Love Quotes

I fall for you, you didn’t know; I cared for you, you know it’s true; I cried for you, truly it’s you; But if I’ll let you go, it’s because you can never love me theway I do. __________________

Giving someone all you love is not an assurance that they’d love you back. Wait for the seed to grow in his heart. But if it doesn’t grow, be grateful that it grows into yours.

One Great Loss

Napakarami na nating pinagsamahan. Sa hirap man o sa ginhawa, sa lungkot at saya,  lagi tayong magkasama. Sa totoo lang patataubin natin ang San Miguel, iba pa rin ang may pinagsamahan. Ang dami na nating pinagdaanan. May mga pangyayari na naganap, ang iba’y nalimot na, ang iba nama’y paminsan-minsang naaalala. Pero may mga pangyayaring mahirap malimutan — isa na doon ay noong araw na nakilala kita.

Kay rami na ring nagbago sa pagdaan ng mga oras, ara, buwan at taon. May mga artista,manganganta at bandang sumikat at nalaos. Mga kantang kinabisado, nalimutan at mga kantang tumatak sa ating mga puso. Marami ng shows sa tv ang naumpisahan at natapos. Pero sa puso ko, hindi ka kailanman malalaos o matatapos.

Ilang tao na din ang dumating, umalis, bumalik, nakalimot, nakaalala at kinasasabikang makita pero nanatili ka sa tabi ko. Pero bakit ngayon iniwan mo na ako ? Bakit? Naging tapat ako sa’yo, kahit kailam hindi kita iniwan at ipinagpalit sa iba? O hindi hinanapan ng mga bagay na alam kong hindi mo kayang ibigay? Paano na ako? Paano na, sabihin mo! Paano ko ipagpapatuloy ang buhay nang wala ka?

At higit sa lahat, paano ko ite-text lahat nga nasa phonebook ko para ipaalam na wala ka na, ha? Sabihin mo! More than 200 ang dapat kong i-text para sabihing wala ka na, ha! Hindi mo ba alam na masakit sa daliri lalo na sa hinlalaki ang mag-text at sabihing may bago na akong GLOBE SIM, ha! At higit lalong masakit sa bulsa!  200 plus texts, anak ng SIM CARD naman! Ngayon, 09155639776, pagkatapos ng halos anim na taon, paano na ako?

P-A-A-N-O !!!

DSC00006

=================================================

Nakabili na po ako ng bagong SIM. Masakit man sa loob ko,wala po akong magawa. Mahal na mahal ko ang dati kong Sim. Hindi ko nga maintindihan kung bakit may mga taong grabe ang bilis magpalit ng number.

MAGMALDITA KA SISTER!

Pag maldita sila, dapat bang mas maging maldita ka?

You definitely can’t please everybody. Adage, but true. But I guess no one believes in the saying “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others do unto you.” anymore, as many others continue to be mean and degrade oeher people.

When my friend and I met up a couple o’ weeks ago, she was so devastated that she cried regarding untoward incidents she had with her co-workers. “Sana Janis, magkasama pa tayo sa work. Hindi ko na kaya. When I was eating sa pantry sabi ba naman ng isa sa mga bruha, mukha daw akong katulong! Sana nandoon ka, para hindi nila ako kayang awayin.”

Well, I admit, my friend isn’t what we can consider pretty. She may not be good looking but did she deserve being treated that way? I mean, hello, no matter how beautiful or gorgeous a person is, that person doesn’t have to feel superior and treat others like dirt.  Being good looking isn’t a ticket to make other people feel inferior. Like, duh, what are you, a god/goddess ? Dahil mas maganda ka, may karapatan kang manlait ng iba na sa tingin mo ay hindi kasingganda mo? Para sa akin, kapag ang isang tao ay good looking, mas marami siyang moral responsibilty. I mean, people are gonna watch your every move. Gaya kung matalino ka, maldita, laitera or what. People would try hard to see the worst in you. Kailangan hindi masyadong mataas ang ere dahil pag bumagsak at lumagapak, masakit! You have to at least live up to what you really are – beautiful- and beautiful inside and out. Masakit masabihan ng “maganda nga, maldita /masama ang ugali/bobo naman. Kala mo kung sino. Hmp!”

Whereas the less good looking people, sabi ng friend ko, has reasons daw para maging masama ang ugali. Sabi niya kung buong buhay mo nilalait-lait ka, aba, dapat matuto ka daw lumaban. Ganon na? Pride and dignity na lang daw meron sila. He, he, he… But kidding aside, physical appearance is but a facade, what’s inside your heart and mind matters the most. You may be the pretiest but if you malign others, you’re nothing but an empty can can — shallow… loud but empty. Everything about you surely is skin deep, all surface but nothing underneath it. Nothing worth knowing, nothing worth loving. You’re just a number, your existence doesn’t matter, doesn’t have a value, doesn’t have any worth at all.

Kaya sabi ko sa friend ko, dapat ganito sinabi mo sa co-worker mo, “Oo, mukha akong katulong, magandang katulong. ‘Yong tipong nire-rape ng amo kasi maganda. Hindi kagaya mo, katulong lang, PERIOD. Bisayang katulong*, INDAY! ” You won’t lost anything by believing in KARMA. Of course we don’t want to be treated badly, right, so we should learn to be responsible in dealing with other people. After all at the end of the day, your deeds will either save or condemn you, therefore would define who you really are!!!

===================== ============================================

P.S. Pasintabi sa mga “Bisaya”, I, myself is an Ilongga, my father hailed from Bago City, Negros, Occ. Na-type cast lang po dahil marahil sa humor na ma-tagged ang mga maids and yaya as Bisaya. Huwag pong magalit! Peace!

25 Random Things…about me?

I was tagged by a friend (si Alvin) in facebook. I was a bit challenged to come up with 25 Random things about me. So here is my list :

2. I super hate reptiles! Snakes. Lizards. Eeeewww!

3. I’ve recently discovered I have a passion for cooking.

4. I don’t believe in first impression. I don’t believe it lasts. Prejudice can hinder a friendship to blossom.

5. During one of our accent trainings, one of my co-trainees thought I was a librarian in my former life!

6. I am the worst swimmer. I panick at the thought that nothing’s beneath my feet to step on. It is with this reason that I am ultra-paranoid when riding any water vessel, ferry, boat, etc…

7. I read Tagalog Romance Novels. I am a fanatic!

8. I believe that some good things never last, yet, some don’t even start.

9. I am a crybaby. Madali akong paiyakin, sobra!

10. Naging crush ko si Eric Fructouso ng Gwapings, Spencer Reyes ng Streetboys at si Wowie de Guzman ng UMD. (Pero dati pa ‘yon! Ngayon si John Lloyd na! I love you Lloydie!!!)

11. I have around a thousand books.

12. When I was younger, many people said I am a younger version of Cherie Gil…but that fact I had never seen myself, ’til now.

13. I have always wanted to work as an NGO volunteer. Maraming hindi naniniwala pero mabait naman ako! (Ang hindi maniwala, PANGIT!)

14. I can die for a friend or a family, that’s how deep I love!

15. I only have two major crushes in life. I don’t easily fall in love!

16. I can never exercise and go on a DIET! Hello, sarap kaya kumain, noh!

17. I’d rather live alone with my unrequited love to my grave than be with someone I can never love.

18. Sabi ng nanay ko, hindi daw totoong may malas…hindi lang tama ang timing! Oo nga, I agree with her.

19. It’s easy to provoke me but when someone made me cry because of anger, I’m the last to forgive. My wrath will rot with me to the grave.

20. I rarely smile, but I laugh a lot because I am a happy person.

21. When I say I love a person, I mean it. I don’t easily give up. I don’t easily forget.

22. I want to be a writer.

23. I climb mountains.

24. I love Johnny Depp. As in all of him.

25. I can eat 3 green mangoes in a row without drinking water, without patis, bagoong or salt, just plain mangoes…SARAP!
