Engagement

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on March 8, 2016.   I’m the type who doesn’t like to wear jewelries when I was young. I used to hate cosmetics too but that’s a different story. I was very surprised when @inomon asked me to marry him. It’s not because I didn’t think that he would be the one, but because after all that my parents have been through, I couldn’t believe that someone would like to be with me for the rest of his life. I knew for a fact that I’m not the best person in…

An Accidental Date in Intramuros, Manila (#6years&9months)

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on February 27, 2016. I haven’t written anything about this post since I posted it 4 days ago. These photos were taken last February 23, 2016. Ino and I somewhat celebrated our 81st monthsarry or 6 years and 9 months anniversary in Intramuros, Manila. We initially planned to process my papers at the Archdiocesan Chancery Office Arzobispado de Manila for my baptismal certificate’s amendment. We also planned to go to the church (where I had my baptism) on the same day. We had lunch at KFC nearby Manila Cathedral, then we went to Intramuros…

My 2015

I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone that I’ve met this year. It’s not only the people that I’ve met that I’m thankful for. I am also treasuring the good times and the bad times that I have experienced all throughout the year. Life was indeed a roller coaster ride. It was a journey. From my numerous trials and defeats in becoming a Team Leader, to becoming a soon-to-be-wife. Who would have thought that I would be engaged on Christmas Eve? In front of Ino’s family, he asked for my hand in marriage, and since I’ve been waiting for…

Our 6th Anniversary

This entry was originally posted on May 26, 2015.   Ino and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary over the weekend on May 23, 2015. It was our first time to celebrate our relationship on the same day. So, it was actually a milestone for us that we got to celebrate our special day on the same day after 6 years. We left Manila at 4:30 A.M on Saturday and we barely had enough time to really get some sleep because we need to check in at 3 P.M. We almost fought on our way to San Antonio, Zambales because we…

Of Marriage Proposals

This blog post was posted on my WordPress account on March 10, 2015.   Mag-a-anim na taon na kami. Ilang beses na kaming tinatanong ng kung sino-sino. Relatives, friends, schoolmates, strangers, etc. Kung kelan daw ba ang kasal? At countless times ko na ring sinagot at kinounter ng “Hindi pa napapanahon.” o kaya naman pabiro naming sinasagot ng… “Kung s-sponsor-an niyo ba, sa lalo’t madaling panahon. O kaya bukas!” sabay tawa. Minsan, hindi ko na din alam ang isasagot ko. Minsan kapag wala na akong kawala sinasabi ko na lang. “Hindi pa niya ako tinatanong, e.” E, sa hindi pa,…

Commentary on Love, Ideals and Stability

This is my first commentary about Love. It is originally posted on my Tumblr account on July 6, 2014.   I have become the kind of person who doesn’t write something about love regularly. However, I couldn’t brush off the topic because I guess, it was an interesting thought that I could entertain once in a while. When I was writing this, I was thinking about my response to my colleague’s question one evening. He asked me about my ideal type and my thoughts on stability. We know for a fact that I’m not a love guru. If I hadn’t…
