Matriculation Day

Dadi left and went back to Manila in the morning of August 4. Huhu. We’re officially LDR. Huhu. :(
Also on that day was my matriculation in NTU. Since I was done with the registration in the International Student Center and medical exam and got the results already, this was the next step (they don’t use the words enrollment and enlistment, by the way). I prepared myself to wait in long queues, I brought candies and a book to read, just like my good old enrollment days in UP Diliman. When I got to the Lecture Theater 7 for my matriculation , I saw a long queue but it was moving pretty fast. We were then seated inside a fully air-conditioned theater and waited for our names to be called. After an hour of waiting, my matriculation was done. Yes, that fast.

The most peaceful enrollment I've experienced for years. I almost fell asleep while queuing dahil tahimik. I missed the UP war zone during enrollment days. ‪#‎missinghome‬ ‪#‎missingmystudentsandcofaculty‬ ‪#‎missingallthekaguluhan‬

Next step, aside from attending tons of orientations and enjoying free food and goodies, is choosing our subjects. Yay!

Santacruzan 2014

Yes, you read it right. Ako’y isinali by my mom-in-law in their village Santa Cruzan as the Reyna de los Angeles (Queen of Angels) last May 3. And I could still fit into my wedding gown with room to spare! Hooraah! (Bawal huminga, though.).

Thanks to Tanya, my sister-in-law for making my arch. Woodland pa rin ang theme niya. Very much like our wedding. Hehe.

Disclaimer: I was never part of any ‘sagala’ before. Being one of the Reyna-something in Flores de Mayo isn’t really in my bucket list before I hit my big 3-0. 😀 I was actually to shy to parade because I thought I was too old for this. Apparently in this Santacruzan, all the Reynas were married women. I was the youngest Reyna there.

Back to the Beginning of Our Happily After

Went back to Parque España Residence Hotel Alabang where we had our wedding preps last year and attended anticipated mass at Mary Immaculate Conception Nature Church where we got married. We also watched our wedding videos (same-day-edit and wedding highlights) over and over again. Kaiyak lang. Hehe.

Reminiscing at its finest!

Parque Espana surprised us with this gift. They misspelled the last name, though. Hehe.

ONE! Bulilit and Bakulaw’s First Wedding Anniversary

Exactly a year ago, I received an amazing gift from God. This gift is a lovely daily reminder how blessed and lucky I am. Finally, there’s someone who is able to put up with all my quirks, weirdness and sometimes lame (or too much) humor and lines. Thank you for being a domesticated husband and for always thinking that I am cute even without my make up on or well-combed hair. Happy first year wedding anniversary, my poging Dadi/Ser Chef. I love you more than Adam Lambert and Daniel Matsunaga and I’m sure you know that already. I love you so much!

Photos from Redscale StudiosDadi is still down with fever. Yes, on the day of our wedding anniversary. We had to cancel our plans for today and re-book our hotel reservation. Hope he gets better tomorrow.

Cheers everyone! Stay happy and in love! :)
