On the 25th of March, the most devastated news that it has been stated that Zayn Javadd Malik is leaving One Direction. The boy band that turned my life around and brought joy when I was at my lowest point. Many people might say, "Oh they're just a boy band, who cares!", well many of us fans DO care. It may seem as petty to you, but for us it was a gutted moment that we had to encounter and witness in the public eye. This date made history but it was something that it was too painful to live by. It seems a bit overreacting that "sad" is an understatement but these 5 boys just made an impact to many of their fans around the world. Don't get me wrong but I do respect his decision but yes it is still heartbreaking.
I was reading countless number of tweets on my timeline and what we can do now that is that to continue to be there for them. What struck me the most is that when other people who aren't as much fans of them still sending their word out to Zayn and us "directioners", "fans" as well. Thank you so much. As I am trying to sink this all in, I just want to thank One Direction for the people I've met, I've talked to in social media, especially in Twitter because of our fondness of this boy band. Everything we had to deal with despite the drama and any other nonsense we manage to cope everything up. We never know what would happen after this but in time I do hope there is a beam of light that shines through the dark (see what I did there?). In all seriousness, let us see and continue to support these boys like we always do.
We will miss you lots Zayn, and so the other lads as well. We love you no matter what and stay strong! X

I'm going to miss their photo shoots and what they do during photo shoots with silly pranks, antics, etc. (sigh)
Tune in for more of my posts and what I have been doing recently.
Before I get on to talking about how my trip in Singapore went, if you are a stan of One Direction as I am, I cannot
even to begin with what I had to go through with this whole trip.
Anyway, on the second day of our trip, I have found out that from
another Twitter account to another; they stopped over in Changi Airport on
the same day *fangirling*. (so basically I was kind of breathing the same air as
them but I heard that it was only Zayn , Louis, and Liam I think as I
try to recall but I was so emotional that day you have no idea. Haha)
(going back to the whole point of this blog post ) The last time I went outside of town was how many years ago in the States. Just about a few months back, my siblings and I wanted to go somewhere that is outside the Philippines. With my brother being the athlete in the family, he was one of the players chosen to play for a couple of baseball games in Singapore. Of course I cannot contain my excitement when the news was in and that the rest of us were coming along. It was a perfect time for us to visit there almost the end of November and the start of December because with all of my favorite stores are buzzing with all of the crazy sales that has been hoarded with a crowd of people buying and spending until there's no tomorrow (literally most shops were still open from dusk to dawn). From shopping, sightseeing, walking all the way from Bencoolen Hotel to shopping the high end stores in Orchard Road, and riding the rides in Universal Studios; it was a trip I would never forget that was worthwhile and became one of my highlights in 2014.
