Chinese cherry blossom tattoo

my bday present for myself this year.
what it means
"For the Chinese the cherry blossom is a very significant symbol of power. Typically it represent a feminine beauty and sexuality and often holds an idea of power or feminine dominance. Within the language of herbs and herbal lore of the Chinese the cherry blossom is often the symbol of love."
i'm at 90% now.
yes, it's a tad bit juvenile and no, i don't care. the design is nice and feminine.
ok...91% and rising....
can't wait!

bend like a pretzel

or at least i tried my darnest best! hahaha!

i barelysurvived my first Bikram Yoga class last night and i have to admit, sans the random nausea attacks on the first part, i loved it!

for a first timer who has no sense of balance and very limited flexibility, i lasted the whole 90 minutes class in an overly heated room. without fainting. ok, i almost fainted hahaha! but it was worth it. i sweated buckets. seriously! plus, the instructor was uber nice and the class was fun.

after my melbourne indulgence, a bucketful of sweat is what i need.

my muscles are in pain and i could barely walk down a flight of stairs but i will go to class again tonight with the hopes that one day, i too can bend like a pretzel or at least make my forehead touch my knees! hahaha!

funny conversation with papa

when i learned about yet another typhoon hitting the Philippines, i immediately called home.

here's how the phone call went:

me: there's a typhoon again. be safe all of you.

papa: yeah, i saw it in the news. tell your mama to stop cleaning!

me: hahaha! you tell her! i'm going home next week

papa: have you found a rich aussie boyfriend yet?

me: no eh.

papa: well you have one week!

you gotta love my dad! seriously, did you smell desperation? i did! hahaha!
