23rd.

Last May 06, 2013 was my 23rd birthday. It was spent over a simple dinner with my family. I wished for good health and long life for me and of course for my family and friends! Cheers to many more birthday candles to blow! :)

My Birthday Prayer:
Lord, I thank You for another year that has passed and another year blessed with Your kindness and love. Thank You for touching my life and letting me experience Your goodness everyday. The gift of love and life that I receive from You is the greatest blessing that I would always be grateful for. With all that I am, and with all that I have, I offer my everything, my life to You, my God. ♥









XOXO ♥

Bestie's birthday.

I was browsing through my past blog posts and realized I haven't blogged about my bestie's birthday last February yet, so here is my super duper late post. Better late than never right? :)


I, together with her family had lunch at Chinatown's Best Foods. The food was okay and the place was really crowded that time because it was Chinese New Year, so we did not enjoy our food that much.


My bestie and her beautiful mom. :)


I took this picture and later realized that I am included in it too. Haha. =)


Me and my beautiful bestie. :)




Her sister had an instax mini and was kind enough to give us a film. :)







After lunch, we went to Glorietta to hang out. Of course, a selfie pic. Lol!


Had our ice cream fix at DQ.



Then we went to their house to hang out some more. Haha! =)

Photo op again. :)






Saw these pictures at her room. Isn't my bestie the cutest? :)


My bestie and her elder sister, Ate Jacq. :)


Before I left, we sang her a happy birthday and she blew her cake. The cake was from me, Renz, and Josh. I forced them to buy her a cake. Haha! Hey, what's a birthday without a cake? :D




Happy happy birthday to my bestie! I wouldn't trade you for anyone in the world! :) I hope you know how blessed and thankful I am for having you in my life. I will always treasure our friendship and I hope you would not change a bit, even if you're in a relationship na. Hahaha! :P

We haven't seen each other since her birthday and I miss her sooo much! :(

This song is dedicated to you my bestie. :) I love you forever and ever! ♥



XOXO ♥

A daddy's letter to his little girl. ♥

Repost.
Dear Cutie-Pie, 
Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.” 
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior. 
And I got angry. 
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.” 
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.) 
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you. 
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be keptinterested, because he knows you are interesting: 
I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking. 
I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you. 
I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you. 
I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart. 
I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart. 
I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness. 
I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred. 
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common: 
You. 
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you. 
Your eternally interested guy, 
Daddy

How sweet is that? :) I think every father would want his daughter to read this kind of letter. :)
