After a long day at work, I go home, got myself a drink and plopped myself on the couch. I grabbed my phone and started to check emails when one from a sender I don't remember caught my eye. I opened it up and this greeted me:
I thought, What spam website did I put my info in again this time? I almost deleted it but decided to call the number listed. Talked to the guy who picked up and he told me to be at Pier 360 first thing in the morning. I said, "Is this for real? He said, "Youll find out tomorrow."
I show up bright and early the next day and almost couldnt believe my eyes when I saw the ship that will take me on a full on, all-expense paid trip around the world!
Quickly got on board and settled into my new digs. After a few hours of being at sea, the captain announced that we were at our first stop and since the weather was beautiful, I should partake of the water activities they had available. Decided to try my hand at paddleboardng.
I set my sights on one of the islands in the distance and started my adventure.
I thought the island was deserted but found that it was inhabited by strange people laid out on the beach. I think this is their sun-worship position.
Beside him sat a basket and something glistening caught my eye. I reached in a grabbed it as the man awoke. I hightailed my way outta there but not before I turned back and proudly displayed my catch.
Got back on my board and paddled back to the ship. I didnt realize I went out so far.
All of a sudden, a giant wave came out of nowhere. I said to myself, "Thats what you get! Karmas a b*tch aint it?"
I tried to ride the wave as much as I can but before long, I tumbled into the water. After tossing around for what seemed like an eternity, I found myself in a deserted beach with the finest white sand between my toes.
BBQ360. I hardly go anywhere now without this watch. It represents this great community and I hold it very close to my heart.
Since the Bronzo caused all this trouble, I might as well sit and admire its beauty.
For me, there is no song in this world that elicits more emotions than Man In The Mirror. Make that change. Doesnt have to be big, but a little goes a long way. Love him or hate him, Michael Jackson is the greatest. EVER.
Flo Rida - Good Feeling
All I need to do is turn this song up, close my eyes, and Im transported back to PDay DU. Unforgettable .
Gullivers Travels. This book made my imagination run wild as a kid. Loved it then, still love it now.
Forrest Gump. I've seen this movie countless times but when I catch it on TV, I still sit and watch until the end. Even though I have it on DVD and Bluray.
Since some of us live here in the US and some are still based in Manila, it's not often that we have the entire family all together. This picture of us taken last year in San Francisco when my sister and parents came to visit. I love my family very much.
PDay DU and the rest of my trip around Australia. Can't say enough about it, truly one of the best times in my life.
One meal? Man, if were connected on FB you would know that this girl can EAT! How can I pick only one meal?
Ok, maybe for starters, Philly Cheese steak from The Bazaar, burrata and toast, some dim sum and sushi.
First course: Pecking duck crepe from AIX, Umami burger and Halal from 53rd and 6th in NYC.
Gotta have some Filipino food too! Red hotdogs, Taho (warm, soft tofu with sugar syrup and boba), crispy fried pork washed down with local beer.
But being the steak lover that I am, if I can only have one last meal, a bone-in filet, side of potatoes, mac n cheese, and some good cabernet sauvignon would have to be it. Then dessert plus a shot of espresso to cap everything off. PERFECTION. Any of the two steaks will do.
My mom sometimes had to be both mother and father when he was out for months on assignment. She kept us in line, raised us to become who we are now, all while still managing to have a very successful career makes her a superwoman in my book. Moms are the best! Shes a bit of a comedian too! Now you guys know where I got that gene from.
