Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
-James 4:14, 15

Hello sugarfree.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

yesterday gail finally said the words i couldnt say: nakakalungkot pala no. affected?! you bet.

we risked suffocation, hunger and thirst last night so we could see sugarfree play for the last time. im sure we share the same love for this band with a lot of people. kagabi pa lang sa saguijo kitang kita na how many of us sing sugarfree songs as we tread the sea that is life.

i cannot believe that i love sugarfree that much, that i was almost crying when ebe got to the stage and everybody cheered. no, ebe, you cant do this to me. ano nang magiging theme song ko pag may bagong mangyayari sa buhay ko?

sugarfree's songs sing about the extraordinary life that everyone has. i used to wake up to hay buhay every morning as it blasts on my phone at 6am. my phone got lost but i still sing the song in my mind oftentimes when i wake up the morning. gail sang kwentuhan when he and i were becoming the closest of friends. ikaw pala spoke about how amazing love is and how it found the both of us. prom will be my wedding dance when i renew my vows with gail. los banos made me fall in love with my town more, and i sing wala na akong hihilingin everytime im reminded of the sweetest gift that i get to hug every day. wag ka nang umiyak... *sigh* God sings this to me whenever im hurt and powerless.

marami pa. amazing how i can make their songs MINE without taking it away from another person. i bet the girl beside me last night has her own story in which kwarto plays as the background music.

for writing the songs of life, thank you sugarfree. there's no goodbye cause the music is in my heart.

PS: photos and videos next time, we're too puyat.

UPDATED with gail's photos and video :)

Around Tagaytay

We had to feed ourselves during our honeymoon so we went to check out Memory Lane, a quaint restaurant off the main road, and Fire Lake Grill in Cliffhouse. We got to Memory Lane through a P20-trike ride which was an impossible way to get to Antonio’s that’s why we did not get to have dinner there. So now, we’re practicing driving with the most patient teachers Mommy Sha and Daddy Vic. And I think I’m getting better, thanks to the motivation that is unreachable-by-commute: Antonio’s.

Anyway… we just had coffee and potato wedges in Memory Lane, so I don’t think I can give a worthy review, just this: that the coffee tasted like the ones Kuya Oliver brews at home, and that the potato wedges had little cheese on it. The coffee was special because it tasted good, but I drink that every weekend at Ciudad, and for free, so it’s nothing worth paying for anymore. As for the potato wedges, we asked for additional cheese and we were charged an additional P80 for that. Nyek.  We later had dinner at Fire Lake Grill where it was uber expensive and dark.
