so long weekend!

I had a really interesting weekend in Manila. I don't know if I should cry or laugh about it because it was that ironic!

Our plane arrived at 8:30 in the evening and we went straight away to Golden Bay restaurant because they were shooting for My Binondo Girl there! Aaaaahhhh. My sister and I were so happy to be able to have our photos taken with Xian Lim and Matteo Guidicelli! 

Xian Lim ♥

Matteo Guidicelli

We were even given the chance to become extras in the show but, I couldn't stay long because I had a prior engagement with my friends. So off I went to partay the night away with my dear friends. :)

Around after this picture was taken, I took a rest and rummaged through my bag to look for my phone and oh wow, MY PHONE WAS LOST. It got stolen!!!! And I didn't even feel a thing. :( I was so devastated and I didn't know what to do. We told the waiters about it and they were trying to search for it, but to no avail. So much for a fun night! 

On the up-side, the person stole my iphone and not my blackberry. I know, either way it's a lose-lose situation but at least the iphone was already old. *sniff* I will miss you iphone!!!

The rest of the trip was dedicated to eating and shopping!! :D

Love the chicken! I will definitely eat again!

It would taste even better w/ ice cream!

my cousin - so landicious! but she looks so pretty here :D

And last but not the least, I was able to go to Sophie's Mom to try out their mochi ice cream and we bought some red velvet cupcakes for home! Can't wait to try it!!

marry the night

Our friends Emmylou and Agnes celebrated their birthday on the 23rd, and we had dinner last night. Double celebration! :)

Agnes and Emmylou

Dinner at Don Henricos

I definitely haven't been to Don Henricos in years! 

They were sung a birthday song

Highlight of the night!
I have no idea why she's carrying around a "planggana" as we call it in the Visayan dialect. In english, I don't really know the term. Not a barrel, and not a pail. Do you guys know what it's called in english? Haha

the gang! 

Dress-Forever 21
My one and only outfit shot. Haha :) Tonight I was more of the photographer and not the model. Surprisingly I only had a few photos of myself. Is that what happens when you get a DSLR? You become the photographer and not the subject?! Haha. I'm so excited for the long weekend!!

thunder only happens when it's raining

Today was probably the WORST rain day ever, in the whole year? It felt almost like 'Ondoy'. Almost. :)

The afternoon started with lots and lots of non-stop thunder and heavy rains. The sky was so dark that when we went out of the house, the windows fogged up pretty quickly. Then, there was the flood. The whole area surrounding SM Cebu was super flooded, and the water was muddy and reached up to the sidewalks! Amazing. Good thing our car was huge, or else we would have been stranded. 

After strolling around the mall, the water still hadn't subsided and the rain went on until evening. Boo. The power even went out for I guess 5 hours? 

Top-H&M | Skirt-H&M | Shoes-Zara

Peacock ring-Mia Casa

Anyhow, I wore fake eyelashes today and minimal makeup, and I liked the effect the lashes gave me. It made me look so made-up without even trying too hard. :)

We had dinner at Tinder Box. It was my 2nd time to go there, although the restaurant is fairly old. I guess we never really got the chance to go there. But let me tell you, the food is delicious!! Although we had to wait about almost and hour and 30 mins for the food, I guess it was worth it. Didn't get to take pictures though as I was really really hungry!

Cool chandelier made of bottles!

with family friends

This is the coolest! You put your drink there, and the ice makes it cold w/o letting the water mix into your drink!

Super amazed by this
Hope you guys had a great weekend! ;)

trying my hand

Ever since I got my new camera I've been itching to take some photos but I just didn't have the time, and I also didn't have any good "subjects" to take photos of. Here are some test shots that I did.

Die I bought in Beijing
1st - drink 2 glasses (drinking game)
2nd - kiss
3rd - do nothing

focus on my iphone


Top - H&M | Bag - Zara

Skirt - Topshop | Wedges - H&M

Last night I was watching an episode of Kourtney and Kim take New York and I saw Kourtney wear this top and I was like "Hey, she has the same shirt as me!!" and I just felt so excited that someone famous actually had something of mine! Haha. So I thought of wearing it today to commemorate what I saw last night. Haha!

Happy Anniversary!

Today was our church's 29th Anniversary! I can't believe it's been here that long already! haha :)


Flower arrangements. Aren't they purty? ;)

My cousin and my best friend!

Something happened this morning during the lunch festivities. I have this stalker who constantly annoyed me when we were in High School and College (since we were in the same schools) and last year he made a Facebook fanpage of me. He took so many pictures from my previous albums on Multiply and posted them on Facebook. Writing captions that would make your hair stand and even your goosebumps get goosebumps. THAT FREAKY. T.T

I thought that after a few years he would get over it and maybe move on to his next victim, but I guess I was wrong. While we were eating he kept trying to butt in on our conversation (me and my friends) and the LAST STRAW was when he took his phone and tried to take a photo of me! He was so obvious that I had to almost yell and say "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" and he was like "Nothing". And I covered my face and told him to GET A LIFE and GO BOTHER SOMEONE ELSE. And I stormed out.

I was so angry and so fed up with his SHIT that I didn't care what other people thought of me. There were a few people who became witnesses to what was going on. I mean, I'm not a mean person. But if you disrespect my privacy and personal space, then I will be pissed. And you wouldn't like me pissed!
