Madami ang pumupuna

Minsan nawawalan na ng tiwala

Umuusbong ang maling balita

Na wari’y sa marami ay totoo na.

Aminin man nila o hindi

Hindi naman sila bulag, pipi at bingi

Kahit sabihin nilang hindi sila apektado

Makasagap ng balitang ganito

Dagdagan pa ng mapagkunwaring magpapatotoo

Babaliktarin ang katotohanan

Ang kasinungalingan kanilang pinaniniwalaan

Ngunit magpasaganunpaman

Sa mga araw na nagdaan

Ang tiwala ko sa inyo

Kailanman mahirap tibagin

Puso at isip ko kayo lamang ang diringgin

Hindi ako, o kami magpapaapekto

Ang relasyong ito

Mas matibay pa sa bato

Mahirap tibagin at sementado

Ng tiwala, pagmamahal at pagpapakatotoo.

“THAT’S HOW IT WORKS”

​credits to mainemendoza.com blog. 

I’ve been in the industry for a year already. How time flies! (Parang 4 na buwan palang!) And in a span of a year, there are a lot of things that I have learned and figured out–both good and bad– that I didn’t know about before. After all the things that I have done and been into, I have come to realize a lot of things..

Recently I have been wondering about the current happenings around; and there is this one incident that made me question some things. (Not to mention what that incident was about) but it was something that I did not expect to happen because I did not think it was appropriate to be done. So I asked this certain someone about it, and the only thing that she said to me was “That’s how it (show business) works.” That response made me question everything; it was the kind of response I did not expect to come from someone who is very perceptive when it comes to these things–also from someone who’s very close to me. It was shocking though I did try to apprehend her perspective, but in the end I still failed to get her stance about the whole matter. Anyway, the whole thing is basically about*clears throat* pleasing people.

tell me why

I don’t really get the point of pleasing others. Seriously. If there is one thing in this world that I would never do, that would be it– pleasing people. I mean, we are in a world full of pretentious beings. Especially in my case, I am living in a world full of barbies– and no, it ain’t fantastic. Some people have really mastered the art of pretension; and it is up to us to determine what’s real and what’s not. We’ll meet and deal with different kinds of people in our lifetime and that includes the pretentious ones. Anyway, it is something that I could not and would never understand. Why bother trying to be someone you are not when you can just be yourself? Why seek for people’s approval on how to live your life? Why let other people’s opinions define you? Is that how it should work?

Some people kept on telling me that I should be this, this, this, and that I should do this, this, this, and all that but I kept on telling them NO– I don’t think I need to be all these “this” to be liked by people. I do not need and want to pretend to be someone I am not and do something I am not willing to do just to be loved and “accepted” by the people in this “barbie world”. I would never change who I am just to conform to the norms of this industry. Sure, “that’s how it works”, but I am who I am; and it’s up to people if they will like me or not.

 If there is one thing people should always remember, that’d be this:
We are not born to please everybody.
You should know that not everybody will like you for who you are and what you do and you just have to accept it. C’est la vie. Live your life the way you want and not the way others would want you to. You do not need to change who you are as a person just to be adored by others. There will always be people who will dislike you and will try to bring you down; and no matter how good of a person you are, they will always have something bad to say about you– and that’s alright, c‘est la vie.

How others see you is none of your business, at the end of the day what matters most is how you see yourself. You cannot control how others see you and think of you. I do not think there is a need for you to pretend to be someone else in front of people just so they’d say good things about you. For as long as you know that you have done nothing wrong to anyone then I don’t think there’s something for you to be worried about. Live your life the way you want to be and stop seeking for people’s approval in everything you do. Accept the reality that you cannot please everybody and we are not born to do that. Always be true to yourself and to those around you and remain that way– that would be enough. Remember that there will always be people who will love you; but it’s best to be loved for who you really are than who you are trying to be.

..that’s how it should work. :)

From AlDub to MaiChard (I Love them Both) 

Here’s my lists of the reasons for why I want to thank God for His divine intervention of AlDub/MaiChard. GOD gave me them at the same time they are for each other.

I’m listing my reasons for why I want to thank God for His divine intervention of AlDub/MaiChard. GOD gave me them at the same time they are for each other.

1. Believing in Love, Destiny and Forever – yes, AD/MC opened my feelings towards believing in love again. Who would have thought that you’ll again meet the stranger from five years ago in an unconventional way. Their love story is so magical/whimsical. They radiate, show and emanate love. They made the meaning of love to a whole new level. They may say that they are not there yet but I can feel their love towards each other. Believing in LOVE again is a milestone for me. I may be in my late 20s now, but I’m still a novice in terms of love. There’s nothing to tell a story about because there’s none really.  My only references are the stories of my parents, cousins, friends, the people surrounding me, the stories on the books that I read, the movies or the teleseries that I watch. Nothing personal experience that I could share. Believing in destiny. Hmmm! I think I have not found my destiny yet but AD/MC made me believe that it truly exist.  They may deny their destiny but not in my eyes. Many were asking, “Meron bang forever?” I always say yes not because I believe in it but because the word have been coined and there’s a meaning of it in a dictionary so, this means forever do exist. But when AD/MC happened, they changed my perspective about it. You just felt it and nothing to explain about. Love, destiny and forever has been emphasized by the AD/MC loveteam for me.

2. Life’s Lessons – this is credited to the writers, staffs and crews of Kalyeserye. I’m a fanatic of stories that emphasizes life’s lessons. Aside from the love and kilig that EatBulaga stresses, the one that hooked me or lit my interest on the AD /MC love story is the lessons learned in the plywood scene. It targeted me straight from the heart the lessons of being true and faithful to your words. Do not underestimate the word of honor because it can break you big time. There we’re many life’s lesson that I learned from their love story and I’m forever grateful about it.  

3. Family Bonding – pre- AD/MC story, I have been watching EatBulaga ever since I’ve been born. Hahaha. Yes, our family is a fan of Pinoy Henyo, Bulagaan, LMP, SuperSireyna to name a few. But our family has changed when we watched KS together. We are more open now towards each other. KS made our family bond stronger than ever. Now I believe that the family that laughs together, stays forever. Our weekend has been happier especially during lunch time because we’re watching KS.

4. Chivalry is not dead – KS always emphasizes the importance of Filipino Tradition. And one of the highlight of it is ‘Ang pag-ibig ay pinaghihirapan.’ If you’re an avid viewer of KS,  you’ll know and understand what I’m trying to say. But that’s not the only way of showing being chivalrous. Alden being genuinely gentleman towards Maine is a sign of how chivalry is not dead for him. San ba makakahanap ng isang A para sa akin. Hahaha.

5. God’s perfect timing – Alden’s story of being a showbiz personality is a perfect example of God’s perfect timing. Another one is the lovestory of AD/MC that they have crossed paths already five years ago and found each other again and made each other a better person. Through these stories, I am now a believer of how patience and timing through God’s divine intervention works. You just have to believe in it.

6. Savoring the moment – the existence of now/ presently. Enjoying the moment is one of ADMC story taught me. Living one day at a time, living the moment, enjoying the now.

7. Gratitude or grateful heart – ADMC always thanks the ADN but I think it’s  the other way around. I should be thankful for the kilig, happiness, lessons learned, and many more that they showered upon me and extended to the people that surround me.

8. Being vocal with your own feelings – mas lalo akong open expressing my feelings. I tend to keep my feelings to myself. I am sort of timid but because of the success story of Maine battling her being an introvert, if she can then I can.

9. Being a fanatic – who would have thought that in my late 20s, I’ll be obsessed with ADMC. NO one will believe even myself I’m shocked that I can do what I do now because of admiring an unexpected story of love. From reel to one at a time getting real.

10. Stay grounded despite the success or Humility – they radiate humility.  Both ADMC stay grounded despite their humongous success. Nothing to question that about them.

11. Genuine – I haven’t met them personally but they imbibe genuineness. They show what they truly feel. To Alden, being so sweet and affectionate towards the people he meets. He doesn’t need to be vocal of the good deeds he do, just base them to the stories of the people he meets that you’ll know how genuine his heart is. To Maine, she’s very captivating and what you see is what you get. She’s also genuinely true to her feelings and kebs lang to the people doubting her/them.

12. Patient /patience – I’ve watched the true to life story of  Alden in MKM and he pretty much experienced rejections, failures and trials in life. But despite those experiences, he manage to be where he is now because of him being patient. The success he has now was not just simply handed to him. He worked hard for it and now,  he’s harvesting the fruits of what he planted. With lots of patience, he went to the top.

13. Kilig – even the simplest things they do, I get so kilig and they are just the only people I’ve not yet met but I super love them. That’s a first for me ha. The way they look at each other, whenever they do their dubsmashes / banat/ jokes, when they hold hands, A being her Rogelio is soooo kilig. My meter of kilig explodes when I see them together.

15. Kung gusto maraming paraan, Kung ayaw madaming dahilan – from the word of Alden. His efforts to surprise his Maine girl is explicitly romantic and being showy of what he really feels towards her is making way to their own reality. Just enjoy the ride and no pressure MaiChard.

16. Hardworking – they have been very busy for the past months. Aside from their everyday KS, those sleepless nights of back-to-back-to-back shootings, pictorials, mall shows. They just imbibe the word hardworking. Sana lang they will be rewarded with a vacation for a rebreather so that they will not be worn out.

17. Puyat and SOCO – if AD/MC have been very hardworking,  we including me ha, also have sleepless nights. I have been team puyat, team SOCO sometimes because I don’t want to missed out updates about them. My ka-ADN would relate.

18. Quirky/ Wacky/ Jolly – ang napakagandang  babaeng malikot ang mukha from the description of Tito Sotto. To the cellphone wallpaper of Vic Sotto. I really admire their sense of humor. They are my stress reliever and my source of happiness.

19. Happiness – salamat sa kaligayahang dulot ninyong dalawa. Thank you for making my life colorful and happy.

20. Good Vibes. Many were commenting negatively. They have so many bashers. There were write -ups that degrades them or make you doubt about them but I never believed any of them because of the good vibes they illumine. My admiration about them is firmer and stronger day by day. Just continue the good vibes moment and ignore those few. Haha.

21. Blogging my thoughts – thanks Menggay that I’m more open of my thoughts now and expressing my own feelings through blogging.  I’m enjoying this kind of ride. I hope to continue this until I can.
Happy #ALDUB53rdWeeksary to all of us. This is our first Weeksary to our year two of being an AlDub/MaiChard lovers, fan, shippers whatever you call. And I’m still enjoying the ride with them. Their stronger and deeper relationship, from AlDub to MaiChard, from reel to real excites me because that’s what I’ve been praying for them. To become genuinely happy and be in love with each other.  No one can say what the future brings but cest la vie. Let’s just go with the flow, work and pray hard on it and let’s enjoy the ride called AlDub/MaiChard. They may be MaiChard now but AlDub will always hold a space in my heart. 

MY DEAR


We are both strangers

That met in unconventional way

We started to know each other

As we see in split screen day by day

I may not speak

But in my silence I’m at the peak

My actions transcend

My message you comprehend

We met five years ago

None that we know

That we will meet again

That the nation will love and trend

When we were allowed to see

But never allowed to touch

My eagerness to hold you escalated

I want to feel you inside

The long wait is over

We are bound to soar higher

We’re a force to be reckoned with

A team that is stronger than ever

Our dreams and aspirations are coming true

Being together makes us learn more and grow

Doing silly things

Just playing like  a kid

I’m at the happiest place with you.

Now that our …

Our relationship is deeper

Our connection is stronger

Our minds are parallel

Our bond is unbreakable

We are two that become one

When you lose your smile

I want to regain it

My life is incomplete

But when I’m with you

I feel like you make me whole

You make me happy and in love

We cherish each other

We treasure our memories together

You cast away all my fears

I’m yours forever MY DEAR…

So I just found out that we have 52 weeks in a year. HAHAHA!!! Fifty two weeks of roller coaster of emotions.  Fifty two weeks of celebration of love. Just a few more days and we will be celebrating a year full of happiness, learning and of course love. The greatest gift we got and still getting is LOVE. Everything happens for  a reason and the greatest surprise  comes in unexpected way and in God’s perfect time. Oh we have reached 52 weeks and the greatest lesson I learned from this phenomenon  is that God’s plan is  always the perfect  timing. Lahat ng bagay at may TAMANG PANAHON.

TAMANG PANAHON in love and life. We just  need to be patient and while  waiting for that  right timing, we must also work hard for it. Not everything is  spoon feed you know. We must chase for our dreams, make it happen and work  hard on it.
It may be the last week in celebrating a year of laughter

But it will never end and it’s only the beginning

You put a smile  in  our faces whenever we hear your achievements

You make us love you more for loving us too

You’re such an inspiration

You help  us alleviate our pains and stress from work

You shower us with good vibes

You help us work hard and strive

Now that your imagination is  turning into  reality

And everyone is hoping for that love til eternity

How you found each other is destiny

We are always here in your journey

Treasure each other

Hold on to one  another

You’re always in our prayer

Love  forever.
Happy 52 Weeks to us  ADN! AD/MC! Let’s celebrate love and life.  Your journey is our ride too. Cheers everyone. And enjoy this day!

THAT I HAVE TO LOOK INSIDE

All I see is your beautiful face

You make my heartbeat throb and race

You mezmerize me with your charm

All I want to do is wrap you around my arm

How do you find me? 

How do you know me? 

So much questions

That lead to a lot of confusions

I  never  realized before but  now

That I  have  to  look inside

That  you  are  my  wonderwall.

WHEN I SEE STARS

When I look at the skies

I see the twinkling stars

That invites me to visualize

And my imagination is always you
When I see stars in the sky

I always end up thinking of you

It’s like I’m always looking at your eyes

You captivate even my soul  and  heart
When   I  see  stars

Shining behind  those  cloudy  skies

I  imagine  seeing  your eyes

That  shine  my gloom  life.

When I see stars

I dream of us

We live eternally

We love eternally

And  that’s what I  wish  whenever  I  see  stars.

REMEMBER

Remember the day you first laid your eyes on me

That innocent eyes

That genuine reaction

Aimed straight to my heart.

 

Remember the day you held my hands

You were stuck to where you stand

But when our hands meet

There’s a current that intertwines our soul.

 

Remember the day the whole nation witnessed our union

That dance like no one is watching

That message that melts my heart

That magical moment

 

Remember the day we said our goodbyes

As if our world fell apart

I cried a river

I live but I’m not living

 

Remember when we recognized that being apart destroy us

That the string that attached us is stronger than our differences

That we can’t live without each other

That we can withstand any storm as long as we’re together.

 

I can remember all the single moments with you

Even to the days that we are at a distance

Because from there I realized

That I am willing to live hell with you

Than live peacefully but unhappy

Not everything that sparkle is a diamond

Not everything that’s valuable is expensive

Not everything that makes you happy has a price

Because the love you make me feel sparkle like a diamond

The love I am receiving from you is more valuable than those expensive things

The love you show has no price but it makes me the happiest

Even though we are now stepping a different place

Doesn’t mean that our feelings towards each other are dissimilar

The personal space we give each other

Helps our state of mind bond together

You respect and cherish my personal space

Even if not being beside you makes me miss you more

The excitement of seeing you after not being together

Makes me believe that there’s a forever.

I thank God everyday

For the unexpected meeting you

For the unplanned emotions that burst in my heart

For the opportunity to know you more

For the intertwining fate of us

And my most grateful for is…

Love, just LOVE.

 

BRIGHT

IMG_-76j84l

Even just at the four corners of your room

You lighted the whole nation

You don’t need those glitz and glamour

Being yourself is your armor

 

You’re a face that launch a thousand ship

Many can’t grasp your trip

But the unique you

Is how tons of people appreciating your value

 

You started from being timid

You started from not believing

You started from many fears

But your transformation is something to be proud of and to be delighted

 

Your journey is unconventional

Your humility and modesty is exceptional

Those wacky faces and quirky antics

Is so much love by everybody

 

Many has doubted you

Many will doubt you and

Many are still doubting you

But doing your best proved them wrong

Being grounded after the fame and fortune

Are your tools to stay strong

 

You are as bright as the star

You dazzle anywhere you are

You’re the brightest star in the constellation

You sparkle like a diamond

 

On a road where everything is dark

As you walk, you seem to spark

A bright star of this generation

A year of sweet journey and celebration

 

Who would have thought you’d reach this far?

From an ordinary gal to an extraordinary star

You bring happiness and good vibes

Thank you for being you and for being an inspiration.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MAINE MENDOZA!!!
