Out on a Weekend

Wings and rings plate
I think this one is called Baked Italian Sausage Penne (or something like that)
strawberry supershake


As you have known, I am not the type who will go out on a weekend not unless I need to (like going to church or grocery). It gives me a lethargic feeling, which I am trying to overcome. This weekend I went on an eating spree! I was really craving for some waffles but we can't find any shop that has mango waffles so we went to our local Shakey's instead. I ordered strawberry milkshake which is my ultimate favorite. I also tried this Baked Italian Sausage Penne ( I always order spaghetti since it's the safest), umm..not bad. It is just a bit oily for my liking.We also ordered Wings and Rings Plate which I think has the bestest buffalo wings I've ever tasted!
I know I don't eat healthy. I eat chocolate in wild abandon or gorge myself with french fries. But on the other hand, I am trying to increase my healthy food intake (like veggies and fish). I know this will not compensate for  eating the 'bad' food. But I really can't help it. I don't know if ever I survive a day without eating chocolate.
And lastly, I wish my weight will increase and will pass 45kg. Bless me!!!!

Tell You Everything- Katie Sky feat. Kate McGill

I watched dope2111's video in youtube and I've been hooked with its soundtrack ever since.
Here's the original video:

My Two Cents of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe"

I have a love-and-hate relationship with this song. Its music video with Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber became viral and has more than 45 million hits in youtube! The song is about a girl who likes a boy and has given her number and ask to call her (maybe?). The tune is also catchy and the type you'll play in the morning as your 'wake me up' song. I played that song for more than a thousand times and I love it. Let's check the lyrics, mainly the chorus:
Hey I just met you, and this is crazy. But here's my number. So call me, maybe?
I have two opinions about this song. First, as a modern 21st century girl, we have the right to speak our mind. We no longer live in a caged corset world where everything needs to be done with utmost modesty (picture 18th century). We have been given freedom to be our self and not to be overshadowed by male domination. This means if we like a guy, it is ok for us to ask them out first, Plain and simple. Most especially if the guy you like is not noticing you.  Maybe that's the inspo of Jepsen's Call Me Maybe. There's no need for us girls keep our feelings for the guy we love. If you like a guy, tell him!  One of my friend told me that Call Me Maybe is a cheapo booty call song: 'call me maybe?. I was totally against it. You can freely express it (but not to the extent of  kissing and sleeping with EVERY guy you like, that's not what I mean).

On the other hand, we know we still have Maria Clara genes running through our veins. Uber conservative people might hate the song's lyrics. Asking a boy out is a definite no-no!!! I am part conservative-part modern. Though I haven't tried asking a guy out, I know I can tell the guy that I like him. But I still let them do the chasing. And living in a patriarchal society, some guys don't like girls giving motives. They still want to be the one who will ask the girl first.   

The song is now giving me headaches. But maybe I am just over-thinking. It is just a matter of choice anyway. It is still up to you if you want to chase the guy you like or the other way around. Just do it with class so you won't end up feeling cheap and hurt. xx

Galaxy Nails

I keep my nails polish-free most of the time but this glittery polish from the Korean brand TheFaceShop  was so hard to resist. And I know I have to buy one. Imagine: stars or jewels on your nails! I dreamed of fetching stars when I was a kid and I think doing this somehow made my dreams come true (hehe).  I was a bit experimental so applied it over a black polish. 

Black polish from Caronia and Glitter polish from TheFaceShop
Sorry for the smudges = (
The glitters come in different shapes and sizes. I applied two coats of glitter polish over a black nail polish but you can apply more coats depending on your desired outcome. This was also applied on short nails since I don't grow my nails long. If I have long nails, I might try doing a French tip style manicure and I'll try to use cosmetic glitter (for more glittery effect) instead. Actually I've tried it already over a platinum nail polish but the effect was not that apparent.  I like the effect more on black. It looks like stars on a summer night!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Hi everyone,


(photo source)

Today is my birthday and I'm nothing but thankful for all the blessings I received. My list goes:

My family. I am not a perfect daughter or sister. I still shout at my brothers if I'm pissed but I am grateful that they're there for me everytime I need them.

Friends. I have down moments especially at work but I am thankful that I have friends who always there to support me. My life won't be as fun as this if not because of them. haha.

My job. I hate my boss (he's a devil reincarnate) but I am still thankful for my job since it's my life support. haha..

You. I couldn't ask for more.

My life is so crazy but I am thankful that a year has been added to my age. Time flies. My mother would wish that I am still six playing with my brothers and bringing the house down (oh, that's a very good memory I wish I could tell you someday). Before, I never appreciate my birthday. For me it is just a normal day. I never get excited about it. But hopefully in years to come I'll be able to fulfill my dreams like travel and have children and have a house of my own. Simple things like that. And most especially to spend my life with the all the people that matters.

Things to achieve...

Hi everyone,

Before I start this post, I think I should put a picture that will serves as my motivation:

There you go. 

I've been so lazy and demotivated these past few days. I am so stressed and I don't know why. I've been so unproductive. Everything seems to be pointless. I always feel tired! Anyway I realized that I need to get up and haul my a** and better get going. And to motivate myself I listed here some goals that I hope to achieve before the month ends. 

Exercise. I think I'm living a stationary life. My job requires less body movement. I need to live healthy (but of course not sacrificing eating sweets that helps me motivated.hehe). I promise to walk home since my apartment is only 500 meters away from work.

Cook. I am not a culinary expert. I can't even perfect cooking rice without a rice cooker or frying a fish without burning it. But I know aside from fish (which is my waterloo when it comes to cooking) I do well with adobo and sinigang (I finally know how to cook the way I want it). I also hate food from our office pantry so I think I also need to pack my lunch.

Take some pictures. I've been neglecting my camera and I have no new photos. I am also not an expert on this field but practice makes perfect.

Clean the apartment. Maybe the reason why I am less motivated is because my room screams that I need to clean it. It's not that it's not that organized, but you know when you need to do some mopping and scrubbing,, yeah, that stuff.

Buy a book. I need to feed my literary craving. It's been ages since my last purchase. (I've been buying alot of beauty magazines though. Define weakness.)

Post a blog regularly. I am not promising but I hope to post twice or thrice a week.

Watch a movie. I mean movies in the theaters. Not downloaded movies.


I think that is all for now. Small goals at a time. I don't want to load this post with things that I might not be able to do. I have less than three weeks to achieve all of these (chocolates please!!!). Hope you'll be able to do this kind of stuff as well. Goodluck!
