I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose, fire away.
Ricochet and take your aim, fire away.
Shoot me down, but I won’t fall.
I am Titanium.
I’d rather not use the party motto as the title of this blogpost. It sounded too dark. Heehee ^^
Last June 1, 2012 was the party that made waves in CdO, or at least in the little heart of Bayabas, the SUMMER SETS IN PARADISE BY HIGZSNAPS. This was just too amazing for words to describe it! Lots of booze and friends came! Hooray! Plus DJ Mark Daquiz as HS Resident DJ and Lexter Da Vyrus from Killerbee as our guest DJ to rock the night with their awesome mixes.
Not only was this party bound to happen because summer was about to end and we needed to continue our tradition of always ending the summer with a twist, we also hosted this party to launch our company Higzsnaps Eventology and Digital Group. If you happen to need any event organizers/photographers/make-up artists and/or a DJ, feel free to contact us! We’re happy to do any events such as weddings, debuts, birthdays, baptisms, anniversaries or any party/event you have in mind. Please do contact us.
I had the chance to be a DJ/Host for the party. It was crazy! Everyone was up and game to do anything (except stop dancing for 3 minutes). So, let the photos be the judge as to our definition of FUN.
With Thea, Lilian and Paula. Gorgeous girlfriends!
Paula breakin’ some style.
Thea, so slim already!
Paula and resident DJ, Mark D.
Taking the obligatory what’s-the-outfit-for-the-event photo.
That’s what got us blurred. That’s not yet all of them. Then welcome Tequila shots for the guests coming in.
DJ’d and hosted the event.
Then our official DJ’s rocked the night. HS Resident DJ Mark D. and Lexter Da Vyrus from KillerBee CdO.
Some happy pictures. Still sober, yes?
Dance party begins.
And some testosterone were pouring in since the boys decided to take off their shirt after the song “Take Your Shirt Off”. Sounds reasonable enough.
I’m already used to the beer being splashed everywhere in a party, Francis here decided to splash Tanduay instead. My eyes were stinging in pain! Halang man!
And some more skin.
There you have it. These are not all of the photos but these were all from my camera. *Disclaimer: I didn’t take all of the photos here. Hahaha! Someone else did. This is how we should be carefree for at least once or a couple of times in our life. Take a look at this after 5 years and you may have some idea on how you spent your summer days when you were 20-22. You’re seriously gonna grin.
And yes, we know how to party. Want to have one? Contact us!
Actually everything that happened that night was a blur. I could only remember some key events. Alcohol really does something to your brain. Hahaha!
I may still be far, far, far away to adapting that lifestyle change that I’ve always wanted, we always have to start somewhere, right?
Okay, so maybe I’ll confess that I’ve been putting some effort into shedding off some pounds lately. I was simply fed up with the feeling of not being able to buy clothes you like and hearing some so-so “compliments” on how much you’ve changed, physically.
I’m thinking about posting some of the recipes I cook here on my blog (not now, maybe soon, maybe when I’m more “expert” as you may say) because in the adapting the healthy lifestyle commotion I’m putting myself into, I would really want to use this motto I’ve tied up: LET’S EAT OUR WAY TO FITNESS. Yes that’s right! Most of the people I know who want and/or who are desperate to look like Alessandra Ambrosio, Megan Fox, Zac Efron or Chris Pine (someone ring the fire alarm, I just dropped the hot-people-bomb names) are into crash dieting i.e. eating three pieces of Skyflakes a day and relying on water to relieve hunger. Plus getting completely rid of rice, RICE, RIIIIICE! It’s my staple! It’s delicious! I can seriously eat rice and nothing else to go along with it, yet other people were able to live with the idea of not being able to eat rice and maybe not eat anything at all. Where do you think do these people can get all the necessary nutrients their body needs? I ponder on that and maybe it’s probably one of the many reasons (besides lack of determination and just being a plain slob that I already am) I never liked the idea of dieting. That’s why I always tell my fitness buddy/boyfriend to never ever crash diet and eat right. That’s what I’ve learned and it sounds just right.
So I figured why shouldn’t I try eating healthy foods rich with nutrients yet help me kick off some unnecessary weight? (The idea of South Beach Diet comes into mind) After all, food is my first love! Then photography, traveling, etc would follow that. I’ve been cooking a lot ever since I was way back in 4th or 5th grade and I could recall that I’m an avid fan of pasta which I’m mostly cooking. Uh-oh, carbs, too much, bad idea. Chosss.
So yes ladies and gentlemen who are again spending a little bit of wee minutes of your valuable and precious time, lo and behold my masterpiece which I’d like to share on what I’ve cooked so far from the long point I’ve tried to explain earlier. Pictures only, you won’t get any recipes from me in the mean time (that is assuming, AGAIN, that someone is actually reading this blog).
I used chicken thighs because it contains less fat as I’ve read in some online resources and it’s tastier. Plus it’s my favorite part of the chicken. It surprisingly smells good (that from the pandan leaves) and tastes good from the simple marinade I put together.
Sauteed Sayote Leaves
I always make it to a point to give myself a healthy dose of greens! I love vegetables! That’s why I have no problem with cooking it as much as I have no problem eating it. This one is really simple. Just a whip of oyster sauce on the sayote leaves heated with olive oil and in just a snap of a minute, it’s done.
Not only do I cook like an articulate-Lifestyle Network-wannabe chef in the comfort of my own abode, I of course do some few rounds of jog (by few I mean no more than 4 continuous rounds of jog in our city’s sports center. Shame on me). We y’all gotta sweat it somehow, right?
So there you have it, my first entry about my shameless journey to fitness! You may say who am I to formulate this entry when I myself even ain’t that fit as I sound here. Well you know, we all have to climb one mountain at a time to arrive to the place where we want to be. Yes, you can quote on that awful metaphor I just wrote. Haha! Till then :)
