weekend vol.1

wala ako sa mood lumabas ng bahay.  hindi ako sumama sa birthday party ni wayne. hindi rin ako sumama sa city center (mall). instead nanood lang ako movies. :)


pero dahil malapit lang ang al arabi stadium sa place namin, pinagbigyan ko si james manood ng football game nya last friday. hehe  AZKALS vs. Nepal, 3-0

surprise, surprise!

Life is full of surprises...

minsan lang talaga hindi maganda.  tulad ng balita about sa classmate ko sa gradeschool.  hindi maganda. not that may magandang pagkamatay, pero iba talaga eh!  medyo kulang ang kwento ng mga sources ko kaya hindi ko rin maisulat dito. hindi ko masabi na close kami at wala rin naman ako nabalitaan about him sa loob ng matagal na panahon.  naalala ko lang lagi ko hinihiram bike nya noong classmate ko pa sya.  rip J.

yung isang tropa ko na naman, umuwi ng pinas.  wala man lang paalam biglaan daw. nagkaron aberya sa work nya.  nanggulpi daw sya? ahaha nakakagulat yun! hindi ko pa malalaman kung hindi ko sya ininvite sa gaganaping party ng sister ko.

bukas na ang party. excited ako!

ed sheeran is surprisingly awesome dito. i mean for someone who don't dance.

i just love the lyrics! don't be surprise that i'm falling for the song and video. just pure brilliant!

bigyang kulay

habang lahat busy sa fiba world cup na alam nyo naman na wala ako kinalaman sa basketball at wala ako magawa sa buhay, eto nagkulay ulet ako ng buhok. ombre!

medyo happy lang ako sa result. hindi yung tipong masayang masaya kasi wala akong color toner.  medyo orangy tuloy ang kinalabasan imbes na blonde.  pero this will do for now. uulitin ko na lang after a month. 

recently nag experiment ako sa sarili ko dahil wala nga ako magawa sa buhay. 1) make-up na hindi ko mapangatawanan kasi magastos at minsan sadyang nakakatamad.  2) hairstyling na maganda naman feedback from friends.  parang nagsawa na rin kasi ako sa pagpapayat. umiisip na lang ako ng ibang pwede ko pa gawin. tinatry ko pa rin pero hindi ko na pinepressure sarili.  i'm going green! green juice ang hapunan ko. nagbawas na rin ako ng rice intake. 1 rice meal a day na lang.  hmmm so far naachieve ko naman yung "no burgers for august" na goal ko.  sana kahit paano may epekto diba? hehe  

sa friday mag work-out daw kami sa corniche.  zumba.  try lang.  so bumili ako ng outfit na makulay only to find out na black pala ang theme this friday. come on! nasan ang fun kung walang kulay?
bakit hoodies?! sale 10QR (Php114.70 each.  :)  florie you're the best!

Grateful Heart



I've been worrying for the longest time about my future plans.  There have been times that I doubted my decisions. Those doubts and worries only make things seem difficult than they actually are.  They can only make one feel weak.  Most of the time I get frustrated and impatient.  But then I realized it won't do me any good.  I need to breathe, worry less, enjoy life, appreciate the good people I'm surrounded with.  When things get crazy, pause for a while.  Inhale. Exhale. Things will be better.  I said worry less.  A little worrying can be a good thing.  It helps to plan ahead.  Choose the people you incorporate yourself with.  I am blessed to have a family and friends who mostly never understand me but love me anyway.  They are a constant reminder that heaven, angels and miracles do exist and I am never alone in this.

This is another chapter of my life.  Right now, I feel like I am given a second chance to claim my dreams!  The door to the world of opportunities is open and inviting me to have the courage to step in.  I have decided to make a step and there's no turning back.  I am ready!

God's time is always perfect.


Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.  James 1:17

lubos na umaasa

napakarecent ng pitcures na ito, like... last night!  i know it's disgusting and sobrang nakakahiya.  i wanna hide these pictures. i should hide them but no i'm showing them. libre lait!  not that i'm proud of these pictures. in fact disgusted and hiyang hiya ako sa pictures ko na ito.  nakakainis na nakakaiyak na kakalungkot na almost depressing na talaga.  at 67kg, i'm at my heaviest weight by far.

kachat ko kahapon ang isang kaibigan kong undin at namention ko ang aking katabaan. sabi ng undin "wow. good. happy for you".  ??? confused. parang gusto ko sumigaw "mabigat un! ideal for me is 53kg lang" (actually 50kg lang dapat pero target ko is 53kg dahil... gusto ko lang.)
"kaya mo yan. you can say your weight. it means you can manage"... hmm ganun ba yun? nasasabi ko ang weight ko kasi i can't deny na, kasi it's obvious naman.  tama. accepted ko na meron problema sa weight, hitsura at health ko.  kailangan ko ng willingness and determination to solve this problem.  ang pinakamahirap, commitment. sa totoo lang, kanina niyaya ako ng isa pang kaibigan kumain ng pizza for lunch. so tempting! she tried to convince me but when i showed her these same pictures, shocked ang ateh! hindi na nya ako pinilit. hehe

isang barefoot runner and blogger friend naman ang nagremind sa akin about proper diet and exercise. naniniwala ako sa kanya hindi lang base sa mga nababasa at napapanood ko at dahil na rin sa nakita kong pagbabago sa kanya.  epektib!  so i don't have to feel guilty na kumain ako ng chicken adobo.  energy, kailangan ko yun! i'm not planning to starve myself.  kakain pa rin ako ng heavy breakfast, lighter but nutritious lunch at fruits for dinner.  ayoko ideprive ang sarili ko sa mga favorites ko. pero in moderation na lang talaga. i'll say goodbye to sodas.

as i'm writing this post, i'm prepping up for our workout challenge later after work.  hindi pa ito success story, otherwise "before & after" sana ang collage.  this is my journey to healthier life and i sure have a long way to go! hehe

hey kaya ko ito!

next time ko na lang ipakita yung body measures namin ng workout buddy ko. most shocking!

pangalawang ama


4am nagising ako sa isang malungkot na balita...
  
pagkabasa ko ng pm ni rea, “Flo wala na si tatay ni rhonz”, natulala ako.  bumangon ako sa pagkakahiga at umupo.  binasa ko ulet “Flo wala na si tatay ni rhonz”  hindi ako naalimpungatan lang… tuluyan nawala ang antok ko.  tinanong ko anong nangyari.  habang wala syang reply, isa isang bumalik ang mga alaala ni tatay ben.  napaluha ako.  hindi ko kayang tumawag kay rhonz nang mga sandaling iyon.  hindi ko kayang magbigay ng lakas ng loob habang umiiyak.  hindi ko alam ano ang pwede kong sabihin sa kanya na hindi lalong ikadudurog ng puso nya habang pinagdadaanan ang sakit ng nakakabiglang pagkawala ng itay nya. 

si tatay ben.  mapagmahal na asawa kay Nanay Lina.  mabuting ama sa kanyang mga anak at manugang. mapag arugang lolo sa kanyang mga apo.  masayahin.  makulit. maalalahanin. masarap magluto. 1996, college days ko sya nakilala. madalas kaming magpractice ng sayaw sa bahay nila bilang kagrupo ko ang anak nya, si rhonz,  sa school activities na nauwi sa pagkakaibigan.  masasabi kong malaki ang naging bahagi ni itay kung bakit magkakaibigan pa rin kami hanggang ngayon.  naging tambayan namin ang bahay nila na laging bukas para sa amin hanggang makagraduate kami at magkaron ng trabaho.  itinuring nya kaming parang mga tunay na anak.  “ang aking si florie” ang tawag nya sa akin.  magutom na lahat wag lang “ang aking si florie”, yun ang sinisiguro nya.  mula sa pagsuporta nya noon sa mga gusto namin gawin at puntahan bilang mga nagpupumilit maging grown ups at pagpapaalala na kelangan pa rin namin ang patnubay ng aming mga magulang.  alam kong proud sya sa aming magkakaibigan kung paanong proud sya sa dalawang tunay nyang mga anak.

hindi ko pa rin tinatawagan si rhonz.  sa pag uusap namin sa chat naiiyak na ako.

hay mamimiss ko ang itay ben… ang mga paalala twing gagala kaming magkakaibigan. ang mga handa nila ni nanay na pagkain twing dadating kami. ang mga jokes nya.  malalakas na halakhak.  ala eh! ang punto nyang hindi maipagkakaila, di ga?

nakakalungkot na hindi kita makikita at maihatid sa huling hantungan.  saludo ako sa iyo. salamat itay sa lahat.  paalam.

+RIP tatay Ruben Terrenal

remember sunday

i’ve spent a lot of time waiting for things in my life and maybe i even blame a few people for my problems and forgot that i was the one in charge but that’s all done and i’m ready to take control of things in my life.... - molly


just in time naman ang panonood ko ng movie na ito (remember sunday) sa naiisip kong isulat.  nainspire ako ng very light kay molly, alexis bledel.  i'm tired of waiting.  i need changes.  tulad ng paulit ulit ko sinasabi i don't have new year's resolution.  i believe that one shouldn't need to wait for new year to change something in their life.  do it when you feel like it and be very committed to it. the thing with new years resolutions, nagagawa lang sila hanggat bago pa ang taon... like january or february at the most... that's why i prefer goal setting so i have the whole year to plan and do my goals for the year... hehe

here's my list of things i wanna achieve for this year. in no particular order.

1.  get a tattoo. done. check!
2.  open a new savings account and REALLY save every month
3.  get a new job
4.  pay debts and loans
5.  get into sport or physical activities, lose about 15 pounds and maintain a 54kg weight
6.  learn a new application, 3D max
7.  buy dslr
8.  travel on holidays
9.  blog at least weekly
10.  start the house improvement project

daring 2014

2013 has been a great year for me.  more than material things, i've been blessed with the best people in the world.  i was able to spend some time with my family back home which i really enjoyed.  i've gained a few more friends.  i am thankful to our Lord for all of them, my family, real friends and even those who have hurt me.  through them i've learned more about life.  2013 has been tough too but not bad, not at all.  trials are part of this journey. true enough they could either break you or make you stronger.  they have tested my patience, courage and faith... and once again, proven that things could only get better, i could be better!  God is always on my side.


2014 bring it on!
