Commonwealth Avenue05:55 am
Getting a ride from dad to the MRT station wins on all fronts because a) I get to skip the crazy traffic; b) I don't have a hard time at the MRT; and c) I get to work a lot earlier and a lot less sweaty. The only downside? I have to be up and functioning before 6am.

office desk07:15 am
So it's week two of planning and I'm glad I'm able to stay in the office for even a bit lest my mail get totally full and unattended. I also get to do last minute tweaking on the presentation for the day and on week 2, I'm a little used to things already -- even if I'm never quite sure if I'm doing things correctly.

office desk07:30 am
The mass of memos I've been creating have filled up my wall. When I was younger, I used to play 'office-office' (yes, it has to be said, twice) with my siblings and I never quite knew what they did but I'd lug around papers and folders and all that. If only I knew what was up ahead for me, I would have probably played, 'sleep-sleep' instead.

Holiday Inn Penthouse09:05 am
We are now on the other side of the penthouse, having occupied the other side the week before. I decide I like this room better even if they're exact duplicates, this one just happens to be the mirror image of the other one. But I like it nonetheless, especially with this looking out our window.

Bonchon Chicken, Galleria12:20 pm
Obviously, I can't get sick of this chicken. I know people think it's overrated but the skin of this chicken is glorious and I am a sucker for skin. Also, because I've been reporting all morning, this next photo is at lunch when we trek to the mall to buy our food. Yes, so un-swanky like that.

Holiday Inn Penthouse12:35 pm
And there it is, our glorious meal. Chicken chops sandwich. It's basically just skin sandwiched in between bread. I thank glasswinged for introducing me to this wonderful alternative to wings -- when you're too broke to afford the real deal, because really, there is no alternative for wings.

Holiday Inn Penthouse02:30 pm
NO, this is not the same photo as the one before the cut. That was while I was presenting, or before at least, and this is when someone else is presenting and I can finally take a back seat but still pay attention cause you know, this really is serious business. I totally feel out of my league being in a planning just because i really feel like I have nothing to contribute. It sounds horrible, but it's true.

Holiday Inn Penthouse03:15 pm
Again, I'm trying my best to be participative and actually give valid points, but it's best I just not say anything and instead, try to stay awake/take photos. Not that this is anywhere near boring, far from it, I have to pay attention or I won't be able to make those reports I need to make. Oh wait, I better get to those soon.

Milk Tea. Is. Evil. Planning has made us very near a milk tea store and therefore is much easier to be tempted by it for an afternoon snack. I don't want to know how many calories are in one of those just because i know I'll try to avoid it after finding out how damn difficult it is to burn a single calorie. Obviously, the gym and I are not very friendly. Milk tea and I though? best of friends.

Gym05:30 pm
Despite our non-friendly terms, I did pay for this damn thing, so I might as well 'take advantage' (of torturing myself) and so I head there instead of getting out of work early (or going back to the office -- I'm not THAT big a martyr). Here I am trying to be diligent about that thing called my health.

Cha Time, Galleria07:15 pm
No, I didn't go back for a second fix. I just got my loyalty card stamped cause I forgot it the first time around. believe me, I was tempted though. I'm surprised I was able to say no, actually. But see, at least this gym thing is sort of helping me save my money on food. Though of course, there are times when I slip. I'm glad this wasn't one of them.

MRT07:35 pm
This is somewhere in between Santolan and Cubao and I just thought it would be nice to show you how desperately tired and disheveled I look after a day at work/working on the fitness bit. Still, let's hope I get a hang of this work/life balance (what is that, right?). Till next month!
