There had been a lot of ups and downs so far since I arrived in the Philippines and despite all the disappointments that I knew would happen, I can say that being able to breathe, wake up in the morning, and get home safely is something to be thankful about everyday.
Although I felt more secured when I was in Bahrain, being free in your own country is far better. Also, I get to meet friends every now and then. Although having different work schedules stops us from meeting each other, at least, we’re just in the same province and not a thousand miles away from each other.
During the past weeks, I tried my best to go on a trip to Vigan (Squidee’s craving for travel and I can feel it too) but had no chance because my day off is being occupied with doing laundry for half day. I am thinking of buying a new washing machine because my mom’s washing machine is more than 10 years old.
Here are some photos I took to fill my craving in taking photos of new places.
I walked around our house and took photos of whatever thing I see that satisfies my eyes.
Earlier today, I went to Urbiztondo to meet a good old friend to catch up.
We had coffee and I decided to try this stand just a few steps from Choka (my new all time favorite coffee shop). I had a to go Shrimp Pad Thai.
and.. a selfie before going home!
This was the to go Pad Thai. It is good but it wasn’t exceptional.
A few weeks back, I also met with a close friend from high school too who I last saw in 2012!
We met at Flotsam and exchanged news with the adulthood thing. Haha.
And here’s a great view to end this post.
Please excuse my messy hair! 🙂
