Men are actions.

I could probably not stress this enough, ever since hearing this from a man himself. I am not saying men do not talk much, but mostly, men are all about actions.

Okay ladies, here goes: we all know that women act different from what they actually say. And there are only very few could actually “walk the walk, and talk the talk” ( I am not generalizing, This is clearly what I think. Please dont hate on me ;A; ) but so often, our true feelings come from how we express it. May it be by words or actions.

Earlier, I had a talk with a very good ( and witty ) friend on how ‘men’ are. He told me a lot of things, and I’ll quote some of the good ones:

Men are not stupid. We may think with our dicks, but that doesnt mean we dont have brains.

Listen, you have to understand that men are all about actions. We have balls, and to prove that those balls are balls of steel, we do not speak like women. We show it thru actions. If you live fucking 10 min away or 6 hours away, I will go see you just to be with you. And women think that is normal because we have to do that. But it means more than that. It means I am willing to go to where you are and waste gas or money just to see your smile, and that means everything to us.

There is a very think line between fuck,sex and making love. You dont want a guy who just fucks you and leaves. And if you are in a relationship, you dont want him to have sex with you, you want him to MAKE LOVE to you.

Let’s be honest, us women wants to be loved like how those disney princesses are loved by their princes. But the reality is not everyone gets that, and if you do find someone who treats you like you are the queen of his life, do not mess it up. Nowadays, relationship is about getting together an breaking up. But it should not end up like that. If you could work it out, then work it out. Love is about challenges and making things work. Love is never easy, and it will never be easy. But it doesnt mean it will always be hard. Loving someone is beautiful and being loved back is even more amazing. So ladies, if you do find that person; make sure to love the way you want to be loved.

Francization

Hello my lovely little readers, today I will blog about my french classes that I’m taking right now. Its not just a french language class, its something I need for getting a diploma. There are 8 levels, and right now I am at Niveau 3 (level 3).

Goodbye summer!

As much as I hated the summer heat and how much it burned my skin lol (well, at least for all the tanlines I got) I must say the time for fall has slowly begun. Two days ago the temperature here in Laval dropped to at least 16 from the 24-26 we usually felt during summer. So before I savor the “sweater weather” here are some pictures from my very awesome (sarcastically meaning ‘boring’) summer!

Just Another Pop Confession

Lately I have been watching Pretty Little Liars via ETC and I gotta tell you guys, it got me on my knees! Especially when I found out that Ezra is “A” and that Alison IS Alive! I mean seriously c’mon, those were some plot twists! WEW

Might I add that during the episode where “A” is finally revealed to be Ezra there was this song playing in the back while Aria and Ezra were at the cafe. It was soothing to me and I knew I had to find that song so I immediately got my laptop and searched for the song. At that time I only had a line of the song which was “This Isn’t Control” and guess what? It was the title of the song! Lucky one, I didnt have to search any further :D

I also found out that the song was sung by a new American Pop-Duo called “MS MR” (pronounced as “Miss Mister”) comprised by Lizzy Plapinger and  Max Hershenow.  They have released their Debut Album last May 2013 titled “Secondhand Rapture” and I am lucky to have it in my iPod! Its now my current new fave as their songs remind me of the 80’s beat mixed with the pop culture of today. Not to mention their songs have been featured in Pretty Little Liars too! How awesome is that? *confetti shower!*

Celebrating Lola’s 68th at Vikings

This post was supposed to be for August 28 (my Grandma’s birthday) but yea. Laziness got me. haha!

As I mentioned in my other posts before this, I celebrated my birthday at Vikings Luxury Buffet at the Mall of Asia.  After eating there, my Grandma fell in love with the food! So we decided to eat there again for her birthday :)

Ranging from Chinese to Japanese to American food. From grilled seafoods, Steaks and a wide variety of Salads you can never be hungry in this place!

Calamity at our Doorstep

The past 3 days were one of the most life-changing experiences I will forever remember.  And to think that I thought I was safe from the impending danger that I thought I would never experience.

August 18, 2013, 10pm, Manila Time: Rain started to pour relentlessly as I was cuddled up in my comforter. I thought to myself, “another bad weather, huh?” as I shrugged of my gut feeling that says there was more to this rain we were experiencing.

August 19,2013, 3am, Manila Time: “Gising Denise, Baha na!” (Wake up Denise, It’s already flooded!) my Grandma’s distressed scream got me up on my feet. As I look out the window, It was flooded at knee level. We were staring at disbelief at what we were seeing. It was 3 am, I was fucking sleepy and told myself, “Wala, huhupa rin yan mamaya.” (That’s nothing, The flood will go down soon.)

August 19,2013, 7am, Manila Time: I woke up because of the noisy crowd outside our house. I got up, dressed and took an annoyed look outside my window, only to see my fellow villagers scrambling whatever food supply they could get at the village supermarket right in front of our house. For a minute there I felt vulnerable, because the water that was earlier at knee level, was already at the upper waist of a grown man. I ran down and checked to see what else was happening and luckily, while our camera still had battery, took these shots:

Garbage were floating, people were walking out and some of the teenagers were even enjoying the flood!! (EWW) You guys can probably imagine what happened next, The Black Out. Electricity was cut off. and from that point onwards, we could only hope that the weather would not get worse as it is.

 

August 19,2013, 5pm, Manila Time: It was getting dark, and with little light left, Me and my Uncle looked for every possible light source we have on hand. Flashlights, Candles, Phones, and All our rechargeable lamps. The weather wasn’t getting any better during this time, and by 6pm, we had already lighted a few candles to find our way around the house as it was already dim.

 

August 19,2013, 9pm, Manila Time: It was really dark (imagine something like being in a haunted house, with only candle lights) and by this time, we had already finished eating, and all of us were sitting in the living room listening to radio updates. It was still raining hard, and we were all worried that water would get into our home. We didn’t like what we heard when the news anchor said that this terrible weather will continue to worsen. I was cuddled up with our dog, Maya, Trying to keep warm. Despite no electricity, it felt like we were surrounded by electric fans. SPOOKY.

 

August 19,2013, 12mn, Manila Time:  I was wide awake. I was feeling cold and weak as I sit beside my window, praying that the flood would not get any higher. But the rain was disagreeing with me, It rained hard along with howling winds. I tried to sleep but I was awake the entire time. I fell asleep around 2am of August 20.

 

August 20,2013, 9am, Manila Time: I only had 7 hours of sleep, My body feels so heavy because of the cold air. As I got up, dressed up, I went down to see if there were any changes. And there were, Unfortunate changes. The flood was short of 3 more inches before it got into our home! My granddad and uncle already moved our freezers into a higher step to avoid the water. I was tense; I was moving back and forth from the kitchen to our main door to check if the water was getting into us. Believe me, I felt like this was something out of the news I used to watch. I never really thought that this, THIS calamity would hit us. To be honest, Our house is already pretty high from the actual ground/street. Its a 4 step-stair to reach out front door. SO I was really dumbfounded when I saw the rising water.

 

August 20,2013, 11:30am, Manila Time: It was still blacked-out, no electricity, and all we could do is wait for further news. The rain finally stopped, but the flood still remains. You could picture me, LITERALLY sitting in front of the radio and curled up like a crazy person. HEY, I WAS REALLY TENSE AND  SCARED!

 

August 20,2013, 7pm, Manila Time: It was raining, and the flood had subsided a bit, from waist level, it became at knee-level. By that point, I had let out a sigh of relief, because I thought water would get to us. AMEN.

 

August 20,2013, 9:30pm, Manila Time: There goes the heavy rain again along with strong wind. I didnt mind the rain, what minded me was the flood. Thankfully, The flood was getting lower, and wasn’t getting any higher. I was happy that it was already dying down.

 

August 21,2013, 10am, Manila Time:  Woke up late and first thing I did was look out the window. I could finally say that we are safe enough, as the flood was not visible any more. It was raining, but not as hard like the past 2 days. I was relieved and happy, But THERE WAS STILL NO ELECTRICITY.

 

August 21,2013, 4pm, Manila Time: I was walking around our house, when suddenly I saw one of our electric fans open (I LET OUT A SCREAM BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS A GHOST LOL) and then realized that the power was back on. YAY FOR ELECTRICITY!!! *throws confetti*

 

As soon as electricity came in, I charged everything I had! Phone, Laptop, iPod, everything! I was traumatized by not having charged enough batt for my phone and iPod. I WAS STARK BORED FOR 68 HOURS AND I SWORE THAT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME AGAIN. (at least, next time, lol)

 

The crucial areas that was hit was our province, Cavite (Particularly in Bacoor, Noveleta, Kawit and Imus) and Laguna. I could only imagine what those other areas suffered. Our house was already high in the first place, All I could think about are those other families who were swallowed in the flood.

 

I am still very very thankful that our family had not suffered too much, but I still continue to pray for all the others who suffered worse. Me and my Family’s prayers will be with them all.
