At this moment, I am still stuck in a phase where my mind grasps the thought that I cannot ask the driver for a student fare anymore and that, I will now enter the so-called real world.
This is so late to post but it’s never too late. Huh? What ami I saying? Hahaha
This time, I’m going to feature Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. I’ve been here two times already and even if I come back here everyday, I’ll never get used to the foods they serve. They are just too good to be resisted.
Apple Iced Tea
I didn’t get to take a picture of their Cheesy Ham and Cheese Melt. Oh boy it’s so good! The cheese really melts in my mouth.
VCB will forever have a special space in my tummy and if it seems that it’s too full, I’ll make room for it.
It’s been so long that I wanted to visit this place after I watched it on TV. Those sumptuous meals shown made me crave for this. And finally, I got to visit 14Four Cafe. At last! Actually, I’ve been here two times already. The first time was when I’m with my boyfriend and the second was when I’m with my boyfriend (again), his mom, my mom, our mom’s friend, and my sister.
14 Four Tapa
Country Fried Chicken
I’ve never tasted chicken like this before. It’s soooo good!
Aligue and Tuyo Pasta
This is one of the dishes I wanted to try since I read many reviews that this is good. Well, to be honest, I didn’t like the pasta. (please don’t get mad at me 14Four Cafe) maybe it’s not just my type. I’m not a seafood lover. I guess I didn’t get what I expected. But my boyfriend loves it!
Sesame Crusted Dory
If only I had the chance not to try it, I wouldn’t. I really didn’t like this. But like what I said, I’m not a fan of seafood so it’s really not my taste. And I don’t like cucumber, maybe that’s why I didn’t eat it lol. Although, my mom and her friends loved it.
Cinnamon Bun Pancakes
Amaretto French Toast
Oh m gee! This has got to be my favorite of all! I love it to bits! Enough said
And the first thing and main reason I fell in love with the café is the place itself! It’s like a hidden paradise perfect for a getaway. I’ll definitely go back here.
Why would you date someone if you don’t have any plans on marrying that person?
What?! For fun? To forget the person who broke your heart? Or just for the sake of having a boyfriend/girlfriend? Well, if your answer either lies on the choices stated there or not, that’s opposite to marriage, then you’re just making yourself look like a fool. Why did I say that? Because it’s simply a waste of time.
You might think that I’m too harsh for saying that or I don’t have any rights to do so but, that is just my opinion. I just want to express how I feel about this matter so please don’t blame me if I’m against dating without serious intentions.
Being in a relationship is not a joke. It requires two persons who feel the same way with each other and are committed to one another. Relationship is not about fame. It’s not about the status. It’s not about running out of time or for using someone to seal the holes of your damaged heart. And most importantly, it’s not for fun!
Relationship is about commitments. It has to work for good, and by for good, it means forever. Even if forever seems impossible and unbelievable for some, still you have to. It requires marriage because it’s the best way to put God at the center of your relationship. When God is there, everything will seem perfect. So why would you marry your partner? Marry that person because you love him/her. Marry that person because he/she loves you. Marry a person you feel comfortable contented with. Marry that person because he/she is worthy of your lifetime commitment.
Relationship is about love. It’s about the story of two persons that give each other butterflies in their stomachs every time they meet like their first time. It’s about accepting what the other party have or doesn’t have. It’s about a couple who are willing to commit in each other’s arms ’til their last breaths.
In today’s generation, uso na ang lokohan. Walang seryosohan. I am not saying that all relationships are like that but I’m sure, most of the people, especially the teens today, are in a relationship that has no good intentions. And at the end of the day, they leave their hearts crying a thousand jar of tears.
Relationships should last. That’s how serious it is.
They say, when a man really loves you, he will show it and try hard to prove it to you. I’m right. I feel right with him.
Love, love, love. One word but full of meanings. Four letters but a million feelings.
What more can I ask if the one I love gives all the things I never wished and beyond the things I asked for? It feels so perfect when you’re floating in the air, surrounded by soft fluffy clouds and wishing time will stop when he’s around.
He’s been my Sun when I’m covered in Rain.
He’s my light when I’m lost in the dark.
I know there’s no such thing as perfect relationship, but with him,
I’m sure I can feel the perfectness in this world.
To be honest, I don’t want people to give me flowers and chocolates during Valentine’s Day, well, in any occasions rather. I’ve been this kind of person since high school. I think it’s a bit cliché when a girl is holding a bouquet of flowers and chocolates. I can’t imagine myself walking along our University holding a bouquet (well, okay fine, I’ve imagined it once or twice before hahaha). Yes it’s sweet and romantic, but I find it awkward, seriously. I’d rather have a one-stem tulip than a bouquet.
When we’re talking about the people he saw on his way home, holding a bunch of bouquets, I just laughed and told him LOL. So mainstream. And he answered I know right? I just added if you’re planning to give me a bouquet and chocolates, don’t you dare do it on the next Valentine’s. And he just answered okay, next Valentine’s. Little did I know, there’s something going on.
He surprised me. I thought we’re not going to see each other this Valentine’s Day but here he was, waiting outside our gate, holding a bouquet and chocolates. What did I do? You wouldn’t believe me if I tell you I didn’t open the gate immediately. When I saw him, I was so starstruck. I didn’t know what to do. And of course I laughed. Remembering our conversation before about the flowers. He, too, laughed at it. Hahaha
Remember the time when we saw a guy on the train holding a bouquet and you asked me if I could do that? I just want to prove to you that I can bring a bouquet in public and travel far to give it to you.
That’s one of the sweetest things I heard from him but babe, you don’t have to do that. You don’t have to prove anything because I can feel that you’re sincere. Like what the song says, you will always be the exception. You’re the one I need, not the the things you can give.
If you want to know more of the details of the story. Read it here.
But my perceptions on bouquets and chocolates changed. It feels good when someone special gives you those things. Nothing can replace the happiness you feel when you’re in love and very much thankful.
Someone told me to wait.
But I think, I’ve waited long enough. Long enough to shatter my dreams; to break my heart.
I have a lot of questions in my head that I desperately want to answer . Am I good enough? Every time I ask this to my friends, I always get “of course you are!”. I don’t know if they’re saying it because it is true or just because they are my friends. Although it gives me lighter feeling to take me away from my darkest hours, still, a part of me is not convinced.
Where am I good at? To be honest, this question kills me every now and then because I still don’t know the things I am good at. I’m sure that I can do something but I am not sure if I can do well in those things.
I’ve been living behind someone’s back. I am tired of being the shadow. I want to be the voice, not the echo. I have a lot of insecurities. Maybe if I can’t get rid of my insecurities, I will be like this in my entire life.
The point of sharing this to you is to let my feelings out; to express what I can’t express to the people I see everyday. If I want to stand out in a crowd, I have to be the best of what I can be. The picture above inspired me to speak out when not heard; to be stronger in times I’m weak; and to stand up when down.
I may not have the greatest achievements today, but in time, I know it will land on my hands. I know that we are all good in different ways. I know that we have our own expertise. And I know that we can be the best among the rest. I will wait until that time comes.
