cebu... finally!


As far as i can remember, Bateng has been inviting me to have a vacation in Cebu since we were in highschool... but for so many reasons, it took me ages to finally visit the place. I originally planned to attend the Sinulog festival this year but due to budget constraint and mama's health condition, the plan did not pushed through. Thanks to the airlines' promo and thank God for mama's bp is now getting normal, hurray! i was there last weekend!
Friday night was meeting the Tambagos, a family friend. Kumustahan galore =D .. Bateng's siblings asking about my siblings.. Bateng's mom asking about mama.. "ilan na ang apo ni mama mo?.. saan nakatira si Estela?.. saan nagtratrabaho si Eugene.. bakit wala ka pang asawa?".. whew! questions kept on coming!
It was a sunny Saturday.. and we're off to Tambuli Beach Resort! The place was nice but too bad, the beach was loaded with seaweeds so we ended up swimming in the pool. Bateng's niece and nephew are better swimmers than the two of us! hehe such a shame.. But they can't float.. haha that's our advantage! =P. Then at night, we're supposed to have dinner with Romer, Cecille and Jhing but except for Jhing, the two were unreachable. So we ate dinner at Ate Portia's place, dessert at Ate Dory's and midnight snack at NASA's disco house. Gosh, i was so full that i could not move to dance =P.. We were with the Capitans.. hehe ang kukulit nila!
Sunday was Bateng's late grandma's birthday so the Barrigas came to Yoyon's place. Kainan ulit! =D .. Then after visiting her grandpa, we went shopping! Then we went to hear mass in Basilica de Sto. Nino, visited Magellan's cross and Cebu Cathedral. Then yey! Romer called.. so we ate dinner at Kaona Grill with Jhing. Thanks guys for the time.. and Romer for the treat! =D.. Of course, many thanks to Bateng's family for the hospitality and love =)
Now, who is Bateng?? She's my most precious bestfriend! That was the first time, we've met valentine's day together.. which made my trip to cebu very special =)

weird day!

Yesterday's events were just ordinary.. but for them to happen in a day??.. hmm that was odd!
1. a guy who had been asking me out announced that he got a date!.. which I hope he's not just being bitter after I finally gained my confidence to tell him that i would not go out with him if he's planning to date me just like the way he's dating the other girls he met in chatrooms.. oh, it was him who gave me that impression! =P but his honesty is appreciated =D
2. an ex-boyfriend popped with his out of the blue "hi-how are you?-what time you'll be home?" greetings.
3. another ex-boyfriend called and decided to accompany me to CV's Servant Leader meeting. it would defintely be a surprise to see us coming together, but he didn't mind. there's nothing wrong with it anyway =)

a bit of present, past and history in a day! kakaloka d ba? =P

thoughts to ponder

While on my way to the office, I came across to a page of my morning book talking about a speech teacher who once assigned her students to give a one-sentence speech, entitled: "What I Would Like for My Tombstone to Read". Answers were not enumerated, but indeed, it pushed me in doing my own. So here it goes:

Here lies Eden, a lady who tried her best to bring S.M.I.L.E. to every person who became part of her life.

S-ense of belonging

M-erry heart

I-nvolvement

L-ove of GOD and

E-ncouragement



So what's yours?... muni-muni.....

love this song...

You’ll Be Safe Here
[ Rivermaya ]

Nobody knows
Just why we’re here
Could it be fate
Or random circumstance
At the right place
At the right time
Two roads intertwine

And if the universe conspired
To meld our lives
To make us
Fuel and fire
Then know
Where ever you will be
So too shall I be

Chorus:

Close your eyes
Dry your tears
‘Coz when nothing seems clear
You’ll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Weary heart
You’ll be safe here

Remember how we laughed
Until we cried
At the most stupid things
Like we were so high
But love was all that we were on
We belong

And though the world would
Never understand
This unlikely union
And why it still stands
Someday we will be set free.
Pray and believe

Chorus:

When the light disappears
And when this world’s insincere
You’ll be safe here
When nobody hears you scream
I’ll scream with you
You’ll be safe here

Save your eyes
From your tears
When everything’s unclear
You’ll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Wounded heart

When the light disappears
And when this world’s insincere
You’ll be safe here

When nobody hears you scream
I’ll scream with you
You’ll be safe here

In my arms
Through the long cold night
Sleep tight
You’ll be safe here

When no one understands
I’ll believe
You’ll be safe,
You’ll be safe
You’ll be safe here
Put your heart in my hands
You’ll be safe here
