Vacation 2012: Baler, Aurora (pt. 1)

After months of waiting, finally, the day has come!!!

I’ll be out of the reality by 12:30AM. Why? Three of my friends and I will be going to Baler, Aurora! This is going to be my first out-of-town trip for 2012! I actually gave up Sagada for this… I hope it’s totally worth it.

Honestly, I haven’t packed my things up yet, but I still have time tonight πŸ™‚

Note to self: Pack light.

Aside from the Genesis Joy Bus, what I’m excited about this trip is: surfingggg!!! Yes! I even bought a rash guard from Coco Cabana (SM Megamall) last night for this.

I don’t think I can do that in just an hour. But I’ll try. This photo will serve as an inspiration. Nothing is impossible πŸ˜€ I. AM. EXCITED. YES!

And since I’ll be seeing beaches again, I’d love to see the beautiful sunset while on the white sand… just like this:

I hope I can blog about this trip as soon as we get back. Sad to say, I don’t have any camera to bring (maybe I should start investing for one now), but I have Tracy (my Nokia C3-01) and I think that’s fine. Yah, Imma loser. Friends have theirs, so I guess that’ll be fine. Haha.

I’ll be taking this opportunity also to reflect… Maybe I can leave all the bad vibes there and make sure that when I come back, I’m a little better person… having a clearer mind to decide on what I want to do with and have in my life. I know this trip’s going to be awesome. I know…

PS: I’m on Facebook and Twitter fasting since Wednesday so you won’t see me updating there for 37 more days.

Valentine’s Day 2012

Dati iniisip ko pag sinabing Valentine’s Day, pakikipag-date sa boyfriend/girlfriend o mga kabarkada, paggala sa mall, pagkain sa mga restaurant… Ngayong taon, na-realize ko, I wouldn’t learn to love others kung hindi ako tinuruan ng pamilya ko lalo na ng mga magulang ko kung pano magmahal at kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng pagmamahal. Siguro eto ung first time na ginawa ko sa kanila to, pero sobrang masayang-masaya ako. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na this time, in my own special ways, hindi lang basta ibang tao ang napasaya ko, kundi ung mga taong sumusuporta sakin mula noon hanggang ngayon…

23 years old na ko pero ngayong taon lang ako na-encourage na magluto. I prepared Tuna Pasta, Breaded Chicken Fillet and Graham Cake for my loves πŸ™‚ I have not received a bouquet of flowers and a big bar of chocolates today but a “Thanks for an excellent dinner. Happy Valentine’s Day. I love you. :-*” message from my family, on behalf of my mom, is the VERY BEST gift I have received…

Sana nandito si Kuya para mas masaya :’) Miss ka na namin! :*

β€œOther things may change us, but we start and end with family.”

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all had a great day ❀

Nalaman kong hindi lang nadadaan sa materyal na bagay ang pag-alala sa mga mahal mo sa buhay. Sabi nga nila, “It’s the thought that counts.” Okay lang na hindi magarbo. Ang mahalaga, na-touch mo ung puso nila… para maramdaman nila na importante sila sayo at may nagmamahal sa kanila. When we give love, we give love. We shouldn’t expect the other person to give us the same love that we’re giving.

Nakakatuwa lang kase ang dami kong narerealize sa buhay as time goes by… :’)

Para sa family ko, family at friends ni PJ, friends ko sa Eco-DMT at OLA, classmates sa RCC, OLOPSC, UST, colleagues sa eTel, NCO at eCOM… pati sa mga guard, utility, at sa lahat-lahat ng kakilala ko na naging parte ng buhay ko… Thank you for the acceptance, tender loving care, understanding, patience, trust, friendship, life lessons, inspiration, support, realizations… for everything. I love you to bits.β™₯

Heard the 6:30PM Mass at Diocesan Shrine and Parish of Our Lady of the Abandoned in Marikina City.Β 

After the mass, I had milk tea with one of my best friends, Soph, at Zen Tea Marquinton. Tried ChocTea (Choco Milk Tea). This one’s XL for 80Php πŸ™‚

Maybe I’ll try Nai Cha next time ΓΌ

I love this bed weather but it’s Monday again tomorrow! I really hope our beds won’t be like magnets in the morning πŸ˜€

Good night β™₯

This photo was taken today around 1:30PM on February 4, 2012.

This is my mom.

The parking area was already too far from the mall so we need to ride the shuttle. We enjoyed it while eating cotton candy and sipping Coffee Jelly frap πŸ™‚
