TBD S02 E02: Summer of 2oo7

Fontana Leisure Parks and Casino
Clark Field, Pampanga
March 2oo7

PART 1: FOOD

Remember when I told you a tradition was born after that first of summer getaway in 2oo6? This is it! An annual getaway with the people I have come to love the most! And since as college students then, we can only possibly go out of town when the semester ends and that falls right smack in the birth month of the same people - the March babies!

Ryan being one of them, being the Kapampangan who happens to be a Fontana Club Member (well, his Dad is), was forced to host the celebration! And what a grand host he was! Fontana Leisure Parks and Casino has a lot to offer but we mainly availed the basics: food, villa, pool. This is where I talk about the first basic, FOOD. We were treated to one of the grandest buffet meal I have ever been to! I was literally in food coma after the meal!

Here's what Fontana Clubhouse has to offer your hungry little tummy which will not be so hungry and little anymore after the meal! Trust me, I've been there! Indulge!

I'm guessing this was my first round plate! Steak, pasta and then some!

Here's our long table! We, of course, ended up singing 'nother birthday song for the celebrants! That's Ryan's ever sweet mom on the far end of the table. Thanks for everything, Mrs. David!

One summer can never ever go wrong when there's good food, you're with a bunch of good people, and good times rolling on every side of the corner! Works for me!

I miss having this kind of summer!

As I'm guessing this may be kind of outdated since it goes way back in 2007, to know more about Fontana Leisure Parks and Casino, click here.

I can hardly remember the details, say the name of the place we stayed in basically because it's an impromptu summer getaway right after wrapping up the semester and a sorta birthday treat for the March celebrants of the group: Rona, Romvon, Ryan! Olongapo, or Gapo, is just a 2-hour-drive by private car from Manila so we ended up renting a van for overnight use and then we bought food and drinks and other essentials to survive an overnight by the beach drama along the way!

I remember it being the first ever summer getaway of my college life. With the people I have come to love the most, TNB. We sang a Happy Birthday song to the March babies! They each had a chance to blow a candle and make a wish. Some have had too much to drink that night. Some have had to much of a laugh for a night. That's probably me. So I passed out. I just listened to them stories the morning after. And knowing TNB, for sure, all the crazy things you can thing of, and probably more!

EPIC FIRST. Then a tradition was born.

Last Scene Syndrome

My personal adaptation of the last song syndrome, only this being a particular scene (instead of a song, duh) from a TV series, movie or music video. Like a mental screen shot. I pick out a scene and it's stuck inside my head the whole day or even beyond and I'll end up replaying the scene mentally and smile stupidly to myself while at it. True story.

The Vampire Diaries
S03E18: The Last Day


That awkward moment of having an actual flashback with someone who just disappeared into thin air with someone else. When Caroline bumped into Tyler and Jules at the parking lot after leaving town together some time back.


Photobucket
(Sidetrack #1)
Tyler: How are you?
Caroline: I'm good, you? How are things with you?
Tyler: I'm hanging in there.


Tyler: I left for a reason, Caroline.
Caroline: Well, your explanation must've gotten lost in the mail, along with your goodbye.
(Here comes sidetrack #2)
Tyler: Take care of yourself.




Photobucket

Tyler: You alright?
Caroline: Yeah, I think so.
*uncomfortable silence*
Caroline: Why didn't you say goodbye? You just left.
(Hmm. Sidetrack #3 here.)
Tyler: You want to talk about this now?
Caroline: Well, if we're gonna die, I might as well know the truth. Why did you leave me?
Tyler: I knew you hated me.. I thought you deserved better than having someone like me.. in your life.
Caroline: I was hurt, you know. You turned your back on me when I needed you. But I could never hate you, Tyler.



On replay. Inside my head.

Digging Tyler Lockwood's comeback! Looove the new look! Very wolfy! Don't you think so, too?

Caroline: That witch vervained me. Tyler?

That awkward moment when you're about to lose your lifeline and you're still wanting & looking for the same things: reasons & answers. When Caroline & Tyler's trapped inside the tomb for Klaus' sacrifice.

Caroline: You're leaving town again?


Caroline: So, what are you, like friends now?

Caroline, being the royal tactless blonde that she is, interrogated him at once. Just like the rest of us, Caroline both wanted & needed some answers. And just like the rest of them, Tyler kept on sidetracking her. Can I just say, for the record, "How are you?" is really underrated. And this scene justified it all the more.

Flower Power

I came across an article on Net-A-Porter last weekend about the newest trend in power dressing: plain tee and fancy skirt. I'm not big on trends. I basically just put on anything I like that's available in my closet regardless of the current whatnots. But a fancy skirt and a plain tee is somewhat a closet staple for me. I was even wearing a similar ensemble some one year ago for my sister's birthday!

So I gave the look a shot again! Only this time, it's more summery! With the pastel colors and the woven hat! And that it's a package deal gift from my sister as I was having a bad week, she treated me into a retail therapy! Thank you, Anei!

I decided to dress up since 1) It's the day of the Royal Wedding, 2) I'm headed to a children's party I might as well appear cheery. Hahaha!

This is the skirt I was talking about. I believe it's 2 sizes bigger than my supposed size. The size confusion has taken its toll on me.

Weird how my eyes got cut out from this angle...
