Beautiful Sunday # 146 - Long Lost

I know that this is supposedly a Beautiful Sunday post. I should write positive and nice things. But just for this time, can I be allowed to rant? Someone tested my patience and composure before the week ended. I'm really tempted to relate the incident and vent out everything. Unfortunately, I knew the fact venting out here will never resolve the issue. Despite of everything, I'm still thankful that I have a few close friends around me. Before I went home, I related my sentiments to my two friends. I cursed and said all the bad words. Sorry... After a long verbal diarrhea, me and my other friend went to the mall and feasted over a great dinner. Oh well, my story always end up that way. A bad story will be concluded with a great and sinful dinner or another shopaholic attack. So imagine if my life would be converted to a plot for a drama series. It will definitely be boring, annoying, useless and a complete waste of time. No prince charming to provide those sappy or romantic comedy scenes. Wait, I think that's another issue to begin with. Hahahahaha

My friends don't really read my blog. One of them don't even know that I blog. Nevertheless, I'm very thankful to both of them. I love you to the moon and back B and M!!!! While there are some people who are best in cooking a perfect ruining dish for me, I'm blessed to have friends who can provide the best antidote.

Setting aside this not-so-good aspect of my life, here are the few beautiful things that made my week.

I found my long lost Korean friend!!! I don't have intentions of blogging in the middle of the week. An unlikely email landed and it was more than enough to make me the happiest.

Cold sunrise - The delayed sunrises and colder temperature in the morning ... How long will this last? I'm loving these cold mornings and the rare times I get an 8-hour sleep.

Two fruit boxes in a day - I needed this!!! This a great distraction to potato chips and all my coke intake. I have to admit though that all those stress caused me to double my coke intakes. At some point, I felt that my blood has nothing but sugar!!

Examination week is supposedly my favorite week - except for the fact that I'm faced with tons of paper to check and grades to pray for ahahahaha

In the middle of the workday.... - Oh well, wish I could express my full sentiments here... There are days when I just stare at my laptop's screen feeling nothing and suddenly, my eyes will release those unexplained tears. Grown up struggles I continuously battle...

It arrived! - Thanks to the Cath Kidston sisterhood!!! I was able to purchase this bag way cheaper than the price from CK's local branch. Big thanks to Mother E for arranging everything. Leah, please blog about your own CK's loot :)

Perfect read? - Found this 50% off from National Bookstore, thank you M for forcing me to purchase. Haha Although honestly, I'm not a big fan of self-help books. I always find this genre as an irony?!? I read a few pages but over time, I'm beginning to lose interest. Much of the examples and cases given were patterned to US data and settings.

Found a long lost favorite - Fried potato on a stick!! (Piniritong patatas, masaya si Princess Sara ahahaha)

The past week actually started good for me. The problem I've been dealing since January was finally over. In the middle of the week, I heard from a long lost friend. Before the week ended, I was served with a perfect ruining dish. The weekend started with another set of challenges. Grown up problems!!! I really hope that the upcoming week will be so much better. I needed it.


  1. Someone should go and sell those potatoes on a stick in my hometown, I would be very grateful :-) And is that mango in the fruitbox? I love fresh mango, but I always think it's too much of a hassle to go and get (and prepare) one....

    1. There's a machine that places the potatoes on a stick. I checked out and it was exaggeratedly expensive!!! Hahaha Not worth its singular function

  2. Aren't dear friends who know what we need (a fabulous meal and a chat) precious? Like you, I cut back on sugar and enjoy nuts for a snack, no sugar and lots of protein. Oh that floral purse is charming. I LOVE the postcard of Cebu that you sent me.

  3. I'm so happy to hear that you heard back from your friend that you lost contact with so many years ago. I hope this is the beginning of your continued friendship. Sounds like a tough week, hang in there:-) Those pototoes on a stick look delicious.

  4. Nainggit ako bigla sa fried potato on a stick. May powdered flavoring ba? Hehe! But seriously, cheer up. I do hope you have a better week ahead. :)

    1. Alam mo may cart na dumadaan sa may alma mater mo :) Dun namin siya na discover. Yup, may flavoring option

  5. Grown up problems...we all have them and they never go away. Sorry for so much hitting you at once though. I've very glad you found your friend and oh what a beautiful new Cath bag....I'm so jealous! Have a GOOD week my friend and namemate! Sweet hugs, Diane

  6. I am amazed I have never seen potatoes on a stick! What a delicious and fun thing to make! I know what you mean by ranting never helps, only forgiveness lets us move on and not get bitter. You had many bright things happen this week, I did also! Onward!

  7. I really like the floral prints of CK. I'm sure napasaya ka naman ng bag na yan, so keri na rin maski pano. Hehe. Smile ka na, everything is gonna be okay. :)

  8. Hi Diane,
    I'm sorry to hear that you had an upsetting incident, but thank goodness for your best friends to hear you out! And that's great news that you found your Korean friend :) Owning that cute CK bag makes up for all the bad stuff, right? And yes, the blue mug on my blog is from CK, although from their outlet. The fried potatoes on a stick look delicious! Hope the week is off to a good start for you, take care!!!

  9. I tried to read self-help books but they don't seem to work for me. Naiisip ko kasi "sus, madaling sabihin, mahirap gawin"" :))

    Baligtad tayo, lately, I find myself enjoying sweets and softdrinks. hindi na nga ako nakakapag tea :(

  10. ang ganda nung baaaag mooo! :)) also, gusto kong itry the potato on a stick. :")

    xoxo, rae

  11. Ingat sa oily and sugary treats! Therefore, ingat sa nega emotions.

  12. I definitely will, Diane! Excited nako sa package ko from Mother E! =) Your CK bag is so pretty, nice choice!
