It’s been a while since I wrote something thought-provoking…chos! I mean, it’s been a while since I made a long post of words. Well, I express myself better in writing than speaking because I have a tendency to loose myself (specially when I am angry) but on the other hand I am a very visual person. I understand and appreciate pictures and illustrations more than just plain long reading…specially if it is just pure lame, non-sense narrative. So here I am writing my thoughts (which can be non-sense to you) + pictures.
For the past two week ends (by week end here, I mean Thu/Fri) Rolex and I were out and about in Dubai for a little shopping spree a.k.a. "gift to self" and then last week we headed to Sur, Oman again for non-stop swimming.

We had so much fun but it’s not fun to come home and realize that you have a skyscraper of clothes to iron and Himalays of laundry (goodluck hon!). In addition, I need to prep my arms for the vacuum. Reminder to self: Land of Kaugahan = Carpets + Sand Storm. You can accumulate as much dust here that you can compete with J&J for manufacturing baby powder. One day, our friend’s 9-year-old daughter came to our house and told me to clean my laptop, haha! (it’s covered with dust because I dont get to use it that much, excuses!). It’s not that I hate cleaning the house but at the same time I don’t enjoy it. I am purely un-domesticated. Sometimes house cleaning is a stress-reliever or when you want to be on your own. I remember my housemate Mrs. Grogeous Anderson, a clean toilet only means one thing = fight with the BF. Just like cooking,it drains my entire adrenaline. I am lucky to have a husband who cooks well and who shares in the household chores but he can be lazy sometimes and glued to the computer all-day reading what happened to the world and how to take very good photos.
On the other hand, I succumbed also to the online world of malls. There are no gigantic malls here like what we have in the Pnas. There are only 2 Mango shops here, 1 Zara and 1 H&M and my clothes are limited there, period…and please note the malls (where carparks are wider than the mall itself) are located 2 hours from our home. On a positive note, my blog finally got a partnership with giant on-line shops such as shopbop.com and romwe.com. Don’t forget check out their trendy items here.
Lately, I have not been liking myself being always connected to the computer. In fact, I have ignored the TV. TFC sucks they moved that time slot of Kris TV and therefore I cant watch it when I get home from work. I hate teleseryes because they put the good ones on a very late sched (hello! Gigisingin ba ako ni Coco Martin kung ma-late ako?). Life here is stress-free. I have so much time and yet I have so much things undone. I need a little kick or a hard one to get my a** going.
1) I need to finish this book (on the last chapter now).
2) …So I can start this one (After he read this book, Rolex said that he wants to put Osama Bin Laden in blade slide which falls into a pool of calamansi juice).
3) Clean the house!!!!
4) Start boxing some stuff to Pnas to get away with excess luggage.
5) Make lumpia, macaroni salad, tuna carbonara (yes, I can whip these 3) and spaghetti (trying to get the taste I want, by BFF makes the best spaghetti in the world).
6) Plan our trip in July/ August (this is Rolex’ primary task).
7) ….and the scrapbook for our trips since 2009 until now still undone, not even started.
Good luck to me…
