It’s His Birthday!

Remember when I said October was such a heavy month for us when it came to celebrations? I wasn’t kidding. In fact, the celebration has officially begun. It’s the fiancé’s birthday today! I wanted to be the first to greet him a happy birthday so I stayed in his room until midnight. We were both tinkering with our laptops and minding our own businesses but when the clock struck 12, I just had to stop to greet him and give him hugs and kisses. Haha.

I can’t believe he’s 32 already (he’s four years my senior). How time flies! I’m happy to know that as he ages, his level of maturity and his sense of responsibility improve, too. He’s been such a loving, caring, nurturing, sweet, kind and patient fiancé to me. I really can’t ask for more. In our relationship, he’s the giver and I’m the taker most of the time. I guess it’s because of our age gap. Nonetheless, we get along very well and we love each other’s families. No counting of shortcomings and misgivings, just sharing pure and faithful love.

Yet Another Sad News

Two weeks after the passing of my Tita Lolit, we received yet another sad news from a cousin last night. Another sister of my father has died from stroke complications. She had been bed-ridden for months before breathing her last yesterday afternoon at the confines of her house in Muñoz City, Nueva Ecija. We are grieving at the moment because this happened to be a double blow in our clan.

Death is inevitable. You never know when it will strike you or someone you love. Sabi nga nila, una-una lang yan. Death may come fast and leave faster, but the pain and sorrow it brings can last years and for some, even a lifetime. I feel for the family of my Tita Bebe. I can’t imagine losing my parents myself. Though I don’t have too many memories of my aunt, her passing still saddens me.

My Wait for Christmas Bonus Starts Now

Catching a glimpse of my wallet this morning, thoughts of receiving Christmas bonuses from various sources flooded my mind. At work, we normally get our 13th month pay in November and the extra bonus in December, a few days before Christmas. I’m happy to know that this year, I’m not the only one receiving a bonus in our family. My brother D, who works as a teacher in a private Chinese school, is getting his share, too!

Have you started shopping for Christmas presents? Me, not yet. But I think I might join my brother in going to Divisoria soon to shop at the popular night market there. I miss shopping with him. Unlike other guys that dread shopping places, my brother enjoys shopping as much as I do. Shopping is actually a great bonding activity for us.

My IPL Laser Underarm Hair Removal Experience at La Estetica (Fourth Session)

After a two-week delay, I finally got my fourth IPL laser underarm hair removal treatment from La Estetica-Tomas Morato branch. As I still had two vouchers left and both are expiring this month, I thought of giving the other voucher to my sister J. We went to the clinic yesterday afternoon and we were finished in no time.

So far, I have observed that my underarms now have less and finer hair. My underarm hair used to be on the thick side, you know. They may be far from being hairless, but I can say I’m quite satisfied with the changes. I plan to buy new IPL vouchers but will choose a different clinic because I want to get more laser clicks. While my first IPL session from a different beauty clinic gave me several clicks per underarms, La Estetica during my second, third and fourth session only gave me four clicks each. As with most of you, I also want to get full value for my money.

Weight Loss Update: Happy at 130!

It’s been two months and 19 days since I started my new weight loss journey and I’m happy to report that I have already lost 8 lbs. It’s a slow but sure progress and I wouldn’t ask for it any other way. Currently, I weigh 130 lbs. This is a big achievement for me because I really wanna reach my ideal weight of 115 lbs. before the year ends.

Don’t ask me about my dietary habits because I don’t follow a particular diet plan. I just watch and record what I eat. I don’t even have the time or the drive to exercise. I live a sedentary life. As an office girl, I sit in front of the computer all throughout the day. But if you’re really insistent, I’d like to recommend the Ketogenic diet as I wanna try it soon. I heard even those with Sous Chef Jobs that have the tendency to overeat because they’re always in front of food lose weight with the help of this diet plan. Just google it to find out how it really works.
