All work, no play.
Q1: Hi. I miss yew and your pwetty face. Guess who. Hihi.
This could be anyone but to make a wild guess… Angel? :-)
Q2: Hello, pano mo na-sseparate yung photos and caption sa blog posts mo? :) Example I’ll post 3 photos with caption then another photo with caption. Yung akin kasi nagmmerge lahat ng photos gusto ko yung separate :) And pano mo nalalagyan ng title yung mga posts mo? Thank you.
Hello! I don’t think we’re entirely on the same page here but I just insert photos in texts posts and enter the ‘captions’ where I want them. Does this answer your question? I’m sorry! Try rephrasing it? I’d love to help.
Q3: Hi! How many pets do you have? ( Kind and name please.) And are you an animal lover?
We have two at the moment, not counting the aquarium of fish — a beagle named Marley and a bunny named Penelope aka Lulu. And yes I’d like to think I am!
Q4: You have 2 siblings right? Who’s your favorite and why?
I’m sorry (or am I) but this, to me, is a stupid question. I’m not the kind to play favorites. I love all THREE siblings equally. I love my brother because he’s determined, down-to-earth and according to many, a pretty good downhill long boarder; my sister is a crazy, smart, talented little girl and my other sister is the funniest, sweetest little human alive. All of them deserve equal love (and hate hehe) from me just by being themselves. So… did you get the answer you wanted? :-)
Q5: Hi! If you have any chance of giving away Rihanna tickets or any concert tickets please post them on your blog huhhuhu Great blog btw, so ~hipsta~
I wish I had tickets to Rihanna myself! Aaaah they’re so expensive. But if ever I do have extra tickets (or sponsors uy feeling famous) to a show or anything, for sure! Thanks for the suggestion. X
DC at Sta. Elena
Last week, my good friend Belle invited us to join her on their last night at Sta. Elena’s guest house in Laguna and it was kind of sad that not everyone in our group could join us but with the little company we had, we had a ton of fun nonetheless.
I hate how the place is so unphotogenic because almost every photo we took of it did not do it justice. The ambiance was perfect and the weather pretty much cooperated with us the whole time.
The villa had 4 rooms with each their own bathrooms, and the whole place had centralized airconditioning and WiFi! There’s nothing I love more in a room than fluffy feather pillows and soft white comforters. I think I loved it a little too much that I fell asleep on everyone and drooled the night away.
Since not everyone stayed for the last night, Belle, Ina and I had the to avail of all the free breakfast meals — 8 free meals for 3 people. Not bad.
The place is so simple, secluded and peaceful. It was a great midweek getaway from the city.
Thank you Belle! I love you always. X
All I Need Now Is A Bell
Now that I’m moving back home for my last term in college (wow), one of the things on my summer to-do list is to get myself a bike. I did not want to complicate my life and build one or get a mountain bike and have a freaking hard time riding it in shorts or in a dress… Okay, maybe I just wanted a little be a little cute with this so please cut me some slack.
I initially wanted a dusty blue gray but the hardware I went to didn’t have that shade in particular so I opted for this bright turquoise instead. Along with a can of metallic silver spray paint, I woke up and without brushing my teeth, went crazy with my new bike.
I got too excited and decided not to sandpaper the thing but I think it still came out okay. Except the part where I spray painted the wheels this awkward ombrefied turquoise silver but who cares. I love my new bike. Is it cheesy to name it? I haven’t yet and I think I need a little help. Any suggestions?
I think a bike is a perfect way to explore your area, exercise and get some much-needed alone time. Try it out sometime.
PS: Bikes with baskets >
Q1: Hi! What apps do you use in editing some of your photos? Or the ones you use the most? Thank you! X P.S. I love your blog ;)
Hi! I usually use Afterlight, previously known as Afterglow. Thank you for the love. Sending it all back. X
Q2: Hi can you please take a photo of all the apps you use in your iPhone? Please :)
I believe I don’t have time to do that right now but I’ll try to do a separate post on it soon. Sorry! But thank you for the question. :-)
Q3: Hi. What camera apps do you use?
I prefer editing the photos than actually taking photos with effects. However, the camera apps I do have and find useful are TimerCam, iSupr8 and iMajiCam.
Q4: What polaroid app do you use?
I don’t use one anymore… But last time I did, it was Poladroid.
Q5: Could you do a post on your current skin care regimen as well as your thoughts/philosophy on skin care? :)
Noted, will do! Thank you so much for suggesting. X
Q6: how do u know daryl matti?
I met him through my friend John.
Q7: You are amazing and I thought I should let you know. ;)
*HUG* Thank you stranger. I’m sure you are too! Have an amazing rest of the day.
One Encounter, Changed Forever
Since two years ago, I have been looking forward to the end of April every single year because of this. Camp has been a tradition for three years now and I have missed only 1/3 since. I made up for the one I missed last year though, because by God’s grace and timing, I got to attend camp back in Oregon with my cousin and his church. It was a blessing.
This year was by far the best. It was not as fun but it fulfilled me the most. With great company, a great place and a great God, everything else didn’t matter for four days. Everything was perfect. I was high. The good kind.
It’s Burger Day
I was a part of food history just last week because my family insisted on taking part in Chili’s annual burger day where all their burgers were reduced to THE most affordable price of only P150. Holy cow.
Aside from the burgers, we couldn’t dine the proper Chili’s way without unlimited nachos and mom’s favorite cheese dip — which we then found was way overpriced so whether or not this is still her favorite, I might have to get back to you on that.
We got all four options and happily burger-stuffed ourselves the night away.
Nothing like burgers and family to cap off the week.
The Belle to my Issa celebrated her 19th birthday just two days after mine and just as much as she is a big part of my natal day (natal is a strange word, it reminds me of belly buttons), our little crazy gang decided to be a part of hers as well!
This photo was taken the first few hours of her day back at her place after our little night out. She practically broke down when she heard her family singing to her from behind with her favorite chocolate cake and a card in hand. She deserved every bit of love she got that day.
Belle decided to treat us to bowling and dinner and we had a ton of laughs. Here’s everyone with their best I-am-pro-at-bowling pose. Ina’s is my favorite.
I just moved out of my condo yesterday and I couldn’t help but feel a lot sad cause the last year was just ultimately one of the best years of my life and it would not be what it was without these people + Nicole, Maan and a lot more.
They say high school friends are forever but in my case, I think they got it a little bit wrong. College just might be the best thing that has happened to my life.
A Vanilla Cupcake Bakery Birthday
I’m not sure if I say this often but I think I found my new favorite cupcake place. Before all the hype given to these sweet baby angels (please take note that red velvet is not the only flavor that exists in the cupcake world!!! sorry just had to put that out there), I can honestly count myself a professional cupcake devourer. And so, as I was
briskwalking my way to the ends of Alabang Town Center, I kept wishing that them babies would taste as good as the place’s interiors.
Before the eating commenced, I just had to admire these perfectly intricate door knobs. The one thought that was in my head: Cath Kidston lived here.
My sister and I tried the Vanilla Blue and the Butter Toffee flavored ones. From the first look to the last bite, I was in love. These are by far one of the best commercial vanilla-based cupcakes I have tried in my life.
The titleholders are as follows:
- My little sister’s 7th birthday cupcake maker aka our neighbor from the ‘hood. Cupcakes and my trying to be ghetto don’t match. I fail in life.
- Maya Street Bakery cupcakes. Hi Nobs, if you’re reading this, you know that I miss
- AND VANILLA CUPCAKE BAKERY WEE OH WEE. Sorry, Marta’s.
Bottom line is: you should get off your computer and head to one nearest you. You’re welcome.
Stepping into the place made your insides giggle and it was to no one’s surprise that my (now-teenage!) baby cousin — who made my 18th birthday cupcakes — fell in love with everything and decided to make it her 13th birthday party’s theme.
She mixed a few of her creations with some of her Vanilla Cupcake Bakery favorites and made a cupcake tower. How adorable is this? Of course I had
one two ten.
Every time you read the word ‘cupcake’ in this post, eat one. Have fun.
Cafe de Seoul + Date Night
Earlier last month, I discovered (and rediscovered) two things: a quaint Korean cafe at the second floor of our building and how great it feels to catch up with your mother after weeks and weeks of school work and stress.
They even had Samsung tablets on the table tops. How neat is this? Although I do recommend not setting you and your date’s faces as the desktop backgrounds as these could… distract people.
Any place that was a clean wall of visible tiles, bricks, et cetera I’m sold.
A few days later, my mom and I got together to catch a movie (John Lloyd Cruz hi) and for me to bring her to Yabu. Fried goodness, unlimited necessites and killer sauces.
