I'm Not a Kitchen Goddess



And so my uncle left me with the ginormous task of frying the fish that unfortunate Wednesday evening and I couldn't help but tremble at the inevitable failure that's about to happen.

You see, I'm practically useless in the kitchen. The only thing I'm good at is boiling water and in fact I'm so good at it I call myself a virtuoso. For those who don't know how it's done, it's simple really. You just plug in the wire and press the red button at the back of the water dispenser and then wait 'til the red light shifts to green.

Martha-esque character aside, I think it's rather sad that I wouldn't be able to cook lamb chops or some exotic Italian pasta to that one special guy. I do have thoughts of serving him dinner on our first ever anniversary, but I guess that's why fastfood chains are popular. Now if only pizza at Bianni's was 99% cheaper.

Anyway, back to the fish, it turned out to be medium rare on one side and charred on the other. Good thing there was a birthday party otherwise we'd be eating unpalatable seafood.

Tell Me How to End This




Slowly you breathe the gentle lust
to my being and I became a vixen in your love bed.
Sprinkle me with euphoria
and tousle my hair on the satin pillows.
Kiss me 'til I'm drunk that I may never be sober.
Let your fingers tiptoe on my skin,
that silent passion excites me. 
Sway me softly.
Dance me like a gypsy.
Waltz me to the endless lullabies of your skin and stars
And let my sweat be the sweetness of your mornings.
But gently wake me up.
Wake me up from this daydream.

The Boy Next Door Next to the Other Boy Next Door



It's semestral break season and that could only mean one thing to the little children of this town, it's time to head home. Gone are the days of cramming late at night just to pass that Accounting exam. Gone are the days of lustfully dreaming of sun-filled free days where schools and projects don't exist, because finally, here they are wrapped in neat little packages that promise fun and pleasure.

And so, the little boy from this little town is once again filled with excitement because once these days begin, it means that the neighbor-crushie aka K will be home. K is Rei's kababata that he's been crushing on as far as he could remember. He lives next door next to the other house next door and he remembers that he had been there a lot of times.

K studied in Cebu for college but K and Rei were never really friends even before that. When K was in high school, he studied in the city. But Rei, being the poor guy that he is, stayed in the province where he spent his academic years in the local academe. Rei thinks that their geographical locations and sexual differences were the reason why their friendship crumbled like the choco chip cookie he's eating now.

When K returned home last August for their town fiesta, everyone was in awe at how buff he had become. He was already hot before but this time he's scorching. Rei could only drool-chos and look from afar, because, well, they aren't really friends anymore.

K became a dream that Rei wanted to have. But dreams require mushy marshmallows and Rei believes he can't afford mushy marshmallows. He can only sigh and look at that distant star K has become.

K by the way is N's cousin.

Love On Top




And so today I officially begin my sembreak. Wohooo! Haha. I'm kicking things up with this awesome new Beyonce video that she sang at the VMA's where she announced that she's finally preggers. Promise to have a real post tomorrow or by Thursday.

Much l♥ve,

Rei

Packing my Baggage



I watched his placid expression unnoticing me as he boarded the jeep. It's been days since we last saw each other and I could hear my heart flutter once again to that lullaby whenever he's around.

The song is pain that injects tiny needles on my chest. The song is a haunting melody that makes me want to shake the superificial pixiedust off.

I closed a lid and looked the opposite direction.

Sometimes I like men unseen.

Dear Dia-Blog

Sunday

Had a blast at Mikas' (Nikko's baby bro) partey partey at Valdia Gardens. The lunch was great especially the chicken and of course, Tita's spaghetti. The best part was when we hit the pool and did all the crazy jump shots. 

That's me on the rightmost doing my "crouching tiger hidden dragon" pose.

I also sang "Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok ko" at our Humanities teacher's house and I am relieved that the world did not end when I belted a tune. Praise be to God. 

Had an awesome awesome Sunday. XD

Wednesday

Yesterday was stress day for me. Duty sa JPIA from 2:30-5:00 pm collecting fines and explaining to people what semestral dues were and why they have to pay them and deny discounts and waaaaaaaaaaaaaah! At the end of the day, there was a cash deficit worth 105.00 pesos and I can only hope that it wasn't my fault. 

Exams Financial Accounting Volume III today. 'Twas good that only the first two parts of SME were included because the third part was just to difficult to swallow. 

No permit yet. Hoping to settle Sir Rubin's signature by 11am and finally have my permit by afternoon. Also, will proctor for Accounting 1 and Financial Accounting Volume I later.

Friday

My Business Math 1 and Natural Science 1 exams yesterday were alright. Got a perfect score on Religion and Auditing Theory wasn't as bad as they said. Note to self, don't listen to other people's perception. It's usually wrong. Chos. 

Law 1 was fun. It was a group exam because I am exempted from the final examinations and my colleagues and I were able to answer the questions. 

Got home. Ate dinner. Washed dishes. And then poof! I blog. 

Much l♥ve,

Rei

Notice the oxfords? I love that she's dancing yet still protecting her baby. Kudos to B. ♥

Fashion Folio: Spring Fever

Fashion has been and will always be my religion, and so, to pay homage to the gods of stitching and weaving, I present to you a weekly series that feature my undying love for the most commercial of all the arts. 

I am in anticipation of Spring 2012's print and color explosion but before the actual detonation occurs, I'll share to you my favorite Spring-Summer 2012 looks. Bang! (Insert confetti and fireworks). 

D&G
Antonio Marras
Christian Dior
D-squared
Chloe
Lanvin

Oscar de la Renta
Valentino
Elie Saab
Dolce and Gabbana
Gucci
Emilio Pucci

It was very difficult for me to select these looks and I'm disappointed I couldn't upload the McQueen dress I'm dying to wear, and I feel sad I couldn't include everything I loved because I don't want to "over-lengthen" this blog post.

Full credit goes to www.style.com for the photos. 

Much l♥ve,

The Lady Is A Tramp

Tony Benett + Lady Gaga = ♥


A beautiful rework of a classic song. 

And I am such a gaga for musical-esque types.

In Memorium

The interwebs told me of a man's death. A legend in the business of creating state of the art gadgets and a pioneer in the technological world met the Creator today. Steve Jobs, you will be remembered.

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. 
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

 -Steve Jobs

It's a Cancer


Hypocrisy I think has become a personal character. Here I am, blabbering about neck pains and promising my Mom to stay away from computers at least 'til Friday but I realized that I just couldn't do it. I am a hypocrite. And I need help. I hope they have chemotherapy for hypocrites. I seriously do not want to die with this disease.

Chasing Pavements


I'm gonna take a break. My mother, because of my aching neck, encouraged me to do so. She told me that if I love myself, If I pity myself, I should definitely stay away from the computer. And I do love myself and I pity my body for not being able to take up the stress I have in school and the radiation these computers have. 

And so I must. Because if I die, then I wouldn't be able to blog anymore. And I do love this blog. I do love the friends that I have made. And I love the stories I read. And the things that I learn. And the experience. And the fact that I can express myself. 

And so, to be able to continue this venture, I will limit myself. A day a week. An hour. A few minutes. Anything to make myself better and to make my mom happy. I hate seeing her sad. I hate it when she's worried. 

Moderation. Anything in excess is bad. 

And so, until I my body, particularly my neck, can take it, I bid you adieu.

And about the title, I just happen to fall in love with Adele. Please listen to her song in this link.
