The Real Birthday Post

I am a year older and wiser, I hope. I had a great birthday--I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has made this year extraordinary.

My family

A great thanks to Mama who did most of the cooking and preparations for my birthday dinner, and to Papa who fried the lumpiang shanghai. Hehe. (Special thanks to myself too for grating the cheese for the spaghetti.) I am so grateful for my parents for taking good care of me and my brothers, always trying to give the best for us. It has been a different year, with my new job and one of my brothers living away to study. It felt as if I have spent more time with parents than before. I am also thankful for my brothers, who make my days funny despite smelling their stinky shirts.

Jon and I

A very special thanks to a very special person--Jon, who bought me a pair of Nike Jordan rubber shoes. Hehe. Seriously, he was with me during the toughest days and is loving me with no questions and despite my sometimes haughty nature.

MIST High School Friends

ACTS Team

And where would I be without my friends? The ACTS Team, Stylettos and my high school friends. They shared my laughter, tears and even farts. My officemates also shared some of those, and I am happy to know they can be part of my family.

I can't wait to spend another year with these wonderful people that God has given more. I couldn't ask for more.

Birthday Post

I just had one of the most interesting birthdays ever. A lot of unexpected things and some little surprises came up--it was a lot of fun!

Thanks to everyone who remembered and sent text messages, emails and gifts (hehe). I am really tired and sleepy right now but I will definitely write a better thank you post to everyone who made this day extra special for me. Besides, my "birthday" is not over yet--I have the rest of the weekend to celebrate and only after that will I write a decent birthday post.

Sunset in Zambales


Another one of my sunset photos. Taken on April 2006 at Iba, Zambales. On the photo is my boyfriend's 13 year old nephew attempting to swim through the waves. Fun, yes?

Starbucks Tumbler


I love orange things. I love Starbucks too. And so i looooooove this Starbucks tumbler I found at the Blue Wave Branch last summer. I took this photo using my camera phone. But no, I didn't buy it. Budget constraints!

Gots the Flu

Well, I am actually over the flu but I'm still coughing.

The recent long weekends have got me up and about the city. I took advantage of the time to indulge in dance training, parties, events meetings, unlimited late night internet surfing, dates and dance training again. The first long weekend (Aug 18-20) was an all out physical activity weekend for me. My throat was already feeling funny and it was aggravated by a scoop of ice cream I so happily ate at the Fun Ranch in Tiendesitas on Monday night.


I woke up the next day not wanting to move again ever in my life and wishing I could sleep for 100 more hours. I could barely walk that whole week.

Of course I still went to work and looked forward to another long weekend to rest. BUT! We have booked a gig that Sunday for an event in Eastwood thus I went to dance practice again. And since I did, I thought I'd party anyway and attend a couple more event meetings and go to another dance training. I was drugged that following week at the office and still struggled to walk.

After taking Bioflu, Decolgen, Solmux and Ventolin--I am still alive! And coughing. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again. Promising never to abuse my body ever, ever, ever, ever again.

Innocence


Obviously, I like taking pictures of sunsets by the beach. This is my boyfriend's nephew as he plays by the beach of Iba, Zambales. Don't we all wish we could be playful and innocent like this again? Taken on April 2006.

Mood Rings


After a nice dinner at the Fun Ranch in Tiendesitas, my friends and I bought mood rings for ourselves. For only P20! We felt like we were kids again! Taken on August 2007.
