A Walk to Remember

Hello! I just wanna tell you that I just finished reading the book, "A Walk to Remember" yesterday. I know. I know it's kind of late-- as in very late-- but I just read it because I had no other better thing to do. And since it's a Nicholas Sparks I thought I might give it a try.

I thought it was like the movie and since I've seen the movie when I was in high school I might just forget about the thought of reading it. But I was wrong! Very wrong. 

I must admit. The movie by Mandy Moore made me cry but the book?! Unstoppable! Like just imagine me trying to hold back tears while talking to my mom facing the window so she couldn't see me crying. So you might tell me, "Heck! Why didn't you just put the book down?"

Well, I couldn't. I tried to put it down to stop my tears from falling but I ended up wanting to finish the book up to the end. It was a surge of emotions and even if I had placed it down, I would surely cry thereafter.

I like this passage in the Bible so much. I hope my husband would read me this.

This was one of my favorite lines. Thus, the photograph.

Latest Finds

Hello! Well this post’s kinda mixed up but I will try my best to make you understand all the pictures, make them coordinate and feel like there’s one theme. Haha. The theme’s actually about the stuff I’ve acquired lately. I don’t have a “theme title” so to speak but I’ll try to make it as fun as possible.

First on my list is this really nice Forever 21 Zebra-striped dress. Ooh! I just love this dress. I like how it actually makes you look like you’re wearing Zebra skin when it’s just some piece of deceiving cloth. Anyway, it’s really nice, so weee!

Merry Christmas!

Hello, everyone! Wishing you the best Christmas ever! Well, this photo was taken at SM City here in Iloilo. I had a busy day that day considering that I had been walking and strolling the entire day from like 9AM to 6PM. Whew!

That's my adopted [though not legally] brother, Rafhael, 
my father and my mom. So you know where I got my looks, huh?

Hmm... I must tell you that I was born to a Catholic mother and a father who has this religion of [I don't know the denomination!]. Simply put, he's a Christian. I know we all are, but it's non-Catholic so some people have this notion of referring to them as Christians, if you know what I mean.

This one's kinda dark. 'Twas too late when I figured out my father used the flash.

Strolling, Nail Art and Food Tripping

Hmm… Have you ever experienced feeling like the ‘day’ was so looong? I mean, the one you feel when you’ve done a lot of things in a short period of time.

Wearing Allen's hat... Haha.
Well, this was one of those days and I ended up sitting on the benches of every shoe store while my father and mother had to look for the right kind of shoes they wanted to buy and it was only 6:00 PM. I didn’t want to buy shoes. As for me, I had just bought shoes the other month and I’ve been trying to be my best spendthrift possible! Haha.

This is Grace, my Taiwanese student.
Well, let me begin by telling you that what was just supposed to be a day to a salon turned out to be one day of a heck! My Taiwanese student, Grace, asked me to accompany her and a friend to the salon, so they can had both their nails and toenails cleaned and ‘nail-art-ed’ for that matter.

Black base
I really liked this one!

Beige Bag with Gold and Silver Chain Straps

My addiction for unique bags started just a few years ago. I always admired my mom for her good taste on bags. However, it was only a few years ago that I began using them myself.

I just like the interlocking gold and silver chain straps!

The mesh on the bottom part is also good. It's just soo unique.

Live and Let Live: My Stand on Self- Righteousness

I'm pretty sure you know what this is. So, here's my next contribution.

I now have a column name: From My Beautiful Mind

This article talks about religion, and how I think some people can just be too judgmental because they follow their religion's standards and practices.

I've met people who are atheists [especially now that I'm working at a language center, where I meet Koreans, Taiwanese and Japanese], but they just live life fearing authorities and have lived half of their lives following the rules. It's just amazing how they do that when they don't believe in an omnipotent One.

These people do not have a God, but I think I respect them more than self-righteous individuals. I just think that it's better to be silent than to keep on protesting and telling others how good your religion and practices are compared to the rest because at the end of the day, no one wins over a debate on religion. We just need to have a little respect for each other.

All About Shoes

I really like shoes! Here are just a few pictures of my favorite wedge and a few pics of my dream shoes. I don't even know if it will look good on me but I just like looking at them.

Mary Kay Cosmetics

Today, my mom and I were invited by my classmate in college to attend a seminar sponsored by Mary Kay. 

The Time Wise Collection. I just love this set!

Limited Edition nail polish. We won this during the raffle draw.

Good to Have Them Around

Lia and Cherry are my trusted friends. Oh! Don’t get me wrong. They’re not the only friends I trust. Of course I have a few others but they’re the two who always keep their promises no matter what. Having them as friends make me feel like I have this “sense of direction” in my life.

I always look up to them. Aside from the fact that they’re very smart and beautiful individuals, I think I owe them a lot for getting me back on track and listening to me whenever I’m down and need someone to talk to.

They’re my source of strength and the persons I get energy from and the drive to keep me going.

Lia, by the way, is taking up Medicine. So maybe after 3 more years from now, I might be calling her Dr. Delfin. She’s got a popular blog entitled “What, Where and Wearabouts”.

This blog showcases her love for fashion and her unique sense of style. Also, you’ll find many interesting things about her family, her other ‘loves’ and more about who she really is.

Cherry on the other hand is pursuing the nursing career. She’s been volunteering for 9 straight months now and she’s really doing well. Unlike me, she continues to believe that volunteering will make her reach her dreams and aspirations.

Oh well. Here I am feeling a little confused about what career to pursue. After an interview with the dean for having been on the waitlist after getting a score of 61 on the abstract reasoning [Haha!], the dean has finally allowed me to defer my enrolment for the next school year provided that I comply with their list of requirements.

Anyway, my mom doesn’t want me to take up law anymore and I’m on the verge of breaking down. Haha. Really. I don’t have a choice but I’ll continuing praying because if it’s for me, it will happen.

Not Too Late

I was browsing through some of my files when I saw these! Ahh! This was taken last November 1, 2011 at Robinson’s Mall. There was a contest for the different categories for Halloween costumes.

Some were so scary. Some were funny but nonetheless they looked like they’re really going on a Halloween costume party.

This is just going to be a brief photo blog. Hope you like it!

I didn't expect much from my day today but I really had a lot of fun. It's Friday and of course, it's FREE day. Me and my students get the chance to choose whether to have a class or not.

I spent almost the entire morning watching movies, but there's no subtitles! This makes it all difficult for students to understand. Their listening skills will surely be put to the test.

Picture-taking for IDs. Hahaha.

Triple Treat!

Well, let me begin by telling you that today is November 11, 2011 [11-11-11], considered perhaps the luckiest day for the year 2011. Also, today is the famous Pepero Day in Korea, so many students were giving us Peperos. They’re [straight] pretzels coated with chocolate, nuts or both. I was lucky enough to have received 2 Peperos coated with chocolate and almond bits. Tastes really good!

Pepero for Sir Larry and not for me...

Tradition has it that the company, Lotte, introduced the exchange of Peperos to Koreans. Some Japanese know about this special day in Korea but they seldom or perhaps never practice this good gesture of giving.

Giving Peperos is most especially common among couples— to express their love for one another. However, anyone can buy and give Pepero to whomever the person pleases. Some students say that this celebration has a commercial agendum and that is tricking Koreans into buying Peperos to increase the company’s sales.

So Proud of My Little Cousins!

This issue was supposed to come out on a Sunday but because it didn't seem like news if it had been published for more than 2 weeks, the people working for the paper may have thought of publishing it today. Then, I bought 4 copies to be given to my aunts and uncles in Cebu. Plus, a copy for the Mayor of Alegria, Cebu.

I made this article because I was so proud of my cousins although they didn't win first place. The fact that they were able to participate in an event like that made and still makes me so proud of them!

New Environment at NEO International Language Center

I must tell you that I'm no longer volunteering as a nurse trainee at our school's hospital. Instead, I now work as an English teacher at the NEO International Language Center.

This was me holding a string during our Halloween Party.

I find the place really nice! I'm with my best bud, Hannah and a co-teacher I have met [because we had the same day of interview and orientattion] Lyle.

There's always an activity every month for students.

So, I'm going to tour you a little bit to the place and show you just how happy I am to be surrounded by friendly, sincere and honest people. Well, here goes...

This is the 3rd floor and as you can see there's a big sign which says "English Zone". Even at this area, students and teachers are very much encouraged to speak English.

And this is because I thought you wanted another angle of the place. Haha.
