YOLO

I was asked once what my goal in life was. I remember answering: “To pay my credit card off.” I did, so where does that leave me? Usually, people my age would want to save up for a new car, a new house and possibly, a tour around the world. Blessed with a very hardworking grandfather, a loving mother and a kuripot gene that never seems to fail, I have achieved them all before the …

She believed she could, so she did.

It was a cold April 27 when I was laying in bed lecturing myself how I wasted my life away. Recently resigned, only about 50k left on my bank account, single, mother sick, dad mad, and so on… My life was falling apart. I have a very bad habit of giving it my all when I fall in love and lose myself whenever my mom gets a relapse. The endless cycle has always been the …

From 180 to 130

  It was May of 2010 that I realized it was all over. My fiancé of almost 3 years has finally reached strike 40+3 (40 women he tried to sleep with from myspace and 3 women he actually slept with during our relationship). It didn’t take him long at all to decide to walk away from me. “Let’s face it, Gail. It will never work. I don’t want you anymore.” It was painful enough that …

How my mom gave me double dds :)

LADIES & GENTLEMAN! The recipe for big breasts is: AVOCADO SHAKE- ½ avocado, 3 tablespoons of milk and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Drink twice a day- morning & night. According to my mom, I had started drinking it at the age of 5 twice a day until I was 6 or 7 and since then, my breasts never stopped growing until I turned 21. When I started elementary, I was a size 36 cup a. …

Pakipot

Pakipot daw ako. I didn’t know what it meant. It was a strange new word that I’ve never heard before. With my not so vast vocabulary in Filipino I had assume that this word PAKIPOT is a mix of: PAKI + IPOT= Pakipot, meaning Please poop. I rationed that it means, “Shit ka.” Pakipot was just another way of saying it. When I went home, I had asked my yaya what it meant. See my …

Goodbye is another chance to love better

People tend to forget how to a person. The feeling that was once there is soon lost. Trapped in each other’s world. No room to breathe. Bounded by the shackles of love. It ceases everything else in this world that expects much from you. Love becomes suffocating than inspiring but that person still holds on. A glimmer of the passion that existed between the two is disappearing. “If only,” was all about that. People kill …

Road to 150

Road to 150

I’m overweight and I feel depressed over it. I’m tired of checking my old pictures and saying “That was me 4 years ago… that one was 6.” I get overly affected when people jokingly say “What happened? What made you fat?” It hurts me without saying directly to my face that I look different. I’ve started so many ways to lose weight and I’ve done it before too but maintaining it has always been my …

How to forgive yourself for moving on

How to forgive yourself for moving on

“Start the day with a smile.”  I usually tell this repeatedly to my used to be beau. I say it to him every morning to gently remind him to be calm. Being with him for almost 4 years, it was a skill I acquired to be such a blind lover. Don’t get me wrong. I was madly in love with him despite his flaws.  He tormented me everyday yet I loved him as if he …

Araw Araw Sunday

I met him by accident. It was one of those times as if fate was acting upon us unknowingly. My ex asked me to buy a scooter, a Mio, to be specific. I wanted a white one but somehow, the purple coloured one always stood out. Hence, my Mio was painted purple. Then I found TVMP – Team Violet Mio Philippines. In all honesty, I just wanted to be part of a club that had …
