They said He’s not Good Enough for Me

It is so twisted how people can easily tell you that you are undeserving of love. Since when did love become exclusive? Since when did people become undeserving of love?

“Uyab mo? Dapat nangita sad kag imong katimbang oy.” (You’re in a relationship with him? You should’ve chosen someone in the same level as you.)

When you say Metropolitan Manila, there are quite a lot of romantic places to choose from. There is Ilocos Sur (Vigan, Pagudpud, and Laoag). There are Zambales, Batangas, Baguio, Sagada, Cavite, and Tagaytay. At first, I was really hooked up with Ilocos Sur. Unfortunately, Ilocos Sur is 10 to 12 hours away from Manila by bus, and that is just impractical given that I only have 6 days in Manila for this celebration.
