Balik Tan-aw


2012 has been a mixture of good, bad and better for me.  To be honest, I do have better years. =)


Now as I sit alone here, staring at the blinking cursor, hoping to makes sense of this post, I couldn't help but be a lil more emo reflective and excited for the coming year at the same time!!




Iiwan ko lahat ng negativity ng 2012 today!!  
sa inyo na lahat sila, lahat.. lahat...
Dahil, akin... 

AKIN ang 2013 !!!!!
(sabay tawa na pang-kontrabida)
 


Happy New Year everyone!!!



Be bongga,

Do not let any man - fat or skinny - judge you in any way!! =)

#Help


Simbang gabi officially started. 


The Ayala Triangle Park becomes your annual 'itikan' place.


Malls are crowded.  And this time, people actually buy (not just hangout)! The cashiers do have long lines.


Traffic is much much worse at its worst.


Christmas presents are all over my desk and bag. (thank you!)


Starbucks!!!! And all those sticker hungry people!!!
And don't get me started on the rise of crime rate (holdup/snatch and the likes).


========================


Today, it is exactly nine freakin' days before Christmas!!  And guess what, I still don't have that Xmas spirit in me!!!!!  I know, it's S-A-D.

Lately, I've become some tired lil old bitch who doesn't seem to give a damn and just wants to sleep and sleep some more!!  It's like me and Xmas are having a bad romance this year!!!


Ano bang kailangan kong gawin?!!! I don't want to be all KJ and be known as The Vince Who Stole Christmas!!! I need to get my grove back and actually look forward to the holidays!!!  #HELP!!!



Oh Christmas tree - jingle thy bells,

Mpower


"He is out there!"  


I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs to make a very valid point, as soon as she started to turn glad tidings into shitty emo melancholy.


He is out there!  And just like you, he's also waiting for that perfect time when the universe fate will bring the two of you to meet - perhaps in the most unlikely, unexpected ways.


It'll all begin with an unassuming smile.  Name exchanges and a handshake. You will tell each other stories.  Commonalities.  And then you'll wonder, how the most boring historical facts about each other with make both of you smile.  That's just how it is.  That's how it'll be.  You will laugh about each other's jokes - even the corny ones, without minding the time.  


He will ask you to share many meals with him.  Breakfasts.  Lunches.  And a lot of dinners (formal and informal).  He will send you silly messages, even naughty ones - you'll find them less tacky, and more cute.  He'll make you blush.  He'll tell you you're pretty.  Always.  On and on.  And you'll believe him, all the time. 


He will make your birthdays and holidays happier.  He'll surprise you every so often with his thoughtfulness and sincerity.  He'll be sweet.  Really sweet you can get diabetes.  He'll make you feel wanted.  Needed.  Loved.  Yes, he'll love you.  With all his heart.  Like you've never been loved before.  He'll make you feel special.  Prized.  Valued.   And you will do the same.  Just as it should be.


Then comes the beginning of your 'happy ever after'.

--------------------------------------


Lately, I find myself being surrounded by people who put my optimism to the test.  Haha.  While their point remain valid, I sometimes feel compelled to make them realize that their current situation is not at all bad.  And it can get a lil frustrating sometimes, especially now that the holidays are just about a blink away.


Someone once said that the best way to spend the holidays is to "be with someone who makes you happy".  To those who can, GREAT!!! Cherish every moment and be grateful.  To those who can't find anyone as of yet, be patient and perhaps consider this -


"Be with someone who makes you happy"
(you owe it to yourself!!!)



Happy 12.12.12,

Balls and Bells


I finally got to see the much talked about wedding of Carmina and Zoren!!! And boy (bukod sa nandun si Tito Boy tlaga), it was very puurrrrtttyyyy!!!


There's something magical about seeing a bride walk down the aisle that makes me shed a tear or two.  But this one made me cry buckets! #emotional





Zoren did such an amazing job in doing this! He just set the bar much higher for all the guys out there! Haha. And dahil jan, gusto kitang i-trend and ikampanya para sa isang malaking project!


Zoren Legazpi as Christian Grey!!!!!



Love love love,

 


p.s. Carmina was indeed very pretty, in her pink lipstick and pink nails!!

#Affirmation


The choices you make, ultimately defines the kind of person you turn into. 

So it really is good to once in a while have a moment. 

To stop and check , if you still like the person you're becoming.





Because lately, I am not too fond of myself.  
And it's making me a wee bit sad.


I miss me,

Sob Story


Some rather clever guy once said that "life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans".

And today, out of the many days this year, I can very well say that he was right!  


Because just as I was minding my own business job, with Pink singing Sober in the background, this pretty lil thing popped in out of nowhere.....



Thanks to my lovely team!! 
You are the sweetest evurrr!!!



And just like that, it hit me..... Birthday ko na pala soon!!!!! And I really, seriously don't have any plans yet!!!! Shet na malagket!!!!

Oh gawd.... Walang party, walang lakad, walang beach.... 
Magsayaw na lang tayo!!!!

How I wish every inflight video is like this.

OctoVoid



I admit, sometimes, I do get so much into the fantasy of things, that I tend to forget all about the practicalities or the realities even.




It makes me question.
 whine.
sad.
 Ugh, all these self inflicted drama
and negativity.
Kadiri.



Ang then by some stroke of luck or genius,
I pick myself up
take a long nice shower
fix my hair
put on my expensive best outfit
carmex.
I look at me in my full view mirror
and tell myself that




It is not all about 
getting ahead 
and finishing first at everything.
In life, 
let us not forget that 
mere surviving,
is somehow already winning in itself! 

Thank you ARANEYTAAAAAAA!!!


Amoy Mia Michaels to!!!
gusto ko yung balibagan effect tapos may colored powders!! hahaha.




I think I might be getting the birthday blues waaaaayyyy ahead of its time this year. Lolz.




Must learn how to dance like P!nk,

Disculpa Pública

Dearest #SAB,


First, allow me to greet you a very good day/night, as the case may be! 

Olah!!!

Second, do accept my sincere apology for having caused you undue stress as I let you search for a PM version of this drink last weekend, not once but twice!!! Hihi...




Trust me, I really thought this was a drink intended for the morning thirst and that there's an afternoon version of some sort.  Swear.  I kid you not!!!!  


It was only today that I found out that if you turn the bottle, you will actually get this;




~~~ WAG KANG MABIBIGLA ~~~

                                                  VIT-AM-IN
                                                   Verum est. Totoo ba ito???


Ang cool no?  
Lapse in judgement lang.  
Sorry for my shortcomings. 
Patawad naaaa!!!!! 




Flawed and all,

Lighten Up

Sometimes, watching the news can be a lil too stressful for me.  It either makes me run fast on the treadmill or it upsets me a lot and sucks my energy so much that I couldn't even finish my cardio set for the day.


Then this....





It's soooooooooooo cute, I think I just raped the repeat button!!!!



De-stressed,

Thinking Aloud

Sometimes, I couldn't help but think that we are in a generation living mostly on disposability. That when something is broken, we don't fix it.  Not even try.  We simply throw it out and get a replacement, ASAP.  Not a minute wasted.


In this day and age of microwaved meals, instant coffee, instant noodles and instagram, where almost everything and anything can be copied reproduced pirated, sometimes far more better than the original - is there anything that can still be considered indespensable?  


When something gets broken - image, reputation, family, careers, relationships - it seems like the more common (and somehow) logical thing to do is to leave and move on.  Why are we so afraid to fix it?  Are we slowly becoming a generation of cowards? Of quitters?


Is there anything that is still worth it?

Talent Portion


Sabi ng SM, "we've got it all for you".  

Dati ayokong maniwala bilang naubusan sila ng favorite kong alcogel sa Watson's, sa loob ng SM department store before!!!

But it looks like bumabawi sila. Kulang na lang pagbubuksan nila ang mga alak na tinda at voila, instant bar na agad agad!!!  May live entertainment + alak, pulutan na lang ang kulang!!!


Click! Click!




Best in short-shorts si Ate! Tantiya ko, dun nanggagaling ang kanyang very powerful voice. Kaya lahat ng maong pants ko, pinagpuputol ko ngayong gabi!!!!

Shake Off

 
People think a soulmate is your perfect fit and that's what everyone wants. 
But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, and the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

Pangarap Kong Jackpot


It was one of those times when everything just seemed perfect.  You walk shoulder to shoulder, talking, giggling even, not minding everyone else in the very public area.  The weather is fine.  The moon lights the night cinematographically well.  Lush greens surround you and the cool breeze simply makes you feel that you  are not in Manila at all.  It was a whole new world you're seeing.  And for the first time, you are seeing the same person, in a postively different light.


And just like a scene straight out of a very romantic-much-talked-about-top-grossing-CathyGarciaMolina-directed movie,  he tells you that he wants to see the world with you.  You stand there in awe, beautiful eyes and all of course, as you try to control yourself from doing a tarsier jump.  Control your emotions, your excitement, your kilig, etcetera, as butterflies dragons fill your stomach.


And then he repeats it.  As if the first time didn't make that much impact already.  "I want to see the world with you.  Let's start with Hong Kong. Tara!!!"  John Lloyd asks.  Yes, THE John Lloyd Cruz is asking me to go to Hong Kong with him.  And just when I was about to say my sweetest, screeching YES, tumunog ang alarm!!!!  7:30am na, papasok na ako sa office!!! Shet di ba?!

Chapter 14




In this world where everything is somehow, someway shoved down your throat,
the freedom to be YOURSELF - and be accepted, 
is still one of the best things.


This feels like Titanium 2.0



You make me feel good,
You make me feel safe,
You make me feel like I could live another day
You make me feel good,
You make me feel safe,
You know I wouldn't have it any other way


Let's Dance,

Awesomeness


It was one of those moments na yung nakita mo pa lang, hinuhusgahan mo na agad?! I was guilty. Yaiks.

When she came on stage, I thought she's gonna be one of those funny performances na walang masyadong relevance.  But no, this girl surprised me big time.


I was in awe the entire time I was watching this.  
She kinda reminds me of Bayang Barrios. Hehe. 

I AM A FAN!!!! 

GO KZ.


Thank God she did not give up on singing!!!

Right Back at Ya



Have you ever had that feeling na okay naman na lahat, tapos may biglang gaganon?


Today marks the end of what could be THE most stressful (physically and emotionally) week of the year to date!  I wanted to bombard this space with so much rants and painful words just so that I can let it all out - how crappy it made me feel.   But the rain stopped me from doing so. 



The recent heavy downpour reminded me instead, of the many blessings I may have forgotten to be thankful for.  And that somehow brought my awareness back to the more positive side of life.  So what if my frenemy makes more stupid moves.  So what if I've heard more lies.  So what if my back account got hacked in freakin China.  So what if I became really poor for a week.  No to Negativity.



I kinda surprised myself there.  It is so not me to be this cool, calm and composed, when I was dealing with each given situation.  Ito na ba yung tinatawag nilang "maturity"? Lolz.  Oh whatever that is, I love it.  So yeah, anyone, you can TRY to fuck my world around and I'd be still be here, standing tall or nag-pi-pirouette na ganyan.....

Now, I strongly feel like this is my song!!!
I feel so empowered.
I definitely need to be able to sing this, somewhere, soon!! Lolz.





 
I am bigger than anyone's negativity,

Versions


There maybe a gazillion video versions of people singing this song, but I will always have a soft spot for these Harvard boys! Hihi...




Any other video of the same nature will be tagged as second rate, trying hard, puttycat.  Or simply put, mediocre.  =)



I guess Harvard is not that boring at all,
