Coming across Paulo Coelho’s story of Ali, Aydi and the fire of friendship, I immediately thought of this gorgeous throng of kindred spirits from childhood that I am blessed to have. As 2011 was the year I was reunited with my blood sisters, I felt that 2011 was also the year for another batch of … Continue reading 2011 and Bugsy
11 April 2011 Double Six, Legian, Bali Better Über late than never. We’ve been friends for more than a decade, yet here we were at only our first trip overseas. Bugsy* invaded Bali last April for some much needed eat-pray-loving. Here’s a clip of us trying out the bungee jumps at AJ Hackett in Legian/Seminyak. It … Continue reading Bali, Bungee and Bugsy
Another long weekend well-spent. =) After watching Live Aids just the night before, we whisked ourselves away to Tidoy’s pad in Tagaytay to bum together (couldn’t imagine a better way to spend the time =P). For girls with no plans, we certainly got to do a lot together: .: crashing 2 weddings @ Sonya’s Garden … Continue reading Bugsy chills @ tagaytay
sometimes, the best plan is to not have a plan at all. i woke up a little bit earlier for a non-work day, since i had to meet tidoy and ke for some wedding-cake-tasting. yes, it’s every bit as delightful as it sounds. this was my first cake-tasting event, and i tried not to appear … Continue reading Bugsy Takes on Manila
From jam’s rat-up-your-pants surprise during the ride going to Irosin, I knew this trip was going to be eventful. Surely enough, Caloy greeted us with rainfall on our arrival. Here we were, an overexcited bunch on a getaway five years in the making, and we were welcomed by the rainy season’s first storm. Caloy does … Continue reading from team bugsy to team bagyo
Jackets? Check! Chips? Check! Extra jackets? Check!! Three reasons kept me stoked about this road trip: 1.) After a week of meandering around Toronto, today was my first time to break out of the state of Ontario. 2.) It was my nephew and niece’s first backpacking trip on a Greyhound (yey for adventure!). 3.) After … Continue reading A Day Trip to Montreal
the thing that i love about hanging out with Team Bugsy are the zany theories we throw at each other, ranging from the hands-down-insane to the this-might-be-worth-taking-a-look-at. during one of our bouts during the long weekend, a friend piped up with this conclusion — there are no good-looking guys born during our year, 1984. okay, … Continue reading shout-out for 1984 kiddos
I guess some things are just not meant to be. Yep, you guessed it right. In less than a month, I lost yet another cellphone. This September ’08 loss was brought to you by SMB Oktoberfest — mahaba-haba nga yung inuman pagkatapos. To be honest, I lost count of how many phones I’ve said goodbye … Continue reading What’s the deal with me and phones?
(For the record, I’ve got a lot of unposted entries swimming in my head, but this one DEFINITELY deserves to be jotted down, remembered, and immortalized.) It was a reunion concert, that was for sure, but not just for the Eraserheads. It was for all the 90s kiddos out there, for all the fans and … Continue reading The Eheads Reunion: An Ultraelectromagnetic Experience
Most times, I take it for granted, but I just realized that I really am surrounded by AMAZING people. For example, to my sister Ate Ting — you’re amazing. You have the biggest vault of patience out of everyone I’ve ever known, and you’re not stingy with it. You never asked to look after a … Continue reading astounding.
