Christmas is here!

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

About two weeks ago, I gave in and put up our Christmas tree:

christmas treeI had no plans of putting it up because we won’t be here for Christmas anyway. But the little girl would ask me everyday about it so I just had to give in. I guess she is already at that age when she easily appreciates all the decorations. The neighbors have put up their decorations and K would exclaim in awe, every night she sees the lights on. She was happy to see our tree up. The effort is definitely worth it!

Still Flooded

Thursday, November 24, 2011

My hometown is still flooded even after weeks since typhoon Pedring hit. Every time we go to our school, it is frustrating to see that the main street leading to our place is still flooded, even if it is not raining. The water is even already murky, a sign that it is not moving. Ack.


I heard a lot of dikes were destroyed during that typhoon and that would mean millions in budget to fix. I understand that it would take time to come up with such amount but can’t the local government at least offer some temporary solutions? Like invest in heavy-duty amt pumps to pump (obviously hehe) out the water?

I am guilty of being negligent of my blogs. Our house angel left at the end of September then I found out a week after that I am pregnant (yes! More on that later, maybe in my main blog). So you can just imagine how hard it is for me to balance everything. We have new angels in the house now and I am almost done with my first trimester so I am easing back to the old routine. I am still having a hard time staying up late at night to work. But I am hoping soon I can shake that off already. I need all the energy for the coming holidays.

Eyelash Frustration

Thursday, November 10, 2011

I have always wished my eyelashes are longer. I get frustrated with curlers and mascaras because I do not know how to use/apply them by myself. I also considered having extensions attached but haven’t got around to doing to so. Besides, extensions are just temporary which means I need to go to the salon every now and then to have it done, right? I read somewhere there are eyelash growth products already. Any reviews if they’re any good?

Doctors Needed

Friday, November 04, 2011

If there is one thing I regret, it is not studying for a more skilled profession back in college (Not that I am not happy getting degrees in Management and Psychology, huh). I just feel I could have done better if I chose to be a  lawyer, an engineer or a doctor. Especially the last one – I smile and wonder what could have happened to me if I am like some of my friends who are doctors already. I look at postings for Physician Jobs and see that the openings are many. The opportunities are wide, most especially for specialized fields like Obstetrics, Pediatrics and Dermatology.

Oh well, this is just me thinking aloud. I am happy where I am now :)
