We’re actually in TV, not watching TV. My classmates thought of watching the late morning-turned-noontime show Showtime in the ABS-CBN studios, and yes though not really a fan of, I came.
I actually realized the effort put in TV shows like these. Not only by contestants, but by crew and staff also. The effort to keep people alive and happy, to also keep the viewers in the other end of the tube alive and happy. Bored at some points, but with friends, it was a pleasant experience all-in-all. It dawned to me, however, that I can’t stand to watch a straight show without looking at my tweets and SMS. So yeah, watching again would take quite some while now.
The bookstore never fails to soothe my senses and/or keep me occupied especially when waiting for company. While waiting for Nechane, my eyes were again at the shelves, and always tempted to break a rule and snap shots of titles I plan to buy. Worse, I finished skimming cover to cover Photo You Magazine. *Now which reminds me, dSLR… sigh* Aaaah, the smell of paper and ink. Indeed, random trips to the bookstore is a treat to your soul. Chos!
Friends and food is always a good idea! It’s the Holidays, and all we can think of are reunions, catching-up dinners, shopping-then-dinner-dates, Dinner-then-parties; whatever it is in between, it will always be food – brunch, dinner, merienda, tusok-tusok, name it. We Filipinos love to eat. And you just can’t hide it!
We were planning to grab Matcha Korichio from nearby Kozui, but would never want to be a glutton, wouldn’t we?
This Holidays, whether you’re working, studying for boards, having classes, or just bummed to the brim, take a break, indulge in a DIY therapy. Go out for once a while, catch up with friends, have fun. Be creative, there are tons of things to do, even in minimum expense. After all, it’s what the Holidays are for – Reconnecting.
Il fait bon vivre,
It’s good to be alive,
