Finally posting photos from my grad ball!
I wore a dress by Jerome Salaya Ang, Philippine Fashion Week designer. I really didn’t know what style I want so I just let him have free reign on it. I just wanted it to be in the color gold. haha! In choosing my designer, I played a flashback in my head of all of my favorite shows from the past couple of seasons. Jerome’s shows always stood out to me, especially his Holiday 2011 with those prosthetics on the models. Ang cool lang! haha!
Here are the details of my dress: it has a plunging sweetheart cut in the front but it still has a mesh to make it more school appropriate.When Jerome was sketching it in front of me, I thought he was gonna make me too sexy and I won’t be able to enter the ballroom anymore. lol I thought it was just beads that were going to be around it but on my second fitting, I was surprised they were swarovski-like stones. And yes, they are heavy - like i had two extra pounds on my chest! When my friends saw me, I was literally sparkling and they joked that they could put me in a pawnshop already. hahaha!
Photos from the ball:
It’s my best friend and her so-asian-could-pass-off-as-a-kpop-superstar boyfriend Stephen. Sigh this is why women have boyfriends, right? They’re your universal dates? hehe
And well, I went stag that night. No date…. :( haha I have valid reasons. Since I was part of the committee, I thought I was gonna be a bit busy helping run the program so I decided not to bring le boy anymore and I didn’t wanna make him feel OP and leave him behind. I wasn’t busy after all and I missed him that night. But I have no regrets ‘cause I was in the good company of my friends and I had fun anyway.
My brotha Lance!
They love my kulambo. chos!
The unholy Trinity! <3
The four of us reunited. :)
Slits were so in during that night. Anne Curtis lang ang peg!
My best friend and I are off to college…together!!! Animo!! <3
My tropa every dismissal. The “Awesomest People You Will Ever Meet” :)
Really had fun with my batchmates. See you around, guys! :)
So today’s my 17th birthday. Another year older… hahaha! The first two photos above were taken by my dad probably when I was 3 years old. As I turn a year older, I’m grateful the Lord has blessed me with another year in this planet. A year older, another chapter of my life, more things to be grateful for. I can’t say I am contented with my life. I will always strive for more - experience and learning-wise. Happy Birthday to meeeeee :)
My babe Isabel and I finally had a shoot after sdjkgtujngvileeerjg years. Ahhhh yesss! I missed this girl! We’ve been so busy with school all year round and now that we’re college bound, we finally have time! Just a quick post before I leave the house for my enrollment in DLSU. Here’s a teaser of our shoot. Watch out for more! :)
Ladies, Gentlemen, Gays, Earthlings and everyone in between, I am finally a high school graduate!
Aaaahhh been dreaming of this day and worked hard for that diploma . Felt like a long time coming yet, in that span of 4 years, I also felt it went by quickly. I know, I know, what a cliche thing to say. Well it really feels like that! Sayings like “You’ll never realize something’s value until it’s gone.” and “For every ending comes a new beginning.” are playing in my head. I’m getting all sentimental. haha High school is, was and will always be one of the best times of my life. This books has so much chapters filed with stories of emotions, ups, downs and everything in between. Posting “some” of the photos from the last 4 years would take me….well yeah so let me share with you guys photos from my graduation! :)
My sister and I waiting for the parentals to finish prepping up. Why do they take so long to get ready…
With Angeline, Lovely, Yumiko (bring me home some legit fresh japanese sushi please! haha) and Jenell. ( @angelineimiren , @lovelyapril19 )
My dad and mom. They’re really younger than you think. Every time I bring my dad to school, they’d think he was a celebrity haha. Love you both.
Getting ready for the processional. Love this shot by my mom!
Will definitely miss Sir Jacy. Love you sir. ( @iamjacyyumul )
Michol, Vahlery. Vahl, ang ganda mo lang! ( @primaVAHLERYna , @micoww )
My bitch Ysabella hihi Babe, you helped me get through high school and every shit that came our way. Therefore, I love you and we’ll be friends forever! ( @ysabellaacosta )
The best thesis partner anyone could ever have, Daehl!
Cutie Sam ( @awesaaaam )
With some of the people that were part of my journey!
I’m the cool kid who wore heels to graduation instead of school shoes. hehe
Leia, Genevieve, Sam, Darlene ( @leiafabulous , @happinessisgene , @samischaotic , @drlngonzaga )
My best friend and I are off to college…together!! huhu <3
A panoramic view of Batch 2013. <3
I changed into a blue dress after grad for my celebration.
The folks at Sambokojin and Saisaki gave me a banana split with gummy bears as a grad treat! Awww sooo sweet!
Can’t wait for this girl to graduate too!
Finally a high school graduate!
I am now college bound! Good luck and God bless us, Batch 2013! :)
I think when it’s all over, it just comes back in flashes, you know? It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories. It just all comes back. But he never does. I think a part of me knew the second I saw him this would happen. It’s not really anything he said or did, it was the feeling that came along with it.
And the crazy thing is I don’t know if ever I’m gonna feel that way again. But I don’t know if I should.
I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright. But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you? Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him. It was losing me.
A sneak peek on the wildlife.
Revived again! Hello, hello! Happy New Year to you guys! I know it’s a wee bit late but I do hope you had a wonderful celebration with your families. After all, it’s the season we all come together and give lots of love! :)
It’s a new year. Time for new beginnings and as usual, new year’s resolutions. Admittedly, we all make these every year and hope for the very best we get to fulfill all, if not most. Blame it on the new year’s resolutions curse! lol We really don’t get to fulfill them but with every year that pass, we all realize how much we’ve grown, changed and improved throughout.
Click on the photo to link you where I got it.
Every year, ever since I can remember, my resolutions have been the same. Some are new but they’re always the same: save more money (lol), study more and harder, blog more, take more risks in dressing up and don’t slack off anymore. I’m embarrassed to admit this but I am really lazy. I mean, look, I don’t even get to update this blog of mine regularly. :( Y’all know why, and I guess it’s inevitable since school works can really pile up - especially I’m on my last year. I’ve been busy with thesis, investigatory project (ugh, I’ve been making one since 5th grade and I am so sick of it. loathe!! lol) going out with friends, going to parties/gatherings, applying to colleges and everything in between. Well my blogging babe Isabel and I made a promise to take this more seriously. We’re off to college soon and we hope to post more! :D
Back to new year’s. During this time, I get a little sentimental for awhile. I look back on my best and worst moments of the year and ask myself what’re the things I’ve done to help others and what have I improved on. We all have those rough patches we need to work on and we get bumps along the road, right?
Whether we like it or not, I believe that who we are today is a direct product of yesterday. We can’t undo what’s been done, and we can’t hit a button and start from scratch.
But the truth is, it doesn’t matter. Life is supposed to be imperfect - painful, ugly, beautiful, sweet. It’s a marvelous mess. Where light comes after darkness ad each victory is made sweeter by a taste of defeat.
2012, you have been awesome. Indeed. We always wish for a better year than the previous and 2012 was no exception for me. I had a lot of firsts, did stuff I never thought I could and would do, I went to my highest and experienced my lowest - but the lowest I went through can never measure up to what other people went or what they are going through. Remember, there will always be others who are experiencing worse than we do.
This year, I’m looking forward with acceptance. Being flawed doesn’t mean that we’re broken - it means that we’re human; masters and caretakers of this place we call earth.
I’m looking forward with perspective. Learn from my faults; every right and every wrong is a step in this journey, and each step offers a new vantage point from which to see the future.
I’m looking forward with foresight. Gaze beyond the horizon. Realize that there is always something more than what is in front of me. Never be pleased with the way things are; always hope for the way things can be - higher, finer, better, bolder.
Lastly, I’m looking forward with strength. I’ll get hurt, but I’ll explore and take the roads less traveled. I’ll get discouraged, but I’ll wander and take the routes others have called impossible. Everything is conceivable until somebody dares to dream.
Above are collages of tid bits of my year. It was hard to choose so I just chose randomly. hihi All the places I went to, people I met, new friends, old friends that went, experiences, things I learned, I’ll surely never forget them. They made my 2012 quite memorable. This year, of all, I learned to love someone. *coughs. lol* He came unexpectedly and I realized, to not look for love. In a sense that, we should never be desperate about it but…that special someone will just come right knocking on your door. Loving someone takes a great ordeal - it made me vulnerable and emotional but those feelings are all for loving someone. All ‘cause of love. :)
I’d like to apologize for my shortcomings and everyone I have done wrong. I’m not perfect and so are you. :) To everyone who has doubted, hated, despised, liked, loved me, THANK YOU. You made me stronger and proved me of something better. :)
I wish nothing more than a great year ahead of you - filled with blessings, love, happiness and everything in between. Bring it all on, 2013!
Blog post for ate Cheys! :)
We all want to be somebody, right? We all dream, or have dreamed, of doing something to make us known.
Saying I have big dreams and goals would be an understatement ‘cause I believe that each one of us has our own ideals and aspirations. :) I dream of working in the fashion industry and I’m slowly making my way there. With hard work, patience and a lot of creativity, I can conquer anything I set my mind to.
I think that being a legend is about doing something good and unforgettable that it made you into someone influential and, as to what they call it, legendary.
Not everyone can be a legend, but all of us can inspire lives and touch the hearts of others. I don’t wanna leave this world without putting my “thumb-print” on it and not making a single person smile today. :)
Well hello, hello! It’s my semestrial break and I suddenly remembered to put my blog back to life! Anyhoo, I have Instagram guys!! Haha! I never thought I’d have an IG account but I’m sooo addicted to it. I now have a habit of taking photos of my food, and the food of others I’m with, before I eat it and I kinda feel bad ‘cause it makes me look like a weirdo when in restos. I mean, not everyone is so vain with their food, right? Oh well.
So, here are some of the photos I have posted on Instagram over the past 2 months since I created my account. It’s my photo diary of where I am and who I’m with, where I went to and who I was with, current obsessions, new stuff, food, my nails and some nail art (i love nail polishes!!), my vanity (hey, it’s my account right so you’ll definitely see my face there all the time! haha!) and anything that catches my eye! :)
Vain me. Hahahaha! I’m not really a vain person but just when I feel like it and when boredom struck me. That 5th silly photo of me holding a camera, I was actually impersonating someone on her jeje poses and then Akiko captured my moment. I lol’d when I saw this and le Boy laughed so much too, it was the first time I saw him laugh that hard! Thank God he still loves way beyond that embarrassing photo. Hahahahahaha!
Foooooood! Posting this makes me crave.
Random stuff I got (Fifty Shades of Grey’s a gift from le Boy!!! hihi) plus an old sketch of mine.
Tid bits from this season’s Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer ‘13 - shows I watched with my fab fashion buddy Akiko and her cousin Jeallie, outfits for that day and pigging out at BF right after!
1st photo: with Nico from Remodel (our new fashion buddy!) who was my seatmate at the Penshoppe fashion show. We were hoping One Direction was there! 2nd photo: with THE Gabby Alipe of Urbandub! I only listen to a few OPM bands and Urbandub is one of them. Le Boy took me to his school’s Load’em Up, foundation day variety show at night, which also was headlined by other bands such as Franco (!!), Tanya Markova, Imago and right before their set, I spotted Gabby and asked him for a photo. #fangirlmode When Tanya performed, they greeted me but I was too shy to raise my hand. They’re a family friend, that’s why. They thought I wasn’t in there. haha! 3rd photo: with THE Francis Reyes of the Dawn. My dad and I love this band! I went to my batchmate’s band’s gig and he was a guest.
With some of the people I love. My classmates and I worked so hard for our Sayaw Pagkalinangan that we even went to school on a Sunday just to finish everything in tip-top perfection! We came second but the literal blood, sweat, pain and tears we shed was all worth it. :)
Some of my nail posts. My UK-flag design’s a bit fail though. It looked like a flower. Haha!
Blast from the past! My 1st and 2nd grade ID cards and me with Hermione! When my friends saw this, they were like, "Ang cuuuuute mo noon! Sana di ka nalang lumaki!" Harhar. :p
My college test permits plus my application to DLS-CSB. Applying to colleges, e.g. getting those forms, having them filled out ad signed by the admin, and passing them, is really tiring. They make my arse go around like crazy!! But it’s always an adventure going around cities with friends. :D
…aaaand yeah. hihi He doesn’t like taking photos of him or taking photos in general, but he’s a good sport ‘cause he loves me. -_- Chos!!! haha!
There you go! Come follow me on Instagram! :)
Me right after taking the University of the Philippines College Admissions Test (UPCAT.) Soooo nakakasabaw
Haha! Sorry for the term but no other could perfectly describe how I felt after taking the UPCAT. I never knew it would be that draining, stressful and just…epic. I knew beforehand there will be thousands of us but I never thought the whole country would be there! That’s what it felt like! haha!
So I got the morning schedule (see here), just like what I wanted - thank God!! Decided to wake up at 3AM because I was expecting heavy traffic but I woke up at exactly 4AM, got dressed in 20 minutes (i still can’t believe it!) and off we went. I got to Katipunan, there was still no traffic but by the time we got inside UP, cars were EVERYWHERE!! Students from various parts of Luzon got there as early as 2AM just so they can make it on time. It was a good thing our car could still navigate it’s way to my assigned building despite the other cars roaming around too.
I was told my building didn’t have air-conditioning so I just brought a jacket since it was raining but the testing rooms did - thank God because I didn’t want to sweat and it was freezing cold!! So while lining up before we got inside the testing room, which was the auditorium, this guy behind me was creeping me out. I heard him mumbling stuff to himself. Formulas, perhaps? Oh I don’t know. It’s just creepy. We’re now seated and it took awhile before our proctor talked and gave us instructions. I flipped it open and saw Mario Maurer with braces! UPCAT takers, I’m sure y’all know who Hans Tristan Anderson Yu Sykola is. Hahahaha! Language Proficiency was the first test and I was like, “PIECE OF CAKE.” English is my forte - hence me taking up Communication Arts in college - and I’m pretty sure I can ace that area of the UPCAT. Then came in the Science and Math area, I told myself, "Hay nako, UPCAT for experience nalang!" I didn’t get to finish them! I had few questions left to answer but I ran out of time! We were told not to go back. :(
All in all, it was a really great experience. Chaotic but iba talaga ang UP. I think it’s quite impossible for me to pass but who know, right? Passing the UPCAT is already a huge honor and you know what, it’s not bad to see my name plastered in that big-ass tarpaulin “UPCAT PASSERS OF 2013” outside my school. ;)
*Guys, I apologize ‘cause this was meant to be posted just right after my UPCAT last Aug. 4. 2 whole months ago. I wanted it to be posted on a Monday but I just got busy. And at this very moment, I already took the tests from the Big 4 (just had my DLSUCET a while ago!). I really feel bad. Will blog about the rest next time! Till then.
…testing..1, 2, 3…
Well hi!! You miss me? Probably not. Haha! Gahhhdd I miss this blog. I miss blogging! I miss pouring my thoughts in and blog about my adventures.
(Here’s a recent photo of me btw. Just to ensure i’m still alive and for the sake of putting a photo here in my blog.)
So, why have I been M.I.A here? (I’m active on Twitter though. Follow me!! :) As usual, ‘cause of school. Nothing new here. -_- Well, all for a good reason. I’m a Senior and I’m graduating from high school in a couple of months. I’m about to go to college next year and I have been taking college entrance tests (CET) from top universities. I took the UPCAT, ACET and USTET already (more on that on my next posts) and I’m about to take my DLSUCET next Sunday. Of course, almost everyone takes tests on the big four - UP, Ateneo, La Salle and UST - and aims for all or one of them.
Honestly, I did not review for any of them. Or went to a review center last Summer or even study just for a little. Ang lakas lang ng loob ko, noh? Haha! Well, I took special classes in Geom last Summer that’s why. You see, I didn’t make it last year on my Geom class so I had to make up for it. But I have no regrets on that at all. ;)
Anyway, I have to say, I think I should’ve done even a little review. I’ve been told by my older friends what I review won’t even come up in the test, but I’m sure even just a little would’ve given me a little help. Oh well, I’m done with 3 of them and just relied on my stocked knowledge, confidence and prayer. :)
On being a Senior, it’s stress alright. STRESS!!! So much stuff to do. Projects left and right, homeworks here and there. Extra curriculars have become more extra extra. I’ve been coming home late and tired every single day and sleeping at midnight is becoming a norm. I promise to blog about what I have been up to!! I guess this is what being a Senior is all about. Graduating means pressure and must give my utmost best; after all, I am leaving my alma matter and I have to prove to them that I will not leave without instilling their vision on me to prepare me to the bigger world. I’m getting all cheezy here hahahaha.
I wish I could tell you guys more on what I have been up to and just rant in here but I have a lot of stuff to do. A lot. And I have to finish at least half of them. Siiiigh. I promise to be back!! I have a lot of backlogs and I’m bursting with stories to tell. Till then.
Happy Birthday to my forever fab fashion buddy, my best friend, my soul sister, my crazy btch and the nicest girl ever Akiko!!! <3
Akiko and I have known each other since we were
in diapers kids, starting out our modeling careers. We were so cute back then!! Now we’re so fab! lol. Through the years, we’ve seen each other grow, met the most creative and respected people in the industry together and we’re growing up to be the young ladies we should be. :) I can’t be more grateful enough for having a sistah like her! <3
Aren’t we so adorable in that second photo? That was on my 7th birthday - a Barbie-themed party!
Happy Sweet 16th girl! Here’s to more fab years of friendship and chasing our dreams in sky-high heels! Love yah! Cheers!! <3
