Shoe Incident #2

So, I was on my way to work.. and it's the clumsy-me again!
Another addition to my embarrassing moments' list~ lol.
Tonight, I had my cinderella moment.. and I didn't know what to do! I almost left my shoe in the streets. My gulay! If that happens, I'll die! exaggeee?! of course not! lol. I'll just be missing half of my shoe and I might be walking barefoot in the streets of Ayala.. Disastrous! Thank goodness to kuya driver, he stopped and I was saved! woot! hihi.. so just laugh about it!^_^

And so my night went as normal as before except for the rerouting in Ayala that I didn't know about. Another shocker! where am I supposed to go unboard???

*Funny little things in life make things effortlessly interesting! Try to appreciate some and you'll never be lonely!*

The Actual Christmas

After spending the Christmas Eve with family and extended family on our mother’s side, it’s now time to spend it on daddy’s family side. Lots of food. What else to expect? I guess we really are a family in love with food. Hihi.
We sneaked out for coffee with Kuya Joseph and Ate Didith and met Ate in Starbucks, Eastwood.

Hmm.. As usual, what can I expect with Ate… *smile nalang* no comment. Hehe..
Saw Marc there too. Pleasant to see him. J

Hours before Christmas Eve

Christmas on a weekend. Hmm.. Perhaps it was the ideal timing but for me it’s not. It makes my December a lot shorter!
Mother said, we were to attend mass early tonight because we were set to offer for the mass. And so, we prepped up for it and anticipated the night mass. Usually on a Christmas day, we attend mass early in the morning instead of the anticipated mass on Christmas eve. So this is what happened that made our night! We, meaning Aira, Lola and I, came first to the church. We saw the signage “reserved for offerors”, knowing that we were asked to offer that night we sat in it and there goes this old people of the church sarcastically asking us and saying that the seats were meant for the “offerors”. Well, we told them so that we were set to offer for the mass that night. Another question in line was, “Anong offer nyo?” and as I thought, do offers need to be audited before it was offered? Then another old lady came in the scene asking the first one why are we seated in the reserved seats, and she was like, “Sabi nila mag-ooffer daw sila e.” Watch the attitude Missus! Mind that you are serving in the church. Tsk. What pissed my sister and I was the tone and line of questioning. Duh?! As if we were so desperate for the seats! How shameful for the church! Anyway, we left the seats and either way I wouldn’t want to be seated right next to those.. uhmm.. How should I put it? Gracious servants of God! How mockingly shameful..?! Lola stayed because she needs it. We ended the mass quite peacefully and then here comes another issue.. whew! What a Christmas eve to go through. Not quite a fun night.

Another Christmas Party

The last one! Deals Christmas party at Shakey’s. I did confirm for the sake of supporting the event, but honestly, if I were to choose on my own will.. hmm.. I have second thoughts in coming. Hehe. It’s not that I don’t want to but because it’s in the middle of the week and I need to come early for that where I know I won’t be enjoying myself instead I’ll just have my meal and off to work again. Good thing I was on leave the day before this and I was on sick leave the day before my scheduled leave. I was not in shape last Monday that I had to go on sick leave. My tummy was upset, I felt bloated and it was aching very badly. What’s worst? I don’t know why?? T.T
The party was nice, I was late because I intended to be late knowing I’ll be meeting with Joseph who’s more often than not is LATE. Well, nothing seems changed back from whenever. Lol. We arrived in the middle of everything, did not participate in the games and had my peaceful meal. I know! What a party pooper I am! Haha.

Tous Les Jours

Arriving home from the traffic. We had dinner and we dug in this lovely cake! So pretty and yummy! Loving it!

I’ll make sure to visit their shop in Seoul on February!

말하기 대회

Tuesday, I am on leave for the sole purpose of attending the speech contest in KCC as promised with my classmates. But then it changed quite a bit because of the “sudden” family moviedate. The plan was to watch the first screening of the day of Mission Impossible then off I go to my commitment. Guess what?  It didn’t happen as planned! Oh how I dislike it when things goes that way. It messes the schedule and my plans which is unacceptable but then patience my dear. Patience. Hay. It should’ve been fun without the bad vibes but I can’t help but feel bad because they knew my plans earlier. And then there was this instance that Ate needs to buy something and then there goes ‘We saw the fondue pot, bilin natin mommy. Tignan mo bilis.’ And there goes forever! Ate is so fickle what to buy as a gift.. grr.. not fun at all especially if you are in a hurry and she knows it! And then my mood wasn’t so good now with the traffic again and the circumstances. Argh.. Hopeless!!! I did drop by and give my gifts and that’s it because they are waiting for me down in the parking lot. And knowing mom’s and Aira’s temper I can’t stay any longer than 30 minutes at most. =( Epic fail, however, it was always good to see friends. It made my mood lighter. 

Congrats to Ailyn-eonni for winning the third place! Congrats to my donsaeng-deul for doing such a great job! Awesome bunch of new friends. Hope to see them soon!

awful day!

December 17th! so frustrating!

Scheduled events of the day:

1pm - Graduation ceremony @ KCC
5pm - TR's Themed Christmas party @ PICC
6pm - Tita Lou's 60th birthday celebration @ Valle Verde Country Club
8pm - Marc's Birthday celebration @ Distillery, Eastwood
11pm or 12am - PEO team after party @ Republiq, Resorts World

Okay. Define BUSY? haha.. and so it goes. I had picked my priority events of the day. Didn't sleep after work for the graduation ceremony only to be stranded! hell~ just to be STRANDED??? I so hate it. I hate that I wasted my time and efforts for nothing because of that dang TRAFFIC and RAIN! and those hell of useless cabs! This is so frustrating to death. The only good thing was I was not alone stranded for hours waiting for rescue! Thank goodness I was with Aira.

At first, I could still cheer myself up. Had fun playing with the cam. Lots of mobile photos, but at the end of it all... nothing has changed... I missed alot and I can't do anything about it even if I wanted to. We're stuck and I had no choice but to suck it up! and hell I did. I'm pissed and frustrated and can't help but cry. Not fun at all. I was tired and sad. What can I do. T.T I'm tired of waiting, I'm frustrated with what's happening.. a bit annoyed with.... and I'm done arguing with my mother..

Just to pass time and entertain myself.. people watching is the best thing to do. ^_^

candid Aya..♥

still raining...

Time for gifts!

I am on a tight budget since I’m booked for Seoul on February. And so, I have only a handful of people to give gifts. Teammates in the office, KCC classmates and good friends.. My idea was just a sort of mug/glass with cover in it. And then it became bag of sweets. And then when I dropped by Japan Home Center I saw these whisky glasses and thought of another idea. Why not put the sweets in it making the glass the gift wrapper? And there it goes. Bought a dozen of whisky glasses, Ferrero Rocher’s, Marks & Spencer’s candies and chocolates, and voila! This was how it looked like. J

Glad they liked it! Happy holidays!

PEO christmas dinner

Time for Christmas parties and dinenrs. As for today, it was the scheduled team dinner at The Balcony Gastro Pub. The ambience was not so for me. hehe.. I wonder why? It seems okay, but I feel a bit uncomfy. Anyhow, we had dinner and need to be back for work before 10pm. It was not as awesome as last year's but it was not so bad too. I came back for work sobber! hahaha.. I'm happy with what I got from our kris kringle and super excited for February to approach! yiii!!! few snaps below with my teammates.

No comments on the following events.. Maybe that's another reason why I....  hehehe..

another Final Exam coming up!

The ever busy December... another added pressure is my upcoming exam. *toinks*
This term was quite a challenge for me. Work plus everyday 2 hr-class.. hmm.. is a bit too much for me with the fact that December is quite a busy season for me in terms of work and social life. "100% on effort" from my part is impossible at this time of the year. Choosing wisely and prioritizing is the name of the season. Aigoo! I'm not confident with my exams too. I didn't absorb much of the lessons, got 3 more absences, no enough sleep because of work and what else? woot! I'm full of excuses.. tsktsk! haha.. But then I know I tried it. I finished the term and did it. n_n

The day didn't roll up as expected. First, I swapped leaves with Eloi, so I was on leave and she'll be on leave on December 16th. Unexpected but also a good thing since I know I'll need the rest time after the draining finals. hihi. And so this was what happened...

Bloody exam?! literally difficult and sonsaengnim is really strict! Didn't expect that coming since our basic 1 was quite really BASIC! literally! hahaha.. And that anybody without background can really do well. I think? haha.. They really raised the bars a few notches up and that's really not easy to adapt with. The test was difficult but the experience was really nice. Fun to find new friends and meet lovely people. I'll definitely miss them bigtime! Now, just thinking about it makes me feel sad. Anyway, there's still two days to spend with them, graduation ceremony on December 17th (another busy Saturday for me) and on December 20th, the speech contest (another VL for me! wiii!). ^_^

Back to the exams, the written was a bit complicated for me, I merely understand most of it but not all of it. The questions were tricky. I hope I got some right, enough to pass. The listening portion is okay for me. The problem was, SPELLING! haha.. I'm poor with it. Those words that "sounds-alike" but spelled differently was super difficult for me.. T.T huhu..  And finally, orals.. *brain hemorrhage* and that's it. It's all history. hahaha! Disaster! lol.

After the disastrous finals, I had dinner 우리 친구들과 함게 the korean way. Oh no?! I have nothing to eat from the menu. hahaha... but I did alright. ^_^ I saw meat! and there it goes! I had a full tummy and a fun night with friends! It was hot because of the grill, but it was nice and interesting.. lots of Korean by the way. The resaturant was full packed when we arrived. I think it was located somewhere in Makati Ave. It was pleasant and nice. And we're noisy! surely noisy! hahaha

However, after the dinner.... The traffic? Oh the traffic was at it's WORST! December, aside from being a busy season, it's also the season of worst traffic ever! Everyday is traffic, but today is at its worst! er.. my heels.. my poor shoes.. We walked a lot since cars ain't moving it's better to walk I guess~ lol! It was a day full of bits of everything. All in all, it was interestingly fun.. ^_^ hope to see you soon again friends!♥

Nightlights (Manila)

It has started! Christmas is approaching and I am occupied with a lot of things to do.
I worry that I couldn't pass my language class, I worry that  mom is getting mad at me for booking back to Seoul.. I worry that I didn't do better today, and the list goes on.... What will December be for me? It's yet for me to find out. It's only starting and yet I can feel I'll be hell in a busy schedule ahead.. I don't feel Christmassy yet.. I do wish to feel so though.. I feel so off the radar.. I can't seem to find the excitement of the season.. T.T

Thursday, December 1, 2011


Hello Korea once again?!!!! can't wait.. and I can't express how much I like it!!!
not sure too if I am excited. But one thing is for sure, I have something to look forward to for now!

Moviedate: Breaking Dawn

yay! Finally!!! Moviedate with Ate Heidz and Ralei together.. I'm missing this sooooo much...?! Definitely, I can sacrifice sleep for this! hehe.. (ako nanaman ang haggard.. *bow*) From work, Ralei fetch me and we had breakfast together before going home to her rented space to catch some zzzzzz... We grab breakfast in North Park where my cravings for congee ended! really ended! I think it'll last for months before I look for another bnowl of congee! lol. We slept til mid-afternoon just in time when Ate Heidz arrived. ^_^ Off to Greenbelt we go only to see a full-packed mall because of Breaking Dawn's showing.. er.. I don't like crowds.. tsss.. and so we tried checking out the movie house in Glorietta mall. Define busy, after our date I need to be home as early as possible because of my cousin's birthday celebration. The available showing times were in conflict with my need-to-go-home-early situation but we manage to get some tickets. Bought some Gongcha tea, and then off we go.

After movie, we hunted for food.. lol. exaggerated! hahaha.. we searched for a good restaurant and ended up in The Spaghetti Factory for dinner.

not time to end the day just yet!

And it seems like I still have the energy to go on dates... hahaha.. right after the 49th Annual Meeting I went straight to meet old friends... since I really really miss them I can't miss to meet them after a long while!!!
And because I wasn't able to feed myself in the seminar, particularly because I am picky, I am really craving for good food.. We tried ButterDiner in Araneta.. Well.. what can I say.. Service not bad. Price, hmm.. I think a bit price-y for me.. food, not bad but nothing special. We fill our tummy while chatting and thinking things through.. their love problems... toinks! goodness! It's great that I don't have such headache! hahaha..

Few shots together..

together with lovers

Super tired and exhausted but lovely day-night!

49th Annual meeting..(oh my haggard??)

Reminiscing.. and it is it! the annual meeting that makes me feel..... hmm.. feel like in my college days again.. (yay! I sound old! lol.) This year's topic I think is more interesting than last year's. And so I did attend it with Ayesa.. ^_^ Yes! with Ayesa for the second time. I was with her in it too last year. Last year was.. I don't want to remember! It was worst! coming from there going to work.. It was really bad. And since I am such a crybaby, last year's experience made me cry for real. So this year I made sure I am on leave on that day. But this year's case is hmm.. should I say, difficult but bearable. If last time I came straight to work from the seminar, this time I did the otherwise, I came straight from work to the seminar. Gosh! Feels awkward wanting a warm shower and not only fresh clothes. Plus, the unexpected happened! lol. Just guess what it is.. hahaha.. kyaaaaa?! ^_^

with Ayesa
Well, I think it went well. We arrived on time and had our table just for ourselves. I wonder why nobody took interest on sharing the table with us? Which I think is just weird cause we had a nice spot in the middle. Anyway, we met our old professors, by old I mean our former professors. hahaha! (quite misleading my statement is, is it not? lol.) It really feels nice to know that you were remembered somehow. And meeting them again proves that I left something to be remembered by them too. ^_^ awesome! (with kilig! toinks!) erase! erase! erase! hahahaha..

with Prof. Almario-Miguel and Ayesa

with Prof. Paguta and Ayesa

The first part of it went smoothly for us.. But after lunch in time for the plenary to start, guess what?! We sort of lost our way. hahaha.. ~not new to me~ so we ended up visiting the Money Museum.

Taking few shots...

just look at Curiosity!

together in BSP's Money Museum

I have my eyes on you!

I really want you dear necklace.. O.O

Ayesa. (pang-profile pic shot!) lol.

i didn't know this shot was taken!

Back to the seminar.. hihi.. we ended up walking under the hot sun in finding our way back. Eureka! but we're super late and super shy to interrupt whoever is amidst of their presentation. So we just waited for the next plenary to start. and while waiting, a mister mistaken us for students! whew! ~^-^~ who's flattered?? hahahaha... Anyway, back to the plenary.. hmm.. What can I say. It feels like I know nothing!!! omo! I still have a lot to learn! haha. I was impressed with how they know a lot of things and admire their passion for learning! really in awe! growing old to be like them wouldn't be so bad!!! I want a brainy companion! Where art thou? 왜 안 만나겠어요? 어디에서? =D

Back... We finished it but didn't attend the cocktail party afterwards cause it's a bit late and we had separate commitments after.

Last shot before we leave...

Ayesa, Prof. Cabauatan, Prof. Paguta

Next year.. If I am still here.. I'll make sure to take the daysss off and to attend the cocktail party.. ^_^
