I wake up each
morning wanting
more of you.

First, it was your
lips, then it was
your hands, now

it is your heart.
Now, it is always
your heart.

“ Please tell me
I’m not as forgettable
as your silence
is making me feel. ”

An honest friendship is one in which even after weeks of not speaking, things are still the same whenever you choose to speak. I don’t see the obsession with talking to people every single day online or over text just to call yourselves friends. If you don’t talk to me for a while, I’m not going to assume you don’t want to be friends.

teach themselves

how to bloom after
winter passes,

HOW TO MAKE LUTO “INSTANT PANCIT CANTON” WITH SO MUCH HUGOT

Kahit gaano kadaming pizza ang kinain mo nung isang araw, sa instant pancit canton pa rin ang bagsak mo kinabukasan. ‘Coz that’s the thing about instant, pamatid-gutom lang. Parang pag-ibig kapag minamadali.

At bilang isang dakilang alagad ng pag-ibig at pagkain, narito ang tamang pagluluto ng instant pancit canton with so much hugot and feelings. 

  1. Minsan, ang 3 minutes na pagluluto ng pansit canton ang isa sa pinakamatagal na yugto ng buhay mo lalo na kung wala kang ibang ginagawa kundi hintayin lang itong maluto. And that’s the cliche’ about waiting someone. Parang mas tumatagal kapag mas lalong hinihintay.
  2. Kapag hindi mo binantayan ang niluluto mo, it’s either undercooked or overcooked. Parang relasyon lang, kelangang ingatan at bantayan. Baka bigla na lang malamog at masayang.
  3. Icheck kung kumpleto ang seasonings na nakalagay sa pack. Dahil para din yang relasyon, kulang kapag yung isa WALANG TOYO.
  4. Ang sakit sa ilong kapag bigla-bigla mo na lang nasisinghot yung chili powder habang ibinubudbod sa ibabaw ng pancit canton. Kung makapaglagay ka kasi feeling mo fairy dust. Pero ganun talaga siguro. Dun ka nasasaktan sa mga bagay na di mo ineexpect.
  5. Hindi mo kelangang ihalo at ilagay lahat ng seasoning dahil yun ang nakalagay sa pack. Wag mong ibigay lahat. Minsan, kelangan talaga nating magtira para hindi masyadong umalat. 
  6. Kelangan mong haluin ng mabuti para kumalat yung seasoning. Para even yung lasa. Para walang part na sobrang alat, walang part na sobrang tabang. Parang relasyon lang. It’s not just about knowing your differences, it’s on how you integrate and mix together. Dahil mas masarap yung feeling kapag halong-halo at nagkakasundo sa kabila ng maraming pagkakaiba niyo.
  7. Hindi porket pancit canton lang, eh simpleng instant pancit canton na lang yan. Lagyan ng kung anu-anong extra toppings. Wag magsettle sa “sapat lang” o “sakto lang”. Why live an ordinary life when you can live an extraordinary one?
