Over a year ago, I had a chance to visit the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati. That was right after I explored The Mind Museum at Taguig. Even though I only stayed here cut-short, I think I captured interesting things enough including this tree. Continue reading

Ahaha .. how pathetic love is!! You know .. they say .. first love never dies!! I believe that .. cos he will always in my heart!! Wheeeeee . aahaha .. alright, Yes, he is my first love.. first romance at all .. tho .. last year I fell for someone, late 2011.. Yes I am.. which helps me to forget what was the feeling of loving my first love!! 🙂 Whoops .. but it never lasted long .. I tend to kill that love before it grows more than loving myself!!! So .. here I am.. free from LOVE .. letting my heart grow more strongly!!

I’m Bored

Am bored and now I’m thinking of you
Nothing in my mind now
But, I can only think and see you!
It’s not that am bored, then,
I just only remember you.
Every second,
Only you bounds in my heart
So, there’s no way for me not to think of you!
What I’m gonna do if its only you,
I can only see you???
Are you the same the way I like you?
I doubt that ….. [sigh]
I know you can’t see me anymore
because
You sees no one now but Her!
How I hope the Her is my name ..
The first time you intentionally look me into my eyes
Was it a trap?
A trap for me to fell for you?
Well, around of a applause for you!
I was.
And until now I can’t escape in your trap!
What was your deceiving eyes done to me?

What was in you that until now,
I’m still holding on!

When 2011 ends, Time to say: Hello 2012

Today its our 365th day! Last day for 2011, first day for 2012 awaits for us. 🙂 I’d say 2011 is a wonderful year, I learn, discover and try new things that I did’t imagine that I can do, Yes I spread my wings and I got enough confidence indeed. Disappointments are always there but mind us that  its always accompanied with fruitful journey in life, not for a lifetime but worth living for. 

To my family who stands together even earthquake got in. This year, family relationship is been tested, (my family and relatives). The most hard dying relationship you could ever lost is family bond. I won’t talk much about it, it hurts a lot. Last 2010 Christmas and New Years Eve celebration was the best ever moments with my relatives, but it won’t be the same this 2011. But despite of those grudges, my family must stay happy!! Life must go on. 🙂

God is always good and wise. He let others walked away from our lives but He gives more than those who go. He always has a good reason in every single detail to our life. I am so blessed because I gain more love through friendship. Thanks for giving such wonderful people to my life Lord. 🙂

I’m trying to make some good history when 2011 ends 😛 😛 (I’m thinking what would it be too..) 😛

 

Happy New Year!!

and

Have A Wonderful Day!!

 

Things, Thoughts and Acts that I didn’t know but now I did

Okay, Here I am again back on my track 🙂

This 2011 my life is really like a roller coaster, ups, downs or even twisting sides. I tell you, I’m not that really innocent cos I think there are things that a 20years old must be aware or knew in some other ways, right?

Things that i didn’t know but now i did:

~ I know now how to buy a bra when referring to sizes, LOL.

Why I didn’t know this before? Simply because my mama and sister bought undies for me 😛 .

How did I know now? I’m with my friend the other time, back October, went mini shopping. We went to undies section and I’m wondering what does it take her too long choosing bra and she was so busy looking to the numbers. Oh geez girl, I am no earth about that, She laughed at me, teasing and said: Goodness, are you sure you didn’t know this? I replied: Ahhh…Now I know 🙂 then we laughed.

~ I know now how to look/read thermometer.

Why I didn’t know this? Simply because when one our member got fever only my papa, mama and my sister look the thermometer. 😛

How did I know now? oh well, I think It’s October or November, my lil bro got fever and my papa delegate the task on me to check how high does the temperature of lil bro. he is 14years old, taller than me :P. So when he handed the thermometer to me, I said: hey twitam how check this? he replied: What? Oh well, lemme check… me lil embarrassed. LOL. Tho, I keep asking him that time how then he teaches me so now I learned. LOL 😛

Thought and Acts I didn’t know but now I know:

~ I want to see more.. more .. more … (how you assess that? LOL)

Why I didn’t know that?

I’m not really fun of chats online.. I don’t have any experience of that tho i have different social networks accounts, facebook, twitter, skype, yahoo, myyearbook but never been have a LONG TIME chat. Until one day back in August, I met someone virtually and I can tell we were used to be so closed, tight as bestfriend i think. It happened I told him, hey I want to see more.. more .. more, LOL .. What I was really meant by that is, I really want to see more PICS, just pics.

Here’s the conversation:

she: hey I want to see more.. more .. more

he: ahw Ok go to skype

she: why?

he: Oh well you said you want to see more

she: I’m trying

You see how naive I am??? O.O

How did I know that?

Just recently, one of my friend virtually again complimented my avi then happened again he said it made him wanted to see more. I said, what? you want to see more face of mine? He said, Ahw, never mind I am embarrassed and due to curiosity I asked why then he said I was thinking naughty thoughts. LOL

Okay, since then I was enlighten what does I want to see more means.

(laughing) 😛 😛

A devastation that I felt

Yesterday was very a long long day.

Two of my friends were affected by that tropical storm Sendong, so we the budidies decided to help even in our own lil way. So after work I was with my friends buying goods for them. As we headed to our first destination, we can all see the tragic view that TSS brought to Cagayan de Oro. We saw houses that was really, ugh, that you can’t really picture out anymore.  I can see survivors trying to strive and save their things and houses, t’was very heart breaking scenario because I can say deep down to my self that I can’t do anything to help them out. 😦 So devastating. Annndd.. for almost an hour of travel, finally we reached at Peri’s house. Hearing her story, what did they experience doubles the pain that i felt 😦 . What good to know is she and her family were okay now. Second destination was at meriam’s place. We reached there when the sun is about to set, so yeah the weather going better now, i guess. Still, since the day it was happened no electricity and no water in the area where it were most affected by the TSS. 😦 We didn’t stay so long there because t’was already 6pm and its so hard to commute.

All day was going so well. I mean, I have a good time at work till when I’m with my peers. What makes me decide to write this post is that, aside from I am so devastated from the tragic we experienced here, I was SO disappointed with the collector of fares in a public conveyance which is we refer as ‘conductor’. As I went home, alright I always commute and Jeepney is all I can got. I’m so tired leaning my head and trying to get some rest. There were two passenger who stop at public market which practically means that there are two vacant seat, right? The conductor looking for two passenger too and it happened that there two ladies who waited for Jeepney. The first one who got in was just bringing her bag, no baggage’s , no hassle. And here’s the point that my tempered reaches its peak, the second one WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO STEP-IN in the Jeepney was blocked by the conductor and says, ‘NO MORE VACANT, SORRY!’ where in fact there was really another vacant for her. That woman he blocked was bringing two heavy baggage’s, the heavier one was in her head and she’s just holding the other one. (Can you see the picture that I’m trying to share to you?) As in, my eyes were opened wide as in shocked in a way that, Oh my God how dare he is, he didn’t even show mercy on her. I mean, how could he do that with the woman who totally obvious that really tired in bringing those heavy baggage’s???? WHY?? If I didn’t control myself, my temper I might even punch his face. 😦 I just can’t understand why people tend to be like that? He could help her right? SO stupid guy. Despite of the tragedy happened to our city he could care much right? I mean, he’s Kagay-anon too he should care and help people in every simple way just like letting that woman in the jeepney 😦

Just saying…

What does he tell, What does he say

Its started with the Impeachment of Chief Justice Corona, and as we ate we talked about the moon because last night the moon was so perfect and papa shared that lunar eclipse happened in our Saturday night and I didn’t have a chance to glance that scenario cos I fell asleep early. LOL  And  then I suddenly open up government issues. Got good conversation with my papa last night 😉  He’s too intelligent and I can’t even rebut and I need to sharpen my reasoning. Oh well, not just last night but every time I talked with my papa, yes I also shared my side but most often I learn more things from him. 

I remembered when I was still in my high school, me, my sister and my papa had a conversation about love, commitment, relationship and etc. My sister was still in her college and my papa give an advice to us, girls, that its better to have no commitment or boy/girl relationship cos it might affect our studies. Tho he also added that, yeah, it might be but  just make sure that you’ll responsible enough to handle things. And you know what did my papa told me? uhmm.. you may find it harsh but I doubt you won’t cos I realized t’was true. He said, its SO rare that is someone out there who will be a man enough to stand for me and be serious in having a relationship with me. (ouch? LOL) You know, I only stand 4’4”, am so petite. IFY, among in my family I’m the most special,not mentally tho physically. Note, I’m not dragging myself down, just telling the truth and reality is this. In that note, what did my papa tell me was just trying to remind me that if someday if I’ll fall in love I’m brave enough to take in that picture, he’s just protecting me cos after all, people are cruel enough and hurt me easily cos I’m weak and not that strong to stop my tears dropping down into my cheeks.

Indeed, me and my papa has also in common denominator you know .. 😛 oh, include my sister please .. LOL

We love action movie. Pretty much 🙂 ♥ tho, I dunno if my sister do but what sure is … me and my papa love James Bond Story (007). Who wouldn’t love that character ??? LOL, What’s the common denominator is, you knew the latest actor today in James Bond movie? Daniel Craig? Oh well, my papa and I don’t him much. He’s lack of charisma, and  we weren’t amazed much in Casino Royale. Whoops?!! Did I hurt Danile’s fans here? Oh, my apology, just sharing my opinion and nothing personal. LOL 😛

But  hey hey hey .. another common denominator, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan was our most favorite James Bond actors 🙂 In my side, they’re not that hunk but dude geez .. they simply flew me away. LOL … especially Pierce Brosnan 🙂 He’s too handsome, hunk(for me), and has great charisma that even today I still got a crush on him. Whew .. 😛 😛 Oh my .. going crazy thinking about him … (evil laugh) 😛 😛

Who’s your bet among James Bond actors? LOL
