For a couple of failure attempts to actually meet up before December, it finally happened last December 20 and 21! We ate at Banapple prior to that, though. [See that here!]
My morning that day was made up with the usual --- the hesitation of leaving my bed and just staying there for the day but then, this text from Nixie reminded me to prepare myself already for our Christmas party together with Patty, Dani and Leah. Pack, pack, pack... for the sleepover.
When I arrived at Nixie's house, I was welcomed by that Kokey movie she was watching at that time. I never actually watched Kokey before but, wth, was time that fast? My initial reaction was, "bakit ang bata pa dito ni Carlo Aquino?? Matagal na ba yung Kokey?" After slightly making myself interested in the movie, we went to Leah's house and decided to chill at Happy Lemon Eastwood with Mich. Right after, we strolled around the City Mall, specifically the pastry bazaar thing. Although I was very enthusiastic about buying either mochi or French macarons for desert after eating at Kogi (a Korean restaurant), I couldn't because nagrereklamo na ang tiyan ko. lol. Patty and Dani arrived then we got back to Leah's.
There was a great number of food --- salmon sushi, pizzas, red velvet cupcakes, baked mac, etc. --- that we hardly can take any more that we ate ramen before eating those. Right after dinner, we went straight to their sala to play The Millionaire's Game.
The game where all of us got bored with... The Millionaire's Game. Hahaha
For the most part, though, we talked through funny high school moments and.. uh, helped Nixie with her thesis introduction which was funny because despite her motivation to finish it early, Mich's laptop (which Nixie was using) became the laptop ng bayan. Some of us took turns using Facebook and Twitter. Anyway, we also had that exchange gift thing! And I got... Staedtler pens from Dani which were awesome since the ones I have are beginning to empty or to dry out :D I'll probably include that in my next post!
Moving on, here are photos from the small gathering we had:
Taken by yours truly :)
Made by Leah! These salmon sushi were awesome :)
All photos from the fabulous photographer, (naks!) Michelle Robles :)
Because I still can't get over this video. I even cried during the first two times I watched it :( I came to see something about this event at Tricia Gosingtian's blog about that post about her recent visit to Malaysia when she met up with one of its prime bloggers, Cheesie. Coincidentally, Cheesie's the best friend of the girl in the video, Audrey Ooi Feng Ling! So, yeah, if you wanna go through a slower version of the movie, you can browse the memes used by her fiancé, Tim Tiah (who, btw, is one Nuffnang's founder), at her blog [here]!
Too sweet/cute for words.
Gives me another reason to be frustrated in life (Haha, I'm kidding!)
Then again, congratulations for their engagement! We all hope for the best :)

Last December 14, just right after our University Sports Day, we got ready for our block Christmas party at the nearest getaway place of the year: Eastwood! Since we all met up really late, around 10 PM, we decided to have our annual FGF event at Happy Lemon. Bought drinks, took photos while apparently noticing the floral trend during the night and impersonated who we were able to pick.
Oh, and the dress that I wore was the one I bought from Tracy Ayson! :) My mother even liked it1
Chary, Enchees, Irmay and I
Anne and I
We missed the others! :(
We gals :D
Thank you, DJ! :) Haruki Murakami's 1Q84.
Others left early while we stayed there for a little longer and ate first at Tokyo Tokyo (awwgawd, I missed their sushi!!). Homer and Chris decided to go their own way so us two females returned to that drinking place of which name I can't really remember. Went home around 2AM.
Unedited photos from the bagong-bago, wala pang gasgas na camera ni Chris Tenchavez! Thank you :)
Finally a chance to post these blessings over here :) The Christmas season has already given me its taste over the past week! Reunion here and parties there left my wallet with ease! It's all happening so fast but one just can't reject blessings, can we?
I apologize for the lack of posts here in this blog. Schedule's *coughs* somehow did not permit
me to take a long break from it. Plus, we have this supposed to be programming thesis thing due first thing when we go to school this January.
Macarons de Paris? Nah, think again! These are My Heavenly Desserts' [FB] delectable and colorful cake poppers given to me by my then really mysterious FGF for my block's Christmas party (Haha!)
What I recently found (lol) in the Izzo bag I posted here from Ate Anna. I opened the bag's pocket and then, chiching! Thank you so much :) Late ko nga lang napansin even though I've already used it for a couple times already. Haha. I really appreciate receiving letters of any size :)
Just in time for the holidays, Aisa Ipac of Drowning Equilibriums [ipaxme] and the newly-opened The Little Things She Needs are giving away a P1000 gift certificate for a lucky reader!
I was window-shopping a while ago in Galleria and this recently-opened store simply caught my eye with the simple yet quirky ambiance. They're also having a 2 for P1,199 promo for the flat shoes section! Their bags and of course, accessories were very eye-catching and definitely a must-have.
The saleslady's "uniform" was fasyon too with the matching scarf!
