Beautiful Sunday # 300 - Long week ahead

If there's one thing I love over the past week, it's the rare chilly weather in Manila. I love the week long sunrise, coupled with a cold breeze. Same goes whenever I leave work, I love the feel of the wind on my face. I wonder how long this weather will last. Soon enough, everything will be over when February enters. A few more months, it will be the hottest summer again. :( 

Other than worrying about the weather, my pressing concern centers on my freelance work. Thinking about it now, I feel disorganized and worried. I'm tied up with deadlines this week. The week after, I'm not even sure if all the work will be over.  I need to clear my mind, preserve all my energy, patience and the best time management skills. Oh and I have to add, some people skills as well. :)

On the good side, here are some beautiful things that happened last week in photos.

Happy Mail - Pardon the services of our local post office, I'm just starting to receive Christmas cards and other mails this week. Thank you Terra for the cards. :)

Beautiful Sunday # 299 - First for 2018

Hello everyone! This is my first Sunday post for 2018. I'm feeling positive because the past week gave me a good start. Much of it were attributed to the accomplished freelance works. I still have works lined up and I'm more than thankful for these rare opportunities. Added to this, it's been another year of keeping our new year family tradition. My cousins in Marikina gathered together for new year's lunch. I'm also happy that I managed to finish a book and blog about it. Strange Weather in Tokyo is in my list of best reads!!! After browsing my 2017 posts, I learned that I never made any book review. This happened even when I purchased a lot of books last year. Admittedly, much of it remain unread. This is something I wish to improve this year. I want to finish and blog more books, apart from taking nice photos. :p

Book Review : Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami

I can't recall when and how it started, but I have an intensifying interest over Japanese literary pieces. In particular, I'm drawn to the segment of light, easy and contemporary reads. While shopping for Christmas presents at Fully Booked last year, I thought of buying something for myself. I didn't find anything interesting at the small branch in Gateway Mall. I was about to leave when I saw the lone copy of Strange Weather in Tokyo. And just because it's Japanese, my impulsiveness hormones worked.
