Cat versus Toilet Paper

What is it with cats and toilet paper?


Hair Salon Makati

I am on a quest to find the best affordable hair salon in Manila.

So far I am satisfied with Tony & Jacky, a Korean hair salon along Buendia, Makati.

What I enjoy about Tony and Jacky hair salon are its modern style with digital mirrors, digital hair steam and other modern hair treatment machines. Staff are friendly, professional and provides good service.  Sometimes it can be overwhelming as you get attended by 3 staff at the same time. A special service at Tony and Jacky is that all hair stylists are Koreans! They may speak little English nonetheless they are professional and friendly.

The price for haircut ranges from 300-500 Php. I am most satisfied with their hair treatments. The hair rebonding which costs around 5,000 Php for long hair can last for a year. It is quite pricey but can actual save you money as you only have your hair treatment once a year. As long as you do not forget to regularly condition your hair the rebond treatment can do you good for the whole year.


Home is where the heart is

Definitely now I know what this statement means. Home is where I feel comfortable, loved, and secure. It is where I seek refuge when I want to escape cruelty of the world.

I am at my dad’s house for the holiday. Same house where I grew up in. It brings back sad and happy memories. It does not feel the same anymore. I do not feel at home at the house I grew up in. The only reason that I go here is to visit my dad.

I want to go back home with love, where my heart is….

Daddy care

When I was young my mom used to prepare me good food and make me a hot bath whenever I was sick. Now, as I’m not as young and mom gone, dad’s way of taking care of sick me was to buy me 1 month supply of medicine and bring me shopping. Either way both made me feel better. đŸ™‚

Sick and alone

Its because when you are in pain you become angry at the people closest to you for not feeling the same pain. They can not exactly feel what you are going through. And will not because you do not share the same body and soul. In absolute reality there is nothing that they can do. Being sick is a personal struggle that one has to endure alone.

However, emotional support from the peolpe closest to you is crucial to keep the spirit alive and hopeful to live.


A woman’s self care

Today I had my first complete breast care examination.

Since my grandmother died of breast cancer 23 years ago I have been paranoid on getting terminal illness. It was a time that the whole family were giving so much time to take care of my grandmother and during that time I did not fully understand why.

Breast cancer took my grandmother away.

Breast cancer took my mother away.

I have fear of going thru the same as they did.

Today my fears were calmed. I had my first breast care examination.

Mammogram was not really as painful as I thought. I was imagining it as more painful. Actually it was tolerable.

Actually thank God for mammogram.

Because if the examination would only be based on the breast sonogram and elastosy (?). I would have been masectomized leaving me with me nothing.

What they saw was benign.

Which I think is good.

Actually I still need to see a doctor tomorrow to know the whole story and be officially cleared.

But hey its benign and it sounds ok for me.
