Rock-rockan na!

It's one in the morning and I just came from our office Christmas party. I should be heading home, with my aching feet and tired eyes, but I just had to say--THAT WAS ONE ROCKIN' PARTY!!! We had Hale, Kamikazee (panalo!), Sugarfree, AND Sandwich!!!

It doesn't even matter that I didn't win the trip to China or the P10,000. Almost.

P.S. My cam died at the start of the party! Damn. But then not having a cam forced me to focus more on rockin' out than on capturing the moment!

Update (Dec 27, 2007)
I've just been stealing pics off of people's multiply sites. Haha. The pic above is from Candice. I can't say I'm a fan--sorry! But I don't mean I don't like them--but had this taken for my BFF. Haha. It was a high-school-themed party so there I am in my English prep school outfit.

And so it begins

Well, almost.

As his Christmas present to me, H agreed to pay for and help with my room re-do. So on Saturday, we shall begin by stripping the wallpaper off my walls. Neither of us knows how to do it, but I'm sure one of my trusty back issues can clue us in (and there's always the ever-dependable net!). The week after, we shall attempt to paint. "Hindi ako marunong ha," warned H. To which I replied, "The point isn't perfection." I reassured him by telling him to think of it as practice for our future house. He didn't seem convinced.

I have to find time to go to Bangkal to hunt for an old side table that I could rework, buy me that Tord Boontje lamp (if it's still available), and get a new bedspread. In my initial draft of my room's layout, my bed was in a new position, and a reading chair would be placed in a corner--although knowing me and my room's history, the chair shall become a receptacle for my bag. I've decided against the layout after reading up on Feng Shui principles (I had to for a racket). There's only so much I could do, layout-wise, given that I have built-in shelves, a wall of cabinets, and two doors to consider. I dunno, maybe I shall tempt Fate and favor aesthetics over Feng Shui. Or maybe not.

The reading chair was supposed to come from my mom's room--an antique-y, elaborately carved, wooden chair with dusty white cushions. It comes with an equally elaborate desk. I wanted to play around with the chair, paint it white and re-upholster it in a funky fabric. But I'm not sure mumsy will be too happy about losing a chair in her bedroom...

I bought a steel tape measure over the weekend, and tonight I shall attempt to use it. Time to measure my room and figure out how much paint I'm gonna need.

They have that on the net, don't they?

I lifted the pic off of this website.
