News: Will It Be Good Or Not?

Hey lovies! I've been anxious for the past few days due to my unknown test results in the entrance exam in College of Saint-Benilde. I've been trying to drown the anxiety and the fear that's at the bottom of my heart with Korean Dramas, rock/alternative music and a lot of mindless chores. I've even turned to cooking and food experimentation just to keep my mind and heart at bay.

I got my results today and I was scared as fuck. I wasn't confident with my test answers and I was pretty sure I shotgunned most of the questions in the Mathematics test. Math's just not my thing, you see. I was really worried that I'm gonna fail the test and end up studying elsewhere. If you guys don't know, I'm changing schools and the school I want to transfer to is part of my previous school's affiliated schools. They're also one of the pioneer and top school for the course I want to take up, which is Multimedia Arts. I just really want to get in the program and the school.

My heart was pounding when I went to the Admissions Office and held that envelope in my hands. I was scared that I'm gonna fail and ruin the opportunity my parents have given me again. I actually prolonged the suspense of knowing the results by staying with some of my friends in my previous school for a while. I just didn't know if I could handle the result or not. I'm actually very thankful that my friends, Tehsa and Clarence, was there for support.

I'm very happy to report to you guys that I've successfully passed the exam and managed to get 19 subjects credited. I don't know if people I know still read this blog or if they are reading it still, know about my circumstances. I just wanted to let my friends that read this blog know since I haven't been that active in Facebook or to frequently go to Taft whenever I miss them. I just thought they should know it via this blog post.

I'm going back to school this September 6 and I can't wait to blog about my experience, hardship and projects in the future. I hope you'll still be there when the time comes that I've fully fixed this phase of my life. That is the reason of making this blog, did you know that? I wanted to have a diary of sorts where I can write and share how I've finally fixed my life. Maybe someday, I'll even use it as part of my autobiography. :)

[07.28.2012] Keep Denim On!

Hey loves! I'm on high spirits today due to the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremonies and I thought why waste my day cooped up inside the house when I can go out and have a breather. I was supposed to go to a bazaar today but sadly my partner in crime refused to go. Traffic was horrible at that time so I understood her. My outfit for today is an answer to a challenge on mixing denim with denim. Hence, the title of this post: Keep Denim On!

I hope you ladies would like this post and maybe even try out mixing your denims with another denim! Even though I'm not really sure if I carried this look well, I do hope I get cookie points for effort and courage. Hahaha! Anyway, here's a rundown of what I wore today. Enjoy!

Acid Washed Denim Top/Thrifted L.L. Bean. DIY Tattered Denim Pants/Jag Jeans. Flats/Australian. Brife Style Open Ring + Owl Necklace/Romwe. Multi-linked Ring/Le Papillon. Bracelets + Bangles/SuperSale Bazaar.

2012 London Olympics

As Benedict Cumberbatch had said, Let the games commence! I am so happy that I've watched even just a part of this awesome opening ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics. I'm so hyped by how spectacular and awesome the opening ceremonies was that I can't even help but gush. With a slow and steady pace, London has done a wondrous job this year. It was simply wonderful. I can't even...

From the lighting, to the cauldron, to the performance of Sir Paul McCartney, and even the inspiring videos that London had prepared for the Olympics. It was just perfect. I'm so happy. I'm a big Londoner at heart and I can't even begin to tell you how much my heart is so full with pride, joy and passion. It was truly one of the best Olympics opening ceremonies that I have watched. Simply amazing.

Here's some of the photos from the 2012 London Olympics:

Seriously. How can you not love the London Olympics' opening ceremonies. It's just so overwhelming. My spine's still tingling and my heart is still racing. I'm still so hyped up and now, I have to excuse myself because I need to breath and find a place where I can watch it all over again. Bye for now! Oh, what's your favorite part of the 2012 London Olympics?

Concert Series: Marc Abaya

Hey you guys! I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't go to Mezza North tonight 'cause of the rain but I'm very happy that I've found some of the processed film rolls that I thought I lost. One of those rolls is filled with concert photos from school that I've taken during my 2nd year. I was so happy that I decided to share it to you guys. I'm gonna cut it into parts or something 'cause it's too long.

Actually, scrap that. I'm gonna make this post a Marc Abaya appreciation post. I love this guy. He's a great musician, actor and person as a whole. Not to mention he's also one smart dude. I just love him. If you're a long time follower of this blog, you might have seen me post about Marc Abaya and some of the photos I've taken of him. I know, I know. I'm sorry. I just can't help myself! I'm such a fan and I really want to share it with you guys. So, here's my little Marc Abaya appreciation post! :)

Is it just me or does these photos look like he's making love to his guitar? I think this is one of the reasons why I love Marc Abaya so much. He's so passionate, grounded and very zen. I just love his aura!

Another thing I like about Marc Abaya is his voice. I've known his as a singer since my high school days and his type of music isn't the regular mainstream one. I can't explain it to you guys fully but to those that have heard Marc Abaya's voice would get me. I hope.

I also like his confidence when he's on stage. He's confident yet it's not arrogant. It's just right. Maybe I'm a little bit biased but, I just find him so full of confidence that you'll feel awed by him. He just has this clear and pure aura yet still exude such smexy vibes. Gah!

If you've seen Marc Abaya during a concert you'd know that he's very relaxed and proper when he's in a concert but you won't feel like he's lacking in showmanship. I think what I love about Marc Abaya is his way of connecting to the crowd. The way he connects feels intimate, like he's singing it to you or like you're just jamming or even as if you just heard him sing while he's in the shower. It's so relaxed yet very powerful and I love that about him.

Another reason why I love Marc Abaya is that he loves his fans. He's just so full of positive energy that it resonates and envelopes you every time he sings, points a finger to you or even just staring at your camera. The feeling as a fan is just bliss~

Lastly, I love how Marc Abaya's humble. Always humble.

Film Stock

Hey you guys! I have a lot of film rolls that I still haven't processed and i thought I'd go out to today to process some of them. Hopefully, I'll have a good few rolls. I think I've stocked them up for almost a year now. I hope they haven't expired or got exposed accidentally. I'll post the photos later with my film scanner that I bought last year. xx

Mezza Norte

At first, there was Mercato then came Distrito and many other midnight food hubs had followed since then. I'm really happy to tell you guys that the North finally has it's own "Mercato". If you're not familiar with what Mercato Centrale is, it's an overnight hawker style food market where foodies like me hangout and enjoy ourselves 'till the wee mornings. It's not a daily thing but more of a week-end extravagance. I'm really excited to go here later with my family since I don't usually go out with my friends when they're going to Mercato Centrale. I live in the North, Mercato's on the far South. It was just not meant to be. So, when I heard that the organizers of Mercato Centrale was planning on opening something similar to it here in the North, I was thrilled.

If you guys are from the North and you're planning on having a great food week-end, I suggest you drop on by to Mezza Norte. They've got good food, great music and wi-fi! Not to mention the entrance is FREE! It's just every food bloggers dream. Right? I'll post tomorrow the photos from Mezza North if my parents do agree on going there later. :)

If you're going to Mezza later, let me know! I'd love to meet some of you guys. :)

Bum Report: Korean Dramas Worth Watching

Hey you lovely lovely readers! Here's my bum report for the day. I'm going to tell you guys 4 awesome Korean Dramas that you will tug the strings of your heart, excite your bones and give you spine tingling suspense.  Being a bum in the meantime has its perks you know, once in a while. I've been watching Korean dramas, variety shows and even music videos for about a month now and I think I'm really getting hooked. I try to stop myself but the shows are just too good, I can't stop. Anyway, I just wanted to recommend to you guys 4 Korean Dramas that are a must watch this year. I guarantee it!

These two dramas are period dramas and they are the bomb. I've just started watching the first drama, Bridal Mask, and I've started crying on episode 2 or 3. It's not your typical romance drama nor is it a romance drama per say. The story takes place during the 1930s in the Japanese occupied Joseon region of Korea. If I were to compare it to a western movie or series, I would say it's much like Zorro but with a great twist. It has an anti for a hero and you will have a love-hate relationship with him. He will make you cry by just doing a monologue on Episode 4. I'm sure of it. I can't give you guys anymore information since I'm still watching it myself but I really recommend that you watch it. It's really good!

The second drama, The Moon That Embraces The Sun, I've heard is a good drama as well. The story was set during the old kingdom days of Korea and it revolves around 3 people. The girl that was saved by the shaman, and the 2 sons of the king. I won't tell you much about it but I will tell you guys one thing, I'm excited to see the lead actors. The 2 lead actors are total hotties and I'm in love with Kim Soo Hyun, he's the adult Royal Prince. I've watched him in Dream High and I know how good he is as an actor. I have high hopes for this drama and my friends have told me that it's a must see.

I have a thing for Romantic Comedies and these two dramas are the best among all of the ones currently showing. Although Big, poster on the left, had just finished airing this week, it's a great drama and you shouldn't miss it or wait 'till next year to watch it. You're actually very lucky since you don't have to wait for the next episodes. I remember waiting for the current episodes every week and getting frustrated with the cut scenes during the end of the shows. Hahaha! But I guess that's part of the thrill of watching currently showing shows, the thrill.

Big has a similar concept with Secret Garden, for those who don't know the concept of Secret Garden I'm presuming you've lived under a rock or a hermit. I am a big fan of Gong Yoo, the lead actor, and I've been watching his previous dramas and movies. I just love him, his charisma, and his mighty fine abs. Hahaha! Sorry. I just had to gush. I know you might not believe me about how hot he is but, here. Just look at how adorable he can be but still look very hot. Hahaha!

Do you see that fine abs? The toned body? That sexy hair going down to... Ah! *explodes*
The last Korean Drama I'm recommending you guys is A Gentleman's Dignity. This is my favorite drama for this year and I'm so happy that I actually watched it. When I was surfing for dramas to watch, I actually didn't want to watch AGD because the poster looked dull and boring plus the description also looked dull but when I watched it, I was blown away. This drama would make you love all of the characters and cheer them on with their love interests. I'm telling you guys, this drama is a MUST MUST MUST watch! It's about how 4 middle aged men, around 40 years old, grow up or become more mature. I really can't explain it clearly but I'm really telling you guys to watch it. If you've watched it and thought that it was rubbish, comment to me or message me and I will post or promote anything you want. But to make sure that you really did see it, I'm gonna ask you a few questions. What do you think? Do we have a deal?

Anyway, that's that. I hope you guys watch these Korean dramas and enjoy it as much as I did when I watched them. Do you know a Korean drama that's worth watching? Comment down below! I really want to watch good Korean Dramas while I still can. :)
