~ our room, since we only need this for sleeping purposes we thought of not getting a room in a hotel…this is actually a room being used by college students but since they were on holiday leave this room was available for “short time travelers” like us.

: Dinner , Grilled Hito (catfish), Fried Chicken, Inihaw na Liempo and Sinigang na Baboy.

~ After our sumptuous meal we thought of going to the bazaar, the entire road was closed filled with vendors selling various stuff, if I remember it right the bazaar starts from 9 PM to 2AM. Mimi and Zee did a photo op wearing those cute hats while we’re in the middle of the bazaar…but they bought something else ๐Ÿ˜€

~ Sunday Morning at Bagiuo City, we woke up a little early so we can visit as many tourist spots as we can, our room’s at the most top so this is actually our view – houses, roofs…

ย Our 1st stop : a walk at Burnham Park, I fell in love with those trees, I think they’re really beautiful.

~ Henna Dutdut (Tattoo), that’s the closest thing that I can get. I really wanted to have a real tattoo, but my skin is too sensitive, a tiny scratch will look pretty horrible in a few seconds… what more if I get a tattoo.SAM_3208

~ waaaah! It tickles ๐Ÿ˜€SAM_3209

~ You think it’s their first time to watch a girl getting a henna tattoo? They seem pretty amazed…

Snack Time @ SM Baguio City // my favorite potato chips twisted powdered with cheese – yum!SAM_3304

The mall was full of people, food court is jam packed! So we decided to just sit on the floor and enjoy our snacks.SAM_3319

A must go to place : Baguio Cathedral. From what I know this has been built for a very long time ago, the interior design can take you to back to history ๐Ÿ™‚SAM_3323

We also visited the Pink Sisters Cathedral which is also a very solemn/nice place, then we thought of going to the famous Haunted White House since it was just around the corner, but I saw this. Thought of taking a picture since I was enjoying this journey with my friends.

This is it for now, but there’s more ๐Ÿ™‚ I promise, ha ha.

But thanks for dropping by, got to sleep now, 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.

~ 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!
