Possible #OnTheWingsOfLove Endings by Didi

Okay, I will just put it out there. My head is swimming with ideas on the possible finale.  So, here are some ideas! Makikigulo ako.. But first, let me say - that these are all just MY ideas, nothing etched in stone, you know - just throwing it out there. I TRUST & BELIEVE in the scriptwriters and directors. But before the series ends, let me enjoy - indulge me if you will.  These endings are INSPIRED by these movies and stories.  They not necessarily have the exact same ending. Please leave a comment, let me know what you think!! Ending # 1:   Love Affair / Sleepless in Seattle I sooooo love the movie - Love Affair.  I was excited and heartbroken but I loved loved loved how these movies ended.  Love endures, LOVE WINS!  Meant to be..... I say this because remember the line Nanang Rona says all the time?  Kung mahal ka, babalikan ka.  So I feel that this ending might be possible. NO - no one will figure in an accident, but instead of an accident, maybe somethi

Driver's License Renewal 2016: La Loma District Office in 56 MINUTES (Step by Step Guide)

On thing I really really dislike is going to government offices for renewal of passports and licenses.  Last week, I was supposed to go late in the afternoon because three years ago, it took me less than 45minutes.  But when I called the La Loma District Office (LLDO) the person who answered the phone told me that they have a cut off at 4:30PM (why should there be a cut off?  Aren't they supposed to serve EVERYONE regardless the number as long as it's before 5:00PM??!!)  And he said that since all the satellite offices are closed EVERYONE comes to their branch.  Hell. My friend Kris, went to the LTO last week to renew her license on her birthday and was welcomed with long lines.  I didn't want to ruin my day, so I decided to go a day after my birthday.  I decided to leave at 7:30am because I was advised to go early since the *Medical Exam Office* opens earlier than 8am. So at 7:45am - I was already at the La Loma District Office (LLDO) of LTO Firstly - THERE ARE N

My possible scenarios for the #OnTheWingsOfLove finale

As with all Pinoy Teleseryes, everything comes to a happy end.  No matter how many bombs were detonated, how many characters killed and have came out alive from nowhere.  Amnesias have come and gone.  Babies switched at birth, name it all those themes still have happy endings (even if they're crappy) So for sure, I assumed this much with #OnTheWingsOfLove.  I was excited because I knew the ending was a wedding.  For a change - it was expected and something very happy, an event we'd all like to celebrate.  Imagine seeing a wedding outfit clad #JaDine.  Wow, diba?  Such eye candy!  I was very excited to be honest and really looking forward to the wedding finale. But then weeks ago, when #JaDine were shooting scenes in San Francisco.  It made me think - where were the kids?  Where was the *family*? I was honestly suspicious, but then again - who knows?!  I remember being told that scenes on location are shot depending on what was needed.  So parang shoot lang ng shoot, let

Why I don't want #JamesReid & #NadineLustre to be a REAL couple..

I have gushed and gushed again and again about how much I am so in LIKE with the loveteam of #JamesReid and #NadineLustre aka #JaDine. Last night, my Instagram feed was flooded with images and videos from #JamesReid & #NadineLustre 's feed in their own IG accounts.  #JaDine is always a good bait for me to click - so I did and what I saw my gosh - made me super duper duper KILIG! These two recently went to the US to shoot some scenes for I can only guess, their show #OnTheWingsOfLove.  I was surprised to see how much this team up has gained a following.  While exiting the airport, they were swarmed with fans!  I pity those who were exiting the arrival hall with them not knowing who they were because they were literally pushed aside and shoved and screamed at.  Hahaha!  It was that intense.  Who would have thought that just months prior, they didn't have this much following nor were they welcomed like superstars!  I was in awe of the support that they got.  I never e

Product Review: Tangle Angel Baby brush

Kailee has long hair and it's a task to brush it.  Well, because every after shower time or after a playing - her hair gets so tangled up that I sometimes wish she had shorter hair.  We honestly don't use a brush - we use a comb for her hair.  You may ask why a comb?  Well, we received a LOT of combs as gifts!  I don't want to buy a *special* brush for her hair, hihi.  The combs that we use have been functional, small and handy.  But you know what?  The bristles have broken easily because of the many tangles of Kailee.  Well, the combs that we have were not of *superior* quality, but not to worry since we have a lot.  Hahaha!!  I then have a hard time cleaning the bristles of the comb, I use a tooth brush and most of the time, it's not enough - I need to use tissue or wipes and insert it in between the bristles to clean!  Hassle!! During the last quarter of last year - I received this very cute and pink Tangle Angel Baby. Pink is Kailee's favorite colo

Loving Zenutrients' Gugo Shampoo

I never had hair problems - EVER.  I was always so proud that my hair was jet black, silky and full.  Would you believe that I've never had a single strand of white hair?  Yes, I was also very proud of that because we have a family history of having white hair early.  I was, you can say - happy with the crown of hair on my head.  I've tried long and short hair styles too!  I've colored it and styled it, used products everyday - but I never had it re-bonded.  I was too chicken to damage my hair.  That was my only limitation when it comes to my hair.  I had this No to re-bonding policy even if I was tempted sooooo many many many times.  Hahaha!! But that fact (of having no hair problems) is long forgotten now.  Ever since becoming a mom, well - you can say - I suffered major hair loss.  When I was breastfeeding Kailee - it seemed that I was having quite heavy of a hair fall/loss.  I never noticed it until a friend of mine mentioned it.  I felt really embarrassed because

Happy Birthday Treat: 2016 Serenitea Diary Giveaway!

It's a Happy New Year indeed! January is a special month for me because it's my birthday month! :) So, to celebrate this birthday month of mine - I'll be giving away my 2016 Serenitea Diary! You may ask - why I'm giving another planner/diary away.  Well, you see - I really love planners/diaries BUT I feel that I don't get to utilize them.  I use them for a couple of months and then forget about it for the rest of the year!  It made me think - why not just share it to others, who have better use for it, diba?  Share the blessing! So here I am - giving away my 2016 Serenitea Diary! Serenitea will always be special to me because it's the first local milk tea brand that I fell in love with.  As they say - first love never dies.  I am loyal like that.  My favorite will always be Okinawa 50% with sago.  Do you know that when I was pregnant with Kailee, I always bought 4 large ones?  One large is for me to drink while on the road, one is for Panget, anot

Longchamp Bag + Grandma's Secret Spot Remover = a cleaning MIRACLE!

Happy New Year! I am very excited to share a discovery!  Yes, well - I think the product has been around for quite a while now.  I have been seeing Grandma's Secret Spot Remover in stalls whenever we go malling.  It's just that I never got around to buy one because I never thought I'd have a use for it.  That was until the unthinkable happened. I saw an oil stain on my bag! See that stain?  I couldn't think of any reason why my bag would have stain on it.  I was always clutching it or holding it or hanging it.  In no way are the walls, my fingers the table was oily.  I MADE SURE of it!  Hahaha!!  I would examine surfaces first before I set down my bag.  I was very careful.  I am very careful with all my bags, I don't want them to be dirtied uneccessarily.  But somehow - this happened, I don't know how - but what was I to do?  All I could think of was - Damage control. I asked friends for advice.  I asked a friend who is a Longchamp addict.  She tol

Loco over Locavore!

Yes, I finally tried Locavore! I've heard soooooo many many many good things about Locavore. It was a few weeks ago when my HS friends thought of bringing our *Balikbayan* friend Cubie here.  I must admit, I was very excited!  Very excited that I got to Locavore at 11am!  Hahaha.. But that was because I came from picking up Kailee from her Christmas program practice at Tektite. I will get straight to the point and show you the pictures that my friend Cubie took of our meal. Everything was great.  REALLY really great.  The food is rich, the presentation is very *French*!  I was told that Chef Kel had a background in French cuisine and so, he incorporated those techniques to our Pinoy dishes.  I think that was a brilliant idea - and I believe, it struck gold!  I was raving every after spoonfuls.  Yes, it was that good!! I won't go into detail because I'd like you to personally experience what I did when I first ate here.  I was blown away by the flavors!  I mean,
