Things We Have In Common

When I became an elder sister, I was still confused as to how a big sister should behave. I was 6 years old at that time and everything went different the moment my sister came. I was no longer the center of attention and my parents were busier than usual.

I was a bad sister

When I reached the puberty stage, I must say that I was a bad sister to her. I don't know, I just hated her for no valid reason. I was in the peak of my b*tch mode.

There was one time, I remembered there was a power outage in our area. It was around 6 in the evening. I encouraged her to play with me for a pillow fight. I do not have anything offensive in mind or purpose.

The play was fun at first but I became too aggressive and hit her on her face almost knocking her down. She cried when I hit her on her face, she wanted to take her revenge but I was too big as her competitor.

I ran towards the room and close the door. She kept banging against the door crying with frustrations and I was there laughing the entire moment. Mom learned about the play-turned-to-fight and scolded me.

I admit I was a harsh sister to her. You wouldn't expect us to be so sweet and friends the whole time. I just like to tease her.

However, as I mature, I learned to adjust and to be more understanding to my little sister. I should be responsible and should take care of her in the absence of our mother. That's when we realized that we have so many things in common:

Book genres

When I was in college, I learned to love books. Most especially in our literature subject. Our professor encouraged us to read books that would create a big impact on our perspectives in life.

However, I realized that I don't prefer to read those writing styles that are poetic. Aside from its order, it's harder for me to understand. No doubt, we share the same sentiments about it.

We both love to read teenage fiction, supernatural, and psychological books.

We both read these books:

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Brida by Paulo Coelho

We have read all of these books and whenever one gets ahead of reading it, we make sure that we don't spoil each other. We surely created a great bond for this hobby.

Food preferences

My sister is not someone who gets excited about a food trip. She's just a light eater. She only eats as to how her brain tells her to continue or not. Even when she's having her PMS (Pre-menstrual syndrome) she doesn't have cravings so when I ask her what she wants to eat she will just shrug. She only eats what's available and doesn't really crave something.

However, we do share something similar in food preference. We both love to eat Jollibee spaghetti. I mean, who wouldn't right? Their spaghetti is classic and this serves as our comfort food all the time.

I crave Jollibee spaghetti mostly during my PMS times. Whenever I crave it, that's when she feels excited because she gets her chance of eating it too for free.

Movie genres

Back in college, that's when I learned to use the flash drive. I learned to copy movies from my classmates and watch them with my sister on my laptop.

We both love to watch Kdrama or American series particularly the crime/thriller ones. We want to engage ourselves in the series and determine who's the real killer.

This was also when I started to write articles about "Mark of A Killer" which I truly enjoyed sharing here.

Aside from the crime/thriller genres, we both like to watch Romance Comedy film. The top of our list is Just Go With It. Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's tandem is superb. You laugh and fall in love at the same time.

Music Taste

Back in the mid-2000s, Colbie Caillat, Taylor Swift, David Archuleta, The Script, Coldplay, Maroon 5 are among those we are die-hard fans too. We both have similarities in music taste especially if these tracks play in our sound system.

Dog lovers

The family never had a pet dog ever since I was born. When we moved into our own house, some cats visit to ask for food. Our father befriends them and treats them as our own pets since then. So we were cat persons at first.

When I got the job in Davao, someone gave me a puppy. I named him Yuki. He was half Shih-Tzu and Japanese Spitz. However, Yuki left us after 3 months. He left because of a distemper. We were so heartbroken after.

The moving on process came a long way but after a year, we had Sunny. She gives sunshine to the house. She's the life of the party.


I have shared similarities of us about the things we like or share in common. However, we do also have:

Pet peeves

I and my sister grew up introverted although she's lesser than I am. Whenever we go outside to buy groceries and stuff, one thing we don't like is those people who start a conversation with us out of the blue.

It seems to us that they don't value or respect privacy. Those guys who casually open up and ask your digits. That's a no-no for us. Pervs.

Feeling ko ganun ata talaga na kapag mga bata pa eh talagang mortal enemy natin mga kapatid natin. Mala aso't pusa lang ang peg. Pero sa amin ng kuya ko siya talaga ang mabait. Basta ako yung malditang hindi papatalo. Hahaha. Naalala ko yung mga away namin noon. Tapos ending magkakabati kasi magiging partners in crime kapag papaluin na ng nanay ko. Yung nagtag team na kami bigla para nanay namin yung pagtataguan namin 🤣

Nakakainggit naman ng may kapatid na babae. Only girl ako eh, panganay pa. Kaya never spoiled and i always feel like I have to be responsible with everything especially when mom passed and dad remarried. Naging obligasyon ko na mga kapatid ko.

Life would have been a bit lighter if I have a sister. A big sis or a lil one. ☺️☺️

I think it's normal for us to fight with our younger siblings when we're little. I always did with them. After we grow up is when we see the need to protect them.

I agree. We fight every day when we were younger but as we age, we matured and learned to compromise and discuss things in order.

When some guy from Davao started to chat with you on Facebook, that guy must be a perv too. In fact, he is the ultimate perv of all! Don't get too complacent with that guy, he is the most wicked dude you'll ever meet! No matter how handsome he is... don't ever trust him!

I'm just trying to make you laugh Lil Sis. I can't stop thinking of you, and how you're really doing these past few days.

This is funny and a reality at the same time, as elder child, we've always found ourselves being a bad brother/sister especially when we no longer be the center of attraction to our parent, of course they would have to shift the attention to the little lad, and sometimes scold us for the little lad. I could remember when my little sister came, because she was the only female in our midst, she was always showering with gifts and everyday chocolate while we the eldest had none. But as we grew older we realize we had to be that good brother and protect her.

That's a great realization. When we were younger, kids are self-centered so when the attention shifts to the other we tend to get jealous right away. But as we mature, we become responsible and understanding to each other. 😁
