Today is the second and last day of my off from work. I woke up 4:00 this morning, had pancit canton for breakfast, and finished my one week worth of laundry. It was really exhausting because I also washed my best friend’s clothes since he just would not do it. It took the washing machine 7 cycles to finish its own share of work but it was I who rinsed the clothes off soap and suds by hand. By 7:00 am, all of our clothes were already hung by his window and all around his room. I took a final glance at my work, kissed him on the cheek as he sleeps, before finally going downstairs to rest.
In fact, I have many things to accomplish today. It was my pay day yesterday and I was more than satisfied with what I received, aside from the thirteenth month pay I got last December 8. That is why I am thinking of sending my family a bigger chunk of my salary than usual. I was already calling my Mom while writing this post but I got no answer after several attempts. I also have to find myself a perfect pair of shoes or short pants to update my wardrobe. My best friend will not allow me, I know, since I have been buying clothes almost every pay day, but it’s one of the things that make me feel good. However, one thing that will surely please him is that I am not planning of buying books anytime soon. Eight books on my waiting list are enough.
I think we will be spending most part of the day in our favorite coffee shop. He needs to finish his work assignments and I will just bring my Norwegian Wood book to get myself busy as well. But I am looking forward to going to Greenhills with him today for me relieve my spending itch. Finding myself a laptop is one thing I will probably do when I get there. It’s been difficult for me to write and blog without my own personal laptop, and we have been planning about it since yesterday, so I hope I’ll find a good one. =]
