a christmas song like no other

everyone who knows me well, knows that Christmas songs don't actually give me the fuzzies.

i don't like them. except for a few that bring childhood memories when my dad would play tagalog songs early in the morning in time for the simbang gabi.

other songs i could care less.

this song, however, i find nice. really nice.
it's short, hopeful, meaningful and direct in a very catchy and not so christmassy melody. enjoy!

an open letter to love

dear love,

i miss you.

really, i do. it's been a long time since i've had you. don't you think it's about time you come to my life again?

i miss the cheesiness, the conversations, the joy and the complications you bring.

really. all the good and the bad that comes with having you in my life pales in comparison to not having you in it.

i have so much of you to give. more than enough to go around family and friends. i have plenty.

anyway, today is my birthday. i just thought i'd write you so you won't forget about me.
i'm not losing hope.  not just yet.

love, me :)

because it's my birthday

i got to wear a cute hat in the happiest place on earth :)

Day 1 : Favorite Food

in all the places i've been to, no matter how much i loved and gushed over how good the food is, i always find myself craving for my mom's adobo.

zoom in on gratitude: 30 day photo challenge

so i got inspired by my dear friend sammy to embark on a 30day photo challenge.
what better way to end the year than a month filled with gratitude in time for the coming year :)

wish me luck!
