Chinatown Courtship

I am still busy with reviewing for my December exams and I couldn’t update every day or weekly on my blog but the good news is: my writing buzz is still on. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am sharing this to you now and I hope you take a chance on reading this.

Do tell me what you think of my story through a comment here or on wattpad.com ๐Ÿ˜€

Without further a-do here it is:

china court

About the story:

Jake meets Lin ,a unique Filipino- Chinese girl, at the busy streets of Binondo Manila and instantly falls in love with her. Join him as he faces the challenges to have a chance and a place in Lin’s heart.

Excerpt from Part 1:

Walking around Binondo, Manila was a past time I developed after my summer internship shift ended. I enjoyed the mixture of different architectural structures in the area and it always felt like I am transported to Europe and China at the same time.

The people you see in the area were also a mixture cultures, at one side of the district are Filipinos chatting madly in either Tagalog or Visayan. At the next corner, you hear Mandarin, Fukien or Cantonese speaking Chinese high school girls walking behind you.

This is what I like at this part of the city. It’s never the same every day, there will always be peculiar or special about this place.

Short Hiatus in preparation for Licensed DMD Examinations. (WOLM#30)

I have been too busy with Dentistry these past few days. I started to review and practice for the national licensure exams. Of course, I miss writing for all of you but I need to finish this part of my life before time runs out. Everyone, including me, is showing signs of impatience when it comes to my relationship with my chosen course.

It lasted 8 long years and I am glad that it is almost over. Between finding myself and what I want to do I decided to stick to this career path rather than change to something more convenient to everyone and myself.

With the help of everyone telling me “Sayang naman yung pinagaralan mo.” on the side, I later on went back to study what I needed to finish. It is somewhat by force but I pushed myself to go back so I cannot blame anyone besides myself.

One reason why I felt alone ,sad and even depressed was this college degree but I could say that I am already near my happiness because I now see light at the end of the tunnel. A little bit more effort and sacrifices and I will be able to finish this part of my life and close it. I can tell myself that I did all I can, with the help of the people around me, to finish and end this miserable part of my life.

I need more motivation and patience to end victoriously.

I should not let anything or anyone stop me from achieving and attaining success.

I ask for prayers and encouragements from all of you so that I can accomplish and finish these tasks triumpantly.

I also hope for understanding in terms of posting and blog entries. This blog may not be maintained while I am in the process of accomplishing what needs to be done.

I still have one more book review in store for everyone and I am starting to write the review and it may be posted this weekend. That entry might be my last review post for my personal blog, for now. I will still update everyone on my status and how I am feeling but I cannot promise to accomodate extracurricular activities during my review period.

I hope you won’t leave me while I am in the process of building my life in terms of my chosen profession.

‘Til next blogpost!

On mother’s day. (WOLM #29)

I know you never consider each other as family.

It seems like both of you do not like each other.

I hope while you are out with her family on a mother’s day you remember mine.

I hope you remember without her there won’t be someone who would give her all to make you feel important in this world.

I hope you remember her and the way she picks me up after you fight or make me feel worthless.

I hope you thank her for being there when you cannot be the one who would lift my spirits up.

I hope that one day you and her can agree and be one family.

and I hope one day you will only have your mother and mine to greet and thank during this day.

Drained. (WOLM#28)

I come here to write about what I am currently feeling, it’s not the positive feeling.

I feel drained when I wake up in the morning. Tension and anxiety run in my brain from the minute I wake up to the time that I am about to go sleep.

In the end, I find myself in a stagnant position.

It’s not a nice feeling. I hate not doing anything. Is it fun to have a stable job with nothing to do? No. Is it fun to hang around the house with nothing to do? No.

I am a workaholic stuck in a body of a procrastinator. I do not know what to do. I need to set goals but I find myself distracted or simply hopeless in a task I deem to not be successful or unique.

Why do I give up so easily? Challenges used to be my friend. Now, it is my foe. I used to love it when I am in a competition or simply something that let my brain do all the work. Now, I am simply finding an activity that requires the least amount of effort.

Why is this happening to me? I really do not have any idea.

Stressed out?

Overworked?

Hopeless?

Hormonal Imbalance?

Mental Health Issues?

Depression?

I really do not know.

I try my best to help myself cope with this feeling of passiveness. Reading books, scribbling on paper, writing whatever is on my mind, etc. but I still cannot find what makes me contented with my life.

I have contemplated a whole lot about ending my stay here on earth but there is one thing that stops me from attempting itโˆ’HOPE.

The hope that this is just a part of my life and not the whole of it.

The hope that one day things will be better than it is now.

The hope that one special day I will look in the mirror and tell myself “Look at you now. You have gone through many obstacles but you are now the winner.”

The hope that one day there will be less heartbreaks and more heartfelt sweet moments.

I am still positive.

Positive that one day I can tell the world that I had my own share of hardships larger than anyone will ever think of and that I am still there sharing all of it.

I am sorry for the sad entry. I am not feeling well but I also want everyone to know that I am still here, struggling but fighting.

WOLM #27

Why?

This is the question I usually ask myself.

Why do I have to end up like this?

Why do I have to endure more than her/them?

Why did I choose to be here than far away from it?

Why do I get into these kind of situations?

Why.

At the end of the day I never really find the answers to these questions.

I forget it and when time comes I ask it again to myself and like before I fail to answer the questions.

I am tired of asking these questions.

I am unhappy when I have to ask these questions to myself.

I want it to stop it already.

I haven’t had time for blogging,it saddens me. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Right now, I actually have no idea what to write. My mind is blank and I am simply free writing. I have so many in my mind for an idea and I have a review that I should start writing about. I guess I did not enjoy reading the book and I am trying my best to squeeze out anything out of my mind but I guess I shouldn’t pressure myself to trying my best to do so.

I hope to be able to write good. I want to be better but I feel so dumb when it comes to vocabulary or even writing in English. I do not have enough skills to be the best but I do know I can enhance it but I feel I am not worth that much.

I am mumbling now. I am sorry,reader. My mind is full of so many thoughts and I want to write it down but now that I am it all disappeared.

’til next post (hopefully a happier one,well written and composed.)

Social Media Update :) (L blogs #9)

hey everyone!

This post is going to be short and , hopefully , sweet (?) (haha)

I have gone back to using facebook for about a week now and I created a fb page for this blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

and here it is : https://www.facebook.com/L-Chronicles-200266057007452/

If you want to be the first to know when my next blog post will be just like that page. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have blocked myself from using facebook for almost 2 years now because it affected me and my daily life. Need I say addiction that later on turned into depression? There was so many dramas caused by using that social media platform and I had to step away from it and recuperate from such bad vibes it was giving me and my heart. I decided to go back for the sake of this page, to be honest. I want to expand my audience and most people told me to make a facebook page and now I am trying out their advice. I hope it is effective ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you get connected with me on facebook. ๐Ÿ˜€

OH PS. Tonight, a review of a book I read is gonna be published again on Bookbed. I hope you also have time to read it. As usual I will be posting an unedited version of said review and the link to the bookbed article. ๐Ÿ˜€

Another bookbed contribution (L blogs #8)

hey everyone!

It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend for me and my emotions last weekend and it’s a mixture of guilt, failure, and giddy excitement.

I do not want to further tell you a personal topic involving someone else and posting it for public eyes to read but let’s just say ‘lil ol’ Lucille had a major slip-up on scheduling last Saturday. I’m still not over it and I am still angry at myself for such a big mistake. I hope to get over it and move on soon. I did all I could to rescue the situation but it is now out of my hands when it will be okay.

I still think telling it to someone made our plans unlucky.

Note to self:ย Never tell anything about your life to him anymore. I Think some voodoo brazilian magick is happening and it’s bringing you badluck in your life ย goals and plans.

The excited feeling came on Sunday night. I was slightly positive for a good 12hrs after I saw this post. I actually knew that it will be out that day but I guess I really wanted to share it with my friends ย and ย family. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I’m talking about my first bookbed.org short story contribution.

Again another streak of badluck is upon me. My tablet’s web browser isn’t cooperating with wordpress and I can’t seem to paste the url of the post on this blog post. ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“

I will be sharing the original unedited/raw version of the said story on my next scribbles blog together with the URL of the posted story at bookbed.org.

For now, I will now bid you goodbye because I’m startingย to get annoyed with how WordPress and my tab are not friends.

See you tomorrow,
