Week 2: Deutschland

Ahhh Germany! There's no use in hiding this love of mine for Germany. I think what you guys don't know is that I know how to speak a little German, a few basics, since I'm quite obsessed with German people. They rock.

Brandenburg gate
With its Romanesque structure, was modeled to look like the ancient gateway to the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. I mean sure you can also find this in Greece but Germany is the place to be for me.

Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom)
This was built in the early 20th century. Not really considered a Cathedral since it has never been the seat of a bishop. 

Those examples are just two of what I want to visit when I really get there. But Germany is where Nutella all started. Everyone loves Nutella ^_^

You guys would probably hate me for this, but I'm a bit of a fan of Adolf Hitler, he may be Austrian-born, but he's a true-blooded German. I'm not trying to say that I'm with the Nazis and all, no. 

I just love Germany in general, I mean yeah sure I'm a Filipina, but I were to choose where I'd live; I'd choose Germany hands down.

DEUTSCHLAND for the win!
Over and out!!

Week 1

Teenagers with raging hormones tend to be overly-emotional when it comes to falling in love and heartbreak. 
I've been there, but I'm okay, I'm still awesome. 
First things first, us girls would often think of our crushes as 'the one' but what sucks is REALITY. It's always there to slap you in the face that the guy you like fancies someone else or is taken. Taylor Swift's songs are very helpful.

Remember my blog post about McFLY? Yeah well they're the ones to listen to if you're feeling bittersweet about someone you secretly like. Also, if you feel heartbroken.  I personally think 'Bubblewrap' is one of the most bitter songs I've listened to. Apart from Adele's songs, man she's bitter. 

But anyways, back to bittersweet, Ever heard of THE CLICK 5? Well yeah they disbanded but nevertheless, their songs were my middle school jam. 'Just the Girl' is simply one of the cutest bittersweet songs ever. I suggest you listen to it readers. The song is found below this post.

A ROCKET TO THE MOON, I mean come on, these guys are amazing, and this band was introduced to me by a good friend of mine Celina, who's a massive band girl. She's cool.... but I'm cooler... tssss. Seriously though their song 'She's Killing Me' is pretty sick, I love it half to death. 

THE CAB. They're undeniably amazing, words can't describe how cute their songs are, and trust me, you'll fall in lalalalalove with their songs especially in their 'Symphony Soldier' album. 'La La' their second single from the album, and it's somehow a bittersweet song. Listen to it, it's pretty remarkable.

Technically, falling in love is normal for us teens, and the songs we listen to, whether it's Indie, Pop, Alternative, Rock or any other genre, they all speak about what we are and how we truly feel, and pretty much most of 'em would send messages of love. 

So here they are, Bittersweet love songs that I suggest you people need to listen to. :)

So that's my blog post of the week. Stay tuned for more. :D

Mainstream bad vibes

Hola! It's been a while since I've opened my blog. I miss it so much!!
So as you all may know, it's summer here in the Philippines and things are heating up. (literally)

Ever since the start of my summer holiday, I didn't have much time to use the internet and I've been M.I.A. for a few days 'cause we went to Baguio.

But from the title of my latest post, which is this one, I am going to share to you my opinion when it comes to Mainstream mania. Basically, I hate mainstream things, such as aztec tank tops, colorful shorts and people wearing sunnies even inside the mall. I absolutely despise this mainstream madness, I find it sickening.

A little tip for you readers, BE DIFFERENT. There's nothing wrong in being unique, you get to see the real you once you be the difference in this blunt world. I'm not asking you people to be a hipster or something, but what the human race is lacking is this thing called ORIGINALITY. The people on earth, they want to be different, but they can't because there are 7 billion people on this planet trying to be different, but it turns out, they can't 'cause in the end, they're all just the same, commoners.


I'm not praising hipsters or anything, but what I like about them is that they're the change they want to be in this blunt planet we are living in. There's nothing wrong with being different, as long as you are yourself, you're different already, so dig a little deep, don't stand on a common ground, spread your wings and show to them how different you can be, because beauty lies within.

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
-Mahatma Gandhi

P.S. Hipsters do dress up nicely, to be honest :D

Auf Wiedersehen!

Intramurals 2013

It's been a while! Finally updated my blog.
Even if  Sir stated that blogging for grades isn't required anymore, I'll still blog for my sake. HAHA. K.
Life's been great ever since the start of classes. Been studying actually, praise the Lord, I rarely study, but I pass my subjects, so it's fine.

Our Intramural 2012-2013 just ended, and we won.....along with Tribe B. Our names derived from the words Life (elementary) and Listen(High School) in different dialects. We also had different colors for the different tribes.

Tribe A: Des Leben/Zuhoren (Yellow; German)
Tribe B: Luwindig/Luister (Red; African)
Tribe C: Leven/Aanhoren (Purple; Dutch)
Tribe D: Vita/Ascoltare (Orange; Italian)
(c) Ng Shannon Juada
You could probably now hunch that I'm from Tribe C. We shine bright.... like a diamond! (PUSHAK) it's an inside thing, you guys won't get it. HAHA.

We also won in our tribe presentation which was an amazing feeling because we finished our dance, on the day before the FINAL tribe presentation. 

"Gwapa gyapon" - Tribe C's cheer-up line.

Don't we look amazing? Haha. The spirit of Intramurals will never fade away, because it was a week full of excitement, victories, losses, and most especially memories that will never be forgotten. I have to admit it, it was on the best Intrams ever.

Land of of Albino bears

Yes yes, there were no real bears, sadly. However, there were white bears... Albino bears I call 'em.
My family decided to take a dip on a cold December day.

The main purpose of our outtings; was for my uncle who was assigned in Sydney. He's a priest, he ain't got nobody else with him. (That sounded too..... street-ish)

There loads of people wearing bikinis and sarongs and stuff. It was raining so we didn't have much to do but swim and eat. 

After that long day, of eating and drinking, we decided to take loads and loads of photos, but I'm not going to share them, they're a bit embarrassing. HAHA.

That's all for now. 
Over and out! Xxx
