Its been a while since me and my girlfriends hangout.
We've been bombarded with school stuff and makes our head explode!
I've been stress with the exam, when my professor text us that the exam was cancelled.
I'm feeling rejoice and relax at the same time.
Yet there's still a problem:
She hasn't explain and give lecture about our exam.
So this is a call for SELF STUDY!

I really hate self studies.
I'll be stock with tons of questions in my head.
For me to understand this lesson is to ask my classmates about this and that.
Luckily, my girlfriends got a bright idea!

CASE 101: Study Hydrostatic Pressure On Surfaces


Review while we grab a cup of lattes!
All these days I've been going to Starbucks.
Starbucks is really great and I do love their coffees.
But today, we decided to try another cafe:


(c) Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
"In 1963, Herbert B. Hyman started The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. His dedication to finding and serving the best coffee and tea in the world made him the founding father of gourmet coffee in California. 
Now, nearly 50 years old, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® has grown into one of the largest privately-owned, family-run coffee and tea companies in the world. Along the way, The Bean, as it is affectionately known, has become the model for a successful coffee and tea company.  
Since 1963, we have continued to search the earth for only the finest and rarest loose-leaf teas and premium coffees. Today, we proudly offer over 22 varieties of coffee and 20 kinds of tea. Over the years, we have worked hard to build relationships with individual farms and estates so that we can be assured of the best coffee and tea harvests available. Our coffee is roasted fresh daily in small batches in a manual European roast style, then packed using state-of-the-art equipment for shipment in our own roasting facility and delivered fresh daily to our stores. "
CBTL, or known as Coffee Bean & Teal Leaf, welcomes you with a sweet-bitter scent of coffee.
That sweet aroma of the coffee beans makes you crave for a cup of coffee.
CBTL provides an excellence performance and serves you happiness.
All I can say I can hang out here all day.

We order 3 large cup of flavored latte since the weather is quite cold.
I love Fraps but now let's see the taste of latte.

For me I ordered a Double Chocolate Latte, while my friends grab a Mocha Latte.
We also decide to put it in a cup where we can bring it when we stroll around the mall.

Their signature Espresso with steamed milk, foam, and their signature powders.
It has a taste of different delectable flavors like Mocha, vanilla, White Chocolate Dream, and Double Chocolate.

Taking selfies and more. Next time I'm going to bring my camera for a full cafe details.

Thanks MIA CASA for my customized necklace. I seriously love it!
Check her site for fab accessories. Just click the name.

I really love their comfy chairs and tables. It is very unique and very cozy.
You and your friends can really hang out here.

Oh! Let me introduce this mouth-watering dessert I tried.

The Chocolate Banana Muffin!
A sweet, moist & filling, muffin that is stuffed with real chocolate chips and banana from top to bottom.
You won't waste a thing in this muffin.
Their muffins are generously big in size unlike other muffins.

CBTL makes their pastries fresh every day in their very own commissary.
Just like their coffees, they use fine ingredients and their own way of baking.
They are very choosy on what to use because it will result to a great outcome.

CBTL's caring cups!
I also write something in my cup. Check it out on my Instagram (here)

Look at this yummy thing! We've got a free yogurt!
It really taste good!

I've been inlove with my customized necklace and bracelet from Mia Casa!

Skater Chic

I scanned my other laptop yesterday and found out that I got lots of post I missed in 2013.
So it's not too late and even though we're in 2014, I'm still going to miss my awesome adventure.

As an annual event held in our department: Engineering department, we do our ENGINEERING DAYS.
A 3 day event for fun, challenges, quizzes, and excitement.
We do lots of games and different ideas to play with.
On the last day we have our ACQUAINTANCE party for students and to all Engineering family.
This is the time where we students can relax, have some fun, know each other, and give break from tons of school stress.
Since it''s my 2nd year in being a departmental officer, it is my job to continue the annual event.
Last year I'm the departmental secretary, but this school year I got one rank higher and become the vice president in our department.

Seriously, being an officer is really hard.
You got all the responsibilities and also you need to be a good model to your fellow students.
Planning and organizing a party is really hard.
You need to check every single detail about the party.
You need to be on hand about everything from small to huge details.
But you got your other co-officers that can give you help.
Cooperation and team work will do it all.
And I can say that our party is a blast.

Me and my girlfriends getting ready for the party.

Taking a shot before going to the event.
And as you can see, we really decided to wear skater skirts.
We are like the Powerpuff Girls! 
(Do you know that guys? Well, it is my favorite Cartoon when I was a kid.)

Let us talk about my outfit:

I'm so inlove with this zigzag corset.
It is so comfy and fits me well. 
And the silver choker gives fab to the whole outfit.

I'm the person who don't shop in malls or branded shops.
I usually do shopping through online shops.
Well, in this outfit all of it are thrifted.
The items are preloved but still it's in good condition.

Black Oxford Shoes
Zigzag Corset
Maroon skirt
DIY belt :)

Being in a party surrounded by friends and love ones is much better than partying in a place where you don't know someone, right?

Taking a picture with one of the student band :)

And of course! This is memorable, a picture with our college dean.
He's the one wearing stripes of white and different shades of blue, and with the eyeglasses.
We can't do this without him also.

Meet The team behind the party!
We are the Engineering departmental officers of school year 2013-2014.

(From Left to Right)
Dept. treasurer: Vonn Edward Vicente
Dept. President: Gian Paolo Ligad
Dept. Secretary: Daniel Collin Jornales
Dept. Vice President: Lauren Ashley Parohinog (that's me :D )

Great way to spend happiness is to be with your friends who can make you smile and just be yourself.

Until next time,
