52 Moments: Count me In!

Image
Daydreaming made me to browse my favorite blogs. I always feel inspired after reading them. Maybe I can share to you the blogs that I have recently discovered so that you'll also experience the same high that lingers in my spirit. 
My thoughts brought me to my life list, my bucket list since January is about to end already. I wanted to know if I've done something good to the world, or to the people around me at least, or to myself that my good mood can enable me to do good things to other people. Sorry, but the latter is a selfish way of defending a good cause. 
My life listisn't just enough. I need something (aside from the Bible, Living Water 2012 [daily gospel], Everyday Happy book that are always on my bed) that can make me a better person. Then, I think He answered my prayer. Found this on Aileen's blog.

Every week, the founders have set a goal that anybody can take on. This would evoke emotions out of the participant. Make him realize things. Set him in the right…

Going Back to the Classics

Dreams, dreams always dreams with you, never common sense.

I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine. Do you have the slightest idea about these photos and lines? My lips wouldn't betray. It's up to you to figure these out. For now.

I am immersing myself in two of life's beautiful masterpieces about the overrated subject, love. After all, February is just around the corner. ♥

Cheap Thrills Come Easy

Image
Simple things that make my heart leap and my day brighter:
★ Hearing an old song sang in an entirely different way. Take this for instance.





You didn't click on it? You should! Definitely. Right now. 


★ Singing in front of several people though it's not your thing
★ Gaining a new perspective on things
★ Knowing somebody will always just be there no matter what
★ Saying no without ending up doing the yes-things
★ Watching TV Shows {The New Girl, Gossip Girl, The Secret Circle, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries} in my bedroom with the lights off
★ Riding the jeepney with your newly purchased books
★ Finally feeling the desire to work
★ Night jogging while listening to Yuck's Shook Down
★ Taking chances ♥
★ Singing happy songs on YouTube together
★ Being happy that you'd like to do everyone around you good things
★ ME time
★ Keeping calm and choosing happiness instead
★ His words ♥
My child, if you become wise, I will be very happy. I will be proud when I hear you speaking words of …

Yadu: Own a Bag That is Styled Just for You

Image
My popularist blogger friend and work mate ignited the Yagu Bag craze on me and on our other work mates. He discovered this bag sanctuary when he and his bro were nibbling on some pizza somewhere in Makati. Told me most of the designs was so me. Images of my pretty, irritating face would pop up daw everytime he picks up a wallet and gaze up on the hanged bags.

He just can't stop fussing over how cute the bags are and how rewarding the shopping experience is since each creation is unique. Yes, each one was specially made for their rightful owner, the one destined to be the sole owner of a carefully woven, recycled piece of treasure.

Brace yourself for total cuteness!


This is the store front. I love the homey feel of the store -- the scratched wooden doors. It's just like visiting your cheery aunt, knowing you'll spend the afternoon talking about cross stitch and baking cookies over banana pancakes and coffee. 

Probably by now you already know that I am a sucker for details…

My Day this Saturday

Image
Awkwardness went dancing in the air as I was descending our apartment staircase about an hour ago. I caught my first glimpse of my housemate who was watching a movie on his laptop on our living room.

Uhhh. We talked earlier on tweeter. (Yes, thanks to technology, we don't have to see face to face though we're under one roof.)


Then, he said

Uh - oh. Then, I said
And, I added.

Lol. I just need the ME time. Sorry, maybe we can watch the Chipmunks or Underworld next week or on Monday. Whichever flick I didn't watch.
I want to be alone. I swear I can be forever alone. Haha. Because because... Errr, I don't know. I mean, I was totally okay before that d*** phone call. I can smile. I am not expecting anything from him. Text. Call, anything. I am skipping happily alone in my life. 
Then, he told me to take him back. 
He told me words that I love/yearn/need to hear with his perfect, now almost Canadian slang. 
*world stopping, rose petals raining on me, lips slowly forming a s…

Striped Straws and Happiness

Image
Home, I missed you. I've been sleeping in the wee hours of the morning since Monday. Bad. Now, I had to get home by commuting, no matter what it takes. I have to blog. =D

Anyway, I had a judging stint earlier. It was nothing serious, kinda informal, but I did enjoy it. A different department was having their Wellness Program and they wanted me to judge the cheering yadda and the Miss Fitness. Lasted for like twenty minutes only, but it was kinda fun.

Told ya, I'm taking Chuck Bass's Rule to Happiness: Just Say Yes. I'm up for anything this year. :) Let's drink to that.


And, I have something to tell you. I'm kinda infatuated with my work again. You know, the new department. Well, it's a refreshing start of the year. New department. New teammates. New project. New challenges. New cube. New cubemates. Yes, everything's new, except for my laptop. *sob

I am just kind of inspired/worried/pressured/excited/scared with my new work because of the things they sa…

Feeling Good? Be Viral.

Image
It's 1:12 AM in my side of the world and I'm feeling the same, comforting, all familiar, wonderful feeling. :) 

Hope it'll last. Hope it'll keep getting better. :)
I'll pass on the beautiful and inspiring feeling to you, hopefully. Just paying it forward. ;)

Walgreens after Express Scripts took off

Image
This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine. As of January 1st, 2012 Walgreens is no longer connected to Express Scripts. All Walgreens pharmacies nationwide, including the Duane Reade Pharmacies in New York are the ones affected by the change.  As a result, the patients and their families who are covered by the Express Scripts plan are now hassled. They no longer have access to the 24-hour service and drive-thru pharmacies provided by Walgreens. They have to drive somewhere else. This certainly does not make the customers happy. To know more about this dispute, please visit Walgreens and Express Scripts press release. To make things more tolerable, Walgreens is currently offering their Prescription Savings Club members a huge discount. This family membership includes everyone in the family (the spouse, dependents who are 22 years old and younger, and even pets). This would only cost $10 annually. If there are extended family members, then they have to pay $5 to…

Café Well: Socialize Your Way to Healthy Living

Image
This post brought to you by Cafe Well. All opinions are 100% mine. I don't understand why I have gained additional weight. Do muscles weigh heavier than fats? I want to believe that I have developed muscles instead of having accumulated additional fats. No, I wouldn't want to post this on my facebook page. I wouldn't want to appear as an insecure, superficial and vain being, do I? But, I guess it would be better if I can rant on health stuff like these to people who could actually listen and care. Then, I found out all about Café Well. Just what I need.What is Café Well?Cafe Well is a social network like Facebook that enables health-conscious people to interact. Since health information are private matters to most people, you can participate in this social network anonymously. It's safe and secure. You can find support for your chronic conditions, give diet styles and you can exchange lifestyle tips. For instance, they have this program called Race to the Moon.What is…

It's more fun in the Philippines

Image
The craze of the Department of Tourism's (DOT) slogan, "It's more fun in the Philippines" started last week. Trended of twitter. Bloggers participated. What did I do? Downloaded the Harabara Bold font and let it sleep in my font folder.

I was lazy. And, I got jealous. So, this. My very own contribution to my country's ever growing tourism. :)

This was taken during one of our scholarships (OWWA) summer trips. We always had one. Yes, we were lucky! :)
We conquered Mt. Pinatubo last May 21, 2011, the supposedly end-of-the-world date. Yeah, we wanted to do something memorable during that day. I haven't blogged about it because I was too lazy, but I made this instead. 
During our college fieldtrip in Baguio! My college barkada. Love/d this shot as much as I loved the sweet corn. :) Still in Baguio. With my closest college friends. I sort of pretended to pick an orange from the strawberry plantation, while my friend, N (the one who's raping the plant), was wel…

LED Lights and the Overrated Love

Image
One reason why I love blogging is because I can immerse myself into my fandoms and experience temporary bliss and extraordinary high. Yay! Fandom blabbing will start in 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.

My body has an excess of oxytoxins, the love hormone. Scratch a guy from the scene. I have to acknowledge music, my girly fandoms and other couples for this one. If you want to know how to stay in love even if you are single, then just e-mail me. We have a lot of talking to do. I am contagious. :)
LED lights! My obsession with LED lights, aside from having the light sources as an integral part of our thesis (we designed a solar LED street lamp), has heightened since I got hooked into tumblr. There are just plenty of cute, romantic, relaxing pictures of LED or christmas lights that are placed everywhere.

On Trees
On Made up Tents

On bicycles

On headboards
And apparently, even on couples #lolthisissocutethatiwanttohavemyownversion  Here's my own version of the lights-near-bed mania.

There's Nothing Wrong with the Kiss

Image
Just finished watching Damon and Elena kissing. I think there's nothing wrong with Damon kissing Elena. I mean, Stefan is being a jerk and being compelled is not an excuse. I always believed love is way bigger than any other obstacle there is.

I am a hopeless romantic. I am still.


Now, this song is stuck in my head. It's on repeat mode. This is played while Elena is jogging around the neighborhood. I heard the first few notes and I knew that it was instant love. <3 Tomorrow, Ima jog. Run and let the air brush away the thoughts that have been clouding in my mind. I now love Yuck's Shook Down. Totally.


Shook Down by Yuck

To collapse in a sugar cane
Suck it sweet to kill the pain There was someoene i was looking for There is no more My tongue is weak from a kick or two The word is dry, I think of you Tie my face to the back of a jet  To keep my essence there


And its been a week And its been a week too long There are several things that i've been doing wrong You see the tim…
