I've been watching reruns of Gossip Girl for  the last 5 days.

I told myself that on my 35th birthday (or 40th) I wish to fly business class to New York and stay in a 5 star hotel, preferably within the upper east side. 

I want to feel rich, posh and glamorous.

Then it occurred to me that before I quit my job and got married, that was how I travelled for work. I always flew business class via Singapore Airlines and I always stayed in nice hotels.

I felt a pang of sadness at how my life changed so significantly.

Nowadays I mostly wear pambahay and I spend my past time doing my laundry. 

My husband got me an Hermes bag for my birthday. I am truly grateful.  Then, I realized I don't have anywhere to go.

So the bag now slumbers like Sleeping Beauty in my cabinet. 

Perhaps, I'll wake her up and bring her with me when I go to New York, some time in the near future.

How about you, any fantasies?




  1. Happy happy birthday (belated?)achi L!!! I felt sad after reading your entry about your in laws discovering your blog. Thought you wouldn't write anymore. I guess it's also a wake-up call for them hehe.
