“The truth is he hurt me more than I’ve ever been hurt before. It was not my own expectations, it wasn’t my heart, bleeding the fuck out, it wasn’t my view of the world through my not-so-innocent eyes. No. Believe it or not, it was not me or my overly dramatic ways and it wasn’t the rumors swirling around from the mouth of the people, who didn’t know anything at all. It was HIM. It was the aftermath of how he handled everything so carelessly like he never gave a shit and I believed him.

“If you just surrender and stop feeling this need of you have to control everything or even the people around you because, in reality, you don’t have any control over the people or your situation..that’s the beauty of living…instead of controlling, just let it be.Continue reading “Words of Wisdom from Toni G.”
“At the end of the day, I am a good woman.
I’m not perfect by any means but my intentions are good, my heart is pure and I love hard with everything I’ve got, and because of those things…I’m worth it.
Always have been and always will be.”
Slowly, your brain begins to erase every memory that ever brought you joy.
Don’t be afraid of starting over, of taking your time with someone new. Don’t be afraid of change. Of letting go of the people who keep doing you wrong. Those who keep on giving you stress and who keep on causing depression. Who bring more darkness than light. Who always doubt you. Who always have something bad to say. We don’t need that type of shit in our life.
When we say that we know someone well, how much do we really know about that person? Knowing someone can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse at times.
Relationships that start without any foretelling signs or motives are always right. However, every person will eventually encounter a “defining” moment and these moments will make them reveal their true colors.
Laziness, that is how I discovered Metromart online grocery delivery. Saturday noon, I am binge-watching my favorite Korean Drama, I suddenly craved for Cheese Bokki, the Korean fever has really gotten into me. Though SM Aura is just 30 mins away from home, I am hesitant to go out, the reasons: too lazy to get up and change clothes, the usual traffic, the expense for GRAB fare, long lines at the Supermarket, have to carry heavy bags alone.

When eating out, It’s more likely that I’ll be choosing warm, colorful and Tuscan inspired over other dead, cold and plain-looking restaurants. So here I am at Nonna’s Pasta and Pizzeria in Solenad, Nuvali.
Nonna is an Italian word for grandmother. Imagine your grandmother serving different dishes and stuffing you with big servings of pasta and pizza. Nonna’s is the hip version of Mama Lou’s. Mama Lou is more like an old school Italian restaurant but both serve gastronomic Italian food. Nonna’s have 3 branches: Nuvali, Ortigas, and Alabang.

Le Petit Soufflé is a restaurant in Century City Mall that offers French/Japanese fusion comfort food. I’ve always been attracted to cafes with a laidback and garden theme. Luckily, this is not just an “instagrammable restaurant”, their food is twice as good as the drool-worthy Instagram photos.
