“Let's get one thing straight, I'm not.”

It’s time… time to end this long distance relationship with Rodney. It’s not easy, but I have to do it. Our goal isn’t getting anywhere, and I don’t wanna spend my life just waiting for him in vain. I don’t wanna compete with his dreams. I want a partner that I can touch, hug, and kiss. I can’t imagine having an invicible partner for a year or so. Sometimes love just ain’t enough.

Rodney, thanks for staying with me for 14 months. Take care of yourself there in Dubai. See you soon.

Sometimes Love Just Aint Enough
Patti Smyth & Don Henley

Now, I don’t want to lose you, but I don’t want to use you
just to have somebody by my side.
And I don’t want to hate you,
I don’t want to take you, but I don’t want to be the one to cry.

And that don’t really matter to anyone anymore.
But like a fool I keep losing my place
and I keep seeing you walk through that door.

But there’s a danger in loving somebody too much,
and it’s sad when you know it’s your heart you can’t trust.
There’s a reason why people don’t stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just aint enough.

Now, I could never change you, I don’t want to blame you.
Baby, you don’t have to take the fall.
Yes, I may have hurt you, but I did not desert you.
Maybe I just want to have it all.

It makes a sound like thunder, it makes me feel like rain.
And like a fool who will never see the truth,
I keep thinking something’s gonna change.

But there’s a danger in loving somebody too much,
and it’s sad when you know it’s your heart you can’t trust.
There’s a reason why people don’t stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just aint enough.

And there’s no way home, when it’s late at night and you’re all alone.
Are there things that you wanted to say?
And do you feel me beside you in your bed,
there beside you, where I used to lay?

And there’s a danger in loving somebody too much,
and it’s sad when you know it’s your heart they can’t touch.
There’s a reason why people don’t stay who they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just ain’t enough.

Baby, sometimes, love… it just ain’t enough.
Oh, Oh, Oh, No.

My Birthday 2006

My birthday this year fell on a Tuesday. Urgh, not good. I hate birthdays on weekdays. Anyway, I got this nice idea to extend the celebration. Hence, I was on leave for 5 straight days, May 19 – 23. Honestly, I just wanted to get off from work and didn’t plan for anything special on my birthday.

May 19 – I went to Fitness First RSC early in the morning to attend the Cosmic Cycling class and lift some weights. Afterwards, I went to Glorietta 4 and bought 8 “The Da Vinci Code” movie tickets for me, Henry, Jones, Jim, Brad, Matt, Ace, and Vench. I stayed in Franciz’s flat to chill out that afternoon. Then around 7:00PM, the 8 of us had our dinner at Food Choices G4 and watched the movie by 9:00PM. The movie ended around 11:30PM.

May 20 & 21 – I just went to gym and stayed home.

May 22 – Vench told me that we’re gonna have dinner at Franciz’s place together with Ace. So I was expecting only the 4 of us. But to my surprise, the whole gang was there! Vench, Ace, Jane, Marc (Jane’s BF), Henry, Jones, Arnold, Esh, Star, and Franciz! Plus, I have a letter and a phone call from Rodney. Oh my! I never had a hint on this. I’m not gonna forget this one! The bomb! Thanks to my bestfriend Franciz for throwing me a party even if I didn’t plan for one, and to my friends who made this possible! Muah!

May 23 – It’s my day! I always visit Antipolo Church (Nuestra Señora De La Paz Y Buen Viaje) every year on my birthday. So for this year, I was with bestfriend Franciz. We left his place around lunch time and made it to Antipolo after 2 hours. Lastly, I dropped him off back to his place and went home.

We went to Puerto Galera last April 30, 2006 – May 1, 2006. But wait, who’s the “we” im talking about? Well, I belong into 2 groups.

  1. My Family – My Mom, Marz Bro, Melvin Bro, Rachelle Cousin, and Jason (Marz’s friend).
  2. My Friends – Arnold & Esh, Henry & Jones, Jim & Brad, and Rey.

We stayed in Villa Lato Montagna Lodge, White Beach. It was just 2 minutes walk to the beach front. We occupied two separate rooms for my family and friends. Anyway, here are the pics! Hehe.

Bored on board! (Marz Bro and I)

Technically, Rodney and I were single for 24 hours. Thank God… we’re back in each other’s arms. I hope that this 24-hour gap we had will make us stronger and better. As they say, “Love is sweeter the second time around.” I just hope it will definitely be.

It’s Over

Yes, it’s over. I’m single. No more second set of 525,600 minutes for Rodney and I. Sigh.

April 22, 2005, around 9:30AM, Rodney saw the nickname “BEDAN`xp” parked in a GLBT IRC chatroom. It was me. I used to park my nickname there while at work. So why “BEDAN`xp”? Hmm, BEDAN because I graduated from San Beda College. XP? Nothing, just to sound like a computer nerd.

He sent me a message to start our conversation with this pick-up line, “based on my experience, 8 out of 10 Bedans are good in bed.” Whahaha! That was a good start. It was memorable though it lasted for only 30 minutes. We traded phone numbers and started texting right after.

April 24, 2005, around 1:00AM, I had no plans to go on a gimik that night. I was half asleep when he called. His sweet voice woke me up and invited me to go to BED Malate. We flirted and danced the night away. We went home around 7:00AM.

Just a couple of days after our first EB, Rodney wanted to take our newly established friendship to the next level. He said, “I love you”, but I just replied, “Thank you”. Not that I don’t want him to be my other half, but I wanted to give it some time to know him more.

Anyway, I was planning to join BnT’s (the chatroom i usually hangout) Puerto Galera gateway even before I met him. So I invited him if he could tag along and be my date in PG. He affirmed to join just 2 days before the trip. Honestly, my secret plan was that I’ll say yes to Rodney in PG because I want it to be very special. But if he decided not to come, I won’t go either.

April 30, 2005, around 7:00AM, I went to Eastwood to meet Rodney and GL (my former officemate and also a member of BnT). We had our breakfast and went to PG afterwards.

May 1, 2005, around 6:30AM, we woke up in each other’s arms. Then I whispered to his ears, “I love you.” I can’t explain how happy we were that moment. We spent our first day with so much memories together.

May 2, 2005, around 9:30AM, we left PG and headed back to Manila.

May 1, 2006, around 6:30AM, 525,600 minutes were gone, I was still in PG with family (will write a post regarding our family summer vacation next time). I went to the shore and picked up a good shaped stone, prayed for our relationship to be stronger and long-lasting, and threw it to the sea.

Now, we will be dealing with our second set of 525,600 minutes. Hope it will be as good or even better than the first one. I love you so much, Rodney.

Rated PG!

My family and I will be going to Puerto Galera on April 30 – May 1. I already paid the downpayment of our room accomodation through bank deposit. The rest will be shouldered by my mom. Hehe.

Honestly, I am very much excited with this summer getaway for two reasons. First, it will be exactly a year ago when Rodney and I went to PG. It’s gonna be our 1st Anniversary this May 1, 2006. Sad though that we will be miles apart on that day.

The second one is about my mother. She is a certified game addict of Level Up’s ROSE Online. Yes, no joke. During weeknights and weekends, it’s a miracle not to see her infront of the computer playing this MMORPG. Thus, she can’t spend time anymore with us. But to my surprise, she’s the one who brought up the idea of having a short vacation. Now’s the perfect time to bond the family together again.

I love you Lucky!

Jim, Brad, Jones (Brad’s officemate), and I watched D’ Lucky Ones last Wednesday at Glorietta 4 Cinema 2. This film won’t let you stop laughing. Promise!

D' Lucky Ones

The story of Lea (Pokwang) and Tina’s (Eugene Domingo) friendship starts from the days when they would chase Vilma Santos in all of her shows, shootings and guest appearances. Their common passion for the young star made them stick with each other. Their bond strengthens and they vow to marry their would-be children before Lea (Pokwang) leaves for Korea to work. But what happens, years later, is disaster as Sandara Park and Joseph Bitangcol, both named ‘Lucky’, despise and avoid each other. But by some twist of fate, their anger turns to love only to be stopped by their own parents’ misunderstanding and rivalry over a guy named Ralph (JR Valentin – Victor, the police, of Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros)! What follows is a series of confrontation with funny, witty and spectacular use of Vilma Santos’ most memorable lines and scenes in her most memorable films.

The two mothers’ “wickedness” reaches new heights as they use their children and their love story to hurt each other. Everything becomes comically explosive which only true love, real friendship, forgiveness and the power of a true Star could bring to a halt!

The high-energy cast will surely bring excitement to the audiences as they chronicle the Star for All Season’s career creatively incorporated in the narrative. They would surely enjoy the trip down memory lane as also incorporated in the film are Vilma’s signature expressions and songs, such as My Boy Lollipop, Sad Movies and Sixteen, all rendered in grand production numbers. This project is daring and definitely not to be missed.
