Hi Kuya Rhad, 

You’re so Rhad!  Charot. 

Recently, karamihan (kung di man lahat)  ng post mo,  puro pang-brokenhearted at pang-sawi. Nagtataka ako kasi alam ko masaya ka naman sa kanya.  Bakit biglang may ganyan? (ramdam ko yung sobrang in love tas parang biglang bagsak yung relasyon nyo, feeling ko ganun) 

Nagpaka-stalker ako ng slight.  Tinignan ko account nya at tinignan ko din tumblr mo,  baka sakaling andun ang sagot kaso wala (wala pa nung time na yun). 

Ilang araw din na sa tuwing may post ka,  inaabangan ko iniisip ko “OK na kaya si Kuya? “. Binabasa ko looking for clues, although din rin naman kita nakakausap ng personalan o kahit biruan. (pero follower mo ko since tumblr days, wayback 2011 pa!) Lurker lang pero nag-aalala ako. 

Hanggang sa nagpost ka ng “Boyfriend for rent” selfie. Nasabi kong “ahh, medyo umo.okey okey na :D”

Gusto kong malaman yung nangyari pero di ko na tatanungin. Masaya akong sumasaya ka na ulit (kahit pa’no). 

Kuya Rhadson, kung ano man yan alam mong lilipas din yan. Matatapos din yan, at dahil dyan makakasulat ka nanaman ng magandang libro. :mrgreen: Gaya nga ng sabi sa quote sa One More Chance, “baka kaya tayo iniiwan ng taong mahal natin….” alam mo na yun, haba eh. 😂

Basta, kaya mo yan.

Kapag BGC life ka na, makakapagpa.pirma na ko ng libro sayo (sa wakas!).

Till then Kuya.Aja!

Dear You,

I wrote my first letter for you four years ago.  Sobrang ibang iba pa ang sitwasyon noon. :)Bakit ako sumulat ulit? Wala lang. Masaya ako na sa wakas,  mukhang Ok na Ok na kayo.) Sa tuwing nakikita ko yung pictures nyo,  masaya akong makita na masaya ka. 

Kailan kaya kayo ikakasal?  I hope soon.  🙂

Keep it up a d God bless,  Weisz. 

Just (Another) Quick One : Hobbies,  Passion and Being a Mom

I was looking at my Instagram feed when I saw this photo by one of my high school friends. An aspiring photographer who takes above average photos (not that I have high standards) and he,  just like me,  loves using nature as his subject.

I went on looking at his photos when I realized that I used to love taking photos and looking at nature photography.  Now,  I just love looking at them.

I know most parents experience this at one point especially stay-at-home moms like me.  That moment when you suddenly just miss doing those things that you’re terribly passionate about,  like photography for instance. You can feel the passion,  the excitement and the anticipation thinking when you can do the things you used to do. Somehow imagining what you would do and where you’d go to when you get the chance. For a minute,  you’re flying there planning with a little too much bit of excitement.

15-minute Freestyle with a Twist

Minsan kahit na napakarami kong gustong isulat, walang lumalabas na salita sa isip ko. Writer’s block na ba ito? Eh hindi naman ako writer. Bakit nga ba ganito? Minsan, kung kailan wala akong papel at ballpen at kung kailan malayo ang cellphone ko, tsaka ako maraming naiisip na isulat.

Nakakasuya. Nakakainis. Nakakabwisit. Nakakapanlumo.

Minsan mapipilitan kang mag-post ng mga bagay na walang kalatuy-latuy at sabaw na post kasi yung idea mo, wala na. O kaya naman, kung kailan pwede ka na magsulat, wala ka namang idea. Pareho lang ang ending: WALA PA RIN!

At ngayon, ito! Nauwi sa 15-minute freestyle dahil wala talaga. Yung utak ko, lutang nanaman. Walang iisang thought. Maraming istoryang hindi mapagkabit-kabit.

Sulat ng sulat, pangtanggal muna ng pressure at stress.

Baka sakaling mamaya, okay na ulit.

Baka sakaling mamaya, makapag-sulat na ulit.

Baka sakaling mamaya, umalis na yung babaeng nakatingin sa bintana namin.

Tang ina. Good night!

Review: Olay Rose and Milky Body Wash

It’s early in the morning one day before our first wedding anniversary when I received a text message from a Zoom delivery guy asking about my location and if I can receive the package. I immediately checked if I ordered anything online recently ’cause I’m pretty sure I’m not expecting any deliveries.  I even thought my husband have some surprise for me. 😂😂😂 I got busy with our kids that I completely forgot about it. It’s already dark when Ate Celia gave me the package.

Got this #GlowingBella kit from @bdjbuzz and @olayphilippines one day before our first wedding anniversary. #perksofabella

It’s the new Olay Rose and Milky White Body Wash. I’m really surprised that I used it right away.


One of the best things that I love about this body wash is that it leaves my skin feeling silky soft, smooth and moisturized all day.  It really gives the benefit of a whitening bar and moisturizing effects as promised. The rosy scent is amazing too! I just love this product. Will definitely recommend this.


Still Hoping (sigh)

When I was planning for college, the only university that I really wanted to get into is UP (University of the Philippines).  Guess what?  I fail simply because I  I didn’t know the RightMinusWrong rule.  I failed by a margin in one part of the entrance exam,  Math. I didn’t  go in any review centers as well. *sigh*

Well,  since I failed in UP,  I started checking on other universities.  PUP (Polytechnic University of the Philippines)  is the only one where I am determined to go. I passed the entrance exam with 81.96%, all the courses that I chose are still open and technically,  I just need to attend the orientation (not to mention that their rate per unit is only Php12.00. Yep. Twelve fucking pesos per unit!)

My dad,  on the other hand,  is against it. He said since it’s in Sta. Mesa,  Manila, Continue reading

Old Letters and Old Blogs

I mentioned it before that I actually have several blogs both in wordpress and tumblr. I decided to leave those blogs for some reason and decided to focus in this one.  Well,  earlier I visited M and J’s Facebook profile to check on them.  She have this special place in me where I’ll always wish her to have the best in everything.  I used to write anonymous open letters before and she’s the first one to receive it. 

Anyway,  I decided to visit my WordPress blog wherein I added my old Tumblr blog posts (before deleting it) to look for the letter and there,  I realized how different everything was back then. My ideas,  independence,  all the photos I took,  EVERYTHING!  

For a moment,  I thought of merging those posts in this blog as well,  but then… that will kinda destroy it’s purpose. 

It feels good to reminisce.  And for M,  I’ll definitely do another letter for her.
