Of journals and diaries, a project.

I have always wanted to write. That’s why I have kept journals ever since I can remember. From a Kiki and Lala hardbound diary during my elementary days to those recycled paper notebooks of Papemelroti all throughout my highschool and college days.

It was only here in Singapore that I stopped writing. I wasn’t able to find the time to write down my feelings and chronicle all the things that happened during my first few years here. Oh, and the stories I could tell!

I’ve always wanted to write, so now, I will try my hand in writing about things I know. My bestfriend suggested that I write about Filipinos living here in Singapore. Well, maybe, I’ll try to write about my life here first, then eventually move on to other topics and other people’s lives as I go along.

I’m excited about this. I also plan to publish this, might as well dream big!


I want MORE!

I’m so tired! I can enumerate to you all the reasons why I am, but I’d rather not. I actually prefer to count my blessings instead, but unfortunately, all those things escape me right now. Well, to start with, I have my health, my family and friends, I have a job, a nice house I come home to, nice material things, oh, I can go on and on and on.

But, being human, I WANT MORE! And since no one knows about this sweet blog of mine yet, I will enumerate those things that I want, as I go along, writing here.

I will inadvertently *wink, wink* write in my future entries those blessings I want, so keep your eyes peeled!

Hong Kong 2009

This was my Hong Kong trip last October 2009. Stayed there for four days and three nights with my highschool friend, Nikki. We both were not good with directions (admittedly, Nikki was better with directions than me) but we managed just fine.

We went to several spots in the HK City area, Ocean Park, and the nicest surprise of all was we got to eat at a Jollibee Fastfood restaurant which was beside the Central MTR station. We actually ran to the restaurant when we spotted it from the across the street.

worry ends when FAITH BEGINS.

and faith ends when worry begins.

I heard that from Chico and Delamar’s “Quotes that Inspire” (August 27, 2009). And I REALLY NEED TO REMEMBER THAT.

I’ve been so anxious and worried so much lately and listening to this topic reminds me to keep my faith. I’ve been so thinking about so many things, I’ve been near paranoia and it’s driving me nuts.

I need to be reminded of those things, not only that, I need to believe that everything will be alright.


A Rollercoaster Ride

So, is this my new journal then?

I have to keep myself busy, if not I’ll go crazy. I want to do so many things but I think I have lost my desire and drive.  I can’t wait for 2010, this year has been a rollercoaster ride, and I want to get off right now!

I wish I could work in another country like in Australia or California or New York! Whew! But I don’t think I can take New York just yet. Maybe in a few years. Then I can rant and rave in this blog from there. Sweet!

Finding Myself Again (Journal entry last 16 June 2008)

I like looking at the sky, the clouds slowly passing by, the first thing I see when I wake up, looking at my window. It’s peaceful here, inside this square of a room. No traffic noise, no vehicles coming and going, and no instantaneous burst of a weekend band’s noise to shock me awake during weekend mornings.

This is my third night here and I couldn’t feel more content—except of course when I find a job already-which I know, in God’s grace-to be soon. I feel this is a good place for me.

This is a renewal, I have been through a lot of things-things I would like to forget-but those things made me strong. Those things changed me. I know I’m slowly becoming my old self again. I have tried to be strong on my own for so long, and it’s hard.

I’d like to be myself again, I’d like to be the same trusting, prayerful and faithful person I was before. I know I’ll be that soon enough. I know because I’m laughing the way I used to really laugh.

I know that for my life to change for the better I have to stick to my principles. I know by doing this, better things will come along.

Hope is a good thing to have. It gives your movement purpose and soul. It is like the bones in your flesh. Faith is what keeps you going, it’s that belief that He is with you and helping you, that all of these has a reason. But then, love is what I would really like to know as I don’t think I have really felt it yet.

Goodbye Facebook, hello WordPress!

I have deactivated my Facebook account and I sorely miss it, that’s why I’m trying my hand in blogging. Let’s see how long I continue doing this. I think this will be fun, because first of all, I got the blog name I wanted and I now have a venue to pour my heart out, rant, rave and post pictures. I’m still on the fence whether to tell my friends about this blog or not. I think it will be more fun if I remain anonymous though.

And I can say anything I want, so world, ready or not, here I come!
