The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

How was your Halloween?

Mine was tiring but especially fun. You see this year, the IMS costume contest ballooned into a company wide (well at least this branch of the company) competition, with different departments all participating. I was part of the organizing committee and may I say, that is a fun group of people to work with. And even if it was a lot of work (and red tape gah) it turned out quite well. I loved several costumes (mine was hardly a costume, it was my debut dress and Anna lent me a lei) in particular:

Guitar Chic came as her Alter ego:pink

Karlo came as John Lennon (what can i say im a beatles fan): lennon

And of course there was (Yarrr) Jack Sparrow:sparrow

Breakfast at Tiffany’s done beautifully: holly

Jack (Bripman!) and Ennis (RCB) from Brokeback Mountain were also present:

A Hogwarts student came by: gryffindor

And the Joker slipped in: joker

There were a lot more interesting costumes but I’m too lazy to find decent pictures. 🙂

Went to an afterparty at Music21 where we ate, sang, even danced the night away(well at least they did). And after being hostaged and dragged to Guilly’s (the nearest place to Music 21 we could think of) i dragged my tired tuchus home at 1am.

So that’s why i slept the whole way home to Bataan, and only got up coz i heard the call of breakfast. I stuffed my face, then to stave off boredom (my sister was asleep, the kids were playing Wii and I didn’t have a controller for myself, my other cousins hadn’t arrived yet) i went to help with the making of the bouquets for the cemetery. One thing i learned, I have no talent for making bouquets. None at all. Even if it was simple sticking stems into floral foam, i managed to make three of the most sorry-looking flower arrangements I’ve seen. Needless to say, when my cousins found out I was helping, they laughed their butts off and proceeded to rank the three ugliest arrangements and deemed it mine. (Sad to say, they were right)

Going home to Bataan only means one thing: FOOD TRIP. And that’s what we did.

So I’m back in Manila now, heavier but happier.

Back to work!
