Sketches Of Pain

I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"It can open your eyes, but it can’t see for you..."

It's weird how you learn new things these days. Less is more... Next time I have something heavy battling in my mind, I don't need to share. I think it's for Him and mine to keep. Always.

It is quite easy to get approval if we ask enough people, or if we ask those who are likely to tell us what we want to hear. Do not seek praise, seek criticism. It's the only way you'll learn, grow and better of yourself.

But you know you are my best other half and also my best critic... Yes, other half. The reason I’m exposing this is anxiety. If I don’t express it, my soul will just die in me. You got a part of me for all my brutal honesty. It bothers me to see us drifting, so I had to tell you something uplifting. The night’s getting darker, the day’s getting brighter. Reminiscing on the times when we were much tighter. Love supersedes you, everything I need. Together we achieve, hold my hand if you believe.

Street Grub.

Here's to this wonderful month full of surprises... It's been a while since I stayed here in my hometown for a long time. I went out one late afternoon and met my friends at the town proper, we found a new place which is previously a lomi house, they expanded and renovated a little bit. And so we tried the food there, we ordered pizza and we later discovered that some ingredients are fresh from Barcelona and the pizza dough was made from scratch! Hahaha what a treat we had. The owner told us that he grew up there and went home obviously to retire and run his small business here. I was overwhelmed with gladness simply because, not only the food was very cheap, the place also had a "cocktail bar" in it! Haha the owner himself will make you a sangria. We didn't try one tho. Here are a few snaps. Sorry I didn't take a picture of the place but to describe, it's just like a common merienda place with a feel na parang nasa bahay ka lang... Because the owner said that's how it is in Spain also "parang nasa bahay lang". It didn't make so much impact tho because it's one of those typical mini canteens in our town. Unlike the food, it's like digging gold in your own backyard. Haha! :)

Their P25 "Burger with Fries" :))

 Pizzaaaa... P140 only! Good for 3-4 :)
