A Sure Hint

This is a very sure hint to Cheep’s gift for me. It surely is a pair of shoes.

Last December 24, we spent the simplest and the loneliest Christmas ever. Why? Everything about Christmas in our little town is changed. I blame the church people for it. It was not Christmas-like last December 24 even with the presence of the foodies on our table. I was just glad I received a few gifts from my online sponsors and from my family before and after the 24th. The earliest I received is a pair of wedge sandals from Cheep. I already had an idea it was a pair of shoes when I first saw the gift. I wasn’t mistaken. The picture of the sandals will be posted in my other site, the Whims and Craze.

One Of The Gifts I Received

This is one of the gifts I received on Christmas. It was a Christmas/Birthday gift for me from Cheep. Can you guess what it is?

At nine in the evening on December 24 is when we had the gifts opened. Cheem didn’t arrive at that time yet thinking the opening of the gifts will be at 12 midnight, which is what we are used too. So only half of the gifts were opened then. Since the church changed everything about Christmas in our town, the Christmas celebration started at 9:00 p.m. after the mass. A few blast of fireworks were heard that lasted only an hour. At 12 midnight, when arrived, the world already fell into silence. We didn’t feel the true joy of Christmas.

Anyway, I opened the gift from Cheep and guess what’s inside? It was a pair of wedge sandals. I like it!

I Am Excited, So I Paint My Nails Red

It is already December 1. Hmn…Christmas has just officially started, eh? There are three things about December that excite me. First, my birthday falls on the month; three days before Christmas. I would say I am lucky for being born on December, much more on the closer date to Christmas for I can celebrate my birthday along with it, as I have been. Second, the Christmas of course, and/or the Christmas eve, the most joyful time of year. Just by the sound of the word “Christmas” brings a lot of joyfulness in the heart. Third, the alumni homecoming. I was informed the alumni homecoming this year is different from the previous years or from the usual. It was said there’ll be a 3-day alumni homecoming celebration. I am excited as early as now!

Although I do not feel much of the spirit of Christmas yet here in our place, particularly in this block where I live, I am still excited and looking forward to those upcoming events. And even though financially struggling, it shouldn’t hinder everyone to feel the joy of the nearing day of the Savior’s birthday. Since I am excited, I had my nails painted today having Christmas in mind.

Mama called her “suking manicurista” or  frequented manicurist + pedicurist  to fix her toenail ingrown today.  She only calls her when she has ingrown problem. Although I was not happy about the real reason why the suki was here, I was happy that mother had my nails done too and paid for it. She had my nails done before hers for she likes it when the person is fixing her nails in no rush.  It seldom happens as my mother is naturally a cheapskate, so I nodded to the invitation with big grin. It’s been a while since my nails received that kind of pampering.

Here’s the nails. The suki didn’t do a neat job but I didn’t mind the clutter. I had my nails done after several months and it was all that matters.  I had on two different shades of reds on both finger and toenails.

Fuchsia Twinkle on right and Guns N Roses on the left.  Same goes with the toenails.  Oh, please excuse the ugly feet.

These two shades both come with glitters in the bottle. I find the colors pretty and very Christmasy; perfect to wear on the first day of December, to meet the joy it will bring.  This is enough proof how excited I am about December despite all the trials we are facing.

At a Friend’s Birthday

with Shyne, new friend

Just sharing a photo of me taken on October during a friend’s birthday, few weeks after I moved back to my hometown. Since it was just a simple home party with only few close friends and family invited, I just went in a denim shorts and a thrifted Mossimo long-sleeve top – my usual home outfit. The party was intended for dinner so it was a free dinner for me. Lol!

This picture of me with a new friend (birthday girl’s friend) was taken by one of the birthday celebrant’s friends after the dinner and during the beer drinking session. I didn’t like the beer but I had no choice but drink. I didn’t want to be a joy-killer that night as it was the first bonding of me and the birthday girl in our hometown.

It was  a night worth to forget the diet. There were a lot of foods served. I was sad I forgot to take my camera that night after seeing the yummy foods served on the table. I should have taken some photos of those. I wasn’t able to use my phone too for it was almost battery-dead and can no longer use the camera. I was just glad I had this photo of me taken that night. It was the first party I attended since I got back home and I had a blast with the foods and drinks and new hometown friends.

Bartholin’s Cyst, My Yearly Pain

After a week of pain(i was glad it was just a week) due to the swelling of my bartholin’s cyst, I have accepted that it is already a part of my life. Well, it has been for the last six years and it will be for the years to come. I do not like it but I have no choice. It is said that in 100 women, there is one who unfortunately suffers the yearly pain due to the cyst that grows inside a woman’s bartholin’s gland.  And I am one of those unfortunates who get to suffer it every year.

The bartholin’s glands (we have two) are located at the entrance, one on each side, of a woman’s vagina. These  glands are the ones that secrete fluids or lubricate  a woman’s intimate part. When its duct is blocked, it is when the cyst form. The cause of the blockage of that glands is unknown and there is no known treatment that can totally eliminate the cyst. Surgical operation can only prolong the occurrence of the cyst about a year or two but eventually, the cyst grows back again. Sitz bath helps ease the pain and quickens the ripening of the cyst. The cyst is not life-threatening nor transmittable but it is very painful that I sometimes think I could die. Walking and sitting is very difficult. Read more »

Home Isn’t Bad Afterall

chiez

Manukan isn’t bad afterall. My few days here in my home place have been so good. I like the fact that I am with my mother who is always there whenever I need her care and support. Regardless of the people’s criticisms due to her current affair, which the family had already accepted, she is living a day with smiles. I can tell she’s happy, even happier than when she was with our father. I like how she cares less of those talks against her for as she said, those people don’t know a thing.

I like the fact that I am now so close to the beach that is just located at the back of our home. I can simply rush in there and indulge myself with the seawater whenever I want to, which what I have been doing lately. Well, I actually indulged myself with seawater this afternoon with Chizka. Ah, I missed the sea so badly! Read more »

Let’s Move and Let’s Love

chie25

It is time to make a good move: love myself!

I have a major goal this week and the coming weeks (just in time for my moving back to our home) and that is to start loving myself by living a happy and healthy life. I should start by freeing myself from all the sadness, bitterness and worries…and of course freeing myself from the bad habits too. I might have to do the latter slowly though as I’m certain I can’t do it right away.

I have been so selfish to myself in the last two years by giving in to depression, not putting myself on priority, ruining my own health, depriving myself from living happy and healthy. My failing marriage, it was the biggest reason for me to be depressed but apart from that, there were other things too that had put me down like family and self-pity issues.
