Life Journal: Our 7th Anniversary

“Is he sweet?” It was a question I never thought I could ever hear that’s why I never thought of sugar-coating my answer as I simply said NO.

I’ve always posted about our travels and some food excursions but I never talked about our love story here on my blog. Not even about who he is except for his name. LOL! So, this guy, Jason is the first (and I pray the last) guy I ever dated and yes, I also went to the praning stage where I won’t stop texting him and I get mad whenever he won’t reply and I also get furious whenever his computer games got more attention from him than I. But that was years ago, why? It’s simple, I got tired. Getting tired doesn’t mean I fell out of love but because I got tired being infuriated over petty things that obviously lead to fights. Few years later, we still do fight a lot but it doesn’t get to the point where I’d cry myself to sleep and regret the next day because of my puffy eyes. Ha! Ha! We just fought over where to have lunch or because I get too irritated easily (maybe because I was hungry or PMSing). There are times that he’ll just ignore my rants but there are few moments where he’ll rant in return which would irritate me even more. Oh my, what a crazy muggle am I?

Back to the question if he is sweet, I thought he really isn’t. He’s a funny guy who would laugh at you whenever you miss a step at the stairs before helping you get back up. He doesn’t know how to comfort you whenever you get sad because he’ll just teach you (he’s a teacher BTW) how you should’ve handled things instead of getting more problems by crying. He’s that kind of guy. At first, the inner child within me burst into anger because I feel like he doesn’t care at all but later on, I’ve realized that his way of showing affection is far more different to what I’ve seen on movies and what I’ve read on novels or manga. He’s the best friend who would make you laugh whenever the atmosphere gets gloomy or whenever he just feels like it and he’s the partner who would just pat you at the back and you know you already got some back up whatever battle you’re facing.

Last July 27, we celebrated our 7th year together. Yes, we’ve dated so long already and a lot of people are already asking when we’ll get married. Well honestly, both of us don’t know because we don’t have savings. We don’t have a house, not even a car. We’re just living life like it’s ours. And I don’t know where were headed. But still… we’re living. What a carefree way to say it. But yeah.

We first went to the Bishop’s House near the Saint Augustine Metropolitan Cathedral to visit my uncle who’s a priest as he asked us some errands to do.

We didn’t take our time there for so long as my uncle was having a meeting at that time so we went to SM CDO Downtown Premiere earlier from what we’ve planned so we watched not a love story nor a horror movie but our much awaited favorite, Cars 3. We we’re supposed to watch it on the second screening but because we arrived earlier, we’re able to watch it on the first.

Life Journal: A New Year

How’s the first week of your 2017? Mine was definitely great and I pray it’s a good sign for my year to be awesome! 😊

As a tradition, me and my family goes to my grandmother’s house to welcome the new year, same goes to my cousins, aunts and uncles.

As you can see, we’re a huge, wacky, healthy and happy family. However, we’re incomplete that time.

New Year’s Day was also my father’s birthday. It’s so amazing to have everyone celebrate his birthday plus he gets free fireworks from everybody 😂

Travel Journal: Cebu (Day 4)

It was the day I’ve always been waiting for ever since we arrived at Cebu. It was never on our itinerary since I know it would be a long ride and maybe it would cost much. But luckily, Daddy Bench gladly offered. To spill the beans, what I’m talking about is our trip to Oslob where the place was famous to tourists because of the whale shark watching which the locals were proud of.

We were supposed to depart at 5 in the morning however, Daddy Bench had a mass so we end up leaving the convent around 8AM.

The one who’s really excited was Jason because it was one of his dream to visit the place (aside munching burgers at Burger King lol 😂). When I told him about Daddy Bench’s offer, I wished I had my phone on my hand to take a photo of his face full of delight.

I knew that whale shark watching ends by noon and when my watch said it was already 10:30 and we’re still a few miles away, I started to panic but still we managed to arrive at 11 and started to change and attend their briefing right away.

Life Journal: Sunday Getaway at Ultra Winds

Hello! Before I continue blogging my awesome trip in Cebu, I’ll share my chill and fun-filled Sunday getaway with my college buddies at Ultra Winds ❤

Last Sunday, November 13, 2016, I was supposed to finish my shift at 7 in the morning however we got another power interruption that allowed me to prepare earlier for our much awaited outing. Yeah, we’ve been planning to get together since forever. However, life has come to all of us and we just can’t find a schedule that fits for everyone and only 5 of us ended up gathering together, Jason and I and my girls, Pearly, Ate Kams and Kathleen.

Our meeting place was at Jollibee near Xavier University to have breakfast and later on, we grabbed a taxi that gave us a drive all the way to Ultra Winds at an affordable rate. The driver even offered to pick us up after we’re done. Of course, we grabbed the opportunity to avoid hassle of waiting a ride to go back home.

From left to right: Jason, me, Ate Kameko, Kathleen and Pearly


It looks pretty cool, right? Entrance fee for the pool is only 250php with free snacks! That made our day more fun 😂

Life Journal: In a Whim

It’s been a while again. Now I can really say that I am a terrible, terrible blogger. I don’t like it either. Zzzz. My laptop is just very sickly and I am so poor to buy a new one. A lot has happened actually, for the past few months, since my last update was still in August *cries*

Well, based on my title, it really seem like my life has been like a roller coaster. A lot happened, both good and bad but I can say I am still happy and blessed.

I’ve mentioned before that I have two jobs but I stopped for the other one since my boss told me he’d just contact me whenever the business is busy. It was so sudden but I still love it anyway. I spend more time at home and with my parents. I got more time with Jason too. Usually, I go to his school and wait for him there. I’ve even met some of his students and they were really friendly to me.

Jason had his final walk last September 14, 2016 as the Mr. ICI 2015. I just can’t help but go fangirling over him, well generally I am the President of his fan club *lol*. I’ve heard a lot of students behind my back saying he’s so handsome and great, I really can’t stop being proud of him.

Sorry for the very pixelated photo. I am so far from the stage and I am only using my cellphone. The power of zoom!

See, he’s prettier than me!

Stopping on one of my jobs may seem bad but for me, it’s not, at all. I’ve actually spent more time with my friends as well. And I’ve treated my college buddies at Nic’s Pizza Baguettes a week before my birthday. We had fun playing Jenga and their pizza was fantastic!
