ON TOKHANG

A few months ago, I witnessed a dead body lying in front of our barangay chapel. It was noontime, when the neighborhood heard a couple of “BLAMs”… (more…)

Haha. That is, if the owner of the Facebook profile who bashed me was indeed Sir Nathan Azarcon himself. Pardon me if I needed to dissect this chronologically. But it’s not everyday that you get the attention of someone popular in a very peculiar and unexpected way. LOL!  (more…)

Have you ever wondered why people are falling for romantic love songs, but probably never appreciate the person who wrote it as much as their works? or never realize how heartbroken they were when they wrote it?

They always think of them as sore losers. And however great it sounds, it kinda makes anyone feel bad when the only thing that’s awesome about you is the sorry song that you made famous because it came from your broken heart.

MY LIFE ACCORDING TO GOLDFINGER

Posted: January 25, 2014 in Confessions, Random

I promised myself I would do this in my blog. Here it goes. It’s a ‘post game’ from Facebook. Here are the rules:

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, answer these questions. Tag FRIENDS you think may be interested in doing this. You cannot use the artist the previous person used. Do not repeat a song title. Repost this as “my life according to (artist)“….

But what I planned to do is not only to put in the titles, but also to supply the media, music or video, and possibly the lyrics of each Goldfinger songs for each item. I am right now a little bit lazy to provide other descriptions or stories behind each of the songs… but I might add some any time soon. (more…)

If soulmates’ purpose were really like this, man, I got a lot of them then. Sigh.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soulmate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…” ― Elizabeth Gilbert

1 Million People March

Tax ng Ina Nyo!

I was there. I joined the ranks of the Teachers’ Dignity Coalition, which my mom is a member of during the march early in the morning, from Liwasang Bonifacio to the Centennial Clock in Luneta where all the other groups converged.

I can say, the crowd was composed of people from all walks of life. Only a portion of it came from the Party List members, the labor unions and other ‘militant’ groups who are usual participants of protests. But unlike the so-so, ordinary protest that you see regularly from the news, like 60-70% of the crowd here came from the middle class – friends, families, colleagues from work, yung mga tisoy at tisay, mga makikinis ang sakong, at alam mong kumakayod at sumasahod nang maayos para sa pamilya. There were even foreigners who joined in the march. Even the pets joined in! 🙂 

Given the unpredictable weather condition of the day, the PNP still estimated that the crowd that participated reached around 100 thousand.

If you are one of those who think that the people who joined here are only wasting their time, then you are totally mistaken. It was an event participated by very sensible individuals. You would hear talks from every corner from small groups of people composed of professionals, some are even coming from the elite sector, discussing how disgusted they are about the system of corruption which is the main cause of why a hundred thousands of people answered a simple Facebook event invitation. We are one in saying that we are sick and tired of all the pork barrel bullshit and the corruption that it brings to the country!

For those who were not able to attend but wanted to, you do not need to worry. I believe that there will be more of this. The succeeding reactions may not be done in the streets anymore, but I am pretty sure this will lead into the change that we have always wanted to happen. 

I believe in the reforms and I have faith in the people that demand the abolition of the Pork Barrel System. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t, would I, among the hundred thousand others?

Man-O’-War

Posted: May 26, 2013 in Confessions, Random

Ever wondered how a jellyfish deals with its life?

It’s just there in the middle of the ocean… floating… living but like a lifeless organism.

It just goes where the where the waves bring it.

Let this post be a reminder of how my way of living is right now. Well, at least that’s how I see it.

A life full of nothingness. Just living to make it through the next day. Each day starts and ends like it’s in a  vicious cycle.

However, for some reason, no matter how lost in the ocean of the fast life you feel like, somewhere along the way, a driftwood comes. You didn’t imagine one to arrive, nor did expect one to come in the scene – just right on time, but it does come.

(And mind you, they come in bunches!:)   – this one I added after a few things have transpired in the past week)

And before my mind floats away to bringing sense into this post, and ready myself to sleep, let me quote myself, from my yesterday’s wall:

To that person who always manages to knock some sense into me when selfishness tends to drive me out of line; my counterweight when I’m tipping off the edge.

Three points for you! :)))

Salamat!”

You may not know it. But what you told me just recently helped a lot more than what you think.

Stay being you. No matter how much you think it sucks. LOL! 🙂
