I just didn't have anything to wear anymore actually.

This is me as a harajuku-meets-highschool-girl.

Hindi ko na napost sa facebook ang huling limang hiling ko sa birthday ko. Pero ilagay ko na rin dito kahit tapos na ang birthday ko.

24. Bonding time with my brothers and sisters, I miss them very much.
25. My Japanese friends visit me here in the Philippines or I visit them again
26. An artwork from my friends, that would be a great gift
27. to be remembered on my birthday

Natuwa ako pagbukas ko ng facebook nung hapon na nung birthday ko, nagulat akong merong 100 wallpost messages na bumabati sa birthday ko. nakakatuwa hindi ko akalain na may makakaalala sa akin ng ganun. Niloloko ko si Olive sabi ko, "kasi celebrity na ako" haha. Kahit mababaw man, masarap pa rin maalala... kahit na meron sanang isang tao na masarap makitang magpost ng happy birthday sa wall ko kaso di na pwede. Matuwa na lang tayo sa lahat ng nakaalala.

What made me smile and melted my heart was Paul's Poem. Xempre. Alam kong galing sa puso yun at ineffort talaga. Naiyak ako. Tears of joy xempre. Ramdam na ramdam ko how proud Paul of who I have become. And I'm glad, he loves me platonically and constantly. Aint that great? To be unforgotten and valued. Thanks, Paul.

Then as I open my inbox, my heart melted more by Shinya's short message, I know how hard it is for him to speak in English kaya mas nakakatouch.... He left me a short message but it moved me so much. The message said:



"Happy birthday! Your smile made us very happy. So you should go back to Japan. haha."
- Shinya, Yuhei, Kazu

I never thought my smile would make anyone happy. With my Japanese boys, I felt special effortlessly. I didn't have to act 'cool', talk smart or try to be poised. They just like me with my clumsy giggles, funny remarks and my innate sensibilities and aesthetics.

The surprise I never expected was seeing Olive again, kala ko di na ako makakanood ng 500 Days of Summer. I love that movie I swear!! I felt like Summer right from the start... and I remember someone to be my "Tom". Then it made me realize why I liked him... It's bittersweet but it made me realize the things we go through dealing with relationships.

This bday has been different. I felt I'm dealing with my older self. Different, it's great.
