A Super Friendship

Today is the birthday of my Superfriend Nice. She just turned 30. Our friendship started way back in college. I can’t believe we’ve been friends for like, 12 years already? Wow! I’m just so thankful to have a friend like her.

Yes, we call each other “Superfriend” to distinguish our friendship from the other friendships we have in life. I think the term fits perfectly because we treat each other not only as a friend but as a sister.

New Workmates

We have three new tour guides at the restaurant and I’m glad about their arrival. Now I have “alternates” to cover for me when I suddenly get unavailable for work. I have known one of the new tourguides for years already (she’s my recruit!) and so we don’t have to go through the getting-to-know-each-other stage anymore. The other two tourguides I have only met twice and we haven’t really broken the ice yet, if you know what I mean.

Work feels more like play when you are in good terms with your workmates. I’m lucky that I tend to get along with my workmates easily, both in the office and at the restaurant. I guess it’s because I try to be a natural. What you see in me is what you get from me. I hate pretending, though sometimes, I really can’t help but apply the “plastic theory” (my Superfriend and I invented this concept!) to those rare people who feel they are superior over others.

A Wedding Blog

Ever since I got engaged to the fiancee, the idea of creating a wedding blog has been brewing in my head. I think that a wedding blog will be beneficial not only for us as we plan our wedding but also for our guests who would surely like to get updated on the developments in our big day. It’s a great idea, right?

When I had some free time the other day, I finally put up our wedding blog. It’s a very humble blog with simple layout and straightforward content. This is where I am documenting everything about our March 2012 wedding. I’m so excited about filling it with informative, wedding-related posts!

Greek Blue

I have always been fascinated with the color greek blue. It looks fresh, bright, vintage, earthy and natural. The white and greek blue theme is commonly seen in many Greek communities, particularly in Santorini. Some people even prefer saying Santorini blue instead of greek blue.

My fascination with greek blue has brought me to painting our kitchen cabinets with this exact, same color. Our kitchen cabinets are still being made. We’re still waiting for the tiles on our sink area to dry up. This is where the cabinets will be hung. I’m so excited to see the end result. Greek blue cabinets, marble-like peach tiles and white walls sound like the perfect color theme to me! At least, for our humble kitchen.

Life’s Little Worries

When things get worrisome, I’m the first to react. I worry a lot, you know. I even used to be a serious negative thinker. But my worries are never shallow. They have bases. They can happen. Oftentimes, though, my worries go away on their own. It’s either I have devised a plan to avert the problem or I have received God’s graces just when I needed them.

One of the things I worry about is my parents’s well-being. They’re growing older and older by the day. Soon, they’d get sick and would need substantial health care. I hope and pray when that time comes, I’d be capable of helping them. Like I could afford getting them adult diapers at disposablemedicalexpress.com and pay for their hospital bill. That’s why I’m saving up money to be able to get them reliable health insurance. The earlier I can do this, the better.
