When I stayed in Cebu for almost 3 months, the thing that I missed the most about MNL was having Ate Inday and my driver Kuya Gerry around. Chos! lolย .It was actually hard to live away from my family, aside from the obvious fact that I can’t do all of the chores that I have to deal with every day, commuting around Cebu was not easy at all. I spent my first week wishing that I should’ve listened to my Dad and brought Ate Inday with me to attend to my needs, but being the risk taker that I am and a person who wants to grow, I took the liberty of living independently (or so I’ve thought HAHA) and learn how to stand on my own.

It was a decision that I had to do to somehow ready myself and my family in my plan of taking a bite into a bigger apple in 2012. I remember crying myself to sleep cause I miss my family so much,most especially my Dad. There are days that I would want to go home and eat dinner with them,go out – watch a movie, come home late and be overwhelmed with another day well spent with the family. I have to put all of those behind for a while to let myself grow. I can’t fathom the idea of dealing with this again next year, so as early as now I am actually prepping myself emotionally.

My Dad sent me care packages while I was in Cebu. It would always leave me One of the things that is always in his care package isย tikoyย because he knows I love it so much! <3

I don’t get to go to the mall a lot since it’s far from where I am staying. My Dad knows me too well, he bought me clothes from Forever1 and had it sent to me right away.

I got so kilig when I opened my package!..and yes, I hug my stuff when I’m overly-joyed! :))

This is one of the sweetest care packages that he sent me! I swear I nearly cried in front of my friend when I opened it ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

He would always send me my favorites. ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

My Dad sent me this cutesy smokin’ buds from Skullcandy! Remember when he bought me my first skullcandy, I wanted to use it all day!

This was 3-4 years ago.This was the time when we had our father-daughter tampuhanย (minor disagreement).ย I went out that day to clear my head and shake off the bad vibes.When I got home, this was already waiting for me. It was the headphone that I wanted from Skullcandy, so it really touched my heart.

As a daughter,with or without this, things would still be okay between us. No matter what! He is my Dad and I will always be his baby girl.

My Dad is so fascinated with Skullcandy that he bought all of us a headphone ๐Ÿ™‚

My brother Renzo’s. Got stolen at his school. Boo

My Dad likes banapple, that’s his “go to” place when he feels like eating out.

I ordered this dark chocolate raspberry mousse cake for my Dad.

I really really loved it!! I got crazy with this and Spiral’s Opera!! Heaven sent on earth for sure!

My Dad loves munching on chocolates ๐Ÿ™‚ So I bought him a box of Galette’s signature chocolates.

Family <3 ๐Ÿ™‚

My heart is still full of joy. It has been almost 2 months since my Dad celebrated his birthday but the overwhelming feeling of seeing everybody happy can’t subside quickly! Hope it’ll last until 2012 ๐Ÿ™ Just the thought of missing his birthday next year puts me down already! ๐Ÿ™

I will forever be your Iaken Daddy!!!

Lots of love,
