Everyone welcome to my fairy tale world!
I am no daughter of great actresses but I am proud to say that my greatest inspiration is my mom. I grew up to be what I am now, happy, contented, fulfilled and inspired.
And this is where my heritage and blogging life begins….
I’ve been a lover of Cebu with its wonderful beaches and great buildings and vast city lights. For me I have never found any place that will match my love and dedication for Cebu. On the eve of July 08, 2009 I cried at the airport, afraid and sad, it was my first time to be away from my family. Two years ago I decided to start my first independent venture in Thailand. I was confident that I will be able to learn so many things, through out my 23 years of existence I was so dependent to my parents, family and to King. I always rely on them and make many excuses so as I can get out with my personal woes and problems. But on the eve of July 09, 2009 as I stepped into the glimmering lights of Bangkok’s airport, it was midnight and my contact was out of reached. I was starting to worry but I braved the streets of Bangkok and tried to reach my destination, thank God I got a gentleman driver and took me to a hotel near the Institute.
After two years I have discovered so many things, I have learned how to budget my own money, do the laundries, cook for myself, clean my entire pad and learned to be strong despite the sadness on missing those special days like your birthday, Christmas, Valentines and New Years Eve. It was the hardest part of my life, I had sleepless nights while burning myself with loneliness. I have never realized how much my life in Cebu was so different in Bangkok. But now, as things are starting to come into place, I have so many things to thank God for.
The making of this blog started when I bid farewell to my friends and now it has continue to grow despite everything I’ve been through. I believe that my love for Cebu will never change but I’ve grown to be an independent and mature person in Bangkok.
Sweet memories of Cebu will forever be instilled in my heart, but I was gifted with a lot of realization that became one of my life’s precious lessons. I became who I am today, that is why I cannot choose one but two of my favorite places that marked my joyful youth and humble beginnings. Let us keep it this way, I left my heart in CEBU but I found my smile again in BANGKOK. Sugbuanon ko, gihigugma teka Bangkok. (I am from CEBU, I love Bangkok).
