UST @ 400

I miss the times I've spent in Colayco Park pseudo-studying (when I was actually boy-watching..hehehe!)
I miss eating budget meals in Almer's with friends and classmates
I miss going to the Coop after class to eat kwek-kwek and fishballs
I miss the smell of old books in the library
I miss hanging out in Tinoko Park
I miss the cat-calls I get everytime I'd walk in Espana in my all-white uniform (cat-calls coming from the Rugby boys and the manong drivers. Hahahah!)
I (don't) miss being stranded in school because of the flood
I (don't) miss wearing black kung-fu shoes during P.E.



* Araw araw tuwing papasok ako ng school, nakikita ko yung sign na "Ped Xing". Nung una akala ko street name kaso nagtataka ko kasi halos lahat ng street names sa kahabaan ng Espana eh Spanish names tapos biglang merong instik na nakasali. Toink! Sorry naman, tao lang. Hehe.

* Pauwe nako ng school dati tapos sumakay ako ng Fx. May nagbayad ng pamasahe and the conversation between the pasahero and the driver went like this:

PASAHERO : Manong bayad po.
DRIVER : San galing?
PASAHERO : Sa trabaho po.

Tapos tawa ako ng tawa. Hindi ko napigilan tumawa kase natawa ko sa sagot nung pasahero. Kaso nagtataka ko kase ako lang ang tumatawa. Turns out, may street pala talagang "Trabajo". Syet! Tatanga-tanga lang talaga. Hehehehe!

 I love you USTe!

Bakit kaya minsan ang tao gusto ng komplikado?
Alam na nga ang tama, pero gumagawa ng pa-gago.

Bakit kaya minsan ang tao gusto ng nahihirapan sya?
Alam na ngang bawal, sige pa din. Pucha talaga!

Bakit kaya minsan ang tao gusto ng kaliwa?
Mas tama sa kanan pero tuloy pa din. Walanghiya!

Minsan masarap din kausapin ang sarili eh.
Masarap din murahen.
Para magising sa katotohanan at mauntog.

Hoy gaga, wag kang tatanga-tanga!!!!

(note to myself)

I Wasn't Born Yesterday! Or was I? Hehe

"18" years ago yesterday, a star was born. Hahahaha.

The birthday celebrant was slightly feverish on her big day and was down with cough and colds but even in her sorry, sickly state, she went out and celebrated her birthday with good friends. (Kelangan talaga third person? Hehehe.)

The birthday celebrant didn't want to celebrate her birthday dinner in the mainstream restaurants in the Metro (mainstream = Jollibee, Mang Inasal, Andok's.. Hahaha!). Like her, she wanted it un-conventional and unique.

So off she went to a place tucked away from the buzzling streets of the Metro and dined here --

Al fresco under the moon and the stars and the mosquitoes and the bees =) Hee!

And then she ordered this --

Turkey, Chicken, Gindara, Soup and Rice

Because it was her birthday, she wore red from head to toe (underwear included). Hahaha.

She didn't have a birthday candle to blow so she settled for this ......


She closed her eyes, made a wish and blew.

She had a wonderful birthday! :)

"You are only young once, but you can be a kid at heart for a lifetime."

The Unpure Birthday Girl,


P.S. I will post a restaurant review in the next few days when I'm feeling slightly better. Stay tuned! xoxo

The 4 L's of Loving

We Love.
  We Lose.
    We Learn.
      We Let Go.



If you follow my blog regularly, you might have picked up on some mushy posts that I have made a couple of months back about me and a boy. Yes, I loved. I loved dearly and I loved with all my heart. It had a wonderful start, a great follow-through and a not-so-good ending. (Pretty much like the ones you see in MMK or those tagalog series you watch on primetime TV. *insert chuckle*)


I thought that I have already found my match in him.  It was really magical. Even my friends and family were happy for me because they saw in my eyes that I was truly happy. It still gives a slight (READ: slight na lang!) pain in my heart everytime I refer to the whole thing in the past tense. I WAS happy. It WAS magical. WAS! It was a product of the past. 


I have learned alot of things because of that experience. I have learned that it is okay to trust on my instincts. I have always been an optimistic person. I have always thought that the world's full of kind and warm people with nothing but good intentions. But I discounted the fact that there are also people out there who will try to manipulate you, coax you and lie to you just so they can play out their hidden agendas.

But now I learned my lesson.

Let Go.

Like what I said, it had a wonderful start, we had alot of awesome memories. I had a hard time letting go at first. I made several attempts to cut the cord but I kept sliding back. Until finally, I came to my senses and I realized that I should love myself more than anything/anyone.  And cliche as it may sound, I realized that I am too good of a woman to settle for less than anything that I deserve. So I finally let go. I bid goodybe. And this time, there's no turning back.

My heart is somewhere between grieving and healing.  I am finding comfort in the warm hugs and sincere smiles of family and friends. And there's this one song that I keep playing over and over and over to help me get through the pain. I find comfort in the lyrics of this song. And true to the lyrics, I know that it will all get better in time. =)


BETTER IN TIME by Leona Lewis

Better In Time

It's been the longest winter without you

I didn't know where to turn to
See somehow I can't forget you
After all that we've been through

Going coming
Thought I heard a knock
Who's there no one
Thinking that I deserve it
Now I realize that I really didn't know
If you didn't notice you mean everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All that I know is I'mma be ok

Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
Even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

I couldn't turn on the TV
Without something there to remind me
Was it all that easy
To just put aside your feelings

If I'm dreaming don't wanna laugh
Hurt my feelings but that's the path
I'll believe in
And I know time will heal it
If you didn't notice boy you mean everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All I know is I'mma be ok

Since there's no more you and me
It's time I let you go
So I can be free
And live my life how it should be
No matter how hard it is I'll be fine without you
Yes I will
