Airports: Saddest and Happiest place on earth

The hardest words is to say goodbye. A farewell to someone you love, or someone you hold dear. You can’t help but to cry everything out, trying to express the worst feeling your heart is trying to say.

Today, June 30, 2016 marked the day of her travel going back to Canada. Thus i consider Airports as the Saddest and Happiest place in the planet – and today i have experienced the sad part of it.

Saying goodbyes has never been easy. Few days before the scheduled departure, you’re trying to keep the sorrow you’re feeling. Trying to be jolly and happy – masking the inevitable sadness as she leaves you.

Trying to be the strong one, doing the usual things you used to do – like laughing at none sensed moment, or just a mere holding of hands wherever you go. I am trying to do all of this when i still can. When I am still near you.

To my dearest, you know i am the stronger one, i am the resilient and the brave between the two of us. But today i realized i was all of this because of you. Now that your traveling on the other side of the globe – where my day is your night and your night is my day, i feel “less” whithin me. 

I am happy i married you – it would act as a repellent to guys out there. 

I will love you here, hoping you could feel it there. I will take care of both families, and anyone you hold dear in here. I will always let our LOVE be my greatest aim. Till we meet again soon. It’s not that i will never see you – it is just that i will miss you and everything about you and about US.

I LOVE YOU, and i will see you soon. Maybe on an Airport. 

And on that day i will see you again – it will be the Happiest place on earth.


Wrapping up my 2015

Happy Holidays everyone!

This year has been a ride for everyone. Some may say this has been a great year for them, while some it may be on the down side – the opinion lies within each individual. So for this last article for this year, I would love to share my adventure throughout this year. I am going to wrap it up using my words, for this year has been giving me great rides.

Does anybody feel as if it was just like yesterday that 2015 has begun? I could still remember how I packed up some shirts to wear for a mass on the 24th of December. Then 5 minutes before midnight of the 31st , everybody is ready to light their firecrackers as we embrace the year 2015.


2015 was my most busiest, yet productive year ever! I was about to finish my college by the end of March. It was a tough ride – not only for me, but also to my fellow colleagues. All the nights we spent studying for the final exams and all the coffee I drank from four (4) different coffee shops in the city. We have surely burned the midnight oil for us to be able to achieve what we want – to graduate.

Next, graduation was up! We did it! For four (4) long years we made it! It was one of our great achievements that we have survived college. All the hard-work and sacrifices have paid off. On the other hand, it was both a personal goal and relationship goal for me and my girlfriend – Rosenblum Legaspi (search her up! :D). We have been through almost everything in school, from studying, hospital duties, having fun with friends, soccer games, and much other stuff.

Me and my Rosen :)

Next stop this year was our Nursing Licensure Exam. Approximately 2 months after our graduation, I and Rosen gambled to take the board exam earlier. This is unorthodox to what others usually do. To cut the long story short – we made it again! We passed the Licensure Exam – another seemingly a relationship goal again as to what the social media calls it. We were license nurses here in the Philippines and got our ID’s (1) one month after the result has been posted.

The two (2) paragraphs alone make it seems to be easy and smooth but In fact, these paragraphs consists a lot of sacrifices, happy, sad, full of anxiety moments. Moments which when I relinquish in my mind makes me want to pat my back and say “good job Stephen, you did it”.

When the year was about to end, my adolescence stage has slowly faded away as my 21st birthday has arrived. Transition, accomplishments and change sums up my 2015.

Now that 2015 is going to leave us for good soon, may we always remember to thank the people who surround us all year round. The people who have inspire us to do the unthinkable, the people who have made us smile and made us who we are for the next few years ahead.

Retreat to what we have learned from this year and keep eyeing on our goals for the 2016.



She’s leaving soon

She’s leaving soon. I stumbled upon my old pile of papers – and found a green booklet she had given me when we were still in college. Flipping through the pages, remarkably feeling like i was time travelling. Every leaf tells a story back two years ago, of a journal of our every day’s activities together. We both knew this time will come, back almost four years ago when i first laid eye on her. I’m reading this booklet while she is still here, yet I couldn’t bare thinking that i might find myself doing this again In the near future, but then she won’t be here. The nostalgia that i may feel, and as manly as my manliness can go – I might cry, and again if i will weep at that moment – she had already left. 

She’s leaving soon but her heart will stay with me. Likewise, she will bring my warmth on the other side of this world – where my day is her night, and her night is my day. Maybe the longest years of our lives, an agonizing year without her. We always tell each other – “let love be our greatest aim”, it has always been our mantra since the beginning of US. Now, i guess our greatest aim is to be on each others arms again. 

The clock’s ticking, yet i will make every moment count. Each day will be a day as if it were our last. Back four years ago, when i first saw this girl – it was fortuitous. I am at great joy to have her. She was apt to leave soon, but just hang on still because i will reunite with you. In lieu, i will be thinking of her, in fact – there will be no day of which you will not pass my mind. 

We will see again – i promise. And when that day will come, i will embrace her just like the way i will when she will leave. And that would be the moment that I’m looking forward to.
