You can thank your stars all you want but
I’ll always be the lucky one

So here’s the first ever love letter that I’ve ever written to a guy..

You already caught my eye the first time I saw you when I had my interview. And after that day, a voice inside me told me that I need to see that guy again. You have heard this several times already but I want to share it with you over and over and over again. Sobrang thankful ako sa Tita ko dahil pinush niya ko mag-apply sa bank. I know God wanted this too. And when I finally accepted the job offer, yung first day ko sa office was actually the most nerve wracking moment in my life. I was actually thinking of you while we were being oriented by the HR. Sabi ko nga sayo diba, may maliit ng part ng pag-dedecide ko na tanggapin yung job offer is because of YOU. I was 50% nervous and 50% excited not only because I am going to my first real job but also because I am finally seeing you again. Your smile was the most beautiful thing that I have seen that day. Sobra yung kaba ko nun (and simpleng kinikilig na din) habang tinutulungan mo ko i-set up yung PC ko, habang binibigyan mo ko ng idea with our work and habang tinatanong mo ko ng random stuffs about me. 2 weeks pa lang ako non, pero do you still remember the time when I told you that I got an offer from JP Morgan but I turned it down? It’s just not because nahihiya ako sa inyo, but also because naiisip ko na baka may chance tayo. And I was right. We started from simple exchange IP messages (the sinful IP to be exact haha), talking about random things so we can get to know each other more. Those IP messages became Facebook chats (ehem) , to casual text messages. In short, wala pang malisya swear hahaha. It lead to something more “special” when you asked me to go on a foodtrip to PUP, but ended up going to Maginhawa St. instead. At first I really thought that it would be just a simple hangout, but no. That “hangout” turned out to be our first date. 🙂 Sabi nga nila, the rest is history.

Fast forward to the now. I am not expecting that you would bring so much impact in my life. I may not be very vocal in expressing my feelings for you like the way you do, I may always find it difficult in saying how I truly feel for you, but there is only one thing that I want you to know. I am beyond thankful that I’ve met you and I really want this relationship to last. All those heartaches of mine in the past were already covered by your love for me. We may have fights or misunderstandings now and then but I know and I believe! that our love for each other will prevail. (May masusunog na bahay pag hindi)

Those first hand experiences, misadventures or whatever you may call them will always have a special spot in my memory bank and in my heart. I am really looking forward to doing those things with you for the 2nd, THIRD, 4th, 5th… time around. Every moment spent with you is just too special for me. Kahit minsan nag-bubullyhan na lang tayo and para na lang mga ewan =)) Sobrang beyond words yung happiness ko whenever we’re together and just like how you can see a future with me, I feel the same way too. Sana ikaw na yung happy ending ko. Sana ikaw na yung lalakeng una kong makikita paggising ko sa umaga and ang last na masisilayan ko sa pagtulog ko.

They say Love hurts. That Love will only cause pain, heartaches, and tears. That it will only bring temporary joy. But the truth is? Love is the greatest thing in the world and being in love is the best feeling you can get out of it. And for me? You show me what it feels like to be in love. Sobrang thank you. And as the line in a song goes, You can thank all the stars all you want but, I’ll always be the lucky one..

Happy 2nd monthsary Tatay! 🙂 I love you!


Here’s To The Ones Who Want To Take Things Slow

Every word clearly speaks what’s in my heart right now.

Thought Catalog


Here’s to the ones who take it slow.

Not because they don’t like you and they’re trying just to delay the inevitable. They’re not trying to let you down easy when they say they want to go slow — really, it’s the opposite, because they like you so much, and that’s terrifying to say. That’s too much, too soon, isn’t it? Is it everything they’re fighting against? Is that what they call ironic?

[tc-related post=”265536″ align=”right”]

And it’s not because they’re unsure about you. They’re as sure as anyone ever could be that this is something special, that this could be something real. They’re not sure that you think so, too, but they’re hopeful, you know. That you could feel this way, that this could be something more than a crazy little crush, a silly little fling. Here’s to the ones who want it to last longer than that…

5 Books You Should Read In Your 20s

Definitely putting this in my to-read list.

Thought Catalog


1. Read During a Big Life Change (Good or Bad)

Suggested Book:Transitions: Making Sense of Life’s Changes — William Bridges

Transitions is a book I found as required reading in one of my graduate classes. I’m glad I was able to discover this book because it’s probably the most powerful one on the list. There are so many transitions going on at this stage; from leaving our parent’s houses, to graduations, to babies, to marriages, to loss of jobs and friends ,and even death and divorce. This book makes sense of those transitions, good or bad. Something about change makes us uneasy, even the good changes.

The book explains three major steps of transition; Endings, Neutral Zone, and New Beginnings. First is the Ending. Endings might sound negative, but they are really just beginnings in disguise. Everyone in a transition has the commonality that…

Could This Be Love?




Could this be love?
I’m feeling drifting up
On ceilings with your touch
Could this be love? (love, love)
‘Cause when we kiss
My heart drops like a bomb
I’m in pieces when you’re gone
Could this be love? (love, love)
Could this be love?


It was Valentine’s Day when you casually chatted me up on Facebook. I thought our conversation would also end on the same day, but you asked for my number and texted me. I actually didn’t think it would lead to something romantic. We weren’t actually strangers with each other because we were sharing the same school service during our elementary years. So to cut the story short, we started texting, calling, and secret rendezvous for 3 times now. The first time was a little bit awkward since we haven’t seen each other in years (2.25.2014), the second was at your place (when after you insisted that I go, and after many times I turned you down, I finally agreed – 3.21.2014), and the third (3.26.2014) time still at your place.The moment you held my hand for the first time, was when I went  to your place, and happened right outside your house when we were just talking. I was actually shocked, but I just kept my cool. I don’t want appear all red and blushing. The third time was actually really memorable though I already forgot the exact details of how it happened but all I know is you kissed me. For all you know, THAT WAS MY VERY FIRST KISS. Again, I was shocked but still I was able to keep my cool. You were all sweet and cuddly, and kept on hugging me. I would not say that I did not like it, because I really did. It was the again, the first time, that I was that very intimate with a guy. I am not telling you this yet but  I am an NBSB, so I guess I don’t need to explain any further. I am really looking forward to more of this, and I would gladly introduce you to my parents just like when you introduced me to yours when I first went to your house.

I would be wiling to take this chance with you, if you feel the same way for me and I am really thankful that God introduced us to each other. Maybe you were the one I have been waiting for all this time. I hope this time would be it. ♥
