“Most of us can remember a time when a birthday - especially if it was one's own - brightened the world as if a second sun has risen.” – Robert Staughton Lynd

every year on your birthday, know that someone is happy

happy to care for you

happy to laugh with you (and even cry with you)

happy to share life with you

happy to love you

because know that

you are and will always be

someone’s sweet blessing.

a visit

“No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth.”  – Robert Southey

i miss this.

this space.

you were once my daily fix.

you were my first activity before i start working.

my last activity before i go to sleep at night.

i miss the people.

their stories.

but i’ve noticed most have also not been updating their spaces.

where are they?

i hope they come back and share their stories again.

i miss them.

this is space used to be my sanctuary.

reality got in the way.

maybe it’s time to come and visit more often.

hop and “listen” once again.

because, i really miss this.

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”  – Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright

in times when you text that you had to cancel your order in a restaurant

because your food has not been served yet after 30 minutes,

i wish i could be there to comfort you

say “relax, we’ll find another place.

and accompany you for dinner even if i already had mine.

so, is a text or a call okay with you?

just for now. :)

i’ll also send a virtual hug for you to top it all off! >:D<

“It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.” – Alice

i am Alice who never got in to wonderland

i only got a glimpse through the key hole of that tiny door.

it opened a couple of times.

i only got one foot in.

i am Alice and i want to experience wonderland.

it might be crazy.

it might be weird.

but i want to be lost, be amazed, be surprised.

i am Alice knocking for wonderland.

please open the door and let me in.

to wander inside would be bliss.

and to experience the greatness that’s inside.

i am Alice waiting and ready to get inside.

i wish wonderland…

seize the day!

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

i smiled the first time i heard this song.

and now still, i smile everytime i hear it.

makes me feel giddy, sunshine-y, happy.

just like a kid eating ice cream on a warm sunny day.


Hooray for mornings and things that make them good

Hooray for beaming smiles that make my day

Hooray for stops and gos

Hooray for colors and quick hellos

Hooray for surprises that walk my way

Hooray for friends I'll make, oh hey...hey!

Hooray for treats that make me smile,

Like magic stripes that fill the sky

Hooray for days that make me say,

Oh Hooray for today!

p.s. and the song is in loop in my playlist :)

“Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage.” – Drew Barrymore 

i’ve been considering getting a tattoo.

straight crushie friend also said he wants to get inked. if only he had the guts to do it.

close friend said she would never consider getting a tattoo because tattoos are dirty. but said she loves the thought of having one. she would want a four leaf clover below her left eye. colored green. shimmering green. lol. originally, she would have wanted to have a tattoo of tweety bird. but she’s afraid that it wouldn’t look exactly like tweety and might look like tweety’s cousin or something. so she settled for a clover instead.

as for me, I was thinking of a trident. just behind my right ear (imagine chris brown’s star tattoo).

i would like to believe that i have a high tolerance for pain. but then again, i really don’t think i would have the courage to get a tattoo. or maybe, i'm just such a prude. lol.

for now, i’ll just stick to henna.

“Life is often compared to a marathon, but I think it is more like being a sprinter; long stretches of hard work punctuated by brief moments in which we are given the opportunity to perform at our best” - Michael Johnson

i’ve lost track on how many runs i’ve joined since 2010. as of the moment, my closet is filled with singlets of races i’ve ran. it was all for fun’s sake when i started running on a measly 3k distance with a very unimpressive time. but, eventually it became, to some extent, addictive. the adrenaline, the excitement and the pride you feel when you reach the finish line. i started to join more fun runs held almost every weekend and inched my way up with 5k, then 10k, and just this morning my first ever 12k.

one of the most memorable runs that i’ve had was when i was beside coach rio dela cruz at the starting line of the run rio davao leg last august 2011. and he ran with me for the first few meters. then, i left him. uhm, because he was running way too slow. lol. kidding.

sadly with all the runs that i’ve joined, i still don’t have the runner’s built that i’ve wanted. maybe with a few more runs, i'd get there. and that's a big maybe.

and for my first ever 12k run, i finished with an approximate time of 1:20:00. a couple of minutes slower than my target finish but hey not bad for a first time.

and i got myself my first ever finisher’s medal. :D

yey me!
