Annebisyosa: Keri naman ni lola

Wednesday media: Annebisyosa

This album hadjust been recently released in the market, under the distribution of Viva Records. I surprised even myself why I bought this album. First, this is the second original album I ever have and the first cd I ever bought. hahaha. I am not a die-hard fanatic, and I simply can not put into one word the reason why.

With this entr, i will try to analyze why I shelled out 250 pesos for a 8-track song album.

1) Annebisyosa, as the title says, is a pinoy toggling of Anne and the word ambisyosa, which means ambitious. ACS is not known to be a singer, sometimes she sings off key during performace too, but never the less she carries herself with humor doing such acts.

2) The album covers most songs I've heard and love: Alone, Bizarre Love Triangle, Too Many Walls and Girls just wanna have fun... Not that I don't like the other selections but this are my personal choice out of the album.

3) This is one heck of feel good album. Feel good in a sense that it would hurt you trying to sing-sync with ACS knowing that you wont have to hit a high note the right way.

4) Listening to the album feels like you are inside a KTV room with ACS, chilling and hanging out. Parang anjan sya sa tabi mo kumakanta.

5) There is, in everyone of us, the ambitious self. It may be in singing, acting or dancing. And if buying this album has made ACS' ambition become a reality then I just supported her...

I am babaw. I know. Wala lang.

I'm supposed to have an entry for friday vogue, but for lack of enthusiasm to feature anything about clothes and stuff, i might have skipped writing an entry. However, I was blog hopping and found this game, blogged by Shengmarie.


I love word puzzle but somehow it took a long time for me to see adjectives out of the table. Me? broken? maybe. funny? not. pretty? um... no comment. lol.

I'm tagging my friends for this: Dee, Zee, Sha, Kits, Aya, Khal, Doc Ai, Kuya Dan, Tessa and Arbing :)

I'm inspired! lol. I've found a new way for me to keep on with blogging, aside from making this hive my personal journal. If i think of something to feature, i might as well categorize them, right?

So far, I have come up with the following categories:

Monday foodtrip: features on food. Something delectable to the tastebud
Tuesday reads: focuses on books or write-ups and authors
Wednesday media: all about sounds, movies, and gadgets
Thursday icon: features on people or celebrities
Friday vogue: aka fashion friday for other bloggers
Saturday travel: places, sights and excursions
Sunday devotion: all-inspiring features for the soul and celebration love

*crossed-fingers* i'll make a habit out of this. As a primer, i would like to feature for Thursday icon:

Richard Yap a.k.a Chen Sy (of My Binondo Girl)

I was really curious about him for two reasons:

1) He is a new face in television and I admire how he naturally acts with veteran artists (later din I found out that he was in a tvc for a food chain)

2) He is years older than me but amazingly I see a certain charm in him that I admire like how I admire hollywood actors in the likes of Jackie Chan, Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp and a lot more..

Yesterday's episode of My Binondo Girl, I really applaud Richard (first name basis na ha!). I was super kilig with him and Ai-Ai. The kilig factor that seems effortless just by making that hidden smile. I found out that a lot in twitter has also noticed him. Way to go, Richard! :D

first schmutter attempt

I really appreciate posts about fashion and I've never gotten the guts to diligently blog about what I wore until today. haha. with a few exceptions, of course, when I get to attend socials but such entries would point out to the occasion rather than to my garb.

My first attempt:

I am not good at posing. I want to focus on this Elephant bottom pants I found during my trip at the big metro. And this brown pumps, I rarely wear it, this is actually the second time. haha.

1, 2, 3 fire!!!

I am never a fan of firearms. I cringe at the sight of a gun and tremble at the sound of a gun shot. My dad used to own a gun and I remember asking him if I could join him whenever he goes to the firing range. Not once did he allow me. I never even caught sight of him cleaning his gun.

Over the weekend, I went to the firing range with some friends and for the first time, not only did I get to hold a gun but i even got to fire a .45 three times. hahaha!

I don't know if I'll ever get to like guns but it was sure an experience being able to fire it. Maybe one day I'll buy myself a .22 handgun. If I see a cute one. just a thought.

yay! it has arrived! my new pair of suelas :)

This is my second pair.

I actually bought two llanura suelas flats online. I ordered Llanura in Sky Blue size 7 and the Tangerine Yellow in size 7.5 , which was out of stock so I had it replaced with the Charcoal. I ordered in different sizes so that I can be sure which size really fits me, even though the suelas website has sizing guides and i also measured my feet. I got confused still since my first pair was a 7. True enough the sky blue fits but it looks like my feet will at any time explode, if you get my drift. So, instead of shipping it again, I decided to find someone who
would like the pair. Luckily, I did. Within hours, I bid farewell to the almost 3rd pair. No heavy heart for me, I'll buy another pair soon :)

I bought my first pair (manejo dos choco) at wagw.

I've been introduced to suelas by my bff, dee of chuckanddee. Its only now I got the courage (and the money. haha!) to order online since wagw offers limited style and stocks. Its very comfortable and I can't wait to fold it or tuck it in its case when I go travel. whopeee!!!

I hope suelas will show new collection too. Too bad this season, they would not be making the laceless uaap sneaks.

If you want to have a pair of these innovative, space saver, and trendy kind of footwear check out suelas :)

bee's (lucky) concert attendance

I originally had nothing to do for the weekend. I have no plans but to lie in my bed while the TV is on and wouldn't really care if I doze of. I looked at my fingernails and toenails and was totally appalled at the look and decided to treat myself to some mani-pedi. I bought along with me two polishes since I'm sure the parlor doesn't have its shade.

I put off going to the mall since my heart will be broken once again. Color Me Badd and All-4-One, two best group of the 90's are in town. My bff, dee mentioned a month earlier about the gig but it was only two days before the event that I got to confirm it. I was hoping to go there with D but she had some priorities.

Little did I know luck was on my side. Haha! A friend from college texted if I would be watching the concert, I said no. She asked if I would want to watch using her ticket, I jokingly replied, "sure, basta libre!" . Haha! VIP ni, PWA arrangement lang. her text said. I was like, holy cow! for real?

I was at the venue, early. Bwahaha! An elderly couple sat on the seat next to me. I was a bit surprised that they would watch the concert. I wondered to myself, are they even familiar with the songs?

When the group when on stage, I was filled with excitement! I was singing along with them. Color me Bad came in first and after two songs All-4-one performed! I was enjoying myself even more, when soem members would come down from the stage. Kevin of Color me Badd even sat in a vacant seat next to a couple and I was just a few seats away!!!

I was having a blast, not minding the bored faces on the couple next to me. When All-4-one called two ladies from the audience and serenaded them with "As beautiful as you", my heart was melting. I was feeling every word. Maybe its because those two girls were my namesake. both of them were named Mae/May. haha!

Color me Badd sang "The Earth, the sun and the rain" and "I adore Mi amore", which was no. 1 way back in '92.

Both groups came on stage to perform MJ songs, the concert was a tribute to the King of Pop anyway. They sang "Billy Jean", "Thriller", "Man in the Mirror", and more. I could have been dancing on my feet but I noticed that I was surrounded by elderly couples and if I did, I would be alone so I just clapped and sang along.

The group did a little showdown, doing a capella, saying these were the roots of their existence. Color me badd sang "Hush, somebody's calling my name". I know for sure what All-4-one is going sing, I was not wrong. They sang "So much in love". One of my all-time fave song. They also sang, "I swear" with a sign language for the chorus. I will learn that one!

I had a blast. A wonderful time. I should have a camera for moments like this, damn that battery charger went missing. My hands were red from all that clapping. I don't care.

long weekend

It's been a long time since I've been able to go on a vacation. And by that it means fresh air, a time for relaxation. I was so thankful for the long weekend since I was able to go visit my niece, and be able to go visit MSU days before she celebrates her golden age.

I was so happy spending time with Ycey that I didn't really mind spending all day at home, except for a few hours that we went to cafeteria to check out the Padian Fair 2011.

Just wanna share the pictures of my niece. I'm such a proud tita :D
