Spin’s First Romantic Movie for June

What if you had a second chance to find true love?

Here’s Sophie’s reply to Claire’s 50-year old letter to Juliet:

Dear Claire,
‘What’ and ‘if’ are two words as non-threatening as words come. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: ‘What if?’
I don’t know how your story ended.
But I know that if what you felt then was love – true love – then it’s never too late.
If it was true then it why wouldn’t it be true now?
You need only the courage to follow your heart
I don’t know what a love like that feels like…
a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for…
but I’d like to believe if I ever felt it.
I’d have the courage to seize it. I hope you had the courage to seize it, Claire.
And if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will.
All my love,

Prolly, THE sweetest romance movie I’ve seen…
What if we saw the A-Team or Knight and Day no? For sure, we wouldn’t walk out of the movie house feeling light, rejuvenated, dreamy, and… “in love”.

Thank you, maknae!


2010 Elections

May 10, 2010
Highway Hills Elementary School
Highway Hills, Mandaluyong City

Spin’s First Participation in the Philippine Elections.

Today I took part in our country’s elections for the very first time.

If I had not missed the registration back in 2004, I would have been able to vote at that time, when I was just 18.

Although I arrived at the school at a time which I considered as “early”, I took a number and I was 173rd on the line. It was number 70’s turn to vote. So I went back home and waited. Two hours after, when I got back, I was led into the room where I filled out my ballot.

It was a quick experience yet very meaningful. I voted for the one whom I thought was the best and most deserving person to rule our country. Whoever wins this race, may he, whom the majority has chosen, be able to serve his fellowmen well, under the guide of the Good Lord.


Etude House

Spin’s First time to visit the Etude House

I barely visit shops that offer beauty and skin products, thus, since its opening last December 2009, I have never entered this pretty pink store, famously known as the Etude House.

The store looks so pretty! It looks warm, fresh, girly and just pink-gay. Not only do the staff welcome you warmly, but you’ll also see a cute Lee Min Ho standee at the left side.

I heard numerous stories, various testimonials about this place — from their product line/ranges, to their awesome endorsers Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye.

My friends took me there tonight and I managed to get myself an AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot and a Black Charcoal Chin Patch plus a free hot MH folder. As a first timer, I wanted to hoard every little thing they have in there! But, I am on a very tight budget. Poor girl.

I shall invest on this. Hopefully the AC Spot would work for me.

That’s SOME ticket!

Spin’s First time to hold a bunch of tickets amounting to 72,000Php

One (1) Super Junior Super Show II Manila ticket, SVIP, costs you Php7,590… So, the tickets I’m holding right there (8 pcs.) is equal to almost 1, 556 USD

(refer to this conversion provided by XE.com’s USD to PHP converter , where 1 USD = 46.0113 PHP)

It really was my first time to hold THAT much money equivalent! O_O

Side note:
I was expecting the Manila Show tickets to be similar to the one we got at Thailand.  Like this one I’m holding in this picture… I was disappointed upon seeing the Manila version. I was expecting too much T_T

When I first got hold of this ticket, I felt like I was living in a dream, it felt surreal. The TICKET was SHINING! It was like an ATM card from our country, LOL 😛 well, since, it was also my first time to see Super Junior (see previous post) live that I had this kind of feeling!

But it doesn’t matter that much to me anymore because,


Super Show 2 BKK

Spin’s First time to see the Popular Korean group, Super Junior
(and First Visit to Thailand – First out-of-the-country trip)

November 28, 2009
Impact Arena

Everybody (i.e., ELFs from around the globe) has been talking about the big event: Super Junior’s 2nd Asia Tour. It started in Korea last July; continued in countries such as China, Thailand and will have its final stop in Taiwan on February.

Being a Super Junior fan for almost two years, I have had dreams and hoped to see them in person even if it would only happen once. My liking started with Cho Kyu Hyun, the youngest of the group. Since, that time, Taiwan’s F4 Vic Zhou was popular in the Philippines; I saw similarities between the two guys, physically speaking. Fandom and thesis before was like oil and water – really, no matter how hard I tried to combine and “enjoy” them together, I couldn’t. School won. Months after, February 2008, I went online and started on with my Kyuhyun/Super Junior fandom on my own.

Super Junior boomed to the scene after their release of Sorry Sorry – who would have expected a bunch of young, verrrrry good-looking (but a bit slender) guys to transform into gorgeous, sexy hot men? My former small hopes instantly became serious desires to see them LIVE! Thus it was decided last October that my friends and I watch the Super Show 2 live in Thailand, November 28th! My friend went thru a lot just to get us tickets to the show – contacting Thai ELFs and fellow Filipino ELFs… Luckily both connections helped us fulfill our greatest dream!

Weeks before the event, I received a phone call from one of my friends that the Thai ELF was only able to get us 800baht tickets – I felt really down… my friends could no longer hold their laughter — it was just a prank and surprisingly, we got the 4,500baht-worth seats!!!

On the night of our flight, I wasn’t sure as to what I was excited for: my first trip to Thailand or seeing Super Junior live? All I had in mind was that there was something great in store for me in that country!


Before the concert we:

  • Had a breakfast buffet
  • Converted money to Baht
  • Met fellow Filipino ELF for our SS2 tickets
  • Took the train to Mochit, cab to the Impact Arena
  • Looked around and STRUGGLED to find where the official concert goods were sold – nobody could understand English! We were able to speak to Japanese ELFs instead, haha! Thank God for JE fandom. It felt like Lee Hyuk Jae finding his way in France!
  • Gave the McDonald’s crew a major nosebleed in taking our order
  • Ate our 10-pc Nuggets meal with large fries and coke on our feet, yes, standing.
  • Bought OFFICIAL (and unofficial) CON GOODS! Shirts, flags, light sticks, bag, etc.
  • Stayed at SB (where there were fan-girl Moms in shirts that say “I ♥ SJ”, later changed into the official shirts we bought
  • Took pictures with Yamaha Fino SJ cardboards
  • Stood in line….
  • Entered through GATE 13! Destiny!

We never knew how lucky we were until we arrived at the arena… We never imagined how close we could get.

  • Took our seats and waited patiently for the show to start. The venue was filling up until you could already see the very beautiful sapphire blue sea.

SOME CONCERT HIGHLIGHTS (because everybody knows about the previous concert already)

  • Opening was a blast, everyone was screaming. ELFs were so focused on the big screen that we were all surprised by SJ’s entrance!
  • Ryeowook came out from behind our seats – inches away! Thank God we were near the aisle. He had a thick make-up on. The crowd roared – SJ members came out from everywhere!!!
  • Shindong trying to open Kyuhyun’s pants!
  • Kyuhyun’s intro was extremely smexy; Hyukjae wiped his neck and chest with a towel and threw it to fans; Leeteuk humiliated himself on the floor. :))
  • Fan chants “(SJ member’s name) Saranhaeyo (SJ member’s name)” + LT and EH chanting for themselves
  • Don’t Don – still the hottest + HanChul action
  • Donghae’s Solo w/ Eunhyuk
  • Eunhyuk’s veins on big screen
  • Kyuhyun’s English in Puff the Magic Dragon + Heechul as Puff – funniest!
  • SJ-M’s Super Girl was awesome, Henry’s really working the shades!
  • Gee – Shindong took off Siwon’s white top – Siwon wore a smaller white shirt after
  • Kyuhyun took a fan’s cellphone and took a picture of himself
  • Siwon asked if one fan and my friend were alright. They almost fell off the bleechers
  • Hyuk came up the stairs ALMOST up to where we were seated, but… you know why he was dragged back down to the stage. Kyuhyun was on the other side, to my left, reached the top of the stairs, lucky fans *cries*
  • Hyuk came back firing his water gun at us! We got wet
  • SJ singing Marry U meters away from you
  • Kyuhyun threw a fake flower which he must’ve gotten on the floor from a fan… and threw it up to where we were… only I didn’t get to catch it… the 4th girl to my left did. TT___TT
  • Yesung was the last to leave the stage.

In as much as we wanted to head to where the boys are staying thru the night, we didn’t push through since traffic was already heavy outside and it was already late. Seeing them was unbelievable. It felt surreal. It was the best night of my life (as a fan-girl, as an ELF) so far. Everything we worked hard for all paid off. Super Show 2 was an early Christmas gift for us (and an early birthday gift, for my BFF).

The next day all that was left for us to do was to shop and buy stuff for our relatives back home in the Philippines. We bought fan-made goodies like cellphone charms, mousepads, etc. and 12 Plus goodies too!

Before we took our flight back home, we had the same flight (time) with SJ-M. For the remaining members, theirs were earlier than ours. We had everything ready for autograph signing but… we didn’t get to see them for the very last time. But we were still glad the weekend happened.

Until then… Super Junior, Saranghae!
Will be waiting for Super Show 3!!!

The Library

Spin’s First time in a Comedy Bar

August 20, 2009 9:30 PM on a Friday night, I went out with my office-mates to celebrate Red’s birthday.

Okay, so I’ve always thought that comedy bars are scary and not a place for people who are overly sensitive and couldn’t take jokes seriously. Having this in mind, I honestly felt jittery and my hands became cold as I thought about what might happen inside the bar. As much as I wanted to go out with my officemates, I was thinking that the performers might pick on me and that I won’t be able to take whatever jokes they throw on me. I wanted to just go home. But since I am not a quitter, I bravely said “Yes, I’m going!”

An officemate advised us not to sit at the back part since the performers know that it’s a way to “hide” from them. But it’s also scary to sit up front, near the stage, or the sides, anywhere, I thought, was scary! HAHA! I can handle gays like they’re my girls but, it really felt different.

Inside The Library.

Upon entrance, you will see a bookshelf, of course with lotsa books. LOL anyway, we positioned ourselves near the DJ. It wasn’t really at the back part but there weren’t any space left for people to sit behind us. It was the Thursday Group’s show and I was actually excited and anxious to see what’s gonna happen next.

The performers of the night were:
Francis One word: Sayang
Gie – VERY VERY WITTY AND SMART plus she’s so pretty and charismatic
Mariko can speak Nihonggo and has the body of a girl!!! So freakin’ sexy, I tell you.
Neurie the Tarsier
The Raging Divas

So the show began with Lady Gaga’s Poker Face. My heart kept on thumping really hard. I was still very nervous that time. Right after the song, they started by telling us to order more food, else the aircon will be shut down and our tables will automatically fold up itself. Also, there should be a representative from your table who shall come up the stage and sing a song or two.  So as hours passed, lotsa guests went up the stage and all. A group of FEU students who had “cute” guys, two of them being pulled/dragged to the stage by Jerome and Paolo, made us really laugh so hard. One guest was proven to be gay, another, a lesbian. Haha

It was really fun. There was a showdown between Neurie and Echo – singing and dancing showdown, my goodness t was the most hilarious thing! Neurie fell off the stairs! Then all the performers, except for the 2 women among them had a Pageant:  Swimwear and that part where they say a line and everybody bursts out laughing.  Gahd, Mariko has the most beautiful body yet Neurie ended up winning, it was weird. Haha!

Before we left, they actually performed the Wonder Girl’s Nobody.

Generally it was a very fun Friday night for me. I was safe, or maybe because  the Thursday group wasn’t that scary at all. LOL I know they’re also humans, why would I get scared right?

Maybe you should try comedy bars too! Just to end a long, tiring week from work. ^__^
