The funniest wedding ever!!

Yesterday - I attended my friend Vic's wedding. It was raining so hard - if you're Chinese it means one thing - It's a LUCKY day. And I think it was - because during the ceremony - people were laughing out loud! And it was echoing all through-out the church! Even if it was supposed to be a serious ceremony - the groom has somehow managed to make everyone laugh - not once, not twice, but many times over!! You see - this friend of mine is really really funny. He has this sense of humor that can make anyone laugh - no joke! He's infectious! Of all the weddings I've attended in my whole life - I think that this is the only wedding that made me laugh the most! The priest who presided - Fr. Johnny Go, SJ - also made sure that there was a little humor in his homily. I actually listened as he told everyone how the bride and groom met. What was odd (and nice) was that he made the bride and groom face the attendees while they were saying their vows. It think that

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Happy Birtday Liza !!! She's the sister of my Panget.. Happy Happy Birthday! :) Enjoy your party!! :) Mwah!!

Seeing green..

Green Tea is the feature drink at Starbucks as of the moment. I tried their Green Tea Latte last weekend and I loved it! Yesterday afternoon - I sort of craved for it (there's this taste in mymouth that reminded me so of that green tea latte drink) So after yoga class, I immediately went to get myself an extra hot Green Tea Latte. I can't explain it - but I soooooooo love the taste! It's so soothing, plus it's so fragrant. My Panget however, doesn't agree with me on this.. Tsk.. Tsk.. Last night, I got a text from Tammy Tan - she told me that my dress will be ready this afternoon! Yipee! You see - my dress is in Emerald - yes, emerald! I was sort of leaning towards browns and plums - but somehow, when I met Tammy - I was wearing a green top and she liked the color on me - and so we decided on a green color - emerald to be more specific. She also asked me if she could borrow the dress after the wedding. She said she'll use it for a shoot in an upcomin

I hate this feeling...

Last night - after taking my Bikram Yoga class - I ate 1 piece of Banana for dinner - thinking that since it's a fruit - what harm can it do to me? This morning - I was in a very delightful mood. At the moment - I'm feeling stressed, irritated and bloated. So, this is how it feels like to be constipated. Damn. I hate that banana! Damn.

a Beauty-filled day..

It actually was... :) I went to meet Tammy Tan to fit the dress I had made for S 's wedding - after which - I went to attend Sophie's Beauty and Minerals day! Beauty & Vanity - they go hand in hand I think... :) I was actually late for the 2 events. But first things first. The dress I had made turned out so nice! I loved it! There were only minor adjustments and everything else was close to perfect! One complaint though - it seemed as if my front bumpers shrinked! Dang it! But Tammy made suggestions, thanks Tammy !! :) She also had me try on this wrap dress - I first thought that it might not fit me because of the size, but when I wore it! My gosh - it was perfect! I loved it sooooooo much! Even my Panget said it looked great! Thanks Tammy !! I'm such a big fan of hers! She's such a sweetheart!! Arns, if you happen to see this - you're one lucky guy!! My friend Annie was also there, not to mention my Panget. You see, he's the ever curious -

You Make Me Smile....

First of all - THANK YOU so much Mindy! It's such an honor - that I am a part of your list. It really means a LOT to me. Thank you, thank you!! You actually made my day.. :) I am deeply overwhelmed! I swear - I am still in shock whenever I think about it. Paying it forward - here's my own list... Sophie - I've never met Sophie - but I feel like I know her. We chat once in a while, long chats not small talk- and it turns out, we have some friends in common! I like chatting with her - it's like chatting with a younger sister - and I never had a sister.. The fact that mans more than 1 blog says it all! She's indeed a blog addict. She's the one who got me hooked on Mineral Make-Up! Gosh - when I got my sampler from her - I never went back to my old brands! Thanks Soph!! Mindy - not because she put me in her list - but because of her love of watching TV!! I too am a TV addict, but Mindy - I think no one can parallel her! I admire her objectiveness

Facebook & Friends

Everyone loves the series FRIENDS. I've seen it so many times over and I think that I can somehow answer a trivia or two about the show. My good friend MM was the one who invited me to Facebook - the new Friendster. And since then - I couldn't stop going to the site every single day! It has a lot of features and quite frankly - I've become addicted to it - mainly because of the FRIENDS trivia quiz. I've spent hours on this answering trivias - to reach the next levels! Here's one of the questions. I think if you're a fan of FRIENDS - you'll know the answer to this.. Any guesses?


It's officially the season of Weddings. Last Saturday, at S 's bridal shower - S handed me my official invite to her wedding. I don't know why - but when I got home - I stared at it for about 10 minutes - I looked at it over and over again. I couldn't believe she's already getting married! It seems like only yesterday that she was telling us how her then boyfriend A - proposed to her. I was so happy to hear the news. Actually, I wasn't surpirsed - you see, I dreamt that she told me she was already getting married. She assumed that my Panget (who's her cousin) told me about her fiance's plans - but honestly - I found out in my dream - I only confirmed it was true when she told me. (There's a saying that if you dream of something and you want it to come true - you shant tell anyone - I'm a bit superstitious you see...) In less than a month she will become Mrs. A.K.L . We were just sending one another text messages after my Yoga class a

No eyes!

My Panget is soooooo funny. You see - he declares himself blind when he doesn't have his glasses on. Considering that his glasses have a grade that is less than 100. Oh-kay!! He suddenly messaged me thru YM that he was going to pick me up earlier than usual - the reason? He left his glasses at home - thus - he needed to leave the office while there's still light! Hahaha.. Isn't that cute? Awwwww....

Goodbye Auntie Amy!

The weekend was quite sad. My Ima - the youngest sister of my Guama (my mom's mother) was cremated last Saturday - she succommed to Breast Cancer last Thursday. Funerals are really sad, but one good about funerals is that - it brings the family together. It has been ages since I last saw my aunts, uncles, grandparents (the siblings of my Guama)! The last time I saw my aunts and uncles (cousins of my mom) - most of them were not married yet - and now - they have kids! Not babies - but kids ranging from 10 years old and below. One of my second cousins asked their mom 'Why are there Koreans here?' I knew they were referring to me! Obviously! Hahaha.. And their parents told them 'She's your cousin!' He looked at me confused and looked at his dad again - as if he knew it was a joke. But it wasn't. Haha!! He was a little shocked to hear me speak english! I knew that I had mestiza and mestizo aunts and uncles - but when you see their kids - gosh - th


I think I might want to bake this weekend. I don't know why - but there's that certain tug that makes me want to bake something.. cupcakes or cookies maybe... I'm not so sure.. Hahaha... This begets skipping sweets for 3 days!! (I know! 3 measely days!!)

What country are you?

Got this from Christine - I hope you don't mind.. You're Cambodia! Life's been really rough, but it's slowly improving. You know way too much about the skeletal structure of humans, mostly from being forced to study it. This has given you a fear of many things, most especially the color red. The future has to be more promising though, and your greatest adversary can now never come back to hurt you any more. Take the Country Quiz at the Blue Pyramid

The Coffee Bean - so SLOOOOOOOOOOWW!!

First, let me say that I absolutely love Chai Teas , and in Manila - there's only one place that I go to for Chai Teas and that is - The Coffee Bean . Why? Well because they use Chai Tea leaves and not those powder mixes. But one thing that discourages me in going to The Coffee Bean is it's slow, slooooooow service! It takes them forever to make a cup of tea or coffee. I mean comparing them to the other coffee houses - I think they're the slowest! It seems like whenever there's an order - all hell breaks lose! The Baristas are everywhere - sometimes even bumping into one another! I don't understand why they're so unorganized! Last Saturday night - after watching 'The Invasion' in Eastwood - I was craving for a Chai Latte. Thus - I decided to order one - my Panget who's not a fan of CBTL opted to stay outside - in one of the tables - and wait for me. He said he needed to sit down - because for sure it'll take the baristas longer than us
