John Lloyd Day

No joke, I met John Lloyd last January 8. :)  I joined Chai’s Day of Stories (see previous entry) and met a boy named John Lloyd at Virlanie Foundation. I just remembered it now.  Funny because later that evening, I got to see the real John Lloyd Cruz in a concert I went to together with Onyi, Mune and Ate Agnes. :)  From afar, he still looked oh so gorgeous. Note please that he didn’t sing or anything.  He went on stage in a car and made pa-cute to the audience for like 5 or so minutes and that’s it.  ;P  

Ine with John Lloyd. Sayang I failed to take a photo with him. :(

Chai's Day of Stories

Just last Saturday-January 8-I had the privilege of joining a dear friend for her birthday outreach.  I have been reading about her previous outreaches through her blog, but this is the only year I got to go with her.  I have to say it has been a blessing to be a part of something good. :)

“I’m your Christmas present!!!” -Badiday

Just so you know, her name was actually given to her by our Lolo Papang.  Lolo called his wife, Inday.  She used the same term of endearment when calling, Rachel(this is her real name btw), but added Badiday in the end-“Inday Badiday”.  In the long run, almost everyone in the family calls her, Badiday.

She arrived in Manila on the eve of Christmas 2010.  And everyday since then has been a real treat.  The recent holiday season was a blast having her and her family around.

Thanks Badiday!  Hopefully we’ll see each other again this February. :)

Holiday Caffeine Overdose! :)

Tis the season to be jolly and to eat and eat and eat and drown yourself with caffeine.  I have already lost track how many times I have gone to different coffee shops and how many cups I had since the start of December 2010.  Oh well, it doesn't matter.  All I remember were the conversations shared with family and friends while sipping my hot cup of cafe mocha. Below are  SOME(I am not exaggerating) of the moments I was caught on cam.

1.1.11= Road Trip and Coffee Treats

I started the first day of 2011 with a road trip and ended the day with a cup of coffee! :) Sweet! Hopefully it will be the same way the entire year. I am looking forward to traveling more and having a great cup of coffee and conversations with people I love and new friends I have yet to meet.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

For the past weeks I have been busy with the wedding preps for Talit and Paul's wedding. 3 days to go before their "I DO"!  That's the only reason why I haven't been able to post updates here.  There are a lot of events happening here and there which I will surely share to everybody soon.

For now, I just want to greet everyone a Merry Merry Christmas! :)

I am glad that Jesus came to earth to be born of a virgin, away in a manger.

1 Friend Request

Praise God for the success of Campus Connection 2010!   I feel happy to be part of this event in a different way, though I am technically not a part of the BYP already, I was there to pray and support the new batch of leaders who worked hard to make this event feasible.  I love the feeling that God's ministry continues on;  it is my first time not to sit behind the Registration Table.  Yey! :)

2 thumbs up! Yey for Reg people doing their job! :)

i ♥ family bonding moments!!!

The best memories are those with people you love.  Family is one of them and nothing beats simple moments turned to special memories.  Here are a few of them that happened last week! :)

Rea's birthday celebration here at home

Sportsfest 2010 with Ine
watched this movie with Chester and Rea at Eastwood, sayang wala kami picture pala

I also had bonding moments with my mom and dad.  I went with them to Toyota, Balintawak for the car's maintenance then we proceeded to Trinoma for lunch and then to SM Makati for some shopping.
