Holidays with the Family
In the past two Christmas, it was only my sister and I who spent it at home. I hate the feeling of "loneliness" during Christmas, because we were used to the very noisy house with a lot of food on our dining table. As a result, I called up my aunt and I asked her if we could just celebrate it in their house, and there, we had our Noche Buena with my aunt and cousins.

On the other hand, New Year's Eve was great. The whole clan had a gathering and celebration. Dinner was yummy, games were fun and picture moments were perfect! :)

Christmas with MDB
Sunday, January 23, 2011
After my party with blockmates, I went straight to Makati to meet my barkada. We had our Christmas dinner at Pizza Hut Bistro. Unfortunately, we were not complete because Reanne was m-i-a due to stomach ache. It's really an effort for us to have a gathering because of our conflicting schedules.

Christmas Party w/ Blockmates
Saturday, January 22, 2011
First of all, I would like to apologize for being m-i-a for the past few weeks. My third term is quite jam packed, and I have no time to blog or do my usual online routines. The term is pretty heavy especially because of my majors, and as always, I have to set my priorities first. :)
Anyway, I have quite a lot of things to talk about. First, i'll be gladly to share my Christmas experience with my blockmates.
My blockmates are very spontaneous- even with this gathering. They called me up a few days before Dec. 20 to remind me that we're having a Christmas party at K's house in Quezon City. I replied to the messages, but afterwards there were no more updates. I thought it was cancelled so I decided to have other commitments on that day.
At 6pm, I received a text message from K, saying that the party is still on and that people are coming. Okay, that was 6pm, and what time do people expect me to come if I'm coming from another party? well, i left the party for my blockmates and I arrived at 10pm with the drinks as part of my share.:)
L-R: K, Julian, Ronna, me, Russel, Guia, Rielle & Dea
honestly, I could only sing w/ my blockmates! :)) with others, i don't!
after sleepover with Dea. Hello eyebags! :))

Clubbin' during finals' week
My Australian cousins were too excited to enter the club here in Manila bec. it's their first time; since clubs in Australia are strictly for 18 years and above. So us cousins gathered and went to Eastwood last Dec. 10. I was in the middle of my cramming session, when I have to stop and I joined them. I felt so liberated from stress at that time & yeah, I had a good time. When everyone else were getting tipsy, they left me on the freakin' dance floor & i got to dance with random strangers. Yeah, it was good- to dance w/ good looking men. :">
with Mina & Felisa & both are in their Junior year in high school
Lace black dress from Pill at The Ramp
One of my cousins took this video. This was before we moved to the dance floor. We're having some drinks & dancing to the music. Carl looks so funny in the video.
