Halloween in the air!

Yesterday, I was at the mall and relished having a Saturday free. After I finished my lunch and wiped the grin off my face (lest other people think I'm a loon now) I sat back for a few minutes and I watched the selected food court staff doing their usual business dressed in pirate costumes!Yesterday, I was at the mall and relished having a Saturday free. After I finished my lunch and wiped the grin off my face (lest other people think I'm a loon now) I sat back for a few minutes and I watched the selected food court staff doing their usual business dressed in pirate costumes!

Too bad, none of them resembled Jack Sparrow or commotion would have been the thing for the day with loads of photo ops in the side. Hahaha. It felt I was heading for a swash-buckling meet N greet! The ladies were in costume too as fortune tellers minus the crystal balls while others were in witches get-up. I even misread a lady's intention, dressed as a fortune teller to thinking she wanted to tell me my fortune. *grins* It turned out she was asking me if I wanted to buy anything from her food cart filled with assorted Japanese dishes. I declined since I don't think I can squeeze anything else and besides, I only can stomach, is their beef teriyaki, so she went to the next table. Jeffer will definitely me give me some pointers here. See, I told ya, she's poking me already!

I wanted to take a picture of the pirate guys but I'm without my partner-in-crime for this mall visit. Kaecie's half away across the globe! Connie has issues with this mall, which I understand while Lyne, I didn't have time to ask as it was an impromptu decision from my end.

I left the food court and passed by the skating rink. Kids were twirling around and beginners (young and mature) were moving along the side of the rink, holding on the side bar for balance as they test their skating skills. Watching the people at the rink, brought back memories from college.

I remember I had skating rink discount tickets (good for 20 ppl), which I was holding after we completed our on-the-job training (OJT) at Elsie Gaches. I suggested to the second group coming from our Psych class to join us and check out the skating rink at the mall. Since, I still have extra 10 tixs, I broached our end-of-activity day with the group from another school. They liked the idea but we couldn't decide which exact day because we all had varied schedules. They told us they would let us know once their schedules have been sorted out. Unfortunately, like all half-cooked plans, at our final day of training, the group from the other school changed their minds because they still have a few more requirements to finish and for us Letran Knights, we put it off for a different day because we too had similar requirements to complete. Lolz. In the long run, we weren't able to hit the skating rink because before we knew it, it was already a week leading up to our graduation and I had already one thing in my mind, California!

Anyway, back to my yesterday's visit at the mall. After buying the needed toiletries, which can't seemed to find their way at our town mall, I nearly let out a shriek inside the department! My gaze fell on a group of mannequins with ghoulish masks on! If I could've taken a picture I would and post it here but the department people might think I'm on to steal their 'halloween ideas'. Hahaha.

I headed for NBS to buy a medical and a pharmacology dictionaries to help me get acquainted with the medical terms and drug names while taking the Medical transcription course. I really hope I don't have another spell where it feels like I'm in a middle of having "information overload or meltdown". Lolz. Last week, I had that feeling when I was studying for the Dermatology modular exams. This week, I'm "studying" the Orthopedics module. I kept saying to myself that the names of the human bones and muscles should be just a re-aquaintance since I've been through with this section of the human body when I stayed a couple years taking up Nursing. I'm forcing my mind to see the names like Latissimus dorsi, Sartorius or Tarsals, Tibia and Fibula as friends. Lolz.

I was able to receive several discount book coupons from NBS and I'm thinking of using it when I buy The Secret. Kaecie mentioned that I give it a read, so I will. Then I'll use the other discount book coupons for purchasing the rest of the Stargate Atlantis books : Exogenesis, Halcyon, The Chosen and Rising. Plus, the two up-coming books: Nightfall and Angelus.

Going home was very tiring. I had to contend with sardine-style packed way of traveling. I navigated around bodies, tried not to step on anyone's toes (literally) and made sure, no one tried to make a pass at me when I got off the bus. I was holding my breath on the way out too, because my nostrils have already been assaulted for too long.


  1. Sounds like an exciting day. Gotta love the woman in the fortuneteller suit. My friend also recommended me to read The Secret. She said it has lots of fresh insights on life itself. I haven't got the time to churn down any book over here.

    So you never skated? I remember taking a beginners lesson in ice skating back in 6th grade, but now my feet are stiff.

    Happy b'day, in case you haven't checked your Facebook and my message. LOL

  2. Not yet! I would like to skate someday. I bet it'll be fun. Oh, yes, I haven't visited my facebook account. Thanks!
