"Sampung bagay na natutunan ko sa mga umiibig"
By: Juan Miguel Severo
Una, napakatamis ng mga simula, ng mga umaga na ang bumubungad sa’yo ay ang kanyang mukha. Nag-aalmusal ka ng kilig at pagdating sa gabi ay baon mo siya hanggang sa paghimbing. Dito, dito mo matututunan ang tunay na kapangyarihan ng isang ngiti, ng ibang kamay na humahawi sa’yong buhok, ng mga mata na sumisisid sa iyong kaluluwa.
At sa wakas, pang-sampu. Mahalin mo pa siya. Sa tingin, sa tanaw, mula sa abo na iniwan ng inyong apoy, mahalin mo pa siya. Pero kung ang pakpak ng pag-ibig ay naging gapos na, kapag ang dating langit sa puso mo ay bilanggo ka, mahalin mo siya sa huling pagkakataon
~ pagkatapos, bitaw na.

I admit that I am not really an organized person. I just drop my things anywhere in the house and go crazy later on in finding it if the time to use it comes. lol! But, this coming year, being organized is included in the list of my new years' resolutions. So to start with, I am planning to invest more on furniture that will hold and organize my things such as book shelf--top priority, new study table, a dresser, additional cabinets etc.
Last Saturday, I bought a new bed for my messy little room. I don't have any idea at first on how to design my room and make it look like a real bedroom which is supposed to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. So since I am not an organized girl, I find the Boho Bedroom ideas suitable for me. Personally, I love the minimalist style of decorating because I find it so relaxing in the eyes and I think it will give me a peace of mind. The black and white shades of room is so okay with me. I am the type of a person who's kinda messy but still love to see the white colors appearing big and large in my eyes. But I know for now I cannot achieve that so I'll stick with the boho style first which is a carefree styling but mostly associated with varieties of colors & prints, baggy accessories, and modern-yet-always-vintage look. You can choose between the traditional & colorful style or that one with a modern or minimalist touch that'll give you a sunny room atmosphere for a more relaxing bedroom. To give you ideas on what I'm trying to say, take a look at these:
1. Moder-Boho-Chic Bedroom Style
2. Classy/Vintage Boho Bedroom Style

Hi there everyone. This post is some sort of a year-ender post before another year unfolds. Actually, I think that such a lot of bad things happened this year... considering my environment and particularly the country that I'm living in. Mostly it involves natural and man-made calamities which put the Philippines into map and headlines around the globe. To mention some in the list were: the 10 billion pork barrel scam (July); the alleged MNLF attack in Zamboanga City (September); the 7.2 magnitude of earthquake in Bohol that destroyed some of the historic, old and famous landmarks in the province (October); and recently, the typhoon Yolanda or Haiyan as known internationally which is recorded as the strongest typhoon ever in history that made a landfall (November). My countrymen's nationalism was really shown and awaken during those times. It made us a appear as the strongest people in the world.
Just like my country, I too had been through calamities and disasters which left scars and fallen hopes in me. But in sha'allah, by Allah's grace, I will surpass it. Last May of this year, my dad lost in the election. It made us devastated--for a while. I was given an extra responsibilities in life since I am the only working 'single' in the family. I have to help my parents in sending my younger brother to school. It was fine, only that I have to cut off some shopping, coffee breaks, and random expenditures. Nevertheless, I know now how it feels like being a parent. I know now how hard it is and at the same time wonderful to be part of someone's success in life; that you become the bridge or instrument in making their dreams come true. It really made me a responsible young adult. I have to say that what I am now, I owe it to my parents. And now it is payback time. I want to make their wishes and dreams for us and their selves come true. in sha allah. On the good side, I think I earned a lot of friends this year, whether in personal or just through some social media that I am linked with. Those people made me smile at my sad days, grounded when I feel like taken by the strong wind of this life, and keep me back in my senses when I feel like lost and wandering.
In the coming year, I just hope and pray that things will get better for me, my family, my country and the entire ummah. That it won't be as tough and rough as this year. I do have a lots of things to accomplish but I just don't know how, where and when to start. So help me God. =)

Hi guys! What can you say about my Audrey Hepburn look? LOL. JUST FOR FUN. It's a product of some powerful photo editor apps that I just installed in my phone. Here's the LINK. Oh, the wonders of photo-editing!
By the way, it's already Friday here, so that means tomorrow will going to be a rest day, wash day, malling day--for most of us, I supposed, but not me. Co'z tomorrow is another examination day. The downside of being a working student. Such is life.
HAPPY WEEKENDS EVERYONE!
