The Magic Lives...

Enchanted Kingdom! Wheee~ It's been so long since I visited this happy place! I think I was in High School when I first came here and conquered the Swan Lake and Jungle Log Jam. Hahaha~ I came here last week with my colleagues at work! What I love about my job is bonding time with people. Movies, parties, and now... a visit to a theme park!  (^_^)

Welcome to EK!

Of course, we all have that friend who likes to take it to the extreme! EK has four extreme rides, uhm, I hoped I could survive the day. Hahaha! But anyway, as a warm up, we first rode bumper cars. It was good old fun!

Beside the bumper cars is the EKstreme Tower. Yep, you guessed it! Extreme rides here we go! Hey, I got a really nice photo before the take off...


Getting ready for take off...
But ugh... I looked quite the opposite after the ride. Why? Well, just see for yourself...



Woah~ That was extreme, isn't it? Oh no~ Nothing could prepare me for the next. Anchors Away seemed like nice and it wasn't even tagged as an 'extreme ride'. At first, I didn't believe my friend who said that it wouldn't be a smooth ride. But I do now. Waaaaa~ My insides felt like it was going out or something. I couldn't control my legs from trembling. Half way through, I wanted to quit, but the pirate ship just kept on moving. Noooooo! 



After that traumatic and unforgettable extreme Anchors Away, my friends and I decided to stop by for lunch. However, I was in an adrenaline rush and I didn't feel any hunger at all. So I decided for a light snack, instead. The food in LaunchTime restaurant tastes great! 


My pasta for lunch. Yummy!
So after those extreme rides, we decided the next to be a bit more chill. Ferris Wheel it is! Yay! The wind on your face plus a nice view of the sunset equals the "wow" factor. Two thumbs up!


The Ferris Wheel is EK's highest point.

After chilling for a few minutes, we took another extreme ride. I mean double extreme! We queued up for EK's famous attraction, the Space Shuttle. Hesitation took over me when I saw how scary it was. But then again, my good friends just wouldn't let me leave. Huhuhu~

The Space Shuttle proved that I could conquer my fears. I could feel the wind on my face and the twists and turns. It took me to an extreme experience like never before! I'm happy that my colleagues pushed me to do it. To be honest, Anchors Away was a scarier ride. Hehehe~ (^_^)v

Okay, but after Space Shuttle, I didn't want anymore extreme rides. Hahaha~ While some of us queued for the Disk-O-Magic, I went for the classic no hassle, no scare ride in the Carousel. Happy times!

Then, we stopped by and watched the parade! Here is the cute EK mascot dancing! 





With a splash of colors the fireworks gave on the night sky, we ended the day with a bang! It was a very ecstatic day for us. The rides, extreme or chill, gave us memories to laugh and to cherish. Enchanted Kingdom sure is a happy place and the magic stays with you, forever.

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
