Babble Friday

It’s Friday. So what’s good?

We plus friends had a movienight/ sleepover last night. We watched Don’t Breathe and as the title goes, we literally held our breath throughout the movie. It was my day off the next day but the rest of the guys were off to work at half 7 so I was pretty much awake since 6 watching them prepare for work.

Unlike my usual day off routine (which meant staying in and do nothing), I had a full schedule today.

First Agenda: GP Appointment

I may have caught the flu a few weeks back and I have been coughing non stop ever since. I called in sick at work for 4 days, then decided to go back (thinking I could) but for obvious audible reasons, I still wasn’t well enough. I tried to keep myself together to finish my Wednesday shift but I was howling so loud they had no choice but to send me home so I won’t desterelise everything I go near to. As I am in my second week being sick, I decided to go and see the GP. Masabe lang.  

I already anticipated what would happen- A N T I B I O T I C S. But, I just wanted to reassure myself that this is not something I should be worried about. (Aside from the cough and colds, I couldn’t eat. And if I eat, I’ll just puke it all out because of the cough. So yep, not worried.) It’s just the normal flu blah blah blah. My appointment was 1120H but I left the house with 10mins. to spare. The walk from the house to the clinic was 11mins. so I was a tad late. Waited, waited then bam it was my turn! Now here is the slightly embarassing part- I do not like wearing bras. So, since I thought this is just a quick check up, why bother? Well, I should’ve cause I had no choice but to expose them babies during the chest auscultation.  Buti nalang gurlash si ateh. 

As I expected, she prescibed antibiotics. She also recommended taking my inhalers regularly since there is a chance that this is my asthma creeping in. She also recommended that I always wear a bra, charot. 

Second Agenda: Dentist 

Everything that involves a dentist here is quite expensive. So, when I had this chance for a free consultation, who am I not to avail it yeah? So far, so good. All my queries answered. Mouth examined. I was praying really hard the whole time that my throat cooperates and not cough for at least 20minutes and thank God it listened.

I had a problem with my wisdom tooth growing earlier this year which caused me pain and swelling but all is going well so far.

Third Agenda: Kilay

I admit this is peer pressure. My kilay used to be the least of my problems (or I just didn’t care lol). But in the age of “eyebrows on fleek”, I need to step up. I would describe my kilay as bushy. Back in highschool when I had my lame attempt of being kikay, my Mom tried the tweezers but I just couldn’t bear the pain! Ang shaket beh! So, I opted for the shave technique but it was such a hassle. It needed to be groomed often and I suck so bad on shaping and keeping them symmetrical. So, I just got tired and kept them the way they originally were. Then, when I moved here in England, I wanted to rekindle my relationship with them again so I tried shaving. Then I even tried waxing which worked for me for prolly a year but it was a bit expensive for my taste (£8 every 2 weeks). Just lately, I ventured into threading (which I was dreading btw coz most said it’s a pain) and it worked wonders! Hahahaha! I’m happy I tried it despite my extra emotional first time. ( I cried beh.!). I go every 3weeks or a month and it’s much cheaper than the wax.

Fourth Agenda: Moisturiser

I have never used anything on my face until I moved here in the UK. And since then, I have yet to find the perfect moisturiser that really works for me, until a month ago when I tried the Body Shop’s Vit. E sorbet facial moisturiser. 

It smells really good, and is so light on the skin. Plus, it feels so refreshing and cool when you apply it (they say you can store it in the fridge for a much cooler effect). I personally think it is borderline pricey but I’m happy with how it works on my skin so I don’t really mind. But do watch out cause TBS often has sales just like today, I was able to cop this item for only £7.


Posting this on a Saturday coz I just realized I didn’t publish it yesterday. Anyway, taaaa!
