Hi blog!

Hi guys. It’s exactly 4 in the morning and I had this sudden urge to get out of bed and just write something. My fingers are itching to write; I miss hitting the keyboard with stories and ideas vomiting out of my brain faster than my fingers can type. I know, I left my blog idle for quite some time, and I really do wish I could write from time to time. I know also that I have been saying that every time but still end up having no single update at all. Hindi bale, I am finally having my blog fixed (this time it’s for real!); from its layout to this bandwidth thing that I know nothing about. When everything’s done, I hope to be active again– again, I hope.

I really do miss staying up all night and do nothing but blog; that was something I really do often before. Lately, I have been hitting the sheets before 12mn so I can get a good night’s rest; then I’d wake up at around 8 and drag myself out of bed feeling like I stayed up aaaall night. Lagi akong inaantok! Sometimes I feel like I am gonna fall asleep in the shower. Even in barangay, I’d sleep on my way to work and get out of my car to get ready for the show (Eat Bulaga) at around 10:30 and my body would still feel so tired and heavy. I always think, “Shet, yung iba nga gumigising ng 6am, tapos ako literal na tanghali ang simula ng trabaho, hirap na hirap pa din bumangon.” I couldn’t help but also think, “Ngayon palang ba nagrrecuperate yung katawan ko tulog na nawala sa akin no’ng mga nakaraang taon?” Funny things is, it feels like my body is not used to getting a decent night’s sleep. Might as well stay up all night every day so I’d regain my vitality. Lol.

Speaking of staying up all night, I pulled an all-nighter last night because my best friends and I got together for the last time before one of them (Maryse) leaves for the States. As always, I had a good and fun time with that crazy bunch! Though I still wish the barkada was complete. (s/o to Kamille who’s in Australia and Ola who’s on the sick list “daw”) We spent 4 hours playing Cards Against Humanity and I honestly did not expect to have fun while playing the game. Masaya din naman pala! As a consequence, losers had to gobble up some Korean Spicy Noodles (the red one! 2x spicier than the original one!) You guys know how much I love spicy food, but damn this one made my stomach feel queasy in the morning. Welp, the challenge was good while it lasted.

Anyhoo, we all had a good time and we’ll definitely miss being together on random week nights. We will miss you, Maryse! The group won’t be the same without you– the laughterbater and the gullible one too! Actually, our barkada will never be the same unless we are complete. Each of us has this certain role and character that when one is not around it always feels like a piece is missing; kesyo walng tagatawa, walang nagpapatawa, walang slow, walang medyo engot, walang basag trip, atbp. Hay, this bunch is worthy of anything. Anyhoo, I hope we could still stay in touch at all times! Maryse has not left yet but I cannot wait for her to get back already, along with Kamille ofcourse! I hope to see you two return fulfilled and happy! On a different note, I wanna go to the States too! Namiss ko na ang mga itlog ng Sagamore, chos.

Oh by the way, I received an award earlier today from EdukCircle! I am one of this year’s Most Influential Female Celebrity Endorsers. Naks naman, hiyang hiya lang ako kanina. I don’t know but for some reason attending awarding ceremonies make me nervous. Kukunin ko lang naman yung award, feeling ko magpperform ako sa Superbowl. Chos! I guess this stage fright of mine never really went away. Parang reporting lang sa school, feeling ko nagrereport ako sa buong Pilipinas. Good thing we didn’t have any thesis defense back in college, baka feeling ko nagsasalita ako sa senado. Lol anyway, thank you very much EdukCircle for the recognition! It wouldn’t be possible without the support of the people who love me kaya maraming salamat din po sainyo. 🙂

What else.. hmm. I will try to be back later (If I still could! I hope my blog won’t crash this time!) and try to write some more. Perhaps about our short trip to Leyte for the Miss Millennial x Eat Bulaga OBB shoot? Or a Sunday Currently entry? Or I don’t know, something else, whatever I feel like writing when I get up/when my brain starts to function again. Time check, it’s 4:58am. Time to hit the sheets! Good night/morning and happy Sunday, everybody!

    Wohooo what a good morning surprise for me Meng! Happy pill ko magbasa blog mo. I feel like you are just on the other side talking to me personally. My fan heart is in cloud nine… Or maybe twenty four?! 😊😊😊
    More sleep for you and more writtings sana…. Love you Meng!
    Proud MAINEan,

    Good mornight Meng congrats sa recent award na natanggap mo. Na miss ko to ang magbasa ng blog mo. Excited na ako sa pagrelease ng book mo❤

  5. I also experienced that same situation and that could lead to burn out. Just stay strong and be motivated by the people who.loves you dearly. Enjoy the journey and stay positive always! There are lots like me who supports you and alden. Both of you are always in our prayers.

    Good to see an update from you. Know that you continue to entertain a lot of people which brings us all happiness. Waiting (somewhat patiently 😐) for the next MaiChard project….👍 Be safe and enjoy life!

  7. I miss this, reading about what are you doing this past days.. Haha. Hoping na tuloy tuloy na to! 😂 so happy for you! Love you ate Meng! 😊😍😘

  8. Awwww! Someone’s always saying goodbye! 🎼

    Ganun talaga, paths divert to smaller ones and bittersweet goodbyes follow. When this happens, I try to remember that I gave my all while it happened. I lived the moment, no regrets. Kase hindi na talaga magiging kagaya dati, pero mapapalitan naman ng bago at biyaya pa rin na minsan, nagkatagpo tagpo.

    My friends from college still hangout and connect, almost 20 years after. 🤣 Yes, magically, some things never change.

    Great job on posting, and all the best sa pagaayos sa blog design at web hosting. 👍🏼

  11. I also experience that same situation every morning before i go to work “yung feeling na nagalarm ka tapos hinihila ka ng kama mo na matulog pa”. But that is the reality of work, we must enjoy it because all the tiredness is worth it after all be postive and motivated.

    Weird huh our body betrays us with our sleeping patterns 😬 sometimes too much sleep isn’t enough and sometimes a couple of hours can still keep you going 😆
    Hope you do get the chance to regularly vomit words faster than you can type 😊 blogging really gives you a certain satisfaction so assuage it whenever you can…

    Hi Maine! So happy 😄 to see your blog again! Congrats 👏🏼 to your EdukCircle award. Rest assured you deserve it.

    You know your barkada 👩‍👩‍👧‍👧 reminds me of mine. We used stay together but due to certain career options 🤷‍♀️, some had to leave for US 🇺🇸, others for Manila and I ended up in Canada 🇨🇦. We rarely get in touch with one another, but I know nothing will ever change in our friendship. 😇

    Same as everyone else, I also experience exhaustion and fatigue on certain days. Sometimes I sleep 😴 late because a lot of things race through my mind. One thing I realize though is that when I think more about things beyond my control, worries, helplessness and sadness start to creep in. And I want to beat them. I once read that it can be resolved by a lifestyle change and by some dietary modifications. Easy for them to say, but it requires a lot of discipline and hard work. So I’d simply try to shut my mind for awhile to forget and I pray, only then would I feel a sense of great relief and a perfect control of my mind.

    A rare few 😉 can indeed beat the hell out of us. One day, they’ll get tired, too. For now, just always pray 🙏🏻 and stay strong. Nothing wins a daily dose of prayer, rationalization and optimism. Continue spreading happiness.

    Hi maine!

    Its nice to see you’re not giving up on blogging, most especially if time is not your closest friend. But I feel you, writing or blogging is to express oneself. 🙂 Btw, I can help you fix, troubleshoot and design you website. Just email me if you are interested from my service.

    Kind Regards,
