Last Saturday, after the fashion show for the Subic Harbor Point Mall's Style Origin, the gang decided to just rest in Coffee Bean while waiting for dinner. As usual pag wala ng magawa (o tamad na kumilos), double dinner nalang! ;p

I miss my Subic Gang - Paul the buringot (hahaha, joke! Cute! Cute!) and my pretty sistah Tin! :)

The whole group had a soooobrang fun (and heavy, haha) Korean din-din at Bulgogi Brothers!

When we went out of the resto, wala na halos tao and sarado na the mall, haha! 
Thank you for the chill night ang good convos Nate, Don, Thysz, Paul, and Tin!

Sunday, I learned about Bloggers United 5 full-page feature in Chalk Magazine's July issue! Yey!

Zia Quizon wearing my clothes in ASAP! Thank you to her stylist Aisa Ipac!

Went out last Tuesday, and saw these funny vandals on my way to the Ayala Station:

Emo? Hahaha.

Watched Before Midnight (thanks Keigh!) with Papa D, Sarah, and Tracy! :) One of the best movies of the year! One of the best movies OF ALL TIME pa nga siguro! You have to watch it, ako baka ulitin ko! It's so hard to keep up with their conversations (ang dadaldal nila hahaha) - every banat, every line, parang gusto ko mag labas ng notebook and jot down the quotable quotes! In fact, baka isang buong script na nila ang maisulat ko kung nataong ginawa ko yun! ;D Hahaha.

Every character and every point nila, someone out there will breathe out a sigh (sabay bulong sa katabi "Can relate meee!") Haha! For me, I specifically LOVE their group conversation (something different from the first two films na silang 2 lang palagi naguusap! Cliquish!? Char!).

And then someone from their circle said something about (sorry can't quote sakto) a lot of people are busy spending their lives trying to find their soulmate, when we really just have to enjoy life ...and friends. (Awww!) *Sabay nudge kay Tracy sa sinehan*, hahahaha.

Catch Before Midnight in cinemas on 7-10-2013! :)

Bought new books again! :) A yoga book (with lots of pictures na very useful!), an old The Teen Vogue Hand Book on careers in fashion I remembered reading and enjoying sa isang coffee shop 4 or 5 years ago, and (for sentimental reasons, haha) an Eye Trix book I used to love back in grade school na kung saan pag tinitigan mo yung page long enough - may biglang mag popop-up na image nalang! ;D

Last Wednesday night's cool event with Caronia! Sobrang classic nail polish brand lang noh? I know marami nang umo-Orly or China Glaze (or The Face Shop!), but I remembered opting for Caronia pag tipid mode--good quality din naman and very afford pa! :) Enjoyed their event's nail care stations and cool music from Grace Note!

Thursdays with Ms. Ana. Hahaha! Starting kahapon, I'll be spending 1 and a half hours every Thursday as this a club moderator in an all-girls high school! What I wore for the first day:
Like our tryouts, activities planned for the "Styling Club" are a fair mix of all things fashion-related (from DIY fashion to high-end, from styling to fashion photog/writing, bazaar-ing, and even blogging!). Nakakaexcite sha! (Read my club moderator orientation in this post)

I left AC feeling super high and happy with my new "career". Spontaneously texted Tracy who was in Fort din, and yey so I met up with her. Had dinner in this new(?) place called Recovery Food, na ang target market daw ay yung mga may hangover! :D Niiiice. Hehehe. Had cheese sticks (the best! At P99 lang! :D), yummy salad, and calamansi juice!

Love you bebe! Tracy naman had the rich talangka rice na very sinful daw but very sarap! :D She came from her first Barre fitness session, and sobrang guilt trip lang yung kinain hahaha. Masaya naman!

Ended the night watching (for the first time) these Ramon Bautista vids on Youtube na sobrang laughtrip pala! ;D Tales from the Friend Zone, hehehe:

"Yang .0001% na pag asa na yan, otherwise known as malisya." HAHAHA!
Rememberrr... There is more to life than love! ;D

TGIF, guys! :)

Caronia Jingle Contest

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Pagdating sa throwback ng mga commercials na pumatok during my childhood, hindi mawawala ang Caronia ads.

Ang classic lang talaga ng Caronia jingle, lakas maka LSS ang Ka-Ro-Ni-Ya!!!

Nagkaron pa ng Vilma Santos version, very 80s! ;p

Nakakaloka lang yung hindi mo malaman if Ka-Ro-Ni-Ya ba o Ka-Row-Nya ang pag pronounce! ;p I think pag hindi pa-kanta Ka-Row-Nya dapat? Hehe.. Anyway, learned that they made a new jingle few years back, featuring Imago. It's also the same song that they played during last night's event at the RCBC Plaza Lounge.

Event's host:

Caronia's Ms. Olive Soria:

Went to RCBC with Sarah and Trace to find out more about Caronia Music Festival: The Sound of Color. This fun campaign is a search for the most talented local act who will use their own sound and artistry to create their own rendition of the new Caronia jingle. Sending of entries is from July 1 to September 30. Win P70k cash, open to music groups of 2-5 members, 18 years old and above. Kung ako sasali, may echoes of the old Caronia jingle! :D Tipong rap part yan, or pasabog na pang ending! Haha! 

Other than the usual event program, we were also greeted by these 3 different but equally cool FREE nail-care set-ups--shempre with the music genre themes! There's the Pop section:

Of course Krissyng-Krissy lang! :)

Cute Pop box with Caronia nail colors and products:

Sarah, shempre, headed to the Rock booth:

Cute spikes box souvenirs for the rock stars:

I picked the beautiful Alternative tambayan. Had my nails painted black.

Caronia is a quality nail polish brand na very affordable and proudly local. They have 72 shades to date! :)

Fringe box of Caronia goodies:

I have no dinner pictures, but super sarap! Pigged out with Tracy (other left early! :p) while listening to Grace Note band's great music. I love how they perform--they played the new Caronia Jingle, and F na F ko of course pag mga senti hits! ;) Hehehehe. Kahit own songs nila bet ko a--listen to Pwede Ako, pang mga martyrs (with rebulto level!?) like uhm like me? Hahahaha!

What is talented diba! Grace Note's vocalist Eunice also played the piano, violin, and then ended their set for the night ng hindi pinalagpas ang drums! ;p

BTW, the Caronia Jingle Contest will culminate with The Sound of Color Music Festival this November at the SM North EDSA's Sky Dome. Aside from the invited bands (to be announced), the event will also serve as the grand finals night (bongga, concert kagad!). Join the contest na! ;)
