Questions I've been asked at least once in my life

...and the stories behind them.

I'm pretty sure you've been asked a question that's totally random it catches you off guard or even a simple question with an answer that changes the situation big time. Please allow me to share a few of my stories that begins with a... question. 

Did we take Chemistry together?
I was still in nursing school and I was in my uniform when I went to Starbucks to get a drink when the cute guy barista suddenly asked "Did we take Chemistry together?" while he was taking my order. I knew he was kidding because I could not have missed that sweet face in my boring Chemistry class. I was young but I must admit, he made my day. #landi

Kamusta love life?
I was parasailing with two of my older cousins. We admired the breathtaking view from above for a good minute when one of us decided to start a conversation to kill time, you know, ask the most intriguing question since you're up in the air and you have nowhere to escape to. "Kamusta love life?" my cousin asked me. "Yun ba yung tali? Naputol yung tali?," I replied. Guys, the rope that connects us to the boat -it snapped. We were flying with our parasail wing. Hidden into the clouds from the people on our boat, about to get blown into a deserted island and be eaten by dinosaurs. Luckily, we survived to tell the tale.

That's me waving at the camera while the two kuyas were helping my cousins. 

Two thumbs up for not dying!

What's holding you back?
A guy I've been seeing asked. I guess it didn't occur to me sooner because I was genuinely enjoying the time we've been having and I only realized then that nothing was holding me back after he asked me that question.

That guy is now my boyfriend. 

Can I get your number?
18 hours after I became a girlfriend, a colleague asked for my number over dinner with a group of friends. That was the second time someone asked for my number in person and it was so awkward. Do I give him my number? Do I say that I'm in a relationship for 18 hours and counting? Lol

What are you doing here, little girl? Does your mother know you're here?
asked by a confused old lady I was taking care of at work.

How about you? Do you have any stories you'd like to share? :D


  1. LOL I got that, "Can I get your number?" so many times after I said yes to my boyfriend! 'Abangers' seem to be attracted to girls who are taken! Hahaha

    I LOVE the new header, btw! Haha Very catchy!

    1. I was probably smelling like love kaya na attract. Haha!

      Thank you! Credits should go to my friends because they say that to me quite often!

  2. Haha! "Did we take Chemistry together?" or "Have we met before?"Just another guy's "pakulo" to get girls' attention.

    1. Para bang something you'd hear in a bar? Haha!
