quite a tiring day today. my feet are aching from too much shopping. i stepped on the treadmill immediately after breakfast. the feeling of sweat dripping from my whole body was refreshing.

finally, the long wait is over. after spending sleepless nights and straining my eyes during bumpy shuttle rides to the office, I finished the 500-page "Memoirs of a Geisha."

quite an interesting story. it truly made me appreciate Japanese culture. and taught me new Jap words...like "san", which is a polite way of addressing men and women and means "Miss" or "Mr." in English, "danna" meaning husband..and a lot more.

thanks to my friends cat and pam, i was introduced to the book. i got hold of the book in late March when cat kindly lent it to me. actually, i was lazy to read at the start...

i progressed slowly since i had a lot of activities and extra stuff to do at home. tita tet arrived in april 1 for vacation. shopping and going to different places used to be a practice, or a custom perhaps, when tita tet is home. so what could you expect? being the shop-a-holic gurl that i am, i surely wouldn't miss the gimmicks.
