i’ve had weird embarassing experiences with weddings before but i’m so glad i decided to attend

paw’s wedding … which is the most heartwarming event i’ve ever been to yet. i was teary eyed when paw started walking down the aisle. aslo, paw and jacky, her new husband, shared the simplest but cutest kiss i’ve seen.

paw and i have been classmates during college and belonged to a group called the ‘mean girls’. we’re not really mean though, it’s an inside joke. fortunately some of the other members were able to come too…

mean girls … cons was part of the entourage so she had to sit up front but i was able to take pixxors with maya, the loudest and wackiest in the group and ruch, who’s kind of shy most of the time but she’s got that inner spunk.

after the wedding ceremony, we chilled a bit at starbucks because the reception wasn’t until two hours later, which is the very reason i decided to wear…

chucks … hahaha! i picked up a blue violet dress at the mall a week back but after reviewing the wedding and reception schedules, which had a large interval, i decided that i will not let my feet die. bought ribbons though in place of the dirty white shoelaces. took a pixxor with cons’ bouquet, which i was admiring the whole time… thought it was pretty. after a few hours of chugging tea and coffee we were off to…

gloria maris chinese restaurant … there were photobooths and drawing activities and of course food… but i was only able to take a picture of some of the refreshments because we shared a table with some teachers and an elegant chinese couple, and since we were younger we allowed them to get the food first.

they served dish after dish after dish after dish… akala ko wala ng katapusan! hahaha! we had different kinds of meat, fish, seafood, soup, mushroom, and noodles, but the best for me of course was dessert! gloria maris has the best mango sago i’ve ever had!

and since we can’t get too close to the newlyweds since they were so busy, we…

went to the restroom in droves … this is what girls really do inside the restroom, camwhoring. lol. and when all the singing and merriment was over, the mean girls went home, well to cons’ place… hehe.

here’s a shoutout to paw and jacky! thanks for inviting me to your wedding, because of it i realized that love really does exist. i hope you’ll live happily ever after and make supercute babies and make us godmothers, kk? more pixxors here.

yun lang.

i found God

in the corner of 7th and 8th p. tuason… i work in one of the buildings there and there’s really no spectacular view as the area’s littered with odd structures. however, to one side of our building, you’d see a lit cross.

maybe it’s a sort of memo from God… in a way that it reminds me that even in the dark there’s that someone who’s always there for me and who would keep me safe, a reminder that i am loved.

yun lang.

i was craving for something sweet so i bought a jar of nutella… which is actually the next best thing after warm hugs and maybe, err, bacon. hahaha! but it certainly puts a smile on my face. it is no doubt one of the best things in life. there’s something comforting about it, it’s like edible sunshine in a jar. pwedeng lamunin mag-isa pero it goes with other nice things too like pancakes and cookies and marshmallows.


spread the love

the melai way of eating it… i couldn’t resist making a heart when i opened it. do you do this with your spreads too? hihihi. at siyempre, after that share it with someone you love.

yun lang.

what i thought would have been one of my happiest birthdays turned out to be one of the saddest. i had plans, i usually do… but something had happened and i’d decided not to push through with those plans… pakiramdam ko boss fight na talaga yung birthday ko. ang hirap pala mag-isip matapos masira yung mga plano.

i wore my favorite red dress and heels that morning… i had to slave off say around 6.5 hours–of my birthday–although my team mates made me feel so much better spamming glorious pictures of cakes and they even waited for me for lunch.

the commute home was uneventful… nagpahinga lang ako ng konti pagkauwi ko pagkatapos nagdecide na kong imeet si maki. i decided to forego the dress and wear an old red shirt, shorts, at ang mahiwagang bota ni ms. montano. hahaha. that’s what miming calls my red boots. grabe, i’m talking about what i wore. ganyan siya kalungkot. lol. i think maki was amused with the boots though. birthday ko, suot ko trip ko. hehehe.

nakakatuwa naman kase si shane din pumunta… wala rin pala siyang plano. sabay nga kasi kami ng birthday. we horked down pasta, something i’d had wanted for my birthday since the first of july and engrossed ourselves in a bit of window shopping. i loved this part because we get to go to so many fancy shops and… annoy the sales ladies. when shane left, nanood na kami ni maki ng captain america. it was fun pointing out parts where chris evans’ head weren’t proportionate to his body double… but hey… ang gwapo pa rin nya!

e bakit parang masaya? i admit i was distracted for a while… pero nung umalis si maki, nalungkot na naman ako. naalala naman niya ako and he greeted me. but i wish i saw him. i was awake till 12 midnight kasi ako nga si cindermelai eh, kaya lang walang tagasuot nung bota ko. haha. if only things had been different… kaya lang dumating na nga yung hating-gabi. tapos na yung birthday ko…

so kumuha nalang ako ng kutsilyo at…


melaicake … it’s my birthday cake! a gift from maki. hehehe. oks ba! i would like to thank all those who greeted me, those who remembered, to all my friends and loved ones… 26 years na ko sa earth! i labshu all!

my boss gave me some stickers and old colored paper lying around the office. hahaha, parang kids lang. i thought i’d play with the facebook tag thing again. kasi diba makikita mo yung last five pixxors na nakatag sayo. nung una kase naghello ako… so hehe, eun made some cut outs, camwhored, and tagged myself.


anyhoo, if you’re interested the font is called monkey love at kung medyo bulag din kayong tulad ko, here are the pixxors that i used…


chose the word love and added an exclamation point… dahil in love ako? baka nga. i love… paper! hahaha! love is such a complex word and could mean so many things at baka humaba pa tong post na to if i expounded on that. essay yun kung essay! so bilang pangwakas nalang, sabi nga ni rico abelardo… manatiling masaya at higit sa lahat magpatuloy sa pagmamahal, kkk?

yun lang.

since napakacheesy ko na daw, i decided not to do anything heart themed for valentine’s day. i wanted something sensible at para maiba na rin, kasi i’m pretty sure na puro ‘i love you’ ang bukambibig ng mga tao ngayon. hehehe. so here’s my way of saying i love you on this day…

a hot cup of love

i dropped by the local starbucks to get some brewed coffee to hand to you guys but “Careful, the beverage you’re about to enjoy is extremely hot.” ahihi, this is also dedicated to my ever-handsome-three-thirty-am-on-the-dot-sweet-smile inspiration (see,cheese balls. hahaha!) i hope i made you smile. happy valentines day!

yun lang.

wrap! twenty and ten was an extremely crazy year. there were lots of fun moments and there were setbacks too. but here are some high lights of my year.

some people left, some stayed by my side, others came back…and new ones came! … the significant people i met this year were marv and joey ; si sweetheart dave at neechan jories ;  lani and baneee, sabi ko naman eh, masarap ang chicharong bulaklak ; my little siopao ; my new mom ; at siyempre, my big siopao! sino siya at gaano kaimportante? hehehe, makikilala niyo rin siya… importante? let’s just say na siya ang wallpaper sa cellphone at desktop ko. nyahahaha!

but there are people i’m missing so badly … paris, hugot muna. ilibre mo na ko dahil nanjan ka na daw sa fonality. hehehe. ; jang… nasan na yung party? diyan nalang tayo sa fieldwork chenes mo. hehehe. ; may-anne and cha, pretty little dolls, master melai misses you pati yung pet nyong si karlo, ahahaha. but anyhoo, no matter where life takes you… dito lang ako, lol.

i tried my hand at business but… nyahahaha. ahm, and i found out i was better off at the art department. at dun nga ako nagfocus ng lakas nalang. it’s the best outlet for me. my font collection is growing! at kaya ko palang gumawa ng mga bagay bagay. when i get compliments from the stuff i modded, mostly the rings, sobrang masaya ako. ah honga pala, i got back into reading, share nyo naman books niyo saken. kung music naman, i was given a guitar for my birthday, sana po magkaroon lang ng patience yung mga nagtuturo sakin. and finally, i enjoyed dancing for a bit din. got a swollen rib but i got to wear shorts to work. hehehe.

i had a crazy hater … at take note, crazy is an understatement. ok lang, mabilis naman ang karma niya. isang one time big time karma pa. sa akin ang huling halakhak. muhahahahahahahahahahaha… hahahahahaha!

i won a raffle … hahahaha! oh yes, and endless teasing and patting on the head. ok… so i won this at work and it’s a spa pampering package. i win weird stuff at raffles and it reminded me of the spa thingy we had at tagaytay during one of my birthdays. gonna share it with max since miming’s too finicky about girl stuff. o bebs, kelan tayo magpapalibag? wahahaha.

a bit of happiness … yung paglabas namin nila maki at max… sama na rin si miming kahit paminsan minsan lang. aba sarap kaya ng isaw. yung mga tawanan, yung mga iyakan. yung comedy moments ko. yung hugs niyo… 

it’s a wrap! now we’re on a roll! … ahahaha, yezzz, i still play this.

roll! so ano na ang plano ni melaikick? eh di magpapakasaya! nyahaha. o ayan ha.

more art work … i want to take pixxors! lots of pixxors! i need skillz for this. i might start by late january or early february. tapos drawing, paper craft, and typography … planning to combine all media. kasi naman photoshop, why u no cooperate?

cook, eat out, at movies … baka pwede naman tayong magbowling? namimiss ko na yun eh. i’ve kind of forgotten about these things, di nga ako naggrocery eh. hehehe, dami kong natututunan sa big siopao ko. *u* ahihihi.

be a big girl … ahm hahaha, i cannot do anything with how i look like a high school student at times. and i would not change my personality for anyone pero i’m working on my emotional maturity and financial stability, lagi nalang ako pinapagalitan ni max. si max yan ha. oha!

more happy, period. game na? one last huzzah for 2010!

yun lang.
