"I am an instrument in the shape
of a WOMAN trying to translate pulsations
into images
for the relief of the body
and the reconstruction of the mind."

day two of days off

what a tiring day yesterday. all of us overslept this morning. i can still feel the jetlag. this should be gone by now.

we went to the outlet, though we were supposed to go to hollywood. i wanted to go shopping, but when i found something i liked, they didn't carry my size. everything is sooo big. they carry size 20 but not 2. ate nikki and ate margaux were with us, a good thing, since the oldies' (hehe) go shopping for styles that look too mother-ish for me.

and then dinner at steph's and kuya gio's house. i don't know what some of the food are called, but they all tasted good. really good. if i stay longer at their house i wouldn't bother looking for a size 2 the next time i go shopping. we even had a tray to go.

it's really nice to see all my cousins again--kim, ate margaux, ate nikki, kuya gio, kuya ace. we stayed and chatted so long at kuya gio's place that we all forgot the time--we got home at 11pm. it's also nice knowing that kuya ace has an interest in filipino history and the family's history. and kuya gio's ciclid reminds me of yeng the fish at stan's apartment. i really have to get an aquarium of my own.

the best part is meeting the little kids (tita corito's grandkids) for the first time. oooh. they are all pretty angels. jay jay is the dancing one. julia has so many hugs and kisses to share. sweet girl.

i don't feel literary today. buti na lang. i came here for a vacation, not for literary genius. hmm. it's a nice life. kain-tulog. i could very well do that at home, but it's nice to have a different view and see new places.

whew. it's very dry here. it's so dry that my skin is cracking and even the boogers inside my nose are dry. hehe. i miss the humidity. i can't feel my sweat anymore.
