Kisses Army

 

I wasn’t able to give my annual goodie treats last Christmas, for I was “busy” studying for the board exam. Actually, I was just short in funds because I was on my leave from work.

Shobe planned on giving her officemates some chocolates for Christmas. I can’t remember if she asked for my help or if I just volunteered… o_o; But, she did use my materials! (I always keep stock on gift wrappers, cellophanes, double sided tapes, etc.)

I took this when shobe was deciding the number of chocolates to give per person. 😀 I thought it did look like platoons.

Day 22 to Day 27

Day 22: Favourite Memory

m.a.j.e.


This was a hard theme. Honestly, nothing really popped out immediately after reading the topic. I had a good childhood. I have an endearing family and friends. They make me happy that 95% of the moments I spent with them are part of my fondest memories. (5% for misunderstandings).

I chose a different tactic to arrive to a solution. What is my recent best/happiest/favourite memory? I backtracked to what had happened early this year to last month. 😉 Nice thinking. Good Job.

On the eve of my birthday (I’m a December baby), it was our high school batch’s first Christmas party since graduating, well, high school. Minutes after midnight, we semi-celebrated my birthday with shots for everyone. I didn’t buy those shots, btw. (They were from the actual party. lol) It was my first time celebrating it like that. 🙂 It gave me warm and fuzzy feelings. That night, we (A and I) slept over at J’s house. It was also my first time to celebrate my birthday over at someone else’s house. 😉 We spent the whole day and afternoon just chilling.

The cake was a ‘surprise’ from the CCK siblings (J and her 2 sisters) and A. M was on skype, which was also a surprise. Love you dears~ ♥♥♥

 
Day 23: Any Animal/bird

Peanuts


Erm….. The birds in the neighbourhood don’t really… show themselves after working hours. And, mornings are always a rush here. The rest of the hours, I’m stuck inside the office. So… this is close enough… ^^; Woodstock.

 
Day 24: Random

mason jar and tea light


This photo was supposed to be number 102 photo, but I keep on forgetting to share it here. A few weeks ago I released my stress/irritation by doing some arts&crafts. I spray painted a few mason jars: 2 whites, 1 olive green, and 1 glow-in-the-dark. I didn’t know what to do with them yet minus the glow-in-the-dark one. That is until our house’s fuse box suddenly decided to not receive electricity from the main line anymore.

Good thing I had made the said project! The white ones were perfect. The candle inside the small white jar illuminated the room more than when the candle is outside the jar. Not to mention it is safer. For the tea light to not stick on the jar, I had a few stones and sands left from my modelling kit back in college. I poured all of my scraps inside, which was nothing much (approx. 1cm). I then placed the tea light on it. Ta-da~!

The set was on our porch.

 
Day 25: Purchased

a few items


Monopoly Deal was once a hipster thing. Now it’s mainstream. But, I still like it anyway. I have played this game since early last year, but I have just recently bought my own set (last Saturday to be exact). I’m planning on buying the Sorry! cards. Although, I don’t know anyone else here who is familiar with the Sorry! board game aside from achi and shobe…

The Hooray for Today is from Mcdonalds. I have mentioned this before on Day 7. Technically, I purchased this by completing the breakfast card. XD

Goody’s Spin Pin! I’m still practicing on how to use them on my medium length layered hair. I have tried it on my sister who has longer hair, and it was magic! I plan on buying the bun spin spiral, too! 🙂

 
Day 26: Small Objects


The pieces of jewellery are from mom’s, who gave it to me. I’m a dragon; hence the dragon pendant. My sisters have their’s, too. A tiger and a ram. Amongst the 3 of us, I wear earrings more often than my 2 sisters do. I only wear these for special occasions. But, I do sometimes wear the earrings on family day outs.

The other items are my small object necessities: The mp3 player to kill time; the bobby pins and hair bands for taming my hair; Lipice lipbalm for chapped lips (lol obviously); and Vicks VapoRub for sinusitis attacks.

 
Day 27: Building

around the vicinity of COEX, Seoul, South Korea


This is a photo from late last year, but I don’t think I had ever shared it here yet. This was not the most impressive building in Seoul, but I like the effect of the details when one looks at it from the ground. It’s almost psychedelic or mind-boggling!

Day 8: Chocolate

Choc*Nut

 

One of the country’s local chocolate. The size of one choc*nut is approxiamtely 2.54cm x 7.62cm (1″x3″).

I have been eating this since I was a kid, and it still is my number one fave local chocolate. =) It has a nutty taste; hence the name choc*nut I guess. (Chocolate and nut lol). Choc*Nut is usually included in my Christmas bag of goodies. 😀

Thank you to officemate who gave me 4 of these ^^. Nice timing for day 8~~

Day 2 to Day 5

DAY 2: Outdoor

The Ruins

 

This classical structure is a tourist attraction in Bacolod called The Ruins. The structure was built n the mid 1800s and then ‘burned down’ during the WWII. After more than 100 years, it is still standing proudly on the estate looking as if it is just under construction.

Imagine what it would have looked like when it was complete. The structure’s building materials and technologies used were top-notched: A-grade concrete, long-span 2-inch thick wooden floors (approx 1m x 20.5m), etc. They were also already using pipes for electrical wires. The septic tank used back then, is still being used right now. Inside the structure, there is a still well-kept interior garden. I can go on forever gushing about The Ruins, but I might bore you ;). All I can say is, THIS IS A MUST VISIT!!!

My sister went to Bacolod to attend a relative’s wedding. I was browsing through her photos and found this. I love the reflection of the structure. It looked as if the estate has a large pond when in fact, it doesn’t. It does have a fountain though ^^; I love the illusion of the photo.

Short history of the Ruins click here 🙂

 
DAY 3: Shadow of anything

site photo

 

This structure is actually one of my current job’s government project. I like how the sun was cast on the marble accent wall from the louvers. The shadow added drama to the structure. The second floor windows you see here are supposed to have horizontal louvers. Yeah… you just can’t not have problems in construction, especially when it is a government project.

 
DAY 4: Favorite Color

绿色

 

Well, obviously my fave color is green. Haha. These are the green-colored stuffs inside my bag today. I used to have more green stuffs. =)

 
DAY 5: What I ate

food from Bacolod

 

This is my lunch for today! Achi, dad, and grandma came home last night from Bacolod. One of the few things that must be brought home to enter the home is Aida’s Chicken Inasal! No other Chicken Inasal can be compared to this (…or maybe JT Manukan’s can).

My dessert/snacks: caramel boat tarts and butter scotches from Virgie’s, also from Bacolod. =)

goodie bag for this year

 

This year I only gave Christmas goodie bags for only 12 people. Unlike the previous years, I’d make it a point to give everyone treats in the class. ^^;

..lol summer colors! I had these colored papers lying around, and it was the perfect size! It would be a waste to not use them. I thought they look pretty. 🙂
