Just A Feeling

current favorite song.

Because Payphone is too mainstream and Just a feeling is so underrated :p

she cries, “This is more than goodbye. When I look into your eyes, you’re not even there”

Adam Levine’s voice…. UGH. Makes me wanna surgically remove my tear ducts :'(((( and the song is just TOO SAD 😦
Thank you Anne V for breaking his heart, inspiring him to create songs like this.. :p

But it was love and it’s an ache I still remember

If you sang while reading my title, then I guess you know the song “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye feat. Kimbra 🙂

That song pretty much sums up my life (love life if you wanna call it like that) right about now. Will tone down a little bit on the fashion hype on this blog.  I think I am in the mood to get mellow just for tonight. (Eeeeeek did I sound uber cheesy??)

Anyway, it’s finally a month (or more) since I ended up a relationship I thought that would last. UGH. I sounded cheesy again HAHA but I couldn’t think of  how else to say it :p

This time though, I guess it’s more than goodbye. I know my friends won’t believe this (even until now) because they’ve been used to the on-off relationship I had with this guy. And since it was long distance, they would assume that everything would be okay once we see each other again. At least that was before. Right now, turning back or insisting to stay would only mean no light at the end of the tunnel. eff Gotye. You are so damn right.

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness.

Maybe……. it’s true what they say.. Some people just wake up one day and all their feelings for someone are suddenly gone. I wouldn’t call it “falling out of love” it’s not like that..  The love is still there.. kind of.. It’s just that, it’s not the same anymore. As Adam Levine would put it in his song,

I know it’s hard to remember the people we used to be.
It’s even harder to picture, that you’re not here next to me.

I suddenly remember this..

Only, I WAS 16 when I was planning about “someday.” 😉

Oh by the way, for those of you who don’t know, Nathan Scott is the writer of the famous tv series, One Tree Hill.

After a month, I’ve only talked about this tonight and 3 of my friends. Also, I stumbled upon this perfect photo on Tumblr:

(sorry I couldn’t give credits 😦 there was nothing indicated. but whoever made this, I’m sorry I had to use your photo without your permission.)

CLOSURE maybe that’s all I need. But since “you” have finally decided to put me behind without even saying goodbye, then I guess there’s nothing more I could do about that.

Then it got me thinking again.. what if……

Then that person you know becomes that person you KNEW.
That’s how it usually goes, right?

I painfully admit…….

Loneliness stealthily creeps in whenever I see a couple from a distance hugging and holding each other. That’s when I look to my left shoulder and wish your presence was here but there was nothing. It’s the comfort that I look for that’s making me wanting to be in a relationship. Comfort, to be comfortable around that one person. I guess I will have to wait.

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 🙂 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 🙂 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. 🙂

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.  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 an impromptu 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  the ocean.

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

Biyernes Santo is family day 🙂 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 🙂

Friday the 13th salubong. Beer pong with the wolfpack 🙂 Girls vs. Boys

Friday the 13th nightout with the Wolfpack. 

This was actually my last nighout beforee heading back to Mindanao 🙂

Mid April, I attended my cousin and lovie’s graduation! yaaay! 🙂 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)

 That’s the last important event in my summer. My remaining days in Cebu were spent on satisfying cravings, playing scrabble or rummi with family, and then packing – loads of it. 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  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.

And the hearts all over the world

Hiyaaaa! First of all, I wanna apologize for being so lazy on updating my blog. I’m not even busy HAHA but anyway, FINALLY! here is my waaaaaaaaay long overdue post about Valentine’s Day.

I wanna make this special since I’m doing this on the 1st day of March HAHA (yes, it’s already the start of the 3rd month of the year even with the extra day last February)

I don’t actually anticipate Valentine’s Day. Well, it was fun during high school and it was still during college coz I get to go on different dinner dates with my various group of friends. In high school, it was all about being swoon and having the young love and the first of everything. Since I entered college, I’ve been in a long distance relationship for (almost) 4 years already, Vday became nothing but an ordinary day for me.

So I woke up a bit early because my mom and I went cloth hunting and shopping for my pre-made clothes.

A for EFFORT haha. You can hype this look here.
(Kenneth Cole leather bag; Thrifted Polkadot Top; NEXT red shorts; GH accessories; Parisian shoes)

Before I was shot for these photos, I had a total meltdown while putting on make-up.

Le boyf’s sissie arrived and delivered a bouquet of flowers and 3 packs of M&Ms. I was totally lost for words. It’s not the first time he ever surprised me but I wasn’t expecting ANYTHING at all.

Oh you know the cliche,

Flowers will wither within weeks and chocolate will only stay in your mouth for seconds.

 But I felt like I was in high school all over again and I suddenly realized that I am with someone who knows what they have when they have me. Love may be a word used too much and much too soon but love doesn’t come along too often. When it does, only the foolish let it fade.

How many people in a relationship can say that they love their partner even more each day? Cheesy shiz right? But I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m one of the few who can say it.

There is only one happiness in the world. To love and to be loved.

12:51 by @Krissyonfire & @erickaxx – a blog post of my current favorite song

– Late post since I was out of town. I found out that the MV was already released on Krissy’s tumblr last Feb. 1st. Since then I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve played the song and watched the video.
Whole day, everyday, before sleeping, upon waking up. NO JOKE.
I also downloaded their album and I always skip their covers to their original songs. HAHA #truth

LYRICS (disclaimer: I just copied this on Krissy’s blog:


I’m scrolling through my cell phone for the twentieth time today

Reading that text you sent me again, though I memorized it any way

It was an afternoon in December when it reminded you of the day

When we bumped into each other but you didn’t say ‘hi’ cause I looked away

And maybe that was the biggest mistake of my life,

And maybe I haven’t moved on since that night


Cause it’s 12:51 and I thought my feelings were gone,

But I’m lying on my bed

Thinking of you again, and the moon shines so bright

But I gotta dry these tears tonight

Cause you’re moving on and I’m not that strong

to hold on, any longer


Then I saw you with her

Didn’t think you’d find another

and my world just seemed to crash

I shouldn’t have thought that this would last

And maybe that was the biggest mistake of my life,

And maybe i haven’t moved on since that night


Cause it’s 12:51 and I thought my feelings were gone,

But I’m lying on my bed

Thinking of you again, and the moon shines so bright

But I gotta dry these tears tonight

Cause you’re moving on and I’m not that strong

to hold on, any longer


As the sky outside gets brighter

And my eyes begin to tire

I’m slowly drowning and memories of him

And I know it shouldn’t matter

As my heart begins to shatter

I’m left to wonder just how it should’ve been


Cause it’s 12:51 and I thought my feelings were gone,

But I’m lying on my bed

I’m not thinking of you again, and the moon shines so bright

But I gotta dry these tears tonight

Cause you’re moving on and I’m not that strong

to hold on…

Cause I’ll prove you wrong

That I can move on through this song

I’m so much stronger oo

If I wasn’t able to read their twitter (@Krissyonfire @erickaxx) updates while shooting this, I wouldn’t have thought this was shot in the Philippines. I am Über proud that these ladies came from my country! :’))
And because I first watched this in the middle of the night with headphones and in full volume, I actually cried. HAHA
Even if I’m not in an emo state, I felt the song.

If by chance Krissy and Ericka would read this, I hope you guys got the idea of this post –that I actually love you and your music and definitely gonna support you all the way as you soar high.

And SO! Let us all help them and vote for the 12:51 MV on let’s get that #1 spot! ((((((:

Hope you guys enjoyed.

Tryna fill the gaping hole in my chest w/ lots of ( @edsheeran ) music

When I saw this video last October, I only clicked the play button because of Rupert Grint. I gotta admit that. But when I listened to the song, it has been my lullaby and became my forever LSS. Beautiful, beautiful song.

note: Rupert isn’t the one singing. He’s just acting. The artist beyond this amazing talent is Ed Sheeran.

Then I tried to click the suggested links and without second thoughts, downloaded his “+” album

+ Album cover

You only have 3 reasons to love and start listening to him:

  1. He’s English.
  2. He’s 20 years old who writes his own songs and waaaaaaaaaay BETTER than Justin Bieber. I’m sorry but, haters gonna hate.
  3. He supports Snow Patrol.

So Imma leave you with my favorite song next to Lego House.

If you guys start to listen to him, don’t forget to let me now what you think! 😉

The Vow Movie

Okay, I know I am late but I watch this trailer at least twice a day and I think I ought to share this to you. (PS. I always get teary-eyed everytime. I could already imagine myself watching this in the movie house HAHA).

I’m a sucker for romantic films– tragic romantic films like If Only, A Walk To Remember, The Time Traveler’s Wife, One Day and The Notebook. *takes le big sigh* The Vow is an addition to my list which makes it look like more of a Rachel McAdams movie list. HAHA But anyway, I think she’s blessed to be always part of movies like this and I’ve always loved her. Do I still need to write why I love Channing Tatum? nahh.. you wouldn’t like that. it would take pages of this blog. HAHA

Food-a Fest

Food highlights last December before Christmas.


coconut chiffon muffins given by @kumoto

Korean ice creaaaaam! First time to try it. the vanilla and cheesecake ice cream sandwiches are to die fooor. Thanks to my girlfriend, Karen for taking me to the common USC-TC tambayan. I wouldn’t have the chance to discover it.

When my cousin Alina arrived from Vienna, she brought various kinds of cheeses. Among the variants are sheep’s, goat’s, cow’s cheeses and  even mountain cheese!
My personal fave is the sheep’s cheese, it’s uuuuber yummy! and the perfect one to pair with sky flakes is the cow’s.

When you have relatives in Europe, it’s never complete if they can’t bring Milka chocolates for pasalubong. It’s my number 1 favorite chocolate in the world (next is Merci ;)) Anyway, this time, my cousin brought Milka flavors that we’ve never tasted. I’ve always loved the hazelnuss (hazelnut) Milka. But I forgot about it when I tasted the Schoko & Keks and the Erdbeer Joghurt. Foodgasm to shorten the description.

Lychee shake at Vibes located behind Cebu Doctor’s University Hospital. It’s the next best thing to their durian shake 😉

Ber months mean that it’s the Starbucks sticker collection month. This year, I decided not to get their planner since I don’t go to Starbucks anymore. But when I saw the 2012 planner, it comes with a case. None of my sbux planners have cases so I decided to adjust my plans. So happy that for the first time in Starbucks history, they got my name right and it was my barista crush who  wrote it! 😉

The next day? FLOP. The barista was rude and I was “Nika” all over again.

Taylor Swift – Sparks Fly (AJ Rafael, Krissy & Ericka)

Okay.. I don’t really listen to Taylor Swift but when I saw AJ Rafael‘s tweet about doing a cover with Ericka and Krisssy Villongco, I just had to watch and listen to it.

These 3 in one video. AMAZEBALLS.
And I’m proud to say that they’re all Filipino youtube-bers.

I also wanna share this pahabol video.
The one that got away by Katy Perry (Cover)- Krissy and Ericka Villongco,

I wanna be FOREVER XXI

Sooo excited to get this post published because I know a lot of people love Forever 21 like me.

If this picture is familiar to you then you might have read the previous post. These are my mom’s birthday presents from F21 SG ❤

You can stand under my umbrella..ella..ella..eyy..eyy..eyy 🙂

Mom knows how obsessed I am with nail polish and anything else that’s got to do with it. So she bought me a pedicure set and 2 hues of F21 nail lacquer.

Just last month, November 14, Forever 21 PH opened a branch in Cebu! So my friends and I went to the opening even if we were all broke (I only had 50 pesos in my wallet that time and nothing more)

L-R: my CDU friends El, Mary Fel, Essa & Aiken
Was really upset that time because I wasn’t able to take pictures :/
My phone died minutes after this shot

 Anyway, my mom arrived days after my birthday and I took her to the newly opened F21 since she needs to buy winter clothes for my dad (My dad is a stay in employee at Athens, Greece and he rarely goes out to shop for himself).
Of course I took a couple of stuff for me HAHA 😉

Newest turban being worn. ❤

I was really freaking out when I found  a row of gel eyeliners. Would you believe that it’s only 95php per tube? so I bought 2 since I’m going to be in Mindanao for quite a while and I’m sure it’s is going to be sold out in less than a week. I was dying to buy the one in Maybelline but it’s actually 400 bucks per tube.
Thanks F21 for this cheap bargain! ❤

Just last Saturday, I finally got my package from my close friend, Phyllis who has already moved to Miami years ago.

My new babies are very well taken care of. THANKS PHYLL!! ❤

So what if I can’t afford Topshop. I wanna be forever 21 anyway 😉 HAHA
And just recently, one of the most famous European brands, BERSHKA opened in Manila. And to honor that, I’m wearing a Bershka skirt right now haha.
Will cross my fingers for H&M  to open here in the Philippines too! But I tweeted them and they replied there are no plans yet 😦

Oh well hope you did not get bored with this post. More of Forver 21 soon!
