Greetings from Renxkyoko Iglesias !
Oy ! About this blogging thing…. do you sometimes feel it’s become an obligation to post something, even if you think there’s really nothing you can write down that will interest readers of your blog? At this moment, my mind is blank. Well, I can talk about some current issues like the acquital of that p*ssy coward George Zimmerman, or this idiot guy Edward Snowden, the security secrets thief. But then, I tend to run my mouth off and offend readers,y’know, and I don’t want that. So, let me gather my thoughts for a sec……
[ ... ]
Oh, yes ! ! My Mom and I just discussed about the possibility of going on another trip next summer. This time, we’ll go to Asia, specifically, Philippines, ( of course ), Japan, Thailand, Singapore , and South Korea. This depends on my employer though. Believe it or not, I have to sound them off one year early, like I did before we went to Europe. My cousin is coming with us , of course, and guess what, her boyfriend too. She’s 14 now, she was 13 when we went to Europe and she’ll be 15 when we go to Asia. There’s a 99 % probability her Bf is going with us. His mother is so happy with the invitation and already asking how much the trip would cost. I don’t know if she could come up with $ 1,466 by January , 2014 ( We buy the tickets for Manila, Philippines in January,) and additional $1,500 ( for Asian tour) by June , 2014. My cousin and her Bf are childhood friends and have been classmates since first grade. Sweet ! I don’t know if their relationship’s going to survive though. His mom likes my cousin very much. She always takes her to go shopping, go to the movies, and just last week, they went on a 3 day vacation in Monterey, California. Ah, young love ! I’m jealous.
Should I do a countdown again? Last year, I was like, yay, 7 months to go ! 4 months ! 1 month ! Then on the day we left for Europe, I posted something like, I’m leaving for San Francisco Airport in 1 hour. Now for our Asian tour, it’s , 11 months to go !! I guess I’ll do a countdown then.
Oh, newsflash ! The BF’s parents and grandparents will come up with the money. Totally approved ! It will be fun to have a 15 year old boy coming with us, and hear his comments and opinions. I don’t know if it’s relevant but BF is a white guy, so I’m sure he will kind of stand out among us brown folks. he he he And I don’t know if some of the readers have read my posts where I mentioned that we have a beach property in one of the top ten best beaches in the world, Boracay island , and that my aunt and parents ( on joint venture ) are going to build a beach /vacation house there soon. Well, construction has finally started and I’m sure it will be finished in 3 months. Also, we are going to rent it out on daily basis, so if my readers from the Philippines are interested, contact me here on WordPress for reservation. Ha ha ha ( Ha ! I’m into business mode again…..well, my parents are into rental business in the Philippines… apartments and condo units, oh, and a townhouse in Baguio, Mt. Province, which we’ll be renting out on a daily basis for vacationers ) Is this allowed by WordPress?
Filipinos do love to dance. Philippine inmates, 70% of whom are high risk criminals, are taught to dance as part of their rehabilitaion.
Filipinos are either crazy or have a good sense of humour.
Did I just say Filipinos are crazy? That sign was seen at a school’s gate.
Sorry I digress.
By the way, our beach property is right behind Shangrila Hotel… in fact, we share the same property line. We were afraid they might even have taken a few feet off our property. Big corporations are like that, right? And that Shangrila Hotel land used to be owned by my great grandmother. Her heirs sold off that big chunk of land to the hotel conglomerate. * shakes head * I don’t like it when big corporations come in. Somehow they destroy the pristine beauty of a place.
I just wrote that my mind was blank, but here I go again chatting and blabberring endlessly. I suddenly got excited about our next trip while writing this , so pardon me. Gaaaah ! I’m supposed to post about my Paris tour but I ‘ve chatted too much. Next post, okay ?
While I’m at it, I’d better make use of this post and advertise about our Baguio townhouse for Philippine readers of this post. The pictures were taken when we were there on vacation 2 years ago. Some of the units are still unfinished in the picture so the place doesn’t look much.
By the way, the place is a mountain resort.
That’s me sleeping…. you can see the veranda , the house is hanging for dear life on a cliff, but the view is spectacular from the veranda.
Below are the million-dollar views from the bedrooms. The townhouse has 3 floors, and the bedroom shown here is on the second floor. The pictures were taken using a disposable camera ! He he he I’ll take better photos next time.
That’s yours truly in Bagui 2 years ago.
The ubiquitous Starbucks. I couldn’t believe when I saw it there up in the mountains.
The lady in the picture with me is my cousin, a very pretty medical doctor. I masked her face though.
The photo of me is the ugliest so far, but I love it.Bahahaha ! I’m wearing a tribal costume here. This is a mountain resort in the Mountain Province. I doubt indegenous people of this province still wear this attire. This is for tourists.
LOL I jumped from France to the Philippines ! But I’m hyped. And to think I started so lame and dull !
Boracay Beach ! Woooh ! It’s on ! Construction has began ! ! * I see dollar signs* Anyway, there’s no one living in the house. It’s our relatives who use the house and bring friends, and that kinda annoys me. A week before we went there, the whole cast of one noontime TV show were there for a week, and forgot to close the windows…. it rained , so the living room got all wet, including the furniture. ( A TV star is the GF of the son of a family friend ). They paid for the damage with microwave oven and toaster. o.Oa Oh, well. Anyway, the townhouse is up for rent on a daily basis. We still have to figure out how much.
Okay, this is all for now. Our second day in Paris, France is next.
Good day to all. Be good, be nice, be cool. PEACE !
Gaaaah ! This post is so random.
