The Belly Dancing Experience

Surpirse, surprise! I finally took belly dancing at the gym. Me - who has two left feet, had tantrums during cotillion practice, never-ever joined any other dance class, have muscles in all the wrong places, zero-interest in anything that requires poise and grace and who thinks dancing is boring!
I don't really know what made me join, I had way too much apprehensions such as: a. What if the girls were all snooty?
b. I don't have kikay dancing clothes, just soccer jerseys and shorts..what to wear???!
c. What if the instructor was some skinny freak who lacks patience in teaching dance dummies like me?
d. What if the girls are already so damn good at it, I'd look stupid and be laughed at?

Third Wheeling in Baguio

About two months ago, on a last minute decision, I decided to go with my officemate and her boyfriend to Baguio. (Talk about third wheel!) We went there Friday afternoon after work. Her boyfriend doesn't like long driving so we took the 5PM bus trip from Victory Liner, Cubao. The ticket costs 380 pesos - one way. Baguio's one of my favorite destinations, because of it's cool, calming weather. I swear, I'm meant to live like a Polar bear. Cold weather makes me happy even if I don't have anyone to cuddle with. I haven't been there in four years and I terribly missed the place, the strawberries, cheap food, cheap pasalubong, cheap veggies and most of all - cheap silver.

We stayed in Ruth's boyfriend's parents' place so we also got free food which made our weekend more amazing because we can spend more on shopping goodies. I got home armed with silver earrings for some of my officemates, peanut butter for my family and some other food, strawberry wine …
