my grandpa used to water the plants every week and there was a lil frog that would come out and croak until my grandpa sprinkled some water on him and he loved that frog so much

At the end of a stressful day, all I wanna do is slow dance with you.
"I hope we end up together."
Do you go to coffee shops every night just to study? So you study and drink coffee every night?
Sadly, yes. :( my #1 luho in life! Not naman every night but like.. 4 to 5 times a week siguro! Tas mga 2 to 3 ‘yung nag-aaral talaga ako L O L
Hi ate! Gusto ko lang itanong.. umuutot po ba kayo in public? Huhuhu haha kasi po! Wala lang nacucurious lang ako sa mga perfect tulad niyo kung paano kayo umutot :( huhu ate sorry ok lang kahit hindi mo sagutin
HAHAHAHHAHAHAH GRABEEEEEEE KYOT. Minsan din iniisip ko kung paano umutot si Marian Rivera (bilang ang perfect niya for me, and ang layo ko from perfect gurl nukabeh) pero hmm paano ba. Siguro ano.. slowly but surely. ;) #tmi
hi. I just wanna say that I miss you
Hu diz plz :(
Queenaaaa y u so pretty I saw u in UP bat ang effortless?!!?! Teach me your ways pls!
Sure ka bang ako ‘yun, teh? HAHA I appreciate this doe thank u pero I completely disagree! Dami kong nakikita sa UP na saksakan ng prettyness na parang hindi nahahaggard sa life tas eto ako.. oily fezz + intense eye baggage! Lol haha baka umaga mo ako nakita :) hihi pero improvement na hindi na ako nagpapambahay to school ngayon!
Omg Q! Napansin ko lang.. nasan na purity ring mo? Ahem ahem!!!!!
HAHAHAH ikaw ha kung makachismis! Took Skin Diving as PE last year tas for some reason, nahulog sa pool! So andun lang ‘yun now bilang never ‘yun nililinis. Chos! Or not.. actually ‘di ko talaga alam pero swear sobrang dumi ng pool hindi na ako nag-effort hanapin sa ilalim-ilalim baka kung ano pa mahablot ko..
Oh nooooo I’m starting to post a lot of Gian-related stuff. I’m starting to be this kind of person… noooooooooo HAHAHAH jk. I guess it’s just more comfortable for me now to talk about him since we’re now official (after two years)! And I don’t think a lot of people read this anyway so.. huehuehue :)
As mentioned, Tita’s birthday falls on the 14th of February but this year, we celebrated it on the 16th, a Sunday, since medj big party ito because it’s her 50th! To be honest, iniiwasan ko talaga anything clan-related event before since scary and shy pa me but since it’s Tita’s birthday and legit naman na kami lolz, might as well!
The St. Francis Shangri-La Place is BEAUTIFUL. I swear! Most beautiful condotel I’ve ever seen in my life. Hindi nga siya mukhang condo eh, mukha siyang mini hotel. Ever since iniisip ko na gusto ko magkaroon ng sariling bahay. My own house. Ayoko magpa-construct since masyadong stressful (based on our experience) so I already decided on buying a house in a nice and secured subdivision sa future. Haha planado na talaga!? But after this.. oh my. I felt like living here is like being in a hotel EVERY DAY. How awesome is that? Iniisip ko before na mahirap ang condo pag nagkafire or earthquake tsaka iba pa rin ‘pag hindi ka nagrerent para mas stable. Pero.. ang ganda talaga dito. I took loads of photos!!!
Syempre ang ganda ng ilaw by the pool so I had my fair share of selfies hihi
I think the last time I wore pearl earrings was grade school pa! I looked so dainty lol ‘di ako sanay. Hindi rin ako sanay with my black hair but now, I’m loving it! Au naturale ang peg. :) super hassle kasi ng colored hair! Explained this in my “ask” cheverloo.
Eh ‘yung nasa Aurelio table ako under “family”? AAAHHHHHH oh em feel ko ang bata ko pa for this and parang ang serious na once you meet the clan (I experienced this before with another guy tas they were all like “Alam mo ba, ikaw ang unang dinala niya dito!” tas I got pretty close na with some of his relatives pero wala, hindi nagwork. But that’s a whole different story! Bottomline: naging super awkward.) kaya medj kaba galore talaga ako. Funny thing is, when the relatives saw me, they were all like “Oh andito pala si Queena eh!” and deep inside I was like “Omg who is this person I do not know him/her omg omg omg” HAHAHAAH they were all so friendly, nice, and accommodating! Pinapakita na pala ni Tita sa mga kapatid niya ‘yung mga pictures ko kaya pala kilala na nila ako. It was kind of easy to blend in also since mga ilokano rin sila so pag nalalaman nila na Singson-Filart ako, may conversation starter na agad! Halos lahat sila tinatanong kung umuuwi pa ba ako sa Vigan, kung marunong ako mag-ilokano etc. Sobrang cool na medyo same background ‘yung families namin.
The most awesome part is that his Lolo knows my grandparents!!!! WOOOAAAH SMALL WORLD! Grabe, nagulat talaga ako! Since his Lolo worked in Unilab, siya daw ‘yung nagsusupply ng mga gamot sa Sagrado Corazon, ‘yung one and only drugstore sa Vigan noon which was owned by my Lola. They were friends daw back then tas ang cool kasi alam pa niya itsura till now! Sobrang proud pa ni Lolo Arnie na kilala niya grandparents ko so lagi niyang binabanggit sa ibang relatives. Ang dami pa niyang kwento and alam niya kung saan kami nakatira sa Vigan! So kyot! He also likes taking a lot of photos. He snapped a photo of me fixing Gian’s collar with his phone hihihi cutie. Kung may pera lang ako, binilhan ko na siya nung Samsung Camera na android na sobrang gandaaaaa. Eh wala akong pera. LELS.
Gian sang while playing the guitar and Jab played the piano. Yep, may program pa itetch and all! May games, videos, etc. Oh btw, ‘di ko pala nabanggit na sa function room kami ng St Francis kasi dito nakatira si Tita Malot. Tita Malot is the eldest sa kanilang magkakapatid pero she looked so young and fresh! Parang early 40s lang. Sana ganun din ako! Sayang walang photo doeeee
Hands down to this man for preparing this kind of celebration for his wife! Grabe, sobrang meticulous and todo prepare talaga si Tito Mario for this! If I were him nga naman, medj intense pressure since may expectations si Tita. Funny nga kasi dapat talaga surprise birthday party ito but since Tita is being Tita.. alam na niya almost all sa preparations tas ‘yung iba, siya na mismo umasikaso. The only thing left for her to know is the program. Di niya alam ‘yung flow! Nakakatawa kasi she assumed na since puro boys ‘yung family nila, magiging waley. Pero little did she know na Tito hired a live band pa and he spent late nights making through-the-years compilation videos. Pero dahil laging prepared si Tita, SHE ALSO MADE HER OWN VIDEOS!!! HAHAHA. Pero mas mahaba ‘yung videos ni Tito and meron pang mga greetings from other (celebrity) friends & relatives abroad. Ang ganda din ng compilation ng travel photos/videos. Ang dami na niyang napuntahan!
It was nice to see how happy Tita was that day. After everything she’s been through, it’s refreshing to see her genuine smile on her radiating face. :) She thanked each and everyone of the guests for coming and being part of her adventure so far! The last one she thanked was me, for being the daughter they never had. AAAWWWWWW HUHUHUHUHUHU I SWEAR IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO CONTROL MY TEARS!!!!! That line meant the world to me. She mentioned it na before, that she likes inviting me whenever they eat out since wala silang daughter so ako na lang! Pero for her to say that in front of her 100+ guests, in front of her family and loved ones, wow. I am truly blessed.
Speaking of eating, food was great! Hizon’s catered the event. Super sarap ng roast beeeeeeeeeef. Hindi ko na napicture-an sa kasarapan. I got to take a photo of this creme brulee though! That I didn’t get to try :((((( huhu hanggang litrato na lang.
After the event, Gian and I studied. What’s new? HAHA It was the weekend before the hell-est week this sem. I should start mastering the art of balancing work and play! His parents understand naman whenever we opt to study since they’re both from UP so they know the stress and all and they know that Gian can’t study alone. HAHAHA I actually can’t, too. It’s great to have him as my study buddy but I’m also proud to say that I can be productive without him also (but usually with Eloisa naman lol since inaantok talaga ako pag mag-isa). But it’s just way better when you have someone to discuss the lessons with and since he knows how I think, he’s the most capable of explaining things to me clearly. Oh how hard this would be during med.. Just thinking about adjusting if ever we’re in different schools.. hmm, kakayanin! :)
Sorry if this post is quite long hehe medyo wala akong makwentuhan sa mga happenings (dahil lahat busy) kaya dito na lang. Overall and as you can infer, that day went better than expected! :)
