Did you know August?


Do you know him? I mean the month of August? Funny how I came across this website where they have a list of the ‘Bizarre and Unique Holidays’ for certain months. I want to share that this month is “Romance Awareness Month” (that’s new for me, I thought that word Romance and Love can only be over used during February, lol!)

Also listed were the weekly events such as the following:

  • Week 1 National Simplify your Life Week (how do I do this? repeat to myself ten times before going to work: No to Stress!)
  • Week 2 National Smile Week (smile like the Miss Universe candidates?)
  • Week 3 Friendship Week (good works for my friends)
  • Week 4 Be Kind to Humankind Week (shower some warmth in any way I can)

And a few exciting days that I want to take part in:

4 Friendship Day – for all my loves!

4 International Forgiveness Day – greatest we can give to one another is Forgiveness

4 Sisters Day – Jolly, Rose and Kriss

6 Wiggle Your Toes Day – just wiggle it!

9 Book Lover’s Day – photo session with my books?

10 Lazy Day – equal to sleep all day

15 Relaxation Day – spa, massage or mani and pedi?

18 Bad Poetry Day – yes, more poetry like mine, haha!

Now you that you met him your month will not be so boring at all! Imagine all these holidays? 🙂 Last month before we enter the BER months and the holidays are here again! Maligayang Pasko na!!!


Killing my blog


For some unknown reason, I decided to kill my blog the other day but DIDN’T HAPPEN. I have been very busy participating in life I felt like I had no more time to write. If I am not eating out with friends, or watching movies, or reading a book, I find myself sleeping or Instagram-ing. I intentionally didn’t ask my close friends if it’s okay to them if I kill my blog or whatsoever. Was busy working when I suddenly blurted out that I plan to do so. Of course they questioned me “Why?”, told them I do not feel so inspired at all and there’s so many things going on in my life. They asked me to think again real hard… pulled my brains and stuck a needle on my skin. Arghhhh! Then I said to myself today…

“What the hell am I thinking??? Why am going to kill one thing that I love the most? Personal friends of mine love visiting my site (Thank you so much from the deepest part of my soul). They say my blog is very ‘fun’ to browse and read. Some are surprised I even write poetry and consider me as an artist. My connection to this blog had been so real and killing this will be one great mistake. It may have started out of boredom but I made sure to share real life experiences of my travels and feelings. Besides, I did convince a few friends of mine to use WordPress and then I am gonna kill mine? For sure they will think I am one of the craziest lady they ever met. :)”

So now I need a “BLOG PUSH”. A push that will take me to higher limits in hopes of becoming a better blogger.

PUSH.PUSH.PUSH. As the quote above says, I will continue to look at the stars!

Someone like you


Compliments are always lovely. When a person receives one, a smile automatically forms. Just a simple “You’re shoes look fab!” make me all giddy.

Out of all the good things I heard, one stood out. I was at work then, so I spent some time talking to my colleagues before the shift started. We exchanged short stories about life in general. Then one said, “You know what, I want my son to marry someone like you. For sure you’ll make a great wife”. For a minute I can’t seem to speak. Not sure how to respond so I just muttered a small “Thank You”. But deep inside I want to sit down, talk to her some more and ask her how can she say that. I am too stunned to speak, I want to jump up and down, tell her it was the greatest thing I have heard but I am too shy (at that moment) lol 🙂

This happened four years ago and I still want to know the reason behind her words. Should I go and ask her? Not sure if she remembers the conversation though.
