Because I’ve actually changed for the better after the things that happened to me recently…
So I’ve been having a really hectic schedule and yet I still managed to blog about how I started by January….it’s because I love you all and I still want you guys to think that my life is interesting so….. (if people still actually read my blog lol)
We had our creative shots in school and I’ve been hanging out and being social again. Sometimes, I get to buy streetfood with some friends and talk about a heck lot of stuff.
I’m not satisfied with my creative shot, though.
As a pioneer of the Bosconian Click organization, we are tasked a heck lot of stuff; not just the band and dance contest trailers for the 20th foundation day, but also other multimedia stuff — I don’t want to spoil yet. In case lower years are reading this, I want the talented to join our organization! We’ll be recruiting members this february, so watch out for announcements.
The start of Intramurals and all Seniors were so stressed during the BM Bazaar! I’m happy I get to help with our business, even though I had to leave our booth most of the time due to my Echoes and BClick duties. I was also tasked by Sir Alexis to take pictures of the participants of the Dance and Band contests!
What’s Intrams without getting to watch the games? (And being a part of it) With all the cheering and that stuff….
I designed this year’s Intrams logo by the way! This is something I should be proud of. And to be honest, I love it when people actually approach me to tell me what I made is really great. Even our SDC loved it!
More sports and games and fun!
These are some stuff that happened this month where I described it more in photos. What a way to start 2014.
But to summarize what’s up with my January…
I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you’re always right,
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh,
even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you’re not around,
and the fact that you didn’t call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,
not even close…
not even a little bit…
not even at all.

10 Things I Hate About You
Our mind is as colorful as the afternoon sky where different colors mix together creating a beautiful effect.
And as I look up the sky, I remember the stories I heard earlier today… how simple yet wonderful the love story our English teacher told me and my friends, and my friends’ parents’ love story.
Then it hit me, what kind of love do I even want?
And now the part 2 begins!
After taking the Ferry from Hong Kong, we finally arrive to Macau!
We then had our hotel’s shuttle service to pick us up.
The sights of Macau truly is wonderful.
It was really cold and the hotel was warm and cozy. Plus, the people were actually accommodating! As soon as we arrive to our room, we rested for a short while and fixed our stuff, then grabbed something to eat. We didn’t bother going out because we were so tired.
We were out the whole time the next day.
The Venetian was uhhh-mazing! The inside of the beautiful looking buildings outside was literally filled with gold inside.
Just had to take a really cute picture of the cute couple finding out where to go next (plus, the painting is majestic and wonderful at the same time)
We crossed the road to enter the City of Dreams.
We have no choice and was really starving so we rushed to the nearest food shop we can see………..and it’s actually McDonald’s! It was delish to eat food you’re really familiar with instead of the Chinese food…
Then took a taxi and went to Plaza Senado!
The place was full of people due to the holidays! But it was fine.
Then to St. Dominic Church which was cool.
They had this mini museum of the statues and stuff upstairs, and I had to take a picture of the wonderful crowns of the statues of saints.
Went to roam around again.
And walked aaaaaaaallllllll the way up to the Macau Museum! My mom was trying to figure out how to get to the Ruins of St. Paul since that’s what she really came here for.
And I discovered a side gate away of the castle looking place!
Rested for a while since going uphill was really tiring.
FAYER IN DA HOLE
Funny since when we asked for directions to go to the Ruins of St. Paul, we discovered that the police guard was a Filipino. He told us which way to go, and had a little chat about his past. We heard that he was already living in Macau since 1996 and wasn’t regretting it since the place was really disciplined.
Then we finally arrived.
The Ruins of St. Paul was really fascinating and beautiful! We took a heck lot of pictures and roamed around and saw the brief history of the church.
The view from the Ruins.
And the view of the ruins from a distance.
Eventually found our way out after a while of walking around with the people from different places.
Was finally back at The Venetian since we didn’t get to roam around that much earlier.
I’m so close to being a Victoria’s Secret model, I just need connections and a hotter bod.
Ate snacks since I was really famished. The food in this place was really expensive. (And I mean REALLY)
And roamed around again.
We wanted to take a boat ride, but it was expensive again and costs 500 HK Dollars. We figured out that we can use that money in something else. Besides, we were hoping to take a boat ride to Venice……..soon.
And beauties of the girls who were in the boat ride thing. D:
And we’re off to Cotai Strip which is just beside of The Venetian!
OHHH DA FROZEN MOVIE FEELINGS
And this girl right here reminded me SO MUCH of Queen Elsa and Marzia (Felix’s gf)
Mingled and watched a heck lot of shows around the place. There are different shows every 30 minutes. And did I mention that they have a heck lot of free stuff?
This was the second time I skated, and lemme just emphasize that skating is NOT that easy as it looks. I had to hold on to the sides of the rink every now and then to prevent myself from slipping! It was still fun, though.
The buildings were really looking good with all the lights!
And we went home after roaming around some more and eating food.
Was so bummed when we were about to go home. Nakakabitin e, HAHA.
So before going to the airport, we enjoyed the resort’s facilities first!
The Westin is where we stayed in, by the way.
And I end this blogpost with a picture from our PAL flight on the way to MNL from Macau! The sky is wonderful with all the colors along with the tiny clouds.
I finally have the time to blog again. Cheers for me, yay!
So after celebrating Christmas in Acacia Hotel along with the De Lara and Celerian family, Me and my family had a fun getaway to Hong Kong and Macau last December 31 up to the 4th of January. It was really fun, and we had a heck lot of experience again. Sure it was tiring, but it feels really great to explore another country. This trip made me remember and miss Dubai even more.
Up above the clouds.
Rode the Philippine Airlines as our plane, and for the two hour trip, I had one of my best buds; a fictional book.
At the Hong Kong Airport! (And my ootd I guess, ahaha!)
And yeah sure, I had to push the luggage cart.
They have really unusual taxis, and a heck lot of phones, too! Most of the people in this place wasn’t accommodating, though.
Stayed in Marriott Hong Kong Skycity Hotel (which is probably one of the best hotels in this place)
*insert dad on the other part of the bed* Timer cameras at it’s best. We went to Fu Tung Plaza to take a look around and eat dinner after checking in.
The next day, we went to Disneyland which I was really looking forward to in our trip. (I’m still a kid at heart, don’t judge)
There were a lot of people, but the place didn’t seem to look crowded. It was the holidays, after all.
They had this really techy and cute tickets! You just have to swipe them to be able to enter, no need to wear the paper bracelets as tickets I used to have when I go to amusement parks. Convenient, and I get to keep mine!
The weather was cold and sunny at the same time. Everyone had to wear winter clothing.
Since we went there early, we had to buy breakfast in this place which I do not even regret doing.
Mickey Waffles r da bomb
Expensive, but delish.
What’s an adventure without shopping for stuff? I must say that everything is so expensive in this place.
This is where I belong. #Royalty
Considering this as a family picture for Goofy’s one of my dad’s favorite Disney characters.
I’m sorry for the badly taken picture, but yes this actually happened; As we line up to take pictures with the Disney Characters, we saw Mickey and Minnie walking while holding each other’s hands, then Mickey twirled Minnie as if they’re dancing and pulled her close for a kiss!! CAN WE ALL TAKE A MOMENT TO FAN GIRL OF THIS HAPPENING, I HAD SO MUCH BUTTERFLIES IN MY STOMACH.
The parade which I find really awesome! There are more pictures, but I guess putting everything in here won’t help.
We also watched a show called The Golden Mickey which is similar to the Oscars since they award the artists in different categories.
These were my favorites, and the Little Mermaid. (had so much feelings with Beauty and the Beast though)
Experienced fake snow during the night.
I didn’t get to take photos while we take the rides, but yeah everything was worth it! Went back to our hotel late at night.
The next day, we had to travel to Hong Kong Central to take a Ferry for a boat ride to Macau. But we had to ride the train. (Yes, we didn’t get to explore HK that much. The place is pretty much full of greenery and highways, and the city was really crowded. I asked mom if we could go to the night market, but me being a real weirdo was told by my own mother that I probably won’t buy anything and will just find the people in that place rude and arrogant)
The train wasn’t that full.
Really like the fashion sense in this place.
By the way, all pictures in this post are raw and unedited. #lazyass
Gonna blog about Macau next!
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. :)
