I’ve been gone for quite some time and was unable to update my blog. There are several reasons for that – first, I attended a United Nations-sponsored training. Second, it’s enrollment week again. Or rather the first week of classes, but I’m not even done with processing my classes yet. Oh no! And third, I’ve been spending lots of time with friends, family, and my boyfriend. Of course, throw work into that mix and you’ve gone one very busy girl – me.
But I’m determined to stick to that posting schedule I devised. I’m going to write my posts ahead of time (like this one) so I won’t fall behind schedule! 😀
I attended the National Training of Trainers on UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) Community-Based Treatment and Care Services for People Who Use Drugs in Southeast Asia. This was a four-day comprehensive training, and it was very helpful and enlightening. I went with my colleague to represent our office, and we were the youngest participants there.
I had a date with my boyfriend this weekend! We were planning to go to a petting zoo because we love animals, especially those who live in farms like cows, goats, chickens, etc. Unfortunately, due to some driver issues, we were unable to go. But it didn’t matter, there’s always next time and the important thing was we got to spend time together.
Here are some pictures! We went to Moonleaf for bubble tea because it used to be our hang-out spot all those years ago. It was the first time I’ve been able to visit in a year!
I wasn’t able to bring my reusable cup and straw, but at least I know they recycle their cups. First day I got passion fruit tea and JM got hazelnut chocolate milk tea, the next day I chose charcoal lemonade while he got the house blend milk tea. 🙂
Some random pics from this weekend which include our matching hamster bag keychains (mine is brown and his is grey), the koi from Nuvali’s man-made lake, my Vans, and the new seasonal Starbucks drinks. JM made fun of mine and called it a kiddie drink. It’s actually a peppermint mocha frappuccino with green tea whipped cream and Christmas sprinkles!
My boyfriend bought me a sunflower! ❤ He is so sweet.
All in all, it was still a good weekend. We’ll definitely be seeing animals on our next date, though – at the zoo or the ocean park or another petting zoo, I don’t care as long as he’s there and there are cute animal friends as well. 😛
I hope you guys enjoyed these bits and pieces of my everyday life! We’re back to our regular schedule, so don’t forget to check in tomorrow for the next post.
Have a great day, and thanks for dropping by! 😀
