APARADOR botique

 I had a very long day at market2x. I spent 4 hours in the mall looking for a white outfit that I will use this Saturday. Since white is never my thing, I find it really difficult to chose from the variety of clothes that the mall has to offer. Good thing  my sister reccomended a store at the Fashion Market called APARADOR. They offer variety of clothes, shoes and bags all of sizes. They offer plus sized fashionista clothes on a very reasonable price. I find the store really awesome and I would definitely visit them again when I have the money. Thanks to APARADOR, my problem has been solved. For sure, my relatives will envy the accessories and clothes that I will wear on Saturday. I'm super excited!

I'm a pirate for a day!

As usual, I spend every Tuesday of my life in the hospital. I have to attend this weekly check-up to see if my condition is getting better or the other way around. This morning, I had two eye tests to determine if my vision is improving. Good thing the oral medication is working! On the other hand, I was surprised to find out that there's still a little inflamattion at the center of my left eye. This caused a blurry effect on my vision. As a solution, they injected my left eye with a steroid that is painful and at the same time made my eyelids numb. Because of the injection, my doctor put an eye patch on my left eye. It made me look like a very ridiculous pirate! It's been three hours since they put this patch and I can't wait for it to be removed ! Hopefully, after all of this injections and tests, I will be better in the coming weeks.

deadlines = stressors

There's nothing more stressful than meeting deadlines. Even if you're used to cramming, i'm sure you will surely agree with me. I was given a day to formulate a master calendar from July 19 to Aug 15. The master calendar will serve as our guide/ to-do list since our show is like three weeks form now. What made this task harder is that you have to consider the things to be done in every department of a production. This means you have to formulate a rehearsal schedule, props,  repair schedule, music and lights requirements, etc. Good thing I have my stage managers to back me up. They are like angels sent by heaven. With their help, we formulated a very good calendar that will surely work for the production. Hopefully, with the help of the master calendar, everything will run smoothly as planned.

late night rehearsal

It's 8:00 in the evening and my day is far from over. I have to attend the late night rehearsal of our theater group in preparation of our upcoming production this August. I'm really excited because last night's rehearsal has been cancelled  due to heavy rains. There's a massive power interruption all over Metro Manila which ruined my day. Today, everything is back to normal. I attended my Rizal class this afternoon and now, Im getting ready for the rehearsal. Good thing I have my phone to keep me company. Wish me luck!

thank GOD it's Sunday

I feel like choosing Sunday as my favorite day in a week. As usual, I cooked breakfast and lunch for my family. Meat is not allowed in the menu so I decided to think of healthy but delicious recipes. Well, it's always been my dilemma in feeding my brother because  he's used in eating meat his entire life. I decided to cook sauteed bittermelon and fried fish for lunch. Good thing they enjoyed the food! After lunch, I uploaded some photos in my Facebook account. The pictures are mostly from our Friday night out and some are from our acting workshop. After 2 hours in my laptop, I went to the church wiith my brother. It feels so good to visit God once in a while. The joy of connecting with the creator still lingers through my veins. I just feel so alive and happy with the mass. After the mass, I ate dinner, had my last sip of water and watched some T.V. I am not allowed to eat after 8PM because the doctor advised me not to eat or drink anything for 12 hours in preparation for my laboratory test the following day. Since I can't have anything after 8PM, I decided to enjoy the rest of the night facing the laptop. It may look as a boring day but I can assure you that it's not. Im looking forward on more Sundays to come. Hopefully, Sundays will be as good as this one.

night of freedom version2.0

Last night was surely a night to remember. Since my dad attended a 3-day seminar, we planned some activities to do while he is still away. We started things off with a late night dinner at Libis. It's been a ritual of the family to visit SOMETHING'S FISHY at Eastwood because the restaurant never fails to meet our expectations! Talk about the food, the service, etc. Not to mention the buffet price which is really affordable. So basically, I picked foods that I missed eating. Let's just say I became connected with the inner pig in me again. (LOL) We enjoyed the buffet for 2 hours and we left the restaurant at 2AM.

Patty and co. decided to go home while Jasper, Joben and I decided to stay and continue the fun. Full much, it took us 30 minutes to decide on what bar to enter to enjoy the rest of the night. Looks like our brain lipids became inactive due to so much food in the belly! To cut the long story short, We enjoyed an hour at H20 BAR. We chill out, have some non-alcoholic drinks (i'm not allowed to drink beer because i'm under medication) and enjoyed the live band that the bar offers. At 4AM, the boys took me home and we all decided to get some rest. Never did I imagine that i'll enjoy the first night of freedom without some alcohol in my system. Now that's what you call harmless fun! Watch out for more versions of "NIGHT OF FREEDOM" in the coming months :).

NO PE class, more PRODUCTION!

When I was diagnosed with VKH, my doctor told me to make arrangements with my PE professor. I am allowed to do 1 physical activity per day. I have to limit my activities so that it won't cause any trauma to my eyes. When I had y medical certificate in hand, I had a meeting with my PE professor and the head of the PE Department. They allowed me not to do activities such as swimming and arnis but I have to exert extra effort on the upcoming projects of the PE Department this coming August. Im really happy with the arrangements because I'm assigned to do a task that sprung my interest.

F.Y.I, I've been in the stage management scene for two years now and I can say that I pretty much know the ropes inside a production. Good thing my professor as well as his boss is considerate enough with my condition. I'm looking forward to more productions ahead of me this semester. I wouldn't miss this for the world!

A night of freedom

Last friday, my dad attended a teambuilding seminar at Mt. Makiling. Since it's a 3-day seminar, I was left at home with my siblings. Of course, we planned some things to do for us to enjoy that 3 days without dad! Can you imagine living 3 days of your life without a parent/s? Such a breathe of fresh air.. LOL! What we did was that we started our first night with a late dinner @ Libis. We dined at our favorite resto called "SOMETHIN'S FISHY". I'm sure some of you have heard of the place since it's like the only resto in the Metro that offers a late night buffet meal for like 130.00. It comes with a bottomless drink for only 55.00. Now that's what you call affordable :D!

So after that sumptuous dinner, we decided to have fun @ Malate. Now ladies, if you're in for some fun, try to visit the bars along Orosa-Nakpil St. My favorite bar there is Che-lu. The entrance fee is very affordble and it comes with 2 beers plus the food is excellent! I'm sure couple of gays out there will agree with what i've said. :) Around 3am, we decided to leave the bar and we headed to the grocery shop nearby. We went home at 5:30 AM and slept at 6AM. Due to exhaustion, we woke up at 4pm. We even forgot to have lunch! Oh well, we didn't have the same plan for the following day. We just enjoyed our free day inside the house. You know, the typical movie night/slumber party.

I really did enjoy the moments while my dad was away. That sure brought a feelin of happiness all over my bod! So much better than vanilla ice cream with hot fudge :) Im so looking forward to the seminars that my dad will attend to in the coming months. I am sure, the next time my dad is away, riot will surely take place in the house. It's gonna be fun!

GOD is the answer ...

Last month, something bad happened to me. I was diagnosed with a rare disease that may took months/ years to be treated. Have you ever heard of VKH syndrome? Based on what my doctor said, it's a disease without a sure cause. You can say that the ratio of people who have VKH is like 1 in a million. This disease attacks the pigments in your body, meaning every part of your body that has something to do with pigments can be affected. Talk about the skin, hair, eyes, etc. Unlucky for me, it targeted the eyes first.

In short, my left eye got blind and my right eye (which is a good eye) is starting to get blurry. When i heard about the doctor's prognosis, i felt like my world fell apart. My doctor required me to have my check-up at least once a week and aside from that, minimize the activities that i usually do per day. Now here's the thing: Im a graduating student, dealing with lots of deadlines. Put yourself into my shoes. One physical activity per day won't work for me. I don't even remember what my doctor told me after that. I eventually burst into tears eventhough lots of patients are watching me. Right at that very moment, i realized some important things in life. I realized how important every part of my body is. I also realized how important it is to finish college and help my parents in the future.

At that point in my life, I decided to talk to GOD. At some point, i felt guilty. To be honest, im not the typical catholic who goes to church every Sunday and pray the rosary. I pray only when needed or whenever I feel like doing it. So you see, I talked to him. I asked forgiveness on my wrongdoings. I thanked him for the blessings that he showered me for the past 18 years of my life. Lastly, I talked with him about my disease. It's in a form of a conversation between a parent and a child. After talking with him, I realized another important thing in life: GOD answers our prayers and He will never let you down.

After two weeks of treatment, I found out that my eyes reacted well on the medicine and there's a big improvement in my vision. If this will continue, shorter treatment will be required for me to recover from this disease.

You see, GOD find ways for us to connect with Him. I look at my disease differently than before. I look at my disease as GOD's way of connecting with me. I can say that now, things have changed for the better. I became closer not just to Him, but to the people that I love. I became more contented and happy with what I have. It feels so good to be back in GOD's arms. I know this is a good start for self improvement. Im very confident that with GOD by my side, nothing is impossible.

copyright law?

I got really pissed yesterday when we discussed about the President's speech. My prof felt betrayed because some of my classmates copied blogs from the net and used it as their reaction paper. I'm really angry with them because my reaction is SO ORIGINAL! It was hard for me to keep the balance of my reaction towards the speech. The whole room was very quiet when my prof spoke her heart out about the whole situation. I was very disappointed because the mistakes of others became our mistake. I don't know if COPYRIGHT LAW really exists.

In my opinion, It's okay to get idea from articles in the internet. You can make your own statements but never copy the whole thing. You're not just insulting your mentor, you're also insulting yourself. Never make it as a hobby.

happy to the nth level!

Last Sunday was the best day of the month. I did some things that i missed doing when i was a child. Since it's my dad's birthday, we decided to visit church as a family. Well yeah, I can say that it's like the first time after a long time. We're not use to visiting church altogether. We do pray but they said it's more effective to talk with Him when more people are involved. As I connect with God, it felt so light, as if my problems are washed out just in a snap. The heartaches disappeared. It's really true that GOD listens to our prayers. Prayers can surely move mountains.
