Sleepless Night Thoughts 5

Hello! Hello!
I have this little kind of romantic comedy story in my head. It’s about a girl who wanted to learn about herself and found a possible romance along the way. I actually was thinking to share it here but decided not to do that – it’s too cliche.
The story might have come from me being a little drama queen these past few days. I’ve been having these thoughts in my head like “What if I don’t find The One?” “What if tumanda akong dalaga?” “Lord, please kahit anak lang.” Truth hurts. I was paranoid, sorry naman, such a hopeless romantic. I truly believe that most of the people who write poems, stories, and lyrics about love are somehow hopeless romantic. So artists should be proud of it. (Oh di ba? naghahanap lang ng karamay).
Kidding aside, I’ve been so curious about love these past days. My friends, esp the one next to my station at work, are probably annoyed of me asking weird love stuff. I’m honestly in love with the idea of love, romance and relationships. But still, I’m not sure if I could handle to be in one with someone. Isn’t that odd at all?

Too fulfill my hopeless romantic moment tonight.

Let’s. Just. Go. Kiss. Someone.


Moon Over Sun

“Why is it like this?”

We were young,
Wild and free.
We fell in love right in the beginning
We blossomed to the sweetest tart human race could possibly eat.
We made promises we’re sure won’t be broken.

Then you moved away.
I had to stay.
We tried our best to communicate.
You called me in nighttime.
I called you in daylight.
But we mostly received left messages.

We lost track of each other.
“Did we just let our love be taken by time and distance?”
“Did we even call each other to say goodbye?”
Those were the things I had in my mind.

There were certain points,
we cheated on each other.
But we kept coming back together.
I said ,”I miss you.”
You replied , “I love you.”
And that made me want to fight for what we called love.

And now we’re here.
Longing for happiness we first felt 4 years ago.

“Why is it like this?”

“Isn’t this what we’ve been wishing for?”

Sleepless Night Thoughts 4

Here I am again writing because I couldn’t sleep. So #ALDUBWedding happened today. It was a dream come true of every fan of Yaya Dub and Alden to see them getting married. Who would’ve thought that simple smile from split screen would end up to this wonderful wedding. I know the wedding was scripted and all but who knows what will happen to these two actors in real life.I was laughing my ass off whenever I hear shrieks from the lolas while AlDub was swearing to their promises. And that passing out of Lola Nidora scene was infuriating. Me and my cousins were so pissed. Thank goodness, right after the commercial, Kalyeserye was back on and we have witnessed the sweetest and longest kiss of Aldub on TV (malay ba natin kung meron off-cam). We squealed with happiness. Oh boy, I almost lost my voice. That wedding was a perfect end to a simple yet wonderful roller coaster story shown on filipino TV.

You know me. I’m a movie junkie. Since I still have some time before my sleep time, I decided to look for something to watch and gave The Last Five Years a shot. At first, I was confused of its timeline. It jumped from one event to another (kinda reminded me of film Comet), but I got the hang of it later on. The characters were easy to fall in love with but of course, there were still complications which made me dislike them. There were difficulties just like any love stories. Spoiler: It was a sad ending.

My hair hates me more than I hate it. After several bleaching and dying, I can see it’s giving up on me. I’ve got it dyed blue-green, green, and then blue that turned to pastel green, then violet and now it has faded to dusty purple-pink color. And those hair colors happened in just four months. My hair is now so frizzy and dry. The ends are, well uhm, fried. I’m at the point where cutting all my hair off is the solution but I’m not going to that. I have shoulder length hair (after a little trim I did today), I can’t afford to lose my hair or else I will end up looking like a giant egg. I’m going to try my best to fix it or at least, make it look fixed. I’ve bought a bit expensive hair products – keratin-based conditioner and sulfate-free shampoo. They seem to be working but I’m still waiting for much more improvement, hopefully in the next weeks. I also learned that I have to restrain myself from washing my hair everyday. It’s a bit hard and gross for me since I have very oily hair and I happen to be living in a tropical place. Still, I gotta do it. I’m washing my hair on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Sometimes, I cheat on Fridays, too. And I have to weekly saturate my hair with coconut oil that would stay overnight. So far, my hair feels soft but still looks fried. I’m still looking for a good leave-in conditioner that would tame frizziness and good dry shampoo, or should I just use baby powder? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
So that’s it for now. I’m still not sleepy but I’m thirsty for a tea right now; that might help me fall asleep.

Did someone fart?

I’m about to watch Swiss Army Man for the second time. This movie is amazing. It teaches you about friendship, life, self worthy and everything in between. I love everything about it. “The first fart makes you laugh, the last fart makes you cry” is true. This is a real masterpiece. Very original in such weird way. Kudos to 4 Dans (Daniel Radcliffe, Paul Dano, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert). This is now my most favorite movie of all time (sorry, Dans La Maison). So let me leave this here. Fave track on this album would be the River Rocket.

If you haven’t seen this film, please please go ahead and watch it now!

Ilocos Trip

My family has annual vacation trips around the country. And this time, it’s the provinces of Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. LONG DRIVE, I know.

On 15 the of September, with no itinerary where to go and to stay, we left Valenzuela City around 5 in the morning and went straight to Malolos City to pick up my uncle and a cousin. We left at 7 o’clock and start the long drive. We passed through NLex, SCTex and TPLex. At around 11am, we made a stop in Gerona, Tarlac at Isdaan Restaurant. It’s a man-made floating restaurant that is filled with gigantic statues of buddhas, animals, and cartoon characters. Kid friendly and perfect for picture taking addicts out there.

We found a pony.

At 12:30pm, we left the resto and went back to driving. We dropped off my uncle and his daughter at an intersection (I didn’t know road names) where they will catch a bus to Baguio and then us continued the drive to Vigan, Ilocos Sur. We passed lots of road and bridge constructions. We didn’t expect we will get stuck in multiple heavy traffics going to province. Also, you’d get creeps by passing roadside cemeteries but counting graveyards is a real fun activity.

We arrived in Vigan Continue reading “Ilocos Trip”
