I think I’m forever doomed to tiredness, since I'm definitely not going to bed tonight (it’s 5:07am, and I’ve had much too nice a night to sleep!) and I’m listening to Pocketbooks who are BRILLIANT and I’m defo going to Cambridge with the lovely Ella tomorrow (and I’m ever so very slightly tipsy still and cannot ever sleep until entirely sober) which means I’ll be a zombie on Monday again, yay!

Pocketbooks - Promises, Promises

Pocketbooks’ lyricism is unrelentingly beautiful. It is such a rare thing for a band to be able to conjure up such amazing imagery. Every time I listen to these songs it takes me back not just to the summer in which I discovered them but they also evoke memories of moments that perhaps I never even experienced. Their writing is just so… Not to mention that they are master popcrafters. 

“I pray on my knees for the sweetest release of the cold autumn months, if only I could share those autumn months with you.”

the hopeless romantic in me =)

Hello, Summer! Hello Boredom! Pero kahit almost 1 month na ako'ng tengga sa aming balur, ngayon ko lang napagtuunan ng pansin na ayusin ang bookshelves ko :DD At ayun, since most of my novels are currently ‘out-of-town’, ang natitira lang sa madami ko'ng collection ay ang mga 'Happy Endings’ books ko. 

            Presenting: My Tagalog Pocketbooks :DD

           

pinakalatest ko'ng nabili ay eto, THE  TASK FORCE KAPAYAPAAN by Camilla. Medyo matagal na silang out, reprint na nga lang to'ng nakita ko sa PHR store e. But nonetheless, this is a very, very good series of Miss Camilla. As in, ang cool kasi parang CSI and 24 combined in 1. Plus the todo-kilig infested love stories :)

      

Kung kanina yung latest, eto naman yung first ever series na nakumpleto ko :)) Stallion Riding Club nila Sonia Francesca & Sofia :) as in, sa kaadikan ko, pati yung latest ng Stallion Island ay meron ako :PP Kase naman, epitome to ng Happily Ever After stories, plus and times the Super hunk heroes :)  Sad to say, nung mga times na nagpapahiram ako, ilan sa mga titles ang di na naibalik -__- kaya, ayun .. ang dating almost complete ay kulang na ng 20 titles :(

         

At of course, ang pinakafavorite ko'ng author – si Miss Camilla! Ang cool ng stories, iba-iba e. Ang gaganda ng bawat isa. Thus, Miss Camilla izzo bait din. She managed to answer some tweets and messages through FB and Twitter. Cool =)) Just recently, meron na ako'ng 60Plus titles ni Miss Camilla :D

         Ayon, so super ayos pa niya today .. kasi nga kakaayos ko lang. But I doubt it kung magtatagal. HAHA =))            

                                                                     


Lost love is still love. It takes a different form, that’s all. You can’t see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those senses weaken, another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it. Life has to end, love doesn’t.
—  The Five People You Meet in Heaven (Mitch Albom)
ideal man, ideal woman...

from: Marikit Kong Mahal by Vanessa

kaya maraming nagiging matandang binata’t dalaga dahil sa salitang  'yan. kelangan ganito ang katangian niya, kelangan guwapo o kaya maganda siya, mayaman, may kotse at marami pang iba. minsan hindi na napapansin ang tunay na nararamdaman ng isang tao dahil dito. 

“Mahal ko sana siya pero hindi siya mayaman” naririnig ko lagi ang mga ganyang dialogue. minsan napapaisip ako ano ba talaga ang importante pagmamahal o pera? nagapakasal ka nga sa isang mayaman pero di mo naman mahal dahil lahat ng hinahanap mo ay nasa kanya.

love. pagmamahal. mahanap mo kaya yon sa ideal man mo? kalimutan na ang lista listahang ‘yan kung anong nararamdaman mo ipakita mo.

ito ang nakukuha ko sa kakabasa ng pocketbook.

I was a complete, total fangirl. There was none of the twilight and gossip girl crap back then. The 90’s is the best decade ever. Haha.

Anyways, rumor has it that Francine Pascal will release a sequel to the series called Sweet Valley Confidential. We’ll finally find out what happens to the famous blonde twins 10 years after SVH. Can’t wait! :D
