Finally, was able to watch Avatar after three days of planning. (first day - lui got stuck in traffic, 2nd day - tickets were sold out)

Anyway, I guess most of you know by now how amazing(!!!) the movie is! :) I guess you really have to watch it at IMAX or the 3D version to appreciate it. It was so damn cool! I loved it. Although the storyline was a bit cliche, I loved all the effects!!!

Oh, he is one very happy guy:

good morning...

Ano daw manong? hehe. I saw this sign on the cab that I rode going to the office this morning... Medyo sumakit ulo ko sa message! :)

I mean, there's nothing wrong with incorrect grammar now and then... But hello, if you are going to post something for your customers to see, you might as well MAKE SURE that the grammar and spelling is correct. Hehe... Two cents ko lang.

Side note: I am so glad I have my Canon S90 na. I can bring it with me everyday, everywhere and take snapshots for my blog.

not so good week

well, it was my birthday last week. and i did get to celebrate with my family so on that side, im pretty happy.

i was also able to submit my first audit report to my boss last week so that's done and now im a bit more "relaxed". nothing much to do at work until the new year comes.

now for the not sooo good vibes:

i had my weigh in yesterday. sadly, my weight didn't move down but up a bit :( 0.80 lbs to be precise. i guess it's my fault because i only went to the gym once last week :( this week has to be better!!! my PT made me pay for the .80lbs yesterday. i never worked out as hard as I did yesterday. yeesh. i was breathless. pathetic.

i had a great night last friday partying and celebrating my first ADB department christmas party. it was a blast. people went all out with their costumes and it was a totally relaxed and fun atmosphere!

but it got ruined when i had to wait for 2 and a half hours to get home... i waited for a cab near ADB but not one taxi stopped and to make matters worse, it was drizzling and i was carrying LOADS of stuff with me:( i didn't dare take the mrt because i was wearing my fairy dress (on hindsight, i should have changed clothes before i left the party! grrr). i started waiting at 10pm at ADB Megamall exit and ended up at Guadix exit by 11:30 (thought it will be easier to catch a cab there but not really). even manong guard helped me hail a cab but we're both unsuccessful. :( good thing my hubby came to the rescue. albeit a bit late... he was still there to pick me up at around 12:30am. sigh what a night.

i decided right there and then that I WILL LEARN HOW TO DRIVE ASAP. i don't want to be stuck somewhere again!

no more parties on a Friday until I learn how to drive! hmph.

THE birthday gift

lui gave me the BEST birthday gift ever! :)

background: i have always been conscious about my face - i used to have a lot of pimples and it took me countless products to finally find the products that work well for me. i am extra conscious about the dark eye circles and eyebags. i don't know where i got it but it has always bothered me - it just never goes away!

last month, i noticed that i was starting to get wrinkles around my eye area - laugh lines for some... and i started complaining to lui. he kept trying to appease me and say that i wasn't very evident but i was going on and on about it. hehe.

then one day, i asked lui to accompany me to Rustan's so that I can check the prices of La Mer here in Philippines. (I discovered La Mer before our wedding but only started using it months ago after hearing some great feedback from my Indo friend. it is a great product but price is a little too steep).

so i was there asking and the sales lady told me that i will be able to save some bucks if i buy the "collections". when i asked the price, i nearly fainted. but i wanted it. but it was expensive. ouch!

it was a surprise when lui suddenly told the sales lady that we were going to get it. i was like "we are?!" and he said that it was going to be my bday / xmas / anniv gift. (ganun cya kamahal!!!) i wassss sooo happy i could have kissed him right there and then! which i think i did hahaha...

anyway, here's my bday gift from my one and only pa-b:

kainan na! :)

first of all, thank you once again to those who greeted me yesterday (may it be in multiply, FB or friendsters). super thanks!

last night the "yee" family was here:

dinner buffet with sushi, sashimi and grill (like korean grill).

the food was so-so but the company was great! :)

did i eat much? of course!!! it was my birthday what do you expect?! hahaha...

my mrt experience

last friday, i went to megamall to catch the 6:15pm body jam class... honestly, i haven't been to the gym the whole week because i was anxious of going home late and frightened that i wont be able to get a cab home.

but i forcefully motivated (is there such a thing?) myself to hit the gym and told myself to worry about my ride home afterwards.

fast forward to 8pm - i tried to get a cab for almost 30 minutes but to no avail (as expected). sooooo i decided to brave the mrt going home. *gulp*

so here are some thoughts i had when i took the mrt home for the first time in more than 6 years:
1. where is that damn escalator? - have you been to the ortigas mrt? have you been up the stairs! the stairs hmm what can i say? i think saying that it was high is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!! i was puffing and fuming when i finally reached the top! buti na lang i was still wearing my rubber shoes. if not, my feet would have already cried "foul!".

2. what's with people and with moving to the end of the cabin? - i noticed that people congregated in the middle of the cabin near the door EVENTHOUGH THERE WERE ENOUGH SPACE TO FIT AT LEAST 5 PEOPLE IN THE FARTHER SIDE OF THE CABIN!!! getting into the cabin was really really a challenge! i basically had to push and shove people away just to get in! it doesnt help when a *chubby* girl has to go in with a HUGE gym bag!!!

3. what do you need the holders / handles for? - it was so packed inside the cabin that i barely moved from the same spot at all! i wasnt holding on to anything but it really didnt make a difference :) you can use other people's body as barricade hehe. thank God mababango ang pinoy di tulad sa singapore! thank God for that talaga! :D

in fairness, i arrived in magallenes station in 10-15mins time :) where my loving husband picked me up and took me on a jeepney ride back home. hahaha commuter tlaga kung commuter ang drama ko :D

all in all it was a very enlightening experience :p will i do it again? definitely... i still have 80 pesos on my mrt pass :)

CATS with Lea Salonga

I am a HUGE fan! I am her number 1 fan!!!

So you can just imagine the excitement I felt when I found out that she is going to perform the lead role in CATS here in MANILA!!! Good thing I didn't watch the play in Singapore. Good move hehe.

Tickets are now available at ticket world!

See you there :D

the biggest loser

hopefully will be me! :p

i had my first weigh-in at fitness first last saturday and i weighed an outstanding and shocking 139.6lbs! p*tang *na!!!! i think this is the heaviest i have been in my ENTIRE LIFE. i think even in high school i didn't weigh this much! huhuhu... and to think i already lost some of the weight that i gained from china! ahuhuhu...

anyway, as i have briefly mentioned in my previous blog, i am now trying to lose weight - seriously. my initial goal is to get my "wedding weight" which i think is the leanest and slimmest i have been.

i have joined fitness first manila and already got a personal trainer and a nutritionist to help me lose weight the right way... good thing is that personal trainer and nutritionist rates are way way cheaper here in manila than in singapore!

so what is my "diet plan"? basically i have to monitor my food intake - i have to jot down all the food that i eat everyday and my nutritionist (cathy) will check my list every sunday. we'll also have a weigh-in every sunday to see if i lost weight or if i *gulp* gained more weight.

my personal trainer (sherwin) is in charge of basically making sure that I will be crawling back to the locker room after every session! lol. we had two "free" sessions last weekend and my body hurt like hell for a few days after that! but actually, i gave sherwin the go signal to torture me lol all for the name of losing weight. :p i actually showed him one of our wedding pictures and he said "ma'am anong nangyari sayo". wahhh.. lol gusto atang masapak!

i also committed on hitting the gym at least 3 times a week (although cathy would prefer if i go EVERYDAY! my gulay. hehe) we'll see how this goes. hopefully by next week, i would have lost 3 lbs (cathy's goal not mine. haha.)

alright. ill keep you guys updated.

current weight: 139.6lbs
goal weight: 116lbs
lbs to go: 24lbs *omg*

wish me lucks!
