Wanting to skip the day…

I’ve been in front of the computer since 8:30am… it’s almost 10am… and it’s not exactly very stimulating.  I’m waiting for my assignment to arrive in my email, because I applied for a homebased writing job.  I’m supposed to start today at 9am, but apparently, for some reason, I don’t have my assignment yet.  So now I don’t know if I still am supposed to wait for it or just turn off this pc and doze off to sleep again.

Since last night, I’ve been thinking about this day.  Even told my boyfriend that I sooo wanted to skip this day.  Why?  Because I had already pre-empted it to be a boring day because I’d have to stay at home the whole day!  You see, I’m part-time already at Integrow and I have Mondays and Fridays off.  Waahh… and I’m not used to being idle anymore… even just for one day.

Oh well… cheers to me and my new job that’s letting me bum in front of the pc at 8:30am.


art lover

2 years ago, I chanced upon this website containing portfolios of sorts: cartoon, comic, conceptual, fashion (my favorite would be the last)… every time I visited this site, I’d spend at least an hour just feasting on oh-so-nice illustrations. I am an art lover and a self-confessed frustrated artist, just so you know.

Here are some of my favorites:

ooh lala  hot driver )parisian)sassy

I’m back… really now.

Now I’m really back. Wow I missed writing in my blog! I remember not skipping a day to post something in it, even if it was just nothing. Oh well, here I am now again bringing you whatever stuff that comes in my head and jumps out of my heart…
This is a pic taken on the night after our first play date last Feb 28. This is my sister Chat, who was my co-actor in the musical “The Filipino Dream”… now please don’t wonder why we have seemingly heavy makeup (itchy!).
For now, I won’t be writing a whole post yet… just an FYI that I’m back (if there really are avid readers of my blog hahaha)… or maybe I’m just saying this to myself. Hehe. See ya!


My Fabulous Comeback

After months of being unable to update my fabulous blog, here I am again fabulously bringing to you fabulous news about my fabulous twin nieces 🙂 Go figure why this is ‘My Fabulous Comeback’.
God is just really so good for adding to our family two very beautiful babies: Ma. Christiana Annalise and Ma. Christiana Therese. These precious little ones are gifts from above. And they have the weirdest birth story! Annalise was born in the birthing clinic at our church in Mandaluyong, while Therese was born in Medical City in Pasig. Yes, these twins have separate birth places! But still, they are one in heart.
I just love them so much! As early as (almost) 2 months old, their own personalities are being revealed already. But still, they are loved equally. The photo below shows how Annalise is the funny and outgoing one, and how Therese is the more feminine type. Can you guess who is who? 😉


To All The Fabulous Single Girls

I received this message from a good friend. Beautiful words and substance. It is for every single girl to realize the REAL reason why she’s single.

Women are like apples on a tree. The best ones are at the top. Men don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren’t good but easy. So the apples on top think something is wrong with them when in reality, they are amazing! They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

For now, just aim to always be the reddest and juiciest apple you could ever be. Stay beautiful! Make yourself worthy to be climbed all the way for. *wink* *wink*


What Might Have Been

I know it is never healthy to think of the “what ifs” of life, but sometimes you can’t help but think of what could have happened if you were five minutes earlier in a meeting or if your bestfriend gave you a teddy bear instead of a Barbie doll on your 10th birthday or if you had chosen to date your more attractive suitor. It’s sometimes fun to look back and be amazed at the realization that our life depends on the decisions that we make.
Here are my what-might-have-beens…

  1. If I didn’t study in Miriam, I would have studied in an equally good school that is far.
  2. If I pursued my ballet classes, I would have reached the toe-shoes level but most probably have quit ballet by now.
  3. If my Mama did not leave for the US, I would be happier.
  4. If I had the money, I would have at least a pair of Jimmy Choos.
  5. If I did not have my hair curled, I would not love my hair now.
  6. If I was not born, you would not be reading this fab blog.

Okay I have to stop here. I just realized how hard it is for me to go back, try to hold on to what’s been done, and think of what could have been if this happened or not. Waaahh… labo. The feeling sucks. I guess Jonathan Larson in his musical “Rent” (which is a favorite) is right in saying: “Forget regret… or life is yours to miss… No other course, no other way… no day but today.” I guess there’s no need to hold on to the past. No need.


On Being a Bum

Whoa. It’s been almost a week since my last post. Am I running out of things to say? Nah… I will never run out. Can’t afford to run out. I guess it’s just been a busy week and I deliberately did not make time to think, reflect, and write (or in this case, to blog).

It’s good to keep yourself busy. Great, actually. It’s funny how I find myself saying this because I used to tell myself how fun and lovely it is to be a bum. You know, just sitting and lounging on the couch with the remote control on your hand, and a bag of potato chips on the other–not worrying about anything at all. It’s just you and your lazy self wasting time… even until the wee hours of the morning.

I used to see how fun and lovely it is until I experienced too much of it. The last days of my very hectic and almost-no-rest semester in 4th year college were excited to see the scene of the cozy and inviting couch I could lounge in for days and weeks. I yearned so much for total rest and official “bum-ness”. I did satisfy that yearning. Too much satisfaction, actually, that it almost sickened me. Yes, the having-nothing-to-do in the cozy and inviting couch made me happy on the first days and weeks… but it almost killed me of boredom and loneliness. I realized that being too much of a bum will make you not just bored and lonely, but also stupid. In Filipino terms, “nakakabobo”.

And who would want a boring, lonely, and stupid life? Not me, definitely. Yes, it is good to be idle sometimes–but not always. In fact, we were not created to be idle at all. We were shaped to be moving and working in every way we can: eating, dancing, writing, teaching, walking, playing, swimming, walking our dog… we were created to do all these things. Rest is necessary, definitely and absolutely, but life is not all rest. Rest can never exist without work. And therefore if we want rest and idleness, we must see ourselves working first.

After all, we don’t want to be bored, lonely, and stupid. Well, if you do, then you don’t know what life is really all about. Whether we like it or not, our keeping ourselves busy is what makes us truly alive and happy. Whatever it is that you do, how you value work reflects how you value life.
