21 August 2007

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.

Hi Bianca!

Awww. Nakaka-touch naman ang post mo. Pati ako, naiyak habang nanonood ng video...and I'm in Starbucks (Chicago). Buti walang masyadong nakapansin, hehe :) Kuya's girl rin ako. Watching your video just made me miss my brother more.

You're so blessed with a loving family. Take care!

bhitzs said...

Awww!Senti naman ang post mo, teary eyed tuloy ako :(

awww. i cried after reading your entry. (havent watched the video yet. i had to comment agad) super heartfelt. palagi ko talaga sinasabi na sana may kuya na lang ako. kaya siguro naging close ako sa mga pinsan kong lalaki.

keep chasing your dreams bianca. :)

Sam said...

Wow that was very sweet and nice. I have a feeling your kuya will be your "standard" when looking for a life long partner.

May you find him and most of all HIM in all your life.

walang ano mang material o bagay ang makakapantay sa presence ng love ones. that's really the best gift that you and your ate can give. grabe super sweet ng ginawa ninyo. sana may gumawa niyan sakin kung nababasa lang niya to hehe. great job bianca and ate.

KrisAblan said...

That was a very intimate family moment. Thank you for sharing it with us.

To travel more than 5,000 miles, on the other side of the world, to greet your brother on his birthday.... very sweet of you sisters. Wow!

...And you pulled it off without he ever knowing! Very mission: impossible!

AMEN TO THIS BLOG A HUNDRED TIMES.
When i broke up with my first boyfriend, i was at home. Without saying a word, he looked at me, then left. A minute later he came back with a soupbowl full of vanilla ice cream where he crushed a couple of oreos (actually a LOT of oreos) and sprinkled it on top. He just sat there beside me as i ate my ice cream. He never said anything but to this day, that was for me the best comforting i ever got my entire life. =)

kate said...

aaawww. nakakatouch ang post mo.

for you, your ate & for your kuya...

Joni said...

Hey Bianca! That was really a neat surprise for your Kuya. Can't blame him for reacting that way. :)

Btw, I host blogs and I'm also a blog designer. If you're interested, I can cook up another personalized blog (with your own hosting) for you. We can maybe get the biancagonzalez.net or something. Free of charge of course. I dunno if that's something that will interest you (or maybe you're already working on something like that) But if it does, do let me know. You can consider it a gift. :)

God bless!

Joni said...

PS: We can also import your posts from blogger to WordPress.

Ah, don't mind me. I'm a supporter of WordPress. :D

Nakakatouch. Nakakainspire to love. In fact, it makes one realize how much she loves her brother as well.

beetledom said...

Girl, I sooooooooo L O V E the video clip !!!

Grabe, nice to watch over and over again! Can I request for a LONGER version of the video and feature it in your next blog: "my main man part 3?" o ayan, bianx, inunahan na kita, ha! he-he

I LOVE IT !! (bianca mode)

pau said...

awww.. :) You've really grown close to your brother. I'm not really a Kuya's Girl cuz we don't talk a lot(he seems like another person) but through what you showed me with your siblings' closeness, it made me realize how important my siblings are to me, even though sometimes, they annoy me, ignore me, and even, quarel with me. It's natural that siblings fight anyways right? :) Thanx for that lovely post.

funnybone said...

hi biancs (wow nman, feelng close din ako.lol) inggit nman ako s closeness nyo. hndi nman ksi kmi gnun ka close. How i wish din mkpgtravel man lng ako. khit s hongkong lng. ahihihi!

Hi BiaNca,

Nice post, i love it! Galing tlga!
i dont have a brother, be it elder or younger, what i have ay 3 makukulit na little sisters, and i love the bond that we have, i love it most especially when they come to me to tell me everything about them, anything under the sun, sobrang great talaga ung feeling. Nways, im really happy for u, for having loving and great siblings.

by the way, first time ko manood last saturday ng EL, u look lovely sa green dress mo, so pretty! and sobrang classy ang glamorous mo, also the way u speak at maghost, da best! keep it up! sayang dko napanood lahat, sa field kasi ako, have to work na. pero sobrang hands up tlga ako sa pagtake mo ng mga bagay2. like when toni and mariel emphasize ung comeback of kc, andun pa rin tlga ung pagiging compose mo, i love it!
pagpapalain ka tlga ng Dyos, u really are sobrang nice na tao.

God bless, will always pray for u...ja^__^

do you also seek advice about lovelife to your brother? what do you learn about love and relationship from your brother?

may boto at di boto din ba sya sa nanligaw, nanliligaw o naging mga bf mo?

thanx for sharing your thoughts!

well. 30 na pala si JC. you know what? i first had a glance of JC way back his breakfast day. I always watch them back then. he was one of my inspiration in how to carry ones self. Good looking, intelligent and a role model. I remember the time when you guested there (model ka pa nun) and me not knowing that hes your brother. How cool! Sbi ko you guys should have an article, something like "siblings role models", then in my surprise i read an article of you guys in Chalk mag. My crush and WAS my Role model (di ko na alam what hes up to e hehe). Kudos! you guys inspire people. Keep watcha u doin! Belated to ur bro.

Hi bianca.

It's very inspiring to see how close and how loving your family is. And its so great to discover how you value your family that much.

It's cool.

Keep it up.

I'm a guy but I'm pretty much attached to my elder brother because he is sacrificing a lot for us and protect us whatever way he can.

Thanks for sharing the video.

I hope brothers would be inspired by your post.

Take care of yourself.

zainy brainy said...

hi, biankee! zb here! just wonder, is that tracy (jc's gf) i heard saying something in the background, or is it you who's talking? cuz all the while, (while your ate & kuya are embracing) eh, ang naririnig ko lang sayo (sa background) ay.. "aha ha ha ha"...tapos a little later "aha ha ha ha" ulit ? yan ang trademark laugh mo, db?

she said...

Dear Binca,

Good morning. First I want to introduce myself, I'm Jerome. Well, I was touched by the video that I saw with your brother JC, when I think to his surprise you got yourself pretty surprise too, surprising him. I saw the emotions in his eyes on how he cant explain at that very moment, like many of us might had that feeling some part in our lives, thats the true meaning of happiness. Like in one instant you cant describe the feeling all you feel is your heart pumping and your face muscle starting to smile but wanting to stay confused, staring, smiling, and crying all at the same time. Its just how life is we cant seem to stay in one place, all of us, meaning staying together as a family, talking, smiling, breakfast, lunch, dinner, all those free time that we used to miss and those that we didnt mind.... now missing it completely. Im presently living independently now, if you can call it that, with my younger brother, at our parents place, that is even if we wanted to move out which I did, no body else would stay at our home. My parents are both in the states, and my older brother is in UK. I sure miss him a lot, I the middle of 3 siblings of which were all boys. My parents had their months vacation, and he was not here, my parents and my brothers havent seen each other going 2 years now, so I know how missing someone be.
Anyways, I saw and read your blog that you had bought a CANON EOS 400D SLR, that a good piece of DSLR. How is it handling months after having it? I will be starting in Digital photography as well with my 40D. Hope you find time giving me so helpfull tips.
Good luck!!!! As the Doctor would say... An Apple A Day. Makes 7 Apples A Week...

Regard,
Jerome Castro M.D.
