18 Struggles Only Over-Thinkers Will Understand

Thought Catalog

1. Your need to find meaning in everything usually culminates into crafting conspiracy theories about what the period placement in a text means.

2. You end up making every situation in your life about 100x more difficult than it has to be.

3. You cannot let anything go, because you’re convinced that if you just run over the details a few more times, you’ll finally uncover some new understanding of the situation or it will somehow change the outcome.

4. You’ve probably never been sure about a thing in your life. You’ve approached everything from choosing a school and a partner to your outfit in the morning and brand of bread at the grocery store with equal levels of angst.

My top Wedding themes…

Hey guys! 🙂

I was actually thinking of a wedding theme for sometime now since it also play some important role for wedding preparation ♥ (considering month & date of the event, bridal gown, groom’s attire, reception & the facade of venue ♥)  modern Filipino couple nowadays are very much creative in planning wedding themes that will suite their preference and a theme makes a wedding more personal, coordinated and definitely elegant 🙂

aren’t you excited bride-to-be’s / groom-to-be’s ?

Now, it’s time to decide on one of the most critical components of your special day: the theme.

 

1. Shabby Chic ♥

Shabby chic items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas. It  evokes the type of decoration found in large country houses where there are worn and faded old chintz sofas and curtains, old paintwork and unassuming ‘good’ taste. The end result of shabby chic is to achieve an elegant overall effect, as opposed to the sentimentally cute Pop-Victorian. Pure whites, as well as ecrus and worn or bleached out pastel colors are favorites. The shabby chic aesthetic also expands to the garden, with the same design principles of using timeworn garden furniture and feminine accessories. Rose gardens are popular with the shabby chic style of decor.

It also emphasized the feeling of ‘distressing’ the finish of the vintage way in addition to a smaller amount of the feminine touch. It is a soft, relaxed, feminine, romantic style of decorating that looks comfortable and inviting…

So.. I’m imagining that if your venue is outdoor type or tent setup while feeling the nature breeze I can say that this setup is also ideal ♥

I actually fell in love with this elegant theme very feminine… but i’m more attached to Royal blue with combination of Salmon pink..like a royalty ehh? 🙂 ♥ ….

2. Romantic Whimsical 

I also want a soft and whimsical look for our wedding, very cheesy right? lol .. romantic whimsical for a lavish afternoon to enticing dinner candlelight is not bad for this kind of theme. Imagining a fabulous florist (I’m dreaming of Vatel Manila’s creation) did a brilliant job of creating a ribbon garland which was used to decorate the center tables/backdrop. It was a mixture of pastel colours, with salmon pink accents, and each ribbon had a different texture and design. It looked beautiful swaying gently in the breeze, against the luscious royal blue foliage of the venue, and the striking wood like pergola…isn’t romantic? ♥

Get to know Ashi, my second Furkid.

I was able to obtain my second siberian Husky last May 10, 2013 and her name is Ashi and she is the most escape artist, the most witty yet caring female Sibe among the four sibes that I have, she is one of a kind ♥. She is 3 months at that time and very playful 🙂 ♥~ we call her midget at that time.

She is light brown – splash coat  and was born last February 1, 2013 ♥

Ashi is from Calamba Laguna formerly sold by Mr. Pau Usero 🙂

I started to give her Canidae but I switched to Acana Pacifica because of high protein and fat content and she is actually doing good since she doesn’t have a problem with regards to eating dog food as she is not the picky eater type, she continued her dog food until one year or so..and then she got tired of  her dog food so I changed gradually to beef meal and that’s the dog food of my four huskies every now and then. Plus one thing that I also consider is the budget because Acana Pacifica is getting pricey and pricey and previsouly it’s only 2,259 then the market price now is 2,459 php in pet express and my four huskies consumed two sacks of  Acana Pacifica per month and that will cost 4900+ per month it’s that’s expensive though I can say that this premium dog food is recommendable and top quality because it is grain free and good choice for choosing the right nutrion needs.

The Runway

August 18, 2014

Let me start my story as one of the most homesick girlfriend here on Earth because of long distance relationship that I have with my love. Airport is one of the most crucial place for me ever since my fiance worked  as an ofw in KSA wayback 2010, that time I felt like I was alone facing the life that I have and yes it’s true that nothing compares if you are with your loved one especially everyday, every hour, every minute, every second and every night of everyday. As if I’ve already submerged myself  to him (every fiber of my being) let’s just say mind, body and soul. Every time that I’m passing by at the airport, I still feel the chill of sadness and loneliness and I felt like I want to cry, call me emotional right now but it’s hard to endure this kind of feeling.

September 1, 2014

Before I go to work every night, the moment that I’m seeing an airplane taking off I felt kinda sad but yeah that’s normal and I even imagined how many homesick wife/girlfriend/fiance are dealing with that kind of desolation while their better half are  sitting in that airplane. All sorts of communication are being worked on between us and I mean come on it’s not easy to deal with crappy net and gadget right? and in my account I really want to hear his voice everyday and if you’ll just ask me I want to see him every night before I go to sleep but that not gonna happen because most of the time we’re also busy and need to fulfill some of our responsibilities. I’m very happy and I even want to cry right now because i’m contented, last night August 31, 2014 while I watched him play clash of clans during our Skype moment good thing he’s not looking and I just sobbed wherein I felt my tears stroll down my face, seeing him like that; stress free without any hassle moments at all is priceless, knowing that I miss him so much cannot be replaced by anything in this whole damn world. All I know is Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. If i could take away one thing between us, it would be the word distance wherein I can’t wait for those days when I don’t have to go online just to be with you. We we’re strong enough to get this far and we are strong enough to keep going, it’s all about effort and sincerity all the way through…

Trip to Calaguas Island Camarines Norte: “Tinaga Island”

Hello guys 🙂   travel period (May 25-27, 2014)

I just want to share one of my wonderful summer experience  this 2014 and one of them is going to Calaguas group of Island located in Bicol Camarines Norte.

My colleagues and I went to Calaguas Islands in Camarines Norte for our summer trip and one of my officemates initiated a “DIY” trip for a change since we are also considering our budget. Calaguas is a group of Islands (whereas Guintinua Island, Maculabo Island, the famous Tinaga Island ) in the northern part of Bicol Region and it is known for white sand and rich sea blue color and for me Calaguas is a virgin island because you can actually feel the sanctuary of our mother nature; no telecommunication signal, limited power/electricity and it’s all about appreciating the nature and an ultimate escape from the busy routine of Manila. We we’re actually offered some package for Calaguas amounting 3,300 php all in by my cousin in law’s fiance wherein it’s all in package trip to Calaguas but my officemates doesn’t to go with that so we still planned our ‘DIY’ strip. Our motto is “Habang bata gala” lol :))

Going straight to Paracale we booked Superlines bus A/C for 550 php for 7:45 pm departure. Good thing Superlines bus has port for you to charge your gadgets lol! If you’re in a bit hurry to catch the time ahead Superlines is not for you because Superlines has total of 4 stop overs 2 in Quezon area and 2 stopover before you approach Paracale port wherein travel time from Manila (Cubao) to Paracale within estimated 8-9 hours travel time but it depends on the situation of the trip coz Superlines has couple of stopovers or you can go ahead for some other bus lines like DLTB and Philtranco they only have few stop over but according to my cousin-in-law who is a local tour guide there in Bicol for a Calaguas trip their port is located in Vinzon’s and it’s Ideal to take philtranco/DLTB if you’re bound to Vinzon’s port.

about superlines:

  • -you can charge your gadget because every seat has a two charge socket port
  • – their aircon is not continuously on a cold temp wherein it also cools down so hindi ka maiihi dahil sa lamig 🙂

Superlines has 3-4 stop overs:

  • 1st stop over Sariaya Quezon
  • 2nd stop over Atimonan Quezon
  • 3rd stop Sta Elena
  • 4th stop Labo

then Paracale

you just have to be patient and all you have to do is bring your blanket neck pillow/small pillow and relax lol even if riding a bus for freakin’ 9 hours is a bit uncomfortable lol.. oh hey don’t forget your gadgets as well 😉

alright! 🙂 so… as the bus dropped us over to Paracale, locals in that area informed us ahead and later we found out that they are the brgy kagawads who tried to guide us all the way to the port. We manage to ride a tricycle going to Paracale wet market & port. I don’t have the estimated fare but I think it’s 15-20 pesos per person before going to the port and going to Paracale wet market is also included. Brgy captain and kagawad in that place are accommodating 🙂

From Paracale fish port is minimum of 1 1/2 hrs trip to Calaguas Island but sometimes it will take 2 hours depending on the boat.

Standard boat Rate as of 2014:

10259311_10202826948089013_7035674656134844244_o

 

for 7 pax we paid 4,000 php for boat 🙂

breathtaking scenery of Tinaga Island…just as we landed..

 We stayed at Bert’s Calaguas and lolo Bert and his wife is very very accommodating they even let us stay to cabana for free while we are waiting for the cottage to be cleared out by the occupants wherein we arrived at the island on Sunday morning and so the travelers/tourist will be going home.

Rates for Bert’s Calaguas:

Tips:

  • If you are planning to buy pasalubong and other stuffs for your family & friends better head to Daet if you’re on your way to Manila.
  • UV Express Van from Paracale to Daet is 60 Pesos and tricycle to Daet City proper is 5 pesos and from Daet Market to DLTB/SUPERLINES is 10 pesos.
  • The Island doesn’t permit bonfire
  • To survive overnight in the island, you need to bring your food. You can buy meat, fish and vegetables in Paracale market before heading to Paracale Port. We spent 1,500 php for 3 kilos of liempo, 4 bangus, salted eggs, condiments, beer, 3 cigarette, fruits plus 1 gallong of water for 60php etc.  🙂
  • for mang bert’s resort they charge 10 pesos for every bucket of water wherein locals will be the one who will bring the bucket of water to the wash area.
  • Hike the hills and experience the aerial view of the island for 10 php
  • You can also ask the boatman if they can drop you to Maculabo Island. (extra fee will apply; 500php for the whole group)
  • Side trip to Paracale Church.

 

Going home to MNL:

We don’t have any choice because the departure time of Superlines is 8:30 pm so we rode DLTB busline and the trip stipend is:

I paid 479 php to DLTB Daet to Alabang route

501 php from Daet to Cubao

Good thing yung goal namin na 2,500 php DIY trip has been conquered lol wherein our total expense is only 2,300 php.

If you guys preferred to have all in package and you don’t want DIY going to Tinaga Island, I can also send you the mobile number of my cousin.

His package is 3,300 php per head and that includes the ff:

  • bus fare
  • boat fare
  • foods
  • tent
  • wine/liquor unlimited

~~~~~

the Verdict: Total spent for our “DIY” trip is 2,300 only! that includes Boat + food/liquor + Bus fare (back n forth) + accommodation   🙂

 

what’s our next adventure? 🙂
