Three Quarters of Doom . . .

This year has been the most difficult because life had been throwing stones at me. Everyday is like Doom’s Day. I am actually surprised that my sanity is intact despite all these.

People tell me that this is my karma for trolling. I, however, don’t think of it that way. Karma happens in another life. Hey, I’m far from dead!

The way I see it: my Yin-Yang was acting up… or maybe some psychotic paranormal being or a retard with super powers became bored and toyed with me.

Who knows?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

“In order to preserve your self-respect, it is sometimes necessary to lie and cheat.” --- Robert Byrne

Cheating — may it be on exams, dieting, lovelife, career, etc — is always wrong in a number of levels and it has become my main regret. I am just so glad that I was able to stop my cravings before it was too late.

The Levels of Cheating . . .

“In order to preserve your self-respect, it is sometimes necessary to lie and cheat.” --- Robert Byrne

I admit that I cheated and I have learned from it. I am also thankful that Dada was there to support me despite my weak resolve. He explained to me that the gravity of cheating varies — so does the punishment. I couldn’t describe it more so I just thought of putting our conversation about it. (not the exact words but the gist is the same)

Dragon Flags

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!!! 

Dada and I welcomed the Year of the Water Dragon by attending the CHInoy HAO BANG in San Miguel By the Bay – SM Mall Of Asia.  Dada is partly Chinese. I have no Chinese blood running through my veins. What I wanted to do was celebrate the results of my diet pact – my cheongsam finally fits!!! LoL! Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge : Opportunity

“There is a time for risky love. There is a time for extravagant gestures. There is a time to pour out your affections on the one you love. When the time comes -- seize it, don't miss it!” - Max Lucado

CARPE DIEM!!! Opportunities are seldom seen so it’s best that we seize them the moment they present themselves — whether in a form of a gift or a challenge.

[Gift] Love stories are often cheesy but they’re always passionate and honest. I met my boyfriend through an online game. It may be shallow to some, but I am proud to say that I love him even before we met IRL. I do not regret meeting up with him when the opportunity arose either. We’ve been together for almost eight years now. Our houses are too far from one another so our dates are always planned ahead of time. Not a moment is wasted whenever we go out. We only meet up once a week so we see to it that these rare opportunities are always treated as special.

[Challenge] My work has been stressful from day one up to now. The tasks may look the same but I handle them differently, individually — every single day. On top of that, I frequently cross paths with the people I loathe. It mostly drains my energy and my colleagues would even tell me how awful I look when I am stressed out.  Still, I wouldn’t put up with the hardships if I do not love my job. Aside from the good pay, I also love the recognition from my bosses. All those tiring moments disappear when they tell me that they need me. “I know there is a lot of pressure and I understand that but I won’t depend on you if I don’t see your potential. You have been doing an excellent job.” (These are the exact words from my boss’s email. Tee-hee!)


Photo Info:
I am unsure what kind of jellyfish this is but it’s so pretty, swimming around in a tank. This is one of the highlights of Manila Ocean Park [link]. Notice that its head formed a heart shape from this angle. It was really difficult and it took me several shots before I got it right! This is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge [link].

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils. ~Louis Hector Berlioz

This watch is a gift from my boyfriend and it has been with me since September 2010. I do not know when and how the glass cover was broken. Dada has had it cleaned once. This time around, I am unsure if the glass can still be repaired. I’m keeping it in my memento mini-shrine at the moment.
