August 31, 2014
In the last leg of August, I performed in the Farmers Plaza, in Cubao. And I’m thankful to finally have the chance to experience performing in Farmers. And my friends were right, it’s enjoying, because all the audiences are really listening and watching the show!! All the sides of the stages, or even on the floors above, there wasn’t really a time that it was vacated. Every time we perform, all those spaces were always crowded and occupied.
I sang 2 songs, 1 solo, which is Set Fire to the Rain. And 1 group song, which is Emotions. In the Set fire to the rain, I didn’t really rehearse this one. The time I performed, was the only time I was able to sing it. Hahaha! And I’m happy, because i didn’t really had serious mistakes. Yay. For the Emotions, we practiced this one ample of times, but this was the one that had troubles… Because my mic was off. As in wtf. It’s like I was singing in there without a mic. And then later on, it did sound, but too soft. That’s why my mom got really irritated. Wew.
In the show, we’re also with Yuki, he’s part of the The Voice of the Philippines. And one thing I discovered about him is that, he knew almost ALL songs!! Every time something plays, he sings with it. So I therefore conclude, if I want to be a professional singer, I have to know all the songs in the Earth. HAHAHAHA lol but he’s nice. So nice :)
After the show, I badly wanted to go home already because I had to go back to my Student Life. But my mom wanted to eat, so of course, who am I to decline right?! So I asked her to go to the food court and eat Jollibee. HAHAHHAHA yes, I was really craving again for Chicken Spaghetti :((( And after I ate, I want to congratulate myself, because I knew in myself, that’ll be the last time I’ll eat Chicken spaghetti, because I have already satisfied my utility. Hohohoho. #EconomicsHits
So we went home by 6pm, and we went to UST church to hear the 7pm mass. And then after that we went home and I started fixing my things. And then, after that, I studied until 12.
I am feeling like a zombie.
PS. I woke up again at 3am and studied until 5. This is insane. 😭 So difficult to be a performer & student at the same time ah! 😒
Marriage not dating (Korean Drama)
Last night I was kind of bored and having difficulty sleeping, so I decided to finish this one. And I was surprised to find out that it was just until Ep16. And I am on the 16th episode. Isn’t it surprisingly sad? (Lol)
What was the story about?
It was about a Plastic Surgeon who was being forced by her mother to get married. But he doesn’t want to. So instead, he got a woman, who’s a troublemaker, to be his girlfriend. But in the end, they fell for each other. But things had been more complicated when it became real already.
Believe it or not, it’s not as cliché as you may think. Overall, it’s predictable. But the events that transits from one event to another is what makes it less cliché.
The comedy is what makes it entertaining; how she always do the troubles (that she was just thinking) into real life and even in front of her in-laws. Or, how they put cute sound effects on the movements of the actor. It’s just so funny that every episode she always does something horrible and embarrassing. That sometimes I wonder, probably if I will do this in real life, I would probably be killed by my mom. Hahaha!
Storywise, it was written accordingly, during the time that they are already feel the “real” feeling, i didn’t make me think that “What! When did he/she fall in love with him/her?!” It was written accordingly, they put emphasis on those scenes wherein they already feel excitement when that someone present, or the annoyance when that someone is absent.
I like Gong Gi Tae’s dad, how he differentiates love and need. And how ambitious he is. And how he pretends that everyone accepted his affair. That jerk. I also liked the fact that they also included all the casts, and not making them just a “supporting” cast.
The story is not also as boring as those dramas that I gave up, they didn’t just let it all revolve into the “love story” that the main leads do. But they also pointed out the root causes of why is the love story like that (because of what they see in their parents), they also pointed out that when guys say “I don’t care.” it also means that he cares a lot but he can’t get it, so he decided to not just care instead, and they also pointed out that sometimes we try to forget some people because they changed and that they are all just part of the past.
PS. You’ll understand this part when you get to watch it. Hahaha!
So yeah, this is not a heavy drama. They didn’t put too much darkness on the story despite that it all talked about d i v o r c e. Hohoho.
Actually, Hotel King was on my “Watch List” too together with this drama, and I was surprised by the awesomeness of Kim Hae Sook. She’s so cool, her pokerface is amusing and her acting is just wow. From the real monster in Cha Jae Wan & Ah Mo Ne, now she was a very compassionate mother-in-law of Joo Jang Mi and a very caring mother of Gong Gi Tae.
Very nice drama.

Smiling is a constant reminder not to stress myself on this mudafaka sheezs I’ll be engaging myself into. Yay goodluck to me!! Off to study world!
Just Constantine staring at me while procrastinating to study 😂 Lol, it’s good to be back to the library. Yay!
The Selection (Series)
It was already almost 7 months since the last time I started this, and 3 months since I finished the series. And I have no regrets on this one, though I must say that this is really my literary taste that’s why I didn’t really had problems with it.
What was the story about?
It was about a girl named, America who was forcefully signed up for “The Selection” that was a contest, within different kinds of social classes, about being “The One” for Prince Maxon. It involved different kinds of lessons on how to be a princess and how to fight for the one you love.
No not about the one you love, but it’s about fighting for who you love. Who you really love. America has been in a emotional turmoil on who she’ll choose. The hardship of the contest and the longing for her family kept her distant with really choosing the prince. But every time the prince would start saying to her that she’s the only one that he’ll choose even if whatever happens, it makes her feel like she can forget about everything and just be with him.
I liked to read this one because I believe that books are fictional, and since it’s fictional, I chose the one that would really give me the most impossible fantasy that ever existed—which is Prince & Princesses. I am so fond of fairytales, I know I know.
But what I hated about these books and what I loved about it at the same time, was the time it took for America to sort her feelings. It’s like one chapter she likes Maxon and she’s sure of it. And then on the next chapter, she likes Aspen again and she can’t forget her. I mean, wtf is wrong with you?! Choose one only!! Choose Maxon because practically speaking HE IS THE PRINCE and HE IS FILTHY RICH and uhhh he is the main character of this story okay! Hahaha. I hated it but I loved it too because I felt how effective the author’s skill is.
[Spoiler alert] Sometimes I even wonder what would have I done if she chose Aspen, or if Maxon died in the war against the rebels or if King Clarkson caught America and Aspen kissing? How terrible would it be and exciting?
PS. I didn’t mean to spoil but I’m making fun of a lot of people reading this, spoiling them with the other way around. Lol
Anna and the French Kiss
I just finished this one yesterday, and I’m so happy with the story! ♥ My friends knew how picky I am with novels, and I even rejected A LOT of books because I find it… uhh… boring. But this one, I don’t know. I just loved it.
What was the story about?
It was actually about a girl named Anna, who was sent away from Atlanta to Paris for her senior year in High School. She didn’t like being sent away, but everything has really reason. And one of her reason was to find her home away from home. Not a house, but a person, St. Clair Etienne.
I have no particular reason why I liked to read this one in the first place. It just happened. Coincidence. And then I fell in love with it. The setting, story, and dialogues are all just worth the time. Probably because I got obsessed with studyblrs and this is about a student life abroad, so they got my attention. Or, probably because I am somewhat familiar with the setting—liking someone who has someone else—that’s why even the dialogues are entertaining for me. Lol, I actually and suddenly thought that I should’ve read this when I was still liking someone and I should’ve said the same words too, to add drama to the shit.
I realized that in one way or another you will just fall in love with someone even if he/she’s a new comer and you won’t fall in love with him/her just because of something that’s vague or shallow, you’ll fall in love with him/her because you knew him/her and you accepted everything that he/she has. Even her past. Also, I realized that, guys will be guys, and girls will be girls, never ever assume even if you have all the possible reason. Just let it slip from their lips.
So, this is not about me okay? Hahaha. If you want something that’s about British guys who are in Paris, read this. If you want something to introduce you to Paris. Or if you just want something to keep you awake before you sleep, read this. It will be worth your time.
August 14, 2014
The saying “Unplanned plans will always be better then the planned plans” proved itself today. Surprisingly, suddenly my Barkada is free and we all wanted a #ChickenJoy. We don’t know why, but we just want it, besides we also knew that the Chicken Joy scarcity is already gone because Jollibee has already new supplier of chickens. And i’m so happy to eat Chicken Spaghetti again!! 😋
But before anything else, we first went to the Org Fair in the Plaza mayor. I signed up & paid for my membership fee in Tomcat & Annyeong Tomasino.
But the most epic part was that, we saw Camille Co!!! Actually we were suppose to leave already, and then suddenly when I glanced on my right, I saw her. And my eyes became so big 👀 And then my friend, Thea & I suddenly looked at each other and said, “O M G SI CAMILLE CO!!!!” And then we were so excited that despite the scorching heat of the sun, we tried to follow her and ask for a picture. But, unfortunately she said that “Later nalang, by 3pm…” And that’s because she has other errands, I think that’s the time that she has to go to SM San Lazaro for the challenge something. I’m not sure. But gosh she’s so pretty and sexy!! ✨ suddenly, I was “quite” motivated to stop eating. Hahahaha!
We had lunch first at Jollibee and then after that we went to Albertus Magnus Building where we’ll be watching the play entitled “Magulong Usapan” it’s nice, funny and short. And many people would relate to the story. From the gay to guy love story and to the “bitin” ex’s story. Love it!! It awaken my sweet bone a bit. Hahhaha.
After the show we had a picture taken with the guy we found cute in the play. And he’s nice. Hahahaha! Probably, his character was the one that introduced himself to me, which I hope that it was for real. Hahaha. But hayy ideal man! 😍
After the play we went back to Plaza Mayor to wait for Camille Co. We went to the photobooth of #FreshGear, uhhh I don’t like the one that my friend chose. My face was so wide there and yeah I hate it!!! It’s just in favor of them!! 😔 it makes me think that I really have to diet again. Hahaha.
Minutes later, Camille Co came and we were really finding the right time to had a picture taken with her. Without knowing that we’ll really have a time for that. Hahahaha. So yeah, I got really excited when I was already beside her, and then when she placed her hand on my shoulder, I got even MORE excited!! ☺️ YAYYYYY!!! Imagine, I never though that I would see her in person, and I saw her in the most unexpected time and place!!! Yaaaaay!!! And also, I’ve been following her on Instagram for quite long and I’m really impressed with how she dresses up herself, and she’s actually the “few” bloggers that are my favorite and the one that I followed.
Haaaaaaay, what a good day. ❤️
