12 years and counting.

Once upon a time, a teacher told us that after graduation, our so-called all-star gang will go on our separate ways and lead separate lives.

Estrogen overload!

Then college happened, work came along, boyfriends (and girlfriends) joined in, and after a decade we're still the silliest and loudest girls ever. Nothing changed, really.

Ang daming EKIS sa pic na 'to!
For history purposes lang naman so wag nyo ko awayin. Haha!

Ayan, hindi kasama ang mga lalaking karelasyon dito! LOL

We turned 12 this year, and we celebrated at Tetah's very cozy and sosyal Cavite home. Here's us... in our scruffy house clothes!

I just looove the fact that after all these years we still have each other's back. Amidst all the crazy decisions we've made and the struggles we've been through, we're still together--and that makes our friendship very REAL and very STRONG.

Thank you, my dear Kadamates, for being who you are and loving the weirdness in all of us. We've come a longgg way and there's no denying that our friendship will always be one of the best platonic love stories ever told.

Now eat your words, teacher! :D

travel factor olympics.

I am not sporty. Oh how I wish I am. I've always admired sporty people in general--athletes, varsity players, coaches, etc etc. For me, a 3-point buzz beater, a smacking smash, or a hardcore serve is just as thrilling as scoring a good find in mall-wide sales. But as I've said, I was never good at any sport. I hate P.E. classes because I'm just so bad at it (except for the dance classes, which, I believe is not a hardcore sport, anyway). I never had the guts to join any sports team because I know they'll hate me after the game just because I suck. Haha! Yes, I am that pathetic. Really.

So when Travel Factor, the coolest travel group in the world, invited us for their very first TF Olympics, I was so excited! Finally, a sports fest made for all ages and suckers were very much welcome to join! LOL. I signed up for the relay and frisbee games, knowing that with my built and all, I can at least run fast!

I'm the 4th person from left. Just look for the bangs, baby.

And now I shall post some of the event's highlights:

I caught a disc and we scored! We lost though. LOL

After the field games, it was badminton time at Sheridan! Of course, I didn't join. I just cheered, cheered and cheered for our team. :D

The last people standing.

Our team ended up winning 2nd place, overall. We definitely did some justice to our yabang posters! Hahaha!

my rapunzel moment.

I am not a morning person. I usually sleep late and today was no exception. I slept around 5am and my Mom went up to my room around 8am to tell me this:

Mom: Are you going out today?
Me: (eyes still closed) Yes
Mom: Anong oras?

Me: Hapon.

Mom: Ano ngang oras?

Me: Mga 2 siguro.
Mom: Gumising ka na kasi babarnisan yung buong hagdan hindi ka na makakababa mamaya. Tas dalhin mo na lahat ng kelangan mo pagbaba kasi hindi ka na makakaakyat.

Me: WHAT? Eh I need to work in my room, I have a deadline today!

Mom: Can you just please cooperate? Tomorrow's the last day of renovations so there's no other time to get the stairs varnished.

Me: Fine. Padala nalang ng pagkain dito bago start yung varnish. Won't go out nalang. Will stay here hanggang matuyo yung hagdan.

Mom: OK.

I thought it was all a dream. By 11am, I woke up...hungry. Got up, went out the door and saw this:

The newly-varnished stairs

UH-OH. So my mom was really serious. My room's on the third floor so its not like I can jump somewhere to get downstairs. I looked around to see if they left food for me. But of course, my Mom forgot that very important detail. Aaaaack.

So I called for Yaya.

Me: Yayaaaaaaa!

Me: Pano ako bababa? Nagugutom na ko!

She went up to the second floor. Apparently, there were steps from the first floor going to the second floor na wala pang varnish. But the all the steps from second going to the third floor were covered up already. So we were talking na parang I was Rapunzel asking for help. LOL

Yaya: Ay patay kang bata ka. Dumaan ka sa gilid! Parang ganito *demo demo*

This is the "gilid" she's talking about.

Me: *tried it* Di ko kaya! Malalaglag ako!
Yaya: Eh wala kang choice!

Me: Ay nako anong oras ba matutuyo yung hagdan?
Yaya: Mga 4pm pa.

Me: What? So 4pm pa ko makakakain?

Yaya: Eh ikaw kasi ginigising ka kanina di ka gumising.

Ok fiine. My fault, again. So that's it. I'm dead. I'm gonna starve for hours just because of the stupid varnish. So I went back in my room to search my bags for food. I usually bring crackers every time I go out so I might get lucky. And voila, I saw this:

Thank God for OK!'s Kristine and her Meiji pasalubong!
These are really good stuff, I must say.

So I munched on the chocolates like there's no tomorrow. But after 5 sticks my stomach was still crumbling and worst of all, I got thirsty.

UH-OH. So what now? I told myself "mind over matter, mind over matter... I am not thirsty, I am not hungry..." LOL. Para akong baliw.

Then all of a sudden, Yaya shouted from the second floor.

Me: Baket?!!

Yaya: Kunin mo bilis!

Yaya + sungkit + basket + my food!

Ain't my Yaya so brainy and sweet? She just can't stand the fact that I'll starve for hours!

Meal for the day: rice + daing na bangus + luncheon meat + mango iced tea! :)

Thanks, Yaya! Another one for the books! LOL
