nine things: tin

My friend Tin.
No words can explain how crazy fun she is! She has an absolute zest for life and happiness that radiates out of her. We have gone on countless food trips (Gloria Maris hot pot!!) and surf trips (Pagudpud!) and I'm looking forward to more. :)

Here are her nine things.

  1. I am obsessed with tinted lip balms and lip stains. As soon as I see a new one come out I just have to try it. But my all time favorite which can always be found in my kikay kit since 2004 is MAC's lip conditioner in Virtuous Violet.  It keeps my lips moisturized and a pretty shade of pink and it has a very mild yummy flavor to it. :)
  2. I cannot live without my Blackberry. Ever since Barrack Obama refused to give up his Blackberry when he was elected president, I told myself I had to get one just to see what all the fuss was about  and now I can't live without one. Of course I had to have it in pink!!
  3. I am always at the beach and one of the things i cannot live without is a surfboard. How boring life was before I started surfing!
  4. Whenever I go about during the day having lunch with my friends, buying groceries or running errands, I am most comfortable in flat open toed sandals. I simply cannot have enough of these footwear that I practically live in.  They're just so comfy and practical to wear!
  5. I hate cold weather!! Anything below 15 degrees is absolute torture for me which is why i love the tropics! We are sooo lucky to be living in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Really! I feel so blessed :) Bali in Indonesia though is a very close 2nd to my heart. The food, the culture and the SURF!!! Here's a photo of Ulu Watu. Beautiful spot!!! 
  6. One of the cheapest and quickest pick me ups is a splash of a scent that we love and one that brings a smile to my face is this lovely citrus fragrance by C.O. Bigelow in New York :)  BANGO!!!!!
  7. My all time favorite movie is one of a well planned revenge played out carefully in a emotional trial by victims of child abuse and rape. Galing ng delivery ng cast and who could've played them better than Brad Pitt, Robert De Niro, Kevin Bacon... Need I say more?? favorite movie of all time, SLEEPERS!! 
  8. There are few things that I love more than the pleasure of eating. I LOVE FOOD!!! Food brings people together, brightens your mood, has the power to nourish and destroy you, pero don na lang tyo sa nourish part :) so here's one of my favorite dishes of all time. LECHON. If you want to be my friend all you have to do is give me lechon and friends na tyo :) 
  9. AND last but not the least, there is really NOTHING in this world more important than family. The people God has put in our lives for us to love and care for whether we like it or not! hahaha Sometimes it's more torture than pleasure but really, the best, most rewarding feeling in the world is to know you have a family that loves you and will always stand by you no matter how much you fuck up (excuse my french). And even at my lowest and saddest of times, I know I am never alone for as long as I have my family and there is notthing in this universe that comes close to the feeling my family brings to my heart :)
