Today was an exceptionally wonderful day. It felt like Christmas and my birthday, rolled into one. I thank God for days like these…
Happy Incident #1:
I was actually very anxious when I woke up. Today, my co teachers and I were doing our final weigh in for our Biggest Loser competition. I knew I had a good chance of winning but so did my co teacher, C. It was a very close fight, which is why I stayed up most of the night thinking of what I could do to assure my victory (even if there was really nothing left to do). But all my hard work and discipline paid off. I was the Biggest Loser and beat C by a pound and a half. Very close call. Good fight, C. Cheers to our now sexy bodies!
Happy Incident #2:
Good news today about work. That’s all I can say. Plus, we are officially on summer vacation. I am so looking forward to sleeping in to the point of boredom, working out whenever I want to and baking all day long. Never mind that the rains have come a bit too early. I’m just glad that it’s summer!
Happy Incident #3:
Tastespotting. I am hooked on this site and have been submitting posts from my blog. So I was even more elated when Mister M sent me a text message saying that my recent post was approved. Sometimes, these little things mean a lot.
Happy Incident #4:
Mom left for the US a few weeks ago to visit the siblings, nephews and nieces. Although we admittedly have our differences, I was starting to miss my Mommy very much so I was quite excited to welcome her home. When she arrived, we exchanged stories over a hot pot of sinigang na bangus and adobong okra. I told her later on, “I’m so glad you’re home.”
Happy Incident #5:
Can you say “Pasalubong?” The word pasalubong is a Filipino term that refers to the gifts that one brings home for their loved ones when coming back from another place. As a child, I would always look forward to opening the boxes and luggage whenever my parents would arrive from another country. It has sort of become a tradition where the maleta or luggage is like the Christmas tree and we all sit around it waiting for our gifts. This time, I knew I had a lot of baking loot care of my sister, G. You have no idea how excited I was when I saw the goodies surfacing one by one. I was literally shrieking in delight. So thank you, thank you, thank you, Mommy and G.
I can’t wait to bake tomorrow!
