Dylan Sprouse Shares That He & Cole Are Working Together, Just Not In The Way You Think

cole-and-dylan-sprouse--1507216996-list-handheld-0

Dylan Sprouse and twin brother Cole Sprouse might not be working together on screen together at the moment, but that doesn’t mean they’re not working together at all.

“The misconception is that we don’t work together now, but we actually very much do, but in a very different way,” the 25-year-old actor shared in his new interview with MTV.

He continues, “Cole and I proofread and bounce ideas off each other 24/7. It doesn’t ever really stop, whether or not it’s an audition tape or tweet or reading my script and [him] telling me what you think of this character.”

Then again, Dylan isn’t opposed to working with Cole on screen again one day. As they’ve both stated before, it has to be a “really, really, really has to be a cool project.”

“It’s easy to stereotype twins into any role,” Dylan adds. “There’s not a lot of great twin roles written and often times when there are, they’re given to a single actor who green screens themselves into both places.

90’s Fashion Trends for Girls That Are Back In 2018

10-90s-Fashion-Trends-That-Are-Back-In-2017-ss.jpg

Let’s face it, In the 90s we did not have a sense of style, let alone being fashionistas. Our clothes were always our mother’s choice, and we would wear whatever she felt was cool and fashionable. It was all good, except they were not fashionable according to me. But, when you look at your throwback pictures and skim through the latest fashion diaries, you start to see a resemblance. Don’t you? It was not that bad after all. Sorry, mom! Once a memory, always a memory.

Some fashion trends are so relatable and nostalgic that you can pick it up from where you left. Yes, so the 90s fashion trends are slowly making a comeback. If you have not heard yet, it is the next big thing. But again, they have all got a makeover to match the current fashion scene. Anyway, brace yourself for a fashionable trip down the memory lane. You will love it, and you will learn (hopefully)!

90s Fashion Trends Female – 20 Outfit Ideas

 1. Leather Jackets Are Here To Stay

1.-Leather-Jackets-Are-Here-To-Stay.jpg

You know how much you can do with one well- fitted leather jacket? I know it is expensive, but with proper care, it can last you a few decades. Perhaps till the fashion fades and comes back for second innings? No, really! It also goes with almost anything and everything. That’s why this style has been there forever now and is also coming back in case you thought it is a passe.

2. Dungarees, Dearest!

2.-Dungarees-Dearest.jpg

Be it short or long, Dungarees if styled well are hottest pieces of clothing you can wear. Not just overalls, but stars like Bella Hadid are even bringing back those denim dresses, and they look sexier than ever. It did wane into the horizon a little, but it’s on its path to resurrection in the fashion world with a bang!

 3. Mommy Jeans Are Getting Out, And It’s About Time

3.-Mommy-Jeans-Are-Getting-Out-And-It’s-About-Time.jpg

The millennials are all sulking about this, and do not relate to the excitement around the revival of the mommy jeans, but we are glad and think it’s about time. Thanks to Britney and other pop stars, the mom jeans slowly disappeared from the nineties fashion wardrobe, malls, and brands. The style guides suddenly stopped mentioning these, and they became extinct. And, that’s why we have to explain what this is about now. Fine – they were just a pair of airy, comfortable, cotton denim pants that sat beautifully at the waist and were out near the thighs (unlike the painfully tight ones). There are a lot of variations, but this breathable pair of trousers is something we all need, and it’s time they were revived, at least as an option to some of us.

4. Round Glasses – A Radical Comeback

4.-Round-Glasses-A-Radical-Comeback.jpg

What was once considered goofy and nerdy, has now made a radical comeback. It first hit the sunglasses segment and is now a rage with prescription glasses too. If you want to slowly get into the 90s groove, without being too out there, then you should try the round glasses look. Plus, it’s a fad right now! You won’t stick out like a sore thumb, but you will get a thumbs up from the fashion police.

5. Denim Skirt – Thank God For Them

5.-Denim-Skirt-Thank-God-For-Them.jpg

Wow! The very sound of it makes me nostalgic. From the flower printed ones to the front slit, buttoned, A-line, distressed, midi and polka dots, we were spoilt for choice. One good thing with denim skirts was the fact that it would suit anyone irrespective of the age, personality or body type. I can’t remember what went wrong back then, but they were taken away just like that. But, we are just so thankful that these are coming back slowly but surely. So, if you’ve seen a denim skirt and are in two minds, just go for it already!

 6. Denim Jacket/Shirt – Can Never Get Enough Of It

6.-Denim-JacketShirt-Can-Never-Get-Enough-Of-It.jpg

If I ever make a list of essentials for a capsule wardrobe, the denim jacket will make it to the list. They were once considered dated, but they have been back for a while now. It goes with everything and anything, works perfectly for layering, and you can use it almost throughout the year. Sleeveless, waistcoat or full hands, you name it—each of them has a charm and style. A style we can never get enough of!

 7. Flannel Shirt – Proves What Goes Around, Comes Around

7.-Flannel-Shirt-Proves-What-Goes-Around-Comes-Around.jpg

From frayed jeans to flannel shirts they are all coming back in full circle. Turns out that fashion works in a two-decade cycle or something. Shirts that were considered a relic of the bygone era are now all over the place. You can wear these shirts either as a layer over a tank or just as a regular shirt, or maybe just tie it around the waist. Yes, tying it around the waist, is back in vogue too.

 8. Combat Boots, Wait They Are THE Doc Martens

8.-Combat-Boots-Wait-They-Are-THE-Doc-Martens.jpg

There was a time in fashion when men and women dressed up similarly, more like the fashion grunge movement. That’s how the heavy-duty combat boots started, and Doc Martens came into existence and swept the fashion world. You might relate to Doc Martens if you’re a millennial. Otherwise, you know what I mean when I say combat boots, don’t you? For a while, it felt a little ridiculous to wear boots with slip dresses, skirts, jeans and everything. But, trust me if you can carry it off the way it should be, you will look funky, stylish, chic and comfortable.

 9. Big/Loose Shirt – Makes Us Happy

9.-BigLoose-Shirt-Makes-Us-Happy.jpg

Over the last decade or so, it was a sin to wear anything loose. You are known to be stylish only when you wear clothes that are tight and body hugging. It was not the case if you rewind ten years, say the 90s. Loose shirts, boyfriend T-shirts were oh-so-comfortable and stylish. Cut to now; it’s an in thing again. Thank god this trend has made a comeback. How can I not wear them? How can we survive without these? Anyway, if this is your style, you don’t have to feel awkward or old school anymore, #because it makes us happy plus it’s NOW fashionable by all means.

 10. Chokers Have Taken Over

10.-Chokers-Have-Taken-Over.jpg

It started with Kendall, Kylie and Gigi sporting these chokers on Instagram; you refresh the feed, and the trend is back. That’s how quick the turnaround time was. And, of Course, I’m excited, aren’t you? You can practically pair them with anything. Velvet, lace, pearl, embellished, etc., your options are unlimited.

 11. Crop Tops – Never Go Back Again!

11.-Crop-Tops-Never-Go-Back-Again.jpg

Like they say fashion changes, but style endures. Trends come and go all the time; while we are glad some are gone, we are ecstatic that a few good ones are back. The crop top is one of those trends that found its way from where it started and this time it’s gotten better. Wear them with jeans, shorts, maxi skirts, tracks, and everything you can think of pairing them with. From the runway to everyday wearables, it is approved.

12. Matching Sets Are Today’s Monochromes

12.-Matching-Sets-Are-Today’s-Monochromes.jpg

A sleek style then, an elegant style now. They are replacing the crazy neons and patterned sets, but thank god those are gone anyway. With the matching sets, there is a lot you can do—matching crop top and skirt set, jacket and trouser, etc.

 13. High-Waist Jeans Are Up On The Shelves

13.-High-Waist-Jeans-Are-Up-On-The-Shelves.jpg

We all thought we grew out of the high-waist jeans once the low cut trend caught up. We agree that they were not the best looking pants and needed some overhaul. So it looks like someone heard—they are refurbished on par with today’s trends.

14. Backpacks Are Back

14.-Backpacks-Are-Back.jpg

When the 90s trend was initially picking up, it felt like a very temporary thing and a fad that will eventually fade. Surprisingly that’s not the case, and the designers are only expanding horizons. One such trend was the backpacks that felt so old school, but now brands like Chanel, Burberry, and many other big brands have signed up to this style. And, you should too.

15. Brown Lipstick Is For Everyone

15.-Brown-Lipstick-Is-For-Everyone.jpg

A lip color that sums up the nineties style statement in two words—goth and grunge! Thanks to the Kardashians for bringing the style back and this time it’s for everyone (unlike old times). It was considered inappropriate, unsuitable, dark or gothic to wear brown lipstick, but thanks to the K sisters for changing that. And, before we know big names signed up to release their version of the brown lipstick.

 16. Athleisure – Track Pants Have A New Name

16.-Athleisure-Track-Pants-Have-A-New-Name.jpg

I wonder, why we even went off the trend for a while? What is there to not like about these? They are comfortable, chic and easy breezy. But I get it; it is a thin line between comfort and sloppy dressing. Like everything else, there is a method to this madness too; and that’s why brands have launched track pants in so many variants, you cannot help but drool. This trend is back for good and is not going away this time. Don’t you worry!

 17. Printed Separates Found Their Way Into Fashion Again

17.-Printed-Separates-Found-Their-Way-Into-Fashion-Again.jpg

Printed separates were big in the 90s, and that seems to be the case now too. A lot of celebrities are seen sporting this style, and we should all take the lead. Whatyasay?

 18. Bob And Bangs Have Resurfaced

18.-Bob-And-Bangs-Have-Resurfaced.jpg

Bangs and Bob make us feel nostalgic because that’s one hairstyle that probably each of us had growing up.

 19. Neon Colors Are Not Retro Anymore

19.-Neon-Colors-Are-Not-Retro-Anymore.jpg

One more 90s fashion trend that is back after a hiatus and one that is not considered retro anymore. I mean, if you dress up in flashy neon colors from head to toe, yes. But, that’s why we take some style inspiration from our stars and learn to amp up outfits with neon accents. Boots, lipstick, top, tracks, shoes, etc. are cool opportunities.

 20. Caption/Bands T-Shirts Are Timeless

20.-CaptionBands-T-Shirts-Are-Timeless.jpg

Caption T-shirts are a rage like no other. No wonder then that even your favorite brands are banking on band names as well. They are back in vogue.

Model Watch: Chedi Gusay, Nobody Can Bring This Good Girl Down

c.jpg

The head-turner from Laguna is making her way to the top! From pageants to edorsements, Fil-Spanish Chariss Jedidiah Gusay or better known as Chedi Gusay proves that she got what it takes to be the next big thing.

She’s a consistent honor student as she valued education for she wants to be successful and when she wants it, she knows she’ll get it. Her eagerness and determination is her key towards achieving what she imagines. Growing up, she always wanted to be a model or a celebrity and we surely know that one day she’ll be it.

When she was a kid, she became a lead role in a musical play and since then music has become her passion. Then she joined several pageants and the fire in her starts to ignite, she always believe that there is a beauty queen inside of her which is why she is working hard to prove herself.

cc.jpg

She had won multiple titles such as Bb. Santa Cruz Laguna 2016, Miss Silka-Laguna 2016, Mutya ng Liliw 2017, Queen of Universities-Calabarzon 2017 and Miss Republic of the Philippines 2018. Now she’s into modeling and had several endorsements such as Boardwalk and Metrobank’s Yazz Card. We might see her at fashion shows as she is also a ramp model. She is also trying out acting as she appeared on some TV Shows in ABS-CBN. More than the glitz and the glam, there is a deeper reason as to why she’s doing all of it. She’s the bread winner of her family and she also has to  support her studies because her father was diagnosed with a kidney disease.

ccccccccccccc.jpg

But not all good things were happening as it came with a price, her strength was tested when she had an issue with some Kathniel fans when she start posting pictures of her and Teen King Daniel Padilla. Bashers all over her social media accounts starting to destroy and sent her hate messages, but she remained calm and silent as she knows that’s the best thing to do. Instead, she focuses more on organizing outreach programs to help the homeless and out of school youth. She conducts fund-raising to raise money so she and her colleagues can donate simple things such as school supplies. She also promotes fitness as she conducts Zumba sessions. She’s really a beauty with a purpose!

Right now, she’s into travelling. She says she love the beaches as it makes her heart and mind serene. She’s also into travel vlogging and does make-up tutorial so that she can share  the places she’s been to and be able to share her makeup tips. She also added, that she wants to inspire people to not be afraid of taking risks and to just take everything positively.

ccccccccccc.jpg

We asked her about her personal style and she say she’s experimental and loves to try new things. She’s innovative and expressive as she wants to grow and develop as time goes. Dogs are her best friend and even thou she got that perfect body she is still a foodie and loves to try new foods to every place she’s been in.

Fast forward today, Viva Films is ready to build another batch of stars that will be the lead stars of the upcoming movie “SQUAD GOALS”.

j.jpg
JULIAN TRONO 
#FLYBOI  
Julian Trono broke into showbiz in 2009 as a host in the values-oriented children’s show Tropang Potchi.    In 2010, he joined Party Pilipinas where he wowed audiences with his dance moves, earning him the title “Prince of the Dance Floor”.  Not one to limit himself, he tried out acting and appeared in several TV shows, such as Amaya (2011), Anna Karenina (2013), Niño (2014), Buena Familia (2015), and Dear Uge (2016).   In 2017, Julian played a significant role in Viva Films’ horror movie Ang Pagsanib Kay Leah Dela Cruz.  Not long after, he finally got his first leading role in the romantic comedy Fangirl, Fanboy, opposite Ella Cruz.  And while honing his craft as an actor, Julian was also enjoying being a recording artist under Viva Records.  His original songs include Balang Araw, Isang Tingin, and Tumalon.
This year, Julian has the pleasure of showing both his dancing and acting chops in the movie SQUAD GOALS  He plays Benj, an Engineering student who is a secret dance guru called “Young D”.  He wears a mask in his dance videos on YouTube to hide from his father who frowns upon this passion of his.  He took up Engineering to be able to help out in their family’s failing business.  As if juggling his studies and interest is not hard enough, Benj finds himself in some misadventures with his friends.  Will he be able to dance his way out of trouble?

VITTO MARQUEZ
#FITBOI
Vitto Marquez surprised his mother Alma Moreno when he told her his desire to join showbiz.  The actress described her son with Joey Marquez as “shy”, but she knew he’d build his confidence under the management of VIVA.  In 2016, Vitto auditioned for ABS-CBN’s boy group Hashtag, and a year later, he was officially launched as one of its members.  To this day, Vitto is seen regularly on It’s Showtime.
From the small screen, Vitto gets his first break in the big screen with the movie          SQUAD GOALS that’s coming out this summer.  He plays Tom, son of a retired basketball player and a model/actress.  He is an   HRM student and a varsity team captain who also happens to be a three-time MVP.  It is not surprising that he is hailed as the “It Guy” in the university.  But like a typical teen, he gets into various mischief with his friends.  Will he stay popular for the right things or be talked about for the wrong ones?

ANDREW MUHLACH
#FUNNYBOI
Andrew Muhlach pondered on joining showbiz when he was in high school.  The desire to entertain grew even stronger when he reached college, so he decided to pursue it even with his busy schedule in school.  His decision was fully supported by his family, especially his brother Aga Muhlach.  In 2016, he starred as the son of Herbert Bautista and Maricel Soriano in the movie Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin.  In 2017, he worked with Jack Reid for the first time in the horror flick Darkroom.
This year, Andrew aptly plays the role of a class clown by the name of Nat in SQUAD GOALS.  He is the best friend of Tom (Vitto Marquez).  He comes from a middle class family, with his father earning a living by driving for Uber while his mother is affiliated with a networking company.  Quick though he is in coming up with pranks, he is very slow when it comes to expressing his feelings for the girl he likes.  As he tries to figure out these matters of the heart, he engages in crazy antics with his friends.  But the consequences will prove to be no laughing matter.

dan.jpg

DAN HUSHCKA
#FUNKYBOI
Dan Huschka was first known as a member of a boy group “Sugar High” in 2013.  Singing was his reason for entering showbiz and his 14-year-old self once said that it’s what he’d want to do for the rest of his life.  The boy turned into a young man, and now this Filipino-German is also into acting.  In 2017, he was cast in Taddy Taddy Po, a family comedy on Sari Sari channel.
This year, Daniel widens his acting experience with the movie SQUAD GOALS.  He plays Hans, a shy type music genius who keeps getting gigs as a DJ.  In the process, his studies are taken for granted.  He has a set of friends, but he tries not to be attached to them as he knows he and his mom will go back to Germany anytime to see his father. This became exceptionally difficult to do when he met a girl who shares his musical interest.  In the midst of his personal issues and academic struggles, will Hans open up to his friends after all?

JACK REID
#FASTBOI
Jack Reid is on his third year in showbiz, and this Fil-Aussie has been working hard since to be recognized for his own capabilities and not just for being the youngest brother of James Reid.  In 2016, he was cast in the TV series Ang Panday and the game show Happy Truck Happinas.  Last year, he starred in the   horror flick Darkroom.  His good looks and fashion sense have scored him a clothing endorsement contract.
This Summer, Jack will surely have girls swooning over his character in SQUAD GOALS.  Jack plays Pads, a Mass Communication student who works part time as a bartender.  This makes him drowse off during class.  Born and raised in Australia, he is yet to speak Tagalog fluently.  He is tutored by a girl who seems to be the only one not affected by his charisma.  Pads lives with his older brother, but he has also found some cool “bruhs” in the university.  In times of adversity, to what extent can their brotherhood help him?

 

BUNGAL, MY TROUVAILLE

By: CHEWBACCA BOSS

30119055_1745280338866129_2066266140_n

Eight years ago, I met a young man who changed my life. He opened my eyes to a part of the world- a part of life- that I didn’t know existed.

This was the first time that I ever fell in love, and it was then, by far, the deepest. The frequency and intensity with which I felt, anything, was something I didn’t believe possible. I honestly didn’t know that a person could feel so incredibly happy and miserable at the same time.

Bungal would always sit in the same corner of Dok Adi’s house and he’d order his everlasting favorites – footlong, pancit canton and RC cola. What started on as a shameless bet (20 pesos) apropos his right age has led us both to journeying the briefest, yet happiest fate that the good Lord has ever given.

30120985_1745280335532796_331246583_n

Bungal was not my ideal man nor was I his dream girl. But destiny, as always, has its own diversion of playing games.

Our paths crossed during the most unannouced meetings. We knew each other because we had common friends, but we never were, and that we didn’t talk to each other either. We only get to see each other’s eyes while passing the school corridors and nothing more.

 It was about lunch time back in February 2011 and I decided to go to Dok Adi (a small canteen near our campus that catered cheap meals for students) and grab some lunch. There I saw Bungal seated somewhere near the table I was in. He was about to leave and someone from the ladies in the kitchen crew shouted, “Aba Bungal! Akalain mo nga naman at sa wakas ay ga graduate kana! Buti naman. Tumatanda kana eh!”

 And my gullible self boldly and randomnly asked to reconfirm the latter to him if that was true because he looked younger.

 He went near me and asked if I could bet 20 pesos to pay for his rc cola if it’s true. I called “game!” with confidence even when I only had eight (8) pesos in my pocket because I was certain I’m gonna win. He showed me his ID only to find out that he was 10 years older than me. I froze and remembered why curiosity killed the cat. He zoomed out laughing.

PS. I was able to pay the rc cola because I borrowed 20 from my best friend.

 Few hours after that awkward encounter  was the annoying sparks and signs. The beaming halo above his head and the raining petals and stars that flowed gradually everywhere… I have never really wished for any of those to happen, not for him (most particularly) but the heaven’s gate transpired for an unknown purpose we couldn’t understand then.

30120526_1745280435532786_1685972808_n

Bungal was carrying a bouquet of blue roses in his left arm and all the letters  I saw near the school gate were dancing to no tune. Everything began to move in a picturesque slow-motion.

30120488_1745280245532805_756653712_n.jpg

I looked around once more and the latter had turned black and white, and then they stopped moving at all. The only colored subject I could see was Bungal grinning ear to ear and walking gently toward me as if to pop my bubbles any moment and say something bad. “Oh. Ikaw nanaman?” Almost in chorus, we both said it to each other. I simply held my heart because it’s racing supersonic suddenly. It couldn’t be. With that bully? Hell Nooooo!!

30422070_1745280485532781_632422258_n.jpg

“Whahahaha happy Valentines emo girl!”  And everything  resumed apace to normal. I shook my head and looked straight to him, rolled my eyes as much as doable and ran swiftly toward the school’s gate.

 P.S. the bouquet of blue roses was not for me. He was to give it to a beautiful lady (who happened to be one of my closest friends) he’s been pursuing over the past years.

•••Few days before graduation•••

 I didn’t know where the time went but it all happened too soon. We were on our last days in school before graduation when Bungal approached me from nowhere. Our exchanged life stories began when I asked him to buy me a customized plastic ring just like his’ ( but with my ex’s name on it). Crazy. However, he ended up buying one for me instead.

30429914_1745280615532768_428136089_n.jpg

“Ligawan kaya kita. Payag kaba?” He said. I looked at him and laughed hard. Somehow I felt he’s offended because he sounded serious. I didn’t know how to respond so i raised my brow. “When do you plan to start? Tomorrow? Sige. Go ahead. Make sure to wear a formal attire and submit to me your resume before you ask me again that question aaaaaand let’s see if you’ll pass my qualifications or not. Bale bukas interview mo na. Kaya mo bang gawin?” I asked. He didn’t answer so I smirked and walked away.

 30184497_1745280642199432_630354312_n.jpg

The following day, there’s this only guy in semi-formal attire who walked in front of me and handed over his CV but didn’t say anything. I nearly had a heart attack. I couldn’t look at him straight because I didn’t know he’d take it seriously. Those few who saw us began to chat so I hid in one of the vacant classrooms to read the contents of what he gave me. Him, standing in the study mall and waiting patiently accross the room I went to; glancing from a distance. I waved so he’d follow. He was now seated in front of me as if we were really conducting a typical interview session. His CV read as follows:

Side note: I could not recall the right words pero prang ganyan yung thought

Name: Bungal

Purpose: To win the heart of a lovely girl I wish to pursue and be the reason for her smiles.

Skills: I can promise to love and protect you until forever’s gone

Status: Single and waiting for your answer

My heart and mind were on a battle but I chose to follow the former. My reasons were unclear but my heart was certain. My feet had forced me to get out of the room and search for the nearest convenience store. I realized that I’ve been hungry. Not for food though.

30429551_1745280328866130_1828919364_n

He was still following me. How and when did it all start? Thought I was gonna die right at that time. I asked myself and it took me forever to answer my own questions. I could be right. And i could be wrong. I didn’t find the right answers so I ended up buying fita crackers, tore it’s pack and gave him two pieces of biscuits as my answer. We both laughed and became the happiest people on earth since then.

 ♧♡♧♡♧♡♧♤♧♡♧♤♧♤♧♡♧♡♧

 Finding the right person, a person you want to spend your life with, is the greatest accomplishment one can achieve. Yet, the unfortunate truth is that the right person doesn’t always come at the right time. And that makes all the difference.

30120746_1745280422199454_1961060237_n

You’re not guaranteed to find the right person at the wrong time, but it can happen. You see, I am the living proof. I understand you may be thinking that if you met the right person, the person you loved with all your heart and soul, things would just work out the way you imagined them to be. Because we see it in all the movies. When boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. And then they live happily ever after, -background music- roll credits.

How wonderful it would be if the world was only that simple.

30120327_1745280385532791_850783533_n

In reality, human beings are emotionally complicated and because that’s a given case, we manage to make situations even more complicated. Let’s say you found the right person already, but you aren’t yet the right person you yourself need to be, then expect the worst case scenarios. Because your relationship will surely fail. This goes for the person you love as well.

30120811_1745280342199462_829997321_n.jpg

Bungal and I only had a 23-day relationship. It was probably the shortest, but it’s indeed the happiest and the purest I had then.

 What happened?

I could be right and I could be wrong.

I broke up with Bungal on our 23rd day because I realized that I was not yet ready. I loved him without doubt, but I got scared of my own insecurity. I was afraid that soon he’d leave me too because he admitted that he’s still in love with the “the blue roses” girl. I could not afford to get hurt anymore because I’ve been to a bad relationship before. And though he was sincere enough to have wanted to give our relationship a try, I cut him off already because I was afraid… I was afraid of all the possibilities that he might leave me soon too. I felt sad and guilty with my decision considering that he did nothing but to just make me feel happy… I saw how sad his eyes were the night we parted ways even when he was trying to show me that he’s just fine and that he’ll always be the man with a million watts of smile.

30422006_1745280518866111_987767514_n.jpg

“Kapag nalulungkot ka tingin kalang sa langit. Just look at the second star next to the right and straight on til’ morning.” – he said and grinned like nothing happened. I nodded.

 I went home, my world was spinning so i dived in my bed and burried my face on my pillow.

I.WAS.DEAD.WRONG.

I haven’t heard anything from Bungal since then.

30180741_1745280242199472_389430629_n (2).jpg

●●●(Never Knew I Needed by Ne-Yo- was playing as I type and search for the lines you’ll be reading next).●●●

There were many days then, when I wished I could turn back time.. I badly wanted to win him back.

A year has passed and I was still wondering how he had been, how everything had changed since then… Last I heard from a friend is that he’s working in a government office in Makati.

I, on the other hand was a regular employee and was working fine and dandy in prestigious car company in BGC when I received a call from a very good friend. He said that they need contractuals for the new department they’re opening for this particular government office in Makati…My chinky eyes grew wide in excitement (like a child eating candy with a surprise center) and I immediately said yes without thinking. To cut it short, I gave up my regular position for a contract project because i knew it’s gonna be a great opportunity that I’d finally be seeing Bungal again soon.

I swore to myself that this time, I’d be brave enough to take the risks just to win him back.

♧ELEVATOR CARS, OFFICE ENTRANCE, HALLWAYS and McDonald’s ♧

My heart skipped a bit the first time I saw Bungal again. He was standing in the elevator lane right next to me. It felt so surreal yet awkward.

“Hi.” He said. I felt coy to start a convo so I just smiled. We went to different floors.

“Hello jalibi. Ang kapal ng lipstik mo knina. Whahaha” -this message I read from my facebook’s inbox was way too far from what I was romanticizing to receive from him during our first encounter after a year passed. Though, funny enough to know that he missed me too.

 PPS. I don’t wear lipsticks. Fun fact is that my lips look red in the morning because I always bite them.

Can you guess how happy I was with our blossoming friendship this time? We dated and tried to work out what we’ve started before. That was what I thought at least. For the second time around, I felt the happiest girl on earth. I was getting used to seeing him everyday at work and going out on a date when we have chances. The risk was worth it. One touch was enough to bring back the stars in our hearts alive

Bungal and I were supposed to dine somewhere after shift. I wore my best dress that day and brushed my hair like 10 thousand times already. For some inexplicable reasons, he was silent and I felt bothered.

We were standing in the office entrance because it started to rain. I was searching for my umbrella when he spoke as if he’s almost whispering: “Faith. Tama na siguro to. Tigil na lang siguro natin to.” It didn’t register to me at first as if nsa talyer yung pick up ko…. “Bakit? Panong tigil? Anung.. meaning nun?” I asked him because he looked more anxious than I was. I felt he’s really sorry for me. For why, I didn’t know.

“May girlfriend na kasi ako. Sinagot nako ni Banana.” Sabi nya.

I chuckled. “Was that a joke?” I asked. Trying to fight back the tears that was betraying to fall anytime. He wobbled his head. And before he could utter another word, I stepped back. I looked at him for one last time and walked walked away. I suddenly found myself lost in the sea of people rushing to go home.

I honestly could not tell you what was heavier that night. My soaking wet dress, my unlimited tears or my broken heart. It could be all of the given… I didn’t care if people were staring at me because I got no umbrella or that because I was crying harder than the rain (as if I was gang raped by UFOs).

I won’t lie because it hurts more than anything and it has begun to ache in all parts of me. I knew he was really sorry because he isn’t the type of person who’d do something stupid just because he feels like doing so. Bungal is one of the few truest and kindest people i know. I knew he had his own reasons why he could not tell me. Maybe he was just confused. Maybe he was just torn. Maybe. Just maybe…

I grew tired of working. My contract was ending near.. I assumed perhaps, it happened for the best.

☆☆SIX YEARS LATER☆☆

 It seemed like nothing much has changed. Except for the fact that Bungal and I, somehow have gained weight. I was so excited to hear what he was up to and how he has been over the past six years.

 There’s so much stories to share and tell.

He was enjoying his mucho pint beer while I was watching my frozen lychee margarita defrosts.

7.jpg

I smiled because this is how we wanted us to be.

 He has began to share his back stories.

We talked about many things such as work, business, travels and his new love life. He said  he’s ready to settle down anytime soon. And I’m really glad to see that he’s grinning again after ages. So I shared a piece of my life to him too, being married for two wonderful years already.

Bungal and I have lived different lives now. We told each other openly about how things went beautifully yet separately.

 If I am to pick only one good memory out of the many things I won’t ever forget apropos what we’ve talked about that night, it would be the answer to my long lost questions. His confession.

 Letting a person you love go is perhaps the most difficult decision you can ever make in life. The worst part is that, the longer you are apart, the more you come to realize how much you actually love that person.

9.jpg

It has dawned on me that we were digging up once more our old wounds. The wounds we had thought were already healed over time. But they were not actually, until that night. It was scruciatingly beautiful in a way that the word “regret” in reality, is just a bitter-sweet life lesson.

 He said he’s happy seeing me happy and I to him, likewise. I wanted to cry but I tried to resist.  :’) I could no longer hug him unlike the sweet bygones. So we just laughed it all away.

We gave each other peace by freeing ourselves from what used to hurt us and made us feel somewhat, resentful.

 Now, I can finally put to close our last page

11.jpg

And though we are now journeying through different chapters of our lives apart, Bungal will always be my favorite book;  my accidental happily ever after. ♡☆

                                                                  -FIN-

🎵🎵

~For the way you changed my plans,

For being the perfect distraction~
For the way you took the idea that I have,
Of everything that I wanted to have,
And made me see there was something missing…. You’re the best thing I never knew I needed.. so when you were here, I had no idea~ You’re the best thing I never knew I needed, So now it’s so clear, I need you here always~🎵🎵

▪▪▪SA  NAKATADHANA NA SA KASALUKUYAN AT SA TADHANANG DARATING PALANG▪▪▪

I hope and pray you’ll have enough strength to keep going. Don’t give up just yet because you haven’t tried so far. Think about it. We may never know.

I believe we are all capable of handling rejections. But there is nothing, nothing more painful than to live life with what ifs. Don’t give up your love just yet. For love is the only purpose worth living for.

▪AT SA TADHANANG NAKALIPAS▪

Sabi nga nila, “Don,t cry because it’s sad but smile because it happened.” :’)

Always believe in big love because you’ve had it. :’)

Sometimes, the biggest and most loving move you can possibly make is to let each other go. Maybe we just ought to be grateful that we got to meet these people at all. That we got to love them. That we got to learn from them. That we got to have our lives expand and flourish as a result of having known them.

Meeting and letting go of the love of your life doesn’t have to be your life’s single greatest tragedy.

 If you let it, it can be your greatest blessing.

After all, some people never get to meet them at all. ❣

2018 Philippine Destinations for Millenial Travellers

Wondering where are the best places to visit in the Philippines this 2018?

Here’s a list of some of the finest and grandest destinations in our beautiful country:

1. 1

Jaybanga Rice Terraces in Lobo, Batangas—DOT Director Czarina Zara-Loyola says one need not travel six hours just to see amazing rice terraces. “The Rice Terraces in Barangay Jaybanga is one of the destinations the DOT is promoting as a must-see destination this year,” she said. While the rice terraces in Lobo may not be as far-reaching and as high as Banaue’s, or as old, it is still quite a breathtaking site. Built by hand by the locals, the mini-terraces are lush and green, and as soon as harvest time is near, it gives off a yellowish-gold glint from the ripening palay.

“Beyond the rice terraces, Lobo itself is a pleasant locale to explore,” Loyola added. “It has mangroves, the Ulupong waterfalls, and the Malagundi Coral Wall, which has attracted a number of divers because of its rich and diverse marine life.”

It’s takes about 3.5 hours to get to Barangay Jaybanga from Manila by private car (from SLEX take the San Jose/Ibaan toll road, then turn left going to Lipa). By bus, take the one going to the Batangas Pier and go down at the main bus terminal. From there, take a jeepney ride to Lobo. There are a number of resorts to stay in at Lobo , but if you have more days to spare, drop by the beach in San Juan first, hang out at a local resort, then proceed to Lobo the next day.

2.  2

Siargao, Surigao del Norte— Our travel experts were unanimous in recommending Siargao as one of the places to be in 2018. It used to be haven for local and a few international surfers, but since the increase in the number of carriers offering direct flights, the destination has attracted a diverse array of travelers longing for secluded white beaches, quiet spaces and a night life reminiscent of the early days of Boracay.

“There’s more to surfing in Siargao,” according to Charo Logarta Lagamon, director for corporate communications of Cebu Pacific. “While the ber months make Siargao any surfers’ paradise, the summer months make Siargao a haven for any beach-lover and nature-trippers with enchanting lagoons, caves, coral reefs and bizarre rock formations. Neighboring Guyam and Naked islands boasts of pristine white-sand beaches and great snorkeling; while the Magpupungko Tidal Pool has bizarre rock formations with a natural pool. It’s separated from the ocean by a large reef.”

Most of the accommodations are located in the municipality of General Luna, but there are other resorts and hotels that offer visitors enough privacy, but still being accessible to the main road.

Cebu Pacific flies six times a week between Manila and Siargao; and daily between Cebu and Siargao.

3.  3.jpg

Masbate—To a people of a certain generation, Masbate was once a place famous for its mythical flying monsters like the aswang. Unknown to many, the province was one of the first areas in the Philippines settled by Spanish colonizers. “People have forgotten that Masbate is rich in Spanish history,” according to Aileen Clemente, president of Rajah Travel Corp. “One of its most famous Spanish-era landmarks, for example, is the Aroroy Lighthouse in Bugui Point, which continues to stand to this day.”

There are also a number of heritage homes designed in the bahay na bato mold prevalent during the Spanish era, which can be found in the city proper (Villa Bayot where a Santo Entierro—the dead Christ—lies encased in glass), as well as in the municipality of Monreal, and on Ticao Island.

Now one of the main cattle raisers in the country, Masbate also hosts a rodeo festival every April, Clemente added. Aside from a parade of horses and cattle, dancers dressed in Western cowboy outfits strut down the main avenue, or participate in cattle wrestling contests. She also said the province is teeming with marine life—“it’s a good place for diving and see manta rays. It is on the migratory path for sea creatures.”

Homestays are available in Masbate, as well as in other islands, as there is only a smattering of adequate accommodations in the city proper.  CEB flies from Manila to Masbate once a day, and from Cebu, also once daily. (Pro tip: Flying from Manila to Masbate via Cebu is slightly cheaper, with many flights to Cebu to choose from.) Alternatively, you can take the Isarog bus that leaves from its Edsa or Araneta-Cubao terminals going to Masbate, with fares from P800 to P2,000+one way, depending on the bus type.

4.  4

Biri Rock Formations in Northern Samar—One of the destinations DOT is also promoting, the Biri rock formations, is one of those awe-inspiring tourist spots that are, unfortunately, still quite a distance to travel to. For now, only Philippine Airlines flies to Catarman, the capital of Northern Samar, from the Clark International Airport in Angeles, Pampanga (one flight every M-W-F-Su), and even then, one must ride a jeepney (to Lavezares town) then a boat to get to Biri Island.

There are also very few accommodations to stay in on the island, mostly bed and breakfasts, so we’re talking about raw and rustic here. (A few on the list are Glenda’s Bed and Breakfast, Villa Amor and Biri Resort.) But DOT Director Loyola promises that seeing the rock formations up close is worth the long trip. “Shaped by wind and waves, these massive rocks  are chiseled in different directions creating unique patterns and colorful designs,” she explained. These natural geological sculptures are to be found along the jagged coastline of this weather-beaten island.  She added the island itself is a good spot for diving and a tour of mangrove areas.

Other islands worth exploring in Northern Samar are San Antonio, with its magnificent white beaches, and Capul, which was once the last pitstop for Spanish galleons before making the long trip to Acapulco in Mexico. Capul is known for its centuries-old lighthouse and Capul Church, which was established by the Jesuit Order in the 16th century, according to Loyola. To get to these islands, take a van or jeepney from Catarman to Victoria (if you’re going to San Antonio), or to Allen (if going to Capul), then a boat to your end-destination.
