Archive for December 2009
Okay, peace and quiet at last. Aside from the occasional ‘ka-boom’ that I’m hearing from afar, the deafening sound of fireworks and clanking of my mom’s improvised ‘gong’ to welcome the new year (and Sean Kingston’s riveting Beautiful Girl from the tweenies gathered outside of mom’s store) has finally faded. I can only hear my keyboard’s own rhythm as I am typing my very first blog this new year.
I finally found our cats – all four of them. They were gone for two hours, obviously terrified of the fireworks. Wonbin, our half-retriever, half-halimaw dog (according to unni’s hubby) has pooped and peed as expected. Poor babies. Now, Yumi is contented cleaning herself on my bed, probably getting ready to slumber.
I haven’t thoroughly cleaned my room but I tried my best with some of the clutter… it looks pretty decent. I painted my nails red (as in bloody red) just for the heck of it and I am enjoying my new full-banged look. I kind’a thought it looks fake (like Anne Curtis’ in Natasha’s catalogue) but Kuya says it looks just great.
I am somehow sad that we welcomed the new year without my unni but I thought that’s just how it is. That’s how it is when someone gets married in the family. And because of it, I am happy I am single. tee-hee… But I gotta find him soon, or better yet, he gotta find me soon! O, speaking of, unni and the hubby just arrived… Happy New Year I guess.
I’m not gonna rant about what might be in store for this new year… NOT YET. But I have this awfully magnificent feeling that it’s gonna rain AWESOMENESS this 2010.
Thank you God! And God Bless US all! =)
Some photos taken during a not-so-surprising visit from mah friend Wayne… He’s the last person I was hoping would not let me rot in E*** but he left me just the same… tsk… Oh well, life…
Ha.ha. Kiddin’ aside, kudos to your new life adventures mah friend *wink*
Oh no, not another mountain…
We conquered Mt. Makulot last December 19. I went without an eyeshut, thus, the headache and my controversial absence during the socials. Apart from my eyebags which were eating half my face, I was all wooozzy while trekking and all moody. It didn’t feel good. Oh, did I mention that I missed the socials?! After three rounds of grandma (a.k.a. Grand Matador), I succumb to dreamland.
I was compelled to stay in a tent ALONE. Good thing, the stories about the (white) lady who loved wedging herself between the girls’ tents weren’t circulating yet and I was too drowsy and painfully battling a severe headache to be scared. Slept really well but now that I think about it, it gives me the creeps with the capital C!
Here’s mah tent…
I didn’t do what I planned. I was meaning to jump off the cliff… JUST KIDDIN’! Actually, I was planning to throw my lungs out while shouting profanities to the air… to let out all the bad feelings I’ve had the past days, past weeks, past months, oh well, the past year. I wanted to call out for my ‘Dao Ming Xi’ who was probably straddling his own rock at the other side of the mountain… tsk…
The trail up Mt. Makulot was more challenging for me than Pico de Loro. Did I mention we traversed two mountains at one go?!? … with ‘hang-overed’ companions to boot…. woot!
More pics soon at my multiply because the internet is screwed up again… *SIGH*
I love the full-moon. I first noticed it last Tuesday when I was on my way home, riding a cab. It was so round and huge and I swear I can see some outlines of its craters with my bare eyes… nah, I’m sure it’s just my imagination but it’s just sooo beautiful!
It probably explains my erratic moods and behavior these past few days. In Filipino, I am in one of those ‘tag-baliw’ modes. It’s probably the cause of these weird feelings I’m having. Don’t ask…
