Sometimes I wish that I were born on the 29th of December instead

Hey! It’s been so long since I have posted in this blog… Hahaha. For about 25 days ago.. Anyway. Well, yeah. As you’ve seen on my title, my birthday is a day before the 29th. In short, the 28th of December. Maybe, you’d be raising your eyebrows and mutter to yourself that you don’t give a shit in whatever I post. In my defense, this is my blog and I just want to type anything that flows in my mind. Haha πŸ™‚ Kidding. I know that I make some lousy introductions in my blog but please let me have this one okay? After all, it’s my day. Haha. :). So here I go…

Ever since I turned 16,Β something has jinxed one of my favorite days of the year, the 28th of December. I do know for most of us, we consider our day special, in a sense that we could possibly relax or do anything that we’d love to do. However, something bad happened that day. And I can’t remember but I knew that it was really the start of my jinx. (As awful as it sounds, I kept jinxing my birthday and I tend to get negative vibes during the day itself. And for seven years straight. Huhu.)

Although I tend to get pissed off every birthday that I have for seven years straight, something good happens the day after :). Yeah. So sometimes I feel like 29 is the legit day that I was born. =))

I won’t go into details about what happened in the 28th of December but I’ll just fast forward to the day after. πŸ™‚

December 29, 2014

I woke up at exactly 5:30 am despite our late arrival last night. I checked my tablet and saw the time so I just read some manga and waited for 6:30 am so I could take a shower and fix myself. I tried calling my friend Paulina because we’re supposed to meet at 7:30 am but she’s not yet answering my calls. When it was 7:00 am I started panicking because I realized that maybe she’s still asleep. And hence, our meeting was postponed for about 2 hours. And we’re delayed by two hours. 😦 *sobs*. Anyway, when I met her, I saw that she was quite guilty because her cousins arrived last night and they bonded. Usual chatting and stuffs that cousins do. And unfortunately, she slept past 3 am and that’s one valid reason why she’s late. So, to make up for the lost time, she bought me an egg mcmuffin meal. Haha. I haven’t eaten any breakfast yet and she already ate at home. =) But still, we ate during our Trip to Cavite. Haha. πŸ˜‰

We had a fast trip up and arrived at Bacoor at 11am. However, the traffic enforcers were rampant there. So, we arrived at our meeting place BDO, Imus at 11:45 am. I seriously knew that Allison, our driver was indeed annoyed. Hahaha. Sorry Allison! Upon meeting him, we both sat at the back seat in order to annoy him and make him feel like a driver during our trip to tagaytay. I do know that he really was quite annoyed but I really like to annoy my close friends so what the hell. =)

Hey! Don't be mad at us, here's Teddy, he could sit on the passenger's seat so you won't be lonely. :)

Hey! Don’t be mad at us, here’s Teddy, he could sit on the passenger’s seat so you won’t be lonely. πŸ™‚

As Allison was driving, we got into usual topics about love, heart breaks and some sort of signs that we both were praying for. I even told them stories and they were quite amused and horrified at the same time. I just went poker face for a while. :). So it was about past 1 pm when we arrived at Tagaytay. Allison was annoyed because I was consistent in asking him if we’re near tagaytay. And because he was annoyed at some point, he told me this, “Anong akala mo sa Tagaytay, sa Kanto lang?” or in english, “Do you think that Tagaytay is just around the corner?” I laughed really hard. HAHA. I told them that I want to eat Bulalo since Tagaytay is famous when it comes to that food. To be honest, I really would love to explore more with these two but I have to meet my high school friends at around 6 so, we literally JUST ATE at TAGAYTAY.

Anyway, after some thorough annoying discussion we’ve decided that we would just eat at Bulalo Point. And we were really trying to figure out where the hell it’s located because our driver said that it’s located past picnic grove that we never found out that there’s also a branch near us. As in literally outside. And when I noticed, I laugh hard. I said. “Eh ayun lang pala yung BulaloPoint eh!” Allison apologized and it was really comical. =)

Outside Bulalo Point that was only around the corner! :)

Outside Bulalo Point that was only around the corner! πŸ™‚

Upon arrival, I’ve noticed that there are many people inside that restaurant. It seems that this restaurant is popular and I thought that maybe it’s safe to eat there since there are many people eating when we arrived. True to my guess, that restaurant didn’t disappoint me because when the food arrived, I really wanted to dig in right away. Plus it’s really cheap for this amount of food.

It's Lunch Time!

It’s Lunch Time!

I only spent less than 1000 pesos for this meals with rice and drinks included. Haha. The food was really delicious especially the Bulalo. That Bulalo which is already good for 3-4 persons, you can only get at the price of 300 pesos. :). Sulit na sulit. Plus the view was really good and it’s cold. So it’s nice to eat some warm soup there. πŸ™‚

Yeah. We're enjoying our meal :D

Yeah. We’d enjoyed our meal πŸ™‚ ❀

Plus there’s this some serenading group. As in, you’d never imagine that you’d be serenaded. I thought that they were just singing because someone had their birthday or what. Or they just called them so that they’d sing for them. I never imagined that they’d be singing right behind us. I can’t even remember what they sang first and then the girl asked what song I’d like to hear. I told her Fall For You by Secondhand serenade. However, the group doesn’t know the chords, so the lady just improvised a song. And I was really surprised when I heard her singing “Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran”. It was really like a WTF moment. :'(. Of all songs, why that? Huhu </3

Seriously. of all the songs. Why that? :(

Seriously. of all the songs. Why that? 😦

So I never even imagined that Allison was recording my reaction to that song. Boy. the video was really hilarious and no, I’m not gonna upload that video. :P.

Hello Ed Sheeran!.

Haha. I even inserted the song. So anyway, continuing my story. I paid and we left there towards our next destination, Rowena’s. Upon our arrival at the place. We were like little kids because we were forced to park underground and our car was the only one parked there. Pretty creepy, ‘ayt?

Seriously, what were we doing here??

Seriously, what were we doing here??

Then we headed upstairs and saw the beautiful view there. So we started to take pictures first before we went inside the cafe.

Breath taking view

Breathtaking view

And so far, here’s my favorite picture of them all.

Tehee. That pose. :)

Tehee. That pose. πŸ™‚

I know right. Sorry for my vain-ness! hahaha. πŸ™‚ Anyway, we decided to have dessert at Rowena’s and I ordered a blueberry cheesecake and the two of them ordered red velvet cake. :). I’ve had enough of Red velvet. And they weren’t really lying when they told me that the pastries and cakes at Rowena’s are definitely one of the best. :).

Taste of Heaven  β™₯ :)

Taste of Heaven β™₯ πŸ™‚

And we also managed to take pictures during our stay. Hahaha. Damn. Sometimes I wonder if I just somehow become a cam whore when I’m with them. =)



Afterwards, Paulina and I went North Bound and thankfully, Allison drove us up to MOA. Seriously, it was way too traffic and I really panicked. Oh by the way, we have a music video of Ed Sheeran’s thinking out loud but I wouldn’t upload it anymore because it’s way too embarrassing… So, I became nice and sat in the passengers seat. and we’re off to manila! =)

Take me into your loving arms. β™₯ β™ͺβ™«β™ͺ

Take me into your loving arms. β™₯ β™ͺβ™«β™ͺ

Upon arriving at MOA, I noticed it’s already 15 minutes to 7 pm and I really panicked. But fortunately, Paulina and I just road a taxi and we arrived at Glorietta 5. We went to Yabu for our dinner. Paulina met my best friend Rona and close friend Iryss. πŸ™‚

Dinner with them :)

Dinner with them πŸ™‚

I really am full by that time that I just forced myself into eating what’s in my plate. I’m sorry but I didn’t enjoy my dinner well. Hahaha. Sorry.. πŸ™‚ After dinner, we went to see the lights and it was really magical.

HS Friends at Ayala Lights <3

HS Friends at Ayala Lights ❀

Hello there best friend! :)

Hello there best friend! πŸ™‚



Breathtaking Lights

Breathtaking Lights

I really enjoyed seeing those lights even though it was only due for a short while. Haha. Upon riding MRT on the way home, my wish to see fireworks that night was fulfilled. I saw a beautiful fireworks display and then I knew, I really had a blast.

Plus, even though I arrived late at home. My dad let me be. He didn’t scold me or what-so-ever. πŸ™‚ I do hope that next year, the 29th of December would still be awesome! πŸ™‚

And there you have it guys :P! OMG! Look at the time. It’s already 7:30 PM and I haven’t even finished reading chapter 3. I’m soooo dead. Gosh. I need to pick up the pace now. 😦 huhu. Have a great night/day everyone.


If Holding Grudges had an Interest, I’d probably be a Millionaire now.

So you’ve noticed my off-title right? Well. To be honest, I am that kind of person as well. I do hold grudges too. Who doesn’t, right? Maybe if that person exists, his patience would extend up to infinity, don’t you think?

Although I hold grudges, I still know how to appreciate people. I hold my friends dearly. You may not believe it but when I really consider someone to be my true friend, I would really go out of the way just to help them. I’d literally be a goody good shoes friend that would help them clean up their mess and smack their face towards reality (If only needed). It’s just that I really value them that much that I’m willing to do all lengths for them. However, due to that attitude, I am always taken for granted by some of those friendly users.

Anyway, I do know that it’s not healthy to bear grudges. But still, you just can’t help but curse that person who did something really really hurtful to you and you know that you cannot avenge yourself, so you have no other choice but to keep it in. Until I just can’t hold it anymore and then I explode. Haha. Yeah… Seriously.

However, I could possibly hold a grudge against someone when that person really angers me up to the point that I want that person back into his mother’s womb. But, let me tell you a thing or two. I don’t get angry easily. I sure do get pissed off from time to time but if ever by any chance you angered me. Well. congratulations. πŸ™‚ You just earned a ticket to hell.

To sum up, I am not your typical average forgiving person. It really takes time when I forgive someone else. One, Two, Three years, or maybe even at your last breath. Pretty sad, right? :O

Because High school was indeed “AWESOME”

June 18, 2014

It has already been fiveΒ years since I have my Alma Mater. Looking back, all I ever wanted before was to end this whole high school thing. I never realized that the more that I wanted to grow up faster, the less happier I get. I never realized that my high school life was definitely the best experience ever in my school life.. You might wonder why I have brought up such topic.. It’s simply because of the reason that I was busy reading our notebook (my best friend and I’s) crime busting, detective like, spy life. Hahaha. If you were my classmate before and you happen to remember the speaking opportunity that we had when we were in our sophomore year, I cut the notebook in half right, but that was only the bogus one. HAHA. Seriously =)

Anyway, looking back at those moments, I could definitely say that I am indeed one of the luckiest persons in the world before. I mean, I was not really serious then and was taking life for granted but still, I am happily doing childish things and such. But nevertheless, if only one soul was able to look at that notebook or told our teachers, my best friend and I would definitely be out of the school. And, we might not even see each other anymore, but thank God nothing bad happened and I still have the notebook. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I am writing right now because there are a lot of things that changed. My best friend and I separated schools and we just kept on moving forward with our own lives. and I miss those times.. those times that we used to fool around.. And then I realized that we cannot do that anymore, because THINGS have finally CHANGED. :(.

If there’s only one thing that I will never regret. Having done that risky and fun thing with her. :). I wish you all the best bestfriend! I love you and miss youuuuu <3.

Today, I think about friendship..

When I meet someone new, they would always have the first impression that I am friendly. It is indeed true until I stopped believing that all the person who is nice to you is considered your friend. Some were just pretending to be one in order to use you and take advantage of you. But there are some who’s indeed true to you.


If I would be brutally honest, even in my barkada in high school, I could only consider 4 out of 12 people to be my closest buds. That would be my best friend, my two mapuan buddies (HS close friends who also studied in my school) and a Benildian. I need not to name that anymore.. So here I go…

April 18, 2014 might not been one of the highlights of my best friend’s life, but it sure is a memorable day for me.. It was the funeral of my best friend’s mom and I am still glad that I made it even though I was late for about thirty minutes. Thanks to her for telling me that the service was going to be held at 11am. After finding out that it was 10am, I hurriedly took a bath and found the first cab that I saw. 😦 Eventhough I made it at 10:30am, the service was OVER. :|. I was kind of shocked and my face turned out like this :|. I felt that I was kind of a failure because I was late when she needed me the most. (What kind of bff am I? Total failure :|). So when I heard that no one cried, not even her, I kind of felt relieved. At least she’s not crying at the funeral. Anyway… Since it was good friday today, I was supposed to go home after the funeral. But I stayed longer because her cousins and I are busy playing charades. They were really laughing hard. It really felt nice. I dunno. Maybe because I was somehow acknowledge by her family..

Even though I was supposed to go home after that, they even invited me to have lunch with them. I was really shy. Seriously. But still, they treated me as if I was part of their family. Then I realized.. So this is how it feels.. when you’re close with your best friend’s family.. It’s kind of nice.. And I was still abducted and played with them until 4pm and I headed home..

The next friends are my mapuan HS friends. The first one is a girl and the other one is a guy. I’ve been really comfortable with this girl because she’s always there and the three of us hang out more often than not. It’s really nice that way.. Seriously. :P.. And the guy, it’s this feeling that I might have been his twin sister in our past life. That’s what I really feel about him, I’m really comfortable around him and we could basically understand each other even if we’re not talking. It’s just nice. And seriously, whenever there’s a gathering, usually we come together. Hahaha. In short, I am fond of inviting him as well. We could really become stand up comedians. πŸ™‚

The last one is a Benildean. Before, I had some issues with her in the past and I may have said bad things about her but seriously, I have moved forward and let go of all the things that happened. And I am thankful that she understands fully what I feel about our other friend (kabarkada). She could honestly sympathize with me and respects me for my decisions. I am glad that she’s there whenever I badly need someone to talk to and she’s only the person I could explain to when those three doesn’t even get what my point is.

We had this talk yesterday about our other friend whom I am not in good terms (currently). It all started last February 8, 2014. It was her post birthday celebration and being one of her friends, I decided that I should come as well. However, thinking that she could do whatever she wanted (including hurting other people’s feelings), she did something that I never imagined that she would do. Because my guy friend and I were early birds, we arrived earlier than our other friends. So we sat at the table with her, her parents and her parents’ friend. Because she’s kind of a foul mouthed person, she made us look stupid in front of them. She repeatedly stated that we couldn’t pass our mock board exams because were not capable of doing so. To make things even worse, she even bragged about her accomplishments in front of them. It’s as if that she’s slapping in our faces that she is GREAT and WAY BETTER than US. Even though she may have been better in terms of career and success, I could say that I am way better in character than her.I was seriously disgusted about how low she looked on us. Not caring about what others may feel and making her look that she was way better than us.


This picture says it all. I know she would never understand what we felt that time because she had already passed her board examinations and have her own job.. Things were easy for her and not for us. I just do hope that when she experience any failures, she would be able to cope up. If not, that’s pretty bad..

(To be continued since I am already lazy and I would really love to finish this K-drama)

Today, I think about regrets

Hi! It’s me again! For some reasons, I cannot really concentrate with my studies right now so I decided to write in this blog of mine. :). So here it goes…

As the title states, today is the day I talk about regrets. If there’s only one thing I’m certain in this world, that would be.. everyone of us would like to change a part of our past. To correct our mistakes or wrong doings but then again, if we would be given one chance to change our past, what would you change? What decision would you not make?

I have been asking that question myself for a long time right now. If I were still in my frosh year of college, I would never ever choose engineering as my course and ***** as my school. I would instead chase my long life dream to become a lawyer even if it means that I would defy my parents and fight for what I believe in…

However, if I had made that decision before, I am certain that I would enjoy what I am currently doing right now rather than having to study for a half-assed upcoming mock board examinations just for me to graduate. *Sigh*. (This is indeed frustrating).

Even so, there are many things that I would never obtain or possess now if I have chosen that path. I would never make the same mistakes and learn lessons from them. I never would have fallen deeply in love and be badly broken and be changed by that love.. I would never meet someone as good as that ‘person’.

To be truthfully honest, there is this one event in my college life that I have really regret up to now… Back when I was still a froshie, there’s this guy who’s constantly in my mind and he’s constantly hanging around with me. He was really the first person to tell me that I have a huge crush on him. (Seriously, he really suprised me then but what he was claiming is true all along.) He was the guy who looked so confident and full of himself but I never hated him from being like that because deep in my heart, I knew that he’s only like that in front of me.

To be honest, that guy was indeed my first friend and my first crush in my university. He was really funny in his way. He’s always there for me whenever I needed him and I was also there for him. Even though I really liked him back then, it never made it to the point that I would be in a relationship with him because he had a girlfriend that time and just like I said, he’s just my crush.

It’s like the perfect guy, but the wrong time..I could never forget his first impression with me.. “That time, I thought you were the smartest person in the class. And I’m really shocked when *insert name* is better than you.” I was really flattered and until now, that’s what motivates me to study at some point..

I could still remember that he was the guy who would cheer me up and would talk to me when I feel down. I could still remember how I used to help him with his studies. I could clearly remember how we used to tease each other too much and how he tried so hard to make me smile whenever I am sad. His simplicity completely balances my complex mind. Our relationship maybe was the most extraordinary of all.. It’s as if we met even in our past lives. Okay, don’t get me wrong because all I can say is that our friendship was really true.

That guy may not be the brightest in our class, but I believed in him, pushed him, supported him and helped him in his studies. He was really doing so well that time.. Until everything changed because I fell for someone else..

Since we humans are indeed selfish beings, we tend to prioritize our benefits first rather than others’ welfare. Things really changed after that.. I prioritized the other guy and so.. I couldn’t be there for him even if he was still there for me whenever I needed him. And everything went down the drain. He wasn’t able to handle the pressure anymore.. so his mom told him to switch schools..

I was really devastated and sad then because I knew that we wouldn’t be able to see each other in school anymore, we wouldn’t have our usual laugh and teasing jokes against each other.. I remembered how sad he is that time.. and I can still remember what he told me.. “Thanks for everything.. You’re the one that I would never ever forget..” In tagalog, “Salamat sa lahat lahat.. Ikaw yung pinaka-hindi ko makakalimutan sa lahat..”

His words strucked me hard. I really cried upon reading that message and I knew he cried as well. Hahaha. (Okay, I am really a coward for not saying goodbye in his face because we both can’t do it). Seriously.. And then I realized by that time that we were indeed like real siblings.. (Are you somehow hoping this ends into a romantic thing? Well sorry it won’t).

After he left our school I thought that I would not find someone like him. But it turns out wrong because exactly 1 year after he left, I saw his qualities in that certain person. And I know it’s wrong but I am wondering if that new one became the substitute for him..(I’m not telling who he is.)

But true to our words, we never really forgot about each other. Even after all these time, it’s nice that we could still talk ask if we never were separated for about 3 years now. And I’ve heard that his new girlfriend and I had a ton of similarities and he’s really proud when he told me that. (Seriously, I’m gonna punch that guy. So much for admiration)..

If I could turn back time, I would never let him be alone.. But then again, he would never met this girl if he didn’t leave our school so I think.. I still think that even I have regretted that, things went well. And if he was still here with me, I would never meet another good person like him. πŸ™‚

There you have it! :)) Finally cleared my thoughts. πŸ™‚ Off to studying again πŸ˜€




Book Review 2: Parang Kayo Pero Hindi by Noringai

Parang Kayo Pero Hindi Book Cover

Parang Kayo Pero Hindi Book Cover

As of March 11, 2014. I have read my second book out of 50 books that I need to read this 2014. Truth be told, this book certainly caught my attention when I first saw the title. “Parang Kayo Pero Hindi” means it’s as if you’re having mutual relationship with your special someone..but then again, you wouldn’t end up with that person because there are a lot of predicaments that would come along your way. Maybe because you/him doesn’t like any commitment, or maybe he has a girl friend and he wouldn’t break up with her just to be with you.. In reality, this is just plain bullshit πŸ™‚

So as I was saying. I intended to buy this book last February. It was supposed to be a gift for my close female cousin because I was teasing her about the experiences she had when she fell for a jerk. (Don’t be offended, I too, had fallen for a jerk before but I wanted her not to grieve because it was the end of the relationship that wasn’t even real to begin with. Instead, I want to cheer her up by teaching her life lessons based from our experiences..) Upon realizing that the book was out of stock, I opted not to buy it for her anymore.

After a month or so.. I was busy with school stuffs that I haven’t realized that I wanted to buy a copy of this book. So, I went to National Bookstore this late afternoon, March 11, in order to buy the latest book of Marcelo Santos III, Para Sa Broken Hearted Β and surprisingly I saw this book. With swooping excitement, I bought the two books. Even though it’s not really part of my budget, I was compelled to buy them. (I really loved to buy books. It’s my addiction. :P)

Upon opening the book, I was indeed certain that I would finish and devour it right away. The stories inside were very common and could happen in our daily lives but Miss Noreen Capili had a way with those words. Each words were able to pierce my heart with swords. I even cursed for many times because every word that was imprinted seemed to crush every bit of my heart..

It’s like I’ve been slapped hard in my both cheeks. I felt the wringing pain in my heart as if everything that happened flashed back before my eyes. It’s nice if I don’t remember, but then again, I remembered every bit of it. From the first time that we met to the day that I decided to end it all.

In this 100 page book, I have my own favorite mini-stories here. “the one that got away”, “the day after valentines”🌹, “the air in my lungs” and “kung bakit ako umiyak sa commercial ng mcdo”

The One That Got Away 🎼


Everyone of us have that special someone in our life that we could never ever forget. It could be a former lover, a former friend, a former person whom we had a deep connection..But one way or another, fate had a better idea of splitting us apart. I too have my one that got away. And no matter how hard I try to forget the memories that the two of us made, it simply did not fade away..

One of the lines that struck my heart was..

Maybe you’re just missing the person you once were, not the person you fell in love with.”

Based from that quote. I believe that she is definitely right. I missed the person that I once were, before.. when we we’re together, I could still remember my kindness and beaming smile, the different me then.. I missed that me badly, the innocent one who was beaming with hope and happiness. And the one who was always true to her feelings whether she knew that she would end up hurting one day. A lot has changed since then.. It has been 10 months since the day I told him that I wanted to be freed from his rain. And up to this day, I know that even though I am certain that I am not in love with him anymore, he would still be a part of me that wouldn’t fade away so easily.

The Day After Valentines


I’d be a hypocrite if I told you that I do not drink. Everyone does and if they seriously don’t drink, I know that sometime now, they would eventually do it because of their so called problems in their own lives. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a super drunkard asshole or whatever. Usually, I feel drinking whenever I wanted to drown in alcohol rather than think about all of the stupid problems that I encountered. That’s how I usually end up escaping all of those shitty endeavors. And when I experienced my first heartbreak, I drank as well.

I could possibly relate to the girl in this story in the way she hugged and loved the idea of drowning in tequila.. And usually, I end up being honest with everything whenever I am drunk. 😐 The good thing is when I only sleep right away after being drunk.. :).

And my story is not really the day after valentines. It should be two days before valentines. I still remember it clearly. How I smiled to that person who holds a place in my heart. But then again, I never knew what his true intentions where. I wish that he would stop trying to give me false hints because I really don’t want to make the same mistake again..

But who am I to tell him to stop? Just NOBODY. NOBODY again..

The Air in My Lungs


My one that got away was similar to the air in my lungs. I also had the similar story with the author. I was inlove with the wrong guy up to the point that I really did became stupid and did all I could do for that person. Bottom line, he treated me like shit. And then, I gave up. But for now. I am genuinely happy that I did got away from him.

I do agree that there are still resentments lingering in me likeΒ “what if I never met him? I guess that things would be better if I just minded my own business.“. But then again, if not for him, I wouldn’t be the person I am now. I thank him for the heartaches that he gave me because I am a strong willed person now. I wouldn’t be the same if not for him..

So in the future, I would thank the boy whom I met not because we would end up together but because he molded me into what I am now. πŸ™‚

To sum it up, this book would really give you a warm feeling. And you would eventually be able to reflect on your life. Seriously. I would rate it. 4.35 stars out of 5 for giving me satisfaction and hurting me well. Hahaha.

Buy your copies now! :))
