Oh my darling, Clementine!

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd 

Lines and pictures above came from one of my all-time favorite sob-fest movies. 
I have no plans on going emo (saving this sana for Vday, hahaha), but bilang umulan
nadin naman kanina, decided to bring out my tangerine jacket from WRANGLER,
and sport the look of Kate Winslet aka Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Perfect for the chill-lang day, I also wore my red Veloci watch with the nice red Asprey strap:

Family went to Festival earlier (our every-Sunday mall, haha). Before our ubusang-pera
session (aka shopping), had merienda first with my sister Cea in Pancake House:

Bottle caps tee, hehe:

Hindi naman talaga ako sad (surprisingly, hahaha).. Just going for the Clementine aura---minus the blue hair:

Shared pancakes and fries with my sister (not in pic)

And took more emo pics by the carousel (para may bokeh bokeh effect, hahaha)

It's getting colder now, and finally another year is closing. I usually make those cheesy (and lengthy!) year 
enders, but I hope I'll still find the time to compile my 2012 before New Year's Eve (and work!). I love that,
collecting memories, and then realizing that, although the mix, I am actually blessed (even with just the lessons). 
Just a hypothetical question, what if the memory-erasing company Lacuna, Inc exists? Would you erase a
 certain person in your past that causes your early-morning anxieties? It's a tempting offer, I tell you. It would 
be hard to imagine though, what would I be after the process? It's not just about losing the heartaches
anyway, but also killing a part of yourself.

I guess the goal is to reconcile with your 2012 pains before the year ends.
To quote one of the speakers from our church (Bro. Velden Lim):
"Pain without love and purpose is just plain pain. But pain with love and purpose is gain."

To find it in your heart that "it's okay, it's okay, it's okay." 
And it's not all pain, I guess. It might have the most intense impact in your life as of the moment,
but you'll eventually outgrow (or get use to) these...

...Until you realize you'll catch yourself remembering the "in betweens",
or the "best fucking night of your entire fucking life".

PS: You might be interested, so I will post nadin this tidbit for the first quote in this post:
The quote is taken from Alexander Pope's poem "Eloisa to Abelard" in which Eloisa has an intense infatuation with Abelard, but he is unable to return her feelings. So instead of praying to have Abelard return her feelings, or for forgiveness of her feelings, she prays instead to forget Abelard entirely. (source)


  1. hi. this is an all time favorite movie for me too. *sob* hahaha. the thought that certain memories can be erased is so appealing esp if you want to, need to forget someone. oh well.. love the photos!

  2. galing mo na mag emote ha! one of my fave movies of all time din ya, kakamiss. :)) see you later!!!

  3. Damang-dama ko na naman post mo sis!! Haha ako naman kinaka-emo ko yung mage-end na yung Christmas season. Ang bilis!! :( Hahaha pero parang neto lang nagkaka-Christmas blues tayo?? Labo!! Haha I'm curious about this movie, ma-watch nga! :D And syempre, galing mo sis! Achieve mo ng todo yung style ni girl dun sa movie!! Love it ♥

  4. natawa ako sa Clementine aura! hahah pak! winnner! at dahil diyan kaw na daw ang bida sa remake ng film na to! hahahahah.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR Ana! ^__^

  5. I guess perfect talaga kapag tipong year-enders this movie no? After I twitpic'd you and Niche the book of the script I read it again, and super ganda talaga ng Eternal Sunshine. Script, acting, cinematography, score, this movie is perfect. Anyway, you know naman nagka-ganyan na rin ako eksena before na kung pwede sana mabura yun isang tao and everything we shared from my memory, I would, kasi nga super hirap nun nangyari. Every day was like going through hell. But then, when I FINALLY got through it, I realized na kahit mahirap, I really needed to learn those lessons. Parang si Mary (Kirsten Dunst), when she realized in the end na meron nga silang pinagdaanan ng doctor, it hurt her even more. Saka to quote na rin the quote you have at the bottom of your blog layout, "In the end, the journey is the destination."

    Writing this super long comment, I just realized I missed you sis. Thanks for sharing a big chunk of my 2012 with me. Sabi nila, bawat isang tao, meron isang snapshot with them na tatatak sa'yo. I guess, yun sayo for me, yun moment I learned na Poly's gone and you helped pull me together just by showing sheer strength of will not to break down. Yun. Thanks. I love you and happy new year! :)

    By the way, super nice your outfit :)

  6. eek.. Festival mall. Sayang hindi na ulit kita nakita ate Ana :(


Your turn! Always excited to read your comments! :)
