Ni Hao!






Yesterday marked another contribution to the fairytale endings that we tend to expect and see from our  local television shows.The series is none other than the highly popular,My Binondo girlAfter five months of being garnering huge support from viewers all around the world, it has come to an end.


Although the series has strong and weak points, I admit that I am a fan of the series even if it manifests the predictable plot in a way that anyone can actually know how it would end from the very beginning of the show.Let me start with my observations on none other than, the binondo girl herself, Kim Chiu. Anyone who hasn't heard of her name must have been living inside a cave  because she's one of the most popular and well-loved actresses that the showbiz industry has today.From being the simple bubbly chinita girl from her PBB days, she has come such a long long way and made her name for herself.But that does not stop anyone from calling her retokada.If this is true or not, you  be the judge.Her appeal comes from the very core that she embodies someone who should play the traditional actress that the media implicates for the longest time--- the sweet protagonist.And in her recently concluded television series, it comes no surprise that she played the same role that is expected from her.Honestly, I may not be the biggest fan when it comes to her acting performance since she would have to act more naturally,but that does not stop me from actually liking her .Is it me or is  does she really have the sympathy of the Filipino mass because she seems to be genuinely  innocent and kind in real life amidst having her heart truly broken, or as what Xian Lim would say,'naputulan ng pakpak', caused by her former on and offscreen love partner(he who must not be named haha)?

The show was also able to manifest different excellent actors.Richard Yap who played Papa Chen played his role very well that at times, I thought of him being Papa Chen in real life.Just to give you a little bit of trivia, when I was out eating at Chwoking last week, I was surprised to find out that Richard Yap was the model of the fast food chain and I only notice it know because of his newfound fame!(Haha).Cherry Pie Picache was amazing, as expected.Ricardo Cepeda, another great actor added to the drama of the show's entirety.After all, what's a series without antagonists who would be giving difficulties to our binondo girl?Before I forget, I truly believe that Laureen Uy was also a revelation and that she proved that she is not only a great fashion blogger, but is also a good actress.Lastly, the number one achievement among all of the things that the show was abel to produce would be the birth of THE KimXi loveteam.Thanks to this series, Xian Lim was able to attach "actor" to his profession,more than just being mreley a hot model and a talented musician ( He plays almost all of the instruments, I think.)

From the looks of it, it appears that we are still expecting the fantasy to be brought into the real life. There is this strong urge of anticipation to  see the actor and the actress that we like,hoping that they would actually end up in real life.But a little thing to be considered is that although we might want them to be together so badly, we must also realize that they too have their own hearts that might seek other persons.It's just too bad showbizness is forcing a real life couple or making them seem like one just for the sake of the fans and the popularity that has to be securely fastened.So it would just be good to hope but not "force" a couple.

Going back to the television series, we can get a lot of lessons from it since all of the characters have their own stories to tell that would make anyone of us easily relate to .It was a good show for me despite being predictable( the irony).Kudos to the show since it placed great emphasis on the importance of the  family more than anything else!Also, let us celebrate because this show was also able to manifest the lives of the Tsinoys.So even if it has come to an end, let us all still happily anticipate for new drama series to come and touch our hearts,over and over again.

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!!!!!

During tuesdays and fridays, I don't have classes but that doesn't stop me from going to school since there is always a need to fulfill tasks even on my "non-working" days.Usually, I go to the library because of the required readings or I buy food at the school canteen to save money.Teeehehe

I want to thank mommy J for being my photographer for this day and the following meetings to come.I really don't know or I find it very awkward (being the awkward person I am) to pose like a fashion blogger so I need to be more comfortable when it comes to posing next time.Haha.


One of the things that I've been aspiring to do is to make a fashion blog.Although I think there are a lot of hindrances due to the lack of time, my lack of shoes and such, I believe that it's time for me to do something new this year and I love the feeling that I get when I accomplish something that I've always wanted to do.

Love,

Teacher love

It's a nice thing to have a break from all the major subjects in Literature and have something different even for a short period of time.Every monday and thursday,I struggle using the stairs up to the tenth floor of another building just to make sure I make it to my philosophy class on time.As early as now,I've already learned so many things from my professor.Whenever she says something so profound, the whole class turns silent with so much awe.She's so passionate about teaching and I love the fact that she's so energetic and so enthusiastic every meeting!Also,she has an extraordinary sense of hearing that she can hear the sound of the cockroach crawling.Phew!
Let me share with you some of the things I've learned from our discussion today.


"She is not my enemy but at the same time she is not friend."
When she told us that she was not on good terms with her stepmom, she also said that people around her have this idea that just because your not a friend of this person, you are already her enemy.The truth is that it does not work that way.We just grew up with this dualistic approach on things.We always think in terms of "either/or."For example,it's either a person is good or bad, short or tall, and so on.

"I prefer sincerity than empty politeness."
My professor hates it when students would greet her when deep inside they would actually hate her.SO instead of greeting her,it's fine with her if you just curse her.Hahah


Some love lessons....ehem

"You will not find love if you are not ready for it."
"Love is not for the faint-hearted."
"I like this guy but he doesn't know it yet."


For some reason, we got to know something about my professor's lovelife today and it was such a wonderful experience for a professor to actually relate something to students since  a topic like this would not be something  easy or "formal" to discuss during class.
She related to us that she hates it when people push her or force her to get married.She told us that its not because she's not open to the idea but it's because it has not come to her yet.Sure,she has been into relationships but she always knew that those guys who she was involved before were not going ot be the one she'll end up with.And I think the highlight of the day was when she told us her conversation with her friend which is something like this :
 Friend: Bakit mo siya gusto?May mas mga guwapo pa,mas may matatalino pa?Mas may mayayaman pa?
Prof: That I cannot argue.But the thing is, he is the one I love.

When asked about her ideal type of man:

Friend; What is your ideal man?
Prof: Just a man who knows love.


I think that everyone in her class is truly mesmerized by her.She once said that in three months,she could change our lives.Well then,I think my life is slowly starting to change because of her.Haha.I'm looking forward to our following sessions so that I can share it you!

Love,
Nikki

a way to start this year


What better way to start this new year than celebrating it with your loved ones?
Today,me and my parents went out to the newest chic hotel in town, The Oriental, in order for us to try the buffet.We first went at the hotel around six in the evening but then the staff told us that the buffet would start around seven in the evening!So we grabbed the chance to come back home and get the camera for us to take lotzza pictures.hihi




blurry pic but i love d pose

I make the most awkward poses ever when I'm not taking my own pictures!

stolen








I badly need exercise now.Haha
I think it's pretty obvious that I'm dedicating more posts with lots of pictures on it and I don't know if it's a bad thing or a good thing but it's just that the situation calls for it.

On a last note, I just wanted to share this very short video of mine taken during this event.Hahah
