It Is Just A Piece of Paper

maam

Last night, I can’t sleep. I am struggling to focus at work. Thinking about my plans, my future, and everything.

I prayed to God and asked him to give me a sign until tomorrow. Well, I’m not that type of person who believes in “signs”. Somehow, it helps. So today, I started to work and packed my things. And then I suddenly saw on that corner where I put my bible. And when I opened it, I saw this note (knowing that I received this note from my English teacher four (4) years ago). And now, it motivates me —- a lot.

It says, “Use your knowledge well. I believe you can achieve your ambitions. Trust in yourself.” – Ms. April Apple Despi.

I should have believed myself at first and having that confidence to keep moving forward in life. Facing your fears and difficulties in life is just a challenge for yourself.

Sometimes you cannot understand life, it’s so unfair and have so much struggles. The only thing you can do is to pray and believe that God is bigger than your problems. He will not leave you but giving you life experiences, life struggles, and life lessons. And that’s how you understand what life really is.

It may be just a piece of paper, you will never know it will do something good years later.


Have a nice day people! 🌹

Dear Other Self

Dear Other self,

Today, I have confessions to make!

I grew up with full of love and a happy family. But it turns out to be the worst and a living nightmare. Something bad has happened which is the main and only reason why we suffered a lot – my Mom died. I have never wished this to be happened but life was so unfair and giving me this kind of living.

Year 2011 -2015: What is life without your Mom? Very Hard! I cannot bear the pain I have for this past few years and even until now. It is like I am carrying a torch without the burning desires in life. My life was so down. I feel depressed and devastated on that time. Having no confidence in everything I do and my plans in life.

These are the years that I don’t want to remember but part of my life experiences. My dad was so abusive both physically and emotionally. I have never heard him encouraging me in life but dragging me down and makes my heart so broken. I never thought that he has no dreams for us. And sometimes he questioned himself in front of us saying “I sacrificed a lot for you!” “I wished that you have never came out in m life!” He never supported me in my studies – sometimes but not that much to feed my daily needs. And I understand that! I understand our situation. But still I still managed to pass the Entrance examination and finished one year only – not able to continue my studies due to lack of support financially and morally.

Year 2016 -2017: I don’t have a choice but to choose to give up studies. I worked at a young age and facing the reality that life is so freaking hard. I know what exactly the life is. Sweats and blood before money. But I am not that persevere to work hard. I worked different jobs and not able to stay longer. I don’t know what to do? Why is this happening? Why me of all people?

Mid-year 2017: I met new friends and help me to rise up from the ashes. I admit that we have that kind of strong connections and bond. I owe them a lot.

I met people with different stories and it makes me realize that it wasn’t only me who had experienced this kind of life. It motivates me so much. I have no permanent address to live. I stayed one month in my  best friend’s house and help her doing the household chores. After that, I stayed with my cousin but still I couldn’t find a job. So, I decided to leave and left a note saying “I’m living”. It was a hard decision for me but i don’t have guts to stay longer with him, knowing that I cannot help him paying bills  because I don’t have a job.

I became a Kitchen Clerk for five (5) months and leave it. My anxiety attacks me and I couldn’t help it but cry. Lowering down my self-esteem, my confidence went down, and don’t know what to do. Same feeling that I have felt before – depressions. So, I decided to go home and relax for 1 month and half.

Year 2018:  This was my rising point in my life. I became a Content Writer which I suited the most since I really love to write. I started to write when I was a kid. Until when I get older, I used to write poems, essays, stories, script, and other forms of writing. I worked different companies to write them. And published online. I have never imagined this to be happened. It was the nicest feeling that seeing your articles that has published online.

Year 2019: Still working as a Content Writer. I can do everything I want, eating the food I like and so many things. I believed that there are a lot of opportunities to come in my life. I always grateful to God for giving me these life experiences, life lessons, life struggles, and other life-related. I may not have this without him and to the people who supported me morally (and financially). I owe you. I have my To-Do-List and now I’m working on my plans in life and praying that it will work accordingly.

Sometimes I think about my life and future, what is really my purpose in life? So much interesting in life. Just keep doing it until you find it. Well, every successful starts from the bottom.  This will be the part of one of my achievements in life. And I am still rooting and hoping for the best to come.

Think big. Dream big. Believe. Stay Positive.

 

Sincerely, 

Your other self.

HELL’S ITCH / FIRE ANT ITCH

 

Image result for hell's itch
(ctto) PHOTO IS NOT MINE.

MUST READ: “HELL’S ITCH! / DEVIL’S ITCH / FIRE ANT ITCH” 😈

First of 2019, I thought I would publish something that is very interesting and fun but it turns different.

I just want to share this to you guys. This is a serious thing. And it really sucks and it kills me every time it hits me, I SWEAR! NOBODY UNDERSTANDS HOW I FEEL. It’s like a thousand of ants are biting both my arms and shoulders. ALL I WANTED IS TO ESCAPE FROM THE PAIN AND THIS ITCH. And I wanted to cry. Promise!

Okay? Here it goes, last Saturday we went to Olango Island, Lapu Lapu City, Cebu Philippines –  for chilling, enjoying the beach, and feel the heat of the sun. When we got there, it took hours before we start swimming. I really cannot believe that it is really happening right now, I though this plan is not going through but here we are, keep enjoying. I took my shirt off and enjoying the heat of the sun, I always love to do it. I don’t care about the sunburns since I’ve been experiencing sunburn before. And I confident about it.

Keep swimming, keep talking, and keep enjoying at the same time. 

We took our lunch and take a break. Although, I can feel the sunburn in my skin especially on my shoulders, arms, and at the back. I keep ignoring it. Around 3pm, we decided to go home since it is too hot to swim and we are very tired also. So, when we got home I took a shower and doing some household chores and then rest.

On Sunday, I can really feel the pain of the burns but this is usually happens for everyone. And I liked it!  It was my plan actually to get sunburn. NOW, I DID NOT EXPECT THAT THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING TO ME RIGHT NOW! I though it was the surroundings or in my room that makes me itch. So, I clean my room, washing the plates, put some alcohol on the floor, changing the bedsheet BUT IT WAS NOT. I started scratching it and I am not comfortable with it. So, I took a bath. But, nothing is changed. I keep spraying (insect killer) both the corners in my room for I thought it was the reason BUT IT WAS NOT! I started to cry. I don’t know what to do. I am doing crazy things to ease the pain and itch BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. And IT MAKES ME CRAZY! Have you experiencing this? My God! I can’t explain very well. 

I suddenly think about the beach we went or the sunburn. So, I research it on Google! And here I found, THIS IS A RARE CASE, especially to those people with sunburn may also experience an extreme, deep, painful itching called hell’s itch. Also known as devil’s itch or fire ant itch, some people describe it as an unrelenting itch that can keep them awake at night and persist for days while the skin heals.” 

This is my FIRST TIME! OF ALL THE EXPERIENCES IN SUNBURN BEFORE, THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FIRST TIME!

So, I went to Pharmacy, and buy the antihistamine (medicine) or any that could help me to relief this pain and itch. BUT SAD TO SAY, they won’t allow me to buy a Benadryl unless if it recommends or prescribed by the doctor. So, I take Ibuprofen and Allerta. And I keep drinking water. I keep scrubbing it using aloe Vera.

OMG! THIS IS NOW MY 2ND DAY OF WORST FEELING EVER! AND I PROMISE AFTER THIS CIRCUMSTAMCES, I WILL NOT EVER GO TO BEACH AND GET SUNBURNS. IT KILLS ME. I KEEP PRAYING THAT THIS WON’T TAKE LONG AND HOPING THAT THIS WOULD BE GONE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

✔️ PS. Hey guys! I am living you some link/videos for you able to read/see and to understand how I felt and for you able to prevent it.

The Best Couple On-Screen Ever!

What is your favorite Asian drama series?

I don’t know if you have watched this Taiwanese Drama Series entitled “It started with a kiss”,  it was aired last September 2005 (I was too young on that time). It was a huge success, together with its sequel “They Kiss Again”  both locally and internationally, pinning it as the truest and one of the most successful adaptations of the manga “Itazura na kiss” written by Kaoru Tada.

It was one of the most epic Taiwanese dramas ever made and also one of the most popular Taiwanese dramas to be successful internationally.

It was 2012 if I wasn’t mistaken, when my older cousin told me about this series. She was 7 years older than me, so I don’t have any idea about this. And the moment she talked, she was blushing all the time. It’s like I really want to watch it, too. I know that it is so weird that boys are watching this kind of series, it’s like not suited to watch it for men. Why would I try to watch other genre like horror and action movies? I just keep ignoring what they have told me. So I decided to buy a CD-Tape both “It Started with a kiss” and the “They kiss again”.

WOAAH! I fell in love with these series. It was year 2012 that I first fell in love, not any other girls but the characters of the series I’m watching. I think I watched it more than 5 times. Then, that was the time that my Mom broke the CD tape and threw it away.

And now 2018, I accidentally saw it on the YouTube, I mean the series but the theme songs (knowing that there’s no photo or any video but the lyrics). I was mesmerizing for the whole while I’m listening to the song. Why is it so familiar to me? I just keep thinking all over again. So I decided to go and read the comment section. So, here it is. MY FIRST LOVE. It’s flashing all the memories when I first have watched this Taiwanese Series. So I decided to watch it again.

IT STARTED WITH A KISS

ISWAK

Yuan Xiang Qin (Ariel Lin)  is a bumbling, intellectually challenged, naïve, but optimistic high school girl. Ever since she met Jiang Zhi Shu (Joe Cheng) at the freshman orientation, she’s been in love with the genius with an IQ of 200. After two years of having a crush on him, she finally musters the courage to confess her love to him at school with a love letter. Zhi Shu is not impressed, and Xiang Qin is left humiliated publicly in front of their entire school.

That afternoon, the new house she has just moved into with her father collapsed in a minor earthquake. She and her father are instantly left homeless because they lacked the foresight to pay for earthquake insurance. Fortunately, her father’s old college friend extends a helping hand and invites both of them to live at his house. Little does Xiang Qin know that the kind Uncle Li is actually the father of Jiang Zhi Shu.

Because of this unexpected turn of events, Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin begin living their lives under the same roof. Zhi Shu’s mother aspires to bring them together, coaxing Zhi Shu into tutoring Xiang Qin and taking numerous pictures of the couple together. Zhi Shu remains cold towards Xiang Qin, thinking her to be one of the dumbest people he has ever met, and refuses to speak to her at school. Through the course of the series, Zhi Shu slowly warms up to Xiang Qin, who tries her hardest to do better in school for him, as they deal with romantic rivals, their futures, and their relationship.


THEY KISS AGAIN

ISWAK2

It Started with a Kiss ended with odd couple Zhi Shu (Joe Cheng) and Xiang Qin (Ariel Lin) getting married in characteristically comical fashion, and the sequel picks up the story with their honeymoon and married life. Xiang Qin is as ham-fisted as ever, creating many funny situations as she learns the ropes of being a wife and tries hard to become a good nurse and work alongside her genius husband. Aspiring doctor Zhi Shu meets some obstacles at school when he encounters both academic and romantic rivals who are determined to over-rule him.

As Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin struggle with their professional ambitions, they also struggle with their personal relationship. Many times, Zhi Shu’s coldness and harshness drives Xiang Qin to tears and she tries to run away. Zhi Shu learns to understand and deal with his jealousy when Xiang Qin’s nursing fellow student Yang Qi Tai (Figaro Ceng) becomes too close. He also tries to push Xiang Qin to higher ambition and independence. Zhi Shu soon learns to love Xiang Qin and forgive her bumbling ways, and Xiang Qin tries harder to become a better wife and nurse to her husband.

Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin are not the only ones having problems with their relationship. Xiang Qin’s childhood friend Ah Jin (Jiro Wang) deals with the unwelcome affections of Christine (Larisa Bakurova), an English exchange student who latches onto him against his will. Xiang Qin’s friend, Chun Mei (Petty Yang), gets pregnant by her boyfriend, Ah Bu (Aaron Yan), but his wealthy, highbrow mother is desperate to keep them apart. Zhi Shu’s younger brother Yu Shu (Zhang Bo Han) deals with his own first love and their story remarkably resembles that of Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin.


WE ARE STILL HOPING FOR THE PART THREE! 

I’ve watched all the versions, it seems like I couldn’t stand the lack of passion and awful acting. But this Taiwanese version, DAMN! that’s what I’m talking about – the love, the chemistry. So natural. I remember the first time I fell in love with someone.

I’ve seen this drama about 20 times and I love it more every time I see it. Made me remember how awesome this drama was. And the time goes by, this will remains remarkable and unbeatable – the one who stood out of all the versions of the Japanese Manga Series “Itazura na Kiss”.

I was so sad because they ended up nothing but a good friend. Ariel Lin was married to a Chinese Businessman. I am so happy that she found her love of her life. I read some articles before that Ariel Lin refused the offer because she’s already married, some fans speculated it. While Joe Cheng, is happily single and busy with his career. The last time I saw them together was  “RACE THE WORLD“, it is a variety show where the cast members are paired up to complete missions at popular places. 

WE, THE FANS, ARE STILL HOPING FOR THE PART THREE. I HOPE YOU GUYS ARE READING THIS. PLEASE MAKE OUR DREAMS DO COME TRUE!

Social Medias

 

 

social media

Social Medias. Are they stealing our lives?

I was always occupied with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And I find that I love it!

There’s nothing wrong of having this social medias as long as you know your limits. You must prioritize those thing that needed to be prior – your school home-works, household chores, studying your lessons, and other important things. You have must that kind of attitude, a time-management also. You don’t know exactly the meaning of life if you don’t bring your gadgets down. That’s  the fact!

World is running time to time. Do not let yourself left behind and knows nothing. The secret of having a successful life is your being passionate about, driven, and your dedication, indeed. Open your mind wider and allow yourself to be more proactive.

According to someone whom I used to love before that,”We must be masters of ourselves. We must lead ourselves. Let us be proactive.”

Finding Who You Really Are

What do you do in life? How did you spend your day? What is your ambition? What would you want to be in the future? Is that really your passion?

I am Vince. I wasn’t able to finish my studies because of some financial problem that I have encountered. I am the eldest. It has always been my dream to finish my studies and to become what I really wanted to be in the future. I worked at the early age. I became a sales clerk, a kitchen helper at the Hotel, a kitchen crew at fast-food chain. I also became a Content Writer and worked home-based and paid via PayPal. I spend my whole-life with work, friends, and other things. I may not have the higher degree to show people what best is in me. Atleast I’m trying to do something’s worth in life. Maybe, it is not the right for me to shine. And I really do believe that every stars in the universe has the perfect time to shine brighter. And that what makes me keep stepping forward and learn something new in life that proves that the poverty is not a deterrent in pursuing one’s dreams.

W R I T I N G – is one of the things I loved the most. And most of the time I would love to express my emotions through writing poems, inspirational & motivational messages, stories, etc.

Finding yourself who really you are? We all have the identity crisis issues. But this is not a deterrent of pursuing your goals in life. I do believe that the time has passing by, you may able to know and discover yourself – specifically your passion with.

The best feeling in the world is you are able to know what you really like and wanted to be or what really your passion is. As of now, this may not be called as my passion (writing)  but I’m happy. I am able to do such things that makes me happy and I think it’s all that matters.

So, how about  yours?

What is your memorable moment?

Maria Christina
Maria Christina Falls, Iligan City, Philippines

The most memorable moment that happened in my life is when I saw it personally how Maria Christina Falls really looks like. I remember that time when I was in Elementary I was just looking at the pictures and amazed how beautiful Maria Christina Falls is and wishing that I’m going to see it personally.

This photo took last 2016 together with someone I used to love before. That’s sad and that is life. Just continue moving forward. I was studying at Mindanao State University – Main Campus, Marawi City on that time when we decided to go at Maria Christina Falls in Iligan City. Since it took more or less three (3) hours to reach Maria Christina Falls.

I was so excited on that time. This is it! This is really happening! I am not exaggerating but I cried on that time, a tears of joy. I really cannot believe it. It was my first time to go to Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan City Philippines (19th day of March 2016). I was there to visit and I was so amazed because it is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen in my life. It is very refreshing in the mind and also for relaxation, for adventures too. Even though I am so busy in my exams, I can still manage time for having some fun. Be sure that you have your camera. I am pretty sure that you always take a picture every seconds. You won’t regret it.

Botanical and Zoological Gardens

But before you reach Maria Christina Falls, you must pay the entrance fee P25 pesos if I was not mistaken. And that includes the free shuttle bus ride. In your first drop, you will have the time to visit their “Botanical and Zoological Gardens”. all you have to do is to explore how wonderful it is. It looks refreshing because all you have to see is the plants and the trees. But wait? There’s more, you will see the different kind of animals – crocodiles, ostrich, monkeys, family of birds, and so many others. All you have to do is take a photo every places you’re passing by. And if you’re already done exploring, you may now go back to the area where the shuttle bus fetch you. And that will be the time to go Maria Christina Falls, finally.

Falls

And now, this his how beautifully Maria Christina Falls look like. I was mesmerizing all the places I’ve seen for the whole time. But this time, I don’t have any bad experience. And one of the moments I treasured the most.

In Philippines, there are many beautiful places you will go such as Boracay in Aklan, Puerto Prinsesa Underground River in Palawan, Chocolate Hills in Bohol and so many other places. In addition, Philippines, which is my country, is the most visited places in world wide

Nevertheless, price is what we pay, value is what we get. Traveling, it is not just about spending money but it gives you so much relaxing and you are able to see how beautiful the world is.

So, how bout you? what is your memorable moments in your life?
