Bonding with OJTs. And the food that comes with it.
New people, new friends to welcome to the working world. Haha.
I found my book! Yay! It’s been here in my room all along. I guess my dad left it here weeks ago when I told him I left it in the car.
It’s been three months without any progress in my books-to-read list. Which by the way includes:
These are just the books I’ve started reading. I have no plans of starting the Secret Shopper’s Revenge actually. It’s just that I lost my Dance with Dragons for a while back there.
I’m also reading (again) Catching Fire because of Liam Hemsworth’s recent visit here in the Philippines. I was picturing a very different look for Gale (Hemsworth’s character in the movie ‘Hunger Games’) before the movie came out. And now, I try to imagine LH both as Peeta and Gale. With Liam there, everything’s so much better.
It’s been months since my last book purchase. Well, an exception would be this one mini-book that I consider to be part of my Summit Books Modern Fiction collection – the third installment for ‘Vince’s Life’ because 1) it’s on sale 2) I lent my copy to a previous co-worker 3) it’s on sale.
I think that’s about all the non-sense update about my books list. Haha. I promised myself to read 30 books this year. And so far, I have finished z-e-r-o. Hopefully I can finish at least one before my birthday. Do you think I should count the to-read-again books too?
Day 6 is all about purrrety stuff. <3
We want to try the Dress Up Cafe everyone is talking about. We had the address, we know the stops, but we couldn’t find it. We walked for a very long time until we reached a quiet street and found this eye-catching shop.
This quaint shop seemed like it is owned by a secret society with a fetish for costumes, wedding dresses etc.
It’s easy to spot once you’ve seen 7Eleven. Right across it, Cafe Drama is located at the lower floor of a building, so you have to watch out for that pink sign.
Here is also a map from their website for your reference:
I wasn’t able to explore their website because it’s mainly in Korean. On a lighter note, the look of www.cafedrama.com represents their shop very well.
We got there early (I think they just opened?) because we were their second batch of customers. The first ones were a couple of young girls with their mom who got this outstanding outfit complete with hair dress and make up.
Based on what I remember (and please correct me if I am wrong), I think you have to order a few drinks before you can borrow (rent) their dresses/costumes. We got a few hot chocolate drinks. I love their mugs and the spoons are gorgeous. I have never seen anything like or similar to that before.
Kizia got the red outfit and I got the green one.
I was actually torn between getting this one and the warrior outfit. It’s a bit more expensive (at 35,000 won) than the one I chose (at 30,000 won) but you’ll look fierce in that one, don’t you think?
Aside from traditional Korean outfits,
there are also wedding dresses available in the shop. Believe me, we really had a hard time choosing from all of these.
We really had fun and to prove that, here are a few photos. Doing the serious poses at first:
and then some…
This is one of my favorites:
I’ll post more photos here soon. Okay, maybe one more:
So I got my new S100 last night. Weeee! I haven’t explored it yet because I’m too occupied with work (yet I still have time to blog about it) but I am so excited to use it!
I MIGHT post a review of it soon. One item crossed out in my resolution! Yay!
Made a short video of the first 20 minutes of 2012:
Music was blasting through our neighbors’ speakers (the house right in front of us was playing okay/great music – OMG, Party Rock Anthem etc., but the other, almost 3 houses away from us was playing some kind of a Christmas remix of Waka-waka, Beautiful life etc with Jingle bells, Auld Lang Syne – I can’t really understand why it has to be that way) and my siblings and I got carried away especially with the Party Rock Anthem. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see them dance clearly but you can still see their outlines. hehe. We ended up doing a demonstration of the weirdest, funniest and coolest dance moves we’ve seen during our gimiks and trips to Boracay, Korea and whatever we saw on Youtube.
HAVE A GREAT YEAR AHEAD EVERYONE!
Sorry, I just had to post this. I can’t resist!
(I do not own the video)
What I’m feeling right now.
I’ve been thinking about setting up a new blog. I have a blogspot before, which is mainly about a college girl’s rants and whatnots on life, love, peer pressure, majors, and.. well, you get the drill.
I also have a Tumblr account, which I super love to bits. But I really don’t feel like going ‘public’ about it. Think of it as my dirty, little secret. There I blog about almost everything – life, work, food, places, friends, etc. But I rarely update it with informative stuff. If I do, I only get to compose and publish the first part (out of seven-ish). Boohoo.
I feel that it’s about time to finally squeeze out all my creative juices and commit to updating one blog (so I can finally put a check mark on my TO DO list: create a very useful blog and update it regularly). It is my goal to keep this blog alive until I grow old and witness a dramatic change in the history of mankind (read: live in a different planet, or have awesome grandkids).
Thus, my misadventures. Why so? I think about my experiences as a series of
unfortunate events that I enjoy. For example:
Who would ignore food?
Who would say no to the chance to see the world?
Who wouldn’t enjoy an hour or two escape from reality?
Dude, please. I live to eat, I live to learn, I live to travel, I live to get eye bags, and I live to maximize everyone’s internet connection.
So please feel free to empathize, sympathize, and anything -thize. Join me as we crash the big party called life and live it to the fullest.
