christmas is so near

it's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas! i love it. Christmas is my most favorite season of all, and i know that this year is going to be extra special. i'm so excited already. it's the busiest season of all but it's not going to be the same if it was not busy. we went to bonifacio high street last friday and i saw a Christmas tree i want. i told my mom to buy it but she said we still have 2 trees. she is putting up one this year, as we didn't last year. i think i can still convince her to buy the tree i want. i took a picture of it but my phone camera does not give justice to how beautiful the tree was.

i want the orange one!

repair 101

we have carpenters in the house, again.

one of the tenants was asked to vacate one unit and since they have been staying there for years already, the unit needs major repair. i have not seen the unit yet but my dad said that he will have to have the bathroom renovated and have new kitchen sinks installed.

other than repairing the unit, they will also do repainting of the house. just the outside though, no repainting inside. i hope it does not rain for the next few weeks.

i heart junk

the junk i have been eating for the past few days...

fritolays is just addicting

chips ahoy chewy is yummy
friday's quesadilla is perfect with iced tea
3 Musketeers is the perfect chocolate bar for me

but here is what i miss the most but had to stop myself from buying on my last trip to SandR since it is too expensive for an icecream.

the only ice cream that keeps you skinny

thank God i have not been gaining weight with all the junk i have been eating.

13 hours

it took me 13 hours to fix my wireless connection. it was super frustrating as i felt i tried everything already and it's still not working. close to my 13th hour of trying things, i said to myself that this was the last time i was uninstalling and reinstalling the program. i didn't do anything different other than chanting the whole time "please Lord make it work" and boy oh boy it finally did. Thank you Lord!

wireless gone bonkers

i don't know what happened and i am clueless as to what to do. i had no problems with the wireless connection up until last night when we had a power interruption. after the power was restored i can't seem to use my wireless connection. i know it's not the router and it's not the modem either. i feel i just have to do something but i don't know what it is i have to do. im not at all techie and my cousin who usually does techie stuff for me is at work. thank God i can still connect to the internet using my desktop but i miss using my asus. i have to finish the mortgage quotes for my dad. of all the days this is to happen. i hope i can restore my wireless connection today.

-went to divisoria with my mom, ate cecil and ate manette. we are going back next week! teehee.
-went to SandR with my mom, my sister and dra lara. SandR is the philippines version of costco. they were having a weekend sale. super dami ng tao, my mom said konti na daw because she was there on the first day of the sale. she went to a different branch though. i was able to stop myself from buying fritolays, yehey. i bought my favorite chocolate though--3 musketeers. dra lara and i had fun tasting the wines and had a shot of tequilla rose too, teehee.
-went home for dinner after SandR.
-went to starbucks with dra lara and my sister after dinner. we were thinking of buying bottled frapuccino at SandR since it was on sale but we just decided to go to starbucks after dinner, so we did.

-went to promenade with my sister to buy something.
-went to trinoma after greenhills.
-went home around 5pm to catch the 2nd half of the laSalle-ateneo game. as everyone know, ateneo won. can't wait for thursday's game.

can't wait for next weekend. this week, im back to finishing a few things and making sure i cross out things from my to-do list. i can't believe it's october already next week.

vacation packages

i spend an hour looking for vacation packages last night since my mom has been thinking of going on a vacation next week. it is going to be a long weekend for her and friends from work and they have been thinking of going out of town. i told her that all the packages i saw required plane ride and that's something that they don't want. i was telling her about the Brazil vacation packages i saw online and she said maybe they can do that after she retires. when? i don't know. she always tries to retire every year but every year she tries to do that they tell her too that she might want to reconsider. i told her to make sure she retires atleast by next year because if she doesn't, the package might not be available anymore.

it took her mom more than 30 hours of labor and we were all excited for her arrival. even before her due date, my cousin was already telling us that she is to give birth on sept 11. my cousin's husband is pakistani (but sooo filipino, i tell you!) so we were joking that sept 11 was the perfect birthday for bindi (gets nyo ba ang joke?). her mom called us sept 9 to tell us that cousin T was already on her way to give birth. we waited and waited and waited but Bindi took her sweet time and proved to us that she was an obedient child.

on sept 11, at 11:30 in the morning, we all welcomed bindi to the family. our new princess! everybody is so happy with the new addition to the family.

it was so nice to meet you and see you, baby bindi. i pray you grow up to be a good girl like your tita's ,teehee. (ain't she cute? i love the chubby cheeks!)

i love september

i love september only because it means the start of new season's of my favorite US TV shows. gossip girl has started 2 weeks ago, amazing race starts end of the month same with survivors, grey's anatomy, house md, the practice, and the list goes on. with all this shows starting a new season, i want a HDTV! teehee. im super looking forward as how grey's and house md starts a new season. can't wait! can't wait!

medical city

i was at medical city last night with the parents and my sister to visit cousin T who gave birth to our family's new princess, baby bindi (i will be posting more about bindi later). medical city is a really nice hospital, the only things i don't like about it is it is quite confusing. i don't get it on why the nursery viewing room is at the lower ground floor while the delivery room and NICU is at the 5th floor. elevators are really slow and parking is super confusing too. other than that, i like the hospital. the rooms are really nice. i envy the nursing students i saw who had their own room. i remember when i was doing my clinical rotations, we would often just stay in a vacant room. that's how it is with government hospitals. their was even one time we had to vacate the room because they were admitting a patient who had Adult Asthma. im just glad those days are now over. it was also funny that one of the nurses at the hospital obviously didn't have anything to do last night as she was just playing diner dash. lucky her!
“This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.”

still no bindi

my cousin still has not given birth even after being at the labor room for more than 24 hours now. we are all excited to see baby bindi but seems like she is very shy and has opted to not go out yet. hopefully, today we get to finally see her. i hope cousin T was able to rest well last night as she will need it. i hope she does not have to go through CS.
