Fighting Evil


Win or lose
We are what we choose
Gain or loss
We all have our flaws
Good or evil
A constant tug-of-war
But we’ll fight
wrestle and
Until our wickedness
Is distant
faint and

Here’s to fighting against all our inner evils, big or small. *fist up*
Have a great weekend, everyone! 😀

The Big 5

Five be the things I am better of without:
Hatred, envy, pretense, pessimism, and self-doubt
Four be things on my treasure box:
Faith, hope, kindness, and love
Three be the things I’ll forever thank:
God, family, and friends
Two be the things that shaped me:
Mistakes and success
One be the thing that I’ll forever have:

Drops of Kindness


Even a drop of water
creates ripples
More so
an act of kindness
however little

Hearty Meals

In response to The Daily Post prompt: Live to Eat

Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?

Hmm… Given only a minute to think, these are where I’d probably have the best meals of my life. 😀

1. The start-of-term feast held in the Great Hall of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I haven’t asked the sorting hat yet but Gryffindor it is. Ha!


2. A classy breakfast with the Bennets and Fitzwilliam Darcy at Pemberley. Yes, please.


3. A crazy and witty meal with Dr. Sheldon Cooper and his friends at Apartment 4A. Now that’s interesting!

4. A homemade bacon and egg breakfast at Escala condo tower in downtown Seattle with Mr. Grey. YAY!


5. Hilongos, Leyte. Because home is where the best food and the best meal is. ❤ ❤ ❤


Lost Spirit


I used to be a modern-day warrior
A brawler in life, my own knight and shinning armor
A deviant at heart and a pensive thinker
Proud of my craft, I’m a real big dreamer.

But what is this? Feels like I’m in a cage.
Living a mediocre life and not as a sage
This is neither me, nor my comfort zone
All my guts and ardor, where have I thrown?

I used to be playful and ardent
In things that I do and things that I’ve chosen
Now my soul is foiled and barren
This is tragic, when did this happen?

I yearn I could unearth my long gone spirit
The fire of my will to bring out my zenith
For at the end of my long-winding road waits
A genuine bliss for the things that I’ve made.

This is in response to The Daily Post prompt, The Great Pretender.

Are you full of confidence or have you ever suffered from Imposter Syndrome? Tell us all about it.

I’ve scribbled this poem on a note a year ago when I was feeling lost. I really missed writing that time and I’ve got a job that doesn’t require such thing. I know, how cruel could that be!? Anyway, I don’t think I suffered from Imposter Syndrome (thank heavens!) but I guess I could relate this to the time where my confidence sank to zero. It was awful.

But gladly, I got back on track and created this blog. So now, I’m a happy girl! Have a great day everyone. 😉

Fright Night: Fears

In response to The Daily Post promptWhat’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?


In general, I believe we all have common fears: the fear of death, whether of our own or of someone we hold so dearly (God forbid); the fear of realizing our dreams– or not (reminds me of Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist); the fear of failure; the fear of the unknown; the fear of falling in and out of love… and the list could go on. As for me, a lot of things seem frightening. But most of it, if not all, are manageable. These are fears that I can deal with– after a few deep breaths and a great deal of courage, of course. To give you an idea, here’s a few.


There are fears that I like to stick around. Like my fear of death-defying rides and my love for such. To spin around dizzying heights at great speed, with feet dangling, heart racing, and voice shrieking in delight. Classic!


There are also fears that I have to live with– just because. Like my fear of streets, highways, and other thoroughfares. The anxiety and palpitations whenever I’m faced with road intersections or pedestrian lanes makes me stand stiff. Irrational but it’s something that some poor souls have to deal with day by day.

As for the all time cliché, the fear of ghosts and of horror movies and stories, I rest my case. Need I say more? Although, more than the sight of those vile creatures, the sounds and sound effects scare just as much as the thunder over lightning. Those moans, howls, hums, and that ominous thud which makes a preface to a heart-stopping scene. And, yes, my overly playful imagination is partly to blame. Oh and by the way, didn’t I tell you Temple Run is just as terrifying, too? Ha ha, I never really liked the thought of someone chasing me to death and I remember throwing my friends’ phones while I’m at it!


Finally, the thing that scares me the most. These little plump, soft, squishy, and squirty creatures are my archenemy— be it a worm, larvae, or a caterpillar (to think they turn to be gorgeous butterflies 😦 ). I’ve dealt with slimy snakes, those scared me too, but unlike them I won’t have to worry if it’ll burst the minute I touch it. An exaggeration, I know, but what can I do? I can’t help it.  *Sigh*


How about you, what scares you the most? 🙂
