In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life:
it goes on.

Happy Easter Sunday! :)
As part of the Holy Week, we had our Visita Iglesia but this time, instead of having just the family, we prayed the Way of the Cross with Tita Volet & Tito Willie San Diego and the Arais Family. :D
In the morning, we attended Hannah's burial and then later in the afternoon, we had our Visita Iglesia. I’ve been doing that with my family for four years now and it really feels good to serve our Lord even in just a simple way.
We just had 6 churches this year. Usually, we really complete the 14 churches for the 14 stations. However, we started late in the afternoon this time ‘cause as I’ve said, we attended Hannah’s burial in the morning and it was too hot to push through after lunch.
For the first five churches, we had two stations for each, but for the sixth one, we had the last four ‘cause we were already running out of time.
After our Way of The Cross, we had our dinner at Hap Chan. Milk tea, baby! :D
The next day, Good Friday, we went to QC for [insert long story here:]]]]. At around 3PM, we went to Tita Volet's house to eat merienda, went home for awhile, and then got back to Tita Volet's place again for dinner. Other family friends (BCBP) were also there. :)
For Black Saturday, we went to Tita Evelyn's house at Rosario, Cavite and had our dinner at their place.
And since today’s Easter Sunday, we attended the mass this morning. After the mass, we went to SM Bacoor and shopped for stuff. Asdfghjkl.
For one whole week, we were actually out of our house. LOL. :))
And fudge, two nights to go and it’s back to reality again. :| Kdots.
Happy Easter, everyone! GOD BLESS. :D
First Day of Summer
As expected, we didn’t discuss anything. LOL. :)) We just exchanged stories with our professors, Sir Dong (prof in FNM52, was also our professor for MAS last semester) and Ma’m Mayel (prof in ITE54). Stupid me, BTW. I forgot my pencil case so I had to buy a ballpen from Adams (a grocery, computer shop and school supplies store near PLM —- HAHAHA:))).
During our lunch break, we ate at McDo-SM Manila and while we were on our way back to PLM, I saw Jus Rex, a high school batchmate who I hadn’t seen since graduation. Funny ‘cause just last Friday, Jan Adams and I were just talking about him and wondering how he had been. :D
Later, we’re going to attend to Hannah's wake again. Our whole family had been there since the first day of the wake. It's really just hard to see how the Anceno family struggles now ‘cause of Hannah's death. :(
Holy week~ So yeah, I’ll be back to school next Tuesday. Thank GOD for the one week vacation. (:
Sleep in peace, Hannah.
May it really was her time. The accident happened when nobody was around to save her, considering that before the incident happened, those who could’ve possibly saved her either had left the place or weren’t looking.
Yesterday, at around past 12 midnight, Mom woke me up and told me the bad news. Hannah's gone. :(
What makes it really sad is that I was there but I wasn’t able to do anything. :| Yun yung point na sina Tita Awrin, all day andun sila malapit sa adult pool, pero nung nalingat sila saglit, saka siguro tumalon dun si Hannah (based sa kwento ng kapatid niyang si Andrew na bata pa lang din at wala pang kamuwang-muwang). Na ako, niyaya ko sina Colleen at Karen na umahon para makipaglaro ng basketball kina Stephen, Renz at Xavier sa may basketball court ng venue. Na lumipat ng pwesto si Mommy. Na yung ibang mga bata, paahon na o kaya may ibang ginagawa. Na yung mga matatanda, hindi nagswimming nung umaga at nasa banyo na para mag-shower kasi magsswimming na sana sila nung nangyari yun. Na lahat, nalingat dun sa place na yun, wala sa may adult pool kung kelan sya tumalon. :|
And then may nakakita na lang sa kanyang lumulutang na. :| Lumaban sya, na-revive yung heartbeat nung sinugod sya sa hospital eh. Kaso, di na talaga kinaya. May hika pa man din si Hannah. Sobrang stuggle ang survival.
Ang sakit, kasi andun ako. Shocking and nakaka-guilty, kahit pa alam kong wala naman talagang dapat sisihin. I was there eh. I could’ve done something but I wasn’t able to.
We were there para magsaya, mag-enjoy, magpasalamat, mag-bonding at mag-worship through tightening the families’ bonds. Unfortunately, the accident happened.
And now, Hannah's gone. Yesterday, when I saw her at the morgue after nyang maayusan, mukha lang siyang tulog. She looked so pretty and alive. Para lang syang ga-graduate. Para syang anghel.
Sayang kasi sa Wednesday sana, graduation nya. Number one sya sa klase eh. Outstanding student. Marami dapat syang makukuhang awards. Ilang beses dapat syang mare-recognize sa stage. Tutula pa dapat sya at ipapakita nya yun sa Papa nya. At next year, scholar pa dapat sya.
Sobrang sayang, 5 years lang yung tinagal nya sa mundo. Pero siguro nga, hanggang dun na lang talaga sya. GOD has plans naman eh. Maybe He has prepared something really better para sa mga naiwan ni Hannah. Hindi naman nya kukunin si Hannah ng walang reason eh.
Pero sobra lang talaga akong naawa sa family. Mga kapatid nya kahapon, iyak ng iyak. Graduation din sana ng panganay nilang si Irell sa Wedneday eh. Imbes na excited sana sya, ang lungkot lungkot nya ngayon. Si Tito Neil, sobrang weak tignan though he’s really trying to be strong. Si Tita Grace, sobrang nasasaktan ako para sa kanya. Naghi-hysterical sya. Sinong nanay nga naman ba ang hindi masasaktan ng ganun? :(
LORD, please save Hannah.
It was BCBP's Family Sportsfest, bonding time with other BCBP families. Ang saya nung una eh… Kantahan, sayawan, mga wacky games, volleyball, basketball, amazing race, kainan, kwentuhan at syempre, swimming. We were forming bonds with those people na pumunta. Everyone was wearing their smiles. Tawa dito, tawa doon. Kwento dito, kwento doon. Basta masaya.
Nung mga bandang after lunch tapos nagsawa na kaming magswimming nina Karen at Colleen, pumunta kami sa may basketball court nung venue tapos nakipaglaro kina Renz, Xavier at Stephen. Kaso nung medyo napagod na rin, umupo na kami ni Karen sa may gilid ng court habang si Colleen, may sariling mundo. Asdfghjklol. :D
While on the verge of exchanging stories, and well, asaran na rin kasi ang di maka-shoot sa mga lalake eh bading-kuno, biglang pumunta si Mico sa court tapos sabi niya, “May nalunod na bata dun!”
Dali-dali naman kaming tumabkbo sa may pool area and there we saw people surrounding a little girl, si Hannah yun. Mga 4 or 5 years old siguro siya. They were trying to revive her kaya lang, sobrang putla na niya.
Nung di pa rin siya nagre-respond, they brought her to the nearest hospital. Kaming mga naiwan, we offered our prayers.
Sabi ni Daddy, since sumama siya sa paghatid sa hospital, na-revive na raw yung heartbeat. Kaso yung brain, hindi pa rin nagre-respond.
And as of tonight, gosh, bumababa raw yung chance na maka-recover pa talaga siya kasi naubusan yata talaga ng oxygen. Gosh. :(
Yung feeling na, andun ka eh, pero wala kang magawa. Na siguro, you could’ve done something, pero wala. Na ngayon, all you can do is pray.
Yes, all I can do is pray.
Once upon a time (03.30.2012)
There lived a girl and a boy. They separated ways and met again, and then there were so much to tell.
Wait, wala naman akong balak mag-story telling. Pero I really have something to tell. :))
I have mentioned the re-connection in a previous post. And kanina lang, nagkita kami. Umaga kami nagkita kasi may meeting ang JPIA EOs ng after lunch eh.
Nauna akong nakarating ng SM Manila. As usual, sa National Bookstore ako tumambay. After some time of reading synopses of novels and getting disappointed kasi wala naman akong dalang pambili, I went out of NBS and decided to stroll around SM Department Store to window-shop for bags. Isa pa, nung nasa NBS ako, nagtext siya na nasa Coastal Mall pa lang daw siya. I was like, medyo may katagalan pa so magi-ikot na lang muna ako. Kaso pagkalabas ko ng NBS, bigla rin siyang nagtext na bakit raw ako lumabas. Yay, joke niya lang pala na nasa Coastal Mall pa lang siya. Eh nasa Dept. Store na ako nung naka-reply ako.
So pinuntahan niya ako sa Dept. Store and yeah, that was it. We just had lunch together at McDo-3rd floor at dun na kami nagkwentuhan. Endless stories. There were times na bigla na lang kaming matatahimik, magkakatinginan, iiwas ng tingin, and fudge, it felt like years pag mag-iisip ng panibagong topic na pwedeng pag-uusapan. To end those quite awkward moments, pati current events dinamay ko na! LOL. Tapos may mga BSA freshmen and sophomores pang dumating, eh marami sa kanila kakilala ko. Goodbye, privacy. Hello, whatever! Asdfghjkl. :)) Kdots.
1:30PM kasi yung schedule ng EOs meeting, pero 1:30 na ako umalis sa SM. Haha. :D Siyempre, three years kaya kaming di nagkita! Malamang kulang yung oras to somehow make up through stories, right?
A lot of things had already changed. Some for the better, others, no comment na lang. (: Pareho na kaming somehow engaged into musical instruments ngayon. Advantage lang talaga ng malaki niyang kamay na kaya niyang matugtog lahat ng chords ng gitara. Unlike me, na sa pang-grade 3 ko yatang kamay eh yung magkakalapit na chords lang talaga ang kaya kong tugtugin. Kaya naman yung mga malalayo pero may katagalan sa paglilipat pag tumutugtog na. At dahil dala niya ang gitara niya kanina, nag-jamming kami. Oh yeah, sa McDo mismo. So what kung maraming tao? Haha. :D
Dahil pareho kaming fan ng Eraserheads, and as far as I remember eh pareho naming all-time favorite sa mga kanta nila ang Ang Huling El Bimbo, yun yung una naming kinanta. Then Passenger Seat by Stephen Speaksna favorite kong tugtugin sa gitara kasi madali lang siya (LOL:))), and last ('cause I really had to go kasi malaki na yung babayaran kong rates for being late) yung Magasin, by Eraserheads ulit. (:
And naibalik na rin sa akin si Meow na almost three years ng nasa custody niya. :)) Na-miss ko ‘to! :”>
Er, stupid deed. Meow was his Christmas present to me back when we were in third year high school. Tapos nung nagkalabuan na, binalik ko yan sa kanya. How bitter and childish ‘no? Tapos ngayon nasa akin ulit? Haha! Yeah, I know. Ang joke time lang. Fine. Pero I really thought na nung binalik ko yan sa kanya eh nilibing na niya. I thought he disposed everything about us. But I was wrong. Kasi ultimo dots ng texts ko nung high school naalala niya pa, eh ako nga nalimutan ko na. And we still both remember the symbol na pag nagtext kami at may symbol na ganun, kahit walang pangalan, alam naming kami yun. Eto oh: ¤Ü :)
Tapos yung notebook namin na blue, na parang diary na exchange of messages namin nung second year, nasa kanya pa rin. He asked me kung kukunin ko pa, but I told him to simply just keep it. Nasa kanya na eh. Isa pa, hindi lang akin yun, amin yun. Unlike Meow, akin kasi siya. Hahaha. :D Sounds childish talaga. :)))) Pati ako natatawa na sa mga pinagsasabi ko. PARA AKONG BUMALIK SA HAYSKUL! :)))))
Nung bago kami umalis ng SM, nag-picture muna kami. :”> Rememberance lang! :)
Tumanda talaga itsura niya. Honestly. :| Pero he’s the same guy na may sense kausap, na malalim kausap. Same voice, by the way. Hahaha. Boses Spongebob pa rin LOL. :)))))
Pagdating ko sa PLM para sa meeting, gusto kong batukan si Mikee. Sabi niya kasi, 1:30PM daw ang start ng meeting, tapos double rates pa. Eh di nagbayad ako ng P40 kasi 20 minutes akong late. Pagdating ko dun, wala pa pala siya! :|
Eh di sana, nag-extend pa kami ni Adams, tapos mas late na lang yung oras na ni-set niya for the meeting, di rin naman pala niya mahahabol yung binigay nyang call time. GG talaga yang si Mikee eh. LELS >:))

She used to have a blog hosted by Blogspot (Blogger) before, but she deleted it 'cause she had to grow up and expose a better view of myself. Not that she wants to impress people, but she just wants to express goodness and good vibes. Pessimism does no good anyway. :)
She loves and she is loved. She lies and kills people through her words. She'd rather sing and dance than draw. She's bitchy and sweet at the same time. She aims high. And yeah, she does talk a lot.
