2017 Project 365, Day 6: Vince & Kath & James

Photo #6: January 6

First date of the year. ^^ We watched “Vince and Kath and James”! I didn’t expect to cry ah! Anyway, I’ve been interested to see more of Joshua Garcia since I caught a glimpse of him on Pinoy Big Brother; hope to bump into him at ABS in the future! Hihi!  John Lloyd junior!

p.s. shouldn’t bruises appear a day or two after you get injured? In this movie, they appear instantly haha!

Thank You, 2016!

Another year is about to end, which means it’s time for me to write something lengthier than usual. Facebook’s On This Day feature allowed me to look back through my old year-end posts, and I noticed these recurring themes: food, friends, family, and fun!

FOOD

In recent years, Instagrammers have been posting their best 9 pictures, especially from October to December. I generated mine earlier, and it’s composed of mostly food shots! During the first part of 2016, I attended foodie events on almost a weekly basis, which made me constantly have content for my YouTube channel. Thank you to all the restaurant owners and managers who believe in our capacity to help them, and for the great food, of course!

FRIENDS

Food is best shared with friends, right? This year, some people I met through Zomato decided to form The Food Crawlers. Although we have different roles, – writers, photographers, vloggers – one thing we have in common is our love for food! I particularly value the ideas they have for my vlogs, especially when they gamely participate in them! They’re such creative, witty, and fun people to be with! I value them a lot, especially Mickey and Richard!

The Food Crawlers!

Another group of friends I am grateful for are my fellow RareJob tutors (and also some of the staff), particularly the “Antwehs and Titas.” They are the kind of people you’d very much want to work with because they continuously lift you up with inspiring stories, contagious laughter, and motivational advice! No crab mentality at all! Although our job is home-based, it feels like we’re one huge happy family thanks to constant chatting and regular meet-ups. We all love RareJob for bringing us together, allowing us to earn well, helping us grow as educators, and providing chances for everyone, everywhere! In case you’re interested to join us, register now! 🙂

FAMILY

Speaking of family, my dad visited the Philippines in February and stayed for a month. One month felt like only a week, though! It felt great to fetch him at the airport, but it was devastating when he already had to leave! When he looked back at me and my sister, all of us savored the moment because we didn’t, and still don’t know, when will we be seeing each other again. I hope our mom and brother could also visit soon! Fingers crossed!

An extended birthday celeb with my dad and sister. Oh, I turned 30 this year!

FUN

I’ve always been a positive person, so enjoying life is something I’m good at! I had so much fun not just with my family and friends, but also with the love of my life, my dear Leo! We celebrated our 6th anniversary in July, and for a change, we decided to celebrate it by traveling to Cebu! It was both our first time there, making the trip even more memorable! I renewed my passport in September, while he finally applied for one in October, so hopefully, we could plan an international trip soon! I love you, dear! :-*

My dear. ❤

And that’s a wrap for 2016! Cheers to an even better 2017!

2016 Project 365, Day 362: Gifts from the Boyfriend!

Photo #362: December 27

“Sorry for not telling you more often how much you mean to me and how wonderful you are… p.s. ok lang magka-crush ka. Alam kong wala lang yung mga yun eh. ” (It’s okay for you to have crushes; I know that they are nothing.) – some lines from the card   

Huhuhu, tears of joy and kilig! Thank you, Leo, not just for the moisturizers, lip balms, lipsticks, and necklaces! Thank you for being the balance I need in life: the opposites of my flaws and the realist when I dream too much or become overly optimistic. I love you, dear! :-*

2016 Project 365, Day 353: My Dear

Photo #353: December 18

Me: Dear, there were some ikemen at the tutor gathering! *shows pictures*
Leo: I also have pretty colleagues. *shows pictures*

I’ve always been so vocal to Leo about my crushes, and there were only 2 instances when I felt he got jealous: One Direction (they target insecure girls, according to him haha) and a Rusher friend (“Don’t hangout with him if it’s only the two of you.”) =p Anyway, thank you dear for being ever so patient and understanding despite my mood swings!!! You will always be my number 1 crush, even though and even if! Love you! :-*

2016 Project 365, Day 214: Yap-Sandiego Heritage House

Photo #214: August 1

How fitting to have had a historical experience in Cebu on the first day of Buwan ng Wika (Filipino Language Month)! One of our destinations today was the Yap-Sandiego ancestral house, which is more than 300 years old! Though beautiful, it gave me the creeps because of its horror film vibes! :p Also, we didn’t plan it, but our clothes made us blend with the flags hahaha! 😀
