Because I want to attend a blogging conference in Pluto

..and I have no idea how to get there and when but what Cassie wants, Cassie gets. 

I am new to the blogging world. Started only 3 years ago. To be honest, I don't have any idea why I give streetsmart fashionista tips to people when most of them won't even give a single care. Hahaha! But I love blogging and I love reading blogs.. and answering questions too! So I was really thrilled when THE Great Kate tagged me a blog with questionnaires that I need to answer in order for me to be qualified for the blogging conference to be held somewhere in Pluto. Wow, that was a long sentence. But Pluto deserves long sentences, so whatever.. Let me answer them questions already! 

1. Are you named after someone?

Yes. My first name Ckassandra was given by my foster parents in an attempt to give some class on a name that my biological parents gave me. They loved the Cassablanca movie and thought it rhymed with Ckassandra. However, this first name was not listed as a legal name because my smart biological parents won't sign the adoption papers.. so there.. not a long story at all. My second name however has an even shorter story. My biological mom loved Alma Moreno (only God knows why) and Alma Moreno's real name is Vanessa. And that's why I loath that name. Seriously. 

2. When was the last time you cried?

5 hours ago because of Angel Locsin's acting in The Legal Wife. (What? I can't help it!)

3. Do you have kiddos?

Leigh and Kobe, my cutie patooties

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend to yourself?

No, because I would be annoyed of her. Wait, what? 

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Yes. Seeing my ex live a miserable life. Sweet! :) (Answering this particular question gave me pleasure!)

6. Do you like your handwriting?

Yes. I'm in love with it. 

7. What’s your favorite cereal?

The ones with dried fruits in it! 

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?

The way they dress and their shoes. Says a lot about a person. *winks Kate. 

9. What is your eye color?


10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Happy Endings hands down. My friends berate me all the time for being the only one who hasn't seen Insidious yet because I don't watch scary movies. -- I don't have to edit this. Kate's answer is exactly what I have in mind just like in Q #8

11. Favorite TV show?

There are a lot of TV shows that I got hooked on like Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, 2 Broke Girls, Heroes, etc.. but there's only one sitcom that I won't get tired watching over and over agaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiin. 


12. Summer or Winter?

I'd love to experience snow but I'm a beach babe so summer all the way! - Same here! Sorry Kate I'm too lazy to edit. You know I love the beach. :p

13. Hugs or Kisses?

Hugs! They are warm and genuine and comforting! - Like seriously Kate, why are you copying my thoughts? Ughhhh. 

14. What’s the farthest you've ever been from home?

New York.. because my mom is my home. :'( But seriously? Manila... 

15. Do you have any special talents?

I consider singing, dancing, and song writing my regular talents so my special talents would be annoying people and making them leave me. 

16. Where were you born?

Rumor has it that my biological mom gave birth to me in a trike while trying to reach the provincial hospital and that it was raining heavily. I never got the chance to confirm that. We never really had that mother-daughter talk. I hope it's true though, being born in a neat hospital is so mainstream. 

17. What are your hobbies?

Singing. I won't last a day without singing. 
Cooking. It's my stress reliever. 
Reading books. Keeps me sane. 
Taking pictures of my son while he's sleeping. 

18. Do you have any pets?

No. I hate pets. 

19. Favorite movie?

Oh gosh, there are a lot! But here are the movies that I can watch over and over again like I've never watched it before. 

Feels like home to me
On Wednesdays, we wear pink.
Seriously, who doesn't??

Childhood Christmas time memories

If you're a bird then I'm a bird

"You want to know something weird? I discovered the law again!" Damn, this movie made me want to be a lawyer as a kid! 

20. What color is your car?

I don't have a car. Yet. ;) 

21. What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I was a kid, I only wanted one thing.. a perfect family. With that want was the dream of being a housewife, a good mother and a good wife. I dreamed of serving my husband and being a hands on mother to my kids. However, that dream was crushed many years ago. Now that I am all grown up and believed to have matured, I only want one thing.. and it's still having a perfect family. I am almost there, I believe. :) 

I know I have to tag someone but the only blogger that I know already tagged me this. Give me sometime. I have yet to befriend bloggers. Hello? Anyone?

UPDATE: Thanks to one of the best people that I know, I finally have someone to tag here! Check out her her tumblr account, pretty cool stuff! She has a wordpress account too if you want to see more of her personal stuff. Thank you Avy!
