The end of July is fast approaching and I am behind with my posts. I should have written down the thoughts in my head. I try not to dwell on the should’ve, would’ve , could’ve so here I am trying to write a decent post.
The highlight of my June was the Coron trip. I am grateful for friends who made the trip more memorable. We all had fun. Some of them met for the first time in this trip but left the place as friends.
While in Manila, I met other friends, too. These are my high school classmates.
And these are my elementary friends. Technically, only two of them are. Mitzi became my friend way after college but she was already friends with Shirly and Wilbert. Gail is a friend from high school. I like introducing my friends to my other friends.
In June, I fulfilled my longtime wish… to visit the Rizal Monument in Luneta! I had to have my picture taken at this angle to avoid showing the Torre de Manila in the background.
I got gifts from friends. How awesome are my friends? Grace sent me workout clothes and some cute stuff.
I got layers of leche flan from Erns and egg pies from Teram. Yes, I love anything custard.
I made homemade halo-halo and healthy ice cream. The other colorful candies in the glass are just for the photoshoot.
I did some fun art stuff. This is a random art stuff which I did not use pencil. I started with watercolor and just added colors upon colors.
I sent mail exchanges for the Flourish Forum friends.
Because of all the fun things I did last June, I cannot remember working. I think it is a good thing when work does not feel like work at all.
What a colorful month of June you had.. exciting life and such great experiences and freebies… can i get some? good luck in the coming months and let us know of those little things you ve done so far..
It’s bliss when work doesn’t feel like work. It’s always gonna give you this super good feeling and it’ll motivate you to be better each time … am glad & happy to know that things are going well for you 🙂
Such a fun June for you. I agree with the Coron Trip as the highlight. Just by looking at those amazingly taken photos, it seems like all of you enjoyed the trip 🙂
I love the sound of homemade halo-halo and healthy ice cream. And those artwork you created, simply beautiful. I’m happy to read that you have had a good month in June 🙂
Love the workout outfit! I’m also into calligraphy now, but I’m sooooo not good at it, ahhahaha
Everyone has 24hours each day, but some how I always don’t utilize it to the maximum! People say I give myself loads of stress but I use that as motivation!
So great that your June was filled with a lot of fun and love! Here’s to more amazing months to come! 😀
sounds like a great june! youve had a great few reunions
Funny how you said at the end that the month went by so fun you forgot that you were also working. Is that not the reason why we blog? We want to live a life outside a work, to destress ourselves. 🙂
I love when you say work doesn’t feel like work at all. I wish that’s how I feel too about my job. hehehe
What a beautiful and colourful month of June. God bless you ! Loved your sketch and that halo halo is sweet.
I always enjoy reading your monthly round up babe – in part because it always get me doing a little round up of mine in my head too. Always so much to be thankful for. Thanks for the little reminder as we move into the new month 🙂
Indeed, June brought you lots experiences to treasure. At last na fulfill na rin your long dream to visit Luneta..
Great to know that you are enjoying every moment in Jun. By the way, can you share the recipe of the homemade halo-halo and healthy ice cream please. Thanks
Healthy ice cream: blend frozen banana and freeze again.
Halo-halo: freeze a mixture of cream, condensed milk, evaporated milk and one cup water. Shave the frozen mixture using a fork. Fill tall glass with shaved mixture. Top it with sweet corn kernels, colored sago (tapioca pearls), kaong, ube jam, leche flan and cornflakes.
You had a busy June. It’s nice that you were able to reconnect with your classmates. I love your calligraphy work!
It’s so cool that you’ve been in Coron. I was also able to visit Coron a few years ago and I really love the rich marine life there.
So cool ! your calligraphy is stunning! I’m in the process of learning as well ..
I agree with you when working is doesn’t feel like working because of the fun around. Friends will always be fun to be with when working.
I love your artworks, Kat. It always inspired me to do some arts too. 😉
Thanks! Go for it!
Everyone was doing that angle to avoid Torre de Manila in the background. I would do exactly the same. The egg pie looks yummers. I like your artwork sis. I just hope I knew someone like you who would volunteer to DIY my wedding invites. I am so stressed right now! Haha.
