first #MemaEntry of 2018

Okay, I am not sure if people will (immediately) find out about this new entry because of my new blog layout. (That is not yet fixed!) But yeah, this is my first (mema) entry for the year 2018! Disclaimer: There is nothing to be nervous or scared about.. wala lang ito. #MemaEntry

So before anything else, let me greet all of you a very happy New Year! I hope you guys had a great time during the holidays, and I hope you were able to eat lots without any restriction or guilt! Minsan lang naman eh, diba… echos!

So I was looking for an old photo (circa 2012 to be specific) because I wanted to try this “Post an old and a present photo” thing on Facebook and see how much you have changed blah blah blah. Unfortunately, I do not have my old photos on my phone. (I don’t like copying files from my old phone to the new one because I won’t get the bago-yung-phone-ko feels, that’s why.) So anyway, since my Facebook got hacked 2 years ago and I failed to retrieve it, I was thinking where to get some old photos. Pinagisipan ko pa talaga. Then I realised I own a blog, since 2011. (Duh?) So I went to my old blog, the one registered on WordPress.com, then started browsing through. (I am also actually doing it now) I am not sure if all of my entries from 2011-2014 were transferred to this blog though, but they are all supposed to be here at mainemendoza.com. ??? Anyway, it makes me happy and a bit sad looking back on my life as a teenager– as a college student. I know I say this a lot, but I really miss how often I write back then. I miss how I write about random things like: a boring day at home; random day out with friends; the joy of purchasing The Sims; having my braces removed; finding a new song; sharing motivational quotes I found on Google, etc. And I love how I can write so much about a trivial topic. Writing used to be a priority back then; posting an entry was my weekly goal. I really enjoyed writing and narrating stories kahit na wala naman ng kwenta mga pinagsasabi ko. I just miss sharing random life happenings to my non-existent blog readers. (Charot, parang may tatlong readers naman ata ako. Lol!)

I miss those days! And looking at our (barkada and family) photos and seeing how much we have changed! Mga totoy at nene! Also, I get to remember my life as a student thru my blog posts; like failing to enlist my subjects on time; working on a school project; making it to the dean’s list etc. Nakakamiss ang mga panahong pumapasok ako ng naka-corporate attire! I don’t know if you know, but I am super makakalimutin! So I really have to write down the things I do not want to forget.  Like you can open up to me and tell me your secrets, give it a week, and poof! It became Koko Krunch! (Oo, yung sikreto mo naging cereal) Selective retention, maybe? O talagang makakalimutin lang? 

Anyway, here’s the thing I was telling you about.

11

From cave man..

1212

…to cave woman.

1313

Lol, that’s a somewhat decent throwback photo! Mukha na akong babae diyan with my short hair, but in reality, shibolibambam ang aurabels! (Mukha pa din namang shiboli sa 2017 photo, naka two piece lang ang ati mo, este koya. Charot!)

Anyway, I am curious! I wanna see some throwback and present photos of you guys! I am just not sure if it’s possible to leave a photo comment below– or if you want to expose your faces to the public– but if you are not ashamed to reveal some throwback pics, upload them and tag me on Twitter or Instagram! Tama na kakahalukay ng j3j3 phOtoS ni #cUtiEmHaiNe03, it’s your turn this time! 😛

By the way! Crowdsourcing: Does any of you know someone who creates blog layouts? I still want to modify the current one because it looks so plain to me. Gusto ko yung may pa-emeng konti. Lol if you know someone please let me know! Mention me on Twitter! Thanks!

That’s it for today! My first random blog post this 2018! Wala ng proof read proof read, lol! Here’s to another year full of surprises and new experiences!

    For a #MemaEntry, this sure is an impressive way to start what would surely be a creative year for you, Maine! This blog layout still does have some bugs & takes a while to load, but everything you write is certainly worth the wait!

    Love you, Maine! Looking forward to more of your writings.. 😘

    This #MemaEntry is full of insight on the things that matter to you most. When you say that you miss school, your activities, your wonderful loyal friends – it tells us you had a worthwhile student life and invested in the best of friends – the ones who will last a lifetime, and the ones who will remain loyal to you when everyone else scatters and leaves. Thanks for sharing old an new pictures. OMG. kaya pala mabagal ang pag load – traffic to your site is crazy!!
    Yes i think your site is a bit sparse and bare for your taste and personality. Too many white spaces that could be trimmed up with cool things that you like! Visit the sites other celebs that you like and see if they have features that you would like to have. That way you can show your list of “must haves” and “nice to haves” to whoever will layout the blog. Have fun doing it! Cheers and looking forward to a great 2018 with you! My Fanboy mode is on 24/7 !

    What has the dark world of showbiz done to you ??? You have not even knack ten percent of your potential and talents that millions of fans had been waiting for happily and patiently the past years. Fans you just ended up dumping particularly ADN who’s only fault is to love and support the both of you after making so many promised tandem projects that none materialized. Masakit lang 😭

    I miss the clean fun silly wholesome blogger girl. Blogger girl who became yaya dub. The girl that was full of substance, passion, good vibes, dreams and positive vision in life despite being a pessimist at times. The unique brand of wholesome comedy materials that all loved and sets you apart from everyone else in showbiz that even veteran comedians admired. Ang husay mo imagine kahit tissue pwede gawing materyal ng patawa. But things changed.

    Honestly, I was waiting for something ala Joyce Pring new year entry after your month long hiatus. A DEEP REALIZATION and LESSONS LEARNED after the storm and not another senseless bikini eme spread pic to be as sex for barakos lust. A blog entry that is something of WORTH and INSPIRATION like you used to before. A good follow-up after that open letter but now only a mema entry. Memapansin. Kanino ka ba nagpapapansin? Ewan.

    Guess we REALLY lost that girl sa makamundong Barbie world. Its just saddening you really DO NOT want to accept yourself, your huge worth, positive impact and good influence to millions from children to lola’s as old as 90 year old na pumipila ng oras for you in your job as a star. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO AFFECT PEOPLE POSITIVELY TOO BAD YOU OPTED TO CHOOSE AFFECT PEOPLE NOW NEGATIVELY. SAYANG.

    I was looking forward to your first blog entry for 2018 after that very honest open letter.
    Perhaps, it’s just me. But I’m sorry for thinking that your first entry will be about your reflections and perhaps lessons from your month-long hiatus away from the maddening crowd. 🙂 But perhaps not this time? Perhaps, you choose not to enlighten us more with your brilliant thoughts and ideas about how devoted many of your fans have been despite all the hoopla.
    I am still hoping you will one of these days, you will.
    Great pictures by the way. Still, I feel that the picture, particularly the second one, does not capture or mirror the change a role model and an ‘influencer’ like you perhaps may have after all these years , or perhaps just after your one-month absence.
    Wishing you the best still.

    Carry on Menggay. In an industry where almost everyone wears a false face,
    it is indeed a privilege to see one pure soul that is you. Write deep, write light,
    just write and follow the tides of your own thoughts. Hail to thee.
