We’re not a team. We’re a time-bomb!

I just got home from a movie date with my boyfriend!  I hope you’re all prepared for a bombard of The Avengers-related posts!!! So if you haven’t watched the movie, don’t worry. This post has no spoilers, I promise you!

So my boyfriend and I agreed on a “race” wherein the last one to arrive at the cinemas would get to treat the other ice cream. Cito, being the lazy asswipe he is, was the loser of our little game! Ha! In your face! 😛 ❤

So while waiting, I decided to treat myself to some Okinawa Basic Milk Tea from Infinitea. Since they don’t have egg pudding, I opted for no add-ons. Ugh, I hate pearls. Notice my shirt. *wink wink* (See post here)

When he arrived, we bought our tickets for the next show time! I called the cinemas beforehand and asked if a lot of people are going to be watching. Thankfully, the clerk told me that only a few were there. So we were lucky to get really decent seats!

First off, I apologize for the lousy shot. We were already in the cinemas when I forgot that we hadn’t taken any food shots! *face palm* This family-sized nacho salad is from our favorite movie-snack restaurant, Southern Flavors. Their quesadillas ARE TO DIE FOR. Trust me on this one!! ❤

After the movie, I felt fat after eating those nachos (and some of his french fries) so we opted for something healthy for dessert! Californiaberry nonfat frozen yogurt was definitely the way to go. Crushed grahams and fruit all the way!

Non-relevant: We saw this amazing book at Powerbooks while strolling around the mall! It’s the classic story of Pride and Prejudice – zombified! Being a total dork, I am definitely buying this the next time we hit the mall. Hilarious! 😀

I asked him to buy me cotton candy instead of ice cream. I adore the Barbie sticker! ❤

I am sooooo glad I have a wonderful boyfriend to share life’s sweet blessings with! He instantly turned gay the moment the movie started!! ❤

We live for the nights we’ll never forget with the friends we’ll always remember.

Last April 9, my senior high classmate, Shanille, celebrated her 18th birthday! All of our classmates were invited (though less than half came) and I knew that it’s going to be fun seeing them again after two years. The last I saw them was graduation! 😀

Sooo happy I got to see my girls again! 🙂

I miss pigging out on food and not be conscious about my body! Yummy food keeps screwing up my diet! 😦

Laughs all around! I remember my senior year in which every single one of us has a unique and hilarious laugh! One laugh would trigger another laugh, which would then trigger every other’s laughs all throughout the classroom! My tummy would always ache during one of our laugh fests! Yes, we were carefree and happy kids back then!

Boyfie ❤ Yes, we were classmates during high school!

Cito’s one of Shanille’s 18 roses! 🙂

A birthday is not complete without icing fights! Oh the joys of childhood!

With the birthday girl! Forgive me for being haggard-looking! This photo was taken at around 11 PM, and just minutes before going home. It was a crazy night!

Happy birthday beautiful! ❤

Ciao!

Here’s to the nights that turned into mornings, and friends that turned into family.

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you’re down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.

You’re our forever friend, Swanget! Happy birthday baby!

Inna and I made this chocolate tower for her!
Ingredients:
2 chocolate cakes
1 box of Cream-O Deluxe
1 bag of Nips
1 box of her favorite chocolates, Macadamia!

We decided to celebrate her birthday 4 days early (April 16th) since she’s in HongKong for her actual birthday (April 20th)! We went to her house at about 11 PM and boy, was she surprised!

Forever friendship! ❤

Sisters at heart!! ❤

Our baby flew out of her nest

Late post! 😦

Last March 31, our youngest best friend already graduated from high school! She’s about to begin her new journey: college! Gold was being depressed because she didn’t receive any award. We all know that she works her ass off at her schoolwork (she’s ultra smart) and her dance club (she’s ultra talented) but I guess the school didn’t appreciate her efforts. So Inna and I decided to surprise her with gifts that we made ourselves!

We made a trophy commemorating the best award you can ever get in your life – MOST OUTSTANDING BEST FRIEND. 🙂 And we also bought roses, because we remember she mentioned that she never received a bouquet her whole life!

We love you soooo much! ❤

Gave them to her after she received her diploma! Credits to whoever took this picture! Kudos to you!

Soooooo proud!!!!!! ❤

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.

Last April 12, my blockmate suddenly texted me if I’m available so we could all go swimming!! Since I have nothing better to do, and the cool waters are calling my name, I immediately replied, “Yes!!!”. 😉

We went swimming at Bellevue Hotel at Alabang. The place looks magical and sophisticated!

The pool in daylight! It’s just stunning there. The pool is not cold at all! Which would be lousy for me, because I absolutely hate the cold.

Oh-kay! I am definitely having the time of my life. With amazing friends, who wouldn’t?! ❤

Camera-whoring in the bathroom!! The day wouldn’t be complete without shameless mirror pictures! Lol :p

Will you just look at these cutesy hotel toiletries?! I grabbed them to take home with me almost as soon as I laid my eyes on them. Could I just stare at them the whole day? 😦

Of course, swimming is a completely tiring activity. We have to boost our energy with food!! Including these yummy fries, we had lunch at Mcdo right across the hotel, snacks like Mars chocolates and for dinner, we had Pinoy favorites like Tapsilog and Tocilog 🙂

The pool at night! It’s just divine!! I want to gobble it all up and inhale everything! I feel so at peace with Mother Earth. ❤

Happy friends!!! ❤

Ciao lovelies!

P.S. I really, really, really need to diet!!! Any diet tips? 😦

Just the history, the boardwalk, the food, the amusement park.

So I told you all about my birthday celebration with my best friends, now I’m going to tell you all about my celebration with my college friends!

After the stressful (not) final exams, I treated all of them to Enchanted Kingdom (although one member of our barkada can’t go and the other went AWOL). FUN couldn’t even begin to describe our experience! It was my, what sixth?, time to go to E.K. but it never gets old! Especially when you’re with someone you care about. 🙂

From Manila to Laguna, it took us roughly 2-3 hours travel time due to the merciless traffic along Nagtahan. It was a hot and humid day but our excitement’s not waning.. well, sort of. Ha ha! 😀

Bought our 10 tickets! One ticket was wasted because of that one friend that went AWOL 😦

Finally arrived at about a quarter to three! We were 8 in all (9, counting my boyfriend). We have a few rare complete group shots.

For our first ride, we tried the EKstreme! It was this tall tower that’s slowly creeping upwards then suddenly falls to our deaths so fast everything would be a blur. According to myths, if you would drop a peso coin from the top, you would both fall at the same time. Can anyone call Myth Busters please? Ha ha 🙂

Roller Skaters. It’s like a mini roller coaster for kiddies. Kept laughing the whole time because Chella kept screaming! And we encountered hot looking Koreans. 😉

Anchors Away! Chella’s favorite ride, according to her. Lol. Wasn’t able to ride with them because Cito arrived already and I needed to give him his ticket.

Jungle Log Jam! You ride in a log-like boat (no seat belts!), cruise in a river and fall on top of tall slides! And yes, you get very wet if you’re unlucky.

Me and my boyfie eating Mexican food! Burritos and Chimichangas, yes please! Aaahhh

Ever since I can remember, Rialto‘s show HAS ALWAYS BEEN (and I do mean always) Happy Feet’s Mumble’s Wild Ride. It’s a fresh change to see that they are now showing Journey to the Center of the Earth! WITH JOSH HUTCHERSON NO LESS GAAAH ❤ Rialto’s kind of a thrilling 3D movie ride.

One of the rare complete group shots while lining up for Rialto!

 I have no pictures riding the Flying Fiesta, but I love this picture of Carms! Flying Fiesta has always been my favorite ride, but this time, it just made me dizzy. I am not amused. 😐 You sit in this swing-like chair and it spins around higher and higher.

Probably the best, not to mention most fun, ride of all! Rode the Rio Grande Rapids twice in a row!! From the name itself, it’s prime job is to make you wet and not the good kind. The water’s freezing cold, may be dirty, and is just random! You sit in a circle-shaped boat of eight (perfect for us) and you just spin around the rapids and one (or two, or three, or all!) gets to be a victim. Chella’s unlucky to be the one to get hit by the waterfalls.. twice! Poor baby 😦

After changing our clothes, the park is about to close in an hour. So we decided to have dinner. This is me with my first college friend and the only guy in our barkada whom we all love to bully, Dek. 🙂

What I ate:

Bought the guys some pizza because I still have a few money left!

I love love love sushi! Especially Kani Sushi! Give me sushi and I shall give you love. ❤ Yes, I finished all 6 pieces by myself. *insert evil laugh here*

Managed to squeeze in a ride at the Space Shuttle 30 minutes before the park closes! This has got to be my favorite ride in the whole park. It’s the largest roller coaster in the country, with three loops and two free-falling towers. So you get to ride the loops two times: one facing front, and one backwards.

We also managed to charm the workers at Anchors Away (because I didn’t get to ride with them the first time) to “please, please, please” let us ride because it’s my birthday. Yay for kind workers!

So when we got back to Chella’s van, my friends started singing and brought out this huge cake! I swear everyone was looking at us. 🙂 I was a bit teary eyed because I really hadn’t expected it! Thank you Lord for awesome friends!

So yeah, who says you can’t find true friends in college? We’ve been together for almost three years already, and despite fights and issues, we’re still intact. Well, sort of? Lol. I’m not a true friend myself, but hey, I try. 🙂

Since I didn’t get to ride Wheel of Fate, here’s an awesome picture!

Ciao!
