“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. 
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. 
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” 
― Mother Teresa

A Breath of Fresh Air

*Me, Zary and Melvin eating at Robinson's food court...

Zary: Hahaha! Ang pangit mo Melvin! Parang Jeffrey lang!

Melvin: Sinong Jeffrey? JEPOY?! Grabe ka naman!!! Pwede ang Marx muna?



It was unintentional for the three of us to meet. But then I was glad that we did! I had a great time chatting with them, updating each other with our lives and sharing our ideas, ambitions and disappointments. The whole experience was like a breath of fresh air to my almost stale life.

I don't really like greeting other moms a happy mother's day. No, I don't have anything against mother's day or against all mothers for that matter. It's just that because of certain circumstances, I don't/can't greet my own mom a happy mother's day. Somehow I feel guilty about it. How can I wish for other moms to have a happy one when I know that my own mother wouldn't?

Me: Coco, gusto mo mangga?

Coco: Bakit? Namunga ka na?

Me: Hahahaha!  :\

* Kinwento ko kay Alej




I was called for an interview in the company where Alej and Coco are having their internship. As soon as I finished my exam and interview, I texted Coco and forced them to meetup with me. Hehehe.

It's been a long time since I was able to bond with them like that. No worries. No hesitations. No guilt. Just us and our genuine happiness. I realized how much I miss how they laugh their lungs out at every joke. Too bad we were only able to bond within their thirty minute break. But still, it was a time well spent.

Back Log: My 21st Birthday

Who says that someone who has already crossed the line of being a teenager to a young adult can’t have a surprise party?

 Well actually, that was what I thought.

I had no idea that my friends were cooking something up for my birthday.

It all started with a simple text from my friend Ira inviting me to a dinner. Of course, I said yes without any questions.

Fast forward. I don’t how, but we ended up riding a cab to Shakey’s Delta.

*This would be a photo heavy blog because I'm too lazy to blog at the moment (I believe that a picture is worth a thousand words, hehe)


Showing off my moves! Hehe

I really am so blessed to have them as my friends family. I LOVE THEM TO BITS <3

Once Upon A Time....

A lot of people, especially those who are at the same life cycle as me are very much familiar with the fantasy-like love story of the movie “A Little Thing Called Love.” You know the typical ugly-duckling-turned-to-a-beautiful-swan type of plot and where the prince falls for the girl somewhere between ‘ugly duckling’ and ‘beautiful swan’.  But I’m not here to tell you about the movie per se. You’ll be better off watching the movie than hearing my version of it.

Now going back, the reason for this post is that when I watched the movie for the second time around with my sister, I just realized that I can somehow relate myself to Nam (The female protagonist). I remember the days when I didn’t care about my looks. I’d go on for the whole day with having combed my hair only once (That’s after I take a bath). I also didn’t wear make-up or put any beauty products on my face because I didn’t like the greasy feel of it. I’d only wear baggy shirts and shorts and slippers when I go out with my friends.  Back then I was living in a world where pumps are devices used to move fluids, wedges are considered as simple machines and platforms are synonymous to stages.

Then one day I met someone whom I consider as my own version of P’shone (The male protagonist). To cut through the chase, because of that guy, I decided to change. Radically. I did things that I once considered as “absurd” just for him to notice me. But in the end, it dawned on me that not everyone can have a fairy tale ending.  A duck will always be a duck and my so-called “fairy godfriends” can only do so much.  

I think I did the right things but for the wrong reasons. In the end, everything was still worth it.

Let Go

I admit that there’s not a day that has passed that I didn’t wish that we could turn back what used to be. I still find it hard to accept “what is” because a part of me is still holding on to “what was.” But sacrifices are certain in the path that I chose and no matter how hard the consequences are I’ll be brave enough to face them, because I know that this is how we’ll all grow. Separately. 

But please, I beg you guys to never forget the memories that we have made and the lessons that we have learned for in time these bonds will help you remember who we really are and why we are doing these things.    

P.S. I love and miss you all.

Just Like the Old Times

End of the preliminary exams! This calls for a celebration!

And the best way to do it? Spend the day with your best friend. 

I miss those days when Tina was still my seatmate and we don’t need to wait for our class dismissal just to share with each other whatever pops out of our mind. We usually talk about anything and everything and we do that even if there’s a professor in front of the class discussing. Hahaha. We just can’t help it.

Now, I’m still thankful because despite of our busy schedules, we’re still able to have our “girl talk” from time to time.  
That’s exactly what we did after our exams. Funny how you see a friend almost every day and still you never run out of things to talk about.

After that we ate ice cream, watched a movie and ate dinner at Santorini and this time we were joined by Zary.

Hope we'll have more bonding sessions like this! :)

I think it was the first time in my life I ever felt like I looked "good". Do you know what I mean? That nice feeling when you look in the mirror, and your hair's right for the first time in your life? I don't think we should base so much on weight, muscles, and a good hair day, but when it happens, it's nice. It really is.

-The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
I walked over to the hill where we used to go and sled. There were a lot of little kids there. I watched them flying. Doing jumps and having races. And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. And all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do. And they will all kiss someone someday. But for now, sledding is enough. I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn't.

-The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
I have decided that maybe I want to write when I grow up. I just don't know what I would write. 

-The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

- The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

Ang Mapang-asar na Bata

Coco the Bear!

*Nakasakay sa jeep, pauwi kasabay ni Coco
*Masama ang pakiramdam ko kaya ayoko magsalita

Ako:    Co, magkwento ka nalang wag ka nang magtanong....
Coco:  Bakit kaya ako nahahayper ngayon? Ikaw 'te Jana sa tingin mo bakit? Ganito ba ako araw-araw? O ngayon lang?
Ako:  (-_-)

Bwisit na bata! Hahaha. :\
