Last Tuesday was clearance day, which I think is utterly pointless because we don’t need the “clearance” paper in order to enroll, but it’s an excuse to go to UST, so whatever.
Anyway, the YC Buddies went to TriNoma to have a little fun. This is special because all seven of us are rarely together if we’re not in UST.
The TriNoma branch of Yellow Cab is where we first bonded, on August 14, 2009 (I remember it because it was my birthday). Aya christened us the YC Buddies after that.
Smiling because we just attacked a pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Dayuuum, gurlz, y’all are fine. Lawl.
After window shopping at Team Manila, where they had to drag me away from the racks of black shirts, we went to Powerbooks. I blew most of my money on an Aimee Bender book titled An Invisible Sign of My Own, but it was so worth it.
I also saw a collection of stories by authors like Neil Gaiman, Jodi Picoult, and Chuck Palahniuk, among others. It costs around PHP1200. I put it on my long list of books I shall buy once I get my Amex (which, by the way, will arrive sometime in the coming week).
I think we took pictures at every ride and game there.
That’s my score right there. Fuck yeah.
I just love Time Crisis 4.
LOL at my “fierce” face.
Videoke after playing games.
We had to wait a bit because all the booths were occupied.
Gab & I scored this, thankyouverymuch.

I really enjoyed belting out that last song. I can’t hit dem high notes a la Rachel Berry, but I did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself. (Soprano 2 in my high school glee club, I was.)
And to finish, some more pictures of us, because you really need to see this:
Ela is a twentysomething who is constantly getting stuck in self-destructive behavior and bouts of low self-esteem. She struggles with depression and writes to relieve herself of her feelings. Sometimes she even blogs about other things like makeup and positivity. One of her pieces was published in the Inquirer Young Blood in October 2017.
She likes cats, dogs, and sometimes even people.
