What a girl wants

Stole this from Rica :P

"What I want is to be needed.
What I need is to be indispensable to somebody.
Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention.
Somebody addicted to me.
A mutual addiction."

-- Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Life begins at 26

I rang in my 26th year with family and dear friends at a birthday party thrown for me by Jay at his place.

Simple and steady. Good food, a labor of love by "Chef" Jay. My favorite Asti Martini, courtesy of Fif. And great company, thanks to everyone who came.

I know I am loved by the people I love. For this, I am grateful.

Birthday kiss from my favorite chef.

Good friends, old and new, all dear.

Laughing Alfonso, little darling of my heart!

To add to this wonderful celebration, like ice cream with a cherry on top, I got the best birthday gift ever!


So many things to be thankful for. Life is just some kind of wonderful. :)

I'd like to run away
From you
But if you didn't come
and find me...
I would die

On the way to office this morning, I snapped out of my reverie when the radio started playing Buhat.

Imagine that. Buhat! My goodness, I had not heard that song in so long. Not since my Harana days, hahaha. And I didn’t really think that it would ever be played on the airwaves, not on the FM stations anyway.. :P


Bawat buhay ay may kasaysayan

Tulad ng pinangyarihan
Nang tayo'y magtanaw
Takot lamang ay di mo pakinggan
Ngunit ang katotohanan
Kita'y minamahal

Buhat ng kita'y masilayan

Buhat ng mapanagimpan
Laging hinahanap at inaasam
Bilin ay damhin yaring pagmamahal

At magbuhat ng makita ka lamang
Bawat masdan ko'y kariktan
Dulot ay sadyang kaligayahan
Na nagbuhat sa iyo buhay n'yaring buhay

It’s such a lovely song. Sometimes I forget how many beautiful Tagalog love songs we have.
