I wish, I wish
I wish on the skies above
At least let this happen
It is what I have been wanting
I have done everything
And tested my beliefs
I wish I wish
That somethings are meant for me,
For that I will never cry
For lost battle I have been
I hate this feeling
Of this endless wishing
Take me to place I have been seeking
Hoping and praying that this wish would come true
I promise to be happy and never wish for something more

Poetry 101: Sea

I watch over you
As you stare into the blue
You keep tapping your feet
Don’t even know what to seek

Your thoughts is as big as the sea
Thinking about the things you wish you could be
So you wrote a message in that deep blue sea

Look at me now, this is the last piece of me that you will see

Dear YOU,
                I remember how you say our time is ticking, how fast earth moves, from one page to another we are already getting older. We were once this teenagers whose driving passion is to reach our dreams that we forget how to actually live in reality.
                We are packed with encouragement, drive, ambition, faith, achievement and wishes but we were not actually prepared nor even ready what life outside our school walls, sanctuary has to offer.
                Yes, we might strange for others, and it’s quite good and hard to be a bit different, for standing out in a crowd. Or for actually being alone in that crowd. In this passage of life, we see who we can trust, we see who cares for us, we see who stabs us, and we see who we can love and love in return. We see those things to be strong, to be brave but as time passes by we all have deep realizations, understandings that even us couldn’t actually understand and believe.
                Deep thoughts, deep conversations, at the end of the day we drown ourselves with questions we have never asked before, questions we seek, questions facing our daily lives, questions we ourselves couldn’t answer.
                So as you flip through this pages, I wish and I hope that no matter what life has to offer you, questions you have asked, you must always have that burning power to achieve the unexpected. It’s normal to fall, to trip, to get wounded as long as you have the courage to stand up and laugh at some of your mistakes you can do it! Don’t just cry, sit yourself in your room, dream the impossible, but instead DO THE IMPOSSIBLE, move your feet and work hard! Because there are a lot of ways to win in life. Figthing!

Whatever is written in this page, it is for you to understand that everything you read, everything you see, everything you hear is not about just you alone, but in what life and the world offers you.
We asked questions, tons of questions why life had been a little bit cruel, why it can’t be easy, but to think about the greater picture, because of the questions we asked, we are bound to think of deeper thoughts that we ourselves couldn’t answer, so why ask if we could just go with the flow. Take life smoothly, less questions, less depressions.
I haven’t been in a life we’re I have hit the middle age. But as a 20’s year old I have felt parts of my life where I have been experiencing middle age crisis even if I’m only as young as you are.
But I’m not here to discuss about the analysis of my life or your life, I am here to lift your spirit up, I know we all have this never give up, positive vibes in life, but is it enough to move forward? Is it enough to reach our goals?
This is not your ordinary booklet, nor a picture memory of the things I/ we have been through, but accounts of life that I have been writing for the past few months. Days filled with worries and fears, while others are happiness and cheers but mostly be wilderness and tears and some are just pure love and cares, mostly just a transition of my daily life J

So here I am giving this booklet to you, just to remind you that you are not alone in this life, there’s someone like me who feels the same way and I bet you know it. And to continue writing every memory you wished to for see. Accounts in life you wanted to achieve. So take a pen and write my dear friend! :D

Baby Shower :)

The Big Surprise!

Last March 30, 2015, my friends and I went to surprise our best friend and soon to be mother Roxanne! Our Ate in our  message me in the middle of my daydream to organize a baby shower just for Roxanne to make her astonishingly happy and surprised. I immediately texted my other friends for the surprise Baby Shower (Yes, Super Secret). As soon as everyone had agreed, we all went crazy thinking about the motif, what to do, what food and what gifts to bring! Good thing everything went well and smoothly as plan!:) It was quite funny when all of us almost ignore every text and messages that she send us "Aren't you guys going to visit me?". Yes, were all faking it! And it work!:)

Proper timing! Before our Ate message me, we already made a mini photoshoot for our Mom to be and thank you for timing, her Photoshoots ended up really well for our mini portfolio :)

Dear Ate Bianca Paano Ba To? :)

Paano nga ba to? I remember how I used to scratch my head thinking of the answers for my questions. Questions that doesn't have a direct answer, answers I wanted but I barely don't understand or questions, just questions just popped into my head and doesn't even require answers and BOOOOOM I pushed myself back into my chair saying "Paano ba to?". Then I realize, Nah.... lets just go with the flow!

In the hype of new authors, autobiographies, short stories, novels, fashion, make up, I was so hyped when I found out that Ms. Bianca Gonzalez will be launching her book titled "Paano ba to?". I always love reading her column in Philippine Star "Ten Things You should know about", I even remember when I wrote an email to her to convey my learning's from her articles and even shared some itsybitsy stuffs about the things I wrote, and it was one of the most memorable Christmas Gift I have received in 2011.

As a girl in her early twenties,I simply recommend you to read and of course buy her book! The questions you have asked, the answers you wanted were simply written as if you we're actually having a conversation with her (as if written just for you). It's just up to you on how you're going to step up, learn and move forward! Simply Paano ba to questions are answered.

I, myself had learned a lot from the book itself, even in just one reading. My highlighters had almost accumulate almost a page for the "Remember this Janine note I place on the top of my book". I never stopped reading it again and again to remind me that "If they can do it, I can do it, All I need to have faith in myself, and a little bit of magic, trust and pixie dust... teheeeeee

Saturday morning, March 07, 2015, I have seen on my twitter news feed about Ate Bianca's book signing happening at Powerbooks Taguig, 2pm. I was so excited that I went running down the stairs to tell my mom about the event.

From Novaliches all the way to Taguig, the 1/2 hour commute was all worth it when I saw ate B, in front of my very eyes, it was one of the 1 minute Kilig experience I have in my life time history.

Hellloooooooooo Ms. Artwork! :) I promise to be quiet while waiting in line :D


baby Chloe was also with me during my Taguig Trip :D

The felt doll I made for ate Bianca :D

that Keychain moment :D

That one minute encounter and my awkward pose!


at the same time, my "Chingus" supported me in my fangirling moment!
thank you mommy and jullian for travelling with me! :D

I have learned so many things and will continue to learn more! I will try my best not to focus on my self doubts and weird questions that is not even necessary in my existential. To always keep in mind to be positive and to find all possible ways to achieve that dream, it's okay to fall at least I have the strength to get back in my feet again and keep moving forward. It's okay to get trip basta wag lang flat sa face! (hahaha) Just like what she said in her book "Girl, sayang naman ang binigay na talent ni Lord, kung dahil lang sa isang kalungkutan magpapatalo tayo" Fight lang ng fight! Strive hard! Aim high! If at first you don't succeed try and try again! Ganyan ang motto! Hibdarahib!

Thank you muli ate Bianca! :)

Mother won't be happy :)

Howdy friends! :) How's your day going? I hope everything is going smoothly and well! I'm just going to share one of my happiest moments in this month of March :) Last few months ago, Bates Motel had engage every creative mind to submit their fanarts on their tumblr account here: Since I am a fan of Bates Motel I immediately created one of my Bates Motel art piece. :)  I didn't really know if it's going to be okay or not, I just did my best showing my sewing skills, thinking that I could let Bates Motel followers see my craft. As I was browsing my facebook account, I saw Bates Motel Fan Art Album and out of curiosity I browse the album and went crazy when I saw my fanart! I didn't know what to say nor to expect anything. I was just simply happy.
