This cracked me up

Basti’s with my in-laws this weekend for All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day. I called him earlier to check on him and here was how our conversation went.

Me: Hi Sweetheart! How are you?

Basti: I’m okay. Mommy, kelan ko po makukuha yung gift mo sa ‘kin? (When am I going to get my gift from you?)

(Note: The gift was a promise I made to him when he topped his class and got the Best in Religion award for the 1st quarter grading.)

Me: I already have it with me but it’s still a secret. Bigay ko sa ‘yo pag nagkita tayo next week. (I’ll give it to you when we see each other next week.)

Basti: Ok. I also have a gift for you but it’s a secret.

Me: Thanks, Sweetheart! So it’s already your birthday, san mo iti-treat si Mommy? (Where are you going to treat Mommy?)

Basti: Kahit saan Mommy! (Wherever you want Mommy!)

Me: Really? So who’s gonna pay?

Basti: Sino pa? Eh di ikaw! (Who else? Of course, you!)

Me and my big mouth! Why did I need to ask? LOL!


The Drinks

Chili’s and our mighty drinks!

A girl friend and I talked, giggled and promised a lot of things to each other over a sumptuous dinner and a round of margaritas – margarita on the rocks (with one shot too many of Jose Cuervo) and Tropical Sunrise.

This should be a fortnightly activity for us 🙂 We need it!

Friday Fill-Ins

And…here we go!

1. It was a dark and stormy night, nothing unusual happened.

2. He was in a rush so I offered to take the books myself.

3. Rushing out, I slipped and fell down the stairs.

4. As usual, I’m my lame myself and then…I think I heard a howl!

5. Shhhh… that must be an owl laughing at me.

6. But it was just the librarian who wants togive me something good to eat!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to the long weekend, tomorrow my plans include organizing some stuff on my computer and Sunday, I want to sleep in if I can!


This year, Events Anonymous decided to hold a Hollywood-themed Halloween party for our department. As always, the people were all game in dressing up especially for the Dead Carpet event. Let the photos speak for themselves.

Happy Halloween everyone! And ’til the next Halloween event next year 🙂

Career Hour

The company decided to do a Career Hour. Unfortunately, I really couldn’t explain what it means except that we were asked to come in our best corporate attire. This was what our team came up with.





The last photo is of my colleagues who just wanted to goof around the cam 🙂 They’re really fun to be with.

Wednesday Lunch

For lack of better alternatives near our place of work, we decided to drop by Serendra and have lunch at Conti’s. We weren’t lucky enough to get a table so we tried out Cafe Mary Grace.

Food was good but since we were in a hurry, we couldn’t order more than what we could eat. Their pastries are great! Their pasta is okay but it can be better.

Next time, we’ll try their other food items for comparison. But it’s definitely a promising place 🙂

Tuesdays @ Fridays

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking since Sunday and since I can’t bear the crap I have been feeling since that day, I decided to ask some girl friends out for dinner and a round of margaritas. It’s been a while since I last had an alcoholic drink and so far, I welcomed this one despite feeling a little kick after having that margarita on the rocks.





‘Til the next round of margaritas 🙂
