THANK GOD IT IS TUESDAY

My day isn’t over just yet but I am so soo grateful that today is a Tuesday and I get to be as creative as I want to be which includes blogging/ vlogging and doing a bunch of other stuff.

And I saw a photo of my baby Cheetos. Thank you, Jesus!

Yesterday the bestEST thing in the world happened to me while I was at a shoot- a couple of girls walked up to me asking if I was issaplease.

Thaaaaat’s meeeeee!

Turns out they were readers of issaplease and they had recognized me because of my blue hair.

To be recognized was never something I had wished for when I started blogging but it feels pretty damn amazing that that actually happened. I’m still pinching myself, wondering if someone paid them to pull my leg and over the moon in ecstasy. It actually happened!

 

Everything is/ was worth it, after all. i cry.

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
Enough money within her control to move out…
And rent a place of her own
even if she never wants to
or needs to…
Something perfect to wear if the employer
or date of her dreams wants to See Her in an hour…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …
A youth she’s content to leave behind….
A past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her Old Age….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .
A set of screwdrivers,
a cordless drill, and a black lace bra
One friend who always makes her laugh
And one Who lets her cry

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
A good piece of furniture not previously owned
by anyone else in her Family…
Eight matching plates,
wine glasses with stems,
And a recipe for a meal that will make
her guests feel Honored…
A feeling of control over her destiny

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
How to fall in love without losing herself..
HOW TO QUIT A JOB,
BREAK UP WITH A LOVER,
AND CONFRONT A FRIEND WITHOUT
RUINING THE FRIENDSHIP…
When to try harder…
And WHEN TO WALK AWAY

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
That she can’t change the length of her calves,
The width of her hips,
or the nature of her parents..
That her childhood may not have been perfect…
But it’s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…
How to live alone…
Even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Whom she can trust,
Whom she can’t,
And why she shouldn’t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Where to go
Be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…
Or a charming inn in the woods…
When her soul needs soothing

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
A month…
And a year…

I’m going to start investing on poetry-

Lang Leav, Tyler Knott Gregson, Christopher Poindexter and Leav’s horny boyfriend whom I can never remember

And one day, I will have my own book about all my heartbreaks, happiness and in betweens. 

But I never have in betweens. Lol. Or do i?

The Captions That Didn’t Make It On Issaplease

Did a shoot for an arcade, it was obviously fun despite the fact that I might be a little too old to be hanging out at an arcade to begin with. Figured I would have some fun with my awkward and candid photos…

Why? Because I make fun of myself waaaay too much, the world might as well hear it.

Kung mu pili gani ka kanang practical ha? Don’t choose something that you won’t use over and over again. If it helps you learn, the better. What good is it if it’s fun but it doesn’t teach you anything? (while wiping spit on baby brother’s side bang para mu pilit)

I will be giving away a bunch of prepaid cards on http://www.issaplease.com. If you came here to be informed, you’re at the wrong blog- I purely entertain on this one.

bye!

9

In 9 days, I will be a year older- I can only wish to say wiser & stronger but I think the right terms would be skeptical & guarded. Nothing wrong with that, I need to protect myself first above all now. This needs some getting used to.

When the 9th day comes, I wish to be sitting somewhere quietly & peacefully- like how I’ve always enjoyed celebrating my birthdays. I just want to listen to silence and maybe look at something beautiful.

 

Candles, surprises, gifts, lots of hugs and kisses, horror movies, pretty & peaceful things – yes

Cakes, cheap alcohol, tight and crowded spaces, people that I want to punch in the face – no

Dissecting The Horse + Commentaries

Horse is the seventh in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Horse include 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026…

The Five Elements of Horse is Fire (Huo), which symbolizes enthusiasm and energy. (so I’m water + fire. PERFECT!) The animal gives people an impression of independence and integrity. Its spirit is recognized to be the Chinese people’s ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves with passion and diligence.

Earthly Branch of Birth Year: Wu
Wu Xing (The Five Elements): Huo (Fire)
Yin Yang: Yang

Lucky Signs for People born in Horse Year:

Lucky Numbers: 2, 3, 7
Lucky Colors: brown, yellow, purple
Lucky Flowers: calla lily, jasmine, marigold (except, I hate flowers)
Lucky Directions: northeast, southwest and northwest

They always impress upon people with dynamic, zealous and generous image. Although endowed with many shinning points, they have to face the weaknesses in their characteristics.

  • Strengths
    Most have nice personalities, such as warm-hearted, upright and easygoing. Hence, they usually have a lot of friends flocking around them. Independence and endurance makes them more powerful, and they do not easily give up when in difficulties. Positive attitude leads to a brighter direction.
  • Weaknesses
    The love of spending seems to be the biggest problem since they must be financially well off to support their social activities and outlook. Besides, their frank attitude at times leads to letting out secret easily. Persistence is what they lack on the path of success(sometimes, not most.)

Love Compatibility of the Horse

  • Perfect Matches: Tiger, Sheep, Rabbit
    They are born to be a well-matched couple, sharing a lot in common.
  • Acceptable Matches: Dragon, Dog, Horse, Monkey
    Their life will be sweet and happy as long as one of them learns to be considerate, tolerant and understanding.
  • Complementary Match: Pig
    They are a complementary couple in characteristic and capability, and good partners in housework / business.
  • Intimate Friend: Snake
    They are not so much couple as intimate friends, enjoying the same value for fashion and art.
  • Avoid: Rat, Ox, Rooster
    They cannot understand and support each other.
The year of 2016 hold average fortune for people with Chinese zodiac sign Horse. They may get some achievement in career and wealth if they make plans in advance and work hard efficiently. They won’t encounter big problems in love and relationship (SO I MUST NOT BE A HORSE!). However, they are advised to pay more attention to their health condition. In contrast, they will witness a lucky year in 2017 (why later? why not now?). They may get promotion in career, accumulate more wealth and find soul mates, while they may also suffer from heath problem if they cannot maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Combined with the western 12 constellations, Horses’ characteristics tends to be more specific, such as self-disciplined Aries, ambitious Taurus, confident Gemini, cautious Cancer, tough Leo, prudent Virgo, graceful Libra, passionate Scorpio (apparently, passion is all I have), enthusiastic Sagittarius, aspirant Capricorn, generous Aquarius and insightful Pisces.
Apart from sharing some similar general personality traits, People born in the Year of Horse also subtly features different characteristics based on four blood types. People with type O are usually emotional facing the uncertain situation, but romantic in perusing the true love (and emotional, let us not forget!). Type A people are industrious and persistent, striving to fulfill every ambition, while quick temper makes themselves under great pressure. Those with type B are usually upright and warm-hearted, attracting a lot of friends around, who can be the powerful backup for them. And the type AB ones are wild and unruly in society; they are fond of taking risks to try everything new. Traveling far is what they often do.
Never really liked the Chinese, anyways. But there is some truth in the ching chong chang. I’m not racist. I AM CHINESE.
