Happy Birthday, Anj

Yesterday was my birthday... My 24th. Compared to last year, this is actually a better birthday. I was at Puerto Galera last year, having fun with some friends, got really drunk and was trying to move on. This year, I'm in Tokyo, Japan for a business trip and everything went really well yesterday. The weather was great and seems like things are going just the way I wanted it ( except for the part that I fell off while I was with my boss because I missed a step ).

So anyway, lunch was at Hooters. I was so surprised when the Hooters girls approached me with a pie on a plate that says "Happy Birthday Anj" so, thanks to MP for that. It was awkward but it was fun. Almost everybody in the office greeted me a Happy Birthday. After work, we went to a Japanese resto for authentic Japanese food then went to Korean town, Coffee Prince Shop, for dessert. It was really fun!

Here are some photos!

Flying to T-O-K-Y-O



Today I just felt the extreme need to blog about this. Actually, I should've blogged about this last night but I was too tired so what I did instead was play Sims 2 then sleep. Anyway, as you can see from the title of this post, I am flying to TOKYO!!! woooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooooooooo

Yes, finally. You do know I wanted to go to Tokyo right? It's listed as one of the places I will visit in the coming 20 years. This trip came as a big surprise/blessing. Initially, I wasn't supposed to go to Tokyo. I was suppose to fly to Vietnam with Kath. However, a week before our flight, the business trip came up and I had to cancel with Kath. Who wouldn't? Tokyo is Tokyo and for God's sake. Not everyone can go there since they have a strict process in approving Visa.

So, my flight will be this coming Monday. How cool can that be? Plus, I will be flying alone which causes me to have mixed emotions ( I will definitely miss Kath, my travel buddy and soul sister at the same time, I am very excited to get there and see how Japan is like ). Wish me a safe trip!


It's such a surprise how God changes things for me. Last year, I did pray to get the chance to go to Tokyo. I also prayed for a travel abroad even for just 3-4 days ( Just so I can already claim myself a "traveler" since I've been travelling around the Philippines lately ). But God granted me more than what I have expected. He granted me a trip abroad, where in I would be able to go to a country that I have always wanted to go to. Not just that. It's a business trip... so you know what I mean. And... the trip is not just for 4 days. I'm staying there from May 21st to June 30th. And my birthday is on May 23rd which will make my 24th birthday quite different since it's the first time that I wouldn't get to celebrate with my family. God has a reason why he suddenly gave this blessing to me. Whatever His plans are, I know it's the perfect plan for Me. Just for me.

Free Your Mind

It's a Monday, Anj. Let go of the pessimism. Let go of the hurt. Let go of what makes you unhappy. Life is too short. Forgive. Forget. Move on. If other people had treated you in a way that you are not comfortable with, pray for them that they may be enlightened. If you think you have been judged unfairly, pray that they will see the truth about you in God's perfect time.

There is a reason for everything that happens.

I am often left misunderstood or judged. Sometimes, it’s ok. In some days, it’s not. I do not understand but I guess that’s how life goes.
I admit for a fact that I am not a perfect person and I already stopped trying to be. It’s not like I am at the brink of doing bad things but what I meant was I have accepted the fact that I can never be too good or too bad the same way in everybody’s eyes. No matter how good I try to be, others will still see bad things in me, regardless if those bad things does exist in me or not or if that was how they perceive things. And no matter how bad I am, some people will always see the good in me even if I hide it.
Today had been a whirlwind of thoughts for the main reason that I am being judged in a way that I don’t want to be judged. I do not understand how some people  don’t see things in a lighter way than I do. And why others take it so negatively that they had to tell me what to do. And did they ever ask what was going through my mind? No. They just said what they wanted to say. Should I explain myself? No. Simply because no matter how hard I explain, they still have that perception in their heads and I will just appear defensive. And no, I’m not gonna let myself appear defensive because there is nothing to be defensive about.
In my opinion, people should care but they should also ask. At least what I am going through. At least what I have in mind before bombarding me with pessimism about my own personality. Let’s keep it real. I know myself, you don’t. And friendship maybe is an excuse to judge someone. It’s like I have the right to tell this to you because I’m your friend. Seriously? Been there, done that. And really, it’s not helpful. It creates damages. Specially to the person you are referring to.

Golden Week

I thought this week will be really boring. No plans. Just at home watching all my favorite TV shows. But then, all of  a sudden, Mom and Papa planned an outing for the family since my sister won't be working on May 1st due to the Labor Day. Anyway, we went to La Vista in Pansol, Laguna. We've been there years back, when my brother was just a year or two. Now, he's already 12. Nice! haha. Also, this became the perfect chance for  me to test if I can still swim. And yes, I still can. :) Here are some of the pics from our outing. <3

Sleepy Heads!
