My name starts with E... and M!

Earlier today, my teammate, Dimples, posted something on our team chatroom about the first letter of our names. I guess she was sleepy and bored kaya kung anu-ano na lang ang naisipan halungkatin sa net. This got the team pretty much interested kaya ang gulo ng chatroom namin today. Here's what I got:
If your name starts with E...
  • Your greatest need is to talk. If your date is not a good listener, you have trouble relating. (Trulala! Maybe that's why I always feel like the other person knows me soooo well, tapos ako parang limited edition lang ang alam ko sa kanya.)
  • A person must be intellectually stimulating or you are not interested sexually. (Interesting! This has some truth to it, kasi 'di ba, who would want to get involved with a peabrain? But then again... 'nough said, hehehe!) 
  • You need a friend for a lover and a companion. (Very much a requirement! I think it's pretty nice if you marry someone who'll be your lover and best friend.) 
  • You hate disharmony and disruption, but you do enjoy a good argument once in a while - it seems to stir things up. (Trulala! I love getting into arguments, but not really serious ones. And since I don't want other people keeping a grudge against me, I'd rather just give up and let 'em win.)
  • You flirt a lot, for the challenge is more important. But once you give your heart away, you are uncompromisingly loyal. (This is sooo true! I can't help but laugh at myself because of this! GirlBanat in the house, y'all. Ahahaha!Ü)
  • You will fall asleep with a good book. Sometimes, in fact, you prefer a good book to a lover. (To my boylet in College that I left waiting at one time for 5 hours and at another time for like 3 hours, now you know. Hihihi!Ü)
E for edzactly!

But then again, I'm a Maria too, and it says:
If your name starts with M...
  • You are emotional and intense. (Raaawrr! Intense you say?)
  • When involved in a relationship, you throw your entire being into it. (Sabi nga sa taas, I'm uncompromisingly loyal, and I give my all. True. It's you and me against the world, baby! char!)
  • Nothing stops you; there are no holds barred. (I say, let's get it on!)
  • You are all-consuming and rave someone who is equally passionate and intense. (Oh, it'll be sweet if I can find someone who's passion and intensity surpasses mine. Where art thou, Romeo?) 
  • You believe in total freedom. (That's why I live 187 miles away from home. Period.)
  • You are willing to try anything and everything. (We'll go through this life once and only once, why not try everything it has to offer?)
  • Your supply of energy is inexhaustible. (Happiness and energy, gooo! Kasi naman, kung matulog din ako, wagas! Hahaha!)
  • You also enjoy mothering your mate. (I do! I love kids and I wanna be a mom, kaya nagpa-practice lang. I think I'm gonna be a very good mom, pero very good wife? I'm not yet sure.)
  • You often have the greatest love affairs all by yourself, in your head. (Uhm, parang partially true lang s'ya for me. On second thought, who wouldn't want the greatest love affair ba kasi with Derek Ramsey? hahaha!)
  • You are very imaginative. (I am. Am I?)

My First Breath... Underwater!

Nothing beats the first time! Finally crossed out of my bucket list, I had the most amazing, unbelievable, blissful, ecstatic, rapturous, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, superbunggangbunggangtuwangtuwaako first SCUBA diving experience! I can't get over the fact that I really was there, breathing underwater and seeing and experiencing how it feels like to live in Ariel's world.Ü

I saw Sarah and Twinee's photos and videos of their first dive in Cebu, during our barkada trip that apparently I was not able to join in because I had to go home at that time (I would not have missed that opportunity to dive if I was there). I got sooo excited when Sarah planned out for us to dive in our long-anticipated Davao trip. I thought, "Finally, matutupad na ang pangarap kong maging little mermaid!" hahaha!Ü

I had fun during the dive, aside from already getting the hang of having to "equalize" every now and then so that my ears won't hurt while I was down there, it was really fun looking at the schools of fishes na dumadaan sa harap ko, others even nibbling my legs (feeling nila siguro chicharon ako, hehehe!Ü). I had a great time kasi I didn't feel nervous at all, knowing that it's a whole new world I'm discovering. Nakakatuwa kaya makita gumalaw yung giant clam! Akala ko kasi nung una hindi sila gumagalaw. Hehehe!Ü

Here's a quick video of my DavaoDive. Hindi na ako naka-complete diving outfit kasi this is technically my second dive, akala ko kasi hindi na ako papayagan mag-dive ulit kaya hindi ako prepared tuloy! My second plunge made me understand why there is a need for the wetsuit. Malamig pala talaga when you get into deeper parts of the sea.Ü
