Starting today, I will live life day by day.
No more planning.
No more expectations.

Learn to accept everything that’s given to you. Do not ask for more. You’re lucky you still have 2 hands, a nice car, and a peaceful home to go home to, chocolates that makes you happy and families and friends to be there for you (all the time!). People can disappoint you at times, but hey! Life is still good. Don’t waste your time ranting about those people who doesn’t deserve your time and energy. They’re worthless!

They say, “You should find the good in others and life will be easy”.
I wish I can say the same.
Maybe soon….
I’m still working on it!

Weekend was awesome! We saw Yellowcard perform at A.Venue and they were so amazing!!!!

Yellowcard live in Manila

Sucks to be me because I have no voice! I’m on voice rest for a couple of days already! But I still enjoyed watching them. The crowd was unbelievable too! Madness!!!!

Here’s the list of my favorite songs they sang. The last 3 songs were the finale songs which I really really love!
- Breathing
- Believe
- Inside Out
- Way Away
- Five Becomes Four
- Fighting
- Empty Apartment
- Light Up the Sky
- Ocean Avenue

Sharing one of my favorite verse in one of their songs!

♪♫ It's okay to be angry and never let go
It only gets harder the more that you know
When you get lonely if no one's around
You know that I'll catch you when you're falling down
We came together but you left alone
And I know how it feels to walk out on your own
Maybe someday I will see you again
And you'll look me in my eyes and call me your friend ♪♫

Now, I’m excited for Anberlin who’s coming also this March. I’m hoping to get a photo with them too! Weeee!!!!

Birthday Love!

Taken at my office workstation

This is a month delayed, I know! I've been busy with life. :))

Last month was my birthday month and you know that means? January is all about me. What I want to eat, where I want to go, what I want to buy and anything I want to do. My birthday celebration at home was somewhat different. It was our family’s post Christmas celebration. Everyone was there and we did have fun. It’s everyone’s birthday too with all the gifts we received that day.

Yo took me out on a date that night. Shopping, ribs, burger, fries and wine. We’re getting used to drinking red wine these days. We don’t like drinking beers and hard drinks anymore. Does it come with the age? Damn! We’re old! Hahahaha! I don’t care! I love it and it’s good for my heart (as long as I don’t finish 1 bottle everyday). :D We also had an overnight get away in the city. We tried to escape the troubles of life by locking ourselves somewhere where nobody can haunt us. *wink* I know what you’re thinking right now. Sorry, I’ll stop your fantasies right there. That’s not exactly it. We enjoyed the day walking, eating, swimming, drinking and talking. It’s always nice talking to him. I hope to spend more nights like these with him.

And then, my lovely team surprised me when I get back from my birthday vacation. Mala Amnesia Girl and surprise nila. I am very blessed with good friends in my life. Thank you for all the well wishes. My Amnesia Girl, by the way, is a local film which I love. It’s a romantic-comedy film that uses cheesy, corny pick-up lines. It was my first local film date with Yo also. Napilit ko sya manood ng tagolog movie after 3 years of being together. That movie made us laugh.

There are a lot of things I bought also for myself. IPhone (this was purchased way in advance! hahaha! shoes, dress, bag, and recently, fisheye ripcurl) Sigh! What a great way to start the year. But starting today, no more shopping for me. *fingers crossed* I need to save more. I’m not getting any younger! This is for my kids, you know? Friends, please pray for me. :D

On Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day, 2011

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and most of the people in the office were out to celebrate. Good for them! I’ve got colds and my boyfriend’s sick too. So we decided to just have a simple dinner which turns out to be a disaster. Hahaha! Boooo!!! Dinner reservation failed! The food was average, nothing special at all. But that’s fine. Not a big of a deal, really. We do not prepare something big for this day like any other couples. Ayaw na naming makigulo sa gulo ng araw ng mga puso. Everyday is Valentine’s Day for us. *wink*

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Taken at Eastwood Mall

I miss home, I miss the tikoy and all the food and preparations we do for Chinese New Year. We're not Chinese but it won't hurt to follow rituals, right?

C'mon! Who does not need good luck?

Alone Time

Taken somewhere in Macau :D

Once in a while, it’s nice to have some time alone. Reading your favorite book or listening to your favorite music or just doing nothing. Go on retreats, travel alone or do something you like on our own.

For me, this is something I needed. I realized that last year. One of the things I’d like to do this year is to travel alone and spend more time with myself. Most of the time, I’ve been thinking about other people. Whether it be my parents, sisters, relatives, friends or boyfriend. Now, I’d like to pay more attention to Anna, Marie or Pot. I have learned a lot about love and about life. Through the challenges I’ve been through, I became a stronger woman. Other people might not agree on this change but somehow, I like it. I wanted to be better and I think this is the best version of me so far.

Okay ka lang ba talaga?

This is for you my friend......
Sana tamaan ka na! Hahahahaha!

"Dahil mahal kita, ayaw kitang masaktan. Pero gusto rin kitang lumigaya."

May isang lalaki, type mo.
Mabait, may humor, matalino at kaya kang buhayin.
Kaso may gusto syang iba.
Mas bata, mas sexy
Madalas mo silang makitang naglalandian.
Nasasaktan ka.
Paghanga pa ba o pag-ibig na?
Umamin ka na!

Hndi ko alam hanggang kalian ang kahibangan na ito.
Ako na lang ang susuko para sa iyo.
Mahirap kalabanin ang puso, lalo na kung kasundo ang isipan mo.

Masaya akong nakikita kang nakangiti
Pero sa bawat sandali,
Bakit mas madalas ang pagsisisi?
Na sa dinami dami ng lalaki
Bakit ikaw pa ang napili!

Okay ka lang!
Tanggap mo na!
Bigkas mo sa bawat sermon
Sana sa bawat katagang binibigkas mo
Naiisip mo.....
Na may lalaki rin na nag-aabang ng pagmamahal...
At atensyon mo.
