My Main Man: Luciano


The boy is lazy, always sleeping and always hungry but I love him to pieces.

He's just the sweetest ever. He's Half/half. half american domestic cat/half pusakal. LOL.

Just when youre out of the shower, here comes this cat rubbing his nose all over you.

But he's really sweet., and super playful. He likes to run around with you.

but I cant keep up. hello, cheetah stamina versus pansy lil ol me.


lately he's been bringing this ugly girly cat home. it breaks my heart! my little luciano is growing up. :c

Sleepy Hollow: Of Being Awake for 50 hours!

Like two weeks ago, last week was hectic. And by hectic I mean I didnt get to sleep.
It was one event after another. it started off Thursday, I had to squeeze in getting my haircut,going baby shopping and some work plus dinner with a friend at cyma, shang all in one day.

but nothing had prepared me for friday. after my IVT completion which was night,(10pm-6am)
I went straight to makati, then to batangas for a wake I had to go to.
the morning after I went straight to cubao, then to festival mall, then to batangas for my godson's christening. then straight to a photo exhibit in LRI Plaza then to Serendra for dinner at Conti's.

How did I last for 50 hours?

Vitamin C and Vitwater. thats all. It wasnt funny freally. I looked like a fucking owl I tell you. I had to conceal my eyebags err..eye luggages.

not funny.

anyway, It was hectic and I'm thankful to God that I was able to do everything without collapsing on the floor face first.

Fire Bomb

After FC in Legazpi Village I rode the train home. It was a terrible day. My left foot got sprained and my vintage leather arm band got thrown off the rails. thanks to the stampede loving train riders. I literally almost wanted to jump off and get it. some friendly people urged me to ge it but i said no, one last picture is all i need.

after all I had bigger things bothering me, one that almost left me crying in the bathroom. one that will probably leave me soaking in the bathtub later in lavender bubbles. I dont do long baths. only when im depressed.

Last night I wanted to throw the towel in. But I cant. because i dont want to. like what Ms. Fenty said, "Sometimes it takes a thousand tries to win, the wait will be ova".

BTS - Fabe Clothing Shoot

I was late. goodness ONE HOUR!

I was feeling a bit under the weather.
During hair and make up I almost fell asleep because i really wasnt feeling well.

when we were shooting parang mag cocollapse ako. i couldnt balance myself and the simple act of contracting my muscles I had a hard time doing

but it went ok, i think! haha.

it was a very fast shoot, it took longer for hair and make up to finish.

500 Days Of Summer

It has been what? A month since this "iconic" chick-flick hit the theaters and I'm just blogging about it now! haha! forgive me, I've had too much stuff on my hands that I had no time to give a piece of my mind on this film. bettr late than never!

so here's my take on the whole summer-tom love-drunk-fiasco:

I like the movie because its so real. in lay mans term, "may-mga-lecheng-tao-talaga-na-walang-magawa-kung-hindi-mag-pa-asa-at-maging-super-insensitive-na-di-pa-sana-hinampas-na-lang-sila-ng-one-half-one-fourth-ng-walis-tingting-at-di-na-lang-nagpakita-forever-kesa-manira ng-diskarte-ng-iba-na-nag-ta-try-mag-move-on!".

the line i hate the most is "thats when i knew, what I wasnt sure with you".

I hate this line because its so blunt.

you know, in this day and age we could all use a semblance of blissful ignorance. like what the famous poet said, "what you dont know cant hurt you".

yes yes, we all need to know the truth, but sometimes, there are things better left unsaid. love is an investment so the least you could do is respect even it means keeping part of the truth to yourself.

and now i will wait for miley cyrus' the last song. haha! im kidding!

Mr Ramyun: Korean Beef Noodles

After finishing two shoots, we had dinner at this quaint korean noodle house/convenience store. I'm pretty familiar with korean food since my sister used to work for a korean and I also did a restaurant review for Sorabol in greenhills. However I will be the first to admit that Korean is not my flavor because frankly it is too spicy.

Mr. Ramyun

I requested for the noodles to be not spicy. lo and behold it was still spicy!

I was pleasanlty surprised that I was able to finish the bowl! It was quite authentic than my previous eats. I like how the spicyness doesnt stay too long. much like wasabi. which was quite different with Sorabol as I almost vomited from the extreme "anghang".

I even finished the complementary kimchi! I was so suprised that It was really good. I was actually wanting for another bowl!

hopefully when I go back I could try the ice cream as well as the other noodles :)

thanks to sir jason for taking me to Mr. Ramyun :))

Zuni Wine Bar and Restaurant , Greenbelt 5

After my mentally stressing IVT training I ran from north edsa to makati to make it for my 6pm dinner with the HS friends. It's Sam's birthday so I had to be there no matter what.

Actually I had ditched a 4-6 appointment in Absinth because I still had training plus I wont make it for dinner.

It was my first time to dine at ZUNI.

I tell you, the food was amazing, the interiors were truly refined. I love the oil painting on the ceiling! it has that renaissance feel to it.

and calling themselves a wine bar did not dissappoint!

the wine was the tru stand out. it was a very light chardonnay that complemented the food very well!
