Taking Chances

there are times that we have to let go of something in order to gain more. it may hurt us in the process yet these are opportunities for us to grow and be the best person that we can be. moving forward may mean trekking the unknown but how will we find out the things ahead if we are not going to venture on? life may be unpredictable and chances are things may happen differently than what we wanted--then again things happen for a reason. it may be tough at times but lessons are learned more. Bravery is one trait measured by how we face reality yet hold on to our dreams.

taking chances at times are what's best...taking chances to love, to grow, and to tread the waters and see how vast the ocean is.....

actually i'm just gonna share a song by Celine Dion. A toast to moving on and taking chances....


Finally, after more than 24 hours in waiting it's fully released! here's the first full trailer to Twilight Saga's "Eclipse". check it out!!! (can't wait to see the film)

It's a good day and hopefully tomorrow will be better.Justify Full

I started my evening (@ work) smiling but definitely not in the mood to write. I was thinking too much on stuff that concerns me, my family, and me again (not that I'm self centered or anything--just worried). I was feeling lousy 'till I saw something--a light in the darkness.

Today, March 10, 2010 the 10-second teaser to the trailer of the third Twilight installment "Eclipse" is out! ha! the full trailer will premier tomorrow....

A toast to better days ahead (I know this is so shallow but I just can't help it--GO ROBSTEN!)

Here's the said teaser...

Understanding my brother's vanity

Understanding my brother’s vanity can sometimes be hilarious.

Firstly I am the eldest and therefore should be the role model.
Secondly I am the girl and therefore should be very conscious of my looks.
Thirdly I am the one with work and should therefore be more capable of buying and trying out products (I think it is but normal at my age not to mention).

So it was funny (and weird) enough for me to find a milk mask solution together with the lotion at our place in Sorsogon. At first I was thinking it was my sister's, but when I asked her she told me it was Jay's. Knowing how vain my brother was hearing this was not surprising at all (however I can't help myself but laugh that he had to go this far).

I was completely use to the fact that he's vanity kit is more packed with beautifying solutions from facial soaps to lotions to moisturizers to facial scrubs; take note they are more branded than mine. The milk mask was something new to me.

After learning that it was jay's, I tried it (ignorance can make a fool out of man and I don't want to be that fool). Feeding my curiosity I read the instructions and did what was stated. If there was something to describe the experience it was that it felt like I was placing PVA glue on my face. Doing this in front of the mirror was like watching "Art Attack".

So there I did it and I have to let it sit on my face for 10 to 20 minutes. While waiting the replay of American Idol was on so I just sat on the couch and watched the "dark horse" did that amazing belting (while I feel like a dork for putting that mask on).

After 10 minutes (I don't want to push on for 20).....

I returned to in front of the mirror and started peeling the mask off. Again if there was one thing to describe the feeling it was like removing a disguise those done in "Mission Impossible". After pasting--err--placing the gooey stuff on my face peeling it off was fun. After my face was cleared of it I must admit it was smoother.

1.The product was effective.
2. The whole experience made me think of myself as someone crazy.
3. My brother is definitely vainer than I thought he was.
4. Good thing I never have much breakout on my face to need the milk mask--for that was the first and last.

On being alone

I have no idea as to how long can a magnet hold on to the metal except for the fact that the hands of time waits patiently for it to happen.

Just like friendship, there are times that the closest of buddies needs to part ways. There are times that we may feel different about it but this is how the story goes in real life. We connect and eventually we let go. It is sad to part ways especially if the heart is involved but it is during these times that we learn about practicality and how to face reality.

It is up to us how we'll hold on to dear faith knowing that there are things ahead which are far greater than those we let go; lessons are but part of them. It is normal to say that denial is but part of it and giving in will eventually follow--accepting it! It is part of growth and we can't deny ourselves that.

I guess the least we can all do is to move on....

Q and A

There are things which we at times can't understand yet are meant to happen for a reason.

Lately, I must admit, going to work is looking forward to that one hour break where we have to turn off our computers and go to the pantry to have our Q and A sessions. It may have started just last week (or was it two weeks ago) but it is definitely one crazy ride. There are certain things that I have noticed and realized about whatever it is that's bothering me. For every conversation we make and as I listen to other people's questions were like having a background check result thrust at me without even asking it. And what benefits did I get?

It gave me the opportunity to know who they really were behind the jokes and the laughs.

The wisdom on things as I see it in their different point of views (a person need not experience things in order to learn).

The fact that I miss a lot of thing: firstly, when I was in manila and secondly, when I was in college

and lastly it's a secret....

it is surprising how people search for answers which are just right there in front of them waiting to be revealed. It made me think how people can be foolish at times to know the answers yet are just waiting to hear them from other people's mouths (guilty!). But I do admit lately when my spirit is down and there they were having snacks while exchanging ideas, it surges that hope that somehow those answers which I’ve always wanted to hear would come to me unexpectedly and everything would be ok.

Thanks to Didi Benami

American Idol is that one reason why I want to go back to sorsogon more than ever recently and stay at home. Didi Benami was that waitress that captured my attention because of her electrifying performance in Hollywood week singing Terrified by Kara Dioguardi.

So she was this one girl whom I believe will definitely be someone people find as charming and interesting with the way she had sung all her song. Recently she gave me another love song to enjoy--"the way I am" by Ingrid Michaels. Totally lovable.

It’s a cute song that at present I can't stop playing...just take me the way I am baby.
