Grieving yet fighting

There will be days when you will feel okay, ready to face the world like nothing happened. But there will be days also when emptiness will still be felt; days when pain will be more apparent. Grief is a terrible feeling. It has random triggers, and every trigger will give you different levels of pain…

Rainy weather thoughts

I am not a big fan of rain. The gloomy weather invites gloomy thoughts and unreasonable sadness. Aside from the sluggishness that comes with it, the rain gives me all the reasons to disregard all the will power I am left with. Don’t get me wrong. I am still thankful for the rain, especially that…

Make-up Haul

If you read my post about the running challenge that Pablo and I had earlier this year, you would know that I will be gifted with make-up as my reward if I will be able to run 5k continuously, without any walking break or whatsoever. And because this girl is decided to have her make-up,…

Scarred and Scared

Your 20s is the time when you feel so healthy and alive. You do not feel that you are vulnerable to any disease even though you binge on junk food, sleep late, sleep less, do lots of things without getting proper rest, and the list could go on and on and on. Put simply, it…

Tahanan Bistro

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought it is timely to share the best date experience Pablo and I had experienced by far. If you are still scouting for a place for a romantic date or an intimate gathering, we have a great suggestion. I will try to bring you with us…

Running Challenge

Just this morning, while doing some stretching exercises before our Saturday morning run, Pablo posed a very enticing workout challenge. (Enticing because I know I can beat him to it. *fingers crossed*). 😂 Going back to the challenge… Since we’ve been regularly (well sort of regular, I believe) running 5k every Saturday, he tested me…

New Year’s Resolutions

This is the time of the year when many of us will come up with our year-end essays and long list of resolutions for the coming year. 😂 Others may think that doing so is overrated, well kanya kanyang trip lang ‘yan. Let them express or write anything they want. You, on the other hand,…

Checking In

Just renewed my plan for this blog, and I realized I was not able to maximize my last year’s plan, and I am not really good at maintaining my commitment to write more often. I know I do not have to explain to anyone, but my inactivity here is just a mere by-product of life’s…

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….
