It is never okay to let your boyfriend/partner/husband to cheat on you just because.. well, theyre men.

No.

You should not be proud that you always forgive them.

That you let them to their nth girlfriend because they are a good provider or good father.

That you let them because “magsasawa din yan”

And just because the society forgives them.

No.

Please.

May pinahanap na tax number si Wewel na sinend ko sa kanya 2 years ago sa text.

So nag-backread ako ng mga messages namin sa isa’t isa at natuklasan ko paano kami kapos na kapos dati sa pera.

Mga 5 dollars, 20 dollars sobrang kapit talaga kami. Yung nale-late kami ng bayad sa rent, bills at pati tuition.

Yung sa pagkain, sooobrang tipid na tipid at bonggang bonggang treat na sa sarili ang kumain sa Hungry Jacks ng tig-6 dollars na meal.

Bawat sentimo mahalaga, bawat sentimo bilang naming dalawa.

Hanggang sa nakaipon kami ng tuition ko para sa pinag-aaralan ko ngayon.

Ang galing, sobrang God really provided. Di ko alam pano kami nakaipon.

Pero ngayong full time student ako at walang trabaho for a month at nasa iba pang state, balik kami ni Wewel ulit sa medj kapos moments.

Sana, sana talaga, maging okay lahat. Sana talaga payagan ng Diyos na magtagumpay kami.

Para next time, si Wewel naman ang ittreat ko ng bongga dahil sa dami ng naitulong nya sa akin.

Kung tutuusin di naman nya kelangang kapusin, at di naman nya kelangang magtiis. Pero nag-sacrifice sya para sa akin at para sa mga pangarap ko.

Sooobrang bait na kapatid. Selfless.

So, pagbabalik tanaw post pala ito plus bunso appreciation post.

Thank you sa lahat, Wewel. Yaan mo, sana makabawi din someday si Ate.

Love you!

So I’ve been living in a shared house with my cousins at a small, quiet suburb in Queensland for almost 2 years.

On this day, I’m staying at an old house in a suburb in Victoria for a month with 1 Filipino and atleast 10 Indian ladies.

2nd week of May, I will be sharing a room with my Filipino roomie in a small unit in a different suburb here in Victoria hosted by an AirBNB couple.

After that, I’ll be back in Queensland for 2 weeks.

And then, I will fly to South Australia and stay there for a month with 4 other Pinay, 3 of whom I haven’t met yet. We booked that apartment via AirBNB as well.

My room mate and I are in our phone since mid day looking for accommodations. Grabi. Stress.

So yeah, my introvert self is screaming to stay put. Hahaha.

Tapos may plans pa sa bahay na lumipat.

Tapos ang dami ko pang problems.

Hehehe.

Oh well.

Life.

I can’t remember the last time I had a rest day. Maybe last couple of weeks? Or maybe last month?

Tapos ngayon may pasok din ako, gumising ako right on time. I went to the bathroom, had a pee and stripped to take a shower.

And then I realised, it is raining and my body aches a little.

A dressed up again, went back to bed and messaged my manager that I can’t go to work.

I’m a bit desperate for extra cash right now since I cannot work for 9 to 12 weeks because of my studies. But right now, I am desperate to take a rest and enjoy the bed weather brought by the rain.

Siguro di naman masama na palagpasin ko yung isang araw na sweldo para makapagpahinga naman ako di ba?

Edi nakakaloka na nagustuhan ko amg Kpop at Jpop. Haha. Dont judge me. 🤣

I’ve been listening and reading Korean songs lately and I got my favorites na. Hahaha.

I stumbled upon this one song that strikes home.

Here’s some of the lyrics:

Don’t compare me, don’t care about me, who says that’s the right way?

There is no right way, the way that I chose is my way

Don’t be jealous of your friend’s freedom

The order is just a bit different

I’ll just shed one glass worth of tears

I’ll endure through with grudgeless grumbles

Until that day comes.

I tend to compare my life to my batchmates, friends and acquintances.

Mayaman na sya.

May kotse na si ano.

May bahay na si ganyan.

Kinasal sya.

Buntis si ganun.

May cute na cute na baby si ganire.

Natravel na ni ano yung kalahati ng mundo.

Sobrang happy sa life ni ganito.

Samantalang ako,

Di mayaman.

Walang kotse.

Walang bahay.

Walang jowa.

Walang lablayp.

Walang kasal.

Walang cute na cute na baby (pero may mga cute na cute na pamangkin, hehe)

Di makapagtravel.

At well, masaya naman ako.

In all fair sa akin, masaya naman ako.

Nalayo na ako sa kanta. Haha.

Sabi nga kanta, wag mo akong kumpara. Walang tamang daan, kung anong daan ang tinatahak ko, iyon ang tamang daan.

There is no right way to success or happiness. It is the way that you’ve paved is the right way.

Maybe your friend will be successful with their career and you are not. But then, you’ve got a family of your own and she doesnt have any.

Your friend has a successful business and you don’t have but you’ve travelled half the world and she doesn’t have a time to spare to travel.

Your success will be different from someone else’s success.

There is no template nor a right timeline for our life.

Isa pa yang timeline na yan.

Sa society natin kailangan sa early 20s mo nagbi-build ka na ng career, pwede pa palipat-lipat ng trabaho, bata pa naman.

Mid-20s dapat magsettle ka na sa career at company na napili mo.

Late 20s may ipon ka na, may investments at stable na ang career.

30s di ka na nageeksperemento sa trabaho mo, dapat tenured ka na at bongga na si career.

Sa lovelife naman,

Sa early 20s bawal pa mag-asawa, masyado pa bata.

Mid 20s pwede na mag-asawa pero wag muna daw kasi di pa daw nakakatulong sa family.

Late 20s kailangan ng mag-asawa, by this time kailangan magka-baby ka na daw.

30s, bakeeeeet wala ka pa ding asawa?

Hahaha.

Anyways, di din ako naniniwala sa perfect life timeline.

O baka dahil messed up lang ang life timeline ko kaya di ako naniniwala? Hehe.

Hindi porke’t paiba-iba ng trabaho hanggang late 20s to 30s eh di na tama ang tinatahak mong daan, baka di mo pa lang natatagpuan yung daan para sayo.

Hindi porke’t wala pang asawa ay bigo ka na sa buhay mo. Baka di lang talaga para sayo ang pag-aasawa.

Ang society ang nagppressure sa atin (maliban kila tito at tita sa reunion, hehe) na dapat sa ganyang edad ay nasa ganyan ka ng kalagayan. Kaya tayo naman nappressure ng bongga. Basta mga pre, wag pa-pressure.

Chill.

Relax.

Live in your own pace.

Love the life you have.

Don’t be afraid to stop once in a while.

Don’t be pressured to do what others are doing.

Live.

Love.

Laugh.

Di ko alam saan patungo tong blog na to. Basta ang point ko lang naman, ok naman ang mga Kpop at Jpop songs, basta babasahin ang translation. Hahahaha.

I rode an uber last Sunday and the driver was a 72-year old lovely, lovely Aussie bloke.

He has 3 jobs — 1 is the uber, a regular 4-day a week job and he is also an announcer/DJ in a local radio station.

I told him why he just can’t relax at home and take it easy since he is not that young anymore, but he said that he can take all the rest he wants when he dies and until his body allows him to move and work, he will not stop.

I also asked him if he ever had a whole day off and he said he doesnt have any. He said he just have one half day off every week. And thats it.

It is crazy how he can keep up with all his schedule and can still be bubbly and full of life.

Aaaand here I am sometimes complaining how tired I am. And how tired my body and bones are.

Then I realised that we really should be grateful for all the strength and youth we still have til now.

We should be grateful that we can still work, can still walk straight and we can still dream and pursue it.

So the hashtags for today should be #grateful #unlimitedsleepwhenwedie #workhard #inspired
