Morning Coffee Reads (September 28, 2013)

I literally deleted the first 4 sentences I typed in. I’ve been gone for a while and haven’t written any MCR for the past weeks. The reason for that is…well, I’ve been busy. Like I always am. I never run out of things to do. Or at least that’s what I think. I have slaved my body into doing more and more and more work for the past weeks and I got what I deserved. A FLU. Yes, I got sick on the second day of the Private Selling Event (Round 2) which I later canceled because of the crazy downpour. I have learned to hate the weather because it kills businesses. That’s one thing you can’t control and what makes it so frustrating to deal with. I got sick for about 5 days. And I’m feeling a lot better now. All I had to do was REST. That was what my body was longing for. REST AND SLEEP. I also tried taking Berocca. I was a bit hesitant to continue it when I saw that it contains aspartame—that stuff isn’t good at all, I learned it from Prof. Yu in college! If it isn’t good, then WHY did they put it in the Berocca tablets?! Berocca is something I should’ve taken a long time ago. It has everything that I need to function. I lack a lot of vitamins in my body and after taking Berroca daily for 3 days, I felt that I had more energy—or at least that’s what I’d like to think Berocca did to my system. Anyway, I didn’t take it today because lately I’ve been getting headaches. It comes and goes. It’s weird. I’m assuming it’s from my intake of Berocca as it is the only thing I’ve incorporated in my diet. Has anyone of you ever experienced the same thing? If yes, let me know in the comments, please.

The last 2-3 days of this week was one of the most stressful period of my life. But I am glad I am so over that stage and back on my feet! This just goes to show that whatever they try to do to me, I will still keep on living the life that is planned for me and meant for me. No matter how many tactics they pull to ruin my name and my business altogether—it all just goes by. None of it will stay. In 100 years I will never ever see these people again. I refuse to waste another second trying to defend myself from people who see nothing but wrong in me. I don’t even have to defend myself. I have a lot to say, I do, really. But what for? I can curse them all I want, believe me I want to—but what for? There is no “starting anew” with these people. There just isn’t any more room for that. I am moving past all of this and I will try hard to forget I ever met them. I received a heartfelt email from a reader of mine with initals RL. She made me cry. I never thought someone could put the pieces of the puzzles together. I felt vindicated in her message. And that was enough for me. Thank you RL. You made things lighter somehow.

There are people you meet in life that pass by to teach you lessons, but not necessarily stay in your life forever. That’s something positive we can end this paragraph with.

Being a marketing graduate I always knew that whatever business you choose, you are bound to always have competitors. You cannot go crazy over the fact that someone does the same damn thing as you are. Unless you perhaps, patent an activity—then maybe so, you could even sue people for doing the same activity. Nobody stops for anybody. The business goes on. It’s just that some people choose to play dirty. This definitely belongs to “T” when you do SWOT/TOWS Analysis. You learn a lot with business courses.

Speaking of business courses, I have to call up UST tomorrow because they haven’t delivered my diploma yet! It’s been months! Perhaps it’s sitting at the office waiting for me to pick it up. I’ll find out in the morning. I also have to call the vet to find out the rest of the results from my dog Princess’ blood test. She’s been sick for 2 days now. Swollen tummy. First diagnosis was she couldn’t get all the feces out, but then she started vomiting. Took her back a day ago, and they told me she has an infection. Her WBC spiked for some reason. She is now taking antibiotics. She isn’t able to eat as much now because some of her teeth have fallen off. She is 11 years old. I still remember the day I took her home. I bought her from the newspaper ad I saw. I was really young and spent ALL my allowance of PHP5,500.00 to buy her. She made me the happiest. I’d rather see her live longer as an old dog that live with sickness. The vet is also not a place for me because I swear I can cry easily for animals. There was this cat right next to the operating table Princess was on and I was told that the cat had a heart disease. I WANTED TO BURST OUT IN TEARS. My heart was crushed. I don’t know why I have this connection with animals. Please pray for Princess. St. Francis of Assisi is real. Before I had 3 dogs who all had parvovirus—it’s one of the DEADLIEST. I spent all my money to buy medicine and treated them from home, and they eventually got well and are now beautiful grown dogs. I miss them. Haven’t seen them for so long. Mommy misses you Lacey, Foxy and Chichi!!! If you’re a long time reader, you will know where they are.

I was supposed to wash and disinfect my makeup brushes tonight but looks like that’s not gonna happen. I’ll wake up early to do that instead. I really HATE washing my makeup brushes. Seriously. I know I’m not the only one.


The last thing I wanna share to you is the punching bag I ordered and received 2 days ago!!! I bought it out of impulse because I watched JlovesMac’s Sexy Loser video and she had the same thing. See how implusive I can get?! Anyway it’s not a waste of money as I will be able to workout again, punch the heck outta that bag, release anger and stress, and basically have fun with it! I have 2 pairs of gloves now which I can finally use! Every once in a while I walk pass the punching bag and give it a few jabs. It’s really fun! It also doesn’t take up a lotta space as it stands on its own. Very nice. I got it for PHP5,500.00 on from the username “TorchMike” I am excited for all the other people who will be ordering it as well, I got lots of “I want to buy that too! Where did you get it?!” on IG, and believe me, I’m excited for you too! It’s such a fun activity. Anyone can do it.

Time flies, noh? September is ending. That was one quick month.

I hope my MCR wasn’t too heavy to deal with in the beginning. :) I appreciate everyone who believes in me. Expect more and more and more makeup workshops in the coming months. I will be flying all over the Philippines for this. Next destination for November is Cagayan de Oro! I am excited to travel once again.

This weekend I will be holding my workshop and the Private Selling Event in Cavite! Specifically Dasmarinas, and I can’t wait! If you need details for this you can text me at 09156218309.

That is all for today’s MCR, I hope you have a wonderful day!!!


  1. Glad you're back on your feet. Stay happy and spread POSITIVITY! Life is too short to be otherwise. You deserve whatever blessings you have right now. I'll share one of the messages that I live by...

    “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
    If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
    If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
    For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
    — Mother Teresa

    ...and if I'm right *teehee* YW. :)

  2. hi miss say!! i miss reading your MCR :) and finally it's back..
    hayy nako wag mo nalng po sila pansinin or intindihin.. di naman kasi sila kawalan sayo. di po ba? im so glad that di ka po nag papa-apekto sa kanila.

    "remember only god can judge us, forget the haters coz somebody loves us." from the song we cant stop by miley cyrus. i just wanna share it to you :)
    we, your supporters are here for you.. and we believed in you po. stay pretty miss say :)

  3. There's a purpose for that, and it is probably because of the grilling The Best Coffee Maker Reviewthat eliminates any toxins from your standard water before it begins preparing the java. I always used to think that coffee was a bit of a frustration.
