26th last 26

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me! happy birthday! happy birthday, happy birthday to me!

so here is where i spent my week long celebration:

sarah and i both celebrated with the rest of the pack of wolves in MYLK (my little kitchen). you better check your bill though.. sometimes, they charge you for food not served! grrr!!! sarah! sayang yung 300 natin no! hehe.. it's been a while since we all got together.. (pic borrowed fr watson's post)

my family and i had dinner at ebun. it's really cheap here and they have yummy food! the waitress did a bad job though, taking our pic.. =( o well.. we ordered healthy food like chicharon bulaklak, crispy pata, binagoongan, beef adobo, and sinigang sa miso.. hehe.. dats why lalo ako nagiging sexy

and on my day itself, my boo and i had dinner at HEAVEN AND EGGS. always wanted to try it here.. it's good! (kahit mejo sunog yung steak ko) waiters are friendly. service is really fast, choices are good! noel was really happy with his big plate of nachos and i was overly happy with my minute steak with hashbrowns and mashed potato. diet kasi ako eh.. alam mo na.. ang hourglass figure.. baka ma deform (gag!) sobrang mura pa dito.. as in. noel woke me up at 12am to greet me and said: if you go outside, i can greet you in person. nagising ang lola mo bigla at kahit hindi pa nagmumumog, eh todo unlock ng gate! waaaaa! i have white roses (my favoritest) and PURPLE ones too! in 5 years, ngayon lang ako nabigyan ng REAL purple roses..then noel popd something in my face during dinner! IT'S THE RING I ALWAYS WANTED! waaaaa! he gave me an eternity ring for my bday! lalalalalalaa! happiness! he had to talk to my friend, gen (thanks talga sis) to arrange everything!!! waaaa! (fyi, i'm not engaged ok??!!! it's BDAY GIFT) so all in all, i had a great month. i was broke due all the eating and shopping during midnight madness.. but I HAVE THE RING!!!! yeeeeey! dessagirl = happy girl!

I love watching romantic comedies... as in! here are some of my favorites.. HITCH, NEVER BEEN KISSED, and 50 FIRST DATES (MY FAVORITEST EVER)..

i guess i like being an idealist..(though there are a lot of things that changed this). i recommend these movies to watch with your man (if they resist, make them, girls!) and with your girlfriends.. super panalo! i never get tired watching them over and over and over.. although i'm sure everyone saw these already.. watch it again! kung hindi pa, saan planeta ka galing?

although i have to warn you, they have a tendency to make you depressed. kasi yung mga hunghang na lalaking ito ay sobra.. (esp. adam sandler at 50 first dates). if you know what i mean, you'll agree. so to all those who are still hoping that there is such a man.. cge lang.. let me know so i can pray for you.. hehe..

Mr. Crocodile Hunter, rest in peace

i can't believe mr. hypr croc hunter is gone.. my friend kathy sent me an email this morning that he was stabbed by a stingray's barb while swimming on top of it. it went thru his chest and straight to his heart. he was filming while this happened.. a little something about STEVE IRWIN
Steve Irwin is the best-known wildlife crusader in the world today. As the Crocodile Hunter, Steve has become a household name and his television adventures are seen by more than 200 million viewers in 120 countries around the globe. He's starred in his first movie for the big screen, The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, and has also appeared on such popular television talk shows as Regis and Kelly, Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show, Larry King Live and Oprah. Despite his high international profile, Steve's commitment to wildlife remains paramount.

His passion to protect the world's most endangered and threatened species can be traced back to his parents, conservationists and animal lovers Bob and Lyn Irwin, the founders of Australia Zoo. As a young boy, Steve helped Bob rescue and relocate crocodiles in the rivers of North Queensland. The father-and-son team are proud to say that over 100 crocodiles living at Australia Zoo were either caught by them or bred and raised in the zoo.

In his 20s, Steve volunteered his services to the Queensland government's rogue crocodile relocation program, for years living alone in the mosquito-infested creeks, rivers and mangroves of North Queensland, apprehending huge troublesome crocodiles single-handedly and achieving a staggeringly successful catch rate.

In 1992, Steve and his friend, television producer John Stainton, created a distinctive new style of wildlife documentary. That one-hour program, The Crocodile Hunter, featured Steve, his new wife, American wildlife caretaker Terri Raines, and the animals of Far North Queensland. Steve's boisterous charm, unconventional style and extraordinary daring, combined with Terri's wit and composure in dangerous situations and their amazingly close encounters with such potentially deadly creatures as crocodiles, venomous snakes and spiders, have seen The Crocodile Hunter became a worldwide hit.

In addition to The Crocodile Hunter series, Steve and Terri have filmed 53 episodes of the Emmy Award-nominated Croc Files, various one-off specials for NBC and an intimate new series, The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, a behind-the-scenes look at Steve's daily life at Australia Zoo.

As testimony to their commitment to conservation and the environment, Steve and Terri have purchased over 60,000 acres of wildlife-sensitive land and are working towards the rehabilitation and breeding of some of the world's most endangered animals. At Australia Zoo, they have established a breeding program to help such endangered species as the southern cassowary, koala, giant land tortoise, Fijian crested iguana and Komodo dragon, to name just a few. The zoo, a dedicated conservation area covering over 250 acres, earned Australia's most prestigious tourism award as "Major Tourist Attraction" for 2003.

Steve was recently awarded the title "2004 Queensland Australian of the Year."

Ocular Inspection

watson, fisherpau, and i went to the south for ocular inspection of venues for our business planning. we went to at least 5 different places starting from Lipa, Batangas to Tagaytay. i wasnt THAT tired kasi we ate and then once we get in the car, we sleep (sorry jerry! he was so kind to drive us around even if we couldn't help but fall asleep). panu, 6am palang, i was already in mcdo town center. o well..

here are some highlights of our trip:

the cheesecak from BAG OF BEANS in tagaytay. it's along the main road to your right, coming from the rotonda. my boss took me here early this year during our ocular, too. i ordered strawberry cheesecake and took home the cinamon raisin bread back then... and did the same thing when i brought watson and fisherpau there..

the sound of music altar of claudine barreto (spell check). we went to tagaytay highlands too.. this place is even more famous after the real nice wedding of claudine and raymart (showbizzzz) marami kaming nasagap na stuff about the wedding.. heheheee.. bagay ba??? truly!!!

the first diagonal elevator in the philippines. this is found in tagaytay highlands too, at the bellview hotel. parang escalator na elevator. check out the view. when you look over the balcony, this is what you see.. cool no?

the summit golf club. oooohhh! such a nice piece of construction! take a look! it's relatively new and caters mostly to koreans. they say the golf course is really nice here. mu-ang ko ba sa golf.
