. Continue reading “SM Manila’s 3-Day Sale and My Haul”
Finally. September 10, 2010 is a holiday! President Benigno S. Aquino III, through Proclamation No. 26, has just declared September 10 as a non-working holiday to be one with our Muslim brothers in celebrating the end of ‘Ramadan,’ the holy month of fasting. Formally, the festivity is called ‘Eid ul-Fitr.’
If I’m not mistaken, September 10 is the first and only holiday this month. Not bad. At least we still get some every now and then. Unlike the previous President, the current one isn’t too fond of holidays. Or so I think.
So, it’s Friday once again and everyone’s looking forward to the weekend. I want mine to be restful. I feel I need to rest so I could get rid myself of the cold and cough that has been pestering me for two weeks now.
Due to conflicts in schedule, my officemates and I postponed our Binondo trip once again. We were supposed to have dinner at Sincerity Café and Restaurant tonight as thanksgiving for our getting retained in the office. The new date we set is Monday next week. I hope we push thru with our plan already.
The boyfriend and I are like other normal, young couples today who celebrate this thing called ‘monthsary.’ Ours falls on the 18th and that’s the reason why it’s a big deal. We’re not overly romantic, though, so each monthsary is different. Sometimes we go out and watch a movie, other times we just have dinner and do some window shopping at the mall.
For this month, we decided to have dinner at Yellow Cab just stay home. Actually, it will just be him as I’ll be going straight to the restaurant tonight (my part-time work). We have some guests and as usual, the tour-guide is needed.
