(another personal post)
i just realized that i should get my ass off the computer (for a while) and cherish the last few days i have here in SH!
it just sink in to me that I'll be leaving soon.. and instead of enjoying it with the people i've spent my one-year stay with, i am (sadly) acting pretty lazy and staying IN (on a friday night) when i should be drinking / partying and getting crazy!
and its sad because, some of the people here (mostly from work) - i might not be able to see again :( and they all have been good to me... and i already wasted quite a few opportunities of getting to know them more :( but i hope i'm not too late to share my gratitude to them.
for those who skipped the part of that entry - i resigned from my work a few weeks ago, and i'm going back to manila soon. my boss offered to increase my salary, a promotion, etc... but really, it's not about that. and i might be eating my words now cos i usually love the phrase, "whoever said money can't buy happiness obviously doesn't know where to shop" - but weekly shopping sprees and brand new Gucci's doesn't really give me true happiness. and i really don't want to stay any longer cos i might actually forget myself, and be consumed by the temporary & luxuriating world i have now. yes, i am cheesy. ilove my friends and my family, and i'd rather lose my high salary than lose the people who made me to who i am today. thankfully my parents still love me, and i wish my dad won't confiscate my extension ccard soon ~hehe.
THE TIME THAT WAS
huai hai road (my fave shopping place)
yes, fashionista's are everywhere here! *evil me*
would you believe that it never snowed in shanghai for more than 10yrs?
but the snow made a whole lot difference! and it was my first! :)
during my first months at yuyuan garden
my savior and first friend :) she moved to macau last may :(
@ tai kang st. - artsy fartsy, expat place.
obviously gonna miss winter (really?) & the added pounds in me that goes with it
college friends in manila (studying in beijing) visited, and we partied on a snow-storm weekend!
nobody can stop us! sadly, the best bars only consisted of 50-80 people that night - did i just mentioned the snow storm?
came and conquered attica!
