I  was browsing my albums when I saw these not-so-old photos of me and my gorgeous niece. We’re able to form a strong bond despite our 5-year-gap. She’s my shopping, barayle, movie, and lakwatsa buddy. She’s also my companion whenever I feel like pigging out and cam whore-ing. We absolutely get along because she’s the only person whom I can be with during a non-stop shopathon; besides, we both agree that shopping is really the best cardio. Hahaha! It’s just nice to have someone whom I can always count on, and I also like the fact that I can go crazy about life when we’re together. She just lets me be myself. I mean, she lets me decide on my own yet she never fails to give me some words of wisdom. I do love her more than Lee Min Ho, Harry Potter, Candace Bushnell, baked macaroni, pizza, books, shoes, UST, etc. Hahaha! But seriously, I love her so much. We may not see each other often but deep in my heart I know that the friendship we’ve built will never, ever fade.

P.S. Good luck on your LET! Bring it on, alam kong kaya mo yan :) Dapat pumasa ka ha para naman mailibre mo na ako sa isang posh Makati club and hindi na tayo sa plaza magtiyatiyaga na maki-bayle every fiesta! LOL

Inevitable Failures

‘’A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.’’

This old adage only proves how significant failures are to one’s journey. Many are afraid to commit mistakes but one can never deny that it is unavoidable. Victory cannot be easily achieved without failing. Some of the common failures that teenagers encounter are the failure to make their parents proud, failure to excel in their chosen college programme, failure to do their best academically, and the failure to make their lives memorable and worth living. Failure pertains to the lack of success, and the inability to perform an expected action but it extends to that because it can improve one’s self to be a much better, stronger, and wiser person.

Failure might be really hard to handle for those who are competitive since defeat is unusual for them. They always want to be on top. They might also be depressed and even consider themselves unlucky and unworthy because they failed. However, failure is also a way to be a better person in a sense that one will learn the value of acceptance and contentment. It is important to know that one cannot get all of her heart’s desire maybe because God has other plans for her. Moreover, failure is also a way to be a stronger person in a sense that one will be brave enough to admit her weakness and not be easily discouraged when things doesn’t seem to fall into place. Lastly, failure is also a way to be a wiser person in a sense that one will be more cautious and vigilant in every move that she does to make sure that she’ll definitely achieve her goals.

 People often ask, ‘’How can one have the courage to face life’s trials?’’ Well, faith in God is what matters most. Always bear in mind that God never gave problems that one cannot surpass. Giving up and running away from hindrances will never be the solution. One must learn to believe in her own strengths and abilities. The courage to withstand life’s adversities is also important.

 As I’ve said earlier, failure is inevitable, but over-thinking ruins happiness and peace of mind, so it’s much better to accept things as they are, learn from the mistakes that have been committed, and strive to be the best that you can be.

Tips para sa mga nasa Long Distance Relationship

escafeism:

  • Panatilihin ang komunikasyon. Wag hayaang lumipas ang isang araw ng hindi kayo nagkakausap o nagpapalitan ng masasayang kwento na nagdaan sa maghapon niyong dalawa. Maraming paraan para makapag usap kayo andyan ang text, tawag, video calls at maging ang chat kaya walang rason para hindi kayo…

Farewell

I only have one week left :( I’ll surely miss my nephews even though they annoy the shit out of me. I’ll surely miss my loving cousins who fed me, took care of me, and adopted me for a couple of days. I just want to cry right now. I don’t want this summer vacation to end yet.

ALL I NEED IS AN ESCAPE FROM MY PETTY PROBLEMS

‎”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!
  It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such asituation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…
FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:
1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.
3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.
5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.
6] Number three is public restrooms.
7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.
10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.
———————————————————————————————————————————-
POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:
1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk:can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
 2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow andarmpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.
5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told ourinstructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.
6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without usingmuch pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.
7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feellittle silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.
——————————————————————————————————————————-
FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….
I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.
2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/orpurse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE. 
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may behiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.) 
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.  
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.
DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT NOT REBLOGGING THIS! IT COULD ACTUALLY SAVE A LIFE.

I know I’ve been inactive for a long time and I’m really sorry! I don’t have anything new to post yet :( Lack of inspiration, I guess? Lol. Here’s a sneak peek of my fun-filled adventures in Macau. Please bear with my nene face since these photos were taken last 2011 :) I am very blessed and thankful that I had been given the chance to see the beauty of Macau. It was my first time to travel internationally that’s why this trip is very significant and memorable for me. It was also my parent’s present for me during my 14th birthday. I just couldn’t help but feel nostalgic and sad whenever I see these photos. I feel sad knowing that it would take me years before I could see this marvelous place once again. If you’ve been following my blog for a long time then you probably know what I’m talking about. My life is so much different now. My parents and I have more important things to prioritize. But I know that someday I’ll be able to fulfill my greatest dream: to travel around the world.

Work in progress

I know it’s weird, but I think I’m starting to like my dorm. I am finally learning to accept this so-called hellhole of mine. Some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but I am unfortunately not one of them. But who cares, right? Maybe someday I’ll be able to live a luxurious life and dwell in an enormous abode with numerous servants. Maybe someday I’ll have my own expensive car with a personal chauffeur. Maybe someday I’ll be able to eat multitudinous mind-numbing foods. However, as of now, I have to be completely satisfied with what I have. And I have to pass ETAR first for me to be able to fulfill my ambitions. LOL 

Dorm life taught me so many things I never thought I would have to do (at least not in my teenage years). At home, my parents doesn’t oblige me to help them in the household chores since we have our maid who takes care of everything. Back then, I’d always ask for their advise because I couldn’t decide on my own. I was treated like a 5 year old kid who couldn’t do a single thing without her parents. Anyhow, reality knocks and we all have to accept the fact that I’m already a grown-up who needs to stand up for herself. 

I am so eager to try and experience new stuffs that can hone my personality to be a better and wiser person, and I know that I still have a lot to discover because learning is a never-ending process.
