Oh how lovely it is to just stare at the lush greens and fluffy clouds, take in the fresh smell of pine trees and feel the cool gentle breeze...

I went on a spontaneous trip to Baguio over the weekend. The goal was to unwind and not think about a single thing. Well the unwind part was successful, but not the latter. Things have been super dooper crazy lately but I'm glad I have my "rainbows" after the rain.

Before heading back to the MidEast, my second brother had to fly to Manila from Cagayan to pick up his things. My brothers and I had three days to spend together, such a rare occassion because the two of us have worked overseas for so long.

In this photo, they picked me up from work and we had dinner near my office. Since I cant remember the last time we sat down and had breakfast together, I also made sure to prepare a home-cooked meal for them. It was a nice sight to see my second brother washing dishes after meals, while our eldest wipes the table clean.

Monica's family invited me for Mother's Day dinner since I was all alone in Manila at the time. It was great to catch up and enjoy a fun conversation after a very cruel first week of May. Another friend also dropped by my workplace last week and we had coffee together. Being able to vent everything out to people who are soooo willing to listen is just the best feeling in the world.

I was looking for an instant pick-me-upper for the past days, and my favorite fries and green milk tea never fail to deliver. I had also some free time to quiet down and gather my thoughts recently at a coffee shop. I used to do this a lot in Taipei as can be seen from my posts before. Cafe relaxes me and helps me keep my calm- which I'm afraid I have been losing a lot these days.

June is just around the corner. I hope it'll be good to everyone!
