Saturday of fun

All of my life it seemed that something has been missing. I didn’t know what to do…
You opened the door, and let the sunshine in. My life will never be the same again…

You can’t stop smiling for the simple reason that you keep hearing this song play in your head over and over again. You look everywhere and only one face registers in your mind. And then that song again…

Now that I have you by The Company

You feel as if everything’s going to be alright. Everything will get better. You need not choose to be happy. Because you are happy. There is this giddy feeling inside you that has a life of its own. And you can’t suppress it. And you don’t want to.

This isn’t love. But a giddy feeling with a music humming and a life of its own.

I’m livin’ in a brighter world now that I have you.


Last Saturday night was one of the best nights of my life in a long while. I spent the latter part of the afternoon until the next day with my high school friends. It was so much fun! Oo, pakner, nagkita na nga kami ni Tonyo. Hehehe

We were laughing the whole time. Teriyaki Boy in Tomas Morato was witness to a lot of our get-togethers. Everytime we think of seeing each other, we automatically think of Teriyaki Boy, not because we love their food (well I love the sushi, maki and katsudon there), but mainly because it was there that we spent our first get-together. May sentimental value kumbaga :)

Anthony, my one true love (hahaha joke lang na totoo), went home after 11 years in Canada. So he’s the reason we had a get-together. He contacted me and told me he wanted to see everyone. Always the organizer of get-togethers, I contacted everyone and arranged for us to meet nga. I was the early bird, as usual. Nainis nga ako. I told them that next time, I will make a grand entrance na. Hahaha. Nah, it’s a habit already, being on time. I always have this thinking na I’ll be missing something when I don’t arrive on time. Hahaha. And boy, would I miss a lot kung nahuli ako! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Basta it was so much fun! I even forgot PPP and blogging for a whole day.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Monday everyone and may all of us have a wonderful, blessed week ahead!

Let’s all choose to be happy today :)


Shen has been my friend for over 15 years now. We became classmates in second year high school. We became friends, a part of a big group actually. We’re still friends until now. Hopefully for the rest of our lives.

Recently, we went to Trinoma to catch up with what’s happening in our lives. » Read more


I had a chance to chat with my girl friends, Che, Jing and Shen last April 29, after Tim’s wedding reception at the Coconut Palace. We were catching up on the events in each other’s lives and it was fun.

Che is now a registered nurse working at the Orthopedic Hospital. Her husband is working as well and their son, Von, is now 6 years old. Che is working so hard because her mother in law will finance her application to the US after a year. Che has a soft spot for the elderly. And she’ll be a very good nurse for those people because she’s naturally a caring person.

Jing is now working for Samsung Electronics. This girl has two kids already and you wouldn’t even believe it! She’s so sexy and fab! :)

Shen, on the other hand, has been my topic in this post.

We all chatted the night away at Coffee Bean in Banawe. We waited for Che to get off her shift and we went our way past 1am.

It’s always fun to spend time with close friends, especially with your barkada.

Memeโ€ฆ Random Facts About Me

I was tagged by both Tsina and Angie to write about random facts/things/habits about myself. I checked my posts because I remember I was tagged by a blogger to write about random facts about me before. And true enough, I wrote 8 of it here.

Anyway, I will do this again kasi labs ko si bunso Tsina and Angie‘s a new blog friend so here goes… Tsina’s tag requires 15 while Angie’s 7. So I’m making it 20 random facts about me :)

1. I donโ€™t eat melons. Or anything melon-flavored.
2. I have a short attention span. This is probably the reason why I carry and read 3 books at any given period of time. Or why when you talk to me, expect several shifts in topic. Hehehe…
3. I need two pillows under my head, a pillow for my feet and a body pillow beside me to be able to sleep well. Ang arte ko noh? ๐Ÿ˜€
4. I am currently addicted to chocolate-pistachio-flavored shake of Fiorgelatto. Yum!
5. I’ve never been girly-girly/kikay even when I was a kid. Influenced by older male cousins, I grew up playing GI Joes, tumbang preso, patintero, agawan-base, mataya-taya, sipa and the like.
6. I love traveling, watching movies, malling and window shopping aloneโ€ฆ Kung di ko rin lang close kasama ko, Iโ€™d rather be alone.
7. I’m not afraid of heights.
8. I am too trusting (sometimes to the point of stupidity na). I make it a point to look for something positive in a person. Minsan kahit wala, hanap pa rin ๐Ÿ˜€ I easily forgive. Can’t help it really. I’ve lived with the thought that I don’t want to die with someone hating me or vice versa. Life is short. I want to be prepared always.
9. I love Carly Simon, Bee Gees, Johnny Mathis, The Police, New Kids on the Block and everything from the 50s, 70s and 80s. I’m an old soul, too. Got it from my mom. But I also love alternative music, R&B, jazz and soul music. When I need to concentrate and really think or just calm my nerves, I listen to Enya.
10. I’m a crybaby. I cry when I hear a song reminding me of something. I cry when I see an old blogger friend who scarcely visited me for months tag or leave a comment. I cry when I watch a touching scene. What can I say, I’m a sentimental person.
11. I’m friendly, though looking at me you’d think otherwise. I look scary raw and masungit when not smiling. Pero honestly, I am a cheerful, fun-loving and kind person. Promise! Hehehe :)
12. I love meeting people from all walks of life, of all ages. I talk to them and make chika as if we’re of the same age.
13. I’m not a plastic person. If I like you, I’d tell everyone about it. If I don’t like you, you’d surely know it. And when I say I love you or I miss you or I want you to be my friend to anybody, I mean it.
14. I’m a Catholic, an active and practicing one, but I respect other religions and I’m open to knowing more about it. I sometimes attend Christian services with Chinese friends. I am asking a friend to bring me to a INC service as well. I would love to explore what makes their religion unique from mine.
15. I love spending time chatting with friends over a meal. Girl talks with Nona… chats with ate Ghee, Amby, mareng Ju and Inay… And I will never forget the Sunken Garden chikahan with Cai and Des :) And of course, the Padi’s EB with ate Ghee, Nona and kuya ๐Ÿ˜€
16. I speak my mind and sometimes it gets me in trouble. Hay…
17. I would love to have more shobes and bunsos and kuyas and ates and titas and titos online and offline.
18. I have a cellphone accessory slippers and a pair of slipper earrings. Sana someone will give me a slipper pillow or anything resembling a slipper :)
19. I’m an Accountant by profession, a homebody, a moonlighting romance novelist, a geek, a good daughter and a great ate to my siblings. A good friend.
20. Lives by this golden rule: Do not do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you. Karma is true and it can either be good or bad, depending on one’s past actions.

I hope I didn’t bore you, friends ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Tuesday everyone! God bless!
