Biro ng Tadhana

Paano mo nga ba makikita ang isang taong hindi mo naman hinahanap?                                  O di kaya mahahanap ang isang taong ayaw naman magpakita?                                                 Paano mo nga ba malalaman kung talagang may nakalaan para sayo?                               Kung sa tinagal tagal mo nang naghihintay eh wala pa ring nagmamay-ari ng puso mo?

Kay dami mong pagmamahal sa puso pero di alam kung sinong pagbibigyan.              Minsan ba’y naiisip mo kung may tao bang darating para ikaw ay mahalin man lang. Pero gaano mo man pakaisipin, dasalin at sambitin,                                                            Minsan tadhana’y tila ba mailap at ayaw kayong pagtagpuin.

Ilang taon, buwan, araw at mga oras na ang lumipas                                                                Pero tila ba nagbabadyang wala paring liwanag ang bukas                                                    Ikaw ba ay patuloy na aasa kahit na ikaw ay lubos ng nagtataka                                    Kakapit ka pa rin ba sa paniniwalang may isang taong sa’yo ay ibibigay N’ya?

July 28, 2016 – ALDUB-MaiChard Experience, It’s all worth it!

My MaiChard Heart will forever be grateful to you @AldenRichards02 & @mainedcm and to July 28, 2016.

July 28, 2016, Eat Bulaga at Broadway Centrum – So far my most unforgettable experience in my fangirling life.

I slept at 1:30 in the morning, after I watched Direk Pat on Periscope while nakikipagkulitan with Direk at sa mga gising na ALDUB-MAICHARD Nation, literally I  had a hard time sleeping because I was so excited being in broadway today to watch Eat Bulaga live on its #ALDUB54thWeeksary then I woke up 3:30 in the morning, started to prepare cause we have to leave Batangas by 5:30 to head to Broadway Centrum, and because we were all excited and we’ve waited two months for this, we didn’t want to be stuck in traffic. Early bird kami, we were a group of 10, I was with my Wedding Coordination Team.

Waited for quite a long time on the queue, we were seated apart, located on the top-most right and center. We even sat on the stairs just to have a better view of what’s happening on the stage.

We even had our group’s  banner hoping that Alden and Maine could notice or our other Dabarkads especially Ms. A.

ADMC WPC

Having that situation, I almost lost hope that I could still find a way to meet Alden and Maine up close to personally give my gift and letter to them. After the show, I asked one of Eat Bulaga’s crew if I could talk to Direk Pat. (since she already noticed me in Periscope with my username @justmemajella I remembered saying, Direk pa groufie naman kami with you po. Please. Hehehe.)

There were a lot of people still on stage taking selfies with the That’s my Baes while I was waiting for Direk Pat to notice me so that I can handover my gift for Alden & Maine but I guess she was so busy with other concerns at the backstage and it took her a while, then I saw Alden going out of broadway through the audience exit. There were other girls in a state of shock upon seeing him too. As in natulala kaming lahat kasi di namin ineexpect na lalabas sya doon kasi a lot of people were waiting for them at the artist entrance. Para s’yang isang apparition “Mala may dumaang Anghel feels.” That was a very close encounter with Alden, he was already rushing to leave broadway with his entourage for his Perfume Collection launch in Market Market, since I already have that chance to give him my gift & letter for Maine and him I grabbed that opportunity.

When he heard me said, Alden, please take this, this gift is for Maine, he stopped, looked back, received the gift & the tarp and said “Ok po, ok po!” with a very gentle voice and all smiles on his face he then said “Thank you po.” Then he left. 😊 That happened so fast, less than 30 seconds I guess, but it will forever be etched in my 💙 No selfie, no picture just a beautiful memory. I’m so happy and overwhelmed, that you took it and have it given to Maine.

To my surprise, when I reached home around 6:30 in the evening, I saw several missed calls from @lindseyuritz and a tweet with this screenshots.

I had mixed emotions, I didn’t know what to do first, should I read the tweets, or call my cousin, or started blogging or should I watch Direk Pat’s periscope. Grabe as in nanginginig ako. Lost for words and thoughts, that’s what I felt pero super happy ako, as in tumatumbling ang MAICHARD heart ko.

This is the card I gave Maine, I took a picture of it before I wrote my letter to her and Alden, and the gift that I chose to give her is something that she can take for her “DINOSAUR”. I care about her, and most especially her concerns about her health. I hope this could help her much that it helped me and all the other women suffering from dinosaur problems every month.

Maine and Alden, you just don’t know how blessed I am to have the chance to see and look after you from afar. To meet you in person is already a bonus. For you to actually take my gift & read my letter is truly one of the best gifts you’ve given me. You are indeed one of my daily dose of happiness in this world full of trials and uncertainties. You are an inspiration, you made me believe in the goodness in people and that love and happiness are the most wonderful thing that we could share. You made me wait for my forever and believe that destiny truly happens.

I assure you that I will be supporting you both in your future endeavours. I will always pray for your happiness, for your safety and more so for your forever and smooth journey in life and career. I will always choose to fight for you and protect you and I will never get tired of shipping for what you know would be best for you.

I am still looking forward to have that chance to have a picture with you and that chance wherein you could sign the magazine where I have articles written about you and Eat Bulaga. I know our Tamang Panahon will come and will be patiently waiting for that moment.

I love you both. I’m @justmemajella, a Professional Wedding Planner, and I am GEMBSO. We call our FC ALDUB-MaiChard Wedding Planner and Coordinators cause that is what we truly are.

“Once in a lifetime” – A POV on Feels Like Home

“The mind may not remember a thing but the heart never forgets how it feels to be home.” -@justmeMajella

Slide1

When was the last time you actually engaged in the thought that you needed somebody in your life? When was the last time you did something for someone that felt so great? When was the last time you felt good about doing something that you never thought you could? When was the last time you listened to what your heart really feels? When was the last time you realized how important every minute of your life is?  I’ll leave all these questions to you.

I don’t even know how to start this blog about what I just finished reading from Wattpad. It’s actually my first time to write about what I read and give my POV.  I saw a tweet from my cousin @lindseyuritz at 1:03 AM of June 8, 2016, here it goes:

LY1

When it comes to fanfic she is my go-to person. We always share the stories we read, we even exchange opinions and we both enjoy our fangirling experiences together or apart. Twitter and Wattpad are our happy place and of course, RJ and Maine  are our happy pills.

So I tweeted her and said, Uy bago? and she replied : “just finished reading it now straight for almost 2 hours, ksma na singhot haha! Dko mtgil eh, it’s really good!” and I responded, “two hours ahh chapter 1 pa lang ako mamaya ko na lang kaya basahin baka di na ako makatulog.”

As I was reading  chapter 1 and still waiting na dalawin ako ng antok, coming from her, I know this is something really worth my time so I decided to continue reading, and true enough I can’t seem to force myself to stop reading the next chapter, and another one and another. When I reached chapter 8 I knew I have to get something so I went up from my bed grabbed a glass of water and got a box of kleenex, I knew all along I would be needing it; and I was right.

When it comes to family matters, friends, loved ones and romantic relationships- I always get emotional, I’m a self-confessed mababaw ang luha- iyakin sabi nga nila and a hopeless romantic. Even if it isn’t my story; even if it’s just a fiction – a movie, a soap, or a story that I read, surely I would cry, as to many tears that I can’t tell.

There comes a point in our lives, though we can’t totally understand from where the writers are coming from, we tend to feel the emotions they convey. I must say, the writer of Feels Like Home has an effective way of expressing her thoughts. She really delivered, and her style is something that many can somehow relate to – just like the other amazing writers from ADN that I admire. They all deserve to be appreciated even once in a while.

As I continued reading the remaining chapters I had felt all sorts of emotions; as if I was in the shoe of Maine or Richard and the other characters in the story. And by this time I can no longer contain my tears, so I just let it all out. I felt the emptiness, the anger, the discomfort, the betrayal, the longing and more so I felt their pain, their struggle as well as their aspiration for her to come back to life no matter how helpless they may be. I felt the genuine love, their immense happiness and renewed faith.

Being  alive  is something we usually don’t notice as an everyday miracle. Not until we realize that we could only be given a few more days to live. We see relationships as just part of our everyday lives not knowing how it could make or break us. Whenever we detach ourselves to what is real; when we choose to live a life away from our fears; when we turn our backs to our old selves; when we believe that we don’t need anyone, we actually forget how to truly live.

This story reminded me to not live a life full of regrets, what ifs and buts. It made me realize that we all have to cherish every moment, every memory and always try to make a good one. To forget about pride and insecurities, to learn to accept, move on and to forgive. To not lose hope and to love again. FLH also reminds us to believe that God has a hand in everything. He always has better plans, better than what we have dreamed of. He knows when to tap our shoulders to remind us that we are loved. He lets us know that we are not forgotten and we just need to have faith in Him and believe.

TRUST – a big word that not everyone knows how to give and not everyone deserves to be given but this story shown us that in life we need to trust God, others and our own selves.

FLH2

Feels Like Home is not just a nice story. It is a heartfelt, well-written, and not a typical story that I am fortunate I came across and took time to read. I hope this is not the last story you’ll write ItchyWittyFingers ( on twitter). Many of us are looking forward to read your works again. Thank you for sharing your talent. You are awe-inspiring!

Kudos to you and to all the other writers from ALDUB and MAICHARD Nation.                                I am so proud of all of you. Though some may not feel appreciated or noticed,                       always remember there is at least one who does. That’s me. 

P.S. Don’t hesitate to read it. Don’t forget to bring a glass of water and a hanky, tissue or towel if you have to and for more pleasant reading experience you can log on to Spotify, search for Love Affair (A Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack) playlist and put on loop the song Journey of Love. Enjoy reading everyone. Let’s all be happy and share love.

#MyLifeAt33

majellaine

Dear Majella,

Before this day ends I would like you to thank God for all the blessings He has been graciously giving you all these years. Remember to count your blessings and be grateful. Here’s a few. The gift of having a complete and happy family, supportive and loving parents and siblings. This is just so overwhelming. You should also be thankful for your relatives, best friends, friends, inspirations, mentors, colleagues in the event and wedding industry, clients-couples and debutantes who chose you to be their Event Planner, to your team, Gembso Angels, then and now and other people who has been part of your life.

Please also say thank you for the gift of life, for the many opportunities that come your way and for all the lessons God has thought you.

Now that you are already 33, choose to live a more positive life, take as step closer to your goals, do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true; to have a more meaningful life; to inspire more people to be better and to just be true to yourself.

Enjoy what this year offers you and embrace it with much excitement and appreciation.

Always bring positivity, spread love, good vibes and make others happy too.

Life is too short so make sure to live it to the fullest.

Always support what you love and choose what makes you happy.

Always give your best in everything that you do.

Remember, I am so proud of what you have become.

Lastly, May all your heart’s desires come true. I strongly believe and claim that your heart could still fall hard at 33.
Happy birthday my dear.

Love,

Self

#33RandomFactsAboutMe

I am turning thirty-three in a few days and I thought of writing 33 random facts about Me. I know others would agree, some would think again; love me or hate me but hey this is me. Just me!

I am turning thirty-three in a few days and I thought of writing 33 random facts about Me. I know others would agree, some would think again. Love me or hate me but hey this is me. Just me! 33

1. I believe in happily ever afters… and my favourite is the happily ever after that I’ll make…

2. I am a music lover, much that I want to sing I’d rather use mic on hosting, I am way better with it!

3. I take a lot of pictures but I don’t print it, memories are forever etched in my heart.

4.  I am fascinated to receive handwritten letters, cards, and DIY stuff. Things done with effort mean a lot to me.

5. I’d prefer to be seated on a passenger seat than to drive and die young. I love my life and I’d love to live longer.

6. When no one seems to listen, I just talk to my self and I am actually learning… sometimes it’s quite fun though, try it!

7. My greatest fear in life is to grow old alone. I may look like a superwoman but I also need my own superman who’ll always be there for me.

8. Someone told me, I should never give up on love for THE ONE will come to life in the most unexpected place and time. I believe her!

9. I want to see and travel the world with a man who’ll never get tired of holding my hand and will never let go.

10. I don’t ask for gifts but I do ask for prayers meant for my personal intensions, that is something I truly appreciate.

“Meng’s RICHARD”

You started by giving love in small increments that has such grandeur impact in our hearts. You only share bits and pieces of your private life to us, but all are heartfelt, all are real, all are true!

 

alden10

How can you show a girl that you like her? How can you let her know that she is special? How do you make her feel appreciated, needed and wanted? How can you profess your true intentions? How will you express that you love her? There so many ways that every man can think of but I believed Richard aka Alden has been showing us that he is not just an ordinary man standing in front the girl he loves and asking her to love him. What he does for Maine, his girl is just amazing! Jaw dropping, and brought everyone in awe and in tears out of so much joy and unexplainable intensity of kilig.

Richard, as I have said on my past tweets, you have raised the level of admiration and appreciation ladies have for men like you. You are now the standard, the ultimate man, the man in every girl’s dream, the man to look up to, the man of respect, honor, and courage. You are a man who values his words; who only shows his true self and his naked heart. You have surpassed what other men in the showbiz industry have done in the past. Simply because you are not showbiz; you do things your way. You want to make sure that you will not play with the feelings of the girl you love. You keep on reassuring her that you are sincere; that every word that you say comes from your heart and everything that you want her to feel is exactly how you wanted to express your thoughts, emotions and love.

Richard, you are such a gentleman, a man whom every girl can be proud of to introduce to her parents and siblings. You are a man who makes your girl feel that she will always be secured. You are a man who will move mountains, who will cross the boundaries, who will go against all odds just to get wherever she wants you to be. You are man who will fit 48 hours in a day just to make time.

You said, love for you is time; and when you give your time to a girl it means that you love her. You only did not give her your time, you gave her yourself, your heart, your mind and everything in between.

You have come to a point in your life when you realized that finally the right one comes at the right time. When you can now prioritize your own happiness over others. When you can now love and be loved in return something that you truly deserve.

Richard, you are such an amazing man. Though sometimes you were mostly misunderstood by many who doubted your intentions but you proved all of them wrong. You never retaliated their hurtful words and acts against you; rather you kept silent and just killed them with kindness. You just showed them that you are real, that everything you do is true, everything is authentic and genuinely yours.

I am so happy for you and for Maine, the right woman whom your mother has prayed for you. The woman God gave you. Every parent would wish to have you as his or her son, who would not wish to have you as their future son-in-law?

I am just so proud and I couldn’t get any happier with what has been happening in your lives right now. My heart is still in a state of shock and for others, their hearts might be in coma, but nonetheless our hearts are beating together as one for MAICHARD. I have been praying  a happy and smooth sailing journey to your forever

RICHARD FAULKERSON, JR. Ikaw Na! Ikaw na, ikaw na talaga! All your efforts are remarkable. Grabeng Grabe ka!  You’re the man every girl would wish for. We are not envious of NICOMAINE DEI MENDOZA, the girl who has your heart because we believe that she is not too good for you she is just the RIGHT ONE for you.

You started by giving love in small increments that has such grandeur impact in our hearts.  You only share bits and pieces of your private life to us, but all are heartfelt, all are real, all are true!

worth it

The only thing that we could ever wish for… the right time when you can finally introduce her as Mrs. Nicomaine Dei Mendoza-Faulkerson.

Dear Maine,

Just like any other ALDUB/MAICHARD fan, I want you to know that you have been making me look forward to every brand new day as I journey with you. You never fail to amaze me; ‘coz you take me by surprise every time. You captured my heart in ways that only you know how. The reasons why I love you, I can’t really explain; that’s pure love, an admiration and heartfelt appreciation from a fan. That is how precious you are (just in case you still don’t know) You’re like a little sister to me. Thank you for being my everyday dose of inspiration, happiness, good vibes and of course the unexplainable kilig! You and Richard have made me believe in destiny, the power of LOVE, FOREVER and TAMANG PANAHON. You have been touching so many lives. You have been an inspiration to mankind from all ages, from all walks of life, from different parts of the world. The two of you have made us realized how truly great and amazing is our God. Aldub – MaiChard Nation has been so blessed to have you both in our lives. We know we couldn’t be any luckier. You are one of the best surprises we got last year that made it an unforgettable one. In spite of all the challenges we encountered God gave you to us unexpectedly, to remind us that we must appreciate every blessings we have. We will always thank our good Lord for this precious gift. I know everyone would agree with me. You are God’s blessing to us, the best so far and we will be forever grateful for it!

I, together with the true Aldub – Maichard Nation is always praying to God for Him to graciously bless you and your family too. May all the saints and angels guide you and protect you all the time. May you always have healthy bodies, peaceful minds and loving happy hearts! Wherever this journey leads you, I will never get tired of supporting you and Richard. This is more than just a promise, it’s a vow, it’s my commitment to you.

Maine, you may not be able to meet every fan you have or at least get the chance to know all our names, but for us we will always remember how blessed and thankful we are to have you in our lives. Time may come when people might forget what you have done but always take note that no one will ever forget how you made us all feel loved, happier, appreciated and how you have inspired us to always radiate happiness, positivity and good vibes. Praying that you’ll continue to be a blessing to everyone and may you remain to have a generous humble heart and kind spirit in the coming years. Your life has changed in an instant but our lives have changed positively in more ways than you can imagine. I am praying that all the desires of your heart would come true and may you continue to live the dream that you have been dreaming of. You deserve only the best both in life and in love. I am so proud of you my dearest Maine, in everything that you do and everything that you are and Aldub you. Just enjoy life and all its wonderful surprises! Remember you are amazing and we appreciate having you just the way you are. Don’t ever doubt yourself because we believe in you. We got your back Meng. 

HappybdayMaine

Missing You Big Time

Good Friends

I so miss my friends…my best friends, my girl friends, my barkada, my cousins, to whom I can be just myself, those who treat me right, who care for my welfare, who accepts me for what I am, and those who won’t judge me because they respect me. I miss to be with people I am so comfortable with. I miss the times when all I have to do is sit beside you need not say a single word and i know that we understand each other and only our hearts speak. You may not be my sister by blood but i know we are indeed sisters by heart. I just wish you well, I always pray for your happiness and hoping that someday… we can still do the things we used to do, to hang out to have a good laugh, to dance and sing like no one’s watching, act silly and be crazy and to just be our own selves enjoying each other’s stories and presence.
