Starbucks 2014 Planner

"Another tradition most awaited this season - The Limited Edition 2014 Starbucks Philippines Planner. Collecting begins in 3 days. #starbuckschristmas" 
-Starbucks Philippines 
I really like the palette for 2014 and if you know me well, you'll definitely know which color I want. Haha! I'm still unsure whether to collect them stickers though, still thinking whether I should get my planner from Kinokuniya in Sydney. Oh well, first world problems. I really love my planners though...such an organizer-kind of person. ^_^

Sunny Sydney


Dress from Chica Booti, flats from ShoeBox, D&G coral sunglasses, Casio gold watch, bandana from Bondi Markets





Spent a beautiful day at Bondi Beach. We went to Bondi Markets which is like their version of "Tiangge." Saw a lot of cool stuff. After that, we went to Newtown which Mark calls the "hipster" part of Sydney. Think of it like Cubao X, only much much larger. We saw this amazing outlet store of Dangerfield and other 50s/vintage style of clothing and we were at awe. Prices were from $20-$50(!!!) After that, we had dinner at this Italian restaurant in Lane Cove called Via Napoli, run by the nicest, most efficient and happiest Italians in this part of the world. Via Napoli has been featured as one of the best Italian places in the area so if ever you're in Syd, you MUST try this place.
All in all, it was, as usual, a lovely day.

Forget LOVE by Sunny & Gabe and Mike G


Forget LOVE by Sunny & Gabe and Mike G

Hey you
Playing cymbals on your shoes
I would like to tell the news

Wanna live
Pick and choose

Sit you down and give you some time
Calm you down and make another right

Hey world
I've got to let you know
Take all
I've rhymed about before
Let go
The doubters let them fall
Yellow
You're scared, it ain't my fault
Drive slow


Yeah
The most decent thing you sayin', that you had me at a greeting
Not even worried, what's done in the dark will come to the light
Cause we move so fast, I hope we make it through tonight
See, these things cross my mind from time to time
Your presence is as melodic as making these words rhyme
I'm falling behind, hoping you will fall in line

Mark and I were about to go to the bank and gym at Military Rd.
Mark's car.
Cool wind.
Turned the radio on and bam!
This song literally just started playing.
It was a beautiful sunny morning in Sydney.
We kept quiet, listened and fell in love with the music.
This song represents my stay here in Sydney and also reminds me of the first time Mark and I met. 
It was a lovely day.

Quickie Updates!!!

Hello from Sydney!
Another requisite yet sincere apology for not being able to update this blog. Even though I'm in another continent, I'm still working my ass off late into the night. A lot has happened here in Oz. Not even on my third day and we already had a very shocking news that has changed my whole trip. I would be meeting a lot of new people in the next few weeks and would be catching up with some of our old friends here. Oh, and my mother is here in a separate hotel for official business. We're very happy about that as well.
Anyhoo, Mark and I are really enjoying our time together. Nothing like renewed flames burning and more peaceful days together...or we shall see when my period comes, he retorted slyly. 
Well, this has been the happiest and most peaceful I've been after our Japan trip. Sydney still feels like home, or maybe home is wherever he is. 
CHAR.

Here are the highlights:

1. Cebu TripYou can view my whole trip here: Letting It Go In Cebu 2013

3. B-Side 3rd Anniversary
Live Performances: Tropical Depression + Cosmic Love + Franco + Urbandub + Chicosci etc. Great way to start my September, old and new friends with the coolest bands. Special holler to my good friend, Mika!!! I missed you! 

4. Dad's New SUV

Dad surprised us with a brand new ride for the family. Love it!

5. Pretty Things 
First D&G sunglasses I bought with my own hard-earned money. Feels good. I also got a sweet gold Casio wrist watch for everyday use. 

6. New Seasons of my Fave TV Shows and New Anime
-Downton Abbey Season 4
-Boardwalk Empire Season 4
-The Big Bang Theory Season 7
-Modern Family Season 5

7. Road Trip with Ralen,Sarah and "S" :p
I love these girls! Gossip, rants, stories and laughter! And oh, movie and road trip dates with "S." Hahaha!


8. Dates with Friends
Bonding with these people uplifted my Sept. Thank you so much, Ralen, Sarah and Naj! Special thanks to Gail and Erwin for visiting me and treating me to dinner!!! I love you, guys! Also, thank you to all who have messaged me and invited me! Don't worry, I will meet everyone when I return. Babalik naman ako no! My friends are "clingy" and sweet, parang ako! CHOS! I will miss all of you too!

Special thanks to:
Tristan for always making me laugh and for taking ALL my dull moments away...alam mo na yan. 
Yami sa pagaalala at suporta and for the invite. Sorry naaaa!
Kadz for your awesome gift(!!!)
 Wanki for the dose of drama and honesty lol
 Sherwin for EVERYTHING.

9. Lily! 
How adorable is my little girl? She's almost a year old but still the size of a puppy!

10. Family Bonding
The one thing I really missed: bonding with my family over good movies like "On The Job" and "About Time." 



I don't know how to summarize my September. I'll let my "September Anthem" speak for me. "If I Ever Feel Better" by Phoenix sums up last month. I encourage you to listen to it. It has a very upbeat, almost disco tune. Reminds me of Daft Punk's latest tracks.

"If I Ever Feel Better"

They say an end can be a start
Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive
It's like a bad day that never ends
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that
There are things in my life I can't control

They say love ain't nothing but a sore
I don't even know what love is
Too many tears have had to fall
Don't you know I'm so tired of it all
I have known terror dizzy spells
Finding out the secrets words won't tell
Whatever it is it can't be named
There's a part of my world that's fading away

You know I don't want to be clever
To be brilliant or superior
True like ice, true like fire
Now I know that a breeze can blow me away
Now I know there's much more dignity
In defeat than in the brightest victory
I'm losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please...

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

Hang on to the good days
I can lean on my friends
They help me going through hard times
But I'm feeding the enemy
I'm in league with the foe
Blame me for what's happening
I can't try, I can't try, I can't try...

No one knows the hard times I went through
If happiness came I miss the call
The stormy days ain't over
I've tried and lost know I think that I pay the cost
Now I've watched all my castles fall
They were made of dust, after all
Someday all this mess will make me laugh
I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait...

It's like somebody took my place
I ain't even playing my own game
The rules have changed well I didn't know
There are things in my life I can't control
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that
There's a part of my life that will go away

Dark is the night, cold is the ground
In the circular solitude of my heart
As one who strives a hill to climb
I am sure I'll come through I don't know how
They say an end can be a start
Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive

I'm losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please...
------
To "S"
If I ever feel better 
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

October will be spent in a foreign country. Here comes the tide. hooooooboooyy!
