A very personal blog

The week that was


I’m kind of enjoying documenting my week in terms of expenses. For one, I get to remember what I did the whole day haha and I can always babble about the things I spend money on because don’t we all???

Monday (Oct 29) – ₱110

○ Parking at Greenbelt 5 – ₱110

Still not completely recovered from flu. My colds has escalated to an annoying cough, a splitting headache, and now… a freaking toothache?! I’m not really surprised. Whenever I get a flu I tend to always always wheeze everything out like crazy ‘cos I can’t stand the feeling of a clogged nose. Apparently I’m killing my sinuses and for some reason the nerves are connected to my teeth, so yeah.

Work wise thank God there’s progress in this RPA workflow I’m creating. I was having a hard time dealing with this Silverlight application our finance team uses but thankfully I found a way through it. Wooh. There’s still more to this task so help me Lord!

Tuesday (Oct 30) – ₱110

○ Parking at Greenbelt 5 – ₱110

I’m done with the 2nd sequence of this frnk RPA workflow. I’m so stoked to get through this and focus on other automation test cases next. I’m looking into spending some time going through UIPath Academy to soak up on tutorials. Maybe I can try getting certified too, they offer free certification until December 31 soooooo… we’ll see!

Wednesday (Oct 31) – ₱108

○ Bus going to the office – ₱14
○ Starbucks coffee – ₱80
○ Bus going home – ₱14

My officemate gave me Starbucks GCs yesterday so I had the chance to use it today. Shared it with a colleague and we both got this customized drink that’s too strong and too sweet. If I remember correctly it’s white mocha breve something no water double shot something?! Hahaha! Too sweet!

For our baon I cooked honey garlic chicken wings with butter parmesan baby potatoes on the sides. It sucks. Remind me to stick to bbq marinade, the honey garlic we got is too… bland haha. Also, I think I undercooked the chicken it’s still frkn bloody huhu.

Thursday (Nov 1) – ₱0

Totally no expenses today ‘cos it’s the start of the long Undas weekend. Jeckie and I had plans to drive to Fairview to see my family but we backed out because we wanted to rest and just spend a whole day with each other.

We ate dinner at Kabab and Curry where we got to spend our coinbank money. We didn’t max out on our 3k budget so hooray for another date covered!

Speaking of that coinbank money, I’m not sure if I’ve already shared but at the beginning of the year we made a conscious effort to save all the 5 and 10 peso coins we have till we fill their designated cans to the brim. We were able to fill the 5 peso can last month and it totaled to ₱3,320 — that’s 10.4lbs! And instead of going to the bank to exchange them, we went to McDonald’s instead where there’s always a need for coins especially during weekends. We got the paper bills good and the store manager even gave us free BFF fries. Yay!

Friday (Nov 2) – ₱319

○ Lunch at Galleria – ₱179

○ Costa Primo Iced Coffee – ₱140

Met with the in-laws for lunch at Galleria and stayed ’til night. Our tita was checked in at Holiday Inn so we hung out for the rest of the afternoon eating and playing Undercover. It was fun, albeit super stressful. My palms were sweating the entire time that my phone can’t recognize my fingerprints! Hassle haha.
