#84 Sundays are best spent with food, friends and family.
After church, we usually have lunch together at my Tita’s place. And knowing how Filipinos roll, we would sometimes end up inviting 7 families in her place all at the same time. lol But it’s always fun having everyone around!
P.S. My dad makes a wicked version of Vietnamese Pho!
#83 I am not a public speaker.
There was one time I was asked to speak in church about my camp experience. I was so nervous that I somehow stutter. I felt like it was such a #fail. After the service, two girls approached me to tell me how they were inspired with my story. Also, one of the leaders told me how I speak life to people and that I have a gift in teaching. It made me realize that it’s not about me but it’s about God working through me.
#82 I used to not be a breakfast person.
I am not a morning person, in general. So when I was in high school and university, I skip breakfast entirely since I usually am not in the mood to eat that early anyway (my class starts at 7am).
Recently, I’ve been into preparing breakfast meals. It’s a plus that I get to eat while working so I don’t have to skip breakfast when I wake up late.
My breakfast this morning: nutella + strawberries + peanut butter + banana sandwich. Loved it!
#81 Saturday is general house cleaning day.
Since most of us don’t work on weekends, we decided to clean the house every Saturday. We also have meetings every first of the month so my parents could assign chores to each one of us. The three main ones are cooking, washing the dishes and doing the laundry which mostly rotates among me and my 2 sisters. At first, it seemed hard to do all the chores since we grew up having house helpers. But since we moved to another country where you do your own chores, we have to get used to it.
Oh, and that note in the picture was written by my sister after she cleaned our family room. She’s sweet like that. lol
#80 I am not a coffee drinker.
So sleepy today that I decided to make a cup of coffee (which is 50% flavoured coffee creamer). Let me just say that the taste is still too strong for me.
My sister said it might be because we used Dark Roast Coffee Beans. But I still prefer tea.
#79 Cliff diving
I could never get the courage to do this since I don’t know how to tread water. So I figured I would just drown. :(
But this looks so much fun! Maybe someday…
#78 Rain boots
Everytime I wear my rain boots, it would suddenly stop raining. Coincidence? I think not! (It’s like it only wants to ruin my good shoes.) So here’s my totally inappropriate outfit of the day.
#77 I am nearsighted.
I usually wear contact lenses whenever I go out so I love to be able to wear my eyeglasses at home to rest my tired eyes.
However, I lost it yesterday so I looked all over the house but couldn’t find it. Today, I decided to do our laundry. And to my surprise, it was in the laundry basket. So….
Moral lesson: Do your chores!
# 76 I don’t usually walk and/or jog alone. However, I tried it last Saturday morning and it felt great!
I also don’t like waking up early on Saturdays but for some reason there’s a voice inside of me that’s saying I have to get up and take a walk. So I did, after a few hesitations (and by that, I mean still trying to fight the thought with sleeping). It was still too early so everyone was asleep but I just know I had to do it. So inspired with this quote:
. “Nobody’s going to do it for you, so just do it!”
Looking forward to more of my morning walks!
#75 I feel bad when people use this kind of reasoning.
I have a friend who did not eat for days because of the exact same reason. I told her that what she did didn’t actually helped her.
My advise is that you eat smaller portions frequently throughout the day instead of starving yourself. They say it also increases your metabolism. Well, that’s what I do and it seems to be effective.
