Is there a chance?

And I'll tear myself away.  So if that is what you need, there is nothing left to say but...

Or are we ashes and wine?

You Don't Know What You Got Til Its GONE

Its just so easy to take things for granted because we assume that it would never end, that it would never change, that it will stay and will never ever leave... But when it does, that's the only time you finally realized what you got and it's too late and the sad part is when you couldn't have it back.

Long Distance Relationship and Meeting Halfway

Yes I've gone through that and it didn't work out but I'm not blaming the distance or the difference in timezone. I believe it's just not meant to be.

Then there's this ultimate chick flick about LDRs and Drew Barrymore in it... YAY!

I wana watch this soo bad!!!

Who wants to be my date?!?!?!

It Maybe Winter Outside But In My Heart it's SPRING ;)

"I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn't know you had inside you. And it doesn't matter how  many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends... you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade."  -- Iris.

Humility 101

As a parent, it is your responsibility to mold your child's morals and positive attitude. I believe most of the things that Inah learned, she learned 'em from me.

Like HUMILITY for instance, this should be taught to a child as early as possible. This is to keep them from becoming self-centered and uninvolved in the lives of others around them.

The other day while I was at work, Inah messaged me on YM and told me about the good news...

Inah: Mommy, malapit na kuhaan namen ng report card.

Me: Kelan?

Inah: Basta sabihin ko na lang. Kailangan yung parents pumunta sa school sa pagkuha ng card namen lalo na kapag may 'honor' eh may HONOR ako eh.

Me: Really? WOW! Sinabi mo ng teacher mo yun?

Inah: HINDI. Di pa naman nag aannounce eh.

Me: Eh pano mo naman nasabing may 'honor' ka?


Oo nga naman... Teka SELF CONFIDENCE ata eto hindi Humility... HAHA.. Toink!

Simple Pleasures

I have been told more than once that I'm too easy to please. Most often than not, people's first impression of me is that I am too high maintenance; it surprised them to find out that I am in fact way too easy.

Here are some of the things that never fail to put a smile on my face... yes, my mini list of simple pleasures.

1. Morning Greetings - "Good Morning Sunshine!" or "Magandang Umaga Sinag ng Araw!"
2. A call, SMS or email from someone special :)
3. A Kiss, a HUG or BOTH
4. Pringles chips in Cheese flavor dipped in Coke
5. Chocolates, Cakes or Caramel Macchiato
6. Children's laughing. Inah's hirits.
7. Someone telling me "You're a STAR, Amie!" "PLEASE" "THANK YOU" or "You always say the right words" followed by a smile. Ahhh...
8. LAUGHING - me laughing at a joke or someone's laughing at my joke.
9. Hearing my favorite song on the radio or a song that reminded me of someone, some place, something.
10. I MISS YOU from someone special.

All these and more... They are simply DIVINE. Simple and true and could wash away my blues.

The other day while getting my usual warm Caramel Macchiato for breakie at one of my favorite coffee shops. I was so surprised that the barrista spelled my name correctly!♥ Silly I know, but for someone that even some of her friends couldn't spell her name right and always getting a cup for AIMEE, AMY or IMEE, this is FANTASTIC! Made me smile for sure.

FINALLY, my very own Double Shot Caramel Macchiato with my right name on it!!! Simply DELIGHTFUL!

Did I also mention that the barrista was a cutey?  Now thats treat? LOL.  Still wondering if I met him before or what not. But nonetheless, he started my day beautifully. The simple things could do wonders.  Thank you.

What about you, what are your simple pleasures? ♥
