Twitter User Made A List Of Products That *Left Us* Without Saying Goodbye
This pandemic made us miss a lot of things. With what feels like the whole world on pause, we've got nothing but time to reminisce about the past. *Ehem*
But it's not always about missing people, sometimes, it's also about missing food, especially the ones we didn't get to say goodbye to. Ikaw, aside from the discontinued Kornets, may namimiss ka pa ba?
Check out this thread made by Elvin Luciano (@elvinelvinelvin) on Twitter about the snacks that ghosted us in the past. Do you remember any of these?
Maggi Mami Noodles
It comes with superhero or Disney stickers! (That you accidentally cook sometimes LOL)

Before Coca Cola, there's Pop Cola.
2. POP COLA - A legitimate challenger to the Coke-Sprite-Royal empire along with Sarsi and Cheers Orange. Tapos biglang naging Coca-Cola na din sya. You're supposed to beat them, not join them! pic.twitter.com/0IRfzHnB5j— Elvin García Luciano (@elvinelvinelvin) June 17, 2020
Nesvita Cereal Milk Drink
It's like the Energen and Quaker Oats Cereal drink, but BETTER.
3. NESVITA - To be fair, nagpaalam siya haha. Breakfast you can drink, sabi ng unang commercial nya. Tapos nireposition na nakaka beautiful daw sabi ni Marian. Original flavor is supreme pero pwede na din yung sweet corn. Bear Brand cereal drink is no match pic.twitter.com/a8JHR65kvV— Elvin García Luciano (@elvinelvinelvin) June 17, 2020
Eaji Dip Snax
The OG *snax* that comes with different dips! It's so good, we wish San Miguel would bring it back.

Brown Cow Chocolate Syrup
Like our fave Hershey's chocolate syrup. Perfect for ice creams and milkshakes!
6. BROWN COW. Hindi ko alam kung paano talaga ito kinakain lol. Basta alam ko, laging may ganito sa ref ng mga pinsan naming mayaman. Tapos may fake yata na ganito tapos nilalagay sa skrambol pic.twitter.com/CeegWC38pJ— Elvin García Luciano (@elvinelvinelvin) June 17, 2020

Milo In Tin Cans
Basically, Milo powder but in TIN CANS! This one's better because you can still use the empty cans and be *resourceful*
Bazooka Bubble Gum
This classic gum has comic strips inside the wrapper! And it's pink!

10. BAZOOKA BUBBLE GUM. I'd like to think tumalino ako ng konti dahil sa free Bazooka Joe comic strips pic.twitter.com/REm5SgQTrO
Nestle Twin Milk and Soya Drink
It was a soya milk drink that was advertised by the Gutierrez twins and their father, with "Kakambal Sa Paglaki!" as the brand's tagline.

these sheets that exactly remind me of how I gushed in between my pillow and space you filled in the longing of my burned sorrow put smile to my sober face just like how a three year old receive her lollipop
i searched you everywhere and here you are laying down beside me in my imagination the walls that our screens built a boundary and an obvious message that says i can never have you because you wear clerical shirt and obviously you loved someone else before me
oh god, do I really want this forbidden love? that only exist in my imagination? that only exist through my words? would you, meine liebling, notice me and my art one second? because I am dying to say I love you.
A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender
Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.
Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.
It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.
Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
Before, sliding over the rainbows
Now, our hearts are bruised
Days once full of love and laughter
Became dawns of forfeited ever after
Smiles that bring ticklish sensations
Turned to cold question and answer
Figuring who would be the next instructor
The queen’s awake
Grappling to the happiness that the sorrow and sadness take
Going back to all the promises he couldn’t make
Poetry #2: YOUR VOICE
When you talk, your voice brightens my days. You provide me comfort in all the little things that you do. Your deep and mellow voice sends a tingling feeling inside me that makes me want to keep you in my life. I love talking to you every time, every day, every night and every minute if I could. You're someone just simply amazing.
