I got bored so I decided to ride on to this Twitter trending hashtag/topic  #50factsaboutme. Now, here’s my list on the 50 facts about me:

1. I believe in Jesus Christ, so I am a Christian.

2. I admire and love my Mom and Dad, they are the best and awesomest parents in the world for me hehe.

3. I am close with my sisters, that eventhough we are not young anymore we still sleep in one bed.

4. I am a people-person, I believe hehe.

5. I have this ‘selective memory’ thing coz I purposely (sometimes) forget unimportant or even important things. Pls don’t ask me why. Hehe

6. I am a big fan of Youtube celebs such as Aj Rafael, Ryan Higa, JR Aquino, Kevjumba, Mikey Bustos, Victor Kim, etc. I love their vids, they keep me sane.

7. The only books that I’ve read completely are the books written by Bob Ong and Pastor Ru dela Torre. Yes, that is true. I am not bookish.

8. I love photography and travelling. If they will offer me a job that will require me to travel and take photos with their own expense, even they will not provide a salary, I will SURELY go for it.

9. I am adventurous and somehow a risk-taker. I still go for something even if it cost my life.

10. I have a very short attention span. Probably, I can only stand listening to someone a maximum of 15-20 min. The rest of it, I tend to ignore. hehe

11. I dislike people who always rant about life because I believe in positivity. I always want the feeling of being blessed and encouraged.

12. I tweet but I am not a twitterwhore. Believe me. Haha.

13. Some friends call me the ‘social media queen’ because I am always online. Well, I guess somehow I am. But that doesn’t automatically mean that I am addicted to it, I still have a life outside.

14. I enjoy organizing get together parties, out-of-town/country trips, events, etc. Probably, someday I’ll be able to put up my own company that manages events.

15. I am more of a listener than a speaker.

16. Math is not my thing. We are not friends with numbers, that is for sure.

17. I dreamt of becoming a star/celebrity/broadcaster. Well, who knows it still might come true?! haha!

18. Movies/films are my bestfriends. They also keep me sane.

19. I believe in music, just like how others believe in fairytales.

20. I have a special someone who has been there for me in the last 6years already.

21. Smiling is my therapy. If I don’t smile, I feel naked.

22. Earrings, cameras, and phones are my fetish.

23. I collect Starbucks’ tumblers with the different places/cities/countries printed on it.

24. Whenever I am down I go out for a walk then eat anything.

25. I enjoy hanging out with people from different countries, races, cultures, etc. I felt that I learn a lot if I hangout with them.

26. I believe that school marks/grade or whatever degree you finish is only important when you are looking for job. In the real world, it’s always how you deal with people and with the job itself.

27. I always go for quality over quantity.

28. Food loves me. Haha! I can go/try anything from the most exotic to the most famous ones. I’ve tried crocodile meat, field rat meat, tamilok (woodworm), dog meat, durian, marang, ants (hantik), etc…

29. I love sayings, quotes, Bible verses, poems, etc. These things guide me somehow and when I am encouraged I have the tendency to share it to other people coz I want them also to be encouraged as well.

30. My bed is my comfort zone. You cannot disturb me when I am with my bed. It’s my rule. Haha

31. When I was young, my nickname was Mariel (a combi of Maria Adrielle), but since I cannot pronounce ‘r’ and ‘l’, Mariel became Mayen. And it evolved to Yeyen, and now, Yhen.

32. I always have a birthday party in my home before, from the moment I was born until my secondary (highschool) days. However, when I started to be independent and study away from home, I realized party is only just for kids. Hehe.

33. Green is my fave color. Next is torquoise. These colors are so pleasing in my eyes.

34. I was one-of-the-boys before. I enjoy their company simply because boys are not complicated, unlike girls they are so hard to understand. I even dress like a boy before, but nah, I am not a tomboy, I was just boyish.

35. My hair was so curly and bulky when I was a kid. It can even attract lies. Haha!

36. I got drowned twice already. First, when I was 5 in a pool at Los Banos, Laguna and second, when I was 14 in a beach we call Pangil in Currimao, Ilocos Norte.

37. I fantasized Ryan Gosling. Who doesn’t, anyway? haha!

38. I am hooked to TV series like The Big Bang Theory, Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, Are We There Yet, and Dawson’s Creek.

39. I was a big fan of Moffats, Backstreetboys, Westlife, N’Sync, and even A1. Darn these boy bands! Haha! Now, I am loving One Direction and The Wanted. Oh my word! Spare me haha!

40. I used to be an active blogger and bloghopper but as time passed by, I felt that blogging is just important to me whenever I feel really (really) bored. Maybe because there are other platforms already like Facebook and Twitter.

41. For me, Parokya ni Edgar, is the greatest Filipino band of all-time. Since their music can go from the sweet-type to the most hardcore rock songs which gave the audience more varieties making them perhaps to be the oldest existing band in the country.

42. I am a cry-baby. Period. Haha.

43. I cannot stand mediocrity. I always want to go for excellence bcoz I believe God created me/us to be extraordinary people. So we should not settle for less.

44. I can easily forgive someone at fault. And saying I am sorry, If I am at fault, isn’t also too hard for me to express. Try me. haha!

45. I am in good friends with Google. Surely, you are, too. Haha!

46. My crush in highschool is my crush until now. I don’t know, but I really find that guy attractive. Ohemmmgeee! So kidstuff haha!

47. To dress-up is a must for me whenever I attend events.

48. I am not a bookish but I really enjoy going to the bookstores.

49. Prayer is my weapon… when I am weak, insecure, sad, scared, depress, confused, tempted, discouraged, sick, broke, stressed, and feeling empty. TRUST ME, IT ALWAYS WORKS.

50. I always thank God in good or bad times. I really see to it that my heart is always  grateful.

I think that would be all for now. Maybe you can also share your own version of the ’50factsaboutme’ and post it here on my comment box. ヅ

this past few days, ang dami kong realizations in life. realizations na pumapasok nalang kung saan saan depende sa binibigay na circumstances. may tungkol sa pag-ibig… may tungkol sa buhay… may tungkol sa pamilya… at may tungkol din sa pakikipagrelasyon sa kapwa… iba-iba talaga eh.

ang dating tinatawag kong resolutions ay naging realizations na. mas maganda kasing tignan ang bagay na natututunan kesa ang bagay na plinaplano palang at walang kasiguruhan.

I was so amazed how the heaven cleared the grounds after a heavy rainfall –  creating a majestic scene in the City of Pines, Baguio, last Saturday.

First, a raibow showed up in the sky symbolizing hope for everyone. I am always reminded of God’s promise that rainbow is a sign na hindi na niya hahayaang bumaha pa sa mundo. Kaya let’s thank Him everytime na may umagang nagigising pa tayo.

DSC04253 copymoreover, the picturesque view reminded me of how colorful my college life was. i miss the old days. i miss schooling, yeah i really do. i miss old friends. i miss my school, SLU. i miss the cold weather. i miss the smell of pine trees. i miss night lifes at session road. i miss coffee breaks. oh Gosh, i really miss this place. if there’s a place that i would always remember, it would be Baguio.

random thoughts

this is a random post. just to update what is happening. salamat sa pangungulit ni kuya dencio. hehe!

1. noong weekend me and my friends went out for a bonding moment (kunwari) so we decided to watch a movie. dahil nga probinsiya sa tatlong sinehan dalawang tagalog ang palabas, ang worst pa eh isang indie film na pinabibidahan ni katrina halili entitled Dalaw (ui interesado kang panuorin ano?) nwei ang isa naman ay isa pang indie film na pinamagatang Ded na c Lolo (or Lola ba yun) basta ang bida si roderick paulate. kaya we end up watching Night at the Museum 2.


actually di ako masyadong nag expect sa movie na ito dahil na bore ako sa part 1 niya pero in the end na enjoy ko naman siya. it was fun and maraming lessons in life. at isang line pa ang talagang tumatak sa akin, delivered by Ben Stiller who played the role Larry Daley saying:

You know how you were telling me that the key to happiness was something but then the sun came up? I think I figured it out. It’s doing what you love for the people you love.

Swak na swak db? so better watch that movie…

weekend at Pangasinan

despite sa tumataas na bilang ng mga naapektuhan ng H1N1 virus at ang mapanganib na banta ng dengue tulad nalang ng sabi ni DOH Sec Duque: the health department has recorded 193 confirmed A(H1N1) cases in a month. He added that public must also be equally wary of any suspected dengue cases as this is deadlier than swine flu. eh tumuloy pa rin ako at ang pag-ibig ko na pumunta ng Pangasinan upang makapag mall sa SM City Rosales.

Bid Malaysia goodbye with a smile…

the last day was definetely a rest day for the four of us, since the three days we’ve stayed in KL was a superpacked-tiring moments.

we stayed a night with our former boss at PhilRice, Dr. Leocadio Sebastion, who was then the Executive Director and now a director of Bioversity Institute base in Putrajaya and we spent our last day with him.

he brought us to the nearest mall in Putrajaya, if im not mistaken it is the Sun City, and have again a taste of malaysian food.


here, we have also tried another version of the ABC. it was really delightful to our sight which made us try again. however, i should say that the first ABC we tasted was better than this. looks can deceive huh! hehehe!


after having our lunch, we bought some pasalubongs and at 2PM we already got back to our boss’ condo. so this is our room, oo kwarto yan di lang obvious dahil magulo gamit namin. and the second pix is the picturesque view we can see through the window.



tapos dahil wala kaming magawa sa life, nanood nalang kami ng Slumdog Millonaire, siyempre pirated po ito (pasensiya na sir edu m. hehe!). at infairness malinaw ang pirata nang Malaysia. icompare sa atin mas maganda ang quality ng pamimirata nila.

in the evening naman, Azura Halim, our Malaysian friend, treated us in a fine dining resto na korteng ship siya (as seen in the second photo. diko lang sure if spaceship o ship na ship hehe!). gourmet ang handa dito, at infairness sarap talaga ng food.



bago pa kami naka uwi, binigyan kami ni Azura ng pabaon. natuwa kami kasi gusto talaga naming bumili ng ganito kaso naubusan kami ng time. hulog talaga siya nang langit nang makita naming ito ang ibingay niya. thank you again Azura wor this wonderful pabaon (brooch and necklace).


concluding our stay their was a surprised bday bash for our boss. kasi isang araw nalang bday niya na dat tym… kaya ayan we bought a delicously made cake. tapos siyempre anjan din ang kulitan…



so ayan… finally naikwento ko rin lahat sa inyo ang experiences ko sa Malaysia. salamat sa pagjoin sa akin sa adventure kong ito by having your posts on my page. sana na enjoy niyo ang bawat araw na gala namin sa Malaysia.

gusto mo bang magSingapore ng libre? wala lang baka interesado lang kayo check niyo site na ito.

hanggang sa sususnod na lipad! hehe!

Malaysia at its Finest (day 3)

ito na ang day3 nang aming gala sa Malaysia. ayoko na ding patagalin pa baka masira ang momentum. hehe. pasensiya medyo natagalan uli dahil sa sobrang dami ng ginagawa (alam niyo na mga naiwang trabaho nung gumala kami) at biyahe (na kung saan may mga kwento din ako sa mga susunod na kabanata).

para sa day 3 ang agenda… Sunway Lagoon. dito pwede mong piliin kung saan mo gustong pumunta… sa extreme park, amusement park, water park, wildlife park, at scream park. dahil nga adrenalin rush ang habol ng mga kasama ko Extreme Park ang pinili namin. of course at first kabado talaga ako dahil puro perstym lahat ng gagawin ko, pero wala akong choice dahil ito gusto ng mga kasama ko. kakalungkot nmn kung clang tatlo sa extreme park tapos ako naglilibot sa ibang park… hehe.. so heto na.

ang una, picture sa background (katibayan ba…)


dahil wala kaming sinayang na oras ito ang aming mga adventures… paintball, atv riding, paragliding (flying fox), wall climbing (na sila lang ang gumawa), kayaking, at jumping… hehe.










ayan, mga super extreme na stunts… to quote yung nagconvince sa akin na magparaglide, isa siyang magandang nilalang diko alam kung anong nationality niya, “this is only once in a lifetime!” kaya go lang ng go.
