Back in the Arms of Manila

It has been a long time since I last wrote something here in my small space in the World Wide Web. Not naman that there are no significant things happening in my life these past few days but I guess am just really trying to cover a lot of things these days.

Over the past week (hmm, I guess so from the last post I wrote) there are a lot of things happened already, don’t worry I have drafts of them in my PDA since whenever there are things popping in my head, I scribble them immediately so that I can further build on it. If am not mistaken there are three drafts already from the past week.

I was out of the country over the weekend obviously for work and a side trip of shopping and I must say there are funny moments there that I experienced, will make kwento later.

For the followers of the blog (naks, assuming…yabang!) ito ang mga aabanagan ninyo:

A. Chin- Chin (working title) – the night out story with some Singaporean expats…kung bakit chin-chin…malalaman nyo din yan..cool lang!
B. Wanderer in Hong Kong – reflections written during the Symphony of Lights show at Tsim Tsa Tsui at ang pagbisita at pakikipag kwentuhan sa ilang mga kababayan
C. Wanderer in Back Pack – the overnight back packing experience

Andami kong utang na blog, pero ill find time for that before the week end and another month begin…shucks March na pala! Ilang trip lang December na ulit.

There you go, this is another fast blog over cup of coffee and chocolates. Ill get back to work muna para may pang shopping…pumapatak ang metro!

Breather.

“I need a breather” February 8, 2011; 10:02PM

My friends are used to me sending similar short messages whenever I’m physically or mentally stressed out from work. Its been a very tiring week for me (so far) considering its just mid-week. Operations meeting ended 11.45PM last Monday and the following day I have to be with the country manager for market visit. The past two days subjected myself from various elements overcasting my life (all aspects of it). It was also last night when again I feel alone as in times like this, who wouldn’t want someone who could comfort a stressed body and soul that a warm hug or a simple smile could ease. Then reality confronted me that, yes I am successful in my chosen field at an early age but am alone.

People are right when they said that its lonely as you reach the top because there are only few of you on that level. I cannot help but envy my friends who are part of the majority but they have someone who hugs them, dine with them and comfort them in their stressful days.

But last night’s last night, today I am embracing another full day hoping that this will not be as stressful as the past two days. I wish to have my time off for the weekend, perhaps go backpacking out of town.

I need a breather. A short respite.
