Baguio | Day 1

As promised, I’m gonna dole out the lowdown of the highlights of our Baguio 3-day vacation last week. What I will do is convene the events per day. So this blog post would convey our first day in Baguio.

On our way there, waking up super early, I really thought I would be sticking my nose on my pillow and sleep. But then, with Paula on my side, I only managed to nap almost an hour and what I did on the whole trip was these:

As we plan as to what place are we staying, my mom said that her former peer in Qatar Airways owns a vacation house at Baguio but since she won’t be able to come with us, we decided to stay at /Baguio Holiday Villa./ My cousins by the way (Paula and Renz), Tito Rene, Tita Grace, my aunt (Tita Lulu) who we usually go out with and my brother are my companions on this particular trip.

Take It Slow

Hi there! As what I avowed in my Facebook account, few days ago, we had a 3-day-vacay at Baguio City, Benguet. And absolutely, we had fun in the most spectacular way (well, almost!). Stay tuned for my blog post on what went down in our three giddy day vacay in Baguio.

As we grow up, we let ourselves engross and interact with diverse kinds of people. Some stay, some came just to pass by and let us learn life lessons that we haven’t fathom yet. Most of them come and sadly, leave us for no apparent reason. Maybe God let those people leave for us to open our doors with better ones who will intend to stay with us for long.

With that, we have to be prudent and wise as to who will we let ourselves to. Back when I was a kid, I used to be over generous and too friendly with my friends to the point of them, taking advantage of me. Back then, I was too naive to realize such mistake. And so as I grow up, I still continue doing the said attitude in all of my relationships with everyone I value. And that perhaps, led me to meeting people who thinks only of their own welfare even if it means hurting other people.

Furthermore, we should choose discerningly who will we invest our time and effort with. And when you know for a fact that you’re with a person who will not radiate the best in you, you gotta stop it right away. Otherwise, you’re just giving that person the chance to take you for granted.

As for this look, since we seldom stay in an all day keen place, I grabbed the opportunity to wear pieces which I cannot wear in the usual disposition I am in the Philippines. Here it is!

My shameless selfie slash OOTD says, Hello! :) That was from yesterday’s Graduates’ Banquet at our church. Business professionals from a church and our head pastor doled out some life lessons, advices and thoughts to ponder for us to be roused to work hard as we enter the corporate world. Free meals and ESV bible were given out as well. (My favorite food choices among the food catering were included here.)

As I set off to attend the disclosed event, I made sure that I would not depart without attaining new knowledge and heap various thoughts to ponder in order for me to be primed with transitioning from a student to a professional as I cross the threshold of the corporate world.

One thing we are to be acquainted with is that every foundation in our lives are all on the process of change. We are given the free will to decide for ourselves. Therefore, we are to choose the path we will take wisely. Facts are no longer relevant. Wisdom is.

We are ought to fathom that everything’s gonna change. Except for God. He will never ever change. And we are thought that we have to learn how to play into our strength. The harder we work, the more God will bless us. After all, as what it is avowed in Proverbs 14:23, all hard work brings profit but mere talk leads only to poverty.

We should always come early, go home late and converge ourselves with working hard. It was said that when you have reputation of being a hard worker, many companies will go after you. And we have to show off on time always.

What do you prefer? Slow or quick success? If we covet the quick one, we are to examine our steps and take the steps that are firm. (Proverbs 4:26). We are to find a job that we know we would enjoy carrying out. For if you hate your job, what’s the purpose of doing so then? If you screw up, never hesitate to apologize. For it shows that you’re growing and learning. We shouldn’t let ourselves commit the same mistakes again and again. And that applies in every facet of our lives.

Not In That Way

Annyeong! Sorry for being inactive for the past month. School works piled up, diverse requirements jammed and stress get the best of me. And uhh, well, my heart’s disposition is.. I don’t know how to put this. But I must admit, I’m finally beginning to push myself not to be too selfless when it comes to love and start thinking what do I really deserve.
Especially stop wasting my time and feelings for the wrong person. That’s why I’m opening my heart to others but still be wise and very careful at the same time. There’s this guy I recently met. At first, I was like: “Finally!” But and BUT, I don’t wanna assume anything yet. Too early for that. And of course, the past (almost) 2 years I became close minded and blinded with the wrong guy has taught me a lot.
Having said that, I promise myself not to let myself fall into the wrong person that will stir up trouble and painful conundrum into my heart later on again. Therefore, I shouldn’t let myself get attached to that guy I just met recently – yet. After all, I’m not yet certain if he likes me or he just want the both of us to be friends and just friends. Just gotta guard my heart and take it slow. If it’s meant to be, God will make a way for us to end up being together. If not, wag naman sana! Just kidding! Jesus, take the wheel! smile emoticon

Let’s carry on with my look for the day. To be blunt, this is apparently a back log. And obviously, I’m sticking out my nose with an all black ensemble, keeping it clean and not too over the top.

Annyeong lovely people! How’r you all doing? As for me, thesis days is starting to creep in and the implementation/practicum for our feasibility study will be two weeks from now. So I’m starting to get pretty busy.
In the past few weeks, as my random thoughts get to me, it just struck me how some people finds delight in hurting others and watching others suffer. I’m like, why? Don’t you have a decent life to live? For you to actually take time to hurt others? Whatever your reasons and intentions are, I tell you, stop it.
There are lots and lots of productive things we can revel outselling into without causing others to suffer. What good thing will you gain from that? Absolutely none, my dear! Maybe some of you might be puzzled as to why am I doling out this sort of things.
Well, I’m still in the process of moving on. I know it’s been a couple of years (almost!) since I first told myself to let go of the wrong people. But this year, I’m more than 100% serious about this matter. Especially that the guy I’ve been talking about in my previous posts is proving me so right on everything that my friends been telling me that I should stop chasing the wrong people and just eat my feelings. (Just kidding w/ the latter!) What I really meant was to let go and move on for real.

As for this look, perf for the sweater weather although I bet all of you will agree when I say the weather is indeed bipolar, eh? And so are the people around us. They come and go. Hahaha! And uhm, it’s February and.. never mind. I know all the pieces of this particular look is completely far from this month’s fuss but ugh, whatever!

Run On Love

baesqqqqqqq

Oh hello! After all the lazy hazy mood or festive shenanigans we revel ourselves into, classes & work resumed. But due to the Pope’s visit here in the Philippines, all of us enjoyed an extended super long vacay. As for me, since I only have classes during MWF, I had a 6-day vacay. And in the past few days, the harsh reality came crashing in front of me – again.

I would admit that I tend to be pasaway and you know the feeling when the clichΓ© “the truth hurts” and “the truth will set you free” slaps you right in the face to wake you up from something you can’t escape from. Some of us, or should I say, most of us refuse to face the reality and tend to fool ourselves with what we choose to believe which is basically a lie. Truth be told, I’ve been like that for a long time just recently.
So I ended up finding it hard even more to let go of people who doesn’t even deserve to be an issue in my life. That the ones who I invest too much effort, feelings & time are the same people who don’t even exert effort & take me seriously just like how I do to them. If some of you regularly read my blog posts, I know I already have heaps of posts about moving on & stuff. It’s not that easy to move on and they say there’s no formula for that.

But of course, if there’s a will, there’s a way. After all, it’s not my loss. It’s his. Ensuing on with today’s look, as we grow up, we tend to change our style preference, right? As for me, at first, I prefer the print on print formula and leggings that in my opinion now is too mainstream already. I go for the basic ones and dark hues which goes something like this:

Change Your Ticket

nnn

Annyeong! Today’s the end of 2014 & apparently the start of another year, (2015) which commonly most of us desire to have their fair share of aspiring to start anew and be the better version of ourselves. But very seldom that we stay true, consistently stick and live by those so-called resolution/s we engage themselves with.
New year’s resolution as most of us perceive it. When you really, really, (like really!) want a big change (in a good way, obviously) to take place in your everyday life, then do something about it. Because no one can ever help you change but yourself.
And in order for you to do that successfully, you have to think first of all your life goals (be distinct), formulate ways on how you can be able to pursue those & stick with it – with all your heart, soul & mind! What’s the sense of coming up with life goals if you’ll just disregard it afterwards? You’re just making fool out of yourself & end up getting worst than ever.

As for me, I’m not that serious with goals, resolutions and stuff before. But of course, as we grow up, we get to learn new things from experience & other people. And worst, from pain. So as 2015 starts, I don’t wanna ever be in the place wherein I always have to run after people just for them to stay with me. If you don’t have plans of staying, then so be it. I’m not anybody’s toy or pet dog that you can ignore and leave in the pedestal whenever you want. Hey, I’m human. I have feelings too. Having said that, I decided to bid farewell to 2014 and to old habits/ways and people that I utterly value but don’t deserve it, as well. Yes it’s hard. But with God, I know I can do anything. And so, goodbye 2014 & to the people I love but don’t deserve my time, effort & tears. Annyeong, 2015!

With this, as seen on my facebook account, I had my first photoshoot for 2015 & here’s the outcome:

Going Nowhere

Oh hello there! How are you all doing? I hope everything’s fine, especially to all my fellow countrymen, since Typhoon Ruby has recently came in & so glad it went out from Manila already. My prayers are with those families affected. Don’t you worry guys, God will never leave us nor forsake us. He is bigger than Typhoon Ruby and any other storm that anyone could ever encounter! Can I get an amen?

As for my case, well, I’ve been implementing this resolution that.. Uhmm.. Well, I admit, truth be told, it’s not what I wish to revel into but it’s bluntly what I have to do. It’s for my good and this is pretty much what I deserve. To stop running after people who don’t even bother to include or squeeze me into their daily routine. Busy or not, if a person is important to you, you’ll make time for them. No but’s and no excuses. No questions asked. Am I right?
And what makes it worst is I always get ignored & unappreciated. Almost everytime. What makes it even more heartbreaking is that the people who I exert too much effort & spends my time with the most are the ones who takes me for granted the most, as well. They perhaps think that even how rude or unappreciative they may be to me, I would be still be there for them.

As a matter of fact, in line with people taking me for granted, I’m still stuck with the guy who for the record, had hurt me the most but I loved the most. Ironic, isn’t? Well, sometimes, when the reality has slapped you multiple times, you’ll realize that it’s about time that you stop letting others pushing and pulling you around like you’re some toy in a toy store. And with that, start moving on with your life without them. It may be hard, yes it is indeed hard. But hey honey, guess what? No one’s gonna/can ever help you forget and move on but yourself. Who says it’s easy? But there’s no harm in trying, yes?

Running away is not always a sign of weakness, sometimes it proves how strong you are because it’s not that easy to run away from something your heart doesn’t approves of but you know it’s for the best. So for today’s look, I’m pretty much busy with school stuffs, diverse events and such. And I’m more than a hundred percent sure all of us gets excessively busy at times and with that, we sometimes feel too lazy to dress up grandly, right? So here’s one of my go-to look or perhaps, my too-lazy-to-dress-up-too-much look:

Such A Minnie (Meanie)

DSC_1163

Annyeong lovelies! Well, truth be told, I’m finding it hard to trim down my excessive eating & pigging out everywhere nowadays. Aside from the unexpected post birthday celebration-like buffet dinner with my two cousins, aunt & uncle from the US, along with Dad & bro, I’m sure none of you will make a dispute whne I say October, November & December are the best months of the year, yes? Celebrations, family gatherings & excessive shopping and pigging out here and there. So it’s pretty much the season wherein all of us are in high spirits, carefree & pretty much brisky about the holidays’ yingyangs. So it’s the season which people finds it hard to cut out that extra weight we acquire from pigging out too much, as well. Don’t we?

Personally, to be blunt, I’m currently struggling controlling myself from eating too much due to consecutive celebrations and going out. Not to mention, there are lots of November celebrants in our family. Then followed by next month’s feasts. Anyway, I think it’s obvious as to whom is my favorite disney character is, right? Minnie Mouse! Well, aside from the fact that the said cutie patootie character’s show is one of my favorite shows to watch back in my childhood days, along with other Playhouse Disney shows, Nickeledeon & Cartoon Network shows, perhaps, some of you might notice the fact that I have a huge fixation for ribbons, yes? Well, that’s why I love Minnie so much then!

I Like You

Annyeong! How are you guys doing? I had my birthday celebrated a couple of days ago. And we chose to eat dinner at Yakimix. At first, the latter had a constant dispute with Vikings Luxury Buffet. But the former reigned and of course, it made our tummies zany and came home with a dozen of donuts to munch the next day. Apparently, truth be told, I had my pre-birthday celebration last November 8 with my favorite auntie & brother where we also witnessed the ever fluffy, marshmallow-like, super adorbs Baymax courtesy of Big Hero 6 at Powerplant Cinemas, had two doses of TCB during the day and took the 12-inch Mighty Ton burger & huge milkshake, The Milky Way at The Porch by Casa Verde.

hhhhhhh

On the other hand, turning 21 was like a total different story for me. (OMG! I feel old already! *hides face*) Late at night, when we reached home, I came up with divergent realizations as to what the past year taught me. In my relationships with people, in particular. Maybe some of you might find me sensitive or whatsoever. (some of you who follows & reads my posts everytime/most of the time, if there’s any) But I’m just expressing my thoughts & feelings. Nothing’s wrong with staying true to ourselves, right? That’s better rather than pretending something you’re not.

In relation to that, facing and accepting the truth is better than making yourself believe on things that you want to perceive as the truth but you know there were all just lies. Like for example, you’re making yourself believe that someone you love will love you back someday. But the truth is, you know that person won’t. To be blunt with you, I experienced that just recently. If some of you read my previous posts you’ll understand well what I’ve been through with a certain guy (somehow). Having said that, it led me to another realization that we should not force things to happen that are not meant to be. Or else, reality will come & slap you right in the face with the truth. One thing I learned with all the excessive heartbreaks that I’ve encountered in the past (especially with a certain guy) is that we should not put our guards down way too fast & trust people just like that. For almost everything in this world is temporary. Including people and their feelings. A lot of guys out there may come into your life and make you feel you’re special to them. But only one of them, in the right time, are meant to stay in your life forever. So we should not make decisions just like that without thinking of the million possibilities that may happen afterwards. Expectations might kill you alive.

Personally, I’ve encountered those A LOT. People letting me down after all I’ve done for them and stuff. Oh please, I had too much. Then it hit me, why would I let me lose myself trying to hold on to people who don’t even care nor afraid of losing me? Reality taught me that, by the way. So we should open our eyes with what’s real rather than drowning ourselves with things that we just want to believe in. On the other hand, being a K-pop fangirl for the past few years, I must say, it translates on what I opt to wear. After all, as the cliche puts it, we are what we wear, isn’t?
