You only get one best friend in life. Or not.
So now I remember why this post sat in draft and I never gotten to publishing it. Not because I’m not a good person to not have a bestfriend, but what does having a bestfriend even mean?
Is it growing up closely with someone? Is it having a strong bond with a person who understands you well and have been there for you all this time and vice versa?
I’m not sure. For me, he/she just gets me, in most ways, if not all.
You see, the thing is, you surely love your bestfriend, right? I do love my friends. And I only have a few of them and I kinda find it extremely hard to choose the best friend from a pool of best friends. I don’t know where I am going with this post anymore yada yada haha.
Here’s a photo of me and my best friend since high school.
If I wrote this several years ago, my perfect first date would look like this:
“I’d be asked repeatedly to watch Iron Man few days before the date and I’d confirm on the morning of the day itself. I’d probably pass for him picking me up on my place. I’d rather meet him in the movie house where we’d buy tickets together. He’d be early as expected so he could buy the tickets beforehand, so when I arrive and head towards the ticket booth, he’ll have a chance to grab my wrist or my hand to stop me. He’d buy a big bucket of popcorn and while watching the movie, and he would grab for popcorn almost the same time I pull out my hands from the bucket, so our hands would swiftly brush each other. After the movie we’d drop by Timezone and I’d celebrate beating him over a couple of basketball games. And after I finished shooting rings after rings, he’d be standing really close to me and he’d push a few of stray hairs on my face.”
And cut. Fade to black.
Because I am writing this now, my real perfect date would either be
1. If a guy could bring me to tryout a cool gym box, or any similar workout places/activities. Like rowing or boxing or yoga or crossfit. Anything. Because that’s not just cool but super cool. Or
2. If a guy can hitch in one of my trips with my travel buddies. Because there is no other surer way to know if you like someone than having to travel with them.
Fried prawns with oatmeal, siao long bao, pork and shrimp siomai and taiwanese sausage fried rice. And no, I wasn’t able to take photos of all of those.
Fried prawns with oatmeal
This was from Lugang in SM Aura. I insisted to try the place because I have been hearing good feedback but I had a really disappointing visit.
On another note, I was watching a basketball game earlier and there was chance that the game might get default and I was like, no it can’t be a default because I’m excited to eat junk food while watching. I know. That’s why you go to gyms and watch sports – to eat junk food.
I can’t even start.
This is probably the most vain way you could start blogging again.
But anyway, here is it!
From my recent trip to Cambodia, in one of the *many* temples in Siem Reap.
I wish I could tell you my day was about raiding tombs and firing four guns at once. But no, t’was consisted of mundane string of events like visiting a physician, eating alone at Pepper Lunch, and unbelievably wasting time and energy over unbelievably stupid games on iPhone.

And we haven’t talked for ages. Probably because I have disappointed him in many ways possible. I might have even broke his heart.
But I miss him. So much. And I wish I can patch things up with him, and be friends again. I’m hoping the heavens would hear me.
It’s a timeless question women have asked since time immemorial: what’s the reason why he cheated? Then these follow: what could have I done to have prevented it? what went wrong? was it my own fault?
Damn NO it’s not your friggin fault. There might be an extensive list why some men (if not most) cheat – maybe they felt emotional disconnection with their partners, or maybe they’re not satisfied with their current relationships, or maybe they’re just too coward to end the current relationship that they’d resort to cheating, or maybe they just couldn’t help it. Maybe there’s psychology behind the act, or just a plain evolutionary impulse. The list goes on and on and on. I’m not exactly sure. But here’s the sure thing: there is no effin’ valid reason to cheat. Not once, and not repeatedly. Continue reading
I was rummaging through the sent folder of an old email account when I saw this little note. It was sent from my iTouch, sometime in 2010. I just thought to share it. How timeless some things can be.
Entirely unrelated photo.
If there’s one learning in life that I would have to make my favorite, it’s that everything in life moves on: you shift careers, you change boyfriends, you transfer office location, you move in to your new apartment, and suddenly… you’re a vegetarian.
But with this valuable lesson comes a very wise action: while everything around you is constantly changing and moving, but you remain stubborn to resent change from within, all the changing and moving is useless because you’re setting up yourself for more of the same things. Agree? Agree.
SPLURGE. Definitely. Because for me, I can go about a makeup-less day with only a thin sheet of lipstick on and still feel good about how I look. And yes, I do believe that a lipstick or a lip stain is one of the key makeup pieces that a girl should not be without. Also, when I am totally not in the mood to put anything on my face, a lipstick does the quick fix to avoid looking pale.
