sweet strangers.


have you ever experienced a total stranger brightening up your day? :)



the sweet drive thru crew.



one super late night, i was suddenly craving for twister fries and a mcfloat, so i drove thru the 24-hour commonwealth branch of mcdonalds. they had the absolute sweetest drive thru staff! all of them rushed to the window to ask me about all these different things, about when the next pinoy big brother season will be, about sending their regards to boy abunda, about my work schedule, and other random topics! they requested to take my photo, so i asked them if i could take their photo too! they all game-ly posed! :)



the sweet blog comment.



i've always said that the biggest compliment anyone can ever give me is that they read my blog. its because i know they appreciate me not for what i do, or what i may have worn, or who i may be friends with, but because of my thoughts and what's in my head. i am very, very thankful to all of you who read my blog, and to all of you who have been reading my blog since way back when i started.. in 2003! :p



the sweet customers.



my darling alex carbonell, the creative head of all bench fix salons, has been doing my hair for ten years now! cut, color, style, treat, name it, its alex who does it for me. i absolutely love him!!!! i really believe in having a close personal relationship with your hairstylist, someone who can grow with you, someone who can take care of your crowning glory. recently, alex and i experimented with my hair color, and he forwarded me this text, saying many clients come into his salon, studio fix in greenbelt five, asking for what color my hair is, or asking to have their bangs cut! its extremely flattering and humbling to know!



don't be afraid to go out of your way to smile to a stranger, or share an appreciative comment to some random person. sometimes, well actually, a lot of times, a total stranger can make your day! make theirs too. :)

I'm one of the lucky people who gets sweet compliments and appreciations almost everyday. I see to it that I help my patients lessen their anxiety in the hospital.

I love reading your posts, ever since I started blogging last 2006. Wish you could pay a visit! GoD Bless!

you are one of a kind! stay true..keep on inspiring us. GBU! :)

Awww. What a sweet entry! I'm not surprised that you get this kind of affection from random strangers. Your blog entries match your TV persona. Stay sweet, smart and genuine! :D

I also agree on your remark about keeping a close friendship with your hairstylist. I remember reading about a group of hairstylists in the US being trained to 'casually' spread the word about HIV awareness and prevention. The premise: girls are loyal to their hairstylists, dadayuhin pa nila yun if the need arises.

you're so friendly po talaga. :) sweet.

when i was naive back then with how the internet works and when i knew you had a blog: i told myself that "imma follow bianca!" and now years after, i still follow your blog. when i check my mail i also take the time to read my reader for the blogs i follow. and yes, you are there. #1 :D

keep blogging.
keep being a wonderful blessing to each one of us.

hi bianca :-) I really love it when a complete stranger makes my day! With all the bad things happening around us, it makes me believe that the world is still essentially good.

Thanks so much for sharing a part of yourself to us.

Oh, and I am planning to get a FlipVideo.. would you recommend it? How's your Flip?? Would appreciate some pointers since I don't know anyone (personally) who has it.. thanks!

keep it up, bianca! superb and a very true person. ^^

welladaynne said...

I'd always say the same thing Miss Bianca. You're one of the most amazing celebrities today. Keep doing great.:)

Meyrick Principe said...

Hi Bianca, sorry to give this unsolicited advise but may I just say that frequent twister fries may harm you. It's high in saturated fat and sodium. You can have it once in a while - - maybe once a week.

I admire people like you. I don't want you to be sick.

eza said...

im a fan of your blog.your one of my inspirations why i made my own. keep sharing your thoughts supergirl!:)

Pixy said...

I know I keep saying this whenever I comment on your posts, but I'll say it anyway, and I will keep on saying it over and over..

Keep Inspiring People! :))

God Bless PO! :))

ChaCha M. said...

Just last week I was thinking why she hasn't made an entry lately and I'm glad u did this entry now. I've always liked reading on peoples perspective in live. Mapashowbiz man or Hindi. But when it comes to celebrities like you, it's much more endearing to know you outside a pretty dress, a glamorous hair and make up an a script to follow. It feels more real and it's more engaging to know you better as a person above all. Keep it up!

mayen said...

i love reading your blog bianca. I am a fan. Every time i turn on my computer, aside from facebook your blog is the first site i want to go to so i can check if you have new entry because i know every entry will be inspiring. thank you for reminding us (your readers) to appreciate things we usually ignore. keep it up. :)

i've been reading your blog even before PBB! im not sure if u were able to read my comment then asking if you'd like to join PBB too, and the next thing was there you are being introduced as one of the housemates! ang kulet! :) that was really awesome! :) i'd be really happy to see you in person! please stay simple and grounded! by the way i love your pixie haircut!hugs!

kristine said...

Another great and inspiring post from you! I totally love this! I have also experienced how nice you were when I saw you at USTv awards years ago. I asked you if I could take a picture with you and you were so nice to say yes. You inspire not only me but a lot of people and I thank you for that.

It was your blog that introduced me to blogging. Everyone is right, you are beautiful inside and out. You are such a blessing to so many people. I wish you more happiness. Continue inspiring us.

Take care and I love you.

you know why those people are nice to you? because you're a celebrity.

supermanster said...

bianca. Your doing great with your hosting stint. i know PMPC will choose you again as the Best Showbiz Oriented Female host. I wasn't really a fan of yours before. Now, im hooked with you. I heart you!

ihatebiancag said...

Si Bianca mabait? A big NO! She's so plastic and maarte in person! Front lang niya ang pagiging sweet! But she's a BITCH! I had my OJT at ABS-CBN and there I got to know the real Bianca! Sa twitter and blog lang siya nice but when you got to know her you will be disgusted by her real persona! A major turn off! Bagay nga sila maging BFF ni Mariel Rodriguez!

romz said...

:)) Been reading your blog since i found out about it..mga 3 years na rin. but i backread. hehe. Keep blogging. even one-liners are interesting :)) Godbless you more Ms. Bianca. :)

Ems Gonzales said...

This is so inspiring! Often times I forget how a simple smile or wave could brighten up someone's day and mine as well so I go on with my mundane tasks unmindful. Thanks for this post...I have just been reminded it wouldn't hurt to smile more.;p

Le said...

Hi Ms. Bianca! =)
It was nice reading your blog entry (as always). =)

I remember one time when I was attending the mass and the girl next to me grabbed my hand then smiled at me when we sung "Our Father". After that, she gave me again this wonderful smile as she wished me peace (the 'peace be with you' part of the mass) It really felt good, specially that, that time I was experiencing some difficulties in my life. A simple smile can just change everything!

Yup, Nagpapic nga ako kay Ms Bianca at kahit medyo parang ayaw nya, pumayag pa rin cya, ehehe, nakakahiya nga eh, pero natuwa pa rin ako kc may souvenir ako ni Ms Bianca with me :)

trish said...

Aww. This is soo sweeet! :"> Sweetest compliments are from strangers! :) And I used to receive compliments that I look like you!!! Yes, I take it as a compliment. It's flattering pero nahihiya ako minsan kasi ang ganda mo eh. Hahaha! I think kaya sinasabi ng friends ko na kamukha or ka-aura kita (since you entered PBB house) kasi we're both proud morenas! :) We have same skin tone!! :))) Hope to meet you someday! Sana talagaaa!! Or kahit makita lang kita sa malls! But you're always at ATC ata eh, which is far from me. Hehehe. I'm such a fan :"> I wanna be a supergirl too! Continue to do good deeds! More power! God bless! :)

YOU'RE JUST A LOSER....

BOK said...

is this blog an official one? or it's some sort of using Bianca G. as a front author pero hindi naman talaga sya yung admin?

anyway, i like this post. truly, strangers often times, inspire us way more than those we've already known for ages.

good read.

its my first time to read your blogs.. Aw.. Good vibes, ang gaan sa pakiramdam.. Nakakarelax.. Touching, your such a great person, no wonder napaka successful mo.. God bless po ms.bianca :)

i super got inspired with the last phrase that you said in your blog:

"don't be afraid to go out of your way to smile to a stranger, or share an appreciative comment to some random person. sometimes, well actually, a lot of times, a total stranger can make your day! make theirs too. :)"

very positive! sana lahat ng tao ganyan. hope to see you soon, oo kahit "see" lang! ;)
