Thankful Sunday: a Trip, a Compliment and a Whole Lot of Food

I’ve been neglecting to write a couple of Thankful Sunday posts because of a lot of things on my plate. Yeah, I know everyone’s busy blah, blah, blah. I should really learn to prioritize my time.


For the past week, here’s what I am most thankful for.

1. Celine Dion concert
I was so excited to watch Celine Dion‘s concert here in Manila. I even bought a ticket already.

Unfortunately, Celine Dion had to cancel because of her husband’s poor health. This means I get to refund the money I paid for the ticket.

And to SM Tickets’ credit, it already had a system in place to refund the payment. Galing! 

So, why am I still thankful for this? Because the refund would allow me to buy a ticket for Beauty and the Beast. 🙂

2. CDO trip
Office sent me to CDO for a two-day business trip. I’ve always liked CDO. I don’t know what it is about that place but I like the vibe of the city. Not too stressful, not too relaxed, not too urbanized, but not too rural. Just the right balance of everything.

I didn’t get to do much touring but it was very nice to meet our field personnel in CDO. They were very accommodating and really treated me well.

3. Food, food, food
The CDO trip was like a food feast. I was treated to a sumptuous lunch at Red Tail, which is just a stone’s throw away from Mallberry Hotel. The seafood dishes were the best. Sorry, no pics kasi gutom na gutom na kami, eh. 

One of our PSRs also accompanied us (including A and D) for pasalubong shopping. I bought a lot of lanzones and pastel. Sarap!

4. Dinner with B
B and I had dinner two weeks ago. Now that B is based in Muntinlupa, it’s more seldom that she gets to go to Ortigas. So when she texted me that she’s in Greenhills, I decided to just be absent at school so we can have dinner.

As always, dinner with B is full of conversation about anything and everything.

5. Compliment
Just yesterday, I received an email from Boss Daddy. Basically, Big Daddy just said that I’m an excellent digital resource. It feels good to receive compliments from my boss. It’s an affirmation that they know and appreciate what I do for the company and they acknowledge my competence.

But I also take that compliment as a challenge, to continue improving and leveling up my game. 

Oh, my former intern also visited me and complimented me. Sabi nya, di pa din ako nagbabago since nag-OJT sya nung 2010. At ang blooming ko daw. Chos! Hahaha! 😀

How was your week?
