bonjourjoan Ang #siopao bow When we were growing up (in Makati) our dad would take us with him once or twice a week to this store (I forgot the name, and I wonder if it's still there ) to get siopao: #bolabola and asado. As we wait for the siopaos me and my sister would be playing this game wherein this huge eagle is going to steal the siopao from us... The store was along the freeway, we call it highway back home, and right in front of the store there's this huge statue of an eagle. And before the eagle could get a hold of the siopao our dad would save the day and the siopao by starting the engine and take us back home so we can enjoy it with the whole family.

bonjourjoan Last night after our Friday yoga sesh, @dhwynn1 mentioned pigeon pose... What is pigeon pose? And then he showed me this... Level 1 #flyingpigeonpose
I remembered the day I learned how to do this pose, I tried it again at home after learning it from the yoga studio. It's was my 500th post here in #Instagram, I #faceplanted lol... Hence the #smile at the end of the video. I'm #glad that David reminded me of this pose, I should work on making it fly... #flyingaway #Moony

bonjourjoan Thankful to Huong ( I consider her my aunt at work, she was my second preceptor when I was a new grad nurse and has been around me as I grow up in our career of nursing) for inviting me to go with her to Chùa Liên Hoa today to celebrate #ChucMungNamMoi.

She met me at the entrance, I was shy and don't know what to do , she gave me my first #Hongbao #LaiSee #RedEnvelope here in the US and when we enter the head monk gave us a #mandarinOrange for #goodluck and #wealth... Food were also offered and variety of dessert sticky rice... Yummy.

Additional treat was when I saw other familiar faces: an RT from work and Jenny and her family.

Another interesting day at work, held manual pressure post removal of IABP for 1hr 40min ( yes my hands felt numb) with the help of my awesome coworkers it stabilized.
After my shift I decided to make something instead of going to yoga, to #destress. I looked up the meaning of #doubleyolker they say it's #lucky, some it means #pregnancy in the family, if you're already pregnant you'll have #twins... Being lucky is good but I believe that I am not lucky but I am #blessed, #IamaChildofGod afterall . I got #double doubleyolkers here
What do you think it means?

Got tagged by @isteph to post about my day #yesterday, which happens to be one of the important days of my week: #Thursday #weekdaystories
Yesterday, i attended a red yoga class ( I do my very best to make sure I don't miss that class) at Purple Yoga #Fullerton with @dhwynn1 and one of yoga friends Jodie , was a very sweaty satisfying class as always. And did a bread/cupcake exchange with David: I am #blessed to be one of his testers of yummy goods. Took a much needed recovery nap and then stumbled upon this #gorgeous picture of a multi-tiered burger from the Philippines, which started this powerful craving to have a double double cheeseburger , which I was able to happily devour after 4-5 hrs of waiting for my bf to finish his class. With a happy tummy we were about to watch a movie but to our surprise the movie house was closed , so we ended up renting a dvd from redbox and stay in for the night.

This is my #weekdaystories: yoga with friends; craving for a burger influenced by an #Instagram post; #burgerwiththebf and stay in movie... I ️ my Thursdays.

Thank you Alegria, I feel like I'm putting an entry on my diary with this tag
Now I'm tagging @jbtlong23 (I miss you, share ur day with me) @instrutor_picapau and @notlostwanderer
Please share about your day (weekday) with a #weekdaystories and tag 3 other friends... Looking forward to knowing about them #beijos *this #video was taken Sunday, but love love this song right now so I'm posting it

bonjourjoan #doubledoublecheeseburger of #In&Out Bow After seeing a post a multi tiered #burger from @johnagra of course I instantaneously wanted to have one... Unfortunately that burger was 8207 miles away ... And as a good friend would I shared that picture to @dhwynn1 , which made us hungrier than what we're already are (did red yoga class)

#Patience is a #virtue indeed... Especially when you're #hungry; waited 4-5 hrs for my bf to come over from school and then I finally got a hold of this
