Monday Madness

Today is the day that Filipinos unite to celebrate the victory of Catriona Gray winning the Miss Universe. We had to finish the pageant before leaving the house to do our respective activities.

It was very intense but I really felt that Miss Philippines has a big chance of winning the crown. Afterwards, I went to Robinson's Place Manila to claim my PRC license. I found it hard to find the exact location of the PRC satellite branch inside the mall as there was no signage that I could l follow eventhough I already asked 2 guards inside the mall on where I could find the location of PRC. I got kinda disappointed when I asked the direction as they didn't give me proper instruction since I wasn't that familiar with the mall. 

After a few minutes of searching, I was able to finally find the place. To my surprise, the line was already a little bit long. I arrived at past 12 noon since my appointment time was PM. So I had to patiently wait since the line was moving too slow. 

Finally, I was able to finish at around 4:20 pm. The steps were very simple but it took a long time since there was only one cahier for a flock of people. I was expecting I'd be able to do other errands that same day but unfortunately I wasn't.  Anyways, I got really hungry waiting in line so I decided to eat when I finished.

I was craving for spaghetti from McDonald's since I've been eating spaghetti from Jollibee these past few days. And also, since the weather was hot, I ordered Coke float. But I got really disappointed since the crew put too much ice in it. I don't think just because I didn't tell her to lessen the ice, that doesn't mean she'll put that much. It almost filled my cup with ice. I hope she should have put just enough ice.



Anyways, it's done so next I know better. I'll just tell the server, "Less ice please." LOL



Before going home, I remembered to buy a new laptop mouse because my old one isn't already working fine. It always double click even if I press it once and I already changed the battery so I decided to just buy a new one 'coz it sucks especially when I'm pressing the play button in YouTube.

What a day it was! It was already dark when I finished the things that I had to do. I had to do other stuff aside from PRC ID renewal. I was so damn tired...

Chill Time


As I've told you, I've missed a lot of foods that I've used to eat when I was here in the Philippines. Aside from that, I missed bonding with my friends. We used to eat and drink even if we just stayed at home. Just to chill sometimes. But these days, we meet to eat and drink at their home at least once a week. 

Since it's going to be a holiday the next day, my friend and I decided to hang out in their house. We ate homemade Nachos and barbecue.

Well, I'm going to miss doing this when I come back abroad.

Hello, December!

I've been in hiatus in a couple of countless months already and I've been inconsistent in posting on my blog for the past couple of years already. I've had a lot of pending posts which made me think if I'm still going to post them or just move on and post new ones. I've been into a lot of things. I've been very busy with work and other personal reasons which hindered me from writing on my blog. But I really wanted to update it with the things that I'm up to. So starting this December, I will try my very best to revive this blog with new stuff like travels, food, beauty and other random things since this blog of mine is like a sort of my online diary that I wanted to share with people.

I wanted to keep a very memorable long stay here in the Philippines so I wanted to write most of them on my blog. I will post a lot about foods especially Filipino foods as there are lots of food that I've missed eating ever since I started working abroad. So expect many food blog posts from me.

Fried Beans


I didn't know that the 'Bagiuo beans' that I know can be eaten fried. At first, when my flatmate told me that she will cook fried beans, it sounded weird to me and I couldn't imagine how it would taste. To my surprise, it tasted good. Just dip it in 'bagoong' with a squeeze of lemon or calamansi then eat it with rice and there you go, a very easy to prepare meal especially for those on the go.

Living with other people who came from different parts of the Philippines would definitely give me an idea of how they prepare their food. I also discover new recipes from which is really amazing because I can share them to my family when I go home to the Philippines.

Victoria's Secret The Mist Collection Sale

This is actually my second time to experience Victoria's Secret Sale on their Mist Collection. Imagine, you'll get to buy 2 pieces for only SR 40 wherein the original price of 1 is around SR 90, that means I can buy 4 pieces in that mount.

 

My first experience was not that good as there were many people inside the store that it wasn't that easy to move around the store to get your choice of scent. I mean there was not enough time to check the perfumes. What happened was that I just tried to grab the items that were near me and checked them out quickly then put them inside my shopping bag. There were many Filipinos who were also buying and most of them bought in boxes.

I didn't buy much, just for personal use and for 'pasalubong' when I go home to Philippines. I've noticed that some of our 'kababayans' bought by boxes. It's a looottt. I wish I could have bought that much also but I don't know if I'm going to be able to give them all as I've also bought other kinds of 'pasalubong' for my family and friends.

 

You need a little patience when shopping as KSA is a Muslim country, they observe prayer times. Stores are closed during these hours so we have to wait outside for the store to open again.

 

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get the Love Spell as it is the best seller here. At least other good scents are still available. Hehe

 

Yesterday (April 28, 2018), I wen't to Victoria's Secret again for their last day of Sale. I wasn't really that lucky as I was not able to get Love Spell again but luckily, I was ablet to get the lotion.

I feel like I love all the lotions that I got that I'm think twice if I'm going to give some of them or just keep them for myself (so selfish of me. Hahaha!).
