A Love that Can Last a Life Time

I don’t know if I can take note of ¬†this in a short summary. As of the moment, I just really want to write about Love… well, my love life. most women are suckers for love right? lol. we have always adored romance. Let me talk about my own experience. it sounds too dreamy but it really happened to me, to us (my boyfriend) . Some people think that younger people than them starting from childhood at least until the age 23 are not capable of truly loving. my boyfriend is 11 years older than me. I’m 21 and he’s 32. they didn’t believe we could ever last seriously for so long. It feels so good to prove people are wrong right? but I felt even better proving that I love him more than proving people we could last even longer as they think we can. I feel so blessed to have this honor of experiencing a love that people see that can make a really good movie. there’s love, romance, action, drama, comedy and nearly everything in a film you would really be interested to watch. I don’t over exaggerate my life. that’s just how the way it is. my life seems so interesting except that you would never want to be in my shoe. It sounds fun and exciting. something you would really be curious about if I talk about it but you would never dare try to be me. because, well, my life is far too complicated.

This is what I posted in my FaceBook account on the week of our 10th monthsary (the first one in the tagalog and one I tried my best to write in english:

TAGALOG:

nung nasaktan ako na realize ko na ang gusto ko lang naman pag natuto akong mag mahal ulit … ipaglalaban nako. yung kahit ano pang pagsubok o tukso ang dumating, mapatutunayan talaga na hindi ako ipagpapalit at lalong lalo nang hindi ako iiwan. given na na masasaktan eh, kahit gaano kaayos ang pagsasama. kay Anthony Ray Manalo ko yun tunay na naramdaman ūüôā

inlove na kung inlove… given din naman na iba’t iba ang opinion ng tao sa relasyon ng kapwa nila. may positive, may negative din. alam ko siguro cheezy nga pero… totoo na may mga panahon na pag nagka tinginan kami sa malayo pakiramdam ko parang tumitigil ang oras. pakiramdam ko kahit na ang daming tao sa paligid namin, parang kami lang ang tao ng mga panahon na yun. yung pag nagkangitian kami sa malayo parang nakapag-usap na din kami ng matagal. na kahit na nasa magkabilang dulo kaming magkatapat sa napaka habang hallway parang ang lapit-lapit niya. Secret hand signals lang at body language nagkakaintindihan na. halos kabisado ko na bawat buka ng bibig nya kahit na walang boses na lumalabas. dun palang, malawak na ang pagkakaintindihan. tuwing nadadapa, magsasaluhan. walang nagpapabaya. masasabi mo na alagang alaga talaga kahit na hindi perfect. kahit na kausap ko siya mula umaga hanggang gabi walang kasawa sawa ang kwentuhan. pag baba palang ng phone, isang segundo lang miss na kaagad. pag nag goodnight, parang sana pag natulog ako 1 minute lang gising na, may araw na para maka skype agad ng umaga. ang bilis ng panahon kapag masaya ka sa piling ng taong mahal mo. sampung buwan na din pala? sampung buwan na ako alagang alaga. sampung buwan na nakakalipas nung sinabi niyang mahal niya ako ….. sampung buwan na din niya napatunayan yung sinabi niya. sa dami ng masasakit na nangyari sa amin, tama nga sila nung sinabi nilang success story ito. nakakatuwa din isipin. totoo palang may lalake na kung tratuhin ka parang dyamanteng mabilis mabasag. ingat na ingat. kasing takot din mawala ka sa kanya. parang ang laki ng halaga ko talaga. para din akong miss universe kung mang bola. kahit na nasa pinakamatabang timbang nako, sexy pa din “daw” , o kahit na ang sama na ng itchura ko kasi ang wasted ng dating ang ganda ganda ko pa din “daw” … pero, damang dama ko naman! haha. ganun siya mang bola. kasing effective ko! haha ūüėõ parang ako lang ang magandang babae sa mundo. ang pinaka. para ngang ako lang ang babae sa mundo eh. hindi ko naman aakalain kasi hindi ko naman inaasahan. gustong gusto ko sa kanya yung ugali niya na totoo. hindi niya sinasabi kung ano gusto ko madinig galing sa kanya. sinasabi niya kung ano talaga ang gusto niya sabihin. kami, hindi kami perfect couple pero… ito yung ideal. hindi yung ideal na sinasabi nilang tipong parang pangarap lang. ito yung ideal na katotohanan talaga. tuwing may pinagdadaanan kaming paghihirap sinasabi namin sa isa’t isa… for better or for worse. pero hindi lang sa salita. mayroon kasing pag ibig na puro bibig lang ang ginagamit. ito, pati sa gawa.

sana forever nanga talaga to. pero hanggat mahal niya ako. sasagadin ko na , susulitin ko pa. haha ūüôā kasi, mahal ko din siya ‚ô• mahal na mahal na mahal :”)

English:

When I got Heart Broken really bad I realized that what I truly wanted in a relationship is that if ever I would love again… this time I want to be fought for. That Even if great big trials and temptations come our way my guy could honestly prove that he would never choose someone else who’s more attractive over me. and most especially, prove that he would never leave me. It’s really a given thing that we would all get hurt in a relationship somewhere down the road whether in purpose or not, even if the relationship you’re in seems very smooth. It’s in Anthony that I have truly experienced what I thought was impossible in love this way.

yes, you can say that I’m too in love. but that doesn’t matter to me at all. It’s a given that every person has his or her opinion about others. there’s a positive reaction as well as negative reaction. maybe it would really sound cheesy and infact it is but .. It’s true to me that there are times when we meet eye to eye from afar when I just feel like time stops right there and then. I feel like although we’re in ¬†a room full of people, It felt like it was just anthony and I inside at that very moment. I always have the feeling that even if we’ve just met eye to eye in a distance It just always felt like we’ve already talked to each other for hours. Even if people tried their best to separate us end to end ¬†within a very long hallway it was like he was still standing so close in front of me. I can see his whole being.with only secret hand signals ¬†and body language we always understood each other. we’ve memorized each other so much that we could talk without using no voice at all and still understand each other. with every movement his lips made, I always understood what he wanted to say.¬†with just that, you would know that we truly understood and know each other so well by heart. every time one of us falls , we pick up each other again. we guided each other’s back. Even if ¬†we talk from morning until evening we never ran tired of talking, we had good conversation all the time. whenever I say goodbye and put my phone down, in just a minute I already miss him. whenever we say our goodnights, I just still couldn’t wait for the night to become day for just a minute and then I’d be awake to talk to him and see him in Skype right away every single morning. time really flies so fast when you’re happy in the arms of the one you love. We’ve knew each other so well in ten months. I didn’t realize it was ten months that he has taken very good care of me, ten months that passed since he first revealed he was in love with me and ten continuous months that he has proven he really truly loved me. can you imagine it was already ten months? despite of all the painful circumstances that happened to us , people were right when they said this love was really a success story. I feel so good just thinking about it. I never thought it was possible for a guy to literally treat you like you were a very fragile diamond that he was very afraid to break. he was always so careful. because he was also as afraid to lose me the same way as I’m afraid to lose him. I just really felt very precious and priceless.¬†I just really feel like the Miss Universe of his life. he knows that I’m at my heaviest pound, I can’t even wear my two-piece but he would always compliment me and say I’m really sexy. or even if I look so horrible at that moment he would always tell me I was so beautiful and I really felt that I am. I see it in his eyes. In the way he looks at me. he always describes me that way. he always makes me feel so beautiful. that I’m the only beautiful woman in the world. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL. infact, he makes me feel so special that at times I seem to feel like I’m the only woman existing! lol. I never thought this would ever happen to me because I never expected it to happen in my life. I really love how genuine of a person he is. he never says what I want to hear from him … he tells me what is really on his mind, what he really wants to say. anthony and I are not “THE” Perfect couple… this is the ideal one. not the ideal relationship that everyone see’s as a “dream relationship”. Our relationship is ideal because It’s reality¬† (not dreamy) . with every hardships and obstacles we go through in life we always remind each other that we can make it through by saying “for better or for worse”. not just through words just for the sake of saying it . we make it a point everyday to really prove each other that we can stay and be in love and love each other for better or for worse.

¬†I wish for this to last forever. but, as long as he loves me. I will maximize every moment of it and even make the most out of it. because… I also love him. I love him sooo verrry much ‚̧

Amen to staying flawless

if you want to be flawless , you have to know the proper steps of taking care of your skin… most especially the face….. taking multi-vitamins help us absorb nutrients from what we eat or even what we apply topically. even if you didn’t wear make-up or don’t at all, you still have to cleanse your face with a facial wash to remove oil, dirt and grime and other environmental pollutants. NEVER use soap as this strips off the skin’s natural moisture . wash off ¬†your cleansers with water but for dry skins, if you can, avoid water and wipe off instead. after cleaning face, apply a toner or an astringent. ¬†toners/ astringents helps remove any cleanser residue. it closes back pores which were opened during the cleansing process and prepares the skin for moisturizers . (apply toner on a cotton ball or pad and smooth all over face and neck . AVOID THE EYE AREA) .¬†make it a daily habit to use moisturizer even oily skin need to be moisturized¬† . NEVER mistake oiliness for moisture . as we age , our skin becomes drier so we need to replenish lost moisture daily. it is best to moisturize on a damp skin to lock in moisture. massage it into the face and neck until its fully absorbed ¬†to get all it’s skin care benefits (moisturizing is also a great way to prepare skin prior to make-up. ¬†Exfoliate face with facial scrub weekly to slough off accumulated dead skin that regular facial cleanser can’t remove. do not overdo it though, because it will only aggravate oil secretion and can lead to skin sensitivity.

(this is based on the books I read about skin care and make-up)

How well do you know your face?

Do you want to know what your skin type is? here is a very easy step. JUST OBSERVE..

after washing your face look at your skin at a mirror:

if you have normal skin. It wont look shiny half an hour after washing, even up until midday. your skin feels smooth and supple to the touch. your skin has no oily or tight reaction to cream cleansers or toners/ astringents but normal skin has a tendency to lean towards combination skin. when you have normal skin, your skin feels comfortable regardless of product applied.

Combination skin have good healthy skin but tend to have an oily T-zone and dryness in the cheek area. combination skin types have medium-sized pores on the T-zone and none on the cheek area, skin feels refreshed in the T-zone and stingy in the cheek area after using a toner/ astringent. Oils easily build up on the T-zone while cheek area feels rejuvenated when using a heavy cream. (did you know that; nearly 70-75% of people in the world have combination skin) 

people who have sensitive skin share the same symptoms of either oily , dry or combination skin but experience redness; itchiness and dry patches from using most types of skin care products. the skin is thin and prone to broken capillaries. even with very minimal product, skin is aggravated and shows allergic reactions with rashes and the like. the skin tends to flush or get red easily and prone to occasional break outs.

Oily skin (ME) ; face looks shiny half an hour after washing. skin is thick and prone to blackheads and white heads, it has enlarged pores and is prone to acne break out. skin feels heavy and oiliness is aggravated when using heavy creams but it feels refreshed and loses shine after using a toner/ astringent

if you have dry skin your face feels tight after washing . skin is flaky with the build-up of dead skin resulting to ashy or dull-looking skin. akin feels stinging after using a toner/ astringent.  dry skins have Minimal visible pores and is prone to fine lines and wrinkles. skin feels rejuvenated when using heavy creams.

NOW YOU KNOW! ūüôā

well, if you really do congrats to that ūüėõ

Organizing your Beauty tools

  1. Take time to find a large area where you can spread the materials that you are going to use. This isn’t a project to rush through.
  2. Take out all of your makeup and skin care products and go through them.
  3. Evaluate what you wear daily and what you don’t. Consider what you have time¬†¬†to apply and what is only used for special events
  4. Dispose of anything that is old, broken or causes irritation. If it’s old, you should get rid of it. Old makeup collects bacteria, separates and may flake off or not apply as well.
  5. Pack nail polish and remover in your daily kit if you do daily or frequent touch ups. Otherwise, put it in a nail kit and store elsewhere.
  6. Look at your make up application tools. Are they sufficient? Dirty? Floating around in the bottom of a drawer or bag? These become dirty and bacteria filled quickly. Toss out any used sponge applicators that came with the makeup and invest in good washable brusges. Dispose of any dirty foundation sponges and powder puffs. By using clean  brushes you can extend the life of your makeup by eliminating the amount of bacteria and oils you are introducing into it. Brush kits and brush bags are usually sold at mall makeup counters and makeup stores. The brush bags will keep your brushes organized, protect the brush ends from bending and keep your application tools clean.
  7. Clean application tools as needed. Clean eye liner by rubbing an alcohol soaked cotton ball over the pencil and sharpening the tip completely. Clean brushes in antibacterial soap and rinse until they are clean. If your brushes look tangled, deformed or if they are so full of makeup you don’t have to actually add make up each time, you need to dispose of those and start fresh.
  8. Examine your piles and try to gauge what size bag you will need. If you don’t have something big enough or with the necessary pockets you should start shopping. It’s always better to go with something slightly larger than something too small.
  9. Use the plastic storage with shelves under your sink or in the closet to store all but your daily makeup. Keep the daily kit easily accessible.
  10. Organize your makeup into the appropriately sized bags or kits.
  11. Store what you don’t use daily in its own bag or kit based on the categories above.
  12. Put your brushes in their own bag or kit to keep them clean and protected and put this in your daily bag or kit.
  13. Go shopping at a local drug, beauty supply, department or discount store and browse for makeup bags or kits. Make sure it can hold everything you plan on putting into it including your brush bag.
  14. Pat yourself on the back! Your makeup is organized and you should be on your way to a less stressful and efficient make up routine

Facts and Myths about Beauty Products


Myth:
 Cosmetics are not regulated.
Fact: Cosmetics are regulated, and their individual ingredients must be safe, and labeling must be truthful and not misleading. The FDA has legal authority over cosmetics similar to its authority over other FDA-regulated products, such as foods, nonprescription drugs and nonprescription medical devices. For instance, the FDA can take immediate action to stop the sale of any cosmetic product that does not meet its standards.

Myth: Cosmetics contain dangerous, toxic ingredients.
Fact:¬†FDA regulations require that all ingredients used in cosmetics be substantiated for safety. If this isn’t done, the product’s label must read: “WARNING: The safety of this product has not been determined.” In the U.S., cosmetic manufacturers are required by law to establish the safety of both finished products and their ingredients.

Myth: No independent body evaluates the safety of cosmetic ingredients.
Fact: The cosmetic industry supports an independent panel of world-class medical and scientific experts, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel (CIR). This scientific body examines all available data and assesses the safety of ingredients used in cosmetics. CIR publishes its findings in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Toxicology and has restricted or banned the use of hundreds of chemical ingredients owing to concerns over consumer safety.

Myth: Cosmetic and personal care products often contain substances known or suspected of causing cancer and reproductive toxicity.
Fact: No credible research has ever shown that any cosmetic or personal care products cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. Chemicals found to be human carcinogens are not used in cosmetics. In fact, very few reports of injury involving cosmetics have ever been reported.

Myth: Cosmetic companies can use any ingredient they want in their products.
Fact: By law, every cosmetic on the shelf must be safe. In the U.S., cosmetics are regulated under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, which is enforced by the FDA. The FDA has the legal authority to regulate the safety of cosmetic products; however, it has comparatively little need to use its authority, because cosmetics are composed of safe ingredients and because, when necessary, the cosmetics industry has acted voluntarily to withdraw ingredients that have been scientifically shown to have the potential for adverse effects.

Myth: Skin-care products are all hype; soap and water works just as well.
Fact: The science behind skin-care products has grown in leaps and bounds over the past 20 years. Today, there is good scientific evidence behind the use of such ingredients as antioxidant vitamins, green tea polyphenols, retinoids, alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids, and essential oils in skin-care products to minimize wrinkles, fade dark spots, and strengthen collagen.

23 Trivias on make-up

Here are 23 make-up trivias I’ve read on the Internet O_~
  1. Lipstick doesn’t just look good! There’s a connection between wearing lipstick and a reduced incidence of malignant lesions on the lip. Turns out lipstick can work as an effective sunscreen.
  2. The average woman in the West uses 4 to 9 lbs. of lipstick in her lifetime.
  3. Lipstick is also one of the mostly commonly shoplifted items.
  4. By 1908, it was okay for women to apply lipstick at the table during lunch at a restaurant. It was not okay to apply lipstick at dinner
  5. in some cultures, women have used arsenic, lead, mercury and even leeches to give themselves the pale appearance deemed beautiful in the old days.
  6. In 1914, T.M. Williams formulates the 1st mascara after seeing his sister apply petroleum jelly in her lashes. He founded his company to manufacture the product and named it after his sister Maybel, which we now know as Maybelline.
  7. During World War II, cosmetics were restricted from manufacturing because Petroleum and Alcohol (two principal ingredients found in makeup) were needed for war supplies.
  8. In 1600, They used sweat from behind the ears to soothe chapped lips.
  9. When a woman has perfectly shaped brows, she can look put together even without a drop of makeup. This is why brow-shaping should be the one weekly beauty regimen you should never skip. Get more eyebrow makeup tips.
  10. Blending is key¬†The richest colors should stay closest to the lashline, fading as it reaches your eye’s crease, according to Barneys New York makeup artist Carlos Geraci in the April 2006 ‘O’ magazine.
  11. Pick colors that flatter your eyes & skin color Blue shadows make blue eyes pop, while lilac & purples are gorgeous on brown eyes & black-skinned & olive-skinned women. If you have pink skin (as opposed to a yellow base), avoid pinky-purples.
  12. Use 2 shadows, a light & a dark¬†Pick a soft color for the entire eye area up to the browbone & then use the darker color only up to your eye’s crease.
  13. Keep the rest of your makeup light¬†Nude lips with gloss suits these strong eyes perfectly. Avoid colors on lips, they’ll not only compete with your strong eyes, but the colors could clash.
  14. According to the Ladies Home Journal March, 2006, issue, makeup companies have come up with a new way to compress more pigment than ever into their eye shadows. Now you can pick a shade that looks the same on your eyelids as it does through the plastic cover on the container. In the past, shadows went on lighter or in some cases, muddier. Not anymore. Now you can buy without fear of hating the color.
  15. A trick makeup artists use to make lashes pop is apply one coat of lengthening mascara, followed by one coat of thickening mascara. Remove excess product with a clean spoolie wand
  16. Basic mascara rules are simple: Black works for everyone but can be harsh on light-skinned blondes. Blondes should opt for brown/black by day and reserve black for night. Burgundy or plum colors make blue eyes pop, as do blue mascaras. Purple mascara looks great on brown eyes.
  17. if you want to make eyes appear wider, apply mascara to the bottom lashes but make sure you give lashes a light touch. Not great at getting those bottom lashes? Try putting a tissue under them before application.
  18. Primers coat lashes and separate them before you apply mascara. Makeup artists swear by mascara primer.
  19. Thou Shalt Not Pump Wand In & Out of  Tube This only introduces air into the tube, which will cause your mascara to dry out sooner than it should.
  20. A top makeup artist once gave his secret to his steady hand: he always bends his wand at a right angle.
  21. Make sure to blend your blush into your foundation well or it will tend to look unnatural and add the appearance of 5 years to your looks.
  22. Prepare your skin with a light SPF moisturizer before applying concealer for a smoother application.
  23. Lining your lips is important for creating plump, noticeable lips.

My Kabuki Look

I’m just really a newbie for make-up. I don’t even have an official training. I just watch and copy or improvise . so here is my kabuki make-up that I tried on my face.. I couldn’t find my pictures with my friends wearing the same make-up but I’ll try my best to look for it again. I made this look for our theatrical dance in school (our ¬†course is mass communication major in performing arts). this is my trial and error shot for kabuki make-up. I tried my best to imitate the japanese kabuki. ¬†please comment. I need to know what I have to improve on or what the strong points of this looks are ūüôā thanks! ūüôā

your skin types and how to care for your skin

 

 

there are 5 basic skin types:

  • Normal
  • Dry
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Sensitive

How will you know what your skin type is?

here is one way:

  1. wash your face with your regular face wash and pat dry.
  2. wait for 30 minutes to allow your skin to show signs of what type it is.
  3. To determine results easily, get a sheet of oil absorbing film and examine your face:

if your face is oily film easily sticks to the skin, other than the T-zone like your forehead, Nose and Chin and becomes transparent due to the oil. if you have dry skin oil film doesnt stick on the skin anywhere in the face . for Combination skin , the oil film sticks on the T-zone but doesnt on the cheek area. and… Sensitive can be either oily, dry or combination skin except that it can be easily Irritated.that’s what makes it different from the rest.¬†

you can care for your skin through:

  1. supplements
  2. cleanser
  3. moisturizer
  4. Toner

For  Normal  Skin:

Ph balancing Facial cleanser , regular moisturizer and balancing toner.

For Oily Skin:

Gel-based cleanser to unclog pores and remove excess oil or sebum. Water based moisturizer to lock in moisture that dont  clog pores. toners should be alcohol based.

For Dry skin:

Cream cleanser or non-soap cleanser. Choose creams rather than lotions or regular moisturizers. Creams contain more natural oils that help fight dryness . use alcohol-free toner . alcohol based products can further dry your skin. 

For Sensitive  Skin:

still use the ones according to your skin type but always choose hypoallergenic products. Mild hypoallergenic cleansers to avoid stinging allergic reactions and/or redness. always choose hypoallergenic products. choose moisturizers free of parabens, synthetic ingredients and fragrance. commercial toners can be too harsh for you but you can use mild toners like witch hazel instead.

University Belt : the world I Spend Most of my Mornings and Afternoons

Here’s the world I Spend Most of my Mornings and Afternoons :

(YUP, IT’S AN ADVENTURE)

I hope you enjoy and not get bored with the videos.. LOL

It’s really a smart thing to be very careful of your belongings since snatchers sees great crowds a great opportunity to grab stuff from you. like bags, jewelry and gadgets etc.

oh, and … ¬†students near the Malacanang Palace area (Mendiola) are very used to see and experience rallies. In a month, it seems like it happens twice, thrice up until ten times . there’s nothing really special about it. It gets so draggy semester by semester. rallies are so shallow nowadays. it doesn’t seem like rallyists are fighting for something, they just keep on complaining about …. almost, everything. I don’t even bother to know why anymore.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART  !!!! ;D

busy roads are very usual in U-belt ūüėÄ it adds up to the fun (if you’re not a cranky person ;D )

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_Belt)

IT’S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES RIGHT?! believe me, it is. It may be a little Disorderly but still, I love it .

our professor required us to make a reaction Paper about What we watched about the University Belt where our school is. the documentary’s name is University Belt By I-witness the reporter was Jay Taruc.It’s in Tagalog though. It raised a lot of foreseen and rising problems within the University Belt’s area. It’s called the University-Belt because almost all the universities in Manila are within the area. near recto they sell ¬†fake documents of … YOU NAME IT.

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/01/17/world/asia/philippines-recto/index.html

from Diplomas, school receipts, transcripts etc. it will take me forever to type the various kinds of fake documents they make. I don’t even know if they ever got raided. You can’t really blame them (the tinderas of fake documents) for choosing this kind of business. It’s not an easy life to be living in the Philippines. not everyone has the means to study in a good school without sacrificing something. like, putting their life at stake by selling fake documents just so they would have the means to pay the electric bills and water… and the most important part; having the means to go to school and pay tuition fees some vendors don’t even have electricity (they only have light during the day) and water inside their homes (unless they go out of their way to buy outside. and that’s for drinking and bathing). you can’t blame them because it sells. and they are sold to irresponsible pretentious people. so if there is someone to blame, blame the buyers. blame the true fakers. I hate people who buy fake receipts to kick back money from their parents. It’s just the same as stealing. from your own parents who works really hard to put you in a nice University for your own future. and what’s next? faking your diploma? isnt that a form of cheating? “eh kasi,tinatamad ako mag aral” (“but I feel lazy to study”). what if parents tell their children “I don’t want to work because I feel lazy” who’s gonna support them then? and if they say they can, are they sure or until when? and yet Teenagers and some young adults who don’t have work want to move out because they want to be independent. how can they be independent if they lack the means? there’s always a perfect timing for everything. Life is more fun if we realize what our responsibilities are in life and if we know what our limitations are. Live life to the fullest. just enjoy it responsibly. we are the conscience of ourselves. we are the best judge of ourselves. we are the best guardians of ourselves. who knows yourself better but you and God right? if we are on the right track, if we really know what’s right from wrong then it wouldn’t be much of a problem if we fall short or commit mistakes in life. because, we know how to fix it. we know how to feel better and be better. (well, at least that’s my opinion about it.) ¬†another problem that was raised was the “bugaw” or prostitution.

I can’t say I can’t blame the prostitutes for selling their own flesh but I think I understand some. by “some” I meant the less fortunate who just want to have “the good life”. they think it would save them from poverty. It may. actually, in some cases it does. but I hardly know about prostitutes who find true real men who would love and accept them and at the same time, save them from poverty. I feel for the women prostitutes. they’re women like me, like us (female). In general, we have the same feelings at times we get gullible. we can be very fragile or vulnerable. I feel for them because they get taken for granted everyday. even with their consent. well, if compared to students who fake their documents and don’t go to school with students who result to prostitution because without it, they can’t afford to study … I would rather choose to be with student prostitutes who take their studies seriously. at least they want to have a better life. at least they strive hard to make their dreams come true. so to the people who call them bitches. most of them don’t deserve to be called as such. one reason is that they are humans too who have feelings of their own despite their own faults and flaws. Bitch is a harsh word, don’t you think? we all commit mistakes…

john 8: 4-11

4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

john 8: 4-11

Right? ūüôā everyone has their own dirty little secret. it may not even be , just one. ¬†that’s why we should be our own judge and not anyone’s. because we are just mere man too. ¬† It’s hard not to but let’s try our best not to. you wouldn’t like it if it happened to you, don’t you think? ¬†it would really be nice if we just try to understand one another.

but besides the negativity, this just proves that Filipinos are a very resourceful people (we use our brains to survive ^_~)
