Does God Exist?

My Aunt posted this video on facebook and when i watched it i couldnt help but watch it again and again.. its so AMAZING. it's a social campaign commercial for education and i just had to share it with everyone...

I have always believed in God, never doubted His existence, but this 1 minute ad is just really incredible. it will make them non-believers think, in my opinion.

the way that "the kid" explained everything is just so awe-inspiring...

so please, just spare a minute of your time to watch it, and see for yourselves :)

"Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is one who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we're gone."
- Holly Kennedy (PS I Love You, Cecelia Ahern)

guess who

i just HAD to take a photo when i saw it..
so... can YOU tell which one's which?? :)


i've been wanting to have a hair cut for months, but since Zorro required me to keep my hair really long, i made do with subtle layers that started from my shoulders... Now that it got packed up and Tita A has given me the go signal, then off to Basement Salon Rockwell i went and had my hair chopped off. and unlike the other times when i had my hair cut, not once did i doubt that i'll regret having it done :)

goodbye waist long hair...

hello shorter 'do with layers starting from under my nose :)

thanks sooo much to my hairstylist, Freddie Schaffer
of Basement Salon Rockwell

lovin' the layers!!! :)

VERY affordable flats :)

what do u guys think of my new 'do? :) love it or hate it?

7 lessons

I was goin thru this website and i saw a page about life lessons... there was quite a list of them there, but among them, i only picked out those that i feel are the lessons i did learn. i trimmed it down to 7,, here they are:

I've learned that no matter how much I care some people just don't care back.

I've learned that it's not what you have in your life, but whom you have in your life that counts.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief. about you? what are some of the things YOU've learned in life? leave it in the comment box and share your thoughts :)

some words to live by

"Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter,
and those who matter don't mind."

- Dr. Seuss


yes, i do go shopping in heels. 4 inches at that :) here i am shopping with Nicole.. the mall was about to close already, so since there weren't much people left, we decided to take pictures of our shopping outfits :)

final hurrah

Right after we packed up taping, the whole team --- by team i mean all 344 people from production, actors not included yet -- partied the night away with one final hurrah for Zorro. Ofcourse, no cast party wont be complete if there wasn't a beauty contest of some sort for the *ehem* 'girls'.. :) It was a fun-filled night full of production numbers, special videos --from music vids to bloopers,-- and of course, raffle prizes so no one went home empty handed. All the more reasons why i'm super gonna miss my Zorro family :)

under the sea...

i miss diving.

i miss being underwater.
i miss seeing the abundance of marine life.
i miss being fascinated by all these creatures you never thought exist.
the relaxing feeling you get once you're underwater...
as if you have nothing to worry about at all...
the feeling of being in another universe, when infact, you're just a few (hundred) feet below..

who wouldn't be inlove with the pufferfish, the parrotfish, the lionfish, the starfish, the nudibranchs and all those other things you can find?

where every dive, every experience is different from the last...

where else can u find a school of barracuda swimming less than a feet away from you?

i can go on and on and on.. but it will never give justice to what i'm really talking about... here are some pictures that i took from my past dives... just to give u some idea... it's paradise down there :)


lionfish swimming towards a coral

--this almost attacked me coz i kept taking its picture.. youre not supposed to take pics of seasnakes. theyre fatal. but ofcourse when i took this pic, i didnt really know that, i was just aliw with it. hahahaha when stupidity hits. but hey, the pic is nice! :)--

taken from a nightdive

i found NEMO!! :p (in the back is my dive instructor, Jojo Ng)

birds of the same feather...

we all post pictures of ourselves with details about our outfits...
we chronicle about our lives and others as well...
we are all so different, yet so similar in so many ways..
and all of us are based in different parts of the planet.
but we're friends.. in the real world and cyber one :)

so, if u enjoy goin through my blog... check out their blogs too! :)

Marie Digby

The first time i saw Marie Digby singing on youtube, i became an instant fan. her voice is just so easy on the ears, so nice to listen to. So when i found out that Fearless Productions was bringing her in and that they were giving me seats in a vip table, i got excited.

So there i was, watching, enjoying.. when towards the end, Jomari & Ronald approached me and whisked me off to the backstage... apparently, i was gona go onstage to help them thank Marie & her band and give them flowers. and we got intoduced also backstage (too bad my cam wasnt w me then.. grr) awesome birthday gift i must say.. Thanks Ronald!! :)

Marie singing one of her original songs

Marc Jacobs dress & Christian Louboutin shoes :)

there's a first time for everything

one Sunday night, we were all so hungry so we decided to eat in Som's... i've tried their food before in someone's house (they had someone buy it) but i never got to eat there mismo... so that day, we all decided to have our dinner there.. yes, Som's is a carinderia place near Rockwell that serves yummy yummy Thai food... it was suuuper good! :) cant wait til my next visit :)
