[[SUPER LATE POST]]
For our first activity of the month is a visit to the Silahis ng Kalusugan Christmas Party in PGH in our best beloved characters and superheroes. What a day! I came in a few minutes late as Princess Anna, but once I entered the stage, the smiles and shouts of children just totally filled my heart! *3* They kept asking about Elsa too, but I had to tell them she had royal duties back in Arendelle hehe!
The kids were the most adorable bunch ever, excited when receiving their personal gifts and giving the warmest hugs that even Olaf would love! Oh I even had a female Sven! My favorite part was helping out my youth team (woohoo team Uno) in the pop quiz game & when the event was over, this sweet little girl gave me a beaded strawberry keychain awww! The others made sure they all gave their handmade "Thank you" cards as well, it was so precious! *huggles*
Next my part-time job also had its last holiday events in the BJJ International Open in SM MOA. It was a very chillax day, windy and just a few players. But I needed the break from weekday classes everyday & seeing the every-flavored-hot-bods was worth it!
Also my highlight of the day was meeting mixed-martial artist and VP of One Champion, Rich "Ace" Franklin in person.. even if I don't really know him nor am I a fan. He was really awesome though and I'm just crazy like that oho ho ho~!
Over the next weekend I was invited by a friend to watch her dance recital at the Teatro Flamenco. I'm telling you this night did not disappoint! Not even the horrible traffik (what's with EDSA these days seriously), the 3-4 blocks I had to walk because cars weren't moving, not to mention the 3" heels I was wearing WHILE walking.. yes definitely was worth it just to see this amazing show! Thanks again to dearest @ for the invite! Seniora yah owned it like stomp stomp stomp! <3 <3 <3 And much hugs to Zaza Rodriguez
for suggesting our "kinky" choice of restaurant for dinner! Imma try 'em balls & milkshake next time nyaha~!
Now there are probably two last cosplay conventions this month, one is the December Toy Fair. I decided to wear Honey Lemon again, just so I could try to give justice to the selfie-queen & take photos at the same time!
) I came in the afternoon and bumped into some old friends I spotted first. *hugs you guys* Thanks so much for the company! Also glad I was able to do photo-ops with some photographer friends, coz I wasn't able to get decent photos of this cosplay the first time I wore her for an event.. so YAY!
After my toy hunt last Saturday, I headed next to the real party where my dear friend mkMorreaux
was celebrating her advanced birthday party of sorts!
I have to say.. it's been a while since I've been to an adult party that still had a theme or motif to follow. She knew very well how much I love dressing up.. and dress up I did indeed nyaha! Her theme was "Birds of Paradise" and surprisinglyenough a lot of us came in a bird-inspired ensemble. Except I think I was the only actual flower
) Her centerpieces on the table even had handmade feather notes as her souvenir tokens, which we all enjoyed placing on our heads like little indians. Fancy party is fancy!
So since this is advanced, I just want to thank you dearie for the invite & again a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Had loads of fun, even when I uhhh.. might have left another vunerable "drunk kitty on the loose" somewhere~! <3 *huggles* <3
It’s one party after another. Next was our company's year ender party! I gotta say, that was actually fun! #NotAwkwardAtAll If you ever saw my stat about "hello to meeting people whom I've only met online" is because this is the first time I’m seeing them in person. The people are fellow teachers (new like me & old veterans), my mentors and trainers, lesson support and of course the admins of our company. We have always been communicating online for the past weeks (bcoz I'm home-based) and now I could finally shake hands with them nyaha!! )
So for those who didn't know, I have been an online English teacher for nearly a month now in this company and I can say that it's been the most enjoyable work yet! To be able to teach and share the English language is amazing~!
Also I remembered that the Grimtales comic was released during this month of 2012, so why not celebrate it as well? Aside from it's dark-cartoons-gone-bad theme, it also revolves around the meaning of love and friendship. This is one of my favorite photos captured by crossfireblitz
of my Minimandy and my friend KuroSeirei
Grim Jr. scenes~!
Oh did I also mention that my parents and other brother flew back here for the holidays? We’ve been spending a lot of family-time together esp with our soon-to-be member. So glad to finally be 95% complete for the holidays! *hugs* We paid out respects first to our dearly departed in the cemetery, then watched together The Force Awakens!! OHMAYGAWD I WILL JUST SPAZZ INTERNALLY because.. hhhnnnggghhh!! ;A;
I needed a pick-up so bad that I decided to go toy-shopping *toinks* So woohoo I finally get my hands on Crescent (look twin blue-greentear
) and was also lucky enough to find my own Clawdeen Wolf vinyl figure (ate dukesawolf
It was also Elsa’s birthday! I made this birthday greeting where Olaf helped me with the card and told him to write.. uhhh Hardy Bits Hay Apple? Wait what?? O.o OLAAAAAAAAAF~!!
Anyways, I’m mostly in charge of decorating the house every year & I try to make our Christmas as interesting as possible. This year the theme is Sweets for my Sweets! Maybe I'm blaming my friends for always getting me high with it but yay for cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, macaroons, donuts and ice cream!! Even our Santa has his own cupcake nyaha!
May you all take this moment to spend time with your loved ones, or dearly beloveds, or even just giving yourself the well deserved time you always needed. Because the spirit of Christmas is not about receiving gifts, it's about giving back. *huggles* HAPPY CHRISTMAS~!
More family time after, like this lunch hour at TGIFridays Greenbelt 3
with two of our families Del Rosario-Vitug in one place for the first time. It was amazing to finally get everybody together before the BIG moment happens next year! Super excited for it already~!
Aside from that, I also spent my holidays with these lovely ladies again! We decided to have a small year-ender thing coz we just had to have more chikka-moments before 2016. Thanks sooo much for the company girls! It's always crazy fun hanging out with you.. awesome food, awesome place & gawd our topics just keep getting out of hand, even our only waitress was entertained!
) Here's to the New Year~! *slams mug* ANOTHER!!
The last convention I attended this year is the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special. So after lunch with the Team South Girls, I dropped by the event to meet with customers for my giveaway and also bumped into some friends whom I've not seen in the longest time esp my sweet sissy DinAmplified
and dearest Harley Wayne
! Also great to finally see Skeletal Valkyrie
's Supergirl too~!! :3 *rubs cheeks with so much love*
I also went as casual Pinkie Pie of My Little Pony, to test run the wig I just styled the night before. Also because senpai dukesawolf
was having a booth for the first time and was cosplaying as casual Rarity (wahhh tnx so much for the gifts btw), together with ACiD
so I just had to go Pinkieprise and support them~! *huggles* What a way to end the year indeed, looking forward to the next one already!
Buuut the gala wasn't over yet! After Ozine, I had to go straight to my sister-to-be's bridal shower that same night. Good thing it was just a jeep ride away and I made it in the last hour to spend time with her (who looked absolutely adorable in her princess veil by the way) and met all the other pretty singles. *waves*
It was really fun meeting you ladies, thank you for the "tasty souvenirs" and the flower crown!
See you all again on the BIG day~!
And finally, better late than never.. the last day of the month celebrates RIZAL DAY!! Here's a photo from our National Heroes shoot last month of my Josie Rizal cosplay and my friend Jay Ocampo cosplaying as the one and only Jose Rizal himself. Who will triumph? FAITO~!!
Aaaand that’s it! See you in 2016~!
