I was asked this question right after ranting about my being single for so long. I paused, thought about what I really wanted, and could not come up with a single adjective to describe what I was really looking for! Standards, I have a lot to say but that does not define what I really am looking for (paulit ulit na)...
If you were asked what exactly are you looking for? ano isasagot mo?
Can't believe how the night shift makes days fly by. It feels just like yesterday but I am now down to my last 3 days in Cebu and guess what, I only have a picture of the entrance of the building of Synergis.
hopefully, I can share something on my next post :)

On the night of August 29, we had a turkey dinner courtesy of Trina Stone! the first ever roasted turkey (as I grew up eating turkey meat but not as good as how the Canadian's cook it). the savory herbs and spices made a lot of difference! (Thanks, Trina for having us over and sharing with us your culture).
Josh de Ocampo, Johanna Mina, Bels Dacumos (Happy Birthday girl), Nat Cahinhinan and Evelyn (of Bell Solo) - nice hanging out with you guys!

Of friends (lost and found): How can you tell if a friend is a friend or not? >> First stop, Jem was an introvert (so she said before) but I would like to beg to disagree. She has now evolved from being a black-loving skinny girl with super straight jet black hair to what to be a skinny girl who gained weight, no longer wearing black and kinda curly girl at that time (cute). I was once again put on the hot seat and asked why wasn't I being responsive on updates regarding myself on IM. In my attempt to explain my side and redeem my being a true friend to her, I was silenced by how I would go back in time and explain why I rarely keep in touch but remain as a true friend. It was difficult to explain how I became who I am right now in dealing with long distance friends and I hope she understood me (details to be spared since I plan to blog about it next time).
Here's a favorite spot during the wee hours of the morning in Baguio. Volante is usually jampacked during the day but I can't blame the people since the food is relatively cheap and delicious and did I mention cheap?
Most of my fourth year college early mornings were spent here with group mates in film. Aside from those days, I usually spend my thinking moments here during the wee hours of the morning after having a couple rounds of beer with some friends. Most of the time, I just want to be alone and think.
Just for sharing: a lot of people think it's wierd that I have my silent moments every now and then, aside from the fact that I really am not a party animal. I usually get invites to go to bars and clubs but I always end up just drinking... getting bored... then I finally make my escape. Close friends of mine don't bother telling me when they plan to go to clubs during the weekends since they already know my answer. It's an automatic "no" or if ever I say yes, I set the expectation that I might just leave ahead of them.
Going back to what I originally planned on blogging about: VOLANTE >> It is thru Volante that gave birth to my Coffe Talks since I usually have a cup or two of the famous Benguet Blend coffee with classmates and friends.
What do I usually think about during my silent moments spent by session road? Nothing I guess. I just enjoy the silence and at times, observing the people who pass by.
Well, I hope to find something similar to Volante here in Manila. Close to Volante here in QC is where I usually get my caffeine dosage and dose of "people watching"... Starbucks Emerald
