What I Wore Last Week (Feb. 20 - Feb. 24)

Hey guys I hope you had a great weekend!

Well, I went home (in the province) that's why I wasn't able to upload outfit pics on WIWT for the past 3 days. It's my father's 62nd birth anniversary on the 24th. Two of my siblings didn't go home. It would've been nicer if they're there. I still had a blast though. I spent most of my time being a sales lady at our clothing store. Here's a pic:



Anyway, I am now the # 20 trending user. Hahaha! Oh well! Ü..

BTW, I just successfully pasted my WIWT widget here. It's at the bottom! Check it! Here's my status.

    What I Wore Last Week (Feb. 12 - Feb. 18)

    My outfits last week basically just consisted of dresses, comfy footwear, and my black square XOXO bag (which has become my super favorite). BO-R-I-N-G! I am in the morning shift, which starts at 5am so I don't really have time for some outfit-sprucing. Can you believe I literally run my way to work most of the time? Well, believe it coz I do. It's actually my only physical activity lately.

    Dresses rock. For me, they're the best investment. I mean, you can just wear it with chunky accessories and you got yourself a smokin' outfit. Plus, it's easy to move around in it!

    Anyway, my WIWT status is:

    Naya's Christening

    Hello everyone! How's your weekend? Mine's pretty busy and I am going to share it to you guys. Sometimes, I think that I probably share too much personal information on my blog. Oh hell! Ü

    So let me start with Naya Brielle Ybanez' christening held at San Roque Parish in Liloan Cebu City. Naya is my bestfriend Grasya's daughter. Now, I may not be good with kids but I take my resposibility as a godmother seriously. I am always here for you Naya! Welcome to the Christian world!

    The Seminar.  No, I don't smoke.

    At the church - with the other godmothers and godfathers who're my friends as well.


    *with th cuddliest, Rich*  *I had Naya dance "Itik-itik*

    Naya Brielle Ybanez
    Have a great week ahead guys! xxx

    To Speak Or Not To Speak

    My friend once jokingly told me to sometimes keep my opinions to myself because it would get me killed.We were actually just talking about a pair of shoes worn by someone at that time and in retrospect, it's funny but thinking about it now, she might be right.


     I am a very opinionated person and sometimes, people get hurt in the process. I don't do it to hurt others. I am just being honest. I am a believer of the "honesty is the best policy" mantra. I think that if everybody's only honest and not get offended by people who are honest, the world be a much better place to live.

    My father was murdered and he's like me, or I'm like him. He has principles and always expresses his honest opinions. I guess that's why people love him. I guess that's why bad people hate him. Could his being like that be the reason for his murder? Only God knows but it'd be sad if it was.

    So my question is, at which point should a person stop speaking her/his mind? Happy weekend guys! xxx

    My Valentine Story



    "I used to have a wish
    One day I'd feel like this
    Now I know love exists
    Standing right next to me.."

    Well, he's not exactly standing right next to me but yes, now I know love exists. And I didn't even ask God for it. After constantly falling out of love in my previous relationships, I asked God not to send/give me someone if he's not "it". I don't want another failed emotional investment.

    For 4 years, everybody desperately wanted me to settle down (being that I'm almost 30!). Even my Ate (elder sister) gave my phone number to her colleague/friend she'd like me to get together with. I went on dates set up by my friends. There weren't any sparks whatsoever. And when we go out during weekends and somebody asks for my number, they'd scold me because I can't memorize it. I don't text. I don't even go online for chatting and stuff like that. In other words, I didn't do anything to have a boyfriend. I just let time pass, I lived my life just being with my family, buying shoes, travelling with my friends, and eating! I enrolled for drum lessons and briefly MMA (shoutout to YawYan Ardigma warriors!) which I sucked big time. I was having a blast! I thought, God will give me someone when I'm ready and if He thinks I need/deserve to have one. So I was waiting but wasn't really waiting, you know what I mean?
    Here's almost all the things I did for 4 years of being
    single!waiting isn't bad at all!

    For 4 years, the one thing I've had that's closest to love is my affair with Rafael Nadal. But I guess that doesn't count. Ü.. January of 2012, I told myself I will never be in a relationship, I'd be single forever.  Plus, stories of failed relationships and husbands cheating didn't help. I began planning for my future being alone. I planned to buy a small house and be in a neighborhood where my friends live.
    
    See? Love affair! hahaha! Thanks to Marie Deltan Galeos for the "birthday" pic.

    And then, May 18, 2012 happened. I went online for like 5 seconds per my mother's request to check if my uncle was, my old neighbor's name popped up and I lazily replied to his questions. After 3 days I began having a good time and I gave him my number. May 21, 2012, with too much persuasion from him, I said "let's do this" and then viola, I got myself a boyfriend, just like that! For me, it was just a game. I thought to myself, he's in UAE, there's no way it could become serious and there's no way I'd fall in love! I mean, I haven't seen the man for more than 10 years, I don't know what has become of him. I wrote about it here. IT. WAS. CRAZY.
    First time we saw each other in more than 10 years! Can you believe I didn't have an outfit planned that day? Gosh! Anyway, when I saw him, I thought to myself, "nigwapo lagi ning pahak!'. Ha-ha! I was so nervous I could barely look at him in the eye. He, on the other hand, was sweating all over. And then I asked him point blank if he still wants me after actually seeing me and he said, looking at me in the eye, "OO". Yes!
    my love reminding me to always put plastic in the trash bin* me writing him letters - i have so much feelings! love is indeed overwhelming! Haha! *foot massage, anyone? He is the best

    I never thought that the person I carelessly said "yes" or in my case "let's do this" to would be the one who'll teach me more lessons than anyone ever did. The more I get to know him, the more I'm in awe of him. He is someone I respect because he's so great. He is so strong yet, has a fragile and kind soul. He loves like no other. I am so proud of what he has become! I AM ONE PROUD LOVER!
    
    Our relationship isn't perfect, in fact, we used to fight a lot, like everyday. Most (if not all) of the time I'm the stubborn one and he deals with it patiently, but then when he goes to his "maldito" mode, I just go silent. Ha-ha! We are two very different people. He sees things this way, I see it the other way. Before, it got me into thinking that our having very different personalities would become a problem in the future  but now I look at it as an opportunity to learn things on the other side of the fence. I like it when we discuss our differences. I guess as long as we're able to listen to and understand each other, everything's going to be ok. I know it's going to be hard, especially now that he's back to UAE, we have a long way to go!

     How we come to this, what we are right now, is really beyond me. More than I ever, I am amazed at how God does His magic. I guess it's true what they say, true love comes to those who wait. I waited, and there he came. Life is indeed full of surprises. I AM IN LOVE and the best part of it is that the person I love loves me back. Yahoo!


     To Bab, you are God's gift to me. Thank you for loving me despite my flaws. I know I can be a handful sometimes especially when I ask questions - some of them are so stupid I'm actually always shy to ask them believe it or not but I still ask anyway. Ha-ha! I ask them because I want to know what you think. Please be more patient! And you know that I LOVE YOU TOO and I am always here for you. Only God knows what the future will bring, but He also knows that I want mine to be with you. Here's hoping He'll approve and I think He will (winks). I have faith in you. I have faith in us. Apir! Ü


    Happy Valentine's day to you guys! I hope you get all your hearts' desires! xxx

    My Take On Ricky Lo's Interview With Anne Hathaway

    I just knew about it like an hour ago. I read the whole interview text and here's what I have to say.

    I agree to what other people are saying, that Ricky Lo could've asked questions about the whole movie production and not about the actress' weight loss and stuff like that. I think that, him asking those types of questions is corny. I myself would be constantly rolling my eyes in my thoughts.

    Having said  all of that, I think that Anne Hathaway could've been nicer. I WOULD BE! If she's not in the mood for the interview, she could've just acted that she was. She's an actress after all! Besides, being tired or being not in the mood is not an excuse not to be nice. We always have to be, regardless of who we're talking to and what mood we're in. I'm all to being true to oneself and to what one is feeling but this is one of those rare moments when one needs to pretend to be nice. So now I'm thinking, maybe Anne Hathaway's really a bitch. What do you think?

    Here's the vid:

    Dumaguete Weekend

    My love left for UAE last weekend. :( I went to Manila to be with him (we took pics but they're in his phone) for a few hours. His flight was at around 5 pm so from there, I went straight to my second favorite place in my country, Dumaguete City. I was sad and I missed him and I needed to be with a family and to be in a place close to home. Kab, who's with me in Cebu was busy with work so I went to my youngest brother, Mac - my almost twin.

    There we ate, talked, drank, watched UFC 156, and walked around the city. I'm not sure I did the right thing to mend my misery though, because now I miss both my love and my brother! Tsk. Anyway, here are pics I took:

    I arrived and immediately went to the famous Sans Rival Bistro. It's their 2nd and latest branch and it's just by the boulevard so the view's fantastic. I had 2 cakes and that 1-million calorie iced coffee frap.

    My brother only had water! Ha-ha! He had coffee bitaw! He doesn't like sweets.

    
    Here we were at Hayahay. It used to be our party place when I was in college (that's like 10 years ago!). The place's still hopping and I saw few familiar faces. Two bands played. The first one's very original. Their genre's reggae rock - the vocalist is so cool! The second band's grunge/rock/rapmetal. Only the last 3 songs were rockin' - not a fan. Apparently their last gig there.
    
    Hayahay's everything-on-it pizza! It's my fave. Can you believe my brother and I ate all 12 inches of it? Their hot sauce is like no other.
    
    Cold breezy aftie. Again at Sans Rival Bistro. I had my brother wore my sunnies.

    And I wore his sunnies. I was waiting for my cakes.

    This is our view. See? You can't blame me for not wanting to go back to Cebu.

    The place is named after this cake, sans rival. It's their specialty obviously. It's superb! My brother actually thought that Sans Rival's the name of the owner! Silly him!

    Balot, anyone? Manang, the vendor, took this pic. There were 2 of these, the other one's way worse! Ü

    The famous Boulevard (of broken and drunken dreams!).

    What we ate at the Kabayoan - utok sa baboy (pig brain - which is one of our favest), calderetang kanding, kawali, and sinugbang baboy

    Last hurrah before going back to Cebu, again at Sans Rival. This time, we went to their original branch. I LOVE CAKES!

    Again, my brother only had coffee.
    'Til next time! xxx
