EVERYDAY: Gringo with J1


Because sometimes all a girl needs is a quiet talk with her friends, a beer in their hand and some frankness and laughter combined.

EVERYDAY: COFFEE PROJECT


I needed to vent out my frustration with strama and she needed someone to blame for the temporary closing of her salon = coffee is the key and a good interiors at that.

Finally managed to try out something new after a while.

Happy to see you, SB! Hoping to see the others soon.

EVERYDAY: ASSUMPTION GIRLS


Some may mock. Some might get pissed. Many would say that assumptionists are intimidating. I say, that’s not bad at all. It’s not our problem. People worthy of talking to, people you might learn from should intimidate you. Proud to be an Assumptionista. ❤

A quick date with my love before the night starts.

20170224_21170020170224_211650

Where we spent waiting for our grades, where we seek refuge from the professors.

20170224_21212520170224_21213820170224_212146

Lounge – where some of our breaks happen, where we ogle on crushes, where we cram our assignments, where we hide from professors, where we photocopy cases, where I first sold my first 20  meals, etc…

With Sir Ricky, the business dean.

Late dinner with my entrep loves. ❤

EVERYDAY: J1 CHRISTMAS 2016


I’ve been MIA for quite some time but it’s everybody’s most awaited holiday. I won’t pass on this of course! And just like everyone, there are several parties and get together’s.

First on the list? My College Friends. We booked this as early as we can because we all know how hard it is to match a schedule during this time of the month.

Where? Cafe Naya at The Palace Pool Club.

(Panda – Pam – Panda.)  (Janna – Jude – Mark – Jaja – Nicole – Janna)

What did we get? Panda got a Athletic Shoes, Pam got a GC (which is a gem but no thought), Jude got a Short Sleeves Polo, Mark got a watch organizer, Nicole got a Happy Skin Lip Set, Jaja got her wish and I received a White Polo Dress.

We all received what we wished. We also transferred to get some drinks – but we can’t help but give in to our slowly aging bodies. We finished early.

Thank you for the gifts, J1 Loves!

Merry Christmas! 🙂

 

EVERYDAY: SENOR POLLO


It was just the 5 of us – turned to 6, then 8 – then 10 by midnight. Happy to see everyone again. 😀

EAT BF: SANWICHEESE


Banapple opened a younger sibling – Sandwicheese. It is always located beside it and the ambiance had the same look and feel. The Branch was a bit small but customers of Sandwicheese can opt to sit inside Banapple. It’s an order-at-the-counter type.

20160514_18195120160514_182035

I, being myself wanted to try the Grilled Cheese Cheese Sandwicheese but chose not to because it’s my go-to-safe order. I also wanted to try the Drippin or Cheesy Roastbeef Sanwicheese – and I don’t know why I did not.

20160514_18350920160514_183812

And we ordered the same – meh. Chicken Caesar Sandwicheese for Php 170. The sandwich is good. The chicken is huge – I was only able to finish half of it but still felt very full after.

20160514_18343220160514_183454

Cheese and Jalapeno Boulders for Php 70.

20160514_183402_001

Thank you for bringing me here, SB. :)) Katips next.

EVERYDAY: J1


Seldom does anyone arrive on time. About 2 hours late because of traffic in Salcedo — in just one fucking Leviste Street.

20160415_202304

And I even postponed myself from eating snack because of this dinner – but this 2 hours delayed made me a hungry bear.

Sinigang na Hipon – Sisig – Calamares – Crab Rice and Seafood Rice and some beers.

EVERYDAY: EVIOTA WEDDING


We have 4 babies in the block, but this is the first wedding. And we couldn’t get any more excited. 😀

As I was telling my other blockmate during the wedding, it’s really nice to see the bride marry such a simple, sentimental, sweet, sensitive and family oriented guy like Errol. I even remember the bride recounting how difficult it is for her to accept the groom’s living and walking past.

20160318_201157

Meet the block: Mich, RJ, Nicole, Gellie, Nix, Boyfriend, Pam, Jaja, Jude, Myself, Shek, KC, Errol and Alyssa.

It’s nice how everyone is gathered for her special day.

20160318_21534420160318_21501920160318_214825

Congrats, Mr and Mrs. Errol! 🙂 We’ll see you next with your little one. 🙂

Merry Christmas from the TFs. 😀

EVERYDAY: J1 CHRISTMAS AT CENTERSTAGE


I’ll bet my life that everyone has experienced Christmas Traffic, right?
And how 31 Days of December is not even close to being enough for Family Reunions and
Get together of friends. 4 Fridays, 4 Saturdays and 4 Sundays seems too short.
IMG_8563 IMG_8565
So, My Blockmates and I decided to have our yearly Christmas Party on the First Saturday of December.
After my class, I met up with Jude and Nicole at Powerplant and proceeded to
Centerstage Makati in Jupiter Street.
IMG_8571
Nicole and I started the earth-shaking singing.
IMG_8582
Pam gave Panda a Gift Certificate at Mercury Drug – weird? It’s actually on her wishlist. It’s for her mom as you know, she just got out from a 2 month long hospitalization from St. Luke’s after she had Aneurysm.
IMG_8581
Jude gave Pam her wish – a Pink Earphones.
IMG_8580
Nicole gave Jude a Powerbank.

Jaja gave Nicole the Cotton On Travel Toiletry Bag.

Kenneth gave me my Loreal Foundation
I gave Kenneth a Cotton On Long Sleeves.

Panda gave Jaja
IMG_8588 IMG_8589
Afterwhich, I asked them if we can all go see a Beer House – which has been on my Bucket List for quite a long time already.
So we went straight to the nearest pub town of Half Naked Girls. No one is allowed to take a picture so I’ll leave it to your imaginations.

The important thing is  —  I got to cross something out on my Bucket List! 😀
Merry Christmas, My Loves. True Friends. :)))

EVERYDAY: Gift Hunting at Cuenca Bazaar


It’s my first time at Cuenca Bazaar. Every year, My friends or Mom drag me to World Trade Center for the Christmas Bazaar.
Anyway, this year I went with Nicole and Ate Twinx and her officemate, Ellen – who is so funny, BTW. Don’t be deceived of how old she looks.

IMG_8425 IMG_8428

After an exhausting day for our feet and a hellish day for my wallet, we went to Barrio Fiesta inside Ayala Alabang to eat our 5pm lunch.

IMG_8410

We also took the time out to have our nails done at Coco Nails. You should try it here: they offer tea, juice or water and a macaroon too. 😀

IMG_8404

Broke but happy as fuck!

EVERYDAY: Tender Bobs & Barcino with my Blockmates


The other friends kept mentioning how rude we are for not inviting all of the class every time we go out.
This is the actual proof. 13 girls of Entrep Class, 9 said yes, 5 came. WOW. Definite proof of why.

IMG_8489 IMG_8491 IMG_8492

We had dinner at Tender Bobs and a drink or two at Barcino.

IMG_8505 IMG_8499

I miss everyone!

EVERYDAY: Laboracay version in the city


We weren’t notified that everyone should be in Boracay. Oops. Not, it’s not just Boracay. It’s Laboracay – the long weekend feast for Labor Day.

My eyes grew greener and greener and the Monstrous Green Eyed Janna appeared. I am desperate to be in the water. Nicole and Ate Twinx picked me up while it was drizzling already. We were afraid that Mr. Sun won’t show its rays. But then, when we arrived, it’s sunny slash cloudy.

We played all afternoon with my god daughter, jia and took some pictures.

So this is our Laboracay day. Next year, we’ll be welcoming summer at Boracay. A sweet revenge.

EVERYDAY: Interview with my College Prof


For my finals, we were tasked to do a video about Ateneo’s Core Values. Specifically, Pursuit of Excellence was given to us.
My group mates and I decided to interview people from different industries. So I had the advantage of doing an interview for a foundation.

FRIENDS: Iggybabes, my loves


FRIENDS: Iggybabes, my loves

To the person who was the easiest to talk to when I got transferred in the Dorm. Easiest would mean, we want the aircon switched on at the same hours, she helps in my papers – she’s a good writer, she doesn’t blow her hair dry so I can sleep until 10, she wants the same food ordered, she makes me laugh.
I missed youuuu. 😀
