We all go through heartbreak at some point in our lives. There are times when we think that we won't be able to get up and pick up the pieces. But somehow in the end we always do and in the process become stronger and better persons. I saw this poem in the internet and was reminded of days when I was feeling the same way. I just wanted to share it with you guys. A certain Jenna wrote it.

A Broken Heart by Jenna

How do I mend a broken heart?
My entire world has fallen apart.
How do I find hope in a brand new day,
when the one I love has gone away?
My mind overflows with memories of you,
of all that we've shared, all that we knew.
I long for your touch and your warm embrace,
the look in your eyes, the smile on your face.
My dreams are filled with your soft gentle kiss,
I wake and cry for all that I miss.
How do I mend a broken heart,
when my one true love and I are apart?
My heart knows to love only you, it won't let go, what do I do?
Our moments together were precious and few,
but I cherished them all more than you knew.
I love you my angel and always will,
I loved you then and I love you still.

Falling in Love with Animal Prints

Last week I was browsing ebay looking for a new blouse and chanced upon this cheetah animal print blouse that screamed buy me. I must admit that my fashion sense is more on the classic side and loud prints are a no no. But this one was different. I liked the color and the sheer fabric. It's so feminine. I bought it and wore it to lunch with my best friend and paired it with skinny jeans. I didn't wear the usual dangling earrings I'm used to wearing but instead wore simple stud earrings. I even bought matching bangles to go with it. Now I'm thinking of buying another one, this time with leopard print. What can I say, I really am falling in love with animal prints!

My Coffee Haven: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

My best friend and I had our monthly pigging out trips yesterday and went to the Newport Mall at the Resorts World Manila. We ate lunch at The Red Crab and had our dessert at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I seldom drink coffee but when I do, I always make it a point to go to CBTL. Other people are crazy about Starbucks but I prefer CBTL. The branch at the Newport Mall is rather small but it has that cozy ambiance which I really like. I'm even thinking of going there regularly and bring my laptop so I can work there instead of here at home. Plus, it's not very crowded so we were able to choose where we want to sit. As usual I ordered my favorite Original Mocha ice blended coffee with whipped cream and Guiltless Chocolate Delight Cake while Jenny had Double Chocolate Latte and Cappuccino Sansrival.

How about you guys, which cafe or coffee shop do you like going to?

Guiltless Chocolate Delight Cake

Enjoying CBTL's relaxing atmosphere

Bye Whitney

When I saw the news about Whitney Houston's death this morning on Yahoo News I was really shocked, that I began texting my friends. It just seems so surreal to me because she was just 48 years old and she could have shared more of her voice and talent for many more years. I must say that she has been one of my favorite singers of all time. I was in college when The Bodyguard came out. I even saw the movie twice. That's how much of a fan I was. How her life turned out is really sad and shows that drugs can destroy a person. I just wish that she was able to turn her life around for all of us to enjoy more of her music. Regardless, I will definitely remember her. I know for a fact that her music will live on forever.
