Simple Living.

Of ginabots and puso :)

The title says it all. But the phrase “Simple living” still depends on the person, like living in an average house may be simple for one but not for some and it may be grand for one or not for some. (Well, that kind of thing.) And now that I’m living on my own, I get to do everything on my own. Yes, you read it right I’m living on my own now, in a dormitory like a college student. The usual problem is where to eat and my office is situated in an a highly-urbanized-area (if there’s such a word) so restaurants, fast-food chains, and cafés are all over the area but dining out every day every meal is draining too, financially. But aside from those fancy restaurants, if you’ll just look around, go beyond streets, corner to corner there are those that you call the “pungko-pungko”. (The cebuano term may not be familiar to most but I won’t explain it here but rather read this separate post fromZeroThreeTwo.)

Yes, I admit I am a bit picky, but now that I get to experience the independent-kind-of-life, I learned a lot. Today marks the third time I ate in a pungko-pungko, yes third (a friend of mine even said I missed 1/3 of my life. LOL). But today was different, it felt different as I saw an old man, a construction worker, as I sat across him in the table watching him eat his lunch while I was also busy eating my 25-peso-meal. I kept on thinking about how he tried to budget his daily allowance by just buying real cheap street food and brought a tub of rice (used ice cream tub) while I have bills in my pocket, and ate in a fancy coffee shop for breakfast this morning.

I always kept in mind that I live a simple life. I wasn’t born well-off but I have a happy family that supports me all the way, a simple house to live in and I just got the job that I really like, I can buy the things that I need and the stuff that I want, simple as that. But looking at that old man, it made me realize it reminded me that I am blessed in every way. I may not know everything about that old man and I cannot just simply help him in any way. I may have felt bad about him that I tend to forget about the simple life and be blinded by those fancy useless stuff but it’s also good to reward oneself once in a while for the hard work, but it was a reminder that I should always be thankful, thankful in many ways no matter what the situation is and no matter how you think life is unfair to you. I am blessed and forever will be.

Tough.

Yes, I admit it has been really tough for me. What is it about? I just have to censor that out for the mean time. All I got to do now is be thankful for everything, be thankful for what I have. I’m now in the verge of something I don’t know, really. So my posts now are just some babbles and shiz. It’s kind of my way of venting out. Life is still beautiful. 

Staying positive,

Cherry.

February

So, here I am again trying hard to update this little blog from time to time since I just can’t simply do it every day like before. Oh well, what I’m trying to do now is to update this at least, at least once a month using my Instagram photos. I’m starting this February as what the title says. LOL

From leftmost top to bottom:

01 - Comfort food for the poor soul. Really! That was doomsday!

03 – Look who’s playing with Marsha on a lazy Sunday? :p

04 – Pizza and Bolognese. Good food, good food! Hearts on pizzahut!

05 – That;s MY KFC MAN-SIZED MEAL. Hohoho BIG appetite.

06 – My 11am breakfast at VAMA Motors café.

09 – I just murdered Sbuck’s chocolate waffle. A late-night-snack after the project making.

14 – Oh hearts’ day. And what was he trying to do? HAHA He wrapped himself up as his v-day gift.

15 – I just love the weather.

15 – The beach was just calling my name.

15 – See! Urgh.

16 – This little Thunder missed me J

19 – Another late night sweets cravings.

20 – It was a gloomy day.

23 – Yes, I loved that watch. Bye!

24 – Die zombie, die on a Sunday!

27 – No sleep, must have coo-oo-ffee-eee!

So far, that’s my February. Nothing much happened, all “stress” actually but I won’t iterate on that anymore. Projects and all. But goodbye to those. HAHA My group made it ‘till the end, thank God! J

LIFE is Beautiful 
A simple phrase that kept me going for the past few months.
Yes I am well aware that my little blog page isn’t active for the past few months even though I kept on saying to myself that I’ll update this every now and then for memory’s sake yet I fail to do so. 
Going back in 2012, all the adventures I had taught me a lot and I hope I’ll be able to apply those lessons learned for the years to come. And from that I can say yes, life is indeed beautiful, from all those blissful moments to those perplexing times of my life. And no matter how tough the challenges I faced, I still managed to stand back up, head high, feet on the ground and smile. For I know God gives the hardest battles to His strongest soldiers. 
I was and will be facing other challenges for this year and I know I am ready for every battle I’ll face for I am well equipped physically, emotionally and spiritually. Life is indeed beautiful!
