Then my cousins and I met-up for a family meeting to discuss a special occasion happening next month. Most of the details are pretty much confidential but we are taking this really seriously and professionally. This is actually one of the rarest times we hang out without the rentz, but it was fun nyaha~!
*le sigh* Speaking of love, for the past weeks, I am thankful that Life has been mending me with a lot of care. It’s been filling my days with continued magic and happiness.
During our Friday spiritual sessions at work, our pastor told us it is not selfish if you want to make yourself happy before others. First and foremost, you have the right to be. A happy you makes a happy life. And when people see that you are genuinely a happy person, you are someone truly enjoyable and fun to be with. No one wants to be depressed and alone. I guess I have been so occupied with trying to be the perfect person for that past, to miss out on the more important thing in my life.. Me.
Yes, I am such a people pleaser (doing a fail job too, sadly) and have a constant habit of putting others before myself, esp those I love most. But this month, it was all about self-reward & giving a pat on the back saying “It’s alright, Katz. You’ll make it. You always have! You can be happy too!” And I did.. so I decided to completely forget about the past by making this video (thanks to Chesra for helping me with this): Blood+ cosplay MV</span>
It was meant to remind me of both the good times and the bad. And I promised myself, if the video no longer brings tears to my eyes.. then it means, I have moved on. Turns out, it brought tears to some friends I shared it with more than it should have with me. I’m sorry guys, I didn’t mean to.. I’m really sorry >.< But thank you, for all your sweet concerns and hugs. Thank you for just being there~! T_______T
Hookay! Enough of that, time to bring the good vibes on!! So lemme share my great adventures with our first company outing! Yes the first in 8 years, so I’ve heard haha! We spent it in the far edges of the country in an almost abandoned water park where it was said to have one of the biggest man-made waves around!
When I came back, my body ached for three days haha! All good things, all good things! The next week was Valentines and worry not, I spent it well with two precious ladies. And to think they were the ones who asked me out.. all to themselves on a day each too haha! Valentine’s eve I went out with my wonder-twin for dinner after work & to watch the Lego Movie. Can I just say.. Everything is Legen-wait for it-AWESOME-dary!!
For post-valentines since we were on such a Frozen feels hype (yes, until now), aruki and I tried the new ice-skating rink opened in SM Megamall for our date. SUPER FUN, we kept singing Let it go & kept throwing each other Frozen puns ))) “Ahhh the cold climate immerses good feeling when you are with the one you love!”
Next agenda, a few friends and I went on another field trip to the city of Pines! Where we went to attend two events happening that weekend, Penagbenga: A flower festival! We spent only a few minutes to watch the parade because it was really cold outside, so we spent more time indoors checking out restaurants to eat, shopping for boots, visited our favorite cafes (shout-outs to Azotea Greens & PNKY cafe) and constant walks in the many parks around.
And then finally, the Black Carnival: A Cosplay Promenade. It was a "Frozen adventure" indeed! And I meant that literally. While doing make-up and costume prep for the BLACK CARNIVAL on sunday, we watched Frozen in our hotel room.. TWICE haha! For random inspiration.. Why? Because this~~/o/
Yes, that's right! I got to finally debut my Arendelle!Anna. I was initially going for the winter version because my wonder twin seseostara was debuting her Snow queen Elsa (for accuracy's sake), but two friends taga-gloria and ajcrosshion insisted I pursue the Arendelle version more because they felt it was too perfect to wear for the ball! And by golly, they were right!! I have never thanked these two for scolding me coz OMG the pictures we took during the photoshoot were just~ ASDSDFJKSDKLJKLDGFHDA!! *flails arms*
Also, the hotel where the said event was held had too many beautiful areas for grand shooting opportunities!! I loved the small cosplay community here as well. Small, dramaless and nice people! Two of our closest Bagiuo friends ajcrosshion and ruiojousama took great care of us during our stay *huggles* They cosplayed a male!Elsa and the evil fairy Maleficent respectively, aren't they just fab??
I am most thankful to our dearest photogs who came all the way with us for this! MORE FROZEN PHOTOS HERE!!</span>
Everything again, was awesome! I went home tired and exhausted.. but slept with a wide grin on my face because so full of feels and what more, being in the company of great friends!
Till next blog~! :3
