YC goes to Camp Aguinaldo. :)


yesterday our Youth Choir was invited to sing in a thanksgiving/ ecumenical mass held at Camp Aguinaldo for the Philippine Military Academy Batch 36 (if i'm not mistaken). :) 

the celebration was prepared by Tita Linette's boss, a retired Colonel and the last remaining soul of their batch. he is already 95 years old but looked young, healthy and happy. he even danced the Gangnam Style with Renzie and Kristel. :) 

what touched me the most was when he gave his speech. he thanked everyone who came especially the families of the late heroes of our nation, he said that he will try to be here on earth forever for them, to remember the brave men of his batch by organizing this kind of celebration for them. i really hope he will be. :) 

here are some photos, enjoy! :)

the man behind it all :)

fastforward: update :)


do you guys remember the post i made last Semptember? :) 

about FAST FORWARD 2012. here's the link just in case you've missed it. :)

oh...the event was fantastically successful!
if i were to give a grade for it, its an A! 

i think i'll never get tired of saying this: i couldn't believe that i met the cream of the crop, the amazing, talented artists, directors and videographers who made their names by doing the things they loved most. all thanks to CANAAN CELEBRATIONS by Jets and Rhona. :)

some of them are the countries best advertising creators and directors. they are the masterminds behind each catchy and unique commercials aired on TV. *sigh. i really couldn't believe to meet them. plus we (the team) got to listen to their lectures! *yey! that's a bonus!

and let's not forget 2 of the renowned wedding videographers, Jason Magbanua and Ms. Sheena from Mayad Studios!!!!!!♥  why am i so excited about them? i'll just make a new post about that.☺

sorry for the long intro. i would just want to give you guys a gist of the event. :P 

here are some of the photos Kuya Jets took from his camera! thanks Kuya Jets!

prints on sale! :))


today A and me with a couple of good friends celebrated our 27th month together.♥ yey! another good thing about this day was i got an UKAY blog for you guys!

it was really random...i wanted to look at some ukay stores in Pasay but we were currently in Manila. luckily we passed by Central Station. there in the midst of the crowd stand a humble ukay-ukay. another good thing was THEY WERE ON SALE. :) 

when i was looking at these i realized i haven't got or i have a few floral or paisley patterns on my clothing. i often have those solid dark colored shirts, cardigans and blouses. since i'm feeling kinda girly are the few items i got: 

a pretty beige blouse with floral pattern and pearl buttons (55php)
paisley satin blouse (55php)
acid wash high waist-ed shorts (65php) 
okay this last piece is kind of a wild card. i have never tried printed leg wear or leggings before because they would absolutely make my bottom half a little bigger BUT i could still make it work. :P if not...WHO WANTS THEM? haha

 had a really nice day. lunch with A's chorale-mates, dinner with our two closest friends. :) and a long walk home. loved every minute of it!♥
i hope you guys had a nice Wednesday!

the queen Bee's 22nd.♥

hello! :)

nice to be back again. so last Saturday, 11-09-12, was Abby's (Abz, Bee, MR) 22nd birthday celebration held at UNO Pizzeria by the sea @MOA. it was like a mini reunion for us. i haven't seen these people for a lonnnngggg time. 

are you wondering why Abby has so many nicknames? haha. that's because she has a very long name: MARY ROSE AVEGAIL VASQUEZ BAYONITO. see? while i got 3 letters for my name. you can even call her rose, well i don't know if some people call her that, but all of us calls her Abby. 

we were together since EVER. :) we started the 1st grade together and we reunited when we were in the 4th grade, went to the same highschool and graduated from the next one we attended. :) i remember our phone calls that would last like forever, talking about crushes, clothes, how to do this and how to do that, what if some guy wanted to hatid at sundo her or me in our homes. something like that. hahaha. the topics are endless. i could even remember me telling her that i would help her plan her dream wedding and design her gown...oh memories of those days are really special. i can talk to her about everything, without her judging me like some kind of freak. :) 

thank you abby for the wonderful night! you know bee, i'm always here for you and the rest of the gang :) it was really nice seeing everyone. to know how their lives have been since high school. well, i hope to get together this coming holidays! i love you to bits Abby!♥

here are some photos:

intense Saturday! :)

hello people! :)

QUESTION: have you ever been on a jam-packed weekend day??? full of fun activities that gets your adrenaline pumping? well i'm sure everybody has been on it. :) and guess what i experienced it just a few days ago. 

last Saturday came by so fast and the day passed in a snap! my day started like this:

  • early morning meeting with daddy Dax. :) for the church and for the youth ministry. 
  • went home, ate lunch then i have to get ready for Caleb's 1st birthday party.
  • be at Caleb's party in Magallañes Village. *yey party!
  • head to Dylann's (my inaanak) 1st birthday party.
  • head home, meet tita Gay, Zyg and Abby.
  • have coffee @ illy. :)
whew! my day couldn't get any better! early in the morning meeting up with one of the most brilliant minds i know in the church was inexpiable! i came up with a realization that he will be guiding us as we journey to the future, serving the church. :)

Caleb's party was a HIT! :) there were so many babies! i love kids and just being around them makes me want to give them all a big bear-hug! everyone enjoyed the games prepared by the Cuachon family and kuya Jetts and ate Rhona. i personally liked the Bring Me game with a twist. the food was also yummy; we all loved the mango crepes! even Manong Marisa, our suking ice cream merchant, was there to give us his famous ice creams!

after Caleb's, A and me headed to another birthday party! Dylann is my newest inaanak. he is a son of one of my closest friends in high school and in college. i played with him but he can't stop looking or staring at A with his big brown eyes. haha. he's such a cutie. too bad  i did not get to take pictures.

the last agenda of the day was to meet my tita, zyg and abby. :) we discovered this coffee shop in National Bookstore in Glorietta called illy. i've been on this coffee shop but in a different branch before. just in case you guys are sick of starbucks and milk teas (no offense) i urge you to try this shop. not only does the coffee and frappes taste good but also the pastries and cakes available. :)
