MIXTAPE

Ours were the words that you hint
Ours were the times we don't think
Ours were the tracks that we sing
Ours were the love that we bring.

Ours were our voices in sync
Ours were the moments we don't blink
Ours were the love songs recorded
Ours were the lyrics embedded.

Ours wasn't love letters in form
Ours were expressed in love songs
Ours were raw recorded tracks
Ours were our voices healing the cracks.

Ours were the songs exchanged
Ours were the melodies played
Ours were the rhythm of the tracks
Ours was the love we can't get back.

Ours was a mixtape like no other
You sent me a song with your cover
Your voice sent shivers in my heart
And that's how our love set us apart.

Story behind the poem:
I always had a weak spot for singers or musicians and at the time, I didn't even know that this guy I was seeing could sing nor play all those instruments. He surprised me by asking for my email address and sent me his own version of two love songs. That was how it all began. I sent him back my song covers. I put my guards down. I fell inlove. I found out he was a jerk. End of story.

Our love letters were in the form of love songs we covered and the sweetness of it is a memory I'll cherish forever.

He.

He who came.
He I can't blame.
He made my heart go insane.

He who dared.
He who shared.
He whose soul made mine flare.

He who sings.
He was so keen.
He provided that magical feeling.

He who pines.
He who shared his time.
He whose charm is oh so divine.

He who lied.
He never can decide. 
He always knew how to defy.

He who promised.
He who vanished.
He whose heart is extremely savage.

He who I loved.
He came from above.
He stole my heart with a violent shove.

Travel Diary: HongKong Disneyland


Disclaimer: Photos are owned by the blogger unless stated otherwise.

Music to my eyes. ;)

Because good 'ole Disney had to have its own MTR.

Mickey handrails!!!! Forgive the blurry photo, the train kept moving. Haha.

And Mickey windows, of course!!!

They had these little statues of the Disney characters inside, only got to take ones of Goofy and Chip and Dale. :)

Off to happiness we go!!! Sorry, didn't mean to capture the cute kid picking her nose. Hahaha.

HELLO CHILDHOOD!!!!

Mickey skimboarding above the black whale. Life = made.

Here's a better view of Mickey above the whale, clearly enjoying himself while Donald (right side) is feeling angry and utterly unhappy.

Welcome to my childhood, baby!

That caption before entering though: "Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy." They practically described the notions in my head. Haha. 

Main Street, USA in search for food.

Food before fun. Haha. 

I'm a Disney freakin' Princess!

Look at those two adorable kiddo's!

Minnie and Mickey trying to give me a smoochie. Too bad their noses got in the way! Haha.

Thanks for the childhood, my loves!


I'm a pixie!

Hey there Woody! Watcha doin'?




The green army men!!!!! How awesome is that?!

These totem poles are hella scary! They are equipped with motion sensors so when you stand in the center, they blow off water and steam.

Yummy cutesy Minnie ice cream bar! It matches with my pink chipped off nails. Haha.

The pretty Disney Princesses! Too bad we were too late.

Awful lighting. The sun was ready to set by this time. 

Photo grabbed from Ate Reyna.
Here's a filter edited shot I grabbed from one of my travel buddies.
Last photo op with Tinkerbell before leaving my happy place.

Travel Diary: Lost in HongKong

Disclaimer: Photos are owned by the blogger unless stated otherwise.

HongKong's Victoria Harbour at night.

Arrived HongKong a little after 8pm so by the time we got to see 1881 Heritage, it was already closed. Boo-freakin-hooooo.

Mirror selfie the next day. My bejeweled bunny sneakers are ready for another walk-athon in HongKong.

Lucky for us, we got to book a hotel near Nathan Road. All the sights are just a walking distance. We are just a couple of minutes away from iSquare.


On the quest to find a decent breakfast.

Found this local fast-food place somewhere along the walks. The name of the joint is in Chinese so forgive the lack of info. We ordered the English breakfast. So much for local cuisine! Haha. I had me some bacon, yummy eggs, toast and hot milk tea (that I did not drink). Blegh.

Taking the MTR to Shim Tsa Tsui Station.

You got it! More walking. Tsk.

On our way to the Avenue of Stars.

Entrance to the Avenue of Stars. Sooooo many people.






Walk, walk fashion baby. Hahaha.
Photo grabbed from Ate Reyna.







RED CARPET!!!
A lovely day view of Victoria Harbour.


I'll manually keep the reel rolling, baby. ;)

Aaaaand ACTION! 

Is it just me or is the camera man filming the director?

Hey hey hey Mr. Cameraman, that is not a great angle! Haha.

Photo grabbed from Ate Reyna. :)
Okay. We're ready for the next take Mr. Director! 

Probably the only three stars in the Avenue that I know of.

Oh hey there Jet Li!

We bought our tickets at one of the shops in the Avenue so no waiting in line for us. Thank goodness! I chose the Jessie ticket of course! We even got free bag tags and got to request which character we wanted. I had to take my boyfie Mickey with me. 

Last photo op before we leave the harbour.

Found this little cutie on our rest stop before we leave for Disneyland (see next travel diary).
