You can't have it all

When the world turns its back on you,
You turn your back on the world!

Hello world! Look who's back from defeat! Lol.

As blogged here, I was able to catch the UST-ADMU second "Do or Die" game yesterday in Araneta, with the best seats I ever had in the best game this whole UAAP season! Sobrang intense ng laban, and kung akala niyo super adik nako nito, wala pa to from the last years! Tamed fan na ako now, wasn't able to watch all the games live (dati walang mintis ang pag watch and papicture ko hehe!)...pero affected parin ako in the end. Still, the Tigers made me sooo proud to be a Thomasian, they put up a GREAT fight with the sobrang galing na Eagles. Sabi nga ng nakatabi kong daddy, "It wasn't a walk in the park", nuks! Congrats Ateneo Blue Eagles!

Thank you Pax for the photos, and Cheyser for the camera!

Anyway, photos in this post were taken during our second day in Tagaytay for the Fitflop event last weekend! I miss Sonya's Garden and bonding with my blog friends in this 1-hour-away sanctuary! Gustung gusto ko na ikwento ang happenings during that trip, but medyo nabubusy na sa business. Watching the game yesterday was my "break" from bending wires after days of creating pieces for you. I had a brand client na nagpa rush ng 50 small wire crowns, and I made it in one night--I ended up with ugly nails, calloused palms, and shaky hands! But I love what I do, it's tiring but I've never felt sooo fulfilled!


And although yesterday's supposed fun "break" from work ended with me losing some important things (just want to say na hindi lang sa game ako natalo, sorry vague talking haha)... I am proud that my psyching and envisioning of a stable self from few months back made me in full control of my emotions (I think). I am disappointed, but I (re)learned that you can't please everyone. 

Maybe you CAN have it all. But as kumareng Oprah said, You just can't have it all at one time.


  1. Youre so pretty!! Bagay na bagay yung curls =)


  2. Anaaaaa!!! I know I will sound like a Mom, pero you've really turned into a lady! So girly and pretty! Dalagang dalaga na! HAHA! Bagay din sayo ang girly outfit, dati kase, before I stopped blogging you weren't this girly and ladylike (outfitwise). But I loved your unique style from before!

    And in life talaga, we win some, we lose some. What's important is that we don't let the wins get into our heads and we don't let the loses get into our heart! Go lang ng go sa next fight!
