But I don't want to dwell on the negative, because so many happy things happened this week. Having PB in Manila is really like vacation all the time. I love it because I'm always out of the house, with the excuse that I have to bring him out. I'm so going to be sad when he leaves again -- which is soon!
|Red New Year||[Me!]|
[-] What's worse is I let PB wait for me in my college so he too was late to the lunch. And added to that, because the car was coding (and couldn't come out past 3pm), I had to bring the car home. I didn't want my mom to keep waiting for me so I just ate at home.
[+] Still, it was great to see Ali, Anna, Tracey and Mimi! Mimi and I were in red because it was Chinese New Years after all. It's too bad I don't get to see my girls as often as before. I miss them so much!
[+] I wasn't able to watch the entire Screen Actor's Guild Awards (because of said TV internship class meeting) but I did catch best actor, actress and supporting actor I think. I'm really even more excited for this year's Oscars just because I really want Slumdog Millionaire to win!
[+] PB made pineapple chicken and wow it's getting more real everyday. The stuff he's cooking seems to be more difficult and yet he's pulling it off! I'm useless in the kitchen so this is a huge thing for me -- eating PB's food and it's actually edible! and fabulous! And it felt so legitimate! An actual viand! By my brother!
[-] No Gossip Girl this week so that sucked, but then I could finally finish Skins Series 2 and though I was super tired (for some unknown reason), I only made it to episode 6. I fell asleep and had the absurdest dream ever. I dreamt that I had gotten into a school abroad that I didn't even apply to! I wish.
[-] Woke up for class, despite having slept at 7pm. The longer I sleep, the harder it is to get up. I love sleeping in. If I could do this for the rest of my life, I would. I can't wait till summer, cause then i can sleep without having to worry about anything: thesis, Spanish etc.
[+] Finally finally finished Skins Series 2 and it super tugged at my heart strings. All the characters had grown on me so much that I don't want to let any of them go. But apparenlty Skins Series 3 is pretty damn great too, so I'll see. But I feel bad that I have to say goodbye to Tony, Michelle, Jal, Chris, Cassie, Sid, Anwar and Maxxie. At least we still have Effy.
[-] Caught American Idol and well another underwhelming day. Maybe they're saving all the good ones for Hollywood or something. I sure hope so. Because if this is the crop they have this year, I don't know how I'll survive. But I know idol will surprise me one way or another. I'll just have to be patient.
|La Croqueta Deliciosa!||[Me!]|
[+] Watched Vicky Cristina Barcelona with PB right before lunch and I really really liked it. Other than the fact that Javier Bardem was extremely hot in it, his character Juan Antonio Gonzalo just knew how to work the ladies. And I really really want to learn Spanish more/live in Spain now.
[+] I started Skins S3 and wow, those Brits s ure know how to overhaul a show. I didn't think I'd like the cast as much as the First Generation (S1 and S2) but I actually do. The kids are all growing on me already and I can't wait to see what's next.
[+] PB made pansit canton for lunch (though technically it was instant) and for dinner he made croquettas! Damn those croquettas are delicious. La comida es muy deliciosa! I'm so jealous he can cook so well now, but not jealous enough to actually want to learn. Or at least not yet. I'll let him do the cooking, he's pretty darn good.
[+] In Spanish today, I learned how to say "I met someone interesting" which I hope will come handy one day when I finally do meet someone interesting -- preferrably of the male gender. Conoci a alguien interesante and perhaps we'd talk for quite a bit, then I'd tell my friend that we Estuve hablando con el mucho rato. One day, when I meet a hot Spanish boy, I will say this to PB, who will be the only one who will understand what I am saying though not necessarily care for what I am saying.
[-] Watched Rob's BBC television movie, The Haunted Airman and wow, I would not have watched it, if not for him. A bit on the 'scary' or trying to be scary side and I guess it just wasn't working for me somehow.
[+] Idol tonight was supposedly a 'special' two city episode which was better than Thursdays show, but still not good enough. I swear, Hollywood had better blow me away because this was just meh for me. Still, anything would be better than Wednesday and Thursdays edition of Idol.
[-] Ana and I wanted to drop by the last day of the Job Fair and unfortunately we were too late as there were barely any companies left. It scares me how I'm supposed to be thinking about work already. We're not even done with thesis yet and all these things (real world: job) need to be thought of. I honestly don't know what I want to do, so this is freaking me out.
[+] Went to my dad's frat brother's house for his birthday and the food was superb. We were on the children's half of the really long table and it was nice to see the kids of my dad's friends again. We grew up with these people and it's nice to catch up. What's nice was the open bar and the food too. We've definitely grown up cause all the boys were downing shots like they were water. We didn't do that before.

[+] And for my FIRST celebrity sighting of the year: Sunshine Dizon. I'm not her biggest fan, but I was so awestruck because girl is so pretty in real life! And she's so much thinner than on TV!!! I didn't know what to say.
ME: Hi! I used to watch Anna KareninaAwww, girl is too cute and too nice! I really hope her career continues to shine -- cause those genuinely nice people are hard to find.
SUNSHINE: *dumbstruck that someone actually watched that*
ME: Can I have a picture?
SUNSHINE: Yeah, sure.
ME: Thanks so much!
SUNSHINE: Have a great night!
