To A Decade of "Golden" Friendship

... well, almost 1 decade just a few months from now.

We became friends in a very curious way. But nevertheless, you've showed me what true friendship's about. How to fight for, cry with and go through life with a friend. I remember the "diary" we had and all the insane things we did and said back when we were younger. Oh, yeah those days. :) But not only was I blessed with a friend, I was blessed with a sister who keeps me grounded.

And on your birthday (fine, hindi ko sasabihin age mo, haha!), I just want you to know that:

I pray that you'll achieve the desires of your heart. It may not be easy getting there, but I know you can. You've always been the stronger one. Always know that I'm here for you. Cheers to our nearly 1 decade of friendship! 

PS. Ang umaway sa'yo, patay sa akin. You know that ;)

Happy Fourth

"Happy Monthsary, hon! Ay, anniversary na pala... tagal na nating 'di nagkita eh!" ~Fjordz

Every single "hirit" that comes from him becomes the funniest lines for me. Maybe I'm just "mababaw". Or maybe that's love or something. Haha! :)

Anyway, last night was yet another lovely night for me and my love. We attended the red carpet premiere of Underworld: Awakening in 3D at SM North Edsa - The Block. After which, we had a late dinner at Gerry's Grill Sky Garden.


I think it's more appropriate to say that "Time flies when you're in love". Despite the days that we had to wait for this day to be "our day" together, it was worth it. With so much stuff that we both wanted to share with each other, I literally stuttered most of the time - nabulol, nautal, na-wrong grammar, whatever.

Oo, in-love kami. Obviously. :)

And with that, thank you so much hon! Basta alam mo na 'yun. I cherish every moment that I spend with you, every laughter, every secret... everything. And I love you, always! :)

Where Will My Feet Take Me This 2012?

I'm back... Hello 2012!

For the past few days, I've been thinking of an appropriate post for the New Year but obviously I couldn't think of any. My mind just seems to be bursting with so much ideas and plans of what I want to do for this year - my career, travels, getting in touch with friends and so on...

Even at this very moment, I can't clearly sum it all up. They're pretty much jumbled in my head so far. So, my apologies if at times I might not make sense or if my rambling seems a little... random.

Anyway, I think here are some of the things I'd like to take a chance on for this year:

  1. Career change - I like my jobs, no offense. But unfortunately, I've grown tired of them and I feel that I'm being left behind already. I have to get a head start on the "right" career path because if I don't, I'd certainly regret it.
  2. Learn a new language - This was actually one of my plans for 2010 but since I did so many trainings related to my (actual, but non-practicing) profession, this one took a temporary backseat. I think I'd fancy learning either Spanish or French. Hopefully, I'd be able to do it (finally) this time around.
  3. Travel - I plan to go to at least three different places before the year ends. Domestic travels would do. :)
  4. Hobbies - Not many people know that I used to do theater and simple graphic art - ages ago. But years have gone by and I don't even know if I still know how to do it, though I'd like to pursue them at some point. From time to time, opportunities come knocking on my door but for some reason I didn't give it much attention. Maybe there's a right time for me to kind of go back to it and see where it leads. If it's all for His glory, then why not?
But aside from that, I'd like to give more time on my relationship with God through service with my new-found SFC family, my own family, my God's gift, and friends. I think I'm slowly finding solid ground with how my life has been for the past year after finishing college. I mean, I'm no longer wrapped up in this naive perspective of the world. I may have had big dreams, and mind you I still do, but I know that as long as I have these wonderful people in my life I'd be able to get by. It may not be as grand as I had planned in mind, but as Proverbs 16:9 said,

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps."

I know that the Lord's plans are greater than mine and that He's waiting for the right season to unveil greater things. I gotta learn to be patient. :)

I hope everything goes well this year. Fingers crossed!
