All my life, I’ve only ever bought one phone: a pinkish-lavender Samsung S5230 Star, procured after my mom’s hand-me-down pink-and-cream Nokia 7360 was lost in some Tropical Hut off the SLEX highway. I was stupid enough to leave it on top of a table I shared with my cousins and only realized it when the table was already cleared by one of the chain’s staff. Of course none of them claimed to have seen any phone on any table, even though my cousins and I were practically the only customers at the time. Needless to say, that first awesome out of town trip to Batangas with my cousins will forever be marred in my head by that unfortunate incident.

It’s taken me so long to update about my trip because there was just so many things to talk about. And also so many pictures! But here I am, sucking it up and telling you all about it.

So last April 8-16, 2009, my family and I (along with my dad’s camera crew) went on the 7107 Islands Cruise, which went around the most beautiful islands of the Philippines.

We got there late into the afternoon and basically just registered, checked in, played switcherooms, dumped our stuff in our respective rooms, and ate dinner.

Well, 2 birthdays and 1 anniversary.

Last Saturday, we celebrated 3 occasions: mine and my brother’s birthdays and my parents’ 29th anniversary. The party was held at 121 Restaurant & Bar in Pasong Tamo Extension, which is owned by a family friend. I seriously did not expect to have that much fun.

Ok, most of my high school friends weren’t there, which really bummed me out. But those who came were my closest and dearest friends. My college friends were mostly complete, plus a few surprises here and there. Hahaha! M12 people were also there, excepting the big M (his brother graduated that day, so they had a family thing). And of course my beautiful family. Having all of them there made it the best celebration I’ve ever had.

Well, that and the booze!!

The early UBE people (+ Zy, who's an official UBE girl now)

I love my cousins so much

Well, well, well! The big disappointer dropped by.

It’s my brother’s birthday today! Wish him a happy birthday everyone! 🙂

Today is my grandpa’s birthday. My grandma, Lolo Tony (Lolo’s bestfriend/uncle but younger than him), and uncle went to visit him at the cemetery, which is really close to our house. So they came by and are actually here at the office now. The oldies shared some crazy Lolo stories.

Happy birthday Lolo! I miss you everyday. I hope you’re partying it up with the angels right now.

(But knowing him, he’s probably sitting in one cloud corner, doing his crosswords while the angels celebrate his birthday. Haha!)


Is in her mid-20s. Is a girl. Loves to write. Loves taking pictures. Vents a lot. Finds her days too boring. Finds herself too sheltered. Wants to meet a faerie, for real. Swears a lot. Knows that's bad. Just might have too dirty a mind.
