Another Friend's Wedding

My friend Rochelle got married to her long time beau one fine day in April 2011. It was a beautiful wedding witnessed by the couple's closest kin and friends. I was one lucky lady to be invited to grace the special event.

The wedding was solemnized in Sta. Ana Parish Church along Guerrero and Sta. Ana Streets and reception followed at the Regency Hotel just within the city center.

To Mr. and Mrs. Arienza, my best wishes for a very blissful and successful marriage.=)

A Temporary Relief

After taking the challenges in my speaking and written tests last weekend, I was temporarily relieved. Tensions have subsided and I'm back to becoming calm and worry-free. How did I fare my exams? I was confident with the speaking part though there was a slight twist in some of my answers. It depends though if the interviewer was satisfied with how I was answering her questions. The written tests, on the other hand, was okay but still I am not confident if I got my answers right. As of this very moment, I am discreetly nervous. Results will be out after two weeks and I am just keeping my fingers crossed.

Your Relationship Status

I've just learned that you're officially in a relationship. I knew you were already but did not just update your social network info. However, last night you made it known to the world that you're in a relationship with somebody I of course do not know personally. Its impact on me? Not anymore great. Why? Because I knew I never existed and you never were. We've just known each other virtually and these eyes of mine had never saw your face for real. But despite that, I still made myself proud knowing that I was once your virtual great friend, someone you admitted that you found comfort with with talking, and someone who knew all your fears but had encouraged you to beautifully deal with life. Too bad that friendship came to an end for that unacceptable reason of yours. Right now, I wish you happiness. I wish you value your relationship with your recent girlfriend. I wish you grow up to be the man you want to be - a man without fears, a man always ready to conquer the world despite all the obstacles that may come along.

I knew one day, you would look back and remember me - my words, and my person and the influence I made into your life.

Friendship Turns Sour?

I have known you for quite sometime. But I have known you much deeper from the day we worked together in a certain area. I never had any negative thoughts about you. I was just observant on how you're dealing with everybody and the world. I think I gained your trust because you told me things I never thought you would share. I apologize though if sometimes I confront you for things you failed to appreciate in yourself. I often tell you to forget about those painful heartbreaks. These people especially guys, didn't deserve to have you in the first place. Even if I don't directly say it, I am very much concerned about you especially in the realm of relationships. The times that we're always talking, I feel proud myself because I knew I am trustworthy. When you also need silence, I just respect that.

However lately, things have turned out differently. I could not exactly identify where did I go wrong. It even worsen knowing that we're not talking like we used to plus the fact that I can't exactly tell where did I go wrong. I used to think that maybe, I am just too noisy at that time or perhaps you're not just in the mood. If it was about something that I've said, I can't exactly recall which part of it did piss you off.

These days, I realized I may not be really a friend to you.
Because if I were, I would have known the truth why you turned sour.
And everything would have been like how it used to be.

Finally, I only have this to say:
I did never do anything to disappoint you.
In case I may have hurt you in a way, I terribly am sorry.
For now, I do respect the gap between us.
Only TIME can tell as to where this friendship would lead to.

Girl Bonding with My Friend

She's my high school friend. After high school, we less saw each other. Later I've learned was she got married to a foreign national. Whenever I go home to my hometown, I could not remember her going home even on special occasions. Later did I learn that she now stays for good with her family in another Asian country. It is only through Facebook that we found each other. =) Thank GOD really for FB and aside from me, she also rekindle her friendships with our other high school friends.

Last month, she went home with her two young lovely daughters in tow. I really appreciated her having to travel on long flights with still small kids. Her eldest is 5 and her youngest is 2. I've learned that her eldest is already responsible for herself. During her vacation here, I was more than glad that she found time to accommodate and see me despite her busy schedules. On one particular August day, we met up and spent hours together where she termed it as a "Girl Bonding Night". Indeed it was a girl bonding night because we had dinner just the two of us at Trellis 'N Vines along F. Torres and we savored the tasty and juicy baby back ribs including the veggie and soup we ordered. After getting our tummies filled, we went to K1 Spa and pampered ourselves with their special foot spa and massage. It was really nice because my tired feet was pampered again after a tiring day's work. We spent for more than an hour inside the spa. It wa already past 10.00pm when we went to Cups and Lowercase, a bar and a coffee shop and we spent more hours there until 12 midnight. That "Girl Bonding Night" we had was one of the most relaxing moments I've ever had in my whole life without having to think much of the responsibilities I have to deal with in my everyday life. =) Really thankful for this wonderful friendship I shared with Mrs. H.Y.. 'Til our next bonding with some of our batch mates!=)

It's PayDay!=)

The most awaited moment has finally arrived and it's already payday! Actually been waiting for it since I still got financial obligations at hand. Bills. A minor credit which I did something beneficial is also amongst them. Whoa! Really such a kind of relief that we did get what we truly deserve. Now my pocket is happy, hoping this will last for many days before our next payday again.;)

I So Want To Travel (Again!)

Yes. I so want to travel again and this time I'd like it to be up north again! I wanted to embrace the beauty of nature in Northern Luzon. Perhaps a trip to Olongapo or even to Baguio will do. I was browsing on FB one time and I got hooked to an agency (sorry forgot its name) that takes tourists to places at an affordable package. I even liked their page on FB. Now I am contemplating bout taking myself to any of their nature trips and hopefully I could have the chance to be part of their journeys. Target date? I want it before the year ends. I hope I could really fulfill this longing of mine.

Silent Feud

This is how we are these days. Reasons? I never had an idea. I was just surprised when after all the silence incurred during our last shift at work together, I found out that we're starting not to talk. In my case, I plead not guilty for it. I just didn't bother to not talk to the person because I wanted to give her the space she's needing but I didn't expect it would last for how many days. What does her silence did to me? I got my share of paranoia. I just can't help thinking why. I do not want to create an issue out of it but somehow everything's out of the box as if we're on a top showbiz headline. For now, I am keeping my fingers crossed. I am not guilty. I am still hopeful that everything's gonna turn out right.

Too Little Time

I will be taking an exam this month. I am still unprepared but I already did file for the exam that's happening in the next two weeks. I know I am less prepared but I can't afford to spend another one month just waiting for the exam to be realized. I want to free myself from my worries and anxieties. Despite the less preparation I got, I still am positive that I could pass my exam.
