Ohmygollywow! It’s been almost a month since my last activity on this blog! (*gasp)
Sorry for that. Moving on, I have A LOT to tell you guys. SIGH. I don’t even know where to start.
Let’s start with the latest.
So last week (last Wednesday – November 13), I boarded on a plane heading to Zamboanga City for the printing of our campus publication, KAWASA, in which I am the Editor-in-Chief. I asked a total number of 5 Printing & Publishing House to accommodate our printing need but they all declined for they are busy printing election paraphernalia. There is one publishing house who offered to cater our printing need but their quote is way expensive (more than double our expense budget) and without the assurance that they would finish the job within a week’s time. So the next day (last Thursday – November 14), I boarded on a bus heading to Iligan City. Ma’am Inday of Ivory Printing & Publishing House was kind enough to accommodate KAWASA’s printing need only a peso pricier than our expense budget. Plus, Ma’am Inday assured me that within 4 days’ time, they would finish printing. And true to her words, in the 4th day, the goods was already ready to be picked up. I thought what I’ll be nannying back to Tawi-Tawi would only weigh about 15kilos. I was shocked when the publishing house’s staff weighed the goods. More or less 83kilos. How would I transport a thing that’s double my weight?!… Good thing Bruce Rhick Estillote, my trusted high school friend, was there to help me find a cab and help me settle on the bus heading to Zamboanga City. It was a bus that has the most uncomfortable seat ever, by the way. I arrived in Zamboanga City (November 18) around 3am and was picked up by Chatee Saluan, my husband and I’s friend. By Wednesday (November 20), I was on board Cebu Pacific plane to Tawi-Tawi. I survived.
This 2nd semester of A.Y. 2013-2014, I am enrolled in 6 subjects (18 units). Though in our school, you can’t gain scholarship in just a semester (2 semesters of excellent grades), still I’ll try. My aim for this semester is to be a President’s Lister (GPA of 1.24 and higher). I just want to experience being one, just for the heck of it. I have already visualized myself achieving the goal and I had goosebumps. Hahha!
PEOPLE, SHOPPING, PLACES, FOOD
I bought shoes, backpack, pashmina veils and a skirt in Marawi City’s shopping center, Padian. I bought toiletries and other cosmetic products in Watson’s (Iligan City branch). I bought Queen of Babble book in Book Sale. I also bought back-to-school necessities and a couple arm (and finger) candies. A couple of stuff here were bought by my hubby. He insisted on buying me things. I didn’t object. teehee
