23rd

​Good day everyone! How formal can I get? Hahahaha! Anyway, I’m currently celebrating my 23rd year of existence. I must say that I’ve learned a lot of things this year. I made a lot of wrong decisions this year and I also realized a lot of things that happened because of my negligence in the past.

I may not be perfect but I’m constantly praying for God to guide me in every decision I’ll make in the coming days. I’m also praying that as I exert a lot of effort in applying/looking for a job, I would be able to finally get a job at least before the year 2016 ends. And I pray and believe that as I give my 100% best this time, I’ll be able to already grow consistently and gain new knowledge and experience along the way.

For today’s look, since I just turned 23 today (Omg, talk about adult-ing!), I decided to post what I wore on my cousin’s wedding last month at Fernwood Gardens with my family and my grandpa. As some of you might noticed, my usual color palette ranges from muted colors to pastel ones. This time, I opted to wear a white lace dress and black heels on that day. Not too over the top since I’m not one of the sponsors nor one of the special guests or whatnot. I also included some random photos that I adore during the said wedding.

And for some flair, I decided to come up with a street-ish boyish version of the look. I borrowed my brother’s jacket to conceal and salt away your attention to the factual size of my waist and convene a different feel on the overall look together with my “boy meets girl” cap I recently bought. Here it is!

#AllyTurns22

Oh hi lovely people! Funny as it seems, it’s actually friday the 13th today, it’s payday and yeah, it’s my birthday, as well. And so, I’m not that sure if we can go somewhere to eat. We’re actually planning to paint the town red at Sambo Kojin but then, I bet there are lots of people in there. So I think we’re gonna buy food outside and celebrate for the meantime at home. And Sambo Kojin would most probably be on the 15th after church. And as for my officemates, well.. perhaps, I will buy a giant pizza for everyone to be zany of and treat my closest friend/s somewhere.

Anyhow, as I grow a year older today, I came to a steadfast decision to abide with an action plan towards self betterment. Here’s some of it:

Now that I’m 22, I will.. focus and divert my attention things and people that will help and motivate me to put my best foot forward in everything I will do.

Now that I’m 22, I will.. love myself more and no matter how hard it may be, I will move forward and let go of those people who didn’t even hesitate to leave me behind.

Now that I’m 22, I will.. make sure to be adnascent and not complascent with what I have right now and vouch for more blessings and miracles to take place in my life as I go further.

On the contrary..

Now that I’m 22, I will not.. let myself be stuck on things that won’t contribute on self growth and people who don’t intend to stay long and came just to filter negativity on my heart.

Now that I’m 22, I will not.. allow fear take over me in times of despair but trust that God will never leave me whatever happens.

Now that I’m 22, I will not.. waste my time forcing myself for people to value me as much as I value them. If you don’t want me in your life, and so be it. I will never be that girl who will force you to stay over and over again and beg for your attention like a lame dog.

Having said these, I really hope and pray this year will be a year of continuous learning, growth and blessings will overflow as I turn a year older and the fact that I’m not a teenager anymore, for real. Yeah right. 🙂

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?

Sans Pareil Confidant

Since I was 4 years old, in view of the fact that my parents worked abroad back in our early years, we grew up with our amorous aunties, uncle & assidous grandparents. And so we acclimatized in a exceedingly congenial compound wherein our benevolent relatives in my mother’s side resides.

Hence, I got tremendously keen on my cousins, especially to the other only female in the bunch, Joan. She’ve been my pick-of-the-litter pal since the world began. Although, we had scarce misunderstandings at times, we constantly find ourselves together. And whenever we’re together, lackluster moments have never been in the cards! We enjoy each others’ company all the time. And when I say all the time, I MEAN IT! 🙂

As a matter of fact, our parents/grandparents periodically gets mad at us whenever we’re together (at times) because they say, the moment we sit next to each other, it’s like we become strident suddenly. Maybe because we chatter and roll in the aisles like there’s no tomorrow. Oh well! We grew up together, that’s why! And 3 days ago, it’s her 20th birthday.

Moreover, I felt this day is the apt time to post this photos we assimilated last New Year’s Day. There are only a few ones who are considered edible of posting. Here are those:

 

 

What do you guys think? 🙂

My Dearest Grandpa’s 77th. ♥

6 days ago, my dearest grandpa or “papa“, aw what we fondly call him since we’re still a kiddos back then. And we’re undeniably beholden that my lolo was still alive and he turned 77 last Monday. And with that, we celebrated his birthday and painted the town red.

Here are some of the food that we ate last Monday:

(Sorry blurred.)

 

Hope he’ll have mooooore birthdays to come! #InJesusName #Happiness
