Moving to Singapore was quite a quick decision for me since it was in my diary to explore more possibilities and establish a better foundation in my career but it was very surprising to all my friends and family that I’ll be enduring not to miss.But the last minute catch ups before I go was one of the most satisfying I’ve ever experienced- favorite girlfriends … Continue reading See you around!
They say that a bestfriend is someone that even if you haven’t spoken with for years, the friendship remains the same no matter what and when you start talking, it seems like you never fell apart.I feel like a kid now.I drafted this post 3 days before Roxanne got married because I want to express how happy I am for her and how beautiful she … Continue reading Goodbye Amsterdam.
I think this is one of my favorites among the unlimited interesting things I’ve done with Taku. For the month of October, aside from the Surprise Party, this is the biggest activity that we have –to host a wedding of good friends (who are Japanese & Iranian/Filipina) so we needed to translate the script in English & Japanese for everybody’s convenience. Above photo was taken … Continue reading Hosting + The Look
Since we haven’t seen each other for a few months and the last Sake Night hosted by Taku was almost a year ago, I invited the Couchsurfers in Manila to have a Birthday Eve Surprise Party for Taku! (Though I wasn’t able to invite everyone cause I couldn’t post it in public). 🙂 The above photo was how I kept the decorations (balloons, cartolina, markers, etc) … Continue reading Birthday Surprise!
So, the photo above is our savings! Yohoo! But as you can see, I’m not suppose to use it for shoes or dress, it says “FOR TRAVEL ONLY” and it’s not even mine alone, Taku put some 10 & 5 peso coins there for the past months! We got a total of 3,500 pesos! I thought we have 6,000 already 😦 but I’m wondering where … Continue reading Vanity & Savings
So here’s what happened when Taku visited my hometown: He worn mask in a non-air conditioned bus because it was too dusty and watched “Lie to me” Season 1 in the entire 8-hour trip! He was able to use once again the words, “Mano po!” to everyone with glasses and white hair (even to some person we just talk to in the market). He visited with … Continue reading Oh! The Japanese is young!
When my sister and I arrived to see dad’s dead body, we rushed to kiss his hands and I sneaked in and put my hand near his armpit like I usually do before we sleep. His hands were already cold but where I placed my hand near his armpit was so warm and I kept my hand in it for a few minutes before it … Continue reading More than a heartbreak
I know I’ve talked about the background of my dad’s personality and lifestyle in my blog post about how tweeting helped my dad but I know I owe this story to my dad’s friends who are worried about us and about dad. You might not have been able to join him in his last days but I know dad knows how much you value your friendships … Continue reading My dad is a happy guy.
I remember how I felt like a Stage Girlfriend a few weeks ago when Taku together with his team won 3rd place and the ‘Best Windows Phone Startup’ in Startup Manila. Haha. I am the number one fan of Taku and I’d offer my short legs for his autograph! Haha. I just wanna say random things. But kidding aside, I was surprised when I accidentally … Continue reading Stage Girlfriend
Growing up in a very family-oriented society like the Philippines, I make sure every year that I’ll be joining my family in the new year’s eve and that no member will be missing simply because there’s a belief that it will mirror the whole year and I definitely don’t want to be away from them the whole year! Haha. Aside from that, we have our … Continue reading NYE 2012: Away from home
