Vivid Led Mirror

No. I don't sell this. I got this as a Christmas gift from my sister. :)

And I loved it. Best suits my vanity.

That's the best thing about it! It has 6 super bright white LEDs with an ON/OFF switch. The battery is also replaceable.

You can see for yourself. Here's their site: froufrou

current craving. i miss my Nama. I know you want it too. XD

days of fun

Dec. 23
- went to Pasig by myself to deliver something to dad's client. I took the jeepney alone. As in. I think my dad's teaching me a lesson. He dropped me at Sta Mesa and told me to ride a jeep going to Pasig. With no other instructions. I was hella nervous. I don't know if I could make it there without crying. But I made it. eventually.
- got a call from Kins inviting me to watch Avatar with his sisters and nieces. Since our client's building was just a stone's throw away from the MRT, I decided to take the train to Ayala. I was so tanga. I didn't know what to do at the MRT. I should have taken the cab but then that's the faster way. It's already 5:15pm and the movie will start at 5:30. I made it to greenbelt at 5:50. I was late but I didn't miss a lot in the movie. Kins and I were seated 4 rows away from his sister and nieces. After the movie, I was kinda nervous because it's my first time to meet them. Yes, first time after 16 months.
-stroll a bit. then ate dinner. I was tired and I wanted to take the cab back home. But since it's a day before Noche Buena. The cab station was jam packed. I took the MRT back home. Then the LRT but it was closed na since it's already 10pm. I wanna cry. It's the only way back home I knew. But thank God! I got home.

I know what i've said is nonsense. It's just that I've typed a lot. I don't want to delete it anymore.

Dec 24
-Noche Buena with mom's side at grandma's place. We have a very huge family. I kid you not. We had a whole lots of games like pass the sharades, the boat is sinking, soda drinking games for the kids and kids at heart, Pinoy Henyo for my aunts and uncles (my parents joined and dad wasn't able to guess it). My cousins danced. Karaoke after. It was soo much fun!
-The best of all- the FOOD! My lola cooked everything. It was so delicious. She knowsour favorite foods. :)

Yvan, Gavin, Joan and Bianca. My sooo kulit cousins!

with some of my cousins

Paskuhan '09

The morning of paskuhan day, kins and I decided to go at Greenbelt first because I've been wanting to shop for myself. We agreed that we'll buy gifts for each other. It took me almost 2 hours to get a cab. Christmas rush. No car.

For an hour of window shopping we got tired and looked for a place to dine in. Kins' first choice was at Felly J's. But the waiting list was so long. It would take another hour for them to accommodate us.

I asked him to dine at Pepper Lunch instead. But we both know it wasn't opened yet at greenbelt 5 but I insisted that we'll look just in case. And ta-da!!! It was on its soft opening. It was really my day. :)

Kins eating his Chicken teriyaki and miso soup.

We had a really great spot there.

After eating we headed to SM Makati to meet my sibling and we'll shop for presents for our family. My ate was soo late. I got really annoyed at Kins and I asked him to leave me. And so he did. Quite shocking. So I shopped myself. It took him ages to return. When he did it really got into my nerves. I was so not in the mood. Then after quite some time, he gave me a number and asked me to get something at the baggage counter for him. Hmmmm... So I did. Surprisingly it was the Charles and Keith's shoes I've been lusting early that day. I really love his ways! :)

Then we met up with my sister and cousin in tow. Shopped for a little while with them then we left them. I wanted to do my turn on buying my present for Kins but we're on a hurry to get back to school for Paskuhan and our friends are waiting for us there already.

We took the train back. It may not be the easiest transportation here in the Metro but it's the fastest because of the traffic this season brings.

gem and jewel.

The wedge shoes I've been talking about. I'm sitting on our college newspaper. :))

This was the most awesome paskuhan I have ever been. Its so nice to celebrate it with good friends. It was my first time to witness paskuhan's fireworks. Kudos for UST! 400 days countdown to 2011.

gift wrappers.

gift wrapping is my most favorite thing to do every Christmas season. Of course besides shopping. :)

I firmly believe in the adage "It's better to give than to receive". Albeit my college friends and I agreed that we won't be giving each other presents (because of lack of funds:). But then Kins and I surprised them.

Last thursday was our Christmas party. Been panic buying the days before. And spent the whole night last wednesday wrapping the gifts. My theme was red and gold.

Whoa! My sisters and I went shopping at SM Makati for gifts for our family. I left them early because Kins and I had to rush at UST for paskuhan party. I asked them to just buy boxes and wrappers and I'll be the one to wrap it up. But then they insisted to gift wrap it at SM for free. I was surprised how classic SM's gift wrap now. No more baduy gift wrap at SM! Yay!!!

Do you love receiving gifts with awesome gift wrappers? I DO!

December 6, 2009

exactly a month.

exactly a month since i blogged.

"What I had for lunch" should have been an everyday post where in i would take photos of my food. but i don't have the time to blog. Accounting is killing me.

But I survived just like what our college shirt says:

Kins and I at uni after our college parade last November.

There are a lot of happenings I should have blogged about. Just like Kins and I turned 16months on the second of this month. And here's a peak of our webchat:)

(click the photo to enlarge:)

we've just met earlier that day in school but it feels like i've missed him for so long when we had this web chat!

Have you had enough cheese?? haha. Okay, enough about kins and I.
