Do you believe in "love at first sight"? Well, I do. I remember the time I saw you. I fell in love in just a snap. You made me want you more. Then, as the day goes by I suddenly have the urge to have you badly in my arms. I just can’t stop thinking about you, almost every day and every night. You are present in my freaking mind. Why? Why did you let me? Now, my day is incomplete without thinking of you. Is this too much? I guess it is. I am putting destiny into my hands. I should succeed. I will. I am doing my best to be by your side. It took me awhile to figure out all of this mayhem. I thought I will never have you. Through hard work, patience and prayers, I have received such a wonderful gift. I am totally thankful for it. I thought dreams will stay as a dream but I am wrong. I can say... “I am blessed to have you now here.” Finally, my search is over. We can share memories together. Explore new things. Have the heart-pumping-adrenaline-rush adventures. See the beauty of the world in high definition. Those days will be worth it. <3
Well, today? I just bummed around in our house. The coffee time with friends were postponed due their own appointment. Unfortunately, I don't have any back-up plan. After lunch, my mom went to her friend's house while my sister has a ballet class every Saturday. So I end up at home alone, not really alone but I'm like alone. Whatever. Moreover, I decided to watched "The Vampire Diaries". Will you believe that I spent my 6 whole hours just watching some parts of "The Vampire Diaries" (Season 1)? You should.
|So cheezy, I just can't bite it. hahaha|
When the time, I suddenly felt hunger. I rush to our kitchen cabinet to find something to eat. Then, I found the Cheezy Mac & Cheese. It's ready to cook. I'd microwave it. Ta-daaa! Time to eat. My first bite was awesome. On the other hand, the second spoonful of Cheezy Mac & Cheese, was not-so-like-the-first-one. Eew! I realize if I throw them away, I will waste a lot of food. I think and think. What's wrong with this food? Hmmm.. It lack something. *light bulb appeared*.. BACON!!! I cooked BACON! hahaha Success! I finished all of the food. Now, I won't feel guilty anymore. :)
Pasinaya 2011 is a CCP (Cultural Center of the Philippines) open house festival, where it was open for public last February 6,2011. Many talented Filipinos showcase their brilliant performance here. One of them is my sister. Damn! I'm proud of it. haha Every year or every other year the ballet school of my sister were always invited to dance ballet. Yes! she's into classical music and I am not.
|the entrance to bulwagan something (sorry forgot the name of the room). hehehe|
|shoot me now.|
It started around 4 o'clock to 5 o'clock in the afternoon. It is just a short performance from them. Compare to the other shows I have been. gad.. It was long. hahaha Thank God! We were not late. I thought we won't be able to watched their performance because of slight misunderstanding and difficulties. Then again, thanks to one of the mommies, who talked with the people handling the venue. They let us entered without any tickets. Cool right!?! =)
During the show:
On our way to the parking lot:
|with the ticket|
|look! my hand it's there. :))|
After the show, we went to the mall of asia to eat dinner and to bought some stuff. Then, we went home. Well, on June my sister will have another recital on CCP. I think they haven't decided yet if its "hanzel or gretel" or "sugar plum princess". I'll upate you soon. =)
(In Response to Charles Warnke’s You Should Date An Illiterate Girl.)
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book. Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent.
Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilightseries.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes.
Pinoy Pride! Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao's house was featured on MTV Cribs, a tv show that features about the cool and amazing mansions of famous celebrity. Compare to the other houses of famous celebrity, I think his house is a little bit simple but it has this cool fire place in his swimming pool. It could be a running water by day and a fireplace by night. He has a lot of pictures in his house. I like the painting in his dinning area, it's him imitating the pose of San Lorenzo Luis (not sure or santino?hahaha). Overall, thumbs up! love it. I'm proud for him. =)
