Empties and A Little Sad Update

Is it the end of the month already? I didn’t realize it until I saw the title of this post in the draft. I’ve been postponing all my ‘planned’ posts because I’ve just been really uninspired to talk about skincare and makeup lately. My grandfather is in the hospital now, with a tube down his nose and another tube for IV drip. The tube down his nose is for the nurses to feed milk to him, but even that, his body is rejecting. The doctor with very bad bedside manners told him everything we didn’t, and even more. Maybe it’s a good thing, I don’t know. Now, knowing he has only a minute to a year to live, my granddad wants to try everything possible to prolong his life becauseĀ either way, he’d die. My granddad, who survived Japanese occupation during the World War II is going to fight with all that he has, even though he knows it’s a battle he can never win. He’s more like wielding a shield instead of a sword, and he’s just holding on until the inevitable. Kinda reminds me of the last scene in the movie 300.

That’s the courageous granddad I admire, albeit a little rough on the edges šŸ™‚

I want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who emailed me, who commented and who are praying for my granddad. It’s been a little gloomy here, and IĀ promise to keep my next post more upbeat. So if I go MIA again, most likely it means I have nothing happy to write about. And if I haven’t been commenting on your blogs, it doesn’t mean I forgot about you. I still love you. Just give me some time šŸ™‚

On another note, here are what I used up the last few months.






I think I reviewed all of them before. Just do a search if you’re interested. So, that’s it. Here’s the little update of what’s been going on this month. The kids are doing just fine, and while keeping our lives as normal as possible, we’re also prepared for any emergencies. I’m also walking on thin ice, because my mom’s been really sensitive and ‘explosive’ lately. All understandable, but also that much more stressful. Hahaha!

Until the next time, keep well, my friends!

Oh, and before I forget, Happy Deepavali to all my Hindu friends!
