lemon & ginger

I’ve always hated long and winding road because it makes me feel terribly dizzy and it triggers the “anacondas’” in my stomach to do a somersault. Result? Vomitting.  I used to puke everytime we travel to Baguio City* when I was a kid. And I definitely detest the aftermath feeling. Darn! Just by writing this paragraph makes me sick. Arghhh!
(TheCuriousMe Note: Baguio City is the Summer Capital of the Philippines.)

Now, why am I yakking about this bus and vomit thingy? Well, it seems like they implemented a new bus timing in which I’m not aware of. As a result, I “accidentally” rode the bus that took the long route. That timeslot was suppose to be the for “short route” bus that I normally take. Serves me right for not checking. Grrrr! There were so many left and right turns that it felt like I was travelling in a zigzag road!

By the time I reached the office, I was “super duper mega over” dizzy and I already felt like puking. No, I did not go directly to the bathroom. Instead, I immediately went to the kitchen area to prepare hot ginger and lemon tea to drink.

I felt miraculously better after sipping the contents of the cup. It’s even better than sniffing white flower (a.k.a ammonia) or taking biogesic or panadol. Hmmm… They said this is good for the voice too. That’s the main reason why I bought it. I never thought it works for “dizzy” and “nearly puking” people as well.

I hope by the time I finish the 24 packs, I will be able to sing one song without a glitch. La la la la la!

at a glance

I bet you’re curious on who thecuriousme is? Get to know me at a glance… Read on!

I’m blessed with a very complicated name… to the point that I have to spell it all the time in order for people to understand it. What can I say, it’s a lifetime battle. 😉

I’m the kind of person who loves to smile and laugh. I enjoy hanging out with energetic and crazy people.  I’m addicted to Korean and Taiwanese Comedy TV Series.  Writing is one of my passions and it serves as an outlet for venting out my curtailed emotions.

My unending thirst for learning has driven me to take up and finish several courses. These are: BS Computer Science in Lorma Colleges (Philippines); MA in Technological Education at Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (Philippines); through a scholarship grant given by Netherlands Fellowship Program, a Post Graduate Diploma in Managerial Control and Management Information System in Maastricht School of Management (The Netherlands); and a 10-week London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Level 1 Bookkeeping course in Uptrend Business School (Singapore).

Education, work experience and traveling helped me a great deal to become a well-rounded individual. Teaching at the age of 20 helped me become more flexible, open minded and extremely patient. While in HSBC, I learned to become an effective team player. Dealing with irate clients can be irksome but it’s absolutely fulfilling when they end up being happy and satisfied on how their concerns were handled. Whereas, working in Singapore and studying in Netherlands ignited my interest in learning other cultures and languages.

One last note, I’m a self-confessed nomad. So far, I have travelled few countries in Asia, Europe and North America. I still have four (4) more continents and several countries to go. The three (3) other things that I want to do in this lifetime are: to sing one song without a glitch, become a DJ for a day, and get drunk like there’s no tomorrow.
