Great Gatsby: The Roaring 20's

December 15th was the date of our company Christmas party themed, Great Gatsby: The Roaring 20's. It was held in Wack-wack Country Club, Mandaluyong City.

Well, as always predicted, I was fashionably late for the party. But I wasn't alone this time because my dear friend Sabrina gave me a ride, thus we were both late. When we arrived at the venue, the party has already started and everyone was almost finished with their food. Good thing we arrived just in time for our performance (our department let's newbies perform in a competition during the party). Since I do not have a cam anymore (thanks to the robber who took it months ago), I only relied to those who brought theirs. So, here are just a few photos I got from my friends. Haha!

Summer in December Weekend

We've been planning to go on an outing trip for ages and thankfully this one became a success. And so we headed to Club Balai Isabel. By we,  I meant my team, along with the Ivan Parco and Jaypee Santos.

Twas a sunny Saturday morning when we headed to Batangas. I did not know exactly which route we passed since I was like asleep the whole trip because of an upset stomach. Alas, we arrived at our destination way earlier than expected, thanks to the brilliant driving skills of Ms. Arianne Sy. It wasn't time to check-in yet so we looked around and did some picture-taking! After a quite while, we went to Tagaytay to grab some lunch at Carlo's Pizza.

Unfortunately, because of my upset stomach that was probably brought by the iced tea I drank while on our way without having breakfast, I ended up throwing up during lunch maybe because the iced tea triggered my hyperacidity. I really felt sick and all I wanted to do was lie down in bed. Good thing when we got back to the hotel, we can already check in. So I just then I went to my bed and sleep. I was just awakened later that night when it was time for dinner, which simply implies I was asleep the whole afternoon (lame. loser. boo!).

1920's Costume

Hello there everyone!

I am currently deciding on what to wear on our Christmas party with the theme, "Great Gatsby: The Roaring Twenties". I wanted to be a lady gangster, but I can't decide which of the following options will I use and transform into a 'modern lady gangster'.

Take a look at them:

Filipinos don't usually celebrate Thanksgiving. But since there are a lot of things we are so thankful about, why not celebrate it together with those from the Western part of the world? Well, minus the turkey and the pumpkin pie of course. Besides, it's Jaypee Santos' birthday so why not celebrate?

Here's how our Thanksgiving party went, in pictures!

Nothing special actually happened but I just had to share this blurry photo I took using my camera phone. Wala lang.

I actually wanted to capture 11:11 o'clock but missed it. Hence, here's 1:11! :)

A Short Break

I just had my shortest vacation ever that fell on a loooong weekend.

Oct 29 - My flight bound to Bacolod was at 10:05 AM. I didn't know what happened, but despite of several reminders that I need to be at the airport earlier since a lot of people are going home, I left my apartment around 9:15 AM. My cousin (who is also my housemate) is the one getting more nervous than I am. She keeps sending me BBM asking if I missed my flight or not.

The Last Quarter

For this year, I believed to have lived a life with 'a curse'. That curse is to lose something very important, one each for every quarter. Now that October just started, I have to be extra careful with my valuables. I won't post the things I lost until end of the year, coz I'll have to see for myself yet if this curse would really take one more stuff away from me. For now, there are just a few things that makes me excited for 'The Last Quarter'.

On Being Free and Indepedent

At an early age of 22, I can honestly say I am very much free and independent. Yes, I believe I am. Not convinced yet? Let me share to you a few things:

I am free and independent because:

When I get sick...

I know, it's been a while again since I last blogged. Pardon the laziness. Anyway, I just wanted to blog about how my folks take care of me whenever I get sick, coz currently I am. My all-time nemesis strikes again, and asthma is the name.

I've been living away from home for a quite sometime now. FYI: I'm no runaway kid. I just chose to venture into a different place where I can exercise my freedom and independence. I can honestly admit that even at the age of 20, I was still very dependent to most of the people around me. But guess what? Not anymore.

Just Saying

Every time something not so good happens to me, I do away with blogging because I don't wanna post rants and complaints as much as possible. But please spare me this post, and allow me to say a few things.

Torn Between the Two

I wanted to go to both events but I can't seem to find a way to do it. Way back college days, I can go to multiple parties/events without turning down one. I am just the kind of person who wants to be there. For me, one's presence is something already. So as much as possible, I don't turn down my friends who ask me out. Right now, my dilemma is whether I should go to...

Super Late Mid-year Update

I know, I haven't been blogging for ages. It's just that I think I have this what you call a bloglife crisis (or does it even exist? LOL), or whatever you may wanna call it. I am also super busy though I always have time to surf the net (but of course!), I can't seem to find ample time to blog. And there are some instances when I had the chance to write, my mind would suddenly go blank. Am I getting old, or something? Anyway, to fill in the great hole in my blog, allow me to refresh it by sharing the update for my New Year's Resolutions.

Labor Day

It’s the first of May, and I don’t feel like welcoming it due to some personal, silly reasons. But my cousin is very insistent that we go out so after going to church we went to SM North EDSA. Trivia: Did you know that it was the first time that my cousin went there. Uh-huh! You’ve read that one right. She has been working here in Manila for a quite some time now, say 3 years, but she was not able to set foot to the said mall. Maybe she was not just that kind of mall person like me.

Meet The Bloggers

Let me share to you a story of my day during the Manila Bloggers Fest last Saturday.

I woke up really early for me not to be late but, here's the catch, I wasn't late but I was ALMOST late. So, I ended up riding the van going to the venue instead of having to meet and greet lotsa bloggers in the bus. Most of the people in the van seem to know each other na, so I did not bother to meddle in na lang. Then when we reached the resort, I was sort of curious if I am the youngest blogger to attend because most of the people there looked, you know, old (no offense meant). And I was like, will I fit in here? Not to mention that I was the only one asked if I was already twenty-one when I was handed the free casino ticket (or maybe I did not just hear them ask the others).

Manila Bloggers Fest

I've always wanted to join events with fellow bloggers, but I guess thought that I am not yet ready to mingle with great bloggers with amazing blogs, although I signed up hoping that I can go with my friend. And yesterday, fate proved me wrong because I was able to attend my first ever event at Thunderbirds Resort for the Manila Bloggers Fest. Alone. Yes, alone.

It's Official

You might be wondering why on earth it took me a while to create a new post. We'll, it's because I don't wanna fill my blog with rants and negativities. As much as possible, I just want to post all the good things. So, I kept "silent" for a while. But I am back on the grind, people!

The Picnic

I have been going out for two consecutive nights already. Now, the time has come that I should just sit and chillax under a relaxing environment. So, I went together with my Ates in the office to Rainforest, Pasig City (which was a long way from my place pala, so I was practically tired going to and fro). The sun was not so hot and the coolness of the air that surrounds us is just right. It was a perfect day for a picnic. But technically, what we had was only half-way to picnic because we were not able to bring picnic mats, so we ended up renting a cottage at P100.

Anyhow, we had a great time. We also toured around the mini-zoo and the mini garden, took pictures and just had fun. When sunset came, we called it a day.

I hope you'll also enjoy the pictures!

Sabado Night

Serren just turned 21 on the 31st of March, but since it falls on a Thursday, he chose to move the celebration on a Saturday. He was able to gather friends of different cliques--the pharmacists, medtechs, nurses and other relatives. Although his family and best of friends weren't there to celebrate with him, I guess he also had fun that night with us.

We rented a KTV room at Sing Side in Dampa, Macapagal. And we ordered food in Aling Tonya's (which is basically the one we always went to when I was still staying in Cainta). Here are some of the photos taken tonight:

Sa wakas, 21 na daw sya! LOL

Friday Craze

It's a Friday once again and everyone is excited. Today marks the 1st of April--which is commonly known as April Fool's Day. Luckily, nobody at the office seemed to throw a prank at anyone, thus I was very relieved. FYI: I am always bullied at the office, how much more on a you-can-get-pranked day? Anyways, the day just went on smoothly. And in the afternoon, we gathered at out conference room to have a little salu-salo for Kuya Yong's birthday (I am not really sure how old he is already).

A picture.
The Cast.

Someone left a comment in this picture on Facebook saying that it's just like a photo of the famous series Gossip Girl. Oh yeah? Well maybe. I love this pic. We look so sophisticated here. And I am glad that I am in the middle. It made me feel stand out somehow without trying too much. Besides, if this is really a photo for a movie or series, I can become the main character or the leading lady. LOL
