my weekend gimik

my high school friends went to a bar in Malate. we were supposed to watch another friend and his band play. their gig was scheduled at 10pm. we agreed to meet up at around 8:00pm. but due to our constantly late friend (peace choi!), we left our meeting place a little over 9:30pm already. we arrived at the bar at around 10:15 and the band was already getting ready to play. another unfortunate event came up. the bar was not that big and can only accomodate a number of people. and since we were late, all the seats were taken. we decided to transfer to another bar (hey, we were able to hear our friend play, anyway!).

we were contemplating on where to go. we are not so familiar with the bars all over malate. we went there just once, at Ratsky. it's a good thing one friend of mine was quite familiar with the place since she, most of the time, spent her free time there during her college days. we went to several bars. we've decided to go to Common Ground bar, but a guy friend ranted because they wouldnt allow him to bring his cap inside! bad hair day choi! so we walked and walked until we reached ratsky. True Faith was playing that night (the same band who played when we went there one cold december). we decided against it later on because of their not so affordable entrance fee. 200 pesos each, non-consummable. :( so we went back to common ground bar, and our guy friend consented to leave his cap behind.

it was a nice bar, though they did not have any live bands playing (would've preferred bands over plain music). but since majority were in favor of going inside, i just followed them. the music consists mainly of house/trance and rnb music. i was not having much fun. not because i don't like the bar (though it was one of the reasons, but it doesn't matter anyway), but because i still have work the following day!! haha! imagine staying up until morning and then going to work the next day! suicide!!!

i thought of leaving earlier than them, around 1 or 2am. but of course just like any other gimiks with my friends, i was not able to go home earlier. my boyfriend and i arrived at his house around 4:30am. i slept at around 5am and woke up at 7:30am. i was still extremely sleepy but i couldn't afford not to got to work (i'm the team lead of the group, by the way).
to make the story short, i went to work. was sleepy all day! i went home at around 5pm. i slept at 6pm and woke up the next day at 9am!! haha!

i had a nice time, though not that great. my boyfriend kept dancing and if not for my dilemma of going home or not, i would've enjoyed the gimik more.

hopefully next gimik will be more favorable for me and my schedule. :)

wanting something you can't get --- yet.

have you ever been in a situation wherein you wanted something so badly but the odds say you can't get it yet? i am currently in that situation. i badly want something to happen to me right now, but it seems as if it i am not yet destined to experience it. not yet... sometimes i find myself thinking why some people get what they want at exactly the same time they want it, and some are just unfortunate not to get what they want. life is indeed full of surprises. you cannot have the best of both worlds. i am not complaining, i don't have a cursed life. i appreciate whatever it is that's happening to me right now. it's just that there is something that i am wanting badly above anything else, but is still not happening to me...maybe it's not yet time. i just hope i still have the patience to wait for my time to come.

i am still holding on, hoping that one day things will go my way. i am waiting, hoping and praying...God give me strength...

Harry Potter and his magical world

i love harry potter. i'm a self-confessed harry potter addict. i have read the 7 books, watched the 5 movies and still hoping there are more books to come! i am currently RE-reading book 7 (have finished re-reding books 5 and 6, and i plan to re-read books 1-4). i simply adore jk rowling. her writing prowess is really beyond measure.

i was not a potter fan at first, and i didn't even see myself reading those books (that was a few years back). but when i started reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, i knew id be hooked!

my favorite book in the series is the 6th book. don't get me wrong, i know this is the book in which dumbledore died...i hated it for that reason, but apart from that, the book is simply amazing! the fight scenes, snape's identity, harry and ginny, ron and hermione, etc! i just loved it!

i thought book 7 will be my favorite but i was a little disappointed with the ending and the epilogue. i expected more from jk. it would have been better if she wrote something about what happened to all the other characters in the book like, luna lovegood, cho chang, etc. and it would have been proper if they did a sort of "funeral" for the people who died in battle.

anyways, i still love jk. and i am truly looking forward to more books from her!
