Something Else

To my almost 30 year old self

Oh  geez, now you are  almost thirty, crazy right? I know you still feel like  your  young Taylor Swift sometimes lol. You can’t even ditch your sneakers and be a lady like and embrace the world of stilettos!.

I know you’ve been doing great lately. Happy heart, successful career , not too many friends but definitely worth keeping! what more could you ask for right?.

Time  flies so quickly, I  can still remember how you used  to play  as a kid, you hated dolls, you’d rather play with toy guns and karate instead of being a princess yet you wanted to be a nun, then you realized that ” boys” do exist !. You are so complicated lol but you did well, I think hahaha.

I am actually so proud of you! you’ve been through a lot but it did not stop you from doing things that you dream of.  So far, so good. Do you still remember  how you work hard in college for your tuition?  damn, that was good old days tho.   You were good in washing dishes! and made lots for friends being a working student.  I can still remember the look at mom and dads eyes  when you finally graduated, full of joy and pride and you were telling your 20 year old self  that you so deserve it.

I know you’re happy now.  Well, You’ve had your fair share of  heartbreaks and struggles , that wasn’t easy I know,  but I’m happy it did not stop you from believing that there are still decent, worth loving and trusting humans in this so twisted word hahaha.

P.S  Just keep being awesome  and don’t stop dreaming!

When you’re pinay and dating a white dude

When  we went public about our  relationship  and especially when got engaged  we got a lot of attention. Most were genuinely happy about us  being together although Jacob got lots of  joke about me being a ” mail order bride”  and people I know congratulating  me like I won  the freaking lottery.

We  Pinoys are  one of the nicest people  you’ve ever met and  we are very accommodating although we have this mentality   that whenever  we see  a girl dating or married  to a white dude  that means ” kumikitang kabuhayan”  , people would  think, he’s gonna support his chick, bring her to “Merica”( that’s how Jacob say it) get her a green card and she’ll be rich.. Lame….  you know nothing Jon Snow. I honestly got lil piss whenever  someone  out of the blue would make a comment or message  me about me and Fiance and tells me  that I am doing the right thing and being smart , he ( Jacob) will make me rich!  wtf…

When I was younger, I don’t really like foreigners.  I even told my self  that I will never date one, but things changed haha I guess when you got older and experienced some really bad  things, it makes you  change your perspectives.   When I got  my heart broken by some pinoy  guy I  told my self, I am no longer dating my own kind and that’s how I started entertaining the other specie  hahaha.

We  all know and we cannot deny the fact that  some  girls would apparently   do that  a but these are  the Pro’s like those hanging out in Greenbelt and some high end bars lol.  Well they are hookers so what do you expect hahaha.

Jacob and I never expected that  we will end up being together.  We started with friendly  talks and I had no high hopes of anything, I was just enjoying what we have.  If you are following my Blog, I wrote about how we started ( Swipe, Swipe Matched!). So it was not like I planned on luring him so  he’d end up falling inlove with me  and the rest is history.

Foreign guys who are married to Filipinas might be from a better country who earns Dollars, Euros  or whatever currency that is  but that doesn’t  mean that they  have a fat bank account and you can just marry them, be happy and live like a lord!. They are also like  us! though some are ridiculously  white (I always make fun of them especially my Fiance’s  white arse), they  work hard,  so it’s not  like  when you  get marry life will be  a fairy tale.  Although I must say that it will make a difference, given that you’ll have the opportunity  to be in Merica and have a better life but it’s more than that.

Any relationship would only work if you have  the dedication and  the purest intentions. Also, it will not be easy to give up  what you have, family friends and all the things you used  to do  to be with the person  you love. Imagine how hard it will be to be  in a foreign country, without your family, friends and  starting a new life . The point is, sometimes you find what you’ve been missing  all your life 8,406 miles away and you are willing to do whatever it takes to  be with that person.

The brownminion’s bucket list! 

I’m almost thirty and before I become too old I have a looooong list of what I want to do and where I want to go. Though I know that I may not be able to do all these, my hopes are up and no one can stop me from dreaming and believing that nothing is impossible.

So here are the top  5 in my list:

1. Climb Machu Picchu – I am not really a fan of mountain climbing but I am so fascinated by the ruins and more intrigue as to how an ancient civilization were able to create such an amazing architectural, agricultural and engineering and I am not ruling out the Alien Theories.

2. Skydive in Dubai and ride some freaking camels.

3. Scuba Dive in great Barrier Reef – I’m no Pro , I’ve only tried diving once and I loved it.
4.  See cliff of  Moher and really get drunk in an Irish Pub and banter with some Irish lads.

5.  Have tea in London Yes! in London and nowhere else!

Something Else

Swipe,swipe matched! 

Well this is something that is so not related with the usual stuff that I write.  But, I have this feeling that I need to write it mostly because I’m inspired. Well I am not really a fan of discussing my private life with people so if you will be asking me tons of questions after reading this I’d probably gonna go crazy so please people be gentle on me😇
With the blog title itself , You’d probably have guessed already that this has something to do with online dating.

It all ​ ​​​started with my Tinder Match, yeah you heard ​it​ right haha.  Asian girls are pretty reluctant to talk about their dating life especially online dating but not me.

For me  it’s always  good to talk to people from the other side of the world, sharing some common interest, could be food, travel or just some random shits haha. I enjoy knowing people.

Wasn’t really looking for anything in particular,  but there comes this guy who I assumed liked my profile first since when I swiped right it did matched! Yeah!!  I really don’t know why I did that time.  I’m very picky and I  kinda creep out first  before I decided to swipe right,  but if my memory serves me well, I kinda stared in his picture for a bit, more of wondering why his eyebrow is prettier than mine😂.

I got all  curious since his  the tag line is  ” A guy with good intentions”.   What I clearly remember tho  is that we started talking on a Valentines day  when  he was visiting his family in Evansville IN and I was home all feeling lonely on V-day haha .  We have all these friendly talks, mostly about movies and him telling me that he is going to my country in a few months.

One thing about online dating like  Tinder as you may all know, is that there  are lots of horny bastards ( excuse me for the language, but I’m not really sorry hahaha) so I don’t have high expectations with the people I  meet online,  but it’s still worth a try,  after all I still have faith in humanity lol.

Then there comes the start of our  daily chats and him kinda creeping in my IG, I got this notification that someone followed me and keeps on  liking my pictures, what a creep right? hahaha . Actually it’s kinda flattering, I must look that good hahaha ( for once please let me be cocky)​.  He  asked me if I would hang out with him and said No  and even told him that I don’t want to sleep with him lol​, blame it to some other guys who makes us girls all suspicious with the male specie​ and their intentions .
But I was all so wrong, it turned out that he is ​a ​descent, ​charming​, ​funny tho sometimes moody like a girl having her PMS.. hahaha , I hope he is not read​ing ​ this…​and he definitely caught my attention big time! To make things short, we basically hit it off darn well and we made it all official, like me and him, boyfriend and girlfriend on April Fools day except that it wasn’t a prank, it honestly still makes me giggle until now , I’ve never been this open about my relationship to public before so I feel weird  in a good way and ridiculously happy! I was bewitched by this white arse or maybe just in love hahaha.

Well things are really going well and I am super excited to be with my ex tinder match turned man of my dreams…
