New Year's Eve + Day

It has been 12 days since 2013 started,
but as usual, I am late at blogging about it

The New Year's Eve post:
I decided not to wear polka dots this year for some reason.
(At least yung camera strap ko may dots pa rin)
Lovely lovely socks c/o Sir Carlos

I was late for the New Year's Eve bingo game because
I was fighting myself about which shoes to wear.

Hemingway, when I DID get there,
I just randomly grabbed two cards and sat down with Tess and Daffy.

See that box on the left? It had a special gift from Ate inside it!

GRABE IT'S SO NICE DIBA. Ate gave me a Proud Race black veil

Ate says it's bad luck, but I kinda really want to get married in it
Uggggh if the married thing doesn't work out, I can just wear it to
my Dad's birthday - pwede na ring Halloween costume, diba?

That's Kuya Dennis being "strong" because he won

Tracy is not pleased.

This is Ana, Tess, and Daffy trying to attract good luck.
(I just want you guys to know, never dumating yung good luck.)

When bingo was over, we just got some poker chips and
played about what, three games?

Kuya Leo was pretending to be asleep and Christian
was trying to wake him up by opening his eyes

Then Christian decided to scare us by hiding under the table
then coming out with a funny face

... Tapos siya lang yung natatawa :-))

O and then Ate wanted photos in the bathroom mirror,
and it was really just supposed to be the two of us

But then Tracy appeared

And then Dad came in going, "What the hell are you all doing here?"

And then the gang appeared and we tried very hard to fit
(Tracy had to stand on the toilet)

Things to take note of:
1. Tess is wearing pants that look like a skirt
2. Tracy is wearing rainbow shiny shiny pants
3. Ana's socks are awesome
(Okay sige na nga I will add the back story -
So. I have always wanted tube socks na white with black and red lines at the end,
but I could never find plain ones. As in you go to Adidas and they have them, pero may logo.
Tapos you go to Vans and they have the socks too, pero may logo. Can someone tell
Muji to make tube socks with a stripe on it para makabili na ako?!
Well anyway - Carlos ALWAYS hears me talk about those socks,
and he finally found some plains ones while walking around in Hong Kong
and they're a bit too long and a bit too big for my feet but who cares
I finally have them in black and in red huhuhuhuhu)

If we are all together and it's around 10pm and we're all quiet,
it doesn't mean we're asleep. We're just on our phones or our laptops.
Aaaaand as usual. Si Ana ang maliit. (Tisha's cheating a bit though! She has heels)

Perks of being the shortest one include being able to do this in between two tall people

... Nainggit si Kuya Leo

... Nainggit din si Tracy + her rainbow shiny shiny pants

When the night was over and everyone was leaving, we heard Rick Astley
coming from our neighbor's unit. (Ate Diday and I proceeded to sing along to
"Never Gonna Give You Up," while Miko danced the Rickroll)

Happy New Year, Kuya Guard! (Inaantok na siya)

The New Year's day post:
Okay - so before we left for Hong Kong, there were many things we
weren't able to do as a gang. One thing was to watch Sosy Problems,
and the other one was to watch One More Try. Eh there wasn't anywhere
we had to be for New Year's Day, so we all agreed to spend the afternoon watching both

Para sa mga mahilig sa #ootd diyan, the outfit of the day was made of crosses!
Like... polkadots... but in cross form.......................

Tess and Daffy lying down on their usual spot
doing their usual thing (which is to talk about people I don't know)

I haven't posted about Korra in a while.
He is very fat now.

Okay fast forward to after lunch - Mom, Chame, Ate Diday, Tracy, Tess, Daffy and Ana
went to Greenbelt to watch One More Try. They stopped at Coffee Bean to buy drinks

This is them walking to the cinema

This was after the movie! (Chame and Ate Diday hated it - but I declare BEST MOVIE EVER)

That's my mom, and she likes purple.

Went to Muji and got a planner for myself.
Vain picture because there was a mirror (no further reasoning needed)

I saw the house and asked Daffy to take my photo because I wanted to be in the house

Tapos I saw Gelo whose blog is over here!

Break time before the next movie at the Riingen residence.
I love this evil dog so much. I cannot help it

That's Tracy pulling him by the collar so I could go out without
him following me because he likes to follow me and stand up on me
and lick me and I miss him right now just typing about it because
I know he's a wild creature but he's very nice to me and I love him. :-(

One outfit change later (ni Tracy), we were on our way to Eastwood for
Sosy Problems! I think I like to be the cross lady.....

Nanananana the movie was so bad but it had, like, a few super funny parts din,
pero it was so bad talaga -  as in anong plot yan please lang bakit siya sinama sa MMFF
pwedeng wag. =)) The trailer gave me so much hope but.... No. Grabe it sucked so much talaga

So here nalang, to the #DaffyFanClub, have his face! =))

Hong Kong: Day Five

Ayan - day five started very early.
I asked Tisha to wake me up at 8:30 no matter what,
so at 8:30 she pulled the sheets and I froze as she screamed,

Tisha's wake up tactics actually worked that day,
took me only five minutes of muni-muni before I got up and took a shower.

Left a bit past ten with Miko and Tracy.
One super big mistake we made was to not wear jackets.
We all assumed it wouldn't be cold outside and oooooh, were we wrong.

Lalo na 'tong si Trachea. She was wearing a super thin shirt

Enggry Ana is enggry.

We got off at the Tsim Sha Tsui stop and began walking.
I reminded Trachea to dance around as we walked to the N exit, where Nathan Road was.

I was taking a picture when I got attacked from behind!
Ngek - it was Carlos trying to surprise me! He was waiting for us at the exit pala! :-))
He was the only one who knew how to get around Nathan Road,
so he wanted to help Miko find the store with Anica's shoes again :-)

Asked him to take a photo at a very cool-looking alley!
Thank you, Carlos! :-)) I know you're used to me asking you for my picture anyway :-))

Again - don't take photos while crossing the street.
Baka masagasaan ka. (I love saying this HAHAHAHAbye)

Cute lola pushing a cart on the sidewalk.
I ran after her to take this :-)

First stop - Cotton On! (Naghahanap kami lahat ng jacket kasi namamatay na kami sa lamig)
Something funny - all the stores were closed while we walked around Nathan Road,
and we were about to cry because of the cold, but the moment we got to Cotton On, the doors opened

Took a picture of the locker because I want a locker in my room. Kasi. Wala lang.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. :"-)
(Okay sorry I was just very happy okay)
Spot Miko's McDonald's on the left!

In between the last photo and the next, we walked to the store where Anica's
shoes were, but it was still closed! At that time, we also realized that Tracy's
 jacket wasn't warm enough, so we walked all the way back to Cotton On to get
gloves for us naman. =))

TAPOS WE FOUND ERICA (As in our other friend who just got to Hong Kong
the night before) WHAT WERE THE CHANCES RIGHT it was so funny
we were freaking out in the middle of the store

So ayun. After freaking out with Erica, getting gloves for ourselves,
and Tracy buying another sweater, we decided to go to McDonald's
for lunch + to kill time until the stores opened

Since we are easily distracted, (I already told you this)
we ended passing by a bunch of other stores.

This was where I met the very cool girl from two posts ago!

I asked Tracy to take this while Miko looked at phones
in a gadget store that was open. It makes me very happy also hihihihi

Had McWings again!

AHAHAH I was wearing Tracy's jacket in this shot -
I was trying to be Eminem for lunch

We finished lunch a few minutes after 12:00,
which was exactly the time that most of the stores were going to open,
so we began walking back to the store na.

Ended up stopping at the end of a pedestrian lane because
the sun was hitting it and it was WARM

God probably felt that we were freezing and wanted to give us a few seconds of happiness

Miko, Tracy, and Carlos :-)

In between the last photo and the next,
I ended up buying shoes and several tops from a store,
tapos a hat and a new fox tail from another one!

When we ran out of things to do, we decided to take a cab to Ocean Terminal
so we could ride the ferry (something I really wanted to do) then take
the train to Central (Causeway Bay for Carlos because he was meeting his family there)

It was his first time to use a token to get to the ferry!
First times are fun to document, okay?

When we got inside, sakto, it was boarding time!
We ran to the boat.

Saw another lolo and took his photo before people started appearing
and ruining the photo

Took a seat on the front row

"Jack, I'm flying!"
Parang baliktad?

Hihi - Sorry if all the captions for the Ana and Carlos
photos are just kiligness! Kilig ako eh, bakit ba. :-j

Lucky shot again! I was taking a photo of a man who probably wanted
to leave the boat first - and he looked! :-)

After leaving the boat, I saw a really angry mom
running after a kid who was about to get lost
(At least nahabol!)

Walked through the overpass to get to the train station.
These are the jeje gloves I was talking about! Miko has a pair too!

Instead of getting on the red line, we got on the blue line so that
we could still get off on Admiralty and Carlos could go to Causeway Bay
without having to change trains anymore. (Nuks, nag-isip)

Last photo of the four of us before getting off on our stop.
(Deep inside I was all like "Huhuhuhu bye Carlos huhuhuhuhuhu")

By 2:15, we were back at the hotel. I finished packing the rest of the things that I
got, and went to the couch where Daffy and Mickey were to watch Inception.
(I love that movie but Ate hates it because she hates movies where you have to think)

Guys, ang dami nating maleta.

Last photos in our favorite place in the hotel (na napakalamig)





and Miko

Lol at Mickey's face

Went back inside to the seating area where
me and Miko ended up clapping our shoes together
to a Ramones song that he randomly sang.
Ay, I remember now! It was "I Wanna Be Sedated" :-))

The bus that was picking us up for the trip to the airport wasn't
getting there until 4:30, so we all headed upstairs to have something for merienda.
Yes, we brought all our hand carry with us! (Natatawa ako eh.)

This is Cafe Grey, the restaurant at the top of our hotel. :-)

Can you guess what my favorite color is?
Carlos thought it was yellow. What do you think? :-))

Tracy's left and right view from her place at the table.

This is an apple crumble. I ate seven of these.
They are so tiny and goooooood.

The bus has arrived!!!

Fast forward to the airport where Dad was being cute.
He was taking a panorama shot with his phone!

Ayaw ko.

Went to the Cathay Pacific lounge while Tisha and Daffy went to
the Disney store at the airport to find a Lotso stuffed toy for herself.
(She got inggit at the small Lotso I got from Carlos and she wanted her own :-)) )

This is the coolest elevator. Sana all-black din yung elevator here at PPT!

At the Cathay Pacific lounge, there is a place called The Noodle Bar,
 and Tracy introduced it to me that day. THEIR NOODLES ARE LOVELY.

I had three of these, and Tracy had four! (Hindi kami nagloloko)

Had a chocolate lollipop for dessert

Soon it was boarding time, and we had to get on an express train in the airport
to get to our gate. This is Dad and Ate Diday trying to keep my mom warm. :-))
(This train ride made me happy because I got to ride one last train before Manila!
I really love commuting in Hong Kong.)

A lot of walking later - we were boarding!
I was being a gago before getting on the plane.
I made Daffy take a picture of me pressing those buttons you see before entering a plane

Tisha was on my left

Daffy was across from me, Tracy's legs on his right

A documentary and two desserts later, we were in Manila!
Arrival time - 10:29

Ang dami pa rin naming bag.
