I can’t sleep. It’s four in the morning and I’m trying to learn korean. That can’t be normal.
Annyeong! (Bows down prettily.)
I’m supposed to be sleeping like a baby by now with all the walking that I did the whole day with Chaw and his family for their last day here at Singapore but I’m feeling rather awake, Dangnabbit.
I think this was because of Starbucks Green Tea I chugged down earlier with Chaw at Orchard.
I never learn, Do I?
So this is me while waiting for the new episodes of GOT to fully download. I’m wearing my ever comfortable ‘Beer Chang’ tshirt from Thailand that has holes in it already, but still I refused to throw it away. Haha! Why should I? This is probably the most comfiest T-shirt I have ever had and as long as I can still wear it, It’ll stay.
I’ve been thinking of going back to Siloso beach anytime next week with a bag of marshmallows, a good book and a bottle of banana milk along with me. That’ll be nice. Yeah.
PS. I really have to hit Prologue for a new book. I’m thinking anything John Green or Paulo Coelho? Hmm.. Yeah.
They say before you start a war,
You better know what you’re fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,if love is what you need, a soldier I will be.
I’m an angel with a shotgun,fighting til’ the wars won,I don’t care if heaven won’t take me back.I’ll throw away my faith, Babe, just to keep you safe.
Don’t you know you’re everything I have?and I, wanna live, not just survive, tonight. <3
So as I sipped away my raspberry tea from this sparkly tumbler I got from Starbucks, I thought I should blog about the few things about my trip to Manila like:
There’s actually a hundred few more things to list down but my new GOT episodes are fully downloaded and I’ve been dying to find out what happened to Sansa and Arya so I’m gonna end this now and catch up with the Starks!
Oh and before I end this, I just want to say that I’ll always be grateful for the people who tells me that they’re glad I’m in town and wanna hang out. Always. For those who texted, called and email-ed me, I promise to make it all up to you guys in July!
Yes, especially you, Chaw! (But I’ll see you here in SG naman so, not so sorry na. Haha! Starbucks soon! My treat! )
So, I’m back here in Manilaaaaa!
I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical at first about this trip because everything was done so last minute. But, I’m so glad to be home! I never thought it’ll be this much fun to see my family here in Manila again. We’ve made lots of plans for the next few days and I’m so excited! I even got to eat Balot and Penoy again the other night at Chateau after so long! Not to mentioned the joy I felt when I saw the taho vendor this morning. Hahaha!
Aw, How I miss home.
As we all know, meeting the parents is a huge rite of passage, one that is never taken lightly, It’s nerve-wracking I know! But here are some suggestions you should remember when meeting your man’s parents for the first time.
Don’t overtry to impress. Sending a thank you note or bringing a small gift as a thank you for hosting you is always a nice gesture, but don’t go overboard — you don’t want to seem like you’re trying too hard.
Don’t be too affectionate with your boyfriend. A little PDA goes a long waaaay, especially in front of adults. Even if you’re usually a very touchy-feely girlfriend, tone it down; you don’t want to make them feel uncomfortable or come off as needy girlfriend. Uh-oh.
Be present. If you’re overly consumed with a pimple on your face or worrying that you’re not saying the right thing, you could in turn come off aloof. Make sure his parents know you’re interested in the conversation and in the moment. Laugh and loosen up a lilttle! Show them why their son’s so hunged up on you.
Be polite. Show them how your parents raised you. Say ‘Please’ & ‘Thank you.’ Let them know you have good manners and that your parents raised you with good breeding.
But most of all be yourself. There’s a reason your boyfriend wants to show you off to his parents so relax, take a deep breath, and let them get to know you.
I know it’s been awhile since I posted something decent, and for that, I apologise. You know when life get’s manic, and you feel like you only have time to eat and sleep and your creative juices have run dry and you have a serious lack of motivation? Yeah, that’s exactly what happened.
I know lots of people can still update their blogs even when they are lacking in blogging enthusiasm, but I just can’t do that. I like to sit down (or lie down..) and enjoy what I write about and feel a sense of satisfaction once I hit that “publish” button and although that sometimes means I don’t post in a while, I hope that sort of makes up for it. *batters eye lashes*
Well, as some of you know, I’ll be out of the country in exactly ten days from now and I just thought I would blog about what I usually take with me when I travel. Obviously, the basics of what to pack for a weekend getaway are obvious (clothes, beauty essentials, toiletries), butthere are few additional tried and true things that I always always stow with me.
There you go. Until the next post,
