In My Dream

*A Pabebe Ode*

I wake up every morning feeling so blue
and I just can’t help but cry in my room
cause every time I open my eyes I know
that dreams won’t come true

I sip my cofee with you in mind
would this day be just like the usual times
kept on thinking how to be closer to you
until the day dies

It’s a cycle, an ever ending routine
Can’t you be lover, can’t you be my king?

In my dream we are in a magic land
you and me, together, holding hands
When the sun falls asleep you’re still in my side
stroking my head; singing a lullabye

In my dream you like me more than I do
Your feeling’s wider than the sky so blue
As the ocean’s bed cannot be reached
same in reality, I cry in grief

I don’t want to wake up
Can you not make the night stop?

In the day you are as cold as ice
but you have this charisma that I can’t deny
and wherever you go my eyes follow you
automatically, uncontrollably

Even if I know you won’t return
these feelings that I’ve been wanting to burn
I’m happy just to see you smile
making my day last for a while

I’ll just meet you later,
I’ll see you later in my dreams.


How I Got My Teeth Whiter In Just A Week

A week after… and I can wear rouge now!

Note: This is a legit review

My Story:

It was only until I reached college that I became conscious of my oral hygiene. In fact, when I was a girl, I could care less about having to brush my teeth. I even remember hiding from my mom whenever she calls me to brush my teeth. It is like I’m having Odontarrupophobia.

I didn’t took good care of my teeth before that is why I always get cavities and have two of my permanent teeth extracted. As I got older, my teeth became yellowish… and apart.

Not so captivating smile

I found it hideous. Moreover, I extremely regretted my irresponsible attitude towards brushing. It was only until I became a young adult that I realized the things that my mom said.

When I had my first job, and had an income of my own, I immediately spent it to the dentist. I get braces which will adjust my teeth for a year and, probably, a few months. But then, a killer smile won’t be deadly if my teeth is stained, so I tried everything in my desperation.

I tried almost all of those commercialized whitening toothpastes that you see on television–one of them that says you can get white teeth instantly, which is utter bollocks. I even went to try those messy natural remedies–banana skin, lemon, baking soda (my nightmare), and others.

I stopped in a while because it was a waste of time and money. If you’re asking why I just didn’t had my dentist fix my problem, well, I’m telling you, it cost a fortune.

Nu Skin AP24 Whitening Toothpaste:

Well, I’m telling you right now. If you are not really that obstinate to have a pearl white teeth, then just go and skim this blog article. But if you are just like me, then be my guest and keep reading.

I was a tea fan, I am still, but ever since I used Nu Skin Ap24, I have to discipline myself and refrain myself from eating food that badly stains the teeth. Of course, even if we say that the AP24 is effective, you won’t be a satisfied customer if you’re being adamant and perverse. Moreover, you will just waste your money. So help yourself and do the basics.


All of the reviews I watched are positive, though they have mentioned some downsides, but overall, they convinced me that it will be worth my penny. One review that really made me say that this product is the one is this demo.

I was horrified by this review because several fishes died, but it proves that AP24 is non-toxic.

The above snippet of the video was very convincing that it led me to the Nu Skin AP24 page. As you can see, the fish inside the glass, with Nu Skin toothpaste, is still alive even after the video ended (the other one is in a clean water). It only proves that the AP24 is non-toxic to people and to animals.

I even learned that dentists from other countries uses this toothpaste to their clients. This just proves more that Nu Skin AP24 is credible enough to be your new whitening toothpaste.

Furthermore, the Philippines Food and Drug Administration even recognize this product.


I am using the product for almost two weeks now and I am very satisfied with the outcome. As you will see from my after photos below, the product is effective and hiyang to me.

Although it is not really that pearl white right now, I still have to continuously use the product to see it for myself. In my routine of brushing at least 3 times a day, and not smoking and drinking coffee (tea for once a week only), my teeth will probably get to my expected shade.

Message me to know more on how to get this product!

Try AP24 now and I swear you won’t regret it! Say goodbye to that yellow teeth!

PS: I strongly recommend this product to heavy smokers and coffee/tea drinkers.

I Got A Korean Feast For A Reasonable Price!

Yes, that is right.

We all know that Korean restaurants are expensive in the Philippines. One dish will cost you at around 300-450 pesos. A single serve of ramyeon, for instance, is already worth Php 300-350. A class-A beef, on the other hand, will empty your wallets without even noticing it.

If you want to enjoy a good Korean meal, I recommend not to go solo, but to dine with your family or friends. In other words, the more company you got, the cheaper the food will be.

How it all happened?

It all happened happened last Feb 24, Thursday. I was invited by my work colleagues, Ms. Chol and Ms. Jessica, to have our lunch at a Korean restaurant. When I asked Ms. Chol how much the usual price of the food there, she told me that I can order a meal for Php 350. EXPENSIVE! I can have three (3) C1 +  one (1) Jolly Spaghetti at Jollibee for that amount of money. I became reluctant because: (1) it’s expensive for just a meal, (2) I’m saving money, (3) I didn’t bring extra. So, I told my workmate that I’ll pass this time.

Later that noon, I saw them prepping up to go and have their lunch-out. They insist me to go again even though I already convinced myself not to. Ms. Chol, my sunbae, jokingly told me to just eat the side dishes if I don’t feel like buying.

I feel ashamed regretting their invitation after they invited me again, and I also realized that it has been a while since I ate something Korean, so I’ve decided to give myself a treat. I’ve also been eating greens for consecutive days already, so I justified to myself that I need a little flavor on my plate.

Da rae jung Korean Restaurant

Since I work near HK Sun Plaza, where there are several Korean Restaurants, taking a trip was not that time consuming.

At first, I thought that there won’t be much people since Seaside is not that populated, or so I thought. When we went to Da rae jung Korean Restaurant, we had to wait for 5 mins because the resto was fully booked. The place was filled of Koreans! Little did I know that that the aforementioned resto is very popular. To Koreans. In the Philippines. I think?

Here’s the actual photo of the restaurant when it was still packed:

While I was looking at their menu, I literally held my wallet tightly, but then the food looked great so I’m forgave myself for giving up to temptation.

You can learn more about Da rae jung and its menu here.

Aesthetic wise, their interior is spacious and neat. Although its not really outstanding, the restaurant looks presentable. They even have this space where you can dine while sitting on the platform. Furthermore, they have private rooms.

The two doors there are the restaurant’s private rooms.

My other colleague, Alex, and I decided to order two (2) dishes and divide the expenses. In that way, we won’t have to worry about what we want to eat. We can try different dishes since each is already good for 2.

We agreed to have Beef Belly Barbecue (Samgyeopsal-gui) and Korean Glass Noodle Stir Fry (Jjapchae). Each costs Php 350 and Php 400, respectively. I paid half of the total which is Php 375. Our group expense, however, was like below Php 2,000 which is reasonable for six people. I even got a take-out!

These dishes are great!

With us six, just imagine how are table looked!

Got spoiled with so many food!

Dining with a group of people can be really strategic. Each can order a different dish and share it with others. In that way, you will be able to taste the restaurant’s menu. No one will have to spend a penny more just to have another order, unless that person intends to do so.

We were also given two bowl of Steamed Egg from the house as an apology after they forgot to give Jackie’s order when she came the last time. Although Jackie’s fine with it, they still gave her forgotten order aside from the Steamed Egg.

My new favorite! 5 stars!

Here’s what our feast looked like:

Side dishes are unlimited! Everything is worth your penny!

The waiter also cut the pork meat in front of us. Unfortunately, there’s no available grill for our order, so we were not the one who cooked our Samgyeopsal-gui.

On the other hand, I saw my oppa on an unexpected place.

I also tried to consume one whole leaf of Samgyeopsal-gui.

Although I spent my money on food again, like nothing ever changed, I have no regrets because the food was heavenly. The staff are also approachable and kind.

I will definitely comeback here again with family or friends next time!

Don’t ever trust Google translate.

Halaman, or Plant in English, is a living organism typically growing in a permanent site, absorbing water and inorganic substances through its roots, and synthesizing nutrients in its leaves by photosynthesis using the green pigment chlorophyll…okay, stop. In order words, they’re asexual living organisms.

We used the word Halaman to analogize the state of being of someone who doesn’t have any sexual feelings or desires to the opposite sex. Being asexual is also, somewhat, relates to being a celibate–a person who abstains from marriage and sexual relations.  However, celibacy is already far from being a halaman. Probably, the nearest word to describe this is Alexythimia.

Alexythimia derives from Greek, which literally means, having no words for emotions. According to Psychiatrictimes.comalexithymia implies a glitch in the process that permits the expression of feelings in words that capture the body’s involvement in these feelings. Though this is a very specific term for emotionally detached people… ooppss… did I just say “emotionally detached?” Yes, that is right. Halaman people are emotionally detached people.

You mad at me for beating around the bush? Well, I just want to let you know the clinical term for this. Peace!

So to those people who doesn’t really give a piece of sh*t about St. Valentine’s Day or others call it, Self Awareness Day or Independence Day, I made some compilation of quotes, tweets, and memes for you.

1) This time when you starred at a Jollibee commercial

“I never felt like a superstar before!”

2) When you’re just really dead on the inside


3) Or maybe your zodiac sign is really Aquarius?

Happy graduation my halaman friend!

4) When you’re not a bitter gourd this Valentines

Best halaman friend award goes to…

5) When you’re doubting yourself, you know what to do


6) When your friend is annoying you with food


7) Hail to the Halaman Anthem!


Even though you’re a halaman, don’t worry. There’s still someone out there who loves you (even though you won’t ever love them back, perhaps?).

Happy Halaman Day!

Bye College! Hello Adult Life!


Hi! This is the author speaking (or writing). Well, enough with the corny introduction, I’m here to show you what I did on the day of my college commencement exercise.

Since my graduation is early in the morning, 8:00 AM to be exact, I did my own make-up and styling. It’s a good thing that I already went to wax and thread out those unwanted hair, so I’ll be lookin’ fresh on my graduation day (yow!).

Add that Snapchat filter for a PAK! GANERN! effects

My grandma came for my graduation, so I’m really happy and excited!! (Doki doki suru!!)

I spy… Euei!

These past 3 years has been one hella ride. College taught me and showed me a lot of things. Who would’ve thought that a half-hearted, unconfident, self-doubting Faye would turn out to be a strong, versatile, and mature Euei? I never did. I just believed in myself that whatever trial I may encounter, I can surpass it.

Now, that I finally put the tassel on my left, I am ready to fully pursue my dreams. I just need to plow out some weeds I guess?

Adult life… bring it on!

To all students who are doubting right now like I did before, if everybody’s telling you that you can’t do it, sino ba sila? sila ba ikaw? NO. You know your capacities and capabilities. Why not try first before giving up? I promise you won’t regret it.

That’s all. Au revoir!


Mata ne!
