10 happy things

Friday’s 10 Happy Things // 12

Friday's 10 Happy Things | blog.ditz-revolution.net

Welcome to Friday’s 10 Happy Things where I/we list ten things that made us smile this week so that we can start the weekend on an even more positive note!

It hasn’t been a good week. I don’t know which of these two took the shit cake: leaving the office at 630PM and getting home quarter before midnight, thanks to the winning combination of rain and Metro Manila traffic (cried myself to sleep out of frustration because I’m just so sick of this city); or trying to contain my hysteria in public as a Crossroads security guard and two randoms looked on. Hope they enjoyed the show lol.

I considered not doing 10 Happy Things today but then that kind of misses the point of the whole thing. Here’s this week’s list:

  1. Work sent us home early on Monday so I was in bed by 7PM, typing up drafts for the blog. I felt very productive.
  2. I kind of stopped eating chicken? I wasn’t actively planning on it because lord knows I love my hot wings, but here I am, living on a diet of canned tuna and Spanish sardines. It’s a (sad) pescetarian life. I did have calamares for lunch, though.
  3. Kuse’s Gourmet Tuyo breakfast is delicious and cheap at PHP95.
  4. My Japanese friend, Yasu, telling me he really liked my birthday post.
  5. Sweater weather. It’s cold enough to snuggle under my duvet with no AC, just the windows open and the fan on.
  6. Took Wednesday off because of the typhoon. I stayed in bed with my cats and watched TV shows and napped. Perfect day. ♥
  7. Less than three months until iZombie is back on air.
  8. My friend, Jel Suarez, is a collage artist and launched her solo exhibit at Vinyl on Vinyl last Wednesday. Her show sold out in a matter of hours. I am happy for my friend.
  9. CARLY RAE JEPSEN IS COMING BACK TO MANILA and VIP tickets aren’t that expensive! My problem is that it’ll be at Araneta Center and they suck because the bouncers ask you to keep seated. It happened to us when we saw Carly Rae in 2013 (we had Patron VIP tickets) and we had to move to the lower box section just to dance.
  10. This Carly Rae announcement. Hinting at a Run Away With Me music video? YES, PLEASE!

I hope you guys had a better week than I did. :)

I MADE A BUTTON! Since this is a link-up, it would be fantastic if more people joined so I added the option for you guys to include the button at the end of your entry to spread the word. NOT REQUIRED! :)

    I didn’t like the summer heat and I hate typhoon season, I guess sala sa init, sala sa lamig. >_<

    Number 5, though! Perfect to wear pajamas too <3

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:09 am

      My PJs are basically an oversized shirt and whatever undies I’m wearing hahaha.

    #5 makes me super happy too because it means lower electricity bills for us too yay!

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:11 am

      Very true! I had the AC on every night the past few weeks.

    Uuuugh I feel your pain, sometimes I can’t help crying din while still on the road. I work in BGC and reside in Makati, but it’s so much easier for me to go home to Cavite (where my girlfriend lives) every single time. I really hate commuting in Manila. :(

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:12 am

      Makati to BGC is so near na nga!

      It really is such a nightmare. :(

    No. 6 sounds glorious. <3

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:16 am

      Need more days like that haha.

  • Reply Erika July 11, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Num. 6 is the best. I envy your quality time with the cats and watching TV shows on a weekday. Corporate/Hotelier slave right here. :(

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:18 am

      Oh no. :( Do you get weekends off, at the least?

      • Reply Erika July 15, 2015 at 12:52 pm

        Yep, luckily I do get the weekends off, kaya every minute counts pag weekend haha :) BTW, I love your blog! <3

  • Reply Nickle Love July 11, 2015 at 3:05 am

    Ang corny nung asking you guys to take a seat. No dancing at VIP section? Blech.

    I hate city traffic, so glad I don’t have to deal with it on a daily basis. Hope you feel better now :)

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:19 am

      Diba? Nakakainis kasi it’s a ROCK/POP CONCERT, not the opera!

  • Reply Jae July 11, 2015 at 4:05 am

    Girl, unsolicited advice: take it easy on eating tuna and Spanish sardines. One, eating tuna on a daily basis (or more often than usual) may cause mercury poisoning. Two, Spanish sardines are high in sodium content. I know these things because my auntie was hospitalized for eating tuna everyday, and my Dad had kidney stones 4 years ago from eating too much Spanish sardines (the spicy one’s his favorite!). Please eat them in moderation! :)

        Sorry, friend… Pwede ka naman kumain, pero ‘wag nga lang araw-araw…

    Hi Helga! Cheers for finding the silver lining even if bumabagyo. ? iZombie question, Major or Lowell? Hahaha :)

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:22 am

      Major!!! There was something very unlikable about Lowell haha.

  • Reply Corinth July 11, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    that commute time is awful!! Cainta is so far from where you work! I used to go to Makati for work from Marikina everyday. IT WAS AWFUL because I had to ride the MRT. I can just imagine your frustrations. :(

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:23 am

      I only have to ride an FX and one jeep but it takes forever to get an FX! :(

  • Reply Aneth July 11, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Can’t wait to see Carly Rae!!!!!!!!!

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:23 am

      SAME OMG

    Helga!!! So sorry that I have not joined the link-up for several Fridays already. I have been too busy with the little one and gathering documents for my visa application. I have a draft post for next Friday yet still empty but then I have to start somewhere right? Hehe!

    • Reply Helga July 13, 2015 at 11:24 am
