Siomai Atlast! And My Hello Kitty Cravings

Nov. 22nd, 2009 | 10:59 pm
m0oD: blank blank

Yessir! I've been craving for siomai for dayyyyssss already and it wasn't until I really begged my parents to passby Danube that I was able to actually buy one. One thing that's so frustrating here in Riyadh is when a woman (especially for the single dependent ladies) wants to go out and buy something, they CAN'T just go out without a reliable driver (or in my case my dad) to drive them around. So it took me a week of craving for siomai before I was able to actually eat one! Gaaahhh!

So here you are ladies and gentlemen... SIOMAI ATLAST!

On another note, while waiting for my tasty siomai to be cooked, I dropped by the Sanrio 
shop to buy a Hello Kitty water bottle, but I ended up buying a whole set of Hello Kitty stuff for work...

What's inside the bag shopping bag? TADA! Yeah yeah I love Hello Kitty! I am a self-confessed Hello Kitty addict... LOL...

And my cute Hello Kitty Lanyard... wieee! :3

Dilemma... Confused

Have you been torn in a situation wherein you can't decide whether you should stay loyal or fight in fulfilling your dreams?

Well, I am... now...

Apparently, I've longed for a longer shift in my current company that will pay me more, and will make me a notch higher than my position... in other words, promotion.

Just recently, a door has been opened for me for this opportunity... but I'M TORN!

You see, my current boss is the reason why I am working in this wonderful company in a very good community. But stepping up would mean I will have to leave our department (elementary) and shift to another. I'm afraid of what she'll think or feel.

If you were in my position, what will you do? It's a choice between taking a plunge at the opportunity or staying loyal. Ugh! I'm sooo confused...

Anyway, enough of that drama... here's what I want for today... I've been craving for this babies for DAYYYYS!

Kuya George just came back from his vacation in the Philippines, and he brought back a "pasalubong" from Bacolod... TADA!!!

A beautiful T-SHIRT that has Bacolod City and MassKara written on it!!! :D

I was sooo happy to have received this, it's a beautiful addition to my collection. 

Just a lil' trivia, I collect t-shirts that came from different parts of the Philippines that has the name of the place printed in front. 

So far, I have one from Aklan, Ilo-Ilo, Camiguin and now Bacolod... all gifts from my friends from their trips. Unfortunately, I haven't been to any of those places yet hehehe  (hopefully, SOON). 

Oh, and I got a little trinket from Boracay too... See here:

Performing Again :)

I so much miss my band in the Philippines! And I miss performing above all! 

But last night at Nica's 1st birthday, I had a chance to perform with my newly formed band! 

The band members are mostly the "Katutubos" of KUBO (my friends from our photography group here) and we named our band KUBETA band hehehe...

We kinda performed on the spot because we didn't have anymore time to practise... nevertheless, we had fun trippin'... 

The Kids Are Back!

Finally! We have all the kids back in campus after having them out of the school premises for three weeks due to the AH1N1 scare. The Saudi Ministry of Education had all schools closed for quarantine. But we still had to go to work even though the kids aren't around... 

Anyway, it was awfully busy in the principal's office this morning because there was a flood of new students that came in today. So I was running around showing the new kids to their classrooms and touring them around the place. 

In the library, there was a whole bunch of books that needed to be shelved but thanks to Ms. Siti and Ms. Aisha we were able to finish shelving in a giffy. Things were pretty nice and slow after that.

The school was alive once again as the hallways echoed students' voices and footsteps. I then realized how much I missed having the kids around. Although it was heavenly to be able to work quietly, the school was different without the kids. So yeah I enjoyed work today.

Oh, and our assistant principal had her office open for some lil' snacks, which I greatly enjoyed... yum! 

Looking for Cosplayers Interested to Form Rozen Maiden Cosplay Group

</a>I love dolls and the Rozen Maiden anime, and thought that when I go back home to the Philippines I wanna do a Rozen Maiden costrip, either for a shoot or a cosplay event. Well, since I'm coming back home for a vacation next month, I want to make that dream into reality...

If you know somebody... anybody... interested to costrip with me for a photoshoot and for the upcoming Cosplay Fusion, please PM me... it could even be you!


ROZEN MAIDEN - Rozen Maiden (ローゼンメイデン, Rōzen Meiden?) is a manga by the group Peach-Pit (the creators of DearS), with an anime series of the same name.[1] The story centers around Sakurada Jun, a young hikikomori boy that finds himself indebted to a living doll by the name of Shinku, a doll of the Rozen Maiden series, who was created by a mysterious but extremely talented dollmaker. The series examines the living habits and personality of each doll that is living with Jun and his sister Nori, as well as the sibling rivalry that they commence to name one doll as "Alice" in order to meet the maker who created them. Jun's sometimes comedic, sometimes dramatic experiences with Shinku--as well as the other six dolls of the Rozen Maiden series--slowly bring him out of his depression and back into the world that he had abandoned.

Here's a pic of the ROZEN MAIDEN cast:

God Spoke To Me...

I actually believe He did for the second time.

The first time was last month when I had the most frightening experience that made me feel so unsure and scared. My heart was enveloped with fear that I didn't know what to do. Then something inside me told me to pray... to talk to God... that He would listen to me even if it's been over a month since I last prayed. So I took the Holy Qur'an, spoke to God solemnly and then randomly opened the Qur'an. Lo and behold... this is where it took me:

Surah 21. Al-Anbiya
83. And (remember) Ayyub (Job), when he cried to his Lord: "Verily, distress has seized me, and You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy."
84. So, We answered his call, and We removed the distress that was on him and we restored his family to him (that he had lost) and the like thereof along with them as a mercy from Ourselves and a Reminder for all those who worship Us (God).

I cried. He actually heard my prayer and gave this reassurance... that He will save me, that everything's going to be alright. He spoke to me through His Holy Words written in the Holy Book.

Guess what, after one day, the fear was lifted and the cause of the scary incident was resolved miraculously.

But lately, I have been feeling so lonely that it's so disturbing. My heart feels like it's in the darkness (NOTE: It's been three weeks since the last incident and I haven't been praying again). Somehow, I thought the loneliness was just boredom... but it grew and it grew until it seems like my whole being is being enveloped with loneliness.

I kept myself busy and bought myself stuff that would kept me preoccupied, but I still felt the loneliness and anxiety. I bought more things thinking they will give me satisfaction, but it failed again.

I surrounded myself with activities, bought stuff, chatted with people... but I still felt the same that I had a hard time sleeping every night.

Today, I had to go to bed early because spring break is over and I'm back to work... but the loneliness is absolutely killing me. Then something inside my head told me to open my laptop and go online... and guess what... God spoke to me again...

I stumbled upon this blog entry that my friend Jeanine posted:
Loneliness: Toothache of the Soul

What really caught me here are these lines:

"In a sense, loneliness is like a toothache: It's a warning signal that something is wrong. And like a toothache, if left unattended, it usually gets worse. Your first response to loneliness may be to self-medicate - to try home remedies to make it go away."

"Busyness is a common treatment~

You may think that if you fill your life with so many activities that you don't have time to think about your loneliness, you'll be cured. But busyness misses the message. It's like trying to heal a toothache by taking your mind off it. Busyness is only a distraction, not a cure.

Buying is another favorite therapy~

Maybe if you purchase something new, if you "reward" yourself, you'll feel better. And surprisingly, you do feel better - but only for a short while. Buying things to fix your loneliness is like an anesthetic. Sooner or later the numbing effect wears off. Then the pain comes back as strong as ever. Buying can also compound your problems with a mountain of credit card debt."

I can relate! So I read on... and this is where it struck me the most:

"Loneliness is God's way, first, of drawing us closer to him, then helping us to reach out to other people."

So now I realized that He's reminding me once again that I am drifting apart from Him and that I should go back before anything bad happens again.

And with this I am seeking for God's mercy. Forgive me Lord God.

Bakit kapag may nakakasama, nakikilala, nakakausap at nakakachat akong lalake ang LAGING sinasabi o hinihirit sa akin ay "Pakilala ka naman ng mga kaibigan mong babae!" o di naman kaya'y "Magsama ka naman ng chicks!" ... aba kung minsan pa nga'y "May marereto ka ba jan sa akin?"...

Lagi na lang as in lagi na lang! Kaya minsa'y ako'y napapatigil at napapatanong sa aking sarili...

Mukha ba akong PIMP???!!! Mukha ba akong maraming BABAE SA MUKHA???!!!

Kung bakit lagi akong natatanong niyan... isang malaking misteryo...
