Pinkville and the Green Award

Wednesday, 8 June, 2011

I love both pink and green so I’m more than happy to receive this award from Karen. At first I thought this is a duplicate award I’ve posted on Eldraliz. But it’s not, so thank you so much!

I won’t bug my friends this time since I’ve just tagged most of them on one of my recent posts – 25…15…10 Tags! Instead, I’ll just share this award to everyone. Pinkville readers, feel free to grab “The Versatile Blogger” award! If you can relate to my posts, bear with my fickle-mindedness and extreme pink addiction, love being spontaneous and appreciate wilderness, whoever you are, this blog award is for you!

Blog Award

Every blogger deserves this award!

Sorry to break the rules but I am having fun this way! Kidding! You definitely know why I’m doing this. Love doesn’t stop here anyway.

If you want to play more tagging games, check this out. And oh, don’t forget the coolest one-month challenge!

30-Day Challenge

25…15…10 Tags!

Tuesday, 31 May, 2011

First there was 25 Random Things About Me, then 15 Things to Love and Hate About Me and now here comes 10 More Tagged-Worthy Facts About Me

With the 40 things I’ve ALREADY shared about me, what more can I think of? Nathalie is driving me crazy… But I still thank her for this tag.

Guys, don’t blame me if there are duplicate entries here. So let me start…

1. I’m obsessed with nail polish and the smell of newly-opened bottle of OPI, Bobby, Revlon, etc makes me HIGH. Rugby is not my thing. But nail polish, yeah! Then my addiction levels up to nail arts. Loving KONAD!

2. I gave up on stilletos. I used to wear killer shoes and high-heeled sandals until I’ve read about BUNIONS. It freaked me out and I don’t want to have one. Now, the frequency of me wearing high-heels is 3-4 times a month.

3. Nailo inspired me to travel a lot. And I want to capture life in every angle with this DSLR.

4. I’m guilty of favoritism in terms of blogging. I have more that a dozen blogs yet only half of it gets updated more often. The rest are one to twice a month.

5. I never get tired watching Finding Nemo over and over again. Thanks Roch for the recommendation and CD-burn copy of it. My sisters and cousins love the movie, too!

6. I don’t answer phonecalls unless I was told that it’s a phone call. Weird? I have my own cellphone rules: TEXT before CALL. Hope that it won’t take its toll on me during emergencies. *knocks on wood*

Anime Girl Long Black Hair

Celebrate your crowning glory!

7. I wish my hair will grow faster! I’ve cut it above shoulder-length and I want to see it longer than this. My college friends used to say that I have virgin hair. All-natural, long, black and shiny. Then I started working in Manila and I learned how to devirginize my hair. I had it colored, relaxed, curled, straightened, trimmed, ironed, treated, and all other spa-mpering you could imagine. Now I’m a short-haired girl. And don’t forget the side-swept bangs.

8. I’ve got a new favorite bar drink – Malibu Coke. Smells like butterscotch and tastes like real honey. Credit goes to Kuya Hai for this tasty mix! I thought Strawberry Margarita is the sweetest and best drink I could ever have in Baguio!

9. I haven’t finished reading The Art of Seduction (by Robert Greene) yet and several other books at home. Not to mention that there are lots of e-books sitting on my inbox. Simply translates, I have no time to read books these days. Talk about being busy!

10. I’ve just got a magical tattoo and I’m so happy and proud about it! “No pain, No gain” does not hold true for this session because it was almost painless.

While working on this post, I had a glimpse of TV5’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition commercial. Home makeover is as popular as manufactured homes in US.

It’s tagging time! Know the rules first:

Each tagged person must post ten things about themselves.
You have to choose and tag ten people.
Go to their blogs and tell them you tagged them.
No tag backs.
Have Fun.


Girls, please leave the URL of your tagged post so that I can visit you back and know you more!

Day 28: A Year After…

Wednesday, 29 September, 2010


Liz 2009


Can’t find any 2009 solo pic, most are in groups or with bf! Hehe. Plus, there are only few stored images of me from last year compared to this year. Hmmm. Seems that there are less significant events by then… Anyway, does the above image look familiar? Of course, that was taken last October 2009… sleepy during the reception. Related photos can be found here: Day 20: Happy Life, Ever After!


Liz 2010

Getting better...

Nailo’s shot @ Trend Micro, taken during one of our team meetings last August.

No major major changes! But if it’s 3 years ago, I have a lot to share… just like what I’ve posted before: Better or Worse?

Liz just became stronger and better person. Errr…sometimes meaner! And now a bully?! Haha. That’s not true. Some people misinterpret my remarks and loudness. Argh!

Think Positive

There are so many reasons to be inspired!

And yeah, I know myself even more in such a way that the daily challenges help me recall how I used to be and foresee how I’ll be in the near future! It’s nice to look back at the silly things I’ve done and I am so proud to have well-defined goals in life! I am so inspired! So eager to finish this challenge!

Day 25: From A Star Scout To A Certified Girl Scout

Monday, 27 September, 2010

I can be usually spotted with a big bag on me. Yup, even during my elementary up to college days. I went to a public school so we did not have lockers yet by then and we had to carry all of our books every day. Maybe that’s why I did not grow much. Lol. Petite’s lovely! And during college, I used to carry different notebooks instead of a single binder. Plus, I want plenty room for my things. First aid kit took place the supposed to be space for kikay kit then. Hmmm. I’m the Doraemon of my times, a certified girl scout!

Day 24: Dearest Mom And Dad

Sunday, 26 September, 2010

I’m confused whether or not this is the right time to confess… I’ve been keeping a lot of things from my parents. If I am to write them a letter… it will be on a piece of paper and in the native language. And then I’ll give it to them personally. For now, let me post what my heart tells me…

Happy Family_Mom_Dad

The joys of parents are secret, and so are their griefs and fears.

I thank you so much for all the love and care you’ve showered us since we’re born until now. Thanks for preparing my meal three times a day. Thanks for doing the laundry instead of me doing it. Thanks for fixing our bed early in the morning. Thanks for buying us our school needs. Thank you for being the best mother in every sense of the word.

I just hope you can be stronger. I love the faith I see in you. Be more positive, always!

Thanks for being my first teacher. Even if other people always say that I inherited my intelligence from your mom, I believe that it’s your genes that made me this smart. Thanks for working hard for my tuition fees and other school projects. Thanks for trusting me that much and always praying for my success. I am lucky you’re not that strict. Even if my love for you and mom are equal, I still prefer the way you raise and discipline us. Thanks for all the support when I made the toughest decision in my life.

To both of you, thank you for being proud of me… I am sorry that I can’t be with you all the time. I’ll be always here for you. Again, my never-ending thank you. Love you so much.

I’m missing them real bad… 🙁
Good thing I’ll be visiting my hometown this weekend with my sister. Time to be with them again!

Day 23: Love It Whipped!

Sunday, 26 September, 2010

I’m about to say coffee, but that’s too general. Besides, I can always get hold of a cup of coffee at home or here at the office. Hmmm. I’m actually craving for Java Chip Frappe!

Give in to your creamy temptation!

But wait, there’s more! I can’t remember when’s the last time I’ve enjoyed Jollibee’s Rocky Road Brownie Sundae so I’m including it on my must-taste list for this week! 🙂
