Jan's Coffee Break Ver. 1.24

My first time to join Jan's Coffee Break sessions.

How has the internet made wonders to your social life?
  • Friendster - i was able to get in touch with friends from grade school, high school, college, ex-officemates, friends from other schools that I've met before and friends from yahoo groups that I belong to. I can also check who's "stalking" me through the profile views option. Haha!
  • Multiply - Here, I am updated with what's going on with my friends through their picture. This is where I can upload hundreds and hundreds of pictures of parties like birthdays, showers (bridal and baby), weddings, travels, night-outs, etc. And just recently, I found this site to host a number of specialty shops.
  • Yahoo Messenger - i can chat with: friends in San Diego, New York and Canada, cousins in LA and Netherlands, my sister in QC, another friend whose office is just a few buildings away from mine and sometimes my mom when I catch her online which is just once every six months!
  • Google - search for information on anything under the sun. This is especially helpful on our TTC journey
  • Sites of my favorite brands to check their latest wares and make myself drool on them
  • Blogging, Reading other people's blogs

Sad sad news

I got a text message from my friend yesterday that one of our batchmates in highschool passed away last Saturday evening. I was really in shock, confused and wondered why and what happened to her.

To Ansky, I will always remember all your funny antics. You will always be in my prayers..

Are you deeply in love with your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend? If you do, let's try how well you remember the moment of your life with him. But before you put yourself in the hot seat please read the rules of this tag first.

Here are the questions. Be honest with your answers.

1. How did you meet your husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend?
- In a soiree during 3rd year highschool (Ateneo 3-F and Assumption 3-1 - our sections). His friend (from the other section whom I met first) was the one courting and he told him to make "bantay". He got my number and started calling me up and he learned that I didn't like his friend so he took the opportunity of making ligaw na. Yun, nag away na sila ng friend nya! (Haba ng hair ko noh?! Haha)
2. Where did you go on your first date?
- Robinson's Galleria to watch a movie
3. When was your first intimate kiss?

7. What is he/she like if he/she is mad?
- Like the Hulk! Haha! Seriously, I try to get out of his way when he's mad.
8. What are the things he/she did you thought is the most romantic thing he'd/she'd ever done?
- As I said in one of my posts, he's not the romantic type so the little things that I don't expect from him is really romantic for me.
9. Describe how he/you proposed to you.
- Hindi nga sya romantic, he just casually told me one night while we were talking on the phone "let's get married na. Book the church and hotel tomorrow". He didn't even ask if I wanted to marry him! Haha! He gave the ring a week after when he picked me up in the office to have dinner while we were cruising along Ayala Ave. I found out from friends that he was searching for a ring for about a month.
10. I'll just copy Pat's question: What are his quirks that you have to put up with?
- He's not so orderly with things, except when it comes to his car. I always have to arrange, fix and pick up clothes that are scattered around the room. The bathroom is a different story! -very typical of a guy..

Sex and the City

It was a movie night gimik with friends last Saturday night to watch SATC at Trinoma. As expected, Paolo wasn't too excited about the movie since this is totally a chick flick. He's not fond of the cast and finds Carrie Bradshaw too maarte and feeling maganda. But since he knows that I'm a fan and have watched and followed the entire series, he gave in. In return, I offered to pay for our tickets (we got the VIP seats with Lazyboy chairs. Syempre dapat super comfy kami! Haha!).

After hearing the anticipated 5PM mass, we headed off to Trinoma. We had an early dinner at Abe, which I really didn't enjoy, had chit chat with friends and went to the movie house to catch the 8PM screening.

Here's a list of what I like most about the movie:

1. The clothes. Who wouldn't love all those couture brands that the cast wore in the movie?
2. The Shoes. All those Manolos and Jimmy Choos will make every girl drool.
3. THE BAGS. LV, Prada, Gucci, Hermes. Need I say more?
4. Carrie's wedding gown by Vivienne Westwood. Its so couture. Very sophisticated.
5. Carrie's closet in their 5th Avenue apartment. I was in awe. Speechless. It was paradise. Paolo told me that he'll build a better one for me when we start building our own house (hopefully) soon.

I was told by friends that I'm gonna cry at least twice. I didn't. It was more of just an "Awww" moment especially on Charlotte's pregnancy (as you all know, we've been trying to get pregnant since our wedding night) I got teary eyed though with Big's email to Carrie: "I know I screwed up but I will love you forever" - really struck me. Those who know my story will understand why. Haha!

Then, we capped off the evening with a snack at Itallianni's to do some more catching up.
