DABDA

Okay. Let’s talk about your feelings, Mary Rose. Let’s discuss it for your sanity’s sake. I honestly don’t know where to start. But I’m going to put this one out here because I’m better at writing about my thoughts, rather than talk about them with someone else – yup, not even with my dad, brothers,…

Missing You

I miss seeing your happy face; Your smile that lights up even our darker days. I miss watching you giggle That makes our heart grow triple. I miss feeling the warmth of your embrace, Your hug that feels like a safe place. I miss resting my head on your shoulder, Your whisper saying that everything…

Facade

It’s hard to play pretend Like there’s nothing happening. You hope and pray everything will mend, Because deep inside you’re truly hurting. It’s hard to play pretend Like you are strong as how you want people to see you. You try so hard to bend and blend, Taking every minute to get through. It’s hard…

Tuesdays aren’t my favorite

Just before I hit the sack, I just need to release my frustrations. Ever since I started working, I instantly developed a negative feeling toward Tuesday. For some reason, I noticed that my misfortunes usually fall on a Tuesday, and everything seems to be heavier during this day of the week – workload, traffic, etc….

2017 Life Lessons

I still can’t believe that 2017 will be over in a few days!

Worry is a Waste of Time

I worry too much, even if there is nothing to be worried about. I am praning,ย if you must say. I always have to think overthink about every situation, which leads to restlessness and more stress. I know it is not healthy, but bad habits die hard, I guess. But I believe that correcting one’s behavior…

Power of Prayer

A few months ago, while on our way to work, Pablo and I had a conversation about our childhood. I cannot clearly remember other parts of our conversation, but what struck me was my recollection of how I pray every night when I was still a little kid. I told him, every night before going…

YโคGA

Let me start this post by saying I love yoga! And if there’s one type of exercise I could do every single day, it is going to be yoga. Yes, all day, every day. ๐Ÿ˜ I started gaining interest in yoga when I was still in college. And I must admit it started with just…

Sunnies Cafe: Serving Sunshine in Every Dish

I’ve been meaning to try Sunnies Cafe for the longest time. I am a self-confessed fan/stalker of its Instagram account. Opportunity to try it came when my boyfriend was assigned in Boni to attend a week-long training, and having a dinner date in Megamall suddenly became realistic. They say when opportunity knocks on your door,…
