“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one” - C.S. Lewis

i go back to march 8, 2010 at exactly 1:25 pm when i met a new found friend. it was an impulse actually when i said hi to him through ym. he was my first – first interactive blogger friend, that is. and he replied with a "? lol, how? :D", i was happy, humbled and, yes, even a bit starstruck.

he is someone i look up to. he writes with so much depth, so much emotion, so much insight. and getting to know him more personally was such a delight.

with him, i found a treasured friend.

a treasured maarte friend :p

for all the laughs

for all the kwento

for all the chismis

for all the hugs

for your friendship

thank you!

to the one who fell in love with a cyber-celebrity,

i don’t have anything to give to you

but my prayers to God

to always bless you

with more love

and happiness.

a happy, happy birthday to you, darc!

"Vanity is so secure in the heart of man that everyone wants to be admired: even I who write this, and you who read this." - Blaise Pascal

okay, so here’s the thing. i am a certified lip balm addict.

i can’t leave home without one in my pocket. maybe it’s a fixation with always wanting to have soft and luscious lips all the time.

i have used several brands of lip balms. from the cheap ones to the very pricey ones. sticks, tubes and yes, even those roll-on types. flavored and bland. but, of course, i have never tried the ones with color.

right now, i’m using a lip balm that my partner gave me. well, technically i took it from him. it’s actually good. applies well and has that cool, minty feel to it.

but there’s this one specific lip balm product that was really perfection. i swear i had the softest, most smooth lips when i was using that product. too bad though they stopped selling it here a couple of years ago.

so, it was a delight when i found out from a friend, who’s now in japan, that she found the product there. of course, i asked her to buy some from me. syempre di pwedeng isang box lang pabili ko, i asked her to send me 1 box of lip moisturizer. hoarder-much? lol

i have to wait til december, though. but, it will be worth the wait, definitely.

right in time for my birthday and christmas! yipee! =)

"Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I could really use a wish right now, wish right, wish right now" - B.O.B. feat. Hayley Williams (Airplanes)

tomorrow i will see my friend cry.

tomorrow i will see her heart break just a little bit.

because tomorrow a love will become distant.

my close friend’s boyfriend will be leaving for canada tomorrow to work for a year. the confirmation to work abroad was, in a way, very sudden. he was informed just two weeks ago and got word to leave for tomorrow just last saturday.

though this has been planned, we all never thought that it would be this soon. all the while, we thought that they would be able to tie the knot before close friend’s boyfriend leaves. but, with this, they would have to wait until he gets back home next year.

close friend told me that though she has prepared herself a long time for this to happen, you will never be prepared enough when the moment arrives. every morning she tells me how she would stop herself from crying, but tears would just fall from her eyes. just last night, she texted me that she couldn’t stop crying.

i can feel her loneliness, her sadness.

but i always tell her, they would be able to get through this. one year is just a short time. the physical presence may not be there temporarily but the love will still be there. and besides, they have been in the same situation way back in 2006 during their first five months of their relationship. and, i know her boyfriend is loyal and loves her dearly. so, definitely there won’t be a problem.

still though, i know that the longingness would be unbearable.

tomorrow i will join my friend.

tomorrow i will witness as she hugs her boyfriend goodbye at the airport.

tomorrow i will see my friend cry.

but, i will be there.

a friend to comfort her.

one more time let me kiss you
close your eyes i'll be on my way"

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.

"Yes, Piglet?"

"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you.”


you are my daily dose of happiness.

your simple yet thoughtful morning greetings get my day going.

the breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between reminders, i always look forward to. because you know how much i love to eat.

and when my day gets rough, you’re always a willing ear to my rants.

the way you take care of me, indescribable and priceless. and, yes, you’re very good at it.

that’s why spoiling you is never a question.

and have i told you that hearing your voice always makes me smile?

that’s the reason why, at the end of everyday, i always look forward to talking to you on the phone.

we may be apart from each other, but, i have never felt distant from you.

you have made me feel that

you are just within reach

for a warm hug

a sweet kiss

and a whole lotta love


you make me so excited
and i don't wanna fight it
i start to blush
you are my sugar rush
ain't nothing better baby
is it for real or maybe?
i start to blush
you are my sugar rush

"The one charm of the past is that it is the past." - Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)

sometimes knowing someone’s past is never a good thing.

you get to know them even more, yes.

but also you get to know the untold secrets.

find things you would have chosen not to discover.

and, it could be very hurtful at times.

i’m sorry.

i could not stop myself.

i peeked.

i just need time to take this all in.
