On my joining day
A guy in a black polo
Never left my mind

His smile makes my day
Whenever we’re together
I can’t help but fall

Little did I know
He will be holding my hand
For the years to come

First attempt in writing a haiku! The 5-7-5 syllabication is kinda challenging. I don’t know if “we’re” can be considered as one syllable. But nonetheless I feel proud of my work haha! πŸ˜…

Enjoy!!! C:

Many Happy Returns (of the day)

Last week was Gid’s birthday. I wanted to make it as memorable as possible since it’s his first birthday away from his family (last year they went here to Singapore) and as my boyfriend. πŸ™‚ I collected videos from his family, friends and relatives, I almost got caught when he saw a notification from one of his guy friends on my facebook messenger. *close call huhu*

On the eve of the special day, I was planning to sneak into their house and greet him together with his housemates. But they said that he’s at the living room, so we had no choice but for me to enter the house with his knowledge. :< I have to leave his gift outside as not to arouse suspicion.

Sorry I have to leave you outside xD

As I entered, I told him that I’m going straight to the restroom.Meanwhile, his housemates were hiding in the kitchen while preparing the cake, the common room restroom was also located there. Kaye was already lighting the first candle when the kitchen door suddenly opened, we were both shocked and surprised to see the birthday boy. :(( He said that he followed me since I was taking too long to return from the restroom (my bad! grrr , epic fail man! =))). But still the show must go on, we proceeded as planned.

Not-so-surprised birthday boy xD

Little did he know that I already planned another surprise for the weekend, and fortunately that one caught him off guard. >:D It was a staycation at Park Avenue Rochester hotel at Buona Vista. The hotel management upgraded the suite when they learned that I was planning a surprise celebration.The staff even helped me in decorating the room and executing my plans (three thumbs up, you guys totally rocked! <3)

What it looked like:

We watched the compiled birthday video at night. I’m so glad I was able to edit it decently, somehow. =)) Messages in the video were a mixture of English and Filipino. πŸ™‚

Hoping that this will be one of the many birthdays that we will celebrate together baby! πŸ™‚

Gideon

I want to write a poem
containing everything
that I liked and loved
about you.

But alas! Twenty-six letters
of the alphabet are not enough
to encapsulate even a single flake
of your being.

But still, l will try,
because this feeling
would not even let my head
go to slumber.

For all that has been and will be
one thing is for certain,
you, my beloved, is an
endless metaphor…

You are a wild fire that burns
my skin with every single touch.
You are the blood that rushes
to my lips to bring out the life in it.

You are the truth that shakes
the very foundation of my soul.
You are the beam of light that illuminates
the deepest abyss of my mind.

You are the faith that uplifts
this fallen spirit of mine.
You are the certainty that erases
every doubt in my heart.

I will stop here for now,
for elucidating you is a limitless venture,
just like my love: unbounded, inexhaustible, enduring
in this finite world of ours.

My first poem for the year. I was torn between writing an ode and a haiku, but look where I ended up… writing a free verse! ^^;
Haha it took me this long to create a new one. I’ve been busy with work and dates for the past months. πŸ˜€

Tim Ho Wan Pork Buns

I’ve always been curious of Tim Ho Wan’s pork buns. I didn’t get the chance to try it when I was in the Philippines due to the long queue at the restaurant in Megamall and also the prejudice that it’s expensive. Last Saturday, after surpassing the obstacles in Forest Adventure (my body aches ’til now huhu), Gid and I went to Bedok Mall to grab something to eat. We were deciding whether to buy a refreshing drink or to have early dinner at Wingstop. While deciding, we happened to pass by Tim Ho Wan. I think Gid noticed the sparkle in my eyes when I saw that there’s no queue and pork buns were only 5$. He immediately suggested that we try it (you’re the best!). When we were browsing the menu, we learned that the 5$ includes 3 pieces of pork buns already.😍 The staff there were nice and very attentive, our order was served fast. As I took the first bite, the softness of the bread surprised me (as if I’m biting snow, kidding). The BBQ pork filling was tasty and had generous portions in each bun. After finishing all three, I think my tummy was highly satisfied as well as Gid’s. It was the best 5$ I spent so far here in Singapore haha! 😜

Another item on my “I wanna eat there” list has been crossed out. We will definitely go back again to taste those heavenly buns. Omnomnom! πŸ™‚

Ateneo, college

Hanging in mid-air.

“Summer break at last!”

“Freedom!”

“Joining the bandwagon, it’s the official start of my vacation!”

These have been trending statuses on facebook and twitter since last week. Students are already free from their academic requirements and responsibilities. Now, they can move on to the next phase of their life as college students, from freshman to sophomore to junior and lastly to senior year.

In my case, I’m still stuck between the fine line of junior and senior year. Why? It’s because of Ma20.2 (also known as Calculus for Computer Scientists) grade. I am hanging in mid-air because of this subject. I don’t know what will be my fate after the release of grades. Β Failing this subject means that I will say goodbye to my school. T______T

Since after our finals, I had this weird feeling in my stomach as if I want to vomit. (LOL, I’m not preggy k? :))) There’s this sinking feeling that made it hard for me to breathe. I’m really worried about the results of my finals. 😦 I know to myself that I was not able to reach the score I needed to pass. People keep on telling me that I will pass. That I should believe. That there’s still hope. They don’t know what I’m feeling right now, how much this pressure is choking me and why I’m acting as if there’s no hope. Β I can truly relate with the concept of hanging in mid-air. It gives you a sense of vulnerability and helplessness you don’t know how long will you hold on. Or at worse cases, hanging in mid-air is like waiting for something that will either save you or remove your grasp from the thing you’re holding on. It’s really hard to hold on when you’re beginning to lose hope, especially when you have been “denied” several times by the invisible force you believed in.

When life, gets hard, it's like hanging onto something... and feeling helpless.

I don’t know whether I should still believe. This happened before and He failed me. I don’t want to get hurt again so as early as now I’m trying to detach myself from people who are dear to me as well as accept the uncertain future that lies in front of me.

I have no one to blame for this but myself. That’s why I am really disappointed with myself. It’s really sad that no matter how much effort you put on something, they’re still in vain. 😦

I’m just getting tired of this life. I don’t know… I guess I need to breathe. Β Whatever will be the outcome of this ordeal of mine predicts my future. All I can do as of now is to believe since my friends are the ones who hope and pray for me. I guess, I need to do the same for them.

I cannot promise that I’ll be strong after this. But I’ll try… >_<
