2015!

12 Click Here To Comment
2015 has been a crazy year! (Ako tuloy montik na din maging crazy!) But all is well, as the saying goes - everything happens for a reason. Minsan ang reason ay para inisin ka lang talaga pero counted pa din yun, reason pa din e debarge?! :)

But seriously, I have learned so much this year. I learned that out of heartbreak there is regaining of oneself, out of change there is growth and out of budget means ang daming new clothes :)

I just want to make a countdown of 12 of the most meaningful people/things/events for me for this bumpy yet fun 2015.

1. My family! I'm beyond thankful that we are all complete, healthy and happy. We have been to a few out of town trips and it always has been fun. I could loose everything but as long as I have my family, I have everything I need. (Dun sa loose everything, hindi kasama ang hard drive, mga damit at ung chandelier ha dahil family sila para sa akin)

2. My friends! I have my old ones and new ones to thank for making 2015 fun. I don't get to see some of them as much as I would like but I know that they're always there for me as I am here for them. 

3. New work! I have a new job and after my so many years of working - day shift na to! Normal na akong tao na gumigising ng maaga, amoy shampoo na ang mga kasabay ko papasok, nakaka pag mall pag uwi, nakikipag siksikan pauwi at nakaka nuod ng On The Wings of Love real time (haha). I also love how nice and friendly my new coworkers are. Bagay kami as alam nyo namang Ms. Congeniality ako lels!

4. My first solo trip! After years of wanting to go on a solo trip, I was able to push! through with my plan. I was able to visit the lovely Bicol province. It was such a great and memorable experience and I look forward to going on another solo trip soon :) I have also been on quite a few trips with my friends, all of them fun and memorable (and bitin.)

5. I found a new hobby in biking! Thank you at may malapit na bike trail sa amin so I get ot go biking everytime I feel like it. Biking is fun as I get to clear my mind, burn fats and I get to wear my sexy bike outfit :) I also got to try wake boarding which I surprisingly can do without dying pero hindi ko naman masabing hobby ko na sya dahil dalawang beses ko pa lang na-try haha :)

6. More cooking master chef! I have always loved cooking and this year I got to experiment/cook more dishes. My new specialties this year are my super pasabog ramen and super pasabog Charlie Chan pasta :)

7. I have 2 new tattoos! Which I got on 2 of the Friday the 13th's of 2015. I love them both so much and I love how they did not hurt one bit :)

8. I'm back to drawing! I have always loved drawing and this year I've revived my love for it. Nagsawa ata ako dati kasi puro pa-drawing ng project mga classmates ko! Now I can draw all the weird sh!t that I want haha :)

9. This year I met my favorite DJ, DJ Chacha! Yes masa po ako at mahilig ako makinig sa love problems ng ibang tao haha. It was real nice meeting her! I also met Atom this year but I wasn't as glad with that as it wasn't as romantic as I hope it would be haha :)

10. I'm skinny! I have been fat for the first few months of the year and because of my bulimia haha working out, dieting, throwing up, I'm able to maintain a normal weight! Konting push na lang pwede na akong model ng Fit n Right with a dose of Silhuet 40!

11. My last relationship ended due to differences in priorities, lack of time, etc. It was my, I guess most mature breakup as it did not end because of a third party or something screwed up like that. It hurt at the beginning and it made me have a new view on love, but all is well sabi ng aking heart. Charot.

12. Kinda in line with number 11, the most important lesson I have learned from 2015 is that I need to value myself above anyone else (aside from my family of course). At the end of the day, people you love could choose something else over you, and that's okay because we all have different priorities. It's okay to value yourself first as you can't always count on people to do that for you. #walanghugotyan! #walangpait #binabadsatubigangampalaya

At ayan lang ang aking mga hanash. Sana next year mas bongga na mga hanash ko na hindi lang 12, kahit 13 naman ang nasa countdown. Tutal sabi swerte daw ang Year of the Rooster sa 2016 haha :)

And with that thank you for always taking the time to drop by and visit my blog kahit 3 months ata ako hindi nag post. Mag u-update na ako ng mas madalas promise. Pero sa nag comment nito na kanina ko lang nabasa..



..thank you ha pero hindi pa ako naliligo! At sana gwapo ka bago ka mang amoy ng kilikili ha. Kaloka ka.

Thanks again everyone. I hope your 2015 has been great but not as great as the coming 2016. Happy New Year and as always, much love from me to all of you! XOXO

Art In Island

17 Click Here To Comment

Last August ay naganap ang ANTM (Antipolo's Next Top Model), ang venue - ang Art in Island in Cubao! Bakit ANTM at hindi CNTM? Dahil wala namang show na CNTM di ba?

Ang last 2 contestants still in the running for being the next ANTM are me, of course and my not so little sister,  Ate Carla. Bihira ko makasama sa lakad si Ate Carla kaya super happy ako na naka pasok sya sa Top 2.
Anyways, dahil alam ko namang lamang ako kay Ate Carla, in terms of height, beauty, grace under pressure and everything else, pwera lang sa BMI, hindi ako gaano umeffort sa pictures.
Napag sabihan tuloy ako ni Ate Tyra dahil sa attitude ko. Napahiya ako at nanliit ng sobra. Sobrang liit ng tingin ko sa sarili ko. O di ba ang liit?
Kaya bumawi ako sa sumunod na rounds (rounds - naging boxing?)






Naging pabebe pa ako, maka level up lang :)

At dahil dyan syempre, ako ang ANTM 2015! Ang daming prize, kasama na ang centerfold sa Abante Tonight at modeling contract with Sarao Motors.

At nagising ako at tapos na ang dream sequence :)
More info na about Art in Island! Ang Art in Island ay nasa Cubao, super near lang sa Gateway and SM Cubao (syempre). Very accessible as long as hindi ka dadaan ng EDSA habang umuulan / or may rally ang mga winish na ulanan ng dinuguan. (Nabasa ko lang po yan, hindi ako ang nag isip or nag wish - disclaimer ng taon)

Art is Island is in a huge lot, with this huge building housing loads of interactive works of art. Kung sa ibang museum ay bawal hawakan ang art, bawal picture-an ng may flash, kulang na lang bawal tignan, dito syempre encouraged na magpaka OA ka at umeksena.

Ang daming scenes na pwedeng eksenahan. Mag allot ng mga 2 - 3 hours siguro at 1,000 calories to burn.
 
In case hindi kayo gaano magaling magisip kung anong angulo kukuha, may helpful markers sa floor para may guide kung san ka tatayo para kumuha ng pictures. Meron ding sample pictures para may gagayahan ka ng poses.
TIPS PARA MA ENJOY ANG ART IN ISLAND
1.) Wag pupunta mag isa. Hindi to magandang trip para sa mga loner, kasi ending walang taga kuha ng picture mo. Ending puro selfie ang kakalabasan. (ay maganda naman pala ang kinalabasan lol)
2. Kung kaya, wag lang pala dalawa kayo, mag sama pa ng isa or more. May mga scenes kasi na pang dalawagang tao, e minsan hindi kaya ng self timer so ending, mukhang tanga lang ulit. Gaya na lang ang mirror effect room.
3. Siguraduhin na marunong kumuha ng picture ang kasama/mga kasama mo. Yung hindi shaky ang kamay para hindi blurred ang pictures. Yung tipong kailangan madaming shots per scene kasi 1/10 lang ang malinaw. Derechuhin ko na, wag nyong isasama si Ate Carla.
4. Mag dala ng Neo-Bloc pangontra sa high blood kung hindi maiiwasan ang number 3.
5. Mag suot ng socks na terno sa outfit kasi bawal mag shoes sa loob ng Art in Island. Sayang kasi ang cute pa naman sana ng outfit ko pero okay na din.
6. Mag dala ng panyo dahil naka socks lang ang ibang tao. Malaki ang chance na may mabahong paa.
7. Be creative and have fun! :)
Art in Island is open from Tuesdays to Sundays. Open on Mondays ONLY if it falls on a Holiday. Rates for Adults: Php 500. For Students, PWD and Senior Citizens: Php 400. Children (or really small people) below 3 Feet: FREE!
May Birthday promo din sila; your admission fee is free if you visit them on your birthday or a day before or a day after :)

And that is all for this rampa, I hope you had fun as much as I did! Hope you could visit them soon para pasok sa next season ng ANTM :) Good luck and may the best model win! Thanks for dropping by guys, aldub you all! :)

Ang "Walang Makakapigil Samen!" Tagaytay Trip

11 Click Here To Comment
Last weekend ay may out of town trip kami ng aking bff's Emer, Myles, Chud and baby Marley - ang destination - La Union! Kaya lang bumagyo. Signal number 1 pa sa La Union. Saklap.

In denial pa ako nung umpisa, tipong "ah wala yan, hamog lang yan..ambon lang yan.." E ung eksena sa balita tila may yerong lumilipad sa La Union. So okay fine, nag wagi ka bagyo! Nag decide kami na sa Tagaytay na lang. Okay na din basta tuloy ang lakad! Dahil walang makakapigil sa amin! (Pwera ang yerong lumilipad)

Salamat sa aming yayamaning bff Emer, walang commute commute sa lakad namin. Naka car kami! At buti na lang kasi may kalakasan talaga ang ulan sa trip. Pero as long as walang yerong lumilipad, go sago. First stop namin for the trip ay ang Republ1c Wakepark sa Nuvali. Wake boarding habang umuulan - why not chocnut.

Medyo mahirap puntahan pag naka commute, ang Republ1c Wakepark. Kaya mainam na gumamit ng kaibigang nakaka angat sa buhay na may kotse / in case hindi ikaw ang kaibigan na yon :)

So eto na ang Republ1c Wakepark. Mam, sir, please click HERE for more information po.
We registered for an hour pass, worth Php 250. May deposit na Php 800 for the bote ng Coke helmet and life vest. Babalik din naman ang pera pag sinurender ang equipment kaya wag mag panic (ako kasi nag panic haha)
It was my 2nd time to go wake boarding kaya medyo hindi loser ang dating ko. Nag start kami sa Beginners area, syempre confident ako kaya nakataas isa kong kilay habang nag wa-wakeboarding at nanunuod ang ibang tao. After ng ilang rounds, lumipat na kami sa pang Intermediate - na mas malaki at paikot na body of water (haha) Level up inday! Bring it onnnn! Pero pose muna :)
Payat dito kaya isang picture pa! Sayang naman diet at montik ko ng ikamatay na 100 sit ups a day kung di ko po-post no! :)
Going back, eto ka, mas malakas pala ang hila ng kung ano mang humihila sa pang Intermediate! Naka tatlong try ako na subsob agad sa tubig. Yung kilay kong naka taas nabura sa kahihiyan. Saklap. Malala pa, nahubad ang shorts ko sa lakas ng impact ko sa tubig. Akala ko sa porn movie lang nangyayari yun pero totoo pala.
Pero buti na lang pag tagal naka yanan ko na din ang lakas ng hila ng kung ano mang humihila sa akin. Ibang level nga lang ang lakas ng hila, minsan naiisip kong "tama pa ba to? baka na Fi-Final Destination na ako a!" Pero super saya magpa hila sa kung ano mang humihila. Naisip ko ganito din ba nag rush pag pinahila ka sa kabayo ng malupit at walang pusong hacienderong amo?
At ayun! Natapos ang 1 hour at buti naman dahil ang sakit na ng braso ko. Try nyo din ang wakeboarding kasi super saya nya. Hindi kailangan marunong lumangoy kasi mababaw lang ang tubig. Hangang dibdib ko lang so hangang leeg nyo lang haha.

After ng malakas maka Sports Unlimited na ganap, pumunta na kami sa aming home for the day ang aking suking Tagaytay Haven Hotel! Pang 3 beses ko na dito, dapat next time may free pancit at chicken na.
Ang saya lang dahil na renovate ang Tagaytay Haven Hotel, gumanda na sya kaya magka level na kami. Ang room for 2 dito ay Php 1,500 at additional Php 500 per person. Dahil magulang kami, 3 lang ang climaim namin (secret lang po)
We napped (kasi pagod kami at matatanda na kami) then went out for lunch. We ate at Dencio's! Nabitin sa nap kaya umidlip ulit.
 Tumigil ang ulan so I was able to take a picture with the Taal volcano! :)
Mabilis ang pangyayari at pagka ubos ng pagkain. We went back to home base and napped again (haha) Woke up then had dinner then to cap the night we had desserts at Bag of Beans. #purokain
We had hot chocolate (Php 115.00), chocolate mousse (Php 110.00) - this is super decadent! At last nagamit ko na din sa sentence ang decadent.
We also had my favorite blueberry cheesecake, which is for Php 150.00.
Happy family! :)
Happy Nong-Nang (ninong ang ninang combined daw - ang taba ng utak ni Myla ) and happier baby Marley :)
We called it a night kasi night naman na talaga. The next day, pabebe mode and ulan at hindi sya nagpapigil! We had breakfast at Goto Me. Kung tatanong nyo kung saan ang Goto Me, katabi sya ng Itlog ni Kuya. Wala sya nasa singit o pusod ha, nasa tabi talaga sya ng Tindahan ng Itlog ni Kuya.
Matapos naming i-enjoy ang goto sa piling ng Itlog ni Kuya, check out na kami at pumunta ulit ng Nuvali. This time stroll stroll naman ang ganap. Ang saya sa Nuvali ang lakas maka sosyal ng place!
At tuwang tuwa ako sa dami ng fishy! Grabe lang ang katakawan ng mga koi na ito, dedma na sila kung wala na sila sa tubig, basta makakain lang. #masibangisda
Syempre hindi pwedeng wala akong picture with the fishy dahil sayang naman ang outfit ko at ang pinag puyatan kong eyebags :)
Madami pang pwedeng activities sa Nuvali; sumakay ng boat, mag bike, mag window shopping at kumain sa madaming choices ng resto. E umulan na naman.

So umuwi na kami, pag dating ng bahay, nahiga ako sa kama at umiyak. Haha nakaka lungkot pag natapos ang mga trip no? Pero okay na din, for sure madami pa naman lakad in the future. Lakad na hindi na sana bagyuhin at eksenahan ng lumilipad na yero.

That is all, friends and fellowmen! Pasensya na at puro rampa lang ang posts ko, dyan ako magaling e. Hopefully na enjoy nyo naman. Thank again for dropping by and as always, much love from me to all of you! :*
