Why do I Like the Rain?

It's my Life No Comments »

I went to my cousin’s apartment to relax and to write. Their apartment is on the second floor and they are only the two of them occupying the place. Since, I cannot find peace at our own house; I told them that I would be staying there for a while. Their dining table is located near a window. I decided to take a sit on a chair by the window and started writing.

Earlier that morning, my mother was with them as well. I get so stress staying at our own house. We have a visitor who really makes me mad just looking at her face; knowing that she’s around or merely hearing her voice. Honestly, I cannot help being so mean towards her. :( I know that I cannot help the bad feeling I have, so I decided to leave the house. I’ll tell you more about her on another article.

While I am trying to get started with my piece, the rain started to fall down. It wasn’t just a drizzle; it was raining hard. As I watch the rain, I felt a soothing feeling. I feel like the rain washes all the anxiety, the confusions and the hatred I am feeling. I needed the rain to temporarily cleanse my soul. For I know that until I wash those feelings away from my heart then I would be truly cleansed.

I guess that’s the reason why I love the rain. It provides me a good feeling especially during the times these times when I am confused. When I want my heart and my mind to accept a fact that I should believe in and live with it.

I needed the rain to calm my feelings. I needed the rain for when it pours; it is as if emptying the heartaches I feel in my heart. I needed the rain to wash and clear my weary eyes.

As the rain starts to calm down, I can also feel my heart and my emotions calming. I wish I could stay in Washington State where rainy days are countless.

I love the rain because it is the only way to the rainbow.

Ciao! :)

Safe Haven

My Books 1 Comment »

How can a man say that he loves her wife if he is beating her up? How can a wife let her husband do it to her? How can a love so pure and true that someone’s spirit will come back to ensure the safety and emotional welfare of the family that he or she has left behind? How acceptance helps people moves on with their lives?

These are just few things which continue to linger on my mind. I just finished reading the Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. It is the first novel I have read that was written by Nicholas. My youngest sister Pauline was the one who introduced me to Mitch Albom and Nicholas Sparks. I have told you in my previous post that when I read, I want to relax. That is why I do not feel like reading the novels written by Paolo Coeli and the like.

Nicholas Sparks and Mitch Albom are Pauline’s favorite authors. We already have the three novels written by Mitch Albom which are internationally released namely; Five People You Meet in Heaven, Tuesdays With Morrie and For One More Day. We have yet to get his other novel, Have a Little Faith.

I was strolling at SM Mega Mall last May 26, two days before Pauline’s birthday. I love going to different bookstore while I am at the mall. On that day, Powerbooks had a 20% off for all Nicholas Sparks’ novels. I have not read any Nicholas Sparks novels then, and there are many interesting novels available. I heard Patty and Pauline talking about the different novels of Nicholas. I know that Pau have finished reading several novels and she wanted to start a collection. As presents, I decided to get Pau two novels. My dilemma then was which one?

Safe Haven was his latest novel, so I decided to get it. It took me a while to decide which one to get that I sent a text message to Pau asking what novel is good to read. Her reply, ALL!!! Until, we agreed upon getting The Lucky One. Her first option was The Guardian, but it is not available. So, then I went home with The Lucky One and Safe Haven. :) Of course, Pau is happy. On the other hand, I bought Mean Girls VCD for my other sister, Patty, as a birthday present, who celebrated her 27th last June 2. :)

I just finished reading Nancy Drew’s 5th Mystery and I decided to take a break from reading mystery books. I thought of getting Have a Little Faith, but we still have a lot of unread books in our shelves. I have this agreement with myself that I will not buy another book until I finished reading one. :)

Almost all the people I met at Powerbooks are Nicholas Sparks’s fans. :) I decided to read one of the books I gave Pau. She is currently reading, The Lucky One, and so I end up reading Safe Haven. :)

I am not used to reading long novels anymore. I got bored during the first few chapters but I really slept late because I just can’t my get my eyes off the book! How can that be boring if I can’t stop reading it?!? :)
I guess I finished the novel in 2 ½ days. Well, that may sound long but that’s an accomplishment for me already! :)

I enjoyed reading the novel. :) I loved the way Nicholas wrote the novel. He used simple English terms and described each scene using straightforward word and terms. It is very easy to understand. I need not to get my Meriam-Webster to check on the words. But, what is admirable in his novel is that, it captured the heart of its reader. It has affected me emotionally more than mentally. :)

Safe Haven is a story of a wife who has been experiencing domestic violence from his husband. A husband who adored her yet beats her to death. Katie or Erin is a woman of courage and cleverness who escaped from her husband. At the end of the story, her husband still found her. Justice prevailed though, when Kevin was killed as Katie protects herself.

Another touching part is the letter created by Jo, a friend whom Katie met when she first arrived in Southport. Katie didn’t have any idea that Jo was the late wife of the new man in her life, Alex. Little did she know that the Jo whom she came to know, who laughed with her, drank wine with her and watched the stars with her was an angel who led her to Alex. I was really moved after reading the Jo’s letter. I was really moved by the novel. :)

I am glad that my first attempt of reading a Nicholas Sparks novel was a great one. My next novel to read is his A Walk to Remember. I have watched the movie though, but Pauline said that there is a big difference between the book and the movie. Well, I’ll find it out. :)

Ciao! :)

I Will Still Love You

songs of my life No Comments »

It is the Wedding Month again, and last Sunday in ASAP Rocks, the sessionistas sang couple of songs that I can consider as wedding songs. While I was reading Safe Haven outside our house, I heard the sessionistas sang this song. I really went inside to watch their number because the song really captured me. I didn’t know what the title of the song, but I asked my cousin April to write the phrase, I will still love you.

When I got my chance to our computer today, I did a search for the said song and I was lucky to find it right away. :) I don’t know, but maybe, it’s not only me who was captivated by this song.

I believe that in spite of all the relationship issues our world faces today, one can still love someone so dearly. :)

Oh my I really miss singing in weddings. :) I miss my pianist friend Kiko and my singing partner, Richard.  Haven’t talk to you guys in a while. I hope that one day, we can sing together again like we used to.

Here is a video I found from youtube and I hope you enjoy you’ll like it the way I do. :)

Ciao! :)

Kahit na Anong Mangyari

songs of my life 1 Comment »

We had a videoke session on my birthday last Saturday. My sisters, cousins and I spent hours singing with our midi player. I have been looking for a certain song that I have sang to ney about 12 years ago. Yes that long. He was my first official boyfriend and my first love. When we had our relationship in 1999, many people were against it. My family and his family didn’t have any good relationship because of what happened to his elder brother and my cousin. In any case, since I love him, and I do not careless whatever people would say, I still went on with the relationship in spite of all the odds.

When ney and I were talking and having a sweet time together, I remember singing this song to him. I knew then that our relationship will go through a hard and rough road but I still went on.

Our relationship.. our love did go through a lot of hardships, and there are still certain things that we need to fix, yet we’re still together. And I believe, that our love would be able to stand the test of time. I have faith. And, I have prayed and continue praying to God for our love to last a lifetime. :)

For ney, I would still sing this song for you. It was a song from Gimik the Reunion and the lyrics really meant so much to me. Hope you enjoy this like I do. :)

Ciao! :)
