Nostalgia: QC and Uptown BGC

Whenever I hear upbeat music, I suddenly think of our humble abode in Quezon City where I grew up. Spent most of my life in that house, a huge part of me wanted to go back and lay down to my room and travel time to the past--where I read all the books during nighttime and wrote letters to the friends I thought were my friends.

Sure, upbeat music could be everywhere but why Quezon City, then?
It's because where I grew up as a dreamer and believer of all things. Our house was one of the witnesses of how I dream to become a lawyer or diplomat someday, have I known Psychology wasn't for me. Of endless hopes to be part of one's future and forever, I wrote letters that I thought were surreal but it's all made of magical imaginations. They were written physically, but were replied invisibly.

Silent nights are usually for sightseeing at Uptown Bonifacio Global City; it's the place where me and my Mom usually walk by because she tends to shop a lot (cheap finds, fyi) at Market! Market! or stroll along SM Aura and have ramen in a Japanese restaurant. Or dream of living at The Serendra, someday. Uptown Bonifacio Global City is next to my Quezon City's home.

SM Aura for me is like SM Seaside in Cebu City where only few people shop/stroll. I admit I like places like this. I can walk peacefully without worrying much of crowded people.

I want to live back in Quezon City but I guess my fate is already here in Cebu City--we will know once I graduate next year.
