My Happy 3 Friends 2012

Halloa! After months of inactivity, I am making a comeback to write about my 3 awesome friends. (They are just awesome like that! And no, they are not morbid unlike what my title suggests.) Since we're gonna have another Reunion coming up, it's just high time to feature you, guys!

I went to Quezon City Science (Quesci) in HS and met 3 lovely people.
Joby, me, Ate Kim, Ate Risa
Joby is the saintliest (and weird err.. most unconventional ) person I know. She's a true friend who'll go to the moon with you. Ate Kim (yeah, we're close like sisters) is the most talented in music. She can play piano, guitar, violin and can sing too. Well, Joby can play the violin too and Ate Risa can play the piano (that leaves me, the only tone deaf in the group). Ate Risa is quiet and caring. She and Joby are the main reasons I got into anime.

We formed our little group during 3rd year in Quesci. We called ourselves P6. Stands for 6 P's we forgot about. Haha!  We are the "not mainstream" group, never were and never will. I seem to yearn that kind of uncomplicated happy friendship in college where I found little success. Until now, we make it a point to bond once a year at least. But this year was one of the bests! we were able to see each other 3 times going 4! 

A picture summary.:)

July 22 Post Summer date

Every year, when we're complete, we always get studio pics such as that one above (parang HS lang. Haha!). This time we went to SM North (as usual) and just had some girl talk. We ate at Kimono Ken then had dessert at Krispy Kreme.

Awesome 4some at Krispy Kreme (sariling sikap picture)
Then we sang our hearts out at Timezone Trinoma. Unfortunately, Ate Kim has to go to her choir's concert rehearsal (See? She's really talented) so, she missed our concert. Haha!

Go me!

They took my outfit shot! yayy!

Sept. 22   LIV  

Since Joby and I are in the same org, we invited our friends to LIV, ECOSOC's Anniversary Party. Unfortunately, Ate Kim was not allowed to go (Strike 2, joke langgg. Haha!) That was a WILD PARTY but FUN. We even have water guns. Cool!

Bonggang stage!

Happy 3 Friends

Point and shoot
Aside from that, there is a large Emblem where we can vandal whatever we want. Cool, huh?

P6 Vandal

 And at 12pm, the midnight reveal! FOAM BUBBLES! We heard it lasted for 2 hours. COOL!!!

Foam Bubbles!

After that we slept at Joby's house!


October 6     Trick Art Museum

As her birthday is just around the corner, Ate Kim invited us to .... somewhere. We just found out where when we got there, crazy, right? Apparently, we were brought to the Seri's Fantasealand, to the Trick Art Museum and 3D viewing, just beside Manila Ocean Park. After the teasers, we now knew what the cameras are for. BEWARE: This is Photo-heavy. Enjoy!

Excited us!!

Most convincing! Haha!


Plain room

We tried out the arcade to pass the time for the 3D show. It was my also my first time to ride a bump car!


Ready, set, go!

Then we watched a 3D film of migratory birds.

Before the 3D show

What's a birthday without food right? We were treated to a Chinese Restaurant in MOA. We were filled with their Bamboo Rice and Congee. We were starstruck with the desserts!

Mango Ice

French Toast

Heavenly finish! We thank Ate Kim's family especially, her Mom and Dad, for an unforgettable date!

To my Ladies, I  miss you and see you on the 29th!;)

One Sunday Morning

Sunday is Church day!

That's why I always make it a point to dress my best. I always pick up something comfy and decent more than what's fashionable. But it's always a win-win situation if you achieved both. Using some of my basics (and most often used pieces) I was able to have this look.

Leopard top, printed skirt, stiletto necklace, turkish bracelet and gold watch (hand me downs)
Belt (SM Dept. Store) 

Shoes (Chelsea, SM Dept.)
All of these pieces I own since time immemorial. Haha!:)) I think I was able to pull off a decent but nice outfit. After attending mass together, my mother, sister and I went to SM Fairview to shop.:)

I am planning to use my 1,500 worth of CHEMISTRY GCs I got from ACLE (See here: The first time I tried to spend my GCs was in SM Annex but for some reason, they weren't accepted so, I went to SM Fairview next. 

When we got there, the lady said that they accept GCs but since their system is down, they have to call first to ask. I was worried because we might not be able to use the GCs again. Good thing, they accepted and processed manually.

I waited for almost a year before using my GCs because having a tight budget, I see to it that I'll buy what I really need. Even if it took me so long to use my GCs, it wasn't my first time in Chemistry. I always pass by the shop to check all items and choose what I really like.

What I like about Chemistry stores is that they have a bright lighting unlike other stores with fluorescent lighting, you're not sure if the color of the item really looks good on you or the lighting is just nice.

The boys and the girls side

Girls side
Who doesn't love a sale?:)

Accessories! (That's my sister taking the photo and my mom. Haha!)

More accessories in the counter.
Another thing I love about the store is that it has unique dressing rooms! They're very safe and private plus it's air-conditioned! Mirrors are also sky-high (exagge! Haha!).

Some of my choices:

Denim vest

Patterned dress
Demure dress with my sis' pink floral top

Seems like from a 50's movie

Checkered vest and denim semi-corporate skirt
The first time I saw this skirt, I fell in love! I saw it first in Annex and it's definitely one of my picks. In the end, we bought these.

Pink Floral top for my Sis, Denim skirt and Floral blazer for me!
I chose these because of functionality, it can be used in corporate and casual settings. When I shop, I always get my sister at least one item. She's very matampuhin. Haha!

Chemistry is not only a his and her brand which often comes out very "matchy". In Chemistry, each piece has a connective thread with the other pieces, enough for mature couples (even singles) to express their style and inspiration. This makes them unique and a stand out from other brands. The prices are moderately affordable too. I'll surely come back for that denim vest I saw earlier. Haha!

Thank you Chemistry! 

Love, Carmi ♥
