New Dreams, New Brews

Buko Salad Dreams will turn four in two months time. I couldn’t think of a decent metaphor to describe how fast time truly flies. It has been four years since the Korea trip. It has been four years since I finished college. It has been four years. And what has happened to me so far?

What happened in those four years–is something that’s only me and myself can know. But I tried. Believe me I tried. I tried to tell the whole world how beautiful life can be. Which led me to realizing that NOT living it to the fullest can be so fuckin devastating.

While I do not wish to leave Buko Salad Dreams for good (I swear I’m not saying goodbye — though the music I’m playin in the background while writing this sounds like the end of a movie), I am starting anew. It’s funny how this curious self of mine can only appreciate things in slow motion. Exactly 16 months ago, I have opened a whole new world called the Pinay Weekender, which I wholeheartedly destined to house my crazy, wary, wild thoughts.

Those four years were so colorful, the only thing to do now is to choose to live colorfully every single fuckin day. I have been off the grid for so long and it’s only lately when I got a firm grasp of the notion that indeed, WE ONLY LIVE ONCE. I do not promise any “cute but deep” stuff to post online. The only thing I wanted to do now is to LIVE COLORFULLY. And if you wish to know how I’m gonna do this or share your own experiences, then drop by at the Pinay Weekender.

Yes, unlimited coffee is on the house yo! *wink*
