On trying to stay away…

On trying to stay away…

I’m distancing myself from you. From every glance, every smile, every sound of your voice, reassurances, and most importantly, your touch. I want to stay away from it all, knowing too well that, as always, it is a one-sided love affair that has somehow caught me and is slowly encapsulating me. No. Not again. I no longer want to conceal my love for anyone, and love them from the backdrop. No. Not again. So, I’ll say it out loud. I’ll…

Intoxicated

Intoxicated

Yours are the eyes that I would not mind being trapped into. Like the hole to Wonderland, I’d creep right in and swirl down the abyss of your nostalgia, your numbness will block all sorts of clues that I’ve been there, seen it all, and tried to kiss it away to no avail. But I would gladly dive in again, a million times if I must, for your windows need cleaning to see I’m out here and in there screaming….

The Things I Don’t Tell People

The Things I Don’t Tell People

There are days that I just couldn’t find the will to get out of bed. I guess we all do, although unlike most people it’s never just because I want to get more sleep. There are days wherein I stay in bed for hours staring blankly at the ceiling rethinking and rewinding situations that happened years ago or maybe a few days ago. They danced inside my head as I stare at the cracks, and I would ften I find…

Imagining Things

Imagining Things

It might have been easier if I had said something or just turned and walked away the moment I felt it. But I didn’t. I try imagining what my life would have been like if I had opened my mouth and told him I liked him, but instead, I kept on imagining how empty and even more boring my life would be without him in it. I have known him for a while, it was nothing too grand, nothing too…

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Biking at Emerald Ave.

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Biking at Emerald Ave.

My good friends Kim/Krissie and Aaron decided to teach me how to ride a bike one Sunday afternoon in Emerald Ave. in Ortigas Center. It was fun though it felt like they forced to teach me just because they wanted to ride a bike themselves. Yes, that’s right. I don’t know how to ride a bike, and yes my dad didn’t teach me as a child. THERE IS SOME MAJOR LAPSE IN MY SKILL SET AND I’M OKAY WITH THAT!…

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Climbing Mt. Paliparan, Tanay, Rizal

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Climbing Mt. Paliparan, Tanay, Rizal

Last June 24th, my work friends and I trekked Mt. Paliparan. We’ve been planning for it for nearly a month, and to be honest, excited though I was, the thought of trekking again after over a year of no rigorous physical activity frightened me. Nonetheless, it was an incomparable and unforgettable experience which I am grateful to have been a part of. To be even more honest, this was the first mountain I reached the peak of. My previous hikes…

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | I Had a Haircut!

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | I Had a Haircut!

Lately, I have been contemplating whether to cut my hair or not and I have finally decided to chop it off before my hike last June. Why? Well, I wanted to start doing things truly independently. I have been living alone for years, but I still consult my mom even with my smallest decisions. I know it’s way too deep for a haircut, but to me, it means the world. For once, I have become a little more fearless and…

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | What’s in my purse?

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | What’s in my purse?

Welcome once again to my vlog! For my third entry: Earlier this month my good friend Aaron came by my flat, slightly drunk with a box of half-eaten (giant) burger that we tried to finish over brandy and a box of pizza. Here’s also a sneak peak of what my friends and I do at work when we should probably be working.      

22 Prime, Discovery Suites

22 Prime, Discovery Suites

22 Prime is the perfect place to take one’s significant other on a special date night or anniversary. It is also the right place to seal business deals or enjoy a brunch with one’s family on a Sunday morning. Located on the 22nd floor of Discovery Suites in Ortigas Center, 22 Prime is a high-end steakhouse that offers mouth-watering dishes. Here are some of the dishes I’ve tried on my visit: For starters, we were served lobster bisque which is…
