Book Review: Disastrous (Disastrous #1) by E.L. Montes

Disastrous (Disastrous, #1)Disastrous by E.L. Montes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

this is the last book i read before starting my new (and quite hectic job).the book started good, then got annoying and boring (snooze-worthy) midway that i stopped reading and kept putting it off for a few days until last night while trying to sleep out the first day jitters lol. anyway, turns out it got better towards the end when the revelations and drama came out. looking forward to the 2nd book as the end left us quite hanging.

Music Wednesday : MKS – Mutya/Keisha/Siobhan BOYS acoustic


currently foaming in my mouth, dying, obsessing, and having all feels for this short 1:41 acoustic version of Mutya/Keisha/Siobhan or MKS ‘ new song ‘BOYS’.

a teaser for the anticipated new album of the original line up of English girl band, the Sugababes, the girls did not disappoint as we see a glimpse of what could’ve been what Sugababes’ 2nd album would sound like had Siobhan didn’t left the group in 2001 following the success of their well received debut album One Touch which features the critically acclaimed 1st single Overload.

Uploaded on the eve of 7th January, Manila time, on member Keisha’s YouTube channel, features, a stripped down, acoustic with perfect harmony; saves my ears from another “boy nudging song” released earlier this week.


We’re over, so over, thought you could diss me then come kiss me, I told yah
Never love anyone that’ll make you feel ordinary, oh baby
I’m observing that I’m not the only one that’s getting hurt in love,
there’s other ladies
Boy stop, step away
Ain’t got no time for mr messy heartbreak
So stop, not today
Think you can break me but just watch me get away
Downtown he took a dinner on my credit card receipt the other week, why baby?
Call it women’s intuition or maybe telepathy, either way I’m not crazy
We’re over, so over, thought you could diss me then come kiss me, I told yah
We’re over, so over, I’m little missy sitting pretty tonight

[NueveD] Christmas Party 2012

Saddest thing about this year is that we are now down to only 4… 3 bailed on us, while the other 2 are understandably out of the country.

Like the previous years, we indulged ourselves into our favorite hobby: Picture taking! These are some of my favorite shots.

group shot no. 1 we do not have a tripod this time so we had to do “volunteerism”



i know, i know, Joycelyn had the best shots…


Joyce.. again

our self-taken shot using Joyce’s Note II

group shots again

isn’t the sunset lovely?

hope ya’ll have a merry one! 

Music Wednesday: Bridgit Mendler’s Ready or Not

Bridgit Mendler’s Ready or Not

Hello , my name is (Bridgit)
Nice to meet you
I think you’re famous
Where have i seen you ?
You’ll be my William ,i’ll be your Kate living like a fairytale

We could have a palace
right next to Oprah
37 Cars and a yacht
down in boca
Take me away , wherever you say , yeah we could be setting sail

ok. i have to admit i didn’t pay attention to Bridgit Mendler all these years because she was packaged and marketed by Disney as the next Miley Cyrus after the end of Hannah Montana and i thought she’s just another Selena or Miley with mediocre  talent in singing and acting.

I first saw Bridgit in JONAS, and i’d be honest i didn’t find her charming enough to be a lead Disney girl. But then it wasn’t really her first acting stint after all; she has been in several shows and movies prior to that. Still i wasn’t sold.

I found Ready or Not on PopDust’s Year End List , making at top 9 , and i was like, really? within the ranks of .FUN and Frank Ocean? (but then again it has One Direction, so….)  . i got curious and remembered just a few days ago, Bridgit Mendler trended on twitter, apparently she’ll be performing on X-Factor, so i clicked the video, and the first thing i noticed was her voice. I never imagined that voice coming from her. It is husky,slightly carribean, reggae-ish and not very pop-ish. very different from the usual Disney voice. It wasn’t the best performance in the world, so i clicked another video and that was when i began to appreciate the song. then finding out she actually co-wrote it. Damn Girl is talented!

i’m gonna be looking out for this girl more!:)
