I Want to Start A Pet Blog

I have been thinking a lot about creating a pet blog lately. Chizka and her puppies inspired me to create one. I want to start a blog that only talks about pets, mainly dogs and that focuses the life of my baby Chiz and her cute pups.  It would be nice to have a page in the web that only talks about them and my future pets. I have this feeling that  there’ll be more pet dogs to come in my life. I planned on getting a new Labrador as Sarah’s replacement. If you still remember, Sarah was my first dog. It was in her that I truly realized how loyal and lovable dogs are if you’ll only take good care of them. It was in her that started loving dogs . Also, I planned on getting a pure Pom too and a Shih Tzu. It will be very expensive but I hope to find a good deal. I just love dogs so much!

Two Days With Insomnia

I slept all day today. It was good for I needed those long hours of sleep. My eyes and body claimed those two days of sleeplessness and stress. I was up for two days, yes that was 48 hours, due to insomnia. Being up for 48 hours is my worst so far when having insomnia. If you are like me who suffers such sleep condition, you truly can relate how hard it is to catch even a nap when insomnia attack. You cannot sleep the whole night so when morning comes, you’ll feel weak and tired and your eyes feel heavy or sleepy. The bad thing though, even how hard you’ll try to close your eyes to catch some sleep, your mind gets too active making the much-needed sleep so elusive.

So during those days, I just stayed in front the computers to either blog or watch dramas online and then when tired with the computer, I alternately played Xbox.  I was like blogging since 6 in the morning until midnight then watch some episodes of Korean dramas from midnight until two or in the morning. That was all sitting and typing and looking at the screen I did. I only stood up to get myself a glass of coffee or to go to the bathroom to pee.

Then at around three early in the morning when tired when all the computer/online work, I sit on the couch and faced the challenges in Baldur’s Gate in my Xbox game Dark Alliance II. When totally exhausted, I only lied down to rest my eyes and body…though the mind wasn’t. So these are all the things I did in two of insomnia.

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.

I am sharing this to 366 Blog Photo Challenge hosted this month by Sis Jess of  K and His Tools.

Spotted At The Project Tour

269215_321629517917462_1231004282_n

This is a long overdue post as it happened last June. It was the last rock music event I attended…Oh how I miss the nerve-rocking, head-banging songs!

I was spotted at the Project Tour Digging The Deep music event with my youngest sister Cheep in Nigan’s Resto and Grill last June 2, 2012. I was invited by the owner of Bewear Apparels, a local shop of high quality printed tees in Dipolog City who was the organizer and major sponsor of the said event. I, being one of the sponsors too, am glad that the event was a success. I attended the event wearing a tee from Think Positive Wear while Cheep  went with me wearing a tee from Dig Deep, which both were sold in Bewear Apparels. We chose to wear these tees from the two particular brands because they were two of the major sponsors that night. Credits to those took these pictures, which I think the August Skyline group. I didn’t know these photos with me in it were taken. Read more »

Gangnam Style by Psy

gangnam style

Op….Op…Oppa Gangnam Style!

Since the first time I heard the song Gangnam Styly by Psy, I couldn’t get over it. Oh my, everyone here in the apartment except papa is crazy about the song and the dance moves.  I kept playing the music every day that “Oppa Gangnam Style” has become an expression and Gangnam Style dance moves become a regular form of exercise.

Korean Drama Mood: The Moon that Embraces the Sun

Cheep and I were so engrossed with the Korean drama we were watching. It is a historical drama series The Moon That Moon that Embraces the Sun led by Han Ga In (the Witch Yo hee) and Kim Soo-hyun (Dream High). Its title is taken off the name of the hairpin “The Moon that Emraraces the Sun” that the crown prince had personally made for his crown princess. The said drama is a period drama that took place during the Joeson Era. It took us more than a week to finish watching the drama and it is worth our time for we fell in love with the characters, we laughed, we cried, we hated the bad people and most of all, we learned a lesson.

It is a nice drama with a nice plot and with a nice ending too. Although it has some dragging scenes. Still, we both recommend it. Actually it is my second time watching it. Its first episode did succeed in invoking us both to watch further and so we did and finished it completely this afternoon after a week of watching. We both love it! You must watch it too.

On Overtime

chie

This is how I am when on overtime….in blogging.

Hair is all tide up, wearing a big shirt (hubby’s) and eyeglasses – stressed and rugged-looking but still managed to smile for the camera. This is how I usually look around this time and when just at home blogging.  I like my hair all tied up before I sit in front my computer because that way I can feel my head is clear, which makes me think clearly on what to post.  I like wearing big shirts too while I am blogging especially around 3 in the morning because it feels comfortable and keeps me warm when cold dawn steals the warmth of the night. Eyeglasses, well, it is a blogging essential for me now. Facing the computer makes my eyes sore and head ache now without my glasses on. So without my eyeglasses, I can not work efficiently.

In case you want to see the little area in my apartment that I call my little office, visit here.
