dead tired x.x

At the risk of sounding like a spoiled, pampered princess, I must say, I hate it when our maid goes home. Ever since I was a kid, we always had a maid, and maybe I got a teeny bit spoiled. But it doesn't mean I can't do household chores if I needed to. I just don't want to, coz that's just how lazy I am.

I slept around 5 AM today, coz Lex, Jojo, Kim, and Raymon were here until past 4 AM. Kim passed by around 6 last night, and we both went to Rob together. While we waited for Jojo and Lex, we bought movie tickets for White House, and went grocery shopping. Because who does movie marathons without junk foods, right? Movie starts at 7:15, and the line at the grocery was so long, and by the time Lex and Jojo got there, we were rushing to buy something to munch on while watching. We opted for popcorns and hotdogs, typical movie house foods, and rushed in. And then the movie started, so I tried to focus on my popcorn.

I'm not a fan of horror movies, even thrillers and suspense, because I am a scaredy-cat. Yes, I admit it, and I'm proud of it. I seldom watch horror flicks, and I rarely watch them on the big screen. Mostly I give in due to peer pressure, but I find ways to amuse myself while inside the cinema. Last time my friends dragged me to watch the latest The Grudge movie, I plugged in my earphone, cranked up the volume, and spent the whole movie reading Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol on eBook.

So it's a big step up for me to agree watching White House without any pressure at all. I don't really mind, as long as I got to eat and close my eyes - plus it gives me lotsa reasons to cuddle up to Bf during the movie. ♥

Anyway, the movie wasn't even that scary.. It has its moments , though. Especially when you hear that creey, overused music destined to make your heart race as you anticipate.. Something. But then, nothing happens, then your heart rate slows.. Then the music plays again. It's a vicious cycle. We found humor, though. I don't know if it was really funny, or it was just a defense mechanism to keep ourselves detached from all those talks about the Black Lady. Whatever it is, I was glad for it.

After the movie, we waited for Raymon. Lex had a few errands to run, then we went for a bite. After eating, we all came back to my place for some DVD marathon. We ended up watching Case 39, half of Letters to Juliet, and White Chicks.

They all left at half-past 4, and I fell asleep around 5 AM. I woke up exactly 12, in time for lunch, and I never got any rest after that.

First, I went to my cousin's to welcome my aunt home. Dichi and Koa came home in time for All Soul's Day, as they do every year. And since Dichi just came back from the States, I got new perfumes and lotions, plus a Nine West sling bag. I ♥ Nine West, and I ♥ sling bags, so it's perfect. Then, when I got back home, I had to help my Mom pack for her 5-day trip to Bacolod and Bohol. My Mom is not a light traveler, so I had to be the one to control her urges to pack everything. While helping Mom, I was doing the laundry. And around 6 Pm, I went with Mom to Duptours, where she took a van to Ormoc. Came home in time to close our store, and cook my Dad and me dinner. Fed my dogs, ate dinner, and after that, it was dishwashing time. Then I had to scrub our floor with Lysol, because my stupid dog peed on it, even though we've been trying to train him not to. Tomorrow, I have to open our store.. Do the laundry, and some ironing.

I've been doing our chores for almost a week now. I'm so freakin tired, I just wanna curl up in bed and sleep for a long time. Zzzzzzz..

playing uno was the highlight of our night =P

Went out the other night with friends. What was supposed to be just dinner turned out to be one of the best nights ever.

I was with Jen the whole afternoon, we went window shopping, then ordered take out and came back to my place. Jojo soon came around past 5, and we lay in bed, ate corn, and mostly just talked. Kim and Mon came by to pick us up around 7, then we went by to get Lex, and since Kim was craving for some streetside barbecue, we decided to eat at Manang's. We chatted about nonsense stuff while we waited for our food to be served, and then we ate with gusto.

After eating, we drove around without any plans on where to go, and we ended up visiting Raymon's pets. I wanted to see Kreus because I've been pegging him as a potential mate for my Rixia. We stayed for a while, because the rain won't let up. Jojo, Kim and I began quizzing Jenny about different Nursing topics to help her prepare for this coming Nursing Board.

Then we ended up going to Cafe Lucia.

And that's where the fun really began. We played Uno, and I don't know how it happened, but we all conspired against Lex. It's not really a matter of who wins, just as long as Lex loses. we all laughed so hard whenever me or Kim drops a Draw4 card, and he just mouths off foul words. We played for more than an hour, and the laughter just never stopped. Cafe Lucia closes at 12, but it waits until the last customer leaves, and around 12 past we decided to go since we were the only ones around.

We dropped Jenny home, then Jojo. And suddenly Lex remembered that Kim wanted to drink Tanduay Ice, so I texted Jojo to wait for us coz we're going back, then dropped by Karry to buy some chips and the drinks. We headed back for Jojo, picked him up, and went to McArthur. We drank TanIce, talked about serious stuff, goofed around, listened to waves crashing to the shore. We headed home around past 2 in the morning.

It was an amazing night, made even more amazing by great friends.

mother-daughter day, shopping, christmas trees..

What more could a girl ask for? =)

Last Sunday, my Mom and I went of for some mother-daughter time. We went to the mall with the hopes of cooling ourselves as it was so hot outside, and to find a gift for my latest inaanak-to-be, Baby Alleena, the little girl of my dear friend Shyn.

Anyway, after we finally decided what to give for Alleena's christening, my Mom and I wandered around. We ended up buying 3 shirts, 2 shorts and a pair of jeans from Whatever! for me. Then my Mom spotted this sale/buy-1-take-1-on-selected-items crap; she is a sucker for sales and discounts. Mom chose tons of shirts while I was at the next stall buying a bottle of cheap imitation of Clinique Happy Heart. It's one of my favorite scents, and the very expensive bottle I got from my cousin a few Christmases back was long gone. So I'm limited to buying imitations, not that I mind since I get to save money and they both smell the same, branded or not.

So while my attention was on perfumes, my Mom was picking out jeans for me, and she bought me 3 skinny jeans, something I don't really wear coz I think they make me look more skinny than I already am. But hey, I'll take whatever I can get. And one come with a lavander belt, and I love jeans that comes with a belt. I also picked one pair of Bermuda shorts while waiting for my Mom to finish.

My shorts =)

Skinny jeans, Bermuda shorts, and the cheap Happy Heart ^^

Statement tees from Whatever! ♥

We were both tired from walking around, but we both enjoyed the day. We also had a good laugh from it because just as we were to ride the Multicab home, my Mom's sandal broke and I had to run to the department store to buy her a pair of slippers. Poor Mom, people were staring at us. Doesn't matter though, it's not as if they know us. LOL

When we got home, I ate dinner fast then got started on decorating Christmas trees. I was supposed to put them up last month, but I couldn't find where we store them. We have four trees at out house. One at the sala, one at the kitchen/dining area, one at our pharmacy, and one at my room (because I like looking at it).

Christmas is fast approaching, and I am so effing excited! I get a smile whenever I go to stores or restaurants and hear them playing Christmas songs. Santa I'll be good, please send me lotsa presents =)

Say hello to our trees =)

I love my camera's Color Accent feature ♥
