I don’t know if I should revive this blog or start a completely new blog or just not blog haha…
Here’s one of the works I am actually proud of making in Illustrator that I made this week…but then I saw Sam’s and I wanted to remove my post on twitter about how proud I am of mine but I couldn’t…HAHA oh well…
*Oh and I just found out that I am supposed to color Han Solo so I guess I’m not done…sigh*
This year we spent the Holy Weekend at Subic- Zoobic and Ocean Adventure and Zamables- Capones Beach & Resort. Last year we spent it road tripping up north all the way to Pagudpud. This year was a shorter drive and shorter stay but still an adventure!
I had been waiting for Friday that whole week cause it was the last day of legit classes! The next week was finals week and we only had to go to school if we had to so for me that was like once or twice that week! :))) The bonfire was supposed to be like a kick off to summer, a celebration of the end of the semester and a hoorah to the completion of freshman year! The event itself was “aight”. It was kind of boring and meh. The bonfire wasn’t like the bonfire I experienced back in senior year of HS but it was still nice that we had a bonfire for our baseball and football teams! :D Congrats to both teams by the way!
Jil and I bought these hair chalks from the SuperSale Bazaar and we finally got a chance to try them out! Jil used one color, dark blue, and just dyed the tips of her hair and I used all the colors we bought and applied them randomly :)) Our hair turned out preeeety awesome haha While we were applying it, we were like “Oh shit…this is going to be so crappy!” But it didn’t so yay!
Met up with Kael at the bonfire! He’s dressed up like a newspaper boy because he had his LIT play that night hihi
The stage for the athletes and then the actual bonfire was to the right of the stage.
Got us some Krispy Kreme after we pigged out on Burger King haha
(signature pose ayyyy)
Because I like how my hair chalk looks here…
After party? :P
They’re just all really tall, okie? hehe
Ended up being a good night after all! Cheers to more championships and bonfires! ;D
*post with HQ photos after so long YAY!!! ^_^*
This was the first night run I attended here in the Philippines and it was fun because of the people I went with. If it weren’t for my friends it would’ve been a total bust because the event ended up to be pretty disappointing. We were all expecting colored glow water like glow paint to be provided so we could throw it at each other because that’s what the event posters said would happen but there was none! We were running and running waiting for the glow water but nada!
But it’s totes cool and I’m over it by now haha Dewi came with us to the run but didn’t register in time to actually run with us. But then Kim’s friend backed out last minute so there was an extra run kit so ya know the YOLO Queen that Dewi is took it and ran with us! We were about 2 hours early for the run and we ended up being late for the start of our 3K race because Dewi had to buy socks, cut her shirt and change.
We jogged maybe less than half the route lol we mostly walked and “power walked” and stopped for the cameras so we could get as many photos as we could. We stopped for almost every camera and we only got 4 group shots -_- haha oh wellzzz
Titling this one March Madness because literally March was insane only because it was the last few weeks of school and finals were happening. Project after project, paper after paper, test after test…it was crazyyyy!!! That’s why I only found the time now, a week after the last day of school, to blog again. (I’ve been busy catching up on tv shows and sleeping in till like 2 pm this whole week haha) Plus I wanted to do this before I go on our mini-vacay to Subic for Holy Weekend! :)))
The first day of March was already busy…kinda. Jil, Kim and I went to the SuperSale Bazaar like the one Kim and I went to back in December, but this one wasn’t as good as the last. But I still got a lot haha…then that night we went to a party but we went home early after doing this…
…yehhhh we’re kinda vain. That photo right thurrr, the top left corner photo…yep that right there is our signature pose from now on HAHA ;)))
After that weekend, I stayed in mostly or was at school, at the lib, finishing up my EN research paper, ES project and paper shizzz and studying for finals (meh kinda…nah not really) but it was getting hectic!
This. THIS was one of my desktop To-Do lists haha you see the red sticky?? I obviously was not prioritizing lol
But before the actual last week and Finals week, we had Bonfire numero dos for the soccer..ehem I mean football…and baseball team.
Overview of the night but I’ll probably make separate post for this too :>
Finals week was really chill for me. I only had one legit exam and it was for LIT and our prof gave us the questions in advance! The only real stress I had was finishing up our FIL magazine and my EN memoir. But that was it and I was free for the summer! :D
I was so not stressed or busy that week that I even got to go to Demi Lovato’s concert with Jil! :))) supah dupah fun! Demi is an amazing vocalist and is an incredible performer!!! I nearly had a “Heart Attack”! Yeahhhh I had to!!! lol I know I’m punny…
Look, I wore my “LOVE” top to Demi LOVato’s concert! haha yes I had to…I’m not sorry :p haha
And the last day of school was gloomy and rainy sadly, but our plans were not ruined! We went to V and Robie’s dance concert Musicbox, which was so much fun to watch! Made us want to become dancer’s! HAHA in my dreams will I only be coordinated enough for such type of activity!!
Got there just in time for Robie and V’s second performance…but we were still like an hour late lol blame Philippine Friday night traffic!!

Then we headed to Jil’s for chillnuman but before that we made a few stops….first we went to Rustan’s to buy food and drinks, but they were already closed. So then we headed over back to Katipunan to go to Mini Stop, but then we decided we were hungry and really wanted some tuna pies from Jollibee. So we went there and bought ourselves a Jollibee Feast then walked to Mini Stop bought what we needed from there and finally went to Jil’s house!
(c) Dewi Manuel
Tuna pies are legitly delicious though. They were right. To be honest, I thought it was going to be nasty. But now I want to eat one…
I also got to go out with my cousins FINALLY! We’ve been planning and planning and the plans have always fallen through but we finally found a night we could all go out! :))
We hadn’t gone out together for 7 months!!! So this was long overdue! We went to Jack’s Loft for dinner then chilled at Red Mango till midnight then sang till we could sing no more at Red Box!! haha we were there from 12 to 3 singing our hearts out
(c) Kath Asistin
We took several videos of us singing Call Me Maybe and Wild Ones haha they were both posted on Fb and I will NOT be posting them here cause they’re embarrassing!
March was definitely a good month but it’s summer now and it’s going to get even better! :D
Till the next! Which I promise won’t be in two months! Ideally I’ll post my Holy Weekend mini-vacay by Tuesday or so… ;)
Sooo it’s been a while since I last updated my blog! But so much happened in February and March that I have to document them somehow. So I’ll just do a quick rundown of February!
Under the Stars + Kael’s House for POPOL & DDR
Jil as Dora and me as Boots for our Term project video in ES
(c) Ana de Jesus
Color Manila Nite Run (I’ll probably do a separate post for this one though hihi :)))
AMFT Finals Game and we won! Woohoo go Ateneo! :D (c) Kim Mendoza
Okieee so that was my February!!
Okay so the title of my post comes from this talk my block and I were required to attend two weeks ago? or was it just last week? But anyways, at the talk, one of the speakers talked about “YOLO” and he kept saying “…because YOLO…” It was so awkward hearing an older guy say it so it caught on and my friends and I use it constantly when we want an excuse to do something stupid (even though I never liked hearing that word or even saying it). And it’s just so suitable for this particular four-day weekend we had!!!!
Shindig…Shindig…Shindig. AJMA’s biggest and most awaited party of the year. Let’s just say it was memorable but it wasn’t the BEST party my friends and I have been to…It was just too many people and too big for us. I guess we like more “intimate” and closed parties where we know a lot of people? haha but anyways it was still fun cause I mean it’s a party. duh. It was just a weird night cause I didn’t get ready with mah CB girls so it was definitely awkward…The whole day I just occupied myself with nothing then finally Robie picked me up to go to Kael’s house so they could smoke it up there…
We were kinda late but we made it just in time for the clincher which was amazing even though I didn’t really process what was happening cause I was looking for my friends haha just sooo many people!!!
Unfortunately, I do not remember a lot of the night as I…yeah…okay. And we also do not have a lot of photos which suckssssss balls cause we looked damn hot that night haha

Wacky facessss (c) Miguel
Recovery food at McDo (c) Je
Then we crashed at Kim’s condo and in the morning we just chilled around The Fort, ate at Toast Box (deliciousness) and cooled off with some milk tea at Bubble Tea!!! Omnomnom
The rest of my sunday was left to recovering and resting and goes the same for my monday with a little homework doing too.
Monday night, Jil invited us over for a spontaneous chill inuman sesh at her house!!! It was so random and out of the blue :)) and Sam and Dewi came from Katip to chill and also two of our other “party” friends, Chy and Elmore. haha yeah tha was pretty unexpected but it was a fun night :))
It pretty much made up for Shindig…
(c) Dewi Manuel :)))
Yep, fun night haha it’s all slowly coming back to me haha what?? no. huh?
Friday, all classes ended at 12:30 because of A-Fair so a lot of people cut their morning classes except for the few like me…School was so empty and bare haha but after my last class I found Kim, Dewi and Kael and we headed to Katsu Cafe for lunch! It’s like a mini, cheaper version of Yabu :))
Trying on the flowers crowns Kim made :))
om nom nom delicioso!
The balloons people were sending to their “loved ones” aka a reminder of how single I am hahahahahaaahaaahaahaa… -_-
Two of my fave shots from Dewi’s shoot…
love this girl!!!
and two of my fave shots from Kim’s shoot :))
gahhhh love these shots of you Kim!!! you’re so photogenic like whatdaeffersss :P :>
AND finally a group shot!!!
Peace. Love. Deuces.
My first legit fashion photo shoot with Kim!
At first, we were planning to shoot at the fair because ya know fair photos are so cute! haha but then we checked out the fair and it was kinda not what I envisioned it to be so we went to Kael’s neighborhood to find a photo shoot worthy spot!
Here we go!!! :))
The whole look haha guess I was going for a hipster, vintage, “I’m a nature girl” kind of look (when in reality, I hate nature bahaha :p)
Close-up of the pretty flower crown made by Kim I had the privilege of wearing during the shoot :))
"Let’s get a shot of me fixing my hair! That’s so fashion blogger-y"
I really need to fix how I stand haha my posture is horrendous here! Oh and yes, that is a MAPLE LEAF on my balloon, not weed. Nooooo wayyy ;)
What I’m Wearing:
White Crochet Crop Top with Open Back | Forever 21
Black Tank Top | Forever 21
Denim Shorts | Greenhills
Aztec Print Leather Belt | Forever 21 via Meagan
Steve Madden Black Leather Boots | Buffalo Exchange via Erika
And lastly, a fun shot with mah balloon! :>
My friends have some shots too but I’m putting it into another post so look out for it soon!
This was really fun to do but soooo uncomfortable! haha I’m really not the model type but I’ll keep trying I guesss…
Late as usual but what do ya expect?
I decided to finally make an outfit post because Kim and I agreed I would post one, if she posted one. And she did. Like a month ago. haha so this is long overdue!
I started to do the “shoot” by myself and I realized that 1) my camera is not compatible with a remote control shooter 2) it’s really hard to take photos of yourself by yourself and 3) I can never be a model. My face is just not structured for that kind of thing haha. I eventually ended up just taking photos of myself through the mirror because the ones I did using set-timer ended up either blurry, out of frame or plain UHGLEH.
**KIM!! We need to do these outfit shots together! It’ll be so much easier and legit! :D**
So here is what I got…
NO FACE :>
And a “hipster” edit of one of my blurred self-timer shots bahaha
What I’m wearing:
SOS Crop Tee | Jawbreaking.com
Velvety Tribal Print Skirt | December SuperSale Bazaar
Beige Litas | Parisian in SM Mall of Asia
Gold Double Spikes | December SuperSale Bazaar
Red Skulls | Divisoria via Kim
”Vintage” Citizen Watch | Mom’s old junk
Personalized Disney Leather Bracelet | Disney World via Sheamanti
So there’s my first but not really legit “OOTD” post hehe :)) I’ll try to do some NONE mirror shots next time…if there is a next time :>
I like you. No I don’t. I really like you. Dammit. I hate you.
This week has been pretty chill on the academics front but not doing any work at all is going to bite me in the butt soon :/
But anywho moving on…Friday, we went out to Eastwood to meet up with Tito Phil and Tita Cosette’s sister’s family for dinner. Tito Phil is from Texas, where we are from, and they’re our family friends back home so it was nice to hear how everyone is doing back home :)) But it also made me miss “home” again even more! :( When I go back to visit (possibly in December 2013), they’re going to be in college!!! Like wtf. I’m so old. And the little kids are gonna be in middle school and high school and taller than me!! I feel like I’m missing out on so much at home :’( I really do miss those guys.
After the dinner, Jil and I spontaneously went to ARSA Fest back at Ateneo! It’s the dormers org party. It was free. It was supposed to be like a “mini Sinulog”. And it was amazing. haha I didn’t think those ARSAns could party so hard! When we got there it was 11:30 pm and we already missed the “Sinulog” part of throwing paint at each other so we were the cleanest girls there lol But ya know people managed to get us slightly “dirty” haha with hugs :)) Overall the party was fun especially since it was so last minute and last decision type thing. We met up with Igi, Jondrew “Friend”, Glen (who is absolutely hilarious and fun to be around when she is TIPSYYYY), Sam (who is KARAZAY when she is intoxicated haha I love her), Francis, Elmore and then there’s that random guy at the bottom of the photo who nobody knows…LOL oh wellsss :))
We were walking to the car and saw that someone rearranged the letters from “ARSA” to “ASS” hahahaha :’D
Fave photo because its so candid and we still look decent! HAHA that never happens!!!

The next day I had FIL class and not just class, we had a test! It was actually pretty easy though since I actually studied for this one! :D We got released early and I went home and just crashed after the happenings of last night and all my mixed feelings, I didn’t get any sleep. Five hour naps are always the best. Well any nap is always the best haha. Saturday was actually my dad’s birthday dinner celebration and family came over and it was fun for the hour that I stayed haha…I know this is going to sound like I’m a horrible daughter but I left our little get together and went to Empire with Jil for a couple of hours ^_^ Yep, another party. I mean, my dad’s birthday isn’t really till Monday so all is good.
Empire. Empire. Empire. Well. Let’s just say when we got there it was kinda awkward and like an intimate party. We arrived at 10:30 and it hadn’t really started yet. Sam, Jil and I were already thinking of leaving but then the party started happening once more people came and more people got alcohol in them haha “Everyone becomes friends when there’s alcohol involved” We partied with Chris and Inigo and Nico and then met these really fun guys! :)) Yeaaaaup. Okieee so yeah that was my weekend!

Next weekend will be even better! I seriously can’t wait! SHINDIG 2013.
*sucks that they’re all instagram photos but I can’t bring my SLR or film cameras to these things cause I have this fear I’ll lose them or break them :(*
**but i’ll have legit photo posts soon! promise :)) **
Wednesday night I went to the Swedish House Mafia: One Last Tour Concert with Jil and some of her high school friends and it was freakin’ amazing!!! Haven’t experienced anything like it!!
It was definitely a great and lucky opportunity since we got the tix from her friend and they were FREE VIP STANDING tix!!! It was last minute but how could you pass up such an opportunity??? Haha I’ve never been VIP for anything…ANYTHING. Swear. haha
I’ve been to concerts where it was free standing close to the stage but this was something else. It was just one huge party with live music! Amazing. We were jumping and dancing like no other I had no care in the world who saw me lol
What made the night even more fun was that we ran into a bunch of people we knew! We met up with Igi, Glen & Jon and their Cebuano group, John and some more of Jil’s high school friends :))
It was just sooooo much fun haha
Jil and me messin’ around at Starbucks :))
Here come the crap quality photos from my crap iPhone…
this is kinda creepy and cool at the same time haha
Didn’t take a lot of photos cause we were busy dancing foolishly. But it was an all out amazingly funnnn night! :D
