My Duterte Story βœ

Did I ever had an encounter with him? No. Have I ever been in any events of him? No. But I have a number of encounters on people who believes in his leadership.

Maka teary eyed experience. For once in my life I had a chance to be in a historic gathering of Filipinos. Whatever happens, I know that someday I will look back and proudly say I did something for my country. – Julie Ann Escudero, blogger ✍

Our President-Duterte. This man on this stage I am facing makes my heart skip a beat. It is like falling in love and saving all my hope for a better – BEST COUNTRY. – Jamielou Valderrama πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ

Even my beau is so funny that if he had the chance to, he kept on singing that “Si Duterte yeah yeahh” sing-sung tune (i forgot who’s the artist though).πŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸŽ§

Every people will yield its crop of candidates and when conversation turns into politics and politicians, there’s a certain fascination in analyzing leaders.πŸ—―πŸ’¬

Look into the soul and personal experiences of a leader and you will find a good leader.πŸ‘πŸ»He is someone who knows the cruelty of life and the clamor of people to change it.πŸ’ͺ People believe on the things he believes in and work for, and the ways he go about making decisions that can influence our lives. There are still a few who come close to the leadership ideas and many believe that he’s one of the few.πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

So, who is Digong? He possess a combination of charisma and integrity, accountability and makes a sound decision based on what would be best for the greatest number of people. Has statemanship- he stand up for what is right.☝🏼️

I do not care if I burn in hell for as long as the people I serve live in paradise. -Rody Duterte

We have full of aspiring leaders, but few lives up to what our country needs.

You are given a politician with only hardwork, good leadership and results to show. So vote for him, or don’t vote for him. But I suggest you do.

Think again.πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­

No Ordinary Love

Thinking back to when you first met someone and how you were completely unaware of just how much they would mean to you. It’s a beautiful thing.πŸ“πŸ’­

When I was young, I’ve always had my values or somehow my personality in liking a guy.πŸ‘πŸ» Even if how I so much like someone, I will never ever find a way to initiate the first move.πŸ™…πŸ» Conservative, Dalagang-Filipina, whatever you call it, but it’s just that I am always guarded by my feelings, with my emotions.βœ‹πŸΌ

No strings attached.☝🏼 Single at a young age means freedom and trying to decipher what to do with your life and who you want to be in your life.πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ But when you are single for so long and people are asking why, even if its okay to you somehow bothers you.πŸ€” What is wrong with being single? Am I really ought to have someone right now?😳 But basically, I don’t mind what other people say.πŸ’πŸ» Some would say that I should not also wait for someone to come along but I also need to make a move. Eh? Well, I just don’t believe in learning to like/love someone in the long run (develop) because if it’s really there, if the “thing” is there then it is. If the interest is present the first time you meet him, then it will follow.β˜„πŸ’₯ Every girl deserves a guy who looks at her everyday like its the first time he saw her.😍

It is for this reason that I feel compelled to share my experience in my singlehood. When everbody is expecting you to be with someone, when everyone is so curious why I am not yet into a relationship, when everyone at some point make issues and intrigues over you.πŸ™„

Then that someone came along.πŸ’˜ But apparently too vague, mysterious and hard to comprehend.πŸ˜‘ After a few months of casually textingπŸ“±and chattingπŸ–₯ each other, for some misunderstood petty reason, just when you were about to realize you may have real feelings for him, I find myself in vain.. and hanging. What did I do wrong?β‰οΈπŸ™‡πŸΌ

You can’t make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved.πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ The rest is up to the person to realize your worth.πŸ’ͺ So I moved on.πŸ‘£ Walking away from us, walking away from him, walking away from nothing, because he was never mine to lose. Days turned to weeks, to months, to years of living life at its best.πŸ’ƒπŸ»

Just when I’m about to move on, to genuinely enjoy on my own and getting to know another person, you are there. Here we go again. 

An ancient Chinese Proverb says: An invisible RED THREAD connects those who are destined to meet. Regardless of the time, the place or the circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.πŸ“Ώ

I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate but definitely makes me believe into something. And sometimes, you have to stop thinking so much and just go where your heart takes you.πŸ’•

They say that nothing last forever but if you are a firm believer that it will last forever, love lives on even after its gone.πŸ™

It was a million tiny little things that when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together.. and I knew it.πŸ’‘

Smiles turn into laughs, and laughs turn into somethings – and before you know it, you’ll find yourself like “really?”πŸ‘« A lot can happen and sometimes you feel everything and nothing all at once. Life comes without guarantees but you can expect that smiling will brighten your face, laughing will enhance your eyes and falling in love will change your life.❀️

We enter into a relationship because of chemistry, but we should stay in a relationship because it feeds our soul.πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

As for me, we still have a longer way to go and its this point in our journey where we can pause and realize how we have been so lucky.😊☺️

Out of the doubt that fills my mind, I somehow find HE AND I COLLIDE.πŸ’™

  

Corporate Party: Through the Years

We all have sorts of styles to help us look and feel at our best. πŸ‘—In our corporate christmas party, we always have our theme to follow and its up to us how will we do it in our own fashionable way. πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ

As for me, I always go for what comforts me and of course what makes bagay.😬 I don’t usually bother myself with what am I going to wear πŸ’πŸ»because I just know what I want. I prefer to be comfortable but with a touch of styleπŸ‘Œ Comfort and ease are my keys when getting dressed, which means I like wearing clothes that don’t limit my abilities to run when in rushπŸ’ƒπŸ», to roam around to other tablesπŸ‘£, to bend down when I have something to getπŸ‘‡πŸΌ, and other stuffs I have to do when I’m there. I had read somewhere in which I totally agreeπŸ“ƒ, it’s just one step trick to a perfect christmas party get-up, and that is to go “Fake Fancy”, the art of looking dressed up when in fact you are super comfortable. πŸ‘πŸ»

So how I ace the “fake fancy” thing through the years? Lemme share it. (But you have to find me in my posted pic. lol!)πŸ˜‰

  • 2008 Hawaiian Christmas Party  For this party, since I’m young and less likely to care what do I really want, I choose to wear it in a white spaghetti strap top, blue and white floral skirt, and a flip flops.🌾🌻 Oh diba, so hawaiian na.πŸ˜‚ Okay next!πŸ˜›
  • 2009 CSD Cosplay Christmas Party Head-To-Toe Black. ⚫️ I’m in a gothic fashion here.πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ A black button down dress, black knee-sock and black sneakers, ring a bell for the skater girl Avril?β›Έ Without looking it one-dimensional and boring, I had my hair brush-up and make it in long curly locks and had a smokey eyes in a black and blue eyeshadow. Rock on!😎
  • 2010 CSD Masquerade Christmas Party  Go with the flow. This is something that is unplanned get-up. I can’t think of any dress to wear.πŸ™†πŸ» I was just roaming around at Gaisano Ilustre and I saw this chic, elegant purple dress.πŸ‘— So I just bought it and from there, wore it in the party.To match my dress, I also paired it in a violet shaded mask and had a pony-tailed hair. And oh, I was a participant here in christmas choral group in which we won (well, something to brag about😊☺️). Smile girls!πŸ“·πŸ“Έ
  • 2011 CSD Fashionista Christmas Party The gossip girl. I was inspired with one of the gossip girls style, Leighton MeesterπŸ‘ΈπŸΌ. It started with a headband. Okay not really, but what I like with her outfits as Blair Waldorf aside wearing a preppy headband, is an outfit that’s sweet without being obnoxious, prim and soo adorableπŸ‘’πŸ‘ πŸŽ’. So for my GG fash moment: a preppy black and gold twine-like headband, white inner top covered in a gray suit-like casual blazer, gray balloon skirt, platform sky-high heelsπŸ‘ , and black hand bagπŸ‘›. Posh!
  • 2012 CSD Christmas Party (I think its a Wig Party? I forgot na!πŸ˜‚)    Korean-look? I dunno. Liking the idea to try wearing pumpsπŸ‘  in shorts, to look more casual and simplier since having a wig is quite a statement in an outfit. What I have is a silk gray long sleeves, mustard cotton shorts and skin-tonned pumpsπŸ‘ . Just a tip: The type and height of heels, bare legs in shorts can look provocative so make the rest of your outfit a little more conservative (longer sleeves or looser fitting tops).πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‰
  • 2013 (A Party That Was Supposed to be…)  This would have been worn in a Vintage Themed Party.😍 Classic and Elegant are the words that best describe this outfit.😱 Looking long, lean and luxurious in a black and white jumpsuit. I so love it but for some reasons, I did not bought it yet because its too early and decided to be back to get it a week after our party. But a saddened calamity happened when Typhoon Yolanda struck in the Philippines.πŸ˜” To show emphaty and solidarity, the company decided not to have a party and extend help through donations to the victims.πŸ™
  • 2014 Merry Pinnacle Christmas: A Night of Music & Glamour It’s a semi-formal themed party. So I chose a simple black mini dress.πŸ‘—It’s a combination of a silk in the inside and a sheer on the outside fabric as its design with a V-neckline. Coco Chanel perhaps said it best: “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. Its beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ                        Well, it’s a Lily Collins inspired look as well and I do it all by myself (proud!). “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.πŸ‘—” -Karl Lagerfeld

Now for 2015, its a Neon Themed Christmas Party. I already had in my mind of what will I wear. What would it be?πŸ€” Soon.πŸ™ŠπŸ˜‰

I am not the authority on fashion.πŸ™…πŸ» I think it is your attitude, your confidence, etc. will totally nail what looks will you have.πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ You go girl!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Mati Escapade πŸ‘­πŸŠπŸŒž May 9, 2012

I could say that this is my legit if not the first travel I had been with my bunch of freak but true friends.😁 We had our rented van🚎, and off to travel early in the morningπŸ™†πŸ». We had our first stop in Masao but we didn’t get to enjoy the place and off we go at Dahican. We had our overnight stay there in a tent⛺️.

The following day we had our swimming time🏊 and surfing lessonsπŸ„. Unfortunately I didn’t engage to learn surfing because I had my fears in water (the perks of not a swimmer) so I just had my moment standing in a surf board with friends holding the edges.πŸ˜‚πŸ™Š

We also got the chance to meet new people especially those surf trainers πŸ„. They were unbelievably good and can manage to go through the big waves🌊 which the place is known for. It was one unforgettable experience also since I had my cramps and my almost but not quite drowning moment.😱 Thanks to those friends swimmer who manage to help the needy one (that’s me!😁).

Edit

Good morning Dahican!πŸŒžπŸ™†πŸ»

Of course I will not leave the place without having a pic of the rising sun. I surely be back there not any time soon but definitely I will.πŸ‘πŸ»β˜ΊοΈ
