The Introvert

I know I’ve said this before but I noticed that a majority of the people I know from the blogging / social media world are actually introverts.  Well, they may appear as extroverts during events and gatherings but I would usually catch them in their downtime wearing a do not disturb me face. 🙂 Hehehe.

Fickle Fickle Me

This is the downside of letting your heart decide on things that involve logistics & logic. It gets pretty…hmm…tippy.  Now I know why I earned that nickname IRL. 😛 Tippy apparently means unstable.  That is, not to be confused with Tipsy which I earned from some other life event. Anyway, This is how Ponggo &

Forgive and Forget

So I was having a conversation with my dad the other day.  I noticed that our lines were familiar.  It’s practically an old discussion repeating itself.  I told him, “Why are you so kind? You always forget what they’ve done to you!?”  I told him to forgive but never forget.  Well, of course, I sounded

Worst Case Scenario

For the nth time, while watching a documentary, I blurted out my usual line “What if there are snakes?”  Ponggo hates me for this.  I don’t know why this is my default question whenever he brings up the topic of plants, hiking, forest & desert. Hehehehe.  Don’t get me wrong though, I enjoy hiking.  Once

One night, one of my classmates from high school commented on my personal Facebook post & said, “I remember you had one of the nicest penmanships” to which Ponggo replied, “Are they blind?!?!” The other week, Ponggo & I were editing a video.  He was checking the script I prepared & here’s how the convo went:

Soft Sell Versus Hard Sell

A cousin of mine would sit down & talk to me for an hour about a new beauty product, its benefits, why, why, why I should buy it and why it’s better compared to the other brands I use.  I would laugh & tease her. “You sound like a salesperson and to think you’re not

Other Uses of a Mobile Phone

Every time I have to convince a friend to join us on a scary theme park ride, they always ask, “What’s the point of all this? Why do we need to scare ourselves?”  I go on gladly explaining that we are living in a time & place (at least within 200 kilometers of where I

Where Is Your Heart?

My friend shared how good it felt to follow one’s heart & this was my response.  Anyway, I was just scrolling through all the files & searching for the latest post & I just realized we have a lot of entries that start with who, what, when, where, how & why!  Read on & review

Short-Lived Apology

Hello, hello!  We’re back once again!  Ponggo & I had a tough but very productive and fulfilling working weekend.  We ended it nicely with a filling dinner and a quick skate at the rink.  Since were were sleep-deprived and tired by Sunday night, we were didn’t necessarily in the cheeriest of dispositions.  [May I also

One of the gifts that I appreciated the most while I was growing up was this thick dictionary.  Lol.  (Geek! Sorry, you can’t UNgeek a geek).  If you’ve been reading the blog for a long time, you would know by now that I’m not much of a writer and I don’t have a huge vocabulary.

Something to Complain About

Life in the 21st century has become conveniently inconvenient and thanks to social networking, not a week passes by without anyone having something to complain about how a “friend” or relative behaves online! The bad news is, there is no middle ground.  Posting anything as in ANYthing or even your mere absence will earn you

Speaking in Code

Our first ever fight back when we were still dating (umm…more than 10 years ago) was pretty much about this.  When I said yes he thought I was really saying yes but he didn’t know that I was secretly hurting slash dying inside. Apparently, for certain people yes is yes and no is no.  For

Last Christmas I Gave You My…

Gift-giving is probably not the most exciting part of our relationship.  After so many years of trying, Ponggo has finally given up on me.  I have way too many comments about all the presents he has given me.  One year, he tries to guess the clothes I might like.  Last Christmas, he bought me stuff that
