Sonnen Berg

Sonnen Berg and the Hype of “Sea of Clouds” as well glamming the gram! 🙈📸

Sonnen Berg

This resort/viewing deck is just along the highway before reaching Datu Salumay in Marilog. Opens 4:30am for 50pesos; expect a crowd on weekends and a cute pool. If you are up to the stunning sea of clouds and sun rise, Marilog is one of the best. But photos from Sonnen Berg are too glammed for the gram. 🐾🙈📸

You can can look for a viewing area along Marilog’s highway, free of charge and eye level view of sunrise or try Sonnen Berg along with a crowd and see for yourself.  #JustSaying

Shattered

1d622-lakemirrorMany times, I keep asking myself why I let these things happened. Why, I didn’t carefully choose the man I should be with after 9 years of choosing to be safe. Why and so many why’s.

It will take a year for me to get out from all the mess he left. But it is better than a longer span of denying he is not a better half. And keep on hoping that someone useless as a man will change.

Woman, you are no hero. No one will change for you unless they wanted to. How can you forget a simple lesson. Life is no fairy tale and there is no perfect love story. But, I wish I was just hurt and left out. Not like this, I am the only one facing all these problems where he should also deal with all these.  He is free while me needs to work triple times to cover everything.

I am really broke and shattered, but I promise will give a good fight and end all these with a smile.

To you, have a good life and never do it again with other woman. Remember, life is short, there is KARMA, and I have a JUST GOD.

Sorry, I just need to write…
