The battle of Christmas songs with my friends.

Celebrating Christmas with my friends and colleagues in my place.  We were 2 teams.  Each must write lists of songs in a piece of paper and they have to sing those songs against the other team.  The rule was, not to sing the same song that was sang by the other team and not to repeat the same song that was sang by their team.  In other words, they cannot repeat the same song.  We actually won on this one.  :)  :)  :)

Happy Days!

Current view. That train.

I am not sure if this picture was taken in the US, but I will do this.  Soon.

In 2014 I traveled to the US for 28 days.  I promised myself that I am going back to the US.  But this time, it's going to be me, myself and I.  Sounds crazy?  But I find it normal as I have been alone in Dubai for a decade.  Anyways, I was thinking of going for a train ride from California to New York.  I know its crazy, but it is possible.  This guy Derek Low already did it, why can't I?

Current view.

With the desert climate here in Dubai (currently having sand storm), seeing this view in my desktop is something that reminds me of home (Philippines).  Rain and leaves.

Kabayan Bundle

I just love this commercial.  It's funny and catchy.

I like the way this commercial was created.  Filipinos love basketball so much and they don't care about their height as long as we do clean sports.

I want to have a farm.

I want to become a farmer.  Really.  I want to have my own farm.  It's been like 5 years since I thought of this idea though, but I don't know how to start.

Hello by Adele is currently on repeat :)

I LOVE THIS SONG.  I just have to share the lyrics.

Hello, it's me.
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet, to go over.
Everything they say that time's supposed to heal you,
but I ain't done much healing.

Hello, can you hear me?
I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be when we were younger and free.
I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet.

There's such a difference between us
and a million miles.

Hello from the other side, I must've called a thousand times to tell you
I'm sorry, for everything that I've done, but when I call you never seem to be home.
Hello from the outside, at least I can say that I've tried to tell you
I'm sorry, for breaking your heart, but it don't matter,
it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore.

Hello, how are you? It's so typical of me to talk about myself.
I'm sorry, I hope that you're well, did you ever make it out of that town
where nothing ever happened?

It's no secret that the both of us
are running out of time.

Repeat Chorus:

Current view, current mood

Wishing I'm on that place now.

I am looking forward for a relaxing vacation in Palawan.  Again.

Current view on my personal laptop

Just got home and this is my view on my laptop before entering my password.  The images that Windows 10 has to offer is awesome.  It matches my taste :)

30 October 2015, Weekend Goals

Are you the type of person who looks forward for the weekend?  If yes, we are on the same boat.  If no, think again.  Are you kidding me?

I always look forward for the weekend and I always have this grand plans.  Go to the beach, roam around with my bicycle, meet some friends, shopping, and see the city.  Unfortunately, I always end up in my room, stuck in social media for hours and hours, until I realized that my day end up useless.

But, not this week though, weekend goals, ACHIEVED!

Brand:  Fuji bicycle 
Category:  Urban Lifestyle
Model:  Declaration  
Weight:  11.17 kg. / 24.6 lbs.
In other word, FIXED GEAR.

Last Friday, my sister and I woke up to cycle in our area.  The weather was perfect to cycle and to de-stress.  As the saying goes, "Happy people ride bicycles".  I agree.  When I'm cycling it free up my overcrowded mind and come fresh on the first day of week at work. 

That's my folding bike which my sister use and my fixed gear.  Yes, I am an urban bicycle enthusiast.

After our ride we joined a group who do Muai Thai in the park which is just behind the building where I live.  It was an awesome experience.  We had our session for almost 2 hours. The next day, my body was in pain :)  It means that my body has been rusty for awhile and need a reboot.
oh well, I will talk about Muai Thai on my next session with them.

Today, I made someone laugh.

"Be the reason someone smiles today"

Through random and spontaneous thoughts.

But I am okay.
I think you too.
No hard feelings.
No harsh words.
Just good bye.

56 seconds of Dessert by Dawin (Cover plus Lola NiDora)

Today, I was having fun and thought of recording this song.  I personally like this song because of Lola NiDora who is a popular character in Kalye Serye in Eat Bulaga.  If you are not Filipino and you stumble upon this blog.  I bet you've heard about the popular hash tags HT that's been hitting millions in tweeter everyday for almost 3 months (and counting), the ALDUB. Go figure it out.

*sigh* Needs motivation.

There's this thing that I wanted to do, but couldn't.  It requires money to buy the gadgets and time to produce the outcome.

My Thursday Morning (January 29, 2015)

I haven't used my point-and-shoot camera for a long time and so, I decided to document my Thursday morning.  I was suppose to document the whole day, but I always forget my camera in my office table.

Kape Barako from Philippines

Thanks to my friend for this gift. This is a Kape'ng Barako (English: Barako Coffee). Barako is from the Tagalog word "Wild Boar" who are fond of dining on the plant's leaves and berries. Barako is a coffee grown in the Philippines, particularly in Batangas and Cavite.

Having this in the morning reminds me of home.

Ang sarap ng umaga kapag may kapeng #baraco. Thanks @regie_uy and @ian_ty. #Filipino #TeamManila
