Quezon - my paradise...ehem...thanks glenny for this pic.
visions of the beach bums...
this is the whole group. taken right before we went home.
(from left) JT, Nick, Van, Gem, Me, Lette, Cas, Ruth, Anton and Glenn
they will probably kill me if they knew i posted these pics (am so sorry glenn, i know you will read this. hehe) but i just have to ask...what is it with these fine men and YES! magazine??? the one with the story about kris aquino's grandiose lifestyle pa ha! hahahaha.
meet the bronze buddha to your left (and i still smile each time i remember his story on how he tanned his underbelly). hehehe. anton loved it when we called him the bronze god while touching his stomach. haha. he brought along this miniature mahjong set and taught all of us how to play it.
and this is how we were set up during our ummm..drinking sessions. (nakakatawa pa how anton would label each drinking session as afternoon cocktail, sunset cocktail, before lunch cocktail, etc. hay! :) it's just too bad that we weren't able to take a picture of the massive amount of alcohol we brought to quezon (considering there were just 10 of us, 3 of whom do not drink. hehehe.) we had a bottle of tequila and jagermeister, a bottle of mudshake, 2 flavored lambanogs, 5 bottles of rhum, 2 bottles of novellino's red wine (which i so totally loved when mixed with sprite) and a case of san mig light. syempre we didn't consume them all. we had a little left over...mga half the tequila, 1/4 of the lambanog and 7 bottles of san mig light. hehehe. and the nerve of us to call ourselves social drinkers diba??? hahaha.
the ihaw group - lette, anton and glenn. (i took this pic while i was lying comfortably - and complaining at that, dahil nauusukan ako at pwede na ko tumilaok - in the hammock. hahaha.)
below are pics of me and the gels. :)
(left) cas, me, lette and gem. (right) gem, van, me, lette and cas.
(top) van and me. (bottom) me and lette.
below naman are pics of us being silly while we were waiting for the others to get ready to go home. believe it or not, this series of pictures actually has a story and directors and cameramen behind it. hahaha. go figure what it's all about. one thing i concluded though. am so not made for the camera (it took us 1 million takes to get these 4 shots). sabi ko na nga ba kaya ginawa ako ni lord na programmer eh. hahaha. actors: glenn, lette and me.
and last. my favorite artistic shots taken by the ultimate photographer glenn. (ayan ha, i gave you credit. libre promote pa sa blog ko. hahahaha.) i love the shot of anton and van. it looks so candid. :) and well, nick looks like juan tamad. hahaha. and glenn looks so lonesome.
so there. next week i'll probably be posting new beach pictures from our trip to boracay naman. yay!!! :)
visions of quezon...
before i forget to mention, let me thank glenny and gem for all the wonderful pics i'll be posting here. (glenn keeps saying kasi na he can own my blog and friendster na because it's so full of pics taken from his digicam. hehehe.)
so anyways, this picture on the left is by far the next best Quezon shot. syempre the best is still the panoramic one i posted at the top of my page. hehehe. glenny took this early morning shot from the balcony of the house.
if only we have the luxury of having this charming view each morning we wake up...sigh. i swear i was in heaven the 2 mornings i woke up there. :)
the next pics, i'll just fondly call the hammock shots. i sooo loved this hammock! marlette and i were supposed to sleep on it the 2nd night we were there. but by the time 4AM rolled in, we were too ummm...tipsy to walk from the hut to the hammock. thus, we ended up sleeping in the hut beside the toppled beer bottles and the half full tequilla and the empty bottle of jagermeister and the chips scattered everywhere.
that's marlette on the left and glenny on the right. i actually woke up at 6AM and tried to sleep in the hammock (for about 15 mins) until i realized little elmo pillow (even if i tried putting it at the top of my face while sleeping) can't protect my head from coconuts falling from the tree. hehehe.
our hang out place in the beach - the nipa hut. we whiled the hours away lounging here, reading books and magazines, playing mahjong (anton taught us how to play mahjong! yay!) and catch-a-phrase, talking, drinking, eating, or simply enjoying the fresh air and watching the waves kiss the sand in the shore.
annnddd...well, can i just say i love this photo of me and marlette? :)
and lastly, because we were all so frustrated by this shot of van, jen and shawie (the last time we went there)...
we (myself, cas, marlette and gem) decided to redo the shot to make it perrrfectt. so now here it is. :)
visions of the beach bums coming up.
now you know why am crazy over Quezon. :)
if there is such a word...then i'm it. :)
no matter how exhausted i was the previous week, the sleep and rest i had over the weekend more than made up for it. i was actually bored out of my mind! hehehe.
after spending the weekend in glorious Quezon (where i really thought am so contented and happy i could just die. teehee.), we go back to work come monday and pound on our PCs like there's no tomorrow. well, there actually is no tomorrow since we're on our deadliest deadline. so here i am, 3AM sitting in front of my PC, right where i was the previous night, working my ass off.
if i wasn't still all aglow over the wonderful weekend i spent in the beach, i'd be all stressed out and frustrated by now.
ang toxic ha. i went home 4AM last night and i've been working for 15hrs already. today alone. suskupo. 2 days worth of work na yun sa mga normal na trabaho.
hay. don't you just sometimes wish you have an 8AM-5PM job?
pics of our trip to the beach coming up. just as soon as i get a logical break and enough time to upload the photos.
another two days in paradise...
in a few hours...3 hrs to be exact, anton, cas, nick, glenn, marlette, ruth, van, JT, gem and i will be on our way to Pagbilao, Quezon.
looking at the photo above never fails to bring back memories of the glorious 2 days we spent there. imagine fresh air, white sand, crystal clear water and the whole stretch of the beach - all yours. no strangers around. you can do anything and everything and enjoy it's tranquility from sunrise til sunset til dawn.
we've been begging anton (their family owns the place) to take us there since he got back from Germany. this trip has been postponed 3 times since then. and right now, am just about ready to burst with excitement.
i can't believe am actually going to wake up tomorrow with this beautiful sight outside the window.
sigh. i absolutely love the beach. did i say that already? :)
just something i got from reading mec's archive :)
i got the same result as her though.
Your heart is broken. You were in love and somehow
or someway, it became lost to you and you have
never fully recovered. You yearn for someones
gentle kiss but know not where to find it and
are afraid of being hurt again. Have faith
little lost one, if you let it, love will
flourish for you again.
What is Your Hearts True Desire? brought to you by Quizilla
kaya nga sabi ko no one understands me better than her
. we did go through and felt the same things at one point in our lives. :)
if anyone knows the title and author of any of these poems...
do please tell me so i can quote properly. :)
The reason why it hurts so much to separate
is because our souls are connected.
maybe they always have been and will be.
maybe we've lived a thousand lives before this one
and in each of them we've found each other.
and maybe each time, we've been forced apart for the same reasons.
that means that this goodbye is both a goodbye
for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.
When i look at you, i see your beauty and grace
and know they have grown stronger with every life you haved lived.
and i know i have spent every life before this one searching for you.
not someone like you, but you,
for your soul and mine must always come together.
and then, for a reason neither of us understands,
we've been forced to say goodbye.
I would love to tell you that everything will work out for us,
and i promise to do all i can to make sure it does.
but if we never meet again and this is truly goodbye,
i know we will see each other again in another life.
we will find each other again,
and maybe the stars will have changed,
and we will not only love each other in that time,
but for all the times we've had before.
I don't know what to say anymore
except that i couldn't sleep last night
because i knew that it is over between us.
it is a different feeling for me,
one that i never expected,
but looking back,
i suppose it couldn't have ended another way.
You and i were different.
we came from different worlds,
and yet you were the one who taught me the value of love.
you showed me what it was like to care for another,
and i am a better man because of it.
i don't want you to ever forget that.
I am not bitter because of what has happened.
on the contrary, i am secure in knowing that what we had was real,
and i am happy we were able to come together for even a short period of time.
and if, in some distant place in the future,
we see each other in our new lives,
i will smile at you with joy,
and remember how we spent a summer beneath the trees,
learning from each other and growing in love.
and maybe, even for a brief moment, you'll feel it too,
and you'll smile back,
and savor the memories we will always share together.
please give me enough confidence so that i can wear the skimpy swimsuits
i bought last week. hehehe.
and also, now that marlette and i already bought the plane tickets, and we're days away from paying the deposit for the cottage we'll be renting, and we've already assembled the outfits that we're gonna wear all 4 nights that we'll be staying there...sana masabi ko na sa parents ko na pupunta akong boracay diba?! hahaha.
last week, my instructor at the gym measured my BMI. I was somewhere between good
. in short, sobra daw ako sa fats. and i was like, whatthehell?! sa payat kong to? sobra pa ko sa fats?! haha. labo. kung hindi lang sya cute hindi ako maniniwala sa kanya eh. hahaha. :)
