52nd - Not So Planned

Guess where I am? Hong Kong. Haha. My mum calls me up at work on Friday, and before I know it I'm on a plane headed to the 852 the next day. Do I give a new meaning to the words "short notice" and "spontaneous"? I should hope so. Hah. Anyhoodles, shall be back in Philippines by March 2. I need to be back there by the first week of March.

I miss everyone. I miss Carla and Joko and Chuck. I miss baby Erika. I miss my computer. I miss my bed. I miss Verses. Basta I miss a lot of things.

Haven't left the house since I got here, everything's closed due to the Lunar New Year. Oh, and KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!! to everybody pala. Hehe. Anyhoodles...I will be going out tomorrow though, to meet up with Julie. Also contacted Tako last night, will definitely be getting together with her as I have missed that girl lots and lots. It's such a shame Elle isn't here anymore (I miss you, Punk Rock!).

Hopefully will be able to do a bit of shopping while I am here. Harharhar. On the way home from the airport, I managed to get myself 2 pairs of shoes. Wheee! I love shoes.

Been watching an insane amount of Smallville. My aunt bought the DVDs of season 5 and 6. Hell yeah!

Carla told me I'm happier these days, and I guess I am. I'm a lot more tired and sleep-deprived and stressed (sometimes), but happier because I don't have the heavyweight that was my past relationship dragging me down anymore. Moving on is awesome. And in the words of Liz Phair, "Isn't this the best part of breaking up? Finding someone else you can't get enough of, someone who wants to be with you too."

And I'm not going to deny it, someone else has played a big role in helping me move forward from the mess I was stuck in for almost a year. I've spent a lot of time with that someone during the last few weeks, and I've got to admit that some of those times have been the happiest since I moved to Philippines. Like I said in my previous blog, it's nice to have someone who takes you away. And he does take me away. Literally away, sometimes. Like all the way to Tagaytay. Hahaha. We're not together TOGETHER but I'm happy with the set-up we have now. No expectations. It's refreshing.

However it's kinda terrifying in a way, because I know there's always a balance. Happy one day, depressed the other. Or something along those lines. Basta, I just know that I'll sink back into depression one of these days and hopefully it'll be for a better reason other than some egomaniac womanizer. And also, well...everyone knows how scary it can get when you're at the point where you're not quite in love, but you're developing feelings...and you keep telling yourself to not fall, because you don't know what could happen on impact...but the leap looks so tempting at times.

Anyhoodles...I think I've written enough for now. Toodles!
