About veraparrocha

I am a dreamer. I may be a goddess, but i ain't superwoman. :) i eat a lot. i love stars...laminating films, papers, pens, markers, chalks, pillows, BOOKS and anything Korean... i love bags and shoes and weddings... i am loud and shy... stupid and witty... snobbish and friendly... hardworking and lazy... i... frown and smile... cry and laugh... love and hate... i am practically a little of everything!

Slip Away

In a world that’s full of strangers, they had reasons to divide us.
I kept trying just to be with you. And the most I was fearing, losing my path from you, happened.
Still, I’ll always remember those precious times with you.

Singing My Heart Out

Better in Time
Leona Lewis

It’s been the longest winter without you,
I didn’t know where to turn to.
See, somehow I can’t forget you,
After all that we’ve been through.

Going, coming… thought I heard a knock
Who’s there? No one
Thinking that I deserve it
Now I realize that I really didn’t know,

If you didn’t notice, you mean everything.
Quickly I’m learning to love again,
All I know is, I’m gon’ be okay

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too, ooh yeah
(It’ll all get better in time)
And even though I really love you,
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to
It’ll all get better in time

I couldn’t turn on the TV,
Without something that’ll remind me
Was it all that easy
To just put aside your feelings?
If I’m dreaming, don’t wanna lie,
Hurt my feelings

But that’s the path
I believe in,
And I know time will heal it
If you didn’t notice, well
You mean everything.
Quickly I’m learning (oooh) to love again,
All I know is I’m gon’ be okay

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too, ooh yeah
(It’ll all get better in time)
And even though I really love you,
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to, ooooooh
It’ll all get better in time

Since there’s no more you and me (no more you and me)
It’s time I let you go so I can be free
And live my life how it should be. (and I know, and I know)
No matter how hard it is,
I’ll be fine without you, Yes I will.

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too ohhhh
It’ll all get better in time ooooh
And even though I really love you
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to (yes I do)
It’ll all get better in time, woah

Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too, yeahh
It’ll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to

Assuming Lang Si Ako

The Bro: Hi! Did you do something to your hair?
Me: Sorry. I didn’t comb my hair. Hehehe.
The Bro: No. It looks good.
Me: Yeah. Haha.
The Bro: No, I’m serious. You look great. I rarely give compliments but when I do, I mean it. Oh, by the way, do you know what day is it tomorrow?
Kid: Tomorrow’s Chinese New Year.
The Bro: No, stup*d. Chinese New Year is on the 31st.
Me: Tomorrow’s the day before Chinese New Year. Hahaha.
The Bro: Yeah! Do you have anything you want for Chinese New Year?
Kid: She wants a “non-fat” pizza.
The Bro: Really? Calzone has. So we’re having dinner tomorrow. Would you like to join us?
Me: Haha. Kid, homework?
Kid: [whispering] I can’t believe he said a compliment!

No Frills. Just Love.

No frills.

I am still hurting.

But I think this break-up is doing me some good…
Well, besides the lady mustache…Don’t I look gorgeous?! LOL!

Pain

Seven years,
six months,
ten days.

I am bitter.
I am insecure.
I am depressed.
I know I am still hurting.

New House. New Responsibilities.

Today marks my second week in this new house. From our humble abode in Keuangan (in Cilandak), we now live in a much bigger house near Permata Hijau.

The night I arrived back from the Philippines, I already felt the stress of unpacking. Everything I have is still inside tightly sealed boxes. I was so tired from my flight that I decided to sleep right after arriving. But as it turned out, I stood up from the bed for 4 times to search for my towel, clothes to wear for work, toiletries, and blanket before I finally got to sleep straight.

The house itself is beautiful. Really big and very spacious. I have a bigger room now (Yay!). But as of right now, that is the only thing nice about this new home. Bigger house means bigger electricity bill. Longer distance from work means shorter sleeping time. New place means unfamiliarity with the area. I just wish I’m a little more adventurous. I admit I’m still afraid of getting lost around this big city.

Oh well, maybe I just need a little more time to get used to this new place. For now, I still have a lot of unpacking and tidying up to do.

The Magna Cum Laude

The Magna Cum Laude

I really feel bad that I can’t go home to the Philippines tomorrow. It would have been a great time to be with the family because tomorrow our baby girl will be graduating from college.

I remember you telling Mama that I was your favorite sister even if I am cranky most of the time. So before I sleep, let me tell the whole world how proud I am of you. Forgive me for letting the whole world know how intelligent you are.

VERGELLE ALQUEZA PARROCHA, 22 years old.
Salutatorian, St. Mary’s College, QC. Batch 2004
High Honors, Philippine Science High School, Diliman. Batch 2008

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at the University of the Philippines, Diliman.
Oblation Scholar (Top 50 in the UPCAT).
DOST Scholar.
Petron Scholar.
Executive Officer for Academic Affairs – UP Academic League of Chemical Engineering Students
MAGNA CUM LAUDE.

Gel, you’ve got the whole package. Beauty and brains, they say. But what I love most about you is that you have the heart. You have a big heart for everyone. You are always ready to help. In everything you do, you don’t just use your head, your heart always plays a part and you never forget to enjoy the moment.
You are God-fearing. And it’s funny how you would ask us to pray for you because you don’t like praying to God just to ask favors.
Chemical Engineering was not a joke and I have seen you in your down days of being a student. But you made it through with much diligence that you absolutely deserve all the honors that you received and will be receiving. I know you know how proud we are of you.
I love you. Be very beautiful tomorrow. Enjoy your graduation. Congratulations. :) -Ate Chi

Just A Break From A Long Hiatus

and so i’m back…from outer space (outside of cyberspace, i mean).

i had an awesome christmas season with the family and friends. as expected, savings went down the drain. lol. but, of course, i couldn’t complain as i just had the greatest time of my life yet. i was able to meet different groups of friends; went to calapan, puerto galera, and zambales with the family; had a nightly coffee bonding with my sisters; partied with childhood friends; attended countless christmas parties; and had a new BIG puppy!

holidays went by so fast (was that really a 36-day holiday?) and i’m back in jakarta in a blink of an eye. as per usual, leaving home was difficult and i just had a sudden homesickness attack last night. but what can i do? i just have to look at the perks of being here like having too much free time to finish a drama in 3-days and update this blog as often as i can. lol. also, i have june to look forward to again as hun is booked for his visit for our 7th year anniversary <3. yay for love.

The Superwoman

If you weren’t born on a day like today sometime during the 1950s, many of us won’t be where we are now. Your siblings, your children, even your siblings’ children, you’ve raised all of us well. You’ve been through a lot but you never gave up. It’s one of the things you unconsciously taught us.

I know you’re very much fulfilled already. Maybe not with money, but you are blessed with lots of people who love you, appreciate you, and need you.You might be adding another year to your age but with all the love and happiness you feel everyday, you are aging gracefully. You are still the most beautiful mom in the world.

With everything you’ve endured being a mother, a breadwinner, a military spouse, you are definitely our only superwoman. I love you to infinity and beyond!

Happy Birthday, Mama!

Happy Birthday, Mama!
