2016’s Bes


With a bang if I may add. Sobrang kupal ng taon na ‘to na hanggang sa huling sandali madami siyang paandar. Pwedeng awat na, mumsh?

BUT! In fairness naman and to 2016’s defense, on a micro-level (naks micro???) it isn’t as bad as it looks. In one of my conversations with Sosep, we agreed that this year for us is pretty okay naman all things considering. It doesn’t hurt to be grateful and celebrate the good things that happened this que horror year.

So that’s what I’m going to do! Presenting my 2016’s bes(t):

1. Hello 25, it me.

aka THE ULTIMATE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP. I spent my birthday with my friends, family, and the love of my life: Jollibee.

2. Live from New York!

I’ve always wanted to fly to NYC and it felt like after THREE FAILED ATTEMPTS and countless hours of waiting at the airport, when the boarding pass was handed to me to FINALLY fly to JFK parang maiiyak yata ako bezzy kasi pakshet +19 hours ‘to of panis laway. Char.

I also got to spend time with my aunts and cousins which is pretty friggin awesome!



It’s weird that I only got to spend three days with NYC but there is still so much to see and experience! I miss it… wow clingy????? Sana makabalik ako next year! Sana marami rin akong anda!

3. Music!

My resolution for 2016 is to go out more. And go out, I did. Ika nga ng nanay ko, “SAAN NA NAMAN ANG LAMYERDA MO??”

Best pa rin ‘yung eLBindiefest kasi hindi ko kinailangang lumuwas! PLUS, my favorites/friends got to experience the LB crowd for the first time!

4. Friends!

Going out more comes with meeting new people and spending more time with the old!

5. Lucas and Tita B diaries was born!

I think we can all agree na ang tunay na ~*star*~ ng taong ito at ng buhay ko yes wow ay aking super duper cute sungit at sutil na pamangkin!

When people comment na uy ang sarap ng may bata sa bahay kasi may laruan kami. Ang totoo niyan, kaming lahat ang laruan ni Lucas. Hindi mo ‘yan mauuto. Laging may panabla hindi ka mananalo diyan!

Patay nga lang kapag in-english mo na. Ganito ‘yan:

Person: Hi Lucas, how was your day?

Lucas: I’m four!


Kung essay writing contest ‘to, talo na ako. Ayoko na mag-reflect, guys. Pagod na pagod na akong mag-isip…

Magmamahal na lang ako.


If you’re one of the reasons why 2016’s ain’t so bad, ty po! Cheers to making new friends, exploring new places, passing my comprehensive exams, graduating, and falling in love in 2017! The best is yet to come!

Luv u guys lyk a luv song!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Love


Circa 2011

This photo was taken on my 20th birthday. My friends screamed “GROUP HUG!!!” and there I was, drowning in everyone’s embraces. You can’t even see me! This is one of my favorite moments ever. I am glad (and lucky!) someone captured it for me.

On goodbyes and packing

On goodbyes:

WARNING! Feeling artista blog entry ‘to. People have been sending their love and goodbyes, I think I owe you guys an announcement. CHOS!

Nakakatawa ‘to pero mas nakakatawa na sa kada reply ko to dear friends may “hindi pa ako aalis tonight!” which is very anti-climatic. So to lessen the drama today brings, (bed weather pa naman! Let’s all focus on the cuddling with our pillows!) I’m not yet leaving tonight! I don’t know when! Surprise na lang. Or when I start getting senti again, ‘yun na ‘yung cue. For now, I’m focusing on the good things. Puma-positive ang peg! I think na-feel ni God na hindi pa ako ready. Sabi nya, “para mabawasan ang ka-emo-han nito sa katawan, i-move muna natin ng bahagya ang pag-alis ng batang ‘to.” Feeling ko lang ‘yan! Mag-iipon muna ako ng positive energy and outlook in life. ❤ And to things to look forward to! For now, naglilista palang ako ng mga taong iso-stalk sa New York.

For starters (i-todo na natin ‘to!), thank you to my former (huhu) office mates for this surprise!

I miss you guys like shet lang! ❤

To my friends who have been tweeting, BBM-ing, and texting me this morning I’m super touched! And I’m sorry for being basag trip! Hehehe.

On packing:

I’m not yet finished with my packing! Ngayon alam ko na why everyone dislikes this activity. Nakakayamot!

My babies

Actually, nakakayamot kasi hindi ko alam what books to bring. Hindi naman pwede lahat kasi may weight requirement sa baggage diba? Kahit sa hand carry. So tiis-tiis na lang! Hanggang ebook at pdf na lang muna ako for some of my babies. Or mag-ala Matilda na lang ako sa States at magbasa na lang ako sa public lib or somewhere. Sana pwede akong bayaran for doing that!


Today has been great so far! Feeling ko birthday ko! Sana sa tunay kong pag-alis ganito din! Demanding? ❤ Love you guyzz like a love song!

Have a happy Saturday, everyone! 🙂

CHOS: Thoughts on bus rides as of 07/14/12

1. There’s something about travelling at night that I like. Especially when it’s raining.

I think it has something to do with city lights. Mostly the city lights.

2. It’s not about getting in. It’s about doing your job well, continuously learning and the willingness to improve yourself.

3. Disappointment is exhausting. One can only take so much. Don’t make promises you can’t keep. Don’t say things you don’t mean.

4.  I think it’s sad when friendships fall apart. It’s sadder when it is not caused by a petty fight or argument. Friends come and go, and most drift away. Time and distance will tell who will stick and who will leave.

5. Microblogging is cool. It takes away the pressure of typing long nonsense posts.
