Another Birthday Shoutout & Another Celebrity Crush

Look at how time flies so fast. It seems like it was only yesterday when I went off to MOA to celebrate Ryan's 24th dinner birthday celebration and now he's 25! Been friends with him for about ten years or so now ever since we were in high school.

Actually, to tell the truth, Ryan and I didn't instantly click the first time we met, which was in 4th Grade! Yeah,  it gets that way when you go to a school that accepts students from kinder to high school - you pretty much get to know almost everyone. You see, during fourth grade elementary, he and I both got transferred for the very first time in the star section class - that's the section of the supposedly smartest kids in school. Ironically, we didn't get along even though we were both newbies in a class that's known each other since the first grade. Actually, I disliked him in fourth grade. I thought Ryan was a snob! And it didn't help matters either that he teased me a lot. So it's pretty much a surprise to us that we somehow hit it off when we ended up becoming classmates again during our freshman year in high school.

I credit Ryan for introducing most of the friends I made during our high school days. He's always been quite the social butterfly whereas I was pretty reserved. He hasn't lost that biting wit actually and I love that about him. He also hasn't lost his fun loving side. Anyhow, happy birthday Ryan! I really hope all your wishes will be granted and I hope all your dreams can come true!


Ooh la la! I said it before and I will say it again, Ian Somerhalder is one hot vampire! These are a couple of photos of Ian's GQ photoshoot. Gosh I have to buy the complete DVD of Vampire Diaries season 1 soon!

More Updates

My long time crush, John Pratts! <3 <3 <3

So since I work for an events company, I sometimes get to work with celebrities. Last March 25, TV5 held their trade launch event at World Trade Center, Pasay. We handled the pre-show event and since it's a network launch, there were celebrities galore! But I only took one photo. See, I don't get starstruck with local celebrities - there are just a few exemptions! John Pratts is one of 'em. I've had a crush on him since I saw him on Ang TV. So I was absolutely thrilled to hear that he was going to be part of TV5's show and because I was part of production team, I had backstage access!

He's so nice. When I approached him, he actually shook my hand! Took all my strength not to faint right there and then. I mean, he shook my hand! And when I asked him for a photo op, he also held my hand to assist me on taking our photo. Super kilig yes! I think he looks really cute in this photo. My only regret is I didn't talk to him and introduce myself better. That was my chance. Darn it. Oh well. Maybe we'll meet again.

I like these boots from VNC. Wanted to buy it but it's kinda expensive. I guess I'm giving up on it though. I have to be practical. And I have so many shoes I want to buy so I guess, it's bye bye booties.

During the Araw ng Kagitingan non-working holiday, Mai Ann and I helped ourselves to Burger King's Swiss Mushroom burgers. It had been a long while since I ate at BK so I really enjoyed this lunch.

The weekend after our TV5 event, I went out with friends and treated myself to White Hat Froyo! Delish.

Spent the weekend after the TV5 launch with Jordan and Mai Ann. A get together with friends is always a great way to destress.

Me a Redhead And a Birthday Shoutout

Hurray! I can post pics with my updates. I can't believe I actually bought a Bluetooth usb device from CD-R King just so I could send photos to the laptop from my phone, darn me, turns out our HP laptop already has a built in bluetooth device! Oh well, I'll find a way to either use this or just sell this to someone else.

All rightie. On to my updates. And I would like to start with a birthday shoutout to my friend, Mai Ann who's 25 today officially.  
Mai Ann at Univers Kaizen Salon. No she didn't get anything done. I did. She just accompanied me.

I truly love this girl friend of mine! She's such a fashionista and she's got good taste in guys.When Mai Ann says a guy is cute, he really is - almost celebrity like cute. We also have so much in common like we're both mall rats! 

I've been friends with her since high school - junior year to be exact. We were classmates and I got to know her through a mutual friend of ours who's such a social butterfly and then our friendship developed when we became classmates again during senior year. 

Another thing we both love? Fro yos! I took this pic when we went to White Hat MOA.

She's going to be a great architect someday soon. In fact, I've already asked her to be the one to design my house when I finally have the money for it. Ann, you're one fine girl! Any guy would be so lucky to have you as his girlfriend... But while you haven't met him, let's both enjoy being the single, fabulous gals that we are.;-)

Oh and speaking of getting something done, I recently had my hair colored. Yeah! Finally after months of talking about doing it, I finally had the guts and the moolah to do so. I got my hair colored red. Why red? Well, I'm a Lindsay Lohan fan and I love Lilo's red hair. 
This is me, pre-hair color. Don't know if you could tell, but I actually have natural light brown hair. And although I like that, I thought it was time to sport a new look. 

Voila! Now I'm a red head. Well, it's kinda reddish brown actually. Mai Ann helped me picked. She's got good taste, I tell ya!

Although I actually considered getting it colored red RED like Karylle's. And in case you haven't seen her new hair color, I took a pic from a magazine cover. I'm also a Karylle fan by the way. Not a big fan. But a fan nevertheless.

Next time, I'll go sport this look!

For now though, I'm more than happy to have the Lindsay red hair. :-)

Okay, I've more updates to blog about including my experience meeting a long time celebrity crush but I will stop here for now. More on the next few days.

Everybody's Fine

I have this nightly weekday routine: everyday, when I come home from work, I go up to my parents' room and I pop in a DVD movie to watch. And so here I go, sharing another movie I saw just the other night: Everybody's Fine. I'm not sure if this has been released in theaters here in Manila already as I rarely go to a movie house nowadays.

It stars Robert de Niro as a father of four grown up kids. He's a father who demands nothing more from his children than to be the best they can be. That's his dream, nothing more. You might say he's a bit of a perfectionist. For the holidays, he went shopping for new stuff as he was expecting every one of his kids to come home and celebrate with him but then they all cancelled out on him. Since he was a widow already, I was saddened when his children couldn't make it home. I was in tears! And that's just the first part of the movie where I cried. I cried when Frank, that's his character's name, decided to pack his bag and go to his children instead and when he sat there on the front porch of David, his son's house and the son never showed up, I cried again!

I'm not going to tell you what happens to the rest of the movie. You have to watch it yourself. But it's a tear jerker so arm yourselves with lots of tissue! I haven't cried that much for a movie except for My Best Friend's Wedding. It's a good movie to watch especially when you're also a grown up kid already, busy with your own life and you have parents who are already old!

Did You Hear About the Morgans

I saw Did You Hear About the Morgans on DVD last night. Yeah, finally after not being able to catch it in cinemas due to my busy work and school schedule this past three months. It's a really nice chick flick that stars Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker. Actually love those two actors and Hugh, he's definitely my favorite lead actor in a rom-com. The review I read about this movie is correct - Hugh Grant has a way of making you laugh especially when the moment's starting to get cheesy. If you haven't seen it, then you should buy its DVD already. Trust me, it's definitely a feel good movie.
