An update from yours truly :D

27 Apr

Hi! I know I haven’t updated for awhile so I made this post.

I have been in Manila since April 6 and we’ve been staying in a very nice Condominium somewhere in Makati. The Condo’s name is The Tivoli Garden Residences. You can search it if you want; especially to those who are searching for a nice condo. [They are constructing another building so y’all should check it out. Its much cheaper when they are pre-selling. :D] Anyways, as much as I like the condo and its amenities, there’s no WiFi. Oops, let me rephrase that. I can’t seem to connect to the local ‘Free’ and unsecured WiFi. They, the sales agents, did say there is a stable signal on the ground floor/club house and we are on the 21st floor so it will be a nice miracle that we can fully use it to our advantage (I hate bringing my lappy in public places, you see. It’s bulky and I want to stroll around. I even tried going there with my Tab but sadly I think the connection hates me.) I see lots of other WiFi’s here but those have passwords. Especially nowadays an internet connection is considered a need. (Right?) I’m not a hacker and I am not a ‘Makapal ang mukha’ that could bluntly ask people who are practically strangers for the password of their internet connections. And so, I’m stuck in just playing and making random posts with my lappy and watching movies on the television. The only time that I can access the internet is when we go out and went to the mall that has a strong signal using my phone or my Tab. Ahh, poor me. My cousin has a Sun mobile wifi with her but unfortunately, there are only few areas where Sun signal is strong and where the condo is located is NOT one of those. We really did thought that Sun’s signal here is strong; well, it is in Cebu.

I was bored then this happens. 😀

Its just my second time here in Manila and I’m still not used to seeing a still bright place when it’s already 6 in the afternoon. It’s usually already dim at our place during this time. We sometimes didn’t notice the time and we tend to eat late because of it. I can speak Tagalog quite well but I sometimes forget that I’m in Manila and speak in my native tongue which is Cebuano/Visaya. Its kind of awkward when that happens. So the result is: I’m not so talkative here. (I can imagine Nica making a face that clearly says ‘Yeah, right.’ ahahaha. Peace day nica! :D)

I really thought I was the first one to open the box but someone beat me to it!

Yeah! J.Co doughnuts! My cousin told me about these donuts. She said that her friend really loved it but you have to wait for 2 hours before you can be entertained and there’s no way to be sure that you can get your favorites too! What a bummer! Good thing we saw a J.Co branch at the Mall Of Asia and luckily, we went there when it’s still early and we were able to buy 3 dozens and half in minutes (say, 15 minutes?). Thank God, we didn’t have to wait for more than that. It was my first time eating J.Co doughnuts and I must say, its really worth it. Now you know why lots of people sacrifices to wait for 2 hours just to grab a couple of these tasty treats. I love its taste and I adore that its not THAT sweet that you think you’ll be having Tonsillitis a moment later.

Oh yeah, before I forget! Since the election day is drawing near, we can actually hear the loud BANG! of the fireworks here and there. And so is a band playing and campaigns. It’s practically just on the side of us. I can actually hear and understand every word they said on their campaign and I am not even registered on this area or even this province. *sigh* Well, I can’t do anything about it. So to all those people wearing pink and whose band is playing right now as I typed away, I wish you luck on the coming elections. And may you all walk faster so that you can bother another place/area and leave us all alone in peace. ahahaha. (I just have to write that. 😀 )

We arrived at Cebu last April 18 but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to post this immediately because of the irritating slow  connection. The reason we went there instead of going home to Ozamiz is that we attended my cousin’s graduation on the 20th. On the 24th of April and we officially landed on the big OZ (Ozamiz). And got an excited ‘licky’ welcome by these two:

A/N: Maybe some people don’t know why I always write the last letter of Ozamiz with a letter ‘Z’ instead of the usual ‘S’. Well, because we are BisDak (Bisaya Dako), we tend to pronounce ‘z’ like we say ‘s’, but I don’t know what is really the correct spelling. I actually stuck with ‘Z’ because my late Mama, my Grand-mother, said that our place is actually named after a guy whose family name is Ozamiz.  I just researched about it and good thing, using ‘Z’, is the officially right one and so is the story my Grandmama told me. I hope more Ozamiznons will know about this and begin writing our place with the letter ‘Z’. Check it out it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozamiz
