i have been on six different airplanes for the last 3 wks. to say i'm exhausted is an understatement. to say i didn't have fun is a complete and utter lie.

after coming home from jakarta last thursday, i barely had the time to unpack because i had to pack another set of clothes. this time, for my Camsur trip the following day.

the CWC trip was long planned and i almost didn't make it. if the jakarta trip didn't go on schedule, i would've missed the fun that is CWC.

no, i didn't do the wakeboard thingy. yes, i'm such a loser.

i did however get got myself a spankin tattoo. yes, it's henna. hahaha!
we stayed in one of the trailers which was ok albeit the not so squeaky clean shower room. most of our days were spent in the cabanas anyway where we ate and drank and ate and drank to our belly's content.

okay, maybe next time, i will try the cables. maybe.

one week down, another to go

one reason i didn't mind coming back to Jakarta is the fact that my colleagues here are nice. so far, everything has gone according to plan. we are even a bit ahead of schedule which is such a relief since i have a scheduled CamSur trip the day after i fly back to Manila. hopefully everything goes well next week.

i've been here for just a little over a week and while i love love love Indonesian food, i'm at the verge of almost gagging at the thought of another nasi goreng or bacon or waffle. don't get me wrong. i know i raved about the uber delish breakfast buffet at the hotel and the local dishes and i still think they're good but having them every single day for 8 days straight kinda spoils the palate.
note to self:!

i missed my sister's birthday last monday and i'm gonna miss Father's Day tomorrow. my brother had to undergo a minor surgery and i so so so miss my nephew. that being said, i can't wait to go home. and eat my mom's adobo :D

one week down, another to go.
and i'm coming back here in July.

deep fried baby what????

imagine my shock when i saw this in the menu!
naturally i had to ask if they really eat baby gold fishes here. turned out that the menu meant, baby fish fried to a golden crisp.

from Jakarta with love

greetings from the land of nasi goreng! as with my previous trip here, i'm staying Hotel Le Meridien where the breakfast buffet is to die for and the service is superb. the only downside is that internet isn't free.

that being said, i won't be going online as often as i usually do.

so there. i'm just checkin in to say i've landed safe and my tummy is full :)

when buying luggages

make sure to test the combination lock before leaving the store.

otherwise, you will end up trying out all possible combinations until you get the right one.

now, if after the first few tries, you are able to get the right combination, good for you. if not, you might end up spending precious time trying to unlock when you could've spent that time actually putting clothes inside that friggin luggage!

or you could just start packing early so you won't freak out when the stupid lock won't open using the default 0-0-0 combination hours before your flight.

i'm leaving in 2 days (if my visa arrives tomorrow that is) and i have yet to pack.
i bought new luggage and it's still in it's package from the store.

at any rate, one thing i know for sure is that i won't be having the same problem i had in Korea coz i got me a bigger luggage. a spankin red one from samsonite.

now, if i can only bring myself to get some clothes in the luggage, then i'll be good.

butterflies in my stomach

the past couple of weeks fell very well on my favor. guy from work and i have been bumping into each other a lot. talking to him is easier now. even managed a few jokes which both made us laugh. o-ha!

i don't know what happened but he seem to now feel at ease around me as well. last week, he made a bet with me that whoever loses will treat the other to lunch. well he won. which meant i have to treat him. i haven't. i know. i'm a dork.

but what can i do? the butterflies in my stomach are just wiggling too much. plus, i'm not even sure if the bet was for real or just his way of saying something for lack of anything to say. paranoid much?
