Shoes, Books and Food

Shoes, Books and Food

Yesterday was a Saturday, which means it’s the time of the week wherein Mac and I would go to random places together and eat–a LOT. ^_^ We decided to go to my hometown in Pasay to look at Class A Nike shoes at Cartimar, Libertad. We were actually going to buy basketball shoes for his dad in U.K., although I could tell that he’s been itching to buy his own new pair of shoes, but he just bought a new…

Book Review: Bohemia by Veronika Carnaby

Book Review: Bohemia by Veronika Carnaby

Sometime in mid-December last year, I received an e-mail from Ms. Veronika Carnaby herself, asking me to write a review for her debut novel, Bohemia. Along with the e-mail came a free digital copy of the novel itself, and I couldn’t be more grateful about it. I still could not believe that she chose me and my blog to write and feature a review about her novel; it’s such an honor to be one of the chosen few. So enough…

MonDATE

Today was almost filled with disappointments and difficult school work, but thank God for my fiance, Mac, for saving me from all of it. I went back to my college this morning instead of going to the school where I was having my internship to just basically run a few errands for my thesis and my incomplete subjects. Getting the form and the manuscript was easy, but having the routing form signed by the editor was as difficult as walking…

Bonne Année

04Happy New Year! This is quite a late post, but I got quite busy with my new job and my unexpected return to my internship. But more of that later, my family had an 80’s themed New Year’s party last December 31st and it totally rocked more than we expected. My aunts and my parents were the ones who organized the family party, and it was really fun and exciting. My aunts were all there, including my younger cousins and…

Book Review: Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End

Book Review: Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End

I kicked off my 2013 with a Zombie novel because I was really getting impatient from waiting for the season comeback of The Walking Dead. I am just really grateful of Goodreads as it has been my guide to great books recently. I have my Goodreads account for a while now, but it wasn’t until recently that I made use of it. LOL I found a good zombie book written by a Spanish author and the first book in his…

Beatles Shirt Galore

Beatles Shirt Galore

Mac is a man of surprises and I’m like the total opposite. So when he called me this morning and told me that he’s going somewhere to buy something instead of going straight home, I knew he was up to something. I had this urge to force the secret out of him, and it took me quite a long time to finally let him tell me what he was going to buy until he finally gave in and told me that…

Les Miserables 2012

Les Miserables 2012

That’s right, Les Miserables made it’s debut in the U.S. recently and I couldn’t be more thrilled as it would be coming to Philippine cinemas on January 16th. Les Mis is my number one favorite musical and novel of all time and I might have watched a couple of adaptations of it on film and television, and in various languages too. So you can say I’m a bit of a freak when it comes to it. It’s also a Broadway…

I’ll Be Home For Christmas (Cover)

I’ll Be Home For Christmas (Cover)

It’s Christmas eve! And while everyone is busy with the small party for the kids in the house, I was busy (for a brief amount of time) making a cover of She and Him’s version of I’ll Be Home for Christmas. Listen to it on the Soundcloud widget below. 🙂 The song was stuck in my head for days that I just had to do a cover of it. I really loved She and Him’s rendition of the song so…

Off Campus Internship and Other Rants

Off Campus Internship and Other Rants

Nearly a month ago, I started my off campus internship in the Our Lady of Peace School here in Antipolo and mind you, I’m having a blast! I just seem to enjoy waking up early every day and going to work, waiting for my first class, and well, you know I enjoy teaching. My cooperating teacher gave birth, so she’s on a maternity leave for I don’t know how long so her load was passed on to me and Felice….

Compliments

DID YOU KNOW that most of the successful businessmen in the world do not technically have a high IQ? Instead, they possess a high level of EMOTIONAL QUOTIENT in which they use to, not only keep their business together, but also their employees happy, encouraged and successful as they are. Think about it, a good and honest tap on someone’s shoulder could make them a better person, and what better way to enjoy their triumph is to be happy for…
