An Early Birthday Gift

I will be celebrating my 20th birthday on March 27! And as my Birthday Countdown widget confirms, two days from now, I will turn 20. Yay!

Birthday Countdown Widget 🙂

I have always been excited for my birthday though I don’t actually hold parties or any kind of  “celebration”. I would love to but if there’s none, it’s fine with me. What excites me the most are the greetings from people especially from those whom I never expected to know my special day. I also love receiving gifts and surprises but as I have said, I don’t look forward to those much because I know that the people around me have more important things to prioritize than my birthday. So yeah, I am very excited deep inside but I try my very best not to show it because man, I am turning 20! Birthdays parties are for seven year olds only. Hahaha. Just kidding. Of course everyone deserves a birthday party whichever way they want.

Speaking of gifts, I can say that I am lucky this year for having a friend like Mahj (yeah the one who gave me an extra THG ticket, she’s so nice). Because just as we are taking photos of each other during the The Hunger Games screening, she gave me an early birthday gift! As usual, I almost cried over it but managed just to smile from ear-to-ear as she took out a pair of cellphone charms with owl designs and gave it to me!

I just love owl stuff. They make me joyful.

“Oh, regalo ko sa’yo!” she mentioned. Of course I knew it. If it has owls then it’s mine. I don’t know why but she never really bothered wrapping gifts that’s why the sense of surprise lasted for milliseconds only but the gratitude will stay forever.

Thanks Mahj!

Giving Back

Admit it or not, we always want to receive something for Christmas. May it be simple material gifts or the intangible things that can only be felt by the heart.

This Christmas, I tried my very best to save money and buy three of the most helpful friends I have and luckily, I was able to.

Jeynee, a high school friend and still very generous one. Though she has her own circle of friends, she still finds a way to give me something even just in an ordinary day. I was never last on her list and even if I am, I’m still thankful because I was there. I never had the chance to give her anything yet, aside from letters maybe and a gift from her birthday but this time, I wanted to give her something that she can make use of because she seem like a busy buddy nowadays. I hope with this simple gift I can add to her already happy Christmas.

Blessings came pouring on me because this year I met two people who had given me a lot already even though we just became friends and I wanted to give something back to them, to the best of my abilities.

Mahj, as mentioned here, whenever we go elsewhere, she always manages to provide me food so as I won’t get tired or anything. I admire that and most of all, I admire the trust and the company that she has given me. So I wish, through this gift, I can somehow repay some of those efforts and I promise to treat you next time. When I have money. 🙂

Nadine, the Master. I think I cannot write down all the things that this pink-loving girl has given me. The words in my vocabulary wouldn’t be enough if I were to enumerate each of them but generally, Nadine is the one responsible for everything I have in the blogging world. You wouldn’t be reading these exact words right now if it weren’t because of her. She is also the key to fulfilling my very dream of meeting my most favorite artist in the whole world, Adam Young, and I am very very very thankful for that. I will forever be thankful that she gave me this domain where I was able to earn enough money to buy concert tickets. All that because of her! She is truly a God given gift to everyone who knows her and so in return I would like to give her something that can show how much I appreciated all of her help. These gifts might be simple and she can buy these anytime she want but this is all I can afford so I just wish two things: 1. I wish that she’ll like it. 2. I wish that she never has it yet. (because she seem to have everything already!!!

I’m really not that good in giving gifts so I just made the wrappers look cool so that it may make a good impression. Heh~

I wish these girls would like my very simple gifts to them. I don’t have a job yet guise so deal with those for now. 🙂 Merry Christmas and thank you again! 🙂

New moon journal

It’s strange sometimes when I got the inspiration to write, it’s most probably in the middle of a busy sched or in a peculiar place. Those were the times when my mind is full of ideas and my vocabulary is really productive BUT those were also the moments when a pen and paper are out of sight and reach.


So now, I’m very thankful to finally possess a journal which I painstakingly begged for my sister to give me. And here’s the story of me and my journal:


She has this “twilight saga journal set” and she’s using the Twilight now. I wanted it so bad the moment I saw that set beside her closet but I instantly didn’t think that she was going to give me one but fate stepped in and her ever-precious-boyfriend-given shades had gone missing. After a rather sweaty days of searching, she finally gave up and asked me to look for it instead.

To my surprise, she said that I  will be given 100Php if I will be able to find her shades. The money was perfect for me but all of a sudden a picture of the journal flashed before my eyes and at that same moment, I demanded for a bigger reward and that, as you have expected, is the saga journal.


To my surprise again, my sister coercively said, “Look for it first!” Which i took as a yes. With enough motivation, I started my search. I remember that I just finished taking a bath that time so I was still wearing only my towel but I looked for it anyway.

I looked inside her closet and in our messy accessories shelf – no shades.

Suddenly  I thought of looking at the top of mom’s closet  where a lot of our unused things get stacked and woollaaaa! There’s the shades! I think it didn’t took me 5 minutes. I was so lucky! 🙂

She gave me the money the next day and this journal, I think, weeks later. But it’s okay. I know it’s hard to be away from her babies. 🙂


Here's my journal. 🙂

New moon! 🙂
