my piece of peace


12 midnight today, he went out to bought me flowers. I woke up early morning with these beauties beside the bed. I planted a kiss on his left cheek, thanking him for the romantic gesture he did for my birthday.


Afternoon, we had our own personal meeting of our plans and goals for the year as a couple. I decided to “unplug” myself and focus on the things that have more weight in my life, as it should always be. I spent the day with him and thank God for another year that has passed and hopefully, another year to add in my life. We don’t know what’s ahead of us, nor the challenges that may come. But I’m glad, at this point in time, I have my best friend around to keep me grounded.

Come dinner, he took me out to Guevarra’s, a restaurant tucked in a residential place at San Juan. I liked how the place was secluded from the noise of Manila, alongside the historic feel that somehow makes one nostalgic and calm.

Our dining experience was memorable, everything was perfect. We came in for early dinner, which was a good idea so that we can both get rested and ready for work week. And the food? It was great, we literally had stomach ache. No kidding, we did, that we took Moroccan Mint tea to ease the pain off the time we got home. 🙂


Best birthday ever, especially when you spend it with someone you’ve always prayed to God for. Here’s to hoping and praying for more of the best birthdays to come.

(Thank you God! 🙂


wow. 2015.

My life in 2014 went so fast, I didn’t even know where’d it go exactly.

Okay, so maybe I do.

And a grain of truth dawned upon me: the more you get blessed, the more you get busy. So BUSY I WENT. It was full of ups and downs, challenges and MORE challenges, victories and failures. I can never quite say I’m there yet, there being where I want to be. But the journey has been spontaneous, continuous and frankly, quite “interesting”.

Thus, I look forward to a better 2015. This, by far, may be the BEST year ever. Or worst.

But that’s LIFE. You take it as it is and get gutsy enough to face it.


PS. My resolution? Probably be a better blogger of life this time. I haven’t been for more than six months now.

driving 101. and 101. and some more 101.

Refresher course!

I’ve had one too many driving lessons and here I am, yet again, giving it another try. No regrets from my past lessons. The technical stuff has been taught; but back when I was in my teens/ twenties, my attitude about driving pointed towards immature reasons. Maybe that’s why I learned the right things at the wrong time. Too much responsibility (in driving) and bad attitude just don’t match. Never will.

Compared to my past driving experiences, I enjoyed it this time around. I’m digesting things little by little, bearing in mind that driving is not to be taken too lightly, nor too seriously. Driving should be enjoyed in moderation, taking into account the responsibility that comes with it. 

After all, driving is a privilege and the best you I can do is to do it safely for the motoring public and myself.

Indeed, experience proves to be a good teacher.

keep your heart right

Starting the year keeping mine.MIHDid cardio today for thirty minutes, consider this a log of my routine. May not be always, but I’ll try! Really try! I’m getting tired of my muffin top. It’s so passé.MTHel-loooo Muffin Top, I liked you for a while but you seriously gotta’ go.
