Beautiful Sunday # 315 - Two weeks after

Two weeks!!! I'm not sure if anyone here noticed. I didn't upload any Sunday post for two consecutive weeks. It almost went to three, because this post didn't make it on a Sunday. As much as I'd like to say, there has been so much going on with my life, the real reason was shallow. Freelance works got in the way. :p I've become a slave of my desire to earn additional money. The past weekends meant chasing deadlines, mining data and what seems to be an endless process of editing. While I can always handle the bulk of workload, the changing requirements never fail to exhaust and irritate me. I was working from midnight till dawn. I will force myself to wake up before lunch, with bad skin and swollen face. I even made plans for this weekend. Finish some work and the never ending promise to exercise. Unfortunately, my laziness overpowered everything. ;) 

I was trying to recall all the events that happened the past two weeks. First thing that came in my mind was the historic event between North and South Korea. While for my dear country, I'll keep my mouth shut about everything. :( These days, I just entertain myself with a nice movie, good food and the company of some great friends. I recently discovered Kore-eda Hirokazu's films and the happiness of eating Samgyeopsal. I swear, I can survive a week eating grilled pork belly wrapped in fresh lettuce. I recently watched The Third Murder, one of the critically acclaimed films of Kore-eda Hirozaku. I love the movie and discovered that he also directed another Japanese film that I love, Like Father, Like Son

I don't have much stories to share because life over the past weeks have been the same. Work-home-freelance work- sleep :D I almost forgot, some online shopping. ;) Other than these monotony, here's the past week in pictures.


Weekly table mess



Happy Mail - Thank you Terra for the cards :) and to answer your question, no interesting man up to date hahahaha


Another mail, this time from the Netherlands - Thank you Marieken :)


Found new designs of these Teapot Postcards from Papemelroti


Yay for these books!!! I finally have Kate Spade's three-part series publication. I need three more books to complete her series.


 And another table mess

It's another week again. If there's one thing I miss lately, it's the rare opportunity to travel or at the very least, visit a new place even within Manila. Hopefully, something will come along the way before summer ends.

  1. Welcome back Diane! Napansin ko ngang wala kang blogs the last 2 weeks. Pero okay lang yan kasi marami ka naman talaga ibang ginagawa. Anyway, I have also watched some of Hirokazu Kore-eda's films and I love them! Napanood mo na din ba yung Nobody Knows and Still Walking? Will try to look for The Third Murder kasi mukhang maganda nga. :)

    1. Hi Onie! Thank you, may nakapansin pala ahahahahaha Ni-line up ko na yung Kore-eda films na papanoodin ko. Yes, isusunod ko na yan. Sana maganda talaga. Medyo minsan mahirap lang pala maghanap ng films na may maayos na English translation. Excited na ako :)

    2. Dati sa crunchyroll or youtube lang ako nakakanuod e, at maayos naman ang subtitles. Sana andoon pa din sila hanggang ngayon :-P
      Sisimulan ko din ngayon magbalik loob na sa Japanese films, haha.
      Happy watching! :)
