Royal Vista Resort (formerly Imelda something Resort)
I was just an extra baggage for this trip since this was a get together of Riz's barkada way back junior year in USP Lahug. They called their group 'GALS'. Don't particularly know why but they're composed of loud and positive spirited girls. I'm not a part of it but feel a tight bond with them.
These girls proved my philosophy about friendship - you don't need to go out always or see each other most of the time to keep the friendship alive. I always have fun when I'm around them. Laughtrip and silly jokes are always a part of our conversations. I never feel awkward when I'm around them as they have this way of making you feel like family. Ü
Though time may not permit them to see each other on a regular basis, they still remain as cool and accommodating. Riz never feels detached or left out. That's why I like these girls because I can see how genuine they are and how happy Riz is when they're together.
To gals, long live and cheers! Sunod na sad. Ü
Me and Riz
Ella - has contagious laughter and a-loose-screw kind of attitude
Jel - has the 'ate' image and brings the group together
Mai2x - the flavor of the road that never runs our of laughtrip treats
Gegen - ms teacher and the talker (slash) listener
Cindy - the paranoid momi. :D
Don Ramon (jel's special someone)
Cindy's 2 kids
Day 1 Aftershift assembly in North Bus. Rode a mini-bus to catmon. Loud music on the bus. Was not able to concentrate on the movie in Riz's itouch Gals warming up their mouth for updates Jel's threat and plea to avoid talking about who Don Ramon is. Naturally, we did not listen and went ahead to joke about them. Ü Around 3PM, arrive in Royal Vista. Quick tour. Moments after, Cindy's little boy's head incident. Rushed to the hospital but nothing serious. Barbeque. Grilled like those larsian boys. Dinner. Tequila. Night Swimming. Truth or truth. no consequences. Got bruises from a buwis-buhay slide. failed attempts for an underwatershot. Don Ramon and Te jel now officially an item. Laughtrip. Lemon+tequila. EON Day 2 Breakfast = food last night + noodles. Ü short videoke session. no more tagay. another failed attempts for an underwatershot. Tried to get a tan but *wenk* failed Helped riz practice swimming encouraged Riz to go for the slide. She went ahead but failed. Happy she had the courage to thread a 6-7 ft pool. Laughtrip. Missed Pacquers fight but assumed he'll win. He did. Departure around 12 or 1. Got stuck in NBT due to heavy downpour. EOT.
Special thanks to Jel ug Ela sa imong gipahuwam namu aron makakuog mi. XD
Big Bang Theory Set in Pasadena, California, the show is about two fictional Caltech geniuses, one an applied physicist (Leonard Hofstadter) and the other a theoretical physicist (Sheldon Cooper), who live across the hall from an attractive blonde waitress and aspiring actress (Penny). Leonard and Sheldon's geekiness and intellect are contrasted for comic effect with Penny's social skills and common sense. An aerospace engineer, non-PhD, (Howard Wolowitz) and a particle astrophysicist (Rajesh Koothrappali) are their equally geeky and socially awkward co-workers and friends.
Our whole universe was in a hot dense state, Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait... The Earth began to cool, The autotrophs began to drool, Neanderthals developed tools, We built a wall (we built the pyramids), Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries, That all started with the big bang! "Since the dawn of man" is really not that long, As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song. A fraction of a second and the elements were made. The bipeds stood up straight, The dinosaurs all met their fate, They tried to leap but they were late And they all died (they froze their asses off) The oceans and pangea See ya wouldn't wanna be ya Set in motion by the same big bang! It all started with the big BANG! It's expanding ever outward but one day It will cause the stars to go the other way, Collapsing ever inward, we won't be here, it wont be hurt Our best and brightest figure that it'll make an even bigger bang! Australopithecus would really have been sick of us Debating out while here they're catching deer (we're catching viruses) Religion or astronomy, Encarta, Deuteronomy It all started with the big bang! Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology It all started with the big bang! It all started with the big BANG!
10.09.2010 My "Day" Marked that date on the calendar. As the dates draw near, I can't help but feel nostalgic and excited; mixed emotions I should say. The day finally snailed its way silently. I celebrate another year of existence. It was any other day. The only exception was that a surprised was served to me on an early breakfast platter. It is somewhat common us to walk through memory lane everytime we celebrate another year. This is to measure up how far we have reached or how high we have darted. But somehow these images are only brainworks until we see flatout evidences of our progress, or worst, our downfall. Riz, my fiance and the love of my life, cooked up a surprise over the past weeks to remind me of how the years of my existence was like. She stockpiled memories from people, who one way or the other, became a part of my life. People from the past and present went out of their way to sign in some of our fond memories with messages for me in my birthday book. I can't help but laugh at the different sizes and off-colored images of me growing up. I feasted on the variety of flashbacks I get everytime a page is flipped. It was indeed a happy day. It was indeed a happy birthday. I want to extend my super deepest gratitude to my highschool friends, teachers, college buds, random close friends and beloved family for sharing this surprise. I want to congratulate Riz for carefully planning and conniving with those people in making this birthday book a success. Riz, your love, creativity and thoughtfulness have made this possible. I'm sorry for my shortcomings during the time you were percolating this surprise. I love you much. Thank you. Another year has passed. Another year has been added to my age line. Many faces, places and experiences have been shared and as I scan through the pages of the book, I realized how far I have reached and at the same time, looked forward at the farthest I can still go. I realized that all the things that happened to me and all the things I have accomplished are possible because of the people who pushed me forward and helped me one way or the other. To those people (you know who you are), thank you. **some pages from the birthday book. Courtesy of Osang. thanks mat.**
With the budget shouldered by the company, our main concern was how to spend the money. The best way we could think about is to spend it in activities involving fun, food and booze. The team decided to have a team building/family day in Intosan. Good thing we decided to hold the team building in Intosan because it's only a few steps away from Pakay's BF's house. It was his birthday. Riz, Aqui and I were invited that night. Anyway, here are a few pictures and fast forward tags of what happened.
Lechon. Uber food. Pakay's BF's house.
10PM walked over to Intosan to meet Color Team.
tong-its, card game - Cyrus vs Calvin vs Balor vs Beast.
Gin+Ice Tea. 1st mix of the night.
Cyrus: 'I'm Rich, I'm drunk and I'm horny.'
Semi-drunk playing tong-its.
Welcomed Sept 26 with alcohol.
Absolut Vodka+Sprite. 2nd mix of the night.
Cyrus all read eyes, skin and drunk.
Tequila+Calamansi. 3rd mix of the night.
June, Simba and Nieco's heart to heart talk.
Brutally frank talk about love, life and individuality.
4am. called it a day. Went back to Pakay's BF's house to sleep with Riz and Aqui.
10am. Woke up and brought Riz and Aqui to Intosan.
Lechon. Food. Food. Food.
Swimming. Enjoyed waterpark with Aqui.
Lame color adventure race since people's lazy switch turned on again.
Still had a bit of fun thanks to very respectful team mates.
Respectful in the sense that they gave in to the challenge of the game
because of my efforts in organizing it.
Disappointed but totally expected the outcome.
Charades. Boys VS Girls.
Tequila mix. Didn't drink since Aqui is around.
Drunk team mate.
Ended the day with running noise and no tan.
It would have been fun if they cooperated and participated in all the games I prepared.
Researched and prepared the set in order to encourage group dynamics.
It's been more than 3 weeks now. I cannot find my mojo. I can't juice out any creative idea in me. What's wrong? Is this a glitch? Is this something permanent? Good Lord, I hope not. Guess I just need a vacay. 'Ave been rumbling about it for awhile. Tick Tock. Octoberfest is going to start some time soon. Got to make the month a busy one. wOot! wOot!
Hope all the ones who got their hearts broken find it in them to wish those who broke it good wishes.
Martyr kaaug labas ba.
