Shutterfly Adventure in Zambales


Turkey Day in the US! Wee no work! Oh well, it doesnt matter since the day is really my work off. Anyway, half of the team (i think..) went on a resort in Pundaquit, Zambales. It's 1.5 hours away from Subic, but since we're not familiar with the place (well i think none of us really know) it probably took us moooore than that.

The road to the resort is, well sorta creepy (its pitch dark when we drove on the narrow winding road that seems to lead us nowhere.. hehe)

I love it when we island hop to Anawangin Cove! It's picturesque. Amazing rock formations (too bad dont have a camera with me -> but i doubt i'll be able to take decent pictures since the boat ride was rather rough with the presence of temperamental waves) It's really peaceful and relaxing!

I definitely will go back to Anawangin (and hopefully to Capones Island after) but i cant say the same to Megan's Resort, where we stayed for the night.

Check out some of our photos below:





More Photos here! ^_^

You guys might wanna check out and visit Anawangin Cove, and don't forget to island hop to Capones after! (Just make sure you take precautions and safety measures wherever you'll travel)

Enjoy! tata

Of Anniversary and Relaxation in the City of Pines -- late post


This is a super late post, but anyway here goes:

We celebrated our 1st milestone last November 9, 2008 up in the City of Pines. This is also timely since I'm already burned out from the hustle bustle in the work place. It's very relaxing to feel the cool November breeze, smell the scent of pine trees around and just take our own sweet time exploring the city --the best part is-- we have each other for 4 sweet days!! READ: No interrupting phone calls, emails, computer games, errands, etc etc. No pressures and other stress-triggering matters.

Here are some of the photos we've managed to capture.

hugs n kisses,

Birthday Getaway


Had my birthday getaway last July 26 to July 29. It was an awesome weekend! Away from the rat-race and the stressful traffic jam in the metro. Went out of town with my boo at Subic's Blue Rock Resort for a rainy swimming.

Got the rain, sand and salt waters on our hair and skin. It was fun, specially if you get to spend it with someone closest to your heart.



PS: My besfriends send their warmest greetings. I am so sorry if I wont be able to treat you out this time or if I wasnt able to spend my birthday with you guys. I'll make it up to you next time. I miss you all! Hhay antagal na natin di nagkikita kita! What happened to our Friday nights dinner or movie date?! -- I guess time keeps us physically apart, but it still we have each other in our hearts.. that'll do for now, until we're able to keep up with everyone's schedule. ^_^

Missing My Bebis


We've been through hell and back through college! (exaggerated for emphasis! nyahaha)




Most people say that highschool is the best and it highlights the adolescence stage in life. While I don't disagree with it, for me the best and most memorable phase in my life was during my college years. Of course it's not the best time of your school life since there are tons to do in college -thesis, video productions, plays and other presentations, research and interviews left and right, not to mention that in my Alma Matter, peepz are scholarly competitive! Whew! nyahaha that's one thing I don't like much in college!- This is where I learned to be human enough to admit my mistakes and weaknesses, and I've discovered my strengths and capabilities.

My college days played a big part in my transformation (of course hindi naman ako ngevolve into something new. Katakot naman iyon!) wherein I learned to appreciate simple things and be ever greatful in the life I'm living. Also, it helps that I've got beautiful people I call Friends - who believes in me, helps me every step of the way and keeps me grounded.

In college, I've learned who are real and who are just there for the sake of having a companion (user!! tsk) You don't call yourself a friend just because you always group yourselves in every project or assignment. Seeing each other everyday and having lunch together doesn't count as well.

Friends are people who stay with you through thick and thin (sabi nga ni Jelopy, parang asawa yan! ahahaha ;p) Complicated schedules should never be a hindrance! You don't have to see each other everyday, but you have to have each other in your hearts! ♥♥♥ (naks!)

If you have those people who stick through ups and downs; those who haul you up your feet when you're down and is going through hell-of-difficulties; those who have the guts to kick your ass and tell you upfront the silliest things you did and is still doing, then your lucky, luv.

Why am I blogging today? It's just that I miss my friends. I miss the giggles and laughters even at the most corniest jokes, the pout of the lips when one's making tantrums (wahahaha nggaganun pa?!), and most of all the videoke na naging magic sing sessions (zoshal na!), the camwhoring moments at and pagsshoot ng walang kwentang videos na mapagtripan i-roleplay!

And so I created this miniclip for my ABK Bebis! I miss you guys! Mwahugz

Abay zoshal at Ice cream Cake daw ako hahaha!-

Discovering Science in Mall of Asia


I've heard of a Science Discovery Center in SM Mall of Asia since last year (i think!) and I've been wanting to go there since then but having an erratic and ever-changing schedule (at syempre ang iba pang mga pinagkakaabalahan aside from work ;p) I havent had the time. Fortunately, my now-more-normal-person-schedule allows me to go and have fun.

The entrance fee is 330php for the gallery display and the 30-minute show inside the Planetarium. It's worth the pesos since you can explore the place in your own pacing and try the different displays they have.

I really enjoyed this experience and I felt like i'm a kid again. Weeee hahaha :D

Below are very few photos I managed to take (notice this time I don't have a picture of my own fez --> just giving chance to others nyahahaha :p)

On the first floor there's Digistar Planetarium where they showed a 30minute (or less) clip entitled 'The Search for Life: Are We Alone' and narrated by Harrison Ford

Then there's the Transportation Nation where you can try the Flight Stimulation (hindi ma-reach ng utak ko kung pano aayusin ang pagpapalipad nun andun sa screen! waaah try nyo baka mapagtanto nyo!) also, I was able to design a car and was rated for the materials I've used per parts.

On the same floor, there's the Grossology section,


where we get to meet the Burp Man

And I won the Grossology game over Gene. Yey! hahaha ;p I know, I'm gross! nyahaha :p

On the second floor we entered the Virtual Reef where we get to meet Mr. Tee, the talkingfish


Gene here having a ♥-to-♥ talk with Mr. Tee. nyahahaha

Oh! before I forget, on the first floor, we played volleyball, soccer and basketball in their Media City. I have a video clip of Gene shooting hoops virtually and it was really funny if your not looking on the monitor! ahahaha sayang I can't upload it since the file size is too large (o hindi lang ako talaga marunong! amp)

We had fun exploring the center.. You might want to check it yourself this weekend!

Lovely Monday Morning



It's monday morning. It's a Sunny day. Gonna be a wonderful day!

Normally I find myself heading home straight from work but today, MY OH MY, I am preparing to go to the office. (hahaha for a change I'm doing the 9-5 normal office girl routine! --> only for a short stint though 'cause our schedule changes before you can say YEY OFF! next thing you know 1 lang ang off mu that week at bago na naman ang schedule mo! Argh!)

As I walked out of our house I noticed that it's a beautiful day outside, weather's not too hot and I even heard birds chirping. Poocha! parang gusto kong kumanta ng "Oh, what a beautiful mornin',
Oh, what a beautiful day. I got a beautiful feelin' Ev'rything's goin' my way." na hindi ko naman talaga alam ang tono at na-google ko lang bwahahaha! =>

So as we cruise along Ayala (sakay ng jeep na pampasahero), mejo traffic pero hindi ko ito alintana dahil nga it's a wonderful morning and I'm oh so feeling fine! I saw an executive (malay ko kung exec talaga sapagkat sya'y naka power suit ahahah ;p) buying taho (ung soy with syrup and sago) and it made me realize that there are some simple things, foods, habits that you want, eat, do and they make you happy. There are some thing from our childhood that we cannot outgrow.

Bakit ba ako ngbblog ngayon? Wala naman, natuwa lang ako sa isang magandang umaga na aking nasaksihan ngayon..usually kasi pauwi pa lang ako pagumaga at hindi ko napapansin ang aking paligid sapagkat ako'y sobrang pagod sa pagtatrabaho. (wow busy! haha)

I hope Monday Mornings are always wonderful so I can be more inspired to do the things I do and start the work week right!

Friends+Magic Sing+Camera = Whole lot 'a FUN!


Friends spells F-U-N!!

For this weekend we hang out at Lheng's crib somewhere in Novaliches, QC. Im a bit late though (oh, okay.. well I'm really really late! ahehehee - I've got an alibi though - had a date -).

When I arrived, they are all there and creating chaos in the house! peace!

First, I ate, hehe who can resist food?! Food is my comfort. It helps me relax and makes me happy!

Since we missed going to videoke bars (we often do it during college weee) we all sing our hearts out, uh well, mostly John did since he won't pass the microphone to us and probably thought of staging his mini concert! nyahahaha

ABK bondi
ng moments would never be the same if we don't have our photo ops, so here are some of the photos I stole from my friends' sites.


*at ciempre yung maeemote kong pictures and pinost ko dito! hahaha AT dahil feel na feel ko ang pagkanta, sana lang I'm also hitting the high notes correctly nyahaha*

For more camera whoring, visit Lheng's and Jhevy's Multiply site and enter our wacky world. ^_^

PS: Too bad we have to go home 'cause I still have work tomorrow (damn schedule transition!) and also Hapi has an early Church commitment.
I MISS OUR OVERNIGHTS!!

My World Smiles More...


Sounds cheezy ayt?! hahaha What can I do, I can't help it!! ☺

Let me start of by saying, 2007 was a great year!

A few months after graduation I got a job.. yeah not an ideal job I should say, but hey! it pays the bills (not that I've got lots to pay) and also it gets me things I'm used to without asking mom for allowance (shame on me if I'm still doing this! ahehehe), helps in paying for my vacations or my weekly gimiks or even just an intimate dinner with friends! Weee

Also, I learned to open my heart, trust and gave love another chance (of breaking my heart again! I hope not! ahehehe)

2007 lets me experience new things, gain new knowledge,hurdle new problems, get to meet new people and have new friends, set new priorities and goals, rekindle my faith and ties with the Lord and... get to meet the one person I have learned to trust and love.

*cheers*

I had a blast in '07 and I am looking forward to other new things in my life in the Year of the Rat!


I am welcoming 2008 with arms wide open and a huge smile plastered on my face!


Let's Get it On!
