Thou shalt repent in Manila, Philippines

On Being Domesticated


Nuvali Day

Sunday, August 26, 2018

Nuvali will now be a part of our lives. This is my brother's house, and since it's located down South, it seems impossible for him to live in it (for now). There are no concrete plans on wether he will migrate to Nuvali, but it's still a possibility.

Since he has a house there, we obviously have to come there once in a while. Rab and I enjoy long drives together and we enjoy coming to Nuvali because we can easily go to Tagaytay, or simply chill there. Nuvali is a lovely place. The Ayala malls and properties are a delight to stay at. That part of Laguna doesn't have much traffic, and I feel very very safe.

This particular house visit was a cut above the rest because Rodney and Ojela were there. I never imagined they'd agree to come, so I really enjoyed this day.

We left Manila at around 3AM to avoid the Manila traffic. We arrived in his village at around 7-8 in the morning, and then left for Solenad at around 9AM.

Conversations, food, laughter, and love - these made the tiring day very worth it. We got back to our house in Quezon City at around 6PM, and we were all dead tired. We all crashed in our living room. We all woke up around midnight and decided to have pares and sisig along Commonwealth. Unfortunately, I only have a few photos but to me, these are enough for me to remember this special day.

Seven Months Into 2018

I was feeling a bit emotional for the past few days and that's why I decided to open my blog, read my 2018 posts and remind me of how positive I was at the start of the year. After reading, I suddenly realized why I'm here on this platform - I'm here because of me. I'm here because I want to remember how I felt, how I was, or how I want to be. It just so happens that I get to share it with you too.

Fourth Time's A Charm

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

Upon my second visit to this wonderful country of Hong Kong, I told myself that this is a country I'd go back to over and over again. There's just nothing to hate. It doesn't require a visa, and air fare won't shoot up too high because it's not very far from the Philippines. Other than that, I will never get tired of their food. I love eating at Chinese restaurants here in the Philippines. There's no surprise that I enjoy everything I eat when I'm in Hong Kong.

Tyler's Cafe

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Part of quite a long list of resolutions, I've decided to visit cafes I haven't. Home brewed coffee and Starbucks may still be my go-to coffee shop when heading somewhere, but I'll be searching for a new cafe to work at or stay the whole day.

Keep On Improving

Monday, January 8, 2018

Just like most people, I want to have a list of things that I want to improve, change, or remove.

Over the past years, I know I have improved a lot. There are still a lot more to improve, and of course I wanna work on them the soonest. Change is constant, but it doesn't happen overnight. With this list I am creating for myself, I'm hoping I get to be reminded every once in a while.

With that, here's a list of shallow things I want to work on this year:

I want to take more pictures using my DSLR. Doing so, I hope I won't end up using my mirrorless camera less. I can picture short trips where I have both of them with me. Last year, the only time I used it was during New Year's Eve. Yes, I know, sayang. I want to use it more because I know it's a good camera and it can bring me back to the hobby I have not touched for a long time. I plan to have a 2018 Photo Book and I intend to put not only memories but also a bit of art.

I want to revive OPM. I know only a few new artists and that breaks my heart. Filipino musicians are good, and correct me if I'm wrong, more often than not, these artists are much more appreciated abroad. They're more appreciated by foreigners, not their kabayans. Admittedly, we have this impression that OPM is baduy. Some people would even say that if there are some Pinoy artists who do R&B, it's jologs and trying hard. I'm not a crowd, but I want to go back to appreciating OPM and be proud of it.

I want to learn how not to stress over the little things. I am not ashamed to admit that I am an overthinker. There are nights (like tonight) where I can't sleep just because there are too many things happening inside my head. Most of the time, I don't even know what they are. On the other hand, I get stressed so easily, I cry on the spot. I have had so much stress at work for the past few months and I just lost it. Whenever there is a problem, big or small, I don't have time to deliberate. I just..well, get mad, cry, or walk out. When Rab or my friends have finally placated me, that's the only time I approach the problem in the right manner. I don't want that anymore. I wanna learn how to differentiate the big and small things and I want to learn how to just let the small things go.

I want to finally accept the things I cannot change. This can be about friendship, work, relationship, family, anything under the sun. I am very sensitive and when it comes to people I used to be a

7 Days Into 2018

Every new year, do we really expect things to magically turn better? Or magically change?
