4:25 PM. | Took an afternoon nap which lasted longer than I actually wanted it to, so here I am only starting with my plans for today at four in the afternoon. I don’t really have anything planned today, but it still feels a bit weird (and annoying) for me not to have done anything else but sleep.
Had a random fun shoot today after church by the redesigned garden in our front yard, and will be post processing them right after posting this. The garden looks amazing - pebbles and not much grass anymore - and the unplanned table and chair at the middle of the garden takes the cake. It’s now some sort of reminder of the old mango tree covering the house for years.
Good day!

9:38 PM. | Spent the afternoon celebrating the 4th birthday of my cousin’s daughter Viene over at McDonald’s for a kid’s party. Still pretty cute, seeing little kids playing parlor games and trying to win prizes. Cutest of them all is especially Viene, of course. With a sparkly fairy dress and a flower band on her hair, who else would stand out most?
She got herself a Frozen themed cake too, as it’s her favorite animated film - she calls herself Elsa, actually! Took photos of the celebration, and got a few laughs with the kids running and hiding from the mascot. It rained later during the day though, but it didn’t spoil the fun.
Got home just in time for The Voice Kids, and somehow, that show has become a family bonding with all of us in one room on a rainy night shouting and supporting our bets, and actually voting through text, haha! It’s the Grand Finals, and we’re hoping to catch it live tomorrow at Resorts World, though I’m not really sure about that now…
July’s ending in less than a week… counting the days till I’m back at the daily grind…
Good evening!

Game time at Ludo | July 25, 2014

This was yet again one of those instances that prove spontaneous is better than planned. 

My friends and I have been planning to meet up again to try this new themed restaurant along Tomas Morato. Dudes (yes, that’s his name) had been trying to get us all together for a night of fun and board games while munching on Japanese food over at Ludo Cafe. Unfortunately, we all had conflicting schedules so we didn’t really push through with it.

Until last Friday night. 

Apparently, Urie was back in Manila and she texted me Friday morning if I was up for Ludo night with the guys. We all decided to meet up that afternoon at Katipunan, and it turned out al of us were available, so yay!

Ludo: Boardgame Bar and Cafe can be found in Scout Fuentebella Street Corner Scout Torillo, near Tomas Morato. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the entrance, but that night they were celebrating Batman Day, so they had a huge Batman logo right on the door, and bats made from cartolina pasted on walls, as my next photos show. Designs from the game Dix-it were also pasted on the walls. 

image

The place was big enough, and had lots of tables, so it can accommodate quite a number customers, though I’m not really sure how long the customers stay considering we ourselves stayed there for more than two hours.

Tall shelves of board games, all over the place!

image

Yay, food!

image

And to celebrate Batman day, this guy behind boyfriend - I’m guessing he’s the owner - as Bane! (Boyfriend with laughing chinky eyes, so cute! Heh heh.)

First game we played was Avalon, which is pretty much like Werewolf, only for this one, we have quests + good knights + evil knights + other special characters. 

This was a fun game! We had three to four runs, I think, and I was one of the bad guys in two of those. Also, the bad guys won in every game. So much for good triumphing over evil.

And then, there’s Cards Against Humanity! I’ve been wanting to try out this game for a while now (I know, it’s a game for horrible people, judge me) and it turned out to be really fun and funny! Dirty game, too.

image

Then, there’s the classic Taboo for our last game, with boys against girls on the first run, and then couples after. The last time I played this game was in undergrad, and I almost forgot the basic rules too, haha. The boys won though. :/

Group photo!

Hopeful for more meetings like this again, before we’re back to our daily grind next month!

July 23, 2014 in Photos | After days of trying to convince the boyfriend to watch this new local teen flick - She’s Dating the Gangster - he finally gave in, heh. Admittedly, I am a huge fan of the love team, so no regrets, the movie was moving, and the audience was very animated too, it’s actually quite amusing.
Was craving for Japanese food, as always, and boyfriend was in the mood for it too, so we went to the nearest Japanese restaurant to get our share of sashimi, rolls, and noodles. Delicious, delicious.
Hopefully we get to catch more of simple joys like this before August!

5:06 PM. | Staying at Mandarin Hotel for tonight, for no reason. Even I don’t completely understand why I’m here anyway. All I know is that the hotel’s closing soon, and my dad has a free overnight stay for reasons, so I’m here.
Missed two days of blogging, but those two days were quite something! Finally convinced the boyfriend to watch this local teen flick the other day, and then met up with the friends yesterday for a good run of games at a concept restaurant. Will queue and blog about this in a bit too.
For now, I still need to post process a few photos from yesterday. Tomorrow, we’re off to Bulacan to celebrate my cousin’s daughter’s birthday, and a few things here and there. (Also, I am still not over spazzing about the cast of Rurouni Kenshin making a red carpet premiere here in Manila!)

‘Rurouni Kenshin’ stars to attend ‘Kyoto Inferno’ premiere in Manila

IS THIS THE REAL LIFE BECAUSE OMYGADDDD LIKE SERIOUSLY

I CANNOT MISS THIS MY ENTIRE LIFE I CANNOT EVEN I JUST CAN’T

FINALLY OH MY FREAKING GAD I AM SPAZZING HERE PEOPLE

// EDIT: Well, now that I’ve finally calmed down a bit, I called the cinema and inquired about the whole red carpet premiere night.

Apparently, it’s invitational so tickets aren’t for sale, and that brings out a whole new gush of intense feelings because heaven knows I cannot miss this or I’ll regret this my entire life so I desperately need to find a way to get tickets somehow and see them and watch the movie and just be happy with my life — so I’m begging, please get me tickets! 

Well, with or without tickets, I’m going there anyway just to see them, but still. My body is ready.

Random Things as of 11:23 AM.

  • Rain with heavy strong winds woke me up this morning.
  • I guess I’ll be staying inside for today.
  • I haven’t been too productive with all this gaming, and I’m feeling pretty guilty about it somewhere inside me…
  • But RPG is just so addicting and I love games with a good storyline and I just can’t stop!
  • I’m probably not gonna play all day though, since I really do feel iffy not doing anything today aside from playing. 
  • I have yet to receive a reply comment from my father regarding the decision draft I made of his case. He’s probably busy with a lot more other things too. It actually makes me wonder if I’ll be experiencing the same thing when I get there.
  • For today, hopefully I get to review a few of my notes again, or maybe make another artwork; just something different. 
  • Good day!
