2016’s Bes

HI GUYS OMG DID U HEAR THAT YES THAT’S 2016 ENDING.

With a bang if I may add. Sobrang kupal ng taon na ‘to na hanggang sa huling sandali madami siyang paandar. Pwedeng awat na, mumsh?

BUT! In fairness naman and to 2016’s defense, on a micro-level (naks micro???) it isn’t as bad as it looks. In one of my conversations with Sosep, we agreed that this year for us is pretty okay naman all things considering. It doesn’t hurt to be grateful and celebrate the good things that happened this que horror year.

So that’s what I’m going to do! Presenting my 2016’s bes(t):

1. Hello 25, it me.

aka THE ULTIMATE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP. I spent my birthday with my friends, family, and the love of my life: Jollibee.

2. Live from New York!

I’ve always wanted to fly to NYC and it felt like after THREE FAILED ATTEMPTS and countless hours of waiting at the airport, when the boarding pass was handed to me to FINALLY fly to JFK parang maiiyak yata ako bezzy kasi pakshet +19 hours ‘to of panis laway. Char.

WELL IF IT ISN’T WORTH IT.

I also got to spend time with my aunts and cousins which is pretty friggin awesome!

It’s weird that I only got to spend three days with NYC but there is still so much to see and experience! I miss it… wow clingy????? Sana makabalik ako next year! Sana marami rin akong anda!

3. Music!

My resolution for 2016 is to go out more. And go out, I did. Ika nga ng nanay ko, “SAAN NA NAMAN ANG LAMYERDA MO??”

Best pa rin ‘yung eLBindiefest kasi hindi ko kinailangang lumuwas! PLUS, my favorites/friends got to experience the LB crowd for the first time!

4. Friends!

Going out more comes with meeting new people and spending more time with the old!

5. Lucas and Tita B diaries was born!

I think we can all agree na ang tunay na ~*star*~ ng taong ito at ng buhay ko yes wow ay aking super duper cute sungit at sutil na pamangkin!

When people comment na uy ang sarap ng may bata sa bahay kasi may laruan kami. Ang totoo niyan, kaming lahat ang laruan ni Lucas. Hindi mo ‘yan mauuto. Laging may panabla hindi ka mananalo diyan!

Patay nga lang kapag in-english mo na. Ganito ‘yan:

Person: Hi Lucas, how was your day?

Lucas: I’m four!

Malala.

Kung essay writing contest ‘to, talo na ako. Ayoko na mag-reflect, guys. Pagod na pagod na akong mag-isip…

Magmamahal na lang ako.

ARUUUUUU YES WOW BAKET PAANO SINO KAILAN SAAN

If you’re one of the reasons why 2016’s ain’t so bad, ty po! Cheers to making new friends, exploring new places, passing my comprehensive exams, graduating, and falling in love in 2017! The best is yet to come!

Luv u guys lyk a luv song!

In one of our team’s year-end activity sessions in Batangas, we were tasked to mold something out of clay that was a symbol of us. All I could think of were quotation marks because if ever I’ll get a tattoo (okay binigyan ko ng idea nanay ko hehe hi mother in case you’re reading maliit lang naman yon eh!), that’s what I would get. Just, “ and ”. I also love to read and having conversations. Sabi nga sa The Interview, “You know what’s more destructive than a nuclear bomb? Words.” PREACH!

I guess, in a way, that symbol shows my insecurities too. There are way too many times that I feel incompetent because of my lack of writing skill (harhar). Also, I run to my books whenever I feel sad. To fill my thoughts that aren’t mine… ARTE? Pagbigyan na bagong taon naman! ‘Tis the season to be senti falalala lala lala la

It was a few days after that I realized I should’ve done another symbol. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it.

I’ve always loved taking photos. This is not since I was a little girl kind of thing because God knows I loved playing with Barbie dolls and Polly Pockets. I wasn’t artistic. More like dramatic. Haha! I think it really started in college because UPLB is just too damn beautiful. I remember this one time, I was kind of sad and heartbroken that I decided to walk around campus. It was my first photowalk. I was very tourist-y and I didn’t care. I had this one photo of the Carillion tower which was a beauty. Then I started taking photos of people, just random stuff as my attempt to document my college life. 

I received a new phone with a kickass camera for Christmas last year. Why not use its features extensively? HAHA. Arte ng extensively. Also, I have never completed ANY 365-day project in my life. Kahit yung mga 100 days ekek tinatamad na ako agad! So to have completed this feels soooo good. ❤

Here are my favorite photos from my Project 365

Happenings: My weekend in LA

Yes you read that right! I spent two days, two nights, and six hours in LA. In short, nagpagod lang ako. Charot!

PHOTOBLOG!

Ang tanging request ko sa tatay ko ay please please gumala kami sa Downtown LA. As you guys know, I’m a HUGE FAN of Joseph Gordon-Levitt (I can’t emphasize that enough) and I first fell in love with him in (500) Days Of Summer. That movie is like my hollywood One More Chance. (500) Days of Summer presented Downtown LA in a beautiful light so I just had to see the city for myself.

Happenings: Go tayo sa Fort Santiago!

First of all, I’m sorry for the pa-witty title but I love it so I take my sorry back. Lol. Second, I missed blogging! Sa totoo lang wala naman akong masyadong ganap. WHAT. I know, I know. Summer is about to end and I haven’t even set foot on sand. Kahit anong klaseng buhangin waley. Pero keri!

I’ve been having the urge to travel since the year started. I actually promised myself that I will go out more and explore the wonderful places here in the Philippines. So far, sa Fort Santiago pa lang ako napapadpad. Ang layo diba! The actual plan was my best-est friends and I will go to Vigan. Then due to fund issues, we resorted to Corregidor. Alam nyo na ang ending — sa Intramuros.
