SPF 9000

Summer is in full swing here in Manila and it is hot as hell. I mean 30+°C (86+°F) weather pretty much from morning until late afternoon. So, there have been a couple of days when it’s been hard to get out of bed because of the crippling heat. That eventually lead me to drinking bucket-loads of water, which brought me the first surprise of the summer—a 10 lbs. weight drop! I haven’t even started doing anything physical, but that’s some pretty solid encouragement.

On the 15th I’ll have to go and register for summer classes that start on the 17th and end around the 20th of May. I know that will cut about a month from my summer vacation but it will be nice not to just waste away at home plus I’ll still have weekends and the time after classes to either go walking/running, goof off, or go to shows and stuff like that. We might end up hitting the beaches later in the summer if my parents feel up to it, but for now I’m just re-charging my batteries in preparation for summer classes and an upcoming music festival.

You can’t spell “hiatus” without “us”.

It’s been a really, really long time since I last posted anything. That was probably mainly due to the whirlwind of a 2nd semester I just had that felt like it would never end. But it finally has! Ended that is, and I’m pretty much  free for a little over a week before registration for summer classes and summer classes start up (I know, we work too hard). I have a feeling there will be a lot going on this summer though. I’m thinking of getting into better shape, learning how to drive, maybe a martial arts class, and a music festival or two.  Hopefully procrastination doesn’t get in the way 🙂

Breakfast for Dinner and Other Drunken Adventures

So, my godfather invited us to the (re-)opening of his restaurant, Breakfast at Antonio’s, which is an all day breakfast type place. We were supposed to be there at around 4PM, but ended up leaving our house late and running into traffic and basically ending up there at around 7PM. When I saw the menu I was pretty much torn between getting breakfast food or getting the lunch-y/dinner-y food they had cause I was so hungry and I didn’t think pancakes would’ve cut it. I decided to get the MOST AMAZING omelette EVER, it was a 3 egg omelette with bacon, mushrooms and cheese with a side of hash browns and a panini. While I was too hungry to take a picture of my food, my sister got this:

Mmmm...DAT PANCAKE

pancakes & sausages with a side of cinnamon covered banana & pineapple
