Seven things about me.

posted by Aya Empeo at 17:01 3 comments Links to this post

Yeung Chow Fried Rice/Les fleurs en gorgé de soleil.

posted by Aya Empeo at 11:25 2 comments Links to this post
I'm the girl who hates to cook but love to eat. There are only two reasons why I hate cooking. First, I need to wash and clean all the equipments I have used and second, I'm too lazy to cook. Anyway, last month I was watching Janice de Belen's cooking show, Spoon and they are cooking by that time was our family favorite, Yeung Chow Fried Rice. In that show, they demonstrated the best way to cook the rice. And then, I got interested and then started cooking. Anyway, I cooked a Yang Chow Fried Rice for our breakfast, you need patience and hard work cooking this rice. Fortunately, it was a success! YAY!
A sample shot of my very own Yeung Chow Fried Rice

I just want to share to you, that I am a messy cook haha! But after cooking, I need to clean the stove and also the materials and equipments I've used that's what I have learned from the Disney movie, Ratatouille.

Colette: [Linguini is making a mess at the kitchen]
What is this? Keep... your... station clear!
My parents love my Yeung Chow Rice! I also used Crab sticks rather than shrimps because that's the only available ingredient on our fridge haha! xP

Les fleurs en gorgé de soleil.
Early morning boredom. I saw my father watering our plants and then out of boredom I took some photos of our plants. Here are some sample photos.






I need your comments, suggestions and violent reactions.

Football related issues: Loving the Philippine League

posted by Aya Empeo at 15:05 5 comments Links to this post


Months later after the big game in FIFA 2010, Azkals became a popular name. It was a sort of a nickname for the Philippine National Football Team. And because Azkals are mostly consist of handsome half Filipino and half something, girls are now drooling over them and honestly, I'm one of them. And yes, until now I support them not because they are handsome lads but because I'm a Filipina, I shall support my Kababayans! My Kalahi!

And now, I'm getting hook to United Futbol League, a local league here in the Philippines. And there are five local teams/club that I support that would be the KAYA Futbol Club, Air Force Phoenix, Global Football Club, Loyola Meralco Sparks and Team Socceroo (which consist of 9 Brazilian Japanese!!). And I hope that football will be loved by the Pinoys like how they love Basketball. Toodles!

Football related issues: Loving the American League

posted by Aya Empeo at 08:07 0 comments Links to this post
Do I like or love an American team? When I was asked what is your favorite American football club? The first club that's comes to my mind is the LA Galaxy. I love the team because David Beckham is in that team. But my love for that team is not like how I love Arsenal and Real Madrid. I love LA Galaxy because of David Beckham and that's all. And like I said in my previous post, David Beckham is my first football player crush.

Speaking of LA Galaxy, they are going to visit the Philippines this December 3 and yes with David Beckham! I'm so excited for this!!

Football related issues: Loving the Spanish League

posted by Aya Empeo at 16:46 0 comments Links to this post
Spain also has one of the most popular players and club. Yes, I also have a favorite team. There are only two clubs that I will love forever and ever, Arsenal FC and CF Real Madrid. CF Real Madrid is a Spanish football club. I fell in love with CF Real Madrid because most of the players of Spain National Football Team are in this team, either in Real Madrid CF or FC Barcelona. What does Real Madrid did to attract me to their club, hmmm... I think it was because of Xabi Alonso? Xabi Alonso is one of my Spanish NT crushes. By the time I'm starting to love Real Madrid I still don't know that Ronaldo and Kaka exist. Just found out about Cristiano Ronaldo because my ex-boyfriend talked about him one time and just found out about Kaka when I saw a huge advertisement in C5 about him and he's my little brother's favorite football player. And like, Arsenal, as games passed by I learned to love the whole team and even the manager, Jose Mourinho!

Like Arsenal FC, I also fell in love with Real Madrid's kit uniform because of its simplicity, a color white with some touch of gold or blue (home colours).

And for me, Real Madrid has the most beautiful logo ever!

I also tried to love FC Barcelona, yes I did but I don't why I can't haha! Even though the best football palyer is there (Leo Messi).

Anyway, Real CF will be the only Spanish football team that I will love until I die!

Hair loss

posted by Aya Empeo at 16:06 0 comments Links to this post
When I was a kid until pre teens, I have this wonderful thick hair but when I turned 18 years old, I started to skip meals and I was on a crash diet. And because of that, my immune system got weak and I also had hair loss which made my hair more thin. There were times where you can see my scalp, I had patches on my hair because of that, I’m sort of getting bald in an early age. Now, I’m planning to be more healthy and eat in a small frequent meals than to eat one big meal only.

To girls who want to lose weight, crash diet is a big NO NO! You’ll lose weight as well as your crowning glory.

Football related issues: Loving the English League

posted by Aya Empeo at 07:23 0 comments Links to this post
How did I became fond of the International leagues/football clubs?

My first ever Football player crush was David Beckham, that's when I was in my pre adulthood and the second was Fernando Torres which by that time he was still a player of Liverpool (He's now in Chelsea).

Last FIFA 2010, the championship game was between the Spain National Football Team and the Netherlands National Football Team. Of course I'm rooting for Spain, not just because Fernando Torres was there but because my ancestors are Spanish which means I'm a Spanish descendant. Anyway, while watching the game I noticed this Dutch striker wearing an orange top with a number 9 on its back. I actually can't take my eyes off him until I forgot I was originally rooting for the Spanish team. As the game goes on, I found out the striker's name, he is Robin Van Persie and of course I fell in love with him haha LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. And then the Spanish team let the player with a number 4 on his back, play on the field, I was stunned and amazed and also had a crush on him. That guy would be the 24 year old, Francesc Fabregas. Anyway, Spain won the FIFA 2010.

As days passed by, my brother introduced the English league to me. He's a Manchester United and Arsenal FC fan by that time (now, he hates Man U and still love AFC). The first ever league that I have watched was BPL (Barclay's Premiere League) and the game is between the Arsenal FC and.. I forgot the other team haha! When the players were lined up, guess what who I saw? It was Robin Van Persie wearing an Arsenal kit uniform with a number 11 on his back (but now he's wearing a number 10) and there's another player that I saw and it was Cesc Fabregas with a number 4 on his back, he's not just a midfielder for the football club but he's also the captain of the team by that time (he already transferred at Barca). And loving those two player from Arsenal and after watching the games of Arsenal, it also made me love the team itself even the manager! Yes, Arsene Wenger! By that time, I was starting loving the English league and I was starting to find other clubs/teams to support. I tried Manchester United and City, Liverpool, Chelsea and other clubs. I tried to like them, love them but I don't know why I can't love them like how I love Arsenal.

And also one of the reason loving AFC is because of the simplicity of their uniform. It has a red and white kit (for home colours) and with a huge "FLY EMIRATES" on their top.

I proudly say that until now, I' am still a Gooner (which they call for fans). I will love Arsenal FC forever and ever, win or lose!

Football related Issues: How I fell in love with Football

posted by Aya Empeo at 13:02 0 comments Links to this post
Football, is now in the mainstream. Many people thought I love football because it is one of the most popular sports as of now or sometimes people thought I love football because of the handsome Azkal players (Philippine National football Team).

Actually I've been in love with football since when I was in grade four. I really want to play football but by that time the only sports in our school was basketball, volleyball, track and field and Martial Arts, which I ended up taking Track and Field).

At a young age, why do I love football? Honestly, it was an influenced by a Japanese cartoon, an anime. As you can see, almost every anime, the sports of the main character is either football, basketball, or baseball. And because I have a fear of flying balls I choose football.

When I was in High school my love for football became more passionate or something like that. And my new school was near "ASCOM" which has a soccer field. Anyway, I was planning to enroll or join a soccer team but unfortunately my free will are controlled by my parents in short I don't have FREEDOM and "bantay sarado" by my parents.

FAST FORWARD. Blah blah blah. When I transferred school for college my love for the sport slowly disappears. My hope for being a soccer player slowly fades away.

And by that time, my beloved brother starts to play football and because of that my love for football came back. And because of him, I started to watch FIFA World Cup and obviously I have a Spanish bloodline, I rooted for Espana even though by that time I don't know the name even the looks or ability of the players, I just gave my trust to them because they are Spaniards!

A Lesson Learned

posted by Aya Empeo at 23:37 0 comments Links to this post
I just want to share a lesson I have learned for today; that nothing really lasts forever, even your own life. I've been this happy-go-lucky girl who's really not afraid to die and doesn't care when would I die. Something happened and made me realize that I should treasure every moment I have. From now on, I will live every day like it would be my last and will treasure every moment of it. I will always say Thank you to all the people who I'm with for that day and I promise I will not regret any stuff that I have done. I will not let any problems or struggles affect my life because it is just a waste of time and there are more important things to do than worrying stuff. I will always do my best because there would be no tomorrow like this.

My new motto/words of wisdom or whatsoever: "I would live like there would be no tomorrow"

Babyface to Ladylike..? Hmm..?

posted by Aya Empeo at 08:24 0 comments Links to this post
I was told by my mentor that every time I'm in front and doing my speech she always sees me as a kid. She said that I look like a 15 year old high school student reciting in front. And she told Ate Dana that I should have a total make over haha!! I just found out that having a baby face also has its own disadvantage. They told me if they are one of the participants/audience they would not believe in everything I have said in the stage because I don't look like a college grad but they see me as a high school student.

TOTAL MAKE OVER!
First Step: Change wardrobe: From flats to heels; from pants to slacks; From skirts to dress; From socks to stockings.
Second Step: Let my hair grow, because short hair makes me more young (although I want to look young but I need to look professional), gonna bring back that long messy wavy hair of mine!! :D
Third Step: Posture!!! Stand straight, shoulder relax, chest out, stomach in.
Fourth Step: Make-up; I actually don't have any problem about that.
Fifth Step: Change bag: From knapsack/backpack to leather shoulder bags.

Lezz do this Aya!! Aja!

But still If I don't have work I will still wear my usual kid like t-shirts and shorts with my favorite leather backpack and chucks. :) That's me and I would not change it.

Photography

posted by Aya Empeo at 05:18 0 comments Links to this post
So that means, using cropping, clone tool, etc in your photo means your not a Photographer? So that means, the person who took and post process the photos in the billboards are not photographers? So that means Nigel Barker and the other ANTM so called Photographers are not Photographers? So the famous Manny Librodo is not a photographer? They all use Photoshop or other tools to edit the photos. They also use clone tool, changing of background, burn, etc. You know dude, using a post processing tool doesn't forbid you on being a photographer. And some Photography workshop also teach Photoshop as part of their course. It doesn't matter what camera, accessories and tool you are using as long as you have the TALENT, passion and talent (again).

And yes, I do have different kinds of post processing tools like Adobe Photoshop CS5, Lightroom, GIMP, Photoscape, I even use Paint! It doesn't matter how you present your photos as long as you have the talent, passion, creativeness and imagination. Photography is an art and art is all about creativeness and imagination.

I just want to rant haha! I just want to remove this out of my system. Anyway, thanks for reading!

Panaginip Part II

posted by Aya Empeo at 16:58 0 comments Links to this post
Kung babasahin niyo tong entry ko iisipin niyong ang gugulo ko. Actually, magulo talaga ako. Sabi ko nung una wala na kong balak magmed pero gusto ko din maging successful na Neurologist talaga.

Naalala ko ung classmate ko sa NMAT review, she's 27 years old pero hindi naging hadlang sa kanya ang edad para tuparin ang dream niya.

Naalala ko rin nung umattend ako ng service kay Bo Sanchez. He said that ibinibigay ni God ung gusto mo in the right time. It might not this time baka after 2, 3, 4, 5 years. Just don't give up.

Iniisip ko parang sayang maggive up sa dream na maging doktor pero naisip ko pag nagmed ako, di na ko makakapagtravel. Nahihirapan ako at pati ang desisyons ko gumugulo. Gusto din na rin ng mga magulang ko na magtrabaho muna ako dahil nagastos na nila ang pang aral ko.�

I trust God. Siya na bahala sa akin at sa magiging career ko. God bless us!

Intindihin na lang

Buti na lang talaga marunong akong umintindi. Hindi na katulad ng dati na galit kong galit haha!! Patience is a virtue di ba? Kaya pa naman ng pasensya ko at kaya ko pa magtiis. Sabi ko nga sa friend ko, ako ang bida at alam ko tama ang ginagawa ko so ayun haha!! Di naman siya big deal masyado kasi di ko naman siya ikamamatay di ba? Haha!! Madami akong problema sa buhay pero natutunan kong ngitian lahat kesa sa iyakan kaya ito ako matutulog ng nakangiti :) good night! Ay morning na pala!!! Hahaha :))

Pangarap..

posted by Aya Empeo at 10:34 0 comments Links to this post

Hmmmm... My dream... What I want to be? Nung isang araw as usual nakatulala at nakaupo lang ako. Napaisip isip ako kung ang career na gusto kong kunin ngayon ay talaga bang gusto ko?�

Pangarap ko maging doktor nung bata ako. Oo isa ako sa mga bata na may laruang doktor doktoran at may Case pa un na ngayon ginawa ko ng jewelry box. Halos lahat naman yata ng kilala kong bata pinangarap maging Doktor. Ngayon, inaamin ko, binalak ko abutin ang pangarap na 'to. Ngalang isang araw naitanong ko sa sarili ko, bakit gusto mo maging doktor?? Matagal tagal din ako nag isip.. At wala din akong naisip na sagot. Bakit nga ba? Dahil cguro gusto ko makatulong.. �Oo makatulong sa kapwa.. Pero parang kulang, para hindi siya enough para maging reason.�

Napaisip ako uli... Ang pagiging doktor ba talaga ang pinakagusto ko at alam mong sabi ng puso ko? .. Hindi. Napaisip ako.. matagal ko na palang alam na hindi ko siya priority, gusto ko maging doktor pero hindi talagang gustong gusto.. kaya ako kumuha ng nmat para maitry kung sweswertehin ako pero wala eh. Hanggang sa gusto ko na siya maging career dahil sa tatlong rason: 1. Dahil namiss ko ang pagiging studyante. 2. Ayaw ko pa magtrabaho at masarap umasa sa magulang at 3. Dahil pinagkalat na ng mga magulang ko na magmemed ako. Pride na ang umiral sa akin at dahil dun natabunan na niya ang tunay na inaasam ng puso ko.

Elementary ako, inasam ko mag aral sa DLSU sa kursong Fine Arts. At bakit yun? Kasi gusto ko magdrawing ng landscape at maglakbay. Nung High school ako balak ko na mag aral ng BS Biology sa UP at balak ko pa mag second degree course ng Geology sa UP uli. May balak kasi ako maging Paleontologist or Archaelogist. Tinanong ako ng kapatid ko kung bakit yun? Sabi ko kasi kung saan saang lupalop ng mundo ako makakarating nun. Gusto ko rin maging sundalo kasi pag sundalo naassign kung saan saan, airforce pa nga gusto ko ngalang panira ang mata ko.�

Ngalang umusbong at naging in demand ang nursing kaya napilitan ako kumuha nito. Pero second choice ko ay Tourism at Journalism. Journalism, kasi nainggit ako kay Jessica Soho nun at kung saan saan siya pumupunta and Tourism, obvious naman siguro.

Doon ko lang natanto na ang pangarap ko pala ay maging lakwatserang Dora the Explorer.�

Nung third year college sinabi ko nun mag aaudition ako Travel and Living Channel at igigive up ko lahat para doon.

Ayun, mahilig ako lumakwatsa at pumunta kung saan kaya nung una nabandtrip mga magulang ko pero ngayon supportive na si Itay pero si Inay hindi.

Gusto ko lang magrant, ito kasi ang nasa utak ko ngayon eh. Haha salamat sa pagbabasa!

Verbalizing of thoughts

posted by Aya Empeo at 03:44 0 comments Links to this post
There are certain things I have learned from my past relationship and one of them is verbalizing your thoughts and anger about your ex or even your friend. One of the best way to release your anger is to verbalize your feelings to a trusted friend, the one who is willing to listen. But releasing your anger and hatred about someone on a social network is a big NO. Yes, I admit I was once like that. I also bombarded my facebook, twitter and plurk and even my multiply account about people I hate, how I hate them. Especially when my ex-boyfriend broke up with me, I filled my social networks with hatred status about him, etc. But because of this experience I learned something from it. I learned that it's wrong to tell the people in FB or other social networking sites about how bad this guy, etc, and having a pleasure that people will know how bad he is. Where in fact you're the one who's the bad guy because you're ruining one's reputation to other people. Am I right? NANDA (North American Nursing Diagnosis Association) said Encourage verbalization of feelings, you know it's better to tell your best friend or even your parents how you feel about certain person and I'm sure after that you'll be feeling better and of course FORGIVE that person who made your life miserable.

Future

posted by Aya Empeo at 11:11 0 comments Links to this post
Who should decide your future? You or your parents?

I have finished the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing last April 2010 and passed the Nursing Licensure Exam last July 2010. But deep inside me I never like BSN, I never dreamed to be a nurse. So now, you'll want to ask me why did I take nursing? I was forced by my parents to take this course. Yes, I' am one of the High school graduates of year 2006 who was forced to study BSN by their parents because nursing boomed and was in demand by that year. And another reason is that my mom was having a projection, she wants me to pursue her dream, yes it was her dream. Anyway, I finished BSN without any problems bu tI don't have any job today like the other bum RNs.

I remembered last five years ago, they promised me that they will allow me to take any course I like after I finish BSN. So I planned to take Medicine. I really want to be a doctor or a tour guide, and I' am serious with the tour guide thing. And because as time goes by, I enjoyed the duty as a nurse so I decided to take a course related to the course I have finished. By this month I'm going to take NMAT, an entrance exam for med students and do my best.

My parents are both police officers, and now my father is retired and wants me to be a police nurse. He wants that one of his child will follow his footsteps. And he wants me, his one and only daughter. I cried while he was telling this to me. I don't want to be a police, I don't even want to be a nurse. I'm not the only kid he has, he has two other sons. Why not ask them and they are guys, they are fitted to that course or job or whatsoever. I have enough following your dreams. I want to follow mine. I want to be successful because of my dream not following my parents'.

May God help me and guide me. I will give myself a deadline until December 2011, and if I don't pass, I mean have the grade that I should have. I'll continue the job that is related with my course.

I just want to share my happiness for having a new PC set. Yes, we have a new set of PC and it took us eight hours fixing it, from 5pm to 1am. It was a family bonding and I had fun although my father shouts at us because he was a bit "atat" about everything. Anyway, I'm really happy about this new set and Windows 7 and we also installed wifi here at home :D That's all. Need to go I'm actually watching NBA Finals Game 3. Go Dallas Mavericks!

I ♥ Portraits

posted by Aya Empeo at 12:37 0 comments Links to this post
I fell in love with Photography when I was 16 years old, that time I was already a nature lover and a "Dora Explorer". Photography helped me to preserve and keep the memories I have from my journeys. I was still using a film camera by that time, just an ordinary film camera until my mom bought our first ever digital camera, a Sony P32. I enjoyed using that camera because you can easily erase the unwanted photos. And then two years after, I realized that I need to upgrade my camera into a Digital single-lens reflex camera or famously known as DSLR. After 3 years, I have my own DSLR. Anyway, that time I want to be a landscape photographer but as time flies I fell in love with Macro and Portrait Photography. Until now, I'm still in the process of practicing. Here are some of my works.

Hope to have lots of shoot to come.

Last May 21, 2011, me and my friends went to Laiya, San Juan, Batangas to relax and enjoy the summer. Laiya was popular with its cheap and affordable accomodations and the sand there is white but not as fine and white as Boracay has.

It took us 3 hours from Metro Manila to get there. We stayed at Casa Remo and we rent a room that can accomodate 8-10 people and cost around 6,000php.


There were lots of activities you can enjoy there like snorkeling, banana boat, jet ski, boat ride and many more. We did snorkeling because most of my friends haven't tried snorkeling, we enjoyed floating in the water and watching fishes swimming around the corals. The snorkeling cost us 1,500php because the boat rental was 1,000 which can carry 9 persons and above and we rented
five snorkeling equipments, 100php per gear.
The beach.

So if you want to relax and want a cheap accommodation with white sand beach, try Laiya, its worth it.

I was busy studying for an exam. I'm sorry for not updating the site. So here, starting this June, I'll try to update the blog as often as I can. I also cleaned my links, removed some links that are not active anymore and links that remove me as their link. What else? Oh yes, I changed my blog layout, too lazy to make one so I borrowed one at blogskins.com.

Anyway, time flies so fast. I've been bum for one year and I can't never believe that I have survived! I need to find a job asap and earn some money. That's all. Need to blog hop and meet some new friends.

Day 15. Favourite goal

posted by Aya Empeo at 01:12 0 comments Links to this post
Every goal made by Robin Van Persie hahaha! :D The goal made by the Philippine National Team striker, Phil Younghusband, in Panaad Stadium in Bacolod, Philippines against Mongolian National Team. It was the best for me because Simon Greatwich assisted Phil with a bicycle kick which is really cooooooool!!! And also the save made by another Azkal member, Angel Guirado Aldeguer against Bangladesh by doing a heading which is so coooool! :D

This year is a bit ugly as of now, been weeping and depressed since the start of 2011. I just accepted an awful news last week and once again I've received another one. Everything was ruined, all my plans for this year, everything. But this news won't let me down, it will make me stronger. These struggles made me to stand up and smile after crying, made me to release my emotions and stop to suppress and neglect it. I trust God, I believe in Him. He has plans for me, better plans and I know He won't let me down. I'm still full of Cations, lots lots of them and I don't mind the people who rejects me there still lots of them and its not my loss not being accepted by you. And I think God made this because He knows that you are enough for me, you are not the best plan for me. And once again, I trust God.
