tequilla +

So… Am I a drunkard now? Nah… Just wanting to spice up my life. Ha! :p

“the oldies”

“the kiddies”

The 7th birthday party of Zane Matthew (A’s son) turned into “oldies” soiree! As usual, I was oblivious about the details of the affair. Shhhhh… my attire was kinda out of place. Anyhow, I did manage to pull it off. Thanks to the Lia Sophia bling-bling. I must admit, it did give a “classy” impact on my chic rocker (a.k.a. rakista) babe look.    Come on Chris W., I know you agree. 😉

chillaxin!

cutee 🙂

The after party left a feeling of deja vu! (click here to read related article -> “paralyzer”). I think, I should change my name from “the curious me” to “the clueless me”? The after party was held in A’s residence. It was lightened up by her gorgeous “Pakistani” daughter, S. Whoa! S is so fond of Pakistan and sure has a talent in mimicking the Pakistani accent (no pun intended). She’s totally amazing!

In no time, the tequilla (+ bacardi) session started rolling! And what do you know, the topic was directed to my single status!  It can’t be helped… they all have partners and I was the “lonesome” spinster in the group. Ha! All I can say is, most of the time, it pays to enjoy “singleblessedness” before converting to “couple trouble” status.   (click here to read related article -> wedding)

Thank goodness! The hoopla about my single status got diverted when they all started doing the videoke. Filipinos love to sing and can definitely carry a tune more than anyone else in the whole Universe (Ignore me. It’s innate for me to be patriotic!  ). And Ellen DeGeneres surely  agreed! :p

However, there’s always an exemption. I’m one of them.  I can do some “jiggy moves” but I can’t really sing (click here to read related article -> “singing”). It drives me nuts! Arghhhh! :p

Conclusion:
Tequilla + Videoke + Light Bantering + Excellent Company = Super Duper Mega Over Stress Free Night!!!

Love it!!!!!!!!

P.S. I love tequilla! Promise!

I know this is an awfully late post but…  it’s better to be late than later!  I  want to commemorate the day when I tweeted like crazy and “freeze” the divine moment when I’ve mingled with such exceptional and groovy geeks!

It’s definitely a learning experience for me… It is quite similar to the Youth I.T. Congress in the Philippines but the barcamp is more intimate due to the limited number of participants. Thus, there’s a greater interaction between the participants and the speakers. And most of all, the registration was free  as well as the food and drinks plus a souvenir shirt! Love it!:D

The topic that caught my attention the most was Chris Morix and Ryan Smith’s, How to Create an Award Winning Blog in 6-months. Yeah, I’m a blog fanatic.  Moreover, Chris and Ryan were really hilarious speakers and their chemistry was absolutely terrific!

Alec Baldwin

While we have something to be happy for comes the end of Thursday, The Soulful Vixen has some other reasons: aside from the fact that Friday is the start of the weekend, she just happened to get a tweet from one of the most versatile actors of all-time, Mr. Alec Baldwin, who recently joined Twitter few weeks ago.

I know the whole story because I am following @TheSoulfulVixen.

So, it started with just a simple tweet about The Rolling Stones songs. Mr. Baldwin tweeted several of his picks. The Soulful Vixen in return mentioned ever liking “Time Is On My Side”. Charmed! And just like that, Mr. Baldwin didn’t hesitate to tweet more of his picks to The Soulful Vixen which are pretty much blues and in line with “Time Is On My Side”. And that makes The Soulful Vixen one helluva lucky girl!

So what’s the big deal? IT IS A BIG DEAL to get a tweet from the one and only Alec Baldwin. After all, he’s not just an actor you see on TV. He appears on film, stage, and television. After all, he IS Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock on NBC.

After all, he starred in movies like Beetlejuice, Great Balls of Fire, Miami Blues, Alice, Prelude to a Kiss, Malice, The Getaway, The Shadow, The Juror, Notting Hill, State and Main, The Acting Class, Mercury Rising, Cats & Dog, Pearl Harbor, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, It’s Complicated, and a LOT MORE. Which earned him two Emmy Awards, three Gold Globe Awards and six Screen Actor Guild Awards.

IT IS A BIG DEAL because out of thousands of followers he has, and millions of twitter followers that are probably tweeting him, he happened to tweet to The Soulful Vixen.

IT IS A BIG DEAL because The Soulful Vixen got in to the first 100 tweets from Mr. Baldwin.

IT IS A BIG DEAL because I betcha, she’s the first and only Filipino to be tweeted by a Mr. Alec Baldwin.

And why not? If you want to find out, you gotta follow @TheSoulfulVixen.

Pictured below is a screenshot of Mr. Baldwin’s tweet, telling it all in caps as to put emphasis on the songs he liked from The Rolling Stones.
