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!

unforgettable road trip

Hey guys! Though it took some time for me to do this as promised here are some of our pictures from Tagaytayย :)ย , we left Manila right after our Thanksgiving Party , about 12midnight-ishโ€ฆhappy road tripping with my friends from work. Totally unforgettable!


Our 1st stop, we were looking for a cool place where we can hang out…spend the night or wait for the sunrise…talk…laugh…talk more…maybe with a few beers and junk foods but this place is not good…too much noise is not allowed…and how are we suppose to enjoy the moment without being loud?


At 711, Mimi made a wish to Santa Claus.


made of Capiz shells, very nice!

Honesty Challenge : Day 6

I have been such a bad blogger for a while, geeez I am so sorry. I haven’t been able to read your entries, I saw all the updates and checked on the notifications just now, I wanted to read so many stuff but I’ve been so busy preppin for the holidays…here at home and at work.

Proud to say that for 2 consecutive years our team won for the Christmas Carol Contest ๐Ÿ™‚ as much as I would like to share what we did, I cannot. We were not allowed to take videos of our performance, it was really really great! Everybody did well – I guess we’re better ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, let’s move on to honesty challenge.ย 

I will have more updates soon!

Day 6: Do you smoke weed regularly?ย 

NO, never tried and will never ever try ๐Ÿ™‚
