So it’s been an adventure of ups and downs in school, and last friday, a newscasting contest was held in our school for the Junior and Senior students.
Daryl’s MacBook Air!
I present you, our judges.
Third year students.
Zumba experience, ahaha!
Aaaand after school, I went to Paseo with my friends to celebrate one of my bestfriend’s birthday!
We ate at Bonchon!
There’s this sort-of antique shop where they sell really cool stuff! I wanted to buy this old designed books for myself. (But they’re too expensive)
After roaming around for some time, we went to Starbucks to go hang and order Butterbeer fraps (which we had to give the recipes). And lemme tell you this, it was really fab!
A lot can happen in one rainy evening.
So after the kainan at King Bee with some of my relatives and family friends, I went to Paseo’s Starbucks along with Jom, Marj, and Patc which are some of my childhood friends. They’re also a part of Mofos if you must know. I was still wearing my black dress from dad’s short prayer mass in Bel Air’s church. I’m really lucky I didn’t freeze to death despite of the rainy evening and air-conditioning in Starbucks…….it was actually quite cozy and warm because of the couch.
Selfies while waiting for our “”boyfriend”” to order our food and drinks! (Yes, emphasis to OUR boyfriend)
And more selfies!
We made the best out of the money our Tito gave us! Bought three different flavored fraps, 2 Belgian waffles, a blueberry cheesecake, a cinammon swirl, a nutella cake and of course, water. We all shared our food.
We made most out of the 5 hours we had. We took selfies, ate our food, talked about a hell lot of random stuff, laughed our asses off, made pinky swears, played dumb ways to die, and I met a new friend whom the three already knew. (did I forgot to mention something?)
And of course, played Monopoly. Patc and Jom ended teaming up and same goes for Marj and I. The other two were couples and called themselves babe as if they were really married and Marj and I were a part of the rainbow society for a while. Jom and I then had a monopoly warfare since the two of us took the game seriously while the other girls just laughed at us. Nobody really won, but I can say that it was really fun arguing and playing with them. :))
This photo is from Jom which he posted in instagram. Thought I could grab it for a while to post it here. :))
Selfies before we leave.
And a selfie with the person who I unexpectedly had a monopoly warfare with. =))
Had so much fun! And I just realized that this sembreak was the greatest so far, and that I made most out of it. :)
Grayscale; exclusively of shades of gray, varying from black at the weakest intensity to white at the strongest.
Sembreak just started and I’m already having fun. :)
So last October 26th, I was out the whole day. I left the house at around 6:30 in the morning, went to McDonald’s to get some breakfast, commute all the way to Paseo to meet Ken, and she drove me to STC for the Benilde Entrance Exam.
Ken, Jono and I were the only Bosconians who took the BEE in STC.
Yup, I love roadtripping with Ken :* We went to get some lunch at Paseo after the test.
Then went to Sam’s house! We were using Ken’s iphone to take pictures.
Both of use are wearing tank tops, oooh twinzies
Buford is sucha cutie *u*
Chloe went to Sam’s house to meet us, then Ken drove us to Robinsons to buy food for the NUCinema, then went to the Nuvali fields.
We were seated in the middle. There were A LOT of people in the place!
The sky was really beautiful when it’s the late afternoon.
Joyce Pring was the host of the event. I kinda fangirled, oops.
And Ken was my date. <3
We watched a number of short films made by people who probable leaves near Nuvali. All films were taped in Nuvali! And I really want to download some films, such as Bugtong, HelloGoodbye, Pare Koi, The blind story (I forgot the title), Tayo, Ambassador, etc.
After the short films, they showed Transit, which was a really good movie. My friends had to go home, and Leo was willing to stay with me until the movie ends. His mom dropped me home, and I really thank him for that! \:D/
I had so much fun! <3 This is the best way to start the sembreak.
So it’s been a while since I last blogged…. Hectic school schedules were a drag.
We had a newscasting competition before sembreak started. And it’s been a real disaster. So I’ll probably just post pictures and move on.
I was assigned in the entertainment part of our news casting project. Jono and I were partners, and we were really prepared for our turn. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time, so we only presented half of what we prepared which makes me really sad….
Anyway, school’s been a real deal lately. I’m glad we still have our sembreak, even though it’s only for one week.
Hi guys! There’s been a lot happening lately due to the messed up schedule our school gave us.
I now welcome you to the Miyazaki party place. =))
We have balloons, food, and games prepared!
Some of the Armalites with Sir Renz and Sir Jefferson!
We had our self containment for 1 hour and 30 minutes, and I was pulled by Liabel to be the photojourn of the day. I was tasked to take pictures of the Amazing Race activities and Quiz Bee!
….From Grade 7 up to us Seniors, I was there to take photos.
After the activities, everyone went to their respective classrooms and celebrated Teacher’s day! Our class had a lot of food.
We had some party music, too!
Our unfinished Bulletin Board.
Our DIY pinyata! =))
We had our adviser to hit it. He actually cheated.
And someone brought ice candy for everyone!
Games, games, games.
Sir Garret’s cake! (Yeauh we had a lot of surprises comin’. That’s how dedicated we are to our Gen!)
Filipino and English teacher! They’re the best.
We gave a boxer brief for Sir, an edited poster, a certificate, and cake!
MIYAZAKI ARMALITES!! \:D/ And General Garret P. Arma is our leader.
After this, I went to Canteen 2 immediately to prepare and fix the cupcakes I made for Nikki.
Harry Potter themed, errrbody!
Sam made face cutouts just like how You Tubers sometimes does.
And we actually made her cry.
"CHOOSE WISELY THE HOUSE OF YOUR CHOICE"
Llama family! <3 (incomplete)
I really had fun! Senior year’s becoming a real blast in a good way now.
Yesterday, Sam and I made cupcakes in four colors to create a Harry Potter theme thing to surprise Nikki for her birthday. The surprise was a success, I’ll tell more about that soon.
I was so stoked to bake again since Sam brought the electric mixer with her!
Can’t let this moment pass by without taking any selfies! AHAHA
Blue and green colored cupcakes for Ravenclaw and Slytherin!
It was Sam’s first attempt to make icing (from scratch!) And amazingly, it was a successsssssssssssss
Cupcake completion! Red for Gryffindor, Yellow for Hufflepuff, Blue for Ravenclaw, and Green for Slytherin!
Yeah look at those moist bitchiz
Packed them and bought it to school being too careful not to mess with everything.
I asked Nathan to place logos of the houses to sticks so that we’ll be able to put them in the cupcakes.
Gonna blog about the surprise next. :)
I know it’s been 4 days since our fieldtrip, but meh, better late than never.
The fieldtrip was fun…..the plans for it just failed to execute. Our so-called fieldtrip turned into a roadtrip actually….
Popcoooooorn in a cup because grabbing a handful is too mainstream
People were already eating even if the bus just took off from school! AHAHA
And I was messing up with Nikki’s phone. I decided to take selfies and change her lockscreen and homescreen photo ;) (Her phone can now scare mice away)
My bus mate and one of my bestfriends, Nerrrkiiiiii!
With Andgrel :)
I told you Nikki’s phone can now scare mice away. ;) Thanks to my tweaking.
Lloyd and Chloe grabbing Pringles yay
Echoes ID! :-bd All Echoes members are tasked to wear the IDs (well it depends on you really)
I played one of my all time favorite games in Nathan’s ipad mini! Which makes me want to own an ipad mini Oh God :((
Took selfies with Nikki and changed Nathan’s ipad’s homescreen and lockscreen photos. ;)
We went to ABS-CBN to have our tour!
Tickets and pins, yay for freebies.
And we roamed around ABS-CBN and finally saw the actual size of the studios they use!
And Ryan Bang and Vhong Navarro :(((( (Vhong waved and said hi to me and the butterflies inside me went alive ohmygod)
The fat kid from Goin’ Bulilit! (They were actually taping a scene lol)
Minute To Win It’s studio!
We saw a heck lot of stuff in ABS-CBN and I actually had fun!
I bought my favorite dish in Chowking which is the Pork Chao Fan which made me really happy since I only got 2 hamdesals with me for lunch.
And the rain poured down.
Here’s a fun fact: We were supposed to go to Bulacan, San Gregorio Park, but 159 Inglesia Ni Kristo buses were on the way, thus the traffic. It was then announced that we’ll be going to MOA instead. We stayed inside the bus for 5 hours straight! (Including gasoline stops for comfort room purposes though)
We watched The Mommy Returns and Immortals while in the bus; We closed all the curtains to have the dark cinematic feeling. I took broken naps, ate food, and talked to some folks. I was too lazy to take more photos.
We went to this animation thing near MOA and I got really bored.
And the last destination for our fieldtrip, MOA. Finally got to hang out with my friends from other buses, too! <3
With Derek Ramsay…………
Inside the movie house thing in the Nido Museum thing (I’m sorry if I’m not specific enough lol)
I WANT TO TAKE EVERY CAMERA HOME!!!!!! :((( (Even the large one ahahaha!)
After roaming around the Nido place, Nikki and I were nuts so we had an amazing race to go to Starbucks. We waited for Chloe, Nathan, and Lloyd there. Ordered fraps and food and went to the bus waiting area.
We left moa by 8 something pm. It was really late, and I was kinda happy about it. Watched Zombading with the lights off inside the bus.
As I said, the fieldtrip was fun……….we just didn’t get to go to the places we were supposed to go.
Ugh I wish we should have watched Showtime instead of going to MOA.
Dear Raindow, maaari mo bang ipahayag sakin ang iyong tanong sa maayos na paraan? :))) Salamat.
Finally had the time to blog about this.
Hello! So this is my HS life’s last Buwan Ng Wika celebration, and I really had fun.
We had a Career Talk last September 4, 2013! And I did learn a heck lot of stuff in preparation for college.
We had to prepare for the Sabayang Pagbigkas competition after the talk, and that means the classroom had to be messy with all the paint provided and we sacrificed by not eating out during recess.
Everyone had to wear eyeliner……even the dudes.
And as the preparation and fixing of costumes continued, we didn’t forgot to take pictures.
I am proud to say that me and my section (fourth year Miyazaki) won the Sabayang Pagbigkas!! Although, I want to congratulate all of the seniors for doing a job well done, the competition was really tight.
Armalites, all our hard work didn’t go to waste. :-bd
September 6, 2013: Araw Ng Wika (culminating activity)
While the elementary students are having their Holy mass inside the school gymnasium, all high school students had their “self-containment” period where everyone had to stay in their respective classrooms. The good part is, we can do what ever we want. And some of the Miyazaki peeps and I decided to take pictures.
(lol at reverse twerking with @rae-ban)
Only posting these photos. There’s more actually.
After the holy mass of the high school department, everyone in Miyazaki was tasked to get the food and drinks inside our classroom and proceed to Canteen 2’s private room to eat. This is the 20th year of Don Bosco, and we weren’t really allowed to bring food to share like we usually do every Buwan Ng Wika. But we’ve figured out that it’s our last stay this year, so why not mess things up a little?
Food food foooooooooood sharing <3
I went to hang with my closest friends after recess. :) It was a really hot day.
Hanabanana being carried by strong Julia!
Seniors who volunteered to play Kadang-kadang was tasked to proceed to the field for the games. And guess what? Miyazaki won again! (And I’m one of the players in kadang-kadang lol)
Angelo was unbelievably fast at this!
And that’s me lol
Some guys wore bahags. I loved their uniformity.
Miyazaki Armalites salutes you.
And after the palarong pinoy, we had to prepare since we’ll be presenting our Sabayang Pagbigkas again during the culminating activity. We had a Mutya competition too.
Showing of talents by the Mutyas.
Sadulawit of the Juniors
continuation of the talent portion!
I present you, the mutyas of 2013!
And the second to the last presentation which is by the grade 8 students of Castelnouvo.
And for the last show, Miyazaki, presenting Pat Villafuerte’s “Wikang FIlipino sa Pambansang Kalayaan at Pagkakaisa”
Funny thing, I got tired of scrubbing all the paint off of my skin after the presentation. :)) I wanted to take a shower as soon as we finished the last sabayang pagbigkas presentation AHAAHAHA!
That’s it I guess. I’ll be blogging more soon. :)
Okay, so it’s been a really long week end for us people living in the really warm Philippines. The humid weather has finally calmed down, and there’s been a lot happening recently……such as the giving of relief goods to the people affected by the storm, the pork-barrel protest, the never ending movie marathons of the bored people stuck in their own homes, and of course, the big break we students have all been waiting for (long week end) (Still hoping that we still have our sembreak though)
Anyway, what really mattered to me the most with the current events is the Bazooka Rocks Festival 2 @ SMX. This is honestly the third concert I’ve attended, and I’m really having a good time in my cheap age. :-bd
SO the concert was on a sunday, and I woke up really early—-I woke up earlier than my alarm clock! My friend thought I was really excited, sure, I am, but I was awakened by the really cold and shivering surrounding even as my sheets cover my whole body.
Too detailed, let’s go skip to the good part.
Before my friends pick me up in our house, my mom tasked me to go buy Knor Cubes at 7eleven which is just a walking distance away from where we live. It was really hot outside, and I was really thankful that I have worn really comfortable and summer-y clothes for the concert.
I didn’t get a chance to buy mom’s cooking ingredient btw since they were out of stock. Anyway, when I got back, I was really sweaty. Luckily, I managed to fix myself again before my friend waits outside.
Finally, they picked me up and we were really bulky inside their car since his Tito was the one who drove us to MOA, and he had to bring his family with him. I respect and thank them though for the ride. :)
Karis, Luke, and I went to Bonchon to eat lunch since we were really starving (or was it only me?)
Aaaand after eating, we waited for Tricia outside of SMX since I promised her that we won’t enter without her.
When we entered, Radio Drive By was the one playing on stage. They really did sound good!
With some friends, Luke and Tricia. :)
We decided to hit the photobooth then line up to buy band merch. The line was reaaaaaally long!! And as we waited for the progress and movement of the long ass line, Uchusentai Noiz (a Japanese band) was playing on stage. They caught my attention when I heard them playing Narda (Duh, a Filipino song) on stage, and I find that really cool!
It was Tonight Alive’s turn to play on stage after Uchusentai Noiz’s set, and I was really torn in between leaving our line for the merch or to go listen to Tonight Alive (which Tricia and I really want to)
So we’ve decided that the two dudes still line up and Tricia and I go near Tonight Alive and jam
Ladies and Gentlemen, the crowd.
We were so close to the stage!! :((
And random fact: I fell. D:
After Tonight Alive’s set, Tricia and I called Jono and Luke to ask how has been the line going. They were already on the barricades part of the merch line, and we couldn’t really enter anymore.
Tricia was really starving, so she bought a burger and drink at Burger King’s stall. As she eats, she saw Ate Chesca whom we met during The Cab’s show at Glorietta!!!
After eating, Tricia changed her clothes and we went out to explore more of SMX’s place!
…..We rested and took selfies after roaming around.
Shoes shoes shoes…….with their battle scars.
When we entered, We Came As Romans was the one playing on stage, and Tricia and I partied a little on the back part of the really huge crowd.
I was hungry, and I really find Burger King’s deal so cool and money saving! 100 pesos for a large drink and burger ugh why can’t this happen outside of SMX D:
And……we met Edward Ramirez btw…….just saying.
And funny thing, after finishing our burgers and as we drink our drinks, we heard a lot of shouting behind me. I have realized that the rambling was about All Time Low’s MnG when I checked out my phone’s clock! So Tricia and I had no choice but to leave our drinks behind and go check ATL out…….because heck yeah that’s what real fangirls do: do anything just to get a glimpse of their favorite band crew :(((((
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus was playing on stage when Luke has finally bought our merch (which I’m really bitter of because when it was his turn to pay, they ran ouT OF BAZOOKA ROCKS SHIRTS OH MY GOD??????????)
And heck yeah, we jam and sang along as they sand one of their most known songs, Your Guardian Angel.
(The vocalist even took his shirt off and threw it on the crowd oh my god who is the lucky person who got it D:)
We’ve decided to listen to Anberlin since the crowd will be really huge and we figured out that we won’t get a proper (and near) glimpse of ATL if we don’t join Anberlin’s crowd.
I was really sad since Anberlin didn’t get to play Inevitable which is my favorite song that they wrote. :((((((
The crowd goes wilder even if ATL’s set didn’t start yet. Themusic adn sound checkers (idk what to call them, sorry) even played My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark and Still Into You on speakers, and the whole crowd was singing, as if we were all chanting because of the pushing people at the back part of the crowd.
Gitgitan talaga siya okay, how can I even emphasize it?
ATL’S SET IS JUST SO MIND BLOWING THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF STORIES THAT NEEDS TO BE TOLD SJHFBVKJSHFDV
And of course, the moment we’ve all been waiting for, ARTTM’s set!
I cried so hard oh my god and I had a heck lot of eye conversations (eye contact) with Halvo and we were so near the stage and I was having sO MUCH FEELINGS and I just can’t ugh
STOP IT, YOU’RE HURTING ME :((
(well yeah at least I got a picture with ARTTM) (and it’s not a world map anymore, it’s a picture of ARTTM with Manila’s crowd with me WITH the crowd heck yeah)
My right arm consisted of….
Some folks. :) Thanks guys.
Shout out to the fans I met during the long ass concert, by the way!
Only got these, but the memories and experience were much better than the merch. ;)
The concert was a real blast! There were a lot of singing and dancing, jumping, shouting, chanting, walking, running, and of course, fan girling. No regrets of what happened.
I didn’t get to tell every single detail on this post, but I hope the ones who’ll be reading are satisfied. :) Thanks for sticking with me.
I’ll be posting more pictures soon. Stay tuned!
UGH. Hindi ko alam, I’ll probably hide because of too much embarrassment. =)))
