Thank You for giving me someone I can lean on everyday. Someone that I know will be there even though we’d fought so many times. I couldn’t imagine my life without my younger sister, specially that I have three younger brothers who I really love but annoys me most of the time. And even though we don’t share or spill our deepest secrets to each other, we always try to understand our different situations. I hate it when she suddenly cries to me and I couldn’t do anything but comfort her. I never realize until now that when people hurt her, they actually hurt me more, because I never wanted to see my sister to be in a place I never wanted to be into. Anjanette and I are not only sisters by blood; we are soul sisters, and I will always be beside her through thick and thin.
It’s official, I don’t have any term break. It was so hot yesterday morning and I never thought that it would rain last night or even today. I spent half of of my day yesterday with Jieno, because it was holiday and we wanted to spend our monthsary together. We postponed our plans of going to UP because of the scorching weather and spent the whole day hanging out with my family instead. Jieno left my house around 3 in the afternoon, while my family were getting ready for our family dinner.
We decided to eat our dinner in Mall of Asia because it is near my condominium and besides, we haven’t tried all the restaurants there. We went to Yabu and we were very fortunate that there weren’t a lot of people even though it was holiday. The food was great and I would totally come back with Jieno for our next date in Manila! Anyway, after our dinner I asked my father if our family could try bowling because we haven’t tried it yet even though we spend a lot of time in Eagle Ridge before. My father agreed and our whole family with our kasambahay played bowling the whole night. We decided to leave around 10 pm and we were shocked that it was raining so hard. My mother even predicted that there will be a suspension, and tadah! it came true.
I wish for no more suspensions of classes because I want to pursue my plans this coming september. Let us all pray for good weather! stay safe everyone. <3
I. ”What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright” - All of me
II. “I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, ‘cause I’m already falling
I’ll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I’m home” - Arms
III. “But I’m holding on for dear life, won’t look down, won’t open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, ‘cause I’m just holding on for tonight
Help me, I’m holding on for dear life, won’t look down, won’t open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, ‘cause I’m just holding on for tonight
On for tonight” -Chandelier
IV. “Never know how much I love you
V. “She’s up all night to the sun
I’m up all night to get some
She’s up all night for good fun
I’m up all night to get lucky” - Get Lucky
VI. “I was a quick-wit boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
Then when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere” - Iron & Wine
VII. “My old man is a bad man but
I can’t deny the way he holds my hand
And he grabs me, he has me by my heart
He doesn’t mind I have a Las Vegas past
He doesn’t mind I have an LA crass way about me
He loves me with every beat of his cocaine heart” - Off to the Races
VIII. ”Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I’ll set you apart” -The Scientist
IX. ”All I am is a man
I want the world in my hands
I hate the beach
But I stand
In California with my toes in the sand
Use the sleeves of my sweater
Let’s have an adventure
Head in the clouds but my gravity’s centered
Touch my neck and I’ll touch yours
You in those little high-waisted shorts, oh” - Sweater Weather
X. ”Yeah I wish I’d been a, wish I’d been a teen, teen idle
Wish I’d been a prom queen fighting for the title
Instead of being sixteen and burning up a bible
Feeling super, super (super!) suicidal
The wasted years, the wasted youth
The pretty lies, the ugly truth
And the day has come where I have died
Only to find I’ve come alive” - Teen Idle

Hello people, how was your week? I’m officially 19 last Tuesday and as you all know, I decided to celebrate my birthday for four days with the people I really love.
Tuesday - My father asked me and my sister if we want to celebrate our birthday or just eat dinner with the whole family. We both chose the latter one because my parents bought a car for my sister’s 18th birthday and I don’t want to spend more money just for our birthday. Our family loves buffet restaurants but I asked my father if we could try to visit Resorts World or Solaire for a change. Unfortunately the traffic was pretty crazy these past few weeks that my father decided to pushed through to our first plan. We ate our dinner at Buffet 101 after my class and of course, the food was the bomb! After eating at Buffet 101 we decided to roam around Mall of Asia and shop for new clothes.
Wednesday - Ellis, Plinky, Andhei and I ate our lunch at Yellow Cab, District in Imus. We did some catching up and talked about our next trip together on their semestral break! We are planning for an overnight stay here in my condo and I cannot wait for these plans to push through. After my lunch with my sisters I went straight back to Manila because my sister planned to celebrate her birthday with her block mates and friends at Agenda near Pedro Gil at 10 pm. We played beer pong, but mostly I ate sisig and french fries, lol. We decided to leave Agenda around 4 am and ate our breakfast in McDonalds.
Thursday - Jieno went here in Manila just for me. Thankfully, it was holiday because he didn’t get the chance to celebrate my 19th birthday with the family because of his schedule. We ate lunch together and I told him that it’s holiday on Monday. I asked him if he can tour me in UPLB on 25 and he agreed! He warned me that the weather in LB can get pretty rough but I don’t care, as long as I’m with him, it will be fine.
Friday - Jophie and I ate our lunch at Bibimbab beside my school and it’s our second time to eat there together. The place is perfect for studying or if you want to chill. Though the food is kind of expensive, it’s totally worth it! I told her what happened last Wednesday with our other friends and our plans for the coming semestral break. We also went to a salon and both asked to get a full bangs. It didn’t look good on me but no regrets! It will grow back soon hahaha.
I really want to thank all the people who didn’t forgot to greet me and my sister. Specially to my friends who had time for me even though our schedule is pretty messy. This week has been very busy for me and there are tons of blog posts I haven’t posted! My food diary and hauls will be posted next week guys. I promise <3
Strangers often ask my age because personally, I look like I just graduated high school. It was also very frustrating because people often doubt what my age really is, even though I show them my ID. Sometimes, people even thought that I am younger than my sister. Anyway, it took me a day to search for the right length that suits my face and the hairstylist who cut my hair didn’t disappoint me! Choosing between digital perm and cutting my hair wasn’t hard for me. I really wanted to get my hair permed because I want a new look before my birthday and it was really hard for me to let go 5 inches of my hair. Unfortunately, my budget wasn’t enough, so I decided to get a long bob instead because the hairstyle is kind of in this year!
What I love about my new look is that I can still curl it and it’s 10 times easier now because it’s shorter. My sister even told me that my hair made me look like my age, and now that I got the haircut that I like, I’m planning to dye my hair next week. What colour should I choose? Help me decide! :-)
