Hi there dearies!

How are you, guys?

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me. I really really missed blogging. It’s just that laziness and schoolwork got the best of me. Haha.

Hey there loves!

How are you all doing?

For the past week, I’ve been staying in coffee shops and other food establishments across school for most of the day to study because I can’t seem to concentrate when I’m in my room. Last Tuesday, I didn’t have class for the whole day so I decided to eat lunch and study out with my friend, Bea.

Happy Tummy

Bea and I ate lunch in Gravy Fix, a chicken joint offering different flavors of gravy in Katipunan. Afterward, we decided to study in CBTL. Bea decided to get a caffe latte. I, on the other hand, didn’t know what to get because I’m not really a coffee person and I don’t normally go to coffee shops.

After taking a look at their menu, I finally saw something that got my interest and I decided to order it. The drink I got was the Red Velvet Hot Cocoa, and it proved to be a good pick for a first ever drink in CBTL. Haha. The drink is pink in color and it sort of reminded me of Swiss Miss or Sustagen. It was cute! Hihi πŸ˜€

They actually also have a Red Velvet Frappe but I decided to go with the Hot Cocoa because I don’t like how frappes end up becoming just a cupload of ice. Haha. But yeah, if you wanna/decide to try the frappe, tell me about it. :>

A Photo Now & Then

Standard

Hi loves!

How are you all doing?

It’s been ages since I last blogged! It’s actually been about two and a half months since my last post, and I actually miss blogging. Since I know I won’t be able to blog as much as in the early stages of winterslumber, I’ve decided to come up with something. Hihi. :>

A Photo Now & Then

I’ve decided to have a segment entitled “A Photo Now & Then” and as the title suggests, I’ll be posting photos every now and then to keep this blog alive. I know there will be times when I wouldn’t be able to write posts so I’ll just upload a photo. Together with the photo would be a (hopefully nice) title. :p

I actually wanted to call the segment “A Photo A Day” but then I was kinda thinking I might not be posting photos everyday so the “Now & Then” would be a more suited title. Anyway, the reason why I wanted to do this is because I wanted to keep my creative juices flowing, so this will be one way to do it. I hope you guys will support me! πŸ˜€ Hihi

The InstaGRAMMY Award ;)

Standard

Hi there loves!

How are you?

It’s been such a long time since I last blogged. It has been exactly a month since my last post and I really missed all of you. :”> Well, to mark my return in blogland, I just wanna share something really funny that I found online. πŸ˜€

And the InstaGRAMMY Award goes to…

HAHAHA. This song is really hilarious, can I just say! No offense to those who use Instagram but sometimes, the things that some people post on the website are unnecessary, or something that should be kept to one’s self. I think this song is spot on. :))

Well, that’s it for now, loves. πŸ˜€

Hi there loves!

How are you doing?

Earlier today, I was out shopping with my mom when I got a call from this unknown number. I was preoccupied then because my mind was busy thinking of what to buy (HAHAHA) so when I answered the call, I wasn’t able to digest everything that was being said to me. All I can remember is that the girl who called me told me that their company is looking for competent people who can help in their business. She asked me to confirm if I am a student and when I said yes she clarified that what she was offering was a part-time job so I didn’t have to worry about anything. She set an appointment for me to meet her and she said that based on how I talk over the phone, she expects me to be formal so I was asked to go later this week in a smart casual attire and on time, blah blah blah blah.Β I really wasn’t interested in whatever they were offering me but at the back of my head, I had the feeling this was a scam so I didn’t let go of them because I wanted to play sleuth. HAHAHA.

To cut the long story short, after we talked, I forgot her name (idk if she gave it to me and I just forgot ’cause of my preoccupation or if she really didn’t give it to me) and the company’s as well so I texted her and asked her. She then called me and said she wasn’t able to receive the entirety of my message so she asked me what I texted her. Trying not to be rude, I just asked her what the name of their company is. She gave me a name, which, after just a few seconds I forgot again! HAHAHAHAHA. Perhaps a proof of it being insignificant?

After our second talk, she messaged me the directions to their office with “-Ms. Zanganeh” at the end. By then I was able to clear my hazy mind and process what happened. I started feeling iffy about it and I asked her how she got my number. She told me she got it from their HR department’s online recommendations. When I asked for their website, she didn’t reply anymore. As soon as I got back to the hotel room, I immediately turned on my laptop because the desire to uncover these cheats was nagging at me. And, after typing just a few combinations of keywords, I finally got the answer I was looking for.

I am right! Totally right! Apparently, they’ve been at this for some time now, targeting students mostly from Ateneo, UP or La Salle and also others who are already working. The woman I talked to spoke good English but somehow I was still able to sense that there was something wrong about the whole thing. And her not giving me pertinent information was also something that strengthened my doubt. The Nancy Drew in me is really happy because I was able to best those liars! HAHA

(I read Nancy Drew as a kid, okay. HAHA. She’s the best sleuth for me. :P)

So there guys, I just wanted to warn you all in case something similar happens to you. Beware of scams!
