Hello, October!!

By Tin Gallemaso - 1:19:00 AM

85 days before Christmas!! Are you excited???

A lot of things happened last September and I think that I overdid my "claiming" because nag-pile up na ang mga activities for October din. 

WHY?

Actually, I won't be that busy nor would have a super hectic schedule all throughout October. The only concern here is the possibility that the most important events of my October '13 are going to happen on the same dates and on different places. As in super layo from each other that there's no possibility of making habol. Teka, bakit ba ang conyo ko?? There are some things I would need to sacrifice and there are things that I would need to prioritize no matter what. 

But I am not complaining here. In fact, I feel so blessed to have this kind of problem because not everyone is given the chance to get stressed for the things I feel stressed about now. O puro stressed na lang sasabihin ko? Di ako stressed talaga. Joke lang 'yan. Stress lang para kunyari may ginagawa.

It's been a while, super hectic schedule! I'll be an artista-like person again on some days this month. Kailangan na ulit magpa-book at magpa-schedule sa'kin. hahaha! Claim ng claim ulit for October and the next months! I wish that everything be spread out and not happen on the same dates because the fact that I can't be everywhere is saddening. It's hard to choose.

Thank You po sobra for all the privilege. Kinikilig talaga ko kahit hindi ko naman kayang puntahan at gawin lahat. hahahaha!



Is there something that you're also looking forward for this month? ^_^


I receive all kinds of messages in my Contact Me page from reservations, resume, favors etc. I don't get surprised with all the weird messages and questions I receive from some of my readers. But then once in a blue moon, I receive comments like this and I'm flattered.

First of all, kaya ko 'to ginawang Tous Les Jours dahil sobrang creative ko at wala na kong ibang maisip. Tous les jours is the French word "everyday" tapos incidental na lang na it's also a name of a Korean bakery and I occasionally post things about Korea too.

I blog to express myself. Kung paano ko nga sinusulat 'yung mga entries ko dito lalo na kung sa Filipino ko ginawa, ganun din 'yung paraan ko kung paano magsalita. Minsan nga iniisip ko kung bakit hindi ko na lang gawing mas professional 'yung pagkakasulat dito kasi parang mas okay na ganun pero wala eh, di ako marunong!! Hahahaha. But I'm thankful kasi kahit feeling ko paminsan wala ng saysay mga sinusulat ko at parang bata lang akong may online diary, may nakaka-appreciate pala. :">
Wala na kong tsinelas.

Noong nasira 'to, I really felt that there was a divine intervention that occurred. It was on a Sunday night and I offered something at church. Offering means I have to walk along the center aisle, diba? Kahit papano mapapansin naman ako ng mga tao dun kasi lahat sila nakaupo habang naglalakad kami sa gitna kaya sobrang thankful ako na hindi 'to bumigay noon. Kasi pagkatawid na pagkatawid namin pauwi (our church is almost just across our house), ganyan na nga 'yung nangyari. I kept on imagining what if bumigay 'yan habang naglalakad ako sa gitna, medyo nakakahiya kaya.

At that moment, I felt that He was just by my side. Hihihi. Nga pala, I have another memorable experience which I won't tell but because of that I kind of learned that I should thank Him whatever happens to me. Madalas kasi nagpapasalamat lang tayo pag may magandang bagay na nangyari eh, pero ngayon even if mali or may masama, thank Him pa rin because eveything happens for a reason. It's only your "reaction" that would determine whether it's for the better or for the worse.
My sim card of more than 8 years has finally retired and because I have a spare sim card with me, I didn't even bother to have my old sim serviced at Globe.

I was torn because I felt like I wasted too much at hindi ko napag-isipan ng maigi. I wanted to retrieve my old number together with the free texts, load and points pero kasi almost lahat ng contacts ko e nasabihan ko ng nagpalit ako ng number so whatever, maiwan na ang maiwan. Afterall, tama naman 'yung sinabi nila na kung gusto ko maka-usap ng ibang tao, gagawa sila ng paraan.


This taught me something about saving: We have to place our money in a secured institution. I mean, sobrang dami kong naipon na free texts tas nabalewala lang 'yun lahat. Ayaw mong mag-ipon ng mag-ipon only to find out na mawala ang lifetime savings mo. Nga pala, alam mo raw 'yung best institution para mag-ipon? Siya. hihihi. Mas close nga ata talaga kami ngayon ha.

This taught me something about letting go: Mahirap talaga mag-let go pero kailangan. At mas mapapadali lang 'yan when you look at your future and try to envision something better than the one you left. Hindi okay ang manghinayang dahil wala naman ng magagawa. Ang mas okay gawin e i-free ang kamay para may mahawakan na mas bongga in the future. Hindi mo malalaman kung gaano kalaki ang in store for you kung hindi mo matutunang pabayaan ang hawak mo ngayon lalo na 'yung mga hindi naman deserving. Goodbye, 64k sim card! Naga-upgrade na ko lahat ng bagay.

MY HAIR WENT FROM THESE:
My hair is longer because both these pictures were taken months before my haircut, I just posted these for reference.


 

TO THIS:
I chopped off more than 12 inches of my hair. E mas maganda naman ako, noh. hahaha.

'Yung totoo , may pinagdadaanan ba 'ko?

Bagong buhay na ba talaga itey? Life changing decision nga ba talaga itey? Haaaaaay. Di ko rin masasagot 'yan pero I'm sure sobrang sakto ng lahat. I can't say where this is heading because I, myself, don't know but I can feel that there's something great. Move on na ba talaga? Hahaa. Oy, di 'to love ha!! Sa love lang ba pwede mag move on? Hindi kayaaaaaaaaaa.


For you, whatever your circumstances are, I am wishing you all the best. 

Last,
I was watching "My Husband's Lover" when Chynna Ortaleza and Victor Basa's characters had this exchange of lines..

Non-verbatim:
C: Sayang...
V: Di ko ma-gets kung bakit sayang eh, hindi naman namin sinasayang...


KAILANGAN KO 'YANG SCENE NA 'YAN. DAPAT YATA NAI-RECORD KO PARA IPAPA-NOOD SA LAHAT NG NAGSASABI NG SAYANG SA'KIN.

Hindi 'to sexual orientation din ha. Hahahaha. 


NOTE: IT'S YOUR LIFE AND NOBODY ELSE DECIDES WHAT YOU CAN DO.

What may appear okay and what may seem better for you may not be the same thing with another. Why do you have to feel pity for someone just because he/she didn't turn out to be that someone whom you thought he/she will be? Okay lang kung compassion pero hindi eh, PITY talaga. Why do you even have to be so proud about your accomplishments? Are you accomplishing something not for yourself but for other people to praise you? 'Yung totoo, ganun ka ka-self-absorbed? Iba ang bragging sa pagk-kwento kaya. 

Why do you have to impose your ideals on someone who's already happy with how his/her life is doing? Why pull down someone who's trying to make things work especially when that person isn't minding your business at all? And if you think that person has wasted the most important thing on Earth, why not try asking her/him if he/she learned a thing or two? 'Cause you know, there's a great possiblity that what he/she has learned through experience is priceless and more important than anything. Or better yet, try to understand that the things you prioritize aren't the same.

Bakit ba talaga? Anong mangyayari if you're going to brag about yourself? Ugh, yayaman ba ko pag niyabangan mo ko? Sana nga pwedeng mangyari 'yan dahil makikinig ako ng makikinig sa'yo. Pinapa-problema ba kita sa mga nangyayari sa'kin ngayon? 

 Sabi mo masaya ka kaso bakit sa kasiraan ng ibang tao ikaw nakakakuha ng satisfaction? Paki-explain please. I'm lost. Hahaha. De seryoso, I really think happy people aren't those who try to show off that they're happy. Masaya na sila at hindi na nila kailangan ng external na approval, diba? O baka naman you really find joy when you compare yourself with others and you feel "superior" to them. Aba, kung ganyan, dapat din pala kong makaramdam ng pity sa'yo. Unhealthy. What you're doing is way beyond unhealthy.

REMEMBER THAT NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE WE ARE ALL FIGHTING A DIFFERENT BATTLE. MEDYO COUNTERPRODUCTIVE  'TO KASI IT'S TURNING OUT LIKE I'M JUDGING SOMEONE TOO BUT AGAIN, MY POINT IS YOU SHOULD LET SOMEONE BE AND IF YOU'VE GOT NOTHING NICE TO SAY THEN DO THAT SOMEONE A FAVOR AND SHUT YOUR MOUTH. HAAAAAY. PERO OKAY LANG NAMAN, NGAYON PA BA KO PAPA-APEKTO KUNG KELAN PA PARANG SOBRANG WORTHWHILE NA ANG MABUHAY? HAHAHAHA. NGAYON NAIINTINDIHAN KO NA 'YUNG MGA KWENTO NA MASAYA SILA EVEN AFTER GIVING UP THEIR STATUS AND LIVING A HUMBLE LIFE. SANTA LANG ANG PEG? JK.

I learned so much and I'm going to learn a lot more. Kinailangan ko 'yun lahat mangyari to grow as a person and that's not something one should feel pity for. 
Mas nakilala ko 'yung sarili ko, mas na-appreciate ko ang mga bagay-bagay na meron ako, mas nalaman ko 'yung abilities ko at higit sa lahat, hindi magiging existent 'tong blog na 'to kung hindi dahil sa mga nangyari sa'kin dati. E lucky charm ko kaya 'to!! hihihi.


Daming emotions, noh? hahahahaha. 


Sayang? Sayang your face.
IBANG IBA ANG COMPASSION SA PITY.
