What's Up: November 2012
Who knew November would be so awesome? I surely didn't. But looking back, we started and ended the month with holidays so you know it's bound to be a good thing. It was also a ridiculously slow yet busy month. The days went by so slowly but the hours so quickly. It doesn't make sense, I know.
Still, we started the month with my almost annual visit to the land of Singafun to visit the siblings and I'll talk about that some other time.
SG Day 2 and I'm already exhausted from Ikea and Mozza. Swanky we are when we're with jamypye
SG day 3. Beer De-Virginization thanks to Marla and Brotzeit. The sausages win. The spicy ones? Not so.
SG day 4. Pamy's got a weekend. And we're already tired ourselves out. She took us around Tiong Bahru. So pretty.
SG day 5. Hi, Ashna! It's great to finally meet my brother's girlfriend. She's very pretty and definitely overwhelmed by us. Sorry!
I can't believe I'm at work today. But with two meetings with the big boss, one can't exactly skip the day. I shouldn't schedule flights that arrive 3 hours before work.
Oh hey, US elections. Go Obama! I obviously can't vote, but it's always so fun to track someone else's elections.
We found out that our top AE is leaving us. I'm going to miss Hazel. I'm sure the newbies will be fine. But I miss her already.
I attended glasswinged's birthday salubong at Pipino and thanks to my beer devirginization, the peach beer was amazing. It didn't even taste like it.
This is also known as the day that refused to end. I was in meetings the whole day. And 45 minutes for an MRT? No thanks. I hate commuting on a Friday night.
It was the one year anniversary of my great aunt's death. It's been so fast. The only plus side is we got to see my cute second cousins.
My favorite part about the weekends? Catching up on all the TV I missed. This is slowly becoming my new weekend habit.
So much work but I promised officemate's I'd drop by their anniversary celebration so after work I ended up at Republiq for the Top Gear party. First time in the place. Definitely not my scene.
OMG I got home at 2am! There are so many presentations up ahead, I literally have no time to finish presentations. I promise to get home earlier.
OMG I got home at 1am! I love how I got home one hour earlier. I'm also very thankful that everything else got cancelled.
Finally, a night to relax. I ended up at Poco Deli, the best place ever with Marla, Stephie and Lou. Always fun to destress with them.
The sleepless nights are finally catching up. I woke up so late that I ended up going straight to a meeting from my house. The evening though, I spent with dear Macy watching Breaking Dawn. Thank goodness, it's over/
For more, I tried starting my catchup earlier and I think I work better when I start on a Saturday.
I got to spend my Sunday with Mama Lily. Chilling in her house is hot but always fun. And finally, I got to watch The Dark Knight Rises. Brilliance.
For some reason, I haven't been feeling well (late nights?) so I took a sick day off. Again. I'm a little worried at how many times I've been absent this quarter.
For all the griping I do about work, there are still days when I love an awesome client. I'm going to miss handling the mens brands cause the people I work with end up so chill. Petroleum for the win.
I'm sill not used to conducting interviews. I never know if I'm feeling the person right. But I've been tasked to do some, so i ended up getting tips from LifeHacker. Let's hope I'm getting this right.
The MRT broke down and it smelled like smoke and the driver was not reassuring at all. I always get scared when it does this but when the driver is so nonchalant about it, I get even more terrified.
We had another birthday salubong and this time for my future quasi-boss, Koko. The Candy girls are always a safe bet to spend your Friday night with.
Because of Thanksgiving, there wasn't much to catch up on. Still, some milk tea and munchies while re-watching Hart of Dixie and Emily Owens never hurt.
My parents dragged us out to Wilcon and then Eastwood for two hours of my life. I'm such a grandma. I actually wished I stayed home.
You know what I hate? The bank. I can't believe my account got closed. I have to be more diligent about this. How could I not have noticed this?
I love Yabu and attending the opening thanks to Hazel (and seeing the SB girls) was the best way to pick me up from my laziness.
Happy birthday, Pietro! My second brother turned 22 and I'm glad I was able to get off work early enough to meet them (and more) for dinner. I've also never felt more single in my life.
I'm so happy for the holiday but also so very sad we have to say bye bye hazel hung. We'll miss you so.
Holiday! Celebrate! I love waking up late and chilling at home. Sure, I got my allergies but nothing can ruin a holiday. NOTHING.
And so we're down to the last month of the year. Wow that was fast. Before you know it, I'll be cramming my year ender and my holiday shopping (which I have yet to do). I just want to get to the non-Christmas break and skip the next two weeks of work, please?
