10 Cheap Gifts I’d Love to Receive

If you’ve read 10 Simple Gifts I’d Love to Receive, you’ll know that I’ve already made a similar list. I thought of more items, so I made this new list.

1. Gel pens

I  like doodling with them.

2. Mod Podge

Hey Kessy in UP Town Center has it.

3. Clear acrylic spray

I use it for my crafts.

4. Elmer’s All-White glue

I use Elmer’s glue for my bus ticket art and my paper mache. I’d really love to get that giant jug of Elmer’s glue.

5. Flour

I use flour for my paper mache so I need lots of it.

6. Papemelroti notebooks

I like Papemelroti’s blank notebooks with no design in front. I like them because I design the covers. I also like the Papemelroti notebooks with designs in front, especially the ones with inspirational quotes. Unlike ballpens, I actually also like fancy notebooks, but I don’t mind cheap ones as well.

Sana may bike rental sa traffic na streets

Sobrang traffic na sa Maynila these days na minsan bumababa ako ng bus at naglalakad. Tapos, mas mabilis pa ang lakad ko kaysa sa takbo ng bus. Sa mga sitwasyong ito, makikita ko na maraming tao din ang bumaba sa bus at nagproprosisyon kami together sa kalye.

Kaya minsan nag-wiwish ako na sana may bike rentals sa mga kalyeng ganito para magbibike nalang ko hanggang sa dulo ng kalye, tapos puwede mo iwanan doon sa dulo na hindi na traffic or hanggang makarating ka sa MRT.

Awayan sa kurtina sa bus

Parang scarce resource na yata ang kurtina sa bus. Na-experience mo na ba ito: ang init ng araw kaya hahatakin mo yung kurtina, pero yung taong nasa harap mo hahatakin rin. Away na ito! Naka-aircon bus ka nga pero wa-epek naman ito kasi nakaupo ka sa may bintana at sobrang lakas ng araw.

Dati naman may kurtina ang lahat ng bintana sa bus. Bakit ngayon parang kulang-kulang? Minsan pa nga, walang kurtina yung boung bus. Good luck nalang sa init!

The Weirdest Conversation I Ever Had: V for Vagina

I don’t really know how the conversation evolved into us giggling while chanting “V for vagina!” but that’s how the conversation went. As far as I can remember, I was in a table with people who were attending the birthday party of a friend. Some of them were my close friends ever since grade school or high school while some were people I just met that day. For some sort of reason, the group clicked, and then things got hilariously weird.

My OMG I’m in the First World Moments

Note: I posted this on my Facebook, and I decided to post it here too.

My impressions of Las Vegas, Nevada:

1.) All the houses look the same. When the plane was landing and I looked out the window, the houses looked like well arranged lego. It’s like an opening scene in Harry Potter where you see Hedwig swooping down to Harry’s window.

2.) There’s a drive through ATM

3.) There’s a drive through Pharmacy

4.) There’s a dvd vending machine

5.) If you want to return a library book, you just drop it off in some drop box. You don’t need to enter the library.

Jasmine of All Trades

When I was in grade seven, I received a call from The Philippine Daily Inquirer saying that I was nominated for kids’r’rrific, a section that features talented kids. At first, I thought it was a prank. I was going to slam the receiver when the person said I was nominated by Precilla and Amanda, who were coincidentally hanging out at my house along with the rest of my PJAM barkada. Forgetting that I had someone on the phone, I screamed at my friends, “Ninominate ninyo ako?

Confessions of a T-Shirt Reader

Hi, my name is Ja, and I’m a t-shirt reader.

I am addicted to all kinds of t-shirts. Funny t-shirts, t-shirts with slogans, t-shirts with quotes, you name ’em. As long as there are letters on that piece of cloth, then, sure as hell, I’m gonna read it.
