Happy Hong Kong 2016

Woooaaah! It’s been a year since I have traveled to Hong Kong for three days 🌸 , still my hearts feels so kiligs 💗. Originally, this travel blog is suppose to be posted a few days after my trip to HK but, unfortunately I got somehow busy at work and with my personal life, but more like reminiscing everyday how amazing my first international trip was 😆. Yes, honestly, my HK trip never sink until a year later (like OA ✌🏼) For real, this is one of the best days of my life! Promise xx

Let’s go Day One:

Five a.m. flight. Puyat  but super excited. My mom and my ate together with Tita Melody went to the airport two hours earlier than the flight time. [Fact: one of my childhood dreams is to ride on a plane. Nobody knew how I feels so fascinated about these planes whenever I see them up in the air that seems like they are so near with the sky and the clouds.] Since twas my first time to get inside the airport, my eyes were very busy observing everything that is happening around me and anything that caught my eyes. 👀

hhk-01

We did too much chilling knowing the time was too early, I almost missed my flight. Nerve-racking moment 💦 Running so hard, catching my breath, paying attention that I almost left my passport in the counter 😁 Geeez. I am excited that I got my seat by the window. Yieeppiee 👏🏼

hhk-02

Oh! I haven’t informed yet to you, that though this is a family vacation trip, but I got my flight earlier than them. This means that I got to travel alone, for my first plane ride, and for my first international trip. [Fact: One of my bucket list, is to experience doing things alone. Like watching movies, go shopping, travelling alone, etc.] The excitement never leaves me as well as being nervous at the same time. Hey. It’s my first time and I am alone, how could I not be worried about myself. 😨 When our plane already bounded HK, the view high up there was amazing. 💯

hhk-03

When our plane landed, as it was my first time, I just follow the passenger where they are headed to. Unlike in NAIA, where the immigration, the airport and the checking of baggage are just a walk a away, in HK you need to take subway to get to the immigration. The plan was for me to wait two hours in the airport so I will be together with my mom and ate passing through the immigration. But, I take courage. “Experience is the best teacher.” I fall in line and greeted the HK Immigration Officer a good morning, but I was still put on hold. My mind was like “What’s going on?” I really cannot explain how I am feeling that very moment, I just kept in my mind that I have to pay attention. They just ask me few questions with my work in the Philippines, who I am with & what I am going to do in HK. Maybe I was too young for them to be travelling alone, so I was put on hold. Wheeew! I pass through the immigration after the short interview. 🙏🏼 Their terminal is so big and bright. Still nervous, the walk around the airport and look for McDonald’s where our meeting area is. I sat there and wait for mom, ate, and Tita to arrive.

Then, we had our way to our mini hotel at Cosmic Guesthouse to leave our baggage and rest a while.

🌸🌸🌸

Day One. First Stop. Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery

Though jet-lag, we cannot waste a day just resting in our mini, so we had our first stop for the day 📍Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. From the hotel, we rode two trains and walk along Sha Tin road until we reach the place. The location of the monastery is quite hidden, maybe because it’s holy for Buddhists, that needs quiet place.

We walked along the lined-up human-sized all golden-colored Buddhas in different sculptured positions–others are seating standing, holding something,– clothes, and faces. Walking up to the temple is really breath catching. The weather is not cold, it’s the same hot as the Philippines’ but a hot windy one, plus the stairs are inclined like your climbing on a mountain.😅

hhk-05

After the long and sloppy walk we reached the temple. The temple is big, the ambiance is so peaceful, you’ll feel it’s sacredness, little candles were lit up in the wall beside the giant all-golden Buddha. ⚠ You cannot take picture inside the temple. Outside the temple is a very spacious area, you’ll feel refreshed because the place and you’ll feel the cool wind, still, there are many Buddhas displayed, still in their human-sized, some are colored painted.

After the long and tiring walk down, we’re off to our Second Stop!

Day One. Second Stop. Snoopy’s World 🐶

hhk-06

The attraction is located at the Ground Floor of New Port Mall that’s why there are so many people taking pictures with the human-sized figures of The Peanuts cast. ℹThe attraction is free to all, no admission fee.

I love how the Snoopy-themed circles around the whole area. From the library-themed reception area, seeing the red-colored roof dog house where you’ll see a giant Snoopy lying around with his little yellow bird friend Woodstock sitting in his stomach, and his human-sized little cute friends 😍

I am really amazed the the whole attraction. 💯 Really feels like I am a kid again, amazed with this all these cartoon figures around me 😂 👧

To end the long day, we had our dinner at Cafe de Coral, where, of course, Hongkong meals were served. I had Tomato Beef & Egg with Rice and a Red Bean Cooler. One thing I have observe with locals is that they’re always like moving in a fast forward x2 phase. 😂

🌸🌸🌸

Day Two. To the “Happiest Place on Earth”, Hong Kong Disneyland 🏰

hhk-07

Kiliiggggsss 😍 I am always lost for words when I am going to look/talk back with my experience in Disneyland. I don’ know, it feels really fulfilling as it was one of my three childhood dreams. It really left me speechless from the moment I entered until the moment I get off to the Mickey Mouse train. 💯👌 Indeed, it was really magical 🎇 Okay, let get started.

We don’t have any itinerary for our second day in Hong Kong, only to the place where my forever is: Disneyland! 🎉🎊🍾

We got our Octopus card today at the subway station, this card is like a debit card that you can use to pay everything you buy in Hong Kong. We ride subways and drop off to three station until we get to Sunny Bay where Mickey Mouse train awaits, the only train in the station that drops you off to Disneyland. How cute 😍 Everything you see inside and outside the train are in it’s Mickey shape; the windows, the handrails, and the figurines displayed inside the train are all Disney characters. Even their tickets are printed in Disney characters too! 😍

hhk-08

Childhood Dream No. 2: Go to Disneyland ✅ (and have a photo w/Mickey & Minnie)

The park was still closed when we got there, but really, the are many people already waiting. The sun is so up that day, but more than feeling hot, I am so very exciiiteeeeddd! 😁 I almost cried when I see Mickey and Minnie in a club car waving the the people near the entrance gate. 😂

When the gate opens, all the guests fall in line so our ticket and bags could get checked.

As always, I am so amazed about everything I see around me, I guess all first timers feel the same way 😅 I really can’t believe I. AM. LIVING. MY. DREAM. 👊👌💪

hhk-09

First up, Photo OP with my favorite couples in their Hong Kong traditional costumes. Though the line was long and the weather was a hot one, seeing them so near me, really feels kiligs, I feel like my heart was melted and I am so excited to touch them and have a picture with them 💗💓💕💖💞💘💝❤️️ (yes! I am giving all the hearts!) This the best day of my life (maah lalalaaaayff! 🎶 oh, sorry can’t help but sing!) 🎆🎇

Below are the attraction we have experienced on our one day adventure to Disneyland!

  • Mickey PhilharMargic, an amazing 4D theater experience;
  • pretty little-girl-kid-at-heart-feeling inside me at the Fairy Tale Forest with kiddie-made interaction to see the Princesses 👑;
  • our first ride experience at the Slinky Dog Spin Ride in Toy Storyland!;

hhk-10

  • a motion story -telling experience in the Mystic Manor;
  • short and too cute Rainy Day Express Parade with Mickey and Friends and some of Toy Story characters in their raincoats while riding the train. choooo~chooot~~🚂 ;
  • a fun and easy experience shooting the enemies at the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin;
  • a trip around the world in It’s Small World! 🌏;

hhk-11

  • a crazy, breath-taking, extreme ride at the Big Grizzly Bear Runaway Mine Cars 😵😨;
  • the spectacular Disney “Paint the Night” parade of the night (that leaves me speechless, wow-ed, and teary-eyed 😭) and,
  • the magical Disney in the Stars Fireworks display and it’s beautiful presentation in the wall of Sleeping Beauty’s castle 🎇🎆

Everything I did and see in Disneyland we’re all my favorites (of course, this is s dream come true!) But, these that still leaves me breath-taking is the spectacular parade and the magical night of fireworks display. It was so amazing, it was indeed so magical, splendid (and all the amazing words to put on!) 💯💯💯

To make this magical experience in Disneyland, I bought a Mickey Mouse waffle to end this perfect-dream-come-true day!

hhk-12

🌸🌸🌸

On our last day in HK, we still have few places to go ➡

Day Three. First Stop. Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

It was just me and my elder sister who wanted to go to this museum, since it has been over the internet that Lee Jong Suk’s wax replica was displayed and so is Lee Min Ho’s. Yes, they are our Oppas! If you ahve already read my blog last November titled “22 Facts About Me”, it’s a three-part blog, I bet you already knew that Min Ho is my first love among the Korean actors nowadays. But I guess, the odds are against us this time, because either Min Ho or Jong Suk’s wax replica wasn’t on displayed. We have asked, but they told us it was under maintenance. Still we enjoyed. I saw Taylor Swift, TVXQ, Nichhun from 2PM, Siwon Choi from Super Junior, Queen Elizabeth, Einstein, Kim Soo Hyun from the Korean hit series ‘My Love from the Stars’, Jackie Chan and so many more. There are also interactive activities, like dressing yourself as a KPop Idol, dressing up Hello Kitty and even fitting some gang’s just like Jackie Chan! It was so amazing to see this wax statues like they were real ones because they really looks like them 😍😮👍🙌

Day Three. Second Stop. The Peak

hhk-17

Going to The Peak, we ride on the Peak Tram, it a train that will take you to The Peak, the highest view deck in Hong Kong, where you can see the whole view of Hong Kong. Sadly, the rain pours and it’s foggy up there, we can barely see the breath-taking view, we just took few pictures and came down.

Day Three. Third Stop. Victoria Harbour 🌆🚢 (our last stop in our last day in Hong Kong)

[Day Three] ❤❤❤ #hongkong2016

Lagaslas Picnic Grounds, Pagsanjan

This April I had experience my first summer for this year in Pagsanjan. ☀

The whole team was meant to spend the summer outing/birthday celebration of one of the best-est guys, Drew, at Pagsanjan Falls. But, obviously, we didn’t, but, hey, I am still so happy that we get to spend this summer, 1. TOGETHER. COMPLETELY. 👌; 2. quite very far away from home 🏖; and 3, we swim with the nature 🌴 Yeeheeey 🎉🎊🙌🏽

I cannot give you the directions how to get there because we are jam-packed in a jeepney owned by the birthday boy and his uncle knows the way. I am sure that we have traveled for about two and a half hours– yea, it’s pretty far (and I love long roads and road trips), no stopovers, with a lot of tawanan, chismisan, asaran with a little nap sometime 🤣😂 no dull moments! how fun~~

Finally, we reached Pagsanjan! 🌊

As I have said, we are about to spend time in Pagsajan Falls, since it is one of the famous spots here in the Philippines, but the boat ride to get there was too expensive and everyone cannot afford to pay. Maybe will take it sometime soon but for now, Welcome to Lagaslas Picnic Grounds, Pagsanjan!

Pass through this heavy flowing current and rocky grounds to get the kubo we rented for us to get a place to stay 💦 and eat boodle! 🍚🍴🍖

Tip: remove your slippers when you pass through the currents so you won’t slip because the rocky grounds are slippery. 👍🏼

2017-04-20-20-38-41[1]

📌 This is a screenshot of an unfiltered 0.5 second video, but sadly, wordpress won’t allow me to upload since I am using the sites for free 😂

My feet felt so happy just a dipped in the cool and clean water, though I was struggling to make a step again the current and balance myself to get to the kubo. 😊

I wasn’t able to take photo with the boodle fight we had since everyone was so busy trying to help out to set-up and arrange the foods, lay-out everything, resting quite sometime since because of the long ride, and me, so busy observing every corner, every scenery, and everything about the place because it was my first time.👍🏼

The ambiance of the place was very nature, there are so many trees that surrounds the place, with lined up nipa huts, the stone ground make it more nature and the cold water coming from the falls makes the ambiance more refreshing 💯

The main activity here in Pagsanjan is to see the Pagsanjan Falls by riding the boats, shooting the rapids maneuvered by boats men that costs Php1,300/person. Besides this activity, you can also rent life buoys for only Php 20.00 unlimited use, to experience river rafting, float along the river and do cliff diving.

For me, I just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming (just like Dory. HAHAHA 😆) I think river rafting was fun because my friends tried it for like three times and they call it as “Rio Grande Rapids” of Splash Island. 😉 I love how refreshing the coolness of the water. It was definitely perfect for beating the heat!

The view was amazingly awesome 👍👌👊💪☝️

The layering of the view was so great from the clear blue sky, the light and heat of the sun that makes you feel more about ‘it’s definitely SUMMER 🏝☀️, the green high tress that surrounds the whole area, the different size of rocks in the ground, the nipa huts makes the ambiance more of a province and these serves as the resting place for the tourists and the locals, and of course, the wide river that is superb refreshing!!!

20170409_134502📌 FINALLY!, after 123456789 months, we have our complete present photo in our swimming outfits! #sevenyearsandcounting #poreberprends 💪🙌👊

That’s it. It’s my first summer short getaway this year since summer is just starting and I am so looking forward to my next summer getaways this year. I am pretty sure there is more. 😊😉

Calaca, Batangas

1/3

Last January 13, together with By and Arra, we visited Arra’s province, Batangas.
From office, we traveled two hours to Balayan, Batangas via van. It was just two hours but since it was our first time to go there, I think it is more than just a couple of hours. Hehehe (you know, it’s always like that for first timers *wink*) We have’t take a nap during that couple of hours travel because we have many things to talk about in and out of the office. When we get to Balayan, we waited for our motorcycle service, care of, Arra’s cousin, Tiano and uncle, Kuya Ariel. I was really nervous, though it wasn’t my first time to hitch on a motorcycle but, I was not that trustful enough (hey, i can’t be on an accident right now!) But, because I was left with no choice, I don’t to be a brat (because I am not one), even my heart was pounding so much, I rode it alone. By and Arra was on the other motorcycle.My heart was still pounding so much (and it never gets tired all way long), until be reach the highway. When I thought the we are so near, when I saw the ark of Calaca, Batangas, well, we not, we are still not yet there.
Setting my nervousness aside and the sound of my so-hard pounding heart, I was impressed and amazed with the full moon and its light with the clouds distant with it and the dark sky the makes the moon lit so bright. Yea,I really enjoyed the ride and I was smiling from ear to ear, so full of myself, forgetting the throb. I don’t know how long the ride is (but I am pretty sure it was a long ride), and finally, we reach Arra’s house.
We rest for quite sometime and eat dinner (we haven’t eat yet since we out from the office. tag-gutom bes!)
Then, we are set to have fun in Perya (Funfare). Since, Calaca will be celebrating it’s feast by Sunday, there’s Perya (Funfare) in town.
Just a little fact: Perya (Funfare) is a small themed park build during fiestas that has not-so extreme ride and fun games.

We first roam around the whole place. It was not as crowded as I expected, maybe becasue it was so late night at around 11pm. The rides are already closing and the games are somehow coming to an end. We met some of Arra’s tall cousins. We just try to play with the games that are still open at that hour just to feel the fun. We popped ballos using darts and guns and played Bingo!
Then, we head back home, take rest, watch movie, and talk more. We haven’t rest that much since we arrived, so By was the first one to knock off, me and Arra still taliking and finished the movie, though we didn’t understand at all. Arra’s cousins we’re still at the corridor (taliking bout their curennt love issues, oh, kids!)
We slept at 2AM, compressed in Arra’s bed. HAHAHAHA.

2/3
We woke up late the next day. I really wanted to stay in bed, I feel so sleepy. When Ruby called Arra, informing her that it’s like Otep was outside.
Oh, Otep. Arra has been telling stories about this cutie patotiee kid that didn’t like smiling at all and even his cousins posting a bet on who’s gonna make Otep smile. And it gets us interesting, that we wanted to meet him. Now’s the time.
Just like the usual first meeting, it seems awkward I mean its awkward. I have this “giliw” thing with kids, since I am the youngest among the family, so I never played with a younger brother or sister. So, I tried to get close to Otep. And, viola, I did, we did.
Mornings with the kids! Otep was the other way around Arra told us. HAHAHAA. Otep smiles and plays with us. We also get to know Tino and rayven. Otep’s playmates, our play mates rather. The morning just goes being kid again. 🙂

Because we got up so late (than the 7AM call time), and we are so pumpled up playing with the kids that we never get tired to end it, but still we ended by lunch. We freshen up and get dressed. Without eating lunch, we are on the go! Arra takes us to Niyugan still located in Calaca, Batangas. We are are hitched in three diffrent motorcycle.
I never thought that the ride there was a triple times than the ride from Balayan to Calaca. It’s like the turns and the ups & downs were endless. Arra’s says we’re at foot of the mountain.
The air is good, cool, the sorroundings are full of tress and tall grass, though the sun is so out and ou feel that the heat is striking your skin. Nevertheless, it was fun. And the fact that I love long roads/rides, its fullfillng.
It’s like an hour drive with no stop overs. (whew!)
I never get the chance to take and picture the whole ride because: 1. the throb of hitching is never comforting and 2. i am not brave enough to loose/drop my phone. (it’s like my life has been spare everytime i get off the motorcyle whole. HAHAHAHA :D)

Brgy. Niyugan is also celebrating it’s fiesta by that time. I remember Arra when she bought cake to give to the house we are to get to. And I was like, “Bakit may pa-cake? Sinong may birthday?” then Arra explains that it’s aleays been like that. The same way with Christening and Nuptials (but still there were way more big differences, this only ones the same). And I was like okay.
Then, we ate our lunch there. HAHAHHA (that is why Ara didn’t cook us lunch, because we will be taking our lunch at her friends’ home) Hihihihi 🙂
We also met her friends, Puti and Hapon. They joke around us too and tell stories about Arra wayback then. It’s like where have know each other just how long they have know Arra. Maybe Batangenos were like that, they won’t treat you other or just someone’s visitor, they’ll make you feel like you’re home. They don’t even want us to leave early or have a shot before we live. (sympre, nahiya naman kami ni By)

We left there late afternoon, and head back home. Same long roads travelled. Feels sorry to our kind motorcyle driver, Tiano. 🙂
We took our short rest and then where ready to go to the sea! (wooohoooo!) Its just a short tricycle drive and a few walks.
The sand is black and not as clean as the beaches, but the smell is pure salty. It was definitely the smell of the sea! I get my feet soaked and walk quite far just as long as my shorts wouldn’t get wet.
It’s comforting just in time when I needed it. (you know, I love beaches and so is the sea!)

Next stop to the wet market. Becasue the next day will be Brgy. Dacanlao fiesta, Arra get a big help from By for the foods to be prepared.
I am trying so hard to extend a helping hand in every situation that I know I can help. Because I am not good at anything than offering a help. (and i hope i’ve helped.)
Once done, we head to the Lomihan that us featured in Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, we’re Lomi Batangas taste so good. (though the serving is slow.)

We ordered two different type of lomi, 1. The Original Lomi and 2. they call it, Lomi Guisado.
1. The original Lomi is the usual lomi with noodles with thick sauce. For flavouring, you need to squeeze the calamansi, add few chopped chili, pour just the right amount of soysauce, mix and taste. When the taste is enough, pour some of the mixture to lomi and taste.
2. While Lomi Guisado, they called is served on a sizzling plate with vergetales topped with chicharon and few meat and the cooked noodles separated with it’s soup. How to eat? (i am not sure about this but,) just pour a bit of sabaw and and the same soysauce mixture for flavouring.
We don’t got to eat everything ‘coz we are full so we have to take out the remaining Lomi Guisado. (personally, i like Original Lomi most. swabe~~)

Last stop for the day? Back to Peryahan, becasue we don’t get to enjoyed the first day ‘coz the rides our closing, though we didn’t have much time this day too (again *sad face*). We just et Otep enjoyed the mini games we had last time and we ride the Vikings! I am not scared of extreme rides as long as I’ve got a friend whose a brave one, but there is always something to be bothered about. I am scared that the ride might get broken and led an accident. But, thank God!, nothing happens. T’was all fun!
Then, we head back home to prepare the foods to be cooked for tomorrow’s fiesta!!!

But, the night doesn’t just end finishing the chores to do and the places to go to. There is more fun awaits as the night deepens. Inuman session is definitely the night ender! This is or last night here in Dacanlao so I guess, we call a celebration! HAHAHAHA 😀
We four, have so much fun that we take the second bottle down. I was a little bit tipsy so I talk too much. HAHAHAHA. (fact) I never get drunk. Our days ends a 5AM the next day.

3/3
HAPPY FIESTA DACANLAO!
We supposed to wake up at 7AM the morning, but no one wanted to take the firststep to wake up. We are all glued to bed, but there is so much more to do! (“espiritu ng katamaram, lumayo ka sa amin!”)
We ahve no more but to move our butts! We went to Talipapa to buy meat for our Caldereta and Adobo (i am still in my pjs as we walk along the highway)
Had Kapeng Brarako for breakfast coffee! Beside the fact that I love coffee, the smell is so good and so pure!
Then, we started to cook. As I have mentioned earlier, I don’t know how to cook so I always find something to do that can help By and Arra. Though the meat is quite hard to soften, we still finished and prepared everything before lunch.
By three, we are so read to go home eve everyone else wants us to stay.

I bought Kapeng Barako and Atachara for pasalubong at home. Calaca’s Atachara is so good, it’s sweet and a perfect partner for Adobo *two thumbs up here, please*
~~

It maybe a short three day trip, but it’s an escape from the stress in the city and a our first time trip together. I really did had fun!
A shoutout to Arra for taking us to her hometown and made us feel like home. Thank you ‘le beshie~ *hearts*

How I have been?

Hey there dear blog! I am so sorry for bring idle for the past couple of months. But now I am back with vengeance. Joke *peace sign*

I really tried to carry out doing my three-part ‘Facts About Me’ blog post in celebration my blog’s one-year old. *insert birthday cake and balloons emoji*

I have been so busy lately –getting quite much stress from work, bonding with my favorite circle of friends, playing with my cutie-patootie nephew, Noel, watching teleseryes and Korean Drama, building blocks, reading mags, and overthinking too much.

Now let’s go back in time.

Let’s start to the most wonderful time of the year, December 2016 *insert snowflake and pine tree emoji* to 2017 *fireworks!*

 

Last year’s December was a bit different unlike any December for the past years beside the fact that it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

At office, we had Monito-Monita every Saturday, for the first time.

I had seven out of nine completed mass of Misa De Gallo and spent the last mass/last day of work with my current favorite person/bully-buddy.

The first time I genuinely enjoyed the company’s Christmas party from the kiddie games, a slide to the pool, never forget the Inuman sesh, and the karaoke –that made me feel I am the vocalist of the band head-banging while singing #whenalcoholhitsyou *OOPS.*

Stressful gifts shopping for the fam and the co-workers. Stressful. Yes, you read it right, ‘coz I never have the eye on what to gift for someone unless I know what cartoon they like. But, whew, I gave everyone a present last Christmas. *achievement unlocked*

Cooked desserts for Noche Buena. I am not apprentice this time. HAHAHA. Will be taking over the kitchen! Got it wrong frequently with the measurement of the ingredients because I was so excited/nervous/”iwishitwillturnoutwell*fingerscrossed* –doing it for the first time in forever. Relieved that the Apple Crumble turned out good but not the sweet they wanted. The Maja Blanca turned too sweet that you cannot eat another one consecutively, so that’s a fail and it’s Mom’s fault. *peace* The gift-giving was my favorite part. Surprised that Kuya has a gift for everyone. Of course, Mom helped him to pick one because it’s not really his thing. *sorry kuya, just telling the truth here. but, thanks a bunch* Thumbs-up.

Divisoria shopping with Mom. Bought three building blocks, my current interest.I have build a sweet shop, more looks like a Dunkin Donut stall and a cake shop. Visit my Instagram @remimi_ to see these lego Mini Shops. Finally, I have my flower crown after Mom lost the first one we bought. I don’t know why I always wanted to have one. I guess to make myself a Dyosa or at least feel like one lol because I do believe that flowers are always be beautiful so I think it would make me one lol xx

New Year’s eve routine? Watch KBS Drama Awards. Sad that Uncontrollably Fond didn’t won any awards. It was one of the KDramas that I won’t forget. It gives me feels every episode and Kim Woo Bin as Shin Joon Young was in his best acting I ever watched.

 

New Year’s Day with the Best-est guys eveeerrr! I always gets kiligs with these bunch of handsome. Thinking that we are on our seven years of friendship since 2011. We have grown from these highschoolers to professionals. Wooow. I guess some people never change. #prendsporber #forkeeps #cheerstosevenyearsandbeyond

Second day of the new year with my #forevergirlfriends. The usual bond? Kainan! We do mandatory monthly catch-up so we cannot miss each other very much. Facebook group chats were our thing. We never fails to catch-up each other even over the phone. I can’t wait to out next trip together after our Baguio City way back 2015. Ilocos here we goooooo!

The start of the new year have been so good to me but who knows if it will be all through out the year. I guess unexpected heartbreaks could happened but I wasn’t expecting it so soon. Heartbreakingly (if there’s a word like this), I got silent war with my current fave person/bully-buddy, and she texted me with the most unacceptable message I ever had never received. It tears me up so much. I was crying like a kid whose parents won’t buy the doll she wanted to have. I slept with my tears falling. I clear myself for every sentence of her message and I saw her tear up in front of me that makes me broke inside. It’s lasts for week and I miss her and I miss her every single day. Felt touched, by the next Monday, she came to me trying to help me with some email issues, and told me she missed me (and so I am), teared with the first conversation we had after the silent week, and laugh like nothing happened. Yes, we craaazzzeeeyyyy.

~~~

There I have been.

22 Facts about Me || Part 3

Happy one year old to twentyonepost.wordpress.com 🎉🎉 *wooohoooo*
And, I just turned twenty two today! *plays 22 by Taylor Swift*
👑🎂🎈🎉🌸🌻🌼

We’re down now to the last part of this facts and I am more selective to what I am going to spill out about myself ;)🙊 Hehehehe 🙂

#15 Favorite Time of the Year : Christmas Day 🌲❄🌟
It’s really the most wonderful time of the year! Sharing your day with your family, giving gifypts, going to church and celebrating the birth of Jesus. Happiness is everywhere :):) Oh, those lit up sparkling lights, the cool breezy Christmas air 💚

#16 Dogs 🐾🐾🐾
I love dogs. Suddenly missing my favourite dog, Raichu, who passed away a couple of years ago. He’s been with us since I was a kid and it really broke my heart when he died. He’s short and not a furry one. He was so gwapo than any other dogs. You can hug him all you want and he never bites. *crriiii* We one little Gorio today, and he’s very malambing 💕

#17 Adventurer & Traveller 💪
I wanted to try everything. I always wanted to try something new, some thing different, something I never tried before. I am up for challenge. I remember the first time I tried hiking with my friends, it wasn’t easy though, but it was definitely a whole lot of fun 🙂 I wanna do things like, cliff diving, night out, and travelling alone, and others that world has to offer 👌 I wanted to travel all the beautiful places in the Philippines and almost half of the countries around the world before I die. It’s a bucketlist, then 🙄

#18 God-fearing 🙇

#19 All Time Favorite Cartoon Character: Mickey Mouse 🐁💘
He’s my forever and it will never be replaced! HAHAHAHA 😍
I just love everything about him and Minnie too. I will never forget the kilig they brought me when I saw them in Hongkong Disneyland. 🏰 PS. I also love his pal, Pluto, and his friends too 💞

#20 I hate cockroaches
Ewww, those flying ipis 😷

#21 I’ll go shopping alone
It’s ME time! 😁

#22 Current Fangirl-ing: James Reid 💘
Oh my heart 💘 I just love everything about him specially the way he talks. Just picturing him out makes me fall in love. I guess, his role as “Clark” on On the Wing of Love will be my forever favorite 💕 *kiligggs*
I hope to see you soon James 💋

22 Facts about Me || Part 2

*drum roll please*

#8 Beach, please! 🌊
I looves beaches. 🌴 I may not be able to wear swimsuits but I love beaches. I love the sand, the heat of the sun, the smell of the salty water, the sky, the sunrise and the sunsets 💘 Everthing the beach has to offer!

#9 I hate complications ❌
I learn to live a happy life. Well, maybe not at all times because problems to arise unexpectedly, but I would rather be giving up on what I want than to fight over it. I can have what I want when I’m alone. Simple problems has simple solutions too. If not, then, lilipas din ‘yan.

#10 All-Time favorite food: SINIGANG
I would choose sinigang over any other foods on the menu. 👌
I like it a little spicy and more “asim kilig“, lots and lots of kangkong and gabi, plenty of “sabaw”, served hot ♨ Whether it’s Sinigang na Baboy, Sinigang na Bangus o Sinigang na Hipon, I don’t mind. No more talks, as long as it’s cooked, SINIGANG 👌

#11 Buy my own car.
This has been one of my dreams when I was still a child. There are three, and those two came true just few months ago–to ride on a plane and to go to Disneyland–only this one’s left. Oh, I can’t wait to make this come true 🙂 Work, work, work ⌚👜💳

#12 I love flowers 🌸🌹🌻🌼, balloons 🎈and fireworks ✨❇
I am deeply inlove with flowers. It makes me feel beautiful, blissful and it makes a day brighter 🌞 Balloons, I always wanted a few on my birthdays but, nah, no one knows that 😕 and fireworks, I love how loud it is, when I sw fireworks, I was always amazed, it feels so free and true just how you see it 💖

#13 First Love? Lee Min Ho 이민호
💟💞💝💘💗💖💕💓
All the hearts. Heheeheee ✌ 😂
He will always be my first love from all the handsome Korean Actors of today. I watched him from Boys Over Flowers, Personal Taste, Faith and The Heirs. And I am so excited and I cant’t wait for The Legend of the Blue Sea that will be aired so soon! *kiliiiigggggssss*

#14 Take me to MALDIVES ✈.
I never had any places I wanted to go to add on my bucketlist after Disneyland. I read once, that every girl’s dream dreams to be in Paris, so I quite wanted to go there too. But, when I saw the beautiful pictures of Maldives, I’ll go for this one. 👌 I wanted to have a vacation in Maldives, in their most beautiful beaches and places 😍

22 Facts about Me || Part 1

Hello November! My birthmonth and the birth of this blog 🎉 *happy danccceee*

So, today, I will be telling few things about me, besides the truth I am trying hard-er to be a blogger. Hahahahaha ✌
•••

#1 I am not a morning person.
I figure out this one around six or seven yeara ago when I was still a highschool student. I came always late in class or I better skip the morning classes because I was late for thirty minutes. I remember when I was in college, it was midterm week, my class was so early at 7:30 and I came late and saw my professor writing on the board, I really cry hard outside the classroom and everyone in class was so worried about me and to my surprise, our professoe was only giving a brief review for the cover of the exam and that was a relief. 😧
During weekends, I always got out of bed at 12NN and ready to eat lunch. Hahhahahaa 💪

#2 A Money-Saver
It all started with a 20-peso bill keep from my everyday baon when I was ni HS. My Kuya teaches me how and it became a habit. I don’t buy things impulsively. I always thinks if I need it or I really want it, ot if I buy it would I have enough money left, or should I save up more and buy it later. 👍

#3 My Very First Male Celebrity Crush: David Archuleta *claaapsss*
I love everything about him. 💘💘💘 (the end. :))
My favorite song is “My Kind of Perfect”. Well, it was just perfect 💖
And my favorite of his revival is “You Are My Song”, it was a childhood favorite and I bet, it will always be. 💘💘 *crriees*

#4 I would choose Carbonara over spaghetti
*slurrpsss-the-air* 😂😂
Now I crave. Hahahhaa 😂
I just love the combimation of the milk and the cheese, very creamy, and to add on the bacon, uhhh, it’s heaven 😀

#5 My love-hate relationship with the rain
I love rain, because they say it’s a blessing. I feel comforted when I am sad. It makes me kinda sentimental and reminesces good old memories. I just hate it when I have somewhere to go and it’s a gloomy one, just that, no more no less.

#6 Favorite Movie: National Treasure / Now You See Me
Nicholas Cage was so good in National Treasure. I love how the movie goes. And oh, the Four Horsemen, I was so amazed with the tricks they did from the first movie, they got me caught from the very first scene. And the card game on the sequel, it was breath-taking 🃏

#7 I am bad a doing my own nails
I can’t have my nails grow like the one I see on TVs. I can’t cut them to make them in shape so I tend to cut it sagad and let them grow again. When I don’t want to cut it, I always try to make “slowly but surely” way to put on nail polish but it always have to end up a mess. Hahahahahaha 😣
•••

Ooops. Let’s stop here for a while. And watch out for the second part!
I will be posting it soon. Hope you guys see me interesing at the very least. Hehehheeee ✌

I had a great long weekend 👊
