Update On My Manila Vacation And A Tag From Tony

by - Thursday, January 21, 2010

After the tedious and very stressful more than a week search for Stockholm-Manila-Stockholm flights, I am so glad that this morning, everything has been sorted out. Just some tiny more details to attend to and a few concerns to fix and I'm already on my way to Manila for a one month vacation with Madde (my boyfriend's little sister) and her boyfriend. I can now continue my Thursday with less emotional and mental strains.

Now that the situation's under control, I can spend a little time responding to another tag which has been passed on to me by my new found friend Tony of Artisan of the Human Spirit. I've met Tony through one of Facebook's apps, NetworkedBlogs. Through this app, I've followed his blog and he's followed mine. The friendship has blossomed from that point which is something cool, I guess. If you have time, visit Tony's blog. You'll find a lot of interesting posts in there. (Revelation: My itsy-bitsy brain couldn't figure out the meaning of artisan which was why I asked dictionary.com for help. Good thing that the online dictionary did not let me down. Oh my! *embarrassed*)
So back to the tag: Happy 101

* I am to list ten things that make me happy, and to share the award with ten blogs I like. So here it goes:
1.) One thing that really makes me happy is knowing that others (especially the people who matter most to me) are happy. There's no better feeling than that.

2.) Traveling with Bebe (although I will not be spending the Philippine vacation with him this time due to his work)

3.) Learning a new language is something I've never thought I'll be passionate about. Since my boyfriend and I enjoy the idea of going around the world one day, knowing different languages will surely come in handy.

4.) Baking eases away my stress.

5.) Watching movies at home with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of cold Coke. *simple pleasures*

6.) Being mentioned in BWE and being tagged by my blogger friends although I usually have difficulties responding on their tags (sorry about that but I know my friends understand that at times my schedule really gets too overloaded with school matters).

7.) Meeting new friends both online (blogging, Facebook, etc) and offline.

8.) Getting reunited with long lost friends - such a wonderful experience.

9.) Updating my blogs whenever possible.

10.) Just having a wonderful day like today makes me so happy.

The ten friends I am going to tag are:


Quoted from Tony: "(This list is not in any certain order)
I know some do not "do" awards, if not I apologize. Just know I still wanted to give you the nod!"

Have a great day my friends!!! Hugs!

    Great ten answers for this, and it's funny you actually tagged me twice in the entry when you mentioned BWE.

Only kidding to those who read this! :-D :-D
