Random Snippets #12

Watsap por yu!?

This month has definitely kept me on my toes. Super super busy BUT I am not complaining. All the distractions kept me from thinking of a difficult yet fleeting moment from a few months back. Haaay, life!

I’ve been planning to write about some of the things I’ve been up to in more detail soon but na-sipagan lang ako magblog about a movie we’ve watched literally just now – The Write Moment. It’s a Filipino indi film which stars Jerald Napoles & Valeen Montenegro. This movie doesn’t have the typical pinoy movie twist we’ve all grown up to. Ang simple ng treatment. Not too fussy, not too dramatic. Ang simple ng story but, it sends an important message.

Napaisip lang ako, at some point we all wanted our happily ever after. We all got stuck on the idea to the point na we keep on looking for it from every person we love. I’m not saying it’s bad. It’s ok. It’s normal. And why would you get into a relationship na hindi ka naman masaya in the first place di ba? That’s what I appreciated in the movie. Kasi, hindi pwedeng masaya all the time. Hindi pwedeng nakangiti at nakatawa lang kayong dalawa 24/7. It’s not realistic. In the end, mapapa isip ka, nagkaroon ba ng substance? May naging katuturan ba yung puro happiness lang? Mas naging matibay ba kame? Have we even learned anything? Naging masaya nga ba talaga?

Sabi nga ni Eminem, snap back to reality. Naipasok ko pa talaga yan kasi yan lang naisip ko lol. Ayun nga, reality tells us na that is not what having a relationship is all about. Requirement yung mga trying times kasi it strengthens you and your jowa. It can reveal your true self and can bring out the best (or the worst) in you. Tapos, hindi ba mas sulit yung saya na pagtapos ng lahat ng unos, kayo parin.

Other reality though is, you learn na despite trying, may mga bagay talaga na won’t work. Yung tipong alam mo sa sarili mo na you did everything, you gave it your all. And as hard as it sounds, kelangan talaga minsan mag let go. Yung andami ko talaga nasabi hahah baka akala ng iba humuhugot nako lol. Pero yun nga, despite the heartbreak, it gives you chance to have a fresh start. Who knows, yung fresh start may kalakip na new beginning with someone else di bels?

Ang refreshing lang nung mga ganung story nadaldal tuloy ako. Naalala ko lang, bank pala ako mamaya tapos clocks go forward today so mabibitin ako ng 1 hours na sleep so babush na muna! Next time na yung next na chika ko. Taaaaaaaa!!

It’s the little things

You know how they always say the best moments happen when unplanned? I was just reminded by Timehop one of those awesome times.

Rewind to 1 year ago…

As we were starting to build our home together, one of the things that excite us is furniture shopping. We had just invested in a new set of sofa and our living room was slowly but surely coming to life and was just missing a centre table to match.

We didn’t want to spend a fortune over a new one so we went to Facebook marketplace for some secondhand items. I then found the Ikea table I was looking for for only 10 quid (versus the brand new price of 60); checked the map which wasn’t too far off, messaged the seller and immediately closed the deal. That same day, we scheduled to pick up the item and as it turns out, the actual address was not where we expected. It was far off and the roads felt like it was leading us to nowhere. I was starting to regret driving (well technically I wasn’t driving lol) all the way to their place but we then found the house and got the item; the family were just so nice and the table was like brand new so I guess it was a good deal after all. Before heading back, we also noticed that it was unusually sandy around plus there were loads of caravan around so we thought of checking where we actually were on the map which looked like a shore line. Went to drive nearer to what looked like water and lo and behold, we found this beaut.

Cool winds. Relaxing sound of the rippling water. Sunset. Orange hues. Talking and laughing about random things. Everything was just perfect. The moment was just perfect. It’s moments like these that makes you just appreciate the little things that makes life worthwhile you know? And it’s these little things that make my heart so happy. :)

Throwback Thursday: Fam Bam getaway

Morning after our wedding, we were (sort of) dragged out of our wits to go into a 6-hour roadtrip with the whole family. The thought that we’re all gonna bond is ecstatic but I’m not gonna lie, after all of the stress and exhaustion from planning to preparing to the actual big day, we were kind of in a zombie mode the whole day. But then again, we’ll be leaving again in the next 5 days so every moment counts.6 hours, 5 vehicles and threading through high terrain and one nasty landslide later, we arrived at my brother-in-law’s resort in Dinadiawan, Aurora.Ahhh, finally, the calm after a profoundly busy feat.

I’ve been craving for this kind of serene place for a while so instead of sleeping in the cottage, I decided to sleep outside and bask under the stars. Mama then decided to join and we just talked about random things till dawn… ❤️

Haaaay. I think I’m homesick but what’s not to miss? Also, it was such a pleasure getting to know and spend time with my new family. I am praying we could do this more often. I love you all! ❤️
