well rested

my sleeping habits are usually normal after a long trip abroad.  usual being 2 days of falling asleep long before the  late night news ends (or starts).

it's been 5 days. except for one night where i had to go to a wake, i've been sleeping like a baby. FOR 8 STRAIGHT HOURS! can i say i wanna jump and scream?

so, i won't break the spell. imma sleep early tonight.

could it be that all those tricks i did in Joburg are finally taking effect???

and so my wacka wacka journey ends

it's true what they say...there's no place like home..

in a few hours i shall bid Johannesburg a bittersweet home for the last 3 months.

i say bittersweet because i can't wait to go back to manila but at the same time, i know i will terribly miss the friends i've made while i'm here. South Afrikaans are wonderful people. gracious and polite and ever so friendly.

i wouldn't mind going back as i know there's still so much to see. more people to meet. a lot of things to explore.

so long Johannesburg. i will miss you. i can say i've grown and for that, i am thankful.

to all the shiny happy people i've met, maraming maraming salamat. my stay here was made extra special because you guys are around.

see you next year :)

to the EX..ulit

seeing you still with her after all these years brought a smile on my face...

our break-up was not in vain.

you ended up happy and gotten your act together.

i'm proud of you. really.

mas maganda man ako sa kanya, masaya naman siya sa yo.

she had her happy ending and at the end of the day, that's what matters :)

to the EX

to the one who broke my heart,  the reason i've become the jaded person i am today, i'm happy to see that you are happy.


PERO mas maganda pa rin ako sa kanya!

oh hindi ako bitter, honest lang.

but seriously, i'm glad you look happy.

unconventionally moisturized

it's a known fact. winter doesn't do one's skin any good. AT ALL!

since my entire stay in Johannesburg will be the whole duration of winter, i had to find the perfect moisturizer. the regular ones just don't work.

vaseline aloe fresh hydrating was the best i could find.

or so i thought.

i read somewhere that it's good to use hair conditioner when shaving legs. i tried it and voila! it was perfect!
not only were my legs hairless, they were shiny and soft and smooth! without having to put on lotion.

so tonight, i thought why not use it all over while in the shower.

was i a happy camper. now i have skin as soft as a baby's bottom. who knew right? thestepfordwitch will be proud hehehe!

freedom day

today marks the time i stop to care. i'm done. and i'm so glad it finally came.

funny thing is, i actually feel a sense of freedom. 

i've been cooped up in a world where a day starts and ends with all the stress of thinking about him.  
all the what ifs, could've beens and all the drama that IS him.

or i could have been in an uber long bangunot that i just had to wake up.

just like that. 

and as nightmares go, the bad things just stopped the moment i opened my eyes.

just like that. 

i am back. with a smile on my face. 

salamat universe.
