What to Wear

I'm supposed to be sleeping at this moment since I need to wake up later at 1PM for a Weekly Ops Meeting at 4PM. However, I cannot sleep because I was pre-occupied by the thought of what to wear on my friend's wedding next month.  

She chose me as one of the Secondary Sponsors on her wedding day. Motif is Olive green (hopefully it would fit my skin tone @_@). I was browsing a wedding site earlier and found these: (my top 3 choices but I think I would really go for the first pic. LOL)




To my blogger friends, just want to get your opinions. Which one would you think will suits me? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Read Read and Read

I grew up watching TV most of the time reason why I learn fast in visuals. The only books that I got before were textbooks provided by our school. If not the textbooks, I got the books of Bob Ong. I rarely appreciate an english book. Other than that I don't have anything to read before. 

I never saw myself spending much of my time just reading. I used to get bored doing it. Now things have changed. I have read a couple of book series that I never thought I would be able to finish. Hahaha...


It started of with "Fifthy Shades of Grey". Reading the first 7 chapters of the book was fine but when I got into the 8th chapter, I stopped reading the book. This is not because I'm being "manang" but it was the description of some scenes that I was not able to digest at first. A lot of my friends encouraged me read it again. They advised me not to look at the acts itself but the characters and stories behind the act. That made me finish the book up to the last installment.


After the popular Christian Grey, another book series got me hooked again. It was the "Hush Hush" book series. I also fell in love with Patch's character as a fallen angel. I got hooked because of the twist and turns of his love story with Nora Grey who happened to be a human. 

Now I'm reading the first book of the "Mortal Instruments" which is the "City of Bones". These are my next in line:


Though most of the things that I read are fictional I can still say that this is already a big improvement on my part. At least now I can read and finish a whole story unlike before. Hihihi...

The Last

                “How many have you loved?” – We might wonder the answer that we will get with this kind of question. Wong Fu Production made a short film about this question – to speak to the younger and older viewers. This was also made especially to those people who finally found THE ONE.

                Watch this heart-wrenching short film. You might also get the answers to these questions - Who did you love? What did you love? When? Where? Why?


                  It feels great to gone through a journey that is full of emotional pain, heartache and to appreciate the one that you are with is the person that personifies all that you needed and looked for in the past.

Reunited


I got so excited when my friend Apple informed me of the plan – to set our monthly dates. It’s been a while since I last talk and see them that’s why when I heard of the plan, I immediately sent them my schedule so we can figure out which will be the best date to meet. 

We set our date last January 13 in Trinoma. We don’t really have a reservation or a specific activity on that day. It just turned out to be a spontaneous lunch date with my beloved friends.

Since we cannot find any place which is affordable and can easily serve the food (we are so famished that time!), we decided to dine in at Tempura.

Karen, Me, Apple and Peace
 (Ang gaganda lang ng mga ngiti pero gutom na kami nyan. HAHAHA!). After our tempura food trip, we decided to continue our never ending story in Mary Grace. Each of us ordered a slice of cake. 


It's really nice to be surrounded by good friends. Though we seldom see each other, it didn't really make us feel that we haven't seen each other for a very long time. The warmth and care are still the same. I am just so lucky to find my precious gifts. 

9 years of friendship and still counting :)

Epic Wedding Speech

I just watched a video in YouTube this morning. This video put me into tears while watching it. I would like to share this to you guys especially to those who are about to say their “I do”.

It’s been a year…



Same day last year, I was weary and lost. I never thought that I will be able to survive that very moment. I thought I’ll be losing my sanity. I was completely heartbroken. I didn't know that from that day on, I’ll be totally free from all the pain.  I didn't know that it will be a promise of a new life. INDEED, everything happens for a reason. It’s clearer to me now why it happened and for what reason.

Now looking back to that day, I’m quite glad that I've gone through that kind of pain. It showed me that I can do more than I can think of… that I’m stronger than ever. I was delighted from the fact that I did not end up with him. (Oh THANK GOD!)

I’m declaring this day as my “Freedom Day”. My freedom from all the empty promises he made. Freedom from all the pain that he caused me…. I surrender and finally letting go for I know I have my God as my healer and my strength. 



But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Goals for 2013



I still cannot believe that it is already 2013. Time flies so fast. ^^ So let me share with you my plans for this year.

SAVE. I’m planning to save more this year and to also get another mean to earn money. The more money that I could save, the lesser the time that I need to wait to have the renovation of my new house. (I CAN DO THIS!)

HEALTHY LIVING. I want to be able to run 21K starting this year (to be more fit and to get medals. HAHAHA!). To be able to achieve the 21K, I’m planning to run at least 3x a week. I will also continue my “no rice” diet except on my “cheat days” (CHEAT DAY is a must kaya walang basagan ng trip. ^^)

CLIMBS. I had several minor climbs last year. Hopefully I will be able to conquer major climbs this year. Mt. Pulag is one on my list. Hope to save for my mountaineering gears too.

DESTINATIONS. I still wanna explore our country. My friends and I will be invading Mindanao soon (egzoited na ako!). I also would like to have an out of town vacation with my family this year. (sana matupad ko since ako lang solong financer for sure.) Out of the country trips are also on my list (dapat matatakan ang passport ko bago mag-expire)

PERSONAL. I started last year with “don’t dwell much on things” and now “more positive more fun” ang peg ko this year. I just wanna make this a lighter year for me pa ra naman di ako haggard looking. Who knows, I will finally meet “him” this year. 

CHARITY. Hope I will be able to do more charity works this year. Sharing is not only about the moolah that you could give but also the time and love that you could share to others.

My 2012

Year 2012 gave me a roller coaster ride. This year also has full of surprises that made me the person I am today.

Just wanna share with you how I survived this year that started with a not so good memory but ended up feeling blessed by the end of the year.

JANUARY. This is my birthday month. Initially thinking that my birthday celebration will give me a blast but it turned out to be a disaster when my Ex and I broke up. I decided not to celebrate at all but my friends were very kind enough to make me feel that I am loved by a lot of people. Thank God I have a strong support group that helped me get through this stage.


Instead of dwelling on what happened to my failed relationship, I thought of diverting my negative feelings into something positive and self-fulfilling. 

Me with Gladys and Kate in Real Life Foundation
(Grace to the Finish) My first Fun Run with my friends

FEBRUARY. With what I’ve been through for the first month of the year, I thought of giving myself a break. 2 minor climbs for this month. (and gala ko lang. HAHAHA!)

Pinatubo Trekking with Eskapaderas
Gulugod Baboy with my friends from the south

MARCH. My much awaited Run United Fun Run happened this month. I started with a 5K run 

Run United 1
I also got an invitation from my elementary teacher. He invited me to the Recognition Day and asked me to do a speech for the students. (ang serious lang ng peg ko dito. HEHEHE...)

With some of the faculty members of LTES

APRIL. Aside from Run United, I also joined Earth Run 2012 that was held in BGC. That was my first 10K run (ang lakas lang talaga ng loob ko). I was with my brother and a couple of friends in DCMi. 


I also joined another minor climb. I was with my Housies (Makati Housemates), Eskapaderas (DCMi friends) and Juxtapoz PUP. We conquered Pico de Loro. 


An angel also came this month. Kendra Thea Martin – Garcia was born last April 27. 

My Beloved Niece

MAY. Another minor climb happened this month. That time I was with my bestfriend and her friends. Time to catch up and the best way to do it was - Mountaineering in Nagsasa Cove. 



I also got the chance to see my High School friends. Define reminiscin' ^^

Rhoda, Me, Sheena, Jay and Rhomil

JUNE. This month was a  FOOD TRIP month. Since I started with my “no rice” diet I seldom eat out but when my craving strikes, cheat day comes. 



The 2nd installment of Run United 2 happened on this month. Had my first 10K run in the Run United series

Me with Bonna and Kiko

JULY. As I was fulfilling my personal desires, I also finally decided to feed my soul. At long last, I attended The Feast – the happiest place on earth. I became a regular attendee since then. 

Bro. Bo Sanchez
A friend (Cleah) also invited me to their “Pistang-bayan”. Experienced Karakol (Philippine street dance. It is being held during town and barangay fiestas in Cavite and most rural areas in here in the Philippines. This tradition started back from the Spanish Colonial Period and still being practice up to the present.) 


I got the chance to join the Milo Metro Manila Eliminations. My first ever run with a congested track (hayst... It looks like more of an ALAY-LAKAD than a fun run) 

Me with Jules and Rose (sorry it's blurry. blame my phone. HAHAHA)

AUGUST. Eskapaderas invaded Palawan. We visited The Underground River and did island hopping in El Nido. (I just wanna go back there… as in now na… as I write this portion) Hope to see this place again. My post regarding my vacation in Palawan is still pending. HAHAHA...Check this out in the next coming weeks. :D



SEPTEMBER. The 3rd installment of Run United 2012 happened this month. Ang kapal na naman ng mukha ko to do a 10K run. 

Ang labo na naman. Blame it sa kumuha ng picture ko. BWAHAHA

OCTOBER. Had my longest vacation ever (11 days out of the office. Yahoo!) But before I got my long VL, our company had the Family Day. QA, HST and L&D teamed up for the bay decoration. (BTW, got the First Place ^_^)

Ang mga feeling bata

I was so surprised when the last series of Run United 2012 happened after a month. The Run United Philippine Marathon happened while I was on leave. Buti na lang nakaabot ako sa registration :D

kami-kami pa rin.. HAHAHA

NOVEMBER. I was so stressed this month. Had to extend after my shift for the rehearsals. In the middle of super aligaga moment (because of the rehearsals of the Phantom of the Opera) I decided to visit my friends in INF. Lahat lang ng kwentuhan ay summarized. HAHAHA…

Me with Jhoera and Julius. Gusto ko lang ang peg ng kulot kong buhok :D

DECEMBER. Finally the wait is over. Aside from the 13th month pay, I was also waiting for the Year End Party 2012 to be over. (Gusto ko ng matapos ang stress ko. HAHAHA!) Though we did not get the grand prize, we enjoyed the night with our Modern Victorian Soiree theme.

The Phantom of the Opera
The QA Team
Welcome to the Christian world Kendra Thea! Kendra’s dedication happened this month too. Ang laki na ng pamangkin ko….

Me with my inaanak CJ and Pammy with Kendra

Now looking back to year 2012, I realized that I’m still lucky. I lost someone in my life but I gained a lot. I gained my self-respect, met new friends, got into a lot of places and still getting the opportunity to do what I love to do. I started the year with tears in my eyes but ended up with a full smile on my face. I am the person that I am today with what I’ve gone through in the past – STRONGER AND BOLDER :D

I also wanna thank God for guiding me and for giving me the life that I have right now. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
