Lost Appetite, Lost track of Time June 30, 2008

Filed under: personal,wall of the wierd — hannaherika @ 2:30 pm

A very weird thing is happening in my body right now. I have lost my appetite! Normally, I eat more than Vinz does on a normal seating (that’s according to my officemates). You can always see food in my office table and food reserves on my office pedestal (which they now call my cupboard).

I know when It’s already 4pm ‘coz I start to find food ‘coz I’m already hungry by then. But this day, it’s so just weird. I only ate stuffed hotdog for breakfast, sandwhich for lunch and no snacks at all. I didn’t feel hungry or feel like eating anything at all. So I just lost track of time and didn’t know that it was already 6pm (time for me to go home).

I just want to share this to the ladies… And to the guys who find her pretty… Blair Waldorf, spotted at Gossip Girl’s set, wearing an adorable printed dress accented by the pink belt that matches her pink bag. Not to forget her signature headband and her comfy flats.

Drooling over this dress so pretty!


Happy 21st Birthday Ed!

Filed under: celebrities,entertainment,gossip girl — hannaherika @ 8:00 am

Hey Gossip Girls. Just a Gossip Girl update. The boy we love to hate just celebrated his 21st birthday at Tao Las Vegas.

Although, once a bad boy always a bad boy. Here’s a sneak peak of Chuck Bass’s sizzlin summer in GG’s season 2.

Definitely a steamy summer for a steamier season!

But that’s Chuck Bass we’re talking about… Real life Ed Westwick though is much sweeter in person.


After the Filthy Youth’s performance in New York, he immediately approach his very own supporting parents.

The Optimist’s Creed
by C.D. Larson

Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Got this from a my dear dear friend who has Lupus. We were always wondering why she’s always sick. Only this year did she know she had Lupus. Despite her fragile condition she remains radiant and optimistic.
I often get hugely affected by small problems. This friend of mine reminded me of what should be. Her smile and optimism got through me. So they say… “Smiling is Contagious.” The same is true with Optimism.

“Lupus: A chronic inflammatory condition caused by an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s tissues are attacked by its own immune system. Patients with lupus have unusual antibodies in their blood that are targeted against their own body tissues.”

It’s friday night and my friend Roxanne canceled our movie night. I would have wanted to watch “Wanted” starring Angelina Jolie. But, Roxy has a flight to Bacolod (our hometown) and Vinz is in California right now. So, I’m stuck at home… bored… and downloading stuff. While waiting, I got this from a friend and I think it’s fun to like answer them. You guys if you are bloggers too, you could copy and paste these questions and answer them yourself. So that readers might have fun knowing you. Calling out Praveen Deepak!

1. Is it difficult for you to look into someone’s eyes when you are talking to them?
It depends who this person iz… probably if I feel like I’m blushing, I’d have to hide my face from the person I’m talking to. but I usually do on a normal conversation it is just polite! I smile too =)

2. You are on a flight from Honolulu to Chicago non-stop. There is a fire in the back of the plane. You get enough time to make ONE phone call. Who would you call?
My lawyer!

3. You have to choose between your significant other and your best friend, who do you choose?
Gosh… okay how do I answer this… Since all of my best friends have significant others already, they would understand that I’d have to choose my own significant other.. Peace bestybuddies!

4.You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live..
(A) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die?
Yes, transparency is one of the valuable lessons I learned from my job. They should know and it’s only fair to them, especially your loved ones. So that they would have the time to prepare too.

(B) What do you do with your remaining days?

(C) Would you be afraid?
Not afraid to die.. I’m more afraid of the “how” do I die factor. I hope it would not be painful and ugly. I want to stay pretty when I die.

5. You can have one of the following two things: trust or love?
Trust! with this comes love too. I guess. =)

6. You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you if you are late one more time you get fired. What do you do?
Save the dog!!! OMG dog lover here! I couldn’t care more about work. And besides, my boss knows I’m always early!

7. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Where do I begin… Greece is top priority. I don’t know why.. Then I met new friends in Malaysia lately so I’d go there too. I’d do a whole Eurotrip! watch F1 races.. go to Finland… Go to UK and meet a friend there and meet the Spicegirls! Monaco and be at Amber Lounge, well I love New York! I wanna go to Africa too! even to Alaska! man… Egypt for the pyramids.. Dubai for the palm island and India for Taj Mahal raaah!!!! Travel addict!

8. Think of the last person who you really knew that died. You have the chance to give them 1 hour of life back, but you have to give one year of your life. Is it okay for you?
My dad… died when I was 3 years old… I’d love to get to know him coz I never really remembered much when I was three…

9. Are you the kind of person that you would want to have as a friend?
I don’t really know… Two of me is bad, I want someone opposite as a friend. opposite attracts yeah. hehe. but yeah, I’m a loyal friend!

10. Does love = sex?
not exactly! love = many other things besides sex but hmmm… I guess the right equation is Love x Passion = Sex (sex just a product) nyahaha but they don’t absolutely equate each to each other.

11. One of your best friend dies, what would you do?
give her a tribute… and cry… and cry… and pray… and I would’nt sleep alone for 9 days… I’m afraid she might visit me or something.. scared of ghosts.. even if it’s you besty huhuhu.. You know me please don’t… “~

12. When was the last time you told someone HONESTLY how you felt?

When my mother gave me money for my trip to Sing. =) hehehe What would I do without her…?

Go to med school.. Now’s too late for me to do that. =)

17. Imagine. It is a dark night, you are alone, it is raining outside, you hear a noise. What do you do?
I am a calm person. I usually don’t move when I sense something. This gives me time to keep my senses alert. HOLY FUDGE!!!!! did you say “DARK NIGHT” waaah! run! Anything.. anything at all…not just the dark!!!

18. Would you give a stranger CPR if they were dying?
Of course! I’m a doctor-wannabe.. It’s my chance to save a life!

19. Are you old-fashioned?
Nada! Not even… well I guess in some ways.. But my views are not black and white… I see gray.. and other colors… =)

20. Which would you choose, true love with a guarantee of a heartbreak or to never have loved?
To love even if I know my heart will be broken. Just experiencing love is worth the heartbreak sometimes. I may be a hopeless romantic and I might sometimes dream of fairytales…. but i just know… You haven’t lived if you have not loved… and it is the most mysterious journey you will want to experience no matter what…


Missing Boracay, Missing Summer

Filed under: personal,philippines,travel — hannaherika @ 10:20 am
I wasn’t able to enjoy my summer much. I had surgery and I had to recover from it. Sometimes I feel that a summer without Boracay is no summer at all.


Island party every night

Sigh… see you next year Boracay

I just love my compact camera and I’m obsessed with it. I thought at first I should buy a DSLR. But then I thought I needed a compact first! I’ll buy the new 1000D hopefully within the year. But for now… I love my Leica Lens Panasonic Lumix TZ5.

Amber Lounge

Filed under: events,formula one,party,sports — hannaherika @ 1:42 pm

Amber lounge is the hottest, most exclusive after party in the F1 world. It’s the party everyone’s looking forward to. With the first night race being held in Singapore, there would be one on Conrad Centennial. This event is attended by the drivers/racers, sponsors, international models and even some hollywood celebrities and musicians – gathering together to wine and dine.

I absolutely want to rub shoulders with these VIPs and meet Kimi Raikkonen up close but it costs 500 euros. Yeah, I can’t afford it for now. I just wish I could win a free pass somewhere, or someone could give me one. This definitely is an addition to my list of things-to-do-before-I-die.
