Settle for the kind of love that simultaneously makes you feel accepted for who you are but also makes you want to be a better person.
Find someone who encourages you and supports you and loves you for you. But also, find someone whom you admire so much and respect so much and like so much that you instinctively just want to be a better person, every day, because you feel safe and supported enough to try for it, even if you fail…
My first and last visit to Manila for the year. No more leaves lah! 😭
After our trip to Boracay, I went to Stef’s office so that we’ll be together when we go to her condo at Rockwell. It was nice seeing her and Deane happily together. I was so touched that she took a day off to accompany me in picking a dress for Gid’s friend’s wedding. 🙂
At night, I met Team Magallanes at Greenbelt. It was really nice seeing them! For the record, from our group there’s only 4 people still working at Accenture (Albert, Jaja See, Jaja D and Zen) *slow clap* haha I salute you guys. While waiting for Jaja and Albert (they were still at the office at 7 pm :|), we went to Ayala Triangle to look for a dessert place. We ended up at Amici, since the two haven’t taken their dinner yet and there’s a gelato stall inside the said restaurant. We had a fun night since we did a lot of reminiscing, old jokes were still funny. I really hope our Korea trip next year will push through!
Day 2: I did a general checkup, both medical and dental since it’s cheaper to do tests in the Philippines than in Singapore. I cried when they took a blood sample from me (I really hate injections ><). Fortunately the results were normal, I was kinda afraid before that I might have diabetes.
At night, Papa accompanied me to Nobu Hotel. Gid’s family was staying there for the whole week. When I arrived there, Ate Aimee suggested that we try the Casino. The guards asked for my age, when I told them I’m 25 they even asked for an ID to confirm it. Haha, so much hassle for looking young, kidding! 😛 It was my third time to enter a casino, first was at Resorts World Manila; second was at City of Dreams Macau (both times I didn’t play and guards asked for my I.D. xD) For this time Gid and I played Baccarat (player banker game). We won several thousands from that game, afterwards I tried the slot machine with his sister.
Day 3: Tan-Cruz wedding.
Day 4: Last day is Family Day.
Trip going back to SG’s uneventful except for some immigration officers in the Philippine questioning my age again. They even joked that they’ll interview me. 😅
I hope I’ll still be able to go back to Manila this year. ;_; *prays for more holidays*
