10 Things I love about McDonald's

Rating: ★★★★★

Ever since I was a little girl, my Tatay and I would always walk down our neighborhood back in Manila and go to one of my favorite place. A place where I get hype every time my eyes can spot that yellow fries like letter "M". Yes! I've been a fan of McDonald's every since. Through the years, it's been a part of me as I make tons of memories with my family, friends and even with my "special someone". Truly, this is not just an ordinary fast food chain because there are just things that you'll definitely love about McDo more than just it's tag line.

  1. Happiness in a box. Well every child, even those in their mid 20's and up still really finds happiness in every red box that McDonald's. There are even instances that they just tend to order tons of meals just to collect and avail the toys it offers. I remember having my own shelf when I was little and still make my Tatay and Yobo buy me one up to now. 
  2. Ronald McDonald and friends. Well, I'm not really a fan of clowns nor I get excited every time I spot those colorful and "give-me-a-hug" mascots. It just gives me the goose bumps, but to some they truly enjoy playing with them and enjoys taking tons of shots being with them. So much childhood feels as they say. 
  3. Creamy Sundae with Hot Fudge. I usually enjoy just having a cup of sundae. Not only is it affordable, it is also not easily melted. That's why one can enjoy his/her meal without worrying that the dessert will vanish.
  4. Fries and tons of fries. Well every one goes gaga over fries and I can;t deny I am one of the club as well. The fun thing about their fries is that it goes well with my sundae. I just like dipping in it. The way the sweetness and the saltiness rules over my tongue is just blissful.
  5. Gravity feels with Coke Float. It was indeed a a hit, when McDo launched their new set of twist when it comes to beverages. Sundae on a drink. Definitely one of my faves. I also enjoy every time they would create different flavors as well depending on their motif matching their happy meals. 
  6. McDonald's ads and TVCs. Who would ever forget the most hit McDo commercial in the Philippine TV, "Eto ay para kay Gina." ("This is for Gina"), "Karen po." ("It's Karen")? Well it was indeed one of the best ones. How about the little baby who was swinging in their house that giggles when she spots the yellow letter "M" and cries when she doesn't? How about the one where a guy had his first date with his crush and asked only a hundred from his Dad? The "El Bimbo" story and just so many more. They just truly leave a mark. (You can try watching some at Youtube.)
  7. Mouth savoring burgers! Well since McDonald's is very Western. It truly justifies the burger taste it claims as well as the size it declares. When I mean by size, it would really take 4 to more bites before you can eat it a whole burger. 
  8. Cheaper and affordable. Where every one wants to eat something where they can enjoy not only the food but also leave their wallets smiling as well. They offer their meals in very reasonable prices and as well as offers "upgrades". One really can enjoy his/her meals.
  9. Lovin' Red. Well, since my favorite color now is red, it just gives me more reason to love this place. Their mark of catching attention of that flammin' hue just gives that sizzles chills. (That's why tons of restos goes for this shade. I know you can name a few. *giggles*)
  10. Memorable McDonald's taglines. Every merch has their own tagline, but McDo was definitely nailed it when they had one. You'll definitely love them. "Love Ko 'To" truly suits it. What is amazing about this is that they also have it different languages but it has only one meaning. Cool right?

Truly McDonald's will always be a part of me not just when I was a kid but 'til today. And I will definitely make more memories with it. But always remember and bare in mind, that too much love will kill you. At least indulge in this place once in a while. Fast foods are still fast foods as they say. So one must still manage to have the balance and healthy food and exercise as well. Just a friendly reminder from a friend that cares. 

How about you? What do you love about McDonald's? ☺

Note: Photos of McDonald's redbox and happy meals are not mine. I just tweaked it. 

Portfolio 02: Photoshoot

I am really a Frustrated model. I just like taking photos of me in a more different level of selfies. What I meant to say a different way, is that I tend to like posing or have this certain motif when I try to have a shot of myself. And since I am starting to pose to some friends and acquaintances that I am starting to almost make a career out of it - just kidding. 

So when my friend/co-worker, Ton asked me and my other friend/co-worker, Liz to be his models for a fun shoot that we didn't had second thoughts, immediately agreed to it. We also had a bigger help from another friend, Vet to make this activity a success. And proudly to say it was! Here are some of the shots Ton took.

Sunshine Blog Award Vol. 01

It's nice to be appreciated once in a while, specially when people compliments you as well as encourages you be the best of what you can be. Thank you so much Bee for nominating and tagging me as well. I've known her since my college days, but since we are not in the same class, we didn't really get the chance to know personally. We both took up Nursing, but we still do what we really passionately love more than it. She's quite an awesome person as well. This is made my day today and would definitely make the day of others as well.

Since I've been piling my posts as well and don't know what to post yet, this is quite very interesting to start with.

So here out is goes. 

10 Things I Love About My "Tatay"

Add caption
My doodle greeting to Tatay

I've always been close to my father and always been spoiled by him. My sister and I would always argue who is the best Daddy's girl and would always have fights to has the right or the turn to hold our father's hand whenever we get to have our family days. Yes, we do take turns. We also like calling him "Tatay" rather than the usual. He has always been our king and has always treated us his little angels even when we are already in our woman phase. He never fails to bring the baby in us and never fails to give us more standards to our future husbands. 

Since my Tatay is in Manila today, I just made a simple doodle greeting for him. And this are the times how I envy my sister because she gets the chance to spend the day with him today. That's why I come up with this post to who he is and what I love about him to show how much I am blessed as well.


A DAUGHTER'S FIRST LOVE. Yes, it might be cliche but the truth is, it is. It's not that we expect too much from our boyfriends or to our "future husbands", its just that our Tatay treated as much than we could possibly expect that he set a high standard on how we would like be treated as well. I am a princess indeed because my father is a king. It will never fade and it will definitely something that can't be replace by someone even if he is the most handsome guy or his Mr. Perfect. 
THERE FOR YOU NO MATTER HOW BAD OF A MISTAKE YOU'VE MADE. Tatay has always been there to make sure that no matter bad or worst has been my mistakes he always assure me and my sister how his love for us will never change. He might angry or scold us, but that is just a reminder on how he worries for us - so much. That's why he will never leave us no matter what the cause arises.
STAND UP FOR YOU WHEN YOU NEED HIM. His like a the "Great Wall of China" or the shield of "Captain America", that he is willing to endure any pain that he has shun so that we will be able to be strong when the time comes that we needed him. My family has been a lot of trials, but it never stopped my Tatay on showing how much he is willing to make the foundation firmer. 
GIVE YOU THEIR HUGS AND SHOULDERS TO CRY ON. My Tatay has been one of those who never failed to make me feel the love when I had my first failed exam, first wound, and my first heartache and whatsoever trials in life that comes. He has always made his shoulders available so I can make tears flow like a waterfall as well as those warm hugs to assure that I am not alone and will never be.
PROMISES YOU THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HIS LITTLE GIRL. He never fails this one. Even when I am 23 years old, every time my Tatay would give me a phone call (since he is in Manila right now), my voice would always change to it's childish form and starts baby talking. Yes, it might be childish but this how my Tatay really communicates and I just feel I am his baby forever - and will always be. 
LOVES YOU SO MUCH AND WILL SACRIFICE WHATEVER IT IS TO MAKES YOU HAPPY AGAIN. He always assures that we are always happy and always thinks of our state before himself, even when times comes that he almost has nothing, it is fine with him as long as my sister and I are provided of things we need and want. His love for us is more than he can possibly give. I also admit to myself that I somewhat adopted this trait from him that it is okay for us to be just happy, what matters most to us is making the ones special top us happier as much as we can give them. 
IS A NUMBER ONE FAN. He has always been my number fan even when I'm not at my best. He is one of my best cheerers when I'm doing something I'm good at and when I am doing something that I really love. He always inspire me to be more than what I could possibly do and what I can be. 
NEVER GIVES UP ON YOU. I am a hard-headed type of person that I may listen but what I want still prevails, no matter what. But Tatay never failed and never gave up one me whenever I'm going in a wrong path specially. He has always been my strength as well to keep going a midst the frustrations and trials ion life. He will always there to give me hope and see the morning in a shiner and brighter day. 
BONDINGS. I grew up with a family who loves cuddling in bed and making our bonding moments every time we get the chance. We always laugh out loud and just finds happiness with the little things. 
HIS CUTE DANCES & SONGS. This is my sister's favorite about our Tatay. He is fond of making his own renditions of dance steps, songs and as well his very own lyrics. He is just a funny man, who really has a good sense of humor that never gets old even when we are. He really knows where to tickle us and make us laugh randomly.

These are just some things that I love about my Tatay and it will never be enough to describe how much he has done for me and my family as well as to the people he touched as well. That's why I will never trade him for any other man to be my father and my first love, because no one can take that away from me no matter what.

As for my Tatay, "I love you forever and always. Hope you'll never get tired of loving us and making me one of your baby girls and little angels. Thank you for everything, I would have been what I today without you. I love you Tatay, it is not just for today but as everyday is another chance for me to love you, Nanay, Bing and Tutty more and more. Will forever be your slugo."

As for the other Dads, Papa, Paps, Fathers and Dadas out there, I know that every child has the same feelings and thoughts the way I cherish my Tatay. You've done a good job because some of them are very thankful and loved you more as well. Thanks to you.

Happy Father's Day once again. Enjoy your day with your Dad! Give him a hug, a kiss or have a date with him. Today is his day and I hope it will not just stop there.  Have a nice day and I hope you will have a great day ahead with him. I can wait to hear how it goes. Enjoy and God bless. ♥

Filed-ing Yourself: Be Simpli-Filed

Rating: ★★★★★

I've always been anxious when my things are not organized or something is not in its rightful place. Maybe this because I'm a Type A Personality. Yes, proud and loud to be an OCPD in a rate of 7-9 - so far. Sometimes being codified is not much of a perks. I usually tend to want everything going in my way, yet getting frustrated because it is never enough. Until everything changed when I found the answer. 

I got to know FILED from my sister  last 2013, and how I wish I've known them way back when I was still a student. It would have been a more "fun studying school years" and could have been handy when I was reviewing for my board examinations as well. Ever since, I've been hooked to it and my sister are just their babies as well as "self proclaimed FILED Ambassadors" in our own ways.

I totally fell in love with all of the hues and prisms that are available. The Flamin' Red, Magma Orange, Sunburst Yellow, Funky Green, Electric Blue, Hot Pink, and Midnight Black. Since my fave color is red, all of my goodies from Filed are def Flamin' Red.

FILED! Doodle Planner. This is the very first product that I got from them which my sister gave me. This has always been part of my life as well for it holds every events, schedules and memoirs as my year goes. I've featured this one in one of my posts [x].
FILED! File Folder. Ever since FILED entered my life, opportunities comes as well. My important documents are kept here in a more organized way. Not only that, I got this product from them. Yes! Aren't they the best! They became my sponsor (my very first) which I am very blessed. Not only they give you good quality products but as well inspires every individuals to be their best. Review [xProduct [x]
FILED! Pen Capsule. This one is from my sister as her gift for me and since I've been "non-stop-reminding-getting-in-her-nerves" to get me this one. It nice to place your pens in a way that you can easily access them and they never get out of place inside. There's also a surprise about this one because this is not just your ordinary pencil case. It's Pen Capsule [x]! 
FILED! Moodi Plushy. This cute plushy is indeed adorable, which I got from joining their "Doodle for the month" from my planner. They also give Moodi monster to those who buy their planners. [x]
FILED! Pocket Wallet. I've been dying to have this one when after they launched these sometime in April. They also added a twist to this product that it was their best selling product for this year. I also can't wait to have this baby because it's red! [x]
FILED! Link Notes. This one was my prize which I got when I joined the #FILEDTop31 for they newest campaign for this school year. They really overdid and it was a success to empower more students as well as professional to be a Topnotch in their own ways. [x]

Celebrating Life At 23

Last 7th of June, Yobo just turned 23. Yes, he is a year and months younger than me, but that wouldn't be any hindrance in our relationship or whatsoever because they are just numbers.

 Happy Birthday, Yobo!

Since I wanted it to be somewhat different from last year's surprise, I told myself that I needed to somewhat level it up and make it more special for him. Since last year was not so much of what I've came up for his special day. So I decided to make a sketch of him and me. And the twist side is that it shows how our names really matches. Isn't it amazing?

Surprise Yobo!!

Birthdays will never be the same without those greeting cakes and candles to blow so I planned to surprise him as he enters our house. He kept saying that he needed to pee first, but I insisted on blind folding him or else the plan will be blown. So he just kept nagging what was I up to, while I was giggling. So as I brought up the surprise, he just kept saying "Thank You" and "I love you" on and on.

He really loved the sketch that I made and he kept on laughing how he ended up so handsome in the sketch, and I told him the power of art because we can look good the way we wanted to be, just kidding. But I was happy indeed because everything went as planned. After the surprised, we had a simple dinner at our all time favorite, Wacky's Resto Bar. There we had his favorite Beef Stroganoff and we get to try their Pork Steak for a change, and they never fail to surprise us again because it was as delicious as any other meal they serve at a cheaper price.
