Friends are Gifts from God

in every trip that i have, i always have a realization afterwards. and for the recently concluded singapore trip, it's realizing that i'm really blessed with the best friends God can bestow to someone.

i'm really thankful for my friends who are now based in singapore for having the time to see, accompany and help me and my sister when we were there. most of them really had to travel far (yes, i know it's just an mrt away..but still it's a 30-minute ride), the tiring walking around. and also spending lots of cellphone load to call and text us. hehe. and also for the treat.. food trip galore. hehe. because of this i slightly fell in love sa singapore.

for beng who offered their house to us. accompanied us even if it's raining (malay ba natin na uulan) and even if it means luluwas siya out of tampines. hehe
for tatee and mike who accompanied us to sentosa even if it's their nth time there. tatee, for watching song of the sea and touring us around town; and mike for the lovely photos
i'll back so that the bld people can have a reunion again, hopefully in less than a year's time. hehe

for ljieu and linc who accompanied us all throughout. foodtrip galore

for julie who went all the way just to get my gift for my inaanak. hehe.
for ann, the birthday girl, who would supposedly meet me on her special day. i'm really sorry ann.

i'm also thankful for the angels to whom (that are here) i have first announced where i'm going and when i asked them what they would like for me to bring home for them, they have the same reply : that i'll enjoy my vacation and that would be enough. i'm really touched with that. thank you. i did enjoy the vacation.
for kyels who helped with our malaysia questions.
for those who prayed that i'll have this vacation: kirby, wakieboardies, chian, jewel.. thank you.

and of course to my sister, who had been patient. hehehe.

yup, this is just a thank you post. coz that weekend just really showed me how much blessed i am with my friends. it truly is an incredible weekend and that is thanks to my friends

1. i saw an avp this week made for my dad's highschool reunion. there were pictures of him (recent pictures) smiling. and i was like shocked. because his smiles were like my smiles when my pictures are taken. the missing eyes smile.

yihee! sweet! hahaha
wait! just look at the smiles and not our big bodies. hahaha

2. nowadays, i sleep late. it's because i'm getting addicted to a taiwanese series (pobs, this is all your fault. hehe) and korean movies (dyo, your fault. hehe). however late it is, i will watch one episode of the series or one movie. or if time permits, one each. hehehe. and because of this, my sister asked me the other day if i would like to go with them to south korea next year when they visit the place. hahaha

3. last week, i was looking for consultants and their capabilities. so how do i do it? via google. when i got a free time, i tried to google my name. nothing about me. hehehe. it's only when i searched for pretty tin that it's really related to me. but when you search for this certain store in google, there's a big probability that my blog would be the number one result

4. for the past three weeks, dad of a friend would die. every week. i know everyday someone is dying. but if it's every week and if it's a family member of someone you know, it's really saddening. again, my condolence and prayers to my friends and their families.

License to be Pretty

one day, Ate Toe and i were chatting and she told me that after five years she once again got her philippine driver's license. welcome back ate toe! i asked her how was her picture. she said that of course, no one is beautiful at their driver's license photo. i totally objected. i'm proud of my picture on my driver's license. hehehe. i remember when i got my license. i really smiled for the camera. and my sister was like saying that i was OA. but when we both got our license, she kept on asking why i looked good. hahahaha. even if it's not a picture for friendster, still i smile like it's going to be my primary pic in the internet. of course! coz i'm sure other people would still see it.

what i just do not like with my license is my signature. i really can't understand how my signature here is way different than my original signature. oh well...

so what can you say about the picture? i'm sure it's not also obvious that i haven't taken a bath yet when that was taken. hahahaha
