Weekend Chuva

These past few weeks have been so stressful for me. Sobrang ang daming kailangang gawin, maraming energy ang kailangan ibuhos at kailangan ng bonggang pag-ibig para mafullfill ang mission. But last night, naubos ako. Yung pagkaubos na gusto mo muna mag.black-out kasi wala kang maibigay (kahit gusto mong magbigay pa). Yung gantong stress level ko kinakailangan ko na ng break from everything but it cannot be dahil sa kailangan ako ngayon ng mundo level (lols).

So upang mapuno muli ang love tank I need to distress myself because sa totoo lang medj gusto ko sumakay ng bus at tumakas muna papalayo. Ilang linggo narin akong walang weekend, no alone time, no time to reflect etc. Ito ang mga bagay na ginawa ko this weekend that helped me de-stress myself.

NAIL SPA- My nails need pampering too, and because the last time I did some TLC for my nails was like last month, I super love my freshly painted nails. Blooming daw nails ko kaya lang haggardo verzosa ang fes. hahaha

MASSAGE – My whole body is aching after all the flights, travels, pagbubuhat ng boxes of donations and it screamed massage every time I wake up in the morning. I went to Nuat Thai along Katipunan for a 2-hour Swedish massage + ventosa. I added extra 30minutes to focus on my feet cos it hurts too much I don’t want to move.

SHOPPING- Aside from the fact that shopping is a good stress reliever, I also don’t have clean clothes left. I have one month’s worth of laundry, and I am either too tired or too busy to go to Quick Clean to do my laundry. Soo for me to survive in the next few days habang basa pa mga damit ko na pinalabhan ko, I bought six new shirts, one pants and two leggings. Heaven ang amoy ng bagong damit.

MOVIES- I miss watching chill movies alone, so after buying new clothes, I checked out Cineplex for any chill movie that I might like. I don’t want to think; I just want to laugh, so I opted to watch Despicable ME 3. Okay naman sya, napatawa naman ako Atleast hindi na villain si Gru at kahit may temptations he still chose to be good.

EAT – And because I woke up at 3 pm today, meaning I skipped lunch breakfast, lunch and two snacks, I ordered a Supreme Pepper rice from Pepper Lunch ( Upsize). It’s my new favorite comfort food! : )

— Side Story–

After doing all these things, I went to the taxi stand sa gateway. May mga nauna sa akin, pero ayaw nilang sakyan yung taxi na nakapila kasi mej bulok na ang taxi at matanda din ang driver, I asked them if sasakay sila, sabi nila hindi so sumakay ako.

Naawa ako kay Tatay, may dsiscriminasyong naganap. Ngunti natutuwa ako at naalala ko sa kanya ang lolo ko, feeling ko kasama ko ang lolo ko. Matanda na sya ngunit nagtatrabaho parin sya para sa pamilya nya. I started talking to him during our travel ( medjo careful si tatay magdrive) at chinika ko ang buhay nya.

Siya si Tatay Lando with plate number TYK104 nang SEAPEARL TAXI. Isang taon palang syang taxi driver, dati syang family driver ngunit dahil palipat-lipat ng trabaho hindi nya nabayaran ng maayos ang SSS nya. Sabi nya may dalawa syang anak pero may mga asawa na at hindi nakatira sa kanya. Kasama nalang nya ang kanyang asawa at dalawang apo. Isang libong piso ang boundary ng taxing dala nya ( kung titingnan sa hitsura dapat 700 nalang yun) at kumikita sya ng 300 to 500 a day at kung suswertehen ay aabot ng isang libo ( pero sobrang once in a blue moon daw).

Ang sabi pa nya, mahirap na kumita ngayon lalo na humihina na ang taxi dahil sa uber at grab pero tuloy parin daw sya para sa asawa at mga apo niya. Tinanong ko sya kung uuwi na ba sya, sabi nya hindi pa daw dahil wala pa syang take home. Alas otso na nang gabi at nagsimula syang bumyahe nang alas syete wala parin syang kita.

Pag-baba ko inabutan ko si Tatay nang sobra sa bayad kong PHP 89.00, and  I told him na umuwi na para makapagpahinga. Fathers Day ngayon kaya binati ko din sya. Nakita kong sobrang tuwa nya at nagpasalamat sya. Hindi sya umalis hanggat hindi ako nakapasok ng gate. It felt good, to be able to make someone smile. It felt good and now my love tank is filled.  Kahit hindi ko nakasama ang aking mga ama sa araw na ito, masaya ako na may isang ama akong napasaya. Sana nakauwi syang maayos tonight.

Napaisip din ako, sana may gumawa din ng kabutihan sa mga tatay ko habang nagtatrabaho sila. Sana mapuno nang kabutihan at pag-ibig ang mundo.
