My Bucket List of Love

My Bucket List of Love

1. Bring him home to your parents and tell them: “He’s my boyfriend”.
2. Bring him home, and tell your parents: “he’s gonna sleep over.” [Grin] haha!
3. Eat his unusual [for you] favorite street food.
4. Date without spending too much money. [walking by the bay, window shopping, eating at carinderia’s]
5. Movie date – without a single centavo spent! [just watch a movie together at home]
6. Spending time together, laughing, insulting each other, just like a brother and a sister would do, and sharing your never ending life stories.
7. Take him with you, to your family gatherings, dinners and visits. Well, of course with permission from your father. [let’s say your father is really a traditional type, like mine, so good luck with that! But for me, i just waited for the right time… right time that he asked me to have him join the party! haha!]
8. Meet his parents & siblings. [ready or not here i am! (My armpits are sweating! gulp!)]
9. Add them on facebook =).
10. Your or His Mother telling you/him, how naughty you are/he is, as a little kid. [This is the most exciting part for me!]
11. Date with his sister. [Bond together, and 100% sure, you’ll know more about his past! haha! well, only if you are interested! just a simple reminder, anything you know about his past, specially if it is on the bad side, JUST LEAVE IT IN THE PAST! it’s not like, his doing that to you now… if he does, maybe, it’s time to think about your relationship with him].
12. Go on in a family outing together, whether his or yours. This is the coolest way to spend time together! And I promise, this will be your happiest moment ever! and so does a lot of things to come… ha! ha!
13. Fight over something silly. [Hi!Hi! guilty as charge!]
14. Be each other’s number 1 fan!
15. Be a good influence! Help each other to be the best, always.
16. lessen your expectations, to avoid further misunderstandings.
17. Shoulda, woulda, coulda: No! Na-Ah! Just enjoy and live in the present, be contented with what is now and not what should have or could have been.
19. Lower down your ego.
20. Celebrate Monthsary. No not the expensive way… exchanging special notes, simple greetings, and if you have money, but it’s not mandatory, buy a gift. 🙂
21. Celebrate Anniversaries. Nothing is more special than reaching your first year together and then more anniversaries, but of course, just right ahead, be ready for real challenge.
22. Dance, sing and travel together. Nothing is sweeter than doing your hobbies together and being able to do the things you love most.
24. Meet the Parents. I mean, both parents will meet and both of you needs to be there too, and witness the clash of the titans, LIVE! just kidding! Haha! Yikes! AWKWARD! [yeah i know, but it will all be worth it somehow…not all families are hard to blend in… And I haven’t done this though, but in God’s time… it will happen.]
25. And Lastly, Always say I LOVE YOU & I MISS YOU. It never get’s old. [for me, kinikilig pa din ako, whenever i hear him say these words].

2013 – 2014 and still inlove and happy! 🙂


Sweet Notings

I am thinking and widely awake
while i dream of you, lying down beside me.
And as i go to sleep, pictures of you
are scattered in my mind!

I dream of you hugging me tightly,
kissing my forehead, while I,
on the other hand, listen to your breathing,
and hear your heartbeat thumping.

I do wish everynight, that you are beside me.
But though we’re apart,
Please always keep me in your heart,
and in your mind, for I will always do.

Let’s be Strong for each other,
Faith, Love and Prayers…
No matter what, everything will be Okay,
Just hang on, and I’ll always STICK AROUND.

Let’s work together,
that may all challenges that may come upon us,
will be conquered, That our journey together,
will be full of LOVE, kindness and happiness.

Let’s take care of each other,
And be supportive as we can be…
Keep achieving our goals
fighting for each other and loving one another.

I love you and I miss you dearly…

I am the new woman, I am a born fighter. You can bend me sometimes for your selfish motives but you can never break me because I am invincible.
I am not jealous of anyone, because I am very confident about my own capabilities.

I will not allow anyone to manipulate me or be little my soul with deceitful conduct.
I will not allow anyone to define or change me because I am Free Spirited, and I have my own unique personality!
I know how to fight back and survive on my own terms.
If I am shattered, I come back even stronger because I am determined to be a survivor and not a victim.
Each day the challenges of life deepen the conviction in my soul & make me more determined to achieve my goals.

I am the new woman!

I am the New Woman

May 27, 2013 – It must be because it’s my birthday?! OR, I was just really unlucky?!

So today is my birthday, i was excited to go to work, and open my FB… but then….

As I was on my way to work this morning, and as i was riding a jeepeney along Pedro Gil, a man hopped on with his rag, crawling his way while wiping everyone’s feet, including mine. And after doing so, he opened his right hand and asked for alms.

It's more fun in the Philippines

My ride going to my work – not exactly, but this is the kind of jeepney i rode this morning!

When nobody gave him anything, and as i saw their faces, and everyone’s reaction, like as if, he is a criminal or something, i was observing the man, and i can definitely see that he is really disappointed & pissed. And i’m not gonna deny, I felt kinda threatened a lil’ bit too, and so, i grab my bag tightly, gave him a way, since he is about to go down, i was thinking that he might do something cruel to someone, by the way he move, but before he went down, he looked at me and asked for money as well.

I looked at him, and shook my head, that unfortunately I have nothing to give to him as well. And I must be the most unluckiest person in that jeepney! As the man step his way out, he STOMPED at my feet so HARD… and to my surprise, I DIDN’T FEEL ANY PAIN AT ALL! I had a VERY VERY LATE REACTION with what he did, I must stunned, by what just happened, and my intuition was then again right. He did something cruel, but it was ON ME! Probably because it is my birthday today?! How can the guy knows that?! ha! ha! “Happy 25th Cza!” Anyways, as I looked at him, thinking he might not mean to step on my foot, but when he looked back at me, that’s the only time i realized he is definitely MAD. I felt sad for him, and i didn’t feel angry at all.

So i just smiled, laughed it out inside my head, while everybody’s concerned about my feet, and i was like, “It’s nothing. Because, him, stomping on my feet is nothing compare to what kind of pain he is going through right now.” Because, come to think of it that some people must have trampled with his personality, reviled him, and stomped his ego as well.

So I do realized, at that point that, he acted based on his emotion. His hurt, no one gave importance to him, not even I, [so i probably deserve it too]. I do understand where the man is coming from, it must be very difficult for him to survive as well, because he is being judge by EVERYONE. We don’t know the story of the guy, we don’t know where he really came from… and we don’t know what happened to him.

Sino ba nmn di mababaliw sa GUTOM?! Sino din ba nmn ang hinde mag aalburoto pag gutom ka na, ala ka pang pera, tapos manghinge ka, ala pang magbibigay?! I was just thankful that he only stomped at my feet, and gave me something to think about and write about. And he made me realize that PAIN IS INEVITABLE, but it will mold you into a better person one day, and Stomping on my feet and i, feeling no pain at all just made me think that even other people may hurt me, stomp at my ego, or judge me, I will not be knocked down nor stay low! I will stand up again and do it again if i must and i will be BETTER! And i will prove you i am NOT who you think i am!

Happy 25th Birthday!

Happy 25th Birthday!
