awww.

Knowing that It is never going to happen, does not stop me from wanting it to, it only makes me want it more.

Sunday, November 27, 2011

let your heart lead you

There are things we dont want to happen but have to accept...things we dont want to know but have to learn and people we cant live without but have to let go.  Its hard to say "NO" when we really want to say "YES".  Its hard to close our eyes when we really want to see.  It does hurt when the one you love doesnt love you, but hurts more when you know that the two of you love each other but your love is not enough to keep the two of you together.  Stay, still, be quiet and listen to your heart. Then when it speaks, get up and go where it takes you.

November, ikaw na. 11.11.11


Yeap. The month that ive been waiting for so long. It was still not the perfect month or even have the perfect feeling but i should be happy and enjoy for whatever i may have. Having my family atleast completed the moment. Its not quite planned very well. What i had in mind was to have the most bonggacious party ever. The best party dress, the most extravagant venue, the most delicious food. Like a fairytale dream. Well, that was just a wild dream haha. I still want it to be simple and solemn so i celebrated at Shakeys with family and friends. It was the most happiest moment in my life and i really thank God for giving me the family that i have now. Btw, we won the IPAD2 Shakeys 11.11.11 promo. Yeah. twas cool and feeling so lucky. Thank you Shakeys. Thank you for making my day super extra special.

Oh, October what took you so long?

Well, this month is such a busy month. Going places here there and everywhere. A lot of nice things happened that made me really busy. Oh it was so tiring but then all was enjoyable. Atleast, i can forget even just for a while those things that are bothering me so much. Hmmm. no further explanation. Bleh!

Holding Hands

Holding hands may seem like an innocent gesture, but they show more than a simple interlocking of fingers. Your hands are one of the most essential parts of your body: you build with them, feed with them, hold with them, touch with them, fight with them; they are the tools of the human body. To take a hold of another’s hand is to break from living individually. It is to link yourself to another being, to momentarily entwine your life with another’s, to promise, for a moment, that you need not face the world alone. More simple, more aesthetically naive than other forms of affection, i.e kissing, hugging, etc.. the act of holding hands is often trivialized in its true implications.

September Breeze

Nothing new. Still having the boring life. Yeah. Thats all i can say for now. haha.

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

lost in change

They say everything changes, but me? i can say, not exactly.  Sometimes certain things just stay the same. Like your favorite color when you were just a kid might still be the same when you reach 60.  The friends that you had when you were a teenager can still be with you till your 80th birthday.  And maybe, just maybe, the love you had lost your entire life will still be the one you ever wanted till the day you die.  Agree? I guess so.

wish

Everyday i always wish for the same thing someone to love who'll love me back.  Today, i think im gonna wish for something else the wisdom and maturity to realize that sometimes it doesnt come in a perfect package, still there will always be something missing and that not all individual has that courage to stand up for you in everything you expected them to be. And the best weapon will always be just acceptance.

same old brand new

Hey! Do you know how to forget old love? You got to find a new love in which you should completely immerse yourself in it.  If that new love is true, then the old love wil naturally become a part of the past.  Its not that you cant fall in love with someone new that youre able to forget the old coz only love can heal a heart that was hurt by love. And if theres no way going back to the old one, let go and start a life and give yourself a chance to find love again.

Untitled

once,
i loved,
i believed,
i trusted,
i failed,
i cried,
i moved on.

then i love again,
i invested,
i exerted,
i hoped,
i fought.

but eventually,
i became weak,
i got tired,
i let go.

Love doesnt always succeed, but it always teach us to let go if we can no longer hold on,  True enough, not everyone has a happy ending, but there's always a new beginning.

August: Go on with the flow

So now, August has come. I thought it would be the end of it all but then i guess its just a start. Okay let me explain further. Saying the end if it all means end of pain in which you are in that situation that you are starting to believe that certain person but then suddenly something happens that made all that belief change and fall apart. Its like you've already absorbed that feeling the certain person is making you feel but then it puts you out in that shocking situation with a pinch in the heart coz you were there and actually believed it but then it was all lies. The feeling goes like you were one step ahead success but it was driven away from you.. awww. So then, as it happens, heres come a new start of pain. well I hope soon all will fall into place. Oh September, make my heart smile.

Echoes of a broken heart

Sometimes we close our eyes & just listen to the echoes of our hearts. We fall in love & there are times when we love so much that we lose ourselves in our emotions. More often than not, we wonder why there are love that grows old & love that grows cold. We would start to search for an answer & try to find out where love has gone wrong. But in the end, we find ourselves where we started, for we cannot question love when it has its own reasons. Love will always be as it always has been… silent, mysterious & deeply profound. Many of us believe that love is forever, that love never dies, only to be disillusioned in the end when we find our hands empty & our hearts longing. We mistakenly have looked at love as a need to be fulfilled. But love is only a gift given to us. We should not hold it in our hands, for we may never find the strength to let it go when it decide to leave. We should only embrace its warmth & glow when it last & freely open our arms when its time to say goodbye.

When we fall in love with someone, we don’t want that feeling to end for it is everything we are, everything that we wanted to be. We pray that love will stay & grow in our hearts. But if it doesn’t, then we should never let ourselves be taken by it, for life should not end where heartaches begin. There is always a reason why we have to move on. We have to say goodbye to the feeling we wanted to stay forever, let us not leave our hands with a heavy heart, for love will have to set its wings free & find the place where it belongs. We may have lost it but then again, we have to close our eyes and listen to the echoes of our hearts, we will hear that feelings resounding silently forever. Then we’ll know that it has never left us, for the good that we have because love will always stay. It will always be there reminding that we should be thankful & happy, not because we have lost love, but because for once in our lives, that feeling lived in our hearts & made us happy.

Favorite lines from Secret Garden

“She drives like a car racer. If she witnesses someone’s purse being snatched, someone she’s never met in her life, she’ll throw fists. She has no money and her body is covered in scars, but she doesn’t want to spend even one second of one minute with people like us. She’s that kind of woman. I’ve never seen a woman as cool as her. That… is my answer.” – Joo Won


“There are things that are thought of as fantasies merely because they’re far away. Starry bodies are like that. Just as it is with people who are too beautiful, they readily disappear – In the books that I’d read to find out what he’s really like, this was a passage that had long settled in my heart. It’s now that I realize it, how beautiful a person he is. And therefore, how far away he is from me. He’ll disappear someday, too, like people do when they’re too beautiful.” – Ra-Im

“Where on earth is a woman who’ll jump at the chance to happily and beautifully cultivate a love that’ll just turn to bubbles? Nowhere in the world is there a woman who will start a love, giving up the ending. That’s why we’ll never work. We have no answer.” – Ra-Im

“The thing about women is, the most common of women can become a queen, and the most rarefied woman can become a maid – according to how she is treated by the person she loves.” – Seul

“Do you like decorating trees? I hate it – I hate making a ruckus on anyone’s birthday but my own. But… I thought that you would like it. You only like things that I hate.” – Joo Won

“Since what age did you become so pretty?” – Joo Won

“I’m thinking of doing everything now, including this stupid act of waiting for someone in front of their house so you should do the same. You have no thoughts of becoming the little mermaid, so that’s why I’ll be come the little mermaid instead. I’ll be right next to you as if I am not there and disappear like foam. So right now, I am the one shamelessly hanging on to you.” – Joo Won

“Are you that weak? Even if the distance seems far, run after him. Even if it feels like he isn’t next to you, grab on to him.” – Seul

“All around the world there are 230 countries, and among those people I can speak 5 languages. Nevertheless, I can’t find the exact word to define our relationship.” – Joo Won

“Open your eyes. You did something strange and stole my heart, you made me drink something strange and stole my body, showed up at someone else’s party and stole even my lips. If it wasn’t for that, there is no reason for you to look so pretty in my eyes.” – Joo Won

“From now on, no matter what you do I’ll still like it, no matter what you do I’ll still forgive you, for the sole reason that you’re alive.” – Ra Im

“There are only two types of girls: the type that you marry and the type that you play around with and then break up with. But you’re somewhere in between.” – Joo Won

“It’s not because I love you, but because I only love you. If I don’t have you, then I won’t have any other choices.” – Joo Won

“Being unable to eat and sleep is the basic thing. Waking up in the middle of the night will become a daily routine. Because the one you love has turned into someone else, you also can’t whine to each other for the fear of being scolded by that person. So, you cry by yourself. But what hurts the most is that person doesn’t actually miss me like the way I do. It’s like that person has forgotten about me and is simply being happy alone. All you want to do is die, but you can’t die either… because you’re scared that you won’t see that person again.” – Seul

“Alice in Wonderland Syndrome. This is a mental illness. It is like looking through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. It is as if you are living in a fantasy world of a fable. This is an interesting and sad syndrome. I’m sure that I have that syndrome. If it’s not it, then why the heck does my every moment with the ordinary girl feel like a fable?” – Joo Won

”If some man tells you that he’s fallen in love with you at first sight, just punch him. It’s just another way of saying that he wants to go to bed with you.” – Joo Won

“Don’t fall in love with another guy. For the rest of your life, live alone and think of me. This is perhaps the most selfish decision I’ve made in my life.” – Joo Won

“You just hang up the phone whenever you feel like it. When I come to find you, you get angry. When I try to buy you food, you get even angrier. Even worse than that, you hit me. You’re a completely strange woman… but that’s exactly the problem. You’re so strange that I find you, puzzling and amazing.” – Joo Won

“You’re really pretty when you’re mad.” – Joo Won

“Do you need more miracles? There was already a miracle. A woman with no decent family background, no money, no good looks, is someone very special to someone who has everything. Isn’t that a miracle? Be honest. When I was clinging on to you, I know you said “go away, disappear”, but inside you were going KYA!!! Right?” – Joo Won

“We still don’t have a single wedding photo. But we live every day, loving and being loved, living a magical life. Maybe being in love is a lot like swapping souls. May your soul have flowers that bloom, a cool breeze, a shining sun, and… once in a while, a magical rain that falls.” – Ra Im

“I hope you’ll see the things I see. You’ll stand at the window where I stand, and lie down in the bed where I lie down, and read the books I read. If we could be together, even in that way… then that’s enough. Let’s think of it as being together. That’s enough for us to consider ourselves as happy as other lovers.” – Joo Won

Gil Ra Im will always be stuck between two different worlds, when I’m done with you, you’ll disappear like foam on the sea.” – Joo Won

Hingang malalim umiihip ang hangin ngumingiti ang araw mga punong sumasayaw OWEN OWEN wag kang magpapahuli sa babaeng nanggugulpi -Joo Won

The Last Memory

The last memory could be the happiest or may be the saddest.. To believe even the most unbelievable lines, to trust and love wholeheartedly is the most unselfish but risky thing to do. It comes packed when youre in it, it doesnt have procedures..it just happens and you feel it like the wind, existing yet unseen. To be strong for someone whose weak even when the truth is youre dying inside but you stil continue to stand for that person because its the only hope you can see. But what if that certain person suddenly leaves you? How would you feel? Its as if youre stabbed by a knife when youre looking ahead for the promised future. And now, whats the point in being strong when you can freely admit that YOURE WEAK and it weakens you more to know that theres no other reason to be strong anymore.

Let life be your judge and it will take you when its time.

JULY says...

So..what's up with July? Hmm just pretty normal in a weird way. Like things you expected to be yours will all be gone, like hoping for nothing, something like you wont have a choice but to accept all that happened and all that's been happening. Its life and sometimes it doesnt go the way we want it to be. 


Right decisions are those ones harder to make especially if it involves someone who is dearly connected to you of course you dont want to regret and get wronged by impulsive decisions but as they say when you decide for something big but you never regret or even feel a heavy weight in your chest, then its really the right decision.


So how many of you, feel that way? 

If you do, then its the right path youre up to. But if not, get ready to regret it soon.

Can love really last for a lifetime?

Answer: scientists have found out that romantic love involves chemical changes in the brain that last for 12 – 18 months only. After that, the pair is on their own … but love can absolutely last for a lifetime as desired to be maintained … meaning, it’s a mutual choice.

Bottom line: it will last if you know how to commit.

Back to normal in JUNE

Happy days are over..things are all getting back to normal. Its like having a fairytale dream and when you wake up, suddenly it all stops. Sometimes adjustments are the hardest part especially when youre totally enjoying the moment its like you just want to hold it just that way forever. But yeah, even fairytales is not filled with happiness all the time. There comes that certain moment that you need to act and do what needs to be done and wait for the ride that will take you back to happiness again.

MAY, i go out?

 May..It was a happy month though. Ive spend my summer with such a very hectic schedule. Swimming at Amana Waterpark at Bulacan, Fun day at Funranch Pasig and Enchanted Kingdom, Mall tour and shopping almost everyday, coming home late..its was very tiring but i enjoyed it a lot. Hmm the highlight was when we tour around Cebu and Bohol, it was really a total adventure and from then on i love to visit new places no matter how near or far as long as i have the budget, why not? I actually bought a new bag for touring someday or hopefully soon. I need to be productive..yeah. hahaha. I saw a backpack somewhere and i love it sooooo much!!! i got to have it badly.

Ang Tsinelas ng Buhay Mo

Ang taong para talaga sa'yo (yung right one ika nga) ay para daw TSINELAS.
Di naman sinasabing mukhang goma o balat ang hanapin mo. Ganito kasi yan..

Maraming uri ng sapatos ang nagkalat sa paligid - may school shoes, rubber shoes, boots, stilettos,sandals at kung anu-ano pa. Iba't ibang style, iba-ibang dekorasyon.

At syempre, iba-iba din ang presyo. May mura, may mahal. Ikaw, pag umalis ka ng bahay, 
di ba isinusuot mo yung KAHIT ANONG MAGANDA AT MAMAHALIN
Yun ang isinusuot mo dahil yun ang gusto mong ipambalandra at ipakita sa iba buong araw. pero at the end of the day, kapag pagod ka na sa maghapong trabaho/ eskwela/ lakwatsa/ habang nasa biyahe ka na pauwi ng bahay, ano ba'ng tatlong bagay ang ini-imagine mong gawin?

1.) Magpahinga
2.) Kumain ng hapunan at
3.) Magbihis ng damit-pambahay at magsuot ng tsinelas.

Tama, TSINELAS! Sa buhay mo, marami kang makikilalang babae at lalake. maganda, gwapo, sexy, mayaman, malakas ang dating, hanep ang porma, lahat na. Pero sa bandang huli, pareho nating alam na HINDI UN ANG PINAKAIMPORTANTENG INGREDIENT SA PAGMAMAHAL. Kumportable ka ba sa taong 'to? Does he/she make you feel good about yourself?

Tinatanggap ka ba niya kahit "PAMBAHAY" na lang ang hitsura mo? Siya ba ang tipo ng taong
alam mong makikinig kapag nire-report at ikinukwento mo na ang mga nangyari sa'yo buong
araw?

Think about it.

Ang puso, tumitibok yan sa mga di inaasahang pagkakataon. And sometimes you wonder about it, and most of the time, you even deny it. But deep down, you just know, and feel, that it's right and it's the right one.

Beauty Tip # 28: Hot Oil Treatment

Massage your scalp with olive oil using your fingertips.  Remain for half an hour and wash hair well.  This natural remedy is an excellent conditioning treatment.  Do this once a week for healthy hair.  It also controls frizz.

Beauty Tip # 28: Treat Brittle Nails

When nails easily crack or break they can be a permanent worry.  Weak nails are caused by general ill health or a protein deficiency in the diet.  Increase your nutritional intake by eating more lean, meat, fish, fresh fruit and vegetables.  Others say you rub garlic into your fingertips or put some vinegar to make the nails strong but im not so sure of that.

We arrived Tagbilaran approximately 3:00pm.. Dauis Church is just a few blocks away from our place, we went back to Tagbilaran to eat and buy some other stuffs.

After the tour, we return to the hotel and pick up our luggages.  We are rushing coz we're late in our flight.  Added luggage for pasalubongs, its really heavy. When we reach to the airport later did we know that the plane was delayed. (Well, kaya nga PAL, palaging late hehe.) It was a relief but since im very tired its annoying to wait that long.  Oh well, i slept in the plane and i guess i left my mouth open (hahaha! that happens when im exhausted) We arrived Manila around 11:00pm, There comes another waiting.  Wala pang sundo. See how upset i am.  I throw myself in the sidewalk of the airport. x_x

Anyway, the trip was so enjoyable for me especially im with my family.  
Happy much. ^_^

APRIL fools me

Oh so well, here comes April. A lot of bittersweet moments that happened way back and yea im still here standing still from a place called unknown. I really dont know if im going backwards or moving forward, can you tell? So many times i thought i am okay but most of the time it feels im not. I dont know but its all messed up.  So many things i fear so much that the only thing i can do is run away or pretend that everything will be okay...soon. Hands trembling, tummy's cramping whats more worse than having that nervous feeling over something you want but too scared enough to try again? Whats done is done, whats felt will always stay and so does the memories. Well, every month and everyday i still hold on meeting luck and success along the way. Im not that addicted to horoscopes but the prediction this year says that its my lucky year and so i need to believe, i have to. I always wished life could be sweeter to me next time.

"Sometimes in life there are bonds that are formed that can never really be broken..no matter what."

MARCH me to success

February was a tough month..but i guess March is a tougher one. I had a lot of plans to do that is all rumbled in my mind, which one to start with first. Hmmm, it does include business and travel plans, yeah. I do love to have maybe a shop or a restaurant i can manage but before getting to the main idea i need to consider the little details like the location, the supplies, etc. And oh well, i love to travel, go places here, there and everywhere so i really need to be more productive so i can enjoy life the way i wanted to..haha pretty hard yeah..believe me.

I do hope sweet success will be there waiting for me at the end after all the hardships and the pain ive been through...

So thats Baguio!

Since after i graduated i wanted to go to Baguio but due to some reasons it was always postponed. This 2011, is a different year coz this year i want my plans to get done. Atleast someone told me that if i wanted something i must pursue to have it. That i must believe and make it happen. So i did.

BAGUIO! HERE I COME...
I was so excited, It was my first trip to Baguio. i was filled with unexplained happiness. After that bumpy roads ive been through, after the efforts unappreciated, after being left behind i find my heart at peace even just for a while. Too much drama haha.

Anyway, the moment i arrived Baguio, i can barely walk, shivering from cold its like i stepped into a freezer hahaha. We waited about 20mins for my best friend to contact her cousin, their place is on top of the hill and its so damn cold there.  I was amused at the driver how he managed to drive into the up and down road curves. The view was fantastic. If i had wings, i would dive and fly hahaha, funny thought.

On our first day we watched the street parade, stroll at the Burnham Park, bought bonnets for the three of us. We ate kwek-kwek on stick and kalamay. The cold weather is really nice, i so love it. The sun was up but the wind is still cold. We went boating at Burnham. (100pesos for 30 mins/150pesos for 30 mins with rower) We choose the one with rower coz we dont know how to row the boat but we tried how just for experience, it was hard! 



Places we visited
  • Baguio Cathedral
  • Session Road
  • Public Market
  • Lourdes Grotto
  • Jollibee Baguio
  • SM Baguio

    The next day we wake up early to watch the Grand Float Parade. We were on the streets at 5am and patiently waited. The parade started at pass 8am and ended 10:30am. I so love the DUNKIN DONUTS FLOAT. The flowers are detailed and looks really fabulous. We saw Sam MIlby, Enchong Dee, Empoy and other Kapuso and Kapamilya stars which i do not recognize hahaha. There are 16 floats that joined the parade. Before the 2 floats arrive, there was quite a commotion coz the people thought the parade was finished so they started going down away from the side of the streets. The crowd control assigned to theit positions rushed to that area and it looked as though we were in Malacanang and the people are rallying hehehe.

    The crowd was huge.


     

      


     Places we visited:

    • Minesview
    • Wright Park
    • Good Shepherd
    • Botanical Garden
    • Pilak
    • The Mansion
    • pass thru Teacher's Camp

    Ingredients:

    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    3-4 drops of rose water

    Combine the ingredients.  Widely spread the mixture on the face and affected areas.  Let it settle for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with pure water.  If you have dry skin, then this is not the right one for you.

    Lemon has got Vitamin C, a necessary component for keeping skin healthy. Again, not for dry skin.

    EDSA @ 25

    Left early around 5:30am to go to my bestfriend's house at Batasan Hills then got home 8:30am. Me and my bestfriend is rushing coz i need to be at home before 9am because my nephew will go to school. Regardless of the info that it is EDSA Day which means no classes at all levels, we were rushing to go to my nephew's school, later did we realize when my mom called, she said: "wala nga palang pasok ngayon" Haha. But we were near the school so we just pass by the school and yea it was closed. Next plan was going to SM Marikina to buy a cake and smartbro plug-in kit. We're supposed to wait for my mom at the school's gate but then we agreed to go and wait for my mom at SM Taytay instead of Marikina. We were early around 9:40am so we wait at the parking until the mall opens. Then my mom i guess she was in a total rush she stil go to SM Marikinia instead of Taytay..whoa! another 30 mins to wait. We actually need to go home early because its my sister's birthday and we need to do some preparations. 


    So there, my mom arrived at SM Taytay around 12noon. We were in the supermarket when the staff announced that they are having technical problems with credit card transactions, duh  we need to wait. My mom go to the nearest BDO ATM, i got in the line for her and just called my mom when our turn is near. My mom withdrawed 10k and guess what, IT WAS DEBITED. GOSH! wattaday! We called a BDO Representative and reported it luckily, the supermarket's credit card transactions went okay already, saved by the bell! haha. Then here comes SMART, uber duper bagal ng service. It took 1 hour per person how was that?!! We inquired earlier and just got back to buy the plug-in kit and we waited almost 2 hours, i was so impatient and never cared at all blaming Smart's very slow service.


    We got home at 2pm and still rushing, we cooked pansit and chicken. My mom cooked sinukmani earlier before she left the house. We ate around 3:30pm and still rushing coz me and my bestfriends are going to Baguio in the evening.


    Instead of EDSA REVOLUTION, Id rather call this day, SM REVOLUTION. Its very memorable, really.

    FEBRUARY, let me carry out the pain

    February! You know that January has been unfair to me, it put me into situations thats really kinda heartbreaking..but i was a little impressed coz i manage to stand still and be strong..so its another month. Actually, February you've been kinda unfair to me too..or i must say its a lil bit continuation..well i dont blame you..in fact i learned to accept things as they are. That sometimes even how much you give, you'll never get anything in return most of the times you'll be just taken for granted. Life has a lot of twist and turns, its on how you make to twist when life turns you or how you turn when youre bein' twisted. Life is good, its the situation and people that make it bad. Its like when you love someone so much but that someone doesn't love you then accept it that way. Coz if you force them to love you, it wont be love after all. Or lets say someone you love, loves someone else, then just let him/her to be happy no matter how painful it is. Sooner or later they'll gonna realize the worth of the ones they had chosen to let go. Always remember that you can never find a perfect partner to love you the way you wanted. Only a person who is willing to love you more that what you are, someone who’ll accept you from what you can and be. That’s even better that perfect. 

    I cant actually say im happy, sadness haunts me every now and then but at least slowly im trying to get my old life back with improvements of course haha. I had some design projects this month, it keeps me busy a lot and i know i need to be more productive. More to come please.

    I am perfectly imperfect, beautiful in my flaws, sure of my insecurities, absolute chaos..a beautiful disaster.

    Single Awareness Day!

    To all my family and friends who are committed-Happy Valentine's Day. And to those who are single-Happy Independence Day. To those who have broken up-Happy Republic Day!

     Well, Valentines Day is just an ordinary day..though i want it to be special but as they say, it only comes once a year so make the most of it with your significant other. Weh! but was if there was none? preoccupied with something or worse "with someone else" hahaha! So does it mean singles dont have the right to celebrate? 


    I went to a mall with my mom..(yea take note of that haha!) Actually, i just accompanied her since i dont have a date (awww haha, but thats okay) And it as pretty weird, i see flowers, cakes, teddybears and chocolates everywhere!!! Ahh, was i so envious of the bouquets haha. Well im not really after the gifts but a simple thought is enough to make my heart smile. 

    Oh, along the way i had a minor road accident because the driver stepped on the brake that made us passengers move to the driver's direction..i hurt my left arm again, it would had been better already. Well a minor pain in my arm is more bearable than emotional pain caused by people who dont know how to value your worth.

    so that's it. Its SAD! (SINGLE AWARENESS DAY)

    Beauty Tip # 22: Eyeliner is safe

    If you are approached by anyone claiming that eyeliners are harmful for eyes and that they can cause serious damage to eyes and eyesight, it is purely baseless.  There have been numerous search that have been carried out on this particular topic; (as i have read before) however, there has never been an evidence to prove that eyeliners are harmful to the eyes.  Therefore, everyone can continue to enjoy the pleasure of applying eyeliner in order to intensify your beauty and looks.  Eyeliner is perhaps one of the most attracting contraption of vanity.

    I am not so into makeup thingy, i only wear makeups during special occasions, but for day makeups, i prefer to just wear a light powder and blush and yeah sometimes, eyeliners, i love 'em!


    I use Maybelline's Gel Eyeliner.  Its more easier to apply and it dries fast. It doesnt smudge and its waterproof.

    So ladies, you just have to choose the brand of makeups you will use so you wont have any problems, skin irritations, etc. Eyeliners wont harm your eyes as long as you are extra careful in applying it and dont forget to wash it away before you sleep.

    For waterproof eye makeup, it may be a lil bit hard to remove with soap and water, L'oreal Eye Make up remover is perfect. You can use cotton buds or a soft cloth for this so it wont be that messy.

    Beauty Tip # 21: Hair care

    Your hair gets used to a certain brand.  Since your hair isnt living even if its healthy it cant become accustomed for a certain brand of shampoo.  So you dont need to change your brand of shampoo regularly to keep your hair healthy.  Once you got it, stick to it as long as it doesn't gives you hair problems. (hairfall, dandruff itchiness etc)

    Mapanlinlang na Katotohanan

    Aking napagtanto, hindi lahat ng tao may lakas ng loob magpakatotoo sa ibang tao lalong lalo na sa kanilang mga sarili. Kung ating iisipin, mali ito. Maling hindi mo ipaalam sa madla kung ano ang totoo. Ang bawat nilalang binigyan ng pagkakataong mamuhay sa katotohanan ngunit karamihan sa atin ay nagkukubli sa pagkukunwari at kasinungalingan. Mga simpleng bagay na maaari namang ilahad upang mas lubos na maunawaan, kung bakit lubhang napakahirap gawin. Marahil ay ito ay dala ng takot, pagsaalang-alang para sa ibang tao o pagiging makasarili. Nakakalungkot dahil batid kong lahat ng tao ay nagnanais na makamit ang katotohanan sa lahat ng pagkakataon. Kung aking ihahambing sa mga inosenteng presong napagbintangan lamang, kailan at paano nila makakamit ang katarungan kung ang katotohanan ay sadyang mailap upang makamtan nila; sa mga magkaibigang matatakbuhan mo, ngunit paano ka nila matutulungan at maiintindihan kung hindi ka magsasabi ng totoo; sa mga mag-asawa at magkasintahang hindi nagiging tapat sa isa't isa papaano nila mararamdaman ang wagas na pagmamahal kung ang isip nila ay punong puno ng pagdududa....

    PAANO? Totoo ngang ang mundo ay balot ng mapanlinlang na katotohanan, madalas kung minsan mahirap ng paniwalaan ang mga bagay bagay lalo't higit hindi naipadarama. Masaklap pa nito'y totoo man ito'y itinatanggi na ng buong pagkatao mong paniwalaan dahil minsan ka ng nalinlang ng mabubulaklak na pananalita o di kaya'y pinaniwala ka lamang sa mga bagay na hindi naman totoo. Kung gaano kahirap makuha ang tiwala ng isang tao, sa pagkakataong masira ito ni kailan man hindi na maibabalik pa sa dati kahit ano pang hirap ang danasin ng taong nagkasala.


    Tunay ngang ang totoong pagmamahal ay para lamang sa mga taong matatapang susuungin ang lahat ng hirap at sakit maiparamdam lamang sa taong kanilang minamahal na ang pagmamahal nila ay puno ng katotohanan na nagmumula sa kaibuturan ng kanilang puso.


    awwww. sadyang mahirap hugutin ang mga katagalugang ito kaya aking tatapusin na ang aking sanaysay..sana'y naibigan ninyo ang aking nais iparating sa madla, wala akong pinapatamaan ngunit kung kayo ay natamaan, yaon ay hindi ko na kasalanan, . ^_^

    Ang Banat...bow!

    Banat ng Pusa sa Daga:

    "Kahit kailan HInding hindi ako mapapagod habulin at hanap-hanapin ka
    At pinapangako ko pag nahuli kita hindi na kita pakakawalan pa
    Hindi ko pababayaang angkinin ka ng iba..
    Akin ka lang."

    Banat ng Daga sa Pusa:

    "pakipot man akong maituturing..Pahard to get ang acting..
     Pag ako nakita mo't nahuli Pangako ko sayong hindi ka magsisisi
    dahil para sa sarili mong kaligayahan..
    Handa akong masaktan, sumaya ka lang."

    1.11.11

    It was nearly evening since i realized that it was 1/11/11 well this day should be really special in any way. Well, my day wasnt that good. I feel so lazy waking up and so hesitant of what this day would bring. I remember there was this situation that made me feel so uncomfortable, i felt bad and it makes me think a lot. But i dont know, what surprise me a lot is even when i dont know anything at all, i still can trust, i mean 100% given. Weird.  All im hoping is that everything will be better in time. Everyone will be happy, everything will be okay.


    This inspires me. Especially #2. Haha!

    Feast of the Black Nazarene




     Left the house around 10:00am, arrived Quiapo around 11:00am.. Huge crowd, as expected. The bad thing is that they keep on pushing those people in front them(Yeah i was pushed..aww it hurts.) and smelly sweats is more than expected. hahaha. The good thing about that pushing is we reached the church by just going with the flow of the people..we didnt walked that much..actually you dont have to hehehehe its goes through different directions but in the end we made it through inside the church...Btw, we bought Nazarene handkerchiefs..and upon walking near the church there was a vendor selling Nazarene items, and i think no one is buying from her yet..she shouted at the people: "Minsan lang to sa isang taon ayaw niyo pang bumili!!!" I cant help but laugh a little. Yeah, it was true its happens once in a year so atleast make the most of that moment..right? But shouting like that i thinks its quite not right. awwww. 
     The altar was very beautiful..The priest was so surprised on how the people in Quiapo celebrate the feast of the Black Nazarene. (the priest was from another place, dunno where) I mean i guess he was specifically talking about the "crowd" It was really a great miracle that different kinds of people from other places are united together in this very holy occasion. All i can say is WOW. That moment was overwhelming..and i wont miss it again next year,

    God Bless Us All!


    After that, i went to SM to meet someone, starbucks mode, had coffee of course. chitchats and then go home. Well..ughhh i dont know. End of story, haha.

    IM HIRED!

    I was feeling bored and I came across this job ads and it caught my attention..I contacted the person and luckily she answered me back inviting me for an exam and initial interview..It was my first job interview for 2011..yeah i was nervous of course. I came early as 8:30am..oh btw, it was somewhere in Ortigas. That was my visitor pass on the left and being number 02 i was early weeee. 
    The exam went well as well as with the initial and final interview. It was a one-day processing so at least its a time saver for all the job applicants. After the initial interview, i was hesitant  of whats gonna happen on the final interview..well, unexpectedly, i got hired. They asked me to go back the next day for the orientation. Theres just this one big problem. Because i wasn't hired for the position im applying for. I realized then that it was some sort of a networking or better yet an Insurance company or something.  One more thing is they are asking the hired applicants to pay for a fee..whoa, one applicant told me: "hindi ba dapat they wont let us pay anything bukod sa medical and requirements, bakit sila naniningil?" I said: "yeah, ganun nga. so ppunta ka ba sa orientation tomorrow?" She answered back: "Hindi siguro. hahaha." As soon as i get home, i checked the company's background and we were right it was an insurance company. I decided not to attend the orientation for reasons that i wasnt hired for the position i am applying for and that i read some complains about that said company. I was hired and i didnt accept the job but i wasnt disappointed at all. That was something  i can call: "charge to experience"

    It was fun though. There was this girl who was being called for interview but it seem she doesnt know her name hehehe, i think she was thinking of something or was nervous. The secretary said: "Kanina pa kita tinatawag anjan ka lang pala." There was also this guy in the examination room who doesnt have a ballpen he needs to wait for the other applicants to finish so he can borrow..aww haha. (I want to be kind but i only have one ballpen)


    Looking back, years ago at my very first interviews, i was a happy-go-lucky girl that is not sure serious in applying hahaha. Heres what happened as what i can remember: It was somewhere in Makati naman, I ride a taxi since i didnt know the place, i was so late that time and never got the chance to go to the restroom..well i look okay naman but it was always part of a girl's routine right? So there, i was in the examination room and i realized i dont have a ballpen, i wasnt prepared i admit haha. What i did was i borrowed a pen to the one in charge. I was so ashamed awww. Well the exams went well. Then there goes the interview, in the middle of the conversation, my phone rang. aww! i forgot to switch it to silent mode hahaha. i was totally embarassed and laughing at myself, i was a total pasaway, i know. I wasnt hired, asa pa ko haha. But i was referred naman to La Salle Antipolo but i didnt go through it. weeee.


    One more memorable experience i had is when i was still a student, i applied for a part-time job at Toy Kingdom, actually my friend just invited me..trip lang, i wasnt even in formal attire, just that usual jeans and shirt i use to wear haha. There was no exam, just interview. When it was my turn, the interviewer was kind, she asked me everything about the resume and some personal questions. I think i made the interviewer cry when i told her about my life background (that my dad left us etc etc) I didnt make "paawa effect" i just told her what she asked me to. I can see the interviewer teary-eyed. OMG! what did i do? haha natatawa ako na naconfused. Hehe She interviewed me for more than 30 minutes. She hired me and ask me to complete the requirements. I didnt. I realized i didnt want the color of the uniform. hahahaha. Im so bad. weeee. I regret it a bit. sayang din kasi un effort ko but then okay lang din since i was busy din with school that time. I never expected din nmn that i will be hired,. hahaha.


    So thats all. I had my target job now and im praying and wishing hard to get it. Wish me lots of luck!

    JANUARY, why are you so unfair to me?

    arghh..January i wanted to hate you this week is full of unexpected happenings but i was surprise enough that i accepted and understand it all..so i decided to love you anyway. ^_^ Though i admit it was hard, it was confusing and very painful. Life's like that, its either you drown yourself in depression or pull yourself up to go on and succeed..(i choose to pull myself up of course)  I dont want to be sad even when all i really want to do is cry, cry and cry. Tears will make me feel better but it wont bring me luck, it wont make my dreams come true..so for now, and for the months to come crying is just my least priority. Someone told me once that if i wanted something i must believe that it will happen and of course i should make an effort to let it happen.. it motivated me much but then im still stucked coz i dont know when, where, how to start. Awww.


    January, you're not that good to me, i hope when February comes, it will be a little more kinder so that my heart can smile again. weeeee.

    2011: Take a leap to the unknown

    I've been looking forward to this year..New life, a better me.

    Looking back, 2010 has been a hard year for me and my family. I do have happy memories here like the time i fly away to Cayman Islands,, i think thats the most unforgettable happiest moment i had, Thus, this was also a very sad year, my lola and uncle has been taken away from us just months in between. Up to this time, it was still unbelievable, i mean i accept reality  but it just never sinked in my mind that they are gone, that we cant be all together again..just like we were before. the old times where at least we can be called a family.


    Well, i know life must go on. And this year, i can feel that im learning to accept and understand things as they are. God made me realize things cant be if its not meant to be and i can feel His love is changing me into a more better person. Im not that religious, i dont go to church as always, i dont pray that much, the only thing i had is that faith i know that God knows better whats best for me than i do so for this year with all my efforts, im leaving it all to God. I dont know really have a clue but i trust Him.


    Talking about horoscope, its says that im a bit lucky this year especially that my birthday falls on 11-11-11. Yeah! im so looking forward to that day. Im thinking about having a debut party-like but its still to be planned. yey! Even when how many problems i had encountered from January 1 up to now, im still not giving up that i know i will be lucky, theres something out there that i know will make me endlessly happy..that it will be sadly never after.
