Malaysia: Legoland x Hello Kitty Town

Finally able to tick this off my bucket list. I always wanted to go to Legoland and Hello Kitty town (since I love hello kitty very much). ๐Ÿ˜€

Kismet.

This was a story of girl meets boy
and it was not a love story
from the start

It’s your typical chick flick,
where she fell faster than gravity’s pull
but has played the roleย of his pal

Pride was her sharpest sword,
inexperience his strongest shield
making it hard for cupid to do his job

A year almost passed,
both went their separate paths
with other people being their firsts

Nurtured by triumphs
and withered by bad decisions
they continued to grow apart

Then a sudden plot twist
has shaken things a bit,
making their roads cross again.

All they needed was a second chance
for the girl full of yesterday’s scars,
and for the boy haunted by past faults.

She didn’t see it coming,
the day those three words
slipped through the boy’s lips.

Was it really fate or not?
nobody can ever tell
both only knew they fell

This is a story of girl meetsย boy
and it’s a love story
currently in-progress. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my first attempt in writing a poem after a year. I wrote this in the wee hours of the morning so please pardon if it lacks artistic style or even coherence.

I’ll try creating another one in my free time. xD

24th: A Year Before Silver.

March 22, 2015.

It was my first birthday away from home… Literally!!! I wasn’t able to celebrate it with my family and close friends that’s why I felt a little sad somehow. I suddenly missed mama’s cooking, especially her spaghetti and tuna carbonara. :((

Surprised!!!
I didn’t expect that there’s a surprise in stored for me come midnight. I was just chillin’ at the balcony when they asked me to go inside the room. Gid said that I should open the door after 3 knocks… Hmmmm.

Touched.๐Ÿ˜ญ

  

As I went out of the room the Happy Birthday song was playing as they greeted me with my birthday cake. ๐Ÿ˜ญ There were balloons with my pictures at the hallway (one balloon flew outside, hope my picture won’t be used for personal gain, kidding!). Gid gave me a paperbag containing a usb drive and a white box. The usb drive contained a movie collage of my pictures with dedications and at the end was a video of me dancing on stage. (It was the most embarassing moment in my college life) ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก On the other hand, the white box contains a silver pandora bracelet. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Aha! Here’s the mastermind… xD
๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Ate Vangie’s cooking was superb! ๐Ÿ˜‹
  
With officemates. Thank you for coming! ๐Ÿ˜
 

I know it’s a little late to say thank you for this one. (post has been sitting in my drafts folder for months xD) You do know how to make me happy through your own ways. I wasn’t expecting anything that’s why I was really taken by surprise with all the effort you’ve put into this. I still couldn’t believe that you can do such a thing hehe. *pinches self* ๐Ÿ˜† 

Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š

The best things in life are usually found when you are not looking for them.

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

[Chorus]
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

[Chorus]
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along

———————————–

This song is so beautiful… It reminds me of the time when feelings start to blossom once again. A time for new beginnings. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can listen to this song over and over until I fall asleep, the melody is so dreamy. โ˜บ๏ธ

Kris Allen’s version in American Idol was also nice. ๐Ÿ˜

Place I’d Rather Be.

After months of staying in Singapore, I decided to have an impromptu visit to the Philippines. I went home not because I’m feeling homesick or any. I went home because I want to surprise my family (they’re expecting me to go home on October hehe >:)), to catchup with friends, to shop (yay for cheaper goods), and most of all to hug and kiss Ashe my beloved cat. :3

It was my first time to go home since I arrived in SG last November. I wasn’t able to allot time to some of my friends but I’ll make it up to them the next time I return. ;_;

Below is the summary of my short stay captured in pictures:

  

Buying some snacks while waiting for our flight @Changi International Airport
 
Hello Manila!
 
Guess who just cried… :))
  

Finally got a duplicate copy of Gid’s driver’s license.
Elmar’s lechon @Fishermall is the best. 3 thumbs up for this! ๐Ÿ˜
Someone just made his mom cry… No more surprises next time! =))
With my bestfriend… โ˜บ๏ธ
Dinner with college friends.
Traditional overnight @Josh’s condo. ๐Ÿ‘
With Stef, my twin… I really miss her. ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Overdue treat for Roland. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

   

With my Accenture bootcampmates. #teammagallanes

      

Hurray for new glasses. *nerd mode*
  
Chili’s molten lava cake craving satisfied!
  
Family. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  
Finally tried this. ๐Ÿ˜
  
Bowling… Haha I won! ๐Ÿ˜œ
    
Tres Marias! โ˜บ๏ธ
 
Ashe is famous! Loljk!
  
Sunrise on the way back.
  
Thank you for accompanying me… I really appreciate it, without you I won’t ride planes. ๐Ÿ˜Š #scaredycat
  As cliche as it may be there’s really no place like home. See you Philippines on October and December again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Let them.

Something to live byPeople come and go. That’s the harsh reality that I need to accept right now. It’s hard being the type of person who gets easily attached especially with relatives of friends and significant others. Maybe they’re not really meant to stay in our lives forever due to some circumstances. There will come a point that they will eventually pass through our livesย and maybe forget the bonds or connections that were formed.

But despite that, one thing’s for sure… That I will hold dearly in my heart whatever memory we’ve shared. That I will remember you as my second familyย whom I will cherish and look back uponย with a smile. That at one point in my life I sawย a happy future living with you.

This may be the end of your part in my story but remember that I will always wish you the best that life can offer wherever you are. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you very much for everything… ๐Ÿ˜€

See You Again.

Watched Furious 7 last night, still can’t get enough of the “For Paul” feels.ย T_T

This latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise didn’t only focus on the high-speed cars (yay for GTR *_*), but it also takes us on a emotional ride with the characters.

*drools*
*drools*

Warning spoilers ahead:ย 

“No matter where you are, whether it’s a quarter mile away, or halfway across the world, you’ll always be with me. And you’ll always be my brother.”

This quote from Dom wasย a certified tearjerker. You can hear the people in the cinema sniffing especially when Dom and Brian’s cars started to go on separate ways. The song at the ending made my seatmate cry. “See you again” by Wiz Khalifaย and Charlie Puthย gave justice to the Paul tribute.ย Below are the lyrics of the song.

————————–

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Damn who knew all the planes we flew
Good things we’ve been through
That I’ll be standing right here
Talking to you about another path I
Know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn’t last
Had to switch up look at things different see the bigger picture
Those were the days hard work forever pays now I see you in a better place

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
when I see you again

First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong and what’s
Small turn to a friendship a friendship
Turn into a bond and that bond will never
Be broke and the love will never get lost
And when brotherhood come first then the line
Will never be crossed established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn and that line is what
We reach so remember me when I’m gone

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

So let the light guide your way hold every memory
As you go and every road you take will always lead you home

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

I’m really glad they didn’t kill Paul Walker’s character, instead they let him retire to be with his family… and we know it was the right ending for this movie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Three thumbs up for this film! Will definitely watch it again once I arrive in Manila. <:o)
