Celebrating The End of 2006

Celebrating The End of 2006

2006 is ending. A new year, 2007, is coming to our lives.

Before 2006 year, let me dedicate this entry for the top 10 things that filled my year. Thanks to Edmar for this idea.


1. My Birthday Bash at Government. No intimate celebration this year. Sad.
2. My GMA exit. I miss it somehow.
3. Holy Week at Puerto Galera. It was a fun filled week spent with friends.
4. A start of new career – Visual Merchandiser. Thanks to Mama Bam and Mama Sand. Our tandem led up to our own Events Company which started last September with Tita Toni and Raymund – Planetmint Events and Concepts.
5. Mountaineering at Mount Romelo. It was a very tiring but adventurous climb up a mountain. Three hours of hiking?!? All I can say is: Not For Me.
6. An “ocular” trip to Cabugao, Ilocos Sur with Mama Sand, Mama Bambi, Lester and Raymund. Ocular for our team means checking one place and then spending the rest of the two day trip on vacation.
7. Manaoag Part I with Lester, Richard and Jeff. We went to Manaoag to pray for the Lester’s board. A road trip came true with three of my special friends. It is said that Manaoag is very powerful. Want some proof? Lester passed the board. Of course, the three of us (Richard, Jeff and I) wished some things for ourselves aside from Lester’s board. FYI, a day after our trip, Mike texted me, Richard got himself a job and Matt texted Jeff.
8. Dagupan and Manaoag Part II with Lester and Edmar. Harli invited us to judge a dance competition at Dagupan. All expense paid exclusive of the fare. So we jumped on board. Personally, I feel like I needed this break. This also gave a chance for us to thank Manaoag for everything.
9. Arnold and Ava's Wedding. The wedding of Mama Bambi's brother was our first official event. Though it was for free, I enjoyed working for it! Another event was Rxandy’s photo exhibits.
10. My cousins and Taer's two-week homecoming. Though I wasn't able to spend time with them because of work, it was so refreshing seeing my cousins and my 3 year old nephew on Christmas Day. I miss Taer already!

TOP TEN SONGS (this is hard for me to pick since I am a music lover. Hey, I have 781 songs in my I-Pod and you expect me to choose 10?!?)

1. Didn’t We Almost Have It All by Whitney Houston. Perfectly describes everything we are, right Mike?
2. Beautiful Days by Kyla. A beautiful song written by Kyla herself.
3. What Kind Of Fool Am I by Regine Velasquez. She blew us away with his performance of this song in her Twenty Concert.
4. This Too Shall Pass by India Arie. This song helped me (together with my friends' presence) realized that the hurt Mike brought to me shall also pass.
5. The Hurt I’d Go Through by Kyla. A soulful song written by Keith Martin for the R & B Princess.
6. Hanggang Ngayon by Ogie and Regine. A videoke favorite, right Lester?
7. These Dreams by Heart. Another videoke favorite, right Mama Sann?
8. Maybe It’s You by Jolina Magdangal. It has been one of my favorite love songs since I was introduced to it.
9. Hurt by Christina Aguilera. The first time I heard this song, I got teary eyed. The moment I saw the video, I cried. Love it!
10. Fly Like A Bird by Mariah Carey. A very inspirational song.


1. God – Nothing is more important than God.
2. My mom and my siblings – I am so thankful for my mom and my siblings.
3. Lester – I don't know what or where I am now if Lester wasn't one of my close friends. Maybe in a prison or in a mental hospital or six feet under. He is always there for me even at 3AM! Can you believe it?
4. Mama Bam – Ever since my Saga days, Mama Bam has always been there for me. She was the one who called me the moment she knew that I was out of GMA and invited me to hop on to their group. Hop on I did!
5. Mama Sand – Mama Sand is Mama Bam's college friend. She is my great mentor in Visual Merchandising. Work is so dull without her (and Mama Bam's) presence!
6. Edmar – My kumare. Now, he is our Junior Marketing Director in Planetmint. Sosyal! A very lovable and caring friend to everyone. As in EVERYONE!
7. Randy – the Bauding Photographer. You think it's a typo, right? No, I did it intentionally. It is a combination of Bading and Budding. A great friend and a lovable photographer! Did I say that he is the best?
8. Robyn – He left us for Qatar, for crying out loud! I know it has only been weeks but we miss her already. Boom tarat tarat! Robyn, just like Randy, has been a dear friend since High School. I smile and remember you everytime I hear You've Got A Friend!
9. Jaymie – Jaymie is Randy's cousin. This year, we got close because of Randy's exhibit. And thank God for her cousin's exhibit! She is now a gimik buddy, inuman partner and a co-grand mami killer.
10. China – How can I forget my sister slut? I miss our hotel adventure slut! Next time, we should bring bed partners already so we don’t have to talk about things until 2 AM!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

I always love singing this Christmas song: And so I'm offering this very simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92. Though it's been said many many times, many different ways, Merry Christmas to you.

So to all my dear friends, readers and family, Merry Christmas. Thanks for sharing the year with me. We fucking rock!

Plus, it's been a year since I switched from Tabulas to Blogger; so Happy Anniversary Blog!!!

Michael and Cecilia

Michael and Cecilia

Michael: Hey I thought you were sick?

Cecilia: I am. I have colds and coughs. Don’t I look sick?

M (with a smile on his face): No. You look absolutely fine.
C: Thank you.

M (suddenly becoming serious): Look, I came here coz I wanted to talk to you.

Cecilia (hoping she could turn his serious look into a friendly one; with a smile she said): Talk? We can always talk on the phone.

M (still serious): I am fucking serious Cecilia.

C (scared of the look on his face): Ok, then talk.

M: I know things between us are not perfect as you wanted it to be. But I am trying hard to keep things fair.

C (trying hard not to be sarcastic): I know. And I wanna thank you for your effort.

M (as if he never heard anything she just said): I know I cannot give you the perfect dates and relationship that you want, but I am giving you everything the best way I can. I know you know about me and Toni. Cecilia, I realized I love you more than I think I do. And I just want to ask you a very simple question.

C: And that would be?

M (looking at Cecilia): I want an honest answer. Can you go on with "us"?

C (caught off guard by the question): Uhhmm…Are you okay with "us"?

M: Answer my question.

C (afraid of the look on his face and with his tone): I can go on with us. But spare me Toni’s drama. Michael, from the start, I know about you and Toni. And since then, I agreed on our set-up. I have to make a lot of sacrifices, including my grudge against mistresses. But everytime Toni calls me on my cellphone, it just makes my situation worst. He is telling me things that I know but cannot accept. Everytime I hear her speak ill of me, it makes me wonder if I am really the same Cecilia before.

M (smiling though you can see the hurt in his eyes): You still are.

C: I don’t know about that. You changed me Michael. Everything that I thought I cannot do, I did it for you. Now, about the question you asked me: I can go on. But can you spare me Toni’s drama? Can you control her the next time she had the urge to call me?

M: I am not sure about that.

C (trying hard not to sound hurt): Now, can you go on with us knowing that the person that I love is just hurting me with the things that he cannot do for me?

M: I can’t.

C: Then you answered your own question.

***long fucking silence***

C: Michael, are you okay?

M: No, I am not. I hate goodbyes.

C: Nobody likes goodbyes.

M (his voice croaking): I hate this goodbye, especially because you don’t even seem to be hurt.

C: I am hurt.

M: Why can’t I see a sad look on your face?

C: Because I am so messed up the first time we said goodbye. I think I wore myself down.

***another long silence***

C: So are we good?

M: Don’t I deserve a final goodbye kiss?

C (leaning towards Michael): You so do.

***long romantic kiss***

M: I’m gonna miss you, can we talk for awhile?

C: I will miss you too, but I have to go. The longer I stay, the harder this will be for the both of us. Plus, I am sick., remember? (ending her sentence with a smile.)

M: Before you leave, I just want to say sorry for the things that I never did for you.
C: No need. I completely understand.
M: And I wanna say something but I guess it is better left unsaid right now.

C: I know. I want to say that too.

M: I just want you to know that I do. I still do.

C: Me too.

M: You take care of yourself, ok?

C (trying to sound casual): Yeah, ako pa! You also take care of yourself, naughty boy!

M: Shall I take you home?

C: No need. I know my way back…

***with a smile and a touch on Michael’s cheeks, she opened the car door and left***

Now, who said love is sweeter the second time around?

One Liner for Someone

One Liner for Someone

Tell me how on earth do I unlearn to love you?

That someone will be the one to whom I dedicated a first and last post few months back.

New Layout, New Life

New Layout, New Life
I know my title is inappropriate. It should be new layout because my readers are having a hard time browsing through my previous lay out.
I am too tired to put tagboards but you can leave you comments on the comment board. One thing that is lacking in my last lay out.
My links were also removed. So to my fellow blogger friends, my apologies. I will update my links as soon as I get an access to a DSL internet.
