We had dinner at Yabu, a Katsu house, and the food was great! The prices aren't that cheap (at ~Php500) but the servings make the prices so worth it.
Anyway, we decided to drop by the Mariott booth to get anything gingerbread. We settled on a gingerbread house which costs Php990.
The boyfriend kept hitting me with the bag which resulted to the broken roof :( Oh well, still edible.
And of course, cannot forget my Royce~ How I missed my Royce~

More hauls from the tiangge. 3 pairs for Php100!
Sunday, December 18, 2011
While I wasn't able to find what I wanted, I saw a Bee Cheng Hiang booth selling those insanely addictive sausages from Singapore.
I couldn't resist, of course. So I got the following:
Outside the mall was a tiangge. Again, I couldn't resist looking at the earrings. I only visited one stall and bought the following for Php50 each:
Need to go to Megamall to find what I really set out to look for XD

First one was Saturday around 1AM. My mom was on her way home from a party and her car was a few meters away from our exit and BAM! Another car hits her from behind. No injuries for her and her driver; our Innova had a dented rear bumper but I was told that the culprit car got his front hood wrecked.
Then later that day, the airplane crashed. I was cooking when I heard a loud POP! Then sirens were blaring from everywhere and helicopters were flying all around.. It was actually the first time I saw a helicopter carrying those large round things that are full of water. It was already around 4PM when we decided to go to Makati. The police and the aides set up detours to avoid the area where the firetrucks were and to keep the people away from the places affected.
We were listening to an AM station news program where the anchors were interviewing Mayor Bernabe regarding the crash... The questions they asked just made me want to do a *headdesk* if I had a desk in the car...as I didn't, I had to content myself with so many *facepalms*
Some of the questions they asked were:
- Masasabi nyo ba na wala munang pasok ang mga bata? (Is it safe to say that classes will be suspended?) -- This was asked after the Mayor explicitly said that the school was burned because of the crash.
- So sira po ba ang mga gamit sa eskwelahan tulad ng mga lamesa at upuan? (So are the desks, chairs and other school materials destroyed?) -- Follow up question to the one above, right after the Mayor noted that the 3 floors of the school was destroyed.
- Eto po ang inaantay na tanong ng lahat: Ano po gagawin nyo sa mga nawalan ng bahay? (This is the question everyone's waiting for: What will happen to those affected by the fire?) -- Final question in which the Mayor has already said that those affected will be given temporary housing in gyms...a statement he gave at the start of the interview.
Gosh, don't ask these kinds of questions, please!
Anyway, 3rd accident that day was with my thumb. I sliced a part of it when I was making some olive tapenade. Blood was everywhere and I was literally dripping blood all over the floor. It's healing now, as I was able to close the wound and my thumb has magically re-bonded the sliced part onto itself again. This is how it looked like earlier, an hour after I removed the waterproof band-aid that got wet nonetheless:
Lastly, the boyfriend got into an accident yesterday. He was on his way to my house when the taxi he was riding wanted to feel how it was like to attack the cement wall separating SLEX from the service road.
So it did just that.
The boyfriend called me, told me he got into an accident and that he might've broken a rib or two. He didn't. So all's well for him though I can't say the same about the taxi.
That last set, the one with 6 pairs, I got for Php10 only. Yep, that cheap. The rest were 3 for Php100, so at Php33 a pair, it was still a steal. I super love the dice and the lighting bolts...yay violet!

So browsing online (my usual routine when buying earrings), I chanced upon a seller whose items are imported from Korea and they offer wholesale prices for resellers who will buy more than 6 items.
Given that what I want to purchase is for myself, I inquired if the wholesale prices are applicable to non-resellers...
And so they are!
I emailed the seller my order and the seller told me that since I reached a certain amount, shipping is free. Yay! I paid through bank deposit since doing this before 12nn that day will guarantee my items to be shipped the same day.
After confirming my deposit, the seller called to tell me that one of the items I ordered was broken and it was the last stock that she had. She asked me to choose another item, even if it were a few pesos more than what I paid for. So I chose and my items got shipped with an ETA of 2 days.
I got these yesterday...a day after the items were shipped!
Those are almost 20 pairs of earrings, 60% cheaper than what I would have paid for if I bought them at the mall!
I got a free Mickey hair band too:
I'm definitely gonna buy from her again~
Here are close-ups of each of the earrings:

Be sure to read even the comments! It's fun reading an exchange of ideas and opinions. Open comments are nice -- it makes me have a wider view of things not limited by the article author's own work.

Cook at home!
Oh. Well I guess it's good that figure collecting is becoming more mainstream now. I don't think it matters if the collectors have the stereotypical "otaku" look or the newer "sexier females" as you mentioned, as long as the passion is there. Then again, "passion for collecting" is another matter.

For my bread
Spend my time lost in space
Am I dead?
Let the river flow
Through my callused hands
And take me from my own
The eyes of the damned
It makes my stomach turn
And it tears my flesh from the bone
How we turn a dream to stone
And we all die young
Yeah we all die young
Tell me I know
I lived so afraid
And still we cry alone
With words left unsaid
Yeah it makes my stomach turn
And it tears my flesh from bone
How we turn a dream to stone
And we all die young

They're DIY cupcakes from a cake store in Glorietta 5. The name of the store eludes me right now, but it's the one beside the toy store. (Great memory for details, huh.) These cupcakes were made by my cousin (top) and sister (bottom). Thank god the pictures are blurry because they looked disgusting IRL :D

Yesterday, September 21, Glee the 3D Concert Movie opened locally. Naturally, since I've been egging the boyfriend to watch when I first heard they were showing it here, we went to Shangri-La to dazzle in Glee's artificial, cinema-induced limelight :D
Never mind that 3D hurts my eyes and I can't watch anything without my glasses on. Who cares if I had to wear my eyeglasses behind the 3D glasses? So what if my nose felt as if it was only taking in half the oxygen that it should because of the weight of 2 glasses pushing down on my nostril? I was gonna watch Glee and see Quinn Fabray <3
Fast forward to the end of the movie... I was quite... I dunno if it's the right term but, I was quite disappointed. I thought I was going to see a concert. Sure I've heard about them inserting "stories" into the movie, but all the while I thought that those "stories" were going to be more Glee drama.
However... they were stories of people whose lives were touched by Glee: an anti-social, a homosexual and a dwarf. I went there to see the Glee characters in a concert, not watch 3 strangers cry about how difficult their lives were before Glee. Le sigh~
Good thing is, the boyfriend's gonna start watching Glee too! Watching the Glee movie reminded us of the first time we watched a movie together: High School Musical 3. (Yes, that was me, but still!) In the same way that I suddenly found him with all the songs of HSM downloaded onto his phone, I think I'll be expecting Glee music blasting on the radio when we go out for a drive some time soon :D

I really, really, really want the stegosaurus costume for Bambam! Okay, I want to get the whole bunch of them for Bambam and get a raptor one for Piper.
The puppies would definitely destroy these though XD
