a skinny lover

(Monday, April 21, 2014) Me and my friends were searching for an adult rabbit for our Bio 157 Lab. During the store-hopping, we were sweating; and felt tired & hungry. So after our last stop, we decided to eat somewhere near. Plaza Alemania is just across the road so we went there. People’s first impression on the building might be classy but actually, it’s not. HAHA. They got some jeje interior design and decorations, and I hate their service. A staff (at the lobby ) and the supervisor (on the rooftop) insulted us just because we were just wearing casual attire (shirt+jeans) with backpacks on. We were getting our table when someone behind (turned out to be the supervisor) asked us “Mag-unsa mo?” like we were NOT THEIR CUSTOMERS. Instead of accommodation and courtesy, we felt like we got indirect criticism, discrimination and disrespect. Maybe I was carried away easily, but “hunger + that experience” wasn’t a good combo. It was the HRM student/trainee who apologized for what happened. Later, we calmed down ourselves and talked about other things while waiting for our order - Cheesy Chicken Chowder, Munich Pancit and Lechon Kawali.

here’s our faces, if you are wondering what we looked like.

Ate 
It started with a text, “Going na ‘ko *insert meeting place here*”, yet I was still at home, brushing my teeth. Once I read her message, I was already in a hurry. I then changed my clothes and walked as fast as I could to catch a Jeepney to downtown. Since I live in the uptown of the city, it took the Jeepney almost 20 minutes to reach our meeting place. 
"Aha naka?" (Where are you now?) I texted her, and when I got her reply, she was already at the meeting place. 
I reached the place 10 minutes before the said meeting time, yet she was there. It was 1:50 PM. I saw her, wearing a pink sweater, curled up to her arms. I smiled and said “Ate Ayah!”. I saw her sweet smile, and yet I envy her a bit due to her thin body. I then treated her with Caramel Milk Tea and I got a Choco Malt flavor for myself. 
It took us an hour and a half to talk. It was really amazing. Although, I also did most of the talking. Yet, she was also talkative herself. I finally met one of the people whom I’m going to call ‘Ate’ when I enter college. I mean we’re going to be in the same department, in the same building, and in the same school. I found her cute, and amazing. She was humble, and friendly. I was really glad that I met her at this day. 
When we got out, it started drizzling rain, she and her ‘Friend’ accompanied me to catch a Jeepney. As I saw a Jeepney approaching, I quickly hugged her and said our farewell. She was great. I mean, kulang lang ang oras sa pagsasama. Maybe soon, I’ll be able to talk to her more and get to know her better. 
Thanks for the time, Ate Ayah (askinnylover)Till next time. :) 

Maika!! Thanks for this! and thank you for the treat, chikka and time :) Sorry, I had to cut our chitchat :( Pero mubawi ko next time! ;) It was just great talking to you (first blogger I’ve met!!). You’re so friendly and sweet and cute. hahaha. I feel so “ate”.  See you in college! BTW, I checked out your blog :P

Grand Ball (which is like high school prom) is an annual event of the Department of Biological Sciences organized by Haynayan Society. This year’s theme was Old Hollywood Glam. As the organizers, we had problems during the event and now, I’m expecting some feedback from the students. haha. I don’t care. It’s already done.

Anyway, the program was a bit boring. I didn’t took a lot of pictures, here’s some! (Left) My childhood friends, Arianne and Diana, and the right photo, I’m with my sister who just graduated! 

One reason I didn’t enjoyed the event was.. some of my college friends weren’t there. Only my high school buddies (Pol and Jiereen) attended. We had a hard time choosing a table! >.< I just hope next year will be awesome! ;)

To the event preparation that made me busy for the past two weeks, MAHUMAN NA UNTA KA! I did the invitations and other minor tasks. (I even cut those 200+ invitations, phew!) It&#8217;s not easy to organize an event with my co-officers who are not so dedicated to their duties. I think we just don&#8217;t function well and there are a lot of flaws when we work or plan activities. haha. I just hope nothing major problem comes in our ways tomorrow.

Last semester was a bit challenging! Well, major subjects were quite demanding. and they made me busy that I could no longer update my blog or write on my diary. So, I wrapped some things that happened this semester. HAHA
1. SHORT FILM I directed and edited our short film since I was the reason why we disregard the former topic and change to a new one. Well, I’m maldita and I didn’t like the output of the first shoot, so I fought against them and proposed a new one - they all agreed when I said I will write, direct and edit the new film.
2. CASE STUDY We diagnosed a patient who died after inhaling carbon tetrachloride! It’s the last thing we did on our Pathology lecture.
3. FILM VIEWING Our very sweet teacher, Maam Faith invited us to their house to watch two films related to Forensics. It was our last meeting of Pathology laboratory. Film viewing with dinner was a great way to end a course! :))
4. MICROBIOLOGY LAB The laboratory that consumed our time. I like the subject but our laboratory activities were inconsistent which made me hate some aspect of the course. That yellowish agar plate is a MSA agar with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria :)
5. HISTOLOGY I like this course because I usually get to the top scorers list after our practical exam :)) I easily forget things but I just happy I can remember the histological sections of body parts. The picture shows a cross section of a kidney - you can see the glomerulus ;)
6. SHIRT DESIGN As an officer, I had some duties during the college week celebration. I made a not-so-good layout, but that design was chosen for the final printing.
7. HAGGARD FACE I was stressed, sleep-deprived and tired. But this sem was great with my friends/blockmates/food buddies!

HAPPINESS & PEOPLE series 001: Happiness from within!

For my first H&P series, I asked these beautiful/handsome people (with amazing personalities!) one thing that they love about their whole being, be it in the physical, intellectual or anything in between. And here’s what they’ve shared! 

Feel free to share one thing you love about yourself too! 

Aura of 320pixelsofauradelle
— “I am the kind of person who loves unconditionally, whether for a family, special someone or for friends. I will give my whole heart to you when I already proved that you are worthy of my love and trust. I will believe whatever you say to me, I will embrace your flaws, I will treat you as a part of my life, and I will do anything I can just for you and I will always be by your side no matter what happens. Along with this, I get hurt easily and get affected with simple mistakes you do to me.”

Ayah of askinnylover
— “One thing I love about myself is my baking skills. I don’t know how to express my love and care for my family and friends, so my way of showing is through baking them cake or pastries! :)”

Czarina of tangledinletters
— “One thing I love about myself… hmm.. I love how conscientious I get. I suppose it’s the Jiminy cricket in me that urges me to do good. To do things in the right time. To choose to do the right. What can I say, I just like being a good girl :)”

Darlyn of bookwormvintage
— “I actually love my eyes. I used to hate them when I was in high school, because I thought they looked too big. Now, I think they’re still big but in a good way.”

Jac of jaccarlos
— “I have two answers in mind:
1) I’m like a chameleon - I’m able to adapt quickly with new people or surroundings so that I’m comfortable and easy to be around. Being a chameleon has its perks. You’ll be able to experience many things, go to many places and meet a lot of new people easily, which I think is cool.
2) My ability to filter out all the negatives, making me optimistic. I’m like genetically wired to see the positives in life. If I wasn’t optimistic, I probably wouldn’t be the better person I am and have the awesome life I’m living now.”

Jeff of jeffffajardo
— “One thing I like about myself? Maybe my friendly attitude. I don’t know but I like being in good terms with people, I wanna be friends with strangers and take a peek at their own world. I feel like it’s really fun to meet different individuals and learn to get along with them, despite our different characteristics as a person.”

Maria of mydearestmaria
— “One thing that I like about myself is that.. I’ve learned to accept myself, in a way that I can stand on my own, that I don’t live as a part of the stereotype-lifestyle, because I know I am uniquely and wonderfully made by the Creator, and I live not to please other people, but please Him.”

Mikee of smilinglittlemadeline
— “There are times when I asked myself what could be the one thing that I love about myself. Truly, when love of oneself is being talked about, people might think of body features or such that could boost or elevate their self-esteem. Truthfully speaking, I used to answer that. But as I grow older and got to know more of myself, I believe that the one thing I love about myself is being able to see and find the light at the end of the darkest cave. 
Being an optimistic person has a lot of perks. I got to think and see the positivity in life. When in times of struggles or facing obstacles, I always look for the best in any situation plus expecting good things to happen any time soon. I emphasize the good things that showered upon me, grateful for all the blessings, move on when something bad happens, and radiate the positivity in life. 
I knew then how much of being an optimist could bring me to many opportunities, such that meeting new friends, joining organizations, leading to a better self, going out from my comfort zone, and most especially being a happy or jolly person. Always start from within and followed by radiating to others!”

Sian of theadventurethatislife
—  ”One thing I love about myself… my confidence! I’m very lucky to have the ability to comfortably speak to new people, it comes in very handy. Also, I’m pleased to be able to do things like presentations, my radio show, interviews and similar stuff without getting nervous! I would hate to be someone who misses out on opportunities because they weren’t brave enough to go for it.”
