How I spent my Christmas break so far (Part 4)

December 23

Woke up at noon but just in time to have lunch with the family 😀 My mom got me new contact lenses since I ran out of supplies already and the one’s I have right now always hurt for some reason – plus my eyes turn red and I somehow feel like I look high or someone with sore eyes. So I did another round of #healthyholidays quick workout, but this time it was for the core area since my legs hurt from the sexy leg workout I did the day before.

Our choir had to practice for the last Simbang Gabi mass at 1am the next day so I decided to take a quick nap and stay up until the next day. I woke up and I ended up marveling at the wondrous and lovely singing couple from X-factor, Alex and Sierra. These two are just… well, their singing can speak for itself, the way their voices blend together makes me melt, plus their chemistry is just perfect ❤

Here are my two favorite songs they performed on the X-factor USA:


Say Something:

But I suggest listening to their rendition of “Give Me Love” by Ed Sheeran and “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men. 😀 After my Alex and Sierra phase, I had that talk with my boyfriend, the kind that I probably needed. Sometimes people just need someone to slap some sense into them just so they could realize a shit load of things and although I cried my eyes out about who I want to be or where do I want to go, I definitely had a moment of clarity after.

December 22

I woke up at around 1pm so I basically slept through the whole morning. It was pretty much a lazy Sunday for me. But I did catch up on my #healthyholidays workout! It’s been a while but I thought about working on my legs and stomach since those parts of my body have been… jigglier so to say. It was a quick workout though, just enough to make me sweat through my pajamies and have that awesome post-workout shower 🙂

My sister and I went to mass later that evening and stayed inside my room for most of the night. Just looking through some youtube videos and some short films on video. Plus catching up on some books I’ve been dying to read and re-read again 😀

How I spent my Christmas break so far (Part 2)

December 20 – December 21

I went back to Taft to take care of a few things for the squad. Then we went out to MoA to watch the Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. It was a fun trip since I was driving and Emer was shooting the driving route I was taking, as well as the scenery I we passed by on the way. One thing I disliked though was the fact that it was extremely traffic on the way to Taft, I mean seriously. It normally takes me around 20-25 minutes to get (via Skyway) and yesterday it took me an hour to get there 😐 I guess it’s because of the Christmas rush and everyone wants to get out and have fun and all.

Anyway, while waiting for the movie, we decided to roam around the mall to check out some of the shops. We were looking for a shop selling Go Pros but we couldn’t find any so we just looked at different clothes stores. We were obviously just window shopping but it was fun to look around since most of the shops were on sale and we couldn’t resist our natural urge to look at the marked down goodies. For some odd reason we were really early for the movie, so we were excited to watch the trailers of the upcoming films, but sad to say, the cinema didn’t exactly show us any trailers at all (which was truly disappointing for a Comm Arts major), I was really looking forward to films I could watch next year, but no. Oh well. At least we had a ton of pop corn and Cha Time!

With the birthday boy! :D

The Hobbit was about 3 hours long, but it doesn’t shy away from what you would expect from the Trilogy. Overall it was a compelling film to watch, I enjoyed more because it had more ‘umpfh’ into the film, or maybe it was just because Legolas was too much for my life. Kidding aside, it’s the 2nd installment of the Hobbit Trilogy so it presents the climax of it all. The ending was literally a cliff-hanger though, but I am excited to see everything lead up to the third and final film.

We had dinner at Joey Pepperoni, then we drove back to Taft where I finally gave him his birthday gift (it was also an early Christmas gift), a new pair of shoes! Stayed in Taft to officially greet him first (yay). I don’t really want to be too cheesy here, but I’m glad we got to spend our last day (for this year), together. I definitely had a great time!

Happy birthday bic! I love you 🙂

I can finally say, I’m on vacation! Well, for now that is. I have around 15 more days before school officially starts it last term for the year. I’m honestly really excited for next term, I’m not sure why but it’s probably because it’s a new year and I’m looking forward to learning more things at school.

Out and about with my friends! :)

Dinner at KhaiJi with Mia and Marga 🙂


December 19, 2013

After turning in my last paper for the term, my friends and I had dinner at KhaiJi, a Chinese fusion restaurant located at BF Homes. To the person reading this post, you should try out their Peking Style Crispy Chicken! It’s crispy on the outside, but really juicy on the inside, it’s definitely something I enjoyed eating. We also had fried pork (I forgot what it’s called sorry!) and it was my first time to try something like that! Not too mention my chinese resto must-have, Yang Chow fried rice! I’m a picky eater but I’m trying to be more open to trying out all kinds of food. It’s time to leave my eating comfort zone! Marga’s blockmate owns the restaurant and she left her some cupcakes she baked the day before. Marga let us have some and it was really good! 🙂

I’m really looking forward to spending more time, and eating out with you girls again 😀

One fateful transaction with the Mafia Lord can lead to quite an ending.

ABOUT PROJECT UNICORN: Our professor asked us to create a three-minute short film using only six lines of dialogue: “What is that?”, “It’s a unicorn”, “Never seen one up close before”, “Beautiful”, “Get away, get away”, and “I’m sorry”. It was up to us how we were going to interpret these lines and incorporate them into our short feature.
