KDrama: Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

Anyeeonng!

As you guys know, I have been obsessed with KDramas, KMovies and all things Asian these past few days. I've been preoccupying myself with movies but then I couldn't resist watching series. I got hooked in this one drama because of my crush Lee Ki Woo, a very fine and absurdly tall man. I was actually searching for some of his movies when I came across one of his dramas. So, I checked it out and now I have recently finished watching this cute Korean drama entitled, Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. If you're wondering who Lee Ki Woo is, he's the tall one wearing light blue polo. Or just to make it easier, he's the second one from the right. :)

LEAP 2K12


LEAP 2K12 enrollment, a yearly event in my school that helps enhance student's other skills and a sort of day off for some teachers, is today and I had my eyes set on 2 classes. One was a photography workshop and the other one was a blogger's heaven. I got the chance to actually get the class that I wanted and I chose "The Runway of Blogging" class. Wanna guess who'll be the guest bloggers that will be talking on that day?

Inspiration Trunk: Touch


The power of a person's presence and touch, for me, is far more greater than any gift or sweet words that a person can give. The electrifying intensity that only you and the other person can feel is magical and intoxicating. The soft skins brushing against each other and forming silent patterns in your brain that can make you feel at home is almost too hard to bear for me. So, I thought that this feeling of contentment and pleasure that only another human being's presence can bring is my inspiration for this week. Even if the week is almost over, I want you guys to know about this inspiration of mine. Thoughts on touch and the feeling of love through the presence of another.

Song of the Day: Breakeven by The Script (Covers)

Hey there!

I was browsing through Facebook and I happen to come across some video covers of the song, Breakeven by The Script, and I decided that it should be in my blog as my song of the day. I couldn't decide which one I like the best but I figured that you guys won't mind too much if I do post more than one video here in my blog or whatever. I hope you guys like this song and actually, I have a deeper meaning as to why I chose this song. I think I'll tell it to you guys after the 2 videos. :)

KMovie: Wedding Dress

The other day I was supposed to go to a general assembly for my organization, ESA (European Studies Association), but I lost track of time and ended up not going out at all. In my free time I saw around 3-4 Korean movies in YouTube. I know, I know. I sound like I have no life but the internet and all of its glory but I do like watching KMovies. They're cute, funny and very entertaining. So, I was watching this KDrama movie entitled Wedding Dress. I thought that it was a romantic comedy type of movie, which Korean movies are very famous for, but it wasn't. I was totally deceived by the look of the movie and the characters in it. Let me tell you why...

Asian Appreciation

Anyeooong!

I have been preoccupied for the past few days and I can't say that I'm preoccupied with something important, actually it is pretty mindless. I've been watching Korean movies last week and it kind of ventured out into the whole Asian spectrum of movies. I never really expected to like them as much as I do now and it was something different from the whole Western type of movies. Even if the plots were almost cliche-ish, it was interesting and addicting. I'm more into the romantic comedy types and maybe the dramas a bit but I'm not that into horror/suspense type of movies. My heart just can't take much of the suspense and I tend to get really bad nightmares from them. So, I stick with the funny and kilig movies. I think it's because I am a sort of hopeless romantic and I tend to visualize how my love life would unfold.

I am really sorry about not blogging these past few days. I just can't help but watch Asian movies. It's quite addicting. I know, It isn't the right time to be preoccupied with such things but I just can't help it. I got hooked. Anyways, I'm gonna show you guys some of the movies that I watched in a span of 2 weeks. Truth be told, I watch 3-4 movies a day since my addiction to Asian movies started. Hahaha! So, I watched a lot of movies the past few weeks and I'm trying to stop myself from watching series since that'll be more addicting and not to mention harder to stop or pause for a moment to resume normal life.

Backlogs, Backlogs, More Backlogs and A Happy New Year

Anyeooong!

With that opening you guys should know what I've been doing for the past few days that I haven't posted. I know, it's a lame excuse to not blog but I really can't help myself. I got hooked to Korean Movies and I've been watching them for almost a week now. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing but, yeah. I've been very preoccupied. Anyway, I'm about to post some reviews on the movies that I have watched and it's a lot since I do 3-4 Korean movies a day these past few days. Maybe I'll even post some of the trips I've went to. Nothing major really, just fun trips to an Indian buffet and to Laguna.

So, I'll end this post here. It's really just a quick blog just to let you guys know that I'm still alive and kicking. Hahaha! Ohh! And I might even do a few celebrity crush here and there as well. :) Also,
KUNG HEI FAT CHOI EVERYONE!

Song of the Day: Tiny Vessels by Death Cab for Cutie


I think I am in a mellow mode right now. I've been listening to this song for quite a while and it speaks to me. It says what my heart is silently saying. It's mean, harsh and heartbreaking but it's what I feel. I feel like there's no more space in my heart for that person anymore. I've let him go because I've freed myself from everything we had. I no longer care anymore and as sad as it may be, I feel nothing. All I have is contempt and I don't want our relationship anymore. Weird? Maybe. I just don't want you anymore. I don't want us.

Celebrity Crush: Emma Stone


As you guys all know, The Golden Globes is done and I've shown you guys my favorite red carpet looks. I then realized that I really like this one celebrity. Sure, I've said before to myself that she looks gorgeous or that she's lovely but never really anything serious but now... Now, I'm really proud to say that I have a celebrity crush on Emma Stone.

Golden Globes 2012


The Golden Globes is done. Although I haven't watched it in full because I am only interested on who wore what, the pops and flops and just the general silhouette of the gowns that the celebrities have worn. I may not imitate their looks but I am very inspired by how they look. Believe it or not, I do love fashion. I can't say that it loves me though. Anyway, here are some of my favorite looks in the red carpet!

Moon Child

I raise my head and watch the night unfold its mystery
Every burning star dazzles, blinds and amuses me
The dashing round moon seems to overlook thy Earth
And yet it seems to grow bigger and bigger and bigger.

I am but a child of the moon but it still frightens me
With its Cheshire cat like smiles once in a while
And sometimes its absence on some frightful nights.
I am nothing but a scared child, a scared moon child.

For The Kids 2012

Tomorrow will be a busy day for me. I'll be volunteering in this event, For The Kids 2012. I'll be making a special child feel normal and happy for a day. This is actually a yearly event that is organized by COSCA, one of the offices in my school and it aims to help special children feel like they're no different from normal kids. We basically play with them and just be with them on this day. It's a sort of special Olympics and we try our best to make the children feel normal.

I've been to FTK 2011 and tomorrow will be my 2nd year in FTK. It's sad that I didn't start earlier in my school life with extra-curricular activities like this. I'm trying my best to be more active this year and I do hope that I can maintain that frame of mind 'till I graduate. Anyway, I just want to invite the DLSU community that is reading this blog, if you are reading it, to come and join us make these kids feel at home and happy. It's only for a day that we get to experience the simplicity in life that can only be found in simple minds.

I'll end this post here because I have to wake up in early tomorrow for the call time is 6am, I think. Oh! And the event will be held at La Salle Greenhills' field. The children are expected to arrive at around 6:30am or 7:00am. I just hope that I'll wake up and be there in time. So, good night or good morning or just... GREETINGS! Hahaha! I'm out. :)

Inspiration Trunk: Freedom

Living in a society where you are judged by what you wear, what your color is and what affiliations you have it is sometimes hard to break through the norms and let your true colors shine. It is so hard to become the person you think you are and want to be when society shackles you to certain stereotypes and bind you with their expectations. No one is immune to this binding of souls but there are those who break away and unbind themselves. The beautiful ones, the truly beautiful ones who live their lives the way they want to live and not letting others make decisions for them.

Evanescence Live in Manila!


Being a television addict is something that I find very beneficial to me, even if I do procrastinate a lot when I am in front of the telly but whatever. You might ask what's the correlation of the photo above from my first sentence, well... I just found out that the band, Evanescence, will be having a concert here in the Philippines! I am thrilled and also very sad because of two reasons. (1) I'm broke as fuck and (2) I love Evanescence! And because I love you guys, I'm sharing it to you! Hahaha! So, here are the details:

Our Status Ala Incubus



One thing I've learned from a previous relationship was to never promise anything. I regretted every promise that I've said and not fulfilled. I don't think I'll ever fulfill those promises anymore because I've changed my mind and maybe my heart as well. I want other things in life and some of those things can't happen with my ex-boyfriend. I don't regret loving him but I don't regret not loving him as much as before also. I might sound mean and harsh but I jut don't see a future with him anymore.



Love might hurt us and we might be crushed at one point in our lives but we must never blame love for our pain. We suffer because there is the lack of love. We find mistakes, see shortcomings and feel discontent when we don't love someone or anything anymore. Even if love does hurt us time and time again, it does give us our most beautiful memories and feelings that no other type of human interaction can bring. Never be afraid to love and love again until you'll find that person who you'll love infinitely and he will love you back.



Never be afraid to meet new people and let go of those you've met. I think my life has nearly begun and it still has a long way to go. There is no point in holding on to people that you do not want to be with or don't want to be with you in the long run. Never be afraid to let go when you're no longer happy but never let go if you haven't fought the battle of holding on. You can only let go when you've had enough and you think you deserve someone better. I think that's the reason why I've let go and in the process of moving on. I don't see myself with that person anymore and it was time to say good bye whether he wanted to or not.



Sometimes I get lonely, I admit it but never will I ever think of doing the things that I did with him ever again. I no longer want the lies, the alibis and the sick petty fights. I grew tired and bored of loving someone that I can't have a future with. As they say, resistance is futile. I let go because I don't want to be miserable even if that means I'd be miserable with him. I might wish sometimes that he was here with me right now but I won't give in because I'm not lonely anymore. I'm not naive anymore. I've grown up and it sucks that he still hasn't. No matter what he says, to me he'll forever be that anarchistic punk.



So, pardon me. Pardon me for breaking you further and leaving you behind but I can't be with you anymore. I've edited and strike through some words while making this post because I know this hurts you more and you can't let go. But I need to move on and live my life the way I want it, and that means it's living life without you. Please don't be stubborn and just let go. I'm not the same person anymore. The person you love 3 years ago loves you but the person you're seeing now no longer does. Hate me if you want or can, but I'll never go back.

-------------------------------
This is a video/song compilation of my current love life. In a way it is also my letter or parting words to my ex-boyfriend. I'm really sorry guys if you had to see this. I just had to let it out and I think this is something enjoyable to you guys as well. I hope you liked the videos, I love Incubus and the rawness of these videos so... Yeah. Enjoy! :)

Ohh Happy Days!

I posted earlier my little food trip to Maginhawa street and so, I'll be posting my look for that trip. I actually planned what I'll be wearing for the food trip and you'll know later on why I wore what I wore and the reasoning behind it.




What I wore:
Quilt Patchwork Dress from The Ukay Queen
New Look Patent Leather Bag from Ukay Alalay
Gold Australian Flats from Landmark, Trinoma
Black Tights from Genevive Gozum, SM North Edsa




So, here's the reason why I wore a loose dress with tights. I thought that if we were going out on a food trip I needed an outfit that wouldn't make me look fat or fatter as time goes by. The solution that I thought of was to wear a dress that was loose so that my stomach won't be that noticed and I partnered it with some tights to prevent my underwear to be exposed. Then, I thought about how bland my outfit looks because all of my clothes were black, so I thought of wearing a gold flats for comfort and for a dash of color.

I think that's it. I hope you guys liked my outfit and please don't forget to hype it in Lookbook! :)

Travelling Foodie: From Maginhawa Street to Katipunan Ave.

Hello lovely readers!

I have been very busy the past few days because I was out with some of me and my mother's friends. Yes, we do have friends together. And as some of you might know, I am also busy with my school life hence the lack of more personal post. But I'm free today so I'll be blogging about my Maginhawa St to Katipunan Ave. food trip with me and my mom's friends. If you guys don't know where Maginhawa St is, it is located in UP Teachers Village, Quezon City. It is famous for its delicious food places and an ambiance that only the UP grounds can give. It's a good place to do a food trip and so, we went there with out friends. :)

Inspiration Trunk: Wild Child

Hello loves!

I haven't posted yesterday about the food trip in Maginhawa St. because I was feeling a tad under the weather AKA I was lazy. I got sucked in by the 9gag world. It was mind numbing. I couldn't even process what was happening in my life. I wasn't supposed to post anything today because I have recently watched Sherlock's new episode, The Hound of Baskerville and it was awesome that my mind is still fan girling up to now. Anyway, I decided that I should just do an inspiration post for you guys. :)

Quick Blog: Maginhawa Street Food Trip

Hello loves!

This is just a quick blog because I am tired and I have school tomorrow. I'll just update tomorrow when I have the time and energy. Anyway, we went to Maginhawa street today in Teachers Village, QC and let me tell you guys... IT WAS AWESOME! I'm a little bit "food drunk" right now so I have to apologize if I may sound overly excited or even incomprehensible. We've been to a total of 5 food places around the UP Teachers Village-Katipunan area and we were bloated! I am super happy today, my cravings were satisfied. We ate things from pastas to bagnettes to burgers to non-sweetened ice creams. Let's just say it was a foodie heaven. Hahaha! I'll stop here and give you some of the photos. I'll just make a structured post tomorrow.

Rainy Days

Photo courtesy of Harnois75 of DeviantArt

The day is young but the sky is dark,
My mind is fluttering to the hills beyond.
I am dreaming of a place far and wide,
Where the sun shines and the clouds don't cry.

Cold it may be on this solitary room,
I am not afraid to watch the sky mourn.
For tomorrow or later the sun will shine
And my sadness will be gone.

And now as I hear the pitter patter on the roof,
My mind wanders again to my solitude.
I'll be dreaming of a place nice and warm
But until the sun comes, I am left undone.

SHOP FOR A CAUSE!

Look what had just been delivered today!

I can't believe that the bag I bought in Ukay Alalay has finally arrived! I have been waiting for this bag to be delivered since last year, Dec. 27, and now that it's here I'm so happy! Yes, yes. I know. Mababaw na kung mababaw, pero wapakels. Hahaha! I'm just really happy to have my bag and in a way, help the victims of typhoon Sendong.

For those of you who do not know, Ukay Alalay is an online shop made by Saab Magalona to help the victims of typhoon Sendong. She's selling pre-owned stuffs, mostly branded items, and 100% of the income will be donated to the victims of Sendong. I really suggest that instead of buying in other online shops that sell pre-owned stuffs why not shop in Ukay Alalay until the victims of the typhoon Sendong has recovered or if you've already bought an item... Why not buy more? They have brands like Zara, Topshop, Oxygen and a lot more. It's not exclusive to female buyers because they also have items for guys.


So what are you guys waiting for?
Check out Ukay Alalay, follow their twitter account for up-to-date updates of new items and
let's help the victims of typhoon Sendong with all our might!

College 101: Tip Number Nine

Hello there lovely!

First day of school has passed and I realized that I should have made a back-to-school tip for you guys. I was so busy and engrossed on the things that I needed to do and forgot about blogging for you guys, well it's more for me than for you but whatever. I thought long and hard on what could be a good tip or tricks for you guys and then it hit me.

MAKE LISTS AND NEVER FORGET THINGS AGAIN.

First Day of School

It's the first day of classes and I'm feeling the good vibes. I know someone in all of my classes and all I have is good vibes right now. Hopefully this will continue throughout the year specially this term. My professors in all of my classes for today are all wonderful and I think I'm going to enjoy my Monday/Thursday schedule. But, I have to be wary though, I can't be over-confident. I have a lot of things to work on and if I get side-tracked, I might be kicked out of school. No one wants that to happen right? That'll be such a shame for not only for me but also to my family. Oh the disappointment I'll bring! So, I really have to work hard and be a student not just a student.

My first class which was Great Works looked interesting. The professor was funny and the topics that we'll tackle is also interesting. We'll be talking about oppression in different great works of literature but we'll tackle it has a twist. We'll be reading literary pieces that makes use of animals as the characters of their stories. I don't know if we'll be tackling stories about animal oppression and animal rights or maybe we'll tackle the stories in a way that the animals become a representation of society. I find this quite curious. I just hope that I can be consistent until the end of the term and get good grades. Here are the books that we have to read by the end of this term:

WHAT'S IN MY BAG?


The 3rd term is officially starting in De La Salle University-Manila and I think I'm ready for it. I've already prepared my bag and arranged the things that I need to bring for the first day of school. I'm a bit apprehensive with my classes since this'll be my last chance to redeem myself. I need to get a grade of at least 2.5/4.0 in 3 of my classes and I hope that I can do it. I need to keep myself busy and get things done. Not to mention the fact that we are going to finish our thesis' first part this term as well. I really need to work double time so, I'm gonna say this now. I might not update as often as I usually update but I will try my best to do at least one post a week.


So, what is in my bag anyway? I have fewer things inside my bag now because it is the start of the term but I am expecting a lot of readings by next weeks or so. Right now, I'm content in having 3 of my most important things in my bag.


Although you can't see my planner, I made it that way because I will show it in a post later on this week or maybe today. I love the design of my planner and I can't wait to fill it up with deadlines and all that jazz as the year progresses. The book I'm reading as of the moment is Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. It's an informative book and I highly recommend that you guys read it. I think I'll also make a review on it, I think. And lastly, my journal/sketchbook where I put all of my thoughts in it just to pass time and to pass certain feelings. I've always found it soothing to have my feelings written in a peiece of paper and it makes me feel as if I'm letting the world know what I'm thinking and yet it's still safe within my grasp.

Next thing in my bag is some of my basic make-up necessities to make me look like a person and not a bruha as my aunt might say it. Hahaha! It's really basic and incomplete but it is something that I can't live without.


Bobby pins are a girl's bestfriend and elastic bands too. They're small, easy to use and with a lot of it you can make your hair like those of a goddess! Lipstick, of any color, is also something that I always keep on my bag. I like wearing red or reddish colored lipstick because it gives a dash of color to my face but it doesn't give me that fake look. It makes me look fresh and well, I just like it. No offence to those who like putting make up on their faces, I have nothing against you guys. I actually like putting make-up on but when it comes to regular days, I keep it down by just wearing lipstick. Another thing that I often use is clay doh, it looks like wax but it doesn't make your hair look unreal or sticky. It looks natural and you won't even notice that it's there but it keeps your hair, specially your bangs, in good condition.

Of course, any student needs their own set of pens and an alcohol. I don't know about you guys buy I use my alcohol a lot. It's something of a necessity now specially in a world that is no longer clean and natural. I don't want to get sick so I keep things clean, I think. Then there's my coin purse and my wallet. I use a coin purse in addition to my wallet because I don't want to pull my wallet every time I'm going to pay the fare when I'm commuting. It's a hard world out there and you need to be smart. I suggest you guys use a coin purse so that when someone snatches it, you still have money with you. Always have money kept in different places. It could be a life saver.

Bag, Stacks of things, Umbrella, Wallet, Coin Purse, Pens, Alcohol

So that's what's inside my bag. Oh, and you should also know that I always have an umbrella in my bag! You have to be practical! It's a must for commuting students! I repeat, it is a must! I will have to end this post here because I need to sleep. My mom and I will go to school tomorrow. I have class and I have to enroll as well and it'll be a busy day. So, goodbye for now dearest. I hope you liked my first "What's in my bag?" post. :)

PS. I would like to say thank you to my friend and constant critique, Airiz Parilla,
for telling me my grammatical errors in this post. Edited on January 5, 2012

Celebrity Crush: Benedict Cumberbatch


Do you guys see that fine man above? Yes? Do you recognize him? Yes? No?

Well, that my dear readers is Benedict Cumberbatch. He is currently playing the role of Sherlock Holmes in the hit British series, Sherlock, alongside Martin Freeman. There are a few things I love about him and I'm gonna tell you guys why I do love him. You may not agree with me, but I will still love this fine man here. Heehee!

Inspiration Trunk: Messy Hair


Hello lovely readers!

These past few days I've been having this urge to mess my hair up, curl it and just let it twist and turn in different ways. I've even tried doing different sides of my hair. I never really realized that having a messy hair is okay. I remember my mother saying to me that I should always brush my hair, tie it up or just brush it because I had wavy hair since I was a baby. However, last year I made a decision to have my hair relaxed making it straighter and to my opinion now, dull. I hate not having volume and that oompf in my hair. So, here I am sharing to you guys the beauty of messy hairstyles. Learn to love your hair no matter what type it is. Your hair is your crown glory, remember to always flaunt it! It's all about self-confidence. :)

Fashion Inspiration: Karen Gillan


2012 has come and we are set for a new and fantastic year. I thought, why not make a "Fashion Inspiration" post since it is the start of the year. And so, here I am making this post. I decided that since Billie Piper was the last Fashion Inspiration on my blog I'll make the next one connected to her. I thought long and hard on this one and decided that Karen Gillan or the daring Mrs. Rory Williams or the beautiful Amy Pond will be my next fashion inspiration. I chose Karen Gillan because of a lot of reason but mainly because she is the current companion of the Doctor in my favorite show, Doctor Who.

College 101: Tip Number Eight



If you're from my school, De La Salle University-Manila, then you'd probably know that we have a hell for an elevator in Andrew building. You would also probably know that the stairs might be the best option to use if you're in a hurry or late for your class. And when I saw this video, I instantly remembered that piece of DLSU that is just screaming "HELP! I'M IN AN AWKWARD SCENARIO!". So, I decided to put the video here and also give some advice on how to avoid awkward scenarios while waiting/during/after an elevator ride.

New Year, New Me

Hello friends!

The new year has come and we are now going to start afresh. We'll be leaving our woes, our troubles and our heartaches behind but we will not forget them. We'll be resolving the problems of yesterday and setting things straight. I want this new year to be a good one, not only for me but to all of you. I hope that you guys will make 2012 and all the following years (if we are still alive and not in a zombie apocalypse world that is) your year. I hope that you'll find people to share your life, experiences that will forever scar you and love that will never grow old and part ways. I know, I know. I sound like a godmother but I really do wish you guys a happy new year ahead. I love you all and thank you for following, glancing and just being here in my blog.
