Last Day of 2013

So, this will be my last post for this year, 2013!!! (obviously lol)

I haven’t posted anything in 3 months and i’m so sorry for that. This blog entry will contain all the important events that happened in my 2013. Not all of them may seem important to you but they are to me because these will be the things that made me feel happy, sad, important and all different emotions.

Let’s start!

These photos were taken in January during my Tito and Lola’s birthday. Their bdays aren’t on the same day but the family just decided to spend on one day cause it’s more convenient for everyone since we don’t live near one another. I don’t actually remember anything in particular about this day. We just skyped with my Titos in the US and the kids were playing, oh they were really enjoying the time cause it’s not that often that they see each other. And as for me.. well, I think I ate a lot.. like i always do during family gatherings. 🙂

This was on Valentine’s Day! I don’t have a boyfriend so I just spent it at school with friends. The first photo was taken inside my school. The Student Council at that time held a movie marathon so we decided to go because we actually have nothing else to do. The other two photos were taken inside the Eastwood Mall. They had like a special “event” (idk what it’s called, sorry) for chocolates and so we went there then took a picture behind that heart thingy. 😛 The mall was actually just in front of my school… Valentine’s was a lazy day for us. Haha. 😀

OH! The SC also had this BINGO contest thing and my friend won so she treated us some McDonald’s 🙂

INFOLYMPICS :))

My friend and I had the chance to take a picture with Jeric Teng. He went here because he plays for the Informatics Icons for the D-League. They just gave a few encouraging words and hoped that we all support them in the competition. He’s super tall! Or mayber i’m just super short. hahaha 😛 The second pic was taken during the second day of the infolympics. I was reading “Looking for Alaska” by John Green at the time and I actually brought the book with me as you can see in the picture.

This was our project in Logic Design. Alou and I thought we wouldn’t be able to finish this one because we didn’t pay that much attention in this class (sorry, sir Tacs :D) but fortunately, we managed to complete it and make it work. Alou was going through a hard time during the making of this project so I had to be more understanding and patient with her. Hi Alou! LOL.

I don’t remember if this was a fieldtrip or a team-building event.. but it was fun 🙂 We got to swim after we went through all the obstacle courses. Then I actually got to touch a cow or a sheep or a carabao’s back… I don’t know what it’s called.. but it was something on it’s back which was similar to a camel’s but it was so soft when you touch it. It looked hard but it’s not.. get it? Haha 😛

This was a despedida party for my friend, Honeyme and also a birthday party for her. Well, it was a party for the gang 😀 She was going to leave to Mindanao and stay there for good with her family. I was sad this day because my bestfriend was leaving and I don’t know when we’ll be able to see each other again. We did have lots of fun this day but I think I also cried after a few days because I was going to be away with my friend. ugh. the emotions. 😥 We still do stay in contact. 🙂

1st photo: Taken at the entrance of Pizza Hut Eastwood. It was my friend’s birthday and she treated us. She’s actually not in the photo above… LOL. I’m such a bad friend. But I couldn’t find a better picture! She would understand. AHahaha 😛

2nd photo: We were having a photoshoot for our project in Photoshop class. We had to make a poster with a theme, and our theme was…. nothing really… just students wearing their uniforms. 😀 lol. we aren’t that creative. The posters were hung on the first floor of the school building. I don’t know if I should be happy about that or embarrassed.

These are my high school friends 🙂 I forgot where this was though… :/ I think we drove for 4 hours or more just to get here. We left at dawn and we still haven’t arrived at the location when the sun showed up.

It was still a fun day 🙂 This was a treat by my friend’s parents 🙂

My cousin’s debut! (18th birthday) First picture’s with friends from hs and the second one’s a family picture. 🙂 She doesn’t have a phone because she refused to have one but on this day, she wasn’t able to refuse because it was a gift for her. :)) Now, she never lets anyone use it. Haha.

True Love Waits Ch. 12

Magsipila na kayo!” sigaw ni Rafael. Siya kasi ang class president so ‘yan talaga ang Gawain niya araw-araw, actually, araw-araw for the past 4 years na magkakaklase kami dahil laging siya ang nananalo na president sa room. At pumipila nga pala kami dahil may CFC kami or yung tinatawag na flag ceremony.

Hoy, Vince at Kurt, try niyo kaya lumabas na noh?” medyo naiinis na sabi ni Rafael. Well, ‘di ko naman siya masisisi dahil kanina pa naman siya nagsisisigaw eh.

Nung tumayo sina Vince at Kurt, syempre napatingin ako. Iniisip ko lang kung alam ba niya yung tungkol dun sa picture at sa mga comments. Kung may pakialam ba siya o wala. O kung tama si ate Claire na baka panakit butas lang ako.

Napansin yata niyang tinititigan ko siya kaya napatingin din siya sa akin. Hindi ko inalis ang titig ko. Pero…bakit ganon ang tingin niya? Parang may gusto siyang sabihin. Yung tingin na alam mong may gusto siyan iparating sa’yo pero syempre hindi ko naman alam. Tapos nag-grin siya. It was the slightest grin ever. And then, ayon, naglakad na siya para pumila.

Dumaan siya sa likod ko and then he said, “Let’s talk later. After school hours,” I just nodded in return. Sabi na nga ba eh. Bigla tuloy akong kinabahan. Hindi ko alam kung ano ba ang dapat kong maramdaman.

***

Nang naglalakad na kami sa may parking lot, I received a lot of ‘hellos’ and ‘his’ from students that I know by their faces. And as I expected, there were a lot of stares and glares from left to right. Halos yukong yuko na nga ang ulo dahil ayaw kong makita nila ang mukha. I don’t know why but a part of me is embarrassed. Is there a reason why I should feel like that? I know to myself that there is none but sometimes people make you feel things that you shouldn’t, make you believe things that you shouldn’t and make you do things that you shouldn’t. But that only happens if you let them….so why am I letting them?

Wow, bakit ngayon ko lang naisip ‘yon? Bakit ngayon ko lang naisip na hindi naman ako dapat na matakot at mahiya. Eh wala naman talaga akong ginawang kahiya-hiya. Kurt asked me to hang out and I think I accepted. At hindi naman nila ako pwedeng matawag na mangaagaw dahil wala na sila ni Agnes. Well, cool off daw. But that’s just the same thing, right?

And because of what I realized, I decided that I should just be me. Well, kung maiyak man ako sa mga sasabihin nila after, e’di umiyak.

oh Sheen, kaya pa?” tanong ni Anna Mae. Talaga namang magiging BFFs kami nito ngayong araw eh.

oo naman. Kayang-kaya!

Wow! San mo nakuha ang spirit na ‘yan?!” sabi ni Anna Mae na may kasabay pang palo sa balikat.

Aray! Masakit yun ah!” gumanti tuloy ako. Two times pa.

Makapalo! Dalawa yun ah! Wait lang, wala pa bang binibigay na project si Ms.G?” uhm, well, si Ms. G nap ala ang bago naming teacher sa culinary.

Wala pa. ngayon pa lang po sasabihin. Excited ka masyado.

’Di ah! Never.  Ako pa? ” tapos biglang sinabihan na kami lahat ni Rafael na umayos ng pila. Buti na lang at sa likod ako nakapwesto.

***

Sa totoo lang, marami-rami ang nagtanong sa aking ng tungkol dun sa facebook pero syempre, sa mga close friends lang ako nagkwento. Ayaw ko namang may iba pang makaalam ng totoong nararamdaman ko about it.

Tumunog na yung bell. Ibig sabihin, uwian na. ibig sabihin, HAPPY ME!

Yes! Sa wakas!” sabi ko ng medyo malakas.

Excited masyado?” tanong ni kate na nakatawa tapos nakangiti rin. Ito talagang si Kate parang walang kaproble-problema.

Syempre naman. Makakauwi na eh.” Sagot ko. ‘di naman yata halata na super excited ako eh.

Pero Monday ngayon so may pasok pa sa susunod na apat na araw,” nangaasar ata tong si Kate eh. Sasagot na sana ako kaya may tinuro siya sa likod ko. ‘Pag lingon ko, si Kurt pala.

Pwede ko bang mahiram ang kaibigan mo, Kate?” tanong ni Kurt kay Kate.

Ah sige. Mauna na ako sa’yo, Sheenna ah. Bye,” nag-bye na rin ako sa kanya. Hay, nakalimutan kong maguusap nga pala kami. Wala na, nawala na ang excitement ko.

Sheenna, pwede bang sa sky garden tayo mag-usap?

Sige.” So umakyat na kami.

I Love you….Because you’re Pretty (an edited version of Love At First Sight)

Does love at first sight mean true love or just temporary love? Well, who knows?

According to a website I was reading, love at first sight is an emotional condition whereby a person feels romantic attraction for a stranger in the first encounter.

Since childhood up to my adolescent stage, I still hear the phrase “love at first sight” connected to sentences about this stranger they saw while they wandered around the streets. They usually said praises pertaining to the other’s physical traits. That’s why, as a kid, I always thought that beautification of the outside appearance is key to having a long lasting relationship.

I had also heard a real love story that started with just a simple look then they clicked to each other and, amazingly, they did get their happily ever after.

But growing up in a society like mine, I have learned to grow. To grow in mind and to live not according to what people tell me. And that’s when I realized that love is not measured on the attractiveness of the outside but the wonderful human inside.

I’ve watched movies that had let me see how a person can fall in love with another just by a glimpse. That’s a literal definition of love at first sight to me. I don’t remember the titles of those movies but I still remember those moments. And like any other fictional love stories, the person who fell at first sight lived happily ever after with his love.

But when I see those moments on television, I still have this question in mind: How do they know if it’s love?

How can they determine that that person will be the love of their life? How can they be so sure of such feeling? And can it be that it’s only because of their hormones? Yes, all these questions pop into my mind when talking about love at first sight.

As to how I see it, love at first sight is possible but it’s always a good idea to take a second look because I know for sure that it is not love yet but just an attraction or rather, a crush. I think no one will question me about that for everyone is at fault. Of course, there those who really look at someone’s attitude and character but we cannot deny the fact that most people judge by how we look physically. That’s something I’m certain because I’m also human and I have done it too.

Boys rate girls and girls rate boys. Others say it’s normal and others say it’s rude. For a lot of people, height, weight, color, race and social status matter. And within different cultures, there are different standards. Yes, culture is a big consideration when it comes to love.

In movies, love at first sight ends in happy endings but in reality, not so much. It isn’t safe to say that you can beat all the odds with just one glance because maybe, you don’t know, you’re the only one fighting. 

It is fine to have a ‘type’, it is fine if your standards are mostly based on the outward appearance because no one must dictate you on whom you should like. But make sure that that someone is willing to build a team with you in your relationship. 

Love at first sight is a mere attraction of the physical but if built with a foundation of strong emotional connection, two people might experience true love. 

True Love Waits Ch 10

Tama nga ako, naging masarap at mahimbing ang ang tulog ko nung gabing iyon. Pero sa totoo lang, ayaw ko lang talagang isipin ang isang bagay. Alam ko kasi na kapag inisip ko iyon, masisira ang buong araw ko. Hindi naman siguro magagawa ni Kurt iyon di ba? Hindi naman siguro ganoong klaseng lalaki di ba? Ano ba ito, sinabi nang hindi ko ito iisipin dahil baka maawa lang ako sa sarili ko.

“Hoy Sheenna, bakit nakatulala ka na naman dyan?” sabi ni ate Claire, kasambahay namin siya dito. Hindi kami mayaman pero kailangan lang para makatulong sa mga gawain sa bahay, pareho kasing may trabaho ang magulang ko.

“Sorry po, ate Claire. May iniisip lang.”

“Eh ano naman ang iniisip mo?”

“Sasabihin ko po pero i-promise niyo po na makikinig talaga kayo sa akin..”

“Oo naman. Oh dali, mag-kwento ka na.”

“Kasi po diba lumabasa po ako kahapon…kasama ko si Kurt.”

“Ah oo. Yung gwapo? Crush mo iyon di ba? Kinilig ka ba masyado?”

“Kasi naman, ate Claire eh! Nag-promise ka na makikinig ka.”

“Sorry na. Ito naman. Sige, hindi na ako magtatanong.”

“So ayon, sa mall lang naman po niya ako dinala. Una po naming ginawa ay kumain. Sa Seafood Island pa nga po niya balak kumain pero allergic ako sa seafoods kaya sabi ko sa Kamayan na lang. Siya po yung umorder at nagbayad. pero po nung wala pa yung mga pagkain, nakita ko siya na may tinitingnan. Sobrang seryoso nga ng mukha niya eh, kitang kita ko po iyon. Hindi ko pinansin nung una pero talagang tinitingnan niya pa rin kaya napatingin na rin ako. Nung nakita ko kung sino nagulat po ako at syempre…nalungkot.”

“Sabi ko hindi ako magtatanong pero sino ba iyon?”

“SBarerei Agnes po.”

“Sino naman siya?”

“Ex-girlfriend po siya ni Kurt.”

“Tapos ano nang sumunod na nangyari?”

“Tiningnan din kami ni Agnes. Pero umiwas din ng tingin kaya lang sinundan siya ng tingin ni Kurt hanggang sa di na sila makita tapos dumating na yung order namin. Nag-uusap pa rin naman kami nung kumakain na pero parang hindi na siya interesado na makipag-usap sa akin. Buti na lang nung nag-arcade kami hindi na namin siya nakita. Pero nung pagpunta po namin sa isang shop ng accessories, nakita ko na naman siya. Binilihan kasi ako ni Kurt ng bracelet.” nung sinabi ko yon ipinakita ko kay ate Claire yung bracelet ko pero ngumiti lang siya.

“Bakit po? Hindi ba maganda?”

“Maganda. May tanong ang ako?”

“Ano po?”

“Si Kurt ba ang nagsuot sayo niyan?”

“Opo.”

“Nakita yon nung Agnes?”

“Opo. Teka, bakit ba?”

“Sheenna, siguraduhin mong hiwalay na talaga iyang dalawang iyan. Pero sa ngayon, huwag ka munang umasa sa kahit ano. Kilalanin mo muna ang lalaking iyan.”

“Apat na taon na po kaming magkasama sa school. Feeling ko naman po kilala ko na siya.”

“Hindi sapat yan. Ayaw lang kitang makita na malungkot. Sa tingin ko alam mo naman kung ano yung maari niyang ginagawa kasi iniisip mo rin yan kanina.”

“Sige po. Aakyat muna ako sa kwarto.”

Tama si ate Claire. Alam ko naman kung ano yung maari niyang ginagawa pero kung balak niyang pagselosin si Agnes, bakit ako pa? Ano namang laban ko doon? Ewan. Hindi ko na alam ang gagawin ko.

Kinuha ko yung phone ko at nagulat na lang ako dahil may 10 messages galing lang kay Billie. Ano naman kaya ang dahilan ung bakit siya magtetext sa akin bigla bigla. Matingnan nga.

Hoy! Gising! May sasabihin ako! dali!

Ano ba? Tulog ka pa ba?

Sheenna!

Sheenna!

At lahat ng sumunod na text puro pangalan ko na ang nakalagay. Bakit kaya? Buti may extra load ako ngayon.

Billie, ano ba yon ha?

Sheenna, nagbukas ka na ba ng facebook?

Hindi pa bakit?

“Magbukas ka na, dali!”

Okay, sandali lang.” at ano naman ang meron sa FB? Sana naman importante ito.

Nang makapag-log in ako, nagulat ako kasi meron akong 25 friend requests tapos 52 notifications. Ano ito? Naging artista na ba ako agad? Ito na siguro ang dahilan ni Billie kung bakit atat na atat siyang magbukas ako ng FB ko. Yung 25 na friend requests puro taong hindi ko kilala pero alam kong sa school sila nag-aaral. Wala naman masama kung i-add ko sila, we go to the same school naman. At yung notifications? IYON ANG NATAKOT AKO. 

Puro picture nung kahapon, nung magkasama kami ni Kurt. Dahil sikat nga si Kurt sa school, pinagkaguluhan dahil iba yung kasama niya, ako at hindi si Agnes. Ang daming comments. Every minute yata ilan ang nadadagdag sa notifs ko. Hindi ko na sana babasahin pero hindi ko rin mapigilan ang sarili ko. Yung iba, puro panlalait lang, meron naman na okay lang daw at karamihan, mang-aagaw daw ako. Nakakaiyak, at oo, umiyak talaga ako. Sumakit pa talaga ang ulo dahil ayoko na may makarinig sa iyak ko. Naisip sana nila na tao rin ako.

Parang pang teleserye naman itong nangyayari ngayon sa akin. Ganito lang siguro dahil ang taong kasama ko kahapon ay ang taong gusto rin makasama ng halos lahat ng babae sa school. Yes, it’s a Christian school pero hindi mo maialis sa amin ang ganito, kabataan din kami.

Kailan ba ito matatapos? May pasok pa man din bukas.

PBB Teen Edition 4: Puro na lang lablayp!

bakit ang PBB Teen Edition ngayong 2012 puro na lang tungkol sa love at ilang beses ko na ring naririnig ang mga salitang ‘malandi‘ at ”nilalandi‘, ganito rin ba noong mga nakaraang season?

Hindi ako isang avid na tagasubaybay ng reality show na ito kaya medyo nagugulat ako paminsan-minsan habang nanonood. Kung tutuusin ilang linggo pa lang silang nagkakasama sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya pero nagkakagustuhan na sila.

Si Kit may gusto kay Karen at si Karen may gusto rin kay Kit. Si Claire may gusto kay Yves na may girlfriend naman sa labas pero ang pinopormahan ay si Myrtle at idagdag pa natin si Ryan na pumoporma rin dito kay Myrtle. Saludo naman ako kay Myrtle dahil alam niya ang mga prayoridad niya sa buhay at in fairness, charming naman talaga siya.

Marami pa rin naman iba na nasa loob pero parang ang nagpapatakbo na rin ng show ang may gusto na puro na lang LOVE ang ibigay sa mga manonood. Meron pa nga dati na party para daw mas lalong magkakilala ang mga kabataan sa loob. Kung iyon lang naman ang pakay bakit kailangan pa ng haranahan at date? Siguro to please the viewers kasi nga iyon ang inaabangan ng iba pang kabataan na wala ring inisip kung hindi ang mag-boypren. Sandali lang ha, teen din po ako.

Meron din pa lang task itong si Kuya ngayon na kasama pa si Banker ng Deal or No Deal. Ayos naman motibo niya para ipagawa ang ganitong task at makikita mo rin kung sino sa mga housemates ang mature na at kung sino ang tila gusto pang maglaro. Sana lang ay seryosohin nila ang task na ito para naman makain ko ang mga sinabing kong puro na lang sila tungkol sa LOVELIFE.

Well, matagal pa naman ang PBB so marami pa akong papanuorin at maybe they’ll mature as time passes.

Love at first sight

Love At First Sight.

Did this happen to you? Like, ever?

Does love at first sight mean true love or just temporary love? Well, who knows…

I’ve watched some movies that had let me see how a person can fall in love with another just by a glimpse. That’s love at first sight to me. I can’t remember the titles of those movies or maybe dramas but I still remember those moments. And like any other fictional love stories, the person who fell at first sight lived happily ever after with his love.

But when I see those moments on tv, I still have this question in mind: How do they know if it’s love?

How can they determine that that person will be the love of their life? How can they be so sure of such feeling? And can it be that it’s only because of their hormones? Yeah, all these questions pop into my mind when talking about love at first sight.

I don’t really believe in love at first sight because I know for sure that  it is not love yet but just an attraction. You were just attracted to the person’s physical appearance, don’t you question because we all know it’s true. There may be some who really look at someone’s attitude and character but we cannot the fact that most people judge by how we look physically. That’s something I’m certain because I’m human too and I have done it too.

Boys rate girls and girls rate boys. Others say it’s normal and others say it’s rude. For a lot of people, height, weight, color, race and social status matter. And within different cultures, there are different standards. So yeah, culture is a big consideration when it comes to love.

In movies, love at first sight ends in happy endings but in reality, not so much. It isn’t safe to say that you can beat all odds with just one look because maybe you don’t know, you’re the only one fighting. 

It is fine to have your own ‘type‘ but make sure that that someone is willing to build a team with you in your relationship. 

True Love Waits Ch. 9

Pagkapasok namin sa loob ng arcade, may naalala ako. Ano yon? Bad news. Hindi ako nakahingi ng pera kay Papa at ang laman ng wallet ko ay 50 pesos lang. Yayain ko na lang kaya itong si Kurt sa iba pero parang dito niya gusto dahil hayun, kumukuha na ng pera sa wallet niya para bumili ng tokens niya. Ayoko namang magpalibre sa kanya dahil hindi naman  niya ako obligasyon na ilibre.

“Oh, bakit nandyan ka pa rin? Pumasok ka na kaya.” sabi niya nung napansin niyang wala ako sa tabi niya.

“Ah sige.” pumasok na nga ako ng tuluyan. Papanoorin ko na lang siguro siya.

“Bakit ganyan mukha mo?” tanong niya na may halong pang-aasar pa. Talaga ito oh!

“Wala kang pake!”

“Eh bakit ka nagagalit? Nagtatanong lang naman ako.” sabi pa niya habang tumatawa. “Tara, laro na tayo.”

“Ililibre mo ba ako?”

“Bakit gusto mo bang ikaw ang magbayad for yourself?” natatawa na naman siya.

“Hindi, sige. Nakabili ka na eh. Tanggapin ko na lang ang libre mo.” abot tenga naman ang ngiti ko sa kanya.

“Sheenna, when you’re on a date, the guy will always be the one paying for everything. So don’t you worry. Nag-ready naman ako sa mga gastos.”

“Lahat? As in lahat?” dahil first time ko ito, gulat na gulat talaga ako.

“Huwag mo lang balaking ipabili ang buong mall.” sabi niya habang naglalakad papunta doon sa may basketball. “Pataasan tayo.”

“Joke ba yan, ha, Kurt?”

“You’re a Basketball player and I’m not, Sheenna. I think you’re the one with the advantage here.” nakangiti pa rin siya.

“Eh kahit naman hindi ka basketball player, kasing galing mo naman si John!”

“Dali na. Para masaya at para may thrill.”

“Sige na nga.”

********

Ano ending nung basketball game namin ni Kurt? Syempre siya yung nanalo. At oo, tinambakan niya ako. And to make everything worse inasar-asar pa ako at tinawanan. Tama ba yon? Hindi. Hindi talaga.

What’s next? Haha.

Hinila ko siya sa may barilan. hindi ko nga alam kung ano iyon eh. Pero puro zombie at sobrang dami naming napatay na zombie. Enjoy talaga!  At hinila ko naman siya doon sa may mga race car. Favorite ko rin ito kaya niyaya ko siyang makipag-racing sa akin. Confident pa ako nung una na mananalo ako pero sorry for me, he’s just good at everything.

“Lagi na lang ikaw ang nananalo! Nakakainis na.”

“Sorry.”

“Ha? Bakit?”

“Baka galit ka kasi—”

“Hindi no. Ano ka ba?” nginitian ko lang siya.

“Sheenna!” sumigaw siya ng malakas. Buti na lang at maingay dito at wala papansin sa kanya.

“Bakit?”

“Tara na.”

“Saan naman tayo pupunta ngayon?”

“Basta.” tapos dinala niya ako sa isang shop na nagbebenta ng iba’t ibang accessories for boys and girls.

***

“Bakit tayo nandito? Mahilig ka pala sa mga ganito.”

“Hindi ako mahilig.”

“Eh anong bibilihin mo dito?”

Lumapit siya sa babae sa may counter tapos may itinanong pero hindi ko na narinig kasi may nakita akong cute na bracelet. Habang tinitingnan ko iyon feeling ko may tumitingin din sa akin. Kaya tumingin ako sa kana ko and there I saw her. Nasa tapat ng shop kung nasaan kami. Agad din naman niyang iniwas yung tingin niya sa akin. Bakit kaya? Yes, it’s Agnes, again.

“Maganda ba yan?” nagulat ako bigla nang nagsalita sa tabi ko.

“Kurt, wag kang nanggugulat!”

“Hindi naman kita ginugulat eh. Nagtatanong lang ako.” tumawa-tawa na naman siya. “So, do you like it?”

“okay lang.”

“Yes or No only.”

“Yes.” kapal ko no? wait, hindi naman niya sinabi na bibilhin niya para sa akin so hindi naman siguro ako makapal no?

“Let’s buy it.” kinuha niya agad sa kamay ko tapos binayaran agad. Lightning Kurt, ikaw ba yan ulit? Basketball ba ito?

“Kamay.”

“Ha bakit?” may sira ba ito?

“Wear it na.” kinuha niya yung kamay ko then sinuot na niya sa akin.

Nung papalabas na kami, we saw Agnes looking at us. Pero hinila na agad ako ni Kurt.

“Tara na, let’s get you home. It’s getting dark.”

“Ah sige. Kurt si—”

“Yeah. I know. Just don’t mind her.” sabi niya tapos nginitian niya ako.

“Sige.”

Mga 7:30 na nga kami nakauwi at himala dahil hindi nagalit si Papa sa akin kahit nung pagkaalis ni Kurt. In fairness, mabait si Papa kay Kurt.

Siguradong masarap ang tulog ko nito. 🙂
