It's Monday and I am on my 'Garfield-mood' again. I woke up fine with a sweet kiss from my husband before he left for work. I"m up and about to start my busy week and gone to wake up my daughter. Then suddenly we are having an argument. I misunderstood her instruction as to what time I should wake her up. She missed an 'important' class/group meeting. Well, it's her fault. I ask her what time I should wake her up she replied "7am!". And then she's telling me that what she meant was she needs to be at school at 7am! Duh! That's two very different thing. Well, I left her to herself since her actual class is at 12 noon. She have plenty of time to throw a fit but I am not gonna be there witnessing it. I'm going to be late for work.
My typical commute going to work is a tricycle ride from our house then a jeepney ride to the office. And the tricycle driver choose this day to get into my nerves. He was insisting that I should ride at the rear side of his motorcycle to accommodate another passenger who specifically told him that she won't ride at the back and would rather choose another tricycle and pay more just to ride comfortably inside a tricycle. Excuse me Mr. Driver! I am your first passenger and there is another woman beside me nearer to your vehicle's entrance but you keep insisting that I should be the one moving. I don't want to make a scene so I just told him NO. And then another passenger came, a guy, and sit at the back and so we're off. But the driver keeps on mumbling, telling things I don't fully understand. But he is referring to my not doing the favor he is asking me. I tried to ignore it but he keeps on talking. I then told him to shut up or I will step off from his tricycle without paying. He shut up, finally.
I told my self to breathe and count to ten. It's too early to ruin my day...or my week. And I am the type of a person who find ways to smile and still enjoy my day albeit a ruined morning. As I ride the jeepney I took my earphones out and attached it to my cellphone. I randomly played a song and guess what's first on my playlist...Pharell William's Happy! Music really makes my day. All my bad mood dissipates. Suddenly I am ready for the day and even for a busy week. And now, I am taking a break, writing on my blog and eating my comfort food...tacos! So bring it on, I'll still enjoy a fun and fab week with my music and my food.
This is the perfect song for me. From a very (our own version of) romantic Valentine's date to a 6-days unforgettable Cambodia/Vietnam trip with friends. And now, my husband and I are celebrating our 16th Wedding Anniversary. Actually, tomorrow is our anniversary but he'll be working so we are celebrating in advance today. I'm so happy I cannot contain it!

This is it! This is really is it! Today is our scheduled trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. My first time out of the Philippines. I'm so excited. I will be going with my husband and my dearest friends. This would be fun and memorable, I'm sure. So wish me a safe flight and a happy trip guys! See you! :-)
Dear Husband, Happy Heart's Day! Thank you for the chocolates and the flowers (even though I specifically told you I don't want to accept any flowers from you anymore, roses in particular). But I would be jealous of other people receiving their flowers, so I guess I'm glad that I have my own bouquet. Thank you for taking care of me and Leslie. Thank you for being the sweetest. For sticking around especially when I'm in my lowest. For being the most understanding when I'm crazy. Thank you for being a friend that I can never get rid of. It's our 16th Wedding Anniversary on the 25th and I know that what we have is not perfect. But I'm pretty sure that we are perfect for each other. I love you.
Dear Cambodia and Vietnam, See you soon. This vacation would be my most unforgettable. It's my first time traveling outside of the Philippines and this will be our Valentine's and Wedding Anniversary date. Plus we will be with the Superfriends. How perfect! I'm so excited and I can't hide it anymore. Dear Daughter, Your daddy and I will be missing you this coming week. Dami na naming utang sa'yo. Don't worry we'll bring you pasalubong. I love you. Dear Exes, Happy Valentine's to you all. Hoping you are happy as I am now. Dear Money, I don't want to worry myself about you at this moment. I will make do with however little you provide. I can do this!
