Robin Williams : 1951-2014

I woke up this morning reading the news that one of the artist that I admire passed away.

I don't usually go drama over a celebrity who passed away. Today is different, my heart is one of those mourning for a great artist who made my childhood memorable.

Genie, we sang your song (Friend Like Me) with so much glee when my cousins, brother and sisters were growing up. It was a favorite before A Whole New World. You were indeed everyone's friend.

Mr. John Keating. The first person who taught me to 'carpe diem'.. to seize the day. To stand on a desk in order for me to see things differently.

Dr. Patch Adams. Indeed you taught us that...Laughter is the best medicine.

Peter Pan. You grew up but still there was that child in you. And I loved you for that. Tinkerbell and Wendy will be missing you a lot.

To all the characters you portrayed, inspiration and laughter is what you brought us.

You are now free, Genie in the lamp. You have seized the day with what God blessed you with and you cured our sadness with laughter. Those who admired and loved you will see you again in.. Neverland.

May you rest in peace.

A chat with self


Alter-Ego: I just need that 20 seconds to tell him, He did his part. I think I should do mine.
Maanne: And Imagine what will happen after…. *shakes head* I suggest, just keep quiet.
Alter-Ego: What if someone gets to him first?
Maanne: Face it. He lives a thousand miles, it will take long for you to get together. when that time comes when you’re ready to fly and meet him again, everything’s too late. 
Alter-Ego: I miss him.
Maanne: Does he miss you? no. End of conversation.
Alter-Ego: He did his part. He confessed how he feels. You were there! You heard him! You saw his eyes!
Maanne: Yes I was and I saw and heard….but how sure are you?look… do you still see him online on skype? no. does he send you a message now? no. does he still call or tells you that he will call? no. So stop it. Let’s move on. Let’s not get hurt again.
Alter-Ego: *sighs and holds back tears…hugging the pillow*
Maanne: *sighs and holds back tears but goes on with her errands and workout* …cmon.. let’s chill!

This conversation actually happened.

The Cool Girl


‎”Yeah..
I will always be that cool girl..
the girl who will always be every guy’s 
best bud…
but never a guy’s special one.”

This is me. I’ve always known it. :) I’m used to it. I’m happy for my friends who is a guy’s special one. 
Why? Because they deserve it. They deserve to be special to someone. Not only because they are beautiful on the outside, they also have a beautiful soul. 
As for me. I don’t know,… because I will always be the girl who my guy friends will run to for a bottle of beer, a shot of tequila, a shoulder their arms can rest to, someone who they can call on the phone or on Skype because they’re bored. Someone who they call the cool one. 
That’s me. The cool girl.

Travel 101: Caramoan


Very little is known about Caramoan. Isolated from the rest of Camarines Sur, it is no surprise why Philippine's Secret Paradise remains unexploited from commercial tourism.
Caramoan gives 'island hopping' a new meaning. Enjoy its beauty in many ways. Great ocean adventures for kayakers, snorkle and scuba dive to experience the diverse marine life, trek and search for the enigmatic lagoon, rock climb the limestone cliffs, explore the caves or just star gaze at night.

Playlist #6: Blessings


This is my personal song by Laura Story :) 


We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we have faith to believe

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You're near
And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home
It's not our home

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
And what if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You're near
What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise

An Open Letter to Fred Weasley

I was lurking through my twitter one night and found "Letters to Fred". I read and found myself teary-eyed. Fred is sorely missed. It was actually the saddest twitter account.

I wrote my own letter as Fred Weasley was one of my favorite HP characters. He was awesome!

Dear Fred,

Everyone misses you. George was never the same according to Ginny, Hermione and Ron. Harry blames himself but we all know especially you that it was never his fault. The once noise Burrow lacks the laughter that we all grew up with.

You are sorely missed.

I'm not part of the family but I'm one of the millions who witnessed your jokes, smiles, love for the family and sadly your death. The moment the spell hit you, I froze and the last thing on my mind when as I left the place was seeing you cold on the floor with Ron screaming your name.

Thank you for the laughter and the The Weasley Wizard Wheezes. It was and I know will always be the happiest place for the magical and non-magical children.

Everyone is asking for you to come back..... If Only. I hope to meet you soon Fred and yeah... The Marauders :D.

You are badass! ;) Have fun in heaven!

Mischief Managed.
