The Sunday Currently Vol. 01

I came across this kind of post as far back as 2 years ago and I've always wanted to try it out but for some reason it never happened... until now.

Reading Wattpad fanfics featuring Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza. There are so many talented writers in the fandom (the AlDubnation) who create really interesting plots from fluffy to tearjerkers to SPGish stories. Maybe when I have more time, I'll list the ones I enjoyed the most and post it here.

Writing about my favorite romcom movies for a future post.

Listening to the soundtrack of La La Land and alternating it with the current hits on Spotify,

Thinking about what to cook for my son's lunch tomorrow.

Smelling nothing.

Wishing for more inspiration to write.

Hoping for a productive yet relaxing week ahead.

Wearing an olive green plaid shirt received as a gift. And since the giver is flying back to their home country in a few days, I decided to wear it to their despedida party today to show my appreciation.

Loving my family. It has been a family event filled weekend making me feel blessed to have them in my life.

Wanting a lot of things from the mundane like Alden and Maine bobbleheads to the more serious ones like learning or better yet re-learning how to drive so I can get around on my own. I already completed 2 driving courses but there was this one time that I almost crashed the car and that left me rattled. I have not driven since,

Needing some serious motivation to work out and be healthy.

Feeling bloated due to a binge eating weekend. Remember I mentioned that I had a family event filled weekend? Well, that involves food....lots of them. There was lechon, kare-kare, dinuguan and sweets of all kinds such as ice cream, sans rival, etc.

So that's it for now. 'Til next Sunday...

Fab Feb

Next to December, February is my second favorite month of the year and here's a few of the reasons  why...

It's My Birthday!

The moment February 1 comes, there's always that inexplicable feeling that something good is coming my way. I look forward to our family gatherings on occasions like this because it gives us permission to eat out and be merry.  Be it at home or in a fancy restaurant these 2 elements (family + good food) make birthdays memorable and meaningful. I already have an idea where we'll go this year and I'm excited to take them there.

89th Academy Awards

I have been watching/following the results of the Academy Awards since I don't know, high school? Or maybe college. I am curious which movies gets the Academy's nod which in turn prompts me to watch it. Plus the glitz and glamour that goes with the annual ceremony is also fascinating to watch. I have no favorites this year as I have only seen one out of the nine movies nominated for Best Picture. I'm a bit of a sucker for musicals so one Saturday a few weeks ago I asked hubby if we could see La La Land. It did not disappoint. Well, the ending was (SPOILER ALERT) a downer but overall it was good. I love the music and it is now in my current playlist in Spotify.   

Destined To Be Yours

Yes, I am one of them - ADN/AlDubdation. But I am more of the quiet supporter on the sidelines, the lurker in social media and online forums. I prefer to fangirl peacefully in my little corner of the nation. And as any And as any ADN (inactive I may be), I am excited to see my favorite couple in their first teleserye and see them regularly on primetime TV starting this month.

So there you go. Those are 3 of the things that I am excited about on my birth month. By the end of this Fab Feb I will be a year older and hopefully a year wiser, too.
