What Ifs, What Could Have Beens and I Wonders

While I didn't start dating until I was 13, my first heartbreak was when I was 11. My friends in Germany started dating around that age and I developed quite a crush on a boy named Fabian Horzetzky. My teacher at the time, who was also our resident matchmaker, did her best to make sure Fabi and I got to know each other better by making us seat mates and by asking me to tutor him in English.

Plus, after school, every day, without fail, my best friend and I would head to the park and meet up with Fabi and his best friend to roller-skate, after which our best friends would conveniently disappear and Fabi and I talked about Bayern Muenchen, music and life. Two weeks later, our best friends started dating, but Fabi? He never made a move.

That's when impatient-me decided to take matters into her own hands. If blatant crushing wasn't going to work, playing hard-to-get would. Or so I told myself. I pretended to have a huge crush on this other guy, Maxi, during our field trip and wrote his name with matching hearts on the palm of my hand to make Fabi jealous. "Maybe he'll worry he'll lose me and finally make a move," I told myself. Fabi pointed out my lame name-tattoo during lunch and since he looked devastated, I knew my plan was working.

Unfortunately, five hours later, my best friend ran into our field trip dorm room and told me the news: Fabi just asked Marion out because he said he knew he no longer stood a chance with me coz of Maxi. So, on our last night, I had to spend two hours in a dark room watching them make out and wipe their mouths clean of the ton of drool that they were creating whenever Fabi pulled himself off of her brace face to gasp for air.

I was an 11-year-old emotional masochist, but I never showed them I was bitter and hurt. I never told Fabi my crush on Maxi was a lie, either. That night, I cried myself to sleep and on Monday, I requested to be reseated and stopped tutoring Fabi. To this day, I hate wet kisses. I hate Marions. And I hate mind games.

So, kids, if you want something: Go for it. Say it. Act on it. Ask for it. If that something rejects you, at least you'll know that there was no chance and you'll never live with what ifs, what could have beens and I wonders.

2015 Movies that are Perfect for the New Gary at the Movies Viber Stickers

I've been using GMovies for about a month now, and I have to say it's one of the best ways to stay updated on current and upcoming movie releases in cinemas nationwide, check daily movie schedules, reserve good seats, and buy movie tickets straight from the convenience of my phone. No more phrases like "Let's Google it… Oh, wait… Signal is bad…", "I'm Googling, but the Internet is slow", or "The website doesn't seem to be updated." Do you feel me?

Globe Telecom's GMovies has just entered into a partnership with Power Plant Cinemas, so more users can experience the convenience of buying tickets and reserving seats on an app!

And, as mentioned in my Potato Night post, there are new FREE stickers ready for download on Viber, thanks to GMovies! And let's face it: which kuripot person doesn't get excited about Viber stickers? (I really want those Minions ones, though! Huhuhu.)

The stickers are called “Gary at the Movies”, introducing the new movie-loving toon character. You can also catch Gary making guest appearances at the Enjoy Globe Viber Public Chat!

Here are some upcoming movies for you to try GMovies with:

Inside Out - July 24, 2015
Laugh it up with the latest Pixar characters!

Paper Towns - July 24, 2015
John Green always hits us right in the heart.

Fantastic Four - August 7, 2015
Coz superhero movies are perfect date movies.

Sinister 2 - August 21, 2015
For the horror buffs.

Hitman: Agent 47 - August 21, 2015
For the action buffs.

Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens - December 17, 2015

Walang Forever - December 2015
And because Filipinos love hugot movies.

There are so many movies to look forward to lately and I haven't even seen Magic Mike XXL or Ant-Man yet. :( Huhuhu.

GoSURF50: Play Your Favorite Games Anytime, Anywhere!

If you are a gamer and a Globe user like me, then I've got some awesome news for youuuuu. XD You don't even have to be a hardcore gamer for this. If you're mildly addicted to Candy Crush or Clash of Clans, then you'd better read on, as well. ;)

Thanks to Globe Telecom, you can now take your digital lifestyle to the next level with FREE access to your favorite games. You just need to register to a GoSURF data plan. My current fave? GoSURF50.

By registering to GoSURF50, you can enjoy access to top mobile games like Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, Summoners War, Soul Seeker, Candy Crush Saga, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Hay Day, Dungeon Hunter 5, Brave Frontier, and Asphalt 8: Airborne on your mobile phone or tablet for 3 whole days.

Here's what I've been up to lately:

Building up my base in Clash of Clans.

Kicking ass in Candy Crush Soda Saga.

Trying out new games, like Summoneer's War.

Hihi. Add me up on Facebook, so we can play together! :D

GoSURF50 is available to Globe Prepaid, Postpaid, TM, and Tattoo customers for only Php50 and is valid for 3 days. With it, you will get 300MB of data that you can use to browse your favorite sites online and  an additional 400MB of free data to access your favorite games plus Spotify – anytime, anywhere.

This is perfect coz let's face it: which true Clash of Clan-er can survive a day without checking their base and participating in a Clan War? And which true Candy Crush-er can survive hours of traffic without crashing a few candies together? And which true Hay Day-er... okay, fine. I can survive a day without Hay Day. But it's still cute as hell. ;p

Globe is aware that mobile games are now part of everyone's digital lifestyle, so they have upgraded GoSURF50 to provide mobile and broadband customers the leisure of playing games on their devices without worrying about data allocation.

Did I mention that you can also access premium online content with it, such as Spotify, NBA, and HOOQ? Chyeah!

"The enhanced GoSURF50 is our response to the market’s constantly-growing appetite for digital content and the growing mobile gaming industry in the country. With more data allocation plus free access to premium online content such as games and more, GoSURF is your best companion to be always connected and entertained while on-the-go,” says Globe Vice President for Content Jil Go.

If you don't have enough load or simply forgot your portable Wi-Fi at home, you can also get GoSURF for as low as Php10 valid for 1 day with GoSURF10.

To know more or to keep updated about GoSURF, text GoSURF50 to 8888 or text "GoSURF FREE" to 8888 to get detailed information about the different freebies you can get with the promo. To know more or to keep updated about GoSURF50, visit or

Feeling School Girl

Before anything else, I'd like to point out that yes, I know these photos are blurry and of poor quality. They were taken by a 5-year-old indoors with very dim lighting, but I really wanna show off my shoes and don't know if I'll get a chance to do so after this what with the bipolar weather lately, so I hope you can forgive me. :p

Feeling school girl at City of Dreams' DreamPlay.

Yup. I totes just dumped these photos here. Sorry, but I'm about to watch Minions. Forgive me times two. :p BUT DROOL OVER MY JORDANS, PLEASE. Thanks. XD First pair, totally care.

Potato Night: Watch 'Minions' For Free This July 8!

Are you a fan of The Minions?

Okay. What a stupid question… Who isn't? :p

Well, I've got great news for you, fellow potato and banana lovers! You can watch the new movie this Wednesday, July 8, FOR FREE, thanks to GMovies! Of course, you're gonna have to follow these three easy steps, though:

Step One: Wear yellow. (Duh!)

This is pretty much a given. I may actually go all out and wear a jumper and glasses, too. But hey, as long as you're in yellow, that's good enough. Be as banana-yellow or as lime-yellow as you want. It's all potato.

If you go all Minion, though, you may snag a cool prize while you're there! ;)

Step Two: Download the GMovies app.

GMovies is available on both the Playstore and the Appstore, so no excuses!

Besides, you won't regret it. I promise you it will come in super handy in the future if you're a cinema or movie buff.

Step Three: Download the "Gary at the Movies" sticker pack on Viber.

Don't have Viber? Get on it!

I gotta admit I'm a bit late on the uptake myself coz I've been an iMessage advocate for so long, but I gotta say: annoying people and making pacute with stickers beats emojis any day. :p

So, it's a movie date on the 8th, then? The screening will be at 7pm in Glorietta Cinema 4. Registration starts at 3pm at the GMovies booth located at the Glorietta 4 cinema lobby, though, so come early! :) Only the first 250 people with all three requirements will get a ticket each! See you there! :D

For more details, keep tabs on GMovies' Facebook ( and website ( You can also follow them on Twitter at @GMoviesApp and on Instagram at @GMovies :)
