yes, i know i did just come from boracay and i was just in bangkok late january but this was a very last minute business trip. we were able to finish all the paperwork just in time for friday closing and i flew out just this morning. i’ll be here till march 12 then i’ll be heading out to boracay again for the annual boracay open beach ultimate tournament.

this is my very first business trip and i’m pretty scared of royally screwing up. haha! it’s awesome travelling on business though. my suite is huge! i’m staying at the parklane suites of the goodwood park hotel singapore.

i did take some pics with my camera but my cheapipay memory card reader isn’t working so i can’t load them.

i still owe you a lot of kwento from boracay and the week after boracay. i still can’t believe how much has been happening to me since the start of this year. it’s still february for crying out loud! (although, it’ll be march in a few minutes. haha!) oh well, it seems the universe is making up for all those years i spent just breezing through. *sigh* i promise to update you guys soon! 🙂

still wishing i have sand at my feet

Kara DioGuardi and Jason Reeves

Lala Lala la la
Mmmmmm mmm
You by the light
Is the greatest find
In a world
Full of wrong
Your the thing thats right
Finally made it
Through the lonely
To the other side

You set it again
My hearts in motion
Every word feels
Like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows
Burning in the dark
And I’m in love
And I’m terrifed
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life

This could be good
Its already better than that
And nothings worse
Than knowing your holding back
I could be all that you need
If you let me try

Repeat Chorus

I only said it ’cause I mean it
Oh I only mean it
‘Couse its true
So dont you tear
What I’ve been dreaming
‘Couse it keeps me up
And holds me close
Whenever Im without you

Repeat Chorus


this song has american idol smeared all over it. Kara DioGuardi co-wrote it, Katherine McPhee has it in her latest album and Didi Benami just did a beautiful cover in the hollywood round.

Didi Benami

Katherine McPhee

this song actually makes me want to grab a guitar and start learning the chords. hmmm… perhaps it isn’t so late to start learning how to play the guitar, eh?

i’m in love. i’m terrified. what is more terrifying then falling-in-love, right? 🙂

one of my goals since i started playing ultimate was to join the annual bangkok hat. i was originally planning to go in 2008 but that didn’t push through. then somehow it totally slipped my mind in 2009. when some of my friends started booking for 2010, i knew it was now or never.

i was uncertain on whether or not i really wanted till play even when i was there because truth be told, i’m not so confident with disc anymore. i played with the pink with blue sleeves team, the molly ringwalds. (yeah, i don’t get why the sleeves were blue either. haha!) i was just glad i didn’t get neon orange or neon green or neon yellow because that would’ve really clashed with my color.

yeah mollies!!!

my nerves were gone when i made the assist on the very first point we scored. whew! i played really well actually… handling on some points, cutting hard when on mid and even running in the cup on defense. it was such an exhilarating and confidence-boosting experience!

throwing a forehand

yeah, not my best action shot

my team ended up playing undefeated till the finals which we lost to a team we had previously beaten the day before. sucks when that happens, huh? actually, i was a bit disappointed when we kept winning because i really was looking forward to partying and drinking on the sidelines during the finals, not actually playing it. every time someone congratulated me on making it to the final, i replied… i just want to drink already. haha! oh well, at least i got to take home a medal! not too shabby for my first international hat. 😛

claire and me kissing our sweet medals during the sunday field party —>

aside from playing the finals, my best memories of the weekend include:

  • apple pie shots! can’t post a pic of me here ‘coz it looked like i was puking it out because of all the vodka sol put in my mouth
  • the food on the field, which enjoyed too little of ‘coz i couldn’t run on a full stomach
  • bonding with the girls (on and off the field)

  • with the apple pie shot gals, who i wanted to be a part of so much. oh well, next year!

    claire and me with jody, who i ended up teaching some carmen electra moves to. haha!

    with rox and ther, going old school at the saturday night party. i came as an 80’s explosion of pink

  • taking care of three of my drunk/high girlfriends after the saturday party. i texted nina the next day, when did i become the responsible one?
  • bonding with a toilet seat in pat pong, sunday night. i sped drank myself after we played my finals on a practically empty stomach. no wonder i started puking after a one-hour cab ride to the red light district of bangkok. it also was quite an experience seeing girls do stuff with their va-jay-jays that i assure you normal women would not be able to do.
  • the shopping would have been a great experience if not for my aching legs. we met up at a fashion mall at around 1pm, ate lunch then agreed to meet at 530pm. by 3pm, most of us were crying no more shopping so we decided to call it quits a bit earlier. next time, shopping should come before the playing. haha!

  • having beers after an exhausting shopping trip on monday afternoon

if you’re waiting for the dirt about the boys on the trip, sorry to disappoint but i was a good girl during that weekend. to be honest, i wasn’t planning to be but you know what they say about best laid plans right? haha! i ended up playing the finals, taking care of my drunk friends and being too lazy to really flirt and mingle with any of the cuties on the field. i kinda disappointed my friend, sol, who until now still keeps saying i was too pathetically good. i’m still kinda confused at the moment kasi eh. haha! 😛

all-in-all, that weekend was awesome! not quite what i was expecting, but still perfect in it’s own way. sign me up for bangkok hat 2011!

with everything that’s happened in january, i somehow feel as though i’m already right smack in the middle of 2010 rather than just in the first quarter.

2010 started out really rough. scratch that, it started out pretty awesome actually with an impromptu beach trip with some of my high school classmates. having been stuck to the house most of the time i’m in davao, i haven’t really explored the beaches in samal island. i’m glad that during my latest vacation home i was able to go to the beach not once but two times. the first time with my high school barkada and the second time with a handful of my high school classmates.

davao beaches are gorgeous!

i’m currently obsessed with…

... victoria's secret lingerie (i really want to buy some and have them shipped here)
... tumblr-ing
... hula-hooping
... learning my old piano pieces again
... expensive stuff i can't afford
... still being kissed ala north & south

That’s the closest to my idea of love: watching the skyline, making out, making mistakes, making believe desire means it’s with somebody else, then breaking up, and, if we’re lucky, forgiveness that comes right before take-off. There, I’ve said it. What more can one want? A lover who loves me as much as the rain. Rain, and, from the opening credits to the closing heart, Gershwin.
~ The Muse This Time by R Zamora Linmark

i love;
...ultimate frisbee;
...the melancholic sound of the cello;
...playing the piano;
...Frederic Chopin, John Williams and Michael Legrand;
...the rain;
...walking in the rain;
...hanging out with my friends;
...being a girly-girl;
...wearing dresses; naturally wavy hair;
...the sound of waves crashing in the shore; and pasta;
...raisin bread;
...Cyrano de Bergarac;;
...Artic Vodka Melon;
...Jose Cuervo Tequila; lomo cameras;
...taking pictures;
...chick flicks that make you believe that finding your one true love is not so impossible; and
...heartwrenchingly beautiful songs that say otherwise
