Rice Please

Our family went to Tagaytay this afternoon just to have halo-halo at Razon's.  It is like going to Hongkong to eat at McDonald's... that's what I thought it would be.  Given that we had the most common Philippine dessert, I liked it.  After finishing the yummy treat, the elders went to the grocery to buy salad greens and steak for our swimming party on Saturday.  I followed them to buy diapers and something to eat because I am still hungry.  The halo-halo was a treat but that didn't made me full... I am hungry for something else... rice.  I need carbohydrates.  I didn't mention that I am still hungry but on our way home, my cousins were discussing about what to eat for dinner... they were hungry for rice, too.  I butt into their discussion, hoping that the elders would ask us to eat dinner, but no.  

Home at last... but no rice.

Asians are the biggest consumers of rice.  It is a staple in every Asian household particularly in the Philippines.  They said, you are not a true blue Filipino if you do not eat rice for breakfast, lunch, dinner and meals in between.  

Well, I guess I don't need more proofs to claim that I am a true blue Filipino.

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …
