On taxi drivers rejecting passengers, I think they have the right to reject you if alam nila na lugi sila sa area ng destination mo. If the driver rejects you, may reason kung bakit siya namimili ng pasahero. Either time na ng boundary niya or masyadong malayo and malabo na chance niya na may pasahero pabalik sa area niya. Yung iba kasi kung makasigaw kay Manong akala mo kung sino.
An outpour of blessings welcomed my April and I’m so blessed to have all the people around me right now.
I now realized how difficulties taught me lessons and why it led me to this very moment. It’s as if these things are bound to happen. Truly, God has bigger plans for us than we have for ourselves.
I seldom go to church but I prayed solemnly every night to give thanks and ask for guidance. Undoubtedly, He never fails. With unwavering determination and guidance from above, I believe there’s no mountain high enough! :)
No amount of coffee can cure the loneliness I feel. I know things happen for a reason.. I just hope everything will fall into place :(
Went to Tacloban, Zamboanga and Puerto Galera last week.
… But I’d rather tell stories of Puerto Galera only.
Had a massive LSS of Daniel Padilla’s “Naseyo Na Eng Lehet?!! Minemehel Kitang Tapat!!” and played Maroon 5’s Daylight 1 X Thousand
Our “study group” learned the different techniques of KP, met Mang K and ate fortune candies during breakfast. How lovely.
Sang “Maybe It’s Maybelline” and traumatic break-up songs you hear on karaoke
Did I mention I cleaned a bathroom full friend’s intestinal eject matter?!! And this happened twice in the span of 2 weeks.
Paid Php 165 for a bowl of lugaw!!!!!
Had slight hang-over after our group (6 girls and a boy) finished 3 liters of Empi Lights and each bottle of RH. Tolerance level’s getting stronger guyssz *~Congtratulations!!*~
I managed to stay sane whilst almost everyone’s having their own tantrums! What an achievement!!!
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.” —Excerpt from The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Neibuhr

Bago ko pa man makalimutan ang mga happenings ng bawat taon, I’m keeping an annual photo gallery of highlights each month. I would like to thank all the people who made memories with me this year.
2012 is my most-traveled year so far, traversing from North to South. Since highschool, ang dream ko lang naman talaga mapuntahan ay Baguio and I’ve been there twice this year. In a nutshell, outpouring blessings came rushing more than I expect. And I’m forever grateful for those people who gave me an opportunity to work with them and helped me overcome some of my “quarter-life” crisis. I wouldn’t mention their names because they’re not on Tumblr and may not read this LOL. But seriously, thank you for a great year. It’s been a learning process and until now I’m still amazed.
Happy New Year! May all the desires of our hearts come true!
See you in 2013! Cheers!
Want to view my photo gallery last 2011? Click here! Because I’m papansin like that. Haha
January: Bacolod + Davao trip
First time to try zipline and we visited crocodile farm.
February: Subic + Baguio trip
Believe it or not, first time kong pumunta ng Baguio! I’ve been to Baguio twice this year. Achievement!
March: Cisco Innovate
Naalala ko ang Divisoria adventure namin ni Kuya Harry. Kinabukasan, nagkasakit siya. Aguy! Pero sobrang worth it!
April: Churvivors Biglaang Lakad
Ito yung mga panahong sa hindi malaman dahilan laging available ang lahat. Trinoma all the time, errday.
May: CDO + Iloilo + Boracay trip
Then I met my.. boytoy. Echos! Mas mahaba pa tinulog ko sa Boracay sa sobrang antok. Slept at 6pm then nagising na ako 8am kinabukasan. Hindi na nakalabas nung gabi, goodness!
We also went to CDO sa Tent City. Nakita namin yung kalagayan ng mga tao dun and listened to stories ng survivors.. sobrang heartbreaking.
This month ko nakita ang HS friends after 3 years then Subic road trip for Mela’s birthday all in one day. 12 midnight alis from Manila to Subic. Anyare? 4am nakarating then umalis din ng 2pm. Also, I had the worst hang-over of my life. NLEX scene remember?!
June: Cebu trip
Learned many things especially sa ingress. Hats off sa partner during the event! I also had the chance to watch Pedicab live sa free event ng ABS-CBN. But the most important thing I learned is to keep the evaluation forms. My bad!
July: Aquatico, Batangas Planning
One of the most memorable out-of-town trips: Sobrang saya nung gabi na. Videoke until 3am! Beat that!
August: Marketing Kids
Regular visit from Marketing Kids! Photo shoot and food trip kapag nandyan sila. Sobrang saya!
September: Papayat 2012 aka Nestle Dancing Program & Running ala Ayala Triangle starring Ivy & Janice
Okay so may time na
October: Davao trip
2nd time in Davao this year but 1st time sa Samal Island with Ms. Tine and family. Ganda ng beach nila though wala masyado shore pero crystal clear ang tubig and winner and food! Legit vinta ang peg!
November: Ivy + Carla
Month kung kelan lumipat si Carla sa apartment ko. More sisterly
December: Eugenio Reunion at Quezon
Lola’s Birthday Celebration slash Eugenio Reunion ang peg. Sobrang saya! Ang inyong lingkod ang host ng 2 programs last Dec 25. May mga pa-games and may performance every family. FYI meron lang naman 10 anak si Lola kaya 10 silang magkakapatid nina Mama. Big happy family!!! Then umakyat kami ng bundok ng barefoot then buwis buhay sa bangin. Totally unforgettable!
It’s been a while since I posted an update except for the constant photos appearing from Instagram. Btw, just so you know I bought a second-hand iPhone somewhere in Guadalupe because I can’t afford to buy brand new nor apply for a monthly plan yet. I still have daughter duties. The perks of independence! After my Blackberry’s sad death last summer, I need a phone capable of receiving email, tweets, YouTube surfing — not just TV screening (I am talking to you my dear, Cherry Mobile.)
I’ve gone through a lot of questions, answers and more questions these past weeks about quarter life crisis-related stuff aka career. I opted not to over think and just let things happen. Go with the flow and be open to everything. After reading Michael Carandang’s feature in Status magazine tonight, my admiration of doing what I think is right and what I enjoy/love became more intense. I recommend you read his story!
I cannot perpetually procrastinate just because I am not happy for like.. 30 mins and then I’m okay afterwards. I need more mature and long term thinking ye know. But seriously, I am more thankful for quite sometime and learned to accept the fact that some things are out of my control (if I think I’ve tried enough — hard enough). It’s like ‘looking in eye of the problem”. There’s no way I can solve problems if I just escape from them. The problem’s still there but you.. you go out of your field trying to be the best version of your self and when problems rise again.. you escape? Nothing was solved, nothing mattered. These are some of the most motivational words I got from my colleagues.
In a nutshell, I am staying where I am because I still love what I do, passion’s still there plus being with the best people in the industry so hang on self you’re still on the running towards becoming America’s Next Top Model! I kid.
