Canadian Cousins Come to Town

I’ve been busy these past few weeks. My cousins from Vancouver are in the country, so I’ve been driving them around the metro. I’m the official family driver now. Haha! We’ve been taking them out shopping, drinking and clubbing. The Viduya clan also took a daytrip to Tali Beach, where we ate and swam the whole day. Fun times!
With Grandma, while she was undergoing her dialysis.

There’s Always A Reason

Things are finally back to normal. My MacBook’s alive again; I picked it up from the Service Center last Thursday. My grandmother also checked out of the hospital and has been back home since Saturday. Things are good. :)
Anyway, I was reading through my archives and saw what I wrote 4 years ago. I liked it, so I’ll share it now.
I’ve always believed that everyone we meet in life, we meet for a reason. I believe that there’s a purpose behind why certain individuals were made present in our lives. Some are there to make living a pain, and torture us emotionally. Some to keep us sane and happy. Some are there to show us what life is about and let us feel their unconditional love. Some are simply there to help and teach us life’s lessons. Some enter our lives only for a few minutes, while some enter and stay for quite a while. Either way, each and every person we encounter will leave an effect on us in one way or another.
So, if someone comes into your life and after a while leaves you with a feeling that you’ve been stabbed in the chest, don’t be disheartened; that person came into your life for a reason. If you have someone that keeps you sane, that never fails to make you happy, be glad; that person is in your life for a reason. If you have someone who loves you unconditionally even if your flaws are more than the good things about you, rejoice; that person is in your life for a reason. If you have someone that helps you understand the ways and realities of life, who shows you that there’s always something to look forward to, take great pleasure; that person is in your life for a reason. And, if you meet people who stay only for a minute and meet others who remain a while, be delighted; all of them came for a reason.
The reasons may be vague as of the moment. Some reasons may even take a while to understand. But, in life, nothing was put by chance or by mistake. They all come to transform and mold us into the person we were created to be. =)
Sick MacBook and Sick Grandma

Excuse my absence, things haven’t been too colorful in my part of the world.
First of all, my MacBook’s hard drive died on me two Sundays ago. I lost ALL my files and have been computer-deprived ever since. I had to say goodbye to the thousands of irreplaceable photos and files, and have had to resort to local and cable television to satisfy my TV Show fixes. That means no Grey’s Anatomy, Prison Break, Lost, nor Ugly Betty downloads in almost 2 weeks! It’s still in the Service Center, so I will have to bear with the loss for another week or two.
Then two days after my MacBook collapsed, we had to rush my grandmother to Medical City, Ortigas. She had been feeling and looking weak since she arrived from Canada last month, but looked too pale for her own good that Tuesday morning.The doctors sent her to the I.C.U and started her dialysis (she had actually been diagnosed with renal failure ages ago and was already supposed to undergo dialysis back in Canada) right away that evening. I’ve been sleeping at the hospital to watch over her ever since.
The first few nights were quite hard, because she looked really weak, but the whole family was relieved when she was moved out of the I.C.U to her own room last Saturday. She’s doing well now, and has been eating regularly. She was supposed to fly back to Canada this Friday, but now she’ll have to stay for another month or two until she is well enough to travel.
Anyway, I’ll go back to regular blogging as soon as things start going back to normal… and when I finally get my MacBook back.
Let’s Get Pampered!

My grandmother who’s based in Vancouver is in the country for a month. She’s been very weak since she arrived, and has spent most of her days just resting. Today, she woke up feeling well, so she requested me to drive her to the salon where she got a well-deserved pampering.
She’s quite kikay for someone who’s 74 years old. Not only did she get a foot spa with a manicure and pedicure, she also got her hair trimmed and colored. And the icing came last when she treated her locks to a hairspa and got her eyebrows threaded! XP
But of course, since I was also at the salon, I treated myself too! I got a footspa.
