The week that was (February 20 - 26)

Sunday: I got up at 4:30am and got online until 6:00am. Then I went upstairs not to sleep but to sort some papers that I got from the Travel Tour Expo last Saturday. It was really tedious because I had to read it one by one and sort it according to its importance. My wife got up early and wanted Tapsilog for breakfast. Being a loving husband, I got her one from chowking then I continued sorting the papers. I showed some brochures that would fancy my wife and consider it in the future for reference. Then I did some grocery again since were running out of food supplies especially for my wife. After mass at noon, we went back home and had sopas (my favorite) for lunch before going to bed. I got up 5 hours later and got ready for my first night at work and i was able to get there early. I got a call at 10:30pm that kept me awake again for the second straight Sunday night (there goes my full-rest and recreation XD).

Monday: I got two more calls during my shift but its ok since I was able to resolve both calls. I got to do some stuff online as well as update my blog. Good thing my colleague who was on LOA came back and reported as early as 5:30am. That gave me time to get some breakfast at Jollibee and made sure to energize before going home. After my shift, I went to Harrison Plaza to meet my mom there. She handed me some extra food from her trip to Subic which was quite heavy. I got home at 8:30am and checked on my wife while she's still sleeping. I got to watch WWE's Elimination Chamber as well as NBA's All-Star Game 2011 while flipping the remote from one channel to the other.I was able to get some sleep at 12:45pm only to get up at 6:45pm due to a power outage at our place. Since we didn't have electricity that time, I felt hot not because of the weather but lack of it. Even if there's no electricity, I was able to prepare myself for work and while my wife and I were having dinner, electricity was restored. That made me more comfortable knowing everyone at home will have a nice good sleep tonight. I got in the office an hour later and I know I'll be alone for the rest of the shift.

Tuesday: Work was quite ok since I got one call during the US team's lunch hours. I got to do some stuff online and offline though I feel time flies so fast when you're having fun. I got two more calls after US hours. One was an easy call, the next was a challenging one. So challenging that I had to stay in the office until 8:15am before finally calling it a day. I went home very hungry so I grabbed a bite at Tropical Hut and got their clubhouse sandwich. My wife was already awake when I got home. I put my things in our room before going online for a few more minutes while my wife was getting ready for work. After taking my wife to the LRT for work, I watched tv instead of going online just to have a different perspective on what will I see. I went up to bed at 11:30am and got up at 7:45pm feeling a bit restless but ready for work. I took the Crossing-Ayala route to make sure that I would be able to get there on time and I got there 10-15 mins. before my shift started. 

Wednesday: Phones were busy on my end as the US team was having their lunch. I got two outages but logged only one because the other caller gave me an incomplete information about it. I felt too busy with handling emails that I felt dizzy for a while.I got another call before my shift ended but I was able to fix it so I am ok. I went home right away after my shift but I had to grab a banana and milo-to-go at 7-11 along Shaw Blvd. I got home an hour later and I was able to relax and enjoy my day.I was able to go online but I limited my time until my wife was ready for work. After taking my wife to the LRT, I simply watched TV and discovered the art of Silat from Malaysia. I got up to bed at past 12:00pm and got up at 7:45pm. I took the Crossing-Ayala route but I got late by 7 minutes. Good thing my colleague was there already taking care of the team while I'm setting-up my workstation. 

Thursday: Work was quite ok though at the end of our shift we almost got screwed. We learned from that point and we will make sure that we will be more careful XD. After our shift, we went home on separate ways. I had to stop by to the nearest 7-11 to take-out some snacks with me before going home. I was able to go online for a few minutes before taking my wife to her LRT ride. Then I watch some TV before going upstairs an get my 7-hour sleep. Then I remembered that I have to look for my missing January FHM 2011 magazine that appeared to be placed below piles of magazines that I got. I browsed it again for a while before finally going to sleep. I got up at 7:00pm all of a sudden with my left leg cramping. I almost shouted in pain but I was able to control it. It took me 30-45 minutes before I could recover and finally stand up and got myself ready for work. I got late by 7 minutes again but my colleague was already there so I was able to set-up my workstation for work and for play XD. Our OIC called again and he was alarmed with the re-opening of the two outages we had in Canada but apparently it was already been resolved after a while.

Friday: Work was a bit loaded but we were able to manage on our own plus both of us learned a lot from this day. After their lunch, we were able to do some personal stuffs of our own plus our Helpdesk Group Chat turned the conversation over Wendy's Hamburger XD. Good thing the first hour after their work was quiet so we were able to enjoy our last hour before finally going home. I took a cab going home hoping I could get some sleep for at least 4-5 hours but I was unable to do it because my wife was sleeping soundly and I didn't want to wake her up. I just went online downstairs and waited for her to get ready for work. I told her I'll be at SM North Edsa today to attend Inquirer's 25th Anniversary Exhibit (which coincides with EDSA 1's 25th anniversary as well). After I took my wife to the LRT, I got myself ready in my street clothes to go the exhibit sponsored by Inquirer. I left home at 11:45am not sure whether I could be at my 100% or not. When I got to SM North Edsa, I looked for the venue and I was quite ok. It took me an hour and a half to take pictures of some of their memorabilia. As my stomach got rumbling, I went to Sakae Sushi to satisfy my craving for Japanese food but they didn't have more than enough red plates so I just settled for a few of them. Part of my day there was to look for some things that I need but unfortunately, I wasn't able to find it at their supermarket so I decided to go home. As I passed by The Block, I saw another exhibit about The Inauguration of President Benigno (Noynoy) Aquino III. I wanted to take snaps of the posters but I'd rather not since there were security guards roaming that may cause commotion. One thing I discovered there was their FX Terminal that is bound for Quiapo. I took the fx home and got there after an hour. I was so tired I slept at 4:00pm. My wife woke me up at around 9:30pm just in time to watch TV as well as have dinner. Then I went to bet to get some more sleep at 11:30pm.

Saturday: I got up at 4:00am but my eyes and mind were open as early as 3:00am. I just went online until 7:30am to do some catching up on personal stuff. Then I woke my wife up since we will be going to the hospital again to have her 2nd round of 3D/4D ultrasound session at The Medical City hoping our baby would cooperate this time XD. At first, the baby wasn't cooperating so the doctor there told us to get back after an hour or so. We had our lunch at Mary Grace at Rockwell Center. Too bad I didn't bring my camera with me to take pictures there. The ambiance there was so relaxing and so homey I almost fell asleep right then and there. Then we went back to Medical City after an hour and a half hoping our baby would cooperate. Unfortunately, she didn't face the camera for her session. The doctor advised my wife again to walk for 30 more minutes just to make sure the baby would change position. We almost toured the entire hospital hoping that our baby would cooperate. After the third attempt, we were advised to go back on her next check-up since our baby was really uncooperative. I'm thinking if its me or my wife or us both that our baby got her stubbornness XD. We went to SM Megamall via taxi cab after staying for more than 5 hours there. We looked or some baby stuff for us to compare costs as we will be going to Avenida in Sta Cruz sometime soon. Some of the baby's essentials were on the expensive side as we know that most of the things there were branded. After looking, we went to CBTL to relax and unwind (as well as use my coupon for February). I got the English Breakfast Latte (which I like) while my wife had the Moroccan Mint Latte (which she liked) as we shared a slice of Blueberry Cheese Cake. I bought two more magazines for February (UNO and Rogue) before finally heading home. Our day was really tiring but all well worth it.
