Comings and Goings

Hello, dear reader! I’ve been busy, hence this blog’s hiatus. This post will be quick and don’t expect coherence, musings or philosophical whatsits with quality. It’s going to be generally just what the title says. Here goes:

  1. I left you with a cliffhanger in my last post two months ago. The photo I posted there was a clue in itself. The lines were actually from Anberlin’s song Adelaide. So, what was with the week after I posted that prelude? I should now cut to the chase and not leave you guessing anymore. I went to the city of Adelaide in South Australia. (Nope, it wasn’t for pleasure. It’s work-related.) It was my first time going out of the country alone. It was also my first airplane ride… and a lot of other firsts. Some things in life are unforgettable, really. Details? I must oblige myself to put it in a separate post.

    Cuddly, cuddly creature.

  2. Exactly the month after celebrating its three years of existence, this corner of the web, of which the frequency of the postings can be likened to a submarine’s disappearing-reappearing act, has been nominated as a versatile blog for the first time. I am deeply honored and grateful, LJ and Sir Carlo, for the recognition.
  3. Got myself a sunburn last August. A sunburn during the wet and typhoon season in the Philippines? Yes! I didn’t know that the Palawan sun could be unmercifully bright and scorching hot during this time of the year (and nope, I’m not a big fan of slathering sunblock on my skin). It was perfect though for the beach. Spent a day in Dos Palmas Island (remember the Burnhams and Abu Sayyaf?) snorkeling, kayaking, basking in the sun and toasting my skin. Visited Puerto Princesa’s subterranean river and was reminded of the movie Sanctum.

    Beach, baby!

  4. APA referencing style is making me crazy! I’ve been helping my mother complete her master’s thesis and I’m glad that I could be of help but never have I disliked citation as much as I do now.
  5. Thinking of going burgundy.

A Prelude to This Week’s After

Line not mine. It’s Anberlin’s.

So what’s with this week’s after? Next post will most likely be about it, but for now, a cliffhanger, err, the prelude will do. ;)

The Wait Was Worth It.

The nine weeks and one day of constant anticipation after I have bought the Anberlin concert ticket last January officially came to its end the night of March 9 arrived. Unfortunately, March 9 is a day sitting right dab smack in the middle of the week so it meant ditching classes so I could get to the concert venue earlier than 6pm. Fortunately though, I only have one class to attend on Wednesdays and it’s in the morning, so no ditching of classes occurred. Warning: The writer was in a fan-girl mode when she wrote this. This post might bore you.
