Back to December

Hello everyone! I know we’re all positively looking at the new year ahead of us, well it’s mid-month already I’m sure you guys have accomplished a lot of things, teehihi.

Me, in such a big dilemma. I used to love my job. It used to be so much fun, stress and “burnout” are terms that I rarely use – in fact it’s just now that I’m describing my work life as such. Its making me sad because I’m not use to these emotions towards my work – I know (probably telling myself everyday) that change is inevitable. Its something that I must learn to accept, but some things are so difficult to accept. I’ve been reading motivational articles everyday to help me get through – I’m just glad that most of the articles I’m reading are helpful enough – I know that I’m finding it hard to accept things because it doesn’t go my way…I think of it as an obstacle that I don’t want to deal with instead of a “challenge” that I must overcome.

So now I’m starting to let go of the negative vibes and trying my best to look for positive things that’ll make me feel good – but I am considering a change in career.

How I wish I could tell you guys more about my job – but I’d rather share the things we did last month that ended my/our year with a blast!

Ever since I started working, I’ve been celebrating my birthday at work, which is actually what I prefer. But this time, it’s different. I chose to celebrate it with the closest people in my heart. Just a simple celebration – but deep inside, I’m jumping for joy because I am surrounded with good,fun loving people, I am thankful for this life that I have – work is the only challenge I have, I can Β do this!

December, my birth month

Hey guys! I haven’t been blogging for a while…I was busy, seriously this time I was really busy, in fact I couldn’t get enough sleep so I feel sleepy like all the time.

Anyways, how are you guys? Haven’t been reading the blogs I’m following I feel terribly sorry…idk, for some reason it always feels good to be back πŸ™‚

There’s a lot of reasons why I got busy, I guess a lot of people gets a little busy during this time of the year, having to buy gifts, foods to prepare and programs or games/initiative at work that we have to join…festive na festive ang arrive πŸ™‚

This is what I love about Christmas season, all of a sudden the world seems happier…I get to be more thankful for the many blessings I have received not only for this year but the blessings I have received ever since I was born πŸ˜€

And yeah, as the title goes…December is my birth month, I turned 27 couple of days ago.

27 years full of blessings πŸ™‚

I told my mom not to prepare any food for my birthday since I’ll be out of town for the weekend, but she cook some Pancit Canton ( for long life ) and she bought me a cake, thank you so much Ma!

My new boss gave me a cake too πŸ™‚

Then last Saturday me and my closest friends went to Baguio, it was an absolutely incredible experience. I will definitely share our pics soon, I promised that I will share our pics in Tagaytay first. So I will do it, as soon as possible!

For now, here’s what I’ll share…

26 years of existence

Whew! It’s been a while! I’m sure everyone’s busy for the holidays and so am I – not so, I might have to do a last minute shopping for Christmas, my list is not yet completed…and to my godchildren, as early as now let me say sorry because I wont be able to give my gifts to you exactly onΒ ChristmasΒ day, because I’m gonna be so effin busy on that day, I’ll be off from work by 11am on the 24th and then I have to help my Mum prepare the food…we’ll make a lot of Graham Cakes – YAY! This is what I love about this season,lots of Graham Cakes!

Enihoos before I really start talking blogging about Christmas, just wanna share how happy I was the past few weeks, you’ll definitely see it on the following photos. Last November 27, my sister celebrated her 25th birthday and to share a little secret (well after this it wont be a little secret anymore πŸ˜€ ) from November 27 to December 12 we’re technically twins, I don’t know how to explain it, I don’t know how our parents did it, but I think it’s cool.

My sister and her new phone which is a gift from her significant other “JP”, we had lunch at KFC and the “Crema de Fruta” is really her request.

Our meal.

my favorite : snack box – fun shots and fries

Layne and JP : Me and Mum

Then the weekend before my birthday me and Mum has to go to Pangasinan to accompany my Lolo. He was here in Manila for a little over a week to have himself check, my Aunt recommended the herbalist I mention on my previous entry.My Lolo’s already 78 years old and he’s having a hard time peeing so that explains why we needed to go withΒ him – I’d rather not elaborate on my Lolo’s health condition, it’s making me sad.

It’s always nice to go home to Pangasinan. Love the simple life, fresh air, morning breeze which is way better compared to Manila, semi – primitive life because I don’t have access to internet while I’m there – hay! It would be really nice if I can go there as often as I want.

nice to see “Pogi” again.

Lots of Jackfruits! Love it! But those are not ripe yet.

Yeah, that’s a lot!

Poinsettia – Christmas Flower πŸ™‚

Baby Goat – cute!

Then last December 13, I celebrated my 26th birthday and I got my free pizza from Shakey’s – YAY!

We had Shirley Temples, Buffalo Wings, Caesar Salad, Vanilla Ice cream with strawberry syrup and the free pizza.

my sister πŸ™‚

Me and Mother

Mama , pa-demure look.

Teehihi!

Just thought of Rudolph the red nose reindeer πŸ˜€

Yum! This is sooooo good!

Many thanks to everyone who greeted me. Love u all!

There’s more reason for me to be happy, but I guess I’ll save it for next time. You’re done with your Christmas shopping yet?

I’m about start my list for 2012 πŸ™‚ have to start the year right so I’m thinking of letting go all the bad things in my life (including HUMAN) , should’ve done that long time ago, now I don’t know where to find the strength and courage to do this. What has got into me?
