I just finished working my through this album in multiply. I just got the photos that my dad took a few hours ago.

I wrote about Christmas Day in Quezon (entitled: UNTITLED). I didn't have the photos with me before. I uploaded them now for everyone to see. Nakakaiyak.

Ib and I were supposed to hang out with Franco and JB at Four by Force, which is a cool place to drink and chill with friends, by the way (located at Granada St. (?), near the parols). I don't mean to rub this "een", Ib, if ever you're reading this. She lost her wallet with 5,000 in it. I just travelled to Marikina (with Tatang, of course). Fun night with the Badet. Just get ready for the emotional blog entry in the latter part, I am just thankful for our friendship. BADET FOREVER.

On Christmas Eve, the whole family feasted on food that could last us for a week and handed out gifts wrapped in pretty gift wrapping paper. There were no carolers outside, considering it was 12 midnight but we could hear the children lining up.
Christmas in Mauban will always and forever be FUN, plus some other MIXED EMOTIONS to complete the baggage. Since 1988, the Lim family has been giving a one-time dole outs to people who are not so blessed in life. An apple, an ABL shipping shirt, and money (they started with P10 in 1988 and escalated—a new word in my vocab, I intend to use this in everyday conversations, get ready IPE!—to P50 this year). Almost 2,600 people—children, grandparents, and parents, lined up outside our house this year for toys, old clothes and toys, an apple, P50, an ABL (credit: Albert B. Lim, my Kong-kong) shipping or a Skippy shirt for the little ones, which is truly bongga (the Skippy shirts, I mean)! Kidding aside, these kids will work their way through the crowd, fight danger even—climbing up the pointed rails of our home in sheer desperation just to get what, fifty-bucks. While I was busy, giving plastics to the kids whose smell I wouldn’t usually let pass (thanks to my colds, I got absolved from it, but that’s not my point), it got me thinking how much pride parents, especially fathers would have to put down while watching their hopeful children accept these things, when in truth, (or just what I know of) they should be the one providing these things. I mean, in the world that I know, or choose to know, these are just things that are handed to us, these things are complained about, “just 50 pesos? Anong bibilin ko, candy?” or “ayoko yan, hindi branded!”
Reality bites. Hard. And as much of a cliché the saying is, it is true. Go to Mauban on holidays. Hear the children cry in agony because others are stepping on their feet. See the grandparents faint because of the stampede that the children caused.
The gates do not open until 8:00 am.

The best Christmas Party ever! People were down with alcohol--thanks to Sober Club. Thank you, one and all. I love you! (Photo credit: Original photos form Shao and the doodles are by me using Apple's Paintbrush)

Yes, I wanna pack up and go (not Hanson's Get Up and Go). I've no inkling as to what holds this packing and leaving bonanza, but all I know is I want my own apartment and have a hot roommate. Okay, STOP.

Gorgeous dress by Shai Dela Merced. The next big thing, as Karryl puts it. This was shot in DLS-CSB, S.D.A. Building. Good thing we had a free cut in IPE!

I think it's the first time, at least this sem, that I slept at 11:00pm and woke up at EXACTLY 4:20 am by 3 alarm clocks, which I thought was impossible for me to do. I've never woken up by an alarm clock EVER. So, it's a first, literally. Okay, I have to read.

Okay, not the best but hey, I TRIED. I was trying to figure out what to do for my creative shot for the yearbook picture. I came up with Phoebe Buffay and Andy Sachs. But which one? I was rummaging through my closet and I found these: A worn-out, black vest/cardigan and a checkered polo, and my once-worn bootsies. I just don't know when to wear the ensemble because it would perfect for an evening date (left) and an afternoon shopping trip with the girlfriends (right). BUT both are out of reach so, maybe next year? OKAY.

This is one of those columns that Mr. Avila talked about last Saturday. "I love Chocolate cake..." Who cares and SO WHAT?! "I got mad at a girl in church awhile ago, I hissed (with all the might not to use any obscene language), 'SOMEONE'S PRAYING BEHIND YOU'".

I remember transferring to blogger because I wanted to turn over a new leaf--too bad, the new leaf turned into a dried, crunchy one. And so, I have decided: IT'S SPRING AGAIN.

Something that Zia forwarded. I am seriously laughing my pants off, but nothing beats the joy I have while watching Micah Lu's grandma's first rollercoaster ride.

I guess Clooney will be having his much needed rest after a hell-hole of a semester. My dad has been bugging me to "pimp" his laptop and asked me to download songs between cheesey and okay-cheesey by Elton John and The Cure, respectively.

What could be more exciting than a whole day spent with friends? NOTHING. I had lunch with half of the OC (Toni, Triccie, and Bea) yesterday. I look at you guys and realize how much we've grown, I am tearing up as I write this. Gym next week, okay? Ki also treated me, Franco, and Zia to a movie and dinner. The money was with me, and it just feels so good to just spend money that isn't yours, while pretending (in the back of your mind) the it is and showing the waiters and cashiers what a good sister you are, treating your siblings to a movie and buying them "whatever they want".

I had a rough start this year and going through the months of drawbacks, resentment, and whatnot would usually make me feel like this tiny person who didn't deserve anything. The weird thing is, I am doing pretty fine. I've been waiting for so long to finally say that I AM DOING FINE. The problem is, I tell people that I'm an optimist but in reality I am the opposite (which I doubt because being a pessimist would seem like an understatement). I am afraid of failure, imperfection, and anything that would trigger criticisms, but I've realized that sometimes there are things (and/or people) that would drag you to those things that you've been avoiding ever since you've learned basic Geometry (in my case, the 1st grade).

I AM BACK! Although it's good to be back home, I am missing my friends and Bacolod ever so much. I've made some progress because I can understand Ilonggo already but I can't speak Ilonggo--let's just say, I can't express myself.

So, I tried to pack for my trip to Bacolod (which I am really excited for) but all I got was a messier closet! I miserably failed and I have no time to pack tomorrow, I'm pretty sure I'll leave something behind. WAAAH. The photos here only show one side of the room. As for the other side? I decided not to take a photo of it, let alone look at it. I just realized you need inspiration. I have none.

After my FIL103 final, I rushed home because I felt like something was not right. I was about to press the elevator button when it the doors opened, only to see my parents and my aunt--all wearing black. I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG. That's when they told me that my Lola passed away that morning. We rushed to the funeral parlor and the rest is history. The details are still difficult to write about as I remember every single conversation we had that day, October 12th, 2006. I miss my Lola. She was sweet and loving (and treats me like a princess whenever I got to Bulacan). She would change the sheets because she knew that I would be curling up on her bed with a good book and then fall asleep. Everytime I had a Christmas Party in school, she would be the one to cook the chicken assigned for me to bring. I MISS AND LOVE YOU. She passed due to cancer. I know she's watching over me. Always. I miss your house, Lola. It's funny how the house seems to be gloomy but sometimes it's as if you're just there. WE MISS YOU.

When boiling water, you have to put water on the pot, and place the pot on the stove, then light up the stove?

Later is too soon. Tomorrow is too uncertain. And forever is too much of a dream.

I just noticed that my face is uneven. I know that our faces are naturally asymmetrical and that only a few have symmetrical faces like, Yoanna House. This is no Yoanna House.

I just cooked my first pancit canton! I just realized I didn't know how to boil water. I am so proud.

I have been such a busy bee this week (DAW). I'm in the course of "doing" my paper and I'm actually thinking of not passing it. I mean, I'd rather watch FRIENDS until I doze off. RRRRR, I don't wanna study anymore. Mother took me to iGig and shoe shopping (I took her there, rather).She picked me up from school because "naawa siya sa akin, matagal na daw ako hindi nagsh-shopping. Mukha ba akong "mukhang shopping"? HINDI. ANNNNNDDD Ta-da! Clooney has a new look. Thanks, Ma, nahiya na talaga ako. But she says that I deserve it after a week of not being able to sleep. Tignan nalang natin sa grades. Baka hindi na ako i-shopping ever!

Pop and Ki picked me up awhile ago. Thanks for the top! Ha ha. Okay, so I was driven by some whim, I decided: I'm getting a new look. So, I had them drop me off at the salon. I was supposed to sleep the entire afternoon but no. And I was nervous about this, um, transformation because I dyed my hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eh, ayoko pa naman magpa-dye before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay. My face looks thinner, so okay lang! Double purpose bangs ko, salamat sa stylist! It's my first time in ten years na merong nag-gupit na bangs ko, ako lang kase nag-gugupit! PWEDE NA AKO MAGPA-RENEW, SA WAKAS!

It's the feeling of depression but not knowing its cause--in my case, causes. I know I have been a toughie lately, ignoring this feeling, whatever it is. I texted Karla: I miss you, Eds. I'm depressed. NOT KNOWING WHY. Perhaps the very reason of my depression is stuck in my subconscious mind and I have been trying my very best to ignore it. I do not have time to entertain depression now as I have loads to do and by blogging, I am able to take a breather. I am not the most religious person on earth for I have done things that would take a long time for me to be sorry for. Let's just hope I make it in time before entering the gates of heaven. For the past week, I have done nothing but whine about the things that I couldn't have. I failed to look at the things that I do have. I am depressed. I am a firm believer of God's miraculous ways. He finds a way to make me understand that I am still lucky, even in the state of (questionable) depression. I was sorting out my mail awhile ago when I came across a forwarded mail that Anj sent on August 31st, which I haven't read until tonight. It was a long message with photo attachments.
