Melancholy and Nostalgia
Friday August 22, 2014
I am missing a lot of things lately. People and moments but mostly people. The weather even agrees with what I’m feeling right now. I’m just here lying on my bed playing songs people in my life has recommended while relieving memories from the past.
I really miss my cousins so so much. We’ve been spending time together last month and when I was on vacation. When I got back here, they’re gone. Scattered across the world. Some of them lived here with us and here I am feeling so alone. I don’t have a shopping buddy anymore, no one to drive me around, no one to talk to, no one to tease me. I just miss them.
I miss my friends especially my best friend. Wish we can see each other this weekend. I have so many things to tell her and I know she’ll have stories for me too.
I miss being a nurse. Although I’m being a nurse to my family here at home, I still miss being in the hospital. Can’t believe I would say this but I really do. I’m taking some time out, study for something so I can apply abroad.
There’s so many things I really miss that I can’t even type them one by one. There’s just too many. *sigh.
I’m really thankful for the internet where we can catch up with each other. And to all my online friends who’s always there to talk to me. :) Thank you!
A Little Haul
Thursday August 21, 2014
We shopped a lot when we were on vacation especially in Thailand. Bangkok is one heck of a city to shopped to from their little stalls on the streets, thrift shops to big shopping malls! Mostly we shopped for souvenirs but I also shopped for myself. Here are some of the things I bought minus the clothing.
I’ve been obsessed with pink nowadays. I guess it still is my favorite color. I’m loving hot pink right now.
watch for just 100 baht, H&M phone amplifier and bow, passport holder from Victoria’s Secret (mine was originally nude in color but I switched with my mom), owl purse (cos I love owls too)
How cute are these bracelets? The daisy and the unicorn are my faves! I’m gonna give the rest to my friends.
NONG NOOCH BOTANICAL GARDEN, THAILAND
This was day 3 of our Thailand adventure! We went to Nong Nooch Botanical Garden. It’s the most amazing and largest garden I’ve seen! The photos doesn’t even justify how beautiful it is. There’s so much more views and attractions to see that aren’t included here. (We were so excited running around that the photos turned out blurry, my cousin was the photographer not me. LOL.)
ON THE WAY// We rode a van to get there and there were few tourists there too. The conductor was so friendly and chatty. I was having a selfie session on my seat and the driver noticed me. He kept glancing and smiling at me and the conductor was trying to make a conversation with me in Thai. My cousin who knows how to speak Thai a little said the driver likes me. Haha! He’s kinda young, maybe just my age. They kept saying “Philippine Beautiful” and I just want to hide my face the entire ride cos there’s other people in there who can hear them. They’re just being friendly though and they don’t do it in a creepy way. I just waved and smiled at them when the ride’s over (thank God!).
ELEPHANT RIDE// First thing we did was ride the elephant. It was a bit pricey for a few minute walk but it was so worth it! I rode with my mom. The elephant’s tall and the seat was wobbly so I was trying not to squeal but I can hear my cousin’s screams behind me! haha.
After 15 days of traveling to other countries, I’m glad I’m home. I do enjoy the busy life in Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur but I miss my chill city back home.
I’ve been so blessed being able to travel to those countries and it has been such an adventure! I’ll surely blog about it soon per country. Expect major photo dump. It’s sad we didn’t push the plans on Cambodia and Vietnam cos my cousin has to go back to her work so there’s no one to guide us. It has been fun though. So many funny experiences! :D
We were so early at the airport then we found out our flight was delayed for 4 hours. I took advantage of the free wifi and the time to people watch. I’m an observant person and I sometimes like to watch people and wonder what their life is.
Be Back Soon
Sunday August 10, 2014
It’s been so great traveling in 3 countries: Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. But I’m not back home yet. We went back to Bangkok and we’re still here until the 18th.
We went backpacking to Singapore and Malaysia. It was so fun getting lost in a foreign country sleeping on a bus and some hostel. We met some friendly tourists on the way.
Traveling has given me more than seeing attractions. It has opened my eyes to changes, experiences and endless possibilities.
I’ll blog about it when I’m already home. For now, I’m still enjoying traveling. :)
