Summer time randomness #1. Charlene & I! :)
Check out our last picture HERE. Now look at us, all grown up!
Riza’s my first ever swimming friend. We’re so tight, you’d see us together always in every competition way back when we were still 8 years old. I could still remember her telling me how kilig she is seeing her crush, who was also a teammate. Imagine, we were so young then but already inlove. Haha. She quit swimming a few years after that. Now, she’s back, joins a lot of Triathlon and the like, and is a member of the Philippine Life Saving group. We met one day at the pool, all grown up, but still swimming our butts off! <3

My biological clock seems to be working properly now. I wake up early (for 5 straight days now) and not feel sleepy at, like I always do for the past years. Hope this is not just a phase! The only downside though is that as early as 10pm, I wanna hit the sack already. But oh well, wouldn’t trade the fresh air and the cool breeze in the early morn’.
Due to my well-functioning biological clock and my missing-the-water, I’ve been going to the pool for an early swim. It has been so long since I last swam and oh it feels so great. Been helping the team with the swimming clinic as well.
Thanks Kuya Harold for the pics! :D
Unswept for weeks. Don’t worry, it’s clean now. I’ve been a good girl. :)))
My signature surprise move: Petals Petals!
Chawi with Moms!
May 13, 2012: Happy Mom’s Day (II)!
Devised another plan aside from my simple surprise back at the boat. Glad Chawi and Ninang were such great accomplices that I was able to pull this surprise off. First time to be home on Mother’s day after about 2 years!
Went out to have a spa date later in the evening. Moms won a free foot spa treat due to their Mother’s day promo (picking coupons from a bowl). Lucky her! Unfortunately, no pictures for this.
Again, Happy Mother’s day, MOMS! You know I love you! :*
Not really a fan of the word “tsup!” but Mom’s a die hard Kapuso that I hear it in Eat Bulaga all the time. Haha!
May 13, 2012: Happy Mom’s Day (I)!
Moms was with me the whole time at Cebu that I wasn’t able to have a quick run to the mall to buy her a present. So this was the only “surprise” I came up with at exactly 12am on Mother’s day at the boat (my first boat ride after 4 years!) on the way to Iligan from Cebu. Pardon thy drawings!

Thought Bubble #3:
It was just about 9 in the morning. The day has just started that it’s too early to expect something out of the ordinary. But I was proven wrong when out of the blue, unexpectedly, I couldn’t believe whom I saw..that soon. Cebu is a small place. I knew we would eventually bump into each other sooner or later. But it’s just my 3rd day here and there it happened already. You know, that moment when you get to see someone whom you don’t wanna see? Imagine the chills and the awkwardness. That was what happened, at 9 in the morning.
Jumping up and down the trampoline-like bed at around 2 in the morning.
Thought Bubble #2:
We were just done talking over the phone and have said our goodnights already when I received a text. It’s Him! Shockingly, he left his pad at this time of the night and checked into a nearby hotel of sort coz…… wait for it—- there are rats inside their pad and he can’t stand it no more. Haha. I can not believe he’s that scared. He told me last Thursday that one of the scariest moments of his life was when they saw a rat, almost as big as a cat (or I don’t know. HAHA.) inside their drawer. He said he haven’t slept all night since the rat (which they trapped so it couldn’t get out) made scratching noise that was really disturbing. I thought he only meant it half true, but tonight proved me wrong. I’ve known him for almost 6 years but this is a first. The rats really did scare him. Bad rats. Bad!

On things spontaneous and vain and both, she’s my twin! Although most of the time I do the shooting and she does the posing. :)))
Yeah, almost the same outfit. Twins just like that! Settled on Ate Joy’s Blackberry since Kiss’ battery died too soon.
Thought Bubble #1:
I have been laptopless for days. Enough time to get me to think on how I would actually function my Tumblr without a laptop. Yes, I have my Tab with me (with internet) but posting long blog entries there (with photos, which I do
most all of the time) would take like forever. And I don’t wan’t getting mad at my innocent Tabby. So I devised a plan (which I think I should’ve already did ever since I started blogging) of having simple posts, of just typing in my thoughts sans the pictures. Viola, here’s to my first!
Arriving at Dada’s condo for the weekend made me excited. INTERNET + LAPTOP, finally! Imagine my excitement turning on the laptop just as we arrived (yeah, like I’m the owner and all) and opening the first thing I do all of the time…Plurk. But that excitement was sucked away in just a second reading one tragic news.
Bombing. In. Iligan. Again.
My Orphans barkada along with Him were actually falls tripping today (yeah, jealous me). He texted me (not long before I read the tragic news) that they were done from the adventure and were already heading to the city. To the city, where the bomb just exploded. Chills went over me and I dialed His number immediately. One missed call, two missed calls, three, still no answer. But hey, it rang, so I felt a bit of relief. Fourth call, He picked up. He told me they were okay (thank God) but here’s the catch, they were just 3 blocks away when the accident happened. Just 3 blocks away!!!
I can not think of any reason AT ALL why people would do this. Can’t they feel their hearts tingling when they are about to do it? That it will cost lives? That these lives can never EVER get back? Get back to their families, to their loved ones FOREVER? That these innocent people (again) have lives? Like them?
It’s sad to think that not so long ago, Iligan got wounded. A lot of houses, properties and lives were lost by Sendong. It’s crystal clear Iligan hasn’t recovered yet. Some families are still heart broken. Others, still have no homes. But now, this? Calamities, we can understand. Part of nature, part of life. But these, these are made by people. And that, I can not understand.
I used to tell my self when I was a kid that, despite it being so simple and small, I’m still so lucky to be living in one of the safest places in the world. No storms or typhoons I see on the news (but then there was Sendong), no bombings I hear in the Middle East (but then this, the one 3 years before this, and the one years before that). Now I start to think otherwise.
Prayers, I think is what we all need now. Prayers not only for the people who were involved in this tragic accident, but prayers for those who are blinded, confused and are consumed with anger and hatred in their heart, mind and soul. They need our prayers, the most. That somehow, they will be enlightened at the end of the day and realize these things will do no good AT ALL. That somehow, someday, we will all be united and peace (not you, not them, not me) will rule the world.
I’m really thankful for the safety of my family and friends. And I’m praying for the families of the people involved. God bless us all!
Reblogged. Awwww. I miss the old days! But but… I can not believe I wore that to a fieldtrip. :))))
