Letters of Yesteryears

Last weekend, I was checking the files in my cabinet in Baguio when I came across some of the letters from family and friends that I received over the years. One letter that I read came from my cousin Riza. She was just done with her college enrolment at that time but she can’t understand the schedule so she wrote me a note asking me to help her understand those. She also told me her experiences during the enrolment…that she did not know what she was doing, and that it was only her mom who accompanied her. She asked me not to laugh at her ignorance about how everything goes in college haha! (And of course I did not. I know how it feels) She was apologetic for disturbing me because of her letter but at the same time demanding that I answer ASAP. I am happy that she survived college. Now, she is a full pledged teacher!

Another is a birthday card from Jen, one of my friends since elementary. In addition to the usual birthday greeting, she also wrote a thank you note for all the advices that I gave her and for being a great friend daw. Now I can’t even remember what she was talking about haha. I am just glad that I made someone’s day better through my simple words of wisdom (naks!).

In high school, when summer break comes, it is a practice of most of the students to ask for parting notes from our classmates and teachers. One note that I received in 4th year high school was from my adviser, Mrs. Lily Ferrer. She was wishing me good luck in whatever course I wish to pursue in college. She also advised me to apply for scholarships, which of course I did. I guess she knew then that money was an issue and maybe a reason for me not to continue my studies. But the Lord has always been good and He provides!

Now I remember another letter that I treasure until these days. When I was in 1st year high school, our English teacher required us to write a letter to our parents and have them reply. Yes, this is graded. So I made one and gave it to my dad telling him that it was an assignment and we are required to submit a reply from our parents the following day. I did that just before I went to sleep because I did not want to see his reaction and I did not want us to talk about it. You see, my family is not expressive of how much we value each other hehe. Anyway, the next morning, I saw his reply in our study table. I was expecting a short note but he wrote a long one and I really cried when I read it. Good thing I was the only one awake that time so my siblings nor my parents did not see me. When I went to school, I saw that my classmates’ parents’ replies were just short messages just to comply with the assignment. Deep inside, I felt blessed and I was proud of my parents. Of course I am, until today. I shall be posting that letter here.

As I end this journal entry, I would just like to thank all the people who have become a part of my existence. I wish you all well.

Movies Galore

Apryl and I watched 2 movies today haha! Trip lang. It was just our way of taking a break from work. We watched the magical Harrry Potter and The Legend of Zoro. We even bought a newspaper to check where The Legend of Zoro is still being shown. Luckily, Waltermart still has it. Both movies were good in their own ways. And oh, Papa Antonio Banderas aka Zoro is so gwapo! Hahaha!

Apryl also gave me a test on discipline haha. I told her that for the past movie trips I had with my officemates, I always end up buying VCDs. So she suggested that we drop by Astro Vision and see if I end up buying a VCD or two again. Well, I almost did actually hehehe. But I was not so convinced that I should buy it so I returned it to the rack. Besides, Anne wasn’t there to suggest any good movies hehe and I still haven’t watched the VCDs I bought last time. So…congratulations to me! Mwehehehe

Master’s degree

Here I go again. Nabuhay na naman interest ko sa masteral. I think I should start to think about this seriously. It will mean money, time and energy so I have to really make sure that I want to do it. I have texted my Auntie Gina and my friend Jen and they both said it’s a good idea. That’s what some of my colleagues say too. Two years ago, I also planned to take up masteral but then it never materialized. Funny but my main reasons that time were I’d like to become a student again and so that I could march again :). Hay sus! But then, let’s see. I’ll really think about it.

Your House

Since I am currently connected to the net, and since I was not able to search for the lyrics of this song in the office because I am overloaded with work, I might as well do it now. So here goes…

Your House
Alanis Morissette

I went to your house
Walked up the stairs
I opened your door without ringing the bell
I walked down the hall
Into your room
Where I could smell you
And I shouldn’t be here, without permission
I shouldn’t be here

Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed
Would you forgive me love
If I stay all afternoon

I took off my clothes
Put on your robe
I went through your drawers
And found your cologne
I went down to the den
I found your cd’s
And I played your Joni
And I shouldn’t stay long, you might be home soon
I shouldn’t stay long

Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed
Would you forgive me love
If I stay all afternoon

I burned your incense
I ran a bath
And I noticed a letter that sat on your desk
It said “Hello love, I love you so love, meet me at midnight”
And no, it wasn’t my writing
I’d better go soon
It wasn’t my writing

So forgive me love
If I cry in your shower
So forgive me love
For the salt in your bed
So forgive me love
If I cry all afternoon


I was able to learn a little Spanish today, courtesy of my colleague Francis :). Here are some of the things I remember (I’m not sure of the spelling though): Tengo solo problemo, senior (I have one problem sir), Hola (pronounced ola, which means hello), gato de dumiendo (sleeping cat), gracias (thank you). It’s interesting and I am inspired to at least learn one foreign language. Maybe I should be including this in my goals list :).


I finally decided to publish some of my journals in the Internet. It’s not that much and it’s somewhat personal but then I just want to try this blog thing. So here goes some of the previous entries in my journal.


Part 2 of the long break is almost over…almost but not yet hehe. Anyway, I think I was able to do most of what’s in my itinerary during these breaks. Productive kahit paano.

I talked to my sister Judy today and she was borrowing money. She has UTI daw. I don’t know what caused it. I also encouraged her to continue her studies. I am willing to provide for her tuition but then she should really think about it first if she really wanted to. Time and money will be wasted if in the end, it’s not what she likes after all. I just really hope she will see education as important so she would have more edge and will be able to apply for jobs.

I also talked with Auntie Gina about stuff. We had a really good laugh about the joke I sent her hahaha. Oh I can’t put it here. It’s a green joke :). I shared to her my little knowledge about investing money. It was good to know that she’s also interested. I wish I can also share this with my family. Hopefully too, by next year, I can start investing some of my bonus in one of those investment opportunities. Hay…sana!

Tita feels like going out today but I had to pass coz I’m on tipid mode hehe. Actually, I really am. What with the upcoming holidays, I have to save enough. Well, there’s the bonus but I don’t really like to spend that if I can avoid it. And besides, I’m saving for my PDA! Yehey!!!
