(Late Post, Inspirational Post, Personal Post)


18 or 17 yrs ago, there is this day that my mom went to abroad because she is sick of Parkinson's and she have to work for the future of her children. The days before she left, I never heard any goodbyes or messages. Sabi na lng nila, my mom said goodbye while I was sleeping, and nagising pa daw ako nun, but I just felt asleep again. baby pa eh, 3yrs old. I will never forget na pag gising ko nlng Im asking ate min "nasan si nanay" nsa palengke lang daw.. hangang sa hindi na bumalik and found out the truth...

I learned that there will always come a point that you have to say goodbye. For me, that is today. While for my mom, this is the second time. Medyo malungkot kasi unlike the past 3 weeks, sya palagi ung gumigising skin even though in a very awkward way. I am the kind of person na hnd agad gumigising, but if si nanay, once or twice lang na "tricia gising na 10am na" then tatayo lng sya in the corner of my room and will never leave hngat hnd ako tumatayo. Nakatitig lang sya skin. hahaha! So I have no choice kung hndi gumising na. Then after that, We will eat breakfast or lunch na. Angsarap magluto ng nanay ko! Most esp the sinigang, adobo, and the caldereta We eat together everyday for 3 weeks. Her, my brother Kevin and his baby Ethan and most of the time with Len Barrios Angsaya saya ng ambiance ng bahay Alive na alive Sometimes pa bglang ddting sila ate Amihan and kuya Ed together with the makulit na six! Hihi. Then before I sleep naman, I have to take care of nanay. Fix her bed, help her drink her medicine, help her pee sometimes, hug her, and show how much I love her everyday. But today, same old ordinary life again, ung pag gising ko, I have to be independent again. Tahimik ng house, I have to cook or buy for my own, or most of the time, diretso sa school nlng and eat with my friends.

In comparison of the situation on how I wake up 3 weeks ago till yesterday than today, there is really a big difference. But why did I said na "medyo" malungkot lng? Why not super lugkot? Hmm.. Remember the last bastard who said a lot of things to me na kawawa daw ako na magisa lng daw ako and I dont have a family? God just did the revenge (in a good way) for me to her. God just proved her wrong. The past 3 weeks showed me all the goodness in life. It showed me that a person can really change. My father said sorry to all of us from the bottom of his heart. Yes I can feel how deep is his sincerity. The world showed me how he really loves my mom... How he really loves all of us.. And it is so heart warming how she started calling me "my baby" because I am the bunso of the family I felt how to have a happy family. My dream of having a family picture happened. It's a magical feeling. A dream came true.

I am not so lonely because on that past 3 weeks, I've learned that everything really happens for a reason. They left me when I was still a child. I become independent. And now, they went back to me and saw what I am now.. I've showed them what my life is. They learned how many friends I have and how many being loves me despite of their absence. Maybe, what happened on my childhood happened because if not, I wont feel the gift of this magical feeling.. I wont feel the "dream come true" feeling. And most of all, if they didn't leave me, I wont become what I am right now... A better version of me. A Trish who is a dreamer. A Trish who is a strong woman and who never gives up on the battle of life. They made me feel how proud they are to me. I even showed and surprised my mom on the things that I can do that a girl couldn't normally do (ung pag eelectrician sa house hehe)...

The past 3 weeks made me see all the beautiful things in life more and how much should I be thankful how blessed I am. And today, today is the day where I have to continue living and working for my next dreams. Today... Today is the day where they left me a beautiful memories and big love in my heart.

Why should I be lonely when is in fact I should be very thankful instead? Thankful because I know the meaning of my life already and I know how to live it happily and with no regrets. Thankful because another dream was given to me. Thankful because it proved me that every moment should be treasured because we don't know when would be the next time. It proved me that there should be no space for loneliness in our lives because life is beautiful. We just don't look at it because we are busy fixing and looking for the bad things... We are busy making stupid issues that doesn't really matter. And I'm proud to say that I don't do anymore the past few months

3 weeks of living my dreams. 3 weeks full of memories and lessons in life. 3 weeks that made me stronger. And on that 3 weeks, I was able to inspire a lot. I was able to share how to live life happily... I was able to show everyone that dreams really do come true... "Always look at the bright side. Because everything happens for a reason"... Remember?

Farewell ..Hangang sa muli nating pagkikita at pagsasama sama! Have a safe and happy trip! I love you all

Secret to Blogging - SEO (Meet my BREGGENDIES)

Ever wonder why my blog rank is always on top 10 to 40 and never goes down even if Im not active on blogging anymore? Well, other bloggers does wonder and questioned me already about this. Others ask me on what is the secret because somehow they are already struggling through blogging and yet they still haven't accumulate number of viewers. Thus, now, I will tell you the secret. It's about the SEO of blogging. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is a very broad aspect and somehow hard to understand but is very important when it comes to blogging.
What is SEO? Giving you my own explanation on how I understand SEO, it's about how you use keywords on your blog and how will it appear on google. 

Most of the viewers of other blogs come to their domain through the DIRECT URL. Meaning, they type directly the website to the URL/ADDRESS BAR of the screen. And that is the weakest way of earning money through google adsense.  
(Refer to the photo above) In my case, even if I don't have a new post everyday, many people get directed to my domain(blog) through google EVERYDAY. Look at the REFERRING SITES and REFERRING URLs above. Almost all of my blog visitors are the person who searches something on the web and google give my blog on their search engine. 

FYI, the page views on the graph is only for this day. Take Note, I didn't blogged anything for the past few days until only tonight. 

So, what keyword/s does make my blog have a high SEO?
According to the stats, it's the underarm whitening, my name, Trishie dela Cruz, to be followed up by the mini walk-in closet.

On this photo (above) I tried searching my name, as well as the other high keyword which is the underarm whitening (See photo below)

Now, It's up to you how are you going to have a high SEO. That's why if I were you, start typing up SEO on your google or any search engine now :)

Now, I will make a blog post which I want to appear on google. Say for example, I want the pictures of my archi friends named"BREGGENDIES" to appear on the "Images" search results on google. How?
First and foremost, I have to put that as the title of my blog post. 

Second, I have to repeat and repeat that keywordm which is the BREGGENDIES through out this blog post :)

According to one of the group members, Dominique Miles Alferez, Breggendy (Plural: breggendies) means "Nature". 

We are together for better and for worst. In good times and in bad times. Well, I really cant actually remember how my breggendies started but all I know is that they are the friends for keep and the friends where I can always actually lean on. They are my boy friends and I'm their "baby girl". We are family. We are one. And I know that when the time that we are already "Architects" we are still together. . . We are still "breggendies" :)
