Wow, I can't believe it would be possible but I have neglected this blog for almost 3 weeks. I used to blog regularly then I started to blog at least once a week. For the month of March I have been a baaaaad blogger and for that I am going to make up for it. As you already know, I took a break from work and flew to California for a one month vacay. I'm so glad the company I work for allowed me to go on a one month leave. Yey!
So anyhow, I flew halfway across the world by myself. It was the first time I have ever traveled halfway around the world alone. I met all sorts of people while waiting for my trip both to San Francisco and back to the Philippines. Traveling alone really isn't so bad. It's always fun chatting with different people and connecting for that few minutes in time.
Anyone who is on a vacay is definitely going to do a lot of sight seeing and a lot of eating. I made sure to go on a crash diet before my trip and lost 10 pounds. Yey! The word "diet" did not exist in my vocabulary for my whole vacation. I am officially back in the Philippines now and I have just stepped on the weighing scale. I have gained back 7 pounds from my trip. Booohooo. So what got me weighing 7 pounds heavier: burritos, pizza, strawberries, chocolates, buffet, Starbucks, oh and all the other yummy treats you can think of. Believe it or not, there's no Starbucks on my part of the Philippines (well not yet anyway, I heard come by May Starbucks will be opening a branch here). I went crazy over Starbuck's Cinnamon Dolce Latte. I could have that 4 times a day and still wouldn't get tired of it.
So anyhow, enough of the yadda yadda's....Here's some pictures from my trip! Have a happy weekend.
