76

Two hearts that beat as one

Even if we’re two worlds apart

There’s something that is missing

And it’s you who fills the emptiness 
I chose to be happy

And I choose you

Now I’m happy and contented

With you by my side
This would be my most sabaw post but never will I forget the day that made me happy and believe in forever even though that forever is not for me, I know it exists for A&M. Oh my it’s 76 weeks now and we’re still hanging in there. We’re not making promises here on how far this journey can reach but as long as I can still feel the fire and spark in my heart then, I will continue supporting. No one can tarnish my support and love coz that’s how strong my fate in this team is. 

Happy celebration of the #ALDUB76thWeeksary let’s make the remaining days of 2016 worthwhile and meaningful. Stop the hate now and support and be happy with what you love. Let’s welcome 2017 with a happy and peaceful heart, team kampante and prayerful for the benefit of others. Let’s not forget to spread love and show kindness to all the we meet.

It’s Christmas day! Merry Christmas everyone! Happy birthday Papa Jesus. Thank you God for bringing Jesus Christ in our lives. Spend this day with the people you love like your family and friends!

CURRENTLY 

Reading
The Christmas greetings from families and friends plus some twitter updates of mi loves. (you already who they are)

Writing
aside from my 19th edition of the Sunday Currently, I hope I could finish the ones in my draft. Lately, I was so lazy witing or my mojo feels is somewhat lost over these past few days. My previously published posts were somewhat shallow. I hope I can recuperate from it. (hahaha like a disease)

Listening

I’m into Bruno Mars nowadays. I just love his voice. But the Versace on the Floor is consistently popping in my head coz it’s the music from our mini reunion trip with friends

Thinking
of my duty this New Year’s break. I will be alone spending the New Years day but no biggie.

Smelling
the mango peach pie I bought from the fastfood chain we went to. Love anything that is mango flavored.

Wishing
for a better and peaceful remaining days of 2016.

Hoping
I could buy the best *toot! I have been wanting this for more than half decade already. That’s how important this to me.

Wearing
my blue spaghetti strap mini dress

Loving

how I spent Christmas today. I may have slept on the actual salubong or the Christmas Eve Noche Buena (it’s already two years in a row. Huhuhu! Here’s the link of my post when I slept from last year https://annjerusalem.wordpress.com/2015/12/24/slept-at-christmas-eve/) but this day is still worthwhile. I am loving the mini reunion with my friends. Thanks to Richie and Mark Lester for initiating the trip.

Wanting
to go somewhere and thanks to my friends for the short trip. We get to bond even if it’s for a short period of time and unplanned. Those unexpected moments are oftentimes the most worthwhile and most memorable.

Needing
a new camera pls…. who’s a Good Samaritan here. I am saving my money for it. Hope I could buy the soonest. I still need this…hahaha (this is my previous need entry)

Feeling
Happy and contented. Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year because of families and friends. I am happy and grateful today.

Have a great remaining days of 2016 guys! Merry Christmas and A Prosperous New Year! May this day serve as a reminder of how God loves us that He gave His only Begotten Son.

CHRISTMAS 2016

 

Just a few more hours left and we will be celebrating the day of birth of our Savior Lord Jesus Christ. Most of us I think are already preparing foods and gifts in time for Christmas.

In our family, what we traditionally do is preparing a simple dinner and after dinner, we will be going to our Aunt’s house and mingle with our relatives, my cousins. (More kwento, more fun). Since, I am already working, every Christmas, I was the one in-charge or who gives gifts or presents to my young cousins, nieces and nephews. I have goddaughters and godsons who also come over our house and mostly I give them toys that I bought from previous months because I usually anticipate that many will come and I prepare in advance. But this year, because of my hectic schedule from work like I am already on a Christmas break and I got a message  the other day from our bosses that I need to attend a conference that happened yesterday so, I had no chance to buy gifts for my families and friends. (Whoever decide to come in our house, expect that I cannot give them presents. I am so sorry in advance)

But, aside from the exchanging of gifts because if we say Christmas, what pops out in our head first is always the material things like exchanging of gifts, buying new clothes and many more. We often neglect to remember the true essence of Christmas and that is remembering how God loves us that He made our Lord Jesus Christ human for us and in time save us  from all our sins. Did you know or I already said from my previous posts that my most favorite bible verse is John 3:16 (By the way, this verse was thought by my 98 year old grandmother when I was a child and until now, it is instill in my head) “For God so love the world, that He gave us His only son. That whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life” This verse serves as a reminder of how God loves us and we should always be a loving person always and always believe in His mighty power.

Christmas for me equates in Love. From God’s love to us to loving others the way He loves us. We should always be grateful still for whatever circumstances that we are facing. We should pray to our Lord for His guidance that we are doing the things the way He planned for us.

Have an amazing Holidaze to all of us. Merry Christmas and a Bountiful New Year everyone!

2016-12-24

Someone greeted me an anniversary today. Yes the picture above says that I am having an anniversary in blogging my thoughts, crazy antics and being a fan for A&M. It has been  a crazy, whirlwind and happy year indeed. I am who I am here. I get to share pieces of my life and I am loving it because in here I have been more open to myself.

Here’s a link of my very first entry here: Yay! https://annjerusalem.wordpress.com/2015/12/23/when-you-wanted-to-say-something/

75

It started as complete strangers

By a twist of fate

You found each other

Your heart opened its gate.
Those perfect moments may not be always perfect, 

But being with you seems everything makes it perfect. 

Save your heart for him

For he cares about you the way you care about him
A diamond in the rough 

But your relationship will stay tough

For you are holding each other’s heart

You got each other’s side and back
I’m reaching a beautiful life 

Or I’ve caught my reason of being alive

For I’m surrounded with my loves

That reciprocate the love I give
I’m destined to be yours 

You’re destined to be mine

I love how serendipity takes its toil

For he gave me my destiny and my world

Conquer

Me speaking in front of prominent people of our town. Photo credits to the FB of our beloved Board Member of the First District of Cagayan, Ma’am Olive B. Pascual.

Have I written in my previous blog that I have fear of speaking infront of even the smallest group of people? What more if you are tasked to speak to some of the most prominent people of your municipality or even the whole province? What would you feel speaking to people older and wiser than you?

It was already 1:30 in the morning of December 14, 2016 when I was able to come home from a work related report that we needed to rush and finish to pass on that same day. Because of the team effort from our boss and us, we were able to finish it on time. When I arrived home late, sleeping was very hard for me (insomniac moment) so I only got my sleep at around 3:30 in the morning. I intended not to go to work that day but in unexpected circumstance, my phone rang and I got text messages from my boss instructing me on something. Because I’m a diligent and responsible person, I need to do what my boss tell me even though he promised that I need not to go to work to this day.

I was clueless on what will I do this day based from the instruction of my boss plus include my having a lightheadedness and being woozy from the lack of sleep. As per instruction, he said that I’m the only one who knows about the book we are making for each barangays in the municipality (I feel flattered from that kind of compliment. char) so I need to present such infront of the barangay captains who were having a meeting in our Multi-Purpose Hall. My boss asked me if I can do it? Being my own self, I doubted of course so I answered him I don’t know if I can. But he said I can and I know at the back of my head that I needed to brave myself to conquer my fears. I went at the meeting of the Liga ng Mga Barangay late because I needed to read first the presentation I am showing them.  Then came my time to speak when our beloved Board Member entered the room. That added my nervousness of course. What I am worried more is that I will be rattled in stating her name and it will be very embarrassing on my part. Of course, I need to stay calm and not show them how my heart was beating so fast, how my hands are so cold and how I am sweating profusely. I always get that symptoms of nervousness whenever I speak in front of many people and the people I am talking too are the important people of our municipality. Included in my nervousness too is that I need to present them minus the presentation I prepared. This will be an impromptu presentation.

After the presentation, I felt consumed. My energy is as low as you could imagine. But even if that was the case, I still felt proud of myself. I was able to speak to them in my calmest self, I was able to deliver them in the best I could be or in a way they could apprehend what I am saying about, I did not rattle especially the names of these people, and most especially I CONQUERED MY FEAR. I was not to there to impress but to convey the message I want them to understand and I believe that I was able to do it. I am no expert at public speaking but I felt I did well this time. This boosted my confidence a little bit even though it’s already innate in me being timid and still having fears about it. I still am not looking forward on having public engagements or sort of because i am like that but when there come a time that the same will happen, I know I have this kind of experience to back me up.

“It’s alright to have fears because this will remind yourself that you’re also human but there are times that you need to conquer them too so that a better you will come out victorious.”

From a complete strangers ➡ then there came an unexpected encounter that rocked the whole nation ➡ the Tamang Panahon came ➡ a friendship was built ➡ it became closer & deeper relationship ➡ she said yes and he was the happiest ➡ after five years of relationship came the proposal ➡ the Wedding of the century happened ➡ after a year the wedding dance was relived and the best news in this budding family came ➡ then the family is completed with the birth of the twins.

What a turn out of events it is. We riding in a very memorable and happy journey of Alden and Maine. We are very lucky to have witnessed this love story that will only come once in a lifetime. The above timeline is a rough draft of what happened to this journey and we are not finished yet because the best is still coming. This is how a phenomenon will live forever at least in my heart for I am enjoying the ride of what happened or will happen in this love story. From my realization, I know I need to step back and give them enough time for each other so that their relationship is just between them only and no one can butt-in in this relationship even though it’s impossible nowadays because of their phenomenal status in which I still brag about it coz they are still on top. I know that it is hard to maintain it but because of the uniqueness of how this team was made, it will remain in our hearts always.

Happy #ALDUB17thMonthsary A&M and the whole ADN. Let’s continue the reason of why this happened and that is spreading love and good vibes. It’s the Christmas season so let this be a reminder to all of us not to mind those bashers, trolls, negativities whatever you call it. Instead let’s show them kindness even if they’re not.

Closer

Stronger

A love

We strive

Close to you

Out of the blue

You’re the reason that I’m happy

Even at times when everything is silly

     Whenever Thursdays is coming, it excites me, it gives me another energy and inspiration that we should always show kindness and love everyday of our lives. But many people even in this fanmily have forgotten the essence of why this phenomenon happened or where did it start. Some were making commentaries on others that is already irrelevant and sometimes hurtful just to prove them that we’re still on top. I still believe in this quote that, “kung binato ka ng bato, batuhin mo ng tinapay” If A&M are thrown with different issues and bashing, I hope we prevail tolerance and let us be the one to show that we’re well mannered and respectful even to others that are not. If we really love A&M, then let us emulate their being genuine, respectful and loving persons.

     Happy #ALDUB74thWeeksary everyone. Let this day be a reminder of love in unexpected ways, spreading and teaching of love and just love. I will be busy today because of the conference I am attending so, enjoy the rest of the day ADN!

Love Rhyme

A love that is immature

But thinks about the future

A love that is corny

But makes the other person happy

A love that is simple

Yet it still feels magical

A love that accept flaws

And understand what he/she saw

A love that is silly

With you are worthy

A love so young

But it’s like so long and strong

A love that is patient and kind

It’s you that I found

A love with you

Is real and true

A love that rhyme

Will last a lifetime

73

So many questions 
And the answers always point towards you

So many hesitations

But everything is clear with you 

You may say that nothing has changed 

But when you go in silence 

When you cherish your private moments

That’s what change is all about

And the way you treasure each other 

Is another range

To a deeper feelings

That we hope and pray that will last a lifetime, a forever. 

Seems like everyone is interested 

But you never bragged

You held back into what you want to share

For you want everything to be just between you

That’s your magic

You need not to share everything

You need not to show to the public

And people still feel the real you. 

This equates to love

It started with love 

Then spreading of love

And let’s hope it will be an infinite loop of love. 

Happy #ALDUB73rdWeeksary A&M and the whole ADN. Now that we’re this far, I realized something very important. Yes I am a fan of AlDub/MaiChard. As much as I want some updates of their whereabouts all the time, I think I need to step back now and just be contented with what they want to share. I know that their off cam moments are what they cherished the most and of course who doesn’t want to see them the way they are without the camera but because my love for them is immeasurable now, I’ll just be behind to the things that will make them happy. I realized that they needed some time alone to cultivate their feelings into deeper one and they can just do that by being away with them or stepping back to all the craziness of fans. At first, I didn’t understand why they are as silent as they are when they’re together until I realized that whenever they are with each other, they are the person they are and not the character they portray so, they need not to broadcast such to the public. From that way I know how they value each others feelings and not allowing others to come by their budding relationship. Happy celebration to the reminder of why this phenomenon happened – LOVE. Let’s spread love to all the people we meet. 

Those I LOVE YOUs are so real and kilig to the ear.

Attention / Caution:

If you haven’t watched the movie yet, you can skip reading this. If you intend to not watch the movie, then you’ll regret it. I warned you.

Disclaimer:

I am no movie expert. I am just a movie enthusiast and I love Bossing Vic, JoWaPao and AlDub that’s why I chose to watch the movie. And because I love these people and watched the previous edition of the movie, I went there not expecting anything grandeur in terms of its special effects,  the casts because most of them were already present in the previous movie of it. I just went there to laugh and be entertained with the movie.

So here’s some points I want to share with you without giving much of it coz I believe that you still need to see it.

1. The addition of AlDub in the cast – their chemistry is still undeniable and unquestionably super kilig and their short stint in the movie gave the love flavor of the movie. The comedic antics of Maine compliment those with Bossing Vic plus the guy next door look of Alden made the movie pleasing to the eye.

2. Bohol scenery – I love the scenic views of Bohol that is used in the movie. It made me want to go to Bohol too. Aside from the Chocolate Hills that we know, there’s more to see and look forward to experience it.

Screenshot_2016-12-04-20-42-11_1.jpg

3. No more Satana – of course, if there’s a hero, there should be a villain to antagonize the story and Satana is not included anymore. It’s refreshing that Satana already backed as the good one. Epy Quizon as the main villain is effective in this kind of movie. He just fits the character.

4. Levelled up special effects – as I have said I went in the cinema expecting nothing in terms of the special effects because based from the past movies of it, I think it’s always the downside of it but the EK10 is different. They see to it that they levelled up their game. I like how they incorporated the millennial flavah in the movie. Imagine Enteng is doing live videos of him, making IG like updates and many more. Jpeg

5. The father-son/daughter and grandfather-grandson relationship – I like how this movie still values family. See the movie why I said that.

6. The Abangers – I also like them. Each characters were highlighted and no one was left out. They have their own moments.

7. JoWaPao – eventhough I didn’t like much the hubadhubad powers of Tidora (I’m kinda conservative you know), I love the inclusion of the tres lolas in the movie. They are the comedic side of the movie. Every time they were seen in the screen, I’m laughing out loud much.

8. Remy – I don’t know what’s the real name but he for me is a revelation in the movie and he is the one who touched my heart. I thought when the main characters sort of made fun of him in their conferences and he’s not that known for me is somewhat just an addition but I was wrong and you need to find out what I meant. He for has the best message in the movie.

9. Bossing’s good looks – even though the gray hair is very evident in the movie to sort of making Enteng old, he still looked damn hot. Whoever is his stylist, you pretty made a good job.Jpeg

10. It’s a secret at the last part of the movie. I just love how Enteng said that he wants that face to be the permanent face of his Faye. We all hope so too Bossing. I felt how you’re so in love.

There you have it, my sort of review of the Enteng Kabisote 10 and the Abangers. You need to watch the movie to experience what I have experienced. As for me, I super enjoyed the movie. It’s really entertaining. It is good for families whose children are addicted to computer games, gadgets and the like for it will teach a lesson about it.
