Getting Work Done (Day 31 #100HappyDays)

One of the best feelings when it comes to work would have to be the satisfaction of getting all your tasks done earlier than expected. I love being productive at work, and for some people who work at home like I do, this might be a struggle. I’m not perfect, but the thought of logging out early and not worrying about anything else after my shift ends is something that pushes me to not slack off. πŸ™‚

No substitute for hard work

Next week is our planned vacation, so this means I’ve been pretty busy preparing to get everything prepared, especially because I need to submit reports and important documents for the following week as early as Wednesday next week, before I take my leave. Gaahhhh! πŸ˜€ Thankfully, looks like I’ll be finished earlier than expected. πŸ™‚

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (Day 30 #100HappyDays)

I finally finished all episodes of the only season of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. I’m a HUGE fan of the original series – Once Upon a Time – and this one’s the spin-off, so I decided to download and watch everything too. I have to admit, I initially didn’t like WonderlandΒ because of the bad acting at first and the storyline, but after 8 episodes, I was hooked! πŸ˜‰

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

To give you a brief background on OUAT, it’s a twisted take on the fairytales we all heard when we were kids. That’s all I have to say since you have to watch to completely understand the charm of the series. πŸ™‚

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland characters

Anyway, back to Wonderland, at first, I didn’t like the Red Queen and Alice. Eventually, though, I learned to accept the Red Queen. πŸ˜€ Alice, hmmm… I’m torn. I’m not particularly familiar with the story of Alice in Wonderland, but I know she’s crazy. Hahahah. Anyway, I’m excited to see Knave of Hearts in the original series Once Upon a Time, in Storybrooke. I hope he’ll be a fun addition to the series. πŸ™‚

Game of Thrones + Something Personal (Day 29 #100HappyDays)

It’s been delayed for months now, and I’m glad it’s back. I hope things will normalize now and get back to it’s monthly schedule again. And, no, this is the personal part of my entry today. If you have no clue what I’m referring to, please, just move on to my GoT entry below. πŸ˜›

Finally, after months of waiting, Game of Thrones is back!! I LOVE this series! Sure, there are times when I don’t understand what’s happening or I get confused by the longggggg list of characters, but I enjoy watching every episode. I already have the books lined up on my Kindle so I can read them before I watch the series from season 1 again.

Game of Thrones

Glad our internet connection was cooperating and it took me less than 30 minutes to download the whole episode at full speed. Yay!

My bro is also addicted to the series, and he’s encouraging me to finish the books. I just need to finish Lean In and Eat, Pray, Love, then I’ll move on to the Game of Thrones books. πŸ™‚

I’ll leave you with this video I found: an honest trailer for Game of Thrones. Pretty much summed up what most people think of the show. Hahaha πŸ˜€

Cleaning Up My Room (Day 28 #100HappyDays)

I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of cleaning. It’s not really laziness, but mostly because I developed some sort of allergy to dust. So, I either ask our house help to do it for me or I take my time cleaning.

After months of postponing a general clean-up of my room, I finally did it today! Well, okay, not really a complete clean-up, but I managed to organize my vanity table and the area where my printer/scanner/photocopier is located.Β After our upcoming vacation, I’m planning on cleaning up my entire room.

My vanity table

Yeah, most of the clutter are now inside the drawers hahaha πŸ˜›

I actually prefer to do my own cleaning because I’m more meticulous when it comes to ensuring every corner is dusted and cleaned. I sometimes get too OC that I even use an alcohol-soaked tissue, cotton or rug to finish my clean-up. Well, at least that’s what I do with my vanity table, my laptop and desktop’s keyboard and mouse/touchpad, and my office table. πŸ˜€

I’m slightly exhausted. I’m feeling a li’l under the weather, but somehow, this made me feel better. πŸ™‚

Lunch at Viking’s SM Megamall (Day 27 #100HappyDays)

Of course, as a certified foodie, most of my #100HappyDays entries would be about food. πŸ˜€ Earlier today, we had lunch at one of our favorite buffet restaurants in the Metro – Viking’s Luxury Buffet. They recently opened their newest branch at Mega Fashion Hall at SM Megamall. Here’s a look at all the deliciousness that filled my Saturday afternoon.

These oysters were oh-so flavorful! I was too full, so I only got to eat 2. πŸ˜€
