Kababata

Nung maliit pa ako naaalala ko may closefriend ako, lagi ko syang kasama at kami lagi ang magkalaro. Nakatira kami sa iisang bubong noon pero parehong nangungupahan lang, sa ikalawang palapag sila habang kami naman ay nakaukupa sa unang palapag ng bahay doon sa probinsya ng Samar.  

Kalaunan nakapagpatayo kami ng sarili naming bahay at sila naman ay nagbabalak na ding lumipat ng ibang tirahan noon kung saan 30 minutong biyahe ang layo mula sa lugar namin. 

Sobra akong nalungkot nung magkahiwalay yung landas namin. Hindi ko naintindihan kung bakit nung mga panahon na yun kelangan magkakalayo gayong masaya naman lahat at nagkakasundo. Pero yun lang ang alam ko bilang musmos. Malay ko ba.

Gracie's Day Out

Image
I had a wonderful and relaxing day out. One way to stay away a bit from my stressful job was to spend a day at the spa. Everyone deserves to be pampered once in a while, ayt guys?

A relaxing facial cleanse and a shoulder massage in a 60-minute session at Thanh's Hud og Kropp's Pleie using Dermatologica facial products. (I can't wait for my next appointment - hand and foot care plus back massage, yey!)

At Hårgalleriet Frisør is where I got my new haircut plus hairwash and scalp massage, friendly and professional workers thumbs up! 
Thank you and keep up the great service guys!

Geek Porn

Unboxing muna tayo guys. Teka bakit nga ba unboxing ang tawag dito? Kung nanonood kayo ng mga video sa youtube about sa mga nabibiling hi-tech gadgets o kung anik-anik lang na consumer products tapos kukunan ng video habang binubuksan, yun unboxing na yun. Unpacking o opening meaning nun. Ang makabagong label naman nito ay tinatawag na "Geek Porn".

A Glimpse of LOFOTEN

Image
This year's highlight tour naming mag-asawa ay ang Lofoten. Sobrang espesyal bukod sa kami lang dalawa at walang kung sinong Pontius Pilate na kasama ay mas naenjoy namin sobra ang company ng isa't isa. Safe at masaya ako pagkami ni hubby ang magkasama sa biyahe at masayang nagliliwaliw sa ibang lugar, pero hindi ito basta-basta ibang lugar. Napaka-espesyal nito dahil nasilayan at naranasan ko ang mala-paraisong lugar ng aking si Adan, este ng aking si Pedro. 

Since wala nga akong camera - DSLR man o compact cam ay wala, tanging smartphone lamang na may 7 mpx na cam lang talaga ang aking sandata na pinagbabawal pa habang nasa himpapawid ka, nagkubli ako sa  malapad na likod ni Pedro, binuksan ang sabik na camera ng aking telepono at malayang itinutok sa napakagandang tanawin sa labas ng bintana. Click! Isang pindot lang ngunit ingat na ingat ako, mabuti nalang at walang tunog ang flash nito kaya safe ako. Solb!
