post Bday post

this is again an overdue post..

yes Ramadan just ended and we're back to the usual office timing.
though at the first week of Ramadan i felt that there's too little time for me to finish things that i usually do at work, but having those days of going home early- for sure am going to miss it. Was able to do alot of household chores then, but i must say, alot of times were spent on our bed for those sluggish mode ;)
and me being back to this again- I somehow still don't feel like working.
anyways, Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim friends. I greeted two of my bosses yesterday and am glad they replied with thanks and full of good wishes as well.

lemme now share the photo ops during mah daughter's 3rd Birthday par-tay.
she had a grand time i tell you.

California dreaming

All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)

and the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)

I´ve been for a walk (I've been for a walk)

on a winter's day (on a winter's day)

I´d be safe and warm (I'd be safe and warm)

if I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.)

California dreaming (California dreaming) on such a winter's day...

Heard this song this Friday morning and I was struck with nostalgia, was turned back in time and was reminded of childhood memories where nanay and tatay would non-stop play these type of songs on Sunday mornings before going to church. I remembered that I used to not like those melodies, but now, I appreciate them all- every single lyrics and melody of it and I miss my parents so much. They both went back to PI last June parents' moving back to PI and though were miles apart we still would keep in touch. As much as I would want now to look at old pix from childhood, I can't since I don't have them with me and I didn't scan them before we left. *sigh* memories just keep pouring. How ironic that you don't appreciate things when you were younger and when you get to this age, you would always come back of how it used to be. I also realized now we always have music in memories in history and that music could help you travel through time. As Bob Marley quotes, "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."

Last night we went to accompany our friend Maan and Alex to Nissan showroom in Shiek Zayed. They would buy a new car since their flat which is located in Sharjah has some rough dessert sand road which they see and pass by every single day, thus the buying of the new car coz they seriously need a new ride ;p (what a great reason to buy a new baby ;)).
I of course had fun trying out the autos (even though I am the only one in the group who belongs to the kids coz I am the only one who hasn't have driver's license) and because Infinity is also in that showroom, infinity I wont miss this for the world, lol!

Alex liked the dessert sand stone (hope I remembered it right) color.. us too! xterra beybeh!

with kuya Mat :)

After talking to their agent, we head to the as-planned Dubai Mall. Roam around a lil bit and was really liking to buy new bags. Weren't able to visit LV though as it is jampacked with locals, we just checked Coach leatherwears. Were liking their leathers but I think i most appreciate my first visit to coach in Boulevard at Emirates Towers way back last year, or should I say that there were much more to chose from at that time.

We wrapped our night to our usual coffee time at starbucks. That branch needs some serious additional manpower.

We may go out in the afternoon as I would ask our Professional Photogs to model Chinchin and may be in the coming months I could ready her portfolio :)

I think I have an American dream, California dreamin' to be exact ;)
