Marching On…

Because I am currently addicted to Timbaland (your fault again, Joko.)

because I used to obsess on Justin Timberlake
and, fine–

also because there was a time when Jojo sang my life with Too Little Too Late
I am going to…

I will be there with probably half of the female population.

Dear universe, please make JT sing more than 5 songs. I love Timbaland, but I have no idea how on earth he can go all hippity-hop by himself. Also, if you can, find a proxy for Jojo… say Madonna!!!!!! For Four Minutes live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahahaha!!!

Masaya ako. Kinikilig ako. I love my family. I love my friends. At ang haba ng hair ko ngayon. Sana, ‘wag munang pagupitan ng universe! 😛

Ok, next time na. Happy Sunday!

My Stray Bangs and The Vice President

Hinabol ko ang Vice President ng Pilipinas, Noli “Kabayan” De Castro noong unang araw ng Philippine Daily Inquirer Job Fair sa Trinoma. Siya kasi ang nagcut ng ribbon yata. Sorry, hindi ako masyadong sure kasi lumabas ako ng Activity Center para magyosi. At dahil fan niya ako (at ni Korina and Ted… akala ko nga dati mag-asawa sila) noong bata ako, umeksena talaga ako para magpa-picture.

So, eto ang eksena nung hinabol ko (at ni Rolly, isa sa facilities namin) si Kabayan.

Me: Hello po. May I have a picture taken with you? I want to blog it.
VP Noli: Huh?
Nagulat siya, humarang ako sa dinadaan niya at ng mga bodyguards niya eh, hehehe kapal
VP Noli’s Asst: Sir, iba-blog daw niya. Online journal po!
VP Noli: Ah ganon ba? O sige. Pakikuhanan nga kami!
Tinawag niya yung photographer na kasama nila.
Picture picture!

Tinignan ko ang picture. Napasimangot ako.
Me: Thanks po! Pero pwede po bang mag-retake? Ampanget po ng buhok ko eh.
Pinakita ko ang picture for evidence.
VP Noli: O, bagay naman ha! Hehehe!
Me: Si Vice talaga o! Nambola pa. Pero di nga po. Ampanget po ng bangs ko. Kelangan cute ako sa blog ko.
VP Noli: O sige! O, kuhanan niyo kami uli para maganda siya sa blog!
Picture picture uli!
Tinignan ko ang shot.
Eto yun o…

After 12 hours ko pa narealize na semisorta nakakahiya yung ginawa ko (Oryx had to shout at me “Hoy ang arte mo, nagpa-retake ka pa, eh bise presidente ng Pilipinas yon!!!) but I was lucky enough that nice si VP. Nakachit-chat ko pa siya about what Always a Winner means (our company’s newest campaign).

Fans rin ni VP ang Mama and Daddy ko (adik sa Magandang Gabi, Bayan yung mga yon dati) and I’m glad I made them smile when I showed them the pictures.

Pero dito hindi sila nangiti. Natawa sila. Panget nga daw yung pasaway kong bangs!

My Newest Favorite Movie

I’m a sucker for movies about teaching and sports.

About teaching, because I used to be a teacher (preschool to college… yes, preschool… you read right… don’t judge… hahaha). About sports, because I’m athlectically gifted I like watching men and/with/play with balls (and other… errrr… devices) even if I have close-to-nil knowledge about the rules of the game.

Some of my favorite movies are Coach Carter, Mighty Ducks, Remember the Titans, Bend It Like Beckham, Cutting Edge and Friday Night Lights.

The newest addition to the roster is…

I should have never believed Joko when she said the film’s not so nakakaiyak, because I was already crying 10 minutes from the opening credits. Galing talaga ni Ate Sandra! Well-deserved acting awards for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy, the adoptive mother of the main protagonist, Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron). Major hagulgol na ako when the pictures of the real Leigh Anne, Michael and their other family members were shown in the ending credits. I must have finished a whole box of Kleenex.

Sample! Sample!

Leigh Anne Touhy: [from trailer] Find some time to figure out another bedroom for you.
Michael Oher: This is mine?
Leigh Anne Touhy: Yes sir.
Michael Oher: I never had one before.
Leigh Anne Touhy: What, a room to yourself?
Michael Oher: …A bed.

Such a beautiful, inspiring,  movie. In fact, I’m watching it again tonight, and I will finish another whole pack of kleenex. This time, not so much because of the movie, but because I have the sniffles. 😦

Went to Heaven & Eggs Glorietta before the Tagaytay road trip because Joko wanted breakfast.

Joko: I want Breakfast.

Joko: Mmmmm…
Iya: Iba-bribe mo ba kami ng breakfast para makinig sa kwento mo about your crushie likey?
Carla: Ano ba? Treat mo?
Joko: Oo na!
Carla: Yun naman pala eh!
Iya: pero we still need to take alcohol later before you make kwento about…
Carla: Treat mo rin alcohol?

Of Cubao-X, Cheap Margarita, Jabbawockeez, Eggs, Neon Pink Dragonflies and The Ideal Man

The word hectic was redefined last week as penge-ng-blade-maglalaslas-na-lang-ako. Thank G it’s already over. And thank God there were more fantastic experiences than the shitty ones!

I got to hang out with Joko and Van in the office, because I invited them to our special company event.

Joko and I went to Cubao-X to get a bag for her surfboard (Britney) but we didn’t get to eat/drink at Mogwai’s because it was jampacked. Bleh. Didn’t get to go to Central BBQ Makati either, because CJ said something about a kilometric queue.

Got to try the cafe in front of Saguijo. Guiza. real good cheap blue margarita. Only 70php. Their sisig’s pretty good, too. It’s the liver. Hmmmm… 🙂 Ang sagwa ng combination ko, but oh well! :p

Saturday! Our team went to McKinley for Musicfest 2010. I was lucky enough to join my bosses in the meet and greet with JabbaWockeeZ. And bless the company I work for for being a major sponsor. VIP, baby!

Yaaaay for afterconcert lamon at Andok’s c/o Boss V. Litson manok + sinigang = makasalanang midnight snack pero dedz na.

I didn’t set my alarm but I woke up just in time to join my friends for the Tagaytay trip.

First stop, Heaven & Eggs Glorietta. Brunch c/o Joko. Her first lagay so that Carla and I won’t get the BuzzZZzzZZZzzzz when she starts talking about her crushie. errr… her LIKEY pala.

Finally got to go to Banio Kreek Farms. Ang ganda ganda ganda ganda ganda!!!!!!!!!! I must have done something right kaya dinala na ako ng universe doon! Yay! Miki and I went down to the stream (fine, creek pala) and I saw dragonflies with bluegreen and neonpink bodies. I also saw a cat with eyes of different colors, left’s green… right’s blue. Nope, I wasn’t high when I saw those! :`(

Carlo’s Pizza Mile-Hi after for ze alcohol fix. their nacho supreme is now my ultimate favorite nachos! Thanks, Benjie for the discount!

So Carla, Joko, Kassy, Miki and I (Kwe supot! Wala! No Show!) had a mini-retreat again. Harhar. I semisorta can’t believe that they think A___, or at least, the likes of him is the ideal guy for me. Why did I let him slip away? :p

Well, I also let the neonpink dragonfly slip away…

Ponder that.

Pictures to follow. Watch out for my attempt to pull-off a modern day Snow white. My dwarves are Prancer, Vixen, Dopey, Sleepy, Slutty, Bitchy and Horny.


I promise, I swear I wasn’t high when I saw those!!! Disregard the tell tale signs! LOL.
