052005 :]

so thursday was me and aj's 5 year anniversary. we semi spontaniously went to the beach adn had vietnamese food after. [[pretty mucha perfect date :] well, anything involving the beach and good food is a perfect date for me ahah]]
we're probably gonna have another semi spontanous trip to the beach later on this week with our other couple friends cuz all our finals will pretty much be done. i'm looking forward to it.

[[that's me on the left and aj on the right. just so you know ;] haha]]
after we left the beach i realized that i should've taken a que from the clothes horse and made a gif of this lovely picture but hopefully we'll be able to take another like this later on this week.

we had to stay on the dog beach side of the beach cuz the human side had some currents going on and the dog side kind of had this little trench going around it with some kiddie pools along the way. [[the water was a lot warmer there than the actual ocean itself [[o yea, did i tell you this was like, 8-9ish in the morning when we went??]] and we ended up warming up there after we had enough of taking a beating from the ocean.]]

also tried to use aj as a human tripod to take some quick outfit shots [[cuz i think i dressed up pretty good for the occasion yea?]] but it didn't really go as well as i'd planned :/

there were a bunch of little half shells of itty bitty clams in the sand as well as the occasional mussel shell. there were also tiny crabs digging into the sand when the waves came in and aj and i tried to dig after them with our feet but i got creeped out when i dug up a lot and ran away. lol

i love my boyfriend x]

nom nom nom vietnamese egg rolls :9 i love these and get these all the time.

052005 :] my favorite holiday

i love my...

DOGS!!! :D
my cute little dogs frisco and new puppy zorro :]
yea... sorry this picture isn't that clear... i have better ones i promise :]
this is zorro. i got him a couple of days before thanksgiving last year. so he's about 7 months right now. we got him from one of my mom's friends whose dogs just had puppies. he was a really itty bitty thing when we first got him. i could hold his whole body in both in my hands with not much difficulty and could easily smuggle him in my purse.
originally we thought he was a chihuahua puppy but over the months that belief was totally destroyed. haha
he used to make our dog frisco look like a great dane and frisco isn't really that tall either! but now zorro is pretty much taller than frisco and my mom is betting me that he'll grow up to be a much bigger dog. [[i highly doubt that]]
he kind of has separation anxiety and misses me terribly when i'm gone and he follows me absolutely everywhere when i'm home it's the exact opposite of frisco who is totally independant. zorro sleeps in my bed with me and usually like to sleep next to me.
i kind of think he's also socially awkward cuz it's terriblely shy of new people and animals but i'm trying to socailize him more so he won't be crazy when he gets older. lol

of all the dogs that i've had, i'll have to say that this guy is pretty much my favorite :]
cuz mostly my other dogs were outside dogs and weren't really allowed inside and regretfully never really spent that much time with them :(
we first got frisco from my cousin cuz he used to belong to her. she kind of got him as a graduation present after high school and she was supposed to go to a college in san francisco and that's where frisco's name came from. she also got him from one of her friends as well.
we was the HYPEREST puppy i've ever seen and he was an absolutely adorable puppy :]
he was like a kangaroo born in a dog's body he could jump so high!
he used to be an outside dog when i got him and i didn't really spend that much time with him either. he used to hang out with another older dog named lacey, but when she died he kind of made his way inside the house somehow.
he's pretty smart and i've taught him a number of tricks. i'm really proud of him cuz of how loyal and smart he is :] he's also really pretty too cuz of his shiny fur [[gee i hope i don't sound like a crazy dog lady o___o]]
i know before i got zorro i was trying to teach him how to get stuff from the cabinet downstairs and bring it to me haha. we were pretty close too! he catches on pretty fast ;]
he's spent the most time with me cuz i'm usually stuck at home a lot so we usually just chill around the house and teach him tricks
haha "z for zorro!!"

so i really hope i didn't sound like a crazy dog lady. [[i spend a lot of time with my dogs cuz i'm stuck at home like i said so they keep me company :] ]] and i think next week, i'll think of something better to blog about on here. lol

shoppin my closet till i drop

shopped my closet this weekend before i went to my aunt's gold party [[they were fundrasing for the susan g coleman foundation by selling their old gold/silver jewelry]] and while i was waiting for my mom to wake up from her well deserved nap

[[jacket-f21, tank-calvin klein, necklace-birthday gift, vintage belt, shorts-massimo, studded flats-dollhouse]]

i ended up wearing this to my aunt's gold party except i hid under my photo club sweater like this:

yea...only i didn't wear the tights cuz it was pretty warm to be wearing tights. plus this is my favorite hoodie. :] imiss photo club.. :{ a lot of my friends were in there i even customized the back where it listed all the members in the club with little hearts next to my friends names :] [[though i'm not done yet... -,-]]

[[shirt-oneil, skirt-cotton on, necklace-brithday gift, polka dot tights-target, studded flats-dollhouse]]

another outfit with my fireworks skirt. you know i've really grown quite fond of this skirt. it's really fun to wear and surprisingly versitile what with it's multi-colored-ness :] i also love how it poses a challenge to me whenever i decide to wear it.
do i wear it with a plain tee? mix some prints? or a band tee? [[i should probably do a remix entry for this skirt. that should be fun :D ]]
i posted up the last outfit i made with it on my chictopia and i got some pretty positive comments and thought i'd venture into my closet again and see what i come up with. thankfully people think it's a win so i'm glad! :D [[no fshion faux pas for me! those days are o-ver!]]

[[top-hand me down, everything else-see above]]
i had gotten this top from my cousin eliza [[whom i call ate liza [[ate-pronounced "ah-teh" which means big sister in filipino]] i think, about a month ago so i was trying to figure out how or what i was gonna wear it with. i was also experimenting with the tights and shorts trend that's been going around lately and i thought these looked pretty good together. right?
but at the moment, i'm still not as confident as i hoped to wear this out. plus i'm also at odds end with the sleeves/straps of this thing. i don't know whether or not they're supposed to hang around my shoulders or not. it's kinda confusing :/

[[tee-hot topic]]
also let out my inner nerd by dressing up in my last halloween costume. A HARRY POTTER NERD! :D i love you harry x]
i wanted to take it with my favorite harry potter book but i really just couldn't decide >___< i love them all! :D haha so i jsut grabbed the one that was closest to

[[skull ring-adventureland in disneyland, watch ring-my mom's,bag-gift]]
my favorite rings. :]
i wore these yesterday. come to think of it, i was kind of in a white and gold feeling that day. i also had a gold necklace too.
my mom brought some of her old gold jewelry to sell [[ended up getting $120 to donate so i'm glad :) ]]
the watch ring is one of my favortie pieces from my mom's small jewelry collection. it was given to her from her friend percy and was originally meant as a necklace with the chain laced through it but i have no idea where it went now. either way, i'm pretty glad that i saved it from being sold cuz i've always loved it since i was little and now i get to call it my own :] the watch itself doesn't work anymore[[i think it might be the battery. i think i might get it fixed someday so it'll be more than a ring]]

i've actually gotten some pretty good ideas for posts here like:
-spam masubi how to [[maybe vid? idk]] for my friend janel or anybody else who wants to learn
-"i love my..."post where i'll talk about, well, something that i love. either it be a clothing item, my dog, person, etc.
-flashback photos cuz i feel like jumping on the band wagon with the other bloggers.

so....stay tuned! ;D

cute noms :3

i'm kinda weird when it comes to my hobbies cuz my interests change quite frequently. like right now, i'm really getting into baking.
my two older cousins, eliza and michelle used to bake and make cakes all the time when they used to live in my aunties house, but they still do that at their homes after they moved out, but i still miss it :[
a month ago i finally bought myself a wisk and icing spatula [[cuz mixing batter with a fork is just totally lame >:| and you just can't cover enough of the cake or whatever with a butter knife =____=; ]] at ross and i used it to bake my birthday cake a couple of weeks ago. haha isn't that kinda sad that i had to bake my own birthday cake?? [[i'm super lactose intolerant so it's kind of too much of a hassle to order one. plus it's a lot more fun to personalize it yourself :] ]]

[[p.s. the chocolate icing i used didn't have any milk in it and it's one of those popular mass produced ones!! scooore! haha]]

i also watch ace of cakes whenever i can and if it's a new episode. i mean, cmon! how can you not get inspired by that show?? shows like that just make you want to go out and start your own bakery! :D all they're fondante stuff looks super cute too :] also whenever i watch it, i'm also surprised how much math and sci actually go into some of they're cakes. it's pretty crazy. like some of their architechture cakes. whoa!

i also saw this one episode of las chicas project where they went to a vegan bakery called bleeding hearts bakery and there was this one cake ABSOLUTELY covered in sprinkles and i've been thinking about it everytime i hit up the cake aisle when i go grocery shopping. i can't find a picture of it online unfortunatly but if you guys know what i'm talking about. then, yeeeeeaaa ;D
i've been itching to get some proper cake pans for a while now. nothing fancy, just your basic circle and square ones. also a proper cupcake pan. i bought a silicone one a long time ago, biiiig mistake. the cupcakes stuck to it and ended up looking stupid that even my dad didn't want to eat it. [[that's when you know it's wack ahah]]
right now i'm thnking about having a another girl day with my friends jan rochelle and just be all 50's and girly and bake cakes and cupcakes [[anyone having a bake sale?? ;D haha]]
i saw a blog on my xanga about some really creative cakes and it's just making me even more anxious to start baking x] i've also googled "cute cupcakes" and indeed, i saw some pretty cute cupcakes [[prepare for cute overload!]]
alike so:

i want these cupcakes! they look so yummy and chic! plus i adore chanel so how can i possibly resist?? >:9

ok, how can you say no to these?? so adorable! who doesn't think food with cute anime like faces are cute?

some of these cupcakes just speak for themselves. like "hii! i'm super cute and tasty! eaaattt meeee! >:D" haha

this is totally clever and i would definitly make this for the nerd in my life and maybe for my adorable nephews

so maybe these might not be the cutest cupcakes to, mmm maybe most of you guys, but i'm a sucker for domo-kun and his silly shinanigans. sorry if they're a bit scary but they literally made me lol when i saw them.

i just like these cuz i thought the color of the icing is really pretty :] [[note to self:get those piping nozzles!]] sometimes less=more :]

maybe next time when i got to michael's or ross [[where i got my wisk and spatula]] or walmart/target i'll buy myself some proper baking gear. [[maybe i'll make myself a cute little ruffled apron a la alice in wonderland! been wanting one of those too forEVER!]]

i guess the artist in me just wants to be challenged cuz i haven't really drawn or painted or pretty much anything in a long time and i guess styling myself just insn't enough. on to the next thing! baaaaking!! >:D
so hopfully the girls and i can do this in the next couple of weeks when we hang out. i'm excited! :D

universal studios!! :D

i really need to start updating this more...

anywoo, went to universal studios with my family a couple of weeks ago and had a pretty good time. i haven't been there in YEARS!! and i can't believe how much has changed! they took out so many rides ;____; [[e.t. went home....]] and i don't know if it was me or not, but was universal always that small? o___O
but still, it was fun to go to hollywood just the same. seeing that hollywood sign [[sans smog]] just makes you feel like dreamin :] i also kinda hoped that maybe we'd be exploring hollywood itself [[and maybe sneak away and look for kat von d's tattoo shop ;D i want to get my tattoo already! >___<]] but we just headed to universal studios.

btw, this is what i wore:

the jacket was my cousin matthews that he hasn't worn since elem school so i saved it :] also made the crazy decision of wearing my new studded flats which ended up making me feel as if i had been wearing a bear trap all day...but i thought i still looked cute ;]

one of the first "rides" we went on was the tram tour of the studios. there was so much film hist around there i felt like my eyes had turned into saucers the whole tour. i also wished i had 360 vision so i could see what was around me. so amazing!

this was supposed to be the part where jaws came out and "ate somebody" and came towards us [[it all looked so fake it was kinda funny. lol]] also, sorry that the pictures look so crappy. my digi camera is old and was not up for an adventure filled day so i took all of these w my camera phone c{:

bet you guys know where this is frooom ;] PSYCHO!! [[unfortunatly i have not had the pleasure of watching the whole thing but i still appreciate the film as a piece of american iconography. plus i like how movies were shot back then]] in hindsight, i kind of regret not taking this photo in b&w. that would've been awesome!
plus idk if you can see norman bates there carrying out a body out of the motel there but that was taking place when we drove by
there was a part when the tram went to the flooded subway studio and the tour guide said that a scene from "bones" was shot there, i totally geeked out and screamed and pretty much the whole tram heard me. haha

eventually made our way down to the lower level and there is this abnormally long succession of escalators and stairs.

the famous cousin yvanna and i messing around on the escalators since the had two right next to each other going the same direction

when we got down there, we made a bee line for the jurassic park ride. the line was pretty long so just ended up taking gurilla shots of yvanna [[shes gonna get mad me if she sees that i posted up a pic of her on my blog. ahha but she's so pretty :] ]]

the anticipation! [[though i must say, i was a bit disappointed i didn't get soaked like how i had expected...:sigh: o well]]

krustyland which replaced the back to the future ride. a bit sad that it's gone but the simpson's ride was actually pretty funny and very fun as well :] my cousins aren't really allowed to watch the simpsons [[which is a crying shame btw]] and they showed clips from the show while we were all waiting in line so everybody in line was pretty much laughing :]
after a while i got tired of taking pictures and just enjoyed the park and ended it with a delicious panda candy apple [[apple+caramel+mashmallow creme+finely crushed oreos= kawaii party in my mouth! :D]] i miss it and i'll probably end up trying to make out myself one day. one day...

the end :]

it rained love that day :]

my birthday was last saturday and i had a big ol picnic with my fav people [[my friends and fam]] and i don't really know what it is about birthdays, but they just make me feel so damn loved :3
anywoo, we had it at a marina park in a little place in san diego called seaport village. [[when coming to san diego, that is one of the places to see and is a one of the top destinations for photo ops]] and had a grand ol time. undoubtedly we all took a lot of pictures, but i think all the pictures would be a bit much for my blog. [[plus i'm still waiting for some of my other friends to post up some of the pictures so i can "steal" tghem and post them up here.]]
but for now, i'll post up some of the stuff i got for my birthday cuz they're jsut all really cute :]

an ice cream cone ballon in my fav flavors since i'm lactose intolerant. thanks guys! :D

a vintage flower vase which is totally gonna become a family heirloom when i get my own family :}

a swallow and birdcage necklace from my neice leanza :]

a bedazzled sunglass necklace [[so glam!! i'm even wearing it right now!]]

a rosary from one of my best friends jan :] [[we kinda have an inside joke about rosaries and hot topic and her grandma so that's probably why she got it for me]] i really love the length of it cuz i'm kind of a long necklace kinda girl and i think it looks pretty cool when it's long like this :]

a pair of handmade vintage earrings from my friend charlene [[she has an etsy people!! buy from her!!]] it's really pretty and i wore it to church this past sunday with my white f21 dress. [[though i forgot to take a picture of my whole outfit with the earrings on when i took this picture last night]]

paintings made by my friend angeli. they're so amazing! i am basically amazed when people make like, hand made things and original pieces like what angeli and charlene did. i'll probably, evetually get one of angeli's paintings/drawings tattooed on me or soemthing. theyr'e jsut that cool [[also, sorry that the picture is kidna blurry. i took it with my camera phone. my reg digi cam kinda sucks so i'm kinda saving up for a new one atm]]

another one of angeli's paintings. i love how two of the foxes are wearing sweaters [[i watched fantastic mr fox the other day as well so the painting kinda reminded me of it so that made me smile a little more than i already was :]]] i'm also loving all the little details as well. cuz when you realize how long it takes to actually do all that stuff, you kinda appreciate it more.

absolutely alice nail polish from opi that my cousin yvanna got me a week ago before my birthday and an alice in wonderland pin from disneyland when she was there last friday. i thought she coordinated her presents really well but then i thought again and she probably didn't even notice that she had even done that. she just knows i love alice :]

well, that's it for now, i'll post up more pictures as soon as i can ;]
