Enraptured Reality

Phantasm. Bewilderment. Clairvoyance.

Once Again

Once again, we’re here

Taking chances, taking risks

With no certainty to hold, not a clue

Not even a single glimpse of tomorrow

And not even an idea;

How do I stop thinking?

How do I know?

Am I doing it right?

Or does it just feel right?

~

Once again, I’m asking questions

Questions that can only be answered if I take a leap of faith;

And once again, it’s faith that’s yet to be tested,

And I don’t know.

I don’t know what to believe.

I don’t know how to believe.

I don’t know when to believe.

All I know is that once again, I’m inside this room,

A colorless room without corners.

~

Where do we go?

Do I have to take your hand, even though you’re unknown?

Do I have to run away and just leave you alone?

Do I have to go to your direction?

Do I have to make my own way?

Once, I was lost

But once again, I am found;

I just don’t want to lose myself once again,

Not anymore.

After Rain

~

Let me tell you something you’ve never heard before

Or maybe let me help you see things better, all the more

Let me write another story for this newly opened door

New places, new heights, new songs are all there

Smiles and sunshines and dances everywhere;

~

And as I look outside my window,

I know

I have seen another rainbow

Way more beautiful than all the rainbows I’ve ever seen before.

Randomly Today 02

Writing

this random blog post because I’m already at my weekend mood. Hello, Friday.

Listening

to Left Alone by blink-182.

Thinking

about law school. I’m claiming it. Claudine will go to law school on 2017!

Smelling

the smell of the coffee. This is always addictive.

Wishing

for this day to end soon. Hahaha I wanna go home and get back to watching series again!

Hoping

to make it to my appointment at Lay Bare tonight. It’s female time, folks.

Wearing

a white Korean-style mini dress, black leggings and black white-floral sneakers.

Loving

that I was able to submit the required reports on time and that it’s already Friday! Yay!

Wanting

to eat lunch. It’s already 11 and I didn’t eat breakfast so… Fastforward to 12 noon, please. I also want to get back to fitness.

Needing

enough motivation to continue my tasks. I shouldn’t be blogging right now, you know. And I need to find the perfect workout for me, or perhaps a gym. Whatever. I need to work my tummy out.

Feeling

sleepy. I slept at around past 2 AM because I was having a video call with someone… LOL. And then I woke up at 4:15 AM because I have to go to work. Yes, I know I should’ve slept earlier.

HP & The Cursed Child Reservation at Fully Booked

I wasn’t able to get a copy when J.K. Rowling‘s Harry Potter and The Cursed Child was first released in the Philippines. I could’ve actually bought from National Bookstore but I wanted the copy that Fully Booked was selling so I opted to wait for the restock.

And guess what? Fully Booked is finally restocking The Cursed Child! I’ve had my reservation yesterday at Fully Booked – Greenbelt 5 to secure my copy. I can’t wait to have the book in my hands! I know only my fellow Potterheads could understand the excitement that I have now.

Just so you know, I don’t have copies of the books, but I’ve read them all through borrowing the copies from the school library and friends. Now that I can finally buy as many books as I can, the desire never stops. I’m planning to buy the whole series to reread (and rewatch) them all.

Yay! See you soon, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child!

37th MIBF & Gotti’s

37 of #100HappyThings

It was the first day of the 37th Manila International Book Fair yesterday. After work, Lynsey and I met at SM Mall of Asia before heading out to the SMX Convention Center to score new books at discounted prices.

After paying the Php 20.00 for the MIBF ticket, we went to Fully Booked‘s nook. I really didn’t have a book in mind, so I took my time looking for something new to hoard (lol). It was fun – and of course, really hard – to decide what books to buy. If only I had unlimited resources, I would’ve bought everything I could!

I was able to take home two gems from the MIBF. I know I still have a long list of pending books to read but… Who cares? Books are love!

After our book hoarding date, Lynsey and I had our dinner at Gotti’s Ristorante at MOA. We asked for their bestseller for the pizza and since I was craving for lasagna, we ordered one plate as well.

The guys from Gotti’s were nice and they only have 5% service charge. It was indeed a good try.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how bookworm friends bond together.
