About me


December 18, 2009

A year ago, the grand mother, the 1st daughter and the 1st grand daughter went to Singapore and spent their summer vacation there.

Basically, to bond. All three didn’t know each other.
What was one like to live with the other in one roof?
In a place only the three knows each other.
They lived there for more than 100 days.

Think 100 days is not enough to know one?
Think 100 days won’t unclothe the layers of the heart?
Think it wouldn’t burn an everlasting love?

Think twice…. It would.
Think again.
It will go beyond.

It’s cold.
I gazed at the trees nearby
Only to find out that none was moving.

Could it be you?
I know I was at fault.

But don’t ever think that I was too busy to remember you.

“Siguro nagtatampo ka na naman sakin! Pero di ba sinabi ko naman sayo na simula nung umalis ka na… nahihirapan na kong umuwi ulit sa Bulacan? Nasasaktan ako… ayokong makita yung bahay na walang tao… na wala ka.”

I’m sorry.
But is it you?

Is it your arms embracing me?
Is it you telling me to slow down?
Are you telling me to go back to school?
Are you asking me to return the lit books I borrowed from you?

Is it you?

Almostly believing it’s really you…
A bunch of kids started to sing their carols.
Realizing the coldness come from December air.

love, now and always,


Secrets to a Happy Life...

December 14, 2009
* Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

* Live with the 3 E's: Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy.

* Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and those under the age of 6.

* Dream more while you are awake.

* Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and
eat less foods that are manufactured in plants.

* Try to make at least 3 people smile each day.

* Clear clutter from your house, car and desk... and let new energy flow into your life.

* Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, issues of the past, negative thoughts, or things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the present positive moment.

* Life isn't fair, but it's still good and wonderful.

* Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

* You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

* Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

* Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

* Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, and wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

* No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

* Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this matter?"

* What other people think of you is none of your business.

* Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

* However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

* Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

* Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful, or joyful.

* Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

* No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up. Make a good appearance.

* Do the right thing.

* Call your mother and father often.

* Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

* Enjoy the ride. It's been worthwhile.. (no regrets!)

and lastly, my favorite:

* The best is yet to come.

The Ear Story

December 04, 2009

My late great grand mother has a hearing impairment. I’m not sure which ear was impaired. But I’m sure that to be able to hear us she depends on a hearing aid, brown, small. When I was a kid, I thought it was a gadget. Thought it was some cool thing. But as I grow up, I discovered that it isn’t….
Inang, that’s how I call her, needs it way more that she needs forks and spoons in eating. There were times that when someone speaks too much… it echoes so loud like an alarm, like a siren. And that sounds pains the ear of Inang. I know.
I witnessed how she felt during those moments. I don’t want to experience that.
To escape myself from having the same fate, what I do is take care of my ears… Cover it when a thing bangs, tone down volumes… less the decibels, more to ears life.
But today I want to take a break from hearing. As I turn the highest level, these phones can have, a reason goes behind it.
I’m tired. I’m so so tired.
I don’t want to hear your voice. I don’t want to hear you screaming. Think that when moments of silence like these come I just wanted to hear another thing. Perhaps, I wanted to hear your heart. Realize that now what I want to hear is what it truly beat, what it truly feels and not the lies that it shouts...

love, now and always,


La la love!

Facts about L.O.V.E :)) <3 (from someone else's blog)

1. A man won't let go if he really loves you.

Do not hold on to someone who has let go of you. He does not love you and does not value having you. Believe me, he will not let go if he really loves you. There is another reason he is not willing to tell.

2. Do not look for reasons why he ended the relationship.

There is only one reason why he ended your relationship. He just does not love you. Do not waste your time thinking of reasons or what you should have done. Move on and be open to a man who will truly love you.

3. Do not get hang up on your past.

Do not nag or distrust your current boyfriend just because your ex hurt you. Do not treat him or the relationship the same way. Do not compare. He will not react the same way as your ex. Do not be worried that your simple mistakes will cause him to look for another girl. What happened with your ex was not your fault. It was not because you didn't guard him enough or you didn't make him happy

4. Do not look into images.

How many times have you met a girl who didn't have the best image in school or at the office, but you get to know the girl and found out she was actually extremely nice? Do not rely on images. Oftentimes, it is far from reality. Do not fear men just because your "supposedly" perfect ex-boyfriend mistreated you.

5. Always have your own set of rules.

Set your limits on how far you'd go for a guy. It's perfectly ok to give and do everything as long as it's worth it. And it's worth it if the guy is treating you right.

6. Do not be scared to lose him.

Don't be scared that he'll break up with you. Once you are afraid of losing him, you easily can be taken advantage. Be strong and if something is unacceptable, do not accept it and speak up.

7. Avoid calling your guy.

It's a guy thing. The relationship will definitely be better if it's the guy who's calling, not the girl. He will get tired of you if you keep on calling. He will lose interest and challenge. More so, he will get annoyed. But it's a girl thing also that your fingers get too itchy until you dial his number. But avoid as much as possible. Call only if really needed (like checking if your suspicions are reasonable).

8. There is a guy who will value you.

There is a guy out there who can make you feel valued, appreciated, and loved. And I mean, not just during your first few weeks together. So don't lose hope. Don't settle for a lesbian if you are not attracted to women. There is a man out there who can love you like a girl can

Also, do not believe him when he says it's just the way he really is. He's not the sweet or expressive-type. Remember during your first few weeks together? Where has that sweet guy gone? He simply is not that into you anymore.

9. Always be the only one, no matter what.

Do not ever fall for a guy who has another girl, be it his wife, girlfriend, or any girl that he says he just can't get rid of for whatever reason. If you truly believe that he loves you and for some reason, he can't leave or let go of another girl, then you are no different from any ordinary mistress.

10. He must respect you.

No matter how long the relationship has been, he should always show respect towards you.

11. If he fooled you, end it.

Philandering once is enough. You can never trust nor respect the person again.

12. Never start a relationship the wrong way.

Do not steal another girl's man, for whatever reason. Nor should you enter a relationship for the wrong reasons (loneliness, on the rebound, getting back at your ex, man-dependency, etc.) it is bound not to last. You will only end up wasting more years of your life.

13. Do not force yourself into a relationship.

Do not get into a relationship just because your friends are getting impatient with your dating escapades and the one hasn't come yet. Do not choose who to say yes to based on superficial things like money, looks, cars, etc.. If you are even thinking of these things, you have not fallen in love yet.

14. Do not settle.

If you are not happy anymore with your relationship, break up instantly. He will not stay with you forever no matter how upright he might seem to be. Eventually, he will also want love and happiness in his life.

15. A relationship has to have love.

Love is the only thing that will push you to give your efforts into making the relationship work. And believe me, keeping a relationship requires genuine efforts of both parties.

16. Don't be afraid to be single.

It's fun to be single, try it. You can go out whenever and wherever you want. You are free. You can date whomever you want and you get to go out for free! Do not get a boyfriend just for the sake of having one. Do not settle.

17. Be a good girl.

Be a good girl to attract a good guy. Enter the relationship with sincere intentions. Take the guy and the relationship seriously with the plan of spending the rest of your life with that person (of course, this is after you had your bit of fun in your younger years). If you compare your flings from your real relationships, you will know that the latter makes you happier and more fulfilled.

18. Love without limits.

Whether you loved and gave everything or loved but held out for some things, if the relationship ends, you still get hurt. But if you gave your everything, you were happy and you could say that it was worth it. If you didn't give your all, you get hurt for nothing.

19. You will get over him.

Love is over-stated. Love eventually ends and you are free to love another.

20. Be the one.

Act like you are the one. Don't be a nagger. Don't hinder his gimmicks. Don't give in to him too easily. Make him treat you as important. Don't be easy. Don't be like every other girl he had in his life.

love, now and always,
