Threesome in Baguio

My friend Angelique may have said that I think Baguio has this healing power but as I come to think of it, the City of Pines now hurts and heals me.

It heals me because it's now my brother's home, and ever since I came here often, he made me also feel that I also belong to this place.
Its cold breeze is therapeutic. Baguio had been my place of escape whenever I almost drowning with emotions and stress in Manila. Baguio just calms my soul every time and helps me go back to reality, thinking and feeling that I get to begin my life all over again. It's also the place where I feel closest to God.

It's also the place where I always get that happy Christmas feel. Not just because of the chills or the lights around but also because it's the place where I can always be happy and bring the people that I love. Last time I brought my mom and dad. This time I got to tag Jicky and Lian along.

Being there with them is like having a glimpse of heaven. The place is filled with people creating cheerful noise surrounding us.

 We would never get tired of eating, walking and visiting places and living in Baguio.

But during those times when I am left alone, I realize that Baguio is where I always remember him and where I always wish I could go back with him . Pathetic as it may seem but I think I sometimes go there because it is the closest thing that I could get to feel him again, and make it seem that he still lives there. But I have to face the fact that right now, he just resides in my heart, and maybe fulfilling our dream then of going there together would just remain a dream.

But right now, I am more than happy to be able to bring my friends in Baguio and create memories that would never be forgotten.

I hope we get to go back and make more memories! I love you Lian and Jicky :)

I'm married and I just gave birth to a child.

Actually, that was just what the lady who sat across me in the jeepney yesterday thought so. 

You see, I was actually late for work but I still took a jeep on my way to work to save some.  And then there was this lady who I assume is as old as my mama. She was staring at me. I mean, REALLY STARING AT ME. She wasn't even blinking. I was getting bothered already (and was actually thinking, am I that pretty?LOL) when she spoke to me and said "Ikaw ba si Marilen?" (Is your name Marilen?)

Apparently, Marilen was her 17-year-old daughter-in-law who she said looks exactly like me as if we are twins. I was already smiling when she told me that she's also beautiful like me, then she had to mention that Marilen just gave birth a month ago. :)) 

I kept on laughing in my mind the whole time because she really made sure that I wasn't her daughter-in-law who was supposed to be in Pampanga with his son. :)) Oh, life's ways of turning your day from awful to awesome :)

I can't wait to be in Baguio on Saturday, to be back in the city of pines and hug my brother again. I bet I would even be happier because my good, good, bitchy friends Lian and Jicky are coming with me. 

Baguio heals my heart, every time. 

Now, I'm off to pack my things. See you in 2 days! <3 

Dream Come True, Drew!

Finally met the person who kept me awake during my Unang Hirit work shift! Our director, Sir Dex, finally introduced me to him as the girl he greeted on the show after I posted "Drew Arellano, I could stare at you all my life" which he apparently, was able to read! He said " Binubuking ka ng mga 'yan sa'kin!" I was happily embarrassed that he remembers me! I EVEN GOT A FREE HUG! 

Thank you sir Drew Arellano, you're such a down to earth celeb! Stay awesome and stay happy! I'll always be your biggest fan! 

Oh, how I love my job! 

Newsroom Halloween!

 My family never got to live in a village so I never experience any Halloween costume parades or trick or treating from cute little kids. Thanks to GMA News and Public Affairs, I finally got my dose of an awesome Halloween. :) 
I was so shocked to be greeted by skulls, pumpkins and spooky trees on my way to the newsroom. 
Then at 4 p.m., we went up to the 8th floor with Sir Ricky to check out the
 little sons and daughters of reporters and employees dressed in their spooky
 yet still cute costumes,  ready to do trick or treat and attend the party! 
Mam Jessica Soho started to give out chocolates and candies to start off the party!
Then kids came by the cubicles and desks to grabe some more treats!
 (Hey, the kid doesn't look happy with those donuts!LOL) 
This was my favorite kid for the day!  The whole time I was puzzled why she was dressed as Robin Hood then I figured out she was actually a he and his name is Mark Dylan! Oops, my bad! 
Of course, Sir Ricky, Ate Ali and Ate Xien, Doi and I also tried 
to blend in with the kids and the decorations on the event :)) 
Attack of the Adorable Kids!
 I guess they kept on wanting more candies! 
To infinity and beyond! 
This was my favorite Halloween costume worn
 by Pachino Gaston, Reporter Chino Gaston's son! :) 
We also had Superman and Superwoman!
This kid looks like Baby Josh! 
This is actually Maki Pulido's son. :) 
Cute zombies ready to eat the writers,
 I mean candies from us writers :)) 
This is the cutestestestest Chwistmas Twee I have ever seen!!! 
Look, nobody's working. LOL! 
We were just too excited to see the kids! 

And yes, the kids invaded the newsroom! 
And no one ever complained, especially me! 
I wish I was able to take home even just one kid! 
Too bad we didn't have enough treats for all of them!
So Halloween Santa Sir Mike Enriquez gave out more! 
After the fun spoiling of kids, I had some crazy photo shots with Stacy and Neil...
(Must not post all hahaha!)

Then had a Halloween hangout with NOQ friends!
I hope you also had a great Halloween! 
Here's a little delayed boo from my News on Q and GMA Family! 
Happy Halloween everyone! :)
