Hi! I'm REYZEL, a reckless seventeen-year-old potato from the boulevard of broken dreams and just a speck in the universe trying to seek her great perhaps.

This is a personal blog filled with my thoughts and some photographs of the random happenings in my life.

"Dress-To-Express"

Or impress. Lol whatever. Anyway, this was our activity in SC101. My idea of “dress-to-impress” is literally to wear a dress. Because it’s very unusual of me. I only wear them on occasions and yeah, SC stuff for my course. The thing is, when I wear a dress people always say, “Wow naman Reyzel? Reyzel?”  And they get some kind of second look to realize that sometimes, I can be a girl. Yay. Then the shoes, thos are about 4 inches, which isn’t obvious in the picture but anyway, I hate wearing heels. I did not say I hate them, I said I hate wearing them. Basically because I walk like a guy. Srsly, my guy friends admitted that I walked manlier than them. That hurts. Hahahaha just kidding, although yeah it’s true that why, me wearing heels=awkward tall girl walking in a very weird way. LOL. But the thing is, I am tall and when I wear heels, I’m even taller, and I get a few extra pounds of confidence when I speak in front. Hihi. Just don’t stare at me walking. Believe me, I’m trying to work on that.

I was tagged by @shcaen 😉 So yeah here it goes, 20 facts about me:

1.My name “Reyzel” is a combination of my Dad’s name, Reynolds, and my Mom’s name, Hazel. Tada!
2. I sing to soothe my soul. It keeps me sane. I also play the guitar and the keyboards. Yeah okay I’m obsessed with music.
3. Basically, I am a band geek.
4. I am easily attracted to guitarists and guys who can sing. In other words, musically inclined guys. Tee-hee
5. I have six piercings.
6. I have huge manly feet. My shoe size is 10. Sometimes 9. Lol
7. I am obsessed with shoes! Boots and sneakers are my babies!
8. I am a pure blood and proud Kapampangan!
9. My hair is naturally curly, and “wild-looking” (lol waht??) I usually just try to make it “calm-looking” by using a straightening iron.
10. I am a very ticklish person. Even my palms are ticklish. 
11. I have a thing for journals and diaries. My high school life is basically written in four diaries. And now I still own a journal. I love writing about everything and then the feeling I get whenever I read it some other time (especially when it’s a loooong time) is priceless.
12. I am afraid of heights. Which is ironic because I’m currently studying in Baguio City.
13. I am not a morning person. Seriously, I get pissed a lot especially when I don’t have enough sleep. Lol sorry.
14. I have a resting-bitch-face. That’s why people always label me a bitch or an intimidating person as their first impression. Which they mostly take back once they know me. (weh)
15. I have watched every episode of How I Met Your Mother 123456789th times. And also, Friends. They are the two TV series I never get tired of watching over and over again.
16. Most of my t-shirts are from the guy’s section. And I am not the kind of girl who loves dresses. There’s always a reason behind every dress I endure to wear.
17. I LOVE COFFEE. AND TEA. 💕 Coffee shops are the place where I usually have my me-time.
18. I like having movie marathons. Whether it’s with the people I love or just me.
19. I love reading! (for pleasure, not for acads lol)
20. I dream of becoming a MYX VJ someday 👊

I can still feel the butterflies just remembering the time that I saw your stupid face again. I’m even smiling right now just thinking about that moment our eyes finally met and began to laugh a little because we already knew what it meant. I badly wanted to run to you and hug you so tight the way I wanted to all those nights that we just talked about how much we missed each other. And I can’t find the words to tell you how much I longed for your presence again. We walked around, and walked around some more just to seize the moment and take photographs of the things around us. We went out to see the city at night, and stopped again to take pictures of whatever. You put your arm around me and I fought the urge of wanting to wrap mine on the other side. You held my arm long enough for me to get confused of wanting to hold your hand. You stared at my eyes so deeply that the city lights grew brighter, but not as bright as your eyes. And I badly to hold your hand because I was in a new place with one of my most favorite persons in the world and I felt infinite again after quite some time. I did not want to hold back with anything. But I was scared.
I thought I was done wrestling with whatever feelings I had, but I guess I’m not. And as we stood there just staring at the lights go on and off or go red and green and see the whole city blink beautifully, I turned to your direction just to look at you, knowing that right now, I am standing right next to you and there was no place I would rather be.
Then my frustrations grew a little bigger.

The UP Diliman Experience

I’ve always wanted to go to UP Diliman, just to know what it’s like to be there. Or to be around the metro and stuff because I really never been there aside from all the field trips in elementary and high school. So I basically grabbed the chance to do so when I attended a debut in Rizal last Saturday and roamed around Quezon City on Sunday. So first I went to UP Diliman to meet up with my friend, Krista. It’s really funny because I pretended that I was one of the boarders of the dormitory and I just walked in there like a boss. Then we went to Maginhawa to eat brunch at Ally’s All Day Breakfast Place, which I blogged previously.

And yes we really do look alike. Hahaha! This was taken at Ally’s.

Then we roamed around UP just for me to experience it, because it was my first time. Yay!

It was honestly excruciatingly hot! Or was I just shocked because I was used to being in Baguio? I don’t know, it was really bothering me but it was fine because I was busy trying to feel the moment of being there. (wow really? lol)

At around late in the afternoon, Krista went back to her dorm and I met up with *janjarananjanjan* Moore! 

This is him taking a picture of a butterfly, I think. 

We literally walked around UP and it was really cool because it was no longer that hot.

Then I saw this on the road and I thought, aren’t we all asking the same question?

And I really missed him!!!!!!! And yes that deserves a lot of exclamation points.

Saw this one while walking around and it’s.. kind of a double meaning thing. Lol

Saw this one, too! I wasn’t able to see the one that says “How can you turn pain into something beautiful”  and the others, so yeah.

And then we went to my biggest frustration..

And here is my frustrated face: 

Lol actually it’s just us making weird faces because we were tired of all the walking. I had no words to describe how happy i was that time, I mean, wow. Just wow. 

Okay can I just add this one, my adventure continues, we went to SM North ESDA to roam around some more and catch up and then to Trinoma, which was just across SM and of course, I did not know that. And I impulsively bought this:

Yaaaaay!! After that we went back to SM North again to roam around some more and I’m just really overflowing with unexplained ectasy all over me and awwww and then I had to take the bus again back to Baguio.

And I’m totally going back. Yay!

Ally’s All Day Breakfast Place

My good friend Krista told me about this place at Malingap St. Quezon City. Since I was around the area last Sunday, we decided to check it out and have breakfast there! 

image

The thing in this restaurant is that they will greet you “Good morning” regardless of what time it is. Well because it’s an all-day-breakfast place, I guess. I think this place is perfect for people who lose track of time and wake up in the afternoon like me. So when you feel like having breakfast and grabbing some pancakes at 4 in the afternoon or even at nigh, you can totally grab a bite and satisfy your tummy here! And of course, for all the people who love breakfast, the most important meal of the day, this is the place for you!

image

The place is very nice!

image

Here are some sneak peaks at their menu! Aside from their very delicious and affordable big-time breakfast meals, they also have waffles and pancakes! And fyi, they can also make it just the way you like it because you can also avail of the DIY Pancakes and Waffles!

image

This is what I ordered, Baked Honey Garlic Chicken. It’s very satisfying and worth it guys! I was sofa king full after eating and I couldn’t stop eating because it tasted too good!

image

And this is what my friend ordered, Daing na Bangus!

 We were so full after just eating our meal but we weren’t done yet because we ordered some pancakes.

image

image

Doesn’t it look so tasty?! I’m telling you, these are the best pancakes I have ever tasted. It was also quite big, so it was very worth it. We were struggling to finish this up for almost 2 hours. Seriously, we were so full but it tasted so good we were so frustrated. Lol. 

So there you go! Be sure to check this place out and bring your friends to breakfast any time of the day! You can also click here to check out and like their facebook page.

This is us smiling and giving this place a thumbs up! :)
