donut bai!

Here are some photos i'd like to share from last last week. I brought donuts to the office and so.... munchin' and posin' we went.

See, basta kaon, tingsi jud na ang agi! :P

news flash: i already met the sexiest Lola i could ever have heheh! ;) pictures later on my blog! :)

UK Trip

One of my dreams in life is to visit Europe especially London because I have always wanted to visit Wimbledon. I want to see an actual tennis championship since i was entralled by the movie Wimbledon. I should not worry on where to stay because i can just easily pick any of the London Hotels in the area. Maybe i can stay here or here.

Since i like tours, trails and city walks. I should not be missing Birmingham. Then again, i could always stay in any of the Birmingham Hotels.

I really like United Kingdom for its picturesque architectures. All the more reason for me to visit London now that i know i have choices of cheap hotel accomodations. Travelling can never be as great since you can have the best deals in London hotels.

lamps and lighting fixtures

I already have in mind what my dream house should look like. It should have the perfect lighting fixtures installed all over the house. Looking for the suitable lamps both indoor and outdoor should never be a problem because i already found the perfect array of styles to choose from.

I have always admired houses or restos that has "fine art lamps" for decors as it dramatically adds ambiance to the place. The place can even get romantic just by putting the appropriate accent lamps and light accessories. I especially like the ones from "maxim lighting" indoor light fixtures. The "sunset collection" looks very cozy - I like rattan materials that is.

Shop now for the best lamps, even utility lighting according to your sense of style and budget. Their lighting fixtures from different manufacturers are not only decorative but are functional as well.

The Face Behind The Blog

So I was tagged by Irel on this one. Geezz what else is there to say about myself when i basically write everything in my blog and in my journal. Haha! :P And what else is there to see when my face is all over my blog. LOL! I post pictures every now and then you know. :P

i told yah, my face is all over! this should be "the faceS behind the blog" :P don't get me wrong, i don't love my face that soo much, just that i love collages hehe (excuses! :P)

A few random facts about me. Click here.

Well, well, let's get down to real business now. My birth name is Lany. You should now have a hint why i go by the nick Ylan. I have five sisters and I'm the second from the eldest. Growing up, i tried to be a very good student. I thought that getting a better education will improve my life, our lives. I'm not born to affluent parents. I have my fair share of difficulties in life. (life's still difficult 'till now actually heheh). I always get things the hard way. But then again, an old cliche says, things that are hard to bear are sweet to remember. Indeed it is!

To be continued...

escapade to bantayan island

Last weekend was a blast. Me and my friends went to Kota Beach in Bantayan Island. It's a 2-3 hour-bus ride from North bus terminal to Hagnaya plus another hour of ferry ride. The trip was very okay since it was very sunny. No motion sickness for me to worry :P Unfortunately though, I suffered hyperacidity after our dinner. I freaked out, i almost cried for my tummy hurts badly. I failed to bring along some medicine and no pharmacy was open in the vicinity. Thanks to the "white flower" liniment (that i only brought) and for Macelle and Mellany's massages, it saved me through the night. For the most part of the trip, it was a very enjoyable one. I can't wait to go back! :P Special thanks to Alfer for showcasing his photography prowess! Naks!

trip planner

I really like to travel. It's something i wish i would be doing for the rest of my life *wink. I am sometimes the trip planner of the group especially when the outings are just within the next towns.

Long vacations or out of the country travels and tours would demand a rather intense planning. Who would not want a neat itinerary? Well, dear trippers, worry no more! Real Travel is the best travel guide there is. What's even more interesting is that you can share your own experiences and learn from others.

Now, what do you want to do in your next trip? Here are some of the best things to do. Happy trip! :)

teenage harry

I watched the movie Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix last night. I won't utter any of my opinion regarding the movie since i'm really not following the sequels by heart. Heheh. I'll leave that part to all the HP avid fans out there. However, i have one thing to blurt. I don't like Harry now that he's big! I like him better when he was still a kid. :)

The Husband That I Never Had

Today is my scheduled annual physical exam. This is a requirement in the office and i'm happy that i'm already done with it a few hours ago. I went through the tests smoothly unlike last year which was horrible. I get to pee immediately for my urine sample then the nurse took my blood sample at once. The nurse last time had to draw blood from both my arms. It was painful and my arms were swollen for days. I finished the exam today in just an hour or so. Hurray!

Anyways, back to my title. I was watching Games Uplate last night and the sexy host (Jaymee Joaquin) said she idolized Kurt Cobain and that he was the husband she never had. As for my case, actor Collin Farrell is the husband that i never had. LOL! :P


amo ta ni anak dah lol!

By the way, we had icecream earlier too, courtesy of our former officemate Ken. Here's us:

urban fashion

Most women i know love shopping to death. Who doesn't anyways? I think it's in the genes of every woman. But who says only women do that? Men now a days are equally vain and are into fashion too.

To all you guys out there who are into urban clothing, check out this site and you'd surely find a piece or more that you'd love. From shoes to hand bags to hats to sun glasses, you'll have it here. Take note shipping's free so wait no more. Purchase now and sport that trendy urban look. Ladies, you might want to surprise your boyfriends or brothers? These are perfect items to give as presents.

What do i have to say about the male fashion? Absolutely cool especially when you buy your stuff here.

lighting fixtures

When my dream of having my own house is realized, i definitely will have the best of lightings installed in it. Who would not want a house that is majestically lighted?

I came across this site which will surely help me decorate my house. They have a wide range of lighting fixtures to choose from. To top it all they are all manufactured by top manufacturers and are sold at very affordable prices.

Whatever your need is: chandeliers, desk lamps, accent lamps, they have it. Selecting the best fine art lamps should be an easy thing to do then. I can't wait!
