Since I don’t have as much free time as before yet I can’t bear to abandon this space completely, I’m reduced to posting *Month* in pictures. First off in November is Dudee’s 1st Death Anniversary. I love that she looks so pretty in her tarp because she’s one beautiful girl, inside and out.
And yeah, the start of classes. Unlike in my previous college where classes are suspended late and professors are present even during the first day, my new school is not so strict when it comes to attendance. The teachers and students jokingly say that we’re celebrating”Our Lady of No Classes” this second semester. Case in point:
Abi recommended we try Starbuck’s version of Butterbeer from the Harry Potter fame. It’s basically a creme Frapuccino base with 3 pumps of caramel syrup and 3 pumps of toffee nut syrup topped with caramel drizzle. It’s not how I expect Butterbeer will taste like but it’s still a decent drink. Can’t wait to try the one offered at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Ugh, bring me there.
Burger Bar with college buddies. Where you will taste one of the best onion rings ever, and that is coming from someone who doesn’t like onions. The burgers are delicious and their desserts come in cute jars.
An Indian restaurant opened at Robinson’s Place Manila. Dai and I just had to try it. We enjoyed the roti and chicken tandoori but what caught my attention is their dessert called “Gulabjamun”, made of low fat powdered milk delicately made into balls, fried in oil to perfection and served with sweet warm syrup. Others might find this too sweet but I like the consistency and temperature.
On another occasion we tried Isla Cafe. The Pares and Pancit were decent but not something we’d crave for, we’d get the same taste for a cheaper price somewhere else. The cassava cake was dry and not delicious though the salted caramel syrup was okay. The yema puto was divine.
New hobby: reading Manga. Bought Manga Storm on iTunes which was so worth it. In Dai’s words, one lifetime is not enough to finish reading all the good ones out there. (left: Fairy Tail, right: Shingeki no Kyojin)
Had a reunion with my lovely room mates from the dorm. Too bad we were only 5 out of 8. The dorm is another special place for me because it’s where I first felt like the bunso. In Ate Joy’s words, we were strangers who happened to live together by chance and became more like a family.
Been passing by This Cup at Village Square in Harrison Plaza every time I attend Church. One Sunday, I tried one of their drinks, Lychee Yakult, and regretted that I didn’t check it out before. Also had a sip of Honey Green Tea which was refreshing.
My favorite school supply as of the moment. For the first time, the textbooks I bought aren’t left to rot on my shelf. I actually use them! What my professor said that they’ll only provide 20% and we’ll have to learn the 80% on our own made sense.
Annddddddd, since most of my classmates are 4 to 6 years my junior, I decided to have side bangs to pretend that I’m still a teenager. HAHA! Seriously tho, whenever my classmates ask me how old I am, I ask them what they think and their answers (ranging from 17 to 19 years old) flatter me big time. LOL.
