Premium Ground Coffee

My boss had a package that was given to him by his friend from Canada.  When he opened the package today, the content inside were a lot of ground coffees, herbal teas and t-shirt.  He gave me one pack of ground coffee.  He wanted to give me another pack but I was shy and chose one pack only.  It’s an imported coffee from Colombia that I would try to drink tomorrow. Thanks to my boss who shared his blessings to me.

Anticipated Mass

I just heard an anticipated mass alone because my friend Lydia was attending an Arnis Tournament (martial arts) of her daughter.  I was bored during the homily of the priest as I don’t understand what he was trying to say.  Thankfully I was able to hear mass alone as I don’t want to come on sunday for the mass.  I went home straight as I already bought what I needed before going to mass.

High School Reunion In Vikings

Last August 16th Saturday was our High School Reunion that was held in Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant in SM Lanang Premier.  Our classmate Glory Fe from Canada was the one who paid for our luxury treat.  All of my classmates that I invited were present as they don’t want to missed the luxury treat and some of them were their first time to dine in Vikings.  My classmates who attended were Glory Fe the sponsor, Mary Rose, Armidelle, Berlie, Jocelyn, Vergencita, Jeanette, Meraflor, Cleo, Ruby, Ruby’s sister, Rito, Jerome, Jamel, Glory Fe’s two Cousins, and me.  We were 17 persons who dine in Vikings with free three persons because the cousin of Glo was celebrating her birthday and we were more than 12 persons so we availed of free 2 persons.  Some of my classmates arrived at 5:30 pm and they already started eating.  I arrived at 6 pm and we finished at the time the restaurant closed.  We ate like a king because all the international foods were served from japanese, korean, filipino, mexican, european and american foods.  Different flavors of drinks were served, draft beers were unlimited.  They also served red and white wine but you have to pay as its not included in the buffet.  We were so happy and full as we ate the most expensive food and desserts that they served.  She brought us presents but to few special classmates only.  Thanks to my classmate Glory Fe for a luxury treat and presents.  You are so generous to us, I hope you will be rewarded a thousand folds.

These Sofa Cushions

We all have our favorite chairs and sofas we love to sit in and they become part of our life. We have had our living room furniture for a number of years, but recently, we noticed that the cushions were wearing so much that we had to do something. We were looking around stores to see what was available but we saw nothing which we liked better than our good old trusted furniture. Then a friend suggested we replace the cushions on our chairs and sofas. We found these sofa cushions and had cushions supplied which perfectly matched our existing furniture. We were so happy with the renewed support and comfort that we now have, plus we have our beloved seats still.

Raspberry Jam

Me and Petie had morning coffee at executive lounge in Holiday Inn & Suites Hotel in Manila when I saw 3 different kinds of jams that was served on our table.  The content was just 30 ml good for one person when you eat bread.  We didn’t eat bread, we just had coffee as we just finished our breakfast at 4th floor.  The three jams were orange marmalade, strawberry and raspberry.  I asked Petie if I could bring the raspberry jam home.  He said no but I insisted as I have not eaten raspberry my whole life.  But his decision was firmed so I gave up.  To my surprised, when we finished our coffee he took the raspberry jam on the other table for me.  I was so happy as I had eaten a raspberry jam even if it was not fresh fruit at least I tasted raspberry for the first time.  The taste was the same as strawberry fruit.  Yummy

Maroon T-shirt

I was surprised when Petie opened his present to me a maroon t-shirt with a print of “The London City England” with its famous landmarks design.  I immediately fit the t-shirt and I was happy it perfectly fits on me.  He really knows my size and on the following day, I wore the shirt already as I like it so much.  I am thankful and proud of wearing his shirt with a print of his beautiful place that I am praying, hopeful and looking forward to visit next year.

Amplifier’s Effects

My brother loves heavy metal music and loves to go to live gigs, particularly as his best friend is a guitarist in a band. As I wanted to celebrate my visa application to UK being declined, he invited me to a gig to see his friend play. It was the first time I had been to a live heavy metal concert and I loved the sound, the volume and the effects. I said this to my brother’s friend after the gig, and he was so pleased as the band had just bought some instruments at He said I could come to his gigs any time I want.

High School Reunion

I had been to a reunion party yesterday that was held at Business Class Bar & Restaurant in Lanang. Audrey and Mary Rose were my classmates abroad who paid for our party. I arrived first because I headed straight from work. I ordered light beer and tinkering my ipad while waiting for them. We drank beers before we ordered our dinner. We chatted a lot and took so many pictures while refreshing ourselves. My classmates who came were Meraflor, Armidelle, Jocelyn, Berlie, Jeanette, Jerome, Rito, Chris, Audrey, Mary Rose and me. The bar place has a nice ambience with free wifi, fully air-conditioned and has live band. We had so much fun jamming with the band. My classmates requested a happy birthday song dedicated to our classmate Rito. He was shocked because it was not his birthday actually. My classmate was just having fun with him. All in all, we had so much fun seeing each other again, sharing my abroad classmates their blessings with us. Many thanks to both of you, may God bless you more and will give you good health always working abroad.

Rimless Eyeglass

I couldn’t bear seeing my eyes near sight like reading my mobile text messages and ipad reading,  It’s hard reading small letters so I thought I need reading glass.  Though I have one but the glass lens is too small and painful on my nose.  I decided to have my eyes checked by the ophthalmologist the other week as I couldn’t read text messages anymore.  When he checked my eyes, I could see far sight letters but near sight I couldn’t read small letters.  He concluded that my grade was 175 and progressive.  He said after 5 years the grade of my eyes would reach to 250 then it will stop there and no medicine treatment just eyeglass.  I ordered rimless eyeglass as its light weight and it looks subtle when wearing it.  I am thankful I have reading eyeglass as I could see small letters now.

Floral Curtain Holder

Last week, I was in the mall to look for plastic container but I don’t like the rectangle shape. Until I went to curtain area and saw floral curtain holder.  I bought yellow gold color for our yellow gold curtain at home.  They have a lot of colors available but I chose the color that would match our curtain.  When I got home, I immediately use the floral curtain holder that I bought as it perfectly match the curtain that we are using now in our living room area.
