Hi. It’s been a while since I posted a blog about my personal life. I have already drafted my Cebu trip with the boyfriend two weeks ago and I still can’t find time to finally publish it. Hopefully before this month ends (that’s in 4 days)…
Anyways, my 24th birthday is in 24 days. So I guess you already have an idea why this blog’s entitled “Day 1 of 24”. I just want to document the last 23 days of my life as a 23-year-old young lady and day 24 as I welcome another I-hope-its-going-to-be-a-great year of my life :>
This day started like an ordinary day with extraordinary hopes and dreams. Though last night I was a bit depressed for no apparent reason. I guess I’m on a “quarter-life crisis”. Or am I just overthinking? Oh God, please help me. T_T
It’s been 3 years since Ondoy, and if you ask me to tell a story on my experience, I can still give it to you in full details… Well, I hope we already learned our lesson.
My day wasn’t really busy at work. My colleague, Luis, and I had lunch at Taste Asia, which is located in front of One E-Com Center, outside SM Hypermarket in the Mall of Asia. We ordered Grilled Liempo and Calamares and I think it’s just fine. After eating, we searched for Fruitas since we didn’t order any drinks and bumped into Juice Avenue.
I’ve been seeing one of its branches in Sta. Lucia East Grandmall but it was only today that I got a taste of it. The menu’s unique; each drink is named after popular roads/places in Manila. Luis ordered Calle Escolta (bestseller), a combination of mango, watermelon, melon and his favorite, banana. I was craving for Mango and Orange so I chose Traffic, a combination of apple, pineapple, orange and mango. It costs 59Php for a 16-oz cup which is worth it. After my first sip, I could say that this is the only “Traffic” I love! ♥ The cups are also environment-friendly; they’re using paper cups made of biodegradable materials. Very nice 🙂
We finished our task early so we were able to leave SM Head Office (near MOA, where I am currently deployed) 15 minutes before 6PM. I met my extraordinarily-sweet-today boyfriend at Marikina around 7:30PM after he delivered the compilation of raw and edited pictures to his client. Maybe he could sense that I wanted something sweet so he opted to have dinner at Red Ribbon. Unfortunately, our favorite Salisbury Steak was sold out and only 2 flavors of cake, not our type, were available so we shifted to Jollibee, for the love of Yum and Choco Sundae ❤
An hour with him was really bitin but I really appreciate his actions… how he walked a few meters to see me, how he said he missed me, how he wanted to take a photo of Jollibee’s pending number 21, how he said “Thank you” and “inspirasyon kita”, how he noticed my dimples, how he held my hand, how he accompanied me to the trike station, how he gave me a feeling we’re like highschoolers in love… On my way home, I realized, with his presence, I’m happy, no matter how sad I am :’)
I was about to close my Gmail window when I saw this subscription email from Marc and Angel Hack Life. I love to read the blogs that they post because it gives an inspiring feeling about dealing with life. The recently-written post by Marc was entitled “11 Promises You Must Make to Yourself”. If you have time, you may read the whole article here.ü
It’s just the first day. I hope I can be the happiest until the rest of the days.
