I have been busy with life.
I can't say it's with school/studies.
But full of recreational activities.
And even though it's just the middle of the week
My friend and I have so many plans.


This afternoon was my very first soccer game.
Okay, BOO me!
Kins been playing soccer ever since
And I'm so proud of him.
Today, I got the chance to learn from him
And with his awesome teammates.
Not just me but the other girls too and Zac.
Makes me more proud.


Tomorrow, we'll be indulging with Army Navy's burger!
Plus onion rings plus milkshake
plus burritos plus San Mig Light

I'm happy!
But I shouldn't forget about my quiz bee tomorrow!

It was so hard for me to leave Bohol.
The place is surreal.
You can't just leave it.
Stayed for less than a day.
But I guess leaving Bohol is way easier.
The heartbreak was a lot lighter.

Because of the span of time we're together.

But a heartbreak is harder
When you've been together for long.
They say:
The moment you feel like giving up,
Just remember why you held on for so long.
Is that always the case?

nonsense thoughts.

i'm growing up!

You have to congratulate me!
Today, I made my own breakfast all by myself :)

My own version of a French Toast.

I know it's just a french toast but I still cooked it
in a pan. I dipped the sliced bread in a mix
of egg and milk. Plus butter.

plus hot chocolate milk drink. yummm...

My addiction for breakfast.
My mom approves to it because she was surprised
that I love it albeit it's made from egg.
And I don't eat egg.
Because I'm weird. :)
And it looks slimy.

nachos and concert day in campus

We had another Nachos day! Thanks to my friend Mina!
She makes the best cheese dip! I even got a copy of her recipe. :)

And because I love sharing I would tell you the contents of the dip:
50% cheese salsa, 25% tomato salsa, 25% milk
nachos chips, cheese dip, ground beefs and sliced jalapeno
The best!

digging-in the Nachos!

And OH!

Free concert later on the historical Main Field.
Take note of the word "historical" there.
It's just been proclaimed by the National Museum
as a Natural Cultural Treasure.
Together with the Main Building, the Central Seminary
and the Arch of the Centuries .

More reasons to love my uni.

waiting waiting for the concert to start.

Iboto mo Patrol ko concert
with numerous bands and singers!

student's life

and our life is just average
but we love it just the way it is :)

you don't have to tell me that our uniform sucks

our LAW2 class
he was telling us stories how he got ambushed before
he's small but terrible
he survived the ambush

while having our law class. Tricia smiles.
honestly, only a few people listens during our Law class...

and Kins is one of the few.. even our Law prof noticed that.

And me? I always, as in always, eat lunch during our Law class.
Because its time is 12pm-1pm. And we have our Math class before our Law class.
And we have 2hrs Accounting class after Law class. :)
It's always like this every MWF

And now it's time for our Accounting class.
My Accounting prof starting to write his lectures.
Kins putting up the white thingy for the projector manually.
Manually. hahahaha. 3rd world? No. It's just malfunctioning.

Then yesterday:

Instead of having our 6hrs Cost Accounting class...
We're being taught how to do CPR
And other emergency-to-do-things by Red Cross.
with FREE food. :))

Then my two buddies hang-out with me after class.

So that's pretty much it!

love post (4/?)

photo by Ac Cruz

I know I'm the cherry on top.
I'm a believer.

But sometimes its hard when you feel you're not.
You just keep your hopes up.
Knowing that you're only hoping.
Yes, that's the word.

It's so hard being in this situation.
I pray.
Thank goodness i have Him.
At least He loves me unconditionally.


(love post because I love cakes and I love to hate)

my friend Zac makes one of the best maki! :)

He brings maki to school so often lately. I was never a fan of sushi/maki not until now that he introduced me to it.


He just turned 19 today and he treated us pizza plus homemade makis. I got to take home 6. Makes me so full! Had it for dinner. Thanks Zac! :)

eiffel tower edition

I don't want any Louis Vuitton bags, H Birkins, Prada or any other signature bags.
I swear. I don't want any of those.
All I want is my own LONGCHAMP.
And I tell you, I will own one. I'm just uncertain when. :))

very chic and classy

Unlike other brands that's already made in China. Longchamp is still made in France. Authentic! And I'm lusting.
I love its simplicity, classic style and very versatile on any everyday outfit.

This is the only longchamp style that I want. And please be my Santa Claus. Isn't it everyday should always be Christmas?

Or should I just dream on?

xoxo, G

P.S. Don't tell him i want this! :-))

one word to describe my feelings last night.

first. because I fail. my camera's battery empty. and no one. out of 13 persons brought their camera. But I understand them. It's myself. I'm blaming. I hate it. Because no one could ever understand my sentiment. I love memories. And I want good quality photos of my memories. And awful is the right word. I know that's so mababaw to you but not to me. I could just laugh to myself right now.

second. because I was expecting to meet someone last night. I've been thinking about it all night the other day. Preparing myself. It didn't happen. I've been waiting a long time. For 17 months. Was that long enough? Yes? Now I ask myself. Am I not good enough?

What's with last night?

dinner date with friends. Kins birthday treat at Dad's G3. Everyone went home so full. I hope everyone enjoyed. And sorry, I've acted so wrong.

I hope no one reads my blog.

Can you just ignore what I've said?

BUT definitely not referring to the foods as AWFUL. It should be just FULL! I had eaten the most last night. I'm still full now! :)

First formal dinner date with friends. LAVET!

Can we just smile instead?

kins' debut!

This is so long overdue but I'm still going to post it anyway. It's my first time to organize an event. As in solely organize one and solely finance it.

But of course it would never be as good as this without the help of my friends! Special thanks to Kyle, Trish, Jancel, Jew... Thank you very much! They helped me with the guest list, reservation, program et. al.

Kin's chocolate ecstacy cake by hungry pac.

The first game: pass the balloon with a twist! Can you see? They're on their cutest kiddie outfit!

Another game: The cup thingy. :))

Grimace!! He grooved to the fullest! I find this picture so so cute!!

...and with the birthday boy! Grimace gave him a gift. sweet!

I love this picture. Everyone's smiling and laughing. Makes it all so worth it!

birthday boy with the kids.

and with his closest friends.

and with gorgeous Gem.

21 gifts.

After the games, we had our own version of 21 gifts for the birthday boy since it's his debut. Everyone said a short message for kins and something about their gifts.

Touché. Kins is so loved.

I hope we'll have another one quite like this again. It's so fun! It feels so good to feel like a kid again. Happy birthday!

Analog Love

Would you believe me if I tell you that I used an Analog camera on this?

Yes! That's right! :) I took this as an experiment while I was still udergoing my photography class. I was just a rookie and I am still (i guess?). We were required to use an analog camera first. Good thing my dad still have his analog camera in his treasure box.

Every after a shoot or when my film roll is ready to be developed, my photo buddies and I would go to Quiapo. They would have there photos printed but I don't print my photos. After developing I'll just have it scanned and I'll get all the photos in a cd. I prefer soft copies than hard copies. Because it's cheaper. :-))

ISO- 100 Speed- 1sec Aperture-f3

Then I showed it to my friends... next thing I know they're in my house already, ready for a photo opt. They told me that my bookshelf is so photogenic. Love.

word? word up!
