If I Were

Entry Comments Actions

Brian and I, during one of our park dates at Sunken Garden, UP Diliman.

Hello March and hello everyone! I’m happy to be writing again. I’m greeting all of you and the first quarter of 2015 with superb positive energy and good karma!

To break in the silence in this little corner, I decided to ask my B to join me in documenting “ourselves”, who we are and what we feel on a per month basis with this cute form with a twist.

Read his February version here.

Here it goes, my If I Were – February Edition

If I were a month, I’d be November — solemn yet festive.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be Sunday — cool and relaxing.
If I were a time of day, I’d be brunch time — breakfast in the late morning? Yes please.

If I were a planet, I’d be Venus — named after Roman goddess of love and beauty, second brightest in the night sky after the moon.
If I were a sea animal, I’d be a swan — symbol of beauty, grace, power and fidelity.
If I were a direction, I’d be South — home is where your heart is.
If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a daybed — best for lounging, day or night.

If I were a liquid, I’m best served cold on the rocks — esp this summertime.
If I were a gemstone, I’d be diamond — unbreakable and will always remind me of “Bella”.
If I were a tree, I’d be a pine tree.

If I were a tool, I’d be a Swiss knife.
If I were a flower, I’d be a bougainvillea.
If I were a kind of weather, I’d be warm and sunny.
If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a guitar.
If I were a color, I’d be pale pink.

If I were an emotion, I’d be all about love.
If I were a fruit, I’d be a pineapple — can be tangy yet sweet.
If I were a sound, I’d be a beat of your heart.
If I were an element, I’d be fire.
If I were a vehicle, I’d be a red vintage convertible.

If I were a food, I’d be deliciously spicy.
If I were a place, I’d be a fine-looking white sand beach.
If I were a material, I’d be a doily.
If I were a taste, I’d be sweet and spicy.
If I were a scent, I’d be the smell of your favorite memory.

There you have it!! Re-reading my entry last 2010 was a fun way to remember how I felt before, and answering it in my state now and doing it as a fun couple’s activity is amusing.

You think it’s fun? Why don’t you try it and get to know yourself even better!

You & Me: Time In A Bottle

Time in a BottleA photo taken after dinner at Lugang Café in Mega Fashion Hall.

Hello, July!

Here we are, working our way to try and squeeze quality time every chance we get esp with our crazy busy lives. A simple dinner where we talked and caught up on how our day was is just what I needed to greet this new month a sweet “Hello!”.

I know time and time again when it’s the first day of the month, I always get amazed at “how time flies really fast” and for those who are like me wondering where did time go, I leave you this very befitting quote about time.

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”

— Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay

How did you start your second half of the year? I hope with a smile painted on your face!

Taking photographs and writing are just some of the leisure pursuit I discovered from myself ever since I met Brian (who, as you may have noticed, I love to call as B) about seven years ago. He inspires me in more ways than one to have a creative outlet and express myself, and to not let the day to day routine drag me to live a dull and monotonous life. And since I met him, I enjoyed (and preferred) to document every little beautiful thing that we experience and create together.

One of our many passions is creating self-portraits of us together.

Birthday at Oakroom

I remember the first time I met B, he was just twenty-five, and this year — he’s celebrating his thirty-second birthday! Amazing seven years have passed and I am one happy woman to be celebrating his birthday again with me. I’d say I am not a good gift-giver and so I tend to lean towards throwing him a food feast as my little surprise gift. Don’t judge!

Last year, I prepared him some breakfast in bed and a dinner date. This year, well, he got a not-so-surprise birthday dinner at Oakroom.

Speaking of birthdays, I will never ever forget this beautiful birthday song that darling B played to me on one of my birthdays and it’s now part of our birthday’s little tradition…
