H A U L : August 2014 

It has been a year, I think, when I did a haul. Well, I don’t have money all the time and maybe I was really lazy to blog it. Anyway, to add some ‘fashion’ feeling in my blog, I’m going to post a mini haul though, this is not really for fashion and it’s already September and this is an August Haul..

First item, a shirt from Artwork. It says “things that confuse you might amuse you ate the same time”. Bought it because I like the line (what? :D) and it was on sale so why not? 2nd item is my (FIRST!) Jansport bag that has a design of galaxy and has rainbow colors. I bought it from my cousin who is selling jansport bags for almost 50% off. It has tags and the piece that’s why I know it’s original. 3rd item is Bon which is a wafer (?) I don’t know how to explain it but I bought it from Daiso Japan Store for a cheap price. My new found favorite. 💕 The last item is a floral dress from Bread n Butter. I bought it for our acquaintance party that happened on the first week of September. So yeah, that’s all! I got all these things for cheap prices and I don’t care if it isn’t branded because yolo.


09062014: Kawaii In Manila 2 {3/3}

Tbh, one of the reasons I went to the convention is to see some of my fave bloggers. Yep. I’m serious. At first, I have hesitations to talk to them and ask for a picture with them because….I’m shy. I was just looking at them and thinking if I’m going to approach them. But then, I remembered that they were one of the reasons why I attended the convention! Btw, (up and down) (left side) I’m with ate Kaila and Celina and on the right side, I’m with Abbey Sy and Guen. So yeah…I did it and..gahhhh whenever I remember it, I’m smiling because it is a huge step for me (idk where but the feeling, urgh) and it’s in my bucketlist! So, one check again!

Well, let’s go back to my story. I didn’t catch her name, but she painted in the stage for only 2 hours but her work is gahhh👌 It’s so ‘woahh’ and cute that you want to hang it on your wall. And the painter is really pretty. Anyway, it was followed by the Kawaii Fashion Show. Every collection has its own theme and very different to each other. You can choose your style, haha!

After that, I went home because it was 3 something and my mom doesn’t know that I went to Makati to attend this. I just don’t want to be caught and I was just making sure that’s why I went home early. But all in all, I enjoyed the Kawaii in Manila 2 even I went alone (you guys can cry for me). So yeah, this is the first convention I attended and I had fun. :)

09062014: Kawaii In Manila 2 {2/3}

Saw some of the attendees were wearing cute outfits while they were looking at the booths. They were really cute so I asked them if I can took a photo of them and they said..yes (that’s why I have photos right now waha). Imagine guys, you can see almost everyone around you is wearing a kawaii outfit…it was like “maybe this isn’t my world, but I want to stay because I feel wonderful” yep. Anyway, there was also an exhibit inside where the artists showed how they see kawaii through painting. Those are the 3 paintings I really like especially the painting that Detective Conan is in. (fangirl jump)

09062014: Kawaii In Manila 2 {1/3}

Last September 6, the first Philippine kawaii convention happened in Whitespace Manila! So this will be my first post over three about the convention. This was the first convention I attended that’s why I took a lot of photos! So yeah, let’s begin.

I was the 97th when I bought a ticket and ate Kaila posted on her facebook that the first 500 that will enter will receive a loot bag so I received a loot bag (cute design!!) where you can put the things you bought inside the convention. There are also free ice cream and cotton candy *squeals* I love the cotton candy, really. When I went inside, there are booths that sell affordable kawaii items like accessories, make up (!!!), shirts and many more! I bought only a few items because I really have no money. (so sad) Anyway, while we, customer/attendees were waiting for the program to start, Miss Reese Lansangan sang a song in the stage so we won’t be bored! She’s really pretty, has a great voice and I love her outfit!! I want to have a picture with her but I’m too shy.

Anyway, wait for more posts about my Kawaii in Manila 2 experience!

Day 4 of Bicol Trip: 08242014 

From Caramoan, we went back to my aunt’s at 8 in the morning. The orginal plan was we are going to a fiesta but we, my cousins and I, don’t want to come with them and we want to go somewhere. So the oldies went to the fiesta and us, we decided to go to CWC. We went there around 1 pm.

My plan was I was just going to swim in the swimming pool there because I am scared of the boarding blablas but my cousins told me I should try it because they’re going to try it (ikr). So yeah, I tried it. AND IT WAS AWESOME. We tried the wakeboarding but the one that is only for the beginners because…we are beginners haha. At my 3rd attempt of wakeboarding, I did it! But I only made it to the middle but I don’t care. I still feel amazing. We tried the kneeboarding also and it was easier than the wakeboarding. We did the kneeboarding in the ‘professional’ area where there are stages for tricks but only for the experts. I can’t control the one I’m holding so accidentally, I went to one of the stages and boom. The lifeguard told me that I shouldn’t do that again because it was dangerous. And I was like, “oh. dangerous. sorry.” but I still feel awesome haha bucketlist check

After that, we stopped and had a snack. Our arms were aching so we just swam and waited for my cous and her girlfriend. But it started raining hard with thunder so we went inside the lobby(?) and waited a tricycle then we went home.

Attended a mass and I fixed my things because tomorrow morning, we’re going home. The plan that night is we ‘re going to drink but I fell asleep early because I was really tired but they still did it anyway so yeah :)

5th Day: August 25 2014: to Manila »»>

Day 3 of Bicol Trip: 08232014 

Oldies woke us early (around 4, I think) because we need to be at the terminal(?) early so we can go with the first trip. After the preparation and praying the rosary, we went to the terminal. (1 hour (not sure though bc I fell asleep)) but unfortunately, the boat already sailed so we need to wait for the second trip. It was 9 am already when we sailed. We rode a boat for 2 hours to reach the Caramoan island then we went straight to the hotel. It was not really a ‘hotel’, more like a house but they call it hotel…so yeah.

We rode a tricycle. We reached a beach where we waited there our boat we’re going to use for the island hopping. Then the boat came and we started our Island hopping. It was really hot but I don’t care because all the boat riding blabla didn’t fancy me but it was all worth it. I mean, the view!! On the 2nd island, we ate there our lunch. So yeah, island hopping, swimming, chatting with them. We also went to the island where the ‘Survivor’ of i-can’t-remember-the-name country. There are also myths about the other islands so if you’re going to do the island hopping, have a research first! Anyway, all in all, we have visited 5 islands!

When we reached the land, it was already dark. We went to the hotel and we ate and washed. Then my cousins and I talked about some things about life (ha!) and then after a while, we fell asleep. Yep, dead tired.

Day 2 of Bicol Trip: 08222014 

We all woke up early because we’re going to attend a mass in Penafrancia because that’s the real reason why we went to Bicol.To visit the Church. Its feast will be on second week of September but we can’t go there on Sept because oldies have work, we have classes and there are no holidays so yeah..My mom and I went to Nabua first to do some ukay ukay (hehe). After 2 hours, we met my cousins and aunts at the Our Lady of Basilica and attended a mass.

After the mass, we went straight to the Panicguason Hotspring Resort. I really liked it there! Sulfuric hot springs or even just hot springs has a lot of benefits. They say it gives help in some skin diseases, heart problems, metabolism blabla and many more. So thumbs up! It’s hard to go there because of its up-down roads (you get me? haha) but it’s worth it. We stayed until 7 pm and went home after.

Day 1 of Bicol Trip: 08212014 

Started traveling at 1:30 in the morning. It’s almost 12 nn when we reached Naga City (Camarines Sur) and headed to my aunt’s to eat lunch and to rest for a while.

After 2 hours, we went to Coquit Beach Resort in Balatan to try the beach there. (lol of course) but it started raining hard. We were thinking of just playing in the rain. Fortunately, it became like a drizzle so we continued our plan. We have an aunt there that has like connections so we didn’t need to pay for anything. At first, I don’t want to go even near the beach because of something I learned in school (whaat). But they told me that I was already there, why not just enjoy the beach. I took pictures first and then I left it to swim. But I did not really swim, swim. I was just near the shore, sat there, and pretending I’m a mermaid (disney influences) and asked them to give me a wonderful stone (LOL). Ate Diane gave me a stone that has black and white on it and I think it’s cool so I told them that she won the bring me contest hahaha.

After, we headed to my aunt’s in Tapayas because it’s just on the way. Of course, oldies gone talking while us, played the 4 pics 1 word. We were playing that app in every gadgets (we have four). We ate there our dinner and rest for a while.

It was already dark when we visited our other aunt in Calauag, Naga City. We were planning to go to a bar but we were really tired. Our aunt gave us a wine (erk don’t like the taste) and told us that we should just stay. When it was already midnight, we went to our aunt in Pili and we slept there.

082012014: Birthday

Turned 17 this day! Hooray! I did not really expected my blockmates to have a surprise party (not really a party , party) for me. I saw they were busier..than ever but I just shrugged off the idea that they were preparing something for me because that time, we were also busy doing our project in Filipino. During our break, while I was eating, they called me and told me to look at the board and then boom! I saw a pink (!!) cartolina with my name on it. I’m so dumb not to see the cartolina when I entered the classroom. Ugh haha. Then while we were waiting for our prof, suddenly, everyone started singing the birthday song then when I turned around, I saw my tropapips (boys haha) and kuya bon holding a cupcake with a lighted candle on it. I didn’t know what I should do that time. (panic, I guess) So they told me to make a wish and blow the candle and so I did.

I had and still having hard times in adjusting in college blablas that I want to change course and school. But after what they did to me, I think I don’t want to change my school anymore and leave them. There’s something like a pinch(?) in my heart a while ago. So yeah, thank you to my blockmates! Unicorns everywhere x

1. Paper Towns by John Green ★★★★★

  • Margo always loved mysteries. And in everything that came afterward, I could never stop thinking that maybe she loved mysteries so much that she became one.
  • The town was paper, but the memories were not.
  • It’s so hard to leave-until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.
  • The pleasure isn’t in doing the thing; the pleasure is in planning it.

2. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell ★★★✯✯

  • You always ask that. Why. Like there’s an answer for everything. Not everybody has your life, you know, or your family. In your life, things happen for reasons. People make sense. But that’s not my life.
  • Nothing before you counts. And I can’t even imagine an after.

3. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han ★★★★

  • It was over before I even had a chance.
  • They’re MFEO. Made for each other.
  • If you were mine, I would never have broken up with you, not in a million years.

4. Where She Went by Gayle Forman ★★★★

  •  But still, I find the need to remind myself of the temporariness of a day, to reassure myself that I got through yesterday, I’ll get through today.
  • But there are some things you can’t control, no matter how hard you try.
  • Everyone has hardship in their life. Everyone has pain.
  • Quitting’s not hard. Deciding to quit is hard. Once you make that mental leap, the rest is easy.
