She was named after a flower. She loves Ireland and its people. She's my "little sister" although she's taller than me.
We've always been inseparable, we grew up staunch allies, treated each other more like sisters than first cousins. Our brothers are close but we are closer, we are each other's alter ego.
There's no secret between the two of us. Six years apart in age but I have always considered her as the only person I can trust my "soul" with.
We've been through a lot, experienced different things, explored different worlds but in the end, we only have each other to...
It was an ordinary November day. I woke with aching muscles, sore the night before from an hour high impact aerobic class. It has been months since I went to the gym and my muscles were stretched to the limit...
I woke very, very late, forced myself into a cold shower so that my senses could wake, grabbed the first thing I got in the closet, put on a faded Esprit jeans and an uninteresting blue top.I put on some powder and lipstick and off I dashed to work.

Thoughts of a Blogger
Everyone has a blog these days...it has replaced the diary and the journal as a venue for random thoughts. The youth especially, has made it into their way of life. Although I'm not as young as I used to be, blogging also "hooked" me.
In my high school, I wrote in my diary everyday about mundane things. I also have a habit of conjuring poems in my mind and transfer it in paper. In college, I kept a journal. As a career girl, I also continued writing. Writing down my thoughts for the day gave me an outlet and has become my therapy each time I feel despondent on some occassions.
To my Juan and only
If I could compose a melody,
this will be our song
I only have the words from my head
and the meaning coming from my soul...
Your voice in a distance, so pure and
My day will be in a trance, just knowing
you are there...
Soon, we will meet and our hearts
I do think of beautiful tomorrows
that we will share...
A destiny fulfilled
A dream that came true
Just because of you.
