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 Summer Bucketlist 2016

I am one final project away from my “summer!” WOOHOO! I put quotation marks because technically, summer season is almost over in the Philippines, which was April to May. But since the academic calendar shift, my vacation is now from June to July. I thought it would be nice to share with you some of the things I want to accomplish in this two-month break, and I want to see if I actually get these tasks done before my summer is over. So here we go!

(1) Work out. I feel like I say I’m going to do this every summer but it never actually happens HAHAHA. I really hope I can do this FOR REAL this time. But I’m not sure if I can do the healthy diet part LOL.

(2) Learn to drive. I hope I can turn this thing into a reality! Although to be honest, I’m kinda scared of driving in the Philippines. Plus my height is not exactly an advantage for this task LOL. But hey, if I do accomplish this, then I’d be one heck of a great driver. Because like my dad always says, “If you can drive in the Philippines, then you’re officially an expert driver.” haha!

(3) Finish my PS3 games. I absolutely love playing video games! But the thing is, I can’t play them during the school year because I would totally end up forgetting to do all my plates and assignments. But now that I have all the time in my hands, I really want to play more and finish all my unfinished games like Tomb Raider Underworld, The Walking Dead 2, and Barbie Puppy Rescue Adventure. YUP. BARBIE. I also want to start playing Life is Strange on the PS4 because I think it’s such a good game!

(4) Play Sims 4 more often. Like I said earlier, I want to play more of my video games! I literally did not play any Sims during the school year because trust me, it can be sooo time-consuming. But now I am so excited to get back at it!!! And maybe even buy some new expansion, game, and stuff packs. I guess finishing video games is my way of being “productive.” hahaha!

(5) Watch more movies. I love having movie nights especially during the summer, because I feel like each film will teach you something different every time and you get to expand your knowledge and wisdom. First on my list are Notting Hill and The Matrix Trilogy! Any more movie suggestions? 🙂

(6) Finish a book. It has been so long since I have finished a book, and to think that before college, I could read really thick books (the thickest I’ve read so far was City of Heavenly Fire), and now I can’t even do that anymore! Well, first on my list of books is Girl Online on Tour, which I have started to read like one or two months ago, and I just never had the chance to continue reading it. But after I’m done with that, do you have any great book suggestions for me? 🙂

(7) Buy a new phone. I have been saving all the money I got from my birthday last January to buy a new phone, and I am really eyeing the new iPhone SE. I hope I could get my hands on it real soon! huhu

(8) Blog more. This is pretty self-explanatory. lol.

(9) Vlog. I have always wanted to try vlogging or making YouTube videos, but I never really had the courage to speak in front of the camera. Hopefully, I can try to do it this summer so that I can conquer my fear and also, it would be something I can tick off my lifetime bucketlist.

(10) Go out of town with my best friends. My best friends and I have been wanting to go on a trip for about a year now, and we could never really find the right time to have one. But fingers crossed, this summer will finally be the moment where we get to go to Baler huhuhu. I also haven’t seen them in four months, and I just really miss them so much. 😦

(11) Spend more time with family and catch up with friends. It’s not everyday that you get to be on a two-month vacation, so I want to make as much memories as I can with my loved ones!

(12) HAVE FUN!

What’s on your summer bucketlist? 🙂
