School Girl Diaries: Dream Team

Throughout the span of years that I have been a student, I have met tons of people from all walks of life. Being a student entails me to be flexible in terms of dealing with the people in school. Group tasks aren't inevitable and let's face the fact..we can't always choose who we work with, right? I've been in situations wherein I'd rather work alone than work with my group since they are a major pain in the buttocks. There were also those times when I became part of a group that was so efficient that it was smoother than smooth. 

When I became a new student just last year, worries started pouring in. I was starting to fret that the people in my new school might be the "hard to work with" bunch. Luckily, I was paired with the BEST group for this semester. Why best? There are 3 reasons why:

1. We're all friends. 
2. Our ideas interconnect well.
3. No pressure. Just pure fun + camaraderie.

The sem started a little bit rocky for our group, since our first output got a "mehhh wtf is that?" reaction from our blockmates and from our professor (major ouch alert). We felt sort of demoralized, but the situation somehow triggered our drive to do better. 

Our strategies and perseverance earned us top spots in the two consecutive activity written and oral defense papers. Don't get me wrong. I ain't bragging, I'm just saying. While some people downplayed our abilities, we just worked quietly until we came up with our finished work. Easy peezy, no pressure ;)

I totally love this group! I feel proud that I'm a part of it. :)

We decided to come up with a name, so we called ourselves: DREAM TEAM. Keri? 

The photos above were taken last Wednesday. That day, we slaved on doing an Instagram-ish developmental milestone poster. We really had no idea about the pattern, so we just worked on our own instincts. Some people gave us the, "ano yan?? parang ewan" look which was annoying. :p

During one of our "brainstorming" sessions at a fast food chain. Idk who took those photos though. How sneaky... 
Photo 4: Excuse my ugly handwriting. That was just for a draft! 

And yes, we do eat at the carinderia. Hihihi they have the yummiest and cheapest foods. :p

Fat Girl Diaries: Buffet 101

As others might know, I'm a sucker for good food and I really don't fail to indulge myself with such. My love for food translates to how much I like buffets. I eat like a monster. Last January 5, the Juneau staff (the company I "work" for during my free time) went to Buffet 101 for lunch. It was such a fun affair since these people are already like a family to me. I've known them since I was like a toddler. :)

Anyway, moving on. We chose the branch at Seaside Blvd. (near Mall of Asia) since it's the closest to the office. We had confirmed our reservation a couple days ahead but a dilemma still got in the way. The receptionist had trouble with our table and reserved seats good for 10 people instead of 15. Bummer, right? Good thing the delectable food was able to cover up the whole thing.

The lunch buffet was from 11 am until 2 pm, I think. We stayed throughout the entire schedule and I seriously came out of the place with a huge tummy. Can you blame me? Buffet 101 has a huge selection of international dishes that ranges from Japanese, Italian, Cantonese, American and so on. Their dessert area will make you come back for more. The panna cotta is for the win! 

Let me narrate in pictures.

We spent the rest of the afternoon around the vicinity. We tried the MOA Eye which costs around Php 150 per person for a 10-minute ride. It was really worth it since it was a little sightseeing spree. Simple things = j'adore. <3
