That Elusive Sign

At times, when you are so torn between two equally weighty things, you just pass on to the universe the burden, and wait longingly for any indication of an answer. A sign. An elusive one, most times.

It's a predicament I try so hard to shove to the back of my mind, awaiting the time for me to muster all the courage in me to be able to deal with it. Later, perhaps. When I'm braver.

For now, though, I let life go on as usual - doing the same things every day and welcoming the littlest of shifts, which now seem hard to come by. Of course, the reward I get, coupled with hubby's sunny personality, makes everyday lighter and brighter. And I could not be more thankful.

When in Eden...

Wow, it has been a while, hasn't it? I'm sorry for being MIA for, wait, months? Whoa! Now that that sunk in, I feel really bad for being an irresponsible blogger. The last months have been a chaos - deadlines, meetings, deadlines, travels, deadlines! Good thing there has not been any drastic change in the way Argey and I do things yet, now that we're married and all that, or else I would have fled. Like, really fled - run away like a madwoman from all the chaos. 

So, anyway, as I said, part of the chaos was the travelling. And when travelling, I always opt for loose-fitting bottoms, soft jeans, leggings, or skirts. You can say I've learned the hard way and now go away with tight jeans or fitted denim shorts when I travel.  

This was what I wore when we head for Davao City last Sunday. I wore this sweater, actually, to fight the freezing temperatures in airports and planes. We had to take the plane from Dumaguete to Cebu and the connecting flight to Davao, so I made sure I was cold-proof. It was later, in the skies between Dumaguete and Cebu, that I realize how stupid of me to have forgotten that we were supposed to visit Eden Nature Park in Davao that day. And sure enough, I was sweating like crazy when we had the tour. Good thing I was sane enough to wear this breezy skorts, or I would have stripped myself naked in Eden. Okay, I never would have... but we don't know what too much sweat can cause our brains.. teehee!

This was actually my sixth visit in Eden, but the place still amazes me. They have a new feature this year - the SkyCycle, which I dare not try, but the 'kids' went wild about. The food, as usual, is great; and the flowers in Rainbow Pass are in full bloom this time of the year. What a treat!

Hey Twenty Four

Janjie and I have been awol on the blog lately. Sorry you guys but we've been pretty busy with work, and catching up (with work) that we could now probably be crowned the busiest of them all. We'll make it up to you soonest, ayt? *wink!

So, while Janjie is enjoying her Mac experience in Davao, with some of the Pylon staff, I'm here celebrating my birthday. Yep she knows she has a lot of making up to do. Evil laugh! She loves me to death that she'll treat me out this weekend with all the sumptuous food and relaxing spa and more girl time. Love you too Janj! Haha!

Anyhoo, I had to squeeze this in in my super busy work schedule because it's-my-birthday-today-and-I-really-have-to. This is not so artsy really. Considering the new work schedule and biological clock, I only had to grab whatever I could find and poof! a floral skirt, pink tube top, belt and a pair of ankle strapped flats. And to complete the birthday themed post, luckily I found baby Zayn's balloons in her room. Thanks baby, I owe one!

To everyone who greeted me and made this day totally awesome, THANK YOU! To my friends, you know who you guys are, where's my birthday cake? Haha! And to my family who never fails to make me laugh the hardest, you made my day. Awww! Cheezy stops here na.. thanks guys!
