Car's Preventive Maintenance

Already made an appointment today for the preventive maintenance for my Honda HR-V.  Edgar already brought the car earlier at Honda Makati.  He is going to pick me up so I can pay for the service and he just have to get the car when it is ready.

Bought a simple gift for my service advisor.  Hopes he likes. it.

Rapit Antigen Test

Today, I took again the Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) being arranged by our office.  Thank,  God!  I am negative.

Starting today, everything will be different because of what happened yesterday and the decision I made.  Will there be instant karma to them?  I'll just hold on to Him for God is bigger!

Christmas Gifts Shopping

 It is a holiday.  Plan to tick-off more items in my Christmas list.

First stop is The Landmark.  Will buy a gift for the security guard assigned to our Zamora parking lot.  He is also an electrician and can repair items.  Whenever our electric fan needs fixing, Edgar, the driver, brings it to him for repair.

Next stop is Stradivarius.  Was able to buy gifts for my nieces.

Then, to Uniqlo where I was able to buy a gift for a nephew.

Passed by True Value to buy the talking ball for my niece's dog, Theo.  Went to San Srival at Food Choices to buy the first batch of gifts for the office.  Paid for them and it will be picked-up by Edgar tomorrow.

Went back to "The Landmark" to buy gifts for the two grandchildren by my cousin's side (at Greenheights Subdivision).  We stayed at my aunt's house there when our house in Pasay has been gutted by fire.  Also went to the The Landmark Supermarket to buy imported chocolates as Christmas gifts.

Finally, went to Conti's to order our food for Christmas Eve.  Will pick it up on the 24th around 10AM.

December 8, a Tuesday, is also a holiday.  I will be taking my leave on December 7.  Since most of my to-do's for Christmas is almost complete, that will be a very long weekend rest for me.  😀

Playing Santa

Took a vacation leave today (it is a holiday on Monday).  Supposed to use ten of my fifteen vacation leaves per year; else, it will be forfeited.

My to-do list:

  • Pay next year's realty property tax of my Makati condominium unit.  Usually do it on the last working day of the year; but, decided to do it today to avoid many people doing their payment, too.  I was really fast!
  • Give my Christmas gift to Norly.  Already got her address and mobile number.  It took us a lot of time as we were not able to find her house easily.  The problem?  We are having a hard time understanding her direction over the mobile phone.  She finally passed her phone to someone else who as able to give a clearer direction.  One of my gifts include a personal air purifier, hoping that it would help her against #COVID19 disease  (aside from face mask/ covering, physical distancing and frequent hand washing).
  • Give my Christmas gift to Manong.  We were not able to catch him but left my gift (plus pasalubong of Jollibee Chickenjoy meal with french fries) to his relative.  He, too, has the personal air purifier.
  • Check the food I plan to give as a Christmas gift to the office.  Went to Glorietta for this.  It is still not available.  Was advised it will only be available on December.
The problem with taking a leave and have ordered online using the office as delivery address, you have to go to the office to pick it up.  Before going to Makati City Hall, picked up two of my three orders.  After paying the realty tax, went again to the office to pick up the third item of my orders.

After giving the gift to Norly, since it is already past lunch time, went to Jollibee's drive thru to buy food to-go for Edgar (the driver) and Manong.

The third of the three items I purchased is a Razer Seiren Mini microphone.  This is the first test video (podcast) I made using said microphone:

Halloween (2018)

 Post-Holloween movie?  Watched "Halloween (2018)". a reboot and sequel of the original "Halloween".

Laurie Strode (actress Jamie Lee Curtis) is still traumatized from the Halloween night 40 years ago when Michael Myers came home.  Thus, she lived as a recluse in a heavily fortified house.  Unfortunately, Michael breaks out of the asylum on a Halloween night.  And the story goes...

Expect gore; but, at least, not just to use for scare.  Still, the question is unanswered.  Why is Michael after Laurie?

3Below: Tales Of Arcadia

Just finished the two seasons of the second of the "Tales of Arcadia" trilogy--3Below:  Tales of Arcadia.  It is about two royal extraterrestrial siblings, Princess Aja and Prince Krel of the House of Tarron.  They have to flee their home, Akiridion-5, and crash-landed on Earth.  With them is their bodyguard, Varvatos Vex, and dog-like pet, Luug.

They have to assimilate with the people in Arcadia while they are trying to fix their spaceship to return and take back their home planet.  The evil dictator General Val Morando hired bounty hunters to find and catch the royals.  With their new human (and troll) friends, they were able to defeat Morando and his army.


Now, onto the third of the trilogy...
