It was my friend, Memesh, 19th birthday @ Racks in MOA last July 30. We had a lunch celebration with some schoolmates. The guys are 1 year ahead of our batch and us, girls, are comm. students. Though I am the only one taking up CommArts, while the rest of the girls are taking up OrgComm. I really had fun with these people and it was nice to update everyone with the latest issues. :P Afterward, the guys went back to school because they were part of a radio event while us, girls, watched Ghost House.

Day 30- A Photo of You When You Were Happy
2010 has been so kind to me and I guess, I am happier this year. This picture with Marnique is one of my happy days this year. I could not be more thankful and grateful for all the blessings that I have received this year. I just wish that this happiness will continue as time passes by.

Day 29- A Photo of Someone You Find Attractive
Sunday, August 29, 2010
This is the dude that I currently find attractive and yes, we know each other personally. Thank you facebook for allowing me to see his other pictures aka. stalk. Good thing about him: HE IS SINGLE. :)) wtf. and from the researches made by the people around me, he's one hella nice guy. His playboy image is actually the opposite of the real him. Guys like him are very rare to find nowadays.
NOTE TO SELF:
You know the risks of posting this pic. Goodluck & hoping that he won't find out this existing blog page.

Day 26- A Photo of Your Favorite Weekend
My favorite weekends will always be the ones I got to spend time in Serendra and High Street. Drinking coffee and eating desserts in the afternoon while having dinner in a posh restaurant at night are ways to celebrate my independence from everything. I also love shopping in the place because of the better crowd and I always get discounts from the stores.

Day 25- A Photo of a Night You Loved
salubong of my 19th birthday, with college friends
I would consider the eve of my 19th birthday as one the best nights that I've ever had. Honestly, my 19th birthday was the best birthday ever because I got to celebrate it for 3 days with the people I love. My family may not be here to celebrate it with me, but I have friends to spend my birthday with me. I have realized that I am really a lucky and blessed person because I got real friends and these friends, we're meant to be forever. I love you so much guys. You've made me really happy and you inspire me to be at my best all the time. :) Thank you so much to my family, MDB barkada, blockmates, college friends and high school friends. Thank you for always being there and for always showing your love and support. :)

Day 24- A Photo of You that Your Hair Looks Nice in
I really loved my hair on the day that this picture was taken. It was perfectly cooperating & it was in the shape where I would want it. Also, my hair's so alive and the color's in full bloom. :P Even if this picture was not edited, my natural warm colored hair's still shining brightly. This picture is currently my Twitter's display picture.

Day 23- A Photo of Your Friend as a Baby
As much as I want to post my friend's baby picture, I cannot. She will hate me if I am going to post her picture and everyone will see it. Due to that reason, I need to respect her privacy and I hope that everyone will understand.

Day 22- A Photo of Your Town
This is a picture of the central town of our city, Taguig. My house's location is only five minutes away from Fort, ten minutes from McKinley Hill, and three minutes from C5 Petron. I'm happy that my place is just near the malls, bars, restaurants, and other fun places. My neighborhood is good as well because some of my neighbors are from CSA & DLSU. Also, I have so many friends living near my area.

These girls are my favorites! They are actually my nieces already since their dads are my cousins.
It's just the best whenever I am with Ate Den, Celine and Rose Ann. Celine is living in Canada and from time to time she visits us here. Ate Den is moving to Canada in October near Celine's place and lastly, Rose Ann will soon follow her mom who is currently working in Canada. Okay, we'll have our own destinations in the future and I'm the only one going to the United States, but we'll still visit one another!

Day 13- A Photo of Your Best Friends
during my 19th birthday
Meet my best friends, Kathleen & Ma. Marcella- Kaye & Marce for short. We have been friends since 1st year high school (we met in 4th grade) and through the years our friendship has become stronger and tighter. We have so many things in common like love for fashion, arts, sports, chill time, dining out and any adventures! Our courses are even related with one another- Marce is taking up Advertising while Kaye is taking up Journalism and yours truly is taking up Communication Arts. One day, we will all be in the same industry and probably put up a business together! :> Before we get married, we will travel around the Philippines first, then visit the nearby Asian countries then tour around Europe and lastly, settle in America. If there is one thing that differs us then that is our taste for boys! :)) Look at our ex boyfriends, they don't look alike naman noh? :)) If those boys have a resemblance then it means we have the same taste for guys. :)) Lastly, they are one of the nicest people you will ever meet, so don't you ever mess up with them because if they are going to ask for my help, I'll gladly make your life a living hell. :D

Day 11- A Photo of Your Favorite Films
Friday, August 13, 2010
I really love watching films, may it be in English, Filipino or in another language. My genre of choice are comedy. light drama and adventure. I have plenty of favorite films but I have only included 8 here.
One More Chance (2007)
I'm sure, every Filipino from my generation has watched this. Among all Filipino films, this is the one I considered the best because of the awesome lines delivered in this film. Sobrang patama at tinamaan naman ako. I could relate to both Basha & Popoy's feelings. I swear, even if I have watched this film several times already, I still cry over and over again.
A Walk to Remember (2002)
This film was shown when I was in 5th grade and this also made me cry. Well, all Nicholas Sparks's books are a tearjerker and there is always someone who would die in the end plus it's always located in North Carolina. Whenever I watch this (over & over) and hear the songs, I could remember the very 1st dude who made me feel the butterflies in my stomach. :)) Oo na, ako na ang malandi. :)) The very first guy who broke my heart (hindi naman intense) and we've never been friends again. Although, after 8 years, he approached me and asked how I was when we've bumped into each other at this resto near my university & in my mind I was like, "tang ina mo, makalipas ang ilang taon bigla mo akong kukumustahin at kung kelan nag college na" =)) I'm not bitter noh, I was just not expecting that it will happen.
Just like Heaven (2005)
Another tearjerker. I watched this movie with my mom and my balikbayan relatives from Canada. And I have realized that it was not only me whose tears are starting to roll down. Nice story.
White Chicks (2004)
I've watched this in 7th grade with my classmates and it's so funny. I love their team-up especially when they have transformed into white chicks. :))
New York Minute & Mean Girls
Do I need to elaborate why I like these films? :)) Hey, it's a girly-girl movie!
Harry Potter series
From book 1-6, I have watched it and I always end up upset because I have read the book and many parts were not included. I have grown into these films. The very first one was on Nov. '99 and I watched it with my mommy and sisters and the last one was on July '09 with my ex.
Home Alone 3 (late 90s)
This movie's hilarious. As a kid, I couldn't stop laughing while watching this.

Day 10- A Photo of You as a Baby
Tuesday, August 10, 2010
This was taken in 1992 when I was a year old. I was with my sister in this picture but I cropped it and left myself.
Meli♥ 12:43 AM
Day 09- A Photo of Your Family
Meet my huge family.(Marj & I are not in picture) The two people on each end, wearing glasses, are my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and the kids are my nephews and nieces. My friends who met my parents told me that my parents are not the typical type. According to them, they are cool. Well, I enjoy bonding with my family because no single day would pass without us laughing. A warning though, never ever make them angry or else you will see the worst in them. Like them, I could be very nice and be devil as well. When provoked, you will see the worst in me and I can make your life a living hell. Therefore, we are not the right person to mess up with.
Meli♥ 12:36 AM
Day 08- A Photo of Your Favorite Band/Musician
Monday, August 9, 2010
It is no doubt that my favorite band is The Beatles. My mom is a big fan of them and she always listens to them and other classic artists especially every Sunday and eventually I was influenced by my mom. There is something in their music that makes me want to listen all the time. Aside from The Beatles, I am also into The Spice Girls, especially in my younger years wherein I could hear them everywhere. Today, my favorite would include Coldplay, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Paramore, Black Eyed Peas, and Owl City
