Beautiful Sunday # 368 - For the better

This post was intended for last week. But much of my thoughts are confined from everything that happened this week. So much changes and adjustments came with the additional responsibilities. Days before the last weekend, I've been rendering additional hours for work. Unfortunately, those efforts became useless. I still failed to comply with my deadlines. I gave up, went home early last Friday and gave myself some rest. I worked on the wee hours of Saturday and soon enough, I completed everything. Unlike most people, I find my working pace whenever everyone is asleep. The silence and stillness of night till dawn never fail to complement my productivity.

Beautiful Sunday # 367 - Halfway

I'm feeling unproductive lately. I'm stuck on the same task the past weeks. I have more than enough time, but I can't seem to find my momentum to accomplish everything. I'm nearing my deadline and I have no choice but to finish everything this week. I swear, I will silently celebrate once I completed this task. :p But seriously, I'm beginning to feel worried. I hope everything gets better this week.

This weekend was Father's Day. We celebrated at home with our favorite dishes from Miguel and Maria. It's another favorite hometown restaurant. I should blog about the place soon. But since my family are not in the mood for going out, we opted for Grab Food Delivery. I'm so thankful for Grab Food. More than convenience, I guess it's the reliable friend of introverts, anti-social and lazy people like my family. :p We had paella, crispy pork belly, vegetable salad and my favorite, baked salmon in honey, garlic and cheese. I'm quite afraid this will become a bad weekend habit.

Some thoughts lately : Distrust

A few days ago, I was consoling a friend who underwent another heartache. In the middle of our conversation, I shared my sentiments about groups and advocates aiming to uplift the rights of women. I didn't expect that coming. I guess it was triggered by my friend's unfortunate situation.

Beautiful Sunday # 366 - Midyear Break

The past week was something I look forward. I had a three-day mandatory leave from work. As always, I made plans and half of it didn't push through. :p I took home some work from the office. I gained a freelance work, which I thought I can accomplish over the weekends. I was aiming to complete a five-day morning run. My ending, only half of the tasks were completed.

Beautiful Sunday # 365 - Farewells

I've been looking forward for the past weekend. After months of waiting, my family was able to celebrate the 70th birthday of my mother. I secretly invited my auntie and cousins, who live away from the city, to surprise my mother. Everything was perfectly executed with the help of my cousins. I always love the role of spearheading surprises and creating some tears of joy after. 

Best Things To Remember When Moving With Your Family To Your New House

As much as possible, families don’t want to move from one location from another because this task will require time and effort from them. Usually, they’ll have to scout for the best moving company NYC, inquire about their services and costs, and shell out a specific amount of money to pay for their services. Families will still have to keep track of the NYC movers they hire to ensure that none of their valuables are damaged during the move. If you don’t want to be stressed and be covered in debt, always remember the following things when you’re moving with your family to your new house:
