The Nutcracker production - Philippine Ballet Theatre

First time seeing a ballet performance. Needless to say, it was magical! So much beauty and emotion expressed through human movement. My favorite parts were the dancing snow fairies and each solo parts.

Setting aside the rumors behind CCP, it is truly beautiful at dusk. I am completely in awe of its architecture and the sculptures placed around it.

Forgiveness is a gift

This year has been a mad roller-coaster of emotions. I tried out a lot of things, quite a few didn't work out and I learned a heck of a lot! The kind of things I will never do again because of all the juju it took out of me. Surprisingly though, I feel better. Did I just survive this year of epic fail-ness? Yes I did!


Self love. I learned that there is no other love more giving and fulfilling than loving yourself. The love I hoped to find elsewhere is within me all this time. I am whom I seek.

Roads to take. What will I be? I am as confused as ever. I am still working on it. I recognize time is ticking so I need to work twice as hard. I know who I want to be and that's what I will keep on aiming for.

Reality. Dreaming is good but reality is better. Let your mind soar but don't let it sit in the clouds too long. Start small and believe in the beauty of your dreams.


Before I enter the new year I want to focus on forgiveness and making amends for all the wrong choices I made. For all the times I let myself fracture and break into pieces. Forgiveness after all is a gift you give your self.

Life recently 39

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. This was September and October. Sacrifices had to be made. I have professional and career goals after all. Still it does feel like time wasted because I have nothing to show for except that I lived, breathed, and worked.

Anyway, glad that was over.

Hello November! (。◕‿‿◕。)ノシ ♫♬♪ ☆彡It really feels like spring after a long bout of winter. Finally some sunshine and color for my soul. I may have overcompensated a bit 'cause now most of my days are fully booked.

1. Hoarding of books is a given. I am currently in the middle of a lot of books thus this book remains half read. I am trying to catch up but slow reader is slow! ヾ(〃 ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄▽ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄〃)ノ

2. Is moderately obsessed with Glaiza De Castro's new album. I meant to gift myself one this Christmas. Meanwhile here are samples: Barcelona, Country Tree, Dusk till Dawn. ♫♬♪♫♬♪

I am still kicking myself for missing the QC Film Festival. Where can I watch Sleepless?
