the holidays are over

I can't seem to shake off the holiday laziness.

My wish is that someday, i never have to work as hard to enjoy the good life.

The last couple of months have been good, vacation-wise.

1. I "lived" in Baguio for a week. I need a home somewhere up there. I loved the fresh food, golf, and how everything was walkable.

I always woke up to fresh strawberry juice.




I took long walks, enjoyed the views, breathed fresh air.




2. And then there was Nueva Ecija for another two weeks.
Admittedly, I went only because I was too embarrassed to say "no" to MSP's family. There was nothing to see; it was just another province complete with carabaos and bad cable TV. But the holidays were just a bit more fun in that part of Luzon because of the BIG reunion.

I am an only child and my family is terrible at being a family, so I've never been to a clan party. It was new and kinda amusing.




When we're not in MSP's family's residence or resort, we would be in the "irrigation" river area, where we could sit on the benches for free, enjoy the cool wind, and eat mongo ice drops (six pesos each).



MSP's other tito also owns a riverfront property. It was nice there as well.





Le sigh.

I miss the slow life.

The only consolation is that next month, I'm off with the illuminati to Palawan. That should be a blast.

I can hardly remember the days when life was still slow.
