New Year's Must do's

So many things have happened to me in the past year. I've learned, laughed and lived a lot. No one can accuse me of living idly; I was always on the move, making the most of the years I have here. You see, I've always believed that I will die young. Morbid much? Not really.

I have made count…

A YM conversation

This is Joner commenting on the I broke the heart of my "The One Who Got Away and I Was Too Stupid to Have Let Go" and got my heart broken by "The Biggest Twerp on Earth. No Scratch That, Make That The Universe" part from my previous post. I gave him the link to a private blogpo…

A blink of an eye

Is it really the 30th already? Where have all the days gone? Time passed so fast, I was barely able to keep up. A blink of an eye. Yeah, that's an apt metaphor.

The year 2008 has been a monumental year for me. So many things have happened and I had a great number of epiphanies.
I became a part of…

One of the best Christmases I've had

Indeed, Christmas 2008 was one of the best I've had. Everything felt so festive and merry and bright that it was impossible to release my inner Scrooge.

I spent half of the day at the office because I had work and then followed Papa to Malabon City after ny shift. Meanwhile my Ma and younger sis…

It's my favorite day of the year!

I would like to greet everyone a



Very Merry Christmas!

I hope you all bask in the festivities, yet still find time to reflect on the solemnity of the season and the reason why we celebrate it.

Kisses!

One last rush shopping before Christmas!

Whew! I had to make another mad dash to the mall today to buy presents for everyone else in my list that I haven't bought presents for. I went to SM San Lazaro with my younger sister Kyla. I was able to buy everything on my list, except for one: a gift for my Kris Kringle "baby"! Oh n…

Christmas rush shopping haul

These are the stuff I got from my latest trip to bargain-shopping mecca Divisoria with my Ma Ü

Two pairs of jeans that are absolute perfect fit!The one in the left with the purple patch cost me only 200php while the one in the right was for 240php. Unbelievable right? They are such big steals!They a…

A nice compliment

A YM conversation earlier today with Joner, a friend and college classmate:

joner: how do you do it
krissy: what?
joner: gettig good finds for a cheap price
joner: must be a gift huh
joner: :p

I believe he was referring to my bargain-shopping skills as shown in my Divisoria shopping trip I blogged about …

Christmas rush shopping

I went el-cheapo shopping again today in 168 Mall. This time I went with my Mom. You won't believe the throngs of people. People literally came in droves! But I guess that gives Divisoria its unique flavor. You would always equate "throngs of people" with Divisoria. Just think how bor…

Buried under the holiday rush

I haven't updated this blog as much as I would want to, mainly because I have been busy with work and stuff. Add to that the fact that I am still without a computer *sobsobhinthintwinkwinknudgenudge* :D Anyway, lots of stuff happened and I would really really want to share them through Krissyfi…

Materialistic recessionista shares awesome bargain finds

Mich, Sasha, Ar and I went to Divisoria last Monday for some bargain-retail therapy. We knew it would be crowded, what with Christmas coming and all, but we willingly braved the crowds for el-cheapo but fabulous pieces. It was super fun! Materialistic recessionista-vibes. Aah, this is the life. Ü

Wh…

Krissy, a Foodie? I'll stick with Magastos, maybe.

The last day of Powerbooks' Creative Writing Workshop series was moved to last Saturday (December 6) which was a blessing in disguise since Ana was extremely busy for her bazaar stints last week.

"How to Write Delicious Food Articles and Restaurant Reviews" was the topic of the last wo…

Food probs

Tomorrow is the last day of the Powerbooks' Creative Writing Workshop series I have signed up for and it will be about How to Write Delicious Food Articles and Restaurant Reviews. Now, I cannot reiterate this enough; I am probably the most undomestic goddess I know and this workshop terrifies m…

Krissy's Kris Kringle

With the coming of December comes the requisite Christmas parties! And I love it because it gives me another excuse to go shopping tee hee Ö I must say that the Christmas season is my favorite; aside from the lovely snoozy weather, it is also the time of giving (and receiving) gifts. Yeah yeah, I k…

It's December!

Oh wow time flew by so fast.. Where have all the days gone? Anyway, it's December, and you know what means right? Aside from it being the Christmas month, it is also the time when bonuses are being handed left and right. I splurged on myself a bit last week when I bought myself a new phone, and…

Channelling Gwynnie at the Super Groove event

Oh wow, screw being without a computer. this post is so overdue =/

Here is another excuse to go shopping and glam up!

We had our Holiday Kick-off Party last Thursday (27 November) at the PICC Forum Tent. It was big and fun but the Discovolution, I think, was executed better. Nevertheless I had more f…

Welcoming Alister

I indulged myself yesterday and ticked one off my wish list: a new phone. I finally got a Nokia 3120 classic and I love it! It is in graphite though because the mobile phone shops in SM Fairview do not carry it in other colors. That's fine, I will have it G-masked anyway. Ü

Sad

My baby Elixir died. Ruther sent me an SMS earlier today, saying he found Elixir floating, dead. He surmises it is because he is a different specie of fish; he is an angelfish while Phantasmagoria, Serenity and Chaos are all goldfishes, even though they are from different families. Now I need to bu…

It is November 25 so...

I am so excited to see it.

Quick quotes #3

The only way to grow is to have the initiative to get out of your comfort zone and do things you thought you couldn't do.

Stream of Consciousness

I finally bought the aquarium I have been dreaming to buy, and I am so happy!

Ruther, Asther and I went to Bioresearch at SM North EDSA yesterday to buy my aquarium, fishes and all the other what-nots. However for the aerator we were able to buy that at Under the Sea since Bioresearch did not have a…

The spotlight is on Spotlighting a Travel Piece

I went to Powerbooks - Megamall last Saturday for the second module of the Powerbooks' Creative Writing Workshop series. The topic was Spotlighting a Travel Piece. There was a slight improvement with the number of attendees (five this time as compared to last week's three): the staple works…

Soul Sisters in the Success Story workshop

Oh wow I haven't posted anything in a while now. Blame it on my busted PC, who until now sits in her busted-ness. Ugh. I need a new one so bad, but funds are low at the moment, so I am getting by through my beloved Tito's computer and the office's cybercenter.

So, some updates I guess...…

Just some updates..

I am posting this from the office, just some quick updates... My computer has broken down beyond repair. It needs a new motherboard, processor and memory. Might as well buy a new PC, yes? My TL and manager were able to arrange my schedule so that I would be able to attend Powerbooks' writing work…

Tidbits and tra la las

My computer is under repair once again :( I'm in a computer shop right now, uploading pictures from last week's team building to my Multiply and Tranche 5's Friendster accounts. Ü

Some pictures from the said event:

Quicko

I take back everything I said yesterday (about the stress part). The team building we had yesterday was SUPER FUN! Everyone from Team Jimmy was there, and I even saw my bestfriend Jerome with his twin brother Jonas and friends Jess and Ramil! Lots of good food, hearty laughter and great conversatio…

I am smiling now Ü

I could not stay unhappy for long. I am not the type who broods and dwells on sad thoughts and I do not want to let unhappiness get the better of me. I talked with my officemates by phone and by YM conference and I am feeling much better now. I will go to the team building later and I will bring my…

Smile Krissy, smile

My planned reprieve has been interrupted. My TL texted everyone of us asking us to go to Trinoma tomorrow for our team building.

It kinda sucks because I planned on going to the office tomorrow straight from home and not return to the apartment until after work tomorrow. Now I have to go to Trinoma …

My two favorites got together...

I admit that I am a nerd. I devour books and I am a total trivia junkie. I have an assumed love affair with words and I am perpetually amazed at how a string of letters can construct - and deconstruct - words.

And of course, it is quite obvious by the over-all look of this site that I love the color…

Busted computer unbusted!

My PC's up and running again!

Big, pink thanks to my Tito who repaired it! That was fast! Ö

Busted computer

Of all the days in a week, my computer chooses the two days I am at home to break down on me. I am only able to use her every Tuesday and Wednesday since I stay at my apartment in Quezon City the rest of the week. I am only able to catch up on my emails and accounts on these two days. I am only abl…

Holidays are coming

... and HSBC will have a Holiday Kick-off Party!

The event will be held on 27 November 2008 at the PICC and will have "Super Nightclub" as the theme. I only have 24 days left to prepare, and I NEED to find the perfect outfit! I bought a very nice metallic slate gray dress from Freeway last…
