valentine's mints: we're mint to be, benzai
5. fave hang-out place
B : Bel waiting shed
Z : *what ben said*
6. date & place of first date?
B : first date was supposedly pancake house but zaila saw her friends and got shy so we went out. official first date was at TOSH, january 21, 2014.
Z : *what ben said*
7. who shops more?
B : maybe me. HAHAHAHA
Z : i think the answer to this is obvious. i'm the one waiting for him to come out of the dressing room...instead of the other way around.
8. share a benzai moment with us!
B : we were searching for this milk tea in a bottle that i was craving for months and then we found out it was in 7/11. it was around 11:30 that time and we were walking around campus. we told the guard to keep the gate open. we ran to 7/11 and bought an even better milk tea in a bottle. zaila was so tired but gates closed at 12 so i carried zaila and ran thru the foot bridge and made it just in time. (pheww!)
Z : so many to choose from!!! but...*what ben said*
9. what's this jar?
B : when zaila asked me what i wanted for christmas, i said "anything." then she told me, "okay lang ba ang pagmamahal?" i said sure then she gave me the jar.
Z : since love is something that's not tangible, i tried to make it tangible!! every note in this jar starts with "because..*a reason why i love him*" he told me he just read one note and it made him cry. HAHAHA he's not gonna read the notes until we get a little bit older.
10. opposite attracts. yes or no?
B : yes.
Z : yes?
11. ben, what made you fall in love with zai?
B : i honestly don't know. she's the opposite of all the things i want in a girl but hey, i'm still in love.
12. aaand you? other half?
Z : i really don't know the answer to this question. i just did and i do, everyday.
13. best thing about falling in love
B : being aware that someone aside from family loves you.
Z : you know that there's someone waiting for you to wake up in the morning. plus it's nice to go home to someone after a long and stressful day.
14. any love advice?
B : if it's true love, even w/ the greatest adversities and the most stupid decisions, there's a desperate need to stay together and there's an action to that desperation.
Z : if you truly love each other, giving up on each other is not an option. love is never easy but it is enough to keep going. ben told me recently, "[even tho] the world conspires to having us together, we should never leave each other."
happy valentine's day, loves! Xx

BLACK MEETS WHITE
i am so happy to have these crays as my sisters. i love them to bits! and because of our coincidental matching colors-white and black, we decided to take some photos today. we were walking down the streets of Grace (our high school and i highly recommend this school) and spotted this white fence at the kindergarten area that we thought would be the perfect backdrop for our pictures. (warning: this post is image heavy.)
white cap, f21
shorts, made by her mother (how cool!)
watch, michael kors
"75" top, topshop
pants, pink celebrity by macy's
black cap, stradivarius
flats, hush puppies
Aaand the day has arrived. FINALLY. We crammed this play in a week and we are doing really great too. two classes X 3 judges + sir Diccion. winners' paper will be waived and get a perfect score. WHOA. now who wouldn't take this play for serious??
the place was so cool. just a small room with matte-finished black walls. the play felt real (it IS real, pauline!) especially the backstage and timing parts. truly a memorable and awesome experience! i..proudly can say that i was an extra. HAHAHA. it was nerve-wracking but that's what makes it fun.
my kaloka-like when smiling, Zaila. isn't she lovely? #justlikeme
backstage with Maan, Angela and Ira.
(from ←to →)
we started with Intelstar
And then TRES ATTAQUES DE CORAZON where i participated as an extra
can you spot me??
the end. we did our best. yes, we did. unfortunately, i am semi-disappointed to announce that we did not win the battle. HAHAHA! it's fine though. 500-700 words reaction paper, here we come!
this was absolutely one of the best times of my college life.
Today was full of rainbows. dead tired but marvelous. i was actually with Gretchen Ho. YES. the famous volleyball player of the Ateneo or rather, the kaloka-like of Gretchen Ho-Nicole. HAHAHA. I swear Nicole just reminds me of Gretchen Ho so much! anyways, the Ateneo grade school had a fair that we impromptly attended today. the sun was scourching but...those kids were way too irresistible that i just had to take home some babies-photos. a-dorbs!!
Evertt even had a photo taken with this kiddie artistaaaaaaa HAHAHA
another cutie i can't resist
some kids even tried to "kidnap" us for a fund raise. how cute! also we're actually quite taller aaaand...another HOW CUTE!
and my my my. look at these three!
guys, meet Gretchen Ho's kaloka-like, Nicole.
unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to experience those ultimate rides due to our tight schedule. kyna, jam, and lauren have to study. evertt needed to go home. nicole had to kill time in the rizal lib while waiting for me and i had to practice for our filipino theatrical play tomorrow. YUP. I am officially an extra! yay! we had extra fun tonight at elevate, oh you guys should try going! it's really really really fun.
p.s. we did a "worn" photoshoot(sorta) that i would be posting soon(so stay tuned) before going to the fair. →HERE
A SIMPLE REMINDER
God makes the impossible possible so we should be afraid of nothing. He is with us always, and He loves us so dearly. if anyone wants to know more about our heavenly Father, don't hesitate to leave your emails on the comment box below :)
We ended our September 1 with jambalicious Jamba Juice! I recommend the Banana Berry & the Strawberries Wild plus a boost of 4 healthy choices like antioxidants or vit C! Though those two are their best-sellers! Hahaha! Hope you had a great 1st day of September too!X
Good news!! The newest branch of Starbucks is now open. Oh yay! Oh yay!
