The year is about to end and it's amazing how I managed to book my weekends in December for parties, events and dates with the special persons in my life who made my 2013 memorable. I spent the second and third weekends of the month going out of town for my org's Christmas party, attending a fund raising event organized by Davao Bloggers Society, having lunch with my best friend (whom I haven't seen in a long time), bonding with Wigmore 2012, relaxing on a private resort with my law school buddies and partying with my favorite bloggers. Those were some of my 2013 moments worth-remembering.
Below is a compilation of my Instagram photos taken on those special and unforgettable days:
December 14, 2013 - Lakas Atenista Christmas Party
Right after I took my last exam for the first semester, I went to Eden Nature Park and Resort for the Christmas party of my organization in school. It was a night filled with fun and excitement. My original plan was to only stay until midnight since I needed to prepare for my event set on the following day. However, I ended up spending the night at Eden with my witty org mates. It felt good sitting with the persons I consider as second family in law school while drinking and talking about anything under the sun. My Saturday with Lakas Atenista was perfect.
Two hours of sleep was all I got and I actually didn't care. I knew I had a party to attend to on Sunday but I still chose to stay until lunch time at Eden. I wanted to take advantage of that wonderful day to get in touch with nature and make more happy memories with LA. Just like how Saturday went, Sunday was also beyond perfection.
December 15, 2013 - Davao Bloggers Society Christmas Party
Whenever I attend parties, I make it to a point that I get a good sleep the night before so I don't look haggard during the event. The DBS Dinner for A Cause for the Yolanda Survivors was an exception. I think I should get an award for being a superwoman on that day. I arrived at Davao city around 2PM, went to SM to buy makeup items at 3PM, arrived at my place around 4PM and talked with my makeup artist friend (who does not want to be named) until 5PM. Since he is a talented person, he was able to do my hair and makeup in an hour. So, I was able to attend the Davao Bloggers Society's fund raising event on time with a not-so-haggard face.
Say hello to the Davao Blogger of the Year awardee. 2012 was my year and for 2013, it is Naprey's.
After-party: We were supposed to have a coffee date at Starbucks Abreeza but the place was too crowded. We drove to Zen for quick drinks and found that it is closed during Sundays. The final destination was Cafe Demitasse which is one of the coffee shops we visit every after event.
December 21, 2013 - Good Times with Old Friends
The nice thing about having a real friend is that you will always have that deep connection even if you don't see each other everyday or go on dates like you used to do. That is the beauty of having a best friend! For the third weekend of December, my pretty bff and her boyfriend went to Davao for a quick visit. I really cancelled all my early plans on Saturday for a lunch date with them at Bulgogi Brothers.
My Saturday night was also booked for a get-together house party with Wigmore 2012, my first year classmates in law school. We spent the night reminiscing our unforgettable experiences in Ateneo. Many things have changed but our relationship with each other remained the same.
That night, we didn't only have our usual drinking and videoke sessions but also real talks about our dreams of being successful lawyers someday.
December 22, 2013 - Samal Escapade with Law School Friends x Christmas Party with Positive Peeps
The Wigmore Christmas party ended at 2:30AM and I went to bed at 3:00AM. That means I had only three hours of sleep for that Saturday because I woke up at around 6AM to get ready for my beach outing with some of my loves in law school.
Samal Island. Summer in December. Noontime drinking games.
The year-ender event with these people was also beyond perfection. I had so much fun. Oh, memories!
My superwoman powers was unleashed again as I prepare for the Christmas party with my PP or FW friends. I arrived at Davao city at around 5PM and reached my place in just thirty minutes. Then, I allowed myself to rest for my 7PM party.
Quoted from my Instagram account: Another "Walang Tulugan" night with the best blogger friends ♥ To PP/FW loves, thank you for making my 2013 memorable :) Excited for 2014 with you! More events, opps, coffee dates, tours, projects, parties, blog workshops... I love you all! Bahala wala pay tulog since last night, basta lang maka-Christmas party with you :*
