My Day, My Way

Standard

Happy Birthday to ME…Hahahaha!

As early as 6am, I was already up and about.  I prepared myself so that I could attend the 7am mass in Sto. Rosario Parish.  After the mass, I lighted five candles then went straight to the office.  I was really so happy and touch by how my close friends and family expresses their love for me today.

I would like to thank most especially Kring2x for the blog entry that she wrote for me.  I was really touch Kring that it brought tears of joy.  Then, during lunch, she bought me a chocolate cake.  Waaaaaaaahhh!  It was really so sweet of her.  Thank you so much Kring, from the bottom of my heart.(I will just post the pictures of the cake after I transfer them on my pc.)

I was really embarrassed when one of my colleague emailed to all of the employees here in our company announcing of my birthday.  The email has a picture of me that an officemate of mine took for my id.  hehehehe!  But I was thankful for the greetings.  Thanks guyz…

As you might have remembered, I wrote here that I was planning to buy an early birthday gift for myself, since I am already 25 and for me 25 is like a turning point of my life.  So what did I buy?  Well, I bought an Ipod touch 5th gen.  Thanks to my sister who let me use her credit card so that I could buy it.  hehehe!  But that is not my real gift for myself.  It is the courage to take a bold step.  To leave in my comfort zone.

Tonight, together with my family, cousins, Cocoy and Harvey, we will celebrate my birthday in amnesia.  I will just post another entry for that tomorrow.

So far, I really like how my day is going.   I hope it will also end well.

Reminiscing the Past

Standard

I don’t know why suddenly the memory of a friend and a certain happening has just popped-out.  But thinking about it makes me smile and giggle.  Hehehe!

When I was still in my first year in college, I was in a clique.  There were five of us on that group.  Venus, Therese, Jaybie, Jazel and me.  I don’t know what but on the first day of class, we eventually became friends.  The friend that I was talking about that I suddenly remembered is Venus.  A memory of me sketching her face while we were waiting in the study area in the middle of the quadrangle in USJ-R was what I remembered.  The thing why I said that the memory made me giggle is because I wrote the words “Mi Amor” on the sketch.  Hehehe!  I wrote that because we wanted to make a guy jealous.  Hahaha!  It was so silly of us.  Looking back on that memory really put a smile on my face and makes me miss Venus.

Set Fire To The Rain – Adele

Standard

I let it fall, my heart
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they’re strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there’s a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you’d say, they were never true, never true
And the games you play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cry
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

When laying with you
I could stay there, close my eyes
Feel you here, forever
You and me together, nothing is better

‘Cause there’s a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you’d say, they were never true, never true
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/a/adele-lyrics/set-fire-to-the-rain-lyrics.html ]
And the games you’d play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin’ die, ’cause I knew that
That was the last time, the last time

Sometimes I wake up by the door
Now that you’ve gone, must be waiting for you
Even now when it’s already over
I can’t help myself from looking for you

I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin’ die
‘Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, oh

Oh, no
Let it burn, oh
Let it burn
Let it burn

Corazon

Standard

Last Saturday, Kring2x and I agreed to meet-up in SM to watch Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang.  Since, Kring2x and Grace had an early appointment, so Kring2x invited Grace as well.  Before the day that we are going to watch the movie, Kring2x told me that some of her officemates told her that the said movie is not that good.  And that there are no good reviews on the movie.  But we decided to just watch the movie, it will be our own money that we will be wasting anyway if the movie is not good.

We did not see the first 5minutes of the movie, since Kring2x and Grace went back to SM around 5:30 already and the movie will start at 5:30 too.  The movie was good.  I screamed and laughed so much.  Hehehe!  It wasn’t really that scay but it was so gruesome.  Ewwwww!  Especially when Corazon begins eating the children and the animals and when Daniel(Direk) kissed Corazon(Erich) who was already very dirty and I bet smelly.  Hehehehe!  The conclusion that we came up after watching Corazon is that, Aswang is just a crazy woman.  Hehehehe!

Saying Goodbye is Really Sad

Standard

For almost four years, I’ve worked here in my current company. I have gained and lost some friends.(so as weight…hehehehe…) I thought at the time I’m going to leave, I will just be okay. I can still see them if I/they want us to get together. But knowing that I won’t see them everyday like the usual, makes me want to cry. I can no longer make chika to Aime about clothes, shoes and others. I can no longer make kulitan with Lawrence. I can no longer have an heart-to-heart talk with Ilyn. I will no longer eat lunch together with Gemmalyn, Dea, Karlo, Jeraldy and Cocoy. No more snack time with Gemmalyn and Cocoy. I can no longer Kim say "Gwapa ko miss" when he passes by or when Lawrence and I will look at him. I will no longer receive a "Happy weekend, Charry", ip message from JP. No more strict but enjoyable to chika, Ralf. Those are just a few people that I’m surely gonna miss when I leave today. But I hope, even if I will leave, the friendship would still be there.

I WILL MISS YOU GUYS… SEE YOU… MWAAAHUUGZZZ…

Thankful

Standard

This morning, after logging-in to yahoo messenger, I have spotted a news regarding a 16-year old girl who has set herself on fire. It was her intention to kill herself because her husband and her in-laws were so cruel to her. In Afghan culture, it is a taboo to complain. After reading the news, I can really say that despite the bad image of my country, I am thankful because in our culture women are respected. The voice of the women matters.

Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren

Standard

When I was still in college, the book entitled “Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren was one of the most read books.  I got lucky enough that one of my kuya in CMO lend me his copy of the book.  But unfortunately, I was not able to finish the book.  I think I only read chapter one.  Hehehe!  My kuya then asked me to return the book since somebody wants to borrow it too.  Fast forward to 2012, Retchel and I talked about the said book.  She was able to finish the book and told me that I should really acquire a copy of the book and finish reading it.  When we went to MV Logos, I was hoping that I would be able to find a copy there that I could buy, so that I would finally finish reading what I have begun a few years back.

Yesterday, Cocoy and I went to Metro, Ayala because my Lola asked me to buy a cloth and Cocoy wanted to buy shampoo and conditioner.  While paying at the cashier, Cocoy went to look at the displays of hair driers(this is one of my Christmas wish…) to look at the price.  When he came back, he told me that hair driers are very expensive.  I then asked him to buy me a copy of the said book.  So today, we went to National bookstore and he bought the book for me.  Weeehhhh!  So tomorrow I will start reading the book…

Marchian

Standard

Today is the first day of March. Twenty-six days from now, I will be turning twenty-five. Should I be happy about it or get worried and sad? Well, one thing for sure, I will surely be happy about it because God has showered me and my family with so many blessings.

Before February ended, I was intently thinking about my upcoming 25th birthday. Why? I will be turning 25 and I afraid that my birthday will pass without any exciting thing to happen(i.e. travel alone to Iloilo). An idea then came to me. Since, I can’t travel on my birthday because I have work on that day, why not buy something for myself. So that would be it, I will buy an _______. (I won’t tell you what it is now. i will just unveil it on my birthday.) I’m just so excited. With all the things that is happening in my life right now, sometimes it overwhelms me. I just hope and pray that with every decision that I make, for every path that I take, everything will be all right. And it will be.
