Pong Tries Vlogging - Miron Bridge & Fox Cities Trestle - Friendship Trail

Vlogging? This is taken in Menasha, WI. Miron Bridge & Fox Cities Trestle - Friendship Trail. 
I do not have video editing skills. Haha! Just found this on my phone. Originally this is from my GP. So, this is me with Nicole braving the cold. It's -2.2C then. It was still a great experience seeing the river and it's all ice. I remember seeing two guys attempting to do some ice fishing but did not push through. Gosh, I miss WI! Yeah I can say it! Haha. Arte.

So, for the mean time, ito muna. Next time na yung montage and yung brightness man lang sana. Haha!

Pong Features: Milk Tea Alert! CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice 🥛🍷

Hello! Milk tea! Coco Milk Tea, finally! My first blog for my birth month is here! ♥

I have been addicted to Milk Tea and I've tried different Milk Tea Places already. Today, am featuring one of them - Coco Fresh Tea & Juice.

My Coco Milk Tea Fix, Megamall

Word of mouth is really powerful. I have learned about this tea thru Mikee. He said the long line is worth the wait. So, I checked Google to search where's the nearest CoCo! Back then, Coco - Megamall doesn't exist yet. So I had to wait. But when I had a staycation somewhere in Intramuros, my friend and I went to The Lucky Chinatown Mall (my first time) and to my surprise, CoCo has it's branch there! 😄 So, eventhough we already had a Large Milk Tea from another Milk Tea Place, my friend and I lined up to try CoCo. Indeed, the long line was worth the wait. Cravings solved! 😋

CoCo is very generous with their sinkers. Grabe! And their Large Cup looks like its really large. Haha! And it's really not that expensive. Your PHP100 is sulit! It's creamy as it has the perfect blend of cream, tea and sugar. Since  I wanted to experience CoCo, I did not adjust sugar levels at all. And even at 100%, you can still taste the tea flavor. See, nothings compromised! Sarap!

Honey Lemon w Aloe & 3 Buddies

When CoCo Megamall finally opened, went there around 10:15a and there are already people in queue. During that time, the person on the cashier is also the person mixing the drinks, so it's taking a while. But everyone is so patient - no one was pissed. Haha. Oh CoCo what did you do to us?!

Queue as early as 10:15a, Coco Milk Tea - Megamall

And yes - worth the long line, worth the wait, basta worth it! Go na, try na guys!

Pong Thoughts: Exes Baggage Movie Review 🙅

Hello! Mabuhay! Finally, a new post! Exes Baggage Movie Review. So, ano namang kayang hanash ko dito?! 😉

photo credits: black_sheepph IG Exes Baggage

This post, obviously, is about the movie Exes Baggage. Actors are Carlo Aquino and Angelica Panganiban. Mga batang 90s, relate na relate sa #Cargel. Di ba? Aminin! This is going to be in TagLish (Tagalog and English). This is a chill review. Let's start?!

First, I thought maiiyak talaga ko sa movie. I have my tissue ready na nga. Ito naman si Kuya sa harapan namin, sabi nya "Miss, wag mo sipain ung likod ng upuan!" Badtrip sya e. Sabi ko, "Ay hindi po ako yun, excuse me." So, sabi ko sa sarili ko isang saway pa nito, papatulan ko 'to, start na yung movie panira. Haha. So, mabalik tayo, so hindi ako naiyak, matured. Hindi lang naiyak, sign na ng maturity? Haha. No, I guess, steady na ang heart ko ngayon kaya ganon. Good sign. Pwede na ulit. Haha!  

So, just so you know, while typing, am listening to Maybe The Night - OST ng movie. Sobrang chill ng song. Ang sarap pakinggan habang nasa beach ka with your special someone tapos may beer. Sarap din talaga magmahal, no? Haaay. Haha. 

Ito na nga, what are my thoughts? (ang dami ko na sinabi, di ba? wala pa pala, haha)

  1. Never enter a relationship just because. Loneliness is not a reason, never a reason, kahit kasi sabihin mong hindi mo sinasadya na gawing rebound yung new person sa life mo, babagsak at babagsak dun e. Dapat napatawad mo, una, yung sarili mo, and pangalawa, ung naging karelasyon mo para buong buo ka. Ready ka na. Steady, chill. Para mas masaya. 
  2. When you love someone, you are also giving that person the opportunity to hurt you. Wala e, ganun talaga. Kasama un. Pero kahit gano kasakit, dapat hindi tayo magsawang magmahal. Ang sarap kaya. Lahat naman kasi may katapusan, pati pain. 
  3. Nagmahal ng sobra, kaya masakit din talaga. Pero, sugal lang. Ganyan naman talaga ang buhay, we'll never know unless we give it a try, right? Sa Lotto nga super liit ng probability na manalo, pero walang sawa sa pagtaya. Try din natin sumugal sa pag-ibig, pwede din naman. 
  4. Love is the act of an endless forgiveness. Love may come in different levels pero grabe lang. 
  5. Love always gives us hope. Hindi ito ung mga paasa, okay? Iba yun. Haha. 
  6. When you love someone, give it your all. Bakit pa magmamahal kung kulang din naman, wag na. What's stopping you? Kaya nga dapat buo. Mahirap masaktan, kaya wag tayo manakit, okay? Refer to #1. Haha. 
  7. Last, siguro no matter how long it takes, nagkaron kayo ng ibang karelasyon, if kayo talaga, kayo e. Fate will always find its magic. Lahat kasi may reason, lahat ng nakikilala natin may role para ma-mold tayo to the person na we need to be for our future selves and for our future better halves, maybe. (parang nagandahan ako sa sinabi ko na 'to - mature, haha)
  8. So, I said last, but I lied. Chance. Bigay natin 'to sa mga taong maayos naman na gustong pumasok sa life natin. Wala namang mawawala. Lahat naman nagbabago. 😊

Pinipilit ko talaga ung maturity e no? Bottom line, love love lang. It's the greatest feeling ever! There will always be this one person na will help you recover. Will make you feel whole again, will fix the broken pieces, ganon. 

Favorite line ko? "Sayo na ko e" - Nix to Pia (weakness ko talaga 'to kahit sa totoong buhay, haha)
"Paulit-ulit kong isusugal yung puso ko maramdaman ko lang ulit kung anong meron tayo dati" - Nix to Pia

Tapos ang ganda pa ng boses ni Carlo Aquino. Patay na talaga. Haha! 

Thanks for reading mga besh! 💕

Watch na ng Exes Baggage! Lemme know!

Pong Thoughts: Thought Catalog Article 💭

Hi Everyone! 😊

It's August! I just noticed that since 2014, July-August has been quite of a challenge for me. Was wondering why, actually. Or prolly it's just a plain coincidence. I don't know.

This year, it happened again. I came across this Thought Catalog article that really hit me. I have always believed that 2018 is an amazing year for me, don't get me wrong, it still is. It has brought me surprises (good + not so good) and am loving every second of it. Am always grateful.
