Going On An Adventure

It's only half of 2011 and i feel like i've been blessed in a million ways
already. He's sooo amazing and i can't even begin to explain how much!

I'm about to go off on a great big adventure with my family and 
i know the reason why it's pushing through at all is because of Him 
and how His favorite thing is to make us happy and feel really, 
really loved. :)

Although i'm leaving a lot of work behind and 2 weeks may seem quite
short, i know that i will relish absolutely every single experience! 

"From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another."
-John 1:16

Adios, Au revoir and Ciao!

The Color Green

Today is my school's Centennial celebration and everyone's been buzzing about it. Just a few hours ago, everyone was en route to Taft Avenue to join the Street party, watch the shows, and get the chance to see old friends again. While I.... drove the other way around after work, and decided to stay home because I dare not brave the traffic & the impossible parking all the way in Manila.

Instead, I celebrated in front of my computer, looking and laughing at all my memories of truly, some of the greatest years of my life so far. :) 

First day high! Yvina & I stuck like glue thinking we were the only ones who knew each other. And yes, those were the Ice Monster days! :)) Mcdonalds however, will always look the same.

Waaaay before Kish became a basketball star, he was just our incredibly tall classmate who helped professors pull down the white screen or erase the board.

Yellow Pads, Ledgers, and tons of Accounting papers. 

Waiting for professors to arrive in between classes. Really miss these hallways!

Block pictures :))
Block school trips :))
Commuting adventures!

Watching the games
Visiting other schools
"College Parties"...and thinking we were so cool for attending them :))

First performances, great victories, the chance to represent the school .... 
and a gazillion more after that (but more of this in another story ;D)
Random silly days at the "conserve", the field, SJ walk, or Animo Canteen...

Visits from my barkada (FINALLY)...
And really, i could go on and on and on. :) Wow, COLLEGE!
I've missed you so.

The color green has always, always been my favorite color
(my dresses, lunch boxes, lap top cases, bags, pens, etc. etc. have
always been in that hue) - now made even more so by the school
i represent. :) I'm pretty sure everyone's stories from the event will
be great and yes, i have missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime thing,
but surely i've enough awesome stories & experiences to tell
about all of those great years at school to make up for it! 
Animo La Salle! Happy 100 Years!!!

Things to come

Sharing with you some bits and pieces of a project that's almost in completion!

My mom has been baking since we were kids. She'd fatten us up with butter cakes, icing-licking from a wooden spoon, and tubs of brownies to take to school and share with friends. Although a lot of our relatives would buy from her and she would take on the occasional task of making a nice big wedding cake for some couples, she never really made any big effort to sell outside of our circle of relatives and friends. 

It took some convincing and a little push, but she's finally realized that it would really be a blessing to share her awesome (and i'm not just being biased here :P) home baked goods with everyone! I was happy to take on the task of being a pretend "food stylist" slash "food photographer" for the past 2 weekends, and i'm proud to say that it's coming along pretty well! (The only downside being the fact that you get fat from eating everything that you've finished shooting haha)

I'm beyond excited and really grateful to be able to get my creative juices flowing again. Praying we get that slot in a food market we've applied for! :)

Enjoy these tidbits!
