it’s been a long week for me… there were some not so minor changes at work, specific to our team, that made us all a bit ill-tempered and tired. whenever i’d get home, i’d use my remaining energy to check out anything i can online and then dive into my loving bed. yep, that’s how draining the changes were… hindi na ako makapagblog sa sobrang pagod.

so i thought i’d look for a pick me up… ikot ikot sa mall. went to look at clothing but i’m more into summery clothes; the book i was looking for wasn’t there… so i bought some yellow flowers instead! ito o…


i think they’re really pretty. i chose yellow ones kasi parang ang saya nila tingnan and then i went around our neighborhood to give them to people…


it was very nice to see them smile. tapos nakakatuwa kasi nagtatanong sila kung ano daw ang naisip ko at binigyan ko sila ng bulaklak. hahaha!


so i was left with this pretty small one… yuki seems to like flowers too. so eun, making others smile always seem to wash away the blues. try nyo. hihi. i highly recommend it.

yun lang.

he wrote love on her arms … please view with firefox if you can’t see it, other browsers destroy my codes.

this is just my take on the non-government organization, to write love on her arms or twloha‘s typographical logo. i saw this in one of the shops in eastwood and i thought it was pretty.

di ko alam kung para saan siya before, until that day when i was pestering him, hehehe, and i found the design on his keycard. he has this cute habit of explaining things to me… i must look confused when i’m generally interested in a design. but i learned a lot! twloha is really cool, saving lives is kind of cool.

i did experience extreme pain before enough for dark thoughts but i was saved so this feels like a response to the twhola design. pero feeling ko lang yun, hehe. anyhoo, i didn’t use the same font though, but it’s of the same family. hope you liked it!

yun lang.

hehe late post. ito yung araw na natripan naming lumamon ni maki eh. nagkita muna kami sa sm at dahil dun palang gutom na kami… hello napoli hotpockets! tapos we figured we’d catch a movie at dahil na rin last day ng eiga sai nun, nagpunta kami sa up film center… we had up isaw while waiting for the doors to open, nakakatuwa lang, it’s been years since i’ve been inside the up film center, malamig pa ren. hehehe. sabi ni maki, kung super lapit lang daw ng bahay mo sa up film center, ang sarap daw magmovie marathon. tama naman siya. hehe, more on this in a bit.

eiga sai2

goofing around while waiting in line … ang haba ng pila pero sabi ni maki wala pa daw yun compared sa ibang events. hahaha! but it was so worth the wait naman. bago kami pumasok busog na busog pa ko, maki even gave me a chocolate bar habang nasa pila pero after kong mapanood yung movie… hehehe, heto yung trailer…

the chef of south polar … ganyan talaga yung english title eh, yung japanese should be nankyoku ryorinin. nga pala, i don’t do movie reviews gusto ko lang magshare because i loved the movie so much.

it’s actually based on a japanese coast guard chef who gets sent to the south pole for research and he gets to cook there for more than a year. it’s just amazing how the chef makes the food. grabe sobrang galing, they even have foie gras! and it is funny too even the scenes with heartbreak themes which makes it heartwarming. but i guess, the very reason why i like it is that it reminds me of him. the actor who plays the chef looks so much like him, an older version of him, from the subtle expressions… pati nga buhok.  and the fact that he cooks so well and . i was so amazed. anyhoo, here’s the pv too…

anyhoo, if you’re planning to watch this movie… do not, on any account, watch it when you’re hungry or haven’t eaten. ako nga eh busog na busog nung pumasok, paglabas ko ng up film center, gutom na gutom na ko eh. maki and i ended up eating at mr. kebab at technohub and i finished my order first before maki. take note, super bilis kumain ni maki. hahaha! so eun, looking forward to another food trip with maki and watching eiga sai again.

yun lang. itadakimasu!
