Women



Women of our generation have a lot of freedom unlike the tight-long-dresses, stay in the house and serve people (specifically men) years. We are given the independence we duly need, the power to speak our minds without being chastised and the chance to lead everyone to a so called “better life.”

We exude confidence (in our own ways) and at times scare men with it. We cry, yes we do, but that does not necessarily mean we are weak. I believe women become stronger with tears. We conquer our trials and tribulations with wit and with our seemingly fragile yet iron steel hearts.

We do stumble & we fall but women of our generation can get up with our head held up high. We are happy to be soiled, even if it means we break our nails (for some who has longer nails than I have =P). We are empowered when we get the chance to help others in whatever ways we can without expecting anything in return.

Women today can fight and stand up for their friends even when they have their own cross to bear. Yes, we have our own battles to fight but we dare not think that we charge alone, we have friends ready with their bows and arrows.

I salute my fellow women for their selflessness, their courage, their strength, and their undying hope and faith both in love and in life. There are a handful of women I know with such who would go the depths of hell to fight for the people they treasure the most, would face everyone with such poise and grace, and would dare cry not as a sign of fragility but openness, forgiveness, hope, love and strength.

With much love and respect to my fellow women out there. I am and will be one with you.

life's destination




Yes I am having my randomness throwback or should I say migrating my scattered blogs in here.. so just wait up for all the entries that would be moved here. haha (i blame coffee jelly grande for this tsk tsk)


date of entry: September 23, 2009 

One great movie line which basically everyone knows… “Life is a box of chocolate.. you’ll never know what you’re gonna get.”  Well I do not live in a box that one is a fact but it is true that in life you’ll never know what you’re gonna get. It’s like there will always be changes, plans that are not followed, surprises that could either be good or bad, sadness, happiness even loneliness but it is you who will determine the outcome of all these things, its you who define it. It is your perspective… not other people’s.

Our life for some is an open book, to seletected a restricted area, for others you give limited access. Mine has been like this. Well who can we blame right? We keep it this way because we know that some people will never stay for good, of course some will, some will come back but theres still uncertainty in it, some will just leave you right off without saying goodbye. We just have to make the right choices.

When we were kids we had all these dreams, what we wanted to be, who we will become and where we will be when we reach those undying dreams. These for some will be their destination. Dreams that will show us the road maps we need for life, though some streets are missing, erased road names, dark alleys, wide roads, a lot of crossroads, street lights and stop overs but we always have that destination in mind. For some they lose their ways but find it anway, for others they find it right away and for many a lot of detours along the way, changes and new destination arise. It all starts with a destination no matter which way, side or even angle you see it… and you continue on with your journey every single day.. no matter where that would be, you continue and you keep moving.

We keep pushing, we need to… if we don't, we already had given up.. and that's the street you do not want to pass… not in this lifetime maybe…

a 2007 throwback! (remembering my cousin)



This is such a throwback.. gathered dust from my old wordpress i think or multiply site. haha gonna put it up here.. =) i just remembered my cousin so best to post it up. I miss you buddy! see you when I get there and we go hangin like life is laggin.. =)
 
the past and the future
 
So its the first day of the new year. Everyone will have a list again for this year... a list of what they needed to accomplish.. what they wish to have and the likes.. I rarely do these kinda stuff.. plan... I usually get on with things... laid back and what not... well whats my past and future lets see....     
 
Past 
 
2006 was a roller coaster ride for me (even if I haven't ridden a roller coaster). Well I guess every year it is coz we never know what life's gonna bring us. A lot of things happened last year.. I lost and I gained something.        
 
What I lost...     
 
I lost one person whom was very important to me... We may never talk that much nor hang out like what we used to, but he was important. He was one of my favorites. We loved him for his character.. He struggled and lost fate, regained it but he lost the battle. I guess people will tell me again and again if I talk about him and feel sad.... that he is in the right place, a good place where he wouldn't suffer... I still have hard time believing and thinking about that. The question will always be WHY?? But we can never question Gods plan. What ever challenge he gives us should be faced with hope and faith because He knows that we can do it.. If someone like Him believes that we can do it... why cant we? So slowly I am accepting the fact that my cousin is gone.... on the happy note - ill miss your farting cousin! :)    
 
What I gained...    
 
I gained the trust of some people. People now I call friends and whom I will cherish. Its always a payment for everything when someone trusts you with their life. 
 
I gained good friends and retained them (for those who I have been friends with for a long time). It is such great feeling when you know that the people you have known sticks it with you. So thank you guys very much for everything. I gained a lot of things .... more than what I asked for this year. So having plans are just the structure of what your life is gonna be this 2007. Its the matter of how you follow it up and build something good with that structure you have.. And since its just a structure.. you can always alter some of them if they don't work. Thats how life works.. cliche ok but the only constant thing in this world is change. So we should never really be too disappointed when our plans don't work. We can always have a backup plan or a follow through for that matter. 
 
So 2007 wassup and bring it on biatch! haha

life as a mango tree...



I was able to go home yesterday with the sun setting. It was a very beautiful moment; well you can't take it away from me it’s my favorite time of the day! I have not gone home quite as early as yesterday for a long while now and made me realize a few things while I was admiring the sun and its slow descent in the horizon...

*crosses fingers and hopes that this would make sense at all* haha

Allow me to use this fruit because:
1. It’s my favorite fruit and
2. It’s my blog so you don’t have a say on it! hahaha


Life is like a mango tree.

We grow, we experience things, either the way we want to or it was shoved to us. We get fertilized by the daily dosage of life, we either get into the slow phase or we go fast-forward. We may taste sweetness even sourness in life but we continue to grow sturdy, always giving, always pleasing, always trying just like the mango tree.

The mango tree offers a lot of things to us, from the day it started its life on the ground til it grows. Sometimes it gets sick, just like we do. It bears fruit but has to allow it to go into the process, just like we have to. We can never always have the sweet mangoes, just like in life. We experience all the sweet things and as well as the sourness in it. If not prevented, the tree grows freely. Funny thing is, if we are allowed to enjoy what is offered to us and make our own mistakes, we appreciate life more – so should people examine the tree longer and understand its life so they can understand theirs? 

Of course the branches get cut; I view it as its reality check just like what we go through. Not every time we can do what we please we also have to consider everything and the people around us. But no matter what, it remains sturdy, no complains, and continues giving what it can give.


(I have to get back to work…. So im an ending this haha procrastinator that I am… i have to get back to my own “reality check”)


On one note: Life is a beautiful adventure – let us all enjoy the ride!

Til then! =)

dusting off this blog!

It's been what? 6 months since I started posting here and someone got me posting again because I needed to check hers (yeah Ms. Camile Velasco you, in case you read this!!) hahaha

Well a lot has happened in 6 months, I don't even know where to begin. Has been a roller coaster ride for me and the people around me but I am looking at it still in the most positive way I could ever do.

So what happened you may ask

After August:

- I finished my third to the last semester (and thank God I had good results)

- September came and two major typhoons hit the country leading to alarming death tolls, flooding for a few months and people losing their houses. I had to walk for 4 hours from where I got stuck to my apartment. Waist deep flood water that you don't even know where it came from. I kinda blame my professor that day, still held class and I still had to go (being a good student that I am hahaha). My sister, crazy that she was asked me to buy groceries when our help just asked for candles. So imagine me walking for 4 hours with nearly 3 kilos of groceries with me. I thank my San Miguel Beer jacket that day for being so damn waterproof and saving my phone and money from getting wet.

The Philippines was devastated, but it proved how strong we are as a nation and how charity really works! Setting aside differences and helping each other, different nations united with one goal: To help those in need.

- Hello November and December: I don't really remember what I have been doing those months but it seemed I was preoccupied with work and going out. haha

- Then we welcomed the New Year and it has now been two months since we counted 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1 and shouted HAPPY NEW YEAR! A lot has happened.. I met new friends, I enjoyed their company and talking to them. I got addicted in twitter (I blame my ex as he introduced me to it hahaha) and have met wonderful celebrities on the way.

- Today is the 2nd day of March, my birthday month, and I have counted since the clock hit 12:00MN the days when I have to experience the quarter point 1 (1/4.1) life crisis. Just kidding. =) Let see what will happen next!

Til then. =)
