this past week

ige's dad is home from a two-year stay in canada. 

balikbayan goodies!  i got a digital watch (yay--no more guessing how many minutes i've been running, or attempting to), a camel-colored sweater (which really makes me wish for a cooler climate), a pair of gold sandals, a brown tote bag, and a heavenly piece of caramel chocolate.  :)

the title of this post is also the title of a radio dept. song, and hey hey hey, they'll be here for a gig on april 20, and we are definitely going! 

we bought tickets at gweilos bar in makati (he had san mig light; i had cerveza negra) last monday before heading off to

mimi and wes's show over at blanc gallery.  it was awesome.  they're quite a pair, and their works fuse well together too.

yesterday we got our office uniforms (do i hear an "eeew" from the audience?), and i had to return mine because they didn't fit.  either i got thinner (hallelujah!) or i was wearing ridiculously thick clothes when i had my measurements taken last year, because my uniform was really ill-fittingly loose.  well i do wish it's the former.

speaking of the quest to have my college body back (good luck with that, chum), i've been getting questions about where i do pilates.

i have my yogilates, jazz, AND sexy hiphop (yep there's sexy in it) classes over at Peak Performance in quezon city, along roces avenue.  it's on my way home which makes it very convenient, and classes are cheaper too, compared to other dance studios (in gyms, which i do not like) in the area.  i'm growing to love the studio, its staff, my dancemates, and of course the instructors, especially the owner and head instructor Jill Ngo.  she's so warm and friendly, and doesn't look a day older than twenty (she's actually in her thirties!).

i got a taste of zumba last night after hiphop--my dancemate and i (yes just two of us last night--another plus for the studio is the small class size) were curious about it, and as our instructor was a certified zumba instructor, he gave us a sampling.

(as of today) i like hiphop better.  heh. 

we'll be holding our office team building activity (a.k.a. outing) in baler this may.  i made reservations yesterday and i hope it pushes through.  hello beach, hello waves.  i'm getting myself a long-sleeve surf top this time; tan lines on my skin take forever to fade.

i am still without a digital camera.  it's okay.  i always have a film camera with me anyway--this week i have the lc-a.  here's to film photography!

i'm reading globalization-related stuff again to keep my mind active for that still-nonexistent thesis.  oh my poor academic health.  i'm currently reading pico iyer's the global soul, where filipinos have been mentioned at least ten times already (i'm still at page 150 of 300), in a not-so-new light either as domestic helpers or night entertainment workers.  it's getting boring.  when i get bored enough i just pick up another book, heheh.  the book does reaffirm that filipinas are pretty though.  :P

will i add this to the bunch of books i started but never finished?

anyway, that's about it for now.  high fives all around!
