03.08.13: Hello Alexis

It is somewhat unusual that I post 2 entries in a day. But since productivity and jet lag doesn’t fall into one category in my life right now, I am stuck in my bed most of the time doing whatnot’s while waiting for the only person that can keep me sane in this time of misery. Just like the luggage’s that I have yet to unpack (yes people I am taking my sweet time) my desktop is still a clutter that I have yet to slowly sort. Truth be told, I am in no rush in blabbing about my last 2 months in the city that I fell in love in cause I feel like the words will slowly make the memories slip away. And as much as I want to wait until we see each other again,  we all know that life doesn’t slow down and time doesn’t stop.

Meet the Staff

11.19.12: Staff Meeting

I’ll be turning 22 in 5 days, and if you’d ask me the excitement that I should be feeling by this time is somewhere far that I can’t seem to reach. The matrix of how things are happening now seems to be too overwhelming for me. I have learned to appreciate time more and more each day. It seems like it is slipping away from me too quickly and all I can hope for is to not miss anything valuable in life while I am still young. I think life is too beautiful for me to miss..

 “It’s not going to be the same without you all. It’s the saddest thing that could ever happen this month. I just want you to know that it breaks my heart to be away from you and all I want to be is your baby girl forever. Just 4 more months and I’ll be the little oink oink in our home again. #MyLifeToday” — that was me last night, telling the whole world how sad I am for being away from my family.

Truth is, amidst of all the awesome things that I’ve been adding to my closet, shoe collection and whatever stuff that I have been getting, no amount of many can ever repair this loneliness. Having a fabulous life is every girl’s dream. But, being incomplete inside just puts me in a dark phase. I can find differentiate being sad and lonely in so many ways. I am happy…blessed. But this loneliness is making me crappy most of the time, especially this month.

But as what I’ve always believed in, we have to look at the beautiful side in any situation… Just like this beautiful place that we went to 2 Mondays ago.

 

I love how scenic Gaithersberg is..or at least where the mall is! 😛

 

Drove for almost an hour and a half to watch a Filipino movie — “A Secret Affair”

Can I just say that Anne Curtis and Andi were so pretty in that movie?? #FanGirlMode

Too bad this mall is far from our place. They have a lot of nice shops and restaurants #Bummer

Thai for lunch!! 🙂

Thai condiments

Tom Yum

One of my favorite Thai dishes!! 🙂 Not the best that I’ve had cause it was rather on the sweet side for me. It was still good despite the fact that I was too clumsy for words that I spilled half of my soup on my WHITE pants and turned it into orange..did I mention that I smelled like fish sauce until I got home? Spell HORRIBLE!

Shrimp in Spicy Green curry Sauce

YUMM!!

Minced Chicken with Flat Rice Noodles in Yellow Curry Sauce 

THE BOMB!! This was so delissssh!

New booties from ze B!

I know I can’t use this until next year,but……

New lippies of the week! 🙂

Chocolate x Bracelet straight form Germany!!! 🙂 From my co-worker and part time Mom at work..Ms Fahimeh!!! 🙂

October Random Heaps

Here we go again.. capping off another month! But this isn’t it yet.. I still have 2 more entries piled up waiting to be shared. This is just a proof of how busy I was for the past month…too much backlogs and so little time! Anywaysy, just like the usual, I have been spending my free time wisely in the most awesome possible way for me, by dining and shopping.

Today, I will be hoping for the best, for some good news, for me to have a path from the One above and give me the anwers that I have been looking for. This is it!!!!! 😛

One of my favorite cutesy restaurants to date! I specifically love them for their….

Yummy Mushroom Melt

I loved how cheesy this sandwich was!

For selling awesome pastries!

Their dream bar was really DREAMY! It was to awesome for words!

..and of course! My new found love! their low-fat oreo smoothie! Made with vanilla yogurt!!! YUM! ❤ ❤ ❤

10.11.12: Monday on a Thursday

I can’t remember the last time I have been this disappointed. I hate the feeling of not having enough time, the feeling of wasting time..or chances. Or just merely not live each day to the fullest. We only live once, YES. However, some circumstances make it difficult for us to do more important things. I have lived in a world where family is a priority; where a week is not complete without going to church;  where money is just a source of income and not something that would defy life; and life is celebrated everyday. This may come shallow or trivial, but it really is just frustrating when you know you’ve worked hard for something that will make someone..or people happy.  I know I have earned it..we earned it. We waited for almost a month and now,that weekend is nothing but a plan that never happened. I really wish and pray that I would have the chance to celebrate next year. Cause this year just screwed us..big time.

Richardson Farms after our Delaware shopping trip

A great place for awesome organic finds! 🙂

08.05.12: Monday Kick-Off

I hate the thought of wasting a day,especially during my days off. I like to spend my time wisely and make sure that it turns out as awesome as I hope it to be at the end of the day. One thing that helps me get to that point are the surprises that reminds me of how lucky I am to be where I am now is the person who I have now beside me every Monday. 🙂

My first time at PF Chang’s 😉

I wonder if the one Manila is as good as the one here in the States…

Chicken Lettuce Wrap / Mixed Greens with Ginger Dressing / Sesame Chicken / Shrimp Dumplings = YUMMM!

Honestly, I thought it was an upscale Chinese take out place here in America.

Best part of my 08.05.12!

Purple Nation

Our tickets!!! My first time to watch a football game and it was live! Lucky!

Still in awe on how beautiful the stadium is!!! 🙂

Cincinnati Bengals

Never thought I’d be this interested in football!

One quick fact: I used to watch college basketball since I was in high school. Though I know it doesn’tt seem apparent that I watch ball games. Haha

P.S. Volleyball is out of my league, I don’t know why. I am more interested in sports that defy triumph in a hard way. LOL I used to play soccer and softball in college, I may not be good at it but I must say it was a lot of fun!!

Just 8 seats away from the field! Yes,we were that close! 🙂

Marching band!

Cheerleaders! 🙂

All of them are so so so pretty!

Fireworks during the national anthem! 🙂 Beautiful!

Poe the mascot!

Michaek Phelps!! So handsome…and tall!! He is from Baltimore 🙂

Air-force aircrafts..gave me chills!

Cause I’m a fatso inside

Grape and egg custard snow cone..YUM! My date said the color looks weird

Was not able to take a photo of daiquiri. I don’t know what’s with me, I should’ve ordered coffee cause it was 50 degrees that night! But whatevs..cray cray moment!

Chili dog!

Stadium at night!

The ravens won and I am so happy! 🙂 44-13 baby!!! 🙂

P.S. They lost against Philadelphia yesterday though. boohoo 😐
