Mid-May Notes (5/12)

Veni. Vidi. Amavi
We came. We saw. We loved. 

The horizon isn't seen from where I live so whenever I am able to witness a beautiful sunset or a sunrise, I always make sure that I take photos. This was taken somewhere in Pasay, Metro Manila.

The farthest I've been to since ECQ ver. 1.0 is Bulacan. The previous year until present has been the longest time that I've stayed home since 2016. I've had several overnight sessions and some day trips which are often in Antipolo. Just a breather to keep me sane. Ganon. HAHA!

Anyway, we drove through NLEX again the other month and province travel in the Philippines has never felt so far. πŸ˜… Can't imagine how it feels for people who need to travel but can't because my travel wasn't even considered essential but I felt so restrained.

 Watching the news becomes heart-wrenching sometimes, right?

This month marks my 1 1/2 years in CGM. 

Curlversary Update ❤️

Boredom struck the other night and I was thinking of getting bangs... HAHAHAHA! Good thing I didn't push through with it though. Thanks, December Mid-Month Notes for the reminder that I am not getting a haircut and a hair color. Kasi naman kung bored, bored lang. Walang nagi-isip ng kung ano-anong pwedeng gawin sa buhok. Sayang, CGM. HAHAHA!

Tawang tawa ko nito kasi may app para sa hairstyle trial. Loko loko. Huwag tayo masyadong supportive, uy. Sa panahon ngayon, di na pwede ang blind faith. I appreciate the love and support pero kailangan ng proper decision making. HAHAHAHA Kapag blind at sige lang ng sige, ipapahamak tayo niyan especially sa ibang aspeto ng buhay. HAHAHAHAHA πŸ’πŸ»‍♀️ Wow coming ng from me, noh? Especially the sige lang ng sige part parang hindi sa akin galing. HAHAHA

It is never the same every wash day with the method but I wouldn't trade this for another salon treatment. Balikan ko 'to kapag may na-tripan na naman akong gawin. 🀦🏻‍♀️ Anyway, we went to Quezon Memorial Circle. This is not so far from home but it felt like it was during that day. Brought me back to highschool days when I don't usually pass by this area that's why looking at the monument whenever we were on school trips made me giddy. Haaaay. Yawkonah. Kung ano ano na nararamdaman ko. Hahaha.

We were allowed to enter 'cause we told the guard that we were buying plants. We bought something naman, okay. Kasama na rin 'yung gala at konting merienda pero pang-halaman talaga. πŸ˜„πŸŒΏAnything for my domestication ba 'to, bhie? HAHAHA 

Bought pots for the plantita and plantito from the sellers in QMC. It's GCQ again today so it shouldn't be that strict anymore. Should you have planting needs with a little bit of fresh air then QMC is the best place to go. hehehe!

Speaking of trees.
Smells trigger memories. ❤️

These are my mains/ main scents: Cedarwood and Pine Needles. I have other woody scents such as Sandalwood, Juniper, Cajeput, and Cypress. 

I love the scents of mountains and forests. Since I am no longer able to hike nor able to go somewhere with lots of trees frequently, I settled with essential oils. Not only did this girl/tita became a plantita, she also became an oilbularyo. HAHA! But really, putting these two woody oils in the diffuser instantly brings me (back) to a cedar and pine wonderland. 

USA: MNL - TPE - LAX Flight with Eva Air Review

Uy, medyo na-sad ako bigla kasi nung sinulat ko pala 'to nakabili na kami ng tickets for Japan 2020 kaya expecting na ko. HAAHHAHAHA. KK. Whatever. Aarte pa talaga eh. 

Big pouches for the big dog. These are dog food from Paleopet. They have beef and chicken variants. This dog food business is also a quaranthing just like Denden's Baking Room. Kaya ayan, support small businesses.πŸ’– Chung Ke (our chihuahua puppy in the photo below) is a picky-eater but he seems to love this dog food a lot.

The diet nature intended.

Thanks, ninang Bianca for the nakakapoging collars kahit mukha akong daga (currently, as of nowπŸ˜‚). -Chung

Order beaded accessories for the furents and beaded collar for the furbabies from @bia.picks ❤️✨

Plantita na nga yern? HAHAHA! Anything for my domestication nga kasi, diba? Paka-supportive ng mga tao lalo sa mga bagay na kailangan ko mag commit eh. Ito na nga, diba? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Btw, by plantita I mean that I'm trying to grow microgreens. I've been seeing it in food plating before but I only learned about them when we started planting seeds. Rather than wait and then transplant them one by one, why not harvest and eat them before they even become baby plants? HAHA! Sipag yern?

One year late in the plantita bandwagon but here I am, present and trying! Gosh, pati nga cactus napapatay ko pa dati kaya hindi ko alam kung tamang desisyon ba 'to. πŸ˜‚ I don't even know if I'll be able to grow them properly but I hope to update about microgreens here someday. Haaay! Kung ano ano na lang ginagawa. Maiba naman, noh?! Puro mid-month notes at previous travels na lang laman nito eh. πŸ˜‚

As soon as the liquor ban was lifted in Quezon City, we went out to buy some soju. HAHAHA! Lol. We were out to restock on kimchi and other stuff in our pantry when I noticed that they were already selling soju so I bought quite a few bottles. Ever since this pandemic started, soju has been a pantry staple. 

Not the alcohol-dependent kind of level but we're still doing e-numan and inuman sessions until now so I keep a bottle... or five. πŸ˜‚

The drive thru I never thought I needed. HAHAHA! Always passing through this Dunkin Donuts drive thru on our drive back home whenever we're in Visayas Avenue. 

I've always loved choco butternut but last month, I was given cheese trickles so I've got myself another favorite flavor. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— I was told that it's been available for years but I only tasted it recently. Thanks to someone.

How I love the velvety cheese they used to coat the chocolate donut. Surprisingly a good sweet and salty treat. 

I was tagged this post in Instagram and I've been LSS since then. But we don't get weeds from California ah. Sa Las Vegas, Nevada tayo kuha ng good shit para legal. HAHAHAH πŸ’πŸ»‍♀️

Kasi namannn, ang lyrics! HAHAHAHAHA. Ano ba 'yan, JB. πŸ˜‚ Looking forward to our next airplane ride whenever and wherever that may be. 

Golden Gate Bridge

A lot of us may have lost our loved ones in the past year. Considering the current situation, most of us weren't able to properly grieve nor give them their well-deserved wake. In addition to that, the risk of getting infected with the COVID-virus is greater than ever. Life has been more unpredictable but again, let's hang on to that hope that we'll get through this eventually. Sana, sana. πŸ™

Please be safe.
I wish you enough. 

Everything, in time. πŸ’–
