2 Years Ago

I can’t believe this.

I have been blogging here in WP for 2 years now, few days ago I have thought of my 1st entry/post here in WP, I have completely forgot about it, I forgot my “1st day” here in WP ๐Ÿ˜€

I checked on the archives and yeah it was on the 25th of Feb, year 2011.

Wow! This is indeed a great feeling.

I love blogging and I know that I am meant to do this for the rest of my life.

The last 2 years has been very amazing, I’ve met a lot of cool people, some of them has inspired me to blog more and improve my way of blogging.Some people taught me how to really enjoy life.

Some entries that I’ve read helped me to realize what is really essential in my life.

I honestly don’t know what to say or blog right now. I know I am happy ๐Ÿ˜€

I guess I should probably talk more about this tomorrow…or maybe on my next entry. I had a busy weekend so I think that’s the reason why I can’t think well ๐Ÿ™‚

But like I said, I’m glad to be here. This is really what I love to do. I am very very thankful for the people who’s been really good to me here in WP and elsewhere in blogosphere.

Valentines Week

Hey guys,thisย a late entry for “valentines”,celebrated it a little late as well since me and Jo have to work on valentine’s day. But for us, everyday is valentines day ๐Ÿ˜€ (okay, I apologize if I’m being mushy again) and is not really how much you say I Love You, it’s more of how you prove it.

During our 1st few weeks I would tell him I love you everyday, I would text him saying I love you like more than 10x in a day. But when we decided to live together, things changed.I realized that he’s the type of guy who can make me fall in love everyday, and he doesn’t even have to tell me that he loves me ’cause I can actually feel it. Anyway, here’s some of our pictures on valentines week.

ย ~ my gift to Mama, ever since my father left I’ve decided that I’ll give her “something” on valentines day. She deserves to have a smile on her face even though she doesn’t have a “significant other”. I’m glad whenever I see her smiling, genuinely smiling.

SAM_4192-001

~ Ube cake, mama bought this. It was good, not too sweet and I love that it’s not that moist but not dry, just right for my taste buds ๐Ÿ˜€

SAM_4195 (2)-001

~ my gift to Jo.

SAM_4200-001

~ few days before Valentines Day I wrote a letter to Jo using those pink,heart-shaped post it : I bought those Wonka Bottle Caps for myself ๐Ÿ˜€ : Jo came home on valentines night with a single rose ๐Ÿ™‚

SAM_4209

~ can’t help it just have to take a pic with my rose :D, behind me as you can see is an old cabinet. It was my mom’s but since she got a new one, I decided to use it. I think the cabinet is about 28 years old.Actually we have so many stuff that’s older than me ๐Ÿ™‚ my mom is such a good “item keeper”.

SAM_4212

~ random pic: Goldee feeling like a baby, trying to get Mama’s attention.

SAM_4214

~ It seems like she’s saying something to my Mom.

Goldee : Ma, I’m hungry, please get up and feed me.

Ma: oh, you’re hungry? I’m too lazy to get up ๐Ÿ˜€

Just kidding! That’s just my idea.

~ She can’t decide what to eat first ๐Ÿ˜€

We had Chicken Fettucine Alfredo, Manhattan Meat Lovers Pizza (all meat of course) and my favorite Twice Baked Potato Halves (these are potatoes with cheese and bacon….sooooooo yummy! ย – I know carbs galore ๐Ÿ˜€ )

SAM_4227

~ Fight! Go ma!

Alright, that’s about it for our valentines week celebration ๐Ÿ™‚ but of course this doesn’t end here, we should celebrate love everyday and you don’t have to really celebrate it with your partner all the time. Celebrate love with your mom, dad, brothers and sisters…your friends, boss or your pets. Spread the love (not the disease – you guys know what I mean)

Honesty Challenge : Day 11

Oh my gee, I have completely forgot about this challenge, hi hi hi. I have so many things that I want to blog about but can’t seem to find the perfect timing. I have yet to share our pics from Baguio…and our week long celebration of Valentines. But for now, I will do this challenge.

Day 11: First girl youโ€™d turn to?ย ย ย 

Recently,when I have some questions in life I would go to Marisa (I prefer calling her Gov,because she resembles Batagas Governer Vilma Santos). She’s been a very good friend of mine since middle of last year. She’s a nurse turned BPO representative.

Probably because of the fact that she’s older than me it gives me this ย feeling that she knows a lot, actually whenever I would go to her she gets to answer ย my questions – but never ask her about computations or analyze your personality, she’ll bluntly tell you to go to hell, ha ha.

She is a very funny person, there’s just no dull moment when I’m with her, me and the girls are always laughing because she really have a great sense of humor.

She’s like an older sister for me, she tells me what type of clothes will look good on me, make up etc.

Me and Marisa : Baguio City, December 2012

What about you? Is there like a specific person that you turn to whenever you have questions about life?

Thanks for your time reading/checking my blog, xOxO

Party Party

Last month, we had our “annual party” , the theme was “REWIND”. it’s like going back to what’s in (fashion trend, music etc) during the 80’s,90’s and 2k. It was fun, watching the big boss dancing,dressed up and all that…totally cool! ย The biggest boss in the company danced Gangnam Style (I was expecting that, I’ll be disappointed if he didn’t)

The food was absolutely delicious,compared to last year’s meal. ๐Ÿ˜€

I didn’t drink at all because if I did, I’ll feel sleepy and I may not be able to sing, few moments after the party we went “videoke-ing”.

I love singing, too bad the songs never loved me back.

Anyways,I’ve seen the performance of Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys at the Grammy’s, it was so great! I really really love it! I actually just saw theirย performanceย & Justin Timberlake’s and that’s it, hi hi. I didn’t finish it.

I saw this pic in weheartit.com, I love it!

perf

2 of my all time favorite artists! They sound amazing, I think they should do a lot of songs together ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, going to the real purpose of this entry, I’ll share some of our pics from the party and the after party event.

Ha ha, thanks for checking out! Take care everyone, xOxO

the birth of Joycessist

Hello again people ๐Ÿ˜€ this is my 3rd entry for the month, 3 entries in a row! What an achievement Jo Jo! Good job!

Well, as it says on my *about* page my mind is constantly wondering, most of the time I think about what to blog next, just to let you guys know I have like thousands of pictures in my laptop that I really really want to share. I just never had the “luxurious time” to do so.

I live like a vampire you know, I work at night and when I got home in the morning my mind is too tired to gather up “interesting” thoughts to put here in my blog – errr, I am not even sure if that sounds right, I might beย grammaticallyย wrong :).I just got home from work about 3 hours ago, I work for 9 hours a day and this week was a bit exhausting for me…talking to a hundred (or more) clients in just one week explaining complicated stuff…whew, sounds pretty tiring but I consider myself “VERY LUCKY” to be in this job. I wont be working there for almost 7 years if it wasn’t that good, so since I’ve been awake for a little over 12 hours – my brain’s kinda asking me to take a break…actually I am a little sleepy, but I don’t want to sleep yet ๐Ÿ™‚

I just have to do this. I’m sure you guys noticed my new header ? ๐Ÿ˜€

“joycessist” in the making, back in 2011 at Baguio City,PH.

Well I know this is a crazy idea, but I like it, so I think I am crazy ๐Ÿ™‚

Ever since my dear friend Rica lend me her camera I’ve been (somewhat) addicted to taking photos of myself, even got more addicted when I got my own camera. I am not beautiful, I know that but I am pretty cute ๐Ÿ˜€ (ha ha ha),oh my gee I might loose some readers (I hope not)

I love myself ๐Ÿ™‚

joycessist one-001

One day I was reminded of the word “narcissist” – extreme love for your self. I thought of adding the term to my name Joyce, so I got Joycessist – told you all,this is crazy. Then I came to realize that out of the thousand pictures in my laptop, about 60% of it is just me…myself…and I.

So today, I am making it official…. Joycessist is born! bwaahahaha!

Aside from my regular entries (blog challenges and tummy talks), Joycessist will be a regular entry from now on, wherein you’ll see me (who else?). You’ll probably have an idea of my “fashion sense” which is not that updated, so constructive criticism is very much appreciated.

~ my sister LB, took this picture and edited it as well. This was in 2011, I am actually in a bus stop, going to Baguio City.

~ In front of the Pink Sisters Cathedral in Baguio City, we just had lunch so my tummy is quite noticeable, hi hi.

crazy idea isn’t it? But this is it for now , you can expect more from this ambisyosang gal who loves herself so much.

But loving yourself isn’t bad at all, as long as you’re not harming other people and that you don’t cause trouble, I think it’s okay, as the saying goes, you gotta love yourself first before you can actually love others…

and I am not such a narcissist, I love myself enough to make people realize that I amย lovable, people think that I am such a snob, but I’m not.

So, okay, that’s it for today, I don’t think this made any sense but whatever! I am going to sleep now.Take care everyone!

Happy weekend! Kung Hei Fat Choi!

 

Tummy Talks 10

10th entry for Tummy Talks ๐Ÿ˜€ yay!

I’m actually running out of ideas hi hi, I have featured ( so far ) my favorite food and the foods I have tried for the 1st time. I think I should start eating somewhere else, wherein the food’s really interesting, hmmmm I will explore my options ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I will share with you my Mama’s latest dessert, but wait, you guys love dessert, right? I soooooo love dessert, I love eating something sweet after having ย a very huge meal ๐Ÿ™‚

My mama just tried this “dessert” quite recently, she had this during New Year’s Eve celebration ( I think ), I loved it from first bite ๐Ÿ˜€

I call it Jelly Fish ๐Ÿ™‚

SAM_4073-001

Does it look like a fish to you?

SAM_4065-001

That’s a very colorful jelly fish ๐Ÿ™‚

YUM! YUM! YUM!

 

Celebrating One Year Together

So here we are after one year. It was a year full of love and happiness, I can’t say that we’ve been through a lot, I don’t think we have any “major challenges or issue” in our relationship, all I know is that we are more in love with each other.

We’ve thought about our future already, we both wanted to grow old together. Whenever we would see old couple and they’re holding hands it makes us smile.

It is such a good feeling to be in love, I just hope that this will never end.

Like we’ll be in love for all eternity , like Bella and Edward – chos!

Anyway, here are some of our pictures from our “anniversary date”.

SAM_4084-001

On our way to Festival Mall, Alabang.

SAM_4090-001

Lunch at Greenwich, he wanted to try the new Glazed Chicken and I feel like eating Pizza, so we decided to just have our lunch there. The glazed chicken was soooooo delicious, it was so good that we finished it right away and forgot to take a picture of it ๐Ÿ˜€

SAM_4091-001

“funny face”, he does it all the time, well not really…but whenever we would take pictures together he would always have a “shot” wherein he’s doing a “funny face”.

SAM_4124-horz

Okay, so we’re both making funny faces. Here, we’re on our way to Southmall, few moments after watching Hansel & Gretel, have to buy something at Papemelroti. We thought of watching Life of Pi but the movie ticket is P300.00 (oh my gee!!!) that’s because it’s on 3D. it’s out of our budget so we decided to just go back to Festival Mall where the movie ticket is P170.00 :D. We don’t need to see itย in 3D.

SAM_4150-001

Life of Pi didn’t start until about 6:45 PM, we have about 45 minutes spare time so we went videoke-ing. One of our favorite “things to do together”.

SAM_4153-001

Our movie tickets, remembrance of our 1st year anniversary celebration ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it, thank you guys for checking out! Stay in love! Specially this month, it’s the Love Month!

Happy Valentines everyone! xOxO
