City of Pines

Baguio City... how I am missing this place! 

Two years ago, it's my first time to visit the City of Pines or which they called "The Summer Capital of the Philippines". I instantly fell in love with the place. I don't know how to explain the feeling. It's like you found your long-lost soul mate and met him/her for the first time. I was fascinated with its surroundings, mountains, the smell of pine trees and everything about it. 

Hindi ko alam kung bakit bigla kong nami-miss ang Baguio. Para siyang comfort food ko kasi kapag nalulungkot ako, iisipin ko lang ang lugar na ito, nawawala lahat ang problema at hinanakit ko sa buhay.  Ever since I set foot on this land in the Cordillera Mountains, Baguio is my life therapy. Naiwan nga ang puso ko doon noong umalis na kami. Sabihin mang OA pero umiyak ako that time. Kulang na lang eh magpaiwan ako. :) 

Just like now, napapangiti na naman ako... hahaha! Basta, I love Baguio so much! How I wish this year, makabalik uli sa lugar na iyon. Hayssst...

Missin' Lolo Jess...

Happy birthday, Lolo Jess (+)! We know that you are already at peace with our Lord. You will always be remembered and loved by your family forever. Love you and miss you so much!

Hello, 2012!

Let this be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you've always wanted to do but couldn't find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you don't think you can keep. Walk tall and smile more. You'll look ten years younger. Don't be afraid to say, 'I love you'. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world.

As we bid adieu to 2011, we should bid adieu to the loads of tensions that we carry in our head. Whenever life closes one door that we thought was ideal, it opens another one that is even better – just that we realize it a bit later. Offload the words ‘mistakes’ from your life and replace it with ‘opportunities’ – learn from day to day things in life but ensure you are always progressing. Wishing 2012 opens million such doors for you. 

Happy New Year, everyone! ♥
