Young Blood

I am finally back after a month’s hiatus! I apologize for being such an irresponsible, neglecting “blogger” I promise to try my best to make it up to you on this post.

So.. long story short, I was in Cebu for a month to attend some important stuff at the same time “vacationing” for summer. I am just going to summarize the highlighted events of my vacay and I will try to make separate posts of it. For now, I’m just gonna share a couple of photos.

The main reason why I went to Cebu is to process my transcript of records because I am going to transfer to another school to finish my nursing course. Yup! I am finally and fully decided. I need a diploma already to get on with life.

then…….. I was there to attend the hunger games’ premiere πŸ™‚ I was super excited, I’ve spammed my fb and twitter about it for two weeks. HAHA

While I was on the plane, I was surprised to find a magazine that featured THG! HAHA well it was mainly about Jennifer Lawrence and her role as Katniss Everdeen.. but whatever.. still THG related HAHA

the night on that day, we attended the last full show and wore our customized shirts πŸ™‚ On the right is my cousin, Bea and that Team Peeta shirt of hers glowed inside the cinema. She used that special glow in the dark glue for tees. Forgive us, that was the only fan mode day we had. HAHA

We occupied the whole “L” row and we were as usual the noisiest. The people behind us must have been very annoyed HAHAHA We got the best seats because we, well, my awesome cousin Kyle reserved it a month before. πŸ™‚

The next day, I met up with my lovie Essa and a couple of my CDU friends to watch Anne Curtis-Smith’s No Other Concert at Waterfront. I’m sorry I couldn’t give you teaser pics. My brilliant mind forgot to bring my cousin’s DSLR and my point-and-shoot camera has no memory card. Genius, I know. *facepalm* All I had was my cybershot phone and it was no hope. Β And that ticket photo isn’t mine either. HAHA grabbed it from Essa’s twitter.
The after party was spent in Alchology with my cousins (sorry!the photos are kind of private :D)

On April Fool’s Day, my cousin had visitors from MNL and we gladly took them for some kilid-kilid shots at Streetlow then to Mountain View.
(L-R: Hydra, LA. Shobe, and my cousin Kyle)

Those are the only “decent” pics I could find. Everything was either blurred (from playing German game and laughing too much) or too dark (because we couldn’t we figure out the SLR’s freaking flash and we’re having too much fun to experiment)

Then came the Holy Week. My cousins and I had anΒ impromptuΒ decision to go to the beach at 2 in the afternoon. HAHA It was so hot in the house and we were so bored and we just needed some sun, sand, and Β the ocean.

We even brought home a pet jelly fish! But it died without even a name 😦 huhu

Biyernes Santo is family day πŸ™‚ Visita Iglesia to seven churches and then lunch at Co Jordan.

We finished the 14 stations of the cross, had seafood for lunch, and the place was just so peaceful. it was a very holy day πŸ™‚

Friday the 13th salubong. Beer pong with the wolfpack πŸ™‚ Girls vs. Boys

Friday the 13th nightout with the Wolfpack.Β 

This was actually my last nighout beforee heading back to Mindanao πŸ™‚

Mid April, I attended my cousin and lovie’s graduation! yaaay! πŸ™‚ Well, I wasn’t actually on the graduation ceremony because it was 7 in the morning and I was still sleeping. Went to their pinning which was held in the afternoon (that’s justifying their gala uniforms haha in case you’re wondering why they aren’t wearing togas)

Β That’s the last important event in my summer.Β My remaining days in Cebu were spent on satisfying cravings, playing scrabble or rummi with family, and then packing – loads of it.Β Sorted things that are to be shifted back home and stuff that I will include in my new room (yes I’m moving!!)

When I get back on May, it will be a Β whole new life. and when I say new, that includes EVERYTHING. Heartaches and heartbreaks left behind, mistakes were laughed at but will not be forgotten, old friends remain but ready to make new ones, and I guess it’s safe to say that I’m closer to where I’m supposed to be than yesterday.

BISOUS,

NICA ❀

We found love on double K’s birthday bash

November 19 was one of those times where me and my girlfriends step on the borderline and run free. That day, we celebrated the birthday of my lovey, Katherine Chua.

So why is my title “DOUBLE K’s birthday bash”?
Kat decided to celebrate it with one of her closest college friends, Kim Arcenas.

The invitation was at 9:30 pm, Apartelle de Arcenas.
My friends Garey and Karen (seen in the picture above) and I went to pick up Essa since she wasn’t able to wake up from duty/school. We were actually running late coz she still had her make-up done but we didn’t actually worry coz we all know the “Filipino time” πŸ™‚

Taahdaaah! We arrived at the venue without getting lost πŸ˜‰

Err.. yeah we were actually late but just in time for the celebrators to blow their candles πŸ™‚
Look at them with their matching Forever 21 dresses ❀

After blowing the candles, they went to each table to have pics taken with everyone πŸ™‚

more piccies! πŸ™‚

Gel-o vodka shots in different colors πŸ™‚

OUTFIT POSTS:

Garey πŸ™‚ follow her on twitter since she doesn’t have a blog: @Garey_me

Karen. πŸ™‚

styleswagger, Essa πŸ™‚

Yours truly πŸ™‚
as you can see, I was the only one who did not wear a bandage skirt and I had the SHORTEST heels haha. But it does not matter coz after we took these photos we changed our shoes to flats πŸ™‚

Thank you so much Kim and Kat for the wonderful and memorable party! We all know that we found love in a hopeless place that night ❀
That song got stuck in my head for a week haha.

A month’s delayed post about Halloween :)

It’s been such a craazy, craaaaaaaazy month! Relatives coming home from abroad, birthdays, me becoming an adult, and a lot more happened last November. But of course I’m gonna have to start with the Halloween πŸ™‚

My cousins and I have been planning to throw a private Halloween party at our Cebu apartment since this is all our first time to spend it outside the province.

And so.. the plan was pushed through! πŸ™‚
since the oldies were at home in Mindanao, everything in this party was out of labor of love.
We decorated the house, baked cupcakes, cooked pizza (even the dough was made from the scratch by my cousin), mixed drinks, and did the after care πŸ™‚
We even wore costumes to make it extra special πŸ™‚
and closest friends came over to celebrate with le famille.

About my costume, I have always wanted to try to be a pussycat and my inspiration is no other than Martine Cajucom. I had a problem finding cat’s ears coz I really wanted the ears that Martine wore. But I’ve no luck to find those and so my cousin did a DIY for me πŸ™‚

Even my tail was a disaster 😦 I only used a black belt for the sake of it HAHA

Wasn’t able to take a pic of the table with all the food because we were so hungry and the pizza is getting cold.

Me with Incredible lizard.. I mean HULK haha

With Amy Whinehouse and Jason slash Jabbawockee

The night went on perfectly and (miraculously) early so when we woke up, it was All Souls Day and my cousins and I went to Sto. Nino Cathedral to pray and light candles for our deceased loved ones– all buried in Mindanao.

After the Halloween, I already embraced the fact that November is my birth month πŸ˜‰

Nursing Gathering (?)

We had our annual Nursing Gathering at CICC last October 21. Our theme was VINTAGE and I kind of forgot about this event because I really thought this aint gonna push through since the sem’s almost over. Anyway, lesson learned. I came up with a really boring outfit. Some even wore a gown (eyes rolling) and most people had their hair and make-up done at the salon. I just went to my friend, Faith’s house and we got dolled up by the means of our own powers.

Met a couple of friends but very few pics (see, we didn’t even bother to bring cameras). We actually dint last that long coz we got bored and went back to Faith’s home.

What we did: cooked (uuyy Nica, cook daw HAHA) pancakes and watched Something Borrowed for the nth time. We went back to the gathering during twilight. fast forward to the after party……

Went to YOU and ZOO for a couple of drinks and we were Cinderellas for coming home at midnight HAHA it was fun though!
Never thought we’d end up our day with smiles on our face “YOU KNOW THAT IT DOESN’T MATTER AS LONG AS WE GOT EACH OTHER” was stuck in our heads for weeks! I love you guys! xx

Abduction aborted

Was scheduled for a movie date with lovie and Teine last Saturday because we wanna see Taylor Lautner‘s abs LOL
But since Teine was busy, I just went to lovie’s place and brought fraps and thinking maybe we could watch Abduction together.

FINALLY got to taste the sinful creme brulee frap at Starbucks. I was out of words. It was so yummy! Been wanting for this to happen ever since I found out their new drink.
I named our fraps Serena & Blair by the way HAHA!

So, movie nite turned out sleepover + ukay-ukay = MY KIND of weekend πŸ™‚
