Roadtrip!

To usher in the Christmas break, some of my law blockmates and I decided to have  a roadtrip! Destination: Tagaytay. Woohoo!

Well not really. Haha! At first we really intended to study somewhere in the area, since it is our midterms already when class resumes. But then again, it’s Christmas and we’re supposed to enjoy and have a good time – so studying had to be rescheduled at a later time. :))

with blockmates: Karen, Roxie & Marck

Buffalo Wings for lunch!

Serenitea first-timers!

Availed of Serenitea's anniversary promo. JUMBO milk tea!

Trekking at Picnic Grove

Would love to use this for my Lookbook shot, but my eyes doomed it!

Happy Feet penguins! 😀

 

In other news, Mirza is back from France!!! (well at least for the holidays) Good job surprising everyone! Drank the night away, like good, old times.

We threw her a surprise despedida; she had a surprise comeback!

Here’s what I wore that day. Plaid button down (Arrow), jeans (Levi’s), blazer (Dean and Trent), boots (Lumberjack). Hype this look on Loobook here! 😀

 

Mountain Trekker

P.S. Look at the outcome of this day’s shenanigans:

The sole of my boot fell off!!! :((  Lucky me, this happened when I’m about to head home already. If it fell off earlier that, I don’t think I can stand the hassle and the humiliation. Hahaha!

Anyway, I wish everyone a  merry and blessed Christmas!!! May all of us get the happiness we deserve this season. 🙂

Long Weekend

So thankful for the long weekend! A welcome respite from all the stress that school brings. Went to Tagaytay together with my family and cousins. I’m actually tired of that place but my sister, cousin and I discovered a new fun way on how to kill time there. Hint: photos! HAHAHA. I’ll post them in the weeks to come. 🙂

The weather is colder than ordinary days because of the rains. Fortunately, Typhoon Mina didn’t totally ruin our vacation. The TV signal in our house was bad but I still managed to catch the Ateneo-La Salle game in the clubhouse. Woohoo nice game!! Perhaps the only thing I hated about the weekend is the eating part. Every gathering in our family seems like one big feast. The house is a bottomless pit of food – lots of it! I have a feeling that the following days will serve as a time to repent for my gluttonous acts.

The journey home took us more than four effing hours. Metro Manila traffic spilled over Tagaytay. Normally, the travel time would just be two hours or less. The worse would be around three hours during the Holy Week. I hope that  the officials there would do something about the problem since the place has been commercially booming recently.

Nevertheless, the break afforded me a good time to rest and relax. The next long holiday for me will be the sem break, which is like six weeks away from now. Can’t wait! 😀

Photo shoot with my sister and cousin. Will post photos soon. HAHA!

Exhausted after an afternoon of posing and smiling.

Don't be deceived. I really suck at bowling 😦

My twelve year old cousin plays better than me. Sad.

Last stopover: pasalubongs

Eternal Tagaytay staple - buko pie!

Photo Shoot: Back In Time

Still Waters

I have a confession: dressing up and posing for the camera is one guilty pleasure that I engage myself in.

Now that the secret is out, I want to share some photos of a shoot that I had with two of my closest friends, Kaye and Faye, last Thursday. Actually, we’ve been planning to do this since last year, but we always get caught up with the demands of school work. Thankfully, summer vacation gave us the time to spend an afternoon devoted to pure narcissism.

View the photos after the jump.

Skyway Sky-high New Toll

South Metro Manila Skyway System

It seems that living in the south would become a bit costlier these days.

Effective today, April 26, 2011, motorists passing through the South Metro Manila Skyway Project (or simply Skyway) would have to shell out more money for usage of the said toll road. The Skyway system, which spans the length of Buendia in Makati City to Alabang in Muntinlupa City, consists of both the elevated portion and the at-grade highway.
