Friends. Relatives. Countrymen.

Sometimes in life, when you just have to sit down and wait for moments to happen, it's always nice to take pictures along the way.  Here are some snaps taken in the attempt to document the "idle" parts in life, which are, at some degree, make up most of the journey.

Mayan Prediction: True After All

27 minutes to go... and yes my internet connection sucked that night.
I'm typing knowing that a few minutes from now could be the end of the world.  I don't know if it's wise to spend these few remaining moments writing, instead of doing the more logical option which is to start contacting my love ones and express my gratitude that I have them in my life, you know, just in case the sky would start spitting out meteors.

Painting Faces

I notice, when I'm in the mood to paint, I'm usually emotional.  Either happy, sad, whatever.  So it's probably safe to say that I found another medium to vent out my feelings.

And it's great, you know.

It's therapeutic.

Mama's Girl.

Yes, and I'm not ashamed of it.  There are just many things in life that she could do well that I can't.  Cooking is one, and memorizing is another one too.  I regress when I'm with my mom.  And since I'm naturally inclined to that when she's around, I have thought of moving out so I could finally figure out how to live on my own.  Exciting, true.  Challenging, I might say.  But definitely, something I'm looking forward to.

Just how I am dependent on my mom? 

Mom and Me. Carbon copies.

How will you know if that person is the ONE?

Every time I get to talk to anyone who is seemingly happily married, I pounce at the chance of asking this:

How did you know that she's/he's the one?

Maybe it's my hopeless romantic side talking or my desperate-I'm-kinda-old-and-I'm-still-single woman anxiety kicking, but I just want to learn, and maybe, hopefully, I could at least detect if Mr. Right is somewhat nearby.

So I usually earnestly listen to their answer, in the hopes that I could figure out a formula to this finding-your-mate mystery.  But sure enough, I know that there won't be anything like that.  That it all boils down to decisions.  Decisions base on what logic and your heart tells you.  Yep! That just stripped off the magic and romance out of that.

I think I ask to just hear his love story, how they both met each other, and that's almost always something I would love to hear.  I just like the feeling I get from listening.  It's addictive.

It's weird because I slowly realize that as I grow older, I trust lesser.  I became more guarded.  That's probably what I learned in previous years, and it's just sad, holding it back, stopping yourself from giving into the romance, the love story.  

But you know, I still believe in that magical thing they called love.  I guess when it happens, it will happen.  And things will go tumbling down into a whirlwind of fantasy and enchantment.  It's just that in real life, it wouldn't be as smooth that you could say they would live happily ever after.  It does take work.

A labor of love, perhaps.

Beautiful Sight for a Beautiful Love.

Earlier today, I came to visit my aunt in the hospital.  Yes.  She's back, this time she underwent operation- a major one though.

Time and again, she would ask assistance from us whenever she wishes to go to the comfort room to take a leak.  Usually it would be me and their helper or if my uncle was there, it would be me and him.

In one of her trips to the comfort room, she took a look at her reflection at the mirror and examined her face there.  It was me and my uncle who assisted her this time.  When my uncle noticed that she was studying her face, my uncle, who was at her back then, held her and reassured her that she still looked beautiful. Overhearing him, I couldn't help myself and blurted out that they were so sweet with each other.   They both smiled at me for awhile after hearing my comment.  Shortly thereafter, my aunt inched her way to the toilet seat, while my uncle trailing behind her, holding her left arm for her support.

What a sight. What a beautiful sight indeed.

Birthday Bonanza

It didn't really go as I originally planned because someone, with that I meant my papa, sent me more budget so I was able to play it out exactly how I would want it to be - meaningful, intimate, with lots of food, and a bit grand - those are the elements I would have love to see in a party, and I'm pretty thankful I was able to do it with mine.  Well not really perfectly there, but almost.  Nevertheless, it was great considering I only started planning it 3 days before the day itself.  I did it my way and was really satisfied with everything.

Here are the pics from my party!!!
