A kiss is more than just two lips intertwining together. It’s a manner of sharing a part of your soul with another person who means so much to you, enveloping you both in a bond that nobody else can share.

Craving for some Nutella right now.

“My life is so miserable. I’m bored with it and I don’t know what to do anymore.” He kicked a pebble into the murky waters of the lake as the two of them stared at the rippling circles caused by the sinking.

“Well, that’s just sad.” She replied dryly as she stood beside him, careful enough not to lean too close.

She never could stand self-pitying people. Unable to hold her tongue, “So you just plan on being sad or do you intend to do anything about it?”

“What should I do?”

Stupid. “I don’t know. That’s up to you.”

He turned to her with a smile playing on his lips.

“Make me happy.”

It’s amazing how simple sweets for most people turn to delightful treats for kids out on the streets.

I took these portraits a few weeks ago for a photography contest during our Journalism week. The theme of the competition was inclined towards finding joy in tragedy and to be honest, I was completely clueless on what to do. So I decided to walk around the streets bordering the university. Dapitan and Padre Noval were crowded with students but it was the kids running around in the streets in tattered clothing that caught my attention. It was then that I thought, what better subject to capture than the genuine joy reflected in the eyes of these children? I knew it was a long shot, I gave it a try anyway. While my mind was trying to keep up with my camera’s shutter, a notion started to sink in. We tend to take things for granted and that’s a fact. Even I do. We are so preoccupied with trying to gain better things, consume larger portions of life, that we forget to appreciate what we have at present. I give the worst metaphors but all I can think of is that we are very much absorbed in wanting that scoop of Cold Stone ice cream we forget that sorbetes actually tastes good too.

There are already too many posts on the internet about appreciating what we have because others have nothing at all but observing less fortunate people around me did make me change my perspective in life. Maybe not all at once, just one tiny step at a time. 

Despite falling a notch short in bagging the top spot I felt like I’ve already won something that no medal can ever gratify. 

Believe me when I say that UST is beautiful, especially in summer.

Occasionally, we tell people to leave us alone but we never ask them to leave us lonely.

I like being alone but I never fancied being lonely.  

Happy mornings are usually the ones made up of appreciation and excitement over little things the moment you open your eyes. It’s the joy from simple things, like printed word, a short sincere note, the laughter of a child or an effort exerted by someone to make you smile that makes mornings worth waking up to.

We went for a little stroll around UP Diliman yesterday. I pigged out, as usual. It was my first time inside the campus and I enjoyed exploring the place. Diliman is actually my one of my ideal getaways in the Metro — spacious, filled with lush greenery, architecture that’s easy on the eyes. Did I mention that the quarter pounder is only 70.00Php? Yep, I’m definitely going back.  

i don't like how you write

@Anonymous

Hello anon! I don’t like how I write sometimes too. But that’s okay because that means I can always improve and experiment with my words. Anyway, you don’t have to like how I write. Nevertheless, sending this message must mean that you’re affected and that you really care. I’ll write a best seller someday, don’t you worry sweetie. You have a good day now :) 

Tonkatsu by Terazawa!

I’ve been dying to try Yabu with my friends months ago, though before I could rush to SM North my taste buds already fell in love with the dishes that Tonkatsu by Terazawa offers. I’ve always loved Japanese food so I was thrilled when I found out that we were going to dine there. Excuse me for being a pig but yes, I literally wolfed down cups of cabbage and Japanese rice (no regrets there). The pork was just the right combination of crispy and tender and the tonkatsu sauce reminded me of the days when my mom would cook those kind of food at home. Plus the genmaicha  definitely helped my metabolism afterwards. My personal take on this? 4.5/5 :)
