Meliora Eligo. I Seek the Better Things.

Everyday, I take the bus to reach my workplace. Usually, I wake up at 5:15 in the morning (because I take long in fixing myself and dressing up, haha) and leave early since my work starts at 8 am. There are two local buses that I can ride:

1. I won’t name this company (clue: their buses are green. LOL). As much as possible, I don’t want to ride any of their buses because I had a bad experience with their rude ticket inspector. I have nothing against this company (I still ride their buses as a last resort, hahaha). But this ticket inspector should learn some manners and proper etiquette or else the company with the green buses will lose more passengers.

2. I won’t name this company to be fair (clue: their buses are yellow. LOL). I like their buses way more than the other’s because they have better amenities (and ticket inspectors). Their buses have free wifi (not that I avail of this), a CCTV security camera, colder air conditioning system, cleaner and newer seats, and… an interesting exclusive TV channel.

This certain channel airs different documentaries, news channels, lifestyle shows and video blogs. And a certain video blogger caught my attention. Ahihi. :3

One of the things I would like to do someday is to travel. Since I just graduated and started working recently, I still have a lot of saving to do. In the meantime, I can only buy books about different cultures and watch travel shows. Going back to my story, one of the vloggers (video bloggers) in the bus channel shares his adventures in the countries he has visited. Besides the fact that I enjoy seeing his travels, I particularly like him because he’s cute funny. :)

And so, activating my fangirl mode, I messaged him in Facebook to tell him that I appreciate him sharing his travel stories. He was nice enough to reply to me. But I was really surprised when he shared my message in his personal page. Oh em, I’m so shy… Haha. >.<


Guess who the “viewer in Manila” is. Hahaha. :)))

Actually, my original message did not include the last sentence in his quote. But to be fair, I do love him his travel videos, so it’s okay. Ahihi.


We do look good together, right? Right? Kidding. :p Hi Cody! You’re welcome to stay at our ancestral house when you visit the Philippines again. Hihi. :)

What is the best thing to do when an old friend returns to my life?

Question: It has been 7 years since we last had any communication with each other and now he’s back. What is the best thing to do when an old friend returns to my life?

Option A. Talk to him.

He must have his own reasons for getting in touch after all these years. Maybe he wants to talk and to catch up. Maybe he just wants to say hello. The romantic feelings have disappeared long ago, but I honestly miss him. There’s no harm in talking with him again. After all, he used to be my best friend. 

Option B. Ignore him.

Oh. So now he’s trying to get in touch. After 7 years of trying to contact him, sending birthday messages that were ignored. It can also be really tiring to make an effort to reach out to someone who apparently doesn’t want to do anything with me. Let’s see how he feels when I give him a dose of his own medicine. Hmph.

Option C. Nothing.

There’s no use crossing a bridge that was burned - not my choice, but his.

Option D. Ask help from friends.

Oh em. I don’t know what to do. Huhuhu. Help? Please?
