Otep's Gift


My world used to be so small. I turned down party invitations. I rarely went out. I didn't travel much. The farthest I've been to was Antique, which was only 40-50 kilometers away from my home. I didn't have Twitter or Facebook. My life was predictable.

This blog changed me. I found my adventurous side. I met some new faces, explored some new places and gained new friends.. Emphasis on the new friends. One of the greatest gifts of blogging is the gift of friendship.

I received this text message from a very good friend last year. I still have this in my inbox. This sweet Christmas greeting came from Otep, one of the sweetest and funniest guys I've met. He has the gift of wit and humor. He never fails to make me smile. I could hug this guy all day. ☺


Translation: Merry Christmas, Leah. You're one of the most beautiful gifts I've received this year. :-)

Awww.. As sweet as sugar.

    1. Oh so true. Though meron ding negative, pero mas madaming positive. hehe.. Especially the the friendships. :) I have wonderful memories with some of my most favorite bloggers.. #daydreams lol..

      Yep, sobrang sweet ni Otep. Did you know.. he stayed with me sa MOA until midnight, para lang may makasama muna akong tumambay, bago ako dumiretso sa airport at 1am? :) Umuwi na ang lahat, nagpaiwan talaga sya (and admin Bernard).. aww, sweetness. :)

    1. Wala kaya akong natanggap.. Pramis. Actually, ako nga nagtampo kasi wala kang ipinadala.. :p Di, seryoso, wala tlaga akong natanggap. Pero baka hindi ko natanggap kasi after ng misa, umuwi na kami ng bahay.. eh walang signal dun samin. :p Merry Christmas! lol.

    1. He is! :)

      Well, not yet.. But someday. Right, Mark? :) And there are lots of amazing bloggers in England. I'm sure some of them go out and meet up. :)

      I know you're great friends with Fang. He's from Netherlands, right? oh, and Hazel's from Ireland? Oh, I would love to meet all three of you.. :)

    2. I think Hazel is who I have the best chance of meeting with. Me, Fang, one of his friends, and an American blogger have said we'd all love to get together some time in the future. It'd be a nice thing to do but I think if I'm not willing to make an actual video of myself I'm not ready for that step.

    3. Welp, someday, I'll get a really good job and get really rich, and pay for traveling expenses for all of us, and everything will be pretty damn awesome. No worries, I'll drag you into the outgoing state ;D

      Delete
    4. Yay! That'll be great, Fang! I hope you get a really god job and get rich, asap. ;D

      Oh.. and Mark, how come? I'm sure you look good and that you're a human being, not an alien. :D *grins* Kidding.. But yeah, respect. Just make the video when you're good and ready, Mark. :) We don't mind the wait.

    5. It really is just high self consciousness and just a total unwillingness to come out totally that much on the internet. I've seen some of the worst this place have to offer.

      Delete
    6. Aww that really was a sweet text message!

      And when I win the lottery I plan on traveling the world to visit all my favourite blogger friends lol :)

      Delete
    7. Right on! I hope you win the lottery asap, so that you could come and visit me, too!~hehe.. :)
