Complete!

>> Monday, March 17, 2014

A few days after the Amoranto shoot, we met up again as if we didn't miss each other. Nah. Nope. I don't miss them. Ugh, I'm sick of their faces. Ew. Yuck.

Halabyooo fronds.

Finally, we were complete! Edlyn's been living on the other side of the metro after getting married last January. Her schedule was free that day so we stole her from her wife-y duties for a couple of hours to hang out like college students. It was also Jace's opportunity to shoot Edlyn. Not with a gun, mind you.

Cerz also remembered to wear something locally made so that she, too, can be shot.

Bang!

As usual, we didn't follow our plan. For an hour or so we were distracted with the puzzle that we left abandoned the last time we hung out. Because sorting was done, we were able to sit down and put the pieces together. We got crossed-eyed from trying to figure out which colors and pieces fit together until we were able to accomplish 98% of the edges.

Edges! Look, there's another puzzle box behind us waiting to be put together. (photo by Edlyn)


We just let the peak of the sun pass before heading out again. We found our shooting place at the Chocolate Kiss building along A. Roces Avenue. There weren't any people so we were able to shoot along the hallway.

I shoot Cerz, she shoots back.



Cerz is one of the writers of the recently concluded local show Got to Believe. Besides watching the show, we found entertainment in the live tweets from the fans. The fans were very passionate about the KathNiel pairing that whenever the characters would go through hardships, they would send hate tweets to Cerz and the rest of the writers of the show. They didn't know that every 8:30, we were all huddled on the FB chat, with Edlyn scrolling through the hate tweets, and us laughing/getting annoyed with the nonsense that the fans were sending. There was one time that Edlyn got fed up and replied to one of the fans who criticized Cerz's abilities as a writer. Eschooseme. Whojotinkyooarr? That started the war between her and that one passionate fan.

Soon, Edlyn coined herself as the sole member of the Kampon ni Helga.

When we met up that day, Cerz and Edlyn just had to have a photo together.


Hashtag paki-trend


I wonder what happened to the fans. After the show, we let them be and moved on to better things in life.

We're now planning our next meet-up. Every time we'd meet online (note: every day), we'd dream of the places we'd want to visit. We've gone as far as Japan and UK already in our dreams. We still have to raid Edlyn's house. That's next in our agenda and we need to settle with a good date to do that.


My gorgeous friends


Ohyeah.

Sunny Day at Amoranto

>> Wednesday, March 05, 2014

EXT. DRIVEWAY - DAY

A GROUP of students plays on the driveway, blocking anyone from passing.

Suddenly, they stop upon seeing HIRO approach, a local celebrity who hosts a late night show.

STUDENT
(whispers audibly)
Uy, si Hiro.


The rest of the GROUP stares and gapes as HIRO passes by. His PA and other COMPANIONS walk with him, as they walk towards the parked car after a photoshoot.

STUDENT 2
(suddenly sings, as if to break the awkward silence)
Oops, I did it again.


HIRO, his PA and other COMPANIONS keep quiet and pretend to ignore the situation. Once they enter the car that is parked at the side, they burst in laughter and in song.

CUT TO - ACTUAL BLOG ENTRY

That scene pretty much summed up our afternoon last February 25. Jace had scheduled a shoot for Pinoy Threads and the rest of us tagged along. We also used that time to hang out and destress from the bad vibes life had been giving us.

Hehey, I missed taking photos. Bring it on.


If you need a place for your deep thoughts, this is the place to be

This is for all her haters who bash her and her co-writers every night


Jihan's hyper 3-month old puppy, Momo. He also loves to chew on your shoes.

Even if we almost melted under the heat of the sun, we still had fun. We ended up in Jihan's place, our feet at the mercy of Momo's chewing spree, while we started on the puzzle that Jace gave her as a housewarming gift. Little did we know that a few days after, we'd meet up again, this time with Edlyn around. But that's for another entry.

This feels like college all over again. I like it.

Edlyn gets married

>> Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Wait, what?

Ya read right. Our dearest Edlyn who used to avoid hugs and any form of cheesiness crossed the bridge and became the opposite of anti-contact. She now gives hugs, and not just any other hug. Think big and cuddly hugs. And to complete the cheese factor, she gets married.

Cue squeals.

The events in January leading to the BFF's big day were chronicled in doodles.


1. Guise, guise. How do you bridal shower?



The usual bridal shower did not happen. Since we're a hundred percent sure that Edlyn will kill us if we bring in a stripper, her sister suggested that we did a karaoke session instead. It was a perfect teamwork, Edlyn's siblings devised a plan to bring her to the karaoke place (reason: family dinner), while the rest of us reserved the place and did the inviting.

It was such an unusual bridal shower because the groom was there and boys were allowed to join us. It was more fitting to call it a pre-wedding than a bridal shower. Since the invitation was done on a short notice, only a few came. lol but at least each period of Edlyn's school life had a representative.


2. The Wedding Weekend
The week leading to the wedding weekend was such a blur. In all excitement, my mind wandered to what could happen during the wedding weekend. I'm surprised that I was able to concentrate with whatever I had to during the week.

Cerz and I checked-in at Richmonde hotel, the same hotel where both Edlyn and Jon stayed, the day before the wedding. We had the whole day to frolic and we used that day to bond. We invited Jihan over for a dip in the hotel pool. Edlyn dropped by our room too for a short chit-chat in the afternoon. Girl time!




Slappy Cakes is expensive. hahaha

We were up the next day at 6:30 AM to have breakfast and prepare. THIS IS IT PANSIT!




All dolled up for our bridesmaids' duties! (photo by Cerz)


We hung out at Edlyn's room after checking out for the pre-wedding shoot. Edlyn's dad was giving out funny remarks regarding all the fuss that happens before a wedding. It's true, a bride can never get dressed in peace. From the make up to putting on the dress, to wearing the shoes are documented in video and photo. They took hours to get everything recorded. I'm sure if the cameras weren't there, Edlyn would be dressed in 30 minutes. lol. But it's her big day, so the big fuss was allowed.

Good thing the hotel was just minutes away from the church. Even if pre-wedding shoot ran late, the wedding started on time.



All wedding pictures are from Jace's camera. I brought a camera but of course I couldn't lug a huge ass camera with me while walking down the aisle.


My mum was one of the principal sponsors






OMGEDLYNISSOPRETTY. When she reached the middle part of her walk, I started to tear up. LAWLZ.


We all cheered when the much-awaited kiss happened. Because why the hell not? Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the kiss. We'll just wait for the official photos from Ruffa.

The celebration continued at Gazebo Royale, where all the fun happened. Let's just say that what happened at Gazebo will remain in Gazebo. I think the friends had the most fun, especially during the games part.

Quincy took over my camera because most of the time, the entourage (me included) was dragged into things we weren't expecting to do. But we did it anyway for the love of the bride and groom. The following photos are a mix of my shots and Quincy's.


Cerz and Chika


Quincy and Jihan


Mitch and Geopet Peter




Table 17 rules! We were one of the winners of the guess-the-song game. :D


The newly weds. YIHEE.





Edlyn and Jon's law friends are total nutheads. You wouldn't think that they are lawyers because they were so game to make a complete fool out of themselves. They were the life of the party.




The epic macarena dance off


The look of victory on Jace's face when we were eliminated from the singles' game. This is the part where I am not allowed to speak about the fate of the pair that "lost." HAHAHAHA


Before Jon took off the garter from Edlyn's leg, the guys joined in for a semi sleazy dance.






BFFs! (photo by Jace)


It was such a happy day. It was that day when I saw Edlyn smile the biggest. We were happy to see her happy and full of love. We could see how much Jon and Edlyn loved each other and we were grateful to be part of that memorable moment of their life. It was the start of a new life together, as husband and wife.

I'll update the post when the official photos come out. For now, enjoy the same-day edit video that sums up the whole wedding. Congratulations Edders and Jon! We love yooouuuu.
