To the Dad who…

  • happens to be the coolest father there is with all his calm and composed disposition (Things may have already gone south, but he would just be standing there quietly listening to some song while thinking of something to make things better.)
  • I’d rather be with when shopping than Mommy because he knows just where to go exactly. (That and he gives me all the freedom to choose whatever I want.)
  • always, always smells so good – even after he has dusted off every dirt in every corner of every room in the house
  • tells stories in the gayest, funniest way
  • whenever he curses me, makes me laugh hard instead of making me feel offended (I know, we could be a weird bunch. Harhar.)
  • cooks the yummiest Pastel in the world – with too much melted cheese, just the way I like it
  • has better taste in brands than anyone in the family
  • pampers, or better yet, spoils me all the time (Hahahaha!)
  • just can’t say no to her only daughter (Yeah, unica hija perks! Haha!)
  • I first tell about my plans because I know he wouldn’t argue with me, or would argue then give in eventually
  • whenever he is home and I am not yet, would wait outside for me until I get home, rain or shine!
  • remains to be the figure everyone in the family ultimately looks up to and listens to
  • teaches us life lessons in the most laid back way (You know, no pressure really.)
  • still calls me his “little girl” even at this age (Probably until forever)
  • sacrifices being with his family just to be the good provider that he is supposed to be
  • just like mom, loves us unconditionally
Happy Father’s Day! You are my hero!


I have been getting into list-type posts lately because they are just so easy to write. I hope this is not getting any boring because that would totally suck. Haha!

Bye for now! xx

The Happy List: Random List #1

I found out about this great idea on Nothing Spaces and Wild Spirit, and then I got inspired to start writing my own series of happy things. Why? Because it is what it is, a simple yet loud reminder of the good things, the little joys, that materialize day in and day out. It is refreshing and cathartic to find out that there are actually far more happy happenings around us than we initially think if we only choose to look closely. This also is a great way to get the cheery spirit back on down days particularly.
Today I begin with my first ever happy list, and I am writing this with a big, big smile on my face.
  1. The few, precious cold nights in summer
  2. Coca-Cola and that burning feeling in my throat when I gulp it down. Yes, I can be that shallow.
  3. Puerto Galera and Batangas memories
  4. Long, random conversations that shift from being all funny to all serious and back to all funny again with my favorite person
  5. Cheap but cute stuff. Super steal!
  6. Washing the dishes and sweeping the floor sometimes
  7. Unplanned lunch-outs, dinners, hangouts. I hate my bloated tummy, but a good company and good food! Who could resist that?!
  8. Bullying and being bullied back by the pamangkins
  9. The honesty that comes from me
  10. Messaging friends on a random night, even when I don’t really have anything to say, because I want them to know I remember them, and vice versa.
  11. Seeing that traffic is at its worst and knowing I have nowhere else to be but at home. Hallelujah.
  12. The BK Flame-grilled Cheeseburger bondings. Plus large fries.
I love this. There are just a lot of things to write it's impossible to contain them in one post. I urge everyone to make a list. Let's spread happy things and thoughts!

And while you're at it, you might also want to read other people's lists because they are just so inspiring.
