Memories

The name "Pedring" reminds me of that Ang TV joke.....
"Pedrinnggg! Pedringgggggggg!!!!"
Pero the one we have now is less funny!! 
   
 I hope this typhoon goes away soon!!
 
Stay safe and dry everyone,

Recapitulate

It has been one hellova week!!!!

Right now, I am so looking forward to sleep but I just had to let these thoughts out before they consume me.  Baka maging sanhi pa ito ng pagkawala ng aking antok!

So here goes... No backstory.  No nonsense.  Pure lessons.  Oo, in bullet points!! hahahaha.
  • In any situation, never underestimate the power of smile.  Strangers can become less strange and old friends can become familiar - once again.
  • Two monologues do not make a dialogue. Talking is different from communicating.  In the same way that hearing is different from listening. 

  • S2 tweeted this recently "pag-isipan m0 nga kung tama p b yang nararanasan m0, prang unfair na kasi kaw ang nag sa suffer".  I was nodding in agreement - para akong tanga. Hahaha. 

  • Don't settle for "good enough" when "great" is attainable. Self explanatory.

  • Laughter is still the best medicine.  But refrain from doing so while eating corn on the cob.

  • Hindi pa rin ako naniniwala na lahat dapat may 'closure'. lolz.


I've experienced an immense growth this week.  Buti na lang, binisita ako ng aking paboritong bagay kanina!!!

 Mrs. Yulo's Strawberry Shortcake

At nagdala pa siya ng mga bagong barkada!!!





And the winner is......

Mahilig talaga ako sa maalat.


Yun lang phouwsz!

I am soooo looking forward to this weekend - a time off from everything!!!
Happy weekend everyone!!!


Keep on shining,

All Pumped Up

I was listening to this song all day.  Well, at least the original version.  And, as fate would have it, my angel sends me a link to this version, just now...


Makes me wonder.... Could it be that we are both listening to the same song, at the same time, on different parts of the world??! Where you at?! In Tagalog, san ka pa???

I know what you're thinking, Oo ang arte ko. Gusto ko lang talagang ipilit yung second paragraph. Pero pwede di ba? Buahaha. Ayaw paawat.
Basta ang cute ng version na to!!


magaling ka ate. sana sumikat ka!


ilike - a lot,

Kuryos


Una sa lahat, bubusina muna ako.

Pasintabi sa mga single - by choice and by chance.

************

Pero minsan talaga, hindi ko mapigilang mag-wonder.  Bakit kung sino pa yung mga naturingang single, sila pa yung buong tapang kung magbigay ng mga advice pagdating sa relationships.  Wagas na wagas kung makapagbuhos ng opinyon, minsan may bonus pang emotions.


Ang matindi pa dun, by single, I mean yung mga NBSB - No Boyfriend Since Birth.


Na-kuryos tuloy ako. Anong pinag-uugatan nito?!

Parang ka-level ng threat to national security ang importance.



Enlighten me,

On A Roll

If not for the scorching heat coming from the mighty sun, I would've thought yesterday was Christmas!!  Seryoso.  But it was not Christmas - at least not yet.  It was only Mid-Autmn Festival. 

Mooncake Mania

I can't tell you how much I love mooncakes - I welcome every piece of it on my table!! See, i told you I'm easy. Hahaha. =)






Perhaps this is one of those Chinese traditions/festivities that I actually like and enjoy.  Everyone was just soooooo perky and energetic, I myself could not quite keep up!!!  


We all had the traditional dice game.  Funny thing is, I came from a Chinese school and couldn't remember the last time I actually participated in one! I know - I am quite a disgrace in the Chinese community - so sue me!!  Hahaha. 



It was sooooooooo much fun I could almost die last night from laughing so fuckin' hard!!!  I mean, these people are wild - they were all so into it! All for a bag of chips and some cash!! Nakakatuwa.  




Here's my loot.  In fairness, sobrang pinaghirapan ko talaga to - ayoko tuloy silang kainin!! Hahahaha.




I had a blast!!! Sana buwan buwan na lang ang Mooncake festival!!!!



Hopia like it - because I did,

Song of the Moment

 
I am lost, I am vain,

Sana December na bukas,

The 'Cool' Guy

I promised myself that I'll be all cool about everything.
Inhale. Exhale.  Long deep breaths. Kalma lang.
I've memorized my lines - "hey there" - "how've you been?"
"I'm good" - "Been busy".
Swabe lang. 

Ang peg ko today, Jacklyn Jose.  
Pensive.  Nonchalant.  Monotone.
I didn't want to sound too excited.  Too eager.
I wanted it to be casual.  Unaware.  Unaffected.
That was the plan.  

Pero wala.
The moment I heard you say "hello" on the other line.
Nawala na lahat ng nasa isip ko. Tulala na!!
The #SAB effect!!!  Argh!!! Olats!!!



Don't mind the dogs


Now, I wanted to write something substantial.  Something visceral.  Makabagbag damdamin. Pero wala akong maisip.  
Wala naman talaga akong sasabihin talaga e.
I just MISS YOU, TERRIBLY- a lot, very very much!!!!!  
Word.
uwi ka na!! uwi! uwi! uwi!!! Lolz.


Group huggggggg,

The Silver Lining

It has been the busiest week in my entire banking career and somehow - as fate would have it, this was also the most challenging week in my personal relationship.  So whoever said that your career and personal life tend to have an opposite fate - LIED!  Sometimes nagsasabay sila - in tandem.  I guess that's why there's a word 'suicide' in the dictionary.


Anyway, this is not about me committing suicide nor even contemplating about it.  Sorry but I chose a different path. Haha.  Despite that 'hell week' experience, something good actually happened and somehow evened out everything. 


And it came in a white box!!!




When we opened it, we saw the most beautiful thing that week!!! hahahaha..


It looked like lil hearts! Lolz.



This was Mrs. Yulo's Strawberry Shortcake!!!  I've been dying - yes, dying!! - to have a taste of this precious lil thing for ages.  But somehow, something will always come up whenever I try to get my hands on them.  But this time, it happened.  Just in time for Mama Mary's birthday!!! 


So was it worth the wait??? Hell yeah.  It was worth all the buzz.  Others like the icing a lil cake-ish but I liked mine frozen.  It's like eating a really good strawberry ice cream in between a butter chiffon (with a hint of orange?) cake!! Not too sweet but not bland. Everything is just right so you don't get that 'umay' factor. 


Perfection!!



This made me soooooooooo happy - amidst all the circumstances!! I couldn't get that huge smile off my face the entire time I was trying to down one big slice!!! Finally, I was able to have a cake and eat it too!! Life is good afterall.


This was the doughnut in the whole,



Grey Area


Tonight, something in me died. 

It was sudden.  Unexpected.


I just can't figure out quite exactly what it is yet.  


But definitely, something went missing.  

It left.  

And I am not sure if it'll ever come back. 
Or if I even want it to be back.



Word.




"After a trauma your body is at its most vulnerable.  Response time is critical so you’re suddenly surrounded by people; doctors, nurses, specialists, technicians.  Surgery is a team sport; everyone pushing for the finish line, putting you back together again.  But surgery is a trauma in and of itself.  And once it’s over the real healing begins.  We call it recovery.

Recovery is NOT a team sport. It’s a solitary distance run. It’s long, and it’s exhausting, and it’s lonely as hell.

 
The length of your recovery is determined by the extent of your injuries.  And it’s not always successful, no matter how hard we work at it.  Some wounds may never fully heal.  You might have to adjust to a whole new way of living.  Things may have changed too radically to ever go back to what they were.  You might not even recognize yourself.  It’s life you haven’t recovered at all.  You’re a whole new person.  With a whole new life."

Two


Of course, hindi ko pwedeng palampasin ang pagkakataong batiin ang pinaka-paboritong anak sa pamilya namin...


Kahit na alam naming lahat na isa kang brat....


Kahit lahat ng attention laging nasa iyo....


Kahit mas masarap pa minsan ang ulam mo kesa sa amin....


Okay lang, kasi lab ka namin...



Happy Birthday Melai!!!

See? Supladita.



Your ebil step brother,

Going the Distance

They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder.  I say, it can make the heart go wander as well.

Arrrggghhh!!!


You see, the problem about distance is that you don't really know whether you are being missed or slowly being forgotten.


Now, I'm beginning to see things differently.  Taking each day as it comes.  But as tricky time goes by, it just intensifies my reasons - why I never wanted to be in one in the first place.


I'm dealing with my own demons,
it does get lonely sometimes.



I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you,
