Fortywinks.

I am blessed with a circle of friends that is also my support group, in spite and despite of everything-- distance, of excuses for being not there, for misunderstandings and cold treatment, salaries and posts, of being righteous and lost; for cheering you on for every great photo you've captured to lambasting your moronic tendencies; when they understand even before you explain. When you've found them, keep them. Never exchange them for anything or anyone.

Love means...

...your father carrying your pink polka dot luggage to get you a cab to the airport.

Three Things from a Dress

There's this dress that I have been earnestly wanting since the start of the year. It was too expensive for me so I didn't buy it; although I really never forgotten that for months.

Today, I saw the same dress, one last piece of it in the rack, in my size, at 70% off.

Three things: 1. Miracles do happen; 2. Somethings, if it's really for you, will circle back to no matter what happens. 3. Macbook and my Italian dream can also be like this dress. ;))

Last Quarter Travels and Maladies (or plainly Travel Maladies)

Two years ago, I said, ideally I would want to travel once every quarter to even out the expenses and to make sure that there is ample time for me to catch airline promos. That makes it 4 destinations in a year. Last year and the year before that, I was able to hit that goal and I think I'll have a part three of that.

The only thing is...


...the last 3 travels for the year will happen all on the last quarter!

My last trip was in CDO-Camiguin in February, now there's Cebu in October (my college barkada is getting married!), Singapore and Kuala Lumpur on November and only 3 days after that Boracay in December.

See, I'm not complaining but I must admit, it is financial suicide to do that so before you hit that "Book Now" button in the airline website, go check your travel calendar.

Please learn from my experience.
Unless of course, you are earning so much and doing really well, please go ahead and explore the world at your own pace.

But as always, I thank God that I can physically travel and that I have a job to support these suicide attempts that I am getting myself into. ;)

Finally

With so much happiness, I took them out of the box today when my new bookshelf arrived.

Now they can breathe.

On Becoming (and Realizing) a Storyteller

Today I woke up to the thought of what I may have been tasked to do on Earth-- in pictures and in moving pictures, in words spoken and in words written, perhaps HE intended me to become a Storyteller.
