tears of joy

so that was how it felt like. to be soo happy you just end up crying. i've honestly never felt that before, not until almost a month ago, July 18, when my friends gave me a surprise party.

It was a week before my birthday, so ofcourse i didnt expect anything. Truth was, i came from a family day out and just went to Gel's house w my workout clothes coz we were planning to workout that night. Little did i know that as i was in Gel's room waiting for us to start (she had some relatives in the house visiting), everyone else was busy setting up my surprise.

Gel finally came up, and invited me to just eat somewhere first since there were alot of people in the house, it'd be a hassle for all of them to witness our workout session. So eat we went and boy, did i EAT!

Cafe Breton's Le Magnifique Crepe for dessert

After dinner, Gel asked me if i could accompany her to Fuel Up to just check on something. Ofcourse i did not suspect anything, i mean, why would i? her excuse seemed legit (it was.. she cant lie to me haha). so off to Fuel Up we went and on the way up i even tripped coz i was checking Twitter while climbing the stairs (oops)

When i walked into the door, since my eyes were on my phone, i just heard "SURPRISEEEE!!!" i honestly got confused at first. (dumb blonde moment!)in my mind i was like "wait. is it Gel's bday? am i a bad friend for not......ohmygawd" and BOWM. when i looked up i saw Mond, Elmo, Kuya Pao, Ehra, Nyko, Cannu, Saab, Chito. in that order. only then did it hit me that it was MY birthday. the surprise was for ME.

i dont know why but my initial reaction was to walk out. haha.

After showing me the whole set up and how they planned everything via bbm, i hugged everyone thank you and as i hugged my brother, Moe quipped "Bubbs, di ka ba naiiyak?" and i answered "NO!" making it seem as if i wasnt. but then my bro said "naiiyak na yan,,, ang higpit ng yakap sakin eh.."

then it happened. tears just fell from my eyes out of sheer joy.

Thank you VAMPS for everything. i'm so happy to have found you guys :)

sneak peek to our 3 day vacay :)

me & Pwetpwet

food galore!

3 birds

ice candy

western shopper

it's important to have a list when you're grocery shopping. otherwise you end up buying almost everything you just feel like buying even if you dont really need it.

but what makes grocery shopping fun is when you do it with friends,,,, one who has the same wavelength as you and you both hoard everything from ice candies to food organizers, and one who is a more practical shopper (and the photographer in this case)-- the one who would stop you and friend number 1 from buying all those stuff that u obviously only wana buy coz u feel like it.... all these for a 3 day vacation :) (and the groceries apparently didnt stop here)

yes, we also bought this bread container. it's where we kept the muffins that we also bought. haha

didnt buy these snacks.. dried fruits arent really my thing. but yes, i do wear heels even when grocery shopping :)
tanktop, topshop. fringe vest, streetbeatboutique. denim shorts, mango. booties, zara. ring, aldo accessories. bag, louis vuitton.

here i am in my western/cowboy inspired outfit and Gel looking very feminine.
although we posed by all these oils, we didnt purchase any. no to oil! hehe

from food to containers to cleaning agents to toiletries -- we bought them all!!!
hence our realization of the need to have a list...and to never shop hungry.

time heals all wounds.. its better to have loved and lost that never to have loved at all.. so cliche. but then again,

"Almost every cliché contains a truth so profound that people have been compelled to repeat it until it makes you roll your eyes. But the wisdom is still in there."


what else are some lines, more often than not are so cliche but are so true?

    personal thoughts...

    It's sad to see when a person whom you thought would be honest with you would lie to your face over something so irrelevant. And here you thought your friendship was deeper than that. Guess what. You were wrong. She lied.

    Hey you, ponder over what's important in life.. if you're really honest with yourself then maybe you'd learn to be honest with others as well. Maybe you'll stop finding other people's faults and concentrate on fixing your own... Stop psychoanalyzing me and analyze yourself.

    To be the better person and just let things be. To find happiness with people you least expect..

    To finally be in a place where you just stop trying and caring about what other people will think and say...

    To start pleasing yourself and not others...

    And when a friend lies to you, to try and understand the reasons behind that lie...

    ....just some realizations and lessons that i've learned over the past week... I guess 2010 is my year wisdom and understanding... :)

    hair color ad? haha

    Princess, me, Nicolette, Phem

    These are some of the people i 'grew up' with.. what with being 16 and entering a world that was different from what i was brought up in, they served as my ''ate's'', my friends, my guardians, my partners-in-crime.. Modeling was not an easy job, but they made it 'easier' for me...

    We're all doing other things now,, Phem and I crossed over to the showbiz industry while Princess and Nicolette are both F.A.'s... but every once in a while, especially when those who are based in other countries are in town, we get together and bond.. just like the old days :)

    (p.s. too bad Rissa wasnt there when we took the photo!! She's also my 'Ate'!)

    look what i found!
