Valentine’s Day

I don’t want to sound bitter, but I’m one of those who have not celebrated Valentine’s – mostly by choice. For someone who had  been in a relationship for more than a decade, it’s kind of unbelievable.  But it’s true, I have never celebrated Valentine’s Day.  I’m one of those who avoid stereotypes and find […]

Random Writing: The Princess

Honestly, when it comes to stories, I don’t like princesses being rescued.  It’s stereotypical.  Damsel in distress type of stories.  That’s kind of boring. I like an orphan boy who discovered he can draw realistically that he was given a magic paint brush to make everything he draw come to life. I like a dragon who […]

The car with ribbons

My friend and I were walking one day on the beach towards a restaurant when we saw a parked car with tons of ribbons on it.  He then said “oh, you shouldn’t have..” At first, I was clueless as to what he was saying. But I already saw the car. When I finally got it, I asked “you thought […]

Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I honestly don’t know what to say and where to start.  So I thought, I’ll just write down what I’m grateful for, that happened in 2016. 2016 had been a trying time for me.  True to the saying “when it rains, it pours”… I can’t really explain or discuss further what it is, […]

31 Things Girls Wish Guys Knew

Originally posted on Enough:
Stop making fun of girls’ bodies. You’re no Calvin Klein model and we are not Victoria’s Secret models. And this goes for talking about other girls…not just us. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. When pursuing a girl, seriously take things slow, but always show interest in her (and only her).…

Stuttering

I know I blab a lot.  And sometimes I don’t make any sense.  But this is a whole new level. For a grown-ass woman such as myself, I cannot believe I still act like a love-struck teenager with a crush when I talk to a guy –  okay, so maybe I like him a little. […]

Isolation

There is peace is solidarity (sometimes).  No man is an island.  Etc. Lately I find myself wanting to be alone most of the time.  I sensed that it’s more because I’m lazy and I don’t really like going out.  But even when I’m surrounded with friends and people I know would accept me, I still […]

Am I gibberish?

I don’t know if people have trouble hearing me or am I eating my words or plainly gibberish but I’ve been asked several times to repeat myself.  And I’m annoyed! I don’t really like repeating myself, especially when I’ve already said too much. Have I made wrong references or I didn’t refer to anything?  Of course, […]

After being on hiatus

It has been weeks since I’ve posted.  Thanks to those who have been visiting my site, even when I’m not around. I don’t really write regularly.  And often, whenever I’m on holiday, I don’t post anything… at all. I’ve been too busy with stuff I needed to do.  Then, sorting problems and finding solutions.  Then, […]

English pa more…

Hindi ko ma-gets yung expression na “pa more” until I arrived. Few days into my vacation, I hear this expression on TV, from people I talk to, my cousins, etc. I guess this is a compliment?! I remembered a friend of mine said “sarcasm: either you get it or you don’t”. Is this sarcasm or […]

One at a time

Again, my OCD kicked in and I feel overwhelmed.  I have written down all of the things I have to do before my leave and during my leave (yup, it has come to it!).  My obsession on doing things a certain way has gotten into me.  I don’t know where to start.  I have prioritized […]

Burned out! (Part 2)

Now that I’m in a holiday mood and in my burned out phase, mixed with starvation (because it’s Ramadan), I have no tolerance for bullsh*t!  I just had it and I really need a holiday. Just a few minutes ago, one of my colleagues was giving me an earful… and I, in response, gave him […]
