Why I Haven’t Been Blogging Lately!

It’s because I’ve been trying out Vlogging and using my YouTube channel as my outlet right now. Certainly not the same as blogging but no worries. I renewed this domain last week so I’m still committed to this blog!

Here’s my latest vlog, my fourth one so far! Please subscribe to my channel! ūüôā

Priorities, Priorities, Priorities

Am I at a crossroads?

…I don’t think the situation is that drastic.

It has been 7 weeks since my 2 month journey outside America and, to put it bluntly, the time away really altered my entire perspective on life. Or maybe it solidified the uncertainties of how I want to live this life of mine.

You see, I believed I had it all planned out properly before these international trips ever happened.  Continue reading

How To Be Yours


During my latest visit to the Philippines, I watched the film¬†How To Be Yours at the movie theater. Although having been to the Philippines several times, this was my first time actually going to the movie theaters¬†and experiencing just how large and spacious and well-conditioned they are. Now why choose this particular movie? I simply saw the trailer on TV and wanted to watch a Pinoy film…and it was that or Suicide Squad. I wanted to feel¬†kilig so the choice was easy.

I have been too inconsistent with my blog posting so I think it would be a good idea to reintroduce myself.

Hello there.

My name is Patrick. But many call me Pat Pat, which gives a clue to the name of my blog. Patrick and Pat Pat may be two different people.

I am the first to be born in America on both sides of my family. However, I am extremely attached to the Philippines.

I am an aspiring biomedical engineer and deejay. “Aspiring” because I’m currently unemployed and I have no DJ skills whatsoever.

I was meant to be left-handed but my mother forced me to be right-handed. No wonder I have no talents.

I have worn glasses since the age of 7.


I love karaoke. I could go for hours. It is a great method for emotional catharsis.

I believe a stranger is a friend I have not met yet.

I rarely get angry. I rather choose to laugh things off or infuse humor into a bad situation. Everybody needs to have a sense of humor. Don’t take life so seriously, guuuuys.

I am an overthinker. To the point of insanity at times.

I am willing to sacrifice my own happiness (whether they be financial, romantic, or other personal goals) for my family. God and family first.

I am not a hopeless romantic. I am an incurable romantic.

I am a sucker for sentimental songs and movies that make me kilig.

I could care less about The Walking Dead, Star Wars/Trek, Harry Potter, and most likely any of your favorite TV or movie series. I prefer foreign films over Hollywood.

I’ve almost drowned twice so I’m scared of deep water.

Loyalty, honesty, trustworthiness, compassion are four very important virtues to me.

I have a bucket list.

I usually carry around a small notebook or journal because I may have the urge to write.

My most watched movie of all time is Space Jam. The first movie that made me cry is the Lion King. My favorite movie is probably a toss-up between Requiem For A Dream and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. 

Gustong-gusto ko maging fluent sa Tagalog.

Almond milk all day!

Believe it or not, I’m actually naturally shy.

I’m allergic to lots of things. Trees, grass, furry pets, dust and dirtiness. It’s a rough world out there.

Girls who can rap or play guitar or are bookworms. Ohhh man…ūüėć

In the confines of my bedroom I’m the best dancer and rapper the world has ever known.

I’m addicted to traveling and hope to visit all 50 states. But I think I have to put travel plans on hold…

If I sleep less than 6 hours, I basically sabotaged my day.

I don’t the forget people who made an impression on my life, even if we just met for an hour or never met in person.

I often engage in conversations with myself and, no, it’s not weird. I think I’m my best listener. :p

If I choose just one song lyric that defines me, it would be this one by the Beatles:

And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.


More posts to come! ūüôā
