my main man part two.
sobrang mahal namin ng ate ko ang kuya ko. as in sobra. as in siya ang most important man in both our lives.
with the help of my brother's wonderful girlfriend tracy, ang naging birthday gift naming tatlo sa kuya ko last january for his 30th birthday? two warm bodies in the person of me and my sister.
sobrang personal ng video na ito, but i would like to share it with you. itong moment na ito kasi ang highlight ng buong 2007 ko. :)
bilib ako sa sister ko who managed to take a video of the whole happening pa, samantalang ako, umiiyak lang sa tuwa the whole time. haha!
life lessons of a kuya's girl.
1. he is always there for me.
ever since bata ako, kapag may nagpapalungkot sa akin, kapag may mangyayaring magpapalungkot sa akin, he was never the let's-sit-down-and-talk-and-tell-me-all-about-it type.. he just always made me feel that he is there for me. that though he was not the type to give cheesy, brotherly advice, a simple tight hug would tell me that everything will be alright.
2. he is protective in the right way.
he never stopped people, events, or things from hurting me.. kasi alam niya na hindi niya kayang i-control yun. at alam niya na kailangan kong pagdaanan yun so that i will be stronger as a person. he has this way of making us feel na kaya niyang makipagpatayan para sa amin, and though he will never actually have to do it, knowing that he would be willing, is the best shield of love.
3. he has the classiest taste in all things.
whether it be clothes, music, movies, food, things to do, places to go to, manner of speaking, way of dealing with people.. my kuya has the best taste. he influenced me and my sister a lot in the "taste" department, and for that we are very thankful.
4. he is the reason i am in the work i am in right now.
if it weren't for him, di ko naman malalaman na kaya kong gawin ang trabaho ko ngayon. i am a really, really shy person, (and all my friends can attest to that) kaya it is a big surprise to me na kaya ko pala maging confident enough to do the work that i do. naging "idol" ko ang kuya ko na ang dami niyang kayang gawin, at yun ang naging inspiration ko.
5. he has big dreams and he goes for them.
sobrang cliche ng linyang "go for your dreams". at kahit never ito ginawang advice sa amin ng kuya ko, the way he lived his life showed it. he influenced by example. he works hard, and parties hard. (yeah!) if he knew that what he was fighting for was the right thing, he would protect the people he loves and fight for it until the end. he was never afraid to go out of his comfort zone and test himself kung ano ang kaya niyang gawin at kaya niyang maabot.
on the other side of that, he has always been so proud of me and my sister and our own dreams, and in fact, lagi siyang proud na proud na ipagmalaki kami. and that means the world to us.
