i was in vigan... missing you

fresh from my vigan escapade with irai, rhonz and otong last weekend i feel recharged! for us four, it was a dream come true. we really had a great time in vigan. planned by irai and rhonz, it was a blast! my bf didn't want me to join the trip without him... he had to work during the weekend. being the stubborn me and this feeling that i needed a break, i disobeyed him and don't want to feel guilty about it. of course it would have been so much fun if he was able join us too. actually, i missed him when i was in vigan.

now he's not talking to me. i don't know what will happen next.

happy kind of sad mode!

gone with the wind

I rent this classic movie for my friend. Never did I imagine that by doing so I was fulfilling one of my dear friend's last wishes. November 15, I was planning to visit her so we could have our usual talk... and see if she liked the movie... but on that same date, minutes before my planned visit, I learned of what happened to her... she's gone. I went to their house crying. I couldn't stop crying. She's one of my inspirations. Just like Scarlet O'Hara in the movie... loving, strong-willed, stubborn, smart & very pretty.

Lhove, i will always remember and miss you...

hold on

yesterday, i visited my dear friend lhove. whenever i can, i hang out sa house nila... so i could stay away from negative thoughts, sadness, boredom... in short to keep me sane. we usually talk about a lot of things. topics like our fave or most hated tv shows, movies, books, people... love life and life in general... or simply catching up on each other. we're always like that. eversince we became friends some years ago, we never run out of things to talk about. may sense man o wala...

nakwento ko kay lhove how happy i am sa nakikita kong changes sa bf ko. the way he reacts to a difficult situations. how he looks at things differently, possitively. changes na kusa na lang nangyari. not that i wanted him to change or something but nakakatuwa lang. i guess, ganun talaga. things change over time and so do people. and those changes in him inspire me. napaisip ako, how come i am so nega these days? ano na nangyari sa dating ako? ang ako na matapang, driven, optimistic... sa mga ganitong kwento at drama ko sa buhay, nakikinig si lhove. thanks to her!

bakit ba ako ganito? di ako pwede magpakita kay lhove na mahina ako. baka manghina rin sya. dapat ako ang nagpapalakas ng loob nya. para hindi nya maisip na hopeless case na sya. dahil naniniwala ako na gagaling sya! she's sick and needed an operation. for more than a year now, nasa bahay lang sya dahil sa kanyang heart condition. there are times na nagrereklamo sa sya dahil sa boredom. nauubusan na sya ng pwedeng gawin para malibang. she even admits that sometimes she wishes na... matapos na lang lahat. matapos ang buhay nya. nahihirapan na sya. pero mas iniisip nya ang sacrifice na ginagawa ng mother nya sa pag aalaga sa kanya. sa mga ganitong usapan, i try my best not to cry. if only may magagawa ako aside from praying na gumaling na sya. sana maapprove na ung medical assistance from the foundation na tutulong sa kanya.

i don't know how to end this... naiiyak na ako.

i was happy until...

i had a great morning. i listnened to the the morning rush, as usual. walang sapi si tita. so maganda umaga ko as i prepare myself to work. kumakanta pa ako ng wanna be by spice girls haha. ayun natakot tuloy ang araw. it's a little cloudy. medyo umambon. walang traffic, ang saya di ba? i arrived at the office on-time. wow! so there, what a great morning to start a day. Until... may isang dalagang ubod ng ganda. chaka-inis. mahaba pa oras. pwede ko pa pagandahin ulit ang araw ko. tanging konsolasyon ko lang is... di lang naman ako ang naiinis sa kanya. meaning di ako ang may problem... sya! hanggang dun lang muna pwede ko sabihin about her... pagbigyan ko sya, matanda na sya.

there's more to life

some people say life is simple. live. love. learn. living is complicated. loving is even more complicated. learning is a never ending process.

On living...
waking up early for work. bad hair day. traffic jam. devious bitches. devil boss. deadlines. paying bills. career. violence. events.

On loving...
loving oneself, family and friends. falling in love. relationship dramas. sacrifices. pointless arguements. breaking up. second chance. leaving. letting go. moving on.

On learning...
choices. consequences. stumbling down and getting up... failure and triumph. ironies. silver linings.

these are just few things we have to deal with to live. the list could go on and on which only proves that life is never easy. unfiar. life is complicated as it is. so i say let's not make it even more complicated. with all the complexities of life... don't forget to laugh!

say a prayer, thank God we are in fact alive!
