Date A Guy Who Buys You Ice Cream


I know, I know... The 'Date' or 'Don't Date A Guy Who' blog title is such a cliché. However, I haven't had my version, so let me be. Note that I wrote 'buys you ice cream' and not 'likes ice cream' because almost everyone likes to have some serving.

Me and my amazing beau are celebrating another milestone in our relationship and just like a much anticipated movie, this one's worth the wait. Anniversaries are always a good time to honor one's beloved - so here's some excerpt of love.

Date a guy who buys you ice cream. They're the one who knows how to cherish every flavor of life and appreciate each and every moment. They are always up for the surprise. They don't worry whether the new flavor is good or if it's worth the buck, all they wanted was to savor the experience. They buy you ice cream so you too can do the same.

Date a guy who buys you ice cream when your day didn't go as planned, and you get frustrated or upset, this guy just know how to soothe your aching head. They are most of the time calm, cool, and collected just like a tasty cup of ice cream.

Date a guy who buys you ice cream when you're mad, sad, or your hormones kicking in. They know you're just having a bad day and they're always willing to listen when you rant about work or life in general.

Date a guy who buys you ice cream even if you're not feeling blue. They know that diamonds aren't always a "girl's bestfriend," chocolates aren't so bad, and ice creams won't always make you fat. Nevertheless, if it does add a pound to your weight, they will still love you the same and support your next diet campaign.

Date a guy who buys you ice cream after long walks, hikes and rides, and especially when you're in the beach feeling the breeze. They have the same inner desire to travel and they know that the journey sometimes can be better than the destination. They love to sleep when alone, but when seated next to someone they love, the conversation won't cease no matter how bumpy the road is.

Date a guy who buys you ice cream, they will appreciate you for who you are and who you're not. You may have awful breakouts, bad hair days, flaws and all, but they'll buy you anyway. They're the ones who may look distant and cold, but when you let them in, they know how to warm your heart. When you're with them, time will freeze and everything seems pleasant. The taste of their company will always be better than any of your taste buds could try.

And when you finally found and dated one, be sure to buy them ice cream too, and never let them go.

7 Astounding Life Lessons I've Learned From Catherine, Called Birdy

Scoring two impressive children’s literature awards, this historical novel is without poverty of thought. Catherine, Called Birdy, written in diary format by Karen Cushman, bagged the Newbery Honor Book award in 1994 and also won the Golden Kite award in 1995.

(Just a quick trivia, a Newbery award is considered one of the most prestigious awards for children’s literature in the US. While a Golden Kite award is being given annually to recognize excellence in children’s literature.)

The author, Karen Cushman, is a historical fiction writer whose other novel, The Midwife’s Apprentice, also won the Newbery Medal for children’s literature. Karen Cushman has a bachelor’s degree in Greek and English; and a master’s degree in Human Behavior and Museum Studies.

This isn't a newly published book though, in fact it was first released way back in 1994. So, you might ask: why am I so fascinated with this old book and a children’s book in particular?

Well, this type of book wasn’t really on my …

Here Lies The Key To Saying NO For Your Own Good

"Don't let the good things in life rob you of the best things."  -Buster Rothman
How many times have we let ourselves be trapped on the dilemma in choosing between two or more good alternatives? I'm definite we all had those times. Although interestingly, there were those who have mastered the art of choosing what’s best.

But what is the best?

If it had been choosing between the good and the bad, obviously the answer will be somehow easy. Nevertheless, often that is not the case. Even if we’re to make even the simplest tasks, we are confronted and forced to make compromise time and again.

Most of the time we are confronted with either two or more alternatives that were not essentially bad, yet it can hinder us from doing what we're supposed to be doing instead!

How are we to deal in choosing what’s best when everything seems to be a good choice? Or how are we to arrange when deadlock with our commitments to our family, friends and bosses?

Thus, we frequently choos…

Why Leisurely Taking Your Breaks Will Benefit Your Health, Productivity and Success

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student, an employee, a freelancer or business owner, science says you should leisurely take a break if you want to increase your productivity and improve your health which will ultimately bring you more success in your work.

How To Tell If Freelancing Is Right For You?

For the past five years of my freelancing career I received more than a handful of questions about it from several professionals. Questions about how to do it, what things to consider, and if it's actually worth the risk.
Currently, I can say that it turned out just what I wanted it to be. It's awesome being my own boss, and being able to choose what I want to work on. I'm able to pay my bills, worked on flexible schedules, etcetera. I have no regrets taking the leap from the corporate world to being a nomadic freelancer.
But where I am now, as a freelancer, is the result of the prices I've paid because honestly, freelancing is not all about backpacking and chasing sunsets. Every (successful) freelancer has a story to tell about handwork, perseverance, determination, and sticking around despite of all the detours along the way.

So, here are some questions you may want to consider asking yourself before jumping in.


What is your why?

It's A Famous Resort In Zambales Now, Here's What La Paz Beach Looks Like 11 Years Ago

Forgive the low quality of my photos here, I took it using my cellular phone. This was year 2007, when we call it cellular phone, not smartphone, mobile, cellphone or phone. I was using a Sony Ericson W700 with just 2MP camera, I hope that explains it. And I guess this is a legit throwback post.

Just recently, I found out that the place is now more commonly called Crystal beach, mainly because of the popular beach resort located here which specifically has the name Crystal Beach Resort. And this same resort was where we stayed during our visit, but it's somewhat far from what it looked like before. It looks so serene and remote a decade ago; now it's still beautiful, but modernized. I'm not sure what's the best, but I think I'll still pick how it looked and felt ten years ago. By then, we just knew it by the name La Paz beach.


So the story goes this way...

There was no plan.

My sister and I together with some friends embarked on a road-trip without a concrete plan…
