the happiest long weekend so far...

before i dive back to some serious work tonight, i just want to share this with you all. don't ask why; i just feel like it.

we've been having long weekends and 3-day holidays and such these past months, but i've never really enjoyed them to the fullest.

but it was just pleasurably strange that t
his time, and on my birthday month at that, i found myself enjoying an impromptu long weekend with people i love.



but it all began with work, as usual...

habang napanis ako kakahintay sa artistang iinterbyuhin ko para sa 10 most beautiful layout ng magasin sa hunyo (sabi alas tres so naroon ako 2.30p, tapos 4p pala darating, so bumalik ako 4.15 pero wala pa rin, yun pala naligaw sa lokasyon), nahulas ang byuti ng lola mo sa layo ng lokasyon ng photographer's studio na ito... kaya minadali kong lumayas once matapos ang hair en mok-ap niya at sumingit na ko ng 10minutes sa aming chikahan para sa lalamanin ng page niya sa layout. mabait naman kausap ang bata kaya okay na rin. sige minus 12 na lang instead of 40.


that was friday, the debut
of my THE SCRIBE VIBE writer's column sa manila times newpaper. yehey!!!

i met up with sarah sa greenbelt 4 to have dinner, which is also actually lunch, since i didn't have any (i hate eating before a coverage kasi). punyeta lang sa gutom ako nun...

kaya lafang kami ng steaks. yum.

da before and after photos...

smile pa rin kahit mega-tomjones na ang mga kipay. notice the really clean salad plate. but when the salad arrived, potah atakkkkkkkkk!!! yeah, like there was no tomorrow.






nalimutan ko nang kunan ang before photo. ayan, simot na siya ever. ganun kami kagutom.



notice the really simot plates ha. hehe happy pekpeks na, nakakain na eh.


hanef. sarap!

dito kami kumain.




tapos naglakad-lakad muna kami sa patuloy na nanganga
nak na greenbelt area.




after g4, may g5 na pala. may ginagawa p
a atang g6. my god, when will this end! ang pangit na ng area. pero kami hindi hehe. byuti pa rin.

tapos uwi na kami matapos ang isang vain search ng mabibilhan ng yosi sa area na to.

kinabukasan... chillout lang sa bahay until naisipan lang na lumangoy-langoy, so tinawag namin si jog at pinsang aj para lumangoy sa tirahan ko. road trip tapos ayun... sarado na. malas hehe. gabi na kasi nakarating. kaya tulog na lang at kinabukasan ulit, saka nag-swimming nung umaga.



bawi na lang. ayun, enjoy ang dala
wa. ari nila ang pool e. wala pang tao. buti na lang.



natatawa kami sa mga chever na to. hahaha!
gusto kong mag-volunteer para maging editor nito hahaha! ayuz.

tapos nito, wala lang... relax relax na lang ulit nung gabi.



eto, naglalaro ng computer as usual. yung kids, sa kabila. tapos tulog na ulit, hanggang sa maalimpungatan na lang kami. ngayon na pala. at mataas na ang araw, kahit parang hindi pa dapat.



e alas-nueve pa lang ito a! the sunlight reminds me of a mid-may baguio quality, where the sun is shining but it's not that harsh on the skin. and the air is somewhat cool. it's not humid today.



they left after a while and i continued on with work here, until the sunset beckoned me to write this all down. don't ask why.

and so, here we are.

i actually feel relaxed today. after all these things. yeah. it's strange to be this way but well, then again...i love being this way.

sarap lang ng buhay ngayon.

life's too short to focus on the negative, the abysmal, the moronic. i just want to be more zen about things and just focus on the now, the moment, the happiness it brings me, and the joy it rubs off on others around me, especially the people i love.



the universe blessed us with a rainbow this weekend. see?

yes, it's like that.

so love life.
