November 25, 2012 - My Sunday in photos | My family and I also watched Breaking Dawn part II earlier at SM North the Block and dayum, words can’t explain how overwhelmed I am after seeing it. I just can’t. ‘Twas really epic. I loved it heaps. Twilight fan? Well, I’m guilty in here.  

All photos not mine. Grabbed it all on kaye’s facebook.

Last night, I went to my highschool friends post birthday celebration somewhere in timog. It was fun to see them all. A lot has changed, physically, but they’re still the same old, same old. We did catch up on each other’s lives and did tease each other about the past. It was fun. I missed them heaps. 

We also went to Mercato Centrale at Bonifacio Global City around 12:30am to eat, chill and unwind (because my other friend is having problems with her lovelife). There were so many food choices, but I can’t think of anything to buy so I ended up not buying anything. My eyes were already full just by looking at all those food. We also did had a just-for-fun photoshoot using my friend’s dslr. So yea, we were basically just trippin’. 

And then after spending an hour and a half on the sidewalk, we went back to timog and went karaoke-ing for an hour then we finally called it a day. I went home around 4am. So yea. It was really fun. I missed my girlfriends to bits! Till next time, then? ♡

First photo not mine. Grabbed it on kaye's facebook. And oh, my hair still stinks of stale cigarette smoke.. (ーー゛)

November 14, 2012 - My friends and I went to MOA the other day and it wasn’t really planned. I was at home that time when they texted me and since I had nothing better to do that day, I decided to come. It was really unexpected because first of all, MOA is pretty far from where we were that day. Second, the only reason why they wanted to go there was to chill. I was like, srsly? Go all the way to MOA just to freakin’ chill? So yea, when we got there we went straight to the sea side and basically, just chill. HAHAHA. Omo~ my friends are really are random. But I gotta love them! (*´▽`*)

August 31, 2012 - Yesterday, the STI celebrated its 29th anniversary at Enchanted Kingdom. All STIers were invited to come and join and so, we―my friends and I―did join to the said event. We went there around 11am up until 10pm, but our ride-all-you-can tickets were effective around 3pm, so we stayed there roaming around, taking photos and all that. The Enchanted Kingdom has a total of 19 rides, but I only rode 4―Anchors Away, EKstreme Tower, Dodgem (Bumper cars), and Grand Carousel. Yes, unfortunately I didn’t get to ride in the Wheel of Fate because the queue line was really long. Also, I didn’t feel like riding the Rio Grande Rapids, one of the best rides of EK where you can get really wet with dirty water (thrilling huh? but I’m a killjoy, I know.) and I was also about to ride the Space Shuttle for the first time but it was closed early. Boohoo! Anyhoo, you needed to be in the queue line for about an hour or less just to get in the rides, so it was really time consuming. It also poured pretty hard, so they closed some of the rides due to bad weather, but it reopened after the rain stopped. And the best part of it all, was that Gloc9 had a mini concert in one of the tents there. He sang 8 songs, I think and dayum, he was so great and funny. I’m a fan of his and his music. All in all, I had fun even though EK was really jampacked yesterday, but still. Aim high STI! A nice day to end my August. More photos here. :)

Here a video of his new song, Sirena.

June 23, 2012 - We celebrated my brother’s 21st and my cousin’s 25th post birthday party yesterday at my aunt’s house in Fairview. Many came, despite the distance from their homes to the venue. There were alot of food too which I think made me gain pounds. We also had a photobooth, a projector and a videoke set up and yes, I did sang my lungs out. All in all, it was fun day. :)
