The Last Song

OMG, so since i had time to kill, i decided to finish reading The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. I couldn't stop crying!! Last time I read Dear John, I also cried!! When I saw The Notebook and A walk to remember, I cried!! Ano ba to???? !!!
I love the way Nicholas Sparks decribes/expresses the emotions of his characters!! I'm always moved. Plus, his books made me believe in love again..ay ang corny ko?? lol yes everytime i read one of his novels, I start having hope...i guess i'm not manhid and my heart is still soft when it comes to love stories!!! I really want to love and fall in love again but it's never the same in the real world!!!! Mr. Right seems to be in books and movies only. It's sad to be me!!! so complicated, so broken inside.... well not that broken, I'm happy to be single,to be headache and heartache free!!! :P
well, just wanted to share this coz now I have no more books to read!!!! I should start reading the bible more often!!!

ok, i'll end up this entry with quotes from the book

"Truth only means something when it's hard to admit!"

"We're not perfect. Any of us. We make mistakes, we screw up but then we forgive and move forward."

It's SUNDAY!!!!

* I was supposed to post this last sunday and I forgot so here it is...

Ok, so from time to time I'll have entries about make up which is Mel's passion and not mine since I got those freaking allergies. Thank God nothing happened after putting on the e/s!

Anyway, this entry is about my days in Iloilo city!! since it was a sunday when I went there, i decided to write about it now. Nothing is really happening here in Manila, but in Iloilo there's always some action. Iloilo is like my Las Vegas!! lol because it's the only place where I really enjoy going out. My mom would say that my sister and I are "homegirls"; we don't go out, clubbing etc... we just stay at home with the fam and the dogs. BUT in Iloilo, it's another ambiance, people are different and of course that's where I go out w/ my cousins!!!

However, this time I didn't go clubbing or anything like that. I went there with my grandparents so, I wasn't totally free to do everything I wanted to do. We stayed there for 4 days and all I did was staying at home, eating and sleeping. Well, one day we went to the beach with the cousins and another day we went to the cinema to watch Prince of Persia. Of course, I argued with my lola about her letting me go out to the places I always go to when I'm there. There's not a day that passes by w/out any quarrel between us. People think that i'm pasaway,rebelde or matigas ang ulo, but that's the way I am with my lola. I always say that na mana ako sa mama ko so mana din sa lola. I guess we have the same nature, hot blooded!!!

Cast away

Last night I had the feeling of being cast away for some reasons.
  • First of all, I don't have a DSL line here at home, so no internet whenever I want!
  • Then, the only chanel I watch here is abs coz they are kapamilya.
  • Everyone on fb is talking about the FIFA which I have no idea what is going on except that FRANCE is bringing us shame!!! But I can tell you about the NBA!!! YEAH GO CELTICS!!!! yah everyone on twitter is tweeting about it and right now i'm watching the game. Boston is leading 57-51. Hope they will run the finals!!! GO GO GO!!! Anyway, let's continue the list of my thousands reasons why I am cast away.
  • I don't know anyone in the neighborhood, so it makes me a loner! hahahaha.
  • I don't know how to commute, my sense of direction is not so good here and it seems that I have a really bad memory!
  • My Lola is super duper over protective!! So I can't go out whenever I want.
I can try to live the filipino way, but I guess I will never managed to adapt. I miss home so much and it's only been 2 weeks since I got here!!! I miss my bathroom, my bed, the food, the white faces ( lol), the beautiful people, the dogs, the couch, the buses...
I love the Philippines and the filipino people so much but it seems that "home" for me is somewhere else. I hope one day this land will be my home! when there will be no more ipis here!!! hahahahaha

Why Sun, Beach and Sho-Koi?

Yey!! Today was a sunny day without any clouds in the horizon but I hope tonight, it will rain!!! Grabe super init!
So if you wonder why I called my blog Sun, Beach and Sho koi it's because when I think about PI, all that comes to my mind is the Sun and the Beach (Bora!!!) .I hope that my entries here will reflect the brightness and the beauty of my life. Of course not everything is happy go lucky, so the Sho-Koi which is spelled like an Asian name but should be spelled out as "Shokoy" (which is an ugly male mermaid??!!??) represents the sad or bad moments here. This blog title makes me laugh!!! i luv it!! i luv the sun ,the beach but NOT the Sho-koi!!!

My first entry in the City by the Bay or should I say as a Manilan.

Hello World!!!
Yes, I am blogging from the City of our Affections!!! I wish I could write my first entry in ilonggo but I'm afraid it would just contain few words that I learnt from my cousins. FYI, I am full Pinay, half ilocana and half ilongga! But I do not know anything of the ilocano side of me. I am based in France and actually trying to get a BBA!
Anyway, this blog will be about my adventures here in PH, about my internship and my everyday life with the granny( lola ko)!!! ( yeah she drives me crazy!)
I miss home so much and I hope this blog will help me get over the homesickness!!!!
SO I guess the adventure starts now!! So much has already happened, but I reserve thoses stories for my next entries.
