Dying Friend

Me: I've been feeling quite tired these days. 

Friend: Yeah, you also told me that while you were in hk.

Me: Hmmm, right.  I think I'm dying...

Friend: WTH

Me: Lol, I'm joking, of course.  I'm not afraid to die though... I mean, I've tried living and I can say that I did live pretty well, not as exciting as I've wanted it to be, but hey, it wasn't all bad.  Maybe after I've tried falling deeply, crazy, in love, then I can die. 

that and having a baby...

and being successful in business and have made my parents and friends proud of me...

hmmm...

Who am I kidding.. I don't want to die!!!!


Friend:

My Mind is a Big Joke: Shower and Dating

Dating Site


Tell us something about yourself.

I've got the looks of Vanessa Hudgens
the sex appeal of Angelina Jolie
the body of Jessica Alba
the young vibe of Jennifer Aniston
the charm of Kate Hudson


When/If we see each other... try not to expect too much.



 PS: This thought cracked me up for minutes while in the shower. Oh well, another beautiful day with myself.

Slurping Pho like Crazy



I've had many embarrassing moments in my life.  Some of them I wouldn't dare telling a single soul about.  They haunt me in my dreams and in my waking times.  I don't know why these moments seem to happen more frequently lately.

For some weird reason, I don't have a clue.  But here's what I know... there's always a rainbow after the rain, and I'm just itching for my redemption to come.

Ok, so let's talk about the picture.  Let me introduce you to pho, a traditional vietnamese delicacy, which is just made by boiling different spices and beef for 8 hours, drowning rice noodles just few hours before serving and then eat them with mint and fresh mongo sprouts on the sides.  I know this because I made one before.

It's delish!

So the story went like this.  It was 4pm and my father was tagging me along as he does his meetings with his suppliers.  The last one he would meet for the day was held in Pho Hoa, a Vietnamese restaurant here in Trinoma, Manila.  One table for my father and his supplier, and adjacent to that was for me. 



It was 4pm, and I have not eaten lunch yet.   As soon as the bowl of soup landed on my table, I wasted no time and started to slurp my way down to bottom of that bowl.  It was out of my head that I was munching it ridiculously unpoised for a 29 year old woman.  All I could think about then, was that my mind was screaming that the soup tastes so damn good and that I should eat it fast, like super fast, and so I did. LOL

It just dawned unto me that it was that bad, when my father made this side note "you aren't so hungry, are you?", more so when the supplier said if I wanted to get half of his sandwich.

ok facepalm moment coming.

And BOOM there you go!

How to live a Simpler and Happier life by Bo Sanchez

I have just finished reading Bo Sanchez' book on how to live a Richer life.  If you don't know him yet, he is a leading motivational speaker in the Philippines and has written a lot of best sellers, the one I read being one of them.

From my previous posts, it's obvious that I had been in a rut.  And so I'm trying to form a ritual to read uplifting books whenever I'm in that state, thus what happened this afternoon.

Before I forget all lessons that I've learned, I feel the need to share them all to you.

That's just how much I love you guys.

So here's the drill.

According to Bo, a life that's lived very simply is ideal.  Simple is defined as learning to live within your core being, and your core would have to consist of the things that really mean most to you examples are your family, health, God and what not.  Learning to concentrate on living within these essentials makes you prioritize easier.

I've also learned that living a simple life means having to make do of what you have, and not longing for things you really don't need.  It also makes you save more, which was really continuously pressed on several times in the book.  Set aside 70% of your money to everyday expenses, and the rest you invest.  He suggested 3 categories where you should invest your money to: 10% back to tithes, 10% you invest in paper documents(stock, mutual funds etc.), and 10% on your relationships with people in your inner circle.

All in all, I've read some of his books before, and I must say that many salient points were mentioned consistently which is live simply, plan and invest

I hope you find this post helpful. :)

What I do when I get Depressed?

1.  Go out with friends.  If you are no where near them, go online, chat them and ask for virtual hugs.  Believe me, it's better to none. 

2.  I head out in the social scene.  The noise outside will drown the not-so-friendly noise inside my sometimes fucked up mind.

3.  I get a sudden appetite for ice cream.  There's nothing a good peanut butter banana from Dairy Queen can't repair.  Problem now is when the ran out of this. 

4.  I exercise.  I do the 4minute workout.  It makes me feel like I've done myself tons of goodness, even if I just exercised for 4 minutes.

5.  Read a good book.  A feel good one.

So there are my rituals when I don't feel quite on track.  Actually what I really do is open facebook and browse through it, but I'm battling it and divert more on productive ones, one of which I missed out on adding on the list is writing.

Sorry everyone, just post valentine's blues kicking in.  Single lady rant.

What to do when Depression Strikes






when air enters in lungs and seem to stay there longer
 when the heart seems sunken and seems to remain that way forever
  when frowns keep showing and seem to gravitate in that lowly corner
   when eyes stopped shining and seem to have stopped getting brighter
    when the body seems lump and seems to be getting paralyzed in every second and minute

It's times like these that the mind needs to work on to be more positive and the body needs to move itself to feel more alive, to be more alive.

And when it is so hard to take the mind off the pit, it's the body's job to do the whole work.

Sometimes, we have to drag ourselves to just do the things we think can make us happier.

Stop the feels and start doing something, anything that would solve the problem, and if clueless as to what is that, just do anything.

This Artist just Blew me Away!

Will she be my new favorite?

 
Tightrope is a great single, but I'm on the fence with regards to her other songs...
 

But it's always refreshing to listen to new beats.
