September Favorites 2016!

Hello everyone and Happy October! I have finally woken up now that September has ended! HAHA Get it?? Anyway, I finally got to upload a new video this week! I have mostly been MIA on social media because of all the deadlines, as in there’s always a test per day. I guess this is really what it means to be in third year college huhu. Ugh, enough with the rant, Moira.

Please watch my newest video and don’t forget to subscribe! Thank you so much!

June Favorites 2016

(1) Black Choker from Fudge Rock. When chokers first became a trend, I found them really weird because they remind me of like third grade students so I did not get at all why they became popular. But now, there are more choker designs that are coming out and I love how some of them even give off girly vibes. I don’t know, there’s just something about wearing chokers that makes me feel a little bit more confident..

(2) Uncharted. I FREAKING LOVE THE UNCHARTED SERIES! If you didn’t know, I love playing Tomb Raider because Lara Croft is just so badass yet intelligent at the same time. And Nathan Drake, from Uncharted, actually reminds me of a male version of Lara. What I love about this game is its plot twists and the characters’ sense of humor, especially Nate’s! Nate and Elena are also GOALS! I also love how the game’s motto is “SIC PARVIS MAGNA,” which means “greatness from small beginnings.” I don’t know, it’s just really a lovely and hopeful saying. My favorites from the Uncharted series would have to be the first and the fourth games. I really hope they make a fifth one with *spoiler alert* Nate and Elena’s daughter! I definitely recommend that you play Uncharted if you also love video games.

(3) Monopoly Deal. I love playing this card game with my cousins because it can get so intense sometimes, but don’t worry, wala namang napipikon. This is why I love playing card or board games. They can bring out your competitive side but never to a point that you would actually feel bad if you lost because the joy it brings and the quality time you spend with your family and friends is what matters at the end of the day.

(4) Party Flippo. This is an app which is exactly the same as Pinoy Henyo, a popular guessing game here in the Philippines. It’s like the Filipino version of Charades/Taboo. I also love playing this one with my cousins! And yes, even if we are quite old for games, we still enjoy them a lot and we are not ashamed. haha!

(5) Icon Pop Quiz. I decided to download this app once again because it’s been such a long time since I played it. This game is so addicting, but too bad they didn’t release a newer version. sigh

(6) Barefoot Contessa. I have no idea why I have been watching cooking shows on YouTube. Well, I have been watching Barefoot Contessa on TV when I was a kid. There’s just something about Ina that makes you feel so relaxed and her voice is absolutely soothing. She makes me want to start to learn how to cook, but let’s face it, I might never even learn how to cook. haha!

(7) Born for You. OHMYGOD!!! I have been addicted to this TV show ever since it started. I feel like I am going to fall in love with Sam and Kevin’s story and the way Kevin looks and talks to Sam makes my heart melt every freaking time!!! Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador have an undeniable chemistry, and I really hope that their loveteam will be as successful as the three main loveteams on ABS-CBN today. My favorite line from the show so far is “It’s not Japan. It’s you.” AAAAAHHHHHH KILIG SOBRAAA. Plus!! One thing I love about Born for You is the concept of the red string of fate, which is a belief in Japan that ever since you were born, there is already an invisible red string wrapped around your finger and it connects you to the person you were meant to spend your life with. It really makes people hopeful that someday, destiny will truly bring us to the person meant for us.

(8) English Only, Please. This is such a cute and funny movie! Derek Ramsay’s American accent makes me laugh and my favorite line from the movie would have to be “Ang taong di marunong magmahal sa sariling wika, lumaki sa ibang bansa!” HAHAHAHAHA dami kong tawa dun.

(9) Notting Hill. I finally got to watch this film and honestly, I was just waiting for Julia Roberts to say her famous line which is “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” What I also loved about this movie is that it’s very relaxing to watch and it made me miss the vibes that old movies give off. AND when When You Say Nothing At All played in the background, my heart just melted.

(10) How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The moment this movie started, I was immediately drawn to it. The lead characters were just so good-looking yet smart at the same time. I love the plot twists in the movie and their love story just makes me really kilig! haha!

(11) She’s the Man. Let me start by saying that Amanda Bynes looks so cute in this movie, especially when she tries so hard to act like a boy. haha! Even if this has been released years ago, it is still very timely when it comes to issues of today like sexism. It really showed that we should never underestimate the talents and skills of a person based only on their gender. I really enjoyed this movie, and I definitely think that you should watch this too!

(12) Maniwala Ka by Donnalyn Bartolome. I have no idea why I enjoy Donnalyn’s songs so much. But when I first heard this song, Maniwala Ka, it really felt like she was talking to me because I guess I’m at a point in my life where I don’t really feel confident and I have a pretty low self-esteem nowadays. Call it baduy or jologs or what, but when you listen to the lyrics, it really makes sense and the message of the song really stands out to me, which is why I like it.

My Sunday Currently | June 26, 2016

First of all, I know that it is already Monday here in the Philippines, but it is still Sunday in other countries so I am still allowed to write this blog post! HAHA palusot pa more. Anyway, I didn’t get the chance to post this last night because I was tired from walking around in the mall lol. But on the bright side, I finally bought a new phone! I got the rose gold version of the iPhone SE, and so far, I am loving it! Yay! ❀

Okay enough with the storytelling, here goes my first entry to the Sunday Currently:

CURRENTLY

READING Maine Mendoza’s latest Sunday Currently. It’s been a long time since she wrote something on her blog and I am happy to see that she posted something new just a few hours ago! And yes, I did get this blog topic idea from her. hehe.

WRITING this blog post duh! hahaha just kidding. Well, aside from that, nothing really. I’ll probably write on my “diary” later in the day though.

LISTENING to Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers! Since I got a new phone, I made sure that it had more storage size so that I can download more songs on Spotify, and this song was one of the new ones I saved on my playlist.

THINKING of making a video for YouTube real soon. I just need to say a few pep talks to myself so that I can actually get started. haha! WOO GO MOIRA YOU CAN DO THIS.

SMELLING my hair… I just took a shower so yeah haha.

WISHING to be one step closer to my most impossible dreams..

HOPING to make the most out of a month left of my vacation. I really am not looking forward to going back to school. Just thinking about it makes me want to cry and just sleep it all off. Wew.

WEARING a white shirt that says YOU DON’T EXPECT on the front and YOU MAKE A MOVE on the back. lol It’s a shirt I got when I was still in high school. And I’m also wearing some pink shorts that I have owned since I think I was still in elementary. Hindi na talaga ako tumangkad since then huhu sad life.

LOVING my new phone! AND OMG the ElNella love team!!! They have such good chemistry and I think I have already watched all their performances and interviews online because they look so cute together.. Oops.

WANTING to lose my belly fat!!! I started working out religiously (naks) last week and I hope that good results will be on its way soon! *fingers tightly crossed*

NEEDING a case for my phone and a new swimsuit. Oh, add self-confidence and belief in myself in the list too.

FEELING grateful for all the blessings yet hopeful for more to come.

And here’s a little quote of the day to get us all inspired: “Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way.”

I hope you have a great week ahead!
