Old and New

To live in another country, you can either embrace it or regret it.

As for me, I’m totally embracing it! Hehe…

It’s been almost 2 weeks and I must say I’m so grateful with the old and new friends I’m meeting.

This weekend has been a blast – people, food, laughter. It’s a time to take my mind off from my job hunting thoughts.

Last Friday, I jogged with friends at Central Park just here in Burnaby. Finally, we were able to do it after postponing it for many times. Well of course, after we jogged, we ate. Haha!photo 1 (2)

Saturday was fun day and fooood day! Hehe… My former colleague here in Accenture who has been my coach and mentor at work treat me for a fully loaded lunch in a Chinese restaurant. The food was really great. Too bad I wasn’t able to take pictures. But, really good lunch!

After that, I attended a birthday picnic party still at Central Park. Best part of the day. So many kids!

Sunday was church day and movie time after. My jogging buddies and I watched a Tagalog movie, not that we are fans of the actors but we just really wanted a good laugh. We got what we paid for. Haha!  And of course, bubble tea to close the day. 🙂

It was a full weekend.  Though I had to hit the gym when I got home yesterday. I had to burn calories. Haha!

I’m really an extrovert. I get so energized with people around. Hehe!

I thank God for relationships. 🙂

Nuvali

My roomie, Kim and I met up with my friend Nang Yan at Bel-air in Laguna, then, took us to Nuvali. We planned the Saturday afternoon to bike around Nuvali, then do some strolling after. On our way to Nuvali, the rain poured down. So we decided to just stroll around the stores first until the rain stops.

Nang Yan got hungry so we decided to just eat first since it’s still raining. We found this cute, classic restaurant called Toast Box that we all immediately fell in love with the place. Hehe… And just the right food  we were looking for snack.

And so, our bike plan (and suppose to jog also) turned out to be an afternoon delight at Toast Box. We decided to cancel biking and just hang out instead. I had to change my outfit since I was really dressed up to jog and bike. Haha!

The afternoon didn’t turn out the way we planned it but we definitely enjoyed the rest of the day! 🙂 We will definitely go back, and this time, we will definitely bike! Burn the calories! 🙂

Nuvali is a great place to be if you want to get out of Metro Manila during weekends.
