Yo, I am officially a tambay! Hahaha! My friend now call me "the bum", pwede "the bomb" na lang? Haha!
Sorry for the lack of blog posts, I am sure you guys understand. I am going through a phase, plus I was super busy! Thanks for all those who e-mailed me/ commented on my posts, extending their support and well-wishes. You know who you guys are. It really warmed up my heart! I swear! Thanks again!
My last post was me being a cry-baby, I was still a cry-baby for the rest of the week, but I armed myself with "Google" information on how not to cry- by pinching the skin in between your pointy finger and your thumb so hard. This trick really did work for me. I didn't end up teary-eyed all the time when I was talking to my boss and such. It's embarrassing to be crying, as if I am not happy to be going home for good. It was my plan after all.
Last Monday, my boss gave me a Pandora necklace:
Isn't it pretty? I never owned a Pandora stuff! She knows I love the color pink! I normally don't wear any jewelry while I'm at work, but I have been wearing this necklace for the rest of the workweek. It is really pretty in person. She actually gave me a Tiffany heart necklace on my birthday few years ago,too!
My body clock is messed up lately- sleeping and waking up different times than the usual. I guess my sleep pattern knows that it will change very soon coz I'm moving to another country pretty soon.
Talking about going home for good really soon, I am still looking for a cheap ticket. My gosh, one way ticket costs $1,400! I saw a $600 ticket, but I needed to fly the next day. I read somewhere that one of the tricks to score cheap airfare is to be flexible to fly anytime because sometimes someone abruptly cancels his or her flight, so the airline needed to fill the seat up right away. That's why I needed to pack and be ready to fly anytime. Any other tips on this scoring cheaper airfare, guys?
Speaking of packing, I have been packing like crazy and throwing away all my stuffs that I think I wont be using back home- like winter clothes. I even throw away my dumbbells. I figured that I'll just buy weights back home.
The picture below shows how many bags I threw away. I added 2 more garbage bags after I took this picture:
Last night, my boss gave a farewell party for me. We had Chinese food and a yummy Chocolate something cake (I forgot what it is, but it was yummy). It has "Thank You, ---y" written on it. I forgot to take pictures, I was trying to be "in the moment" and all that. My boss raised the glass and gave a toast twice! Telling me nice things she likes about me, wishing me good luck, on how she sees me succeed on whatever I want to do with my life. It was an 'awwww' moment, she was teary-eyed and I let go of my tears,too. I gave her a heartfelt Thank You card. I wrote how she "made a positive impact on my life", etc. She cried when she read the card. I really felt that she values me. I wonder if she is like this every time someone quits?
And oh, why does everyone mentions and wishes that "I'll be able to find someone special"? I am not that old, am I?
