My 2013

This is a bit recap of my year. I must admit that this is a ‘ME STUFF” and not something about food, travel, technology, beauty or anything above or under the hot sunshine. :)

This is an awesome year to remember. “22” is the best age according to Taylor Swift and I think she is right about it while, according to Paramore from their Hello Cold World song,

22 is like the worst idea that I have ever had
It’s too much pain, it’s too much freedom
What should I do with this?
it’s not the way you plan it
It’s how you make it happen

Well, both idea were right, I have experienced both and I just had lots of fun, pressure and knowledge to keep. It makes me feel more human and I realized that every second of the day is important because I am getting old and I might lose my aces and regret it for not doing anything. I must spend it wisely and even if it is difficult to do, I must survive! Even if it is tiring, at the end of the day it will be all full worth to do.

One thing is for sure about me now and for the succeeding years:  “I WILL NEVER LOSE ANY PARTICULAR CHANCE IN MY LIFE. I WILL AVOID TO SAY NO TO GOOD TIMES AND QUALITY TIMES. I WILL DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE A LIVING AND FOR MY FUTURE

ON THE OTHER HAND, here are some photos of my adventures this year:

I am really thankful for this year. Grateful to do so many things. had lots of fun with my family and friends. Spend quality time with those people I love most. 2013 is a year of experience for me. Looking forward to more adventures in 2014. It is a new beginning too! I am gonna be tougher than I am now.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

I hope you all had a good year in 2013 too and like I wish, may 2014 be nice to all of us. We cannot avoid bumps on the road but you must learn how to drive: speed up, slow down and stop.

Love,

3rd anniversary of being us

Happy New Year everyone!! :-)

Today, Me and Ejay celebrated our third anniversary. It is a simple lunch date and happy thoughts to share. We just made this day a little extraordinary.

Since, its new year, everyone is celebrating with us and it is fun! I love the thought that we are on the third year and going strong! We love each other and we will never forget that we love each other especially when we are arguing.

We ate at Tokyo Tokyo and go home after buying some cellphone stuffs. By the way, he bought me chocolates Malteseers, and macchiatto frappe! i loved it!! :-) We are genuinely happy and thankful for this day and to more more years being with him.

To Ejay,

I am grateful to have someone like you because you are a strong and wise person. You never let me down and you understand the totality of me. I may argue with you with all the little things that merely tore our relationship but you never gave up on me. I am happy to see our lives together. Cheers to forever. Cheers for more years. I may not be a good girl but I am trying for you because you are one of the reasons why I am sane. You keep my direction, you keep me strong, you gave color to my life, you have changed me. I may not always with you but in my heart I always wish that I could spend the rest of the day with you. Remember, I am whole heartedly in love with you because I fell in love with the thought that you respect and know me more than anyone else. I could not find anyone who will just love who I am and not what I should be. Thank you dear. Thank you.

I love you to the moon and back.

Always,
Your dearest Anna

Continental and Archaeological Culture in the Philippines

In every community there are some culture that you may like or not. Some people like it because they get used to it but the others did not because they know they are not like them or it is not the culture that he/she was born.

In a third world country (developing country/ Philippines), In an ordinary community, that middle families belongs. Gossips or rumors always came up. Sad but it is true. Hearing bad and rude words from people to people; accusing each other’s mistakes while they do the same. Immorality sometimes takes place and community issues are just as usual as it is.

A matter of culture.

Seeing bystanders along the streets while doing their own businesses like, gossiping and backstabbing each other’s backs, looking for louse while seated in a staircase, drinking liquors at night hearing funny and really idealist and intriguing thoughts of a drunk person or maybe hearing a loud noise from a fight of these drunk people, eating deliciously cooked street foods and listening for a latest gossip in town. A culture that you can see in the Philippines. It is way too happy and too humorous to just sit in one corner and observing the culture. Sometimes, the feeling of being outcast in one culture is a way of determining or classifying one culture to another.

A Filipino

The culture of Filipino people are a loving culture and it could adapt to any situation and could recover to any disaster. Filipinos have a spirit that never dies, when get hurt and rollover the hill, Filipinos will again stand-up and walk again. Filipinos sometimes cry and get hurt but they surely smile many times than to frown and get mad.

Foolish smiles in Filipino politics

The reason politicians fool Filipinos, they deceive and those Filipinos who trust have a hope to hang on to and say, “Maybe, he is the person we need.” and then it will end up, “I wish I never voted him/her”.

Oh well, on 2013, election season and politicians were busy digging up roads and dikes to gain more funds. I wish Filipinos will choose a better political leader who sometimes do partly honest and corrupt things than those who were eaten by greed.

Because, it becomes a trend and it becomes a usual thing and Maybe it becomes a strong CULTURE that can hardly to bend; but when a person decided to change the world and everyone do the same, it will surely change the CULTURE.
