Let it go!

Yes, I went away for an extended holiday with my love…this blog with the full intention just to give more time for myself, to enjoy every moment of so called life and to straighten up some little issues.

I don’t know exactly what happened, except that I was literally in a different world and I was having a good relationship with my bed. It was soo beautiful.

To be honest, I did not feel like touching my laptop. I felt out of groove, out of touch with reality.  My depression wouldn't go away. I don’t want to simply post an excuse...“I just don’t have time” the lazy procrastination monster.  I knew there were things to be taken care of, I was even questioning if there was a purpose to it all.  

This post is probably really boring. I think its okay, it’s not like I have a professional blog right? I can choose to be a little self-indulgent:) I was scared to look at my blog. Fearing all the fellow bloggers have given up on me.  It’s no fun without having supportive, kind fellow bloggers who actually take the time out to read but comment. Hope you are reading this :)

Weeks after weeks, I tried to start something new, something that would bring back my sunny side. I started to eat fruits and vegetables. I even tried the motors diet. Yes, it was successful for only 2 dumb weeks! I’m not good in sanctioning my life! I’m just good in taking pictures and uploading it on my Instagram account.

I even set my foot inside a gym. Enrolled for one month, got my personal trainer and so far so good. I actually don’t consider myself to be in bad shape. Though it’s a joke among my close friends that having me along for a brisk walk is akin to walking poodle, I indulge in a poodle-like perambulation on an almost daily basis.

But there is one thing that I want to do. I want the heat envelope me as I walk outside, hear the sounds of waves, smell that salty air with clear skies, blazing sun, that gentle summer breeze, and  lazy afternoons.

I want to go to the beach!

Run in a dome!

Oh my blog how I miss theee….I actually wanted to update it, a lot of things has happened that are worth sharing but I guess I was so lazy. Work still eats a big chunk of my time. I’m not complaining! I love my job:)  It pays my bills.

My sister was also in town and stayed with me for a whole month in my little box rented apartment. So I have to make sure I have food! So a trip to grocery every other day is a must.  She is such a monster, a morning person. She needs to have breakfast if not, she turn into dungeons. It was a test of physical, mental and emotional strength. She broke my monthly allowance.

For the month she stay with me, she though me one thing, to eat good food…healthy food. She knows that I’m living a not-so-exemplary lifestyle. If I have seen this coming, I could have just close my door. Leave a note. I’m on vacation. Go and find a place for yourself…lol

Well, I’m just human with a bigger heart than my mouth.  I’ve welcome her with boxes of Jco donuts. Her favorite! In response of what she has though me, I got crazy. I stopped smoking completely (lol). Now I’m eating breakfast religiously.  I went as far as shopping for vegetables, fruits, fish and cook. And boy did I cook.

And then I decided to do a Motors diet. A detox.

I want to recount my first day experience but for now I feel like watching my favorite TV series.

The Real Deal

Things aren't always going to be fair in the real world, that’s just the way it is but for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question. What’s worse: not getting everything you wished for or getting it but finding out it’s not enough? The rest of your life is being shaped right now with the dreams you chase, the choices you make and the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now. — Haley James Scott, One Tree Hill

nobody can save you but yourself.
you will be put again and again
into nearly impossible situations.
they will attempt again and again
through subterfuge, guise and
force to make you submit, quit and/or die quietly
inside.

nobody can save you but yourself and it will be easy enough to fail
so very easily but don’t, don’t, don’t.just watch them.
listen to them.do you want to be like that?
a faceless, mindless, heartless being?
do you want to experience death before death?

nobody can save you but yourself and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won but if anything is worth winning then
this is it.

think about it.
think about saving your self.

-Charles Bukowski, nobody but you.

Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go. 
You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be."
- Rick Warren

"What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. 
Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. 
Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.

Hello 2014!

How is it January 11 already? I haven’t written anything yet. Where did my last month of 2013 go?

All I've done so far was eliminate junk on my apartment. I've also been cleaning up my files in digital world and edit unnecessary things. This year, I would like to practice minimalism. I want to live frugally, sustainably and naturally.  Own less. live More-sticking to the essential.

Christmas is all about merry making but then it was hard for our family to celebrate it. Knowing that we've just lost our father. The one who love the season, who put up our simple tree and prepare the holiday dinner.

My family spent the days leading up to New Year with our family house. We planned to stay at my sister house fronting the beach but things change and weather was not good so we decided to stay home.

Dec 22 with my sister,  we decided to take a bus ride heading home since were bringing two big boxes and lots of stuffs. I no longer want to pay triple than my airfare so I have to suffer 24 hours exhausting long drive.

While on the road bound home, we make a promise to each other that no matter what, we still have to celebrate Christmas the best we can and we know Papa will be happy for it.

When we arrived home, it feels like ground zero. I can’t see any blinking lights.

So the next day we decided to put up our tree and Christmas ornaments around the house.  This year we decided to hang cute teddy bears and candy cane.
The next day, we went to do the grocery then plan what to cook for holiday dinner.
We celebrated the midnight mass with my nephew. Mom and my two sisters were too tired preparing
our holiday dinner so they were not able to come with us.
Then  we had our simple Christmas eve dinner.
 

Christmas morning, we had a quick family breakfast then visit our dear Papa.
Then went back home. The exciting part opening of gifts.
The kids were really good, their faces while opening the gifts was priceless but still we have moments in silence then look at each other. We still have that scab in our heart losing the one we love, who loved Christmas more than us our dear father:(



2013 was eccentric for our family, like many, I’m glad we bid goodbye so let’s be MORE positive with 2014! 

Let me share to you one thing my father taught me… that no one is perfect, that we all have our scars. We carry around personal demons that we struggle with from time to time. And that’s ok. We can’t expect ourselves, or anyone else for that matter, to be perfect. My father has its bad side and like all of us, its part of our lives, his imperfection made him who he was.  If he hadn't been through what he’d been through, he never would have been able to motivate us, his children and others who become part of his lives and motivate him somehow.

So for this 2014, I wish all my friends, relatives and readers to embrace the negative as a learning experience and take steps forward no matter how scary. Life is really good and really short. Embrace it! Dance with the rain.

I also pray that we find strength within ourselves and face the challenges of life with gratitude. I won’t stop praying for I know prayer is the only weapon I have. Let’s not also forget to give back, to share what we have. To make things better.

Life is Good!

Give


I know, this image is tough one but it’s the reality how Visayas islands have been devastated by super typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan. You've got to be made of stone if it doesn't give you an uncomfortable feeling.

It’s almost a month since Yolanda struck our country but as the rest of us continue to move on with our daily lives people who were badly affected still struggle every day, to find food, shelter and comfort from traumatic experience they've gone through.

I thank God and grateful it spared my hometown.  My family and friends are all, safe, sane and sound.  Unfortunately hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people who survived and lost their lives.

December comes and yes its happy days and holiday season for most of us, who were not affected by the storm. Probably will be spending a lot on Christmas presents, decorations and filed up fridges with food.  It won’t balance our spending madness but why not also donate something for a good cause. This is the time that these people need our help.

There are so many hard working organizations out there that need your support. I encourage you all to give, it might be small or big but remember a little help goes a long way.

I also ask every one of you to continuously remember them and include them in your prayers. Let’s not stop helping them; it is through these difficult times when we must remember that all of us are connected as one.

God Bless

Gatsby Party!

As always, the anniversary party was held at Republiq club, Resort world Manila.  holding an anniversary party is a great way to recognize the hard working employees and such a great pleasure for me as  a part of the company who worked hard for my bills and other responsibility. lol

This time it seems like a song resonates in my head after the party, it feels like a soundtrack in a movie but nevertheless it was a fun night.

Kabog ang sarimanok ni ate!
Kuya ang war nasa Zamboanga...lost in space ka yata! choz!
 
lafang galore!
ubos ang tassle sa divisoria...winner! very Gatsby vibe!
kampay! waley paki alam sina kuya basta tagay lang! gorabels!
Live band that complete the Gatsby vibe!
accepting my smile award at si kuya parang nasa kanto lang ang peg!
pagoda tragedy!
Di naman ako kita dito masydo! next party dapat 15 inches na takong ko!
riot na! hala cge! shake it to left to the right!
Freshness..dipa haggardness sa ka cha-cha:)
Smile award! "For always bringing that ray of sunshine to the office
because of that radiant smile! Pakak lang! Thank you for voting me!

I believe that on that night I went to Gatsby‘s house I was one of the few
guests who had actually been invited...lol
 

life is good!
