Our Pet Dogs Will Live Forever In My Heart

I would always write about something good or happy but this time it is different. I hope you brace yourself for this write-up. Forgive me for doing this.

It has been three weeks since our pet shih tzu Marley passed away.  She was 7 years old. About 2 weeks before that her mom Mandy passed away. She’s turning 9 this month. They both had cancer.

My life spent at home with them were the most fun and loving years. I can feel my tears as I’m writing this right now, you know. It breaks my heart every time I think about them. I miss them so much.

I heard it once. People say the things that bring you joy are the same things that bring you sadness. This is it.

I can only watch it in movies. Their pet dogs die and I cry like a river. I couldn’t imagine it happening to me or our family. Mandy and Marley have become our family. They have become our source of joy. I miss spending minutes turned to hours just playing and cuddling with them. More than an owner and pet relationship, I felt like an older sister to both of them. They were our babies.
This house has never been so quiet with them around. It has become their playground.  This has become their world including the people that live in it, our family.


Dreams Can Come True

I am not in competition with anyone. I only compete with myself so I can get better. I'd like to improve each time. I say this to myself.

I'd like to inspire people in what I do. Did you know I'm not a popular kid in school? I did not have the highest grades while in school. I just have passing grades then.

I nearly failed one of my subjects in high school though I study hard. You know how it is. Studying in one of the top exclusive all-girls school here in Philippines can be tough. Yet I graduated without repeating a year or any subjects. Maybe I'm just determined to study and blessed to be able to graduate in my school.

I tell you, you can be who you dream to be. You may not be the smartest person in class but what you strive for your future should tell you where you will be.

I used to work in sales real estate as my first job. This was like 8 years ago. My manager asked the team to present in front of everyone our personal goals and dreams (materially). My teammates shared they like to buy their own car, house, etc.


An Overnight Vacation in Subic Freeport Zone

Before I say something here, I just realized that I have been using the wrong URL in posting photos here in the blog. I apologize for the wrong info but it was just for proper tagging those who might steal my photos here. A lot of photos are mine and I personally took it. A credit to the blog is or should be to my credit ofcourse.

This is a late post since this travel happened December of last year where the family spent one night and two days in Subic Freeport Zone. Going around Subic won't be complete without visiting the outlet and surplus shops there. It is where my dad would never get tired looking for items to buy - some shoes, shirts or bags. He loves to shop more than anyone else in the family. It's so funny he would shop more than my mom, you know.


Good Food and Ambiance in Patio Vera, Marikina

Chicharon Sisig in Patio Vera, Marikina
Who doesn't enjoy eating sisig? This special Chicharon sisig, in Patio Vera for me, is best of its kind.

If you're in for some good food and different ambiance, then this place we visited for simple Anniversary and Birthday dinner could be perfect for you. This restaurant has long been an old house. Everything in it were preserved from tables and chairs to the decorations.

It gives you that feeling of going to a restaurant outside the metro. You can find this in Calumpang, Marikina. Parking is a little hassle because when the place gets crowded you will need to avail of the valet services. You will need help to park your car elsewhere so you won't have to park along the driveway.

UP Lantern Parade and Concert at the UP Diliman Sunken Garden

UP Lantern Parade Concert in UP Sunken Garden

This year our food booth was once again part of UP Lantern Parade event. It has been like this for the past three years. We're blessed to be part of this once a year event of the school. It happened last night.

It has been a tradition of UP to be showcasing bands in these events. Why not join the fun right? I know I'm not one of the college people anymore but I can blend in anyway. LOL

The bands started playing at nine o'clock in the evening. We are still having our snacks over the food booths at this time. Some of the bands we were able to catch were Mayonnaise and Silent Sanctuary. The latter is a favorite of the family a reason we had to come near the stage. 

The organizers of the event had a list of local bands performing until break of day. Surely those who stayed until the end of the program had so much fun. I remember my college days where I used to be part of the organizing committee doing coordination. But it was different because we didn't have an event this big. We handle events mostly for the whole college community only but not outsiders.
