God Came In Last Night and Re-arranged My Life

19 Apr

Most of my blog posts these past few months were about my love life, about Jon and about how happy my life WAS when I met Jon. The relationship we HAD was real, it was different from the previous relationship I had. It began unexpectedly and suddenly ended.

We shared 10 months together, 10 months of happiness, challenges, learning, and experiences. It was not a bed-full-of-roses love story, but I should say- that it was real and worth-remembering.

Last night, we decided to let go. It was hard and painful. It was something I thought would never happen to us. I believed in “us”, I believed that we would surpass all trials and we would have a happy-ending story. I believed- but that was it. I’d rather keep the reasons of our break-up, I respect and will always respect him and what we had. We talked for more than one hour, we were crying and we were both in pain. And, everything reached its finale.

When I decided to commit myself to him, I was happy to let my dad and family know about it. That same scene happened again last night, but I was crying- that was the only difference. I picked up our Magicjack and shared the sad news with my Dad. I was crying while telling him what happened. My Dad-who never ever fails to understand everything was with me last night (he always is). I wanted to keep everything to myself but I was dying in pain, I was crying- tears I couldn’t hide. I knew that telling my family about what happened was part of the challenge and to start off, I faced it and informed my sisters. They were good in hiding their emotions (not like me), they comforted me and became my walls, I knew they were in pain too.

Another chapter has ended. I know I have long way to go, I need to pick myself up, one by one. I know myself well, I’m sure there will be lonely times, but I’ll get by. God is with me, and He will never leave my side. He came in last night to re-arrange my life. He has better plans for me, for Jon, and for all of us. I know, in time, I will be happy again. I don’t want to dwell in the past and let hatred win over me. God has given me many blessings to be thankful and grateful for all the time. They say moving-on is a process, and yes it is, a long one indeed but I God will never fail to guide and guard our hearts, we just have to have faith in Him.

To Jon: I don’t have regrets and I will always keep all the good times we had. Wishing you happiness and more blessings to come. Never lose your faith in Him. Thank you for being part of my life. Take care of yourself!

To my family, friends: thank you for everything! I am blessed because I have you all with me. Through joys and sorrows.

To myself: be strong, move forward, and be happy! 🙂

It Could Have Been Better If You Were With Us.. :)

18 Apr

Last weekend, we went to Pina Colina, Tagaytay to celebrate our 27th birthday (I have a twin sister fyi.. ^^.). My Dad reserved a place for us as his birthday present for us. It could have been better if you were with us Daddy! We love you! 🙂

Here are some of the photos 🙂

Sunday :)

6 Mar

Spent the day with Hun, Friends, Family, and food 🙂

Just want to share some of the photos… 🙂

Simple pleasures! 🙂

Good night everyone! 🙂

Photoshoot with Hun :)

4 Mar
  • One fine afternoon
  • DSLR Nikon D90
  • Photoshop cs5
  • Jon had to pose in front of the lens several times for these different projects 🙂 He enjoyed the pose-there-pose-that a loooot! 🙂
  • I had hard time because I didn’t use our Tripod when I should have 🙂 Advise: if you want to try merging photos, using a Tripod will make your life easier. Remember that the primary secret of PHOTO MERGING is to get same BACKGROUND LEVEL… meaning, same height, same distance, and same surface. 🙂
  • I didn’t use our Tripod because I didn’t know where my sister put it…haha! 🙂
  • I posted these photos via Twitter and my followers love ’em 🙂

Which way to go? Conti’s muna! :)

26 Feb

Day 1:

Congratulations to Jon for getting two job offers! 🙂 He was offered a new job by Stellar and Microsoft (until now, he doesn’t  know which one to choose) 🙂 I, on the other hand, was offered a new job too, but same thing with me… (I still don’t know which way to go..) confused much? 🙂

Well, we had an unbelievable day at Stellar. The exam was pain in the head… promise! It lasted for like 3 and a half hours, with no breaks in between. We finished and passed the exams (aba dapat lang, kalerki ha!) at around 7:30pm. We were even asked to go back the day after for a final interview. We were so drained and helped ourselves home. We were starving to death so we hit the shawaramahan nook near our place where we had Beef Sisig, Shawarma Rice, Bulalo. Sorry I wasn’t able to take some shots. Imagine how drained I was that day. 🙂

Day 2:

We went back to Stellar the day after. We passed the final interviews and we were given job offers too. But it took us 9 looooong hours again, yes NINE NOT-FUNNY HOURS!!! -.- My back pain killed me, our tummies were starving, and we both lost our patience and sorry but we ended up sharing not-so-good feedbacks with each other.. (sa aming dalawa lang naman…haha!). After the torture, we decided to treat ourselves and had a luscious dinner at Conti’s. After the dinner, we both found ourselves re-charged. We went home and had a much-deserved rest. 🙂

Trivia:

I almost failed the Typing Test.. haha! 🙂 who would’ve thought that a blogger and a freelance web designer like me- who’s used to codes, letters, and all that…almost failed!? hahaha! Just imagine how nervous I was. I type fast but I must admit, I hit accuracy at times. 🙂

What we had at Conti’s?

We had Roast Beef in Mushroom Sauce, Chicken Ballotine, Buffalo Wings for the main course;  and Mango Bravo for our dessert!

What do I suggest?

their Baked Salmon is a must-try! 🙂 My all-time favorite. I skipped it that night because I wanted to try something else, and I didn’t regret it! 🙂

Their menu offers a lot, and they’re all good! 🙂

BEFORE we touched our table utensils! 🙂

and... AFTER... haha! 🙂

Yummy Buffalo Wings

Our most loved Mango Bravo! 🙂

One Night at Conti's 🙂

He Loves ‘Em

17 Feb

Around two or three weeks ago, while Jon was busy watching tv, I got up and prepared breakfast for us. I opened the fridge to look for anything to munch on, and then I saw our Christmas ham- patiently waiting to get cooked and liked. So I got it, let it cool while preparing French toasts and cups of hot chocolate. After 10 minutes, I fried the meat, put some sweet sauce on it, got ’em, tucked them in the French toasts I made beforehand, and pressed them with Home Made (the brand of mayo we use at home) mayonnaise.

It was a breakfast-on-bed. Jon, tasted them and he “loved and loves” em! 🙂 From that day on, Jon would always look for them. He even brought their Christmas Ham yesterday so I could make hamonado sandwiches for him. Yesterday, I used Pandesal- Jon brought some too from their Pandesal nook (Pan de Amerikana). They were good! 🙂

8 months and counting

16 Feb

Jon and I don’t celebrate monthly (monthsaries- that’s how some call it). Yes, with our previous relationships we would celebrate it, I mean, everyone had a chance to!

But today, I am very happy that we’re on our 8th month together! 🙂 We’ve been through a lot of challenges, and at the end of each day, we always see ourselves happy and better persons because of each other.

4 months to go and we’ll have our first year anniversary- something that we’ll definitely celebrate! 🙂

Hun, thanks for everything.. I am happy that I have you ! I know we have many plans and we’ll fulfill them all, and we’re gonna stay together until we get old! 🙂 You amaze me, everyday! 🙂 I love you soooo much! 🙂
