A Single Woman’s Day Off

Day Off ❤️

Being single at 25 is not the way I imagined it when I was 16. When I started studying in college, I told myself that by 25, I should have at least a half million pesos in my savings, out of La Union, working in Manila or abroad, and a perfect man by my side. Working and living in Bahrain from early 2013 up to June of this year made me realize a lot of things I never thought I would be living with now that I’m only a few months away before turning 26.

No Labels

There are times when we start questioning the actions that seem normal to us but unusual to some people.
I thought… would change.

I thought… would improve.
But nothing has really changed.
We speak of words that we think we own. We do an act that we think is appropriate to the situation. We look at other people like we know them, by the clothes they wear, the people they are with during meals, and the way their eyes smile when drinks start to pour in. But do we really know them? Do we really know who we are to them? We must know who we are to ourselves, which is the most important.
But do we know who we are to the people we care about? Why? Why do we need to know? I spoke about the meaning of without labels in the past and right now, it has come upon me of the situation. It started to feel normal and there are not expectations.

We might enjoy the unknown road but without a direction and a destination, it will always be empty at every horizon.

Sincerely,

No long weekend for me

I wanted to share this small thing Siri said to me last week when I was very tired from the long weekend at work. I haven’t used Siri for a long time because I turned it off when it went through an upgrade. I decided to ask Siri something I never thought she’d answer in an interesting way.  Continue reading “No long weekend for me”

Relaxing View in LU: Hidden behind Lighthouse

_DSC3706

Last week was very busy due to the long weekend at work. But before the long weekend hit my work, I was able to spend some time exploring a hidden part of Poro Point which I only see in photos showed by my colleagues. Last year, I visited the lighthouse when I came for vacation and didn’t know about this location. And can I mention that it hasn’t stop raining for the last two weeks. It’s getting annoying actually because you can’t go to places with good views due to the flooded areas in San Fernando City and also just outside our house. Yesterday, when I came home from work, it was really pouring and I had no choice but to step in the flooded area before I could reach my parent’s house. Poor shoes of mine, it was its first time to be soaked in flood. I didn’t wear my high heeled boots because I was hopeful that the rain would stop throughout the day since it was mentioned in the news that the typhoon drifted its path towards North and not to PH. Anyways, here are some photos I took.. Continue reading “Relaxing View in LU: Hidden behind Lighthouse”
