2012 had been a year completely of CHANGES. learned a lot and hoping would be wiser with the experiences i've been tested...first and fresh new set of challenges were served...some i handled with absolute naivety, while some were just another redundant/intermittent recurring episodes that i just walked away...there were a lot of decisions i finally gave a GO! after years of planning. as always the year was full of ups and downs coupled with never ending mostly smiles and a bit of tears both for joy and sadness...nevertheless, i'm happy and truly proud of myself for surviving another crazy year...so as per blog tradition even if it's super way late posting (ehhhh CNY just ended so it's still NEW YEAR eheheheeh) i am giving homage to the people who stamped my 2012...it's safe to say that with them the past year had been less unbearable and more endurable...these people were sorta my pegs/inspiration pak! kembular! in no particular order of importance here they are:
FAMILY - i can't help but put them on the list on a yearly basis...i mean with everything i had to go through from the moment i asked to be on my own they were the people who supported it 100%...regardless if it sounded very unreasonable...no matter what happens be it working on my advantage or against me they always remind me to have faith and that everything will fall into the right place. they have been my unending source of strength and courage and with them on my team i feel that i can or will try to be the best in whatever endeavors i take. they are my number one source of real love...the one that never questions, never doubts and never judge.
JACQUEE - talk about vanity shots and FB as source of daily news feed and i only have one girlfriend to turn to nyahahhaa... we were colleagues before but we never had the chance to bond until i was whisked to Singapura and we become roomies. it's really true that you'll never get to totally know the person until you get to live with them...oh well...can't be helped with some downer moments but it didn't outweigh the fun and happy moments we shared...the insta moments where we can't helped but feel the girl in us control our emotions, the retail therapies when we feel down, the jogs to ECP and strolling the whole geylang to de-stress and the blushes and ohhh my gushes about family and relationship dramas during late nights...i will surely miss them geng but life has to go on and let's believe that everything happens for a "good reason"...just so you know i'm always the kaladkarin friend you can turn to nyahahhaha :) unless keke ang nag-invite then kabalo naka unsa akong pili-on nayahahaa :-p
ENRICO ORBE JR - i have to put the full name dong so as not to confuse you with the erics' i know LOL...it's really funny how we first meet...i wouldn't go into details but to make the story short he left a not so good impression on me...what he did to a dear friend was a guidebook straight of an A**hole manual...without blinking he had to vanish...but life always have this funny tweaks that will remind you that it's a small world after all and we ended up as colleagues. since we have no choice given that our desk is next to each other, he then became my everyday ka-chismis. we suddenly become the go to person when i needed advice with a guy perspective on handling relationships and in return i help him on how to date 101 sincerely and truthfully (take note dong hap!)...eric is a good friend to have around...he is reliable and mature for the most part nyhahha :-p but he is still accountable for what he did and he is really trying to right the wrongs..i am not endorsing for him to be forgiven on that part because that is not mine to give dba dong? in fact i constantly remind him to make an effort because what he did was very very wrong...nevertheless, he shouldn't be judged because of his past...it has always been my mantra to give everyone a clean slate...i gave him one and as of this hour i am not regretting that decision...so happy on your blooming lovelife dong sana tuloy2x sa jackpot round na but you need to do one more thing and it's a demand not a request LOL.
TATA - the newest member of my family...never ending welcome to the family greetings again! i have to raise the roof and unlimited thumbs up to this guy who is now legally and officially my brother-in-law nyahahaahha for keeping up and staying with my sister...you see when they just started i wasn't really a big fan of the love team...call it protective instincts of a big sistah or whatever you like but i was giving him hard looks and silent treatments during his house visits...lucky for me his patience and understanding was un-ending and he endured all of it...he slowly proved that he only have good intentions and that made me happy...i know he will take care and love my kapatid and i wish them good life together forever...
LICLIC & YOMA - year after year i always include lovebirds on my list because i am such a sucker for love! love! love! hopeless romantic to the extent but i am just happy to see people in love...it's meant to be infectious but i probably need a bigger love bug to be infected nyahahahaah...going back, the two worked closely together for years but never got the look of love until Singapore happened nayahahahaa :-p at first, i was the innocent and unknowing third wheel of the two until our friends started asking me if the two were an item...to which i replied " ohhh my...what?!?!!!??!!?" (that's how unassuming i can get folks nyahahaha ) before we knew it they made it official and everyone was just so happy and kilig for them...wishing them luck and "forever" soon...i sometimes call them my mama&papa since they give me sound advice on a very unstable me...much love for both of you nayahahaa :-p
KASH - patatims united! it's very rare to find someone who is not blood related but sees and loves you even with the fine print attached to your whole persona...it's having a sister from a different mother...i was super super delighted when yuya made time to visit me in here whilst on her 1 month vacation from dubai...it meant so much for me since at that time i was not financially well to go home and join the dreamgurlz...when my life went 360 degree turn late of last year she was one person i constantly talked to keep my sanity going...we've been through a lot and we even made almost all the wrong decisions with regards to love val val but we always know that in spite of it we have each other's back...we may commit the same mistakes all over again but who cares? we will probably make more until it becomes the right one dba yah? and the thought that maybe during our end of days you, me and the rest of the DGs will see each other at the home for the aged then it can be something i can maybe look forward cause i know we will farteey! farteey! even on our wheelchairs nyahahahaa :-p xoxo to you yah from SG to Dubailand see you soon!
JERRY MAE/ATE KC - when the going gets tough...who you gonna call??? it's not ghost busters but ate KC!!!! nyahahahaa...i always highlight that i am a very unstable and unreliable person when it comes to my own relationship dilemmas (makes me wonder why i am the go to person for dating and relationship advice amongst friends????) ate KC puts everything in perspective and she will walk me through the facts, make me realize that from the start it was doomsday waiting to happen and finally convince me to simple walk away and flip hair dba? uhmmmm she already saw me went through it like nth time so she probably and surely have it in scripting format as to what to say over the multiple times i entered this situation...the good thing though, she never slaps you with how come you didn't saw it coming? she makes it a point for you to take into account the facts and decide for your own what are you gonna do about it...previously, i would cry for months going through the bargaining stage before putting everything into conclusion but nowadays since it's in a loop episode then i finally learned the art of letting go and move forward with had held high ansaveh? what's commendable about ate KC is she never left even if this is happening over and over again...maybe she believes that i can always get past it and maybe maybe someday the right fit will finally come and willing to accept the whole of me tama bah? salamat ng marami :)
ALEXIE- pang ANTM levels kong maka pose LOL... to my delight alexie is a psycho loko2x so for the autistic me that is a relief! professionally she can psyche me and will eventually endorse me to go see someone nayahahaha ...kiddin' aside despite what happened she remained a friend...i guess it comes with maturity (i used that word to be on the safe side age wise geng ) that you don't have to be always together 24/7 to be a friend...it's enough to know that you will always be there when the situation needs be...let me thank you geng for the happy cooking and bone breaking housecleaning sa bahay ni joyce moments...it was really fun times...i'd like to say i miss it but we have to move forward for a happier life...still much love from me your forever patient LOL
WHACKIE - my self proclaimed cousin not blood related ...they say distance makes the heart go fonder (quotable quotes yet again!) not in a romantic way but the moments where before you go home after shift even if you are super duper sleepy you will still have the time to chat or have coffee with a friend just so you can promise to finally go out of the graveyard shift but won't after receiving the bonus nyahahahaha :-p it would be one of the things that i'd miss the warmth of people even at work...caz is also one of the few people i can count and go to when my life seems not at all sunny...it helps a lot to have people put things in an objectively and truthfully harsh manner ...i meant that it a good way hap....you see when life throws you into a sticky situation, some moments and decisions do not really make sense...you want to make a wise choice but you just cannot...so on those crisis and tense episodes i bother whackie nyahahahhaa...when all sides have been properly argued then laugh fest is in order...you can also check his blogsite: whackyadventures.blogspot.com for budget friendly tours in PH (free promo nani hap nayahahaaha )...i know your SG plan has been moved for like nth time already but still see yah soon :-p
notice the way face of my blog site? (proud pa dba? LOL) it's another year, so i gave it a new face lift but all the same color palette ...i'd like to believe that the new look is my attempt to look less picture-ry of myself and even updated the "about me" so it will give a better impression as to why this blog site was even created...lastly, change the background to the world map since i'm out to and hopefully can travel the world...fingers crossed on that one! :)
