Happy Sunday everyone! How’s your weekend so far? The days gone so fast right? Have you thought of we’re almost done with the half of the first month of 2017? I also spent my weekends at home and did nothing. I needed to relax my brain for I know the coming days will be hectic again at work. But my brain is also telling me to do something worthwhile that’s why here I am again writing. I don’t religiously update or publish much these past few days but I am trying my best to once in awhile visit here. I truly miss writing and I am happy to have purchased some stuffs that would help me rekindle my writing skills.(Naks! Parang totoo and pro) I am also starting my 2017 with making a journal. (This would be my first ever official journal and I am excited about it.)

CURRENTLY 

Reading

 

Jpeg

As you can see, I am still into my Lang Leav book. I haven’t read all of it but with what I have read already, so far so good. I am enjoying every piece and I am also inspired to do the same in the future. I hope my writing skills will love me the way I love reading especially poetry books. 

Writing
my 21st edition of Sunday Currently

Listening

I am enjoying the newly released singles of Ed Sheeran. I am digging the lyrics and tunes especially the Castle in the Hill

 

Thinking
of what to write in my journal. What is the first step in doing such. (Any suggestions people?)

Smelling
my MS lavender lotion. Super soothing and relaxing smell

Wishing
I could fill my journal with good memories and writings.

Hoping

Despite the stress that my work gives me, I hope I could endure them and with God’s guidance, all of it will fall into place.

Wearing

my spaghetti strap mini dress topped with black fitted sando.

Loving

my new Journal notebook

Wanting

a new *toot! I will divulge everything when I already have it on my hand.

Needing

enough sleep. I think I may be in bed all day but I still lack sleep. How was that batugan? 

Feeling
happy because of life. confused with work and the things my colleague have been doing lately. Sleepy (buona notte!)

Have a great weekdays ahead everyone! Let’s welcome the new week with full of enthusiasm and positive perspective and perception in life. This kind of attitude makes me endure those days that sometimes make you feel dull and weary. And of course God’s guidance too. (Always seek for His guidance and protection) Good night again! Ciao!

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

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.

Happy Halloween guys! (If you’re thinking why is it that my first greeting unto you is about Halloween and my photo above is by far and unconnected. It’s just that I was looking at the photos on my gallery and these what popped-up first. I think these photos are more relevant to us in the North because of the devastation we had to go through to ST Lawin. I took  these photos earlier today when I went south and I saw in my very own eyes how terrible the damage incurred in these places and we’re luckier to have a minor damage in our town. Thank you God. But on a brighter note, the sky is blue and the sun is shining again and the beauty of nature is more appreciated and given importance nowadays. We learned our lesson, “I hope so” to conserve energy, love thy mother earth, significance of planting more trees and making sure that you’re always ready in times of  disaster) Anyway, How was your celebration of the Halloween so far? Well, as for our family, we do not really celebrate it like we had to do costume or attend into a Halloween party or do Trick or Treat. hindi po uso sa amin yan. 

CURRENTLY 

Reading
About the history of Halloween. (By the way, tomorrow October 31 is the real celebration of it)

Writing
my 15th edition of The Sunday Currently

Listening

To different horror stories

Thinking
of how I could easily assemble my newly purchased stand fan. I can’t unscrew the locks.

Smelling
nothing. I have a clogged nose because of the change of weather

Wishing
that I could be of help to the people struck by ST Lawin.

Hoping
to a more productive weekdays and less stressful workload

Wearing
my colorful duster.

Loving

my braided hair and how it naturally curls my hair when I  untie it

Wanting
to buy a new camera. (may Santa Claus ba dyan?)

Needing
an exercise. My mama is already worried that I’m getting fatter everyday. (E, masarap kumain e. Excuse! Excuse! Excuse!)

Feeling
happy coz I got a copy of the Mega and Garage Magazine with A&M on the cover. (Next target is the Preview and Style Weekend hehehe)

 

Have a meaningful observance of the All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day everyone. Dalawin po natin ang mga mahal natin sa buhay na namayapa na. Baka tayo ang dalawin nila. hahaha!!! On a serious note, have a safe visit to the grave of our beloved departed and don’t forget to say a prayer for them.

#ALDUBEBSaTamangPanahon -A YEAR AFTER

The photos above are reminder of how far we’ve come and become as a fandom. And we’re still a force to be reckoned with, a team to beat, and still on top. It’s been a year already of the #ALDUBEBSaTamangPanahon wherein unity in a nation was shown at its best. 

I still remember that day when I was so frustrated because I wasn’t able to purchase a ticket (I cried a little). I still remember before that day as I planned to sleep early to wake up at midnight but due to excitement, my plan didn’t prosper, instead, I stayed awake and just waited for the 12 midnight to join our so-called twitter party. I remember this day that I stayed awake for more than 24 hours just to check the number of tweets for the OHT. I remember this day how our family were very soaked up in our television that everyone is at their seat, very eager of what will happen to this day. I remember this day how our family put in actions the lessons learned from the wise words of Lola N and that is valuing patience and how things fall into place by just knowing how to work hard of it and wait for the right time and circumstance. I remember this day that it’s still fresh in my heart and in my mind my personal experience of the #ALDUBEBSaTamangPanahon. 

Here are my top choices of the moments in #ALDUBEBSaTamangPanahon as my heart and mind could remember. 

1. The ADNs unity – the mere fact that the biggest indoor arena with 55K capacity was filled with lots of ADNs is already amazing isn’t? I also love the human wave when the themesong of EB was actually played. 

2. The flashback stories and the individual performances of the three Lolas. – I enjoyed all of it. But if I will choose one performance from the JoWaPao, I’ll choose the costume changes done with Wally. He’s at his prime when he did that. 

3. The individual performances of Alden and Maine. – it shows how talented they are and how powerful are them even individually. Even though I felt a little bit awkward to Alden’s sexy dance but damn he’s one hot guy there. And of course the dubsmash skills of Maine is unparalleled. She’s really a queen of dubsmash. 

4. The kiss of Maine and Baste. – even though it’s a BTS moment, I find it cute though of how Maine is so fond of children. She’s a good mother in the making… Hahaha! 

5. The Frankie Production number. – the one who thought of it is a clever one. That’s how advertising mind should think. 

6. The teary eyed A&M – you can see and feel how genuine their hearts are, how grateful they are to us and how they savor the moment. 

7. The first dance of A&M  and the putting of the shoe – it’s a Cinderella moment wherein you’re dancing with your prince charming and the shoes chose the right girl for you because you and her are destined to be together. 

8. The moment wherein Maine is watching their AlDub videos and there came Alden at her back wherein Maine looked at Alden – that glance and then, they started to walk towards each other, then you see those teary but glowing eyes, this moment is something. 

9. The moment wherein Alden sang GGMY with Maine beside her. That’s a proud moment for Alden. 

10. The first hug of A&M – that moment is so magical and ethereal at the same time. That’s it pancit moment. Seeing that scene makes you believe in destiny and serendipity. It’s a start of something new for them. It’s a brewing relationship that we all hope for a forever. 

11. The message of Alden to Maine and vise versa Maine to Alden. No words to describe it. Just understand what they meant and feel how that message wants it to be felt. 

12. The main purpose of #ALDUBEBSaTamangPanahon – a worthy cause that brings not only entertainment but mostly doing charity. The proceeds of this event is the construction of libraries which our youth, the future of this nation will use. What a worthy cause indeed. 

Now that A&M are married in Kalyeserye – From the pabebe wave, a simple hand gesture to putting of ring in each other’s hand and saying a promise to love and cherish what they have in front of their millions of fans and most especially in front of our Lord is a testament of valuing each other’s relationship and treasuring the friendship that was built. And wherever this relationship could take place, we should always remember these days, the #ALDUBEBSaTamangPanahon and  #ALDUBWedding that made a nation united.

presentation1

Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s Sunday again and we still don’t have current (power lines are still on the process of repair and they are saying that the estimated date is until the 29th)  and our communication lines were still unstable (one of the cellular sites just got back after two days after being interrupted) but I made myself very productive today because I was able to update my blog despite our situation. I am actually updating this one in the middle of the dark night because our generator ran out of gasoline. We need to wait until there’s available to fill the tank of  the generator. These were some of the aftermath of supertyphoon Lawin. Before I do my currentlies, I just want to state what happened to me after the storm. There’s a positive turnout from the catastrophe that we just experienced. I was away from work and was able to bond with my families in mother side. I was able to travel different municipalities and enjoy myself chatting with my cousins, having a movie marathon with them and more chikas. There’s a positive outcome from the challenge that we faced. Literally, as the song says, “there’s always a rainbow after the rain.”

CURRENTLY 

Reading
The #ALDUBWedding write-ups. It makes you feel how love is despite being loveless.

Writing
aside from my 14th edition of the Sunday currently, I was able to write my experience from the Super-typhoon Lawin and of course the #ALDUBWedding that happened just yesterday (by the way I didn’t write much on it because I want the videos to speak for itself)

Listening

to She Used to be Mine by Sara Bareilles. I felt like this song just describes me. So much feels. Just listen unto it to know what I mean. Aside from it, my ears were irritated to the sound of the generator

Thinking
of when will the power lines be fixed. I am already a refuge to my aunt’s house and I am thinking of what was their feelings towards it.

Smelling
awful smell of the gasoline from our generator.

Wishing
all is well that ends well from the people devastated by Lawin.

Hoping
that all the challenges that the people who were struck by the typhoon could overcome it and this will serve as a vehicle to move on/ move forward and hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Wearing
my checkered shorts and pink shirt.

Loving

my aunt’s generosity of letting me stay in their house and charge all the gadgets I have. I was able to do these updating staffs because I have enough batteries and power supply to back it up.

Wanting
a fresh new start for everyone.

Needing
my wi-fi so that I could do the staff I was doing everyday.

Feeling
a bit sad because of what happened to us. I am also happy despite the calamity we faced because we are still alive.

Have a great weekday ahead! I hope our power supply will be back the soonest and stay safe wherever you may be. I will be going to work again tomorrow and good luck to me.

The Sunday Currently/ 13

sunday-currently-13

Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s Sunday again and it’s already super late. Probably publishing this a Monday already. I need not to be awake late because, eventhough it was announced earlier tonight that all classes were suspended, still it has no bearing for me because of two points: 1) I am not already studying or no student anymore 2) I am working in an organization that prioritizes emergency situation. These mean that I need to wake up early tomorrow (Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love yah Tomorrow! to the tune of Annie. hahaha!) But I want to share the good vibes that happened to me this day. I woke up early morning to go to the north and when I was on my way there, I bump into an old man (my uncle by the way) it was raining hard and I who has an umbrella was able to share it with my uncle. It’s been so long ago since I was able to talk to him and this was my chance to have a catch up to what’s happening in his life. After this unexpected bond with my uncle, I met a woman who was handling a very heavy water dispenser. I helped her carry the dispenser to her car and seeing her smile towards me made my feeling uplifted. This day is a better day than ever….

CURRENTLY 

Reading
My previous Sunday Currently posts.

Writing
My thirteenth edition of the Sunday currently and at the same time, finishing some stuff that you will learn Sa Tamang Panahon. Naks! Kalyeserye is back and the terms I am using is sort of I got it from KS of course and I’m the happiest

Listening

To new version of My Guardian Angel. Thanks for the heart-wrenching and heartwarming rendition of this song A. My favorite line would be…

I will never let you fall (let you fall)
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all (through it all)
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

‘Cause you’re my, you’re my, my, my true love, my whole heart
Please don’t throw that away
‘Cause I’m here for you
Please don’t walk away and
Please tell me you’ll stay, whoa, stay, whoa

Thinking
So many things right now but my priority is on how I can see them personally. I am having a hard time and somewhat upset/frustrated because I wasn’t able to go to the #AldubNationFest2016. I was able to get an e-ticket to the said occasion but my line of work doesn’t permits me and I also have no courage of doing things all alone. My sense of dependency to my parents always get me and this is the weakness that I cannot control ever since.

Smelling
the scent of M from bench. I love spraying it on my room.

Wishing
That the plans I am making in my head will turn into reality *fingers’ crossed.

Hoping
for a stronger and more independent me in the coming days and months and forever. I am such a weakling and I hope that I can come out to that shell.

Wearing
my pambahay shorts and an Aldub shirt from the IYAM giveaway that I received

Loving
the Livestreaming of the #ALDUBNationFest2016 . Eventhough I wasn’t able to attend the said occasion, I get to watch what is actually happening in the SMX. Seeing A&M attend and being very generous to their fans through having pictures with them and do autograph signing and treating us like their friends or making us feel how important us to them. I am loving, loving, loving it!!! And I love them both.

Wanting
to sleep early tonight but my sense of eagerness/happiness doesn’t allow me. I am still kilig to A&M especially the beso, mano and hug of M to A’s family and of course how will I forget the statement of A kissing M in their wedding. You’ll understand what I am talking about if you watch the ADNFest2016.

Needing
nothing right now. I am still elated on how fast are the turnout of events these past few days. I don’t feel like I need anything as of the moment. (Except enough sleep pala)

Feeling
Happy talaga as in. My upset/frustrated moment a little while ago is officially gone. Thanks to A&M for always making my bad days into good days, my sad days into happy days and my loveless days into kilig days.

That’s it, pancit! Hope you guys had a great week ahead! Stay safe and dry coz after Ty Karen, the PAGASA is seeing Lawin entering our PAR. have a cozy and sweet night everyone. As for me, I hope I get to sleep …

Masayang balikan ang nakaraan
Sa araw na una kang natanaw at nakamayan

May kuryenteng dumaloy sa aking katawan 

Kuryenteng nagpasaya at nagturong magmahal at pahalagahan ang pag-iibigan

Ang hindi maipaliwanag na kadahilanan

Ay naging malinaw sa mga araw na nagdaan

Sa tuwing ikaw ay nariyan 

Araw ko ay nag-iiba, buhay ko ay puno ng kaligayahan

Ngayong sigurado na ako sa aking nararamdaman 

Buong puso kong sasabihin at ipapangalandakan 

Nagpapasalamat sa Panginoon dahil ikaw ang binigay at tinuran 

Na makasama sa habang buhay at magpakailanman 

Ang hingin ang kamay at humarap sa pamilya ng iyong irog ng may karangalan

Ang pagrespeto sa tradisyon at kaugalian

At magpapatunay ng iyong mabuting hangarin at tapat na layunin

Sa taong nagbigay kulay sa iyong buhay

Sa taong nagmahal sa’yo ng buong-buo 

At mamahalin mo rin ng buong puso 

Sana sa susunod na landas na tatahakin

Ay  magdala ng walang hanggang kaligayahan 

Walang hanggang pag-iibigan 

At walang hanggang ikaw lamang. 

The Sunday Currently/ 12

It’s been very long time since I update my Sunday currently. I’m baaaaccckkkk! How time flies right? We were almost half way of October. My weekends for the past weeks have been very laid back. Just like today, I end up staying and chilling at home, appreciating the simplicity of life and enjoying my short weekend staycation. But beforehand this rest day, I went through a very stressful workload, concerning the problems of other. I just hope this will end in a positive note and we can solve in a peaceful way.

CURRENTLY

READING

Tweets of the launching of A’s Album, their kulitan with M in IG, his having a Diamond Record Award. You’ll understand what I’m saying if you have read my previously published post. Hahaha!

WRITING

My 12th edition of the Sunday Currently. But aside from that, I’m planning to write my thoughts on the pros & cons of being a millennial or the social media per se.

LISTENING

To the featured rap artist in KMJS now. These kids are really great at singing their hearts out through their rap song. Despite their unfortunate condition, they have their talents to back them up. I hope our country will have programs that will support talented kids that will hone and improve their capabilities. I am also thrilled when I heard the newest version of My Guardian Angel. I need to have a copy of that!

THINKING

Of what to do tomorrow. It’s workday weekday again tomorrow. As what I have said awhile ago, I’m also collating my thoughts now on my next publish post.

SMELLING

Aside from the perfume that was given to me last week by my cousin, I’m also liking the smell of my hands enjoying my Cheetos Cheddar Jalapenos.. Thanks to M, I got curious to the taste and now I’m enjoying not only the taste but also the smell.

WISHING

To have a baking appliances, tools and ingredients. I’m planning to bake the cakes I want because I love giving cakes. I know the basic steps of making cakes and I want to improve that skill of mine. I also want to make a personalized cake for my families during special occasions that’s why.

HOPING

That my decision in life of staying with my family is the right decision. I am having second thoughts of what if I pursue a career abroad, what would life be like for me? But at the back of my mind, my heart is at peace with being beside them and that’s what I’m holding on whenever I am having doubts.

WEARING

My blue spaghetti strap dress.

LOVING

The new cover of A & M in Mega magazine. I need to buy the print issue of it.

WANTING

To go to the ADN fest. I have an FB friend who is currently attending the launching of A’s newest album and I felt a bit of jealousy. I also want to see them (A&M) personally and I don’t know when or how will that happen. Next week will be the fest, I have ticket for one and unfortunately, I can’t go because I don’t have the guts and my family wouldn’t allow too…

NEEDING

Some exercise. My mother is now bothered on how I gain a lot of weight.

Double chin pa more.

FEELING

Bloated and heavy. Yes I admit it now that I am super big that my clothes are very tight to wear now. I just need more encouragement char. I also feel kilig with the little conversation of A&M in IG post.

Have a great week ahead!!! If you’re going to work or school or just in your house, I hope that all of us have a brighter and positive outlook ahead of us. Have a great week ahead! Let’s exercise or should I say I need to exercise and I have to do it now before I regret in the future.

63rd and 4th

A year has past

So many things have changed

But we never felt this kind of happiness 

Yes we are happy then

But we’re happier now

We were allowed only to see each other by a rule

A somewhat Romeo and Juliet inspired

Then we gain the trust of the elder 

We were granted to see, feel, breath, hear and talk to each other

After that is so much different, we were stronger 

We were better 

We are each other’s source of strength. 

Whenever I see your face

It’s like a sun have risen 

You always brighten up my day

I always felt your care

You gave me the importance of like your own life

From the friendship we built 

Into something more than this

From a lot like love

It became unconditional love

I hope you’re happy in my company

Because I too is happy when I’m with you. 

I feel safe even in diving into the ocean

Because I know I can trust you with my life. 

We share our secrets together 

We sometimes act like kids and we don’t care

We give each other’s advice

And then we follow without hesitation 

You bring out the best in me

You vanished all my insecurities

I wish as the day will past

When there come a time that we’re unsure of our feelings, 

We resort to these experiences 

To realize that I’m happy with you

And my life will be gone wasted being away from you. 

It may have started as reel

But my feelings for you is real. 

I’ll respect your decision if you want me to wait

I can patiently wait even until forever… 

Just Stay

I want to grab your hands

To beg to just stay

But I can’t do that

You’re confused with your feelings

That you’d rather be away

Than stay miserable

I want to hug you so tightly

To beg you to just stay

But I can’t do that

You are going away to find youself

That you’d rather  breath alone

Than hug the problem 


I want to see you in the eye

To beg you to just stay

But I can’t do that

Your eyes are crying

Your heart is aching

Your mind is freezing

I may be in pain

I am a lost star

But I will endure

I will wait patiently

Hoping you’ll find your way

To imagine a life with me

And realize to just stay.

I know I can’t force you to just stay

And you’re choosing to be away

I love you forever and a day

So I am letting you go now, hoping someday

You find your way

And realize that the place is in my heart.
