Dear Lord,

Please let me make my proposal fly. I got murdered today. Let me do better next time. I promise to be more diligent.

I was only gone for a moment and yet I have missed home so much.

I wonder though why the feeling has not gone away... I have been back for 13 hours already...

Hong Kong was a blast. I went crazy shopping. *thwaps self!* I have to start saving up again, Christmas is coming and I have tons of godchildren *hehe!*! I am also thinking about doing something drastic. Not sure yet but am thinking about it. I have to brace myself. :)

In the meantime, I love Reebok EasyTone. I still love my FitFlops to death but now when I want a close toe shoe, I can opt for Reebok.

This post sucks.

Finally done preparing for class. Something that I have to endure this whole trimester. On top of that I have to write papers plus a deliverable this coming November 29 which should not really be a problem if I was not going to go somewhere else. Not that I am complaining.

Oh and yeah, I need to take care of something emotionally taxing on top of the already cognitively challenging task I face everyday. *sigh*

I am going to give me some yogurt. Everything else will just have to wait.

For now.

Cherry On Top!

Ice cream always brings me happiness. Got my cherry on top today though! :)

Thank You Lord, I do feel Your presence in my life through the things that You bring my way. Please let me finally make the next step tomorrow.

I was able to run 5K. My day was nonstop today and yet I feel like my day was not productive. It was one meeting after another. I feel like I was not able to accomplish anything.

I do not like this feeling at all.

On the brighter side of things... I got to eat Frosty again after a really long time. :) *yey!*

While the boat ride was supposed to be in raging waters, we were surprisingly placid. When there was a hint of a bump on one of the sharp rocks on the ice cold white angry river, we paddled away with calmness and logic. I must say, it felt really good. I think we were honest that there was fear but we also established that we were going to see this through. We are in this rough waters together and no one needs to jump overboard for us to land safely. I just have to remind myself that I should not let the fear of icy cold water stop me from moving forward.

In the meantime, we just ought to enjoy this adrenaline-pumping, endorphin-inducing, exhilarating and crazy ride. We have to relish each moment because each moment spent we never ever get back.

I had such a grand time in Krabi!

The food was great but of course that goes without saying because Thailand has amazing cuisine! Apart from the usual Tom Yum, Phad Thai and satay I was able to try their street food like their version of banana chocolate pancake, sinful but oh so yummy! The coconut was a bit disappointing because it was not as sweet as I remember it to be.

I also had a lot of adventures! I went water rafting with my students and it was uber fun well, save for the part that I scratched my shin on the rocks when I jumped into the river. The guide said it was okay to swim a bit. I also got a few bruises when I pulled myself up (with help from the other guide) to the boat. I went to an ATV adventure which was not all that bad considering I am not a fan of ATV's. I always thought it was bohoreeng. We got to do fish spa and I was able to play with an elephant and watch a monkey show. All in all, not that bad. But it does not stop there! The following day, in spite my injury, I decided to go rock climbing (actual mountain!!! How kewl is that?!_ at Railay. I highly recommend King Climbers because they have a high insurance coverage, they have good equipment and their instructors are very patient, can speak good English and they know what they are doing. Plus, they let me take the later boat so I can stay longer in the island for a swim at the Railay beach!!! *weeh!* I want to do this again when I get back!!!

Shopping of course is still cheaper in Bangkok, not so many choices at Krabi. Night parties are not so great as well... If you want dancing go to Phuket or Railay. They have a great night life there!

While there I ate a lot so Thursday night I went out to run 5K. It was too late at night already so I decided against doing 10K. I might just run some time again next week. Argh... :)

I really love Thailand and its wonders of nature! Philippines is a lovely place, if only our tourism could be as well-managed as theirs. :)

Met some nice people there too... I invited them to visit our Islands because our beaches are hands down still nicer than what they have (or am I just biased? Nah!!! Our beaches are the best!).

Moon River

I got to run 8K yesterday with friends out in the streets *yahoo!*! Then I went to Alba to pig out, literally *haha!*! They say you are what you eat and that's what I ate at Alba! Today, we went to see Resident Evil for free thanks to the bill at Alba *haha!*! Good thing, the tickets were free because the movie, as expected sucked big time!

My highlight of last night was Moonriver. :) It's still my fave song, never mind that I will never fully grasp what it really means, I just really lurve the song! Plus, I was in really good company last night when I heard it. Oh and yeah, I got to play with cute kids yesterday *yehey!*! So many treats!

Thank You Lord!

"... waiting 'round the bend, my Huckleberry friend, moon river and me."
