67th Annual Golden Globes

I was watching the 67th Golden Globes the other day with my mom. I was amazed by how, even after years of being in the limelight, some actors still fumble and falter during their acceptance speech. Would it be nerves or just the excitement of winning an award? It’s a little hard to imagine they are all just people. Better paid people, but still just people.
And here are the winners:

Colon cleanse

I downloaded this detox recipe off the internet one time and decided to try it out. It was called the Epsom Salt Detox. Before I list the ingredients and procedure to make this concoction, let me first warn you that after this detox, I swore that I will never, ever do this again! Although, I must admit, my hair was shinier and my skin and nails looked healthier and more radiant. I also felt lighter, more active and not sluggish. But, the night of the detox, I had to take multiple trips to the bathroom, I looked green and I felt nauseous. Proceed with caution!
Here's the recipe. Don't say I didn't warn you though.

passport renewal

I was at the DFA yesterday to have our passport renewed.

The last time we renewed our passport, we didn't need to go to the DFA. All you had to do was fill-up the necessary forms and submit 3 pieces passport picture and send it there. After a few days, they send the new passport along with the old/canceled one.
Now, you have to appear before an authorized DFA personnel in the DFA office to sign and give your thumb marks. So naturally when you get there, there's a process involved in the filing of passport renewal. You have to stand in line because they need to assess each and every individual and so if you're late, then its a long wait.

My mom, Bugz and I were there at 8:30am sharp to meet up with the travel agent who helped us arrange the papers and forms needed for the passport renewal. It was really so much easier when you have an agent to help you with these things. It only took us less than 15mins to get in line, sign and give our thumb marks. Except for the photos, which we needed to retake because the ones we got were rejected (stupid studio...never again!), everything went smoothly.

We may have paid a little extra for the help but it sure beats standing in line for hours.

James and Egie

Egie got married today! It was a very simple civil ceremony over at peach blossom along North Avenue, Quezon City. The food was bland and tasteless but I didn't mind. All I cared about was that one of my best friends was getting married! She's finally found THE ONE! She calls him God's Gift (or GG for short). Yes it's cheesy, but aren't we all cheesy when we're in love? So to Egie and James, Best Wishes and Congratulations! I love you both!

COP reunion 2010

What a great day!
We had thing reunion of sorts with friends from college at Jem's parents house at Multinational, Paranaque. We had such a great time! We all brought our significant others and then some.

the men

and the ladies.

and of course, the kids.

and this great 34inch pizza! The pizza was from  NIRO Cafe and Pizzeria at 283 Aguirre Ave. BF Homes. Absolutely delicious! The dough was nice and soft and the toppings were just perfect! I think they have branches at Pioneer, Valero and Dela Rosa Makati and Ermita.
I wish they'd bring a branch here in QC.
