74/365: All I Want for Today Is...

15th of March

Today is my birthday and I’m not planning anything special. All I know is I want to give myself a relaxing day which I started yesterday by doing a morning run and a walk in the park.

I did not even register for a birthday run as I annually do.  Because if I did I will not be able to relax because I need to train.  But this does not mean that I’m giving up on running – I will definitely NOT.  It’s just that I want my today to be simple and really relaxing.

I also did not invite friends at home or to celebrate or party anywhere.  Not because that I’m anti-social now LOL. Again, it is simply because of the same thing.  I want to relax.

I also did not plan for a getaway because the planning and the trip might stress me out as well.  If I have a choice I want my today to be quiet.  I am supposed to remove my birthday info on my social media accounts but that would mean a lot of work removing it and putting it back on.  Plus that my 365 Day Blogging Challenge will be incomplete without my birthday being part of it. Anyway checking on my social media accounts today is a part of my relaxation.

So today as my birthday will be a day that I always like it to be.  Spontaneous!  I will definitely spend it with my family but we are not planning anything big. There is one thing though that I still want to do.  And that is to have my cake and blow the candle with my wishes.

And speaking of cake Google sent me a lot!

Google made my day with this doodle!  This is a lot of cake huh!

Happy Birthday from Google - Copy

I’ll share you the fun about this Google thingy on another blog post ok. Because as I have said I want to relax today ha ha!

There’s a lot more to be thankful for all the thoughtfulness from family and friends that also deserved a special post and I am definitely be doing that.  Let me just relax today and enjoy my cake.  I know you are all wishing me a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! and that is more than enough plus a lot better with a cake (naughty grin).

Tomorrow Is Not Promised

I was going around my stuff that I packed two years ago, back in the time when I decided that I’m done with the corporate world.  I realized that I did not check back to this box-load of stuff since I packed it when I exited that world of mine. The sad thing is that, I’m digging this box because I’m looking for a document that will support a stupid system that halted something that I had worked so hard for a couple of weeks.  I was feeling upset and frustrated while doing the digging. I realized there are lots of things in this box that I really really love.  They are of no financial values.  Just the silly stuff that I can’t take away so I just keep them.  As I picked and tousled things, I came across some small notebooks where I used to write anything that I can think of  at the moment. One of the small notebooks is a favorite since college days.  It is covered with my stamp collections and in it are my favorite quotations, prose, phrases and some poems that I personally wrote.

Go Kart at SM Mall of Asia Amusement Complex

I’m doing my usual morning run at the SM Mall of Asia bay side when I spotted this area.  It kind of caught me by surprise seeing this area as colorful and lively because I remember during my last run, this area is used to be surrounded with iron sheets coverings, the same thing when there’s something being constructed inside the coverings.  And then I remembered that I had a short break from my morning run.  It seems like this activity is launched while I was on short break from my morning run.   As usual, every time I see something new that looks exciting, I am excited to share the info to you all.  So for those who are into cars and driving, this one’s for you! “Go Kart” ! It is located along the breakwaters of Manila Bay at the SM Mall of Asia Amusement Complex just right after the The Giant Ferris Wheel/The MOA Eye .  Locational Photo The fee and basic rules Fun and Safety Rules are properly posted in the area but to give you some advance info on what to wear

Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children

“this place will break your heart, will make you cry, will make you want to reach out, and will make you feel grateful & thankful, all at the same time…”   They are located at: 1030 Tayuman Street, Tondo, Manila. Their telephone number is (+632) 255-0832 and the contact person is Sister Anselm. I wrote that caption in this same season last year, my first time to visit a place called “Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children”.  I was with a  group of friends along with our respective families.  I could never be thankful enough to our friend Rupert and his family for leading us to this place.  It was not my first time to do a charity visit to an orphanage and I sort of wonder why we were “brief” that this is for special children.  I only realized what that briefing is about when I see for myself how “special” these children are.  I apologize if this may not sound good to some, but the sight of the sick children is heartbreaking.  I tried to look tough and not to
