This week, I am grateful…
For yet another Sunday worship service, where the message felt like it was written for me.
For a simple dinner date Sunday night which ended with coffee at Cafe Ti Amo. Been wanting to try it, though we were too full to get gelato, so we just enjoyed their coffee, perfect for a rainy evening.

|Still consistent with the Filipino theme, we got this book filled with fun facts about Pinoys.|
|A yoyo to celebrate Coke’s 100 years in the Philippines. It was a hit back in the 80s!|
For Gym time!
For free Big and Tasty coupon. I have not redeemed it yet but I am looking forward to trying this new offering at Mc Donald’s. I am not really a burger fan but I’ve heard good things about this.

For a free Starbucks drink. I just answered their online customer satisfaction survey and got this for free. Simple pleasures!
|Tall extra hot Chamomile Blend Tea Latte|
For happy Friday surprises. We gave our boss’ boss an advanced birthday surprise. We hid in her room and sang happy birthday when she came in. Her reaction was one for the books! Hilarious! Wish we caught it on video! Fun times!

For this week’s happy Friday lunch. I got to try a new resto again (some of my lunch buddies have tried it before), and though we are still a bit full from the surprise birthday food (see above), we still got to enjoy our lunch.

For Friday TV marathons. This is what I look forward to on Fridays. Other couple brave the Friday night traffic in Makati. Ariel and I head home as early as we can and spend a quiet night in our room, glued to the TV, munching on late night junk food. This time, I was able to buy some cheese, grapes and crackers. We already have a few bottles of red wine at home so it was wine and cheese for us tonight.

God is good all the time!
