Food, Friends and Fretfulness.

Oh wow. The past week was such a blur, never got to put anything here. As you all now, I am staying 5 days a week at our little room along Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue. Just sucks that we don't have internet connection just yet (currently, we are using Fritzie's iPhone as a personal Wi-Fi hotspot…

As defined in Dictionary.com, the word independence means "freedom from the control, influence, support, aid, or the like, of others." I would like to think I have some degree of independence in my life right now as I formally moved in with my college buddies this week. Yay! I am officia…

I already drafted (in my mind) how this post is supposed to start. I have been anticipating a dinner/get-together this whole week with my wavemates* to celebrate our first year at work. Not once has our team been out to have drinks or to eat, so, I figured our employment at this company turning a year might be a good reason for us to finally go out. Here's what's on my mind:

I fret not because I started the weekend with these happy people:

Energizer bunnies.~ Jen, TL Eve, Marjorie (aka Marjune), Che and Keith
Prior to marching our tired, a little sleep deprived selves to Greenbelt, we agreed on watching Madagascar 3  and eating dinner and/or have a few drinks wherever we would feel like it. I saw this sign of the restaurant Bulgogi Brothers that I really wanted to try because I miss eating Korean food but then again who am I to decide (Hahaha. JOKE!) and we ended up eating at Mesa. Hehehe.

Here comes the rainy days.

As we start a new month, a new season has also arrived. I've always anticipated the wet season every year after months and months of aridity. And boy, did the rainy season greet me with such a surprise! Well, the first two days of rain brought knee-deep flood to our nice, little village making…
