Here’s to update my little humble abode through bullets
so how are you guys? another buwan ng wika has passed by and I must say that august flew by fast and I wasn’t able to enjoy it. hell, because of midterm and for our speech choral in our speech and stage arts. I wasn’t able to take pictures in every bits of my life lately, sorry, I was so lazy.
last Friday was our actual performance for our speech choral, it was the Congo. I wasn’t prepared for this because, you know I’m not use to perform in front of the audience.. lucky me, because it’s allowed to paint our face. yey!! medyo hindi ako nakilala. 
I bought five books this month and I’m not keeping my promise that I was in a book buying ban lol. i tell you book lovers, book buying ban doesn’t exist. I bought, wonder by R.J. Palacio, Amy and Roger’s epic detour and second chance summer by morgan matson, the probability of miracles by wendy wunder and my name is memory by ann brashares. hahahha! I love books that’ why.
and I want to thank God for giving my father another chance to live. hays, God has been so good to me, blessed me with a family that full support on my school. thank God for giving me another spiritual strength, also emotionally, and physically.
Buwan ng wika! is the highlight of this month and I must say, I’m so thankful because they gave me the chance to teach 1st year about their sabayang pagbigkas. I wasn’t able to attendin today’s awarding because I was so lazy, but Hopefully they’re gonna win this competition. haha!
so I was looking forward this september to more activities and more book buying. hahaha. I’m excited to attend on Jeniffer smith’s book signing event with kathrynreads. so to those who didn’t take their midterm pa, study hard and be unique hahaha. lol
God bless. cheerio..

Young Film-Makers Workshop

so despite of being busy with our school, we managed to attend this event last Saturday, held at Filinvest tent, along Northgate Alabang. Ma’am. Cabalfin Asked us if we could attend to this event, and since we saw Dir. Paul is going to teach us some tips on becoming a director, so why not? hahahaha! and beside, it’s paul soriano. lol, and it’s for our speech and stage arts also. 

so the exact time to be there is 8am, but unfortunately I came late, around 10 something at naligaw pa ako, coz’ I’m not familiar with streets at alabang. so I called Johmaila, who’s at the event already, to fetch me up at Vivere, but she refused to fetch me, since the sun is really hot. nagtanong tanong nalang ako. after 30 minutes I reached the Filinvest tent and waited for harven outside. then when I saw harven, we go inside na sa tent and registered. mind you it’s free snack and lunch. hihi <3

food stub. wasn’t able to take pictures of the food, I don’t know, I just forgot. haha.

then ayun nga they started already. and for my first lecturer is Dir. Zig Dulay. he lectured us some of the script writing and screenplay process. pero hindi ko na din siya naumpisahan. then Ms. Ida Tiongson the one who filmed the Pedro Calungsod lectured us how to film sustainability, I wasn’t that interested, so we went outside to grab our free lunch. 

my name tag :)

and yes, I would like to tell you, that this is my favorite part of the workshop. Sir. Jessie Lasaten taught us how to write music in your film, and man!! Sir. Jessie’s music is really good. ang sarap sa pandinig. he categorized his music according to the scene. and it was awesome..

the next lecturer is Joey Paras. little did I know siya yung bida sa movie na “Bekikang” I saw a poster of it at cinema. and then this part was such a funny part. Sir. Joey Paras asked us if he can borrow 3 people who loves to act. and then these guys raised there hand and they’re about to act “Ate pahingi naman ng piso” in different ways of acting. funny, because si ate na nasa gitna nalaglag sa stage and we choose her as the best actress hahaha. lol

johmaila had the chance to have picture with sir. joey paras. he just need to go for his shoot that day so nauna na siya umuwi.. next lecturer is Dir. Paul Soriano, I have a picture but my laptop wasn’t cooperating with me and this buddy, acting so weird lately. 

my classmate who became my subject for my own photography sheesh that day. lol. because we got so bored inside the lecturer room. 

little photoshoot.

and yes si paul soriano lumabas na. at sa sobrang daming nag papicture, nahuli na kami at medyo sneek pa lol. 

the actual picture with paul sorian at mind you he put his hands around my shouldre hahaha. lol.

photoshoot sa booth :)

we did a little photoshoot outside the tent and it was fun to have a shoot with your classmate. 

they enjoyed too as my subject :)

with sir. dan villegas who discussed about cinematography. I wan’t that interested. so tumambay nalang kami sa may kainan dun sa tent, then waited for our photobooth photos and certificate.

and yey! the certificate. I was so excited to get this because Ma’am. Cabalfin said that we can use this in the future if we are going to apply for a work. 

I really did enjoy this workshop, even though it’s not my path to make a film but we join the student film making contest. and of course the highlight of this event is Direct. Paul soriano. hahahaha lol.

Yes, really it’s been a while since I last posted here. sorry for neglecting this blog too much!! I know, I know, I’m such a lazy ass, but school is won’t giving me time to post. I have a lot of stories to tell. Prelim is already done and midterm will be on August 18 something?? I’m so tired, Graduating student is being an ass since school started last June. here’s an update tru bullets:

  • okay, if you’re following me on Instagram account, you’ll know that my parents and I change room, but since my dad feel suffocated in our old room, we changed rooms again. it’s very tiring because my book are so heavy. but now back to my old room, I feel so contented. hihi. I really need a new bookshelf now, since my book is growing and growing in number. 
  • I miss reading, and I hate this feeling that I’ve been neglecting all of my to-be-read books. I’m still reading Unravel me and i haven’t got the chance to finish it, since school is literally eating me alive. Midterm is starting to be pain in the ass, since my professor asked us if we could read 4 books in this term, then every meeting she will going to ask us if what chapter we are na and then we will make a reflection journal on what we read every meeting. and after reading the book, we will make a plot-curve diagram for the story that we read. paulit-ulit na ganun sa apat na libro. this is really a PAIN IN THE ASS. I HATE THIS MOMENT. how I wish I have the power to fast forward everything to graduation. I’m so tired!!
  • I can’t wait to read Ignite me, since, I really want to know if warner and Juliette ended up together. haha! I have a lot of books here that I haven’t read yet. I’m a big Impulsive buyer when it comes to book. yes of course, bookworms out there, knows about this. haha! How I wish I can find enough time to cope up with my babies. 
  • last Sunday, I went to vot with oxcel and my 2 besties since mom, wasn’t able to go, because papa is not feeling well. so i asked my two bestfriend if they can go with me. and they immediately agreed because y’know I’m a spoiled brat and I’m their little sister hahaha. anyway, I love teaching kids, i think this will be my lifetime ministry and I thank God for giving me another chance to prove that i’m worth it. I just love being in love with you Lord. thank you for providing us the everything we need. I can never repay my indebtedness with you, but I will give my life to you and serve you wholeheartedly.

My life has been pretty tough and busy lately but still I’m happy because God is always giving me strength to carry all the things and burden that I have now. in bad times and in good times I will thank the Lord for all he has done to me. <3

I sill have to save another bucks to get the copy of champion, which is the conclusion of this trilogy.

okay, so first, I’m not planning to buy these books, because the cover doesn’t caught my attention, but when I saw a lot of good reviews about these books I immediately check it on National bookstore website and asked my ate if she can buy these books for me. and besides Marie Lu will be having her book signing on september (Not sure for the month). so my ate Gave me 1k to purchase these books. also I bought another book marks yesterday which is not included in the photo. I haven’t posted this on my Instagram since I don’t have a load and I’m only using broadband stick. we still have no Wifi because of the last week typhoon. 

if you read my previous blog post, I mentioned it there that I still have my another four book hauls which is these books and the other two (will probably post a photo of it tomorrow)

that’s it. another book hauls <3

Life Lately <Family bonding, School, Typhoon Glenda and New Books>

I’m so busy! sorry because prelim is currently on going and damn it’s so hard! specially my major subjects. it’s like I want to kill myself because I can’t think properly on what to answer in the Questionnaire. anyway, without further ado lemme me feed you on what’s going on with my life haha. 

before the typhoon glenda hits metro manila and other places like bataan, batangas and Quezon. last last sunday we had an early dinner at dampa which is located at daang hari along the highway. so we got there at 6:30pm after our evangelism at church. anyway, there’s a lot of gays who is convincing us to go to there restaurant and eat there haha. but we ended up choosing SIS Restaurant. it’s actually my 3rd time there since they cooked a lot of delicious foods like adobong pusit, buttered shrimp, sinigang sa miso, etc. btw Dampa is a sea foods restaurant. sorry if I haven’t post any foods, because we’re so hungry that time and me the one who always took the pictures is craving for something seafoods so our camera left behind haha.

anyway, after eating our scrumptious dinner, I asked my dad if we can go to festival mall to have our desserts, and to have a little shopping na rin. so first, we had a wintermelon milktea at serenitea and after that we went to toby’s to buy some things that my brother need for his training. yes, basketball. haha! my brother loves basketball so much. then we went to robinsons to buy long sleeve for my brother, shoes for oxcel and a dress for my ate and mama. so me being a bookworm I chose to request a book, so I went to powerbooks and grab the Insurgent and Allegiant. hehehe. thanks papa for another books.

these books are my July book haul. kulang pa yan kasi meron pa akong apat na binili hahaha! will post the 4 books soon! after shopping we went home na since my feet hurts na and I really want to rest.

here’s another update (the week were typhoon glenda hits manila)

  1. tuesday, we have class pa but it got suspended due to the heavy rain. since I don’t have an umbrella, I asked my classmate if pwede niya ako ihatid sa bahay. the she agreed, thank God! because that time I’m not really feeling well. 
  2. when I got home I ate fruits and oatmeal then take med and then sleep, ohmy! it was my longest sleep this year, imagine an Insomniac girlfall asleep for about 13 hours. I woke up with a rain and the wind that it bangs in our window and roof.
  3. I’m so scared that time, feeling ko yung pako ng bubong namin matatanggal na. and i was praying to god, “No Lord, Please protect us us from the typhoon.” i kept on saying in Jesus name. i thank god because after the rain my family is safe and our house is still fix nothing happened.
  4. We have no electricity for 4 days. I’m so irritated because if we have no electricity it means we have no water too. and it’s really hard for us. really really hard. i feel like there’s a chaos here in metro manila, in our places. everyone’s looking for a food, a candle and for the water. huhu! please Lord don’t let this happen again. 
  5. and of course if you have no electricity it means it’s so hot that you need to use “Pamaypay” to produce  air. but I’m not please. so we ended up going to trion tower in our condominium for two days. I have a picture but unfortunately I deleted it stupid me. 
  6. Last saturday we slept at church since there’s a electricity na and thank God my family is comfortable. last sunday is our omsify sunday at church. and I’m so happy despite of no electricity in our place. but the electricity came back at 11:30 am sunday morning. I’m screaming at the top of my lungs because finally!! I’m going to sleep in my bed na rin. yey!!

after all the struggles we’ve been through these past few days, still I want to thank the Lord for keeping me and my familt safe. a
