Happy New Year everybody!
I am greeting you from our new place somewhere here in Karama, Dubai. Yeap, we just cannot leave this place and move somewhere else… This has been home for about 3 years now and we are looking forward for another year of staying in this place whilst we transition from moving to our new home – The Philippines!!!!!
So, since we have just moved, I am using our neighbor’s unsecured internet connection (Thanks neighbor!!) and hopefully, the uber nice and sweet technician will arrive in our doorstep in time to hook us up with Etisalat’s latest baby – eLife!!! We will get the perks of having internet (8mbps), television (hello Fox movies) and landline ( err… ).
So I guess that will be it for now because the neighbor might notice I’m using his connection and decides to cut us off :p
Till my next post!! 🙂
I have been away from my family for about seven years now. I just spend a month or three weeks with them and then I’m back here in Dubai. Usually what happens in those days that I’m home, everyone would try to sit me down and tell me what has been going on with their life… which could vary – major achievements to the little things as well.
Those times wherein we would do that – priceless.
I love going back to memory lane… I think it gives you this feeling that you have gone a long way… though of course, some still stay the same.
About eight months ago, we were all in different places – I guess I can say that for my sister and me, physically and the rest of the family, in another aspect.
My sister stayed in Singapore doing her intern for one of the hotels there. She completed her six-month internship last June.
According to Robert, our relationship as a family is very different from what he’s used to. We were each other’s support system, cheerleaders and more.
Of course, we still resort to seeking our friend’s advise (especially for sensitive matters – like love :p) but we always end up getting each other’s opinions.
This kind of relationship was on-off, for me. Being away most of the time, I only get to ‘switch on’ my support-cheerleader aura when I’m home however I now get to ‘switch on’ thanks to the World Wide Web and Yahoo Messenger.
I guess even if you are far away from them as long as you have the means to communicate…anything is possible.
This game has been keeping me up for the past few weeknights and weekends!
I thought I already figured out how to play it but ended up not topping out my previous high score!
Facebook is really addicting because of these applications available in their website – which actually make you not want to leave… not only that, they are still trying to come up with some more (stop it please!!).
You get to post your status, chat with your friend, poke your friend and challenge him / her to play Bejeweled Blitz! How cool is that?!
I need to sleep now. :=(
I got another addiction to add to my list:- I’m an internet addict.
As soon as I reach home, I take out our lappy out of the bag, set the desk up, open the lappy and surf the night away.
This could be a good habit if …. Robert is not with me 😦
I am actually glad that he does not complain about me being always on the computer but I do feel really guilty about it… because instead of spending some R&R with him… I am spending it with our lappy! 😦
mmm… but I have a plan 😉
I plan to look for more ways to earn money in the net and turn this addiction to a profitable one. Hopefully, I can do that (as that was the reason I bought a lappy for us!).
