Mind Your Own Business

Meron na naman bang bago?
Silang hindi naman apektado
Pati buhay ng may buhay
Kanilang kinakalaykay

You do not know me.
You do not know what happened and what is currently happening.
You do not know how I felt and what I am feeling.
I'm hurt and still hurting.
Your words behind my back are really offending.

At pag tingin mo sa kaliwa, paninira pa rin sa kapwa
Ng mga kalalakihang makakati rin ang dila
Kahit sa tawa’y mamilipit, tuloy pa rin sa panlalait
Akala mo’y may nakamit mga tsismosong dahil sa inggit

And what do you get from all of these?
Talking about personal matters of your colleagues.
Does it give you enough entertainment or satisfaction?
Your values and virtues may have gone someplace.
Difficulties that are not really your business
Your loud whispers only cause a bigger mess.

Kaya mag ingat ka pag sila’y iyong nakita
Ngumiti kang pang-famas ng di ka ma-broadcast bukas

Stop muddling with my personal life.
I seriously had enough strife.
Don't judge me as if you know me.
As if you are beside me when everything is occurring.
Tell me your thoughts, ask questions.
Allow me to defend myself and give necessary clarifications.
It has to be me who should do the explaining.
Not another individual who is unwitting.

You don't know me.
And lucky you, I chose not to know your name.
It's not you I want to condemn.
But your unnecessary habit to tattletale.
Shut up if you have nothing good to say.
Show some respect and have a little faith.

Dear You..

This is an article written by Cathy Babao-Guballa for the Philippine Daily Inquirer. i just want to share it with you :)

My daughter’s letter to the man she will love someday

RELATIONSHIPS ARE always a difficult terrain to navigate.

As a woman, you spend hours pondering—alone or with your girl friends—the intricacies of the human heart. You always hope and pray that the next generation will get it better than you did.

Below is a letter I found in my daughter’s website (I have her permission to share this). She wrote it to “the man I will someday love.”

I was expecting to read a gushing, romantic, idealistic tome. I was humbled instead by her sentiments. It’s filled with sensible expectations.

I pray that this will make every girl believe that hope does spring eternal, and even if your heart has been broken a few times, you can always put the pieces back together, and make it right the next time around.

Take your time. Don’t rush and don’t just “settle.” If it’s part of His plan, God’s best awaits you out there.


Dear You,

I will admit that sometimes I really do wonder if you exist.

There is a part of every little girl’s heart that envisions her prince charming. At age three, it is usually of a man who can save her from the wrath of an evil stepmother, wake her from eternal slumber or give her that true love’s kiss.

In elementary school, he becomes the boy with the least cooties, the one who’s willing to cross the playground to share his Oreos even if it makes him a target for the week of all the other boys.

Come high school, it’s that boy you stand with at prom, who your father stared down at the door, who provided you with an experience complete with photos you will cringe at a decade later, a corsage that yellows in the refrigerator, and a faded memory of a night that seemed almost too magical to be real.

Nineteen years into this life, however, and still unwilling to give my heart away, I am still that same little girl who hopes for her prince charming. And although I wonder why it has taken you this long to sweep me off my feet and whisk me off to your palace on horseback, I know that it is probably because meeting you will be better than any fairytale I could’ve read as a kid.

A couple of heartbreaks and a few years wiser though, I will admit that there are times when I question your existence. Because I have yet to meet the guy who makes me hear songs like “All My Life” or “A Whole New World” in my head when I see him does not mean I don’t hope that it’ll ever happen.

I may already know you or may still meet you someday—something I leave completely up to God because I’m pretty sure our story will be epic.

However, I can’t promise you that I’d make the world’s most perfect princess. In fact I’ll probably keep you on your toes and amuse you with my eccentricities—there are a lot of them. I’ll probably steal a bunch of your T-shirts and turn them into shirt dresses, or drive you slightly mad with my obsessive compulsivity and my need to fix your collar constantly.

I can promise to be your best friend however—that person you can rant to after a rough day, the hand you can hold when you get sad, or the person you can text when situations get awkward.

I’ll probably mess up your hair sometimes and hug you for too long, but that’ll only be because I absolutely adore you. I’ll bury my head in your shoulder during scary movies and make you feel like superman when you kill those flying cockroaches that really shouldn’t exist. I’ll cook your favorite food on your birthday and try my best to make friends with your mom.

I’ll respect your nights-out with the boys and make you seem like the perfect guy to my barkada. I’ll watch basketball or soccer games with you, and not complain when you cheer too loudly at the TV set.

I’ll know the difference between giving you space and being constantly there for you—even if it means sitting and playing video games with you or taking hot chocolate runs when it rains.

I’ll listen to your music and we’ll go on epic adventures together—seeing the world, taking awesome pictures, eating awesome food, and never running out of things to tell each other along the way.

I won’t be waiting for you to sweep me off my feet and take me on a magic carpet ride, because I know I won’t need anything like that to fall for you—I will love you for you.

You will be that someone to make goofy faces with in pictures, to lace fingers with when I’m lonely, and to take long walks under the stars with on the beach.

You’ll be the guy who takes me the way I am—and will laugh as I burst into Disney song or pick out pink wallpaper.

You’ll be that someone I envision a future with—us filling out visa forms as we travel the universe, picking out our first dog together and arguing about what to name it, or being snap-happy stage parents in our preschooler’s annual mini-plays. And I keep hoping that maybe someday when we find each other, you will become that someone whose smile I wake up to in the morning and the last one I speak to every night.

So to the man I know does exist, and who will help me maybe make sense of the world someday, this man I can’t wait to love. Please know that I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. But for now, I wait. Fingers crossed and palms held together, I hope that you’re out there somewhere, waiting for me, too.

With the hope I will be yours for always,


I just found it very inspiring :) I hope he is waiting for me whoever he is :)

Unexpected Cascade

You wake me up with a good morning message,
You never failed to put a smile on my face,
You make me shed tears when we fight,
Then you flatter me till the end of the night,
You notice the imperfections of my look,
You puzzle me on how I got you hooked,
You are the best part of my everyday,
You love me in every way,
You brought my world back in color,
You just make me fall for you even more.
