i took these shots from our grotto last week. i was just channeling my inner photographer, and i fumbled with my camera a little bit. i'm not really sure if the results were spectacular, but, these'll do. i wanted to make the rippling effect look more pronounced, to no avail.

i know a place

so, after a year of blogging, i finally had the balls, well, the chance anyway, the post music!!! Whoopee!!! um..ok..calming down. So, the song's called "Sun Hits the Sky" by Supergrass. I first heard this when they played Britain's new tourism ad. The video really went well with the song, and vice - versa. When I first heard it, I instantly fell in love with it! A really nice protest against...*shiver*..."Britney - pop". haha...enjoy. :)

drowning in fanfiction

Maybe you're probably tired of me ranting about how summer's sucking the life out of me. We were SUPPOSED to go on a vacation this Saturday, in other words, i was manila - bound. But, dad had to go away for God knows how long, but he promised (?), that when he'll come back, we would go. sheesh, the jihad had to start a few days before vaction time. my dad's in Jolo, right now, doing God knows what. i'm relatively pissed at how things managed to crumble like that. even if we'll push through in May, it's still now the same. i think i've already ranted, in an earlier post (like, a summer ago!!! haha), that come May, every day will feel like a Sunday going on Monday. you get the idea. come to think of it, i dislike mondays as much as i dislike May.

So, to make my days worthwhile (please...), i decided reread Half-Blood Prince... and i watched the HP movies again. God, i was so bored that i even considered watching Legally Blonde. hahaha. the horror!!!!!! So, right now, i've been immersing myself with loads and loads of
FANFICTION. So, right now, i'm currently obsessed with the Ginny - Tom Riddle Jr. matchup!!!'s strangely cute, in a twisted way. And i'm totally for the Hermione - Draco pairing as well.
but everyday's still a relatively dull day for me.

a new skin

i found myself a new template (3 actually), and i like it. ok, it like it, but i'm still looking for the template of my dreams. harhar. anyway, this one's in the gold tone department, and i'm looking forward to sprucing it up a little during the next few days. so, FINALLY!!!! HALEY's out!!!! but i kinda pity her though, but at least she's a good sport. Jennifer Lopez gave a beautiful performance of her new single (the spanish one). the emotion was there, there's no doubt about it. i guess what you lack in verbal comprehension you make up with the emotions you want to convey. but, why the hell is SANJAYA not in the BOTTOM THREE, and instead, CHRIS RICHARDSON was with Halyey and Phil????? Gahhhh....that insect annoys me so much!!!! America must be tone-deaf, seriously!!! i'll end it here, ANTM's in a few minutes. :)

'twas a caliente dia

it's becoming apparent that amidst a blogosphere of stagnant blogs and lazy webmasters, i'm as giddy as a British schoolboy!!! don't know why i said that. but anyway, to celebrate how blogs aren't objective playthings filled with random "smartsy - fartsy" stuff people usually put in friendster profiles to sound smart, another random post...

i tried my hand at making churros today! cue the "spanish harlems!". ok, i got that word from two of the performances during the not so via satellite feed of American Idol. ay caramba! i sound so muy caliente y bien espangol-ish!!! arriba!!! arriba!!! haha..pardon the thematic latin tone of this pretty much useless update on how i'm trying to do something new this summer...before i swim with the sharks that is.

next off, i just noticed how weird it's like living in a house with the matron being an AVON Franchise Manager, and two AVON Dealers (mom and aunt). A usual evening conversation gets a little.."straightforward". So, while i was gobbling up slivers of lechon for dinner, a cult member...sorry.."AVON Lady".. barges into the dining area asking, "Ti, taqui ya di mio order bra?".haha..ok, that's chavacano for "Madddeeeerrrr!!!! Where na my order bra???!!!!". ok, this is a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point, don't you? Maybe i'm used to those kinds of conversations, but since i'm cooped up in this cage for more than a month, it gets kind of, weird. just think, my family's never going to have a normal, boring lazy afternoon conversation without the talk of the latest Anew Age Defying cream, or the Sheila Bra size 34 - A. THE HORROR!!!!!

So, ladies and gents, the theme for today is everything chavacano/latin. *this is getting kinda pathetic...somebody slap me (ayiyiyiyiyiyiyiyi....*slap*)*
God bless the churros. :)

what to do when your bored?

What Your Hands Say About You

You are logical, analytical, and rational. You have good verbal skills.

Idealistic and dreamy, you tend toward the impractical. You have a knack for getting yourself in sticky situations.

Brainy and intelligent, you are intellectual to the point of being incomprehensible.

Your emotions tend to be relaxed and uncomplicated. You don't read too much into things.

take quizzes, naturally. *yawn*. hmm..yeah. it fits.

in other news....

i went to the eye doctor today....whaddaya call them? ophthalmologists!!! haha. so far, hindi man ata tumaas grado ng mata ko THAT much. trust me, vision's totally blurry as it is. and he said i could get contacts already! so we went to the doctor who fits glasses (optometrist!), but she wasn't there, so yung assistant lang niya yung nag-entertain sa amin. we just gave her the receipt and siya na daw bahala sabihin kay doc. oh, rewind back to the eye doctor! my mom and i went out of his clinic but she left the prescription on the receptionist's table. so i went back and got it. so i went in, and grabbed the nearest piece of paper i saw. but sa ibang tao pala yun!!! haha. bigla pa talaga yung pagkahila ko sa prescription. napahiya tuloy. haha. after that, my parents and i ate at Big Bite, this new burger joint sa may San Jose. masarap yung burgers!!! filling talaga. but it's pretty much obvious that it's loaded with carbs. *sob*.

~ and that, my friends, is a useless update on the life of a teenager living in a country where the streets are dirty but the politics are dirtier~
