(This is me trying to squeeze in a ‘blog entry’ - if I could even call it one - on a study night - which is pretty much every single night. In all seriousness though, this applies to me on a spiritual level.)
10:35 AM. | Missed posting for two days, but only because I was having one of the best days in my life. Boyfriend and I celebrated a year of being together last Saturday, and the whole day was filled with surprises from bright flowers to handmade sunflowers to picnics to horses to my dream dinner at a fine-dining restaurant. Everything was just perfect, and I couldn’t be any happier!
And then yesterday (Sunday), parents picked me and my sister up from Katipunan and we had dinner in Makati, where we stayed for the night. Still in the Makati condo right now, and I’m about to study in a bit after this entry. Still not done queuing entries, but at least I’m actually doing it. Haha.
The family will be watching Rurouni Kenshin later after lunch, too. Can’t wait to watch it again!
10:31 PM. | Making the "Gillian Gail" entry yesterday for my queues got me craving for sweets today — apparently, the boyfriend was craving for the same thing!
He came over this afternoon to work on his digests, since they currently don’t have internet at their place (que horror), and while he was working, I lazily slept the afternoon away - heh heh.
Got to work on a new assigned case tonight though before making this entry + finish a few more things in my checklist today. *pats self on the back*
And as I said, boyfriend and I were craving for sweets, and Gillian Gail satisfied our cravings as usual. They’re currently coming up with a lot of new offers, as they’re still starting out, and so far, we’re all satisfied!
On a very important Rurouni Kenshin note - Densetsu no Saigo Hen is out, and I’ve been spazzing about it the entire morning, and even showed it to the boyfriend right exactly when he got here, and he’s also so excited, but probably nowhere excited as I am because that freaking trailer is the trailer of all freaking trailers and ugh, I’m so agitated!
What a long sentence. Heh.
Will get back on working with post processing photos and that poster due next week. Good evening!
Sweet again, and again. | This whole ‘hanging out at cute, colorful and fancy dessert places' is now slowly becoming a monthly thing for me, apparently. I blogged about visiting this kind of places last June and July too! Not that I really mind; I love sweets!
And this one definitely tops the record for now. It’s the first time I’ve heard of, and been to, a dessert buffet restaurant. Yes, you read it right, it’s dessert. And buffet. All kinds and types of sweets served right before you, waiting for you to devour them all one by one.
This is Gillian Gail, a newly opened restaurant right in Katipunan, just a floor above my friend’s dorm! It’s so accessible we can’t help but eat at this place every now and then. I’ve actually been there two more times since the first time my friend brought us there! The photos are from the first time I tried out the place. Right now, they’re also already offering dimsum on the side. Could you actually believe that? Main course is dessert, and then dimsum as side dishes? Aaaah.
The guys there pretty much know us already, especially my two friends since they go there more frequently. You can get a dessert buffet for P299 only, and P399 if you want Ala Carte Meal Combo too. Also, some of their sweets (like crepe, macarons, creme brulee) you have to order on a small paper they’ll be handing out, since they can’t serve it with the rest of the sweets, and they make it by orders.
My friends and I usually go to the place after class on a Monday to get a good start of the week, or on a Thursday to end the class week with sweets. Actually, enough with the excuses - we just really want to eat there! Helps us especially when we’re stressed with law school!
Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika Hen | August 20, 2014.
Before I start off, I just want to say I am trying so hard to sound coherent and human in all my Rurouni Kenshin blog entries, because I can’t really tell if all the ‘rabid fangirl typing in all caps and trying to express her feels with incorrigible words and phrases’ will ever work for my non-Ruroken fans followers. But then again this is my blog, and this is tumblr for heaven’s sake - we all know the only people from tumblr understand each other so… anyway, I’m just putting this out here as a small warning. Heh heh.
Now that that’s out of the way, to all my fellow Rurouni Kenshin fans —
Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika Hen finally opened yesterday in the Philippines - and broke two records with P7.3M for its opening! - and I got to watch it with my boyfriend and our blockmate last night!
We had class ‘till four in the afternoon, and our tickets were for the Glorietta cinema, so we had to take a cab to get there. I forgot to bring my camera with me (!) but at least iphone was handy enough to take good enough quality shots, since I didn’t even expect the Rurouni Kenshin exhibit to be exactly at the cinema!
I missed the exhibit last time we were there for the public press conference with the cast and wasn’t able to take photos. I was pretty sad about that too, but the heavens probably loves me, since they got the exhibit there yesterday too, and it was just so beautiful. I was already so hyped since the night before, and seeing these costumes and screenshots and huge promos seriously hyped me up even more to such high levels! I was squealing and fangirling all over the place my bf and friend just kept on laughing. We weren’t even in the cinema that time!
After grabbing quick dinner, we lined up for the theatre - and there was a pretty long line too, Rurouni Kenshin is amazing! - and got to our seats. (I’m not really the biggest fan of Glorietta cinemas though, and I already made a mental note to avoid their cinema next time because the seats weren’t just elevated enough it got kinda annoying during the movie.)
The movie started in about fifteen minutes, and then everything is just perfect, and I’m not even gonna blog about the whole movie here because I’m sure a lot of people haven’t seen it yet and wouldn’t want to be spoiled. But gosh, IT WAS JUST SO PERFECT. Of course there were inconsistencies with the anime and manga - I’m not even complaining about that, it was expected - but seriously, I was trying so hard to contain myself and even with all the efforts, I still end up gasping and squealing and even tearing up at some parts, and I practically squeezed my boyfriend’s poor hand trying to stop myself from fangirling like crazy.
Because, it was that great! No doubt, I’m going to watch it again and again, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy when merch’s out. But even more, I can’t wait for Densetsu no Saigo Hen for all the freaking right reasons! Ah, I’m so looking forward to that!
Here’s to Rurouni Kenshin!!!
P.S. Kenkao and Sanomeg are endgame. I swear, they should all just get married.
