Old habits are hard to die. Chos. Since bawal ang alcoholic beverage dito (sobrang bawal), at di naman talaga ako umiinom, 😜😝 I bought this carbonated drink. Haha. Natuwa lang kasi ako sa bote. Parang sparkling water lang. 😁#dandanah #saudicocktail #drinks #notoalcohol #carbonateddrink #goodgirl 😜

Cryola Friday

Okay, ang post na ito ay puno ng kadramahan at kung gaano ako kaiyakin. Haha.

Well, this day started sa kagustuhan kong maka- Skype ang family ko. From duty, tinext ko sila agad na gusto ko mag-Skype. I’ve been 4 months here already at ngayon lang yung matino naming Skype kasi may laptop na ako. *wink*

So nung nag-Skype kaninang umaga dito, hapon sa Pinas, gusto ng nanay ko na gabi nalang daw para lahat sila nasa bahay. At wala pa din naman akong tulog from duty, so, pumayag ako.

Nung hapon, sinabihan ko sila na saglit lang kasi araw ng pasyal namin dito dahil Friday. Kelangan by 3pm ready na ako. Ang usapan 2pm kami mag Skype aba nag-online malapit na mag 3pm. Sinulit ko nalang yung oras. Buti din naman at nakisama ang internet dito sa flat at tuloy-tuloy ang usapan. Nagtuloy tuloy din ang luha ko.

Sobra ko kasing namiss ang parents ko. Nakakatawag naman ako every week, nakakausap ko sila via FB chat pero iba pa din talaga pag nakikita sila, kahit sa computer lang. Nung kausap ko yung sister ko, di pa ako naiiyak, pero nung humarap na sa laptop yung tatay ko, kahit pa pixelated sila. Naiyak talaga ko. Kahit pa every week nakakausap ko naman sila sa telepono.Sabi ng kapatid ko, pixelated din naman daw ako pero di ko alam kung paano na figure out ng tatay ko na umiiyak na ko haha. Una pa nga, inaasar niya ko na ang laki na daw ng mukha ko, Grabe di ba? Hindi ba pwedeng naka higa ako nung kausap nila ko? tinakpan ko yung cam tapos umiiyak na ko, kasi dun ko talaga napatunayan na di sapat ang boses para sa akin kelangan nakikita ko talaga sila, kahit sa computer lang.

Tapos, sabi ng sabi yung tatay ko na, umiiyak na daw ako, bakit daw ako umiiyak. Wag daw ako umiyak, eh pag ganon, lalo ako naiiyak, kakainis. Haha. Sa tinagal ko dito, everytime na tatawag ako sa kanila at makakausap ang tatay ko. Parehas lagi ang tanong nun, kaya kanina ganon ulit mga tanong niya tapos sabay singit na wag na daw ako umiyak kasi naiiyak daw siya. Eh di umiyak na naman ako. Grabe yung mata ko kanina, ayaw paawat. Nung naawat naman na, si Mama naman ang kumausap, naiyak din, wala pa siyang sinasabi umiiyak na, eh di iyak na naman ako. Wala, umiyak nalang siya kasi kinuha ni Papa ulit yung laptop. Natapos din ang usapan kasi kelangan ko na mag-ayos para sa pasyal namin. Nakakainis nga lang dahil sa huli naiwanan din pala kami nung bus. Hindi ako nakasama sa shopping ngayong araw. After 10 days na ulit ang labas ko. Asar.

Ang dami kong na-realize after nung conversation ko sa family ko.

1. Sobrang miss ko na talaga sila. Yung pakiramdam ko nung paalis ako sa Pinas four months ago, same feeling nung nakausap ko sila kanina. Partida, di pa ako nakakaalis nun, sobrang miss ko na sila. Ngayon pa na apat na buwan na akong malayo sa kanila. Overwhelming yung feeling.

2. Miss na nila ko. Sa pang aasar pa lang ng tatay ko, miss na niya ko. Haha.Paulit-ulit din niya ko ine-encourage na mag exercise. Worried siya na lumaki ako lalo dito haha.

3. We got to say I LOVE YOU. Hindi kami nagsasabihan ng ILY ng parents ko. Ever. Pero, blessing in disguise, hindi, blessing pala talaga din ‘tong pagkalayo ko sa kanila kasi we learned to say ILYs to each other na sobrang di namin ginagawa. Ang sarap pala sa tenga at ang sarap sa feeling. Thank you, Lord.

4. Ang lakas ko maka-OFW.Haha. Well,that’s a fact, proud OFW na ako. Never thought na kakayanin ko malayo sa family and friends ko ng ganito katagal at mas matagal pa kasi apat na buwan palang ako dito, may 20 months pa. Haha. Akala ko sinasabi ko lang na kakayanin ko, pero kaya ko pala talaga. So proud of myself.

5. Loneliness and homesick will always be there. Kelangan lang talaga malakas ang loob at faith kay Lord. Kasi, di ko naman inaasahan na mabilis akong makakapag-adjust dito. Di ko din inaasahan na kakayanin ko maging independent sa ganitong sitwasyon pa. Faith lang talaga and prayer na patatagin pa lalo ni Lord loob ko. :)

Achievement unlocked. :)

Cooked Lechon (manok) Paksiw. Di lang halata kasi masarsa yung gawa ko. Yay! Kausap ko si Mama habang niluluto ito at sinigawan niya ko sa phone kasi akala niya nagluto na naman ako ng Paksiw na isda na naging dahilan kung bakit kailangan ko magpa-IV last month. 😅 Haha. Dear my parents, you’d be so proud of me when you taste this one. 😊 #feelingchef #lechonpaksiw #achievementunlocked #100happydays #day37

17 Things To Expect When You Date A Girl Who’s Used To Being On Her Own

1. Expect her to do her own thing often and without letting you know, at least at first. It’s not that you don’t matter; it’s just that she’s learned to love doing what she wants, when she wants, and without asking permission or informing anyone.

3. Expect her friends to be overprotective of her and to be suspicious of you at first. They’re not used to her being with someone and they’ll want to make sure you’re the kind of guy who will treat her well.

4. She’ll have a hard time letting you do things for her. Try not to take this personally. She’s just used to taking care of herself and it’ll be hard for her to live in a world where she’s got someone else looking out for her in that way.

5. Expect her to be stubborn, to always want things her way, and to fight you when she doesn’t get it. Don’t always give in to her, but do let her win sometimes.

6. She needs to be left alone often especially when you first start seeing each other and it should feel like she’s head over heels. Believe that she has more butterflies in her stomach than she knows what to do with, which is why she’ll need to compose herself.

7. Expect her to pull away from you, especially when she realizes how much she likes you. She’ll come back to you but she’ll need time to think her feelings through.

8. She’ll question you, sometimes directly, sometimes implicitly, about your feelings for her. She’ll always want to know if they are real or if she’s making things up in her head.

9. Expect her to be headstrong. She’ll tell you, “I’ve got this,” more than you’ll want to hear. But she’ll get used to your offers to help. And in time she’ll know how to let go of the tight grip she seems to have on everything.

10. She’ll be guarded, and she won’t be keen on letting you in. She’s waiting to see if you’re patient, she’s waiting to see if you’re worth it. She’s hoping that you’re worth it.

11. Expect her to be stingy with trust, to only give a little bit at a time. But every time she gives you a little, it’ll feel like a big step for her. Cherish these big steps.

12. She’ll come across as strong, maybe too strong for you at first. But don’t be intimidated, this is her outer shell. And when you get to know her, you’ll know she’s strong but soft; tough but kind.

13. Expect her to be reserved, at least about the things that matter. Until you really get to know her. And then you’ll see the untamed, raw, and always beautiful open version of her that she’ll let you fully discover.

14. She’ll be slow with her vulnerabilities, and hide many of her weaknesses. And when she shows you them, she’ll feel naked. Clothe her with your words.

15. Expect her not to need you, and not to believe in needing much of anything at all. But she’ll want you. And when she does, it’ll be the most exhilarating feeling you’ve ever experienced.

16. She’ll be scared – scared to be hurt, scared to love, and be loved. Scared that you’ll eventually hurt her or leave her and if and when that happens, she won’t know who she was before.

17. Being alone is her default, it’s her comfort zone. But expect her to fall in love with you faster than she’ll admit and in a way that isn’t loud but still powerful; it’ll be like a little bit of heaven. And it won’t matter if you love her for a while or for a lifetime; her love will change both you and her forever.
