FW2 – Thank You Jollibee

Hi. I really love the video that I just watched now. Super inspiring magmahal knowing na akala namen kame lang ang ganun, pati pala sa commercial pwede. Hindi naman sa lahat but I just wanna let you know that almost all of the scenes from this “Jollibee video” (Fight or Flight), sapul ako and my partner. My partner doesn’t even know that I’m doing this right now. But I hope na if ever man ma post to, she’ll know that it’s for her.

This content will be all about sacrifice. While watching this video, I started to feel sad knowing na nahihiwalay ako lagi sa loved ones ko. Not only to her, but of course pati sa family ko. Before I thought masaya sumakay ng eroplano and then I realized, it was one of the hardest part in my life. I may not be a flight attendant, but I am a man who works for my family and myself. Para tumulong, and of course para mapasaya sila sa onting pasalubong na pwedeng maibigay. Every time na uuwi ma ako sa Pilipinas, super excited na ako na halos hindi na ako makatulog. Of course excited to see my family, and yung taong nagpapasaya saken. This video is very inspiring and I wanna thank you Jollibee for making me happy as well. Kasi hindi lang ako yung taong naniniwala, kundi ikaw din. Naniniwala ka na kahit gaano man kalayo sa isa’t isa, things will work if you both want it. So naniniwala ako na siya na ang perfect pair ko. I will always keep in mind that I’ll always be positive and of course, I’ll always be more patient with my partner. Just like in the video, mag aaway man but love will always find a way. Thank you Jollibee for doing this. Kasi I was able to express my feelings para sa kanya and I was able to talk to you kahit hindi kita nakikita. It doesn’t really matter na if makita man niya to o hindi. Ang importante is nakausap ko ikaw (Jollibee) , and that I was able to tell you my story. I was able to share something to someone kung gaano ko kamahal ang taong madalas kame di nagkakasundo. Super hirap magkaayos knowing na LDR kayo. Pero syempre, wala namang perfect relationship. There’s just a “perfect pair” to those who believe in each other. Kaya tip lang sa mga kagaya kong LDR diyan. Laban lang, wag na wag kayong susuko. You never know what’s there for you to see. Meaning, iba pa din ang feeling na matagal niyong hinintay na magkitang muli. So guys, laban lang and believe in each other ma kaya niyo. Kasi ako, I’ll make sure that I’ll always be worth the wait at hinding hindi ko sasayangin ang times na magkasama kame and of course, kakain kame sa Jollibee habang nag big talk. Kasi hindi na small talk dahil sobra na naming daming na miss na pagusapan. Oh di ba? Perfect pair din.

Again, thank you Jollibee dahil binuhay mo ang mga team LDR. I hope you will continue on inspiring people not only me, mga team LDR, kundi ang lahat ng taong nalulungkot dahil malayo sila. Always be positive and mag pray. It helps a lot! It works on me, and I know it will work on you too. Wala namang masamang mag try. God bless and thank you.

FW1-A Night To Remember

Sabi nila “Love doesnt come easily”. Tama nga sila bakit? Kasi matagal mo na pala akong nasisilayan 2016 pa kung saan saan mo ako hinanap isa ka pala sa kaibigan ng schoolmate ko at dun mo nalaman pangalan ko hanggang sa makita mo ako sa simbahan bilang Lector. Hindi pa kita kilala non subalit tadhana ang siyang naglapit. May concert na magaganap sa Parish natin kaya naman sabi mo nagbakasakali ka na maging Usher ng event dahil baka nandun ako. Nagtagumpay ka at natagpuan mo ako. Isang pagpupulong ang naganap, yun yung una kitang makita tila ba’y umiral si Tadhana at NAHULOG AKO SAYO at simula non CRUSH NA KITA. Akala ko nung una crush crush lang, pero nung pangalawang beses na magkita tayo sa meeting may pinaikot na papel kung saan hinihingi ang contact number ng bawat isa. Ngunit, akala mo makukuha mo na ang number ko pero hindi dahil ang sinulat ko dun “NO SIM” sabi mo sobrang dismayado ka nun dahil akala mo makakausap mo na ako pero hindi.

Gabi na ng Parokya (Concert). LATE KA NANAMAN. Nakita mo ako nun na stress na stress dahil ako nga ang tumayong head sainyo. Sa hindi inaasahang pagkakataon HINILA MOKO AT YINAKAP at sinabi mo “Halika ka nga dito, wag ma stress” narinig ko ang kabog ng dibdib mo nun at dun nahulog ako lalo sayo. Noon akala ko hanggang noon nalang pero eto ngayon TAYO NA. 1YEAR NA! ❤.

Akala ko nung una simpleng crush lang pero nalaman ko nga na matagal mo na pala akong hinahanap. Maraming salamat sayo dahil hindi ka sumuko, mahal ko.

Masaya tayo hanggang ngayon at eto parin tayo nagmamahalan ng TOTOO.

Kaya naman sa makakabasa neto, TANDAAN NIYO WALANG IMPOSSIBLE BASTA’T MANIWALA KALANG. Parang kami nung una CRUSH lang pero ngayon NAGMAMAHALAN.

Minahal ka nga ba?

Naramdaman mo ba nung kayo pang dalawa? Nakita mo ba sa kanyang mga mata? Tanging kayo lamang dalawa ang makasasagot ng katanungan kung minahal ka nga ba niyang talaga. Minsan may mga katanungan na alam natin ang kasagutan pero nagtatalo sa ating isipan kung ‘yon nga ba ang katotohanan. Sa mga panahong naging kayo sa tingin ko ay minahal ka rin n’ya Jac

Laging may dalawang side sa isang istorya. That person would not stay or at least care for you if walang love totally. Ang hirap sabihin kung sino ang may mali at kung minahal ka nga ba. Ikaw lamang ang tanging makasasagot niyan mula sa mga alaala na pinagsamahan ni’yong dalawa.

Hangga’t wala kayong maayos na closure; Hangga’t nasa stage ka pa kung saan  mayroon ka pang sama ng loob, magiging mahirap talaga ang bawat araw na darating.

Aminin man natin o hindi, mahirap magdesisyon, mahirap mag-move forward kung mayroon pang hindi malinaw sa’yo. Kung mayroon pang mga tanong na naghihintay ng mga kasagutan, mga bagay na sobrang labo at gusto mong malinawan.

Kung maaari, subukan mong makipag usap sa kanya hindi para makipagbalikan kundi upang malaman mo yung mga kasagutan sa mga tanong sa isipan mo. “The truth will set you free”, masakit ‘man minsan ang katotohanan pero ito yung daan para gumaan yung bigat na nadarama mo.

Mahirap maalis yung mga hindi magagandang alaala na dulot niya, mahirap mag move on. Pero try to get your self into engaging activities. Make your self busy. Never ever ever lock your self up on your room para magmukmok. Lumabas ka. Enjoy with your friends. Pagbutihin mo pang lalo yung mga bagay na ginagawa mo. 

Iba’t-iba tayo ng paraan para maka-move on. Iba-iba rin ang time frame ng tao sa pag m-move on. Merong nagagawa ito within 3 months (3 months rule) and some for a loooooong time. No one can dictate us on how and when we should move on. Mismong sarili lang natin ang makakagawa. With the help of others maybe and maybe not. Small steps lang. Sabi nga nila a little progress is still a progress. Kaya don’t pressure your self, mas lalo kang matatagalan. Kung ano mang nakasakit sa’yo wag mo ng balik-balikan pa. ‘Di mo kailangang magmadali, pero kailangan mong tanggapin na may mga bagay talaga na hindi para saatin, mga tao na kung minsan ay kailangan na nating palayain. Unti- unti lang at darating rin ‘yung time na masasabi mong:

Okay na ko, tanggap ko na. Napatawad na rin kita.

Sometimes may mga darating sa buhay natin na akala natin sila na yung para sa atin. We tend to confine ourselves sa pagmamahal sa maling tao kung kaya’t hindi na natin nabubuksan ang ating puso para sa mga tunay na  nagmamahal sa atin.

Palayain natin ang ating sarili mula sa kalungkutan, sama ng loob at mga katanungan. Alamin natin ang katotohanan, tanggapin; at darating ang oras na kaya na nating harapin nang may ngiti ang kinabukasan.

FRIENDZONED – SMP 2.0 Samahan ng mga Martir sa Pag-ibig

From codename “Friendzoned”

“May kaibigan ako for almost 2 years now, dahil sobrang close namin I fell for him, wala akong magagawa we’re in the same circle of friends eh. All I do is go with the flow. I know from the start na di siya magkakagusto saken kasi open siya ng konti saken, he shared his lovelife sa akin lang even if we have so many friends. I expected, yes. Wala eh we’re just partners in everything but I guess not in love. Mahal ko siya but I just can’t keep myself from falling in love with him even more although I know he loves someone else. Di ko nga alam kung sila na nung best friend niya eh. Pero lagi niyang sinasabi na sila. Best buds pa din naman kami ngayon. We still help each other in any way we can. I met new guys na naging kaclose ko but it’s still him I love. He’s definitely my first love. Martir ako sa kanya. I will do eveything for him. Di niya ako kayang mahalin and that’s okay. At least we’re friends pa din and I still love him. Di ko alam kung hanggang kelan but now, I just can’t let him go, not now. Di ko pa kayang magmove on.”

Some of us may already experienced to have a crush on a friend. Hindi lang sa friend na basta “friend” lang, kundi minsan sa sobrang close friend pa at kadalasan kayo pa yung palaging magkasama o magkatuwang sa bawat gawain. Hi Friendzoned! This is for you. 🙂

Well, sabi ng iba life is a matter of choice daw. God destined us for someone, but since we are created with freedom choice natin kung kanino tayo mai-inlove, kung doon ba sa nakasulat sa tadhana natin o sa iba… Choice rin natin if we will let ourselves continue to fall sa isang tao, maaaring hindi natin hawak na bigla nalang tayong mahulog sa kanya, pero may magagawa tayo to try na mapigilan yun.

Sabi nga sa isang movie line, “may mga babaeng gine-girlfriend at may mga babaeng hanggang kaibigan lang.” Same for the boys. May mga lalaking bino-boyfriend at merong mga hanggang kaibigan lang din. Minsan we were just influenced by some happenings na rin, like your friends “kantyaw“, and all those “pinagsamahan, memories and everything” kung kaya’t imbis na mapigilan ay lalo lang tayong nahuhulog.

Kaso hindi mo maiiwasan at darating at darating pa rin ang pagkakataon kung saan maiipit tayo sa pagitan ng “gusto ko siya” pero “ayokong masira yung pagkakaibigan namin”. Well good thing is choice rin natin if we will keep the friendship or move up the notch a little higher and be a living proof of those overrated friends-turn-to-lovers stories. So yes, hindi lahat ng magkaibigan na nagkainlovean at nagkaaminan ay nasira ang pagkakaibigan. Gayunpaman, marami rin ang mga magkaibigan, na nagka-inlovean at nag iwasan na ng tuluyan.

Some are ready to join the SMP o ang Samahan ng mga Martir sa Pag-ibig. Kaya nilang tiisin at kimkimin ang sakit ng one sided love. If you’ll ask why maybe the only answer is because they are happy. That person they love makes them happy and maybe they also find peace and they fell at ease when they are together. Their heart is happy whenever they are with that person. And please let’s not judge them. Iba-iba tayo ng source of happiness, kung minsan nga lang yung happiness na ‘yon ay may kalakip ding sakit.

But when will it be enough? Will it ever end? And bakit nga ba nagkaganon? It’s very different for every person. Because, some may have got the wrong signal/s. At dito nagsisimula ang tanong kung sino nga ba ang may kasalanan? Kung sino ang paasa? At kung sino ang mukang ewan dahil umasa? O dapat ba kasi ay hindi nalang masyadong naging caring at mabait? And the list goes on.

Sa sitwasyon mo kung saan sinasabi niya na may girlfriend na siya ay mahirap talaga, alam kong at the back of your mind inasam mo rin na sana maging kayong dalawa pero at “for now” mas pinili mo yung safer choice kung saan magpapatuloy yung pagkakaibigan ninyong dalawa.

Pero hanggang kailan? Kagaya ng sinabi mong, “I just can’t let him go, not now“.  Alam kong alam mo na in some point sa future ay darating yung time na kailangan mo nang mamili nang final answer kung sasabihin mo ba sa kanya at ipaglalaban yung pagmamahal mo o habang buhay mo na lamang na itatago kasama ng masasayang alaala ninyo yung nararamdaman mo para sa kanya. At hahayaang dalhin ng paglipas ng panahon ang pag-lipas din ng nararamdaman mo para sa kanya.

And again my friend, that is a choice you have to make. It’s tough. And it’s only you, yes you, who can rewrite the stars… joke. But jokes are half meant. Ikaw lang talaga ang makakapag-decide on what you want to do. Kahit anong sabihin ng mga taong nasa paligid mo, ikaw pa rin ang may hawak ng magiging desisyon mo.

Regarding sa pag momove on, mahirap talaga, at hindi yung label kung naging “kayo ba” ang nagpapahirap dun, kundi yung fact na hanggang doon na lang talaga kayo; yung fact na magiging alaala na lang pagtagal yung mga pinagsamahan ninyo noon.

Well mahirap pero maaaring mabawasan. Try to focus yourself sa ibang mga bagay, kung nagaaral ka pa ngayon subukan mong ituon pang lalo yung oras mo sa pagaaral o pagpapabuti sa kung ano mang ginagawa mo; try to change yung nakasanayan mo, unti-unti subukan mong bawasan pansamantala kahit kaunti yung mga bagay na nag uugnay sa inyong dalawa. Magiging mahirap lalo na kung halos araw-araw kayong nagkikita at nagkakasama, pero maaari etong maging way para “maka-move on” ka na; lastly tanggapin mo sa sarili mo na wala siyang feelings para sayo, masakit pero kapag tunay mo nang natanggap sa iyong puso ay unti-unti na ring magsusubside ang feelings mo para sa kanya. Two in one, nabawasan o nawala yung feelings mo para sa kanya and at the same time  hindi siya nawala sayo bilang kaibigan mo.

Bata ka pa, marami pang mangyayari. May mga tao pang darating sa buhay mo, at mayroon din namang mga aalis. No one knows what will happen tomorrow, pero naniniwala ako “that your future is somehow connected sa naging desisyon mo ngayon“. Believe it or not, mayroon pang mas na mga challenges pa ang darating, mapa-love life at sa buhay mo mismo.

Dalawa lang din yan, maybe hindi talaga kayo ang para isa’t-isa o hindi lang ito ang tamang oras para sa inyong dalawa. 

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. “1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ESV

can’t have enough planners

The hype on planners/journals/sketchbooks are ON. O-N. Many are getting hooked and excited with the new designs for the year 2019. It is truly very exciting! Yes? Yes! I know, I know. Sobrang nakaka-excite talaga ang mga bagong designs. Mas nakaka-excite pa lalo dahil available sa ating local malls and book stores ang mga ito.

One of them you may have seen on all social networking sites. Shared, liked and ranted about. It is  Limelight’s – LLGT Planner 2019. One of the very hyped 2019 planner/journal notebook. They are a local brand. A little chika about the brand’s [Limelight] past products first. They mainly produce journal and sketch books. Their journal notebooks and sketch books

limelight-nbs-planner
https://www.facebook.com/Limelight.ph/

are popular among artist and journal users. Their notebooks are recommended because of its quality. Bukod sa kaledad nilang products, kilala rin sila dahil sa abo’t kaya nilang presyo.

365-planner-limelight

 

And just this November they release a 2019 planner and it instantly became a big hit. I can attest to that. My own LLGT planner was the only one left when I got it and when I visited another NBS store it was already sold out as well as in the stationery section. This beautiful, functional and affordable planner comes in five (5) different colors:

  • White
  • Black
  • Gray
  • Rose Gold
  • Mint Green

 

 

You can get this beaut in any National Book Store and SM Stationery nationwide for only Php 299.75! It’s is a good choice if you are just starting on planners and journals and if you just want to try (and if you are on a tight budget).

But is it really worth the hype? Looks can be deceiving, sabi nga nila. This A5 size notebook won’t deceive you. It has smooth dotted pages.  A hardbound cover. A pen holder where you can slip your favorite pen and a pocket to store your fave sticker and other journal-ing things. And fyi it has weight.

Take a look on what’s inside the LLGT Planner 2019.

 

 

Notebook lover? Journal user? Artist? Planner user? (but doesn’t have that “many plans”) Or just experimenting and exploring planners? Just a stationery addict?
