Trenta

Today, I turned 30. I haven’t gotten any epiphanies, nor do I feel any more adult than I did yesterday. I still have the same worries, the same things, the same everything. Yeah, there’s not much difference… yet. Or maybe ever. *ramble* But one thing’s for sure: I am blessed. And I am grateful. Here’s […]

My 2010: Highlights and then some

I’ve been going through several drafts of this post, figuring out what to write as a year-ender. In the past, I’ve done this survey about the past year. I’ll still do that, but I wanted to do something else. I don’t know what, but I’ve been inspired by several people’s posts. There’s Kimmeh’s “first” post, […]

Mabuhay ang bagong kasal!

Last Saturday, I attended the wedding celebration of my friend Fristine to Alvin. There’s a lot of things unique about this wedding, not just on how it was celebrated, but also how I got acquainted with the couple. Fristine was a friend of my friend Lornadahl. I’ve never really spoken to her before, but Lorna […]

Birthday celebration in Tagaytay

It’s been a while since my mom and her siblings got together. For my mom’s birthday, Tita Ruth took us to Tagaytay. We spent the night at Tagaytay Higlands, then went around exploring various shops, restaurants and places. Family food tripAs always, it seemed like one big family food trip. We had lunch at Akasaka, […]

July starts off well

I took a leave from work yesterday so I could go to Zambales for my Lolo’s birthday. He’s turned 85, and my parents had the idea to invite his friends over for lunch. Tito Abet and I left Manila around 5:30 AM and arrived in Candelaria around 11. Amongst all my cousins and siblings, I […]

From Friday to Friday

I’ve been really lazy with blogging in past year or two. When I first started I could write about three entries a day. Now, I’m lucky if I would get in the mood to write one a week. I’ve got tons of drafts, but hardly get them posted. I must change that. For now, I’m […]

My long overdue birthday post

Two weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday. Funny, I don’t feel any different from my previous age or the ages prior. I said it to my friend, who said back, “It’ll be different when you’re thirty.” I still can’t believe I’m a year away from that, considering that I’m not really conscious about my age […]

Hello 2010

I try not to compare each year to the other, because each is unique, with all the events that happened and the people you interact with, most of all, how you were. 2009 was as interesting and exciting as the years before it. I’m thankful that we got through it. I’m thankful for my family […]

Weekend post

It’s one of those weekends where everything seemed to just fall into place. Despite the hectic-ness of it all, the oh-so-close and nearly missed times, things worked out that you couldn’t just help go “wow, thanks,” after everything. Evecar & JP’s weddingThe day finally arrived. My best friend’s older sister, whom I consider my older […]

Little things that make me happy

The long weekend was good. My sister was here, so that meant all five of us sibs were complete. Saturday, my sister and I spent some time together. We went to SM Manila to look for a gift for my best friend’s sister. I’m glad for the gift checks that I have because I didn’t […]
