Sisters

More than half of my life, I’ve been missing these girls.
I love you.

It’s my Mama and Papa’s 27th Wedding Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary, folks!
I’m so lucky to have you as my ‘rents.
Here’s to 50 more years! Cheers!


Imagine it’s August 2021…

Woah! I am way behind on my Daily Posts. Like 7 topics behind!

And it’s all because I got stuck with Topic#218, which is:

Imagine it’s August 2021 – what is your life like?

What will be my life like 10 years from now?
I have got to admit that the answer is: I have no idea!

This topic just shows my lack of plan or vision in life.
I really have to think deep about this one.
And it’s hard because I am living on the philosophy of “No Day But Today.”

How could I betray this principle? These are the words that help me make it through each day. Without this mantra, I would have been scared sh*t everyday I have been living in the real world. Always terrified of what the future might bring.

“There is no future. There is no past.
I live this moment as my last.”

So I tend to NOT think of what 10 years from now might be like.

However, seeing and living with my family for a month (lately) made me realize that I’ve got to start doing something for the future. Or at least start planning on how I could help them in the future. Not for me, but for them. The philosophy of “No day but today” does sound a little selfish. It really does not help when there’s family involved. So I am asking from our Lord above to help me accept that the future is going to happen. And good or bad, happiness or heartbreaks, I hope that He gives me strength to face it all. FOR FAMILY.

So I won’t imagine 2021 but i PRAY for 2021.
I pray that by 2021, my mom and dad won’t need to work anymore. They would be just enjoying life, doing whatever they want to do.
I pray that by 2021, my sisters will be strong, independent, and (most of all) happy in whatever they will be doing in life.
I pray that by 2021, I will still be here– able to help them.


Do-Anything-You-Want Day!

quoting The Daily Post:

Topic #212:

If you could spend a day doing anything you wanted, what would you do?

This is a very easy question for me.

If I could spend a day doing ANYTHING I wanted, I would want to spend it with my family.
It does not matter what activity we would be doing or where we would be doing it, as long as we are together having a laugh.

I know… so emo… but I can’t help it.
I have less than a week left to spend at home and already I am holding back tears.
Back to reality. Back to work.

(Okay. Deep breaths. Compose yourself.)

Anyway, this family bonding time would be so much funner if we are visiting a place we’ve all never been before. And just to put the day dreaming into full mode, I would like for us to wake up in a gorgeous hotel room and order a room service breakfast while watching TV and figuring out what to do for the day. Then we would just explore the tourist spots of the place; take lots of pictures; eat lots of local dishes; and then finally end the day by watching a movie or a concert or any musical show.

(Okay. End of day dream. Wake up.)
