Sunday Scribbles VII

RELATE FIVE MEMORABLE MOMENTS WITH A LOVED ONE
(PAST AND/OR PRESENT)
February 24, 2008

Kenny Rogers Proposal

The title says it all. I did what every young idiot, in love, would do: write a lengthy letter and then use it as means of professing my undying love to my bestfriend. That went well. Hahaha. Awkward for almost a year. Even the kada was affected as people took sides and whatevers. Very memorable as this is the first time I acted on this “love” matter. All this happened in Kenny Rogers. Not really the setting for those professing-your-undying-love moments. Haha!

Door Closing and another One Opens

A year after the first one, here I am still haven’t moved on. I distinctly remember isolating myself from my kada to avoid anymore awkwardness and to try to restore my dignity. It worked. After six months of going all hermit on them, her, particularly, I got messages from her saying where have I been and have I forgotten people. I said no. It’s just that I needed a time off from them to not really forget but to at least get over what I did. A year after, I tried one last time to ask for that one chance. Too late. The day before I got her message, she got hitched. Classic, right? Moments like this, who you gonna call? A girl I just met a week ago and started telling her some things and she comforted me. Hence, a door closed on me but another one wanted to let me in.

December 8, 2005

Just like in that song, “For once in my life I’ve got someone who needs me,” I was committed. Yes. Me. The Timmeister officially has a girlfriend on this day. You see, I love the number eight so if I’m taking this big step in my life, it would have to be on a day that I believe is important. I started planning the proposal for weeks but I never got it straightened out until days before that date. With only hours before December 8, I just bought this 100 pieces Hello Kitty puzzle and wrote 100 things I liked about her at the back, one thing per puzzle piece. It resulted fine as she did say yes to me. Hey, I would say yes to me too. Hahaha.

First Year Anniversary at Nurture Spa, Tagaytay

It’s my first 13th month paycheck and it was just in time for our first year anniversary. I decided that we should celebrate our first year together at Nature Spa at Tagaytay. Very momentous not because we’re together, but also because the services were really relaxing and the ambience really made it all perfect. I got a pedicure. Cool!

Coffee at Starbucks West Ave.

What I consider to be the best night of my life. One of my girl kada’s decided to celebrate her debut the traditional way in this Chinese restaurant at Quezon City. So there were escorts, pledges, roses, collared tops. After all the festivities, my bestfriend needed to kill time so I asked her to have coffee because there’s a Starbucks shop in front of the resto. I treated her coffee and we just hang there and exchanged stories, at least, until her dad came to pick her up. This is the first time, I think, she said yes to me. So even if she’s just being polite and she really just wanted some caffeine in her system that night, it became the most memorable night of Tim’s life.

I was thinking, since the title says “Loved Ones,” that we are free to choose our loved ones, so I started thinking about my family and my special moments with them. Then again, people will not waste time reading this entry if the answers are not juicy enough. So, what better way to make this very interesting to readers than to relate moments with girls that were, still is, part of me.

My proposal in Kenny Rogers and the door closing changed my life. Seriously. I used to be shy and not one bit interested in this whole world of romance. I was always happy being alone, still am. But, I never regretted anything. Not one moment. Be it a positive or a negative one.

Two important things before I conclude. I broke up with my girlfriend after a year and a half together. We just ain’t clickin’ like we used to. She got her priorities; I got mine. We co-exist better living separate lives anyway. We’re good, just so you know. And the other thing: my bestfriend is still my bestfriend. We got past all that awkwardness and my foolishness. We decided that we’re better off not being romantically involved. She has this really cool boyfriend and I’m very happy for them. Good stuff, right? Just like in the movies. Now, if only I can muster up the courage to make a move on this new “leading lady” that’s been a recurring special guest star in this show I call “my life.”
