Crossing Continents

we agreed to dig and dig, down under where the worms and seeds sleep and sleep. for at the middle of this continental-crossing tunnel, we promise to fin’lly meet. let’s say pardon to the roots our shovels will step on. let’s say bye to the above earth we’ll forget as we move on. for we […]

The Picnic

after more than a decade of virtual hugs and late night chats, the four girlfriends have finally met again for a summer picnic. two married, one engaged, one still single, they’ve bonded because of one common denominator: a guy they played love with. a nerd from college who’s known for his ragged blue jeans and an old-day-smelling shirt. under the hot sun with […]

Between My Bleeding Lines’ Readers: Mah Lima

Note to Self There’s no point in looking outside for things you should have inside. It will only bring you harm. Don’t put your happiness in a stranger’s hand. No matter how long you’ve been with someone, unless you’re both open to it, you never really know them. And even when they are, you still […]

And my darling Jade of the ever-lovely blog named after her tagged me recently with The Rule of Eleven (aka The Blue Sky Tag). And because I consider her one of my bestest far-away-friends, I treat her tag as a friendship card which I have no choice by to accept and comply. (super smiling emoji because I am kidding. :D) So […]

Our stomach growls as our eyes take in the feast. Oh, it’s time to let our mouths be greased! Tongues relish the fireworks of spices– sweet […]

Hello, 2017! Miss You, Friends!

And so in between a hard-core editing session with my boss, I am writing this post after I visited some of you,  who are close, close, close to my heart, and I almost, almost cried because I miss everyone! I know I am nine days late but here’s to a lovely 2017 for everyone!!! 🙂 […]

Gift of Vow

We are like north and south, light and dark, sweet and sour, moon and sun. Until our opposite worlds were united by love, a relationship was made, inside God’s hands. A journey with rough patches, taught us acceptance and forgiveness. Through His words we’re blessed to be here. After fervent prayers, our life together is […]
