Define Love.

Love is an undefinable feeling.

Are you in love right now?

I will always be in love.

Have you ever been in love before?

That time, I thought it was true love, but looking back, I realize it wasn't. It was just puppy love.

Who was your first love?

God.

How do you know if it's love?

I don't know. You just feel it's love.

Do looks matter?

People claim that they don't, when they actually do.

Who would you go for, the one you love or the one who loves you?

Tough question asked several times. I don't know.

What do you want in a guy?

He has to have a sense of humor, someone who could make me laugh. He has to be smart. He also has to be sensitive to my feelings, down-to-earth, caring, thoughtful, sweet, fun to be with, and honest. And he has to be brave enough to face the parents. Good looks and money are what I consider bonuses.

Do you have a boyfriend?

None at the moment. It's not my priority right now.

How many boyfriends did you have?

None! Well, I almost had one, but I busted him after I really got to know him. Apparently, he's what I call a jerk, and he's not my type at all. He didn't even want to be introduced to my mom, and I don't want that because I feel he's not sincere of his intentions and he's a coward. Amen.

Do you believe first love never dies?

It dies. It's just that it's unforgettable.

Is there a possibility you'll fall in love with your best friend?

Hey, my best friend is a girl, and I love her.

Who's your crush?

No one, if actors don't count.

How do you handle a broken heart?

I don't know yet. My heart hasn't been broken so far. Probably, I would cry it out for a couple of nights and realize it's time to move on. I wish it's that easy.

What's the most important lesson when it comes to loving?

When you love, love with all your heart.

Coming au demain: New Year shoutouts!!!

Today Today

I felt like waiting up for the Blogger homepage to load, so I can type an entry. Nyaha.

First off, about my last entry, it isn't LOVE IS SO CRUEL, but it's LIFE. You might be wondering what makes me say that? Sometimes, I just feel so invisible and alone in the world, that no one loves or cares for me. Sounds dramatic eh? Or sometimes, I feel that I'm not meant to be happy. Yup, I suck. Sucker!! Hahaha.

Today, I hung out at my mader's office. Yeah, she went to the office even though she was on vacation, because she had to find missing containers and ship them off to the US or something. Mostly, I used the net there because it's DSL and it's super fast. We went to SM after and ate at Dimsum, then we browsed around the stores. We went to Ayala after (We're such mall rats) to buy some vegetables and fruits.

Gosh, I didn't realize how many people were sick over the holidays. First off was Ate Marie, who was admitted to the hospital. I really get worried on people being admitted to the hospital. If you saw my entry about Aeriel a few months back, you could see I was freaked when she was admitted to the hospital because of dengue. But Ate M assures me she's okay and she's going home today.

Ate J has German measles, no wonder she had been getting feverish. Good thing she's much better now. I remember a few years back, I had the chicken pox and it was so awful! I hated the way I look, and I hated staying in bed.

Mom is also sick. Not really sick sick, but still sick. She has the flu. I could hear her coughing at night and it sounds really awful.

I would like to sympathize with the affected people of the earthquake and the tidal wave in Asia. So sad, because so many people were affected. But there are some lucky people too, who decided to spend Christmas somewhere else instead of the affected areas. Admittedly, I do not know much on this issue because I haven't been watching TV lately but I really feel so sad for the affected people.

On the bright side, I am going to buy myself a Web Cam! Hooray! I already have enough money, I just have to wait until Uncle Voit fixes our CD Rom so I can install.

Web cam world, here I come!

Outta here!

Collective Thoughts

It has been over twenty-four hours past Christmas Day. I don't know whether I should be happy or not.

My Christmas went absolutely fine. On the 24th, my childless aunt and uncle spent the evening with us because it's just the two of them, and it's just me, my mom and my brother. Our next-door relatives also spent time with us. We went to church around 9PM and the homily lasted so long that it was already past eleven when we went home. During said homily, Arianne, Arnold and I were bored silly, so we made this bet that the person who stood the longest will be given P100. Anne and I won, hehe. When we went home, we ate dessert for our noche buena since we were full from dinner, and drank wine. The wine tasted fine because it's strawberry-flavored. Where the hell do you get strawberry-flavored wine anyways?

We exchanged gifts and... um, I guess I expected too much. Really, Christmas isn't about gift giving, but I still felt disappointed. This has to stop. Mom had bought me a new outfit a few weeks ago as her gift, and since I was the one who picked it, it suited me fine. My uncle O had bought me the said Converse shoes. Anne gave me... make-up! Make-up! I don't wear make-up and I wonder what possessed her to give it. As in, eye-shadow, eyeliner, the works! Arnold gave me a sporty tee. Anne and Arnold's maid, Ivy, gave me a set of hairbrushes. What were unbelievable though, were the gifts my ninangs sent me. Let's not go into details, but let's just say that I could have worn them in the last century or so.

Here are two countdown lists. One is what I wanted for Christmas, and one is my top ten favorite songs last December 24.

TOP TEN THINGS I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS:

10. iPOD- A girl can dream, right? Seriously, this is at the bottom of the list because I have no chance to get one for now. Lucky Carmela gets one.

09. Palm Pilot- *Scoffs* As if mom will get me one! She won't even buy a digital camera. And as if this is useful to me, I probably can't bring this to school, so what's the use?

08. Portable DVD Player- *Patty rethinks if she should have asked Dad for this instead of a videocamera-slash-digicamera*

07. Videocamera- I can list 49 good reasons why I should have this, and one reason why I shouldn't. The first reason that comes to mind is: To record my favorite shows and watch them all over again! Wee!

06. CDs- I love music, duh. If I can, I would raid Odyssey.

05. Clothes & Shoes- My wardrobe is outdated. I need new outfits, hehehe. I'm a girl you know! ;)

04. Phone- Preferably Nokia 6600 or the one that Roxanne from SCQ Reload uses.

03. Books- I'd like to complete the Princess Diaries series, and buy Confessions of a Heiress, Citizen Girl, All-American Girl, Confessions of a Shopaholic, and... I don't know, so many other stuff.

02. Digital Camera- Daddy, where's my digicam?

01. Dog- Preferably one that doesn't lick my eye. Hahahaha! Actually, I want a dog like PaoPao (Heart's dog). It's small and it's cute.

TOP TEN SONGS OF THE MOMENT

10. Baby It's You- Jojo feat. Bow Wow
09. Karma- Alicia Keys
08. Wherever You Are- South Border
07. Lose my Breath- Destiny's Child
06. I Don't Want to be Your Friend- Nina
05. Huwag na Huwag Mong Sasabihin- Kitchie Nadal
04. Rumors- Lindsay Lohan
03. Kailan Pa Ma'y Ikaw- Christian Bautista
02. Tilt Ya Head Back- Nelly feat. Christina Aguilera
01. Bright Lights- Billy Crawford

On the 25th, we went to my grandfather's house. I consider it my permanent home, though I don't actually live there. But since I was little, it has always been there. I would usually play with the streetchildren in lolo's huge field beside the house, or watch cartoons with said streetchildren on his cable TV. At night, I would perch on top of my grandfather's legs while he watches basketball, and I would never forget how he used to feed me my favorite food on this huge bowl. When he sleeps, he's always there beside me. If he wakes up to watch TV and I wake up as well, he willingly misses his game just to tuck me in bed. If there's a brownout, he doesn't stop fanning me until I fall asleep. When I wake up, he would carry me to the sink for a gargle. He was the one who bathed me and changed me and all. See how spoiled I am?

Anyways, we went there for lunch. Then we exchanged gifts. At first, I got Ivy's gift, which was a salad bowl. Uncle Ding suggested we put our received gifts on the floor and on a signal, grab whatever we can. I grabbed this really nice ballpen holder which had an image of Jesus and Mary. Lucky mom got a cellphone holder and a brand-new wallet, as if she doesn't have enough of them! From Uncle Buds, Aunt Nora, Lynn, Nia and Moriah, I got a shirt, but it was their gift for now. Which means I'll get more, yay! :) Aunt Joyce and Uncle Ding gave me an Island Souvenir shirt and a P700 violet Murano charm bracelet. Lolo gave me a thousand bucks.

After our gifts, mom got out the Magic Sing and everyone just started to chill. Some people sang, the kids played with the dogs, cleaned up, or just ate. I got Aunt Joyce's Canon Ixus and started to take pictures of, well, everything.

Mom and I went home at five, then we went to SM to watch So Happy Together. Um, it was okay. I like Kris' role, Lianne, because she's so happy-go-lucky and, I dunno, just happy. The four kids, whom I really don't like, weren't exposed much so it was all right.

Yesterday, I just laid around the house doing absolutely nothing. See, this is what I love about vacation. You do nothing. You don't worry about assignments or projects or quizzes. Ha! In the middle of everything, I just thought of my Math score and my grade. I hope, like, I'd pull up that stupid grade. And my server is still broken, so I really can't surf the net much. Hmph.

One more thing, Mom is on vacation like me, until January 3. Which means I'll be spending an awful lot of time with her.

Yes!

Today, Mom and I went to Ayala. We watched Mano Po 3. Um, it was okay, I guess. Then we went to Dessert Factory and ordered a cheesecake and a clubhouse sandwich (Reminds me a few years ago, on my birthday, I took my barkada out for swimming. When I ordered Waterfront's clubhouse sandwich, Kyla went like, "Clubmouse sandwich?" Hahahaha. I also ordered my much-yearned vanilla-cinnamon smoothie. Yay.

We went to the salon, and mom had her usual manicure and pedicure. Since I was in sneakers, I opted for nail cleaning. Wonderful.

Since the filmfest movies are still showing, I hope I could see Enteng Kabisote.

Hmm, what else? I like the C2 green tea variant. Uncle Buds gave me a free sample, since he works there. I think I gained 10 pounds (Just kiddin'!). I am perpetually annoyed at people who cannot keep promises. Oh, I am feeling a little depressed lately. Fiona, I trust you with what I shared to you, okay? Please do not go screaming (meowing? purring?) it to all the cats and the humans you know, except for the people who know. It's just that... LOVE IS SO CRUEL! Waaa! :(

I am so outta here.

BLOG UPDATE

My exams are finally over! Actually they were over last Friday but my server kept me from blogging about it. Drat.

Let me tell you about my exams:

TUESDAY:

1. Physical Education: I can't believe I pulled this off! Hahahaha! See, I didn't study the day before, so I crammed all the stuff into my head the whole morning, before the test started. And hey, you know what? I think I have a good score on this one. Go figure!

WEDNESDAY:

1. Science 1 & 2: Gad, even though I focused on 2 and it only has 40 items, my mind totally blanked out! As in zilch! I was able to answer the most out of 1, which were over 80 items. Geez. I even crammed just to be able to study the parts I didn't cover. But it was all right. I wasn't worried about Science 1.

2. Music: Oh my lord. I was so focused in studying Science 1&2 and Asian History that I forgot to study music! It's about the kinds of Filipino music. I didn't answer a single thing, except for the National Anthem part. Mostly I made uneducated guesses, but who knows, I may pull it off, right?

3. Asian History: Now this is what I'm worried about! I crammed until midnight and I woke up at 4:30 AM to study more. But after 30 minutes of reading, I fell asleep! Grr, I can never forgive myself for sleeping at five in the morning if I got a low score!

THURSDAY:

1. Math: Grrrrrr!!! The test was totally easy, yet I messed up pretty much everything because of carelessness! Drat! I hate myself. I got most of the terms right, then I wasn't able to finish the radicals part because we're only given 60 minutes to answer, so I skipped some of them off. Guilty. Then test 3, graphing! For heaven's sake I forgot how to solve for "y" until the last minute! And when I did, there wasn't time to graph. Test 4 was easy, just elimination and substitution. That's what I thought. I got number one okay, but I couldn't get number 2. It doesn't gel! My checks are mismatched, so I skipped it off. Mixture problems was easy, but I totally got the answer wrong! Instead of 300 + 100 = 400, mine was 200 + 200 = 400, so it's wrong! *Wants to whack herself* Linear Programming, my expertise (lol), was easy, so I got it. I still can't get over my wrong answers. Damnit.

2. Religion: I didn't study! *Laughs gleefully* but I think I pulled it off. I read the book for a few minutes this morning, and I memorized the seven corporal works of mercy, and it came out! All-right!

3. English: Ahh, my favorite. :) Right. It was hard, and I kept mixing up the past and the present perfect stuff. I hope I was lucky. Or maybe I'm too lucky because Mdme. Z gave us a "Christmas bonus", she gave us choices for that hard test! Yehey! But finding the meaning to the haiku was hard.

FRIDAY:

1. Filipino: Hehe, it wasn't that hard, considering I only read the summary of the book! Hahaha! But the talasalitaan was hard. My answers there were mostly uneducated guesses. I used common sense in answering the other questions, like who said who, and what's being pertained, and etc.

2. THE: I did not study this at all, until 5 am of the test day itself! Hehehe! It was easy, really. You just had to memorize some terms, memorize the food pyramid and memorize the formula in solving for the IBW (Oh yeah, more Math)


After that, I was free! Done!! No more exams! Yay! Pearl and I went to the mall for some serious Christmas shopping. I had P700++ in my pocket, so I bought Sherry, my manita Noelle, my mother and my brother gifts. I had, like, P100 left in my pocket (because of food, transportation fare, etc.) My feet were literally aching. Ouch.

I did my written report in the evening. I was amazed at myself that I pulled it off in an hour! How the hell did I do that? I had not even started on it, and now, cha-daa! It's there. I interviewed Uncle O. :)

Saturday, we had our Christmas party! I went to school early, then we had the usual mass. Then we retreated to our classrooms and started to disco! It was cut off though, when my teacher arrived. We started the games! I only participated in the longest line (It's a game where you try to make the longest line out of anything you can find, like your school uniform, for example). Our team lost. Hehe. After that, we played weirdest dresser (my own term). There were four teams, who had to choose a person. They would alter her uniform into something weird, then they had to model on the platform. Noelle won. She had to parade in the third-floor corridor! Hahaha! Then the others played Twister until our food from KFC arrived! Yay!

It was also my teacher's birthday, and as a class tradition, we punk'd her. Some girls stepped on the platform and asked some people to release all their frustrations to other people, so that there would be no more HD (Hidden Dumot). Sherry, probably the most outspoken girl in the class, and Danielle, the class president, said that Mdm. Racal was OA, etc. They were blabbering for a few minutes, then Siao went up the platform, put her arms around Mdme, and silently counted to three. Everyone shouted "VICTIM!" Hehe, I swear, Mdm. was crying! Not because of what Sherry and Danielle said, but the effort we did. Nyaha.

And then we exchanged gifts. My manita was Tanya (I knew it!) and she gave me a nice set of bandanas from Bench. I love them! Thanks Tanya! I got Noelle, ironically, a gift set from Baby Bench. It contains cologne, powder, baby oil and lotion. I left the price tag to leave Noelle guilty. Hehe, joke.

As we gathered for the prizes, Pearl just grabbed my arm and led me to the doorway, to probably one of the most pleasant surprises. Guess who were standing there? It was Dannica, Noreen and Kyla! I never expected they'd come, considering that it was always me and Pearl who goes to them. Dannica just hugged me and said she was so sorry, and Kyla did the same. Wow. I felt so elated! Sorry if I may sound like a triple-class dork but I was touched at the effort.

After the giveaways were given (It was nice of Mdme. Racal, actually, even if it was just candy), we were dismissed.

No, I didn't go home immediately. I went to the grade school department and surprised my good friend Ate Rina. Poor teacher, the 6A people left her with the mess. I helped her out as we talked. It was so long since I talked to her. We exchanged stories as she cleaned and packed the gifts she received from her students.

I must have given 20 presents at the party. Pearl, Meg, Daryl, Akkie, Aeriel, Noreen, Kyla (I asked Noreen to give it to her before she went to me), Siao, Helen, Ate Rina, Charisse, Alyssa, Ate Marie and Kathleen got special, burned CDs with love songs. For Sherry, who I knew would not appreciate love songs, I got a picture frame, and you know what I got Noelle already.

Here are the gifts I received yesterday:

1. Charisse- piggie picture frame from Blue Magic! I was wondering what photo would I place there.

2. Alyssa- Blush perfume from Penshoppe

3. Pearl- Candy magazine

4. Ate Rina- a box of brownies, though it's not her real gift

5. Daryl- She got me and Pearl matching Patrick Star keychains!

6. Akkie- Lip gloss


These are the people who would give me gifts during the break/when school comes back:

1. Noreen

2. Dannica

3. Sherry

4. Ate Rina

5. Ate Marie

6. Aeriel

Here are the people I'm still wondering if they'll give me presents (*Snorts* call me selfish):

1. Kyla

2. Helen

Of course, gifts from anyone are ALWAYS welcome. ;)

I dropped by National Book Store before I got home and bought SSM and a Christmas card for my grandfather, who I love so much.

And guess what? Uncle Owen cut my hair! *Dances to "She Bangs"* Yup, I have bothersome bangs again. I don't know what possessed him to do it. I don't know what possessed me to let him do it! My maid commented I look like Rachelle Ann Go. My uncle claimed his inspiration for my bangs were Sarah Geronimo and Marla Boyd (From SCQ2). It's not that my mom commented that he (she?) just carelessly cut my hair. It's not that I look bad. Well, admittedly I look trendy and cool, but bangs are bothersome, okay? They take forever to grow out. They make hair care a chore. I guess I'll have to deal with it while it's there, right? But it's a nice change. I was getting bored with my hair anyways and I wanted a new look. BUT still, it's bangs!!!

I wanted to spend Christmas in Baguio, but Mom claims there's still meningococcemia there, and we're having lunch on the 25th in my grandfather's house in Bulacao (It's not Bulacan). If Faye's family made it, then it will be the first time in history (LOL) that the entire family would be spending Christmas together.

By the way, I asked my mother (Rather jokingly) about daddy giving me a gift. She called his secretary, and his secretary said I should write a letter. Y'know, things like "How are you?" and "Hope you're doing okay." etc.

My letter probably was like this (I forgot how it went like):

Dear Daddy,

I want to greet you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hopefully you would be prosperous. So how are you? I hope you're doing well, and that you were able to make the most out of this year. By the way,thank you for paying my school tuition fee every grading period. I also hope you would grant me and Nico's Christmas wishes. I "just" like a digital camera, preferably also a video camera, because it would be useful and because I'm such a gadget freak.

Patricia


Childish, I know. Lame, I know. But what am I supposed to say to this guy whom I haven't seen for so long? Sana we were close, but we're not.

My brother's letter probably went like this (I also forgot how it went like):

Dear Daddy,

I am Nico, your son. How are you? I miss you. Please buy me Zoids and Masked Rider. I love you.

Nico


Hehe, isn't it cute? My mom totally laughed at the "I am Nico, your son." Duh! :)

Gee, this is getting long. I guess I had a lot to say.

See you until next post! May you have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Love,

Patty

*Drools* Isn't it gorgeous? That's what I'm going to save up for next year.

And here is what I got:



But who's complaining anyways? I love my new shoes!

Welcome to My Life

I am currently listening to this song now:

Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place?
Like somehow you just don't belong?
And no one understands you?

Do you ever wanna run away?
Do you lock yourself in your room?
With the radio on turned up so loud
That no one hears you screaming?

No you don't know what it's like
When nothing feels alright
You don't know what it's like to be like me

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked
When you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
When no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it's like

Welcome to my life

Do you wanna be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more
Before your life is over

Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With the big fake smiles and stupid lies
But deep inside you're bleeding

No you don?t know what it's like
When nothing feels alright
You don't know what it's like to be like me

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked
When you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
When no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it?s like

Welcome to my life

No one ever lies straight to your face
And no one ever stabbed you in the back
You might think I'm happy
But I'm not gonna be ok

Everybody always gave you what you wanted
You never had to work it was always there
You don't know what it's like
What it's like

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked
When you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
When no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it's like

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked
When you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
When no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it's like

Welcome to my life

Welcome to my life

Welcome to my life


So there, I have a new blog template. Applause please!

I said to myself that I would remain faithful to my "Sweet Dreams" skin, but I couldn't resist this! It's cool, and it looks clearer to me. And as if you don't know me! So, is it grool?

Here is my unpublished entry the other day and yesterday.


December 08, 2004

.:: I just finished my film review in English. It's about the long Indian movie. Seriously, I am amazed how I squeezed 224 minutes in a five-sentenced summary. I think I did a great job. I have to... I want to, because I want to make up for the 86 on my card. I don't know what the hell happened! First grading, I was sloppy. I didn't even listen to the teachers much, just doodled on my book. I did well in the quizzes, and in the exam. I got a 90! Second grading, only a few classes because of Intramurals practice, my grade slipped to 86?! I can't believe it. I dream of pulling it back up, at least 88. I think I can, because Zaldumbide (It's her second time around! We already have a total of 7 teacher-changes) is giving quizzes on spelling words. I am good in spelling!

.:: We will have our periodical exams next week, on the 15th, the 16th, and the 17th. On the 15th, I will have Science 1&2, Music and SS (Asian History). On the 16th, I have Math, CLF and English. On the 17th, I have Filipino and THE. Good grief, I am so glad Math and Science don't go together! I have two Science tests to study for, and long ones at that! There's really not much in Music, but I have to study well on SS! Lucky for me, Math, CLF and English are together. Except for Math, they are the easiest subjects! Well, I've been doing better in Math so I think it's easy too. For once I'm not worried! THE is easy, but Filipino will be a pain in my neck once again. Imagine, Chapters 11-28! Oh my gosh. And if that's not enough, I have a test in Science 2 and a 60-100 item test in Filipino on Monday! Wonderful. I have to tell Ate Annabelle we have to start tutoring, maybe by tomorrow!

.:: My uncle, my brother and I went to Church today (I can hear you gasp!). We just prayed, lit some candles and went to SM, then to Ayala. I got new Chuck Taylors! Yipee! They're blue and they're low-cut. Yes! We also ate at McDo. Yum.

.:: Lately, I've been looking in the mirror, and I noticed I grew some bulges on my tummy. Yaaa! My uncle told me the same today in McDo. I can't help it! As if cafeteria food is yummy. It makes me eat junk food when I go home. And I eat dinner. And I drink milk. And I'm getting fat! Hahaha. I haven't been swimming or playing badminton lately, so maybe that's it. My uncle made me go on a diet. No meat! Just chicken without skin and rice! What?! No way!! Don't tell me I'm supposed to pig out on the KFC salad now, eh? Shoot.

.:: I am already bankrupt! In fact, I don't even have money to buy load! I just spent around P500 on gifts, and I have not bought Mom a gift yet. What the hell do I get her? Who else do I need to give gifts?

December 09, 2004

.:: I watched RYPIT's (Repertory of Young Professionals in Theatre) production of Amahl today, and though there were a few inconsistencies, I loved it! My pal Abby is there as the servant. Cool eh? And then, I dunno, I just wanted to be part of the production, as in join RYPIT! Moi? Hahaha! As if I can. I probably can, but I have school and everything! Heck!

.:: There's a sore on my mouth, and it's painful! I don't know how the hell I got it, but it better cure soon. And there's this invisible thing on my cheek. You can't see it, but for me, when I just touch it, it hurts. It's like a node or something. Blah.

.:: I made shopping plans with Pearl-la-loo. We're going to Ayala after our finals and shop shop shop! She's gonna buy things for her manita and all, and this would be the perfect time to buy Mom something. And the perfect time to grab a frappe in Starbucks.

.:: I have a Math test tomorrow and I'm not studying. Jeez, you'd think that just because I did well in my previous exam (Perfect! Yipee!), I'd quit studying. I know I should study to pull that grade up, but I'm feeling lazy. Besides, the smarties in our class do not even understand it.

.:: I am making up for my grades this semester. As in. I just called Ate Annabelle and asked her when she's free to tutor me. She has practicum, so it will be kind of hard. I made plans for tutorial over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday. If possible, on Tuesday to Thursday afternoons. I am having trouble in Science. So many terms to memorize. And also in Filipino. Oh, right, you know about this? In short... I'd be studying the whole weekend. Bahala mo diha na di mag-tu-on! Bwahahaha!

.:: I just realized that I miss so many people! I miss them a lot. To all the people I miss (C'mon, you know who you are!), give me a call or something, will you?

.:: I am worrying on how to get Kath her gift. I am not an expert on sending packages to Manila, more or less the fees they ask. Pearl said LBC is expensive, but it's the only store I can see! I am getting her a CD. Oops, no telling! So, if anyone knows how to send packages cheap, tell me.

.:: I am worrying on my written report. Where the hell do I find someone who's not Christian?! The Philippines is a Christian country! And it's due on the 17th! And furthermore, I am going to study over the weekend (Seriously) with Ate Annabelle, so how do I fit my report in? Any Muslims, anyone? Is there a trip to Taoist Temple, reloaded?

.:: I have been typing this fifteen minutes ago, and I still have not started my Math. Darn.

All I Want for Christmas

"Christmas is just around the corner," as most people say. And so, I've compiled a list of things that I want to happen. Yes, I am not kidding! These may seem our-of-the-world or so, but anyways...

1. ...that the Philippines will be a united country, regardless if we are an archipelago
2. ...that the economy of the Philippines will be better
3. ...that the Philippines will attract more tourists and businessmen so that we'll be raking in money (haha)
4. ...that Cebu will drug-free
5. ...that the corrupt officials will realize the wrong that they are doing
6. ...that those who are seeking justice, dead or alive, will finally get it
7. ...that the victims of natural calamities will ALL be helped by the government. I mean, they do get helped, but I really mean ALL
8. ...that the government will build houses for the homeless people
9. ...that people would be generous to donate bundles of joy, like food and clothes, to the poor people and to victims of natural calamities
10. ...that the streetchildren will have a good education
11. ...that the dying and the sickly people in the streets be helped
12. ...that jobless people will have a job
13. ...that GMA will know what she has to do to fulfill these, and her 10-point agenda! Ahahaha!
14. ...that there will be a cure for incurable illnesses, like cancer. We probably do not realize how many people we lose due to cancer.
15. ...that people will stop illegal logging
16. ...that robbers, kidnappers, murderers and drug addicts will finally bump their head and realize what they've been doing. In short, WAKE UP AND STOP WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
17. ...that married couples will fulfill their vows, especially the "TILL DEATH DO US PART" part. Or else, they should say, "Till Annulment Do Us Part." They can work things out if they tried, and if they fight like cats and dogs, they should grow up
18. ...that rich people will put their money to good use
19. ...that government officials will not fight against each other, but unite to make this country a better place.

(More coming up)

The Top Four Places I Dream on Visiting

Here are a few places I would love to visit in the near future:

1. Malapascua Island

I stepped on this land for the first and the only time when I was eleven. It was such a memorable experience for me because it was my first time in so many years to ride a small boat. We had, like, a five-hour car trip to Maya, then rode a boat for 20-30 minutes. We arrived on the island at around ten and we spent the whole day swimming. We were checked-in at this pretty shorefront resort. The waters were cool and clear, and we could even see schools of fish! There was also this floating bar in the middle of the sea. How cool is that? Sad to say, we only stayed there for a night. It wasn't enough, for me.

Here are some photos I nicked from someone:









2. Manila

I was able to go to Manila when I was seven. I love the city! There were so many fun things to do! I had fun shopping in the malls, and running around Toy Kingdom, undoubtedly bigger than SM Cebu's branch! It's just so exciting, and big, and clearly has adventure in store. I was even able to go to the ABS-CBN Compound in QC because my aunt used to work there. I met Kris Aquino, Noli de Castro and more stars. It was a great experience. My entire Manila trip was a great experience. Now, I want to go there, because I, like, have so many people I want to meet!

3. Baguio

Shoot. We already made plans to go to Baguio for Christmas (It never seems to happen!!), and this year we might not be able to push through the plan as well, as there are still several cases of meningococcemia. Darn! Darn!!!!!!!!! I love this place. I want to go horseback riding, like before. Hey, maybe I might meet my old friend, Starfire again! She's this horse I rode in Baguio, and I just named her Starfire because she's white, and she has an orange star on her head. Then I want to go strawberry-picking (Is that what you call it?). I did so before. We picked strawberries in a strawberry field, and it was so much fun! We had the freshest strawberries ever! And of course, the UKAY UKAY!!! Before, I don't usually care about the ukay, but not anymore! They say that there's so many things you could buy in there!

4. Paris, France

Yes, I want to go to Paris even before Rugrats in Paris, Lovers in Paris, that Olsen Twins movie in Paris and The Da Vinci Code came out! I want to see the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum! Paris is such a romantic city, though I only know a little bit about it.
