As soon as we saw the sale banner on one of the airline sites, we booked our tickets to the cheapest destination it covered: Hong Kong. “What are we gonna do there?”, someone asks. “Bahala na! Basta let’s just book!” Hahaha! Our BSB (Bible Study Barkada) is full of serial travellers. Any excuse to leave, and they're out! But this would be our first time travelling together. And Hong Kong seemed like the perfect place to start—it required getting on a plane, but is really just
I first met Jason at Iya and Drew’s wedding. But of course, I had already been hearing about him prior to that. “Si JMag? Siya yung grabeng galing gumawa ng wedding videos at same day edit…” “Siya yung nagpauso ng same day edit!” “He’s always booked! I heard there’s a two year waiting list!” So many bulung-bulungans about the rockstar of the wedding industry! And when Shaina and I (both "loveless" at that time) finally met Jason, we transformed into these annoying fan girls,
I've been itching to post photos of the wedding but every time I get to sorting them out, I end up reminiscing and going through all of them and having to start from the beginning! Now that I've shared some of my pre-wedding sentiments on the first post of the wedding series, here are some more practical tips (9, to be exact!) that I picked up during this season. Budget After deciding on a date and venue, the next most important thing you and your fiancè should discuss is bud
My Lolo and Lola used to take the entire family on random trips throughout the year. From water parks to amusement parks (Big Bang sa Alabang, Glicos, Kids at Work, Enchanted, hahahaha!), to more educational trips like Nayong Pilipino, the Ayala Museum, name it! Any excuse to take the family on a field trip! It brought them joy to see everyone together despite the noise and chaos we created! So when they passed away, our parents decided to continue their legacy. And when THEY
Babs, Princess Mia and Rey. I came across this video a few days ago and couldn't wait for it to be Monday so I can share it. Haha! This song is from the musical Chorus Line. The second video is a feature on the recording, where we find out that this was Daisy Ridley's first recording project. Oh, and it just happens to be with Barbra Streisand. Barbra. Streisand. No biggie. :p And if you want to geek out some more, there's a third video which deconstructs the song. I may be a
Some brides would say a year is more than enough time to plan for a wedding. But mine took more than 28 years of preparation! On the day of my wedding, I woke up a little before my alarm went off. And my first thought was, “God, this is it! I can’t believe it. We’re here!”. I felt like a storybook traveler journeying off to some far away land, and eventually reaching her destination. *kneels, kisses ground* Haha! There was this overwhelming feeling of absolute awe, gratefulne
I've loved Corinne Bailey Rae ever since "Put Your Records On". Listening to her voice feels like eating salted caramel popcorn minus the kernels you can choke on. Haha! I'm not a BIG fan of the entire album, but this song is GOLD. And yes, I just said APHRODISIAC. I'm married, children. Mehehe! :p Enjoy!
"...and they all died of cholesterol. The End.” -Nikki Gil, 1995 This was how I ended one of the stories I wrote on my Hello Kitty notebook when I was around 7. Hahaha! I was quite proud of it too. I remember writing this soon after reading The Secret Garden which opens during an outbreak of Cholera. Hence, I'm guessing, the use of the word "cholesterol". Hahaha! I didn’t get why all the grown ups thought it was funny. Until my doctor Lolo explained to me the difference bet
