Sweet Escape

•20 November, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I am extremely excited. This is the first time Rod and I would go into an out-of-town trip. And we’re heading to Boracay!!!!

Not really a big fan of the beach, the sun, or the sea. But this trip is making me excited.

Boracay!

Boracay!

My friends knew that i am not really a sweet nor romantic person. I rarely enjoy something like this before. But i think, when a person grows older, their preferences would change too.

I read somewhere that you’ll get to know a person even better when you travel together. Maybe that is true. I call our trip Sweet Escape since we both have a very stressful life. I keep on telling him it’s some sort of a consolation that we would escape whatever burdens we currently have – even for 3 days.

Let’s see what Boracay has to offer. 🙂

Happy

I rarely blog (write) recently.

Thus only proves that when I am happy, my mind is stuck with only 1 thing and that’s it.

Yes, I am happy, contented, and in love. I think my social media status says it all… I haven’t been happy like this since I cannot remember when.

The feeling is not only being in love, but gratefulness. I never thought I was living in misery until I realised that everything was over.

I am  a changed person now. I am not the half-sober-lightning-evil-bitch any more.

I would like to keep myself this way.

 

Isang Liham Mula sa Kaibigan

Hello, friend?Hoy friend,

Hindi dahil ngumingiti siya kapag kasama ka niya e gusto ka na niya. Minsan, masyado ka lang ilusyonada. Siguro kasi kakapanood mo ng Glee, Awkward o kung ano pang TV series na pinaniniwala tayong laging may pag-asa ang tagilid na pag-ibig. Oo, tagilid, dahil isa siyang panginoong-may-lupa at isa kang aliping sagigilid.

Minsan, may mga tao lang talagang mababait. Ngingitian at tatanguan ka pag nagkita kayo, tatabihan ka sa upuan kapag lunch, itetext ka ng “Saan ka na, anong ginagawa mo,” at magyeyes lang nang magyeyes sa lahat ng gusto mo. Pero hindi ibig sabihin noon e gusto ka niyang maging syota. Masyado lang siyang mabait. Huwag ka munang magdaydream, masakit iyon kapag hindi nagkatotoo.

Minsan, gusto ka lang talaga niyang makasama kasi hindi corny ang jokes mo, palagi kang nanlilibre, hindi ka amoy putok at wala kang bad breath. Maraming dahilan kung bakit gusto ka niyang makasama palagi. Sabihin na nating mga 756 reasons. At isa lang dun ay yung gusto ka niyang maging girlfriend. Huwag magpakalunod dito, may 755 pang ibang dahilan. Parang pagkapanalo sa lotto ito. Mas posible pang tamaan ka ng kidlat kesa makuha mo ang gusto mo. Sabi nga ng nanay ko, para mong pinapana ang buwan.

May mga taong ipinaglihi sa kutsara. Stir lang ng stir. Paasahin ka sa wala. Alam niyang gusto mo siya, at gusto niya iyon kasi may ego massage iyong naidudulot. Syempre hindi niya iyon aaminin. Gagamitin pa niya iyon para i-affirm ang katotohanang hot shot talaga siya. Sasabihin niyang gusto ka niya, yayayain kang magsine, magsesex kayo at gagawing profile picture sa Facebook ang photo n’yong dalawa, pero wala lang ‘yon. Bored lang siya at walang magawa, at hindi available ang primary friends niya ng araw na iyon.

May mga tao ring cryptic. Pamysterious kumbaga. Mag-uupdate sa Facebook at Twitter ng lyrics ng kanta, o kaya e huhugot ng quote galing kay Nicholas Sparks. Huwag agad isipin na ikaw ang pinatutungkulan ng mga iyon. Ayos lang kiligin, pero maglaan ka ng oras para mahimasmasan. Huwag agad mag-update ng post na sumasagot sa status message niya. Subukan munang magkape para kabahan ng kaunti. Hindi siguro ito sinasabi sa iyo palagi ng mga tunay mong kaibigan, pero sometimes the world is not about you. May mga taong postmodern lang talaga, gusto lang nilang gawin ang isang bagay kasi why not.

Isang gabi, pwedeng sabihin niyang mahal ka niya, subalit huwag itong ituring na Gospel truth. Huwag muna itong isulat sa diary. Kung isa kang sigurista, itext siya sa umaga para iverify ang lahat ng kanyang soundbites na hindi ka pinatulog nang gabing iyon. Icorroborate ang information sa kanyang malapit na kaibigan, at kung kinakailangan ay magmultiple sourcing. Huwag idepende ang feelings mo sa iyong mga sariling pagmamaganda. Harapin ang katotohan at maging matapang because weakness is so mainstream.

Kung malaman mong isang malaking kahibangan mo lang ang lahat, huwag mag-alala, kasi hibang ka naman talaga. Lilipas din iyan. Ikain mo na lang. Huwag ka na ring makinig kay Adele at magpost ng mga status message na parang naging kayo talaga, baduy ‘yun.

Kung hindi mo siya maalis sa isipan mo, isipin ang lahat ng kanyang pangit na attributes: Lagi niyang napagpapalit ang letters p at f kapag nagsasalita, favorite TV show niya ang Jersey Shore at favorite word niya ang irregardless.

Sikaping kumbinsihin ang sariling ayos lang sa’yo na bitawan na siya. Nakaya mo namang kumbinsihin ang sariling mong may pag-asa kayo, di ba.

Nagmamahal pero naiinis din kasi tanga ka,

Me

EDSA: 26th Year of Ignorance

•24 February, 2012 • 1 Comment

Morrissey – Suedehead

“I am so sickened to know…”

 

I stopped what I was doing at work to write this post, which is so very unusual to me. If I let this moment pass, I might forget what I was thinking.

***

Tomorrow is the 26th celebration of the so-called EDSA.

EDSA: 26 Years of IgnoranceUp to now, I really don’t see what changed for 25 years. Maybe I am too young to see what horror the Martial Law did to our country. But with the mythical freedom that everyone assumes, you would barely see that for 26 years, there’s no improvement.

 

I was often asked what I did for my country. Have I done something to keep ranting?

 

I am proud to tell everybody who asked that I am an honest taxpayer. These taxes are what the cunning government officials would corrupt. The money that what we are paying came from staying up late at work, being endangered while working, and even going to work while there’s bad hurricane in Manila.

 

For 26 years, have you felt that this country improved?

EDSA: 26 Years of Ignorance

What this so-called freedom produced are cunning businessmen who have found loopholes with the 1987 Constitution and keep on finding ways how to funnel money out of their consumers. Was out lifestyle like this during Martial Law?

 

If we check the lists of cities around the country that are improved a lot and have been flourishing, we would notice that these cities are the ones with the ruthless government officials. Take for example Davao City; this city is known for their mayor who does not really care what other people think. This is their town, abide their laws. This goes the same in Marikina and Makati. Filipinos are known to be hard-headed and we need someone who could discipline us.

 

We may have this freedom of speech since during the Martial Law; men were killed by telling the truth. This is the only good thing that this EDSA celebration gives. Nothing else.

 

I paid my dues, the government officials elected by my countrymen is not doing their job. If we keep on trying to pull ourselves up, these people are pulling us down. Even our president have not done anything, at all.

 

The ones who hated the Martial Law are the country’s most corrupt government officials. It was not the people. You cannot say that majority of the people were there in EDSA, that’s merely 2% of the population. Now, there are less-educated children who would not understand their history and would be able to change it.

EDSA: 26 Years of Ignorance

This is what you are celebrating: your children’s ignorance. Very well done.

An Open Letter to the President of the Philippines

Taking Back Sunday – Liar

—-

“…it takes one to know one.”

An open letter to the President of the Philippines:

I am proud that I did not vote you as my president. I picked someone better than you who could have done reforms for the government without blaming other people, nor trampling other people’s business.

An open letter to the President of the Philippines

With 2 years on the position, what have you achieved? You keep on promising a “BETTER FUTURE” to your constituents but where is it? It would take some time for changes to take effect, as what the saying goes; but how long these hungry and homeless people have to wait before they could see these changes?

Do you want to know why I did not vote for you? Mr. Aquino, you were such a big joke. And until now, I still find that you are such a clown.

Have you ever created laws about anything at all? Your cabinet members’ keeps on feeding you information. And what are you doing, dating? Staying up late and playing a gaming console? Looking for a luxury car? If my president only considers himself, then we should know where this country is going.

One of the weirdest thing, you keep on lambasting the so-called corrupt officials but your own cabinet members have their own graft and corruption cases. Like what the elder people says: clean your own backyard first. Oh wait, of course you would not know that. You never cleaned anything in your life, I suppose. And this is the first time you would try to clean in your life by catching the big fishes.

You were supposed to be intelligent, being schooled in the most prestigious schools in the country. But can we eat your achievements? We need actions and long-term goals with the solutions to our countries problems. Where are you?

Why do you keep on talking about Chief Justice’s impeachment case? The Judiciary and the Executive branches of the government are separate and no one, let me repeat, NO ONE should meddle in their affairs. The Senate is already doing its job, so please do yours.

Like what you have done being a congressman and a senator, YOU HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING.

Please, spare us the bullshit and work like what the majority of the people paying you are doing.

Sincerely,

Honest Tax Payer of the Philippines

Thank You, Bronte!

I was watching an early evening news and in the middle of seeing how sad this world is, there was this 7-year old girl who amazed me.

Thank You, Bronte!!

Meet Bronte Henfling, a daughter of wonderful parents who started a project called Toy Drive. What is amazing for this little girl, she realizes how important toys are for kids.

She is in the Philippines just for couple of weeks since her parents are part of Bourne Legacy crew and she already have a huge heart for these Typhoon Sendong victims. What she did is impressive and refreshing – knowing how bad the news are everyday.

Thank you, Bronte!!! Our children would feel how it is to be a kid again. 🙂
