I Keep Coming Back

•June 26, 2016 • Leave a Comment


It’s been a loooooong while now but I’m back again. Almost two years since my last post and it feels like I’m a stranger again in the blogosphere.

But, I keep on coming back. Writing – it seems is still my and will always be my first love.❤️

I’m 35 now by the way. Still working in a call center, still single, and although I changed for a bit, but still old same tiny who lives in my own bubble world – for most of the time, that is. Lol. Otherwise, I have to be a different me.

I just got back from Laoag, yesterday to be exact. A week stay in that lovely city gave me a lot of time to think (since there were not a lot of things to do there on a work day) and one of which is how I miss writing.

How much I miss putting into words all the thoughts that goes through my head.

How much I wanted to inked my thoughts somewhere so I can go back and re-read it anytime I want.

How much I want to relive that writer in me that was buried by corporate world.

So, here I am. 

I know it’s going to be a challenge but a challenge I am willing to overcome. I have so many things I wanted to write about and I hope that through this blog, I will learn again how to put into words the chaos that’s on my mind.

Pardon the lapses, the self-centeredness, and the grammar or typo errors. 

Aaahhh. It’s nice to be back!  See you.😘 




One Thousand Thirty-Six Days After…

•October 7, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Hello! It’s been exactly 2 years, 10 months, 1 day since my last blog entry.

I'm backI’m such a douche, I know. I have not even checked-in even for only a few lines in the last two years and I have forgotten this part of me until a month ago.

Well, let’s bury the hatchet shall we and start over again? I’m back and will likely be staying for a while now. There’s so much to tell you and so much to write about — but alas, I’m still in the office and still have a lot of email that I need to reply to.

Sit back though and relax. I promise to tell you a lot of what happened to me in the last two years. 🙂

Welcome back to my world!

Day 92/365: 10 Things I Hate About You

•December 7, 2011 • Leave a Comment

  1. I hate how you always seems to bring out a smile in me when all I wanted is just to sulk and hate the world.
  2. I hate the way you reminded me of Sunday afternoons, walk in the beach, and the thought of happy ever after.
  3. I hate how you always say that everyday is a chance to get better, an opportunity to be happy and that I should seize the moment, otherwise it’s going to leave me in the sidewalks again.
  4. I hate the way you encourage me to speak out my mind because you said that I have bright ideas and that I shouldn’t be scared to make mistakes because it happens to everyone.
  5. I hate the fact that unconsciously, you were the reason why I decided to quit smoking.
  6. I hate you for singing those songs, out of tune, and then I ended up humming it to myself.
  7. I hate how you always seems to know what to say to make me feel better whenever I feel crappy.
  8. I hate you for making me miss you everyday.
  9. I hate you for making me feel bad because I hurt you and for wanting to say sorry.
  10. I hate how I hate you and still want to feel your presence in my life…always.

Day 91/365: A Little Push

If you ever feel in life that all doors are closed, remember these words:

A closed door is not always locked, so give it a push at least.

Looking Forward

It’s been 4 months and yet again, I failed to continue my Project 365 again this year. 

Anyway, now that I got the chance to download the WP application, I’ll have more chance to blog again. No promises this time, but I’ll do my best to write as often as I can.

19 more days to go and it’s Christmas!

24 more days to go and we will be officially saying hello to 2012! 

I’ll be staying here in Manila for Christmas but will be flying home for New Year. As always.

Other things to look forward this month:

1. Peak Weeks aka Toxic Weeks at the fishbowl.
2. Parties!
3. Simbang Gabi. I’m planning to keep the 9 day novena this year. I’ll be praying for a very special gift. 
4. Family reunion on the 30th! Everyone’s excited from my mother side of the clan. Cousins are going home & it’s going to be a blast!
5. New Year. 2011 has been good to me but I think I’m ready to move on to a new year.

So, here’s to a frenzy, busy, expensive, but blessed month!

Oh. By the way, I’m crushing this planner I saw online. I’m trading in my Belle de Jour for this quirky and funky journal for next year. I just realized I’m not that much of a BDJ type of girl after all!


Day 90/365: Here and There…

•July 17, 2011 • Leave a Comment

I’ve missed a total of 106 days in my daily post goal here. That’s a lot! I guess, I over-committed again when I said that I can post every day of this year. I’m not sure now if I can still finish a total of 365 posts this year but I’ll do my best to catch up.

Anyway, I haven’t really got the chance to write a post-birthday entry this year. Now is a good time because I need something to distract me. I need something to take my mind off on something that brought fear in my heart in the last 2 days.

Hello, world. I’m finally 30.

I sometimes cannot believe that I’m over my “twenties” already. It feels surreal. I feel old but I wish I’m young. A dilemma that nothing could cure except acceptance.

Acceptance that we’re getting old and a lot of things are different and some things are gone. If there’s one thing that I’m thankful of about getting old is the fact that I’ve gotten wiser. Yes, I believe that with all the changes that happened in my life for the past years, I’ve learned how to cope and accept the only finite thing in this world — change.

I’ve learned that happiness is a state of mind. I’ve learned that there are only really a few people in this world that you can trust. I’ve learned that your heart is going to get broken no matter how hard you try to protect it. I’ve learned that money is essential but it cannot buy you the things that you needed and wanted most. I’ve learned that in this world, you are nothing but only a speck of the miracle that He created.

The list goes on and on and every day, with every interaction, every knowledge, experience that I gain, I am learning something. It’s up to you how you are going to use these lessons learned and how you are going to make use of it to become a better person.

Nevertheless, for the past 196 days since the year started, it has really been fun. A few bumps here and there but all in all fun. I think I’ve even cried less this year compared to last year (crossing my fingers). I had less disappointments, and less heartache.

I still have 5 months to go before this year is over. Who knows, maybe by January 1, 2012, things are going to be different. All I can do right now is hope, pray and wish that if things are going to change, it would be for the better.

I still live by this mantra:”Count your blessings every day”.

Thank you for continuously sharing my world with me. 🙂
