Remember my previous post about “Facebook and living life differently?” Well, I had a 2-week-hiatus. I went to my father’s homeland in Cauayan, Negros and the following week, I was in Compostela, Cebu. Now, I’m back home with a queezy feeling of wanting to travel some more. Who would have thought that I would love to meet new people and experience new things rather than just sit on my comfy chair and type and design all day long and eat the same food and do the same things over and over again. It’s somewhat ridiculous.
Valentine’s Day was so yesterday! Boo! We had a spontaneous “Post Valentine’s Day” celebration at Le Reve Deli and Cafe a few days ago. I was with my friend, Jed, now tagged as my “Food Buddy”since we really enjoy playing the role of “Amateur Food Critics.” The both of us enjoyed each other’s company, despite being “single” and “unattached” as of the moment. Haha! Why not? At least we could talk to one another – not all alone in the corner of our rooms trying to have a conversation with the mirror for it to look like we’re having one!
Alongside the corner of Quezon-Ledesma St., stands a small coffee placeperfect for an afternoon search of inspiration. This “barely noticeable” coffee haven is my favorite spot to get a dose of caffeine and a little extra kick of motivation as well. After a tiring morning, this is in fact a fantastic escape from all the daily life drama we I seem to have. A comfortable seat near the glass window, overlooking the busy street, will really make you feel as if time (at your own pace) is relatively slowing down. Continue reading →
It’s Your birthday today, dear Jesus, and still You managed to give us the greatest gift of all – Love! Ahh, sweet LOVE.
I wonder how “cool” Jesus would be like if He lived in the 21st Century – with us of course! He must have shaved his face and put on those aviator shades and drive a sedan of His choice. He may throw the biggest party in the world to commemorate His “awesomeness” in saving us from sin. Jesus might be the “best-seller” in billboards endorsing the Holy Bible while doing his signature smile. Maybe we could ask for His autograph and tell Him how much we love Him. Just wondering, though. But it would be too cool to see him with the paparazzi or DJ-ing on famous party places. Wow. He’s the Divine Man! Continue reading →
My annual position as the “kid-who-gets-everything-she-wants-during-Christmas” slowly and uneasily started kicking me out. We sure had that glorifying place when we we’re young, right? Say around our pre-teens, perhaps? You say “Papa, I want this and that and ooh, those” and then when it’s that precious time to open the gifts, you get what you really wanted? Sheesh. And your eyes water because of sheer astonishment? Blaaah! I’m not that kid anymore! Now, I assume the role of the “present-giver” because I got my degree and all. Haha! Sour-graping much?
I used to look like this when I was a spoiled child. Just kidding. Hahaha! Continue reading →
Well, pigs don’t actually sweat. Seriously, they don’t. That’s why they are still big, fat, pigs – full of tasty, calorie-overloaded lard when eaten either grilled or fried this Holiday Season. I am really battling the build up of the pounds these days.My head is aching, like, crazy decisions – to eat or not to eat a peanut coated brownie, or how about a delicious vanilla glazed, banana-walnut cake? Sorry dear thighs. You should have me arrested for having a romantic interest with, what else? FOOD!Dammit. (Oops. It’s cursing if there’s an n lol!)
Running around the city to dissolve those adipose tissues is no use if you are tempted by the food during Christmas. Like, do you really have a choice? Continue reading →
It just sinked in that a few days from now we will be celebrating Christmas – which is a time to remember the birth of the Lord, our Savior(Who is so cool sacrificing His life for us to save us from our sins!). But then, with the integration of the Western culture, we have St. Nicholas who is popularly known as the old fat man with a white beard and gold-framed round reading glasses, has a red coat and a black belt – not the taekwondo belt, who eats cookies and milk, drives a herd of reindeer, carries our gifts inside a magical bag, and can amazingly fit in chimneys. Haha!
Why is “Ho, ho, ho!” so popular? Can’t he just say “Merry Christmas?!” Haha! just a thought. Continue reading →
