A Night of Exes

Today is the birthday of my ex-girlfriend. I know. Shut up. We're friends.

This evening, Erin and I met up for dinner which turned into a very late one because he didn't show up until past 9! We hung out at Mary Grace briefly then walked to the food trucks between Glorietta and Shang. While waiting for our food, I spotted this guy I talked to once or twice before over BBM. No big deal. Then, on my way back to our table, I practically literally bumped into that (part-time) model I used to go on dates with. I always thought he was such a nice guy so I attempted to say hi but he looked away. That was strange, I thought. I don't remember doing anything to him to be ignored. I just know that we're too different from each other, that's why it didn't work out. I had a feeling I'm going to see him again and true enough, I did when were walking out of the area and he looked away again! I know he saw me. He was with a guy, who could be his boyfriend, but really? No 'Hi' or even a quick nod?

It really boggled me. I'm still wondering--not because I'm attracted to him but because I just expected more from him. Or maybe this is guilt.

V Day Simplicity

I'm not well yet. But I did go to the office today because I'm sick of being home feeling sick.

From my boss.

After work, I went out of town with someone special for a romantic dinner date.

Just kidding. I bought congee and enjoyed my take-out dinner alone at home. :)

I hope you had a good Valentine's Day.

Hello. I'm sick. No, it's not even because it's Valentine's Day tomorrow. I like to think I'm over that. I've been sick for a week now and I hate it. I've had to miss work for several days. It wasn't until yesterday that I went to the doctor and my X-ray result wasn't as good as I had hoped. I really, really want to get well. There's so much on my plate right now it's not even funny.

There's a lot of writing that needs to be done and I haven't started yet so I'll leave my story-telling to these random pictures from Feb. 2 onwards.

No, I didn't get a blood test. Accident.

Wish me well, yeah? Thanks!

What Matters

Oh, how time flies indeed. One moment it's just Christmas then before you know it, it's almost Valentine's Day!

I'm currently in my hometown for a wedding. I'm flying back to Manila tomorrow though so it's a really quick trip. I didn't even bother to have checked luggage on the way here. That's a first. I'm here for a high school friend's wedding which is quite incredible. It doesn't seem so long ago when we were practically kids running around the campus grounds getting our uniforms soiled. Then there were those nights when we'd go out drinking and dancing like it's all that mattered.

Last night, our group got together to celebrate. We were drinking and dancing just like the old times. It was fun.

We're still the same people, still the same friends but it's definitely not high school anymore.
