REAL Friends

YOU were amazing tonight, thanks for a great time, though we can’t achieve the Georgina pose and only Jhong can pull it off. Haha!

When I look back at how my relationships with my girl friends here in the Philippines (fondly called Barkada) were, I can’t help but thank God and the world for introducing me to such souls full of wit and humor. Do not get me wrong, we had our downsides as group but I guess the ones who care are the ones who stays no matter what happens.

So many things had happened and at this point I am being mature about relationships and friendships. I am not the type who easily get mad, my patience can be extended to certain heights and though some people take it as advantage, I do not really care as long as I feel sincere in helping them. Today was one of the worst I guess but I need not spill the negative details. What I am just trying to point is, be sure to be there when your friends need you the most, yes friendship can’t and WILL NEVER be counted by how many hours you spent together, BUT always see to it that you TAKE TIME in your busy schedule to squeeze them even just for 2 hours in 365 days. Maybe that wouldn’t hurt.

So to all my ladies out there, make sure you spend some real good quality time with your chikas and do not revolve yourself to only one person.

Another moment where I made fun of myself. I always wanted that blue electric hair. Then again, some things are just visually beautiful and it may not look good after.

What do you think? Feels like I was a member of a rock band that didn’t make it to the Billboard Charts. Lol! Happy Monday everyone! Don’t stress yourself out!

Feeling December

Christmas Photo 2011

T’was around 2:30 in the morning and I’m headed home. The jeepney driver dropped me off a gasoline station and said I need to transfer to a tricycle. That’s fine since I really need to take a trike to get home safely. As the engine roared to life, the cold wind hit my face. I KNEW IN MY HEART, Christmas started for me. You see, I am the type of person who loves July and December so much. Both reasons are pretty obvious, I was born on the month of July (a Leo, roar! Lol!) and December… who wouldn’t love it? Season of merry-making and endless breakfasts, lunch outs and dinner time. Am excited in all aspects, hope you all feel the same. 🙂

A fragile thing.

A poem and the shape of one’s heart

Poet's Corner

Posted for Jashaél

me & you,                              you & me.
these dim thoughts killed                            vacancy. why? i want to be
in love when i am not; & when i                 give in, to fall out i ought,—i am
distraught; (praying to Infinity, obvio[that]us[become]ly, & quite importunely).

Love is all around me and so the feeling grows

Mondays are made for LOVE. That is what I will believe in starting today. I mean, I know LOVE is a daily thing but this day showed me Love in two different angles.

Love can be seen in a face of a lady who’s excited to have a date with the man of her life. A dear friend of mine, whom I am not sure if I should name (haha) is very happy and all giddy as I helped her plan her weekend getaway. My heart was racing with excitement just by thinking how happy their trip will be. Thank you friend for trusting me with this one… now I have another event to specialize on aside from the birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers etc… that is “Date Planning”. Just the thought of writing the letters ETD and ETA makes me jump for joy!

Love can be heard in the laughter of a couple sharing one umbrella under the non-stop rain. After a quick Iced Cafe Mocha with Mint syrup date, I walked to the place where the fx should be waiting. I heard cute little noises, I stopped looking at my feet and my eyes fell on this lovely couple having a really good time together. They were laughing their hearts out, the echos of their love were magical. It was like watching a scene from a movie and I was so glad I was there, right then and there.

See, Love doubles up! It can actually take you to places you have never imagined. One must know how to open their hearts and let the love in. Accept love like you have never been hurt. That is the only way to heal a broken heart. There should be no place for long time hatred. 🙂

DIY Roundup: Update Your Curtains

Hopefully I would learn how to use the sewing machine again, soonest! These curtain ideas are fab!

M&J Blog

Curtains are among the first details you notice when you enter a room. They are both functional and fashionable. In order to get that dramatic effect curtains should be embellished with fringe, pom-pom trim, or greek key Jacquard. Purchasing these curtains ready-made can get pretty expensive which is why we always take the DIY route at M&J. To make your own customized curtains you can purchase inexpensive curtains from a department store and embellish them with any decorative trim. The options are endless!

To give you some inspiration we’ve rounded up some of our favorite curtain makeovers. Let us know what you think!
