MusicBoxDiary: Better Place


by: Rachel Platten
The sixth track on Rachel Platten’s Wildfire Album


[Verse 1]
I'll tell the world (I'll sing a song)
It's better place since you came along
Since you came along
Your touch is like sunlight through the trees
Your kisses are the ocean breeze

Everything's alright, when you're with me

[Chorus]
And I hold my favorite thing
I hold the love that you bring
But It feels like, I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
There's a song in my heart
I feel like I belong
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

[Verse 2]
I see the whole world in your eyes
It's like I've known you all my life

We just feel so right, so I pour my heart into you hands
It's like you really understand, you love the way I am

[Chorus]
And I hold my favorite thing
I hold the happiness you bring
But It feels like, I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
And the sun paints the skies
And the wind sings our song
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

[Outro]
Now I'm alright, Now I'm alright
Everything's alright
Cause It feels like, I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
There's a song in my heart, I feel like I belong
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

Seoulmate Found!


 December last year, we finally found time to visit "Seoulmate" - a Korean restaurant in Bajada, Davao City. 

We have dined to several Korean restaurants such as Gangnam, GuiGui, Manna, and more. And because we love Korean food it is impossible to skip "Seoulmate".

 

If you're the "hugot line" type or you have the knack for "laslas-puso lines" then Seoulmate might be the place for you. They have a post-it wall where you can write off your thoughts.

"Makakita lage ko ug forever!!! Tiwala lang"
To whoever wrote this...fighting!
 
"LOVE DIED HERE"
I don't want to be judgmental...but...never mind :)



 
 


As for the food, I'm going to rate the basic factors from 1-5 with 1 as the lowest and 5 as the highest.

FOOD - 4
The level of spiciness of the food is perfect. In other Korean restaurant, MILD spicy is still very spicy :) 
In general, all of the food we ordered are delicious!

PLACE - 5
Location is good, it's along the highway with enough parking space. There are many available seats as well and there's a section where you can squat with pillows. Comfy!

SERVICE - 2
We were the only customers but all of our order were served almost an hour. Although the crew are friendly and accommodating to our needs, our hungry tummies were just upset. Maybe our "bad" experience was a one time thing though.

PRICE - 3
A bit pricey :)

 Side dish: sweet dilis, radish and kangkong
 
 kimchi chigae

Beef Bulgogi


Tuna Bibimbap

 Lunch box meal

gangnam-nam-nam

One stressful Monday, we decided to fill our tummies with happy food.
We went to the newly opened Korean resto "Gangnam" in Abreeza Mall

Food and place is good.
I love the smoked salmon maki (drooling).
 The price is a bit expensive though compared to other Korean restos in the city.

spoonful

to my used-to-be seatmate
who easily believes in my "made-up" stories(hahaha)
who endured all my daily quirkiness and unintentional bully mood swings
who went penniless with me with our first online business venture

madam (naks! we have a term of endearment)
it was a not-short-yet-not-long enough time we've shared as workmates
but we were able to build a strong foundation of friendship
we don't agree on same things yet we often end up laughing on our differences (di ba?)

from creating test scripts to testing bugs
 from reading system logs to running queries
(there were days we turned into zombies)
our goal was perfection!
but know that there's always that silver lining for errors

so now you're a MRS?!?!@#@!$
(paano na si "edward" nyahaha)
truly, i am super-duper-over-over happy for you and oj
wait-while is worth-while :) 
 
love love love you shyn!
see you in our monthly date!

dear coffee, let's breakup

dear coffee, 


    let's break-up.



mornings don't pass without a sip of caffeine from my old-cracked- heart-painted mug
you leave a bitter taste on my tongue that awakens my sleepy cells
you warm my cold thoughts on system bugs, critical emails, and failed cron jobs
you charge me up and electrify my veins

it was too good to last

then the betrayal of the human anatomy took place
my stomach no longer wants to take you in
i tried to push it more and continued on with morning caffeine sessions
i lose the battle in the end, damn acid reflux!

it's one of those things in life that brings you happiness and pain at the same time

so i had to bid farewell to your smell, warmth, taste, and the mere thought of you
but it wasn't easy! 
people around me reminds me of you
it was decided, i had to get better

after then let's get back together and never break-up

MusicBoxDiary: She Used To Be Mine



 by Sara Bareilles
From her 5th studio album, What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress

[Verse 1]
It's not simple to say
That most days I don't recognize me
That these shoes and this apron, that place and its patrons
Have taken more than I gave them
It's not easy to know
I'm not anything like I used be, although it's true
I was never attention's sweet center
I still remember that girl

[Chorus 1]
She's imperfect, but she tries
She is good, but she lies
She is hard on herself
She is broken and won't ask for help
She is messy, but she's kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
She is gone, but she used to be mine

[Verse 2]
It's not what I asked for
Sometimes life just slips in through a back door
And carves out a person and makes you believe it's all true
And now I've got you
And you're not what I asked for
If I'm honest, I know I would give it all back
For a chance to start over and rewrite an ending or two
For the girl that I knew

[Chorus 2]
Who'll be reckless, just enough
Who'll get hurt, but who learns how to toughen up
When she's bruised and gets used by a man who can't love
And then she'll get stuck
And be scared of the life that's inside her
Growing stronger each day 'til it finally reminds her
To fight just a little, to bring back the fire in her eyes
That's been gone, but used to be mine
Used to be mine

[Refrain]
She is messy, but she's kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
She is gone, but she used to be mine
