Parents = Home and Love

Yesterday my parents came home. It felt so good to spend time with them with my mom actually a nice dinner for my dad, Buffy and I. My mom had a dinner to go to and initially she wanted to drive by herself. But then since I know she hasn't driven out to town at night in a while, I decided to take that opportunity to do the chaufeuring, even if it was in my own car. After that I went over to McD's to buy some ice cream for the family so that at least my dad would have some nice dessert to enjoy while watching the tele. Hehe.

Thing is, last night wasn't full to the brim with activities with my parents, but just having them home made everything else seem better than ever. I've missed having them around all the time but they are finally fulfilling their dream of permanently residing in Hippo and that's what's important. Besides, it's a good chance for me to be more independent and matured. Plus I'll have more reason to go back to Hippo more often! Yay.

Sleep came rather easily too last night. I slept soundly and woke up more relaxed than usual. Maybe it's because Friday is finally here, which marks the end of the work week and beginning of the weekend. But again, I think my parents presence helped too. :)

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 1

Hello Blogosphere!!
It is I, back from an unintended retirement from the blogging world. Actually, I never did intend to hang my blogging shoes as I did my dancing shoes. But after what seems like (a) lack of time due to work, and (b) lack of inspiration to write about things without sounding like I'm whining (phew... that was a long one), I decided that after a year of hiatus, it is high time to put some thoughts to ... what do you call this?... not paper... blank blog page? Well just type out some thoughts.
So here we go. 
Starting now.
Right. Now.
Ok. Any moment now. .

. . . .
Maybe I need to eat first. Haha!
