Ryan's Birthday! December 31: The Last Day of the Year

Monday, December 31, 2007

Its December 31 and its my little brothers' birthday. Every year, we celebrate this event with our family. This is one of the days where we can all get together and see our cousins who lives far away from us. This is also the chance to celebrate the New Year together, since we can't celebrate this at night, we do it on lunch time. (mahirap kase sa gabi dahil marami na nagpapaputok eh. mahihirapan sila umuwi.)

I prepared and cooked Honey Gingered Chicken ( you can see this in my previous post.. naluto ko na ito eh.. maraming beses na.. sobrang mabenta sa family ko toh!) and Salisbury Ribs. I am suppose to cook the Fried Fish with Chili Pineapple Sauce kaso lang pagod na ako.. so we decided to steam it nalang para mas mabilis. We're running out of time na kasi padating na ang mga bisita at hindi pa ako nakakaligo.. bihis.. haha! Ryan, cooked his Yakisoba (nasobrang mabentang mabenta din sa amin! haha ako pa nga ngrequest niyan). My mom because very lazy in cooking since I started to cook so her share for the party was the Buko Salad. My Lola cooked the Seafood Palabok and my Aunt Rosie cooked "ngo yong", it is a chinese dish made of chicken, pork, mushrooms, shrimps, etc.

So the first set of pictures is the preaparation:

One Love

One Love

OST from Spring Walts

Song lyrics | One Love lyrics


Higher than the sky above you
Clearer than blue
Brighter than the rays of sunshine
Warmer than what you feel
More than all the wonders you see
It's the most wonderful thing

Brighter than the living colors of flowers you see
Sweeter than the touch of water
Flowing from the mountain spring
More than all the wonders you see
It's the most wonderful thing

One love...
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one
All we need is love
Real love

Marvel at the sight of greenfields
Amazingly seen
Watch the colors of the rainbow
It's a miracle you see
More than all the wonders can be
But there's more than that

One Love...
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one

Greater than what you can feel
More than what you ever dreamed
This is better than your everything
One love...

I love you so
Love is the beautiful one

All we need is love
One love

Memories of Yesterday: My New Hair

Its been a tradition in our family that we cut our hairs before the year ends. I don't know if others practice this too but most of the Chinese family do this.

I am having second thoughts of having my hair cut. The last weeks of December has been memorable and lucky for me and the main point of cutting the hair is to cut off the bad luck. I was thinking that if I cut my hair my luck will be gone too. (haha! parang sira eh noh.. worried na worried na bka mwala ang swerte ko.) My cousins and sibling kept bugging me the whole day to come with them in the parlor.

After hours and hours of delay, finally, we've decided to go to SM Manila at around 4:30pm. We've been going around the mall trying to look for a good parlor. (grabe! ang dami daming nagpapagupit noh.. tas ang haba haba ng pila) After a half an hour, we've decided to go to Freshaire at the top level of SM Manila. (doon daw kse ngpapagupit ung isa kong pinsan. hehe! nakakatuwa.. maganda ung gupit sa akin at bka bumalik ako doon next time. )

I love my new hair kahit na sabi nila na parang walang pinagbago! hahaha! At sa sobrang saya ko.. I forgot to take a picture of my new hair. Hindi bali, makikita nio naman sa pictures ko today eh. Sige, later ulit.

i HATE myself..

Its been 22 years since I came into this world and it seems like I'm such a big mistake. Yeah, yeah I have my friends but whenever I talk to him it seems like I am being torn into billions of pieces. I know I have my imperfections. I also make mistakes. All I wanted is for him to be happy. But I am not sure if his happiness includes me. Does my existence makes a difference in his life? Do I make him happier? Or do I make him sad? This are just some of the questions that keeps coming out of my mind.

"Love isn't about someone else's perfect person, its about helping you to become the best person you can be..", this is my favorite love quote since I was in high school. I am not changing him to be perfect. I am not treating him as one of my Ex. I just want him to shape up his future. I know I am wrong in rushing him but what can I do? I feel so sad and lonely whenever I see him abusing his health and it really, really breaks my heart to see him like that.

Few hours from now, 2007 is about to leave. Tomorrow will be a new start. I just hope that before my book closes it chapters, everything will be alright. I hope I will feel better and feel good about myself because right now, I feel so down.

Hard to Say I'm Sorry

Hard to Say I'm Sorry
By: Az Yet

Everybody needs a little time away
I've heard her say
From each other

Even lovers need a holiday oooh
Far away from each other

Hold me now
It's hard for me to say I'm sorry
I just want you to stay
And after all that you've been through
I will make it up to you
I promise you, baby

And after all thats been said and done
You're just the part of
me I can't let go

ooooh bup bup bup bup

Couldn't stand to be kept away
Not for a day
From your body
Wouldn't want to be swept
away awaaaaaaaay
Far away from the one that I love

Hold me now
It's hard for me to say I'm sorry
I just want you to know
Hold me now
I really want to tell you I'm sorry
I could never let you go

And after all that we've been through
I will make it up to you
I promise you

And after all that's been said and done
You're just a part of me I can't let go

I can't let go.

Jlo: here with me u have a home
Ll cool j: time is of the essence, why spend it alone?

Jlo: the nights I’ve waited up for you, promises you made about

Ll cool j: it makes a cat nervous the thought of settling down,
Especially with me I was creeping all over town. I thot my tender
Touch could lock ya down, I knew I had you as cocky as that sounds
The way u used to giggle right before I put it down, it’s better when ur
Angry come here I’ll prove it now (come here)

Jlo: stop playing, u gaming, I got to leave u alone

Ll cool j: I kno ur independent u can make it on ur own
Jlo: here with me u have a home

People make mistakes, to make up, to break up, to wake up
Cold and lonely, and chill baby u kno me, u love me, I’m like ur homie,
Insteada beefing come hold me, I promise I’m not a phony, don’t bounce
Baby, consol me, come here

Jlo: nothin u can say to me that can change my mind, I gotta let u go
Now, nothin will ever be the same, so just go on ur way, go ahead and do
Ur thing now, and theres no more to explain to me ya kno, I know ya game

All my pride is all I have
Ll cool j: pride is what u had, baby girl I’m what’s u have
Jlo: you’ll be needing me but too bad

Oh Well

Oh Well
By: Boyz II Men

Since you've been gone I've been lonely
Longing to be with you only
Maybe there's still is a way I could find you and say.. just how I feel
I can't believe that it's over
Wished somehow I could have showed her
All that was inside my heart 'stead of playing the games
You might have stayed..

(Funny just the other night).. I was thinking
(I wondered if you ever think).. about me
(I call you on the phone).. there's no answer

Oh well.. There's still tomorrow
Oh well.. I'll try again
Oh well.. Maybe just maybe..

Since you've been gone I've been lonely
Longing to be with you only
If there's a way I could beg you to stay
Would you please.. Stay with me?

(I was thinking maybe I).. could come over
(Hoping that we could finally).. work this out
(Even if tonight) ..we don't dont find an answer

Oh well... There's still tomorrow
Oh well.. I'll try again
Oh well.. Maybe just maybe..

(Oooh..)

If I had another chance
We would stand hand in hand
You'd be my girl
I'd be ur man
Oh well.. maybe just maybe we can

I still call you on the fone.. still no answer..
Maybe later on I'll try.. one more time or
Am I just a fool? To keep trying..

Oh well.. There's still tomorrow
Oh well.. A fool's what I am
Oh well.. Maybe just maybe..

Oh still there's still tomorrow
Ohhh welll
Maybe just maybe..
See if I bend on my knees and give you all of me

Oh well there's still tomorrow
Oh well I'll try again
Oh well.. please.. just maybe

Since you've been gone.. I've been lonely..

My Christmas Day!

Tuesday, December 25, 2007

Merry Christmas Everyone! I am very lazy to wake up this morning! I wish I could bring back the days when I was a kid. The times that all I'm thinking off is getting myself dressed up and play with my cousins. Err.. but its a little bit different this year. I am the one preparing for the dishes that we'll all eat. (1st Christmas ko na nagluto for my family! How nice diba?) I was a bit in a hurry awhile ago, there are a lot of things to do and no one is helping me. (grabe while I was frying the Chicken.. super daming beses ko natalsikan ng oil sa face.. sa arms.. sa mata.. mukha na akong ewan. haha) So I prepared Chicken in Sour Cream Sauce and Baked Baby Back ribs. (waaah! super nagmamadali ako knina hindi ko na nagawang picturan un baby back ribs ko.. paano naman kse lht sila bihis na bihis na ako mukhang ewan nasa kitchen parin.) My brother, Ryan, cooked the Spaghetti. (everyone's favorite kaya hindi pwedeng mawala) My aunt cooked Spicy Shrimps and Fish then my mom made chicken macaroni salad. It was just a mini gathering. My aunt only lives a few units away from our house so we decided to combine the celebration.

I'll be posting few pictures of today and last night. ^_^
