Under The Weather

When you live by yourself, life gets tough when you fall ill. These are the days when you long for home, terribly miss Mom's encouraging words and home cooking. I have been feeling under the weather since Thursday, but I shrugged it off and went to work anyway. Now, I feel really tired and my world seems to be spinning. Today was spent lying down on my couch just coughing and sniffling. These are the days I turn to the comfort of watching movies I really enjoy. Sick days are movie marathon days. I dug into my DVD collection and so far, I've seen Rush Hour 1 and 2, Music and Lyrics, The Holiday, The Forbidden Kingdom, Big Momma's House, and now an old time favorite - While You Were Sleeping. Let me cough and sniffle, as I fill myself with a warm soup of Pork Sinigang and a cup of Chamomile tea.

Here's my favorite line from the movie, While You Were Sleeping, it gets me every time:
Do you believe in love at first sight? Nah, I betcha don't, you're probably too sensible for that. Or have you ever, like, seen somebody? And you knew that, if only that person *really* knew you, they would, well, they would of course dump the perfect model that they were with, and realize that YOU were the one that they wanted to, just, grow old with. Have you ever fallen in love with someone you haven't even talked to? Have you ever been so alone you spend the night confusing a man in a coma?

  10. oh funny! Ces and i we're just talking last night how did we became as a couple. He asked why i chose to remain single for four years - since the day i met him at a coffee shop. And i admitted (blame it to the tequila) that i think i loved him from the first sight.

    I still have to watch While You Were Sleeping. Thank you for sharing. And i hope you are well now. Hug you tight!

  15. Stay healthy, Kayni! ^^ "While You Were Sleeping" is nice but not so romantic. TT.TT I don't know. I just didn't feel the chemistry between Sandra and her partner. [sorry can't remember the name] ^^;;

  16. kayni i hope you feel better. i agree that the worst time to fall ill is when you are alone. i've experienced that too when i was still living in a dorm and it was so hard because i also had to take care of myself. hugs to you dear.

  17. that's the reason why i can't leave home. yung feeling na magkasakit. kasi up to now, si mama ang taga alaga ko. from the pagpunas, pagkuha ng temp, pagpainom ng gamot and katabi ko pa sya matulog. hugs for you my friend! pagaling ka ah! :)

    i watched that movie a lot of times na rin. watch sleepless in seattle din. ganda rin yun! :)

  23. I live alone too and it's a bit of a bummer if you're all alone and sick. I have DVD collections too so they can keep me company in times when I need to hibernate.

    I haven't seen While You Were Sleeping in a long time. Which reminds me to look for it in shops when DVD sale season is on again.

    Hope all is well with you. :-)
