i'm back!

yes, i've been back for almost a week but i've been too tired these past few days that after dinner, i just fall asleep. i don't know if delicious is a proper adjective for sleep but if it is, sleep this past few days has been of chicken-adobo delicious level, so good that i have not been able to scrap. and people who know me know i'd rather scrap than sleep 95% of the time.

i took a couple of pictures from japan which i promise to upload soon. people ask me how the trip was and i would always say, "like amazing race japan, 4 cities in 5 days." and it felt like amazing race for me, lugging my 20-kg luggage (mental note: that is why you must pack light) around 5 stations. at one point, the japanese boss must've taken pity on me and helped me drag my luggage to the hotel after seeing my feeble rain-soaked attempt to pull it. although i must say i saw more of japan this time around as i got to drop by rokko island, akashi, takasaki and tokyo. i don't know when i'll be back but hopefully next time will not be as exhausting. i did manage to get some scrapbook stuff - a couple of oa-ish appliques, multi-colored washi tapes and matrioshka stamps. i will be off to batangas tomorrow for our company offsite and boipren and i might check out some venues for the wedding on saturday.

less than a week afetr being home, i have managed to make up for lost scrapping time with shopping. on tuesday, i purchased the mm passport stamp and some k&co papers from memory lane store. yesterday, i dropped by lasting impression to get the heather bailey stamp and a couple of papers from sassafras, scenic route and making memories. today, i got three of the scrapbook trends books i ordered from ebay. i am still waiting for my september sc kit, ebay pruchase #2 (an oa stamp, heather bailey buttons and maya road tutti fruity trinkets) as well as my prize from designx. i was a bit envious when i saw that yoyin got her prize already. i am beginning to suspect that there is something wrong with our post office.
