Be Back Soon!

In your life, you'll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There's the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you're with...and the one that got away...

Who is the one that got away? I guess it's that person with who everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn't fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a long-time partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little nice ties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you're not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn't matter who you're with, it just doesn't work. Small problems become big; inconsequential become deal breakers simply because you're not ready and it shows. It's not that you and the person you're with are no good; it's just that it's not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you're ready. You really are. And when this happens you'll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it'll work because you're ready. It'll work because it's the right time and you'll make it work. And it'll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you're finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want, and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there's no telling when this day will come.

Hopefully you're single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn't matter. All you know is that you've changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about.
You'll think about them because you'll wonder, "What if they were here today?" You'll wonder, "What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?" That's what the one that got away is. The biggest "What if?" you'll have in your life.

If you're married, you'll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you're mature enough realize that you're already with the one you're with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you'll think about him/her every so often, but it's alright. It's never nice to live with a "might have been," but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who's already married. In which case it's the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you're old and gray and reminiscing. But if neither of that is the case, then it's different. What do you do if it's not yet too late? Simple...find him, find her. Because the very existence of a "one that got away” means that you'll always wonder, what if you got that one?

I am ranting about our expenses. It seems no matter how we try to budget our finances we still end up paying for more. I’m wondering what my mom will decide to cut off this time, she erased our Saturday night dinner and we even cut our trips to the mall to avoid spending on shopping. We also try to convoy, to save on gas, but the thing about gasoline is that it keeps on going up. It’s annoying, we might as well walk and I’m not really a big fan of public transportation. It’s a good thing we are using Gas Rebate Credit Cards, it’s giving us a big discount and somehow save on gasoline.

I don’t feel well. I’m not really sure if it’s the gloomy weather or if it’s simply my Lupus illness that’s making me feel weak, tired and lonely. Ever since the “break-up” my friends have been really supportive and always trying their best to cheer me up. They make an extra effort to call, text and even visit to check on me. Generally, I am fine. I’m not really crying in my sleep, actually I’m not even crying at all. My friends say that I should... that sometimes we just need to have a good cry to let go over someone, somehow a chance to mourn over your loss but I don’t feel like crying. Maybe, I’m still in denial mode or the reality of having him out of my life forever hasn’t sunk in yet. But since yesterday, there’s an overwhelming sadness and it’s starting to scare me. *sigh*

When I got sick, I was forced to stay home. I wasn’t able to walk for several months and I have been in and out of the hospital. For someone who used to have an active lifestyle like me, being in that situation was really tough. I’m not used in doing nothing and I get easily bored. That’s where I started to get hooked on the internet, at first I was addicted with message boards and online forums but later on I got bored and wanted to find something worthwhile to do in the internet. I came across distant learning and the thought of studying online and having an online degree was exciting, after two years I managed to finish my online studies. Finally, something worthwhile with my online life.

I'm thankful for the long weekend, it's a wonderful day to just sit back and relax. I just wanted to stay home today, I really want to catch up on my sleep and take a rest. I also had a bonding time with my family who also didn't want to go anywhere today. A lazy yet enjoyable weekend, it gave me a chance to smell and admire this beautiful rose in our garden...

and watch these doves, as they go marching on...

It's holiday tomorrow and I'm looking forward for another day of resting. Have a splendid week ahead!

One of my friends says that eating sweets when you’re down and lonely will make you happy. So this afternoon, I treated myself with one of my favorite desserts, a blueberry cheese crepe...

It’s sweet and yummy. It did not really took all my blues away but it certainly made me feel happy and a little guilty as well because this is not part of my diet and it’ll be a waste to break my good weight loss program now. But, I think a little won’t hurt, don’t you think?

Now, is there really an explanation on why eating sweets can lessen the burden you feel inside? Or is it just a myth to have an excuse to indulge yourself?

When I underwent chemo therapy two years ago, my primary concern was losing my hair. Call me vain or whatever but I’ve always kept my hair long and I really took extra effort to take care of it and the thought of losing it because of chemo was really terrifying. That’s just one of the few things that Lupus did to me. While having chemo, I started losing my hair and I remembered crying every time I see the strands of my hair from my comb, but God was so good that He didn’t allow me to lose my hair altogether and once my chemo therapy was over my hair started to grow back and now I got the hair that I always loved. I’m a little strict when it comes to treating my hair, I don’t want it to be handled by just anyone and I always make sure that I only have the service of a hair professional and with someone who went to hair school. Well, there’s nothing wrong to take extra precaution right? After all a good hair day will always brighten up your day.

Oftentimes we say goodbye to the person
we love without wanting to.
Though that doesn’t mean that
we've stopped loving them
or we've stopped to care.
Sometimes goodbye is
a painful way to say I love you...

When I met you, I never really thought that we could end up this way. You are just the bestfriend of my boyfriend, and you eventually became my bestfriend. You and I went through a lot, you saw me at my best and at my worst. If there’s anyone that I could say who knows me inside out that would be you. You know my tantrums, my mood swings and even my dominance and stubbornness. I could easily just pour my heart on you and just be myself. I remembered the time when my parents split up, you were there as I let the tears run dry. When I graduated from college, you were there to celebrate with me. When I was looking for my first job, you were there patiently waiting... As I look back, I find you in every major event in my life, like I always say you are my North Star, the only constant in my life. I can’t remember exactly the time that I first realize that I am falling in love with you, what I do remember was I try to hide my feelings, tried to suppress whatever love I’m feeling for you because I don’t want to ruin the special friendship that we have. But eventually, from friends to lovers, we were a picture of an ideal couple, a match made in heaven and when you asked me to spend the rest of our lives together, that was one moment that I will never forget. It sounds too good to be true, more like a dream and I thought it would stay that way. But the unknown villain came in the picture, Lupus... Now, my semi-charmed life was ruin and it has changed me in anyway possible. During those times that I was battling with my sickness, you never left my side even though I tried so hard to push you away, you were still there. Everyone said that I’m lucky, that I can never find anyone like you anymore. You told me, you were willing to wait no matter how long it takes, that you’ll gonna take care of me and I should have just let you do all that but I didn’t I decided to let you go. I wanted you to let me go, for your own sake. I just don’t want to drag you into the uncertainty of my illness and suffer with me. Call it self-pity or whatever I just did what I thought would be the best for us. Love was never the question, I may have fallen for somebody else but in my heart there’s only you. I’m glad that after a long while, you’ve decided to let me go and we just have to accept that as sad as it may seem, we were just never meant to be. I don’t know what the future hold, I’m not even sure what my heart really wants at this time but all I know is that you will always be my bestfriend, my North Star. I wish you well.

A few weeks ago I attended my first wedding for this year and it looks like I’m going to attend a lot of weddings this year again. And to add to my torture, I think I’m going to make a career out of being a bridesmaid hmmm I don’t really mind but what I do hate is the effort to wear those impractical expensive gowns that I’ll get to wear only once. I love weddings, I think it’s sweet but I would rather be a plain guest or the organizer rather than the bridesmaid... and you know what part do I hate the most?? Yeah, you guess it right the calling all single female ladies to catch the bouquet, goodness! But what I love about weddings is the fact that two people are brave enough to bind themselves together and commit, I find it a miracle to be able to find someone that you could actually want to spend the rest of your life with. And one more thing, I always adore the flowers. Did you know that you could save a great deal with wholesale calla lilies? Now, who wouldn’t want that for their weddings?

I spent my early morning today playing badminton with my cousin and my favorite badminton buddy. It felt great to be out there again but the best part about of it all is that I feel wonderful. My friends say that I’m in denial, they just couldn’t believe that I feel fine after breaking up a ten year relationship I’m not really sure if that’s true or if the reality just hasn’t sunk in yet but I really feel alright and that’s the way I wanted it to be. I’m thankful for my friends who have been very supportive and who never left my side. It’s not that I don’t feel sad, I do somehow I know I’m gonna miss him but I guess I have accepted the reality that some things are really not meant to be no matter how much we want them to. I’m not eager to get over this broken heart but I’m not too keen to dwell on it.

Now, I’m just looking forward on perfecting my serve.

I’m raving... my mom says I should worry but I’m not, I’m actually glad that I’m losing weight and my loss of appetite is not causing me any alarm. I’m not associating this with another lupus flare I’m thinking of it in a good way because I may go back to my original body size but at least I’m trimming down a little with the help of some fitness equipment and watching what I eat. This morning I lost another 2lbs and in less than two months I lost 4 inches in my waist and I’m down one dress size. I just can’t help but feel good about it.

There’s a cat in our porch and it’s definitely not ours but that cat is constantly in our porch sort of our unwanted pet. Well, don’t get me wrong it’s not that I don’t like cats I’m just more of a dog person. That cat has a habit of sitting in my mom’s favorite chair and it annoys my mom. Well, I told her why not get that kitty, a cat furniture and we might as well keep it. Long shot my mom doesn’t like cats too...

You are mysterious. You are someone who can handle pressure with ease, and can handle any atmosphere without going berserk. You can be mean at times, and love to gossip with your selected group. Very prim and proper. You like all situations and things to be in the w! ay you desire, which, sometimes is not possible. As a result, you may lose out in some relationships. But otherwise, you love to help people out from difficult and tight spots when they really need you.

If you are an Ass : A very loyal and sweet person. Your loyalty can never be doubted. You are quite honest and sincere when it comes to your attitude towards working. You are a very simple person, indeed. Absolutely hassle free, humble, and down-to-earth!! That explains the reason why your friends cling on to you! You have a good taste for clothes. If your wardrobe is not updated with what is trendy, you sure are depressed. Popular and easy-going. You have a little gr! oup of dignified friends, all of them being quality-personified.

If you are a Slug : Always up to some sort of a mischief! The mischievous gleam in your eyes is what mak e s you so cute and attractive to everyone. You are an extremely fun-to-be-with kind of person. No wonder people seek your company and look forward to include you for all get-together's. However, you are sensitive which is a drawback. People need to select their words while talking to you. If someone tries to fiddle around and play with words while dealing with you, it is enough to invite your wrath. God bless the person then!

If you are a Cockroach :Quite contradictory to your name, you are a peace loving person. You best try to avoid a situation wherein you are required to fight. An outdoor person, you dislike sitting at one place for a long duration. You are a born leader, and have it in you how to tactfull! y deriv e work from people. You love being loved and when you receive your share of limelight from s omeone, you are all theirs!!!! Well, well... Hence some people could even take an advantage, flatter you to the maximum and get their work done. So be careful.....I

f you are a Parasite :An extremely lovable, adorable person, sometimes shy, with a passion for quick wit. At times, you prefer quietness. You love exploring various things and going into depth of each thing. Under normal circumstances you're cool but when given a reason to, you are like a volcano waiting to erupt. You're a fashion bird. People look forward to you as an icon associated with fashion. Basically, you mingle along freely but don't like talking much to strangers. People feel very easy in your company. You observe care in choosing your friends.

If you are a Skunk : You are near to perfect and nice at heart! . The e xamples of your kindness are always circulated in groups of people. You, too, love peace. You wouldn't like to retaliate even to a person who is in the wrong. You are loved due to this. You do not wish to talk behind one's back. People love the way you always treat them. You can give, give, and give love, and the best part is that you do not expect it back in return. You are generous enough. Seeing things in a practical light is what remains the best trait of you guys.

If you are a Bullfrog :You symbolize a very happy-go-lucky approach in life. Whatever the surroundings may be, grim or cheerful, you remain unaffected. In fact, you spread cheer wherever you go. You are the leader of your group of fri ends! and go od at consoling pe ople in their times of need. You dislike hypocrisy and tend to shirk away from hypocrites. They can never be in your good books, no matter what. You are very methodical and organized in your work. No amount of mess, hence, can ever encompass you. Beware, it is easy for you to fall in love....

If you are a Snake : You are mysterious. You are someone who can handle pressure with ease, and can handle any atmosphere without going berserk. You can be mean at times, and love to gossip with your selected group. Very prim and proper. You like all situations and things to be in the w! ay you desire, which, sometimes is not possible. As a result, you may lose out in some relationships. But otherwise, you love to help people out from difficult and tight spots when they really need you.

If you are an Ape : Very impatient and hyper!!! You want things to be done as quick as possible. At heart, you are quite simple and love if you are the center of attraction. That way, you people are unique. You would like to keep yourself safe from all the angles. Shall your name be dragged or featured in any sort of a controversy, you then go all panicky. Therefore, you take your precautions from the very beginning. When you foresee anything wrong, your sixth sense is what saves you from falling in traps. Quite a money minded bunch you people are!!

Attending the Travel Expo last Saturday was really a grand time for me. Not only did I spend a great time with my friends but I also made tremendous discount in getting great travel packages for my friends and I. I am so looking forward for the summer and I’ve been wanting to spend one whole week in Boracay and looks like my dream is about to come true. I also booked a family package that I’m pretty sure my mom will greatly appreciate. We always like to have a family vacation at least once a year to bond and just spend time together. I find it relaxing and like my mom always say, what’s the use of working so hard if you can’t spend a little for a vacation and we should always find time to do the things that we love. And we surely love to travel and spend a holiday.

I'm addicted to shoes. Don't ask me why but I have a lot of them in my shoe closet and most of it I've only worn once and I really prevented myself for buying but I just can't it's an addiction that I still have to find a cure for... and yes, I'm severely addicted with handbags too... goodness!

You Are Bare Feet

You are a true free spirit, and you can't be tied down.

Even wearing shoes can be a little too constraining for you at times!

You are very comfortable in your own skin.

You are one of the most real people around. You don't have anything to hide.

Open and accepting, you are willing to discuss or entertain almost any topic.

You are a very tolerant person. You are accepting and not judgmental.

You should live: Somewhere warm

You should work: At your own business, where you can set the rules

What Kind of Shoe Are You?

I’m almost done setting up my new business and I’m all set for its opening next month. I’m glad that all those preparations are all over and I can finally find time to blog again, among other things. It has always been my dream to have a business of my own and although I’m practically managing our family business I still want to try it on my own and I first thought of getting a franchise but then I realize that I’ll be needing a bigger capital for that and I’m not sure I want to take that risk, so I decided to open up a business that I like and something that I know and pretty soon my own photo studio/shop will be open for business. Wish me luck!

I had a great weekend with my college buddies. After attending the travel expo and booked our future travel plans for the summer we spent the afternoon at PierOne and later that evening we watched Freestyle in concert, sorry about the picture I only used my camera phone.

It was fun and it's no wonder we were starving and craving for some more fun... Want to have a bite ?

Have a nice week ahead!

I enjoy traveling a lot and every year I try to go to a place that I've never been to and this year we are thinking of Batanes. I'm going to Baguio later this month, a bit late for the Panagbenga Festival but I don't really mind. And finally, after a very long while I'll be spending a week in Boracay this summer. It's wonderful that I can travel again, I missed out a lot when I was sick that I'm sort of filling the gaps now that I feel much better.

A true great love can bear the pain and longitude of waiting even it takes forever. When confused about love, follow your heart, it may not always be right but you will have the memories to make you smile. If your head tells you one thing, and your heart tells you another thing, before you decide, you should think first whether you have a better head or heart. It's OK to kiss a fool or let the fool kiss you but don't let the kiss fool you. Don't find love, let it find you, that's why it's called falling in love because you don't force yourself to fall, you just fall. Never be ashamed to show love when you feel it because you might realize that love is already afraid to show itself to you.

Girls are like angels, they easily forgive and forget, while men are like devils, they easily get and forget. To love someone is to have courage to walk away and let go the other one who wishes to be free, no matter how much it hurts never say "I Love You" when you don't even care. Never talk about the feeling if they aren't there. Never touch a heart it you mean to break it. Never look into the eyes if all you have to say is lie. Never say hello if you mean goodbye.

Love is like a butterfly the more you chase it the more it eludes you, but if you just let it fly, it would come to you, when you least expect. On the course of love, people must teach their heart to be brave enough to hold on when things go wrong and brave enough to let go when they realize that things are not meant to be after all. Most relationships are like traffic signs: one way, two way, do not enter, slippery when wet, no U-turn, no left turn, but what I like the most is to give way. Words and heart should be handled with care, for words when spoken and hearts when broken are the hardest thing to repair.

The simplest pick-up line doesn't have so many words and all I need is "I" for me to say it, "LOVE" for me to share it, and "YOU" for me to give it. Don't shed your tears for someone who hurt you. Don't long for the person if they left. Don't feel sorry if you fail when you try your best. Someone out there far more deserving for your time and love. If I tell you "I LOVE YOU" you shouldn't wonder why, or how, or since when, or for how long because I wouldn't have a single answer except to tell you again.

In the game of love it doesn't really matter who won or lost, what's important is that you know when to hold or when to let go. It's the presence of the soul that makes you "LIVE" but it's the presence of "LOVE" that makes us want to live. If your heart gets broken by the time you truly love... don't let go of the love for the person but let go of the person. You'll never know love might be sweeter the second time around. It's hard to find true love because people are too caught up looking for the perfect person. They don't realize that love is not finding the perfect person but being the perfect person for someone else more.

Love knows no reason, love knows no lie, love defies all reasons, love has no eyes, but love is not blind, it sees all but it doesn't mind. We are sometimes afraid to say "I Love You" instead we say "I MISS YOU" but often misunderstood leaving the ones we love on which you don't realize that's it also feeling the same feeling that you do. Love not because the person is the only one but because the person is the one you are willing to give up everything because it's worth fighting for. It's hard to pretend to love someone that you don't, but it's harder to pretend you don't love someone that you really do. Once you had loved. You will always love. For what's on your mind may escape, but what's on your heart will remain forever.

Love is not how you forget but rather how you forgive. It is not how you listen but how you understand, not by what you say, but what you do and not by what you receive but by what you do. True love wants a person to be happy even if you won't be the one that the person will share his/her happiness with. If you love someone, don't hold back, never hide your feelings, never economize your love and most of all never take the person for granted because you'll never know what you have till it's gone. Sometimes we think that loving someone can be such a risky thing. How else would you win if you don't take chances? You don't lose by giving, you lose by holding back. Never try to impress someone to make him/her fall in love with you cause when you do, you will keep the standard for the rest of your life. Never rush in love, for it never runs out. Let love be the one to look for you so that when you start to fall, you will always know that the feeling is sure. Yes! It drives you crazy, it makes you mad, jealous, and sad, it even causes you sleepless nights, breaks your heart. Well, come to think of it? It's healthy to fall in love. True love is not when the heart beats faster or fastest, but when it beats no more and yet the love is still there. If you have reasons why you love a person, then you are using your mind, but if you love a person with no reason at all then you are using your heart.

LOVE is not a word to say when you feel guilty. Not the right word to say when we like a person... but love really matters when we share our thoughts, minds and our hearts.

My first course in college was Mining Engineering. It’s not something that I want but I was a late enrollee and that was the only available Engineering course in my father’s chosen university. I never liked engineering, I always wanted to be a journalist or a lawyer but my father didn’t approve of my choice and he insisted that I should take engineering otherwise he won’t pay for my college degree well, imagine the dilemma I had to face back then. But I have learned to embrace engineering, with its math and everything else I started to love it and I found mining engineering very fascinating. Imagine discovering all those precious metal and the bullion of gold, interesting right?

I just got back from celebrating Chinese New Year with my friends in Singapore. It was a splendid weekend, truly relaxing and something that I've been looking forward to. It eased the heavy burden and it helped me to not think about my broken heart. Well, it's the valentine season so imagine the torture...

Anyway, it took a lot of courage to get me into this cable car, since I got a fear of heights I just find it really scary but I guess since I have been through a lot in my life right now a cable car ride won't be so bad...

Have a great week everyone!

Setting up a new business involves a lot of budgeting and planning. In fact the first thing I did was laid out my business plan so that I could have a guide and set my goals. I also utilized the capital that my father entrusted me with so that I won’t disappoint him. I am excited and a bit nervous. Finishing the paperworks are truly a hassle, I hated it and I realized more and more how corrupt our government is and I belong to a political family and my uncle is even the vice governor of our province, imagine that.

As you probably know I am opening my own business later this month. I am opening a printing press of my own and expanding our internet cafe is also on its way. I am excited and a bit terrified that I might fail and disappoint my parents who have been very supportive of my idea. It’s rather difficult and I’m determined to do everything I can to make it work. I am doing everything to save by using used cisco and everything else that I could to make use of my capital wisely.

I need a plasma mount...

Don’t get me wrong I still have to get a plasma TV but I badly need a mount for my TV in my room because my neck is killing me every time I watch TV. Back in our hotel room in Singapore, the plasma TV was astonishing I never appreciated watching TV as I did back there and it’s not that I don’t like watching TV it’s just that I don’t have much time to watch. But I do follow my favorite TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Heroes and Brothers & Sisters.

I miss my bed, since I was on vacation for almost five days I barely had a goodnight sleep. I find it odd that even though I’m in a nice mattress in a very comfortable hotel room I still can’t get a good night sleep. Well, I just miss my room and my bed. I think I find it more relaxing to be in the comfort of my own room. It’s just nice to be home again and though there’s a pile of work that I need to do today, I am glad to be back home.

My late grandfather made a fortune as a real estate agent. Since we live in the province, my grandfather sold farm lots that are now developed subdivisions and most of the land that my parents inherited was bought by these developers although my folks were not too keen about the idea of selling most of our assets they managed to keep some for us. My father used to try being an agent himself but he’s just not for it and neither do I. I guess, we need to take a different career path.

I’m on a holiday...

My college friends and I pushed through with our plans to visit our college friend in Singapore, since Chinese New Year was a holiday there we took advantage of it to unwind and just have fun. I have been so toxic the couple weeks because of the preparation of my new business that’s opening later this month. It’s a nice way of revitalizing myself before I tied myself in a new commitment that I’ll be taking.

Starting my own business was tough. I had to weigh a lot of things over and decide if I should get Business Loans. I never thought that acquiring Business Loans can be so easy, provides an easy, fast and simple way of getting business loans. It was a good thing that I didn’t have to apply for one.

I’ll be staying here over the weekend, see you when I get back. Have a nice weekend to all of you.

I had a toxic weekend, so much to do and yet so little time...

This weekend, I attended my first wedding for this year and you guess it right, I am once again a bridesmaid. Well, nothing new about that and it seems weird to attend a wedding after finalizing my break-up with my boyfriend for ten years. Don't worry, I am surprisingly fine. I guess, it was inevitable and something that I had anticipated for awhile now. But when the priest asked this question "Do you take thee ___ to be your lawful beloved husband for the rest of your life?" I was suddenly caught up with my own thoughts and remembered not so long ago when I thought I will be spending the rest of my life with that certain someone... and then the music started playing and I am brought back to reality...

A Stargazer Lilies, the centerpiece at the reception caught my eye and I just find them so vibrant and so happy. I maybe not be in love right now but I am certainly happy with my life. I think that matters most.

Have a great week everyone!

I never pictured myself wearing eye glasses, I just don’t think I’ll look good on it and besides imagine the hassle of wearing one. For a bookworm like me, that’s truly a torture. It started out with a blur vision and then followed by swelling eyes as if I just finished crying and then the doctor was telling me that prolong use of steroids caused this blurry vision and I need to wear prescription glasses temporarily. I hate it but do I really have much choice... Thank goodness for Great Discovery: Zenni Optical a stylish prescription glasses that fit right to your budget. Zenni Optical $8 Rx Glasses are so affordable because you can purchase them directly online and you can personally choose from their wide collection of stylish glasses that will not make you look nerdy or older than your age.

The past few days have been toxic and I was so busy with a lot of things that I had forgotten that the most dreadful month has arrived. February, it’s the love month once again and no wonder I have been so grumpy all day.

There’s a lot going on in my life right now and words are not enough to even begin how my heart is breaking with the news that the one that used to be the love of my life for ten years has finally given up on me and I heard that he’s getting married in a few months. I should be happy for him, right?

After all that was what I wanted, that was the reason that I let him go, to let him find the one for him then can somebody tell me why am I so sad.

Is this the time for regrets?

Nah, I’ll get used to it somehow after all pain has been like a bitter pill that I take every day along with my medicines. Another heartache won’t kill me just yet.

Do you know how to play snooker? Well, I don’t. I was browsing to find a good site to play billiards and I found a place where you can play billiards, pool and online snooker. It’s exciting and what’s more they even have billiard tournaments that can really make you try harder. I love their site, great graphics and they’ll even teach you how to play and they even provide support if in case you want to know something. Let’s play.

Gosh, I miss blogging and I miss you all my blogger friends. Maybe you’re wondering why I’m missing in action don’t worry I am not sick nor am I in love (how I wish) but I was so busy and pre-occupied with the upcoming opening of my very own business. It has always been a dream of mine to have a business on my own and last year, I decided that since Lupus has been allowing me to have more good days it’s time to move on with my career. I am always ranting that Lupus put my life on hold and there were so many things that I wasn’t able to do because of my illness but God has been so good to me that slowly my life is getting back on track and although I have a lot of things to catch up I am patiently starting to move ahead.

Aside from opening my own business in the coming week, I also opened an online store selling almost everything that I love especially bags, perfume and wallet. It’s only been a month and my sales are very satisfying that I plan to pursue in having my own domain for my online shop and probably make it more accessible to more people. I know I still need to get the hang of it and learn how it can work effectively. It’s also a given fact that I’ll need a shopping cart software to further enhance my online store and manage it more efficiently.
