We Need a Resolution...

Because the year is turning to a close, I have to make promises to this coming 2009. And hopefully, I could fulfill most of them :D

1. Stop Procrastinating- Yep, I do that I lot these days. Every time I needed to do something fast, I get so distracted to the point where I don't know how to even finish.

2. Must.LOSE.WEIGHT- Serious matter. It has been one of the reasons why Hon and I fight a lot. He tells me to trim down, while I make excuses for everything, But I know all I need is an inspiration, and to lessen how I eat. Or maybe a reason to stop stuffing myself for food. hahaha.

3. Be on time- If you could see how much I make in the past months, I only get enough for my fare and food. You know why? because since I cannot afford being late anymore, I have to time in a half day to the office or I would be suspended. So if I wanna be really rich at 25, I have to get my ass early in the morning.

4. SAVE SAVE and SAVE- After the payday week, I never really know where my money went. Seriously. Yes, I signed up to have some money deducted off my salary every month, but I wanted to save up more than that. So no more frivolous gimmicks anymore. And since Hon pays for the card anyway, I need to stuff more money in the bank, than stuff myself with so much food. See, that's even related. :P

5. Be more reasonable- Sometimes, I base my decisions on chance. So I really have to be more mature in the things that I do, in order to really get it. And for me to fulfill this resolution, I think I really need to grow up first.

6. Make more memories- I could never really know how this 2009 will go but I'm signing up for a lot of fun moments, adventurous travels, and a multitude of joy with Hon, my family and friends.

Happy 2009 in a few hours everyone! :D

******************************

A yearender:

2008 has brought me so much than in the past years. I have made new friends, and lost some of them, babies were born, my work is more tedious but enjoyable, visited a lot of places, made many memories, cried a few but smiled a lot.

2008 had many tragedies too. A death of a colleague, the passing of strangers who brought huge impact on their lives, too much scandals and lies.

But 2008 is still a year of blessing. And it passes by saying that we all dealt some good and bad things, but the good thing is, we still made through the end of it.

And so we should make the most of the remaining hours of the year. And face the coming year with a big celebration and hopefully more luck it could give us.

..So I'll be signing on next year already! And Iloilo, here I come! hehehe :D

Be Safe everyone! :D

And their hearts reunite as one...

One of my best friends, Mary Rose got married to Mellard this day. What supposed to be a very simple and intimate wedding became more special when all their family and friends joined them as they become husband and wife.

Ive known Maro when we were in first year high school. I was looking for new friends, being new to our high school, and I discovered that she was also a transferee. So that majority, made us click right from the very start. She was my partner in crime. When I was looking for girl crushes (yes, that's normal at an all girl school), she was also looking for hers. We were both obsessed with stickers and stationeries at the back of the school, and would be seen at that place after our last class. And boy, did we ever trade some of them, just for the heck of it.:D When my favorite was Tweety Bird, she favored Hello Kitty. But both our favorite colors are pink and purple.

After our session at the stationery store, we would wait for our respective school service. Or she would go with me to our service first, and vice versa. And though we parted barkadas, our friendship is that strong, that we still see each other, in every class, or get together sometime.

And now, she's all grown up, and ready to face the challenges of being a wife.

After five years of being with Mellard, she finally found her happy ever after. And we are just so happy that her search for true love did not go in vain. So I wish them lots of babies, an unending love and more years together. :D

*******************************

Now the story about the wedding is, I caught the bride's bouquet. And you know the usual stuff they say when a single lady catches the flowers are usually the next to marry. I don't actually believe in superstitions, but I respect them. Like getting out of trouble and such. So here's the funny story:

Before the commentator asks the "single ladies" to go up front and catch the bouquet, I had a little dilemma under our table. My sandals, for uncanny reasons, decided to snap at me and leave me, shoeless. Already panicked by the situation (and yeah, do I ever resist a photo opportunity), got my balls up and walked up with my already "given up" sandals, just to fit in. I actually think losers are those who do not stand up in the midst of a crisis. So to not be a loser, means getting my ass up there and face whatever humiliation it might bring.

After the photographs were taken, I situated myself at the back of the girls who are ready and eager to catch the bouquet. I had two things in mind, being spared from the 'tradition' and get out of the center of attention because for crying out loud, I have a broken sandals to think about first. After a few seconds, I was surprised to see the two girls in front of me who skidded at the floor to get the bouquet. And because they were already rolling at the floor, my hands, that were spread out at that time, surprisingly caught the flower, and before I knew it, I was being dragged at the center stage to sit while the groom tosses the bouquet o the single guys.

Two of my friends already told me that it was just like in movies, that maybe its destiny telling me that I will be the next in line. Okay, please stop pressuring me okay? Ive had enough for the day. Please don't tolerate the situation anymore. Its just a coincidence. And yeah, I'm crossing all my fingers that IT IS JUST A COINCIDENCE FOR NOW. Maybe in a few years, but this year, definitely not.

Though their wedding is one of the best I have attended. Simple, but definitely special in its own way. And I can see in their faces that they are really happy to start their lives together :D

*******************************

So there, I think Ive already said a lot. I have to rest. Finally.

Smoochies everyone!

Bella? Bella? Under my Umbrella. hehehe

ahahaha. So true! :D

I'm a Bella! I found out through TwilightersAnonymous.com. Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

You are observant, diplomatic and often aim to please. You are unaware of your attractiveness and despite being uncomfortable with any form of attention, people enjoy your company. You can be impatient, stubborn and headstrong, but you are true to your word and mature for your age, often taking care of your family and enjoying a good book over chatting with girlfriends on the phone.

The Perfect Definition of Joining the Bandwagon

OMG. Even Perez Hilton wrote about this in his blog. Good luck sating mga Filipinos if we could ever show our face to the Hollywood. Oh, some of the comments are really offensive. I dont know, Im not anti-Shaina and Rayver bnor ABS-CBN, but dont think this will work out. Why dont they just make a typical story, where originality exists. Im sure there are lot of brooding writers around. But a Twilight ripoff? Cmon now, panu na ang YABANG ng PINOY?

Anyway, Im a FIlipino and a victim of a copycat, so I guess nothing's new here. Sadly..

****************************

Yesterday, Hon found an excuse to pig-out again. Went to MOA to buy a wedding gift for Mellard and Maro on Monday, and Hon treated at Sakae Sushi again. And I was in sushi heaven. Maybe because this time, we didnt have to rush. So I enjoyed their conveyor belt. It was my bestfriend that day. haha.

And I wanna thank him for my super pretty pink earphones. It wasnt actually on my wish-list, because its on my to-buy list, but he got it for me, so there. Happy happy. :D

On the other hand, Im really excited of our Iloilo Trip. Psyched. And I wanna thank Kath for my new backpack. hehehehe. I am starting to pack right now. Though I have to do this another thing first for a friend. Something I should definitely slave on tomorrow.

Went to Tutuban earlier. Have to buy new shoes for Ate Lory's wedding. And for like five minutes, I found the pair I can use for that day. Nothing so fancy, after all, its just for a day. lol.

******************************

Im enjoying myDSL. hahaha. Im sorry, its just that in this very hectic season, thank God I can easily upload my stuff.

Nothing goes here na. I have to do some movie marathon later. If my biological clock permits me. hahaha. Muah!

If He's Gonna Be Aro..

Then he's definitely gonna be one hell of a hot hot VAMPIRE!

..And now Im wondering whether I'd still be smitten with Edward. LOL! Malandi.

But his features are so angelic. I'm not sure if he's fit to be with the Volturi. Oh, I don't know. Guess I'll have to wait for New Moon. And Taylor Lautner's gonna be replaced by half-Filipino Michael Copon for Jacob's role. Not that I dont want Taylor, but Bella looks bigger than him. He's supposed to be a werewolf, for geez sakes.

As for Copon, I am supporting his (hopefully) casting. Not because he's Pinoy, but because he looks just like Taylor. And I mean a better version, at that. :D

****************************

Work is kinda lazy today. No one really wants to ride up their saddles. We all do our own thing. I only did a report. One measly report that I could finish in five minutes. Imagine that. And I'm not in a mood for anything. My boss even has this other work downstairs so our meeting couldnt start yet. It is so frustrating.

Gotta go. Muah!

Of Christmas Rush and Christmas Munch

Ive been a grinch these past few days because my Christmas Shopping isnt done yet. I was supposed to finish them all tomorrow, and buy a gift for Maro's wedding, try to do that something I promised for the 29th and wrap officemate's gifts. But our parents dragged us to go to Cavite for Ate Red's son's baptism, then met Hon for dinner at MOA. Plus I got up late this morning, all uniforms unironed and all my plans for the morning, ruined.

So tonight, I'll pull up another all-nighter to wrap the remaining gifts, go to the mall to buy the other remaining gifts, have good night's rest to be hyper over the holidays, clean the house and maybe greet friends who are not in the Philippines. On the remaining days, I have to rest for Maro's wedding, take care of relatives who are going to our house this Christmas, plan on what to bring to Hon's house on the 25th and prepare my things for our Iloilo Trip.

This, by far, has been the most hectic Christmas in my whole life. And without an ample time to prepare for the holidays. Even my 24th is so preoccupied. Sadly.

**********************************

Went to Paskuhan last Friday to meet Nina and give my gift to Avi. I didnt get the chance to see the fireworks because I was late. Then Saturday night, went to Xzeno's Christmas Night where only four of us were present. Good thing I was still perky.

So that's it. Im so busy as a bee. So I'll keep this one short.

See me on the holidays! You know you love me. :D

Hail to Madonna's Era and Of New Moon Date

Before I talk about our uber cool Christmas Party, I got so excited at what Ive seen in Yahoo.

link: http://ph.news.yahoo.com/ap/20081217/ten-film-twilight-sequel-5e343d7.html

On November 20, 2009, New Moon will be shown worldwide and will be directed by Chris Weitz, the one who brought us The Golden Compass. :D

Though on the other hand, I'm not so sure if I will enjoy this movie or not. See, when I read New Moon, I feel that the book makes you wait too long for major scenes to really happen. And I was irritated to hell with Jacob. I dont know, its just that he's so clingy and everything. But anyway, since this is a movie, and will be condensed to two-hours or so, I'm crossing fingers that it would work fine.

**********************************

So anyway, we held our Christmas Party at the roofdeck of Citystate Bank at Shaw Blvd last night. And I believe that it might be the best party we (or they) ever had. Almost everyone participated to dress up, be colorful and groove through the sounds of 80's. The stage that I made, managed to look like a colorful jukebox, intentionally. Thanks to my partner in crime, Mitch, who helped me buy the things I needed and helped me do the actual layout. :D

Oh, and I joined a dance contest. And its something very unlikely of me. Singing, I would gladly grab the mike, but dancing is another issue. I have left feet, actually. My hips never sways, or so I think. But last night, I did and Im not sure if Im gonna be able to do that again, and gain the respect of the people at the office. haha.

Sadly, we did not win. But it was hell of a party, so them appreciating my efforts, is really worth it. And I have too many goofy pictures with our President. XD. Sayang lang because I didnt get the chance to take a picture with "crush". OMG, this is so high school. But Im not that sad, and its just a little crush, not like I faint everytime we touch. hehehehe. Kinanta. lol.

And my boss won Star of the Night. hehehhe. Coolness.

****************************

Gotta go. I need rest. But with Paskuhan at UST tomorrow and Xzeno's Xmas Party on Saturday, I doubt I'll ever get it. hahah.

Smoochies!

Happy Dappy..

My Dad's home already. Yep, the reason why I havent blogged for days. (Like its really the reason. hahaha) But since that was partly the case, I am really happy these days, despite being sick.

He brought me this:

Never mind that my brother got hold of the new camera already, but this is still a 3.2MP phone, so Im settled. :D After all, I'm wishing for a DSLR now. And Ive already let him see one. SO hopefully, when he goes back abroad, he could fulfill my request. hehehe. Crossing fingers now. :D

*******************************

My Christmas list, on the other hand is semi-completed. I just need to buy a few pairs of this and that. And we went to the World Bazaar at World Trade Center last Friday. I really enjoyed it. Even saw Nene Tamayo on the PBB booth, but I didnt buy anything there. My favorite was the Precious Moments store. And because they went all the way from Aklan pa.

Anyhoo, because of my addiction to dolls and stuffed toys, Hon Hon bought me the mermaid and schoolgirl doll and they were both so adorable. He said its gonna be gift number 1. His gift number 2, was the one Ive requested for him to buy, two jelly lenses! Yay! :D And Im'a love it because its for my fone. nyahaha.

********************************

Its gonna be our Christmas Party on Wednesday. We havent practiced for the dance yet. harhar. Goodluck to us. Not that we would wanna win or something, but I plan to make every Christmas Parties special. Due to future plans..if it'll push thru. :D

Anyhoo, I have to go. 2 parties more.. Hugs! :D

Uy, Uy, Uy!

Buhay na ka pala? At aba, ang latest news, NAKIKITWILIGHT KA PA! hahahahaha. Sabi ko sayo you cant really hide from me eh. And until I couldnt get a single fact that you keep doing things behind my back, hindi ako magsasalita.

Nga pala, nabasa mo ba yung book? Baka naman may hyfaluting words ka na naman jan? Ay oo, pati nga pala yung friendster at multiply mo no? Tungkol din sa Twilight. Grabe na talaga. Nung una, Harry Potter, tapos pose sa pictures, tapos blairbands, ngayon may bago ka na namang nakopya. Alam mo bubunutin ko na talaga yung mata mo. Promise. Ang ganda ganda mo kasi eh. *vomits until my breakfast turns to blue"

After my months of hiatus, nagwawarfreak na naman ako. Kasi naman pig, maliit lang ang cyberspace, nakikipagsiksikan ka pa. Bakit ba kasi ang daming pwedeng awayin eh. Tapos ang tanda mo na pero immature ka pa rin. FYI, di bagay sa yo promise. Andami pa kong nirerecruit na pagtawanan ka. Kaya awat na. Ang dami mo namang pwedeng gawin sa life mo eh. Mag bake ka ng cake tapos gumulong ka dun. Baka dun gumanda ka. hahahaha.

Tsaka dami ko ng hate mails sayo eh. Di ka pa rin nagtanda. O baka naman paurong yung edad mo? Ganun ba ang pig years? Tutal gusto mo maging vampire, okay lang. Pero kasi sila Edward, beautiful vampires. Tsaka sa novels ni Stephenie Meyer, naggoglow sila. Alam mo sayo, mantika yung naggoglow eh. Kahit yung Amazon covens magaganda sila. Nabasa mo ba yun? Anu? Mukhang hindi. Tapos naging super fan ka nalang bigla nu? Wow ang saya. Kelan mo na natuklasan yung Twilight? Nung nauso na sa buong Pilipinas? Hahahaha. Yaya, youre such a loser talaga.

***************************

Yun lang. theraphy session lang. Minsan kasi andamin daming trivial things ka na matutuklasan sa everyday life. hahahaha.

Byebye boar!

Wish a Wishlist!

Since everyone has their wishlist already, I know Im so inggitera, so Im posting one myself too. :D And lately, I saw nifty nifty things. :D

1. Quik Pod- For people who doesnt know what are these, let me show you a visual:

No, I dont want the camera, nor the Tower of Pisa, I just wanted the tripod. Well, its an easy to use Tripod, without leaving your camera anywhere. Plus its so easy to use in my camwhoring moments. haha.

2. Jelly Lenses- This is not pimp my camera show, but Im getting fond of this another tiny thing. I wanted a fish eye camera, but this is the closest thing to it, without having to scan pictures and stuff.

It only costs 500PHP. Plugging http://inthepink.multiply.com I ordered the fisheye lens. If someone wants to buy me one, I'd like the heart frame or vignette lens. :D

3. Gossip Girl Books!- And I only need the three remaining books, Only In Your Dreams, Would I Lie To You and Dont You Forget About Me.

Of course, the much-loved TV series is very much different from the book. But I still love Blair, Serena, Dan and Nate. :D

4. Trench Coat-like Dresses- Nowadays, this is very uso. And I want something like this in White too!

Okay, why I love it? Because Filipinos couldnt possibly wear trench coats just like that. Since the weather doesnt really permit us to get super cold, these dresses are the closest thing to it. Plus you get to have the girly-girl vibe.

5. Flats- any brand will do!

The one above is from Skechers. But this is something like my Mom's. But nonetheless, I thrive for flats. It makes me move freely. And I wouldnt have to complain to Hon Hon that my feet sores when we go on a very long walk.

6. Trip to HongKong

I know this seems impossible right now, but this is a someday, maybe trip. Sana lang. :D

7. Sony Alpha 300 DSLR

This may look like your ordinary (as if we could call them as ORDINARY) DSLR, but a whopping 24 Megapixel is enough for you to go ga-ga over this cam. I want one. But, I have to shell a thousand bucks for this. And the thing is, do I have that hemp sum? hahaha.

8. World Peace

In a land where most of the things are material, we all still need something intangible but real. And were by a long shot to having world peace, but at least were trying right?

***********************************

Last night, we went to the Taste of the City 3 at Taguig City. I never really thought that there could be such an event where so many participating restaurants would shell out for booths, their food and even excitement for a night. And all of us were so full after the day.

And since were at it, Hon finally completed his stickers to get his Starbucks 2009 Planner. He got the black one. I know he's happy. But I feel sad because there's no excuse for me to go to Starbucks for now. Its just the excitement for coffees and planners get into me. haha.

**************************************

Have to go now. Too many reports before the holidays.

XOXO.

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

Someday...Maybe

I waited for the dark sky to smile at me, but instead, it frowned. Bad Jupiter-Venus and Moon. Oh well, I guess next time. haha.

****************************

Everyone is posting their wish list already. And I'm so inggitera. But I'll do that some other time. I don't have too many material things that I want for now. Just Bliss. Period.

Something happened today. I thought it was just me being crazy, but I realized that it isnt the case. After all, I have posted this issue many times, just to ease whatever's building up inside me. Its part-rage, but I don't wanna classify it as that because I still considered her a friend.

...And then today happened.

My boyfriend said that I have been missing a lot since I got back with her. That might be the case sometimes, but Ive been shrugging the thought since were, friends. And I feel as if I could balance being her friend, a good girlfriend to Pat, a fair friend to my other friends, and a good daughter to my family. She had one of my biggest parts. Bestfriends kami eh, so why not give her that?

So now, your means of telling me to move on with my life has become more tangible. You wanted this. You started this tiff. Sawang sawa na rin akong manuyo. Maybe this time, I could also focus on my other friends. Friends who doesnt tell you how shallow your friendship may be or people who do not always test your loyalty. I am not saying that I am the greatest friend in this world, but I'm done. This is the last straw.

Good luck nalang sayo. Marami kang friends diba? Yung isa nagpahamak sa buong section, yung isa nagpapayabangan kayo, yung isa may sariling mundo. Go on. After all, I have to break free from always being the good girl. Come to think of it, thanks for making me stop being so goody-goody.

Excuse me while I try to step into my light. Maybe there's a purpose for this. And thanks for making get out of this toxic relationship with you.

***********************************

Have to go and compose myself. I should be up for this long and bumpy ride.

Twilight Madness Continues...

Finally! Hon and I saw Twilight at the big screen! Yay!

After much contemplation of free schedules, and through the goodness of Ayala-powered sureseats, our 2:15-4:15PM yesterday was filled with adrenaline as we see Isabella "Bella" Swan and Edward Cullen's forbidden love evolve, with the consciousness, of her, being human and him, a vampire.

I wouldn't be doing a review here since this is not a page for it. Hahaha.

As a surprise, my Honey bought me a Twilight Illustrated Movie Guide. The first time I saw it, I was thinking of whether to buy it or not. Its pricey kasi. And the stingy in me says I wouldn't buy a 700 worth coffee table book to ogle at Edward's face. But since he knows me better, he surprised me yesterday with it. Awww..

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After the movie, went to Divi for Christmas shopping. At shempre, I still havent completed my list. I bought 2. Sa laki ng Divi. Cmon naman Ria.

And bad luck stroked me din. My ATM is lost. I just found out when I got home. Good thing that is on a payroll system and our bank's a sister company so I got the replacement today. Thank you God.

***********************************

I have another event coming up on Thursday..

Sir Jun gave up these tickets for a major pig-out, eating high end goodies. :O

Good luck nalang sa pag-abay sa December 29 at January 2. hahahaha.

**************************

Speaking of abays, my cousin texted me last Saturday that I will be her bridesmaid at her wedding. I told her no at first because I feel as if I havent enough time to pull myself a gown for the event. But she said she'll take care of it, so I have nada choice. Guess I really have to stop binging for a while.

.......

.......

HOPEFULLY!

*******************************

Gotta go! Spread the Twilight Madness! :D
