New life.

Hi there. I'm blogging at this hour because.... I can't sleep. And yeah something happened a while ago in my life.

After 8 months of being happy, sad, hurt, kilig, and crazy, I ended it. Too much hurting was happening. Me hurting him, him hurting me... I really don't know how will I start every single day now, knowing I wouldn't have that "someone" whom I can talk to and just be happy. Although, in the past few weeks of talking to him, we kind of just fight and fight. But I'll never forget him. He was my first. And I'm happy with that. He showed me how it was to be loved... and to be taken care of. If you're reading this, you'll always have a place in my heart. Always remember that.

On the other hand, it's October 27 here in Philippines now and.... 5 days to go till I'm eighteen!! Should I be happy or not? I'm still childish sometimes and ughhh nothing ever changed since I turned 17, I guess? Hahahahha. But still I'll have food to eat!! And I will not share. HAHA! Eggpie and Leche Flan on the 1st of November! Yay!!

So yeah. Just a useless update. XD

Tomorrow I'll be back I guess. c:

When insomnia attacks...

Hi. :) Why am I even blogging? Lol erase. Sorry for still not posting the Part II of my Azkals game experience. I have two reasons (which are sure not valid): One, internet connection isn't upgraded yet. Two, I'm too lazy to do it. Sorry. :) But I'll post it of courseeee.

I'm writing here, because.... well, mainly because of what happened to my day earlier. And yeah some other things. So, my day started early (mainly because I was still up at 4am yesterday (Oct.19)), then kinda slept for a bit, and decided to climb out of my bed at 8am (which was the time I was supposed to be meeting up with Inah and Joseph at school). See? It's enrollment time again. One week out of school then here it is again nowwww... Ugh. Still lazy to start second semester but industrious enough to start it too because I'm broke. XD So, yeah, came to school at 9:30-ish. HAHAHA. What is super late. I waited for Inah outside the school for a while and yeah, I got a few looks. -_- Result of my dip-dyed hair (that I will blog about I don't know when ^-^). We went inside and DENG! No section opened that will satisfy our needs. XD You see, I enrolled Mandarin (without knowledge) as my Foreign Language last semester but due to some schedule conflicts, Mandarin became French (which was a blessing cause Mandarin is super hard, according to my former classmates who took that subject). And this semester, I'm supposed to take up French 2. And when we arrived, only one section was opened, and it has Mandarin for its Foreign Language.

Err so, Inah and I talked to Sir Gamier (mostly Inah actually) and asked about our situation. Then, he opened two sections!! With French and Nihongo as its Foreign Language! Yay right? But still, I need to print my grades on the portal, WHICH IS REALLY SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED. We have grade cards, yennow? But due to some professors are enjoying the semestral break (a.k.a. lazy), they did not encode OUR grades which was SUPPOSED to be used YESTERDAY on time. Deym. So we rented a computer on a internet cafe for 30 minutes then.... still, 5 out of 7 grades are posted. -_-" WHAT IS LAZY. Turns out we can't enroll unless all the pre-requisite subjects has its grade posted. MISIR and Banquet are the subjects with no posted grades yet. The best part? They're pre-requisites. -_-" So we just saw the schedule and....went home. Nagsayang lang ng energy.

As I went home, I found out that Banquet has it's grade encoded! Yay. Then after a few long hours, MISIR!! To kill time, I made this schedule (which I would not post). HAHAHAHA. But yeah, it was worth it. So we can enroll! And I'm (we're) going back to school this Monday! Hello Second Sem! :D

My average? 1.86. ALMOST. ALMOST THERE. So yeah, I, Rachel Anne Palma, do solemnly swear that I will study harder/more this semester to achieve higher grades. :) I, thank you. Loljk. Though I'm serious with the "I will study harder" thingy. :)

Final say? It frustrates me, though I'm happy with my grades. ALMOST THERE NA EH.

Till next time I can't sleep!

I'm supposed to be sleeping now and not in front of the computer. Due to I'm an insomniac, I'm here typing. I'm just here to tell you (rant) about things happening in my life in bullets.

  • Sembreak's almost here!! It's our last week in school which means Exam's Week/Hell Week. T_T Ugh. I hate this part of studying. Mehehehe. But I'm pretty sure I'll pass on the other subjects except for Marketing. Huhuhu. God, help meeee!!!
  • Since sembreak's almost near, I'm doing something on my hair. I've been looking for hair inspirations since last week. I don't want a drastic change because our semestral break is just almost a month (Oct. 14-Nov. 6). And I still have to enroll for next semester which means November 6 would be October 30 or earlier. So I need something that is not too much of a change but can add that "oomph" I've been wanting to have since Summer 2012. I was looking everywhere (mainly colored hair dedicated Tumblr accounts) and I got these.

This is cute. Though the blonde part of her hair would be brown for me. x)

I love the teal/green color but I can't find a dye like that here in Philippines! I still have to order online (Manic Panic) which is TOO expensive for me.

THIS is one of the ideas I like. :)

Dip-dyed Blue!

Again with the teal/green ends!!!

I love this. I WANT THIS.

Red/Pink tips!

This is realllyyyyy cool. But I can't have that. :(
So I found these pictures and I reaaaaalllyyyy like the 6th photo but I don't know how will I do that to my hair. Then I decided I'll just do dip dye-ing.. But still in search for ideas (if you have some post the link please?)! Then while looking for ideas, I found these photos.

AAAAHHH Purple hair!! And then now I wanted to have purple hair on me! So I Google-d for purple/violet hair dyes here in Philippines..... then I saw (1) this blog post. Her hair turned violet with just that Henna Wax Color Treatment. I'M GONNA BUY ONE. But still, I have to bleach my hair or the effect won't be that vibrant. XD Though I don't know which color yet. Mehehehe. It has a lot of colors!! I searched for other reviews and I saw (2) this post wherein she used the same color (Cyclamen) but it turned out magenta-ish/fuschia pink-ish on her photos. I also found this (3) Tumblog. She used  the Red Burgundy one and based on her pictures, it turned as red as Nikita Lim's!! If only I discovered this product last summer, my hair shouldn't have faded to orangey-red! Ugh, regrets. Oh, btw, the product also has other benefits. It's supposed to treat dry, damaged hair. So.. let's see when I buy that.

So according to the first blog post I mention, when it faded it became pastel pink in color which I would loooooove to have! I was rooting for pink tips actually, but since I wont find anything like that here, I'll stick to the purple/violet one. AND I'M SUPER EGG-SOITED TO TRY THIS!!! Sorry guys, I can't hide my excitement eh. :P

  • I'm almost eighteen! 24 days left!! But still, I can't vote this 2013 Elections! T______T The registration is up until the 31st of October..... ONE DAY LEFT AND I'M EIGHTEEN!! Talk about unluckiness. :(
  • My face is bombarded with pimples. XD I'm exaggerating, sorry. Well, there are few pimples on my T-zone (forehead to nose onlyy). My chin is a disaster. T___T And so is my cheeks. :((( So I'm trying this remedy my Mum asked me to do. Hope this works *fingers crossed*!
  • I put my Instagram feed on the bottom of my blog! Finally!! Hahahaha. You guys can follow me on @shelovescolorss on Instagram :)

I haven't posted the Part II of the Azkals' game experience cause I'm still waiting for the upgrade on our internet connection :) Please bear with me. x

Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012 Part I

Hello! Here I am again, writing a story that happened last Saturday, September 29, 2012.

I watched the last game day in the Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012 with my brother live. Not live on the TV screen but live at Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. It was a superb experience that I'll never exchange for anything.

We went out of the house at 2PM with only 200php on our pockets. We rode jeepney to LRT Monumento station. From Monumento to Vito Cruz was an hour and a few minutes more. Then we walked for a few minutes then we reached Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. OH HELLO!!!!! Then my brother has to leave me because of boyfriend duties. Hahahaha. So I watched the first match, Guam vs Macau, by myself.

Guam ~ Macau*
*Low quality photo taken from my phone

Few people we're there to watch the first match but then, those few peeps were cheering! One of those peeps who are watching is Juan Cutillas (Former Azkals and Kaya FC coach)! And they were cheering for Guam (same team I was rooting for because of Jonah Romero). He had an almost goal at around the 25th minute of the game but, yeah, he didn't score.. But they won!! 3-nil against Macau and yeah, I felt proud to watch them win. And I don't even know why. :3 The match ended at 6PM and the next match is at 7:30PM. Still, my brother is nowhere to be seen.

People came and as the kick-off time draws near, the bleachers and the grandstand gets jampacked! Lotsa people came! They even announced that viewers should be sure that they're seating on what was indicated on their ticket. And then the Philippine Azkals came out to do some warm up before the game. Then the crowd shouted!! WHOOOOOOP~ All are excited to watch the game. You have to understand that in the two matches the Philippine Azkals played, they won. And this is the last match to be played. THIS IS THE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH.

Philippines ~ Chinese Taipei

7:30PM came and the game started. And yes! We scored and early goal care of Denis Wolf!! YEHESS!! The crowd went wild!! Everybody's cheering!! And I was so happy! After a few minutes, another goal! From the one and only, Chieffy Caligdong!! Uh-yeah!! WE SMELL CHAMPIONSHIP!!! Wait, they didn't stop trying. OJ Porteria scored another goal just minutes before the halftime whistle! Champions indeed!! Still, my brother is nowhere. Poor him. >:P

Oh, btw, I saw some football players! Always hot looking Captain Aly Borromeo in his plain black V-neck shirt. *drools* Simon Greatwich!!! *drools even more* Anton del Rosario arrived with a baby (idk if it's a she or a he) which is super cuuuuuuute! And maybe Sam Richelle was with him but I didn't see her face. I just saw someone arrived with him. *dies. hahaha* Then I saw Heather Cooke holding a huge banner for her "baby" Jason de Jong! I tweeted her about it and she replied!! :D

So, um my brother arrived when the 2nd half has started. No more goals from Philippines but one from Chinese Taipei. Could've been two if it wasn't from the superb save by Eduard Sacapano on the Chinese Taipei's penalty kick! For me, he really improved a lot since... before. Thumbs up to that!

And Jonah Romero walked in front of me thrice! But I didn't have enough courage to call him. UGH. Next time, next time. On a Kaya FC game, I'll have the courage! *fingers crossed*

And the fulltime whistle sounds. Everyone was rejoicing. And to what I saw, Philippine Football is sure here to stay. Yes, it surely is. I was like a proud momma! I was really happy and.... no words can explain!

Then awarding ceremonies came next. 3rd runner-up: Macau. 2nd runner-up: Guam. 1st runner-up: Chinese Taipei. CHAMPIONS: PHILIPPINE AZKALS! Yes! WE WON! With 99 years of drought, finally, the rain came!

And we bagged the awards!! Fair Play Award goes to us! And the players got their own awards!
Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012 Golden Boot Awardee and MVP: #20 Denis Wolf
Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012 Best Goalkeeper: #88 Eduard Sacapano
Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012 Best Midfielder: #36 Matthew Uy
Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012 Best Defender: #28 Jeffrey Christiaens

Yes yes! A win is a win. But a championship award is not something that happens everyday. :) So, I'm really happy for them. They worked hard for this. All of them. Including Phil and James Younghusband whom didn't get the chance to play for the said Cup. And yeah, you're the man, Dan Palami. Thank you for believing on them. :)

So I guess that's it. Part II for the pictures but I can't do that now.

This is surely one Saturday well spent. Thank you, Philippine Azkals. You inspire me. I'll see you next time!

Happy October everyone! x
