I am thankful for another week of blessings!
1. I scored new kicks! (For a bargain at that! ) Met my best friend for a while, and went on to have a fun dinner with my workmates.
2. Had a special Fellowship with dinner with my Caregroup sisters!
3. For the ongoing replacement of the road drainage outside our home!
4. 8 am call time for church this Wear Red Day Sunday! (Will not be late.)
5. Kei and I are celebrating being together for 2 years and a month today!
This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. -Psalm 118:24
This past weekend was glorious. Mainly because of the glorious food.
I was craving for Shakey’s mojos last Saturday after work, I headed straight to meet Kei for a hearty lunch. As expected, we ate a lot . We had a platter of mojos, a whole pizza, soda and carbonara. It was bliss.
Till the clouds turned to rain and it flooded the entire Metro Manila. That we had to wade through flood waters to bring me home. Icky stuff. By dinner, Mum and Dad brought home take-outs. It is saturday and it is takeout day at home. Dig in to a huge plate of fried rice, barbecue and noodles and a glass of soda.
Next morning, after church and baptismal class. Kei and I celebrated our 23rd month. (one month to go and we are already 2 years together!) We thought it would be nice to eat crabs at The Red Crab for lunch. A king crab it was, we barely even touched our rice. That crab maritess was good.
Come dinner time, I am off to meet my mother’s side cousins as it was my Grandma’s birthday. We went to IMC Kavino at Jupiter Makati for a Cantonese dinner. The food was so good and Chef Kavino is very friendly! Again I ate a lot till I cannot eat anymore. A weekend of eats. I feel guilty.
I talked to my cousins, they are really slim. (I am the odd/fatty one) and they actually recommended a diet for me.
As of the moment, I have just started reading the book they gave me. It is the Renegade Diet by Jason Ferruggia.
I am really curious to try this out.
In the middle of this dreary week, I got something a little unexpected.
This week I am buried in a long list of workloads, and it keeps growing everyday. Also feeling down the dumps due to all the negative stuff in the office, I really cant wait for the weekend to come… I feel awful and it is still the early days of the week.
But somebody thought I could use a little pick me upper.
Last night, Kei surprised me and got me a purple tulip (for our 20th month)! Plus a pink Starbucks cup and a banoffee pie. I did not expect him to show up at home, since he is a really busy with all the projects he is doing, and as of this writing I believe he still has a ton of projects to do. Comes with being a big-shot architect!
I thought last weekend we celebrated our 20th in advance but he surprised me this time.
Thank you Kei. I thank God for you everyday.
