China Love

January’s Hong Kong trip was bittersweet.

It was a great bonding time with family. My now four year old niece celebrated her birthday in Disneyland.

It was also on this trip when Raft3r’s car was stolen.

I was torn between having fun and sulking.

Life is really about choices.

On this trip, I chose to be happy and decided to face the problem upon returning to Manila.

Boy, was it a struggle. Still I forged ahead.

My other niece noticed I did not smile in all of the photographs taken on the trip. I told her I was just tired.

I even took my family to a day trip in Macau and acted as their tour guide.

Travel is a good form of escapism.

I never wanted to return home and have reality kick me in the ass.

i like it when reality kicks me LOL bittersweet din. pero siguro ganun talaga when we have something to divert our attention we can sail through pero pag nawala na, ayun disgrasya na ulit LOL

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, Hehe. Tama ka dyan!

the donG said...

a mix feeling of being happy yet also loosing something. kung minsan ganito ata talaga ang buhay

Raft3r said...

the dong, Yin and Yang. Ika nga. Hehe

gillboard said...

pero kelangan umuwi at bumalik sa reality...

okay lang yan. madaming dahilan para ngumiti...

laieesha said...

at least you made an effort to have fun for your niece, despite knowing what was waiting for you back home...

ok lang yan... like i said before, kotse lang yan! replaceable... i totalled my car, so in a way, it was "stolen" from me too (kasi di ko naman talaga kasalanan eh!) and i thought of it as a perfect time and excuse to get another, better car! so it's blessing in disguise.

cheer up love...

Raft3r said...

gillboard, Hehe. Tama ka dyan.

laieesha, Iba ka talaga! Hehe.

Andy said...

Karma yan kasi you're having too much fun with your life. Kaya ayan, binigyan ka ni Jesus ng extra challenge to make things a little interesting. Heheh

Raft3r said...

andy, Nyahaha. Di naman ganon kasaya buhay ko. Hehe

Tim said...

Life is made up of highs and lows. Except for a select few. We are not one of those people. LOL.

Raft3r said...

tim, I wouldn't have it any other way. Hehe

hoshi said...

okay balic-balic sa topic -
"My other niece noticed I did not smile in all of the photographs taken on the trip. I told her I was just tired."
naks- nadama ko raw ang pighati sa iyong puso. pang Kapuso telebabad yan pero totoong na-e-experience natin.

yung kailangan mong magpanggap na masaya para wag mag-spread ng creamy sadness.

Raft3r said...

hoshi, Ok ba si Tim? Hehe

Wendy said...

I hear you. Sometimes life can be a pain. But at the end of the day, it was just a car. Marami ka pang kikitain na pera in the near future. Wag mo kasing ubusin kay Janet Jackson ang pera mo. LOL

Raft3r said...

wendy, Nyahaha. Magagalit si misis kung di ko sya susuportahan. Hehe

Raft3r said...

random student, Hay. Buhay talaga, ano?

hitokirihoshi_kawaii said...

Raft3r said...

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Kasi parang nananakot ka. Hehe

bestfriend said...

Don't worry bestfriend, sabi nga lahat daw ng nawawala may kapalit. Cheer up time to buy a new car

Raft3r said...

bestfriend, Promise? May kapalit? Hehe. Sana Mini Cooper. Nyahaha

Raft3r said...

RaYe said...

Raft3r said...

raYe, Sana may magbigay sakin. Nyahaha

Anonymous said...

Raft3r said...

Liz said...

Bittersweet nga. But remember a car can be replaced but those precious memories can't be replaced. :) By now I'm sure you've recovered.

Have a great week!

Raft3r said...

liz, Ganda naman ng sinabi mo!

eden said...

"On this trip, I chose to be happy and decided to face the problem upon returning to Manila.", I agree with you and I think that was the best thing you did. I remember a saying that whenever bad things happen, there will be always good things coming.

Raft3r said...

eden, Hehe. Sana nga. Sana nga.

M said...

I couldn't agree more. Need one right now.

Raft3r said...

m, Halika. Baguio tayo!
