Wanna know what I did this long weekend aside from eating? Well, I slept a lot! As in a looooooot. And it made me feel better. That’s why I heart long weekends. It allows me to do the things I love doing the most. Now I’m very much prepared for work tomorrow. It’s gonna be a busy week because we have several events to organize. I’m up for them all.
If there’s one thing I don’t lack in, it would be sleep. I get as much sleep as possible not only because it’s good for my health, but more importantly, because I love sleeping. Sleep and I are like best friends. We love each other’s company. We enjoy spending time together. I’m also glad that I don’t have insomnia, a kind of sleep disorder that afflicts people regardless of age, sex and nationality. Being an insomniac must be really hard and sad and frustrating.

Last Sunday night, I got to clean up my closet and got rid of a pile of old clothes. One of my mom’s friends visited her in the house the other day. They haven’t seen each other for a long time and so they did a lot of catching up. I think they spent the entire afternoon chatting about each other’s lives and those of their other friends (now that’s not just chatting but gossiping, haha).
When her friend was about to leave, she asked my mom if we had old clothes to give to the less fortunate in their community. I thought the timing was perfect because I had kept a bag of old clothes to be given away to whoever wanted them. When I told her about it, she was elated and thanked us profusely.

Another long weekend is approaching and I’m one of those who are giddy with excitement about it. I need a break, and this is the kind of break I need. I have a few previous commitments but other than that, I’m good. If I get lucky, I might be able to spend the rest of the long weekend with my family in our Cavite abode and we might just push thru our swimming plans.
Speaking of our home, I just learned from mom that our electricity is back. Last week, an electric wire (the one connected to the electric meter) suddenly exploded. We were all here in Manila and it was our neighbor who reported it to us. She said it could be because of the heavy rains or something to that effect. It was a good thing we left the house with the main electric switch turned off so it was not affected by the power explosion. The repair alone cost me over a thousand pesos. When I paid for the electrician’s labor services, I knew I could no longer lend my brother money to buy one of those sleek samsung digital cameras he was eyeing online. So sorry, bro. You will have to wait next month for that.

Today I have received the saddest news ever. My co-worker at the restaurant died yesterday, moments after giving birth to a beautiful baby girl. According to her husband who delivered the sad news from Iloilo, she had suffered severe blood loss and that was what caused her demise.
As much as I mourn for the lost of my co-worker who was also a friend to me, I can’t help but think about her baby’s future. Now the baby is partially orphaned. Yes, she still has a father to take care of her but being mother-less is a painful reality that she has to face very soon.

Last night at the resto, we had one big group of culinary students as guests. If I’m not mistaken, one third of them were Koreans. I happened to serve them during dinner and they were a cool bunch. A little noisier than usual, but they were generally nice.
It’s funny because right after work, I immediately resumed watching my fave Korean drama. From Korean to another Korean, haha. I would have wanted to finish one more episode but our internet connection suddenly acted up. I also wasn’t able to finish the movie I’ve long wanted to watch because of that. Which made me thought about getting analog digital online, just so I could have more choices (when it comes to Korean dramas and Hollywood movies) and better viewing experience.
