But if there’s any consolation, it’s probably that I’ve learned to entertain my emotions less. Feelings, they just come and it’s not like you can decide them away, but what you do about them is a choice.
Wai Ying restaurant review
So together with three of my longest-time friends, I braved the busy streets of Binondo, for once not minding people traffic and the seemingly futile search for restaurants with empty tables. We actually enjoyed all the fuss that I’d normally come to curse. We ended up walking all the way to Sta Cruz (near Hope Christian School), when the farthest we’d usually go was La Mien’s street. We were bent on having good food that afternoon, and between Wai Ying and other names in the area, the former was the clear winner for our feasting-ready appetites.
It’s a little over 3 A.M. and as much as I would like to say I don’t know why I’m still wide awake, the fact of the matter is I do. I’ve come down with a flu and when I come down with anything (which very rarely happens), the body never manages to adapt. I would stay conscious until it’s too late to sleep, throwing but I’m tired can You just send a heavenly knockout for me please tantrums all through the night. But I am young and this is something I can take.
I am a sucker for good quotes, and if you follow me on Twitter that’s a fact you’ve (probably) already started to resent. (Well…unless you consume the same pop culture things that I do.) More than reviews, one good way to get me to check out a movie/book/show is to draw out a really convincing line from it. And it doesn’t even have to be grandiose or profound, just something I can believe. Keeping me on it is another thing - naturally, other elements would factor in.
Art Fair Philippines event
I’m not even gonna try to pretend to have understood half of the things I saw at Art Fair Philippines 2014. Going from piece to piece, all I could think was ooh pretty, can I have this in my room? (Although if I were to steal something, it wouldn’t be any of the stuff on display…heck, it wouldn’t even be a something but a someone. Hihi.)
My Father taught me…
That love isn’t “At least I know who I love.”
That love isn’t “I love you but I love her more now.”
That love is “I love you”. No more, no less.
