Me:
Hindi na kinaya. Tulog na kaya si Marvin. And it’s too hard to come up with a session plan without Louie. Sya anchor bukas eh.

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

HIM:

Me:
Kanina pa yang meeting? I can’t na eh… Have to get up soon to prep. If I fall back asleep, baka pag gising ko 10 am na. Lol!

You pay attention na there in your meeting 🙂

HIM:
maligo ka na.. masarap maligo jan ngaun.. =D

Me:
In a while 🙂 i can’t get out of bed yet.

HIM:
i would massage u if i were there

5:45 am
Me:
Oh. My. God. That would feel so good right now.

My back’s acting up and I can’t stand on my right leg, kaya delaying tactic ako sa pagbangon. Haha

6:31 am
HIM:
hmmm.. i wish im there..

6:50 am
Me:
Why?

HIM:
id love to make u feel better

Me:
Hmmm.. 🙂

HIM:
i’ll massage ur back and ur legs to stop that hurt and cramping

Me:
That sounds so good *sigh*

HIM:
sayang.. layo mo naman

7:00 am
Me:

Eh ganun eh :p

Done na meeting mo?

HIM:
di pa e.. strategizing.. ikaw.. ano na ginagawa mo..

Me:
Still in bed. Pero all showered and dressed na. Nag-iisip kung paano ako didiskarte today at hindi ako makagalaw ng maayos. Lol.

7:17 am
HIM:
flat shoes hun

Me:
Lol. Wala naman akong balak magheels today (plus the fact that I have to buy a new pair of heels).

I’m tired na 😦

HIM:
wag ka na mag present.. uwi ka nalang dito.. i’ll baby you..

Me:
Haha… Kung pwede lang at if I didn’t need the training hours, uuwi na talaga ako. Go here nalang 🙂

HIM:

Me:
Really?

HIM:

7:30 am
Me:
Baguio’s kinda a long way off, don’t you think?

HIM:
u think i wont do it for u?

Me:
I don’t know why you would…

HIM:
i want to if u want to..

Me:
What do you want?

HIM:
i want to spend time w u.. have a good quality time.. talk, laugh and stuff =D

7:54 am
Me:
You’d travel to baguio to spend time with me?

HIM:
hitting 2 birds w 1 stone.. masarap naman mag bakasyon sa baguio ah.. of course if u’d spend tym w me here than baguio, mas pipiliin ko dito kasi mas madali.. but if u will wanna spend time w me in baguio, i will go there and spend time w u.. that’s serving most of the wants..

Me:
Good answer 🙂

HIM:
what’s a bad answer?

Me:
Anything that doesn’t have anything to do with you wanting to spend time with me 🙂

HIM:
?? Like?

Me:
Basta yun na yun. Lol

HIM:
haha.. girlie answer hun

Me:
I don’t have a lot of those. I promise 🙂

HIM:
i know.. kaya napansin ko kaagad..

8:16 am
Me:
It’s so pretty here… I do kinda wish you were here 🙂

HIM:
kinda?

Me:
Kinda 🙂

HIM:
ok.. so i guess u can tell me if u want me to go there, really go there..

Me:
Hey, I gotta ask you something but you don’t have to answer if you don’t want, okay?

HIM:
ok

Me:
Why the sudden showering of attention? Why the sudden interest now? You never used to be.

8:31 am
HIM:
i don’t see it in ‘sudden’ perspective.. i’ve always been like this to you, or at least i’ve always been ready to be like this to you, ngaun mo lang napansin..

Me:
Really?

HIM:
yep.. no denying that.. why?

Me:
No reason. I don’t like assuming so I asked.

8:45 am
HIM:
ok.. =D

Me:
🙂

Me:
On your way home na?

HIM:
yes hunnie.. im so sleepy

Me:
You need to sleep earlier kasi. Try to sleep sa byahe. Mamaya late ka nanaman magising 🙂

HIM:
i’ll sleep if i can’t txt u anymore

9:15 am
I’ve excused myself from the morning activities. Resident dance instructor lang ako for 10 to 15 mins. Hehe..

HIM:
ok.. text me when u wanna.. =D

Me:
😀 San ka pala sa cavite?

HIM:
u know molino?

Me:
Familiar. Marvin is from Cavite also eh. Pero Gen. Trias ata sya.

HIM:
ang layo samin nun.. yata.. kasi di ko lam un e..

Me:
Hahaha… I’ll be somewhere in Cavite from the 12th to the 14th, I think

HIM:

Me:
Haha… I’m going home with She kasi

9:31 am
HIM:
ah.. kala ko u’ll have sessions..

Me:
Help nalang ako until tomorrow. I still can’t walk very well

HIM:
i mean kala ko meron kang sessions sa cavite that’s why u will be in cavite

9:47 am
Me:
Ah no… “vacation” yun. Tapos leave ako ng 14 to 16.

HIM:
goin some place?

Me:
No naman. She’s celebrating her birthday on the 15th eh. E magkakabit ang bituka namin these days, kaya I opted to go on leave for the days before and after that.

HIM:
oh yeah.. she asked me if i will have leave needs that time.. para maka leave sya..

Me:
Nagleleave ka pa ba? 🙂

HIM:
of course hun.. when i need to.. last feb i was on leave for 3 days, i went to cebu w my sis and her bf..

10:02 am
Me:
Malay ko ba kung adik ka sa work :p Is your sister younger or older that you?

HIM:
i just want everything to be fine para maka petiks ako.. hehe..
she’s 2yrs older.. =D

Me:
Haha… Inaantay ko pa ang araw na makapagpetiks ako sa office 😛

Bunso ka ba?

HIM:
naging bunso ako for 8yrs and then 3more siblings

Me:
Oh my god. How many of you are there?

HIM:
6 within marriage.. but my father he had a son before he met my mom

Me:
Wow… You have such a big family! 🙂

HIM:
yep.. sila umuubos ng time ko outside work, and barkada.. hehe.. all occassions are reunions..

Me:
That’s so nice 🙂

HIM:
we’re not close when we were young.. we kindof reinvented our family when we grew older..

Me:
At least you were able to do that 🙂

10:15 am
HIM:
yep.. i learned to live without regrets when i started living how i wanna, doing what i wanna

Me:
I think that’s the best way to live life 🙂

HIM:
oh yeah..

Me:
So… No regrets, huh?

HIM:
as far as i know.. =D

Me:
🙂

HIM:
how do i make you feel?

10:35 am
Me:
Happy… Appreciated… Cared for… Important… Giddy…

HIM:
may tanong ako wag ka tatawa ah

Me:
O?

HIM:
ano’ng ibig sabihin ng giddy? hahaha

10:47 am
Me:
Kilig. I am trying so hard not to laugh right now.

HIM:
hahaha.. nyehehe.. kiss*

Me:
Why did you ask?

HIM:
just curious hunnie… i like talking to you.. i gotta wonder how u feel abt it..

Me:
How do I make you feel?

HIM:
peaceful.. wanting.. excited.. listened to.. happy..

and ‘giddy’.. c”,)

11:00 am
Me:
Wanting? 🙂

HIM:
yeah.. u worried abt that? =P

Me:
Exactly what do you mean by “wanting”?

HIM:
wanting to be w u.. wanting to talk in ur face.. see u smile in front of me.. wanting to see u..

Me:
Hmm… 🙂

HIM:
tell me ur thoughts hun..

11:20 am
Me:
I’m… Surprised 🙂

HIM:
is it good?

Me:
Yes, it is 🙂

HIM:
cool hun..

Me:
Haha… You’re not just screwing with my head, are you?

HIM:
im not.. u wanna ask all u wanna ask.. i’ll answer straight..

11:45 am
Me:
That was the only thing I needed to know

HIM:
besides, i dont want to screw w ur head hun.. it wont be good for me..

Me:
What makes you say that?

HIM:
i respect u.. by extension, im afraid of what might happen to me if i mess w u.. that’s practical truth..

Me:
What might happen to you?

HIM:
baka awayin mo ako.. i don’t want that..

Me:
Oh well, that’s true. I’m very… Vengeful.

HIM:
i have a question

Me:
Yes?

HIM:
be honest to urself.. do u really think i would/could screw up w ur head?

12:11 pm
Me:
Kris, I’ve seen you flirt with girls left and right. You’ve been with girls who you’ve screwed over.

I’ve never seen this side of you – and that’s my fault because I’ve always seen you in a certain light. But it does make me wonder if all this is just something that you’ve said to so many other people.

HIM:
did u consider urself answering that question? or was it all just abt me?

Me:
I did. It was my perception and I could very well be wrong about everything.

HIM:
i wonder who u think i screwed over.. im not sure u can prove that.. but it doesn’t matter.. i’m just wondering.. =D

Me:
Does it matter?

HIM:
it’s a matter of thought.. i mean i don’t deny i did screw some ladies up.. but there are those i didn’t.. i respect them.. and i think i wouldn’t like the thought of people thinking they got screwed.. but that’s all in d past now..

12:32 pm
Me:
I don’t want to judge you based on what you did – I can’t. My own moral compass doesn’t exactly point north either. But I had to ask because apparently it’s very different when I’m part of the picture.

HIM:
maybe because u’ve never been in d picture.. u were an observer of something u’r in now.. and surprisingly, the experience is different from the perception.. or i could be way over my head now..

Me:
What do you mean by you might be way over your head now?

HIM:
baka kasi kumakapal na ung mukha ko for even thinking that i could be this close to you

Me:
Hindi naman

HIM:
what if game:
say u can do what u want, and u will not be judged by me, what would u want to do? say you can ask what u want, what wud u want from me?

no judging..

12:45 pm
Me:
Everything

HIM:
‘everything’ can’t be judged for it’s infinity.. u wanna give something that CAN be judged, else, the ‘no judging’ rule is void..

Me:
How complicated naman

HIM:
not if u’r not afraid to be judged.. it’s a practical question, that’s why it’s just a game..

1:02 pm
Me:

Hahaha… In the perfect world, I would ask for everything – your time, your presence, your attention, your affection. I want to come first, second and third. I’m low maintenance, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m an uptown girl. And all that’s not just because I’m a prima donna, but because I know I’m worth it.

No judgement, right?

1:43 pm
HIM:
kiss*

Me:
Baby, it’s almost 2 pm.. Shouldn’t you be sleeping na?

HIM:
ima sleep now hun..

(Kris calls, I was not able to pick up)
Me:
Hey sorry I missed your call. I was teaching dance. What’s up?

HIM:
just wanted to hear ur voice that’s all

2:02 pm
Me:
Sorrt, sweetie 😦

Rest well, okay? You haven’t been sleeping much since we started texting. Baka magkasakit ka.

5:55 pm
Me:
Hey… Prep for work na 🙂

6:34 pm
Me:
Hey you… 🙂 Baby, it’s 6:30 na. You are going to be SO late!!!

HIM:

Me:
Hahaha… Akala ko kakagising mo lang. How many hours of sleep did you get?

6:48 pm
HIM:
4hours.. yep, kakagising ko lang bec of he call in.. What r u doing?

Me:
Singing along to a jazz cd 🙂 We’re done na! I survivied Day 2!

HIM:

7:08 pm
Me:
Not yet. We’re still in the training venue. I’m too tired to stand up and start walking. You ready for work na?

HIM:

Me:
What time’s your shift ba?

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

Me:

Me:

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

Me:
Weh :p Hahaha… Ang lamig dito!!!

HIM:
23 degrees tonight.. not the coldest but cold.. wish i were there..

Me:

7:45 pm
Me:
Homaygaaaaad! Ang tagal ng shuttle! Naninigas na ako sa lamig.

HIM:

Me:
Wala. Room lang. Nakahiga na ako sa steps. Lol!

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

Me:
And sarap sa back. Tumatama kasi yung corner eh.

Me:

HIM:

Me:
Sabi ko nga. May shuttle na!!!

HIM:

8:03 pm
Me:
Oh yaaaaaaay! I love my bed!

HIM:

Me:
Haha… I’m in the hotel room na kasi.

HIM:

Me:
Haha… Not I’m too tamad to change my clothes. Hindi pa kaya kami kumakain.

HIM:
lam mo, ok lang yan pagiging tamad.. it’s one of my favorite ‘virtues’.. pero wag mo papabayaan ung sarili mo.

8:16 pm
Me:
Hahaha… Not by choice naman ang hindi pa pagdidinner noh. The food is supposed to be brought here sa room kasi we’re not attending tonight’s socials na.

At obviously, wala pa ung food. Hassle. First time today pa naman that I actually want to eat something.

HIM:
dadating din un.. magbihis ka na muna..

Me:
I’m too lazyyyy…

HIM:

Me:
Shet… Sabi ko nga eh. 😛

HIM:

Me:
Done na :p

HIM:

9:23 pm
Me:
At the office na? Naidlip na talaga ako!

HIM:

10:11 pm
HIM:

Me:
Hey Baby 🙂

HIM:

Me:
I just woke up 😛 Kadadating lang kasi ng food.

10:30 pm
HIM:

Me:

HIM:

Me:
Well, I come home tomorrow and my schedule’s prety normal until the night of the 4th… So we’ll find time.

10:45 pm
HIM:

Me:
Looking forward to seeing me?

11:03 pm
HIM:
More than excited..

11:19 pm
Me:
Me too, baby 🙂

Me:
Shit I have to go back to the training venue!

HIM:
really? u wanna see me?

HIM:
why baby?

Me:
Yes, really 🙂

Thr mayor of Valenzuela is here and so now we have to make an appearance. (details undisclosed)

HIM:
aww.. how long will that take? baka naman saglit lang..

Me:
Juice ko, I hope so. Pag nawala ang antok ko I’ll be awake the whole night!

Whatcha doin na?

HIM:

11:34 pm
Me:
Aww, baby, you make me smile 🙂

HIM:
i can just imagine how much fun it may be.. =D

Me:
😀

Oh, baby, I’m cold and (word undisclosed) and apparently I have social skills left at 11:30 pm 😛

*          *          *

It’s screwed up how reading this again still makes me smile… How it still makes my heart ache a little. But that’s exactly why I’m doing this, you know. At the end of it all, I need to remember.

I’ll be the first to admit that it was good while it lasted. But I’ll always want to remember why the end hurt so much.



Ciao Bella!

Me:
Can’t your sister live with you in Makati?

Ako naman I don’t want to live in Makati :p

HIM:
house niya kasi ung nasa cavite.. she had that build for herself.. san mo gusto tumira?

Me:
I actually want to stay in either the pasig or manda area. But if I get really desperate, I’ll to makati in a heartbeat just to get out.

9:00 am
HIM:
but u work in makati..

Me:
Yup. But I like the trip eh 🙂 although admittendly, it’s hassle kasi I bring 2 bags every day.

HIM:
yeah and u should mind ur back hun

Me:
I know. E mas hassle naman when I get back to Manila – I have 3 bags, plus pasalubong, assuming I get to buy. And I’m commuting back – hindi na ako sasabay sa client.

HIM:
pano yan? teka before the condo san ka nakatira?

Me:
My aunt and I used to rent an apartment in Ecology Village – near don bosco. Before that I used to live in Wack-Wack (and Binondo).

Kaya yan. I’m going straight to Resorts World after arriving eh. So sa may Pasay terminal ako bababa. Wag lang ako mawala dun, oks na.

HIM:
bakit ka didiretso sa resorts world?

9:16 am
Me:
I’m meeting Sheryll 🙂

HIM:
oh.. cool.. =D

Me:
Hahaha… Magkakabit ang bituka namin these days eh.

HIM:
tama lang un.. she is a sensible friend especially now.. =D

Me:
Haha… I know. She’s been through 4 exes already and we’ve been friends for so long na din.

HIM:
that’s really admirable

Me:
Maiba lang… So how’s the whole OM thing working out for you?

HIM:
i like it but it’s tough.. it’s just a daily thing for me.. besides, work is work no matter what u do..

Me:
But are you happy?

HIM:
i am.. i got what i need to support other more impt things in my life..

Me:
That’s good 🙂

HIM:
pareho tayong happy.. =D

Me:
Haha… That’s true 🙂

HIM:
nakakain ka ba kanina sa stopover?

9:30 am
Me:
Yup. The client made us eat. Have you eaten?

HIM:
not yet.. kanina pa ako sa ofc gutom but i just wanna get home..

Me:
You should have picked something up along the way. Para at least you’re munching on something.

HIM:
diyahe naman sa kasama ko sa sasakyan.. hehe.. im good.. we’re texting..

Me:
Haha… Hindi naman sinabing kumain ka ng kanin noh. Lol.

I’m glad you don’t see the whole texting this as unedning pangungulit on my part.

HIM:
i like talking.. lucky me i got you texting me.. not just anyone can be satisfactory..

Me:
Haha… Lucky you, talaga? :p

9:45 am

Me:
Hmm… 🙂

HIM:

Me:
Bakit naman parang hindi kapani-paniwala?

HIM:
yeah.. ganun nga..

Me:
Any bug. Bakit naman?

HIM:
i dunno hun.. i just do not think it would happen.. maybe unless if it did..

Me:
Haha.. Why not?

HIM:

10:15 am
Me:
Sabi ko nga eh :p

HIM:

Me:
Eat?

HIM:

Me:
One day, then

HIM:

Swaying on my feet 😦

HIM:

Me:
Hahaha… Hindi naman kasama ang participants namin. Tulog na yung mga yun… (statement undisclosed). 3 lang kami dito.

HIM:
im sure u guys can meet up some place.. oh well.. i just imagine the pain of going around without checking in yet

Me:
I know, right? May acoustic band na tumutugtog. And to be fair listening to them isn’t sila cruel and unusual punishment. Lol!

9:15 pm
HIM:
ngehehe.. kasama mo na ba sila?

Me:
Yup. Kasi we had to buy stuff for training. E ako ang naglalabas ng pera. Wala na kaya akong pamasahe pauwi. Hehe

HIM:

Me:
Weh. Papautangin mo ko.

HIM:

Me:
Haha… Ayaw 🙂

HIM:

Me:
Talaga? Binayaran mo ba yun?

HIM:
oo naman noh.. hahaha..

Me:
Hahaha… Malay ko ba. Lol.

HIM:
excuse me naman! hehehe

Me:
You’re excused! Lol!

HIM:
haaay.. ako nanaman ang pinagti-trip-an mo.. sige lang.. =p

Me:
Hanap nalang ako ng ibang pagtitripan?

HIM:

9:31 pm
Me:
Ahahaha 🙂

HIM:

Me:
:p

HIM:

Me:
Okay lang 🙂 My kind of place eh.

HIM:
that’s good.. =D

Me:
How’s the office naman? Not a busy night?

HIM:
hopefully not a busy one.. apart from the scheduled meetings.. sana walang issue to disturb..

9:45 pm
Me:
Goodluck naman. Ops ka pa man din. kelan ba naman nawalan ng problema yun?

HIM:
minsan nawawalan naman.. =D

10:02 pm
Me:
Sana nung AM pa ako naranasan ko yun 😦

HIM:
i know right.. we had good time back then..

Me:
When Booie was my manager, I was on top of the world. Nung naging AM asko ng sbrc, gabi-gabi iniiyakan ko ang sla at absenteeism.

10:20 pm
HIM:
grabe kasi dati.. daming pasaway, and the TMs didnt have an idea how to handle it..

Me:
And I was a bad AM

HIM:
that’s not true hun.. what happened with the changes took us all by surprise..

Me:
Juice ko – ang daming changes sa last two years ko sa sykes, witht he non-confirmation and then the redundiation. May left over bitterness pa ako. Lol!

HIM:
ganun ba? i think that’s normal and u simply have to let urself go through the process

10:30 pm
Me:
Hahaha… Oi, at least I can laugh about it now noh. There was a time na sinumpa ko talaga ang (company name undisclosed). The height of my bitterness yun. Lol

HIM:
good to know that u can laugh about it now.. no more hang ups anymore?

Me:
No na 🙂 Life is too short for wallowing in things that didn’t work out.

HIM:
ayuz! manuti naman!

Me:
Lol

HIM:
it will be nice if we get to talk about the good times when we meet

Me:
We’ll get to do that one day. At lalabas talaga ang pagiging laitera ko. Ganyan ako when waking down memory lane eh.

10:56 pm
HIM:
hahaha.. im sure i will enjoy that..

Me:
Lol! Tapos mapupunta sayo ang panlalait ko.

HIM:
ok lang..

Me:
Weh

HIM:
ayaw mo maniwala?

Me:
At kung ayaw ko nga?

HIM:
bakit naman ayaw mong maniwala?

Me:
Wala lang 🙂

HIM:
haha.. u’r just going to see for urself then..

Me:
Lol. Sabi ko nga eh. Shet, antok na ako. May session planning pa kami pagbalik sa hotel.

HIM:

Me:
Nakapagkape na nga eh.. Balik na kami sa hotel in a while.

HIM:

Me:

11:18 pm
HIM:

Me:
Lol. Hindi pa pwede! Gagawa pa kami ng session plan 😥

HIM:

Me:

HIM:

HIM:

Me:
For tonight? Yup. Marvin and I have known each other naman for so long na. Pero bukas, I really don’t want to room with a participant.

HIM:
i think roomies are just fine.. =D

Me:
Consultant roomies are fine. (next statement undisclosed). I don’t like people nga eh.

*          *          *

Reading this again and writing it down made me… sad.

You never got to see me cry, old man. You didn’t then – not over books, over tv shows or over movies – and now you never will.  Not even over you.



Ciao Bella!

49 in ’12: V is for Vengeance – Getting to Know You, Day 2

I guess every conversation begins will a little bit of reminiscing… And then you start sharing little details about yourself… And before you know it, almost 12 hours of texting have passed. And let me tell you… transcribing nearly 12 hours worth of SMS messages is not easy.

*          *          *

April 25, 2012

1:33 am
Me:
Ayan, pauwi na ako

2:23 am
HIM:
just read ur msg.. goodnight.. =D

8:11 am
Me:
Hey 🙂 Hindi na talaga ako nakapagreply kagabi at nawalan nalang ata sko ng malay when I got to the condo. Lol

8:43 am
HIM:
good morning.. =D

Me:
Morning, Kris 🙂 Home na?

HIM:
not yet.. im attending an investment offer in BDO.. im w She and other employees.. =D Still at home?

Me:
Oooops! Istorbo ba?

I just left the condo. I’ll be so sabog today! Lol

HIM:
oh well puyat ka na uminom ka pa when u dont really drink and u have not done it in a long while.. sabog ka nga.. =D

9:17 am
Me:
Lol. This is actually late for me going to the office – I usually go to work at 6:30 or 7.

And it was a half a bottle of beer! I really can’t hold my liqour eh.

HIM:
ayy.. late ka na.. matipid ka pala kainuman.. haha

Me:
Actually, wala akong kwentang kainuman.

Wala naman kaming time card sa office eh. Work starts at 8:30, but I’m usually there by 7:30. Earlier if I meet someone for breakfast or coffee.

HIM:
im usually on d way home at 730.. nakainuman naman kita before (by extension) hindi naman masyadong walang kuwenta.. hehe

Me:
When was that??? I don’t remember that at all

9:33 am
HIM:
PB outings

Me:
Really? Hehehe… I didn’t even think I went to that many outings. I’m not exactly a people person.

HIM:
hindi halata.. we had officer’s hotel night when u were my AM, we also had batangas…

Me:
Oh. Batangas. That I remember.

HIM:
and bulacan

Me:
Wait, I’m getting all confused now. Where was the one when I asked you to sing?

HIM:
in batangas and in the hotel.. the concert thing for the agents where ka roger won was in bulacan

Me:
Hmmm… Ang naaalala ko talaga ay batangas. Siguro naman you’re on your way home na.

HIM:
yep i am.. yep batangas.. that was dandy’s teambldg.. i was in d room together w ur bf, we were talking while u guys were texting..

Me:
We weren’t together then. Not yet, at least.

And that wasn’t why I remembered Batangas. Lol

HIM:
ngehehe.. ok..

10:50 am
Me:
Lol. I have other memories of that night – particularly when I was singing Run to You while being videod.

How long does it take you to get home? Layo mo na!

HIM:
i was the one who asked u to sing that..
1.5 hrs travel home..
almost there.. =D

Me:
You were? 🙂 and I asked you to sing If You’re Not the One.

HIM:
you did? i didnt remember that detail..

Me:
I always ask you to that

HIM:
i guess that makes sense.. no one else asks me to sing that

Me:
I really like that song kasi. And, so far, you’re the only one who does it justice.

11:05 am
HIM:
not sure abt being still able to.. hehe..

Me:
sayang naman :p

HIM:
home now.. watcha doin?

11:30 am
HIM:
going to bed now.. have fun!

11:58 am
Me:
Homaygay… I’m so sorry… Super tagal ko magreply! I was talking to my boss – and that usually lasts for an hour (or two).

I’m off to edsa shang to observe another facilitator. Sleep well, Kris 🙂 Have good dreams.

6:14 pm
(after chatting in fb)
Me:
Hey 🙂 Sorry I had to shut down real quick. Saw you typing something pa :p

HIM:
that’s fine.. it’s not as if u’ll lose the msg.. =D
Txt u later

Me:
Lol. Malay mo mabura. Lol!

Go prep for work na.

7:03 pm
HIM:
how r u?

Me:
Eto, pumipila sa cab queue. On your way to work na?

HIM:
yep.. di ba delikado mag text while in queue

Me:
Sana hindi. Lol. E ang haba kaya ng pila. I’m so bored noh!

HIM:
that sucks.. marunong ka bang mang api ng ibang tao sa paligid mo even alone?

Me:
Of course! It’s a goddess-given talent, along with singing, writing and being sarcastic 🙂

I just don’t day it out loud lest people start looking at me funny.

HIM:
good.. that can help the boredom.. =D

Me:
Lol. I know, right?

HIM:
malamng bulungan tayo nang bulungan if i were there.. har har har

7:15 pm
Me:
Lol. Fun! 🙂 unless I whisper something in your ear and accidentally use my trainer voice.

HIM:
nyahaha.. ok lang basta malayo yung subject.. =p

Me:
Hay naku. Kahit gaano pa sya kalayo, kaya syang abutin ng trainer voice ko. Plus I laugh really loud.

Yay! Nakasakay na ako.

HIM:
nice.. diretso bahay ka na? i really wish u wud not wisper in my ear using a trainer voice.. laughing out loud is fun though.. hehehe

Me:
Haha.. I’m going straight to the condo. I need to pack my stuff for tomorrow. I leave at 3:30 eh.

HIM:
oh early in bed tonight then.. dont miss your dinner..

Me:
I wish lang I can sleep agad.. I don’t sleep very well eh.

And I don’t eat dinner :p Not usually, anyway.

HIM:
u can sleep i d trip then.. u have a ride?

Me:
We’re riding with the client going up. Then going down, uwi na kami on out own.

HIM:
hope it’s not too crowded then.. i never tried driving up to baguio.. mahirap yata un.. bus lang lagi when i go there, and i take the middle seats para least humps..

7:31 pm
Me:
I think we’re taking a bus too. I’ve ridden a car up to baguio – but that was waaaaa back when I was younger. We got into an accident and that’s how I hurt my back.

HIM:
until now?

Me:
My back? Yup… Kaya madaling sumakit ang lower back ko.

HIM:
some limitations in massages when u’r in a SPA too?

Me:
As long as the massage isn’t too hard, it’s okay.

Those are the kinds of things people don’t usually know na about me.

HIM:
thanks for being one of the few.. =D

Me:
Haha… It’s nothing. I’m an open book naman eh. People just have to figure out which questions to ask.

HIM:
i should congratulate myself then.. improving! haha

Me:
Hahaha… Little talks!

HIM:
right! im actually glad abt that.. haha

7:45 pm
Me:
Haha.. It’ll get easier. It’s cones naturally to some people, but it can be learned.

HIM:
i have confidence issue that’s why i didn’t get used to these things.. but i’m learning..

Me:
I’m sorry… YOU have confidence issues???

HIM:
i know a lot of people may be surprised but i think it comes out obviously to some peeps.. hindi ba talaga halata? =(

Me:
Hindi. And you overcompensate, I think and it doesn’t come out well. Tell me if I’m being too blunt ha. I’m trying to work on that.

HIM:
that’s fine.. im glad if i can talk about anything w someone w respectable intellect.. basta ba private conversation lang.. haha

Me:
Lol… True, true… Very few people are up to lengthy conversations these days.

HIM:
obviously, im a talker

Me:
Obviously :p

HIM:
u still not home?

8:21 pm
Me:
Just arrived. And I finally say your message. Lol.

In fb, I mean.

HIM:
lagi nalang ako nale late bec of my bathroom time.. di na nadala..

Me:
Bathroom time?

8:30 pm
HIM:
yeah when i bathe before going to work

Me:
Gaano ka ba katagal maligo?

HIM:
sometimes 40min sometimes 60.. matagal na sakin un kasi my travel time is long too

Me:
Seriously? 40 minutes? It takes me 20 to take a bath!

I might be bothering you at work ha.

HIM:
it’s fine.. i reply if i can.. i let the water run over me and relax.. i shave.. kasama na ung brushing of teeth doon

8:46 pm
Me:
Tagal pa din! Haha.. The only thing that takes me so long in the shower is shampooing

HIM:
ah saglit lang yan sakin obviously.. im a bit tall, so i takes time to soap and scrub every inch

Me:
I’m not tall at all, but my hair is long and thick. I guess that explains it :p My shower, anyway.

HIM:
oh and i have difficulty reaching my back so it affects the ‘handle time’ too.. haha

Me:
Lol. Difficulty reaching your back? You sure that isn’t old age? Lol.

HIM:
it’s more of the size.. hehe

Me:
If you say so… ;p

9:00 pm
HIM:
haha.. i play basketball.. i don’t have problems aging.. hehe

Me:
You play regularly now? The last memory of you playing basketball was when you were so proud of the 2 points you scored in one of the pb games.

HIM:
im still proud of those things.. i cant be very good at it anymore since i only started playing that i guess 3yrs back? but i can be active in d court.

Me:
Hey, I’m not saying anything 🙂

HIM:
haha.. im not embarassed at all.. nyehehe..

Me:
Okay, old man 🙂

HIM:
haha.. im turning 33.. that’s old.. in numbers! =p

Me:
When are you turning 33?

9:15 pm
HIM:
November

Me:
I’ll have to remember that

HIM:
and when is your birthday?

Me:
March

HIM:
ayyy tapos na.. march what? care to tell me ur age?

Me:
March 5 🙂 I turned 31 this year

HIM:
u look a lot better than any 31yr old i know

Me:
Haha… Thanks. I think it’s such a lie, but thanks anyway. Lol!

HIM:
it’s not.. it’s a matter of perception..

9:32 pm
Me:
Admittedly, your perception of me is very flattering 🙂

HIM:
my pleasure.. =D

Me:
🙂

HIM:
baka pagod ka na.. nagpapahinga ka na ba?

Me:
Yup… Just lying in bed, watching The Good Wife.

HIM:
is it a lady type series?

Me:
Courtroom drama

HIM:
oh yeah i kindof saw an advertisement of that

Me:
It’s a good show – good cast, good plot, good dialogue. And it’s smart.

10:03 pm
HIM:
baka maluto ang utak ko jan.. pang friends ako tsaka heroes.. walking dead.. spartacus.. naruto.. nyehehe

Me:
I’ve never watching walking dead and spartacus. Ang naruto hindi na talaga masundan. Haha… Pang samurai x at ghostfighter lang ang interest level ko. Lol

10:39 pm
HIM:
oh yeah sam x and ghost fighter.. kasi maikli.. naruto has a very deep story that’s why i like it..

*          *          *

Him: And you are?
Her: Very amused and slightly interested

Let’s see if you remember in March, old man.

More to come… Until next time.

48 in ’12: V is for Vengeance – The Beginning, Day 1

“Sometimes making a bad decision is better than making no decision at all.” One of the films that I show in training says that. I’ve always agreed. But now, seeing as how I was caught in the middle of a no-decision situation, I understand it in a whole different level.

In light of recent events, I have decided to write (transcribe) a series about, well, HIM. It is not my way of telling the world about how I was screwed over – I can’t place all the blame on him. It was partly my fault, after all. But it’s time to tell the truth… and let the pieces fall where they may.

For those of you who knew this was coming, enjoy. For those of you who come upon it, take the red pill and see the world from my eyes. For those of you who this is written for, I hope you find it. And I hope the truth gives you a thousand paper cuts that refuse to heal. And then I’ll pour the acid.

Yes, I am still in my Angry Phase.

April 24, 2012

HIM:
ds my number kris riva =D

Me:
Very kewl. Go prep for work 🙂

HIM:
can you do your question again pls, i don’t understand one part of it..

Me:
Sorry, which part isn’t clear?

HIM:
the first part

Me:
Okay… Guys breaks up with me, right? Now he’s being all whiny about it. Normal ba yun?

HIM:
oh.. that cud mean many thhings.. opposite extremes really.. depends on d person i guess.. some guys are girls bec they’re confused.. they ‘want’ the break up but they can’t live w it (normal in lengthy relationships i guess)..

some crafty inglorious guys do it for show to un/consciously lash more emo sadism to the other party.. some other guys w low EQ (to my opinion) do it simply bec they’s just how they are..

Me:
Oh my gad!… You guys talaga!

HIM:
i could easily be wrong dear

Me:
Dear? 🙂 And you could just as easily be right… Or (other parties mentioned may have their names deleted) is really just such a GIRL!!!

HIM:
u’r a meany… =p

Me:
I always said I was a bitch.

HIM:
define bitch

Me:
I’m opinionated. I know what I want and I got after it. I’ll tell you as it is because i don’t believe in sugarcoating. I’m not a goody-goody. I defy what is considered to be “socially acceptable”. Should I go on?

HIM:
ok.. stop right there, baka magkagusto na ako sayo.. so are u girls really such bitches when breaking up w men u dated for years?

Me:
Only when they act like such girls.

“Baka magkagusto na ako sa’yo” – winner ka, dude

HIM:
haha.. i’m just messing w you.. pero winner talaga ako..

Me:
Ayan nanaman yang kayabangan mo eh. Okay na eh.

HIM:
no pun ntended in that.. sobbrang corny na nga ng patawa ko nayabangan ka naman.. haha.. sorry, disconnect.. =D

Me:
Hahahaha… Consequences of tryin to delivering a punchline through text. Lol.

HIM:
i like it when im dorky.. but sometimes it comes out differently.. =p

Me:
Dorky? When have you ever been dorky? Dorky people are endearing – and don’t date ask me what endearing means!

HIM:
lagi kaya… malas lang.. =p

Me:
Kung consistent, hindi na malas ang tawag dun.

HIM:
im sure hindi naman consistent ang kamalasan ko.. sorry naman sa mga di pa nakaka’malas’.. nyehehe..

Me:
Are you sure??? Lol!

Hindi pa swerte ang mga hindi pa nakaka’malas’?

HIM:
hmmm.. sarcasm.. mahina ako jan.. suko na ako.. talo na.. white flag.. surrender.. maawa ka sakin pls..

Me:
Ay ako naman naguumapaw ang sarcasm ko. I just get away with a lot of shit because I’m malambing magsalita

HIM:
ikr.. it’s fun being around such peeps.. wag lang ako ung victim.. nakakatakot!

Me:
Hahahaha… Now I’m wondering if I’ve ever “victimized” you before without you knowing it.

HIM:
im sure u have, one way or another.. but i dont want to think abt that anymore..

Me:
Hahaha… Why not??

HIM:
