Hopefully I’m not one of these.

REBLOG! I find these clever analogies hilarious. You know, for conversations in public.

 Pinoys sure are a creative bunch when it comes to wordplay.

Here’s a list of acronyms we use when signing dedications in slumbooks.

Here’s a list of Filipino words that don’t have English translations.

HASHTAG justbestfriendthings

Dear Diary,

I’m just superbly happy that my friends and I didn’t change in terms of our bonding moments. Of course, we’re all grown-ups now with different sets of problems and priorities, but I find it really amazing that we can still manage to find a couple of hours twice a month or so so that we can catch up on our lives. For the past 8 years, these people have been the source of my unexplained contentment in friendship.

I remember when I was in high school, I was the most socially awkward person, ever. No Facebook or whatever. I never wished to have any cellphone even when I was already at my Junior year because I (really) don’t need it. Then my birthday came and I received one! Turned out, they all gave a little of their allowances so that they can buy me one, because they want me to “have a life” outside our circle. hahaha. Ah, I love them so much. :)

PS I miss Lalaine. We haven’t talked in years, literally. :(

PSS It’s also a good thing to have the most understanding boyfriend in the world, someone you wouldn’t worry about bugging you the whole night out while you’re with your friends, because he knows how to give enough space. :)

Oratorio

I was lucky and blessed enough to be a part of the Iglesia Ni Cristo Centennial Celebration by being a member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo Symphonic Choir which was formed specially for the majestic composition of Ka Rod Ramos’ Oratorio.

It was my first time to join this huge musical group and over-all, the experience was beyond compare. Sacrifices and hardships were made, considering that our rehearsals took 9 months to complete. We started October 2013 and polished everything this July 2014. I got used to seeing an orchestra playing in front for me during our practices, compared to my first WOW of seeing them in actual person. You don’t see a harp or different brass and woodwind instruments  on a regular basis, do you? I miss them, specially the cymbals banging just right beside your left eardrums.

What’s more amazing is that we were taught of the most prestigious music teachers. My favorite is Ka Ed Manguiat, the founder and conductor of the University of the Philippines Singing Ambassadors (UPSA), he is also the former mentor of our local voice coach, Ka Odysseus Patena. Everyone’s so blessed to have him because of his wit and clever humor.

UPSA Conductor Ed Manguiat founded the group in 1980 as a freshman dormitory choir at the State University. He has studied under world-renowned choral musicians and trained under respected names in vocal pedagogy and choral conducting in the Philippines. He has also won various international conductor’s awards in choral competitions. source

So apparently I can now say that we got free music and voice lessons for nine awesome months. Not to mention the free food and new friends! To God be the glory for He allowed all of these blessings to pour unto us.

Okay, so we scheduled this pictorial days ahead and we were like so excited and I did a lot of preparations, full make-up and stuff and by the time I looked at this photo, I was like.. WHERE AM I??? hahaha. apparently I’m at the far back, the last line of them all. #youcantseeme haha

May I share some of our photos?

The Barangka Sacred Chorus: Rehearsals from October 2013 – July 2014

… but we don’t have any photos of the ACTUAL rehearsal because any multimedia devices are not allowed inside the multimedia hall. Ooh the irony.

How about some more food?

Isaw! Filipino favorite :)

IMG_20140629_171015 (2)

isaw at tenga sa may A luna. FAVORITE. :’)

I’m home alone today, might as well cook a bowl of pasta for no one. F*ck logic. Ako lang talaga ang kumain. :'(

IMG_20140704_105702Still, I wasn’t contented. I prepared more food! Again, for no one.

Corned beef and cheese sandwich, the walang-magawa version

Step 1: fancy cut slices of white bread and fill them in with desired palaman

IMG_20140704_104141

Step 2: top the cover slice and fry. Just so the cheese would melt.

Step 3: Pig out.

Because I did.

Cinnabon’s Chocobon and Classic Cinnamon roll (again)

OOPPs, ERROR: Photo not found, can’t wait to eat.
