things i love: september

Today, i write again. Charot! Nagpupumiling Patty Laurel lang. :P

Anyway, I terribly missed blogging. I've been gone for almost two months now. Blogging Hiatus? Writer's Block? Na-ah, let's just call it laziness. Haha! :P But really, aside from the fact that I didn't have a life for almost two months, it was just all laziness. Kill me now. I am such an irresponsible blogger.

Now let's get down to business. Obviously, this is a "things I love" post, September {and August?} edition. Basically to share what I've been doing for the last couple of months. Like anyone is interested, huh? Hold tight, fasten your seat beeelts.. this is going to beeee.. BORING! Hahaha! :))

First off, I've been eating chocolates! Yep, you read that right! My addiction is definitely back. And I don't think it has plans of leaving again anytime soon. So just in case you are aware of any cure, please do let me know. You wouldn't want me to die of Diabetes, would you? :P

Coeur de Suisse
swiss chocolate that melts in your mouth, not in your bag hahaha
it never melts, I swear! only that it gets softer, of course

Ritter Sport
in minis.. because I can't decide what to get
and my wallet can't afford to get 'em all in regular sizes

my new favorite ♥

Next, I've been reading books. Mitch Alboms' to be specific. One day, I only got bored waiting for a friend so I dropped by National Bookstore and got Tuesdays with Morrie. Next thing I know, I have his four books. I'm done with Tuesdays with Morrie and For One More Day. Currently reading Five People You'll Meet in Heaven. Kelan pa ko naging bookworm? Since I lost my social life. Hahaha!

Tuesdays with Morrie was borrowed by a friend
hello friend, can I have my book back na? :P

Third on the list is watching movies. I've been downloading movies and buying DVDs. I have my new favorite movie, Everybody's Fine starring Robert De Niro. It was so touching {or utterly depressing?}. I cried yet again. It was a family drama, what can I do? Ehem, excuses.

Everybody's Fine

Having said movies, mawawala ba si Ms. Aniston? Haha! I just finished The Switch last night. What's in queue? The Break-Up and Marley & Me. Someone help me download puhlease, andami pa niyang movies sabi ni pareng Wikipedia. :S

And a "Things I Love" list is never without shopping. I have few purchases here and there. It maybe my first love but it's definitely not the apple of my eye today. Maybe tomorrow na lang ulet? Haha! Ano daw?

Lastly, my promotion. Naglevel up ang lola mo from Senior to Analyst Programmer. In all honesty, I wasn't expecting it. Though performance wise I think I deserve it {ahem ahem, ubo ubo}, tenure wise {if ever there's such term} I just think it's early. Nevertheless, it happened. It's God's love, really. ♥

So there. That was my anti-social way of spending two months of my life. I'll be back to regular programming as soon as I get my life back. Hahaha! Last week was a good start. I have Ace Water Spa aka girl bonding story for you guys! That's up next. So stay tuned. Meanwhile, let's all have a goodnight sleep.

most pictures were taken using my super high end camera phone
bear with me. :D

Yeheeees, nice to hear from you again.

Chocolates: I am not fond though I crave for them sometimes.

Books: I am a bookworm too! I love your books. Can I borrow them? haha!

I was done watching "The Switch" and it's a good movie.

Congratulations for the promotion. I'm happy for you!

Hi, Apple. I missed your posts. Wow, that's a lot (for me since I'm a sucker for books and movies, and well, okay, chocolates.) And wow, congratulations sa promotion mo. I really need to know what I want next in my career. I'm thinking of changing careers. I'm happy for you! :)

Marley & Me is sad. :( One Day pa sis and Crazy Stupid Love -- two movies that I need to download and watch.

I missed you apple dear. I wish I also know a cure for chocolate addiction. I'm also chocoholic. haha.. I am a sucker for books. as for Mitch Albom's I have read Tuesday with Morris and Five People you meet in heaven. Those are really great stories no?

OMG! congrats on being promoted. I'm sure you deserve it.

I suddenly feel like I don't have a life after all. Book, movie and blogging are what make my world go round. hehe but then, I really enjoy it. I guess I am anti-social. haha..
