Day 8: Share your educational attainment and why you chose it
Who does not want to be loved? Whatever your major is or whoever you are, you deserve your forever love. I’m a Business Major (and also dating a Business Major) and this is a little biased but let me just tell you 5 reasons why we are also worth your love. 😉
PS. You don’t have to worry about us meeting all the important people in your life – we know how to deal with people – whatever their personalities are and how we should market ourselves and showcase how much we deeply feel for you (all yours, baby! Heart, Mind, and Soul!) (Business Ethics and Good Governance, Human Resource Management, Human Behavior in Organizations, Marketing and Advertising Management)
Why not love a business major so you can have your forever – defined, measured, analyzed, improved, and controlled? 😉 (DMAIC Approach)

Day 7: Describe how different you are different from the person you were 5 years ago
Breaking the rules again – I find it hard to describe myself so why not give a list of the things I want to tell myself 5 years ago. Without further ado, here it is!
PS. Day 7 came earlier than Day 6 because I’m currently brewing something new for Day 6 and I am taking my time for it. 😉 Keep in touch!
With all my love,
Day 5: Share a time you felt down and what happened after
Day 5 topic is as sad as hell and you don’t wanna read that as much as I do. You know me, I like breaking the rules. I’ll skip this and just write a recent event I felt happy. Everyone wants to happy. (Jollibee Bee happy!)
My Bestfriend’s “Kdrama Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” 21st Birthday Celebration
If you want to have a unique birthday bash and you just want to spend it with the most special people in your life (or you just don’t have that much budget), then I best recommend a night out at the busiest business districts around Manila like we did for our best friend Angel.
For Angel’s 21st Birthday: our itinerary was not planned, we just went with whatever was available. We did a little catch up while swimming and we decided to stroll and buy more food even if we still had Mark’s cooked food just slightly eaten. Yes, we bought Korean foods at Assi Mart Korean Grocery along Makati Ave. near A.venue. If you plan to have a food adventure, you can include A.venue on your list – you can find so many interesting restaurants there.
Look at what we bought! (Shout out to whomever that extra feet belongs)
Sharing you our pics and snaps of our adventure!
Day 4: Share your religious views
To talk about my religious views about Catholic faith would stir a lot of sub-discussions. By all means, if I were given a chance to choose my religion, I’d still choose to be Catholic over and over again.
Let me show you a blog I wrote on my previous site. I am going to showcase you this blog because this is one of the greatest struggles in my life. I am a hopeless romantic and I will always be one. I was desperately looking for the perfect love that I didn’t notice God’s love was chasing me. I loved so many wrong people and got hurt so many times but then I always run to God; every time I got better.
Here’s the blog:
Open Letter for The Women of My Age
Posted on April 5, 2016
Stop begging for love. Stop waiting for that text that will never come. Stop waiting for that return call. Stop thinking you are not enough. Stop thinking you are worthless. Stop asking someone of your worth. Stop waiting for someone who never even bothered to look at you. Stop begging for him to notice you, stop begging for him to come back, stop begging for him to stay, stop begging for him to say he loves you back. Stop. Just Stop.
You don’t need to beg. Because it is already given to you. Even before you were born, He has given you love more than what you are begging for. Stop waiting for that text because someone is always knocking on your heart just to hear your voice, just to make you talk to him – no matter how much you ignore Him. Stop thinking you are worthless because someone gave his all just to be with you – just to save you. Stop asking someone of your worth because someone called you His even after all your failures, mistakes, sins. Someone is proud of your broken little pieces, your shattered broken heart that in this condition, He pours out his love so you can heal – only if you let him. Don’t go to your neighbor to ask for your worth, go to your creator. He knows your true worth because He made you. You did things that hurt others? He would say “I love you” You did things to hurt yourself? He would say “I love you.” You think you’re not enough because someone left you? What about Him who never left your side, what about Him who uses your broken pieces to bless others because you are a blessing to Him? Stop begging for little dose of love because He has given you enormous, unconditional, irrevocable love. You deserve that. Believe you deserve that because even if you close your heart for his love, it’s still flowing unto you like a storm. And once you open up your heart for it, then you would know that His love goes beyond the depths of the Earth.
Hey, YOU ARE LOVED! 🙂
As a lost-but-now-found woman, this is what religion means to me. It’s more than just a way of life or a belief of an everlasting God. It’s more than the catechisms and doctrines. It is a feeling of safety because there’s a Father who will protect you, a feeling of being loved because there’s a He who is love, a feeling of forgiveness because there’s a He who is mercy, a feeling of being appreciated, a feeling that you can do and achieve everything you ever dreamed of because He is your creator.
Being a Catholic is walking in the path God walked, loving other as much as He loves, and leading others to do the same.
Day 3: Write about your experience with drugs or alcohol (your own or not!)
I was introduced to alcohol as early as 7th grade from set of friends whose idea of a good time is getting drunk. For the record, I have no history of getting so drunk I passed out. Except for the time when my brother and our angel (helper at home) told me I vomited a whole hot dog on Christmas of 2014. Don’t hate – I was nursing a broken heart that time. I actually don’t have any memory of that and I don’t want to remember.
I am not drinking anymore – I drink but not a lot like how much I was drinking way back 7th grade and I really don’t know how it feels to be drunk.
I want to share this to non-drinkers like the new boring me: The Non-Alcoholic Guide to Drinking. Here it goes!
This is for all the guys & gals out there who are non-drinkers but just wanna have a TGIF kind of night with the best besties around the world. Don’t be a drunkard. Stay in school.
Day 2 Challenge is all about sharing what I think I’ll become in 10 years – but instead of telling you all about myself, let me just share with you 10 things I do right now to become who and what I want to be in 10 years.
I wish you all the best in every dream you are achieving right now. I know that you will become the best YOU through all the years that will pass by and I am grateful to be part of that success! I’d love to hear your success stories in the future!
We met at a very lax and unexpected timing. I first heard his voice when I started my first work at the Top Real Estate Developer in the Philippines (yep, I’m that proud. Introduction should be complete, heh heh). It was yet the manliest and bitter sweet and smooth and husky and comforting voice I’ve ever heard. It felt familiar. It felt like he existed a long time ago in my life and now it’s the perfect time to meet each other again. Let’s just call him Alden Maurer – because he looks like Alden Richards and Mario Maurer (in my eyes – jk, really) Not to be boasting about his looks whatsoever but he really looks like the mix of the two personas. I was still taken when we met – stranded with my ex and I was forbidden to do so many things and be friends with so many people. It finally ended and I was left broken – but I stood up as soon as I realized that I was better off without him. I became a free woman, atlast! Then that’s where we became friends. I started answering his texts and calls and we talked about everything. There was never a dull moment with him – until now. But I assure you our relationship was pure friendship, he was still in a relationship that time. I would cry and tell him everything my mouth could utter for my broken and lost heart and he would share problems and heartaches also of his relationship. Our experiences and hurts were the same so it was easy to understand and guide each other. Yup, we really started as friends and it’s the best foundation when you want a relationship that lasts. Take it from me, I learned that just now in my relationship with Alden Maurer.
Fast forward, January 7 of this year, under the dancing lights under the glimmering post-Christmas night, he asked me to marry him…. just kidding! He asked me to be his girlfriend. He was about to get into his knees but I stopped him – was too shy and was too kilig. So then, the adventure began! We’re turning 9mos on the 7th of October and we still have so many adventures to do!
And.. That’s just the introduction. Hahaha! So to explain my current relationship: It’s true what they say, the scars from all the hurts and the x number of times you fell on the broken fragments of your broken heart will be gone when the one who will make you feel the love that you truly deserve. You will start to realize that it’s worth it. He’s worth it. and that God has broken you over and over again so you can love him the way he also deserves and absorb the love He will show through him through your cuts. So that you will realize that God has prepared the best for you.
Our relationship is simple but it has mysterious and wonderful ways of making us feel loved and showing us how to love. It doesn’t compose of expensive gifts and extravagant dates (we even have a budget for our dates) but it has ambitious dreams and plans for the future. It is not known by many people but it consists of true friendship shared through laughter which made our eyes cry out of joy.
He’s my best friend, body guard, macho papa, sugar daddy, punching post, bite post, my one and only, the love of my life, and the one who I want to be with for each and every day of my life.
I am in love with a crazy, weirdo, funny guy and he’s all I ever wanted.
I love you, My Alden Richards and Mario Maurer.
On the 90th day before Christmas of 2017, I decided to take not 1, not 2, but 3 30-day challenges. It’s my first try and I want to really challenge myself so I am pushing myself to do such quantity. I am always a blogger at heart but I don’t have the discipline and motivation to write and write everyday. I am a lot like some of you, I still don’t have enough trust and confidence on myself and my talents. I tend to take the negativity inside eat me alive. People who know me very well will agree with this. But I am striving; I am writing and will write what I feel anyway. I think ending this year with a changed self would be a great start for the next year to come. This is the time to be courageous and take that step forward.
This is my step forward.
Be with me as I go on this exciting and challenging venture of my life.
Sharing you the 30 day challenges I picked.
For this part, I will be doing it in calligraphy.
Take a step forward and do it also!
