random quarter life crisis ramblings.


i’m 25!

grabe, ang bilis ng panahon. i sooo don’t feel like i’m 25 years old. that’s exactly a quarter of a lifetime if a hundred years would still be considered a lifetime.

i’m 25, and i’m happy!!

but, i’m in a crisis.

its nothing negative though! let me start by saying that. it is in no way any negative type of crisis. at least i see it that way. (at lahat ng nagbabasa ng blog na ito, alam na as a person, anti-negativity talaga ako, hehe.)

hindi ko kasi mahanap ang word for it! bored? hindi naman.. anxious? medyo.. anticipating? pwede rin.. the word i’m looking for is something that expresses this.. that i feel sooo happy, content, fulfilled, thankful, gracious, humbled, as in!! but at the same time, i know that there is sooo much more i can do, so much more i can accomplish, and that my purpose goes faaar beyond anything i can dream of right now. ambisyosa? hahahaha, wag naman sana!! more like.. inspired. ooh, there, i think i like that word. inspired!


inspired to write!

ang tagal, tagal, tagaaal na since my last post, and its weird, kasi suuuper inspired naman ako to write and there are sooo many things i want to share! i guess it just takes a certain mood and specific timing para makasulat ng maayos. kasi pakiramdam ko naman, kapag minadali kong magsulat, just for the sake of posting something, hindi ko din magagawa na iparating talaga yung gusto kong isulat.

and now, i feel that i can. (naks!)

ang dami dami kong gustong i-share, di ko lang alam where to start or how to go about it! haha. i’m having trouble with finding the right words i think.. naranasan niyo na ba yun? actually, title pa lang ng post na ito, nahirapan na ako. i used the word ‘ramblings’ to mean talking on and on and on and on. but if you look it up in the dictionary, ‘ramblings’ means more to walk on and on, more like wandering, but here, i mean to just talk and talk and share and share so i hope you (you, reading this i mean!) don’t mind just killing time with me here. hehe.


inspired by writers.

a year ago, i had a very strong opinion on something happening politically in the country. at dahil fan na fan ako ng tambalang failon at sanchez sa dzmm (fan na fan talaga! as in meron ako nung backkk-paaaccckkk! hehe. ganun ang spelling kasi ganyan din sabihin nina ted at korina. listen to them weekdays at 830 to 1030 in the morning sa dzmm 630!!) i became aware of the poem “tagubilin at habilin” that they regularly play on air. i posted the poem here in my blog (nakikiisa sa mga saloobin nina ted at korina!) and was so touched to receive favorable comments from readers, who loved the poem.

a year later, and just a few weeks ago, the most pleasant surprise left me ecstatic and smiling for hours!!



at bilang pasasalamat kay ka pete! narito ang tamang bersyon ng kanyang akda, napapanahon sa panawagan nating lahat para sa katotohanan!!


TAGUBILIN AT HABILIN
Ni Jose F. Lacaba

Mabuhay ka, kaibigan!
Mabuhay ka!
Iyan ang una't huli kong
Tagubilin at habilin:
Mabuhay ka!

Sa edad kong ito, marami akong maibibigay na payo.
Mayaman ako sa payo.

Maghugas ka ng kamay bago kumain.
Maghugas ka ng kamay pagkatapos kumain.
Pero huwag kang maghuhugas ng kamay para lang makaiwas sa sisi.
Huwag kang maghuhugas ng kamay kung may inaapi
Na kaya mong tulungan.

Paupuin sa bus ang matatanda at ang mga may kalong na sanggol.
Magpasalamat sa nagmamagandang-loob.
Matuto sa karanasan ng matatanda
Pero huwag magpatali sa kaisipang makaluma.

Huwag piliting matulog kung ayaw kang dalawin ng antok.
Huwag pag-aksayahan ng panahon ang walang utang na loob.
Huwag makipagtalo sa bobo at baka ka mapagkamalang bobo.
Huwag bubulong-bulong sa mga panahong kailangang sumigaw.

Huwag kang manalig sa bulung-bulungan.
Huwag kang papatay-patay sa ilalim ng pabitin.
Huwag kang tutulog-tulog sa pansitan.

Umawit ka kung nag-iisa sa banyo.
Umawit ka sa piling ng barkada.
Umawit ka kung nalulungkot.
Umawit ka kung masaya.

Ingat lang.

Huwag kang aawit ng “My Way” sa videoke bar at baka ka mabaril.
Huwag kang magsindi ng sigarilyo sa gasolinahan.
Dahan-dahan sa matatarik na landas.
Dahan-dahan sa malulubak na daan.

Higit sa lahat, inuulit ko:

Mabuhay ka, kaibigan!
Mabuhay ka!
Iyan ang una't huli kong
Tagubilin at habilin:
Mabuhay ka!

Maraming bagay sa mundo na nakakadismaya.
Mabuhay ka.
Maraming problema ang mundo na wala na yatang lunas.
Mabuhay ka.

Sa hirap ng panahon, sa harap ng kabiguan,
Kung minsan ay gusto mo nang mamatay.
Gusto mong maglaslas ng pulso kung sawi sa pag-ibig.
Gusto mong uminom ng lason kung wala nang makain.
Gusto mong magbigti kung napakabigat ng mga pasanin.
Gusto mong pasabugin ang bungo mo kung maraming gumugulo sa utak.

Huwag kang patatalo. Huwag kang susuko.

Narinig mo ang sinasabi ng awitin:
“Gising at magbangon sa pagkagupiling,
Sa pagkakatulog na lubhang mahimbing.”
Gumising ka kung hinaharana ka ng pag-ibig.
Bumangon ka kung nananawagan ang kapuspalad.

Ang sabi ng iba: “Ang matapang ay walang-takot lumaban.”
Ang sabi ko naman: Ang tunay na matapang ay lumalaban
Kahit natatakot.

Lumaban ka kung inginungodngod ang nguso mo sa putik.
Bumalikwas ka kung tinatapak-tapakan ka.
Buong-tapang mong ipaglaban ang iyong mga prinsipyo
Kahit hindi ka sigurado na agad-agad kang mananalo.

Mabuhay ka, kaibigan!
Mabuhay ka!
Iyan ang una't huli kong
Tagubilin at habilin:
Mabuhay ka!


salamat ka pete!!

postnote: aaaaaaaaaack! sobrang starstruck pa rin ako grabe!! i still can’t believe jose lacaba knows me! me!! and he’s read my blog! my blog! ayayay! the wonders of technology nga naman. great people reading simple people’s blogs, and all of us just inspiring each other. (naks!! pa-deep, pero totoo!!)


inspired to help kids. :)

click on this to read about them.. =p




inspired by time alone..

i love being with my family and friends, but i also love being just alone. (again, hindi ito pa-deep, masarap lang talaga minsang mapag-isa! i’m sure some of you reading this can relate!) whether its driving, walking around, eating, reading, writing, or bumming. “lola” ang tawag naming magkakaibigan sa ugali na ito, but if that is the term for wanting to just sit around, do nothing, settle in early, wake up early.. well! count me in, i’m a lola! hehehe.

enjoy talaga ako kapag nakakapag-biyahe ako mag-isa. i don’t know what it is about traveling alone exactly.. it’s a lot of things! the feeling of being independent, the luxury of owning your own time and not being pressured to do this, do that, going at your own pace, hearing yourself think (a good break from the fast-paced work life we all have), daydreaming for hours annd hours, reading and writing, and it doesn’t hurt that i was able to do all this under the beautiful sun and sky in beautiful mactan, cebu!



ahhhh.. super sarap!! talagang rest and relaxation to the maaax!! a gigantic thank you to my good friend pam, and her parents, tito ramon and tita cynthia, kasi they adopted me and i was the bunso picazo for that trip!

i looove cebu. i’ve posted about cebu several times here on my blog and all the time i say how much i love the place and how magical it is to me!! on this particular trip, i got to accomplish so many things! i got to write, i got to read, i got to try this famous restaurant ‘abaca’ (ayayay! one of the best places i’ve eaten in, you have to try it! great food, service, and ambience!), i got to meet new friends because of pam, and i got a much-awaited(-by-me) tan! hahahhaha. i love cebu. and i loved being with myself in cebu. =p


inspired to read!

ang tawag ko sa sarili ko, “frustrated reader”. that’s because i want so much to be like those voracious reader friends of mine, but i’m the type that after a few pages (and i mean few, as in two, or three!!) i really get sooo sleepy and just end up going off into la-la land! so yes, it follows, that it takes me months to finish just one book!! (pathetic hindi ba?! naturingan pa naman akong philosophy student! wa?? pano nangyari yun! hahahahhaha!) i’ve longed to be the type that can say “my favorite author is..” kaso pano ko naman sasabihin yun, para lang yun sa mga tao na nakabasa na ng napakaraming libro in iba’t ibang mga manunulat! ayayay.

but along the lines of being inspired to write, and being inspired by time alone, for the first time in 25 years, i was able to finish a book in two days!! woohoo!! (i know this might be normal for more seasoned readers, hehe, but for me its reason for celebration! woooohoooo!!) because i got to have time alone, and away, i breezed through ‘wrong about japan’ by peter carey. (again, celebrate with me, yaaaaay!! haha.)

those who know me or those who have read a bit of my blog will know about my fascination with the japanese. just a few months ago i posted exactly what japanese things (or people) i love, and so i guess this is why this book appealed to me so much! it is a very simple story about a father and son who make their way to japan, armed with their fascination for manga and anime, and the things they realize about japanese culture, and about each other, during their trip. nice!! (thank you to the one who lent me this book!!)

i like reading a lot (when i don’t fall asleep that is!) because i learn so many things and i feel i’m taken away to other worlds and time frames when i am reading! hehe. but aside from being a fan-of-japan, i think i loved reading about the number-based-and-not-street-name-based addresses in japan, the pay-attention-or-you’ll-surely-get-lost-in-the-twenty-or-so-train-line-system, the almost-surreal harajuku girls, the insanely-high-tech bathrooms, and sooo much more, because of my insanely fun-filled trip to the number two city on my list of top-three-cities-i-want-to-see-most-in-the-world!!!!


inspired by tokyo!!!!

why number two? because number one was paris, that i oh-so-blessedly got to go to back in 2005, and number three and still to come, is cairo. so many places to see.. so little money.. and time!! hahahahaha.

i share with you a few photos from one of the best trips of my life! (turning japanse, i think i’m turning japanese, i really think so!!)



traveling reeeeeeeeally excites me and makes me happy like no other thing in the world can!!!! iba yung thrill, iba yung fulfillment, iba yung saya!! praise GoD super, super for an amazing opportunity!!

as a last inspiring note, i end my post with..


inspired by blair’s look!!



hahaha! sa lahat ng nanonood ng gossip girl, i’m making it clear ha, it is blair’s look that i love.. not her ugali! hahahhahaha! ay graaabe, kaya kong titigan lang itong si blair! her hair, her clothes, her shoes, her accessories, and of course, her headbands! ayayaaay! haha. (okay, ang lakas maka-tibo ng sinusulat ko, pero talagang i dream na sana paggising ko, my closet looks like her closet! haha. dream on, bianca! haha!) and please, no spoilers, hinihintay ko pa ang paglabas ng dvd, so sa etc pa lang ako nanonood and its only like on episode five! at least i have something to look forward to every week. =p

(just like my blog. i am looking forward to going back to posting every week! i thank you. bow!)

Hi Miss Bianca! I can totally relate with not posting for a while then suddenly you feel this surge of wanting to post but then cannot really start because there's just too much words and simply cannot cannot decide on which to use!

Kudos to you since you've posted after such a long time! Kelan kaya ako dadapuan ng urgency to blog? Hay!

hey Über, duper smart Bianca Gonzales. :]] i agree sa post mo, parang domino effect lang yan. naiinspire natin ang bawat isa. galing. love the poem by ka pete.

andrea said...

Wow! its great to hear from you after a long time. I visit your blog often, im an avid fan and i always look forward to reading your posts. Hope to hear from you again soon. God bless!

hi biaNCA.
im so happy you are inspired. it is a nice feeling and when one is inspired, parang kayang-kaya nyang gawin ang lahat. thanks for sharing "the POEM". i have never heard of it(sorry) but the moment i read it, it was just beautiful and how i wish that i was the one who penned that simple, basic yet wise poem.i loved it. can i copy it? hehe..

and yeah, i love blair's fashio sense too.. especially the white dress she wore for a brunch with black fishnet... and her yellow headband... hahahaha.

i love the headband you used in 'the buzz', just like blair's :)

..hi, bianca..glad that you're back..i am always looking forward to your blog...i totally agree with you that travelling is one of the best thing that any person can do coz its a different kind of learning..you can check www.sidereel.com to watch the gossip girls season 1 pinagtyagan ko yun he he and the story is great..can't wait for season 2..more power!

janie said...

i think its normal to ask for more even if you feel blessed with what you already have, because we never and should not stop dreaming.

there's always something more.

anyway, have you read my comment on the other post? im the one asking you to be featured in my celebrity blogger stories for my work. thanks

.acciemaj. said...

wow! long post! nice read!
**the poem is sooo about the real world..simple things and truths that we take for granted at times.
**quarter-life crisis?!i'm kinda experiencing it though i'm just almost 23.my career has to have a direction na! :(
**i find peace in driving kahit na so chaotic traffic sa manila..i just play my fave songs (esp. Breathe by Michelle Branch)/tune in to jam..ayos na!
**gossip girl! the new episode will air on 21 april in the US..may gay character daw (it's not really a spoiler)so late na air un sa etc.blair's look is classy!her look was featured on E!more on headbands and other accessories look nya.GG is really one of my faves now!!!the voice of kristen bell is really right for gossip girl though we don't know who GG is..also there's GG Revealed..special episodes aired coz of the writers' strike..

marge said...

can i call you ate?
ate bianca.
i regularly visit your blog. as in regularly. almost everyday. na-shock po ako kanina kasi atlast may new post ka na rin! nakakamiss po kayo.
on posting. totoo po yun, na kailangan nasa tamang mood para makapag post ng totoo mong saloobin not just for the sake na to post anything lang.
like you, travelling also excites me. and i'm a daughter of a pilot. sobrang saya po talagang makasaksi ng kultura ng ibang lahi.
on being 'lola', i finally had the right term i was looking for. hehe. akala ko po jologs ang 'me time' ang magbasa, magsulat, magmui-muni, at matulala. yun pala yon. 'fun being lola'.
maraming salamat po. napakarami ko pong natututunan sa iyo.
napakabuti mong tao. thanks for sharing. your the most wonderful creature on earth.
on blair. i'm sure all girls have their own glamorous icons to look forward to. sobrang fan ako ni hilary duff. ang ganda nia noh? super role model parin siya hanggang ngayon. and next to her is bianca G. hehe. aside from your natural beauty, sooper down-to-earth pa. diba? best icon for me.
ate, i recommend po pala yung book ni kahlil gibran [jubran], "the prophet". yun ay kung hindi nio pa po nababasa.
on ka pete. my prayer is mabasa ng millions ang kanyang kathang tula at magkaroon ng mabubuting tao na tulad niya dito sa mundo. i'm looking forward for more of his 'payo' for more! more! sobrang powerful kasi. and correction po sa sinabi nio na isa ka pong simple blogger, hehe. hmm, i dont think so. millions po ang na i-influence nio.
thank you for being such a blessing ate bianca. Godbless you.

tinapots said...

Wow, haba ng post!! pero nag-enjoy naman ako sa pagbabasa. Habang nagbabasa ako nung entry mo, pakiramdam ko parang nasa harapan lang kita..Para kasing naririnig ko yung boses mo at napi-picture ko itsura mo habang masaya at excited na excited magkuwento!! haha :D damang-dama yung emosyon mo eh, tsaka daming exclamation point sa ni-post mo.hehe.. i'll look forward to your (weekly) posts..

astig talaga yung tula ni ka-pete..salamat sa pag-post nung correct version. :D

Ben-Ariel said...

Tokyo is on my top 3 rin. But when I think about how expensive it is there, I tend to move it further downwards. Haha.

Cairo! Tapos go to Morocco na rin after. Droooll...

PJ POLICARPIO said...

hey bianca,

thanks for the comment on my blog. i must say that ive only been so lucky to have traveled because i know that it is really a privilege, but also that there is soo much to seee. the world is soo big and i think now is the right time for us to conquer it. haha. wow...tokyo sounds amazing!

that poem was also featured on Korina's show on ANC with Armida reciting it. i also found it amazing at that time, not knowing that it had the same effect on you. great minds think alike, daw. haha

looking forward to more posts from you.

Anonymous said...

hey bianca :) this is orange.. have you read TWILIGHT by STEPHENIE MEYER? naku, i myself is not a bookworm.. pero i'm telling you ma-hohook ka sa novel na ito. it's fiction na nakakakilig. as in it will chill you to the bones! :) haha.

m a r g e said...

gosh! that is sooo starstruck! nakakatuwa naman that he reads your blog, anyway its "read" worthy to begin with. i miss listening to Tambalang Failon at Sanchez. miss na miss ko na! at namimiss ko na ang Cebu. at nagbabalak na rin ako mag bakasyon sa Japan. (sana, with a double cross ng fingers).

at alam ko rin ang feeling ng pagsusulat. frustrating pag di ka nakaka-sulat pero frustrating lalo kung pati ikaw parang ayaw mo lahat ng sinusulat mo. as they say, the best critic is yourself.

Ria Hazel said...

Im so happy for you kasi nagagawa mo yung mga things that you love. :D Like travelling. Just that, there's so many places to see, pero minsan, mahirap iwanan ang work and all that. :D

Congrats din for finishing a book in two days! Yay! Try reading Paolo Coelho books din. Mageenjoy ka promise.

Its cool din to know that you watch Gossip Girl. hehe. Pero alam mo, parang mas associated ka kay Serena. I dont know, parang pareho kasi kayo na bubbly, and tipong independent and strong women. Alam mo yun, unlike Blair, she has everything na nga, but still she has lots to be insecure about.

Go gurl. hehe take care. :D

princess_dyanie said...

Hi Bianca! Glad that you posted again! Tagal kong hinintay to.

Traveling also makes me uber happy. It makes you appreciate the different cultures.

Try reading Mitch Albom's books. I'ms sure you'll love it. :)

mine was yesterday..april 9.. :D

Mheems said...

Wow, I lost track of how many times you mentioned "ayayay". Katawa! Your entry seems to be super giddy, nakakahawa. :)

Anyway, about sa inspired to read... i love to read kaso napaka-inconsistent kong reader. Sa loob ng isang araw, dalawa hanggang tatlong libro ang inuumpisahan ko. Kaya minsan nagkakahalo-halo, haha! Pero ang pinaka favorite ko, Oliver's story. Nabasa mo na ba yun? Kung hindi pa, try mo, grabe!

Tungkol naman kay Blair, I have the whole set of Gossip girl books. nung naging series siya sa TV, sobrang nakakatuwa kasi parang kung pano ko siya inimagine, ganun na ganon siya pinalabas. Nakakaexcite! (na parang hindi kasi nabasa ko na nga). Nakipagkwentuhan na talaga?


hope to hear more from you soon :)

XOXO

LorWyn said...

Hi B! Lonely Planet books are major saviors talaga when traveling. I also have that Tokyo City Guide & if you really read it from cover to cover before embarking on your next journey, you'll really save a lot of time & money from getting lost & asking directions. Really worth it! I love Japan, too!

Kinpei said...

O-genki desu ka?

Bianca-chan! HAHA! Going Japanese, eh? "Bianca-chan" is like the Japanese version of "Ate Bianca"

Bianca-chan!!! The music of it reminds me of you being in Tokyo. Bianca-chan!!

Oh, and Bianca-chan, if your computer can read Japanese characters, here's your name in Japanese:

ビアンカ

(BI-A-N-KA)

When you say it, just say it with a Japanese accent though. HAHA!!!

Lastly, did you know that Tokyo means "East City" in English, while Beijing means "North City"? The former is the Japan's capital city, while the latter is China's capital city. Cool, huh? While "Seoul", Korea's capital city, just simply means "Capital". Oh, I'm so gonna go to those three cities someday.

My Japanese friend promised me to tour me around Tokyo someday. While my Korean friend will take me and my Japanese friend to Seoul this August. Try Seoul, Bianca-chan!

Hey, Bianca-chan, can you make a blog post eveyrthing about Tokyo? Puh-lease!!!

じゃね! (Ja-neh) Japanese way of saying goodbye to friends rather than using 'sayonara'. =P

finally, a post from you :) i agree, traveling alone really is great. i mean, it's like you live in your own little world. you don't have to worry about anything but yourself. the down part is, walang taga picture. haha!

i love japan too. the people are nice. i went there a few years ago. i have to comment on the-twenty-or-so-train-lines. grabe. super high-tech talaga. PH is really faaaar behind. anyhow, when it comes to hospitality, japanese and filipinos are just the same. i had the chance to stay with a jap family for two days and it was great. although hirap kami magcommunicate because they're not that good in english. :)

i look forward to reading more entries from you. you're inspired.. and you got us inspired too :)

repost ko lng biancs, astig kasi ng part na 2...

Ang sabi ng iba, " Ang matapang ay walang takot lumaban." Ang sabi ko naman "Ang tunay na matapang ay lumalaban kahit natatakot."

kasi ako lumalaban kahit natatakot for d reason na i know yung bagay na pinaglalaban ko ay worth it namn, masaya ako na ipinaglalaban ko ang isang bagay na kahit takot ako sa kalalabasang yun dahil ginusto ko at masaya ako sa desisyun ko...magkamali man ako atleast i've tried and learned from it...ganda kasi paglumalaban ka na may halong takot, challenging!maraming beses na ako nakipaglaban but yung kwentong luvlyf talaga ang pinaka challenging na naexperience ko..:)

i really luv reading ur blog biancs...nakakapag.isip ako ng malalim..hehehe

Pett said...

Hi bianca, I think I knew about ur blog in a mag. I'm not sure though. I'm a newbie here in blogspot. Maybe u could help me understand this html thing? Do u have a photo editor? How do you do your photo collage?

I hope to hear from you soon. :D

kristine said...

Hi miss bianca..At last may bago na naman..Nakakarelate talaga ako.Parang ako..haha..I really loooove japan. I super duper love their cherryblossoms and their kimono. As I read your post parang nagrereflect yung mga ginagawa ko each day lalo na yung nagbabasa hanggang makatulog..haha..I'm currently reading "sister carrie" by Theodore Dreiser(nakita ko lang to sa shelf namin)but nasa chapter pa lang ako..haha..I love the poem.Take care alwayz..

an2netluv said...

Hi Bianca. I'm proud to say that I'm one of the people fortunate enough to have been a student of Sir Lacaba. He teaches a class in Feature Writing in UP and it was really my dream to have him as a prof.

Ang sarap lang ng feeling na even after a couple of years, noong nagkita kami, naalala pa rin niya ako.:) When our class ended, he treated the whole class to News Desk Cafe tapos kwentuhan lang the whole night. That's really one of the most memorable nights of my college life.

Like your entry, nakaka-inspire. :)

Salamat pala sa pag-share ng link sa blog ni Sir. God bless you!

kim said...

Hey B! Bianca o Blair?! ikaw na mag-guess. hehe. i'm an avid fan of your blog. and if i get the chance to read your posts, i'll read it whole heartedly. naks! haha. keep it up B! oh btw, sino ba naman kasi ang hindi maiinlove sa look ni Blair. talk about sophistication in style. hehe. :D

Russ said...

Biancs.Ü Wow. You creeped me out, hahaha. We still are the same in most ways. What I wanted to say is that I feel all those things... Your sentiments about "the crisis". I've been feeling that for quite some time now. Nothing is wrong.. You're happy.. You're content... thankful... etc... But would still want to achieve more. It's achieving not in the greedy sense, but in a positive for the common good kind of way. Indeed, inspired is the word. I too am inspired with and by a lot of things. I wouldn't post the details here. Hope to see you soon. Our moms see each other more often than we do. Hahaha.

Stay happy!Ü

hello bianca! yehey! after 48 years nagpost ka ulit! ehehehehe! thank you for sharing the poem! ang ganda sooo inspiring.

im glad you had a great time here in cebu! try to visit sumilon or bantayan, maganda rin.

pareho tayo, frustrated reader din ako..it would take me months rin to finish reading a book..hehehe..but just like you meron din akong 2 books na natapos in just one day ~ Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven..the latter, i've read last holy week (my friend lent me this book). Sobrang nagandahan talaga ako sa book na to that I even wrote in my journal some beautiful quotes from the book and I'm sharing some of these quotes with you ;)


"All endings are also beginning. We just don't know it at the time.."

"Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know."

"No life is a waste. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone."

"Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you’re not really losing it. You’re just passing it on to someone else."

"Love, like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy. But sometimes, under the angry heat of life, love dries on the surface and must nourish from below, tending to its roots, keeping itself alive."

"Holding ANGER is a poison. It eats you from inside. We think that HATING is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But HATRED is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves."

"You have PEACE when you make it with yourself."

God bless you always bianca! Take care!

hey bianca! glad you love cebu! i was born and raised in cebu,even though I have been living in the states for 10 years. i miss cebu, the beach, the food, the laid back atmosphere. Everytime you write about cebu, it feels like I'm also there traveling. Anyway, I have been reading your blog for almost 2 years. I really enjoy how you write and how you tell your stories. Thank you for sharing your experinces!

ann said...

Hi bianca!

you really have a worth reading post..

have u read the secrets(the power of attraction)? i think thats what ur doing..by being happy and inspired you did attract a lot of people to feel the same energy as yours!

so,,keep on writing! keep on inspiring! =)

Godbless!

Anonymous said...

hey Bianca, How are you?
I can totally relate to ALL! Being Inspired is almost like falling inlove. I, myself, blogged and it has been HISTORY since I last posted.

I last visited your site early this year, commented from Venice... I remember reading something interesting here and hearing alot of things about you from both Venice and Iya (i think lol).

Your aspirations and inspirations are incredibly fascinating. You endure life at its best (and so you should). You keep up the good work and I hope to remember registering on Blogger to also share my postings to you, which i am sure you will be entertained!

thanks for inspiring me..

bianca said...

hello anonymous, thank you for pointing it out. :) but i also hope you're not too quick to judge, i would never do anything like that, it is my pointer finger. i don't believe in what "raising the middle finger" stands for. have a positive day ahead! :)

Ryztelle said...

Hi there Ate Bianca :) well, i love Gossip Girl too. Nawatch ko na yung season 1. As in yung buo na yon, and mga ilang hours lang naman ako nagwawatch. Anyway, love ko sila both. Hahaha si S and B :P Pero love ko yung mga outfit ni Blair. Hehe ang labo naman yata non. Haay.. I wish na makarating din ako ng Japan. Woooo! SOMEDAY.. SOMEDAY.

Ryztelle said...

Hi again. Haha :) I wanna see you in person. Pag nakita kita, sana maalala mo name ko. Hahaha Ryztelle. Ang nagcomment sa blog mo. I really love visiting your blog, ang dami dami ko lang natututunan. Ewaaaaaaan. Hahaa :) Take care Ate Biancs! *wink*

nakaka inggit kasi nakarating ka ng japan. with the salary rate i am earning (i am a nurse, btw), naku, 20yrs bago ako mkapag out of the country. sigh.

pero masaya naman ako kapag nagppsalamat sila sa akin/amin at natatandaan ng mga pasyento ko/main ang mga pangalan naming nurses. nakaktaba ng puso. :)

pero nakaka inggit ka pa din. number ko are aussie and europe (walang particualr na bansa. basta europa hahaha), tied sa second ang s. korea at japan (waaaah! yung mga gadgets.. yun ang kamangha mangha!) tapos third ang egypt din. gusto ko makita ang pyramids. kasi hanggang ngayon, iniisip ko, sa panahon nila, paano kaya nila nagawa yun. galing noh?

continue to be inspired. kasi feeling ko boring ang buhay kung hindi ka inspired. inspired by your friends and family, and most esp. inspired by GoD. :) yun ang pinaka magandang inner drive for you to keep going in your everyday life.

yung alam mong kahit anung mangyari, i have the Lord with me, ok ang lahat. tapos domino effect na yan. magiging inspired ka tapos mashe-share mo sa iba, tapos lahat, happy and inspired din. :)

God bless you, bianca. :)

HellCat said...

Yo, Bianca!

I hope you also realize that Japan is one of the
world's largest hunters
of endangered whales which they do under the guise of scientific research.


Clubbing dolphins
is also a favorite pastime for many japanese.

No one nation is perfect but Japan's reputation as a nature lover is just that: an undeserved reputation.

Me? I look past their nature-loving-blah-blah shinto head-whack and instead love them for their technology, their cameras, their short-skirted compatriots in Cebu and their animes of teenaged girls battling monsters while giving us a clear view of their panties. That, for me, is Japan!

I don't understand why so many people just love Japan. Oh, well. Have you watched "Lost in Translation"? It was set in Japan. :)

Hey bianca.
Just decided to drop by.
I just started watching gossip girl yesterday and God, I got addicted to it. I already have the DVD (hehe), but sadly i think it has a lot of scratches and distorted the last 4 chapters/episodes. huhu. Anyway, it's fun, and I love Blair too. Oh how I wish I was Blair. Though sometimes, I like her "mean-ness", because she's clever. LOL :) Keep on blogging.

i am also a fan of japan- i like everything about japan:people, food, history, culture, inventions, everything.

"Maghugas ka ng kamay bago kumain.
Maghugas ka ng kamay pagkatapos kumain.

ah... u dont love THE Blair Waldorf??? wait lang for the succeeding eps and u won't just love her style! she has good taste nmn tlaga eh cause she can afford Valentino. haha! u'll like her more than S. ur lucky to have the same initial as her, B. i'm sort of addicted to gossip girl, that's why. and what's classy about B is, she loves audrey hepburn. dont wait for the dvd, u download it on isohunt.

u should try acting bianca so they'll pamper u-- like wt they're doing to leighton. it seems like your lifestyle's not far from hers, anyway..:)

kristina noelle said...

WOW. bianca. i super love you talaga.
you're so cool. natuwa ako. you're also watching gossip girl. ansaya,
gusto ko nga din yung fashion sense ni blair but i don't like her "ugali". hahaha. you can watch naman sa internet eh. pero ok din sa etc.

I also love blair's look! I love her style! so is thats why you love wearing headbands? hehe!

bianca! we're not really like friends but since i, too, am a very HUGE fan of gossip girl and since i know how disappointing it feels to still wait for a week just for a single "bitin" episode, i think it would be an apt idea to share this: i know this youtube-ish site called surf the channel. visit http://www.surfthechannel.com/show/television/Goss ip_Girl.html

it's complete; they have all the 18 episodes of season one=)

Hey Bianca!

How are you? It's Mike Lopez (NYC).. I've just been bitten by the blog bug (out of urgency that is).. Hope you (or your friends frequenting your blog) can visit http://mikeacebedolopez.blogspot.com

I had to make one (upon the advice of my friends and fellow youth leaders) to accommodate the deluge of emails I've been getting on the article/expose I wrote on the abuses in the National Youth Commission- "The Confessions of the President's Youngest Appointee."

Please spread the word as it's very important for the youth to do our own little share and come together to fight this good fight for a better NYC, one that the youth truly deserve.

Thanks! Hope to see you soon.. Ingat!

Noticed that you loved travelling so much. I had the same passion, the reason why I quit my job, moved to another country and pursue my dream.I'm a flight attendant now, staying here for 2 years (1 year more left) I've been to places I've only dreamed of, grabbing my days off to travel (+the discounted tickets of course)and my layover as well. This is just a suggestion, you may wanna look into it if you are so addicted to travelling =)
Enjoy!

You are gorgeous, Bianca Gonzales!
Hopefully, more teenage girls would emulate the good work you have done for the youth and the good image you have given to teenage girls around.

I, on the other hand, love Serena's LOOK and not her..attitude.
Tee-hee.
God bless Bianca! Congrats on your Brother's wedding. Best wishes!

Au revoir!
