it’s 4am and i haven’t slept yet. it’s my fault, really. i don’t want to sleep because i’m scared i’ll miss my 8am flight to cagayan de oro. so here i am surfing the internet and the tv. i realize that i haven’t been updating this blog anymore. so here’s a pathetic, last-minute attempt to update you with the latest, juiciest stuff that’s been happening to me.

life has been pretty monotonous as of late. work has been hectic to say the least. and i haven’t been able to attend ultimate training because i keep having to stay a bit later than normal in the office. the stress level is still something i can handle but i feel myself getting fatter everyday. 😦 on happier news, my hula-hoop arrived already so i have an alternative method of exercise already. i’m already pretty good with waist hooping and i’m getting the hang of hip hooping already. it’s pretty exciting actually and i really want to learn as many moves as i can. at least i still have some semblance of physical activity.

my mind, on the other hand, gets the all the exercise it could get. every wednesday, i join a group of friends at Panama Jack for Quizzo Nights. it’s so much fun! so far i’ve realized that i suck at geography questions and current events and that i’m pretty good with hollywood showbiz questions. it’s actually a pretty good way to unwind after a stressful day at work. so grab a bunch of your friends and join us at Panama Jack on wednesdays! 😀

another thing that has got me excited is the fact that the US fall tv season is upon us. all my favorite shows are back and i am psyched about them all. but the one that’s got me hooked is Glee! it had me at Love, Look Away and it’s got me ever since. Glee is my definition of tv heaven: broadway songs, cute song&dance numbers and hot guys who could sing. *sigh* if only we could just all break into song when we feel like it without looking like total psychos. hahahaha! anyway, here’s the Gold Digger cover from the show. it’s not the actual clip but just the audio. youtube has been pretty strict with their videos lately. oh well…

wow, that took longer than expected. now, i’m late. i’m off to iligan for some ultimate, river-tubing, caving/rappelling and just chilling with a bunch of my friends. ahhh… despite everything, life is still good. 😀

yesterday was the first day of the all-mens and all-womens league, Malakas & Maganda. even though we were thoroughly exhausted after playing 3 games, 2 of which were back-to-back, we still found time to do this…


bwahahahaha! it’s supposed to be the T3 cheer but none of the boys were really buying it but we decided to do it anyway.

yep, this is never going to fail to make me smile. i really do love my friends!

*thanks for the .gif file claire! 😉

last september 26-29, 14 of my friends and i spent the weekend touring my hometown Davao City. it’s my hometown but i was just as much a tourist as my friends. Davao City has always been my haven from my hectic Manila life so i normally spend my days there at home, reading or sleeping. just goes to show how much you can take your hometown for granted. 😉

since we were only spending 4 days and 3 nights in Davao City, we made made most of our time. we were able to cram a beach trip, white water rafting, an ultimate pickup with a local team Badgoyz, pasalubong and suha shopping, and enjoying the local nightlife. so here’s a photo semi-diary of what we did there.

Sept 26: Arrival at Davao, Isla Reta, Pasalubong Shopping at Aldevinco, Dinner at my parent’s house, Drinks at Bakbak

our flight to Davao was at 4am so none of us had much sleep the night before. however, since we didn’t want to waste our time in Davao, we left our bags at my grandfather’s house where we stayed then went to the dock with the boat that would take us to Isla Reta. we met with some bad luck because the boat we rode took it’s sweet time to fill up all the seats. i think it took us 2.5 hours from the time we got to the dock to the beach. we made good use of that time in the boat by sleeping. hahaha! after our brief beach sojourn, we went to aldevinco to buy some sarongs and native stuff then we proceeded home to freshen up before heading to my parent’s house for dinner. my dad couldn’t resist and gave them a 30-minute sermon on predestination. i really was hoping he wouldn’t do that but my friends were all respectful and (half) listened to him while he was speaking. after dinner, we headed to Bakbak to have some below zero beer to cap off the night.

Sept 27: White Water Rafting, Dinner at Food Galore, Ultimate Party at Fahrenheit, Drinks at Bakbak

this was the highlight of our entire trip… the white water rafting!!! we were all excited and scared at the same time but we got through it! check out the video for some of our white water rafting action videos. it was super fun!!! a part of me wants to take up rowing as a sport now. problem is i doubt that i’ll ever wake up in time for the training. hahaha! credit to jb and claire for making the video. =)

we headed home to freshen up for dinner at Food Galore then an ultimate fund-raiser party at Fahrenheit.

Sept 28: Breakfast at Mcdo, Eden Nature Resort, Pickup with Badgoyz, Dinner at Flyover Ihawan (not so sure about the name), Drinks at Francis’ House, More drinks at my house

according to our itinerary, we were supposed to go to Camp Sabros in Mt. Apo to try out the 2-minute zipline but we were all too tired from the previous two days’ activities that we opted to have breakfast at Mcdo instead. hahaha! well, in our defense, it would’ve been a two-hour drive to Camp Sabros and a two-hour drive back and none of us was up for another long jeepney ride. after lunch at the house, we headed over to Eden Nature Resort for some nature tripping. we also managed to squeeze a pickup game with Badgoyz. after dinner we went to Francis’ house for drinks. then we had more drinks at my house after.

i jump like a girl. hahaha!!!

Sept 29: Back to Manila

we headed back home to manlia at 12nn on monday loaded with scrapes from our rafting adventure, kilos and kilos of suha as pasalubong, and tons of fun memories. out of town trips with friends are really so much fun!!! i’m already looking forward to the next one. 😉

last night, me and a few girl friends watched the first-day showing of Sex and the City.

it was a wonderful homecoming for carrie, samantha, charlotte and miranda… the designer clothes, the designer shoes, the loves of their lives and of course, the sex. although, most of that was cut out of the movie. boo, mtrcb, boo!!!

there isn’t much i can say without spoiling it for all of you so i’ll just say this… it’s fun and it’s fabulous. sometimes it was a bit dragging but overall it was a great continuation of each woman’s story. plus all the fabulous clothes and shoes make me want to go shopping right now!!! :))

there was one thing i really loved about the movie and about the series and that is the bond of friendship the girls have with each other. i think friends are the best support system one can have after a breakup or just even a bad day. sex and the city is a wonderful testament to a beautiful friendship.

i’m so glad i have the nicest, caring, loving and brutally honest friends a gal can find. i’m a lucky girl! 😉 i love you friends! :*

[12:03] tikayiyay: paminsan naiisip ko numb na ako to this pain, especially with him. kasi aware naman ako sa pinasok ko ulit eh.
[12:03] tikayiyay: pero i really can’t get how insensitive he is.
[12:04] tikayiyay: dapat, a***n and i found solace in each other’s arms nalang.
[12:04] jenniraikkonen: malandi
[12:04] jenniraikkonen: he is mine
[12:04] tikayiyay: :))
[12:04] jenniraikkonen: until melai comes back from turkey
[12:04] jenniraikkonen: and then i’ll just steal him from her
[12:04] tikayiyay: hahaha.
[12:04] tikayiyay: 😛
[12:04] jenniraikkonen: tish, we can never be numb from … well, pain
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: we think we have moved on
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: then may oras na wala, andun lang talaga sha
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: to bug us
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: so we cant sleep
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: or we cant work
[12:05] tikayiyay: or we can’t eat?
[12:05] tikayiyay: :))
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: or we cant… well we can’t not eat
[12:05] tikayiyay: hahaha.
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: pero alam mo un
[12:05] jenniraikkonen: akala mo tapos na
[12:06] jenniraikkonen: tapos may biglang magiging moment na… we are just just too strong or too proud to cry pero biglang nagkakaroon ng cry-worthy moments
[12:07] tikayiyay: i keep on thinking. should i start crying my eyes out over it now? pero hindi naman ako napapaiyak.
[12:08] tikayiyay: ewan ko ba kung napapaiyak pa ba ako or not.
[12:08] tikayiyay: parang i just have to keep telling myself na i’m strong and i can get through this.
[12:08] tikayiyay: that he is a stupid guy not worth wasting this much time thinking over. and especially not worth crying over anymore.
[12:08] jenniraikkonen: the tears will come
[12:08] jenniraikkonen: just not now

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
