UNTITLED (Because of mixed emotions)

Today is my last day in the Philippines. (Well, last whole day)

I didn’t think it would be this hard. This is my safety net. The place where I have felt and learned and experienced everything there is about life. Although I am still young, I feel like I’ve been here for decades.. and this is the only place I call home. I wake up and sleep at night thinking of how beautiful and wonderful the Philippines is.

There are so many things that I will miss here in the Philippines. 

The food…

The places…

EDSA with the giant billboards.


Waiting for the train…


Flagging down a jeepney…


The religion…


The smiles…


But most of all I will miss…

My friends…

and my family…

Super dami kong mami-miss. On the positive note, I’m ready to start my new life. It’s better to look ahead into the future, and make it stable. While doing so, why not make it fun? 

I will always try to go back to the Philippines, to see my family and friends. Thank you for everyone who have made it special (parang hindi na babalik? Haha), and made it fun and memorable. 

I love all of you!!! Finally, I will understand what they mean when they say, ‘there’s no place like home’.

    Elsen, Don’t cry.. cause I’m trying to be strong as well. Thank you po for your comments, I just really love my family. 🙂 I’m just realizing now how difficult it is. It’s true.. I’m not blinded of the face that it’s the US, the only reason why I’m going there is because HE is living the the States, and just thinking of the future… of what benefits our lives the most. But, my heart and I guess your heart too, will always be here in the Philippines. I’m worried also, because my Dad is sick as well. I hope he lives on til he has great great grandchildren. Hehe. He knows naman. Wow! Magkakahiwalay pala talaga kayo. Ako, ako yung first na umalis sa family ko, kaya its really difficult. At least you already got used to some members of your family away, ako first time talaga. I agree, life is too short. It may be difficult now that i’m going to be living in a foreign country, but i’ll make do of what I have and exert effort to show my family that I’m still here.Thank you so much for your comment, can I call you “mommy” or “ate”? You made me teary-eyed. Thank you for the well wishes, and I hope youn live your happily ever after as well.Love,Jenina MariePS – Iba daw yung lasa ng Chicken Joy sa Cali. 😥 HUHU!!! Wala pa daw kasamang rice. Kakaiyak!!!! Haha

    i won’t promise you that southern california can substitute for your loss or compare the two worlds. i can’t replace your friends and family- which i will not because they are priceless. what i can tell you is that we can make the best of any enviroment given that we’re both together and always motivating each other to be our best. you’re not leaving them permanently… you’re just a pioneer. taking the steps grow and enjoy what love has given us both. SO LET’S DO THIS!!!! I’ll see you in less than 20hrs. LOVE YOU!
