Mid-January Notes (1/12)

By Tin Gallemaso - 10:12:00 AM

Already my 10th year of blogging this 2021!!!!
Akalain ko 'yon?!

A decade worth of my thoughts and experiences are out here in the internet accessible by anyone to read. I alloted tremendous time writing articles about my life that no one is asking for and I've been consistent at it for the past nine years. πŸ˜†

Why do I blog/write?


I'll continue as a way of welcoming new versions of myself that I've yet to meet and as a way of honoring my past selves that I needed to let go at some point but were part of the reasons why I'm here now. 

I don't know if this is even making sense.
In short, medyo magkaiba na si Tintin2012 at Tintin2021. Sa proseso ng pagbabagong iyon, naisulat ko rito ang ibang mga kwento. 

To my 2012 self, who started this out of boredom, it's 2021 now and this blog of yours has gotten millions of pageviews. ❤️

Thank you to everyone who take time reading this.❤️

Anyhow, I'm in my late 20's now.
LATE 20's.

Ilang kembot na lang e bye, bye, calendar na akoooo. Hindi lang ako makapaniwala na 'yun na 'yon pero kapag tinitignan ko naman mga nailagay ko rito, parang madami naman akong nagawa? 

HAHAHA! This is the length of my hair as this year started, I want longer hair when this ends. Sabihan ko sarili ko dahil ako 'tong pagupit ng pagupit. πŸ˜†

Puro selfies ko na lang na-upload ko rito sa blog lately, noh? Excused kasi akin naman 'to, alangan mukha mo ilagay ko? Pero healthy pa ba 'to, sis? O mukhang extreme level of GGSS na? HAHAHA! E kasi wala naman ako masyadong ginagawa at pinupuntahan. Puro update lang ng CGM (kaya kailangan may hair), maskne (kaya kailangan may face) at Denden's Baking Room nalalagay ko rito. 🀣 

Meet my Chungchung! Short for Chung Ke T. Gasin. He's a long coat Chihuahua. I'm still not sure about this but I think he's also an apple head. I'm not used to small dogs since all our other dogs are huge so holding this bb felt like I was holding a delicate fist-sized cotton ball.

I'm so sorry, Denden. Super qtpi ni Chungi Chung Chung Chung! 😭😭😭😭 


This is my 12.12 haul for the "beauty department." Hahaha. I've been busy last month to properly do CGM routine every washday so I haven't had a "proper" curly hair day since I switched to Zenutrients but I'd probably have time for it now. Ang masasabi ko lang as of now is I love the smell of their leave-in and coco honey conditioner. 

I wanna share this 'cause lahat naman tayo, bago sa ganito. 

Even if I'm used to being alone especially when I travel, I'm glad that I'm not facing whatever this is on my own. I have people to talk to and I have you. I want you to know that you have me too should you want to reach out. 

Walang emosyon ang hindi kailangan sa pandemic. Lahat valid, lahat pwedeng ramdamin. We're free to feel whatever emotion is it that we're feeling without the need to explain why. It's okay to be sad. It's okay to feel lost. It's okay to be happy without feeling guilty. It's okay to choose silence for days when you don't feel like talking. πŸ˜‰

Grateful for people who give me explanations for their behavior even if I'm not asking for any kahit sorry ng sorry. πŸ€—

SuJu yern?
Sorry, sorry πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Reassurance hits different when it's not requested. 

Hello, bhie. Ako rin. I'm sorry I posted this.
I appreciate you. πŸ™ƒ

As much as I love using my Busan SB Tumbler, it's not ideal to bring for longer drives since it's small. Salamat for this. Ibig sabihin ba nito may pa-out of town pa rin maliban sa Tagaytay? πŸ€” Jk. Meron. Since this is a scheduled post para ma-sakto ko ng January 15, when this gets posted, we're having the time of our lives in Antipolo. ❤️ Uyy, na-miss ko sabihin 'yan!
I've decided to upload/blog about my previous travels. Not because magi-inarte ako sa mga nawala sa'kin but because I'm appreciating them more - 'yung mga nagawa at napuntahan ko na. I know that Europe trip is not going to happen soon but this is me still hoping for that "one day" ❤️

Kaya may pa-key chain muna. Dito man lang, hawak-kamay na namin. Sayang naman 'yung Eiffel for you pa kung di mangangarap pumunta sa totoo? HAHAHAHAHA ano raw

Vous au moins, vous ne risquez pas d'Γͺtre un lΓ©gume, puisque mΓͺme un artichaut a du coeur.

This is a quote from the French movie, "AmΓ©lie." Went all the way to Century Mall in Makati for this quote on the wall just 'cause we saw the movie. How spoiled can one become? πŸ€—πŸ₯°

"At least you'll never be a vegetable, even artichokes have hearts." The cafe has France feels kahit nakita ko lang sa Emily in Paris 'yung mga itsura pero medyo Japanese (inspired) 'yung food. ❤️ Love it. Price point was more on the highend side but everything we ate were delicious. I loved the Hambagu with Truffled Cream and Mushroom, Squid Ink Rice, Queso de bola French Flan and Matcha Latte which I have no photos of. πŸ˜‚

French-Japanese theme cafe which definitely hit the spot!

I am challenging myself to post Mid-Month notes for the whole year (publish time to be scheduled every 15th of the month at 10 AM? Di pa ko sure HAHAHA). More selfies, TMI's, and random stuff to come, internet! Hahaha!  

This is the first time in the past few years na wala kong plotted plans/flights so anything goes. I'm allowing 2021 to surprise me. I'll live life and allow it to take shape into anything that will be in my favor. 

 I've set my intentions, universe! I'm claiming and hoping... πŸ’— 

Hiraya Manawari
May the wishes of your heart be granted.

I hope the future us are happy, content, and secure.
