So I'm a sucker for these things

...and I obviously don't have much to do. Well, that's a lie. There are a few things that need to be done, but then there's also this beautiful thing called "later."


What did you do in 2006 that you’d never done before?
-- Go aborad by myself! Take a trip with Hamil, as in just the two of us.

Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for this year?
— No resolutions last year. This year, I've resolved to get my fourth-year body back. Kind of. I think I can, I think I can...

Did anyone close to you give birth?
— Yes! My sister-in-law to our darling Diego! And a good friend who had a super cute baby boy with a shock of hair on his head! Haha.

Did anyone close to you die?
— An uncle, but I can't say we were close...I mean, he was a close relative, but we didn't have a close relationship.

What countries did you visit?
— Singapore.

What would you like to have in 2007 that you lacked in 2006?
— A small waist! Haha.

What date from 2006 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
— August 29-31. The 5 Takes audition was an awesome experience.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
— Making it to the 5 Takes semi-finals. Sort of figuring out what I want to do with my life.

What was your biggest failure?
— That I wasn't disciplined enough in terms of food and my workouts. Tsk tsk. That I didn't practice cooking enough! Sigh.

Did you suffer illness or injury?
— Hmm, I pulled something in my leg and it hasn't quite gone back to normal, so it's painful to try and do splits now.:( I got hit on the head with a falling branch during a shoot in Silang. And it was so cold that I ended up getting chills and a fever afterwards!

What was the best thing you bought?
— Jeans which fit my booty just right. Haha.

Whose behavior merited celebration?
— Rene's. He demonstrated that he was an amazing friend.

Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
— Let's not name names here. Haha. It's hard when you see a friend make strange choices...

Where did most of your money go?
— Cooking class, trips, gifts, bills! Little expenses here and there that just add up.

What did you get really, really, really excited about?
— Trip to Bohol, Singapore. Cooking class.

What song will always remind you of 2006?
City of Blinding Lights. It made me realize that I could die after watching a U2 concert. Haha.

Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder? ==> Hmmm...I can't tell. Earlier this year, I think I was sadder.
ii. thinner or fatter? ==> About the same.
iii. richer or poorer? ==> Richer! (Just a tad.) But soon to be poorer when I spring for another trip...

What do you wish you’d done more of?
— Exercise self-control!

What do you wish you’d done less of?
— I was going to say "sleep," but I looooved every minute of it!

Did you fall in love in 2006?
— And the cheesy-but-true answer is, "Fell even deeper." Haha.

How many one-night stands?
— You're askin' the wrong girl! Haha.

What was your favorite TV program?
Entourage! (Can't wait for the rest of season 3!) Veronica Mars, House (I think I have a little crush on him. Haha. He really cracks me up!), Lost

Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
— Nope.

What was the best book you read?
One Hundred Years of Solitude, hands down.

What was your greatest musical discovery?
— Imogen Heap, probably.

What did you want and get?
— An iPod!

What was your favorite film of the year?
— Is it sad that I can't think of one right now? Nacho Libre? Hahaha.

What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
— Went to mass, had breakfast with mumsy, went to work, had lunch with my former co-workers (who went to my office all the way from Makati!), treated my current co-workers, then spent the evening with my girls and my man. Ate and ate and ate. Just turned 27.

What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
— If I had lost a couple of inches around my waist. Haha. If I had finished that book that I've been meaning to finish! If I had saved more money. If I had read more books.

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2006?
— Slowly turning into preppy! Haha. It's the Capricorn in me. Plus I consciously tried to move away from trends and more towards the classics. But in this office, I still look like trapo!

What kept you sane?
— Being with H. Running. Dancing.

Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
— Ari Gold, Lloyd, and Johnny Drama. Haha. Loooved their characters. James Blake (have yet to catch him in the Australian Open!).

What political issue stirred you the most?
— Zzzzzz...

Who did you miss?
— Honestly, my brother.

Who was the best new person you met?
— Ahh, that's a tough one. There's Team Philippines, Dave from Australia, Justin from Hong Kong, Vivi and Lena from Indonesia, Bevis from Taiwan...

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2006:
— God gives you what you ask for!

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
"They heard I was good, they wanna see if it's true..." Bwahahaha. "I want adventure in the great wide somewhere..." I'm bad at these relate-your-life-with-a-song questions!
