i think it’s becoming a habit of mine to travel while i have school.
- cebu for sinulog
- guam just to use our visa
- and last february 22-26, singapore!
haha i won that for my mom from one of cebu pac’s games.
obligatory photo with the merlion lololol
sentowsuuuuhhh! random fact #78: by chance, i always find myself going to a beach when traveling but i’ve only gone twice to the beach in our country. :\
red light district (:
super cool light and water show.
random fact #79: super love sunsets, light photography, and skylines.
let me be the one who calls you baby all the time.
random fact #77: i always used to ask him to get a haircut like the hairstyle he had when we were in 4th year highschool. he finally had one 3 years after, and then i missed his long hair. but he never grew it this long again. to top that, he went bald. -.- ugh. just look at how guapo he is with long hair. zz
why thankyou shakey’s for being late and bringing us free dinner. how thoughtful of you! lol. the thing about me and food service is that i never settle for less than what i’m paying for. so if the food arrives late, if it’s served late, if i find hair in it, if it’s cold, if the soda’s watered down, if i am not satisfied, i will complain. and i guarantee you will regret giving below par service.
on a lighter note: 2013’s looking goooood!
random fact #75: i am definitely not one to mess with when hungry
meet guam and the view i always woke up to: clear waters and white sand.
this is tinsley, my board. it’s named after dmb’s violinist who composed their song satellite.
random fact #73: i skate.
waiting at kmart for our ride.
we went to two lover’s point. a legendary cliff where two pursued lovers jumped off of.
rather than jumping to their death, couples who visit the site bring padlocks and write their names with their anniversary on it, attach them to the fence, and then proceeds to throw away the key over the cliff as a symbol of their eternal love.
will definitely go back with y to do this lol
random fact #74: i am dead scared of heights. so you can just imagine how terrified i was when i tried to look down from the very edge of that 378-foot cliff.
and this is the photo i struggled to take. please do take time to appreciate it.
then we went to a secluded beach.
people should learn to let go. just like the ocean leaves the shore and comes back everytime because that’s how it was made.
after that, we wend off-road-ing. lol
sorry i wasn’t able to take a good picture of how steep that hill was
on the way home from the restaurant. road at the back of jeff’s pick-up! it was my infinite moment lol
oh guam, i miss you everyday; it hurts.
i will come back for you, guam. —like the waves will always come back to shore.
OTHER PHOTOS PROPERTY OF CHRISSIE PERIA.
so do you remember? with your white dress on, it was the end of december. count the days till dawn.
no, i didn’t get married. lol. on the 18th of december, half past 8 in the morning, at santa maria goretti parish, paco manila, my cousin finally got married to her significant other. i was the one and only bridesmaid for the second time around, and i just happened to be the impromptu official videographer for her special day — and yes, i did it without a team. all the photos of the wedding in this post are all screen caps of my videos (hence the poor quality). the only stills here are of the pre-nuptials and reception. enjoy!
lol just look at how irritated my mom is!
attend a wedding together ☑. this kid came to our house at 5:30 in the morning to join the family. so proud of the both of us for waking up early hehehe
dear Lord, thank You for all the blessings.
hehehehe the three best men in my life. yaku, yakee, and dada (behind the camera)
“ayoko ng mag attend ulit ng wedding. seryoso. promise. next na wedding na aattend-an ko, wedding na natin.” -y (we’re definitely not morning people lol)
random fact #70: the only other people i trust to take pictures for me would be my three men: dada, yaku, and yakee
random fact #71: this is my first time to cover a wedding
random fact #72: first time to attend a wedding together

oh and look! our school decided to give out soft copies of our x-rays in a cd instead of the huge hard copy that was such a hassle to bring with you all day. and they just happened to do this on my last year in college. great. thanks a lot. lol. say hello to my dextroscoliosis!
random fact #68: last two terms in college!
random fact #69: i obviously have scolio lol
basagan + sabogan nights with these lovely people again!
meet our cinderella!
upper left: red. lol.
just look at our nguso! so pointy
i always enjoy time spent with these people. i used to enjoy big parties with a lot of people and used to think “the more the merrier”. but really, the less company, the better quality time.
random fact #66: aileen, my foofie, the one in white, she’s our cinderella. lol. despite her age, she ALWAYS has to go home on or before 12. there were several instances when her parents didn’t even warn her, they’d just show up where we were and pick her up. that included this night. lol. drugs sex alcohol and home before 12. such a bad ass my foofie is!
random fact #67: despite having fair skin, i never turn red. well atleast not until alcohol intoxication. lol. imagine the excitement i felt the first time i was told my cheeks were red when i had my 6th bottle of tanduay ice back when i was still a frosh in college. oh those days hahaha.
15 day boyfriend challenge: day 14| do you and your boyfriend have a “song”? if so, what is it?
we have loooooads of songs! he’s the type of guy who loves dedicating songs to me. but our ultimate song would definitely be wonderwall — the one covered by cartel. (:
random fact #65: we’re music junkies
15 day boyfriend challenge: day 13| what’s the last gift you gave them?
technically this scrapbook, an edited video of us, and a cupcake. hahaha. my anniversary gifts for him last 11/11 (:
and i’m just about to give him a new gift tomorrow! a gray hoodie. yay!
random fact #63: i am amazed at how talented and creative i am. lol.
random fact #64: i love giving gifts!
“bitch” “chicks” two degrading terms i dislike with a passion. lol.
i used to take being called a bitch as a compliment. it made me feel superior and that everyone ought to know i’m someone they shouldn’t mess with. now being called a bitch feels degrading. i mean, just by hearing the term “bitch” makes me think of highschool girls who get them selves in cheap petty cat fights with all the name calling and the works.
i can still very much be feared and respected without being known as a bitch. i am one classy woman who can hurt anyone twice as much with wisely constructed arguments than with my fists — without cussing. don’t get me wrong tho, i can put up a good physical fight too. (only when needed ofcourse. self defense is essential lol)
when it comes to the term “chicks” tho, i don’t take that as a compliment too. to me, it’s like a downgrade to being called beautiful. haha.
i don’t know where this is all coming from but maybe i just learned from how yakee sees and treats me. aside from calling me beautiful/maganda (which i still am not used to, since he looks more of a girl than me -_-), we had a conversation waaaay back about his ex calling me a bitch
k: bitch pala ‘ko babe eh! HAHAHA
y: wag mo nga sabihin yan! kung bitch ka, eh di ano ako?? bagay sa bitch??
HAHAHAHA how cute.
i dunno, if you wanna be known as the “crazy bitch” or be called “chicks”, that’s you. i’d rather much be known classy and called beautiful — but that’s just me. (;
(explanation behind the photo: i swear, i cannot take seeing girls even TRY to flirt with my boyfriend. lol i was looking directly at the girl who’s been eyeing y. i’m glad she got the message. lol. do not mess with me.)
meet my kuyas. the two paolos (paolo p + pao m) and bryan. pao and i go way back in highschool. the other two kuyas, i just met in college through pao. la salle used to have “happy thursdays” where a lot of students go out and drink after a week of school since lasallians don’t have classes on fridays. me and my friends almost always used to go to happy thursdays at GP, beach and rooftop (drinking places near school). i met paolo and bryan at GP through pao, as i’ve mentioned — together with their other friends zim, lowie, gervy, wang, etc. etc.
from the time i met them, drinking with them on happy thursdays became a regular thing. i guess they became my kuyas since out of all the boys, they annoyed the life out of me more and they also took care of me more even if i didn’t need taking care of. zz.
indeed they became more like big brothers than drinking buddies. hanging out with each other during breaks, eating together, going to parties. they even went to my surprise debut! all the way from pasig and cavite, to alabang. (:
random fact #61: i am these boys’ “little sistarr” “katy perry” “katrina” etc.
random fact #62: my formspring was always loaded with questions and rants from haters because of paolo. obviously jealous girls crushing hard on paolo. zzzz.
15 day boyfriend challenge: day 10| do you own anything of theirs?
yes. like this white shirt! ..and several other tops of his. hahaha! a polo shirt, longsleeves, a bunch of other shirts, and also boxers!
random fact #60: we share tops since we’re of the same size.
celebrated james’ birthday on september 14.
mi & bebs, foof & bebs, the bebiboy & bebs
now get tired of my face since you’ve been seeing a lot of my friends’. hahaha just look at that pretty face! lol.
the girlfriend and bestfriend!
random fact #55: slowly believing what yakee has been telling me for years now. i look prettier without make up. hehehe. tho the only make up i’ve ever regularly used was eyeliner and blush on. no powder, foundation, bb cream, eye shadow.. uh etc. lol.
random fact #56: james and i have known each other since grade 5. i forgot when we started calling each other “bebe/bebs”
random fact #57: james and yakee were my classmates in grade 6. they were bestfriends and they’ve always irritated the life out of me then. who would’ve thought yakee and i would get ourselves into a relationship, and james and i would end up being bestfriends? lol.
random fact #58: in hs, we used to celebrate birthdays with the whole barkada. all 40++ of us. over the years, we learned that some friends really do fall by the wayside.
random fact #59: we’re all bestfriends. yes, my boyfriend’s bestfriends with my bestfriends too. (:
15 day boyfriend challenge: day 9| how long do you see you and your boyfriend being together?
wow. i don’t know what else is in store for me and him, but ofcourse i’d like to think we’re for ever. i mean, who would get their selves in a relationship knowing it wouldn’t work to last? what i am certain of is that i’d do all i can to hold on to this, no matter what. (:
random fact #54: we never really said “forever”. we say “for ever”. he’s the one who came up with it. and i’ve noticed that there are instances where “for ever” is used instead of “forever”, like in misalletes in church! if you look it up, “as two words, “for ever” is an expression meaning for all future time”
