  1. Last Monday, I asked Bading, my boyfriend to watch Heneral Luna. The meeting time was before 4 p.m. I didn’t have sleep that day but I managed to go out on time. I was wearing my new jersey shirt but when I heard the rain pouring, I changed to jacket, skinny pants and my bulky SB Nike. My so called, when-it-rains-heavily-starting-pack.
  2. He waited for me after shift. Take note, I work on a graveyard shift. My out was 5 a.m. and he was in 7-eleven outside our building at 4 a.m. I know, I was lucky to have this guy.
  3. Last time, our manager treated us in eat-all-you-can in Eastwood, I also got a certificate for being a top agent for the month of July.
  4. Whenever I come home early in the morning, I always notice this little cat sleeping on our old motorcycle. Such a cutie, I wanna pet her but she’s our neighbor’s.
  5. We all know that even girls have a lot of clothes, we always say that we don’t have something to wear anymore. And I felt it that moment. So I DIY-ed my huge Wrangler polo that I bought from the thrift store. And I nailed it!
  6. My boyfriend and I hung out in U.P., I missed that! I was goofing around and he was busy playing NBA on his phone.

Let’s Talk About Books

20140117_163031Which do your prefer: physical books or e-books?

Of course physical books. Back then, I tried to download e-books, after a week I just uninstalled everything from my phone. I like the smell and the feeling having a physical book. Buying a book is such an investment.

Who is your favorite fictional character?

I know that this question is asking for just one, but I have a lot! Haha. Here’s my list, Stephanie Plum from Plum Series by Janet Evanonich, Alaska Young of Looking For Alaska by John Green and Isabella Swan of  Twilight By Stephenie Meyer.

Longest book you read?

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. And oh, there’s this book that I haven’t finished yet it feels like it’s so long. Haha. Eat Love and Pray.

What is your favorite quote from a book?

“Pain demands to be felt.” – The Fault In Our Stars

What are your reading habits?

Nothing in particular. I like reading in any position, but most often, I just lay in bed.

How many book shelves do you have?

I have three.

Most hated fictional character?

I don’t know. I don’t know if I have one.

How often do you read?

Back then, when I still had a lot of spare time, I always read. I could finish one book in just one sit or when I just bought book, I read it immediately. But now, I have a day work.. I don’t have enough time to read. Saddens me.

What’s your all-time favorite book?

I think, Looking For Alaska or The Fault In Our Stars

Which do you prefer to do: read one book at a time or several at once?

I tried reading several books at once but I couldn’t finish them! Hahaha. So, I just stick one book at a time.

Every book that I read. Always make sure that you learned something from the books you’d read.

In my room. So peaceful.
