minahal ka nya ...

Minahal ka nya
sa paraang alam nya 
sa paraang kaya nya 
sa paraang naayon sa puso at pananaw nya. 

Minahal ka nya 
tulad ng pagmamahal ng araw sa buwan 
hindi man nagkikita
nandun ang pagpapahalaga 

Minahal ka nya
tulad ng titik at awit 
hindi man lagi magkasam
ngunit napakagandang pakinggan pag nagtugma 

Minahal ka nya 
tulad ng mga bituin sa langit 
hindi man lagi nagpapakita
ngunit andyan kapag madilim na ang iyong paligid.

Minahal ka nya 
hindi totoong hindi ka nya minahal 
minahal ka nya 
sa paraang alam nya 
sa paraang kaya nya
sa paraang naayon sa puso at pananaw nya
ngunti hindi sa paraang nais mo. 

Minahal ka nya 
ngunit minahal ka nya 
bilang isang kaibigan lamang.

Ginuhit kita sa aking isipan
Bawat dampi ng iyong kamay
Bawat bulong mula sa iyong labi
Bawat alalang binuo nating dalawa.

Iginuhit ko ito sa aking isipan
Hindi ko napansin
Iginuguhit na rin pala kita
Sa bawat sulok ng aking puso.

Iginuhit mo rin ako
Sa iyong mundo na magulo't maingay
Sa iyong mundo na puno ng iba't ibang kaganapan
Iginuhit mo ako at isinama

Iginuhit mo ko at iginuhit kita
Hindi ko napansin
Iginuguhit mo ko gamit ang lapis
Iginuhit kita gamit ang tinta

Akala ko akin ka na
Ngunit hindi pala
Iginuhit kita at ngayon
Buburahin na kita.

Valentines ...

This is a day of expectations, heartaches, stress, and for the very few, a day of love.

Expectations for the women who hope to get something ... a rose, bouquet, a card, a video, dinner, or a romantic gift. Try as they may, the expectation is just there and when it is not met ... it leads to something.

Heartaches ... because you hoped for something that did not happen and that hurts. Is it you? Is it him? Are you not worth the effort? Have you been forgotten? I thought I was special? So many questions yet no answer given.

Stress ... this is what other people feel because they need to meet expectations and yet they can't. It's hard having one day where you just need to be able to meet something and though you try, you fail. It's stressful because even when you love, simply because you failed on this one day, she feels that you are lacking.

However, for the very few ... Valentine's is just another day meant to celebrate what they feel. These are the couples who are comfortable with what they have and know that regardless of what they receive or not receive, their love is secure and this is what matters to them the most.

Valentine's is supposed to be a day of celebrating love but it has become a day of expectations and heartaches. There are more people who are bitter about it and it makes you ask, "how can there be so much hate in a world that loves happy endings?"

To this I have to say:

To those who are newly in a relationship, enjoy but make sure you are not just in for the good times but more so for the bad times. To those who have been in a relationship for quite some time, rekindle the fire and remember why you fell in love with each other.
To those about to get married, don't let the whole brouhaha kill the love. To those newly married, you're in for a lot of surprise. Enjoy it WITH each other. To those married for a long time, remember, being husband and wife comes first before being parents.
To those who are in a rocky marriage, watch your wedding video and be reminded why you wanted and believed you wanted to be together for the rest of your life. To those who no longer want to be in a relationship but still are, ask yourself, which would really make you happy and follow your heart. Be fair to yourself and to your partner.
To the single ones, learn to be happy on your own. Learn to love and date yourself ... to be fab on your own. Be your own knight or princess ... God is not yet done writing your love story. Today is about love ... love for self, family, or someone else.

Valentines should not be measured in the number of chocolates eaten, roses handed, or the price of the dishes in a restaurant. Valentines should just be another day to remind us of how lucky we are to have someone because at some point, everyone has someone. It may not be romantic love but it is love. It may not be the love that you would like to have but it is something to have. So smile, say cheers, and let the love flow. Who knows? It may just lead to the right person, the one that is meant for you and if it doesn't, who cares? Love. Just love.

miss the kilig ...

I've been watching a couple of Kdrama and some romantic comedy lately. I have to say that as much as I get all the feels, giddiness, and kilig of what I am watching, I also feel sad because I miss it.

I miss getting to know someone and having someone to talk to at randome times until it becomes a constant. I miss going out and dating one guy. I miss holding hands with a guy. I miss the surprises and the letters. I miss taking photos. I miss the moments.

It's been almost 4 years that I have been single and sometimes, just sometimes, I miss having someone I can call mine.

L'Oreal Hair Workout

One of the things a lot of people keep forgetting is that their hair is one of the most abused part of their head. People color it, use a hair iron, hair curler, perm it, tie it, braid it ... the list just goes on and on and on about the things that we do to our hair. This is why shampoo and conditioner meant to treat damaged hair is on the rise but the question is, "do they work?"

L'Oreal Hair wanted to prove that their hair color does not damage which lets you color your hair without worry. After all, we want hair that is not only good to look at but also soft to touch and easy to manage. L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme ensures that your hair color will not lead to dry, dull, and brittle hair. With it's advance triple care protection - a unique formulation giving ultimate care and rich long lasting color - hair is stronger, smoother, and even more vibrant after coloration.

We had our hair colored and right after, it was braided and we had a Pilates workout. Talk about really walking the talk, L'Oreal Paris Hair Colorist was that confident that their product will deliver and it did. Colored hair can now withstand the torture test of the hair workouts because it is the only product that has a protective pre-serum that seals and defends hair from damage before coloring,, a caring formulation during coloration, as well as a conditioning balm that replenishes moisture and smoothens hair after coloring. If your hair does not feel protected after all of that, nothing else will.

It's time to debunk the myth of hair color damage once and for all. With L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme, hair is protected every step of the coloration process, making it the perfect choice for Filipinas to defy hair damage. The L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme is available for only P399 in leading department stores and drug stores nationwide. With over 20 shades to choose from, there is definitely a perfect color for every Filipina.

Hair definitely not damaged. Thanks L'Oreal.
