Thank you to my sister for her treat last weekend! This “family staycation” is just so perfect for this very hot summer. And by the way, last weekend was a milestone for me… I finally learned how to swim. Haha. Well, this just proves that it’s never too late to learn new things.

A little late post. Last Saturday, I am so happy to be able to find some available seats in the newly opened cinema in Bonifacio High Street. They have the first 4D cinema here in the Philippines. The cinemas were opened last April 30, 2014, the same date of the showing date of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and I really wanted to try the 4D cinema, with my favorite superhero being shown on the screen. I think it was okay though all the features of a 4D cinema cannot be experienced in TASM 2. Hopefully there will be a movie soon that will be perfect for a 4D experience.

Last Saturday, I strolled around the metro with my friend to look for some mother’s day ideas. I know mom is a simple person but I still want to make it extra special for her. Before heading home, I attended the anticipated mass in Greenbelt Chapel, one of my favorite places to attend mass whenever I am alone. Fr. Jun Sescon gave a heartfelt homily, about appreciation of our mothers. It made me remember and appreciate more all the things my mom had done for us. I feel blessed for having my mom and all I want is to spend more years with her and to make her proud and feel loved. Happy Mom’s Day to all moms! :)

Not actually in my plans for today though I’m still happy with the result of my obsession for blue and red combination. – at Glorietta Activity Center

It’s been a long time since the last time I tried to enjoy almost the whole day alone. I went to the mall to do a little shopping, eat and watch a movie alone. Of course, I watched The Amazing Spiderman 2 for the second time. The day was more of taking a day to treat myself and taking some time to reflect about some things. What I want to share right now is about happiness. For the past few days, I’ve been thinking about happiness. We have different standards of happiness. We know within ourselves what can make us happy, not just by what others tell us. Sometimes we get happiness from the simple things. Some might not understand why those things make us happy, but what’s important is that they make us happy, without hurting anyone. Let us not solely depend our happiness to others… Just like The Amazing Spiderman 2, some might say that it’s a crap, but what’s important to me is that I enjoyed and I loved the movie. ☺

Two of my weaknesses are I am easily convinced by sales talk and I find it hard to say no that’s why I end up getting something “unplanned”. Here is another proof.

I seldom post photos of things I buy… Well I didn’t buy the clothes in this picture. I think it is okay to post this to say a huge thank you to Penshoppe for letting me experience my first ever “shopping spree” after winning in their previous raffle. Thanks also to the very accomodating people of Penshoppe in Glorietta. I hope this will not be the last. :)

This weekend, I preferred to stay home to rest and get some sleep. I even didn’t join our company outing. Maybe I just don’t like joining company outings. Anyway, I also got some time to think about things, especially my career. It’s been a long time since I tried to look for other opportunities. There was a time also when I turned down an opportunity… Which is actually a better opportunity. Maybe it is just really hard to get out of our comfort zones. But how can we grow? Maybe “growth” is the keyword right now. Honestly, there are times when I feel pressured when we talk about others lives and I just can’t keep comparing myself to them (aside from other people comparinh myself to others). Maybe it is also true that we don’t have to compare ourselves to others. I admit that I mature late compared to others with the same age bracket as mine. And it is only now when I am starting to think about many things. And right now, here I am again ready to take chances. I know it won’t be easy but I think it’s worth taking. I hope that the passion won’t die and that I will never lose hope even if I’ll meet failures along the way.

I want to share these sweet memories now that I am another year older (and now that I am reviving my blog “Silent Thoughts Playing”). Thanks again to everyone who remembered. :)

I didn’t feel bad that my birthday this year falls on a Good Friday. Rather, I consider it as a blessing. As years pass by, my perspective about birthday is changing… It’s like a new beginning… Another chance to correct my mistakes and to become better. It’s a blessing. Maybe some of us are glad that Facebook is there to remind us of our friends’ birthdays, but maybe we’ll miss the old days when our friends remember our birthdays because they know it and when our birthday greetings has a personal touch.

It was a day of appreciation… Appreciation for all who remembered, and made me feel happy and special. I realized that like a child, I still have simple joys in life… Some things that money can’t buy.

And so, as I start a new year in my life, I just wish for everything to be good and hopefully better for me and for everyone I love.

I started reviving my blog again last October…

I started reviving my blog again last October 2013. So far, it went good. I was able to post regularly as much as I could for 5 months. I got disappointed when I was not able to post any entry last month. What are some of the probable causes?

1. Busy Schedule – Well, it’s not that I don’t have any spare time. Maybe I just prefer to get some rest or do some chores outside work.
2. Lazy to think of a blog post title – I am guilty of this.
3. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram – Because of the different social media apps, sharing thoughts are now easier and faster, than blogging.

But the thing is, despite of the reasons above, I still want to keep a blog and adjust to the changes brought by technology.
