"Mountains are savage but what is the best part about them? They bring people closer." - Tanveer Mazhar
Yes, literally & figuratively, the mountains definitely brought us closer. ;) So, no matter how steep the mountains & how big are troubles are, we can climb & defeat them so long as we’re together. Looking forward to climbing more mountains with you, Lui. Thank you for always making us happy. Mga banat mo wagas eh. Stay bungisngis ‘coz that’s what we love the most about you. Happy, happy birthday! Wish you good health & wealth & love life na rin. :D I love you and I miss you sooooo badly. Sana magpakita ka na sa amin. Haha! I’m always here for you. Resbak mo ko palagi. :) God bless you & your family always. :) xoxo
Happy birthday sa pinaka-pogi kong bro. :) I love you so much Em-em ko. I hope you’re always happy & all your dreams come true. I also wish you good health & wealth. God bless you always. Happee Birthdae!!! :D xoxo
Nots insisted that she wanted to watch a Harry Potter film last night since it’s Harry’s birthday. Told her she can’t because it’s a weekday and she’s only allowed to watch a movie during the weekends. Guess what? She wins. She said she wanted to celebrate Harry’s birthday. Okay, fine, Baby Love. Just this one time, okay? ;) Happee Birthdae, Harry! Happy Birthday, JK Rowling! :) #harrypotter #harrypotterforever #happybirthday #birthday #happybirthdayharrypotter #jkrowling #happybirthdayjkrowling #iloveharrypotter #thankyou #thankyouharrypotter #thankyoujkrowling
After our St. Clare visit, we had lunch last Sunday at Tokyo Tonteki at UP Town Center in Katipunan. I guess we had our money’s worth because we were so full since the meal sets include refillable soup, cabbage & rice. Nice. :) #lunch #foodie #notsandlots #babylove #friends #friendsforkeeps #friendsforlife #friendsforever #family #love #ilovemyfamily #ilovemyniece #ilovemymama #ilovemyfriends #japanese #japanesefood #biglunch #latepost #latergram #bff

Three years today since my dad died. Shame he never knew me as an adult (I was 19) because I’m a bloody great one. He died of a sudden, out-of-nowhere stroke while I was at VidCon and he was at home in London. He was out of it straight after but still kind of there and then he died a couple of days later. 1 in 5 strokes are fatal & annually, worldwide, approx 15 million people have a stroke. To help work towards making these statistics less depressing, read up on The Stroke Association here: http://www.stroke.org.uk
Rosianna is a bloody good adult.
Rosianna was one of the first readers of Looking for Alaska, has been a nerdfighter since the very first vlogbrothers video was uploaded, and now works as my assistant (although that job title rather underplays her importance to me and to the nerdfighter community).
Three years ago today, she became the first teenager ever to read The Fault in Our Stars. Her dad had just died, and she was stuck at Vidcon. I never imagined then that she would become such a bloody good adult, or that she’d become such a close friend and collaborator.
But I have always known Rosianna to be a person of excellent judgement, blistering intelligence, and great competence. And while I know that her dad would have so much to be proud of today, he had much to be proud of then as well.
Made me smile. Thank you, Jack & Rose. :)
