All those Green Icky Stuff

I am so proud of myself. Very, very, very proud. Today marks the 31st day of my journey in becoming a vegetarian. I haven't eaten any pork, beef and chicken since the eve of February 28. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to accomplish my then month-long goal because I tell you when you see my brothers eat, you'll think that they're having their last meal on Earth. But I was able to resist. It amazed me knowing that I have quite a good hold on myself.

Potato Chips? I think I'll pass. google.com
I'm not a Vegan, I'm only a Vegetarian. There's a difference. I don't eat meat, pork or any poultry but I eat seafood, eggs, and dairy products. I eat veggies too, on a daily basis. I love fruits so very much. The trick in eating fruits is, you should only eat one kind at a time. For example you want honeydews, then you should stick with honeydews alone. This is the mono diet ;) I don't necessarily detest potatoes but I don't eat them if they're fried. Even potato chips are a no no. I have been observing this potato craze since last year. So yes, I haven't eaten fries since last year.

So, what kinds of food do I eat now, you might ask. Here they are:

Vegetarian Mexican food - I love Mexican foods! The cheesier, the better google.com

Another of my favorites: maki rolls. Teriyaki Boy serves sumptuous vegetarian makis. google.com

My breakfast is usually composed of my favorite cereals, Fruit Loops, an apple and a glass of milk google.com

I can't let go of my favorite junk food google.com

Even ice cream, I still eat.
So you see, it's not all salad and all those green icky stuff. Besides, I'm doing those animals I do not anymore eat a favor, don't I? :)


P.S. Before trying becoming a Vegetarian, consult your dietitian first :)

Leaves as Big as Me

with my cousin Ram
See those gigantic leaves behind us? They're tobacco leaves. I feel like I'm in the age of the dinosaurs, where trees grow as tall as buildings.

In one of my entries in Chictopia, I mentioned my short-lived obsession over the 'reporter-look'. I was still in this phase when these pictures were taken, thus the outfit choice. Oh, if you haven't heard of the reporter-look, don't fret. It's just a look I coined. Vest is a necessity. Hahahaha.

Pictures in this entry were taken exactly a year and two months ago, outside our humble abode in Ilocos.

Dancer In Me

Photobucket

There's a story behind this photo. As everyone was readying themselves to my cousin's first birthday party (pictures in this day here, here and here), my uncle put a random CD in the stereo and turned the volume to the maximum. I was on the stairs then, getting my picture taken. As soon as the music started, I stopped smiling for the camera and danced instead. My dad, my uncle and my little cousin danced away with me. It was really very funny. I wish my aunts and mom took videos of us.

Remnants from the Cruise

I was browsing the channels last sunday when I came across with the Filipino movie All My Life. The thing that made me tune in was that, the location set was in somewhere that I probably would remember all my life. I'm talking about the Star Virgo Ship.

If you're planning to go outside the country, and are into comfort and pampering, then I suggest you start leafing through Star Cruises site. I really had a good, if not the best, birthday celebration on board. It's now your turn to experience such grandiose adventure.

There are days when I feel like I'm the geekiest person in the world.

I had to report a business study awhile ago and so I thought, that's reason enough for me to wear heels in school again.

Please don't be in love with someone else


"Please don't be in love with someone else. Please don't have somebody waiting on you."

For weeks now, Taylor Swift's Enchanted keeps on playing in my head. As of the time being, this is my favorite among all of her self-written songs. As soon as I've heard it, I was enchanted. And here's the twist: Adam Young of the Owl City was the inspiration of the song. The moment he was able to put two and two together, he thanked Taylor through what he says is the most eloquent form of communication. Thus Owl City's Enchated was born.

Dear friends, if you are wondering where I went to this afternoon, then I better tell you now. I heard MASS :) I don't have to explain myself now, do I? One more thing, I put lipstick on voluntarily, a first!!! :>

Good good songs, aren't they? Adam Young, you are the sweetest <3

Friend Files: The Good Influence

"A friend is someone who will always be with you through thick and thin."


When I talk, she listens. When I whine, she understands. When I'm sad, she makes me happy. When I smile, she instantly knows why. When I shout in frustration, she makes sure everyone can 'hear' my anger. When there's a homework, she reminds me to do them. When I do something wrong, she covers up for me. When I'm late, she signs the attendance paper for me. When I failed to do what I have to do, she does something to remedy it. When someone badmouths me, she sticks up for me. When I start a fight with someone else, she fights with me. When I'm losing all reasons to go to school, she tells me things that can get me back on track. When I'm becoming impatient, she becomes too kind, so kind that I would rather laugh at what's wasting my time than continue wishing for that something to evaporate. When I'm losing faith in myself, she reminds me of things that can make me thankful for (no false humility intended). But when she tells me to shut up, I shut up.


Everything she does results to something that would benefit me. With her, I feel like I have to do the right thing. That I have to be able to distinguish what is just from what I think is just. That I have to be the better version of myself. And oddly enough, she made me realize I love doing the right things. That there really is an appropriate time for everything :)

Friend Files: Sisterhood

Oftentimes, you would meet someone or sometwo whom you could easily bond with. Just a mere look on them, you'll easily say that you guys share a lot of things in common. Say, you have the same taste in clothes, or same ill feelings towards another person, or same negative comments on the things that are happening around, or the same insecurities that no matter what, you will never reveal to someone outside your group of three. It takes one to know one, they say. For me, those someone or sometwo are in the persons of Hannah Dar Juan and Lina Domingo. Perhaps we've started becoming friends because of negative reasons. But the friendship remained and got stronger because of positive ones. Every now and then though, we have these special cases of love-hate relationship. Can't live with them, can't live without them. We're normal persons, yknow! :))


Photobucket

Whenever I need food for my thoughts, I meet up with them. And when we're together, we end up always in a heated debate, someone uses her loudest voice, someone opposes the other person's arguments, and someone confirms what the other has just said. But seldom do we play the same role again. From apocalypse, to possibilities outside our galaxy; from ukay finds, to the most expensive clothing or jewelry; from what we think is our strongest trait, to our most hidden insecurities; from the politics, to religion; from the ways in getting higher grades, to the ways that could probably lead to our failure; from our past, to our future - everything under the sun, and beyond, we talk about. And when we discuss things, we consider all possibilities. More often than not, when everything has been said and done, we find ourselves amazed at how informative and well-thought our opinions turned up to be.

I intentionally blurred this last photo. The more decent ones will be uploaded on saturday :)


No one, absolutely no one, has the right to make them cry. Only I have that special right :> I enjoy exercising this right, just so you know.
