The Dragon Charm

 JANUARY 23,2012

Hi Friends! :)

This morning at the office yes unluckily we had work, it was like a party! Victoria Plaza was soo noisy, there were Dragon dances, drum beats, ang pao giving etc plus the Dragon went inside the office and I was really laughing in excitement ^.^ Not to mention the owner of this mall is Chinese and they were doing it annually on Chinese New Year. Anyhow back to my work, when reading the newspaper of Philippine Daily Inquirer, I smiled and frowned on what I've read. It was more about KUNG HEI FAT CHOI articles , the wedding of the year Shalani and Raul and about Iloilo's Dinagyang Festival profit. ang dami palang event kahapon sa Pinas! lol. I leap thru the pages and saw something interesting :). Since I'm a dragon baby I want to know what's in store for me this year and this is what I've read :

Dragons fall under these years : 1916,1928,1940,1952, 1964,1976, 1988,2000

"This year coincides with your horoscope. However, your resistance is weak. Do not be in a hurry in pursuing your projects. Always be humble and don't be greedy and everything will be smooth. Have some happy occasions like birthday parties to share luck with others. "

obviously, those words I highlighted are words inspiring somehow hehe.
another article made me reacted and agreed to some words mention about a Dragon's characteristics

1. Dragons are described to be intelligent and charismatic. They are also lively and full of vitality ^.^ - Cheerfulness is the name of the game!  :)
2. Dragons are determined and have lots of self-confidence. - FAIL! i self-pity always
3. They follow their own judgment and can take control of and deal effectively with problems. - hmm...correct!
4. In love relationships, dragons are self-centered but filial, and tend to marry late -
i laughed at this part ^.^ I like to marry late.
5. While Dragons are admired, they have few close friends. That's because they're dictatorial and don't listen to the advice of others. - True! I have few close friends but I disagree that I'm a dictator, and don't listen to others lolz.
6. Dragons are also arrogant, blunt and lack patience and tolerance. - I'm too much opposite to what has mention :P
7. Dragons are eccentric and egotistical, and seldom agree with elders. - haha NO! I respect the elders :) but I can sense being unusual or odd sometimes lolz
8. Dragons get along well with rats, roosters and monkeys, but not with oxes and dogs. - based on experienced, I don't get along with oxes hehe
9. Ideal careers for Dragons include being a businessman, actor, athlete and singer. - LOL ang hirap naman! how about being a NURSE? hehe

I believe in balance but not really in feng sui, lucky charms etc. I believe GOD has planned for each of us we must just trust in Him always and wait for the right time that God prepare for us :) It was written in the Bible in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I'm a Hater and Complainer

 hello world! :)

for so long now, nothing happens especial in my life ^.^
I really wanna go out but knowing nothing where to go, I'd stayed up stuck at home :(
 I hope March would come the soonest! I'm really so excited :) I can't waaaittt!!
These past days and weeks, I was in a world of HATE and COMPLAINTS.

First of all, I hated and complained on the weather here in Davao.
It always rains! and to the fact that I hate RAINY season, 
and the reason that I don't want myself and my things get WET!
I will accept windy, sunny and cold weather but please, just don't rain @.@
Flashbacks of not so good experiences will occur during this kind of weather (emote!)
So, I would not recommend it to my own fragile-emotera self! :)
 I was so thankful that sunny weather starting to shine on our city ^.^

Second, I'm losing interests in my work.
There would really come a time in your life that you will get tired of something.
and this happens to me now. I'm tired of working :( .
Ive felt that my working environment isn't healthy anymore though I'm earning salary.
Not because of I'm Juana tamad but, I'm losing the passion for this work-
which was at the highest level during my first months here.
You know the feeling at morning where you want to sleep for so long
but need to get up early because of work :(
It started when Ive passed my resignation letter, and from that on all I wanted is to let the days go so fast
and hoping for February 29 to come and PRESTO! I'm free ^.^

Third, a bad sleep at night.
It was one week that I haven't had a good sleep at night :(
 It was sooo devastating huhu and ended up to have a sleepy head at work
I really don't understand such night episodes, at 3am more or less I woke up
and can't fall back to sleep again. I could close my eyes for 30 minutes, 
that would be the longest time, and after that I can see my self staring at my dark room until 6am :(
Thank God! after that one week of unrestful nights I came back to my good sleep  :)
how did it happened?? simple. I just eat a little at night ^.^
Coz that one week of sleepless nights I was in a full tummy when sleeping.
So when I decided to eat less, OLA! i LOVE my nights again :)

Fourth, I gain a lota weight :(
Starting last month December until now I was really craving to eat ^.^
I mostly eat cakes, donuts, chocolates ohh I love sweet foods! 
For cold season, I usually crave eating anything especially what's mention above :) 
What's available inside the fridge, di ko pinalalampas haha
Even if I just finished eating something the gluttony of me is calling hihi
ohh I'm so sinful! sorry Lord!
so when I was looking at my body on the mirror I just realized I was so FAT!
MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS! what happened?
oh noooo... my chubby face, becomes more chubbier LOLZ
well, basically I hate my body.. ang laki2x na ng bilbil ko, e dati wala to (echos!)
Now, I'm on the moment of EATING LESS haha- eat less only in evening hehe

oh well... I hope It will all soon pass hehe :)

Living Life to the Fullest! Love Lots!

The first week ^.^

Happy New Year!
 my first week on January ^.^
 I started the year going to church, just so perfect that January 01,2012
falls on Sunday, and no work -a HOLIDAY! :)
So, instead of doing the unnecessary things first- I should start my year hearing God's words :)
and then, it didn't fail me :)
God on your first list is an incredible way to start on your year right!
of course, lets just not remember God in "seasonal" matter but instead everyday!
Let us put God at First :)

anyhow, I received a rose that day ^.^ a PINK ROSE
given by our Pastora- to those members who seldom went to church haha
Honestly, my shadow just sometimes seen in church due to my work, and we only have
a sunday service,and Sunday isn't the best day off for me :(
anyhow, I was just thankful that our church never forgets me :)

The following days was a weight gain days haha why??
because I was really craving to eat hehe
First things first, I was surprised when my brother and his wife
went to my office and told me that we will have a lunch date. YEY!
I was happy cause surely I'll be the one who will choose what food establishment were gonna dine in.
Plus! my money that will be spend for lunch will be save haha :)
without further adieu , I chose AHFAT hehe
my sister in law reacted cause it was expensive but my kuya just sed "tara!" .

the store's facade :) Ahfat is a Chinese restaurant just inside the Victoria Plaza Mall Compound
the Fried Rice
the Deep Fried Shrimp
Ahfat's Calamares

Afhat's Kinilaw :)
Believe it or not, it's my first time to taste and eat KINILAW! boo...
I'm really not a fan of raw foods, but when I tasted their kinilaw it was superb!
I was thinking it was a PORK meat ahaha :)

my Mango Shake

my brother and his wife ^.^

and yours truly, who's very hungry already hihi ^.^
well, my choice was perfect! haha and all of us was soooo full after!
and the bill?? well, my kuya paid for it! haha :P

Lunch break again, I was a bit lazy going out of the mall to have a lunch at my favorite carenderia.
So I decided to stroll around the mall and find out "BASTI'S BREW".
I was working for more than two years on this mall but I haven't gone to Basti's hehe
I don't have any idea what does the inside looks like but outside it was "sosyal"
and you can see lots of "professionals" having a coffee break hmmm...
I know the place was a bit cozy and I was kinda hesitant to come inside ahahaha
but, my tummy was growling already so i have no choice? hehe

Ive ordered Chicken Adobo

and for my dessert, Banana Sundae Split :)

The bulb lights inside the bird cages! haha
I find it very bizarre but sooo creative ! :)

the following day , I went to the mall's foodcourt and was looking for a good prospect store hehe
It was Joann's birthday and she promised to treat me lunch but she isn't texting!
nakakahiya naman if I will remind her of her dues haha :P
I was craving for pizza that time so when I saw SHAKEYS PIZZA well, I didn't have second thoughts anymore hehe. I directly get their menu. :P
I wasn't really hungry that time cause the morning earlier I ate SUPER BREAKFAST at home hehe
I don't know what came up to my mind that I ordered the SUPER PLATTER meal of Shakeys hehe
maybe it was just the gluttony of me inside that push to order that meal. Hays patawarin po hehe

The appetizer, Chicken Cream Soup

and the SUPER PLATTER meal haha
It was a difficult meal cause I was having a hard time finishing it :(
sorry sa term Lord, any meal is a blessing pala ^.^
When I come back to the office, Joann was there waiting! hehe
she brought me pasta carbonara from Greenwich ^.^ gee...
I decided to eat it at breaktime but due to the busy day I forgot about it and brought it home instead :)

another exciting, interesting event haha
Last year, I was really trying to figure out what will I look like having a CURLY HAIR hehe
well, when I bought something for making hair curly just for a day,
I immediately tried it haha :P With the help of my sister, the result was AMAZIINNGG hihi

wahahahahaha I know, it wasn't really the professional curly hair style
but, It was just really a perfect curl for me and I was satisfied by the result :)
wala laaannngggggg.... just sharing haha
