A Test of Friendship

A Test of Friendship
We used to be close friends even closed to sisters. We used to share some ideas and some heartaches. We used to share some happy moments. We used to go on an out of town escapades. We used to share some secrets.We used each other “FRIEND”....
But what happened to us? We became cold as ice. We became strangers in some ways. We parted ways, not even talked about what happened to us. I felt that I am no longer part of world, the same way you felt that you are not part of my world. I am not the first who pushed myself away. Remember, that we used to share merienda before, but then HE came into my life, then you gave us space even if we did not asked for it. There’s always time for friendship and romance. And that moment is meant for our friendship and not for romance for Him. Many things happened in the past, that I already opened up. All those things that I’ve waited for so long to unleash.Things that might have been broken our friendship and built a very high wall in between us.
I think...I’ve said enough....all the things that blocked our friendship. We can no longer go back to those days and make some changes, but we can start from where we left behind. How? I don’t know.... What’s important for me is that you know how I felt before. And that it may lower down the barriers between us.
It may not be that simple and easy...but who knows....

Banana Split Friendship

She was a total stranger to me at first. A partner of a former classmate. A woman behind a man was all I know about her. I can't even remember if I actually met her at her partners' September 2004 birthday celebration. That's how petty my memory about her. Then days, weeks and months passed by, I began to know her not just my friends' partner but a simple woman with so much things to share with you. Our closeness started with a sensitive event in my life.I shared some sensitive thoughts with her.And to be honest, I even appreciated that event in my life. Though, it's just a one day sadness of my life and I even lost somebody,but it equates a lifetime friendship from her.We used to go out and eat banana split without parterns in a cold rainy day.And that's how it all started. That BANANA SPLIT FRIENDSHIP. It's been years since then, we rarely go out and that banana split event didn't happened again, but wishin' there'll be next time.We may not see each other to be called as friends, buddies or pals but distance is not a hindrance to our so called BANANA SPLIT FRIENDSHIP. Thank you for being there....We even have something in common, right Mariel?

"I Offer My Life"

Just wanna share something short and simple yet religious one...
Last Saturday, while attending the 4:45pm mass at the Our Lady of Perpetual Succour at Siglap Hill, this one song that really struck my mind and soul. "I OFFER MY LIFE" song was sung during the offertory. With what is happening right now, not only to me but to everybody around the world, it is only God who knows what is best for us and we should offer ourselves to Him wholeheartedly. We should wait for Him painstakingly to grant our wishes, no matter how long it takes. He knows what is best for us. Don't be in a rush on getting what you wanted. In God's time, it will be granted. We should not question Him if we are now facing some difficulties in life. Always remember that if we are now troubled with problems, God knows that we are strong enough to handle them...
I won't rush Him to answer my prayers right away. I will wait.. I know if it's really meant to be, then it will be fulfilled. In His time. Now, I will just offer my life to Him.
Please listen to the song...

My Singapore Life

Have you ever thought of living on a foreign land away from the polluted air of Manila, from the flooded streets of Malabon City and away from traffic jams of Edsa?
Have you ever thought of earning dollars and not peso?
Well, that’s what every Filipino dreamt of.
That’s what I dreamt of.
December 19, 2008 – THE JUDGEMENT DAY!
I passed my resignation. AAP has been my comfort zone for about nine years. I met new friends and better friends as well. I never thought that I gained that enough courage to get out of my comfort zone. My journey is about to start.
January 18, 2009 – LEAVING ON A JETPLANE
I left the Philippines at exactly 0625H through Cebu Pacific Flight Number 5J801. This is it! A new chapter in my life is about to start in 3 hrs 40 mins (time of my flight to Singapore). I felt excited and scared. Nobody knows what lies ahead of me.
Six months had passed.... 02Jul09
Here I am...still in on a foreign land away from the polluted air of Manila, from the flooded streets of Malabon City and away from the traffics jams in Edsa.
Sobrang kakamiss din pala ang pollution sa Manila. Pati na ang baha sa Malabon City na di madaanan kapag umuulan na lang. Pati na din ang traffic sa bus lalo na pag rush hour na. Dito kasi naka-synchronized ang mga bus.
I never thought na mami-miss ko sila ngaun.
Dito kasi pag sumakay sa taxi or any cab kailangan mo mag-seatbelt samantalang sa Pinas eh deadma lang tau dun. Dito kasi may penalty ang mahulihan na hindi naka-seatbelt. Syempre kahit hindi na ako empleyado ng AAP, dapat dala ko pa din ang advocacy ng responsible motorist. Di ko pa pala na-mention na kapag nagbayad ka dito sa taxi driver, susuklian ka pa (kahit cents na lang), unlike sa Pinas, palagi na lang ang dahilan eh walang barya.
Walang bagyo dito pero pag umulan naman eh may kasabay na malakas na kulog at kidlat. Tingnan mo na lang ang ginawa ng kidlat kay Merlion last 28Feb09.

(naka-coma si Merlion! tinamaan siya sa bandang likod niya kaya kailangan na ayusin muna para sa mga turista)

Di ko pa din ipagpapalit ang Pinas sa Singapore. Dito kahit sobrang tahimik, sobrang linis at safe ka na lumabas kahit madaling araw. Til next blog. Share ko naman ang mga experiences ko dito sa Singapore.
