Amazing.

"She moved on, stop torturing yourself, stop hurting yourself. Accept it."

I was there, she chose otherwise. I lost, I will find it again. I can't help but wait. Until I can truly say and feel amazing...

Remember to Always Learn.

Read an SMS from Dyana at around 3am this morning...it's hard to be in a relationship without trust. It's impossible actually.

"I still make the same mistakes...". Don't. Learn and move on.

Cherish the great moments that you had with him, believe that they were true and sincere, what you had will always be there. But remember to always learn.

Waiting For...

"...trying to figure someone out takes up a lot of energy."

Yes. The author of "he's not just into you". A dear friend of mine lent it to me.

I asked: "Have you learned a lot from it?"

You Don't See Me...

When you think you're about to be fine, when you think everything is going to be ok, you get blind sided...again.

You become stupid, and hope for answers.

You rush to hope and slam into a wall of silence. Deafening silence. You break out into a cold sweat, butterflies in your gut, in your chest. Your mind races but there's nothing there but silence.

How many times can you endure the anxious wait? How many times until you realize, she's not there.

Time to Heal.

One More Chance! I think almost everyone could relate hahaha I think I'm Trisha and Popoy rolled into one! Surprisingly, I didn't find my tears...

So many things that I want to know, to ask, to tell you...I'm realizing now that no amount of words said or written can make things better for you or better for me. I was looking for an outlet but this should stop here. This should stop. The chapter is done, and everything that follows. I wish I was everything you wanted. I'm happy for you.

Be whole, be well...just breathe. Time for change, for growth. It's time for me to wake up. It's time to heal.

Passion Pride Family started out as my internal concepts and values that I believe transcend through our Lifetime. Values that you realize in hindsight, or aspire to, or currently living by. This is what these words mean to me.

Don't lose your Passion. Sustenance for the tired body, energy for the weakened spirit...Passion, with focused reason, fuels the desire to achieve goals, dreams, and allows us to hang on during 'impossible' times in life. Passion makes the good life better.

Closing Cycles...

"Closing cycles: Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because that no longer fits your life. Shut the door, change the record, clean the house and shake off the dust. Stop being who you were, and change into who you are."

-- Paolo Coelho

5 Secrets to Be the Best First Date of His Life!

Subscribe to Passion Pride Family by Email

I was given another brief for another article. How to be the best first date of his life! Unpublished.

1. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT or at least KNOW WHAT YOU DON’T WANT Though it’s hard for you to believe, guys take the time and the effort to plan that FIRST DATE, so if he asks you beforehand about where you’d like to eat or the kind of movies you watch don’t say “maski saan” or “maski ano”. Know what you want or at least know what you don’t want, don’t be afraid to tell him that you don’t like to have dinner at the neighborhood “isawan” and that you don’t want to watch Scary Movie 5, give him ideas on what you like and it can take off some of the pressure from first date jitters.

2. KNOW HOW TO ACCEPT COMPLIMENTS AND GIVE THEM BACK If he tells you that you’re beautiful say “thank you” and flash that winning smile, better yet, say “you’re not too shabby yourself”…or something to that effect. Don’t just brush off a compliment from him by changing the subject or pretending not to hear. “Bolero ka talaga” and “tumahimik ka nga” are not good comebacks to “You look good”. It’s hard for us to build up the confidence to give a sincere compliment, and acknowledging that compliment makes the thumb twiddling worthwhile.

When Boys Go Out!

A friend of mine asked me to write an article for her magazine...I think I bullied my way into it hahaha! She wanted an article about the different types of Night Outs for guys.Published in CHALK Magazine. Unedited Version.

“I’LL BE AT MY BOY’S HOUSE”. A typical boys’ night out, a chance to catch up about each others lives, reminisce about how things used to be when everyone was single, to rant about girlfriends, to talk about other women, and to get stupidly wasted in a relatively safe and inexpensive environment. Yes, I know, surprisingly, we men talk, and we talk a lot. Don’t worry, we don’t talk about intimate things about our girlfriends, it’s one of those topics that are off limits to us guys. Recalling the good old days when we went out whenever we wanted to, retelling stories that started out with “remember that girl…”, when life was not complicated by other people’s emotions. Don’t get me wrong though, we’re not unhappy, it’s just a venue where we can say “Women!” and roll our eyes after. This is where we can bond, with no one around, just close friends with your favorite bottle of alcohol.

“FRIEND IN TROUBLE”. It’s when one of the guys unexpectedly calls up your boy and asks to meet up for a few drinks. Problems from family to the girlfriend, it can take a couple of hours to a whole night. Boys use friends as emotional shock absorbers. Yes, we have emotions and we cry sometimes. We need an understanding friend who will listen in times of distress, and that friend is your boyfriend. There is nothing to be suspicious about, unless he has a different friend in trouble every single night.

Break Up Season

Break Up Season by Tonimari Santos. go to www.hulabaluga.multiply.com

It's been a very common, almost daily entry that I find this in my Facebook accounts.


"Girl" and "Boy" ended their relationship.

Although, come to think of it, this kind of thing probably happens everyday if not every minute. Sad part about it is, it's happening to most of my friends.

It's never a good experience breaking someone's heart and ending a relationship. I've always believed that if you think you can hold on, if you can still take it, if you can still try and understand your partner, then this should never be an option. In every relationship, most people say that the partners define if it will work out or not, if she'll stay or leave, work it out or give up.

This is what I do. This is who I am.

I am a STATE OF MIND, an ASPIRATION, an IDEOLOGY.

I am a CONCEPT that is made TANGIBLE to elicit a REACTION, a RESPONSE, a MOVEMENT.
