About Apple Salva

AB Political Science student a lover of literature, arts, fashion, botany and the animal kingdom. :))) I have skills in sketching, writing, craft-making, designing, lay-outing and a little in video-editing and painting. I play the flute very well. I do play billiards and badminton. BUT, I'm quite a dreamer because I want to know how to play an acoustic guitar and a piano. I'd also want to learn how to play basketball and volleyball although I tried playing them many times during high school; and I'm intensely hoping to be able to know how to swim (the saddest part), to drive a bicycle and a motorcycle. Before I die, I want to accomplish all those things I've mentioned. Aside from those, I'd also want to be able to pass in bar exam, establish my own law firm, practice my profession (which is to defend my client), to at least serve the public and engage in the political arena, to be able to finish my novel and perhaps write more, to be able to establish my own foundation, to have my own clothing line or god forbid a fashion house (haha), to watch musical plays all around the world which also means to travel to different places and tastes their specialty of delicacies, to meet the Paramore band even they are already disbanded (if that is) and even if Hayley is too old by that time, more so, to be able to have my own farm or maybe a garden where various exotic plants grow and bloom with animals around the area, and lastly, to transform the government system of the Philippines into a FEDERAL SYSTEM. I am both idealistic and realistic.

What I’d Like to Do Several Years From Now (any of these)

What would you be doing 15 years from now??? Every one of us has these must-to-do-in-life. We dream of fulfilling random things and we aim in succeeding. And even to the point wherein some other people would tell us that we should take our time and not rush things. Well, they have the point but isn’t just so nice telling ourselves we can achieve whatever we have in our mind? It may be idealistic but the thought of those makes us persons. They define us. Which is why I respect people telling me those kind of things but I much value the ambitions I have which leads me to list down all the professions and things I wish I’d have in the near future.

  • Lawyer – This is what I wanted the most. I always love to debate but as of now, I don’t have the interest to debate in tournaments. I have the passion to speak in front of many people, deliver my speech and argue in an intellectual group discussions. But to suffice that in a law profession, I love being a lawyer honestly because I want the social status it has been associated to. I want my name preceded by “atty.” and I feel the need in advising people on what to do about legal or procedural matters. Also, I want to open up long lost cases which I think I could still reopen. I wanted to help the poor, it’s not idealism or “Ms. Universe” kind of answer but I always pity the poor especially old people which is why I want to help them free of charges. I hate seeing old people in jail (just this time, let me disregard their offenses just the mere fact that they are imprisoned)


  • Government Agency Employee – Relating to my course, I just want to be an employee in a government agency like DILG or NBI and do a lot of clerical works and serve people. I want to be an asset of leadership and make effects in the bureaucracy.


  • Senator – Because I idolize Sen. Miriam Santiago of the Phil. Senate (also a member of ICJ) I now want to become a Senator and make laws. Aside from that, the very essence of this is to make laws good for the people. Well you know, I fucking hate some of our laws gone to waste, really. They are good ones but the implementation is bad and poor. I want to make a law about changing the institutional form of government of our country into a federal form.


  • Fashion Designer – Well, fashion is really my passion and I think I am the only person who knows that. I love styling clothes and doing DIY stuff in order to come up with a pretty combo. I study a lot of fashion themes and I just love designing.


  • Author – I wrote a rough draft of my novel and I now, if the will says so… I want to go back to writing a novel and start a new one. I want to publish relevant socio-political awakening books which tackle various societal and political issues. Aside from earning, I’d also love to inspire people around the world.


  • Writer/Columnist – I am that opinionated type of person which is why I always aim to be a writer or a columnist of a certain tabloid or newspaper and magazines. I also want to tell people about my thoughts and that I have a stand.


  • Gardener – Plants are precious for me. I want a garden that’s full of species of flowers, ordinary plants and herbal ones. I want to grow as much as of these plants and create a greenhouse. Along with that, I always want to stay green-fingered.


  • F21 Model – This is my wildest dream- to become a Forever 21 model. Though I don’t have guts and qualities to be one. Still I firmly believe that I can be like those my favorite F21 models- tan, thin and gorgeous. Haha


  • Traveler – I want to travel to South Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan, Egypt, Greece, Australia, France and?


How about you? What are your ambitions? You can even list as much as you want.


September COME BACK!

Hi, I’m back for a very long time! How are you?

Well as for me, I am doing fine- really really fine though I had a lot of relapse and mishaps the past months. Just recently, I am also managing my anxiety problem. Thought of going to our guidance office but I rejected the thought because I seemed to be managing this well, so far.

But going back, I seemed to process a lot of ideas the past few months and I hadn’t been blogging those. A lot of those and forgot most of them. But let me start my come back with a bio-post again LOL

I’ve already made changes, small changes with immense impacts. So far, they made me better. They changed me for like 70% in me (perhaps if my estimation is not wrong)

First, I’ve come not to hate this one person anymore. Way back, I was used to curse her like hell because I simple hate her the way she is. I was jealous back then because she has something I don’t have. I admit that. I hate her existence and I hate everything about her. But that was before. Now, I’m loving her as a friend. I don’t mind what she’s up to, what she’s doing or even what she’s wearing now compared before. The rage against her has not yet blown away entirely but at least 1/8 of it has gone so far. The feeling is light and I love it.

Second, as much as possible I was able to resist temptations and deny so much materialism. I am working now as a writer in a certain company plus I race through days to keep with my schedule as a working student and as a responsible daughter. Still, I am this person in the house who never leaves the house with so much mess and I see to it that my cousin is good going to school and that mom’s fine. I deal with problems (though I had hard times and worst ones) and I was able to keep my pedestal. More so, temptations though they’re nerve-wracking still at least even a bit, I was able to resist them like simple eat-outs and strolling. I kept up. I was also able not to buy so much things which I did not need. Now, I only buy those I see as very important. I am also glad to have my job because it really pays – I get paid while I learn and enjoy.

Third, the exposure I was used to have in school had been changed. I am now an ordinary school girl and I love everything about it, no regrets though there are times I would think I wished I had them back. But I love earning my own money and earning job experience credits. For practicality’s sake. I wouldn’t want to graduate by 2015 (hopefully) with no job assurance. I was also able to avoid too much texting of which I was addicted into. Then, today is my 16th day of no Facebook account. It’s just I felt Facebook brought no good things to me the past weeks which is why I deactivated it. Now I am now in my Twitter and I love every single thing I do there. Also I realized that I could really survive from these changes so long as I still have “one thing” to share all my random feelings whenever I want to shout out and that is Twitter.

Fourth, the guy I’ve been eyeing for so long now has been a brain drain for me which is why I chose to avoid him and eventually cut off our communication. Will not go into details but I am just happy we’re not talking anymore- virtual talks I mean. I believe he’s still into this girl and I couldn’t keep up. I hurt hurting myself, simple as that. I’ve only been an option, that’s my instinct and observation and I couldn’t anymore suffice looking so dumb which is why I ended everything. But so much for that…

Fifth, the most important thing is that…. despite my anxiety disorder (specifically OCD) and all the problems at work, school and at home, I am slowly pacing- I am slowly retrieving my steps- I am slowly rising- I am slowly taking a stand- I am slowly recovering because I also came back to God. To be honest, I came to a point where I missed Him. I forgot He was there and I even doubted His existence. But I am thankful enough that after a very long time (I guess so) I am now back to His Kingdom. I’d always love reading few passages in the Bible every night and I love talking to Him whenever I want. It seems that God is more than a Twitter to me. As Twitter would accumulate all my emotions and ideas, God is more than that. He’s also able to relieve my stress and pains. He’s able to solve what I’m going through by simply tapping at my back and hugging me although not physically.

I may have had a lot of rise and fall for the last 3 months but I surpassed them. Good thing I have Him. So truly blessed. Hope you find His intervention, too. 🙂 He’ll put a smile on your face, for sure. 🙂

Ashley Tisdale: Style Icon

Ashley Tisdale has been my idol since I was in grade 5 🙂 I didn’t get hooked with High School Musical but I was totally impressed with Ashley T. playing as Sharpay because she plays the role just perfectly fine and after the series of HSM, I didn’t stop idolizing her cos even now, I consider her my style icon.


I am not a fashionista, TBH not really. I wear clothes according to comfort, appropriateness and expression but I read and follow a lot of fashion blogs, I get updates from most of the top rated brands and I experiment mixing pieces. So I guess I am not fashionista by the look but just by heart or maybe I was just brought up by my idea that fashionistas are those who can follow the trend, buy expensive items or those who get media/internet attention. But for me, real fashionistas are like that. 

Now since, I am NOT fashionista, what I just enjoy doing is dressing just according to my taste and it brings me butterflies in my bellies knowing that Ashley T is someone I can consider as my style icon because apart  from I idolize her because of her talent, my need for simple fashion sense is satisfied by this Hollywood celeb just how she struts her stuff. As you see…


She’s that one person that can walk with elegance in an effortless manner like when she doesn’t need a lot of trimmings, changes, retouches and what not. With the photos I’ve been saving in my docs, I see her with a lot of confidence with everything she wears, which makes her more appealing. 






Observe her fashion sense and you can say, she’s artsy and so chic in casual. I really like the way she dresses because it gives me a lot of ideas on how to work with my clothes- like how to mix and match and everything under the sun… of which doing so will not overdo my  ideal get-ups for school cos I like dressing up effortlessly and a lil bit untamed (HAHA) but at the same time chic and vogue. PLUS I NEED COMFORT!!!!!! … and dear Ashley T. gives me that….






These photos I posted here (ok -_- another from Mr. Google) are just ones of those photos which keep me inspired. ❤

Give it up for the Introverts!

I totally agree. In school, I always meet a lot of introverts and sometimes I feel more than the introverts around me because they wouldn’t talk nor even just attempt to say something in class. But I realized that some of them are just simply quiet and shy but they have the skills and intelligence. Well, even now, though I am E I appreciate trying to be I. Hahaha TBH 🙂

How to Leave a Home

Yeah change is hard but totally rewarding when you start to accept it 🙂


When your husband shows you the house, recently re-listed on Zillow, complain that he’s been cheating on your home again.  And worse, on the Internet.  You thought you’d agreed to stay here, to stay home, in this sweet corn-yellow colonial, but instead, you find yourself clicking through the photographs, imagining your children at play in the fenced backyard, their growth ticks on the moldings (original to the house!),  watching rainstorms from the screened porch.  You have arranged your furniture in the living room.

You go to the open house with your husband and both sets of parents.  Your mother gushes as though you don’t own a beautifully remodeled kitchen in your house with tall cream-colored cabinets, rich hand-scraped floors, a farmhouse sink, the kind of kitchen your colonial always dreamed of.  You and your husband spent hours deciding on details and he, weeks making it come to life.  It is…

Little Struggles Within…..

It’s like I am feeling annoyed of myself. Overweight stuffs hurting my back. I am conscious about these things happening within me… 

You know that feeling you want to say GOODBYE to everything? Like the past. I don’t want to dwell on it. If possible, I want to delete all the memories in the past especially the bad ones. But hey I am not asking to be amnesiac, it’s just as much as possible I want to be at least almost completely honest in this abode of mine.

I know I am OC, like I want to make things straight and unstained. You get what I mean? I always wanted to have a fresh start, all over again. I am so pissed off with all the mistakes, nuisance and over-exposures in my life. They’re getting beyond my nerves. I want to forget people who hurt me, things/situations which keep on punching my thoughts and ALL.

Well, I know the past is the reason who we are at the moment and I thank that. But I just want to be completely renewed. You know, something that will put me to rest. Even this post is totally absurd, I am talking with no sense of direction here. I am contented with what I have, to be honest, I really do, BUT I just want to be somehow opposite of what I had become before. That’s all.

And these feelings I am sharing to you know are the reasons why …. I avoided some people, I chose to decline offers, I aimed at establishing a low-profile and recently, I deactivated my 2 accounts on Facebook (while still completely existing in my so-called IdleAccount; still on FB but again, so lame and idle)

Sorry, I am having these absurd thoughts since the past months, weeks and days. I just need some enough air to breathe and space to spread my wings.

*slurp* *slurp*

Dear Lord,

I am contented and I have no regrets. Just let me choose another path. Send me some positive vibes 🙂 I love You always.

Your child ❤



My over-stressed look.



The Change I Get


Hi, this post is actually my first mobile blogging and I get to excite my nerves because you know me, my ideas don’t just sit around the corner and wonder.. err.. They upsurge to be shared! And mobile blogging is really convenient because like for this moment, thoughts just run down though I’m already in bed (and definitely tired) and I get to post this.

So much for that! I want to speak about “change” now… Well, I’ve been speaking about that certain word all the time and it means for me in three words: (1) open-mindedness (2) liberalism (3) adventure AND nothing’s gonna hold me back! This opening of the school year and btw, the end of summer, I want to reinvent myself by first and foremost be a low-profile college girl. Not inasmuch as I want to change every bit but I want to be more academic-oriented and less in extra-curricular activities; except that I am still into my tutorial jobs whether online, private or both and my sidelines (Buy & Sell Pre-loved clothes/Land Deal). Coming up with this resolution was REALLY REALLY HARD to consider that I am an active student ever since at being the leader all the time became my habit, my agendum and my passion. But above all, my family is my FIRST priority and this time, I want to help a lot in doing things that will suffice my family’s needs which include my effort to assist our business (little sari-sari store) and chores at home. After all, these are the LEAST things I can do in a sense of payback to my parents while I am still studying. Further, I also feel the need to be someone new in the eyes of the many because I want to lessen the guilt I have because giving too much time serving my organizations made me happy of course but less than that, made me guilty because I sacrificed my family and mama and papa’s getting old, I want to assist them as much as I can. But mostly, I’d get to relax my mind by thinking that I’ll never stop learning and exploring. Leaving the university limelight, I know and believe that this decision is good because Almighty God has guided me to clear my cloudy thoughts. To end, I may take other route and perhaps I’d only take a train rather than an airplane, at least if I may not see the world in a skyscraper view, at least, I’d see the luscious green fields of the countryside. 🙂

P.S. I’ll reduce the romance section in my story of which I’ll eliminate some, entertain a few ones and perhaps, just throw them all in a non-recyclable bin! Slow the fast life, forget the pain and laugh out loud! Enough that I am stupid. I won’t dwell anymore.
