Winter Sonata

I’m not telling a melodramatic love story like the Korean series. In fact, I’m super happy amidst the cold season. Probably the happiest I’ve ever been. And it’s an awesome way to start 2015.

Honestly, I can’t write properly. I’m hyped with endorphins. LOL. Yes, these pictures may not look like I’m ecstatic but I really am. I had the opportunity to roam around Northern California including San Francisco before 2014 ended. I mean, sure I’ve traveled to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore this year but all those trips can never compare with my experience here in California. Why? It’s all because I’m with him.

I thought 2014 would be a “year of rejection” for me but I was wrong. 2014 ended and 2015 started with so much heartwarming feels. The neighborhood was quiet compared to how we celebrate New Year’s in the Philippines but none of those things matter when someone’s hugging you tightly while you exchange soft kisses.

Now I know this year will be awesome!


Hope you had a wonderful 2014, guys! Here’s to an amazing year ahead of us! 2015, we’re ready for yah!

My life has been a series of ups and downs, lefts and rights, lately. Kind of like this dress I’m wearing.

I wore that gorgeous dress my Tita gave me last week to work. I was a bit high from all the sweet comments in my previous look that I know I have to play dress up and be all posh again. Heehee.

I’m not going to bore you with so much details but let’s just say that I’m pretty thrilled to leave the Philippines again soon. *wink wink* I thought I was going to experience a lonely Christmas this year but God answered my prayers and finally I can use that visa a week from today. My mind is currently crowded with so many things and my heart just can’t stay put. I’m trying so hard not to overthink but damnit, I’m excited! Haha!

“The threshold is far too large for just one person. It contains two eardrums larger than a dozen marble ballrooms, and empty, echoing veins, like tunnels, you will walk them until you grow old and die without once retracing your steps.”

Where do you think Desire will take me this time?

Feeling Blue

For the past few days I’ve been feeling down lately. I’m usually extra emotional when Christmas is approaching. I know it’s supposed to be a happy holiday with all the gift giving, family reunions, office parties and charity events, but somehow with all these activities around me, I feel like something’s missing and that gives me a heavy heart. I think this year is more emotional than the past years because last year’s Christmas holiday was awesome for me and I know I wouldn’t be able to experience it this year. I won’t go into details anymore. Let’s just say I was high from love last year. :D

I should blame my hormonal state for wearing too much blue lately. But I can’t really help it since blue is also one of my favorite colors. Here are pictures of the outfit I wore last week.

 I guess we all do feel a little depressed sometimes and that’s okay. It’s okay to feel down and blue but it’s how you cope from it that’s important. Like no matter what we encounter in life, it’s how we move on and move forward that’s important. How we should never lose hope of a happy future because we all know everything’s going to be okay eventually. You know what they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonades.
