Under The Weather

When you live by yourself, life gets tough when you fall ill. These are the days when you long for home, terribly miss Mom's encouraging words and home cooking. I have been feeling under the weather since Thursday, but I shrugged it off and went to work anyway. Now, I feel really tired and my world seems to be spinning. Today was spent lying down on my couch just coughing and sniffling. These are the days I turn to the comfort of watching movies I really enjoy. Sick days are movie marathon days. I dug into my DVD collection and so far, I've seen Rush Hour 1 and 2, Music and Lyrics, The Holiday, The Forbidden Kingdom, Big Momma's House, and now an old time favorite - While You Were Sleeping. Let me cough and sniffle, as I fill myself with a warm soup of Pork Sinigang and a cup of Chamomile tea.

Here's my favorite line from the movie, While You Were Sleeping, it gets me every time:
Do you believe in love at first sight? Nah, I betcha don't, you're probably too sensible for that. Or have you ever, like, seen somebody? And you knew that, if only that person *really* knew you, they would, well, they would of course dump the perfect model that they were with, and realize that YOU were the one that they wanted to, just, grow old with. Have you ever fallen in love with someone you haven't even talked to? Have you ever been so alone you spend the night confusing a man in a coma?

Work Rant

Yesterday, it was madness at work, as papers piled on my desk due to a deadline. I do love being busy, but not lot like yesterday. I was frantic, worried and stressed. I didn't know which project to tackle first but managed to get it all done by their respective deadlines.
Lo and behold - I am still here. Today is the absolute opposite of yesterday, and now I find myself yawning and dozing off.

I need another cup of coffee or tea, please.

Travel: Paris

After exploring London, I took the train to Paris. This is one of the highlights of my vacation. Seeing Paris has always been a dream, and finally having the chance to fulfill it made me scream with excitement. The train from London to Paris took only two hours, so it was a sweet, short ride. I know that Paris has been featured many times, but here are my favorite photos anyway. I hope everyone enjoys them.

Paris View

The River Seine

Clean and green

A view of the city

Photos one through four were all taken atop the Eiffel Tower

Notre Dame Cathedral (It was so funny because all I could think about was Quasimodo atop the bell tower.)

The Eiffel Tower through the roof of my River Seine boat cruise

Riding the tour bus through Champs Elysees

There it stood high, but finally conquered by the owner of this blog.
