When I was a student in Baguio, my Ibaloi friends used to bombard me with Kalanguya or rather 'anti-Kalanguya' jokes. I never was able to hold my own around those nasty jokers. :) So how about this for revenge? Hehehe

I'm mad at Bill for putting me up to this: :) I suck at the "I WILL NOTs..." cuz I am still learning how to say no... but oh well... no harm in trying. It might even help me. So thanks Wil for starting this and thanks Bill for taggin' me.

Now that I'm living for YouI could not understand some of Your plansBut I am assured that whatever happensYou'll be with me all throughout the way. Bridge: I understood you died for me You paid my debt in Calvary I can never repay you For it's your blood that washed all my sins away.
The story behind this song is that, I broke up with my boyfriend at…
