Change Your Ticket

aaaaaaa

Hello there! I will admit, truth be told, I intended to post this a bit earlier than today. But well, let’s say I’m still coping up with the changes that’s taking place in my life right now. It really fascinates me how things can change so fast in a very short period of time. I’m pretty sure most of you will understand me when I say some people don’t really ascertain yet how vital it is to really be picky as to whom they will meddle themselves with. (Which to be candid, I realized how important it is, just recently) I’m not saying you have to be that super untouchable one who just involve themselves with the people that have the same social status as they are and such. What I’m saying is that there’s nothing permanent in this world. Change is inevitable.

So you have to know who you really can depend on. Who’s worth it and who’s not. And you don’t have to be in a relationship just because most of the people around you are in it. It’s not like fashion that some people feel like they have to compromise with it. Although in my opinion, in fashion, it’s not like if it’s on trend, you are obliged to comply with it. What if it doesn’t fit you? After all, you are what you wear.

Same thing goes with relationships, my friends. It’s not like when you have those butterflies in your tummy doesn’t mean he/she is meant for you. Most of the time, you have to consider much more important things than kilig. When things get much deeper, the much significant question there is, is he/she someone you really deserve? Why would you waste time on someone you’re not certain of or on someone you can’t imagine yourself with in the future, right?

Just like what I’ve read in a couple of articles that I’ve read lately about not settling for someone/something less than great. And with someone you don’t deserve. If someone doesn’t treat us how we deserve, we shouldn’t accept their behavior just because it’s what we think we deserve. WE DON’T HAVE TO SETTLE. After all, why would we settle for loneliness? Because it’s a state of mind and it’s not some void to be filled up by someone else. Nobody has the right to infect us with negativity and doubt. There will come a point in life when we’ll get tired of having to prove ourselves and we’ll get sick of fixing things.

It’s not giving up or quitting; it’s realizing we deserve more. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with putting ourselves first, for once. The sooner we do that, the better. People will become strangers and distant memories. But we don’t have to feel guilty of removing toxic people from our lives. Not everyone you lose is a loss.

Proceeding with this particular look, this is what I wore when we went to Mount Cabuyao, popularly known as Sitio La Presa in the recently concluded famous teleserye, Forevermore. It was insanely foggy and cold there than the rest of Baguio and thus, I opted to wear winter-like structured clothes rather than with the thinner ones. Truth be told, I still feel the chills despite of wearing these clothes. And I still remained with my lazy dressing-kpop preference way of clothing on the pieces I wore.

Stronger Than You Know

Hello there! How are you guys doing? Pat on the back, I’m staying true to my goal of making up for the late posts I’ve convened recently.

Anyhow, dealing with the diverse changes that’s been taking place in my life now (I’ve mentioned it on my previous posts) and after I’ve internalized and had the time to process things that happened before, it made me realize how important it is to be wise and careful with the people you’re gonna invest into and who you must disregard and let go.

Like for instance, would you go for a friend who’s with you everyday but when trial comes or when you need someone to help you process your thoughts and weigh things that bother you, you can’t count on her/him? Or would you rather go with someone you don’t get to meet and be with everyday/frequently but you can always (like, always!) count on them whenever you need someone to talk to and they can always help you with anything? Truth be told, I would go with the latter. I have friends like that who I seldom meet but with just one click, they always put up with anything under the sun.

On the other hand, would you opt for a guy/girl who let’s say, excels on the same field of study as yours and you guys have the same fixation on many things but seems immature on certain things and doesn’t know yet what it’s like to be in a relationship and how to treat girls/guys right? Or would you go for someone who’s not fond of some of the things that you enjoy and used to doing (for example, he’s not fond of hanging out just as you do) and you sometimes find him/her too matured than you are right now but he/she helps you how to overcome those doubts and insecurities you have inside you, he/she knows how to handle relationships and he/she brings out the best in you?

My point is, we have to ascertain who are the ones who deserve to stay in our lives and the ones who don’t even deserve even an inch of us. Who to keep and who to discard before you develop an incredible attachment on someone and it’s too late to back out. Comprehending this after 21 years of living here on earth screams “Don’t be so shallow and stupid! Use your brain!” Suffice to say, we should act according on what we know rather than on what we feel. Don’t let your emotions manipulate your decisions wholly. Make sure you don’t let anyone take you for granted like I did before.

Upon speaking of maturity, it’s very timely that I’m wearing an vintage-y statement shirt like this. Teehee! πŸ˜‰ And this particular look shows my present color palette nowadays which to be honest, I think will somehow change as I enter the business world and bid farewell to my school uniform. Aww! *mixed emotions*

Baguio | Day 3

Okay, here we go again with my late posts. I’m really, sincerely, immensely, totally, certainly, exceedingly, absolutely, completely sorry. As some of you may know that I’m currently in the process of transitioning from being a student for so many years into being soon to be yuppie. Time flies so fast, eh?

Anyway, let’s proceed with our day 3 in Benguet, Baguio City which I insanely want so bad for someone to take me back there – NOW! The weather here in the PH is driving me nuts. It’s like the moment you step out of the house, sweat will start to say hello right away.

Waking up at 4am in the morning, we skipped breakfast (Uh, not really!) and went straight to the renowned and overhyped Sitio La Presa as seen on ABS CBN’s Forevermore, which is originally Mount Cabuyao and since we know for a fact that it’s much colder there than the rest of Baguio, we came to a decision to wear winter-like clothes. As we are on our way there, before the insanely breezy cold feels shed light on us, our eyes witnessed these sights.

As we get near La Presa, it’s getting colder and we forgot to bring scarf and gloves to lessen the chills we’re getting. For we honestly didn’t expect it would be that incredibly cold. My brother even wore shorts! Good thing, my aunt brought extra. When we reached La Presa halfway, we wanted to have the experience of walking all the way there and embrace the chills we’re getting and so we did. What we didn’t see coming was the muddy road due to the rainy weather last night. So it somehow lessen the purportedly fun of the walk we took.

We went to the actual location of Forevermore in Sitio La Presa and I had the chance to sit on the lover’s bench of Xander and Agnes. (the two main characters of the said telenovela) Then we walked around further and saw the location where Agnes’ family at La Presa plants as farmers.

Baguio | Day 2

Sorry for being late on posting this. I know I should have posted this a couple of days ago. Due to numerous job interviews I attended, I wasn’t able to post it in due time.

Anyway, let me start off with our day 2 in Baguio. We instigated our day having our breakfast at Cafe By The Ruins which we bluntly discovered from the movie, That Thing Called Tadhana. More details soon on my #BaguioEats post so you better keep your lines open, yes?

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

hh

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!
