Why I Love #Olicity

Oliver: “If I’m going to be Oliver Queen CEO, then I can’t very well travel down 18 floors every time you and I need to discuss how we spend our nights.”

Felicity: “And I love spending the night with you. Three–Two–One. I worked hard to get where I am and it wasn’t so I could fetch you coffee.”

So I love Olicity. I know that eventually, according to the comicverse, Oliver Queen will end up with Laurel Lance. 

Okay.

Laurel-Lance-Arrow48a8461c307c1c15c7a8202187dabc9d_DinahLaurelLance

First of all, Laurel (played by Katie Cassidy, but I’m not going to get into that now) is really annoying. There was this one user in tumblr and s/he pointed out that from season 1, laurel was already annoying, and I couldn’t agree more. I really did not like her at all I was all for Olicity. Laurel became such a pain in the ass because first, she was all high and mighty “you cheated on me Oliver and with MY SISTER!” I was like. “LAY IT ON HIM!” and then she got together with Tommy, which was fine. I would have been happy if they kept it that way. I was happy with Oliver having to deal with his feelings for Lauren even if his best friend was dating her and banging her. I get that but then they threw in that love triangle thing, which was inevitable, of course, but I hated it. Absolutely hated it. I was fine with Tommy and Laurel and I would have totally gone to a wedding for those two but NOOO! Also, I hated it when Laurel got super pissed when Ollie and Sara started dating. I get it your sister slept with your boyfriend when you were still dating. Okay I get it, girl. But come on, you mourned Sara and now that she’s alive you’re getting mad simply because of something that happened 5 years ago. Yeah hoes over bros and your sister totally screwed you over by screwing Oliver but you’re not the same girl as you were when Oliver and Sara left and neither are they.
So even if Olirel (which totally sounds like a medicine by the way) is the end game for the comic, I am still holding out that given that they brought in Sara as the Canary, maybe there might be a chance for Olicity to happen and not have it as just fan service. I can cite an example where the CW has taken liberty over the plot, Gossip Girl. In the books, if I remember correctly, Nate, is a main character fought over by Serena and Blair, he chooses Blair then chooses Serena then sails away. So who wanted an ending like that with no resolution (no offense, Cecily von Zeigasar, I do love your books) so they made Blair end up with Chuck. I would have wanted Serena not to end up with Dan (come on!) simply because of what he did (I mean that’s borderline sociopath behavior).

Second, as much as I love Sara, she knows Oliver Queen and his other side, she knows everything there is to know about Oliver and she understands him deeply in a way that Laurel can’t, but sometimes I just feel that even she has too much baggage to bring into that relationship. I love Sara, I do. I mean Sara (played by Caity Lotz) totally kicks ass and is way more proficient in defending herself which is a total plus for any girl. WOOHOO TO GIRL POWER! What irks me though, as I mentioned, was that Sara herself has so much baggage to deal with too, her family, her experience, adjusting to society, League of Assassins, so I think her priority right now, should be herself. My friend and I were discussing the show and he said that eventually I would end up liking the pairing of Oliver and Sara, and I did. I just didn’t like them as much as I liked Oliver and Felicity. I do believe that because I like Sara more than Laurel, and if CW does sort of kinda stick to the comic book story where The Green Arrow ends up with The Black Canary then maybe, I don’t know, by some miracle if Sara will be released by the League of Assasins, then maybe just maybe I would be willing to support that. I appreciate and respect Sara. I really do that’s why I totally prefer her to Laurel. Way better.

Third, any other person, simply put, they might not have as much baggage as Sara but they will never know Oliver, and it would be unlikely that he would ever tell them his secret.  Period. End of story.

                

Finally, this is why Felicity is perfect for Oliver. I know that Sara is way cool and can totally handle herself, and Laurel is supposed to be the end all and be all of the storyline but get this:

1. Felicity knows Oliver and The Arrow. He knows he can trust her. Always. 
2. Felicity, may not know how to handle herself sometimes but then she is brave enough to know what’s at stake. Remember that scene when she was be held hostage by Slade and Oliver was made to choose between Laurel and her. She didn’t beg, and she didn’t ask to be saved. Probably because she had the antidote with her but still. Having a knife to her throat, I would have screamed and fainted. Way brave. 
3. She knows how to stand up to Oliver. I mean how scary does Stephen Amell look when he glares at you? ’nuff said.
4. And whether he likes it or not, he will always have Felicity and he wants to know that Felicity will always have him. Remember that time when Moira was supposed to make a speech, I think, or when she was supposed to be announcing her candidacy, Oliver told Felicity, “you will never lose me.” Oh! That absolutely killed me! Absolutely! Aside from their other scenes!

This wasn’t meant to convince you to be an Olicity shipper but if you were, then YAY! If not, I would love to hear your thoughts on why you ship who you ship!

 

Love Always,

The Graduate

To all my friends who have graduated earlier this year, and just today, congratulations! You’ll rule the world. I know it! I wish all of you the best of luck!

I know it’s not mandatory to give gifts for graduation because it’s your own achievement to have graduated to begin with. Or so they say. Among the countless things that all people all over the world had wanted, want and will want as graduation gifts, the one thing I would really want would be a car.

This was a clip from the movie!

This was a clip from the movie!

Not just any car, the YJ Jeep. I’ve always liked the YJ Jeep ever since I watched Clueless. It was the car that Cher was driving. This is my dream car for my 20s. I’d totally love this car. I’m a girl and some people, I’m not saying all, find it weird that I love cars. I really appreciate the beauty and artistry a car presents, on or off the road. There are a lot of other cars that I would like to have a few years down the line but for now, I’ll be happy with a YJ Jeep.

For all of my friends who got cars when the stepped into college or got one because they finally stepped off,
congratulations and stay safe!

Love Always,
Jaymee

21st

So my 21st birthday is in 4 months so i’m absolutely excited to have it because I don’t really celebrate birthdays unless they’re the big ones. I didn’t want to have a really big birthday so I’m just having a dinner with my friends 🙂

What I really wanted to do is to have it Marie Antoinette style. So I want my friends to be a little bit more dressed up than the usual top with denim shorts. I’ll document everything for my benefit and yours!

This is just a small entry since I’m quite busy with school. Finals are just around the corner and I’ve been busy this past trimester. Hopefully, I’d be more free the next term 🙂

Well, that’s it for now!

Love Always,
Jaymee

Top Ten Tuesdays

I’ll be listing down things that are “top ten” enough for me for this and the past weeks.

Cheesecakes- I love cheesecakes! There is just something about them that isn’t entirely too sweet because it has cheese but it’s also not savory because.. well it’s not. There are amazing Cheesecake places here in Manila and you can click here to see the list made by spot.ph

Lemon Chicken- I ADORE lemon chicken! It’s my favorite Chinese food and that’s saying a lot considering how much I love Chinese food. It’s tang and savory! I absolutely love it. I can actually say I need my lemon chicken fix every week. Usually I get it on Wednesdays because I get out early from school and my dad takes me out for lunch. This lemon chicken is from Yummy magazine but here’s the online recipe for your reference! The way did it in Yummy is (I think) the usual way Chinese restaurants do it, like Chicken and glaze are cooked separately.

Brewed Iced Tea– my auntie makes the best brewed iced tea. I was happy to learn that it wasn’t the fake calorie packed kind that you find in packets. It’s the kind where you actually brew it and add lemon and a bit of honey. I am such a fan of that. Which reminds me, I need to ask for the recipe.

90s Sitcoms– I am a total 90s kid. I was born in 92 so I grew up watching all the 90s shows like FRIENDS (even if I was like… what, 7?), All That in Nickelodeon, Figure It Out, Kenan and Kel and other stuff. I love it! I have that complex where I judge the new generation that worship the new Disney and the new Nick. I feel kinda sad for them too, I mean the 90s shows were WAAAAY better.

Free-cut Classes- I love it when my last classes are cancelled especially during my long days in school. I just love it. ‘Nuff said.

Walking Around- In my place it’s easy to walk around because everything is so near each other. That’s something that I really enjoy about this place. Plus, with my student allowance there’s a lemon chicken place that my driver can drop me by just so I can eat. I introduced that place to my bro and he loved it because his favorite Chinese food , Salt and Pepper Squid is there too for an affordable price.

Last Minute Lunch Plans and Friends- I love having lunch with my friends and I love having lunch with them. To me, lunch is the meal that you don’t really want to take because it’s like pretend dinner. I mean dinner is the meal where you can get steaks, chicken and really yummy meals and breakfast is like a whole ‘nother level of goodness but lunch is like imitation dinner. That’s why I love having lunch with my friends because they make that tedious lunch time into a fun non-boring experience.

Cupcakes- If you live in the Philippines, especially Manila, you would know about this little place in Serendra called Cupcakes by Sonja. I love it. It’s a small little place that specializes on cupcakes. You see in the Philippines it was the first place to actually specialize on cupcakes. They have so many varieties of cupcakes and they don’t mass produce it, they make it in small batches so if you go there late in the evening looking for a Red Velvet Cupcake chances are they are already sold out. Their red velvet cupcake is one of their best sellers. I prefer the Vanilla Sunshine, Vanilla Chocolate, Chocolate Surprise and Lemon Drop. I love those flavors. The Vanilla Sunshine and Vanilla Chocolate have a vanilla cake and a buttercream frosting for the Sunshine and a chocolate buttercream for the Chocolate. The Chocolate Surprise has chocolate cake and chocolate frosting and their Lemon Drop (one of my personal personal faves that aren’t classics) has a vanilla cake with a lemon buttercream frosting. They use top-notch ingredients and my little girl wish is to have a cupcake store in my future house (ala Richie Rich).

Long Hair- I’ve been growing out my hair (or at least trying to without having the urge to cut it). I love long hair. I want long layered hair. I feel like I can do so much with my long hair.

 

That’s it. I’ll see you next time!

Love Always,
Jaymee

Sunday Specials

It’s the end of Sunday here in the Philippines and the school week is gonna start again so I’d like to end the day with the items that made this Sunday special with the… Sunday Specials! WOOHOO!

1) French Toast: What is more enjoyable than French toast on a Sunday morning? NOTHING! A delectable indulgence that we should only have once a week! :))

2) The White Lace Dress: Lovely. Just lovely. I can’t say anything else.

3) Denim Shorts: Casual Sundays are best spent in these babies!

4) Family Dinners: A big family means lots of talk and lots of food. This is the one thing I love with having a big family!

5) Sunday Night Catch Up: Lounging in front of the television and catching up with your shows. I love this! This is one of my favorite things with Sunday. It’s ordinary but I find it special because this is the time that I have for myself and I’m actually writing this as I catch up with my shows. Sometimes I watch re-runs too! 🙂

6) Pajamas: If you don’t go out during Sundays or you decide to go to church (for some) on Saturdays instead, then Sundays are the perfect days to lounge around the house in your jammies! It’s not everyday that you can do that because we have to go to school (or work!) everyday of the week.

The models aren’t just gorgeous but the jammies are just wonderful! They are on my to-do-list in the ‘to buy’ column. As a student, I just depend on my allowance so I still have to wait for that and save from that before I can buy this. BUT I WILL BUY THIS! I PROMISE YOU VICTORIA’S SECRET!

Pajamas from victoriassecret.com 

7) Chocolate: I currently changed my eating routine so it’s only on Sundays that I can eat chocolate 🙂 Sundays are happy days for me. I am a self-confessed chocoholic. :”>

8) Big Time Rush’s Windows Down video: Loved it. Hot boys with a great track, what more can you ask for?

So tell me, what’s on your list by commenting below!

Love Always,
Jaymee
