My perfect guy is not that perfect after all

Last weekend I witnessed how John is when irritated. It was a shocker to me as I don't usually see him that way. For the past months, I always witness him being so cheerful and so positive. Does seeing his other side turned me off? No! Nobody's perfect. There will be times we get irritated, … Continue reading My perfect guy is not that perfect after all


The big reveal

Last weekend my family along with John and my two aunts went to Baguio. It was a quick well spent weekend. I brought John there as I remembered him saying that he wants to go to a high place in the Philippines.

Dear John

Funny how when you search for things, you don't find them; and when you stopped searching, you would suddenly bump into them. Dear John, when I met you I was totally unsteady. I came from a rocky situation and a very toxic relationship--the worst I ever had. I was hurt and really burned. We matched … Continue reading Dear John

For some, I think they would judge me for that (some might already have). I don't believe in 3 months rule or that there is a certain timing … Continue reading Rainbow after Storm

My own version of Mango Graham Cake

I've been seeing John since May 2017. Since the day we met up, we've been hanging out every weekend. One thing I've learned from John is that he really loves ripe mangoes. Every time we dine in a restaurant, he would always order mango shake and I always order water. Funny that waiters always serve … Continue reading My own version of Mango Graham Cake

Picasso in the making

I'm a Work in Progress. I'm in my mid-20s. I can't tie my hair perfectly. I don't have the ideal figure. I'm a struggling working student juggling work requirements and school stuff. I don't have enough savings in my bank accounts; I still have a long way to go. I am not a finished product. … Continue reading Picasso in the making
