Beautiful Sunday # 342 - In the middle of the holiday

In the past years, December is quite a laid back period for my teaching stint. But changes in the school calendar happened. We just started second semester and everyone is having their own adjustment phase. In my case, I still struggle having a 7 am schedule. I've been teaching for almost a decade, but having early morning classes require me some time to settle. As for my office work, I admit the need to improve my productivity. I was slow and lousy, my working pace wasn't the same as last year. If there's anything to make me feel better, I hope to finish one last report before 2018 ends.

Little Known Facts About Bulacan

The province of Bulacan is one of the most popular provinces in the Philippines, located just 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) away from the city of Manila. Established in 1878, the place nicknamed the “Land of Heroes” or the “Northern Gateway from Manila” is a sight to behold with many amazing places to visit, food to experience, and people to interact with.

Beyond the obvious facts like its rich history and tradition, especially its significance during the Philippine Revolution, Bulacan has so much more to offer. 

Here are a few little-known facts about this amazing province that may just convince you to visit, or even maybe invest in a home to live there.

Beautiful Sunday # 341 - Holiday

The long weekend was the best.  I was able to accomplish some year-end errands. I completed my Christmas shopping. I spent an entire day with my cousins. I was able to successfully book a last minute staycation with my friend A. More importantly, I had my most awaited samgyeopsal. It was the best way to cap off the holiday.

Before savoring the long weekend, I had my share of patience testing incidents. Lengthy meetings and heated discussions that as always, left me drained and exhausted. Explaining my side while everyone is obviously leaning to rejection. Listening to incoherent and irrational thoughts. Dealing with people, who wants to look and feel smart. In the middle of that "battle," my mind wandered and brought me to other places and circumstances. I thought of my life if I was a full time freelancer. If I get paid for taking photos and doing some visual merchandising. Or if I simply return to my work station and get things done. I hate complications, but that's how things work in the world of grown ups. 

On the lighter side of life, I love this watermelon postcard from Marieken.
