30 of 100 lemonades -package to the Philippines arrived ahead of time

lemonadesThis made my day that the package I sent to my family arrived ahead of schedule. Despite my mom’s weird pleads to not spend a lot on buying stuff and sending it to the Philippines, I know they do enjoy the months worth of stuff that we send. That’s the least I can do to be able to send my love to my family six thousand miles away.

It’s that giddy time of the year ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„โ›„โ›„







It’s that time of the year when Christmas trees are up, and ย the hands are all cracked and fucked because of this insane Northern California weather, away from the tropics where I hail. This is my second Christmas in California and I absolutely love it, despite being away from my loving family. Just a little post before ย our US Immigration interview tomorrow.



9 Months after….

Nope! I’m not pregnant!

This is the month that took for me to convince myself (actually, my hubby) ย that it’s alright to visit a hair salon.

Because compared to my beloved Pilipinas, a salon trip there is a fraction of how astronomical it costs here in the U.S.
That is the reason it took me almost 9 months and have my hair colored!
I try to live below our means and my husband just laughs at my antics because in all seriousness, it’s not a huge deal to him, ย but to me… a freakin 120 DOLLARS of Hair color + Haircut is HUGGGEEE Deal!

Case in point:
A full blown hair color, mani and pedicure would cost me about 1500 PESOS- thats around 32 US Dollars!

But then again seeing the results, and the work that my stylist did, I’m quite amazed. I really got my money’s worth
Anyway, the result was nothing short of amazing and I’m glad my hubby encouraged me because daymm I look like a huge mess prior to this!

Sunday sore workout


My ass and the rest of myย  lower part was aching like crazy from 1000 squats yesterday.
But I trudged on!

20 mins jog at the treadmill
15 mins rows

Im very very satisfied.

Todays sunday was fun. We didnt do laundry. Sometimes I drag myself to laundry even if its easy to do.

We just went to westlake, ate at banana island and look around at ross. Finally I got me a nice peeler. Yay.


But the highlight of my Ross trip was finding out the curlers ive been wanting was there. On sale!
