Jaipur…

It was your typical Thursday… Not!

Rhum Coke and Vodka Sprite

After work, we went to The Fort to watch the “Battle of the Bands” 24/7 style. Since it was too early we went out and ate at a small Korean restaurant after we took several pictures. Forgive me if I look like a fat banana. The motif was silver and gold so I donned yellow…

When we got back, the bands were already playing. We missed the PREPAID band play. We caught the FINSERV band playing. The POSTPAID band played last which had two female vocalists. I particularly liked the SMB band because OM Ron rocked… he he he he… Well he just proves that there’s no such thing as “too old to rock.” But of course the LAD band took the price with their song “Nakakagalit!” They rocked the house. They even had dancers and powerpoint presentation. San ka pa?!

Dona wanted to dance and so she dragged Ana. Then both came back after a few minutes and dragged Karen and me. We were supposed to leave at 9:45pm but hell… We danced the night away until our feet hurt!

Taba

Last Saturday 19th of April, I met the love of my life… Kiko brought in Taba to me… He’s so “malambing” and “makulit.” The most malambing thing he did was while was washing dishes, he’s being makulit dog he was but soon got tired. After which, he rested his head on my feet and eventually used my feet as his pillow… During his first two days he barely ate and he cried all the time. But now, he eats like a horse and craps everywhere! Sighs! That’s a price I have to pay for having him but I know it’s worth it.
