Topsey Turvey Ride [Delayed Posting]


Howdy folks?

I have had a lot of things going on -- did a lot of things, visited different places but I'm not able to blog it. You see I'm a photoholic, I love showing uploading photos instead of posting photo-less boring article. I have tons of pictures in my multiply site, call me narcissistic if you must, but that's me! [Fine, maybe I'm just being lazy-uh or whatever!]

Anyhoo, last December 8, I went out with zee boyfie and off we went to Mall of Asia for our pre-monthsary [is there even such a thing?!] date.

Then we went to the Global Fun Carnival [a.k.a Eurostar Carnival] and I so looove their Ferris Wheel where I get a good view of the Metro, err, more like the side of Manila Bay. lol. We went inside attractions after attractions such as Pirates and Jurrasic. I'm not really a fan of those haunted house-like features wherein staff in ghoulish attires randomly jump out at you, literally, and give you a heart attack! [scares the hell outta me!] Zee boyfie wanted to ride the Ranger, the one that makes a full 360-degree turn. Geesh, I turned green just looking at the stomach-hurling ride. Instead, I suggested we ride Flipper first since it doesn't flip our stomach upside down. Lady luck must be on my side tonight as after the Flipper ride he felt sick that he didn't feel going in for another innards-flipping adventure. hahaha

Sneaky me took two shots of him unknowingly! [well, he actually saw it but is oblivious. lol]


G: 'Wait lang, let me sit for awhile, umiikot ang mundo ko' [my world's spinning] *Barf*
{eewww..}

PS: Well he didn't actually said those but it's fun to add dialogue ahaha.. but he did puke! 


He was seeing doubles after the Flipper ride! [there goes our ride-all-you-can tickets]


So for now, I think we won't be going anywhere near a carnival yet! Dang!



What a day! Sending some love,

The Magic Stays


As a well-deserved day out, our team (BW) went to Enchanted Kingdom to enjoy the rides (uh kinda) and basically to reminiscent and re-lived our childhood days.



Weee I still love Rio Grande! I still haven't conquered my fear with Space Shuttle (I guess I won't ever be.. especially after hearing the news late last night that this ride suspended mid-air with actual people holding on to the safety seatbelts and praying for dear life!)

Below are some photos we've captured:







and because I don't have the guts to ride the Space Shuttle.. I have settled with the RollerSkates?! ahehehe

We then headed to Leslie's in Tagaytay to try their Best-seller: Bullalo

Bitten by a Love Bug!



love is just a word... until someone you meet makes you understand it's true meaning

The quote above makes perfect sense! I dunno but perhaps I've been bitten by a love bug as well (wahaha.. coming from me.. it's hard to believe, right?!)

At this very moment, words are just not enough to describe my feelings, my emotions.. But maybe.. just maybe.. for a change I am elated and I am giving love a second chance and I am letting a person into my life.

Hey! Welcome to my Life!

post should be published last November 9, 2007

On Line Shopping Galore


Life is too short so enjoy and go shopping galore! Wehehe


Seems like this is exactly what I am doing. But not the usual mall hopping or boutique hopping every weekend. This is easier --a looot easier-- since all you have to do is surf surf and surf. Yep I am addicted to on line shopping. I have been wanting to do so but the first attempt was unsuccessful.. I was ready to buy an Über cutesy party top from an entrepreneur and was about to pay for the item but then I have no Gcash and was too lazy to reload it in my mobile wallet so I opted to go to the nearest bank in our area and deposit the money to her bank account, but alas! the freakin' bank is offline and I was Über lazy to go to a not-so near bank...and there went my first attempt on online shopping.

Then after a few months, my colleague is establishing her own online shopping site and asked me if I wanted to order flip flops (sample items) of course free International shipping. Ahehe

Also, I chanced the site of Chynna O. and saw some (well..oh okay..most) of the items are really fab and cutie. So I got hooked and so most of the time that I am online I surf and surf and surf for items that caught my eyes.


PS: It is not advisable to order shoes online specially if the size of your feet varies (meaning sometimes it 5 1/5 and sometimes it's 6 -mine- aheheh). Also you cannot touch to feel the material it is made of (blisters are ouchy, not to mention not a very likable sight). But it's good if they have a return policy -though I'm afraid not many of them have. =(

But nonetheless, it is really an enjoyable pastime but sometimes I go crazy over the items that I often have a battle with my logical and practical side of the brain plus a tug of war with my wallet. ahehehe.


PPS: Try it though, it is very convenient, efficient plus time and energy-saving as well.


PPS: Multiply is a haven of many young and creative entrepreneurs.

You Asked Me if I Love You




I just so love this song.. The lyrics really HIT hard! (toinks)


Here goes:


You ask me if I love you And i choke on my
reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly than mislead you
with a lie
And who am I to judge you On what you say or
do?
I'm only just beginning to see real you

CHORUS: And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you 'til I die
'Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you 'til the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy Leaves me battling
with my pride
But, through the insecurity Some tenderness
survives
I'm just another writer Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter Sill trapped within my
youth (Chorus)

At times, I'd like to break you And drive you to
your knees
At times, I'd like to break through And hold you
endlessly

At times, I understand you And I know how hard
you've tried
I've watched while love commands you And I've
watched love pass by
At times, I think we're drifters Still searching for a
friend
A brother or a sister But then the passion flares
again.. (Chorus)



PS: See so touching!!

Nostalgia


I've been browsing my Friendster Blog (to re-read the entries I've typed in and also because I am feeling kinda senti!) when I chanced upon this entry last December '06.. I still feel this way even if it's more than a year since graduating from college.







Read on..
WARNING: Not for the faint hearted-- too serious to handle!!

Gosh, i can't believe i'm working now... it's like only yesterday that we are loitering around PLM's campus and discussing our projects or creating a plot or even 'squeezing ourselves like a lemon' just so we could produce an answer to the brain-draining and nose-bleeding crisis of pr.. hehehe..

but now, i'm here in an airconditioned room, in front of a computer and should be sending emails to customers, but is actually typing this article for a personal blog. teehee ^_^

i miss all the times wherein we would just sit under one shed or on the grass and looking (and scrutinizing) everything and everyone we see.. sharing stories, giggling and just having fun... as if nothing's the matter.. and we're not beating every subject's deadlines!!

it's just now that it's sinking into my system that college life's over.. the virtual reality had passed, i'm now playing in the real game called -- LIFE!

now i'm telling myself, in college when we fail an exam or recitation, we can always make it up next time. but in this reality game, we can never have the same exact scenario, there'll be no next time-- we can only have experiences gained and lessons learned..

but no matter what, i know i have my family and friends to help me hurdle the obstacles that'll come my way, who'll slow me down when i'm running too fast and who'll pick me up when i stumble..

"may ganung factor??.. nagdadrama!!"


This entry transcends me through time! I know, we (my closest college friends) make it a point to
meet every weekends or at least twice a month.. but still it's very different from what it used to
be way back in college -where we have everyday of our college life to talk, laugh at goof around- today, we don't have the luxury of time to do that anymore (and i guess, there never will be) that is why aside from Friday night gimiks we also plan (a very looooong planning indeed- which entails, synchronizing scheds, scheduling office leaves and other what tos?!) a long weekend trip to a place away from the rat-race in Makati (Lheng & I) or Manila (Pau & Hapi), in hope that we can find solace and seek comfort from each other -while ranting our frustrations and sharing our goals and being excited and glad on each other's achievements and accomplishments.

Gosh, I am just so freakin' melodramatic.. I think I can write a tear-jerking script- but then again maybe not!


PS: I just came from our weekend getaway at Hapi's place in Antipolo. We actually have the gal to swim and defy typhoon Egay's wrath.


*No Egay! you can't stop us! Rain or shine if our mind is set in doing it.. do it we will! haha... -yeah, we're that stubborn.. or atleast I think, we are ;)


It's fun and we've got tons and tons of photos.. ÜÜÜ

Hows your day going? Are you missing someone dear too?


hugs n kisses

Ballad version of Umbrella




This ballad rendition of Rihanna's Umbrella ella ella (sorry cant resist it! ehehe) was done by Mandy Moore.

Initially my reaction was.. NO WAY! a slow and soulful version of the upbeat and remix Umbrella?! For sure it'll be funny and it will just ruin the song. True to my initial reaction, after hearing Mandy's rendition, it really sounded funny and queer. But after hearing it for the second time, I decided that it is worth listening to. Mandy Moore's voice wasnt at all powerful and great but it gave justice to the song. I kinda like this slow and soulful rendition of Umbrella.

If I feel like dancing I will just have to play Rihanna's Umbrella to groove into the beat, but if I wanna enjoy the song in a more relaxing way and also to reflect on the message of the song then I will just have to scroll to Mandy's ballad. I have actually added the song to my playlist! hehe..

PS: I also happen to learn that there's a ballad version of BEP's My Humps rendered by Alanis Morisette. Wahahah it's not worth a pence! Alanis' angst-ridden voice plus the song's playful message equals creepy! ahahah it really makes me laugh HARD!! Alanis probably meant it as a joke.. but still it gave me a fright, I didn't even want to give her version a second hearing.

Fun-filled Day


We always make it a point to dine out every Friday of the week, just to personally fill in on each other's life -work and love (or the lack of it) or allot an entire day for each other. It's not just tetê-a-tetê that we do.. We just loove to eat, and eat we do! We're just soo damn lucky it doesn't show!

be green with envy .. LOL




The rundown: Had luch at our fave (at least mine) pizza parlour, Carlo's Pizza- where I soo love the non-greasy-melt-in-your-mouth pizza; then talked and throw jokes on each other; then watched Ratatoullie while   rolling our eyes over the uncivilized being who can't help but repeat to his companion what is being shown on the big screen! Duh?! I wonder if he woorks for a radio station (probably a dubber - ay nagluluto yung daga, hahaha nabunggo yung bike) hallaer! it's like we can see it naman?! Some people are just so whatevah!!

Then, had a guilty pleasure dessert at Chocolat. I had the sinfully delicious Bailey's Cake



AHA Hapi! Sira ang South Beach diet! ahehe Lagot kami kay Abba!


Hapi: Guilty!



PS: I loove the animation and the story even if it's just so gross seing a cooking-rat-infested-four star-restaurant.


Ratata,

Witnessing a DocuFest ala iWitness




This day I was excited to meet up with lheng and watch iWitness' Docufest @ SM Manila Cinema. This was just like way back in college (it's not that long ago though I really miss watching the shows. I'm having a hard time catching even just an episode due to my current erratic schedule.)

I thought that the cinema will be half-empty (talk about pre-conceived notions! haha.. it's just that, before documentaries are..uh..well, not appreciated in a country were the mass favored the movie with the latest 'it boy or girl' rather than the socially-relevant films.)

Anywei, my fave was the episode of Kara David, wherein she featured two girls with a rare illness that lets their body grow old at a very faster rate than normal (it's physically obvious as well). This story is very heart-warming, to think that personally I don't like stories or issues wherein the topic is a rare disease or something just to pinch the heart of the audience, but this one is different, I can feel the sincerity.. or maybe it was done nicely (oh well, it's their job to 'capture' the audience!)

Kudos to the scriptwriter and to Kara for being not an overly dramatic host. (may puso pero hindi OA to the point that I might want to just puke sa ka-plastikan LOL! Ü)


PS: After this docufest thingie, I then rushed somewhere up north coz I'm meeting up with a friend and we'll catch a movie.



How's your day doing?

Camera Whoring


These were some of the photos taken just right after shift. We all still have the energy to smile for the camera. (can't help it!) These were my colleagues from IBM.

Pardon my lack of descriptive words, I'm not actually in the mood to paint vivid pictures in your minds as to what was happening behind those shots. wehehe..

Feeling Blue


It's Wednesday shift once again and it means a weekend for me (oh of course not literally, it's just that in my erratic shift schedule my weekly off are thursdays and fridays).

I dont know but I'm kinda feeling blue. I wish I could somehow understand the sh*t I'm feeling inside. I'm not liking the mood shifts I'm feeling (see, I'm typing a lot of 'feelings' here!) quite often nowadays -one moment I'm thoroughly happy as can be, then next I'm gloomy as the darkest rain cloud (pardon the corni comparison- this is the best that I can think of right now!)

Okay, so probably I'm not being reasonable (so what?!) You are not being quite honest about it as well..

I guess, I can't continue anymore... Let's talk after we've sorted out our feelings and can be honest regarding how we feel about it so we can get it over and done with!

Don't want to be left in the dark...



PS: Probably, I'm vague in this entry, I just don't want to elaborate the details..i just want to let it out.

It's Sunday Night!


It's Sunday night.. not much a busy day for me! I am browsing the net for condos/apartments for rent near Commonwealth, QC [preferable 2 bedrooms- and located in a very secure subdivision or neighborhood (remember my experience in Baguio - well, probably not since I really am not posting blogs in this page yet when that incident occured- we were robbed while we were sleeping.. geez scary! dont wanna remember that incident!]

Oh well, we we're able to find one hat's within close proximity to the 'new' office building, 2 bedrooms and cheap (just 7,500!)But alas! when I tried the contact infos posted on the web - both (landline and mobile #) we're not working!! Well, too bad!

And now.. we're still looking for a flat!

*********
Just wanna share...

earlier, I received a text message from arvee saying that she loaded her phone with prepaid credits so she can text me (awww sweetness!) and also that she is missing us (sob,sob) since she cant go with us every (or at least one Friday per month) at the staple rendezvous, since she havent got a Friday off yet.
I've also asked her about her mom, good thing she told me that she's coping (sometimes she feels depressed but just dont wanna let the others know -one tough momma!)
Miss you too bebi!! Hope you can join us soon (the sooner the better!)

MWAH!

* * *

On a lighter note, Lheng and I talked over YM regarding the CineManila (with Director Quentin Tarantino of Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill among other films tucked under his belt) and our plan on July 21 to go to SM Manila and catch the free screening of i-Witness' docus (being documentary fanatics and also for the love of Howie - we loove the works of Howie Severino, especially my friend, Lheng who got her chance when he agreed for an interview with her!

Anyway, we got a date at SM Manila on July 21 after lunch. People if you wanna catch this event just drop by on the said place and date. This will be worth your time! Ü

Date with Harry







I went to Gateway Mall earlier so I can buy tickets before the influx of people and the long queues. I checked the Globe Platinum Cinema (where the lay-z boys and unlimited popcorns and drinks are located) but alas! tickets there were already sold out! (and also the price of tickets are P350 so since we dont need that much popcorn and we're not that tired that we want to recline into a lay-z seat I opted to buy the cheaper tickets to the ordinary cineplex which costs just P170 each).

I then went to StarBucks to wait for my friends (since my feet are killing me). It's only 5:30pm so I've got a lot of time to kill. Yeah, I thought of shopping or window-shopping but since Im damn tired, I decided against it. Anyway, Starbucks is a nice and cozy place to hangout. I ordered my frap and orea cheesecake.(YUM!) Though, I was disappointed with the cheesecake, it was so rich that I got sated after 3 small bites of it!

Anyway, it was past 6pm when leng arrived within the area.. it's like all the people that came into the store with me at the same time left and I'm still there.. gosh, it's like forever.. but anywei, it's okay since I'm really excited to meet up with them 'cause we haven't met since we watched Transformers on it's first week (forgot the exact date!)

We had dinner first at the foodcourt on the 3rd level of the mall. Then, went to the cineplex to re-enter the now dark, deadly and mysterious world of Harry Potter.

The cinematography is great! I love the wand duel of two powerful wizards (Albus Dumbledore and he-who-must-not-be-named) though the plot or story seems to be missing something. Books are really better than the actual movies, but then the movie is a great feast on my eyes! Love the special effects!! Ü

Dont wanna be the Third Wheel


I am writing here today without any particular idea what I'm gonna write. I just feel the rush of letting the words flow out at the fingertips (uh, literally since im typin the letters-wehehe so corni! Ü)

Anywei, I realized that I must refrain from being overly accommodating to this person since I think as the day progress I'm starting to fall - wrong reasons, wrong time.. but the right person (i guess?!) I tried to ignore the feeling to the point that I almost bottled up my emotions and reactions towards the situation.. it's not at all healthy .. im tired and it is leaving a searing pain and it troubles my heart (lol) Hey! don't wanna be the third wheel here! So guess I'll try straighten this up and hopefully gain some control over my emotions -AGAIN-

*sob.. sob*

Figure it out!!


I'm actually starting this new blog (hope I can manage to keep it updated though!)
I just got inspired by my friend's new blog (Lheng)

Honestly.. I always wanted to start this before it's just that I haven't got a time to spare. Also, I am a picture addict so I've got tons of photos (some were not yet uploaded in any of my sites! heehee-talk about lazyness)from all our escapades and when we just feel like wanting to capture our charms under the lenses of the camera (lol) so I have more stuff on multiply and the 100 alotted photos for friendster were already used up (except for the remaining 2 wherein for some unkown reasons the site just wont let me upload 2 photos for the remaining slots-GRRRR)

I will try to faithfully outpour my emotions and spill my secrets here.. see yah Ü
