Post-Christmas Fun

I promised myself I won't be stuck at home during my days off. My mother is mad at me for doing so but I really need a break. I didn't even get to spend Christmas Eve with my family. At least I went to church with them before I dragged my butt to work. A couple of days ago, I tagged my sis along and we were up and running. Last December 26, Ian had a belated birthday treat and we watched The Bloomfields perform in Eastwood.

Last December 27, The Philippine Tolkien Society had its annual Christmas party at Reitch's place. It's been a while since I met with the hobbitsesss and it was fun! Ian took great pics and you can view them all here. Here are samples:

Pre-Christmas Blues

A few days from now and it's gonna be Christmas once again. As much as I would want to, I won't be able to spend Christmas eve with my family. *sniff* This is the 2nd time I'll be away from home during Christmas eve. I'll probably be able to attend mass with them but I have to go to work after that. Good thing my leave application for New Year's eve was approved. I watched Avenue Q with Ian last Wednesday and I enjoyed it a lot. I have two Christmas parties and a Bloomfields gig I am looking forward to before the year ends. I can't wait for that! I've been working too hard I think and I really need a break. I can't wait for 2008! I know it's gonna be an additional year for me and I'm getting older but I know there are going to be better things in store. I wonder if the new year will bring a new spark to my currently non-existent love life? Hahaha! Que sera sera.

with friends by the Rockwell Christmas tree

Our company Christmas party happened last December 16, 2007 at the Rockwell Tent, Powerplant Mall. There's good food, good music and free overflowing booze! Too bad we had to end it before midnight because some of us had to go to work. Hahaha! Bummer. Pictures galore here (click click).

Harry Potter Update!

It's been a while since I last blogged and I missed so much from the online community. Harry Potter fans, are you ready for the next movie "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince"?

This is the first official pic from Mugglenet:

Here is a sneak peek of the filming from YouTube:

Is it me or is Neville looking really dashing now? Hehe! =)

Friday, December 07, 2007


Have you ever wanted something you can never have? It's like looking at a display window and seeing something beautiful. You know you can afford it one of these days but the thing is, it's not for you to own anymore. Someone else owns it. Do you steal it away? Are you going to follow "The Secret" and just believe that the thing is indeed meant for you even if the odds are against you? Or do you wait for something else that may be as wonderful but is altogether different from what you wanted? How sure are you that there is going to be another beautiful one out there?

My mind is wandering again. Good thing my work week starts today. I know I'll be distracted. I think that's a good thing. Oh and I watched "The Golden Compass" last Wednesday. It's like the faster and shorter version of the book. I like the movie. Most of the scenes came from the book so purists can really enjoy watching the film. I can't wait for the 2nd and 3rd installment of "His DarkMaterials". Last night, Jack TV even showed a trailer of "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian". That's another film I am looking forward to. The actor who plays Prince Caspian is another one I'm looking out for. Hahaha! At least these wants, I know, will be satisfied when I watch the movies. Reality, however, is another scenario. *sigh*

Gaiman High (Again)

Neil Gaiman was here in 2005 and I can't pass this chance to see him again in person. There was no booksigning but then I sacrificed sleep to see one of my favorite authors in person and I am not sorry for it. I even got to see his cute son! Hahaha! I met my friends and bought the books and I even won in the raffle for a signed bookmark! Woot!

For My Sister

It's been a while since I was online to blog. I just want to tell my sister a very (belated) Happy Birthday (November 26)!!! I can't find the time to make a really nice pic, so I made this instead. I know it shows your "stalker" side (Hahaha!) but I'm sure this will bring a smile to your face.

Tell me if you want me to change this pic. I know you might kill me for posting this one. Hahaha!

Good luck! I know today is the 2nd day of your Nursing Licensure Exams and I'm sure you'll pass. Wa-hey!!! =)
