BB Alive Tour 2012 in Manila - my POV

Note: Kailangan kong magTagalog dahil napagtanto ko na hindi pa ganoon kalalim ang aking pananagalog lalo na kung impromptu. Kaya para ako ay masanay at di na mapahiya kung saka-sakaling may pangalawang concert pah, eto  nah, pag-iigihan ko na ang pagsasalita/pagsusulat gamit ang ating Pambasang Wika.

At talagang kailangan ko pa ng isang araw at kalahati para bumalik ako sa aking ulirat upang makapagsulat ng aking karanasan noong ika-24 ng Oktubre taong 2012. Ganoon kabongga ang nangyari sa gabing yaon na para bang nanalo ako ng titulo ng Ms. Universe at pinipiktyuran na ako at lahat, binigay na saken ang korona at sash, pero di ko pa rin matanggap na oo, eto nah, nangyayari nah!!!!!

BAGO MAG-24
Infairness naman saken, di ko naman naranasan ung di makatulog dahil sa excitement ilang araw pa lang before the concert. Noong gabi ng 23 ko lang naranasan yun at sa tingin ko, maganda rin dahil kung naexcite siguro ako ng todo at di na ako nakatulog simula Setyembre pah, eh syempre ung mukha ko magiging eyebags nah na tinubuan ng mukha!

OCTOBER 24.. ETO NAH TOH!
Unang-una kong pasasalamatan ung phone ko na nag-alarm naman ng bongga by 7AM. I know, I know! Ang aga para sa 12nn flight ko! Pasensya nah.. fangirl eh!

Ginawa ko na lang pampalipas oras habang naghihintay na lumipad na'ko papuntang Maynila ay ang pagtetext sa mga kameet ko na mga VIPs. Aba syempre, ang pakikinig din ng Bigbang music :)

Eto ang masaklap at sa tingin ko ang pinakatanga kong nagawa sa buong biyahe ko patungong Kabayan Hotel: Mga 1:30PM akong dumating sa Maynila tapos ung mga kapwa VIPs ko nagtext na rin na either andun na sila o papunta na sila ng MOA. Eh ako naman na madaling kabahan, umeksena na ang aking adrenaline rush. Paglapag na eroplano, kumaripas na ako ng lakad papuntang labas ng NAIA. Di ko na tinuloy ang planong magshuttle bus kahit 20pesos lang ang bayad dahil alam kong matatagalan pa if ever dahil hihinto at hihinto pa yan sa kung saan2x. Kaya pinili ko na lang magtaxi. Nung nandun na ako sa linya nga mga white taxis, nakita ko karatola na sabi FIXED RATE daw. Eh kinabahan ako at feel ko lugi ako. Ewan ko kung ano nangyari dahil sa bilis eh kumaripas na ako sa yellow taxi. PUCHAPENK! pag sakay ko sinabi naman ng driver na fixed rate din sa kanya!! Di nako nakababa dahil di ko na alam naramdaman ko ng sandaling yun! Basta ang hangarin ko na lang ng oras na yun ay makapunta ng Kabayan Hotel! Pagbaba ko, nagtanong na ko kay manong drayber (in tagalog obcorz!) kung magkano rate nila.. tentenenen!!!! PHP450.00!!!! Daig ko pa naholdap!! Mabuti na lang talaga at maganda ung pakikitungo ng drayber saken sabay kwentuhan pa kung ano daw ginagawa ko dito sa Manila!! Hanggang ngayon, puno pa rin ng pagsisisi ang puso ko kung baket ko ginawa toh! Sising-sisi talaga ako!!!!!

Sa Kabayan Hotel naman, kumaripas naman ako ng check-in. Ang saya-saya lang dahil may nakita akong mga kapwa ko VIPs. Armorado lang talaga sila: banner, fans, lahat na ng merchandise nasa kanila nah. Eh ung get-up ko nga di mo aakalain na aattend ako ng concert, pangBusiness Trip lang! Pero anyways, may konteng kabwisitan naman ako sa hotel na toh kasi nagmamadali nga diba, sinabihan ba naman ako ng mag-antay ako ng 45min - 1 hour dahil lilinisin pa yung room ko! ATE, KPOP FAN AKO, MAHALAGA SAKEN ANG ORAS! TAPOS 45MINUTES PAH?!?! 1 MINUTO PARA SAKEN KATUMBAS NA YUN NG ISANG TAON! KUHA MO BA YUN?!?!?! Though di ko toh sinabi at binigyan ko lang sya ng isang mahiyaing ngiti at tango. Eh parang mabait naman sya eh! 

So ayun nah, nag-isip na ko ano gagawin ko habang naghihintay. Since di pa ako kumakain at alam ko na mahirap na maghanap ng food pag pumunta na ako ng MOA, nagpasya na akong kumain. Hirap na ako pag lumabas pa ako ng hotel kaya dun na lang ako sa cafe nila kumain. Hindi ko alam kung dahil sa excitement na wala na akong malasahan o wala lang talagang lasa ung spaghetti nila! WAHIHIHI! So ayun, after kong kumain, buti naman at tapos na rin linisin ang room ko! So akyat na ako ng 3rd floor at infairness, ung inis ko nawala na nung makita ko yung room! ONG GONDOH GONDOH!!! After ko masuri ung kabuuan ng kwarto, dinaig ko na si Flash at binilisan ko na ang pagbihis at paghanda ng mga gamit ko para sa concert!! Triniple check ko ung bag ko kung andun ba ung concert ticket ko! Aba, andun pa nga, sige nga, makapunta na ng MOA!!!!

Nung lumabas na ako ng hotel, obcorz, wala ng yellow taxi noh! NO MORE NAH! di ko na keri dahil baka 1k na ung mababayaran ko papuntang MOA! haha! So nung andun na ko, hanap lang ako ng hanap sa mga VIP friends ko! At goal ko rin ng sandaling yun ang makita ang YG booth para makabili na ako ng Bigbang crownstick! Mabuti na lang talaga at maaga akong pumunta. Parang piyesta dun sa gilid ng MOA! Ang daming booths, tapos ang daming tao na makukulay! Busog na busog talaga mata ko infairness! Tapos nagpapatugtog pa ng Bigbang music! Eh syempre kanta rin ang peg nga mga fans na akala English song lang ung kinakanta! Sapol ang lyrics! PERPEK! Nameet ko rin mga VIP friends ko at kwentuhan lang kami ng kwentuhan! Talagang instant friends kaming lahat! Parang 15 years na kaming magkakilala! AYLABYOUGAIZ!

GETTING THERE!
Pagdilim, aba, eto na, kumakabog na puso naming lahat! Ung paglinya siguro patungong loob ng MOA ang isa sa di ko rin malilimutan! Sari-sari rin ung makikita at malalanghap mo! Ung pinakanakakatawa siguro eh ung may nagkukunwaring nahimatay ng makita na ung totoong nahimatay ay binigyan ng special attention and care at pinaalis na lang sa linya! Eto pa ha, mga 40 years old ata ung nagkukunwaring nahimatay! All for the love of Bigbang nga naman! haha! To make the long nobela short, nakapasok rin naman ako at last after 2 long hours sa pila! 

Pagpasok ko sa MOA at pag-upo ko sa upuan ko, heaven lang naman ang dating! Ikaw ba naman ang nakatayo ng magdamagan, di mo kaya matitignan ang upuan mo na parang malambot na kama?!! So ayun, nashock lang ako kung gaano ako kalapit! Iba sya sa inaasahan ko kaya thanks talaga sa sarili ko para sa effort na makakuha ng magandang seat! So ayun, antay-antay lang tapos biglang in-OFF na ung ilaw! OH EM GEEEEEE, DES ES EEETTT! MAKIKITA NA NAMIN SILANG LAHAT! So ako naman, kinuha ko na BB crownstick ko at pinindot ko na ung button, wow naman, ang gondoh talaga ng crownstick! Mabuti na lang at natirhan pa ako :D

DA CONCERT!
Pagbagsak ng stage curtain, sigawan na lahat at balik na naman ako sa pagkakatayo pero hindi ko alam kung ano nangyari pero ung parang nawala ung pagod ng mga paa ko at nagawa ko pang tumalon ng tumalon sabay tili! Nasa loob sila ng capsules at una ko talagang tinitigan ay si TOP na naka-lean lang sa capsule! SSHHEETT, ANG POGI NYA! Tapos unang lumabas naman sa capsule eh si GD, infairness, ang kulet at ang liksi gumalaw! Lahat ng VIPs nagsisigawan nah at feel ko naman ung iba umiiyak pah! Ako naman, obcorz, tili, talon, tili, talon, kanta, tili, talon, kanta! Dito na part ng concert, di pa nagsisink-in lahat pero I tell you, intro pa lang, sulit na pinambayad ko! SWEAR! Iba talaga ung feeling! Parang ung tipong nakalutang ka sa ulap habang winawagayway mo ung BB crownstick!

Sa una, takot pa akong magtake ng picture with my digicam kasi nga daw, BAWAL! Pero nung nakakita ako ng isang fan na may DSLR pang dala, aba, ba't ako matatakot eh compared sa kanya, pipitsugin nga lang tong dala ko! So ayun, dun na nagsimula ang pagtake ko ng pictures. Sa sobrang tapang ko, pati flash, in-ON ko! hahahah!

Sobrang sarap talaga ng feeling ng gabing yun! Parang everything is right in front of you! Kung dati through videos ko lang sila tinitignan eh ngayon andito na sila nagpeperform sa harapan ko! May dalawang malalaking screens kung saan kita ung mukha nila ng malapitan pero hello, ba't ako titingin sa TV eh ilang years ko na silang tinitignan dyan! Dito na ko titingin dretso sa kanila! Kahit malayo, feeling ko ang lapit pa rin! WWAAAHHHH!

Nasaktan lang ako nung di talaga ako nakakuha ng mga towels, jackets at shirts na inihahagis nila sa audience! PUCHA PENK! Ang swerte ng mga nakakuha! Eto pa nakakatawa, ang tagal pinag-agawan ng fangirls ung jacket ni GD! Pagkahagis, mga 7 siguro na fangirls ang nag-aagawan. Tapos nag2nd song na lang, di pa rin natapos! Gitna ng 2nd song, mga 4 na lang ata silang natira. Siguro ung tatlo sumuko na, mukhang sa zipper lang ata sila ng jacket nakakapit! hihihi! So ayun, natapos na 2nd song, di pa rin nagkaalaman kung kanino mapupunta ang jacket! OMG! Kung sa direksyon ko inihagis un, ako siguro mag-uuwi nun! Eh di hamak naman na mas mabagsik ako kesa sa mga katabi ko! WAHAHAHAH! 

Isa sa hinanaing ko ay ung solo ni Daesung. Kasi expected na nah lalagyan sya ng pakpak tapos ililipad siya sa ere! Pero nadisappoint ako kasi walang ganun na nangyari! Di ko alam baket pero isa pa naman talaga un sa inaabangan ko sa concert. Di bale Daesung, baka next time may pakpak ka nah! :D

Ung pinakafavorite ko siguro at talaga ung tipong naka-nganga na ako ay yung sa HARU-HARU! Papasok pa lang sila ang gwapo na tignan! Lahat nakaputi na para talaga silang mga anghel! Ung puso ko ng time natoh ay nakalutang ata!

Sa encore, grabe ang mga VIPs! Kaming lahat sumisigaw na ng "WE WANT MORE, WE WANT MORE, WE WANT MORE!!!!!" Infairness talaga, kapit-bisig mga lalamunan namin at um-effort talaga kami sa pagsigaw! Obcorz bumalik ang Bigbang para magperform! Kaya nung nagperform na sila, may mga parts na nah nakatingin na lang ako sa kanila ng malalim! Di ko kasi alam kung kelan sila babalik kaya mabuti na tong busugin ko mata ko ng mga mukha at katawan nila para may pambaon ako until they come back! At aba, ang bait naman ni Lord noh at kung kelan pa ako tumitig sa kanila ng bongga, eh dun naman nagtopless si Taeyang! Eh ayun, anim na pandesal tinitigan ko! THANK YOU LORD!!!!

Nung natapos nah, di pa rin ako makapaniwala. Parang gusto ko sumigaw ng "WE WANT MORE, WE WANT MORE, WE WANT MORE!!!!" ulet para bumalik na naman sila pero wala na talaga ata kasi nakasindi na ang ilaw sa arena! Ugh, back to reality nah! T___________T

Da best talaga ung experience ko sa concert! Worth it talaga! Pati ung Php450.00 ko sa yellow taxi naging super sulet na rin! Dahil sa concert na toh, masasabi ko talaga na isa na akong ganap na FANGIRL!

Dear Bigbang, 

Maraming salamat sa napakagandang palabas dito sa Manila! Alam ko na maraming beses nyo ng ginagawa toh at alam ko rin na hindi na to espesyal sa inyo pero sa aming mga pinoy VIPs, mag-iiwan ng marka ang concert na toh at talagang hinding-hindi namin ito malilimutan! Balik kayo ha! 

XXX, 
fangirl irese!

sisterly love

Since I feel rich since last Friday "The Payday", I decided to spend some bucks on some sister bonding and hair pampering.


I got my curls recurled. And for my sister, her first ever hair rebond. Outcome was great and I just lurve it!

Now, brb. I'm now hunting for a truckload of hair conditioner. HAIR MAINTENANCE is the key!

September: Wakamatsu + Fudge

Didn't even notice that we had already passed the first half of the year! See how time flies so fast!! BER-months are here to stay!

Anyway, the time of the month has come again to talk about our latest food trip! This time, we had two very different adventures that happened not on the same date! From japanese to sweets!

WAKAMATSU YAKINIKU
This is my 3rd time in this restaurant but seriously, I never get tired of their marinated chicken, pork short ribs, california maki, squid and scallops! Just listing them makes me crave for them more and more and even more! 

This visit makes Wakamatsu our official foodtrip venue. It was also Charles Anthony & Karlo-san's first time in this eat-all-you-can-until-you-dream-of-your-bed (SSB lang!) japanese restaurant. What made this trip like our first is their cold noodles that we tried for the first time. I did love the dish even if it was a bit spicy! Also, since it was the first foodtrip that Max was with us, I did not waste the chance to take a picture of the CACA (Culture Appreciation Club of Alliance) official members!

FUDGE
We had been wanting to visit this sweet heaven since 1st week of September because of their annual dessert buffet. But when we went there Sunday afternoon, their dessert menu is not that inviting and they only have a few cakes available so we just settled for their normal menu and went for their bestsellers. Too bad A wasn't able to come. T__T

the dishes...

the MEATBALL!
This is my personal favorite out of all the dishes that we had ordered. Though my other companions think that the dish is somehow underseasoned and the mushrooms are overpowering, I still think this dish is worth a try! It just amazes me how all of those meaty stuff could fit in one ball of flour! And did you just notice that melting cheese on top?!?! OH LALALALALA! *wipes drool* I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering this the next time I visit Fudge. 

Choco Lava
This sweet darling is surprisingly VERY GOOD!! We have our individual order of this dish and good thing we did not have to share since it was just good heavens down to the last bite!

the other dishes...
cheesecake delight, sandwich with fries, ultimate combo, spicy buffalo wings
our happy faces...

Wedding bells

Yesterday, I went to a close college friend's wedding. She is definitely not the first person that I could ever think of when we talk about marriage and babies. She's the most innocent and childlike person that I know and yet, she's the one who settled down first. Just see how life works in playful and mysterious ways!

Anyway, during that time, I came up with the realization that this is just gonna be the start of attending more weddings, baptismal ceremonies and all other adult stuff. Surely this wedding made me realize that I'm no teenager (???) anymore and our lives get serious every single day.

It's not that I'm afraid of facing adulthood. I've been facing this since my first day of work and geez, I thought I was already the most responsible person that I could ever be since that day but hell to the no! Seems like we all are still children with just a little glimpse of responsibility and maturity.  Alot are still needed to be learnt.

Glee is totally back!

I wasn't one of the millions who were already ecstatic even before September came. I just knew it will be back this week and I was just okay about it, not much excitement in my blood.

But I guess this season deserves more fan love.

With their kick-off episode, my eyes are just happy seeing everything nice for 45 minutes. Alot of things impressed me.. and here are the TOP 3..

3. NEW KIDS!
Not that I already got bored with the oldies but hey, this show already runs 4 seasons and I guess we fans deserve new breed of stars, right?

one of the new stars, Marley Rose
2. KATE HUDSON
For the record, her mash-up performance is now on my FAVE GLEE PERFS list. I never expected she could pull the performance off but dammnnn, she did SSOOO GOOOD! I would not mention anything about her acting anymore since it's already given. In my perspective right now, SHE IS PERFECT!
kate 'effin sexy' hudson
PS. And I'll be stalking her and her movies in IMDB and I'll try to watch everything. Ooops, Kate Hudson fan over here! 

1. MUSIC & EVERYTHING NICE EVERY WEEK
Oh yes, I'll finally be having something to look forward to every time I'm online. After 5-6 months of not having any tv show to watch each week, happy hormones are alive again! Yaay!

the help

I can't remember the last time I cried like this because of a movie. This brings alot of powerful messages hidden in the society for a long time. Racism and White vs. Black may have been given some solution already but the fact still remains, that even for this time, these still exist.

Let this movie serve as an enlightenment to all. Let this movie move everybody's heart and teach us all a beautiful lesson we all should learn.


I surely can't wait to watch this again and just cry my heart out. Lotsa tears and lotsa laughs as well!

8.21.2012

disgusted

I did not believe it at first because I thought everything were just rumors. Maybe I do not like to believe and my mind is still in denial in believing that you can do such thing.

But now proofs came up and all the doubts are then clarified. I'm disgusted with your acts. Very DISGUSTED. How could you do such thing? I know you did everything for us but this is just too much! This bad thing that you did erased every good thing!

Too bad I can't confront you with this. Maybe in the right time I will but for now, I'll just keep my mouth shut. I'll wait for the right time to burst my feelings to you.

This is unforgivable. You just turned on the RED light!

8.17.2012

Max

I finally gave in! After a week of thinking whether to buy or not, here it is, my pretty Fuji Instax 210 that I had named.. MAX

MAX and the babies

I've been suffering for weeks already for my brain and heart is battling if I should by this pretty boy or not, or if ever I'll buy an instax, should I buy 210 or the 7s. Now I'll be sleeping well. Oh wait, I don't think so. I'll be giddy to let the days pass and have some osm events in my life so I can put my Max into action!

It was all a test of patience buying my instax. I had to get out of the office and had to be back in an hour for my purchase since I still have some office works to do and if I stay a bit longer to finish all the tasks, the shop might close. It was even hard to get a taxi in front of my work building!! When I get to the shop, I was greeted with 3 lovely people. They had been so nice and friendly to me. Seems like they're excited too with me buying my first ever instax. We went on with a little chitchat about how playful and nice to have an instant camera. In my mind, I was like, HELL YEAH! I CAN'T EVEN WAIT TO TRY IT!

And for my first shots... they are mostly failures since I can't really aim to have my subjects at the center of the photos. T_T

first shot. I swear, my subjects were centered when I shot this! haha

now I'm not sure if I should use my left eye or right eye to look in the viewfinder T_T
These are just few of the many that I'll be taking with Max. I'm now all giddy and excited to see those osm prints coming out of Max's mouth. I know instax would be fun, but I never thought it would be this so much fun! WWWEEEEEEEE! If only films are cheaper, I'll be happier! haha

teehee <3 td="td">

8.11.2012

addicted

My current addictions...

Workaholics

If I haven't read the tv series description, I would have thought this would be in the drama department but nah uh! 3 goofs goofing around spending the whole time making humongous hilarity. Nothing serious at all! 

This is something that I need to forget about all the stress lingering near me. Good thing it's on its 3rd season  and I'm still finishing the first. Just means I will be sticking to this series a lil bit longer! 

FAVORITE CHARACTER: 
Oh, have you seen him wearing only trunks? *-P

Overexposed

It's been a long while since I got addicted to an album. Before, it was Jessie J's Who You Are and Far East Movement's Free Wired and my addiction to these albums before can't be compared to this. Overexposed has been playing for weeks already and LSS struck me every time! I don't know when this will end but I'm assuming till I memorize all the lyrics! haha

FAVORITE TRACK:
Lady Killer, The Man Who Never Lied, Daylight

July + August: La Tegola

We failed to have our foodtrip for July due to some "valid" reasons (broke, OT, and broke) so we decided to have our pasta adventure as our July and August foodtrip.

Though we already had some touch of Italian cuisine last June, we still went for it but this time, there was no sign of pizza on our table. G and Charles Anthony are still pizza-full even if the pizza monster attack happened two months ago. haha.

THE PICTURES:
the place
I do love the resto's interiors and decors. Truly felt like you're in some old place accompanied by some jazz-y music making the whole vibe calming and smooth. There were only few customers dining that time so our privacy was fully reached.

pasta platter
This dish was the STAR of the night for making the whole Italian experience worthwhile. 5 kinds of pasta in one dish only for php600. I fell inlove with the seafood pasta (one at the middle). The shrimps and squid totally won me over.

my php300 dish
I wasn't able to get the italian name of my dish. The only thing that I could remember is that it's composed of rolled beef tenderloin with ham and all other sorts of deli ingredients. I didn't get enough of pasta that I even had another one as my side dish instead of picking baked or smashed potato, and salad. OSM!

Overall, La Tegola made it to my list of restos that I would surely recommend to my friends. I'll definitely go back in here when the right time and money comes, to EAT MORE PASTA!!

sigh of relief

I guess panic and frustration could really push you to do things in an impulse.

From my rants in the previous post, I AM STILL VERY ANGRY WITH SMTICKETS, but I guess the kpop gods are still really very good to me and seems like I had saved a puppy from a truck speeding down the street in my previous life for they had given me the chance to buy a ticket before everything goes soldout!

blurred just to hide some details
I did not plan on going to SM in such a very short notice. 6PM strikes and SMTICKETS is still nowhere to be found. Checked all resources - twitter, facebook, blogs and no news yet as to when the site's gonna be fixed. I panicked already and since I did not want Sunday to arrive without any ticket purchased, I just then decided to go directly to SM and buy the ticket myself.

I guess that's the best decision I had ever made since when I went back and check the site, yes, it's fixed already but there are still some errors - picking a seat will just lead you back to the homepage, slow-as-a-turtle page load.

PLANE TICKETS - checked
CONCERT TICKETS - fyeah super checked!
FILE OF VACATION LEAVE - not yet
HOTEL RESERVATION - not yet

Half way done. GOOD JOB!

Whatta Saturday!

PISSED
PISSED
PISSED

I can't contain anymore my hurt and frustration knowing that the seat I had assumed to be SOON mine for the Bigbang Alive Tour concert is GONE in less than a minute or 2!

the purple seat in section VIP2. 

Announcements were already made few days ago, JULY 21, 1PM. I've been awake @ 5 FREAKIN' AM and been stuck in bed daydreaming until 9. Went online waiting for the ticket selling to start. 1PM strikes and I'm giddy as hell. Typed https://www.smtickets.com in the browser and BOOOOOM!!! Website not available

How great is that for a crazy and poor fangirl just wanting to meet my men?!

I should've just went direclty to SM. Been jealous alot for all those people who were able to purchase their tickets. And over-the-top jealous for that person who took my FRONT ROW SEAT!!! It could have been mine, I could have purchased it! But oh well, I have no hate for you dear, I'm happy for you being able to see our men in microscopic point of view.

And me, oh, TIME CHECK: 6:21PM. smtickets website, still NOT AVAILABLE. This is definitely one of the times I would want to wish for a time machine and for SM to be just beside my home.

Sigh.

This is the end of the rant about the FRUSTRATING PART OF BEING A FANGIRL.

Fifty Shades of @_@

Since almost everyone's reading this trilogy, I decided to follow the trend. Of course I wiki-ed this trilogy first and I already knew that it's erotic but NEVER DID I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THIS EROTIC!

Surely would corrupt innocent minds. These books should NOT be read by weak hearted and conservative people.

And fanatics are even considering this to be turned to movie. IS THAT EVEN LEGAL AND POSSIBLE? THAT'S JUST LIKE LEGIT PORN IN CINEMAS!!!!!!!!!

And the really overwhelming part, they're eyeing on IAM SOMERHALDER or RYAN GOSLING for CHRISTIAN GREY! NO NO NO NO! As much I would want these guys to be naked and steamy, I just don't want to dirty my thoughts for them and think of them as porn stars! Have other guy I do not know please!

And for hilarity sake, some wants ROBERT PATTINSON and KRISTEN STEWART! BWAAAAHHAHAHAHH! that's hilarity, level: STUPID!

Right now, I'm still on my first book, and about to finish. As I get going, the hotter the scenes and the more mysteries unlocked about Christian Grey.

sister

Me and my sister, we are close enemies!

We both show our sisterly love and affection through slapping each other's faces, pulling each other's hair, and cursing each other till our mouths bleed.

There are times that we agree on the same thing, and there are also times (MOST OF THE TIME) that we just hate each other so much that when I think of those good things that I wish to do with her, it just makes my blood boil and makes me think to NEVER EVER do those good things to her EVER!

I cannot say that our sister relationship is healthy and normal. We fight often and we don't usually talk about alot of things in life. I talk to her only when I need her to do some things, and she talks to me only when she is in need. Aren't we just the best example of great sisters?

But no matter how I hate her and her guts, even though it's awkward to say, I still do care for her. We fight today and tomorrow we're okay, then we fight the next day and then we make up the other day. Even if our setup is like this, I still can't resist on being a sister to her even in my own little ways. I guess that's how life works, blood WILL ALWAYS be thicker than water!

just look how happy we are to be beside each other! D:
Oh you little sister, better be good to me!

Im going. SHOULD!!!



My love and obsession for Bigbang is not a secret at all. In this blog, I had created posts for these men gazillion times already. All entries contain adoration and appreciation for them, their bodies >.<, performances and many others. I'm one of the many who had been a fan since we-all-don't-know-when.

Of course, part of being a fangirl is the desire to see your idols for real. Even if you can't touch them or shake their hands, it still makes fangirls pee in their pants knowing that their idols are just meters away from them. Seeing them means crashing out an item in the bucket list, and then going for the next mission: MARRYING ONE OF THEM! haha


So when I had found out that Bigbang is doing a world tour and they're gonna be stopping by here in the Philippines, I already then made up my mind to go and save up! THIS IS IT! I'M GONNA BE SEEING THEM LIVE! FOR REAL! NO MORE CRUSHED HOPES, NO MORE DAYDREAMING! OH MY EFFIN GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm gonna fulfill my fangirl dreams even if it means travelling alone for the very first time! I always fear going somewhere not very familiar to me. I don't want to get lost and to feel like crying and to feel homesick but I guess this moment is the right time for me to conquer all these. I'm a grown-up now, this should just be easy! CHARENG!

I'm looking forward to seeing my fellow VIPS during the concert too. All throughout my fangirl time, I had gained friends all over the Philippines and all over the world. Due to no reason to meet up, we were just happy in talking and chatting on fb, skype, twitter and chatrolls. This time, we all have a reason to see each other face-to-face. We all now will be seeing each other squeak and giggle. OMG, just the thought of it makes me all giddy and excited! KKYYAAHHH!!!!

I already started saving, and right now, I don't see any reason yet to not attend the event. I just hope my excitement will help me push this trip through. This happens only once. I don't know when they'll be back for another one. So why miss this chance?

Kpop gods, let me fulfill my fangirl dreams, take all the negative thoughts away. Lemme pursue this chance with flying colors and rainbows. May no unexpected circumstances be on the way! pretty please.

June: Mamma Maria's Pizzeria

This month's foodtrip includes a sweet party for A since she's celebrating her birthday a day after. Also, Karlo-san will be taking a leave (nobody knows for how long) and this will be the last time that the 5 of us, hungry people, will be together!

And since a lot of celebrations are up, we decided to eat BIGTIME!! and Mamma Maria's Pizzeria in IT Park is calling us!!!!

their 30-inch pizza
We ordered their Mamma Mia pizza XXL Party size Php1135. 2 1.5liter of softdrinks were already included. Pretty satisfying deal especially for hungry people! Pizza wasn't served yet but we already knew we all will be full after!

that's our pizza! FYEAH!
Since the pizza will take many minutes to cook, we started first with our dessertSSSS...
cupcakes c/o Sweet Little Things, cake c/o Red Ribbon
I'm gonna blame these sweets why I wasn't able to eat more pizza. I was half-full when pizza arrived. T_T

my OUR-PIZZA-IS-SOOOO-BIG face
This is what's left after raising the white flag
I'm lazy right now do any specific review for this restaurant but if you're ssooooo hungry and you're with your friends and you're in a tight budget and you all want to be tummy full, then you better check this resto out. Their wifi is also fast and another plus would be that their waitresses are accommodating and friendly! :D

goodbye :'(


My short vacation is over.

I'm privileged to be given the opportunity to work in NEC even for just 4 months. I was able to try something different from my normal everyday workplace. It was a blast of fresh air!

Even for that little span of time, I was able to grow as a better person with the help of my fellow teammates and superiors. They had showed me the different side of work, something gentle and kind.

If there's one thing that I mostly regret, it would be that I wasn't able to fully maximize my time to know my workmates more. We had shared loads of good laughs, there's also a hint of stress and pain. These make goodbyes hard enough to take.

To my CX20K team,
thanks for being awesome and cool. Til the next time we say HELLO and HI!

May: Ramen @ 168 Ramen House + Brownie @ La Marea

This foodtrip was the most unplanned of all. It was almost cancelled due to G and A's weekday OTs but we were glad it was pushed through. We hadn't raped google this month unlike the previous months since we all just decided to get some ramen, and since it was ramen we are all talking about, the help of google is not necessary anymore! all thanks to Karlo-san's japanese influence and ramen expertise ^-^

Also for this foodtrip, we are happy to have another plus one in our family of hungry people!!!! It just proves that our family is getting bigger and hungrier every month :D

Ladies and Gents, Charles Anthony Lerasan! WAHAHAHHA! full name ang peg
For our ramen experience, it was Karlo-san who picked the place. We ate at 168 Ramen House.

I wasn't able to take note of their ramen varieties and their prices but scanning through their menu, prices range from 250 - 400 pesos. A bowl could fill one's tummy and if you're on a diet / a person who eats less, you can share the dish with another person who'll finish it with you!

me with my big bowl! nomnomnom
A and G with their own bowls of ramen. 
I wouldn't say that there's something extraordinary in the restaurant. It's the typical type with waitresses serving you menus and asking for your orders. What makes this experience memorable though is that we were able to embrace japanese culture (for the 2nd time) through the osmness of ramen, naruto, veggies (O__O) and siomai!

After finishing a bowl, I was all giddy and excited to move on to dessert time!!!!!!!!

Since the ramen house's location is just beside many other restaurants you can ever think of, we had spotted La Marea and decided to try it for our dessert!!!!

The store serves desserts which, I say, are worth your every bucks! I was a happy customer when I left <3

the moment when you wish you have all the money in the world to buy these!
my taste of heaven! Apple crumble #*U$#HAWEY@%^LF@#$HAY$^ in a cup!
5 hungry mouths
I had finally found my dessert pleasures in La Marea. I'll sure add tasting every dessert in their menu to my bucket list. They not only serve warm brownie topped with ice cream, but also cakes, cookies, muffins and a lot more. I'm not sure if their desserts are a bit pricey or not but I am a bias for desserts and I tend to not mind how much I am spending just for a piece of sweet.

So that wraps our May foodtrip. Improving from 1 restaurant per night to 2, and from 4 foodtrippers to 5. EAT ALL THE FOOD!!!!!!!

AND RIDE ALL THE BIKES :))

Da Best Award


This week, I've been the awardee of our little team recognition. This award is given to the person who had contributed something beneficial to the progress of the team. I wasn't expecting it, SERIOUSLY, coz I know there were some of my teammates who had worked even harder than I did. But anyway, I did appreciate greatly the recognition knowing that my efforts were appreciated. It did boost my urge to work harder and do great with my tasks, but at the same time, it adds to the pressure of exceeding the expectations thrown upon me. If this is what it takes to improve my work attitude and to grow as a responsible employee, then CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

I love my whole CX20K team. I love my work.
