I’ve just awakened from my first decent afternoon nap in weeks, and I’m in such a great mood. Weather is great, and I’m blogging in Randy’s new and improved coffee/“muni-muni” spot. I’m claiming it momentarily to be my tea-cum-blog spot. 😜
Waking up like this from afternoon naps means I’m healing emotionally. The feeling reminds me of the last time I had a boyfriend break-up (that means a few months before the Randy era. Hehe 😬) in college. Alam mo ‘yung restlessness because you can’t understand how you feel? Because at that time and recently, nag-aagawan ang hurt and anger. In the beginning, hurt was the dominant feeling. Soon after, anger was gaining momentum. I would sleep late at night but not reach the REM phase. Even when asleep, I would still somehow be overthinking things and I would get woken up by the slightest noise, and find it difficult to sleep again. In my post-breakup situation in college, I started healing when I went home to Mindanao during that summer. I would sleep fitfully in my parents’ bedroom, and I would feel refreshed. I knew I was going back to my bubbly self again. Then Randy happened. 😻
So today, my reached-the-REM afternoon nap assured me I’m healing. ☺️ That’s why I’m blogging again! Yey!
As much as I didn’t want to be a negastar on social media, I couldn’t help but post some things that scream I’m hurting inside. To my friends on Facebook who are wondering, yes, may #Hugot ‘tong post kong ito:
To those who PM’ed me, thank you. 🙂
I don’t want to talk about it further because I’m already healing, but this is one lesson I could impart to you: I realized that it is more hurtful to You when Someone who knows You well nurtures a seed of hatred in his heart, just because Another Person told Someone something that You allegedly said without clarifying everything.
So guys, if you are like Someone who is harbouring hate just because feeling mo chinichismis ka ng friend mo, you owe it to your friend to ask for an explanation. Because the operative word is “feeling”. It’s not a fact. And sabi nga lagi ng mga ka-DDS ni Mocha Uson (hehe), the context is important! Or if in case your friend really screwed up, you owe it to him to give him a chance to apologize.
Because if you continue to nurture and nourish the hate in your heart secretly, that’s betrayal.

What a pleasant surprise! 🤗 I had a not-so-good week, and my face looked a lot like our bullmastiffs'. 😔 Then I saw this awesome gift from #Celeteque, frame with timely quote included! You bet I'll be flashing my "curve" more with this Celeteque DermoCosmetics Matte Lipstick triple treat! Thank you! #CeletequePh #CeletequePhilippines 💋@celetequedermo#celetequedermocosmetics
Aside from my hanash, the Celeteque lippies were also very timely because I’m looking for the perfect creamy lipsticks. I’ve gotten tired of my “shiny shimmering splendid” lipsticks and lip glosses.

The past months, I’ve been looking for the perfect nude lipstick for me, and I think I found it! Look:
Barely there, but my lips still pop! Other nudes I tried made me look anemic!
Aside from that I think I found my perfect nude matte in Celeteque lippies, I’m even more ecstatic because I know that swiping Celeteque lipsticks are good for my lips. They’re co-created with dermatologists, after all! They’re packed with:
- Vitamin E to moisturise the lips (without the waxy feel)
- Bisabolol to reduce flaking and restore suppleness
- Candelilla wax to nourish lip skin
This smile is brought to you by my wonderful family, Bob Marley and Celeteque Creamy Matte Lipstick in Wine. Thanks Sweetheart for this photo 🙂
Again, thank you Celeteque (and Bob Marley!!!) for bringing out my best curve—my smile!
