Randomness From Random Me

Applies to Shopaholic Series. To some Nicholas Sparks books.
To Bob Ong. To my other chick-lit books.
Our future room. I wish!
Yes, sister dear, I'll work harder (and please study harder)
so we can have this built! :)

5 Things I'm Thankful For #23

Do you agree with me? Well, you should. :)

Here goes my list:

1. U! For the opportunity they're giving us, normal people, to help others (especially the kids). You want to join their next event? Visit U! Happy Events to know more. :)

2. Covert Affairs and White Collar. You make my Sundays bearable, and something to look forward to.
I so love Auggie! For a blind guy, he'll make the CSI people eat dust.
Uhmm, no offense meant for Danny Messer, though. :)

Loving this pair already. :)

3. E! Aside from the various travels in the past months, events naman these past and coming days. Honestly, I've been enjoying every single day working for the company. :)

4. Army Navy. Gosh, have you tried their Breakfast Burrito? To. Die. For. That's all I can say.
Yes, I'm addicted to this.
Can you offer half-servings, please? :)

5. I! Is this post about single letters? Hahaha! Anyway, I'm so glad I have a new phone already! :)

Thank you. :)

I Almost Cried

Well, I think my dad would have cried first. If we were really being sentimental and emotional on my dear sister's 18th birthday.

My dad, browsing my sister's photo albums.
Getting teary-eyed, I think.

It's like we don't have a kid in the anymore. But mind you, we still call her 'Baby'. Hahaha!

Anyway, my sister posted something about the "I Almost Cried" incident last Saturday.

Sheesh, I miss our younger days...

And I Love Her So...

Do I need words to describe my deepest and unconditional love for my dearest sister?

Wish Granted.

Oh, make that wishes. Emphasis on the "S" please. :)

Ok now, can someone please award me with "The BEST-EST SISTER AWARD!"?

When my sister posted her birthday wishlist, I know I can get her most (if not all).

So, a few days after she told the whole world what she wants to receive for her birthday, I bought here these:
Uhmm, not ALL. But as of last night, I got her 4 (or is it 5) already.
The same time I bought Me and Mr.Darcy, I got her this, too:

I even joined Patty's blog contest, I might win a WATCH for my dearest sister.
(Patty, if you're reading this. Please make me win just in time for my sister's birthday tomorrow - the 16th)

Lastly (Not really. But for this blog post, it's the last), I've been waiting for IT to arrive for two weeks now. I was really hoping that it comes before my sister's birthday. And today's the last working day of the week, I kept on following it up with our IT team. Come 4:58pm, I was packing up already and lost hope of getting it today. (Maybe next week na lang, I thought to myself).

I was about to shut down my laptop already, when someone said to me, "Ma'am, matutuwa po kayo kasi dumating na po." I shrieked. For real! Hahaha!

Anyway, pa-suspense muna. (Although I think you can easily guess what 'arrived' naman, maarte lang ako. Hahaha!). This is about my sister, her birthday, her gifts. :)
Happy Birthday!
Yes, you can have my iPod Touch already. :)

No Good-byes, Just See You Later

I'd like to dedicate this post to a dear friend, F. Hahaha!
At least now I know someone's looking forward to my new posts. :p

Well, I really don't have anything to write about today.

So, just an extension of my "Things to be thankful for", 

I am thankful for dear friends.
Dear friends whom I shared office cubicles with.
Wonderful friends whom I shared pandesal, pancit canton, bacon, Chic-boy, Buddy's, Amber's with.
Special friends who enjoyed the birthday cakes I ordered from Sugarhouse, Purple Oven, and Red Ribbon.

Even though we have "semi"-parted ways, I know we'll always be friends.

Yuck, ang cheesy lang, no? :p
Wala talagang masabi. Hahaha!

But really, I'm thankful that I have these extreme friends. Who I know I can count on for anything. :)

5 Things I'm Thankful For #22

For my 22nd "5 Things", I think I can come up with more than five. :)

In no particular order, and very limited explanation, here goes my grateful list.

1. Dear sister. For being such a dear and great one. You're the greatest, actually. :)

2. CashCashPinoy. Spirals Buffet for 50% off! :D

3. Globe. Oh, I'm just excited. Hahaha!

4. U! Happy Events. For the opportunity they're giving people (like me) to help KIDS from different groups.

Do you want to join U! Event on July 16?
Visit their Facebook page to learn more.

5. Castle. You made my Bicol trip exciting. Hahaha!

6. Teeyah. For "2011: The Year So Far" post. I am tempted to do this. I'm just mustering more energy and gathering the time I need to reflect on my 1st great half of 2011. :)

7. X. Thank you. <3

8. Best Couple Friends. For our bi-monthly dates. Movies. Dinners. Coffee Drinks.

Miss our group already. Too bad we can't make it this Sat. :(
9. National Bookstore. Especially the NB Bestseller branch in Galleria. You make me bankrupt, but it's all worth it when I get to read the books I bought from your store. :)
Finally, a paperback edition. (source)

How about you, anyone you want to thank today? :)
