the art of my boredom

found a new hobby wherein i can allot my idle time and somehow enjoy from it…

it’s crocheting..

based on wikipedia, it is a process of creating fabric from yarn or thread. The word is derived from the Middle French word croc or croche, meaning hook. Crocheting, similar to knitting, consists of pulling loops of yarn through other loops.

it’s fun and my first project was my mom’s cellphone case (which i did for half a day, practice mode pa kasi)
i remembered this was taught during my high school days but i was not that interested and asked my mom to do it on my behalf ( my childhood days showed how naughty i was, with my tolerant mother, of course). i remembered a got 95 then for that particular project.

my mom used to have it as her hobby during my college days and that’s basically where i learned the basics and i tried to do it all over again and can proudly say, i was able to remember it…(smart yna! 🙂 )

crochet will soon post here some of my finished projects.

really excited coz my next project is my cousin’s top for a 2 piece swimsuit…hahaha! hope i can do it with justice.


show me the money?

another month has just finished and it’s bills pay-off time, which only reminds me that my “kaban ng bangko” (bankbook), ay maglalagas lagas na naman.

it’s nearly a month now since i have been off from work, meaning no income coming in…puro palabas coz of some minor expense but my bills is definitely reaching 16k a month.

it’s a good thing, i still have some part of my savings for the performance bonus given 2 months back, and the separation pay which is kakarampot.

i am really hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that i will be off to singapore soon and reap fruits of my labor.

if not, then i have to go to academe and teach nurses…at least this is somehow related now with being R.N.

“pay per post” somehow occured to me as a solution to added income but definitely, i am not a good writer but will still try anyway…. hey friendly bloggers, if you have other source of income which i can have at the moment, pls do buzz me or drop me a mail.

i am somehow thinking of teaching koreans for english which is booming in the market.

anyway, whatever it will be, i need to get a biz before my few bucks disappear.

a bum’s life

After careful assessment of my goals and mulling over with my hubby, i have finally decided to pursue our plans to search for greener pasture this year 2007. therefore, i finally decided to leave my 8-5work with French MNC in Makati wherein I spent my 9years of my work jouney.

Since we got no kiddo to nurture yet, (though we really would want to have one, anyway we’re only 1 year hitched)…but still had no luck to produce our offspring, we both decided to finally follow our heart for our longterm plans.

Its been 3 weeks of enjoying bums life. I and my hubby tendered our resignation effective April 10, 2007.

Its so happy to enjoy each day passing by with no work to worry about, no stress in meeting tender deadlines, no meeting and reports to attend to, no work related pressures and most of all, not being obliged to wake up early just to be on time for work.

Though sometimes, I miss working, I know I will soon have work in 2 weeks time, may it be in Singapore or here in the Philippines, I know I should take pleasure each and every bum day of my life for I won’t pass this very day all over again.

Holy Week getaway

We were deprived to go on holidays which is too far away from home since we need to wait for the notice of my work pass in Singapore.

Since my folks and other relatives had to push thru with their holiday destination in Pagudpod, I with my hubby, together with my sister and cousin decided to have our getaway in Tagaytay instead.

We went to Sonia’s Garden, had dinner in Leslie’s Tagaytay and hang out at Starbucks. We just enjoyed the cool breeze and fresh air….
