Guilty as Charged!

Many of us have at least one guilty pleasure that we enjoy despite feeling regretful for getting a kick out of it, and I am no exception to the rule. While mine is relatively less ridiculous than most celebrities’, I will share some of them with you today:

JAPANESE FOOD

Whenever my family and I are out on a lunch or dinner date and my Dad asks where we want to eat, I’d always go for Japanese. Regardless if we’ve had Japanese almost every week, I’d still pick sushi, sashimi, or a bowl of spicy ramen over steak and pasta. You feeling hungry now?

HAIR COLORING

I’ve recently had my hair chopped off, and I had it colored again [to a fake blonde] to complete the new look. When I got home from the salon, Dad asked me, “Why don’t you like your natural hair anymore?” I just shrugged and realized that I haven’t had my hair grow out to reveal its natural color in years. 

EVERYTHING CHANNING TATUM

My girl friends know for a fact that I have a huge crush on Channing Tatum. My strong admiration towards the actor started when I saw the film, Step Up, who he co-starred with his now-wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. I thought he was so adorable, hence he became my eye-candy. When I watched the movie adaptation of the best-selling novel, Dear John, that’s when I associated him with my now-husband who was a former soldier in the US Army. 

It came to a point that I listed down several of Channing’s movies, those I have never heard of nor seen in cable TV, and downloaded some of them. I may have watched 8 out of 15 movies I came up with, and that’s telling something. My most favorite so far is 21 Jump Street, which is by far the funniest movie I have ever seen. I liked it so much that I don’t mind watching it over and over again on DVD or cable TV.

ICE CREAM/FROZEN YOGURT > CAKE/PASTRIES

Unlike most people, I don’t possess fondness for chocolates or sweets in general. However, I prefer fruit-flavored ice cream or fro-yo over cake and pastries at any given time or day. The more sour they are, the better! I think only Mom and I share the same liking towards this preference when it comes to desserts.

STATIONERY AND OFFICE SUPPLIES

I actually tweeted about this the other day, and I realized that my love for stationery grows fonder by the day. If I were to make an inventory of all office supplies I own at the moment, you’ll be surprised to find more than a dozen of colorful pens in my pencil case, several steno notebooks, and hard-bound journals in my stash. I always bring a pen and a notebook in my purse when I go out because I often jot down notes or random stuff that eventually land in this blog. 

Want to get rid of me at the mall? Leave me at a bookstore, and you won’t have to worry about me for a solid three hours. 

KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS, #RICHKIDS OF BEVERLY HILLS, & ERIC AND JESSIE

Before anything else, don’t judge. Whenever I decide to watch TV, I always browse through movie channels first. When no interesting movie is on, I channel surf and I somehow end up on E!. One of these is always on: showing either a re-run or a new episode. (Alibis…)

So how much do I know of these shows?

  • Well, I sympathize with Khloé whenever Kim gets into her nerve. I believe Ko-Ko has a good heart; she always has her family’s best interest at heart, and that’s what makes her more real than everyone else.
  • Despite a considerable animosity between Morgan and her mother, I think she showed her purest of heart in that episode when she revealed about her brother, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia at 22. It takes a lot of courage to admit to one’s self, more so on national TV, how certain family issues affect you, demonstrating how a seemingly perfect life isn’t always what it looks like.
  • Of course, who doesn’t find Eric and Jessie adorable (despite the excessive public display of affection)? 

CHEETOS® CRUNCHY CHEDDAR IN JALAPEÑO FLAVOR

ULTIMATE. GUILTY. PLEASURE. I could down a bag of this junk food in one sitting if I want to. Need I say more?

You see, I may have other guilty pleasures more than I care to admit, but I will save those for later. If you find any of these repugnant, well, shoot me! I just wish yours aren’t any more off-putting. I kid, I kid.
