Taking My Travel Adventures to the Next Level

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 8 Comments A+ a-

2017 looks promising to me.

I am putting my travels to a whole new different level. And since I am not built to be a solo traveler, of course, Jan has to tag along with me too. Haha.

A Guilty Pleasure

Sunday, February 12, 2017 5 Comments A+ a-

I don't remember the last time I binge-watched over a tv series because I have never really watched anything since Burn Notice ended.

Call me a loser. I've never seen The Walking Dead, I couldn't even get past episode 1 of the Game of Thrones, I don't know what's strange about Stranger Things, and not even a single thought of jumping into the Korean drama bandwagon crossed my mind - which is probably a good thing.

But I ended up giving Riverdale a try. Seriously? I probably deserve a good punch in the face for missing on the good shows and giving this a second look, not to mention, time to blog about this. I'm not even into highschool-centric dramas (Mean Girls is an exception). But since I was a big Archie comics fan back then, I decided to watch the pilot episode after the teasers gave me a hunch that they got the characters wrong. And I was right.

I think I got emotionally traumatized for it did not stay faithful to the comics. Turned obviously straight characters into gays and lesbians (I'm not against LGBT). And filled what's supposed to be fun and innocent with sexuality and murder. So in the event that they turn Jughead into a vegan, then I'm done.

Honestly, I don't really like it. Teen soap and awfully cliched? I've seen likes of this before and it didn't go very well, at least for me. But I don't know how Riverdale seems to be so inviting I will be lying if I say I am not hooked. Perhaps because it's dark and edgy, and because somebody ended up dead that I would love to see where the show goes.

Well, I could just pretend it has nothing to do with the comic books that I devoured as a kid and just watch it as just another mystery tv series not because I have nothing better to do but because it's actually pretty good. And oh, some of the characters are hot af. That's good enough for me. ;)

Rabies Shots and a Jaywalking Ticket

Thursday, February 9, 2017 8 Comments A+ a-

I think my cat, Appa, thinks I am super adorable that he decided to bite me. Well, if I had it my way, that's how I would show my fondness to Jan too. Except, there will be no bleeding.

Appa is actually sweet and affectionate. He follows me wherever I am. He sits on my lap whenever I work. Snuggles beside me when I'm on my bed. And right now, alcsfnhacflhan ;j;dh;jhb[dtu[ he's helping me write this post. Awww... thank you so much, buddy! His sweetness makes me forget that cats are naturally shady characters. Perhaps, he was actually trying to murder me because his breakfast was not served on time. I did not see him the whole day, so I can only assume he's plotting his next move after a failed murder attempt.

But if my cat did not kill me, the rabies shots will. Google simply told me that one vial costs more than a thousand pesos and I need at least 3 shots for it. 4 if he's proven rabid (which I think he's not. I believe he's just a murderous, raving lunatic). The cost did give me a heart attack but not close to killing me though. Try harder, Appa.

Anyway, I rushed to the Animal Bite Center and had some tetanus and rabies shots. And surprisingly, I did not have to pay for the shots. Yaaaas! I just have to shell out Php 82.50 for the injection fee for all sessions. Then I went off my merry way knowing I just got off the hook from dying a horrific death.

Afterwards, I decided to have a burger for breakfast and walked mindlessly towards Jollibee when a CTTM Officer called my attention. And the next thing I know, I am scheduled to attend a mandatory pedestrian orientation for violating the city's Anti-Jaywalking Ordinance. I think I could've died of embarrassment while being apprehended in public. But I was just laughing inside my head asking what the fudge have I gotten myself into this time.

Well, shit happens. And it's a fact in life that we can never get away from. But it's not permanent. So that's okay. My mornings usually follow the same boring routine. A bite from a suspected murderous cat and a jaywalking ticket just added a little flavor to it. But I will certainly not have any of that ever again because it doesn't taste good. But hey, I had Jollibee's Chiken Joy for lunch with Jan at home... so it's not a bad day after all. :)

Feb-ibig All Year Round

Wednesday, February 1, 2017 3 Comments A+ a-

I spent two days racking my brains out trying to fix a bug that I have coded. I already gave up on it, I wasn't willing to pull an all-nighter, and I was so ready to deliver a half-assed job.

Then Jan came to the rescue and it only took him less than an hour to fix the issue. While I was so amazed at his awesomeness, honestly, I felt so bobo at that time. Haha. Pucha bai, dalawang araw kong hinahanapan ng solution yun. Sa kanya, wala pang isang oras na solve nya na. Okay, for the record, I graduated with a degree in Nursing and was not schooled to develop websites. So I'll make that an excuse for that moment of kabobohan. Haha.  

But then, It can't be denied that he's really smart (intelligence is really sexy and it pays to have a smart boyfriend). But more than feeling so noob for not being able to fix a VERY SIMPLE bug, I felt so loved. He stayed up late at night with me even though it was already past his sleep time and mind you, he still has to work the next day. Well, it's not the first time he has gone the extra mile for me. It's not the first time he has done so much for me. It's not the first time he has pulled me right up whenever I start giving up. And I can't be thankful enough for having him in my life.

So now I am thinking... since his birthday is coming next month, I might as well buy this guy a helmet. Baka mauntog pa ulo nito at matauhan sa pagkahumaling nya sa akin. Haha.
Yes, a recycled image. Haha
Ang ganda ng pasok ng February ko. Feb-ibig is really in the air. But then, with him around? Feb-ibig goes all year round. :)

I wish everyone a month year full of love!
