So Long, Tropa

Promise, this will be my last write up about the issue. I’ve been writing topics about cheating and hurting and moving on since I started my blog in March. Sure, it’s an interesting topic to write but its kinda’ distressing especially when you know so well the people involved. It even came to a point when my own relationship was affected since I tend to stereotype men including my own husband as cheaters and has this hobby playing with somebody else’s feelings.

Or was I just trying to sensationalize events the way showbiz people do? I know for a fact that it has been tough especially for the people directly or indirectly involved.

Everything seems to be ok these past weeks after that dreadful night in Vudu. We started to go out again as a group or should I say --- as a family. But then, there are just these crazy people trying to destroy this family --- people outside the circle. What makes it more painful though is that there are those who rightfully belong to this family who in one way or another supports the destruction. The same people we considered “friends” who without any bit of regret just took this family for granted.

I know things will never be the same again. I, for one no longer wants to be associated with this group (except to my husband of course!). I couldn’t help but feel sorry for what could’ve been a wonderful family. Sayang!

Da Vinci’s club will continue to hang-out… that’s for sure. But the “tropa”? Naaahhh!

Before I finally wrap up this post, I have no regrets having met these people:

The girls

wounded soul

joni (2nd from right)
one lucky momma

survivor and fighter

drama queen

The Guys

my honest to goodness husband

inconsistent… uncertain

life of a party…user?

Ahloie – cheater; fucker

Eden (1st from left)
RnB guy…Johnny Bravo for life

Louie (1st from right)
the most sensible person in the group

I don’t wanna jump into conclusions though…Maybe it isn’t over yet…. I’m still hopeful that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and that in time issues will be resolved.

Struggle of the Brainless

I was trying to pick up my brain, browsing through it’s hemispheres for what seemed like an unintelligent week

The week was spent mostly on booking travels for Expats going in and out of the country. It was an easy task though but the rapid changes in airline rates and schedules from on-line travel agents made me melodramatic for a while it almost gave me a heart attack. Philadelphia to San Francisco flight rate soared from $ 359 to $ 1,069 in a span of 2 hours --- this is crazy! And one more thing, travelocity made me pay $100 cancellation fee for a flight that was never booked/finalized. I almost burst into tears having to pay that amount. Good thing, my boss was so rich she's willing to shoulder the amount of P5K ++.

It has also been a women-empowered week. Alas, the Da Vinci’s Club gathered around for the first time. ‘Twas fun having no husbands/boyfriends around during our night-out. Imagine 4 mouths talking incessantly the entire evening --- what have you got after? Sore throat.

The week was also filled with exaggeration of a friend feeling bitter for missing a spontaneous barkada outing over the weekend. ‘Nuff said --- shallow as it may seem but we just have to understand these types of people. After all, a true friend accepts and understands each other’s differences.

Whew, that was tough… Somehow, after this week, I am still very much sane.

Looking forward to Father's Day, Batman Begins, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Da Vinci's Club convention and UK. Yahoooooo...

Last weekend was a blast!

Events were intertwined like scenes from a tele-novela.

Imagine this…

Farewell party for X-GF @ Vudu with some friends. Current GF (let’s call her PSYCHO BITCH or PB) was also there with some of her own friends. I was with X-GF. I texted my husband to pick me up @ Vudu. Husband came along with “THE GUY” or TG. TG didn’t join PB and instead joined X-GF coz he just broke with PB and wanted to go back to X-GF (his GF for 8 years…). PB got very mad and went out of the bar. PB went to Frontgate where TG’s car was parked. PB picked up a huge stone and smashed it in the windshield of TG’s car. Frontgate staff pointed PB as the culprit. I left Vudu early with my husband and his male friends including TG to grab a bite. TG seemed bothered and had this feeling that something bad really happened to his car. TG asked a friend to drive him to Frontgate. He then discovered what happened of his car. We went to Fuente Police Station to report the incident and then went to PB’s house to talk to her parents. We waited for PB to come home. She arrived together with her friends at 5 in the morning.

Unknowingly,while we were at Fuente Police Station, PB went back to Vudu and confronted X-GF. X-GF seemed not affected at all since she has given up long before TG to PB.

Until now, TG still tries to win back X-GF. And PB? She can go to hell…or I think she’s in hell now. Haha!


I had the longest weekend. It’s Memorial Day in the US so I need not report on May 30. I had some bonding session with my daughter.

We watched “Madagascar” together with my younger sisters. It’s my daughter’s first time to watch a movie on the big screen. I guess she was enjoying the movie a lot even if she doesn’t understand the dialogues yet. She got the same name that of the lion “Alex”.

I enjoyed the movie too…made me forgot that there’s one soul whose mad at me that very day -– my husband. I need not elaborate why he’s mad at me. Hhhhmmm… but we’re ok now! You know, you really can’t avoid some disagreements between couples. It’s as a normal as making love. Hehe


I’ve been spending a lot of time with X-GF lately. She’s leaving for Dumaguete on Wednesday. She will be assigned there for good I guess. I’m having some mixed emotions. I’m happy that she could finally escape from all pain that PB and TG has brought her life with. I’m happy that she’s now far from all the mess that this love triangle has brought about. I just hope that the horrible events during the past months and weeks won’t haunt her.

But, her leaving makes me sad too. I have already developed a certain kind of friendship with her that is way beyond the usual friendships. She helped me overcome my insecurities and she has contributed to my new outlook in life and relationship. She’s one lady you’ll truly admire that despite all the cheating and pain, she doesn’t keep any hatred in her heart. She has opened a lot of doors for me and I’m truly grateful. I’m so lucky to have her as my friend. Huhuhu…I will miss her terribly!
