I know, I know. It’s been a long time. I can’t even remember what I posted last. Well, until now work took over most of my time and aside from that a little bit of studying that I need for my future.
So, at this time, during Ramadan, we get six hours of work. That means 2 and a half hours less of work and that really makes a huge difference. I have to enjoy this month to study, work out and rest a lot!!
And one more thing, more than a month ago, one very interesting happened in my life and I never thought it’ll happen. After 14 years I get to see my beloved Dong Bang Shin Ki! SM Town went here in Dubai last April 6 and I’ll definitely make a separate post for that. Oh, with my journal, it took around 7 pages just for day’s experience. But really, it was worth the money, effort and an off. Haha! Aside from them I finally saw BoA and KangTa, the guy who never grow old.
And here’s the proof that I saw them with my two eyes. And definitely, I will be a Cassiopeia for more years to come.
The past few months was quite busy. My mom visited me for almost a month and I tried my best to take her around the country as much as I can. She enjoyed the whole stay, she was able to cook for me too! And I tried again the dune bashing this time in Al Ain. It was really good and the money was well worth it.
This year will be another year to be busy. Another JCI will happen before the year ends.
This was the once in a while gathering for the department. A night of fun, filling our stomach while enjoying each other’s cuisines. It was a night to get drunk though I don’t drink at all. haha!
Happy New Year and definitely I’ll be in and out of the social media for this year. Work, yes! It’s another year for JCIA and it’ll be a lot of pressure this time. Good luck. I’ll do my best. Fighting!
The year 2017 is about to end and I know I’ve been in MIA for such a long time. This is my longest in my entire social media life. Anyway, a lot of things had happened. I believe this is the most challenging year I ever had in my entire UAE stay. I’ve been working my butt all throughout, studying and a bunch of things. I usually go for my annual leave but this time, I went just for 10 days. It was short but well worth it. During that time, I had the most memorable moment in Makati when I cried in the street of Gil Puyat and I don’t even know how I was able to cross the pedestrian because I thought I will fail. Most probably people were thinking I was heartbroken. haha! Now, I’m just laughing on it. There were also some decisions meant to be regretted and I agree. Lesson learnt. Stay away from toxic people. 🙂
I realized that I am now on the stage of what you call as adulting. I feel like resting at home most of the time, weekly groceries became less except to some pasalubongs, and you get happy when someone gave you a household item as a gift. Haha!
I have to say an early Hello to the New year. I wonder what’s in store for me. 2017 gave me one of the best accomplishment I ever had in my life. I hope the next year will be the continuation of everything.
Happy New Year.
P.S. I still have to post my 2017 vacation. TT.TT
It’s UAE’s 46th National Day! Everyone’s celebrating it and and we had a competition on which area was the best. Thanks for all the effort from our reception everyone appreciated it. We didn’t win though. But it’s alright.
And we’re having a looong weekend! I can’t wait to go to Dubai again. ^^
It was supposed to be a surprise birthday greeting but it was a fail. haha! It turned out that the birthday girl was surprised that I was present. I have a tendency of 80% not to be present due to my work. It was still a great evening though. 🙂
Can I still run? These are the words that were on my mind the past few days.
When this is one of the things that makes me happy and active. So I had a terrible back pain for the past few days. I thought it can be managed by massage but no. I decided to see our neurosurgeon and asked his advice. He gave me a muscle relaxant, a pain reliever, and an MRI scan just to have a peace of mind. I was bargaining not to give me any medicine that might make me drowsy, but I have to give up. Taking the muscle relaxant for the first three days was not pleasant. I want to sleep the whole day. But the pain was not gone. My MRI Scan appointment has come. Unfortunately, that day was so busy and good thing I made an evening appointment. What they’re saying about the MRI Scan is true. If you’re claustrophobic, you can’t do it. And it’s quite loud, the technician will give you a headset. Some say there is music but for me, there’s none. Haha! Good thing, I don’t need to remove my braces as I only have to do the back.
Ok, the result. I thought it’s good as I can’t see anything much until the technician told me that there’s a little problem. The disc between the lumbar 5 and sacral 1 slipped and compressing the nerve. I did not expect that this is the cause of my constant back problem. I thought I was just tired. And it’s been a long time I did weights in the gym. I don’t do weights anymore. I was sad. The first thing came to my mind, I can’t run anymore. I remember I was planning to join a track and field group but now, it’s shattered.
As I talked to the doctor, informally, he suggested only a surgery if I don’t respond to the medicine. And I am planning to taper it off soon! I’m a bad patient. -.-
I’ll be in a total lifestyle modification. I might opt to brisk walking or swimming. I just can’t give up not working out. Thinking about it makes me cringe.
Well, let’s hope for the best though. ^^
