High School Reunion at Papa John’s

High School Reunion at Papa John's

High School Reunion at Papa John's

We had a high school reunion at Papa John’s located at BF Homes in Parañaque on December 30. It was so nice to see my high school friends again. Though I really miss those who weren’t able to attend. :’-( The last time we had a well-attended party was probably 2 years ago at Gerry’s Grill, Blue Wave. This year, only around 20 came out of the 87 graduates of ParSci batch 2004.

I am actually very happy that we have a reunion every year. Nothing beats seeing and getting in touch again with those people whom you have spent probably the best 4 years of your life. Plus, it is really great to see them once more and know where they have been and what they are doing 7 years after high school graduation.

Another highlight  is the upcoming release of our yearbook next year. We got busy with updating contact information and editing stuff to be included in the yearbook. Kudos to the initiative of my dear batch mates!

After the party, Aprille, Angel, Rhalph, and I had some coffee at the nearby Starbucks while the others went to Iago’s Grill for late night drinks. At Starbucks, I was able to try their Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha which tastes good. Though my favorite is still Peppermint Mocha. 🙂

Here are some images from our get-together. Enjoy!

I wanted to order the Cream of Mushroom but it was not available. So I ordered this instead. 🙂 It was actually better than I expected. It was really creamy and tasty!

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

14-inch Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

According to Papa John’s, the best way to eat their pizza is to first take a bite of their pepper, then dip the crust in their butter garlic dip, then enjoy the pizza. I tried taking a very tiny bite of their pepper. Turns out, I am still allergic to it. I had rashes after that and even until now. 😦 It was a very small bite even smaller than a grain of rice. T_T Anyway, this pizza uses a creamy base. No tomato sauce on this. Though it has bacon, chicken, fresh tomatoes, and some more as part of the pizza toppings.

The 6-inch Cheese Sticks

The 6-inch Cheese Sticks

We tried their Cheese Sticks for appetizer. It is just like a regular pizza dough topped with mozzarella cheese and it comes with pizza and garlic dips. I only ate 1 slice, same with pizza. I was not feeling well kasi. Rhalph ate the rest and I think he liked it so much especially with the garlic dip. 🙂

ang aking pagtatapos…

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

hay.. gotta switch code.. hehe.. ayon.. so april na!! I don’t know what to feel this summer.. dapat ba akong matuwa o malungkot???

I’ve missed writing here. sa totoo lang… nakakbaliw.. at hindi pa ako marunong maglayout ng page ko.. so kabadingan ang mga kulay dito.. diba? pansin nyo? pink.. yellow..green blue.. hehe.. rainbow.. that’s my fave song anyway..

so dumaan ang march 31.. at sabi ko..magbblog ako.. pero anong nangyari? wala.. tinamad.. or should I say, nawalan ng time.. In the course of like 2 or more weeks.. ang dami nang nangyari sa aking buhay.. ano ano nga ba? siguro it would be useless to go in detail sa lahat ng mga events na nangyari.. so… ano ba?

ayon.. kwento ko na lang ang graduation.. nakakabaliw.. ayon.. nagising ako mga 8.. i remember.. then i jumped out of bed.. sa sobrang naisip ko na .. late na. para magsulat ng souvenirs.. that is, letters.. para sa mga kaibigan ko.. anyway.. i ended up writing letters na din. kahit short lang talga.. best wishes for graduation.. (Because of you.. playing right now) waah.. senti.. ayon so natapos din ako.. nagsusulat ako habang naliligo.. kumakain.. basta lang matapos ang mga sulat.. kaso, sa kasawiang palad.. hindi ko nasulatan lahat ng katropa ko.. anyway.. sana mapatawad nila ako.. ayon.. waah.. kasi ang call time daw 11:30 or 11 ata.. ng umaga.. wakekeke.. 😉 ayon.. so nagmamadali ako.. at recognition pa ng kapatid ko 1 pm.. sabay kami.. in short..

HINDI.. ganito kasi.. ang grad namin sa parsci ilang oras lang ahead sa grad ng national.. eh ilan ba naman sila.. 2000+ eh kami’y 87 lang.. o diba? laki ng diperensya.. kaya yon..).. so naglakad kami sa ilalim ng init ng araw papuntang skul.. that is, after we ate sa chowking.. i drank iced tea and ate some siomai habang nagsusulat ng letters..

so nasa skul na.. pagdating namin dun.. biglang dumami tao.. mga 20 persons na lang siguro ang kulang.. at malapit na magstrt ang grad march.. so ako’y nakipila na at.. my father bought corsage for me.. kasi halos lahat ay meron.. as usual.. gagaya.. para di OP.. so ayon.. nagmartsa na.. papasok ng gym.. ang init!! grabe.. at ayan ang mga camera.. nagfflash lahat.. ay..ewan.. hehe.. syempre.. im proud.. gagraduate na kO! ayon.. at andun ang inevitable person na talagang inintay pa namin.. paimportante talga si LOLA.. sino si LOLA? ang aming *some text missing* (principal).. hehe.. baka may makabasa nito eh.. i pull out pa ang aking ewan.. wakeke.. ayon.. ilang minuto din kaming nakatayo.. dahil iniintay namin sya.. paeps talga.. tapos.. dumating din sa wakas.. at ayon..palakpakan kahit nakasimangot na lahat.. ayon.. so napakatindi pa rin ng pagsikat ng araw.. at napakainit.. grabe.. that day.. bigla akong nagkaallergy.. nangangati ako sobra.. hindi ko makamot ang likod ko.. gano man sya kakati.. pano ko kakamutin?? graduation eh.. katapat ko ang LOLA.. so yon.. todo text na lang ako..hehe.. todo vibrate ang cell ko.. buti na lang nasilent ko.. kung hindi.. center of attention ako..tsktsk.. ayon..

A new day has come.. a boring one at that..

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

*tititititieeetttt… titititititeeeet!!* *bang* there goes the alarm clock!! AND IT IS 4:45 IN THE MORNING! what the heck..to early.. especially when you know that you must get some sleep and that there would be just an ordinary day ahead of you..

So I banged my head and decided to be late for school.. nObody cares anyway.. I really don’t wanna go to school today.. i know there’s nothing in store for me this day.. so I went back to bed and sleep ’til I wake up.. I woke up at 8:30.. I decided to go to school at 10.. but then.. I asked my classmates what they were doing in school.. NOTHING!! they were just gambling there.. (ahem.. we are breeding future gamblers in PARSCI!!!) hehe.. no offense to those guilty of being accused.. hehe.. Since they were doing nothing, I decided not to go to school anymore.. They told me that they would call me when somebody would ask for me..

I was happy eating breakfast.. I cooked noodles just for that. OH.. how I love noodles!!! noodles!! I could eat noodles for a whole year straight.. !!! Then.. ring ring.. *shut up just shut up shut up.. shut up just shut up shut up* there goes my cell phone.. someone’s calling.. its.. Vikka.. oh well.. its nikki.. sir Dids is asking for me.. coz i have those 2×2 pictures with me.. kaasar.. so i have to go to school.. i was literally running.. just to go there fast.. but i dont have any money.. damn! my parents aren’t home.. we met later just for money.. buckets of sweat was pouring out of me.. you could squeeze me and my sweat would fill buckets and buckets.. cool huh? noh.. that’s how hot it is here in the Philippines.. i hate it when summer comes.. you could change shirts everyhour.. think about laundry… anyway.. when i got to school… i took a bow.. here i am.. i met sir dids and did what i have to do..

we were then asked to go to our room.. to sing??? ano pa ba.. our PSHS hymn.. this is how it goes..

Praise to you alma mater
Stronghold of our talents
Here we learn to strive for right
Sealing fame for your glorious high

Peace we bring to the future
Service we impart
Hoping and believing
Success lives in our hearts

Praise to you alma mater
Seat of wisdom and learning
How we raise our voices high
Parañaque Science High

(repeat 2 and 3)

that’s it.. very cool.. but it really is good.. especially the tune.. no joke…

anyway.. after that.. the choice of graduation songs.. (thinks… this day is really boring…)

after school.. my berks and I went to sm sucat.. san pa ba? anyway.. when we got there.. there were only three of us.. nikki, che, and I.. we went straight to mcdo.. to eat lunch.. then.. i told then the kwento about the bente thing… haha.. such fun.. gossip lang.. then.. we ate.. then up to check out what time the movie would start.. 50 First Dates.. 2:35.. we still got 45 minutes then to look around and wait for our kaberks..

(fast forward to the movie)

am not gonna continue with my boring day.. im just gonna tell you about the movie i saw.. 50 first dates

50 First Dates

am not gonna tell you the summary.. just what i think about it..

the movie was great!! it really is… at first i thought it would be just like any other romance comedy movies.. it is.. but it has a twist.. imagine a girl.. with a short-term memory loss.. everyday of her life, she thinks it was the day after the accident.. she wears the same thing, eats the same thing at the same place at the same time.. whatever happens on that day.. she would not remember.. adam sandler was such a nice guy to love that girl.. if i was a guy… maybe i wouldn’t have done that.. what would i do if a person doesn’t really know who i am.. everyday.. i would keep on winning her heart.. everyday of my life.. that was hard.. but adam did it!! i was really touched.. *as if i was drew there* i forgot their names..it was like lucy and harry or henry i think.. whatever.. such a nice movie.. awww.. and it was funny!!! there are goofy parts there.. romantic ones too.. some would make you cry.. almost.. but your tears would be held back by laughter.. hahahaa… so much for that..

I think i wanna watch THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST… but isn’t it gory?? full of gore?? i think it’s a good movie.. but when i saw the trailer.. all i saw was blood.. *think about that.. i wanna be a nurse..* lol.. but yeah… kinda freaky.. but that’s jesus christ.. i would probablywatch it anyway..

but the movie i really am waiting for is.. HARRY POTTER THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN.. i wanna see daniel radcliffe.. he is so cute.. certified BG.. hehe.. i also wanna have the 5 books of harry potter.. but it costs.. 4,950 bucks!! what the heck.. how would i get that much money??!!! damn!!!!!!!!

Barkada… VISEC DAT MR JACKS T

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

oh my gosh!!! graduation will be on the 31st.. I could not believe this.. oh my gosh! My barkada and I would soon be apart.. Oh how I wish I could prolong time.. It would be so difficult to part ways.. The fact that we would all be going in different colleges makes me feel hopeless.. I just hope that we would still be friends.. Even though we would have our own circle in college… Graduation is fast approaching.. Our days our numbered.. I wanna share my pics.. the mementos of our happy moments together here… I want everyone to see the VISEC DAT MR JACKS T… Presenting.. Vikka, Nikki, Samantha, Edlin, Cherry Anne, Kristine Mae, Aprille, Tin, Monique, Mario, Ida, Theresa B, Liezle, Theresa E, Veah, and Jenny.. Some of them are not present in the pictures.. we haven’t had a whole picture as a group.. awww.. sad…. I just hope that we would soon have it.. Cheers!

NSAT day… (not a big deal!!)

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

haay.. life.. today..i started the day by getting up a minute earlier.. (i usually wake up at 4:45 am).. i woke up earlier to prepare my pencils and other things that i would bring to school..including the Cover, the title page, “paghahandog“, the list of our names.. blah blah blah. then i started taking a bath.. then dress up for school..then eat breakfast.. then went outside and went straight to aprille’s house.. hehe.. i ride with them to school every day… rather.. every school day..

NSAT was not a big deal for us..WHy? Don’t know. We haven’t even studied for it..unlike what we did in the NEAT.. where we even reviewed and studied much… Our room.. for the L to Z girls of Parsci senior studes was at the 3rd floor.. room 321.. it was pretty easy to find.. the room was large enough for us.. there was no electric fan..and the sun was at its peak.. the heat was so intense.. Then the proctor came and gave us instruction.. their chairs were cool… wooden chairs nailed together… i bet it was very easy to arrange the chairs in their room.. haha.. the test was fairly easy.. hm..hm.. ahem.. the english was yeah.. easy.. the science was a bit confusing.. math was fairly okay.. haha… i just hope that we could raise the rank of our school.. oh well.. anyway.. 30 mins later.. the wind was breezing through the open window of the room.. it was windy… so that was why they don’t put electric fans there.. lol.. anyway.. the breeze was very cool.. and skirts were even threatening to praise Bernoulli.. lol.. good thing it kept itself down..

The happiest thing that happened to me this day was.. thanks to MAE!!! she lent me the book “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank.. I’ve been dying to read that book since 2nd year.. I have even memorized an excerpt of it.. here goes…

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

“It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals. It seems so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe in spite of everything that people are truly good at heart. It’s utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death. I see the world slowly transform into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that one day will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better. that this cruelty shall end-that peace and tranquility shall return once more..” The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Nice, huh?? it’s very inspiring.. Even though I had just started reading it.. I sense that it is a very good book..I ought to get a copy later on.. oh well.. anyway.. i wanna advertise.. “Who would be so kind as to give me books, good ones, even second hands.. I just want books.. I would really appreciate it.. hehe.. Thanks to my fairy godperson!!!”

You see, I am a bookworm.. i have started reading since i was about 3 years old. Reading is my ultimate hobby, pasttime, and life! Books are my life.. wow.. a book would have been proud of me. hehe.. for all these commendation..

Sometimes, I wish that if only I am rich.. I could have built my own library walled with books of all sorts.. Diba?? It would be fun.. just looking at it would really make me happy.. Kahit na I cannot read all of them lest i would have an eternal life.. diba? so eto.. hope you could give me books.. sponsors please.. hehehe..
