Thank you 2010!

2010... I am about to bid goodbye to you in a few minutes. And I would like to tell you something before you actually bid goodbye to all of us.

Thank you 2010. You have been an amazing year. A year of travels with family, friends and with Arvic. I appreciate that a lot. I love sharing travel memories with people I love. They will forever remain priceless to me. The US was great by the way, I shall go back there and see more of it. I promise! :)

Thank you 2010. You taught me to be patient. I was not working for almost the whole half end-part of the year. Sure, I became a little bit uneasy already and impatient but the 'time-off' gave me my much-needed break to reflect back on what I really want in life and where I want to go. I wanted to leave the Philippines for greener pastures elsewhere but then realized that maybe I'm still not meant to be away from family and friends. I guess, there's still a lot to be done here. And a whole lot more to enjoy. ;)

Thank you 2010. I learned more about being in a relationship. Sure this year was a little bit bumpy compared to previous years but the lessons I learn in each bumpy ride you let me in are precious. I learned more about Arvic and most especially about me. I know we still have a long way to go but I sure am glad I have him in my life. This partnership will go places.. I just know it! ;)

Thank you 2010. Friendships grew even stronger during this year. I appreciate my true friends more and more each year. A lot of milestones were met this year like the 10-year mark with my college friends.. and even more years with my highschool friends. You also made me realize that indeed true friendships can stem from being workmates. I am really lucky to have these people in my life.


Thank you 2010, you leave me with a more hopeful heart. I know that 2011 will be great but I shall always remember you as the year that I learned a lot from.

CHEERS!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!

Another One Just Got Hitched

Right after Christmas, I was really busy. Why? Because one of my bestfriend got married! :)

What I love about weddings of really close friends... it instantly becomes a reunion!

 

It was super fun to see people dress-up and suit-up for a change :) I missed these wacky guys.

Plus... kinilig ako kasi ang gwapo ng boyfriend ko... *kilig*


Congratulations to my dear dear bestfriend... Jing and BJ! Love love love!


CARPE DIEM!

Merry Christmas!

It's Christmas eve tomorrow already. And when I reflect back to the year that was (and still is), I am overwhelmed with all the blessings I received. So what I want to give back to the universe is the same love it has showered me not just this Christmas season but all throughout the whole year.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

from Me and Arvic,


from Me and my family,

 
Feel the love.. Spread the love! :)

Another First

This last Boracay trip was an adventure for me. I did another 'first'. And I'm glad I had the courage to do this. Usually kasi I excuse myself from extreme activities. But this one was just to good to say no to.

We did this! Helmet Diiiiiiive!


First there was an orientation. We were told about the sign language we're required to use once we're underwater. The signs would inform our instructor if we're "okay", "not good", "wants to go up already", "needs to pinch nose for equalizing" *I wish I could post pics of the me doing the signs.*  Haha!

Them doing the "okay" sign...


Next, we needed to sign-up...


Then gear up!


Then off to the bottom of the ocean we go. Well more of 10-15 ft lang naman.. not really that deep. :P

My turn!

 
Underwater shots:





Saya! Sarap ulitin. :)

Weddings

It has been a crazy and hectic December. First, there was the Boracay trip with Arvic's family. Then his brother's wedding. Then my bestfriend's wedding. Add all of that to the Holiday craze as well. But who am I to complain? It's all about love love love and fun fun fun! I'll start posting pics in my FB account. For now, this is what I got for you.


Keep you guys posted :)

IKEA!

During one of my trips to Singapore. We decided to meet up with a friend and have dinner at Ikea. :)



I was honestly surprised to see lots of people having dinner there. Once we lined up for food.. it was evident why.




We had coupons care of our friend who was a member of Ikea. :) We had free chicken wings!!! One of their best sellers.. Yum!

Kainan naaaaaa...

More than 10 years

I had my share of friendships gone wrong. Fate gave me the chance to experience meeting bad people along the way. Such experience taught me to surround myself with people I really connect with and that trust earned is much more promising than trust freely given.

I have been friends with my highschool barkada for more than 10 years already. We lost a few 'members' along the way for different reasons. I'm glad to say that those who stayed are the best bunch there is. :)


A number tried their luck in other countries. While some are busy with their families and babies. We all have our own lives to live but once given the chance to reunite, we do take the time to catch up and laugh. :)

The most beautiful discovery true friends can make is that they can grow separately without growing apart

Merry Christmas from us! :)

Undas 2010

This year's Undas was different from the number of Undas we experienced in the past. There were less people in the cemetery, less traffic on our way home to the province, and less children making candle balls. Oh how we've grown and changed.

We went there pretty early to avoid the afternoon heat. Placed the flowers we brought, lit candles and prayed.


We went back in the late afternoon and waited for the bishop to bless our departed loved ones.







Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

Friendster

I was planning on deleting my friendster account already. For old times sake, I revisited the testimonials page.. and voila. I saw this... A testimonial from him.

Cza... My Darling, My Angel, My Dear, My Lady, My Sweetheart, My Bestfriend, My First Thought when I wake up, My Dreamgirl, My Last Thought before I sleep, My partner in adventures, My Addiction, My Fellow Freak, My Sweetness, My Weakness, My Inspiration, My Hugs, My Kisses, My Love... Girl whose captured my heart...

You bring out the Best, the Mushiness and the Cheesyness in me. You constantly Surprise me, Amaze me and put a Smile in my face. You make me want to sweep you off your feet every single time. And your the only one who I'll write something these cheesy for and post it for the whole world to read... :)

Awwww.. <3. Wala pa ata kaming 1 month nyan. Hahaha!

So I visited his page and saw my testimonial for him.

He's my happy thought, my answered prayer, my head cheerleader, my addiction, my good karma, my fellow freak, my breakfastmate, my moviebuddy, my fellow mass-goer, my warm hug, my sweet kiss, my fellow-adventurer, my favorite person, my dear.

Hmmmm.. parang nagkopyahan lang o! Hahaha! Alam ko ako yung nauna nagsulat e. But because what he wrote is longer, parang ako tuloy yung gaya gaya. Hmph! :P

Bottomline, I can't delete my Friendster account yet. I still want to reminisce.

Flowers for You

"Flowers for you, on this lovely evening
Though they have no words they share my feelings
As we walk along the avenue
Pardon me, I just can't help staring at you..."
-Each Day With You

There are girls that are really fond of flowers. There are girls that aren't. I believe I was the latter. I'd choose chocolates over flowers any given day. But spending a lot of time with Mama made me realize why some girls do love them. We went to the famous 'Dangwa' street to buy fresh flowers to bring home to Nueva Ecija and I must say seeing all those beautiful and colorful flowers definitely made me smile.


 

Close-up pics...


 Thank you Mama for making me appreciate flowers more. :P


And now, she wants me to go to flower arrangement class with her. Let's see what happens.. ;)
