my main man.




anyone who knows me knows that my brother jc is the main man in my life!!

aside from the fact na freaky ang pagiging magkamukha namin, (my brother insists na twins kami, but i just came out six years later, at nauna ang ate ko, haha!) almost all of my interests in life, attitude towards things and situations, dahil sa influence niya. course ko na comm arts, my job now, my taste in movies and music, my taste in clothes both for men and women, the way i handle pressures at work, the kind of friend and family member i am, the way i'm smart with my money, the way i drive, haha, basta you get the point! :p

i have this attitude na kung ano yung nakikita kong ginagawa ng kuya at ate ko, yun ang "cool" para sa akin. yun yung gusto ko gawin, at gusto ko maging. hehe.

at isa sa mga pinakabilib ako na ginawa ng kuya ko? passion talaga niya to see the world.. :)


clockwise from top left.. koln dom, germany, where three kings are buried! with his girlfriend tracy in gold coast, australia. feeling cold in heidelberg, germany, where jose rizal got his phd! steady in el nido, philippines. posing with ronald in bangkok, thailand. with his friends monch and pach at an actual real madrid game, in spain!

i remember those times na uuwi siya from a trip, every photo has a story, and he really would not run out of stories!! i knew from then on na kung makapag-ipon ako, i want to do what he did. i wanted to see for myself, the things, places, and people he saw.

ever since, dream talaga ng kuya ko to live abroad. a few years ago, he tried his luck in madrid, ended up staying only three months, but still, had the time of his life. (i remember making him a short film as a goodbye gift! we were all crying while watching it!!) now, he is living happily in san francisco, has been there for around two years, and he's still having the time of his life!

travel tips from jcg?

..the best time to travel is the year you graduate up to three years after.. the time that you aren't worrying yet about bills, or saving up for your future.

..keep a body bag for your money! and don't put your money all in one place. put some sa maleta, sa carry on bag, sa wallet.

..take lots and lots of photos. (and volunteer to take the photos of other tourists as well!)

..walking around is the best way to get around. :)

..you will never regret spending for travelling because the things you will learn are priceless.



we looove our schmoopsiepoo! (that's what my sister and i call our brother. sa 'seinfeld' namin nakuha, hehe.) definitely there will be more stories to come about how my loved ones have influenced my life!



a few days after.. nagpadala ng email sa kin kuya ko after reading this post..
saw your blog brotty!! so sweet naman. now your turn to travel!!!!!
 - your twin + 6 yrs


i wanna cry now. super kuya's girl!!!!

Anonymous said...

grabe bianca... super close talaga kayo ng brother mo.... nakaka inggit ung closeness nyo.... wish ko ganun din kami ka close ng kapatid ko :(

mheemsical said...

Hi ate Bianca,
Well, I have two brothers and I love them both. But unlike you, sa aming magkakapatid, walang magkamukha! yes, But we all love to travel.

Hopefully, someday... malibot namin ang mundo! Because wishes do come true!

loved you in Candy!

irish_joy said...

hi there! i envy you coz u got ur kuya & ate.. ako kasi, im the older one and i just got 1 younger bro.. but i'm so glad that you have them as your biggest influence in your life. and i believe that they not just your influence but as well as your inspiration to continuously do good things. :)
nga pala, i've read the other comments in the previous entries, meron pa palang ibang nakapasok na negative vibes.. kainis sila ah. di bale, insecure lang sila. just continue to be strong. and i admire you for being one. uulitin ko lang, pwede mo sila i-reject but you approved their notions about your blog and especially about you. hinde naman ako one-sided na tao, fair naman ako, pero
as far naman na wala kang inaapakan or ginagawang masama eh just keep it up. magsasawa din sila. and i'm sure of that. i just passed that chapter in my life. just keep the faith. i know you are. good day... keep smiling. tc!

hello again ms dreamgirl! it's good that you like to travel a lot. new places give new ways of seeing things.

ang aking travel tip - "take twice as much money and half as many clothes as you think you'll need."

god bless!

bhitzs said...

nice post! gaya-gaya ka talaga...sa Kuya JC mo! heheh :p, anyway good influence naman ang bro mo (aside from being cute hihi).

We should always consider our brother/s as THE MAIN MAN in our lives kasi they will never leave you,they understand you more than anyone else, even if some people ang tingin sayo bad, in your brother's eyes you will forever be an angel hehe.

I have two younger brothers and in every battle in life that i take they had been my shield and my anchor when i felt like giving up.

drey said...

hi ate biancaness =p
i really admire you.. super!

janie wanie said...

that was my first hint when i first saw you hosting, you are closely related with JC Gonzales

karen said...

hi bianca! kainggit naman ang closeness mo ng brother mo. i have four younger sisters. since i was in grade school, i was wishing for a big brother. i know that would be impossible kasi ako panganay. still, parang ang sarap ng may kuya.

like you, im also dreaming of globe-trotting. i still have a year and one sem before i graduate. then, i hope i could travel. well, dreams do come true.

i love reading your blog. it makes me feel like nothing is impossible.
good luck in your life!

God bless you and your family always.

hay if there's one thing i envy in you is that you have the money to travel and see the world.. pano naman kaming mga dukha? hahaha

question lang magkano bili mo sa cam mo? yan ang pangarap ko na cam haha

Rubz said...

You are so sweet. Hehe. At magkamukha talaga kayo ng Kuya mo. :D

mejas said...

ang sweet naman.. nakakainspire naman po kayo..

therese said...

sana ganun kami ka close ng mga sibs ko..

hahaha. natawa ako dun sa idea na twins kayo.. our teacher told us na there is a theory that left-handed people have twins in their intautero life.. pero nag vanish lng yung isa.. vanishing twin syndrome..

;)

Godbless you!

great blog, i love to travel as well! i don't have a brother but i have a younger sister. nothing beats travelling the world with her, kahit maubos $$ ko in paying for her plane fare okey lang, priceless yung experience!
take care!!

adrian said...

hi! one weird tip i'd like to share - maglagay ng money inside your shoes. put a cork inside your shoes (sana maluwang siya) then under it, put your money which should be wrapped in plastic. hehe. ginawa ko one time sa states sa takot kong maholdap. at least maholdap ka man, mepera ka pa sa sapatos mo.

Anonymous said...

Hi bianca! Thats good to know you're close with your brother. I have the same thing with my brother. Im very close to my eldest brother. We are so alike in evrything, music, views, etc.even looks din. He's like my bestfriend in the whole world. Kahit wala akong bf before, ok na un basta andun lang kuya ko. But that was before. Tragedy happened 4 years ago and he died.. It was hard for me to cope up. Minsan, namimiss ko cya, mga kulitan namin, etc. 29 na sana cya ngayon. But i know God has reasons why kinuha siya. I know hes now in heaven.

Thank you coz your blog has inspired me and made me smile today. To think that idol kita and close ka din sa kuya mo. I know how it is. Kudos. God bless! =) *mae*

Anonymous said...

ooh.. i like ur kuya, haha..

i really want to have an older brother myself!! haha, since elementary ko pa naisip yun.. but i knew na it's impossible since i'm the oldest, having a younger brother, unlike hoping for a younger sibling, mas possible un :) iba kasi un may "kuya", yey.. haha..

my bestfriend nman, she's got both a kuya and ate, kinda envy her esp nun highschool, haha, but she always tells me na gusto nman niya ng younger sibling, since bunso siya.. haha.. sabi ko switch kaya kmi ng family for a day :P

God bless!

I therefore conclude that you're a kuya's girl. :)

Tracy. said...

I was reading this earlier.. Napa-"awww" ako nang super lakas at nagising ang aso ko. Hahaha. Kakainggit naman. I'm starting to get used to wanting a sibling so much but knowing nothing's going to happen anyway. I've always wished for an older brother, but I don't think that's ever possible. Hahaha.

prince paranoia said...

wish i have that relationship with my brother...

badyheng said...

hahaha...very pinoy yung pix ni JC sa bangkok, i had my picture taken also with the same ronald mcdonald when i was there last year...natawa tuloy ako :)

kriann said...

hi Bianca! been reading your blog for over a year now. I love reading it, yours is one of the blogs i frequently visit. I can relate on how much you miss your brother kasi me and my brother are super close too! Good thing now we live together so I don't miss him anymore.

Anonymous said...

huhuh.. kakainggit ka ate.. i don't have a kuya kc..i wish i have a kuya to look up to just like you but i'm lucky to have naman such an amazing ate ;P heheh

she said...

i miss my kuya tuloy. :(

like you, i am also the bunso in our family. but i don't have an ate. only two kuyas. nung maliit ako, i super hate them. gusto ko ate. kasi super alaskador sila. lagi nila akong pinaiiyak, iniinis, pinipikon. pero as growing up, minahal ko na din sila. haha. parang napilitan lang e. :)

12yrs ang age gap namin ng second kuya ko tapos 14 yrs sa panganay. laki noh? kaya siguro nung maliit ako, hindi ko sila maappreaciate. yung wave length, interests, likes, POV namin sa mga bagay bagay, etc, super ang layo. sila nasa HS/college level na. ako, naglalaro pa ng patintero. but i remember, when i had my first suitor, todo bantay silang dalawa. mga guardia civil! hehe. dun ko na narealize na "hey, ang cool pala ng may kuya. at dalawa pa. love nila ako".

kaya lang sa aming tatlo magkkpatid, walang magkamukha, promise. lahat ata kami ampon. haha. yung 2nd eldest, nasa texas na ngayon. may family na siya, and have 2 lovely daughters. yung eldest, andito sa pinas. ang tagal na nilang mag-gf pero hindi pa kinakasal. gusto muna ata magipon ng husto. :)

ang sarap ng may kuya noh? lagi may nanlilibre sayo!! haha! konting lambing lang, ayos na. at ngayon graduate na ako from college, nagkkaintindihan na kami. sila na ang ka-bonding ko. sila na din ang main men (w/ my dad) ng buhay ko.

gaya mo din, dream namin makita ang mundo pero wala pa kaming ganung ipon na malaki to travel the world. pero promise ng kuya ko pag bakasyon niya ulit dito sa pinas, magaasian tour daw kami. excited akoooo! :))

hay. sorry. ang haba ng comment ko. super nkkarelate kasi ako sa'yo. kuya/daddy's (pwede bang both?) girl din kasi ako. :)

God bless. :)

p.s.
i PM you po abt sa kidslearnproject. :)

ang close niyo at nakakainggit ang kuya mo.

eSTARiray said...

hello miss bianca..nice blog..anyway, i'm posting for a reason..

are you willing to donate your blood for a prematurely born baby girl?
or are you willing to advertise on a self-funding theater organization for a small amount?
or do you know anyone who's interested?

please visit my blog..its for a good cause..

thanks miss bianca..i know you have a good heart..

eeennnaaa said...

aww.. thats soo sweet. i wish i had a kuya and an ate. hehe. =)

great travel tips!! i definitely wanna travel after i graduate.. 8->

also, when you travel.. you should try local delicacies!! it's definitely about the FOOOOD.. for me at least.. rather than just sticking to fastfood like mcdonald's and kfc. hehehe. eat like the locals do.. i think that's how you truly experience the place.. =)

diana said...

hi ate bianca.i really like reading your blog. bukod sa mga inspirational messages mo, may mga similarities din yung mga readers sayo.

like me...close din ako sa kuya ko. and grabe din ang influence niya sa akin..sa music, sa arts at pag may problema ako sa school, sa kanya ako tumatakbo. hehe:) share lang. :)

God bless! :)

i have always admired the closeness you have with your bro...

by the way, have you ever thought of writing a book? i will be the first one to get a copy and recommend it to my friends...

you have very intelligent views about life....and about things..i just wish you'll write more frequently...coz your thoughts are refreshing....

more power and God Bless....

Eileenie said...

your kuya looked familiar and i had to think about it for a moment in silence... hes the guy from SPEAK OUT on TFC right? kaya pala now i realize may mga similarities nga kayo. and thats how i am with my older brother also, i soooo look up to him (music, car, movies, etc). =)

mheemsical said...

hi bianca, I am back.
Well, this comment makes me comeback to the first time na nabasa ko yung blog mo. 2003 pa nun, wala pang nagcocomment sa yo... at sa palagay ko, ako pa lang yata ang may alam nito. hehe, That time, kahit na gusto kong magcomment, nahihiya ako... kasi kitang kita mo. Kaya, basa lang ako ng basa. Ngayon, ang dami nang nagcocommnet, How I wish, nagcomment ako nun, para napansin mo... ngayon kasi... ang hirap na because you are super busy na and super hectic na ng sked mo.

Anyway, I just hope to read more of your entries in the future. And as always, I'll always be your number 1 reader!

hi! nice blog...can't help but comment on this one kasi i remember our college days and we would watch Breakfast to see your kuya! I could say, he's a really nice man kasi as a birthday gift for our friend, we actually called him after the show (it was along distance call as we are from Iloilo then!)pra magkausap sila and he did talk to her only naputol kasi naubusan ng load! haha!! but it really showed na mabait cya and very accommodating...keep on writing! see you around here!!! ;)
