Fantastic Five

Day 19, May 19th, Sunday: Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them.

In no particular order.


Jackie Bui of Buitiful Confessions

Hi reader, I reckon you already know Jackie because of my Day 5, where I publicly professed my love for this gal. WHIP-SMART. That’s what I love about her. Her writing style reminds me of the ones I read in books. I think I’ve mentioned a million times how much I adore her. All I know is that Jackie, my online twin, serves as one of my inspirations in maintaining this blog. Remember! She’s the first person I look up to in terms of blogging. Anyway, just look at her new haircut. Isn’t she gorgeous? I got it from her facebook account

Read her blog or you’ll miss the amazing things life has to offer. 😉


Lara of Deep Fried Jupiter

Aside from Jackie, this girl is also my favorite even until now. I first learned about her when I was just a newcomer in tumblr. Her blog consists of her experiences, advice,  basketball, basketball, and basketball. She’s a journalism major in UST. Running and playing basketball (obviously) keep her sane. I love the way she writes, and the manner she expresses herself. I can say how honest she is when I read her posts. Her taste in graphic design always gets me. Oh pink. She’s also into photography. This pretty Joyce Jimenez look-alike will definitely capture your heart.

And oh!! I got this photo of her and her boyfriend from her tumblr. I JUST LOVE LARA AND KRISTEN. They have this type of relationship every girl dreams of.


Mikkey of Isang Malaking Microwave

This is Kuya Mikkey. He has to be one of the most sarcastic persons I know. He’s a huge PBA fan. He’s never afraid to say what’s on his mind. He usually writes in Tagalog. Visit his page and you’ll find yourself laughing at his wit. His gif of himself inside the fridge while welcoming the summer is just sajhfgashdhjhlfsa. I laughed until my side hurts. He’s always been a concerned citizen of this country. (wait I’m cracking up with what I’ve just said) You’ll often read politics-related posts in his blog. I admire his honesty and practicality.


Gio of  Tomorrow Never Knows

This lad here is Gio. He wants to be a journalist someday, a dream I didn’t pursue because I love Accounting more. I can somehow see myself in him. Driven and frank. He’s a bookworm too! He can be very random at times, but when he writes, you’ll ask yourself if he’s read what’s on your mind. Everyone can relate. It’s like he’s been through a great deal of struggles at an early age. I seriously don’t know what to write in here since we’ve been twitter acquaintances only for a few months. I think he’s pretty smart too, though HE LOATHES MATH. (Oh well I love Math.)

Read his blog.


John Brix of Put Your Cape On and Fly

This young man here is my non-biological little brother. He followed me a few months back on twitter. He loves John Green and Algebra as much as I do! *applause* I think I haven’t even thanked him for being such a supportive friend to me. I can vent my feelings, vanities, and whatnot. He’s quite mature for his age, and I really appreciate everything he’s done for me. Whenever I’m feeling low, he’s just there, always telling me KAPIT-BISIG. 🙂

Dear kapatid,

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Big sis is always here to listen or whenever you need any help!! Don’t hesitate, okay? Stay awesome!  Mwah! 🙂

PS: I felt like a stalker finding photos of these people. Reasons behind.

  1. Jackie’s photo was from her facebook account. She just recently cut her long hair and it’s sweet that she even messaged me about cutting it and telling we’re really twins. 😉
  2. I think I’ve mentioned it already. Kristen and Lara. Lara and Kristen. Adorable, eh? 🙂
  3. Kuya Mikkey’s photo is what’s in her sidebar in tumblr. Just see for yourself. Also, I think the pitcher’s cute.
  4. I think Gio’s cute in that photo. He looks genuinely innocent.

Oh just don’t mind me, reader. Read their lovely blogs instead. DFTBA!! xx

Remembering What Inspiration Is

On that day
In bed I lay
You said I was a gift
With no BUTs and IFs

You gave me a name
And that stays the same
I face life without fears
‘Cause I’m with you for so many years

I’ve learned many things
In which life brings
You are always there
You show me that you care

Through thick and thin,
To you I always lean
Thanks for everything
Because of you I can now do anything

Note: I wrote this more than three years ago and I feel lucky that I found this file. The original work was made up of twenty lines; but the rhyme scheme faltered on the remaining four so I deleted the lines.
