Inmates in Cebu, Philippines






Since I don’t have that much time to write a new blog with lots of words in it, I chose to present to you the pride of the Philippines. Even though they are so called as the “law-breakers”, they have made the most of their stay in the cell, showcasing their talents to the whole word.

They started to be known with their exercise routine with asynchronous movements. And from there, they started to make a music video of dance using some popular songs such as Soulja Boy, I Need A Hero and a whole lot more (their performances are scattered in the pages of Youtube) and one of this is the Thriller by the late Michael Jackson.

Since then, they have become popular as they represent the discipline and the unity people outside never have. Enjoy watching.

Don't Stop Believing



This video is a real fun. I saw this n my facebook account and was linked by a friend—Ash. You should watch the video. :)

Note: the video is cropped.:(

There's a Blood in Your Coffee

I came across this disturbing video about the Nestle. It was posted last year but I didn’t know anything of this scandal. Is this true?

"I will not comment anything at all"

Kring and I had our usual dinner together. We always had that kind of bond in food (LOL) and I really love the idea of her and me in a dinner date :D As we were about to give grace, she paused and flashed me a huge smile. I asked her why she did that and said, “Because we have lots of food” then grins at me afterwards :) She’s a food addict by the way. So after we finished everything, we went home. I decided to walk home since it’s just a couple of blocks away. The night was gloomy and the wind is sooo cold. Then I met the worse creature—cockroach. Eeeee. Not a fan really.

Well, I don’t have any updates on my not so boring life. I have one! But it is an honest observation…

People have the most complex body structure compared to other animals. And so, it is believed to be that we humans came last among all the living creatures. As to my own observation, humans are very complicated even with the way we act. It’s so difficult to read someone else’s mind. I even ended up being viewed as the mean girl. I was just commenting on how this girl looks like I did with others. We were having our pictures taken alright. Then I said how she looks not-that-good about her make-up and all that. Months after that, she said to me that she didn’t like what I said to her and had seen it as something negative. Pfff. Too bad for me I guess.

I promised that from this day forward, I will not comment anything at all. I don’t know how they will take is so, my mouth is now zip.

Growing Up is Very Hard



I’m 20. I’ve been telling that thing over and over again here in my blog. And here I am, writing it all over again. Why? Just read on and you’ll be enlightened.

One of the things people (women usually) wanted to be is to look like a teenager—slim, thin, and younger looking. Who wouldn’t? What are all those cosmetic products and surgeries—such as buttocks—are there for if the human race is not striving to look young, right?

I’ve been told by my fourth grade teacher that I will have no problems with my face—that means no pimples and if there is, it will be minimal. I was flattered. And for years, I have no severe pimple problem. I’m just lucky I guess.

Haiti Aftershock



The death in Haiti is rapidly increasing. There was a tumultuous aftershock earthquake that has taken place yesterday. This happening is the saddest thing that had happened for the year 2010. Read full story here.

I won’t be surprised if the people from Haiti would come to hate the place and flee to seek safety elsewhere. I remember how grave it was for the Philippines during the Ondoy typhoon came and destroyed our country’s capital city—Manila. Bodies were everywhere, houses were filled with mud, cars were all over the streets, and death and the smell of decaying bodies could be felt even from the other part of the country.

I pray for those who are suffering from the earthquake and to those who are helping the Haiti people right now. May God bless them

I Found Her

I haven’t seen my friend Charmaine for more than 5 years now. Wait, I guess for almost a year now? I remember seeing her once in the mall and had a few chit-chat with her parents. Once in a blue moon, I remember her and Laizza when we were in our elementary days. We were like the 3 kids that can never be separated. We even had a shower together in Charmaine’s parent’s bathroom. I even thought that maybe I could hook up with her older brother (the way movie scenes are formulated) since he’s smart, tall, dark, handsome and kind somehow—although we never had the chance to talk that long, just hi and a few smile. We were the three girls who ended up splitting when high school came.

The Gays and the Lesbians



I am the kind of person who doesn’t have stay much of my time longer in a social networking site unless I’m not doing anything. All I do is update my status, read a few posts, comment on those things that made me smile and nod.

A few days before I wrote this post, I came across a change of relationship status on Facebook and was shock to see one of my friends changing his status from Single to In a Relationship with yada yada yada. It really struck me and it made me smile. And just today, I came with his post saying: I already found him. It was some what like a horoscope that predicts that this year, he will find true love.

Death


Death is inevitable. It is ubiquitous. And we can never say that money has the power to save us from that end, nor the goodness of one’s soul.

I recently watched the movie Law Abiding Citizen and was disturbed by what I saw. It seems to me that the movie was all about killing people. Though it rooted from the barbaric death of the wife and daughter of Clyde Shelton, it then became a chain of vengeance after 10 years of idleness and preparation. It was gruesome and unthinkable. And all that was left was for me to keep watching, covering my eyes on certain scenes.

The killing of people in that movie made me think how death can consume one’s own life. More than once, I experienced death in my family. It was an obscene incident that still haunts me. And just as I think how certain things happen because God has a purpose on it, it made me confused all the more.

Untitled


Just a few hours before January 15, we had a talk. It was a nonchalant conversation over the phone. I asked her how things are running now. I don’t think how I got the courage to ask her those things. Maybe because it was the first conversation we had for almost a month now. Or was it because she doesn't want to reach out? I simply do not know.


The more I think about how we are so focused on our own lives, the more I realized how far we are from each other. I’m her opposite, although not quite. But certain things such as the clothes we wear to the way we talk make me see how big our differences were. It is inevitable to see us falling apart. But that happened in much later years.

Naging Mahirap

I have a fun time this day. Although I miss my phone so much, things such as Naging Mahirap of Manny Villar made me smile (Last Song Syndrome).



The lyrics are below

Naging Mahirap

Nakaligo ka na ba sa dagat ng basura?
Nag-Pasko ka na ba sa gitna ng kalsada?
Yan ang tanong namin,
Tunay ka bang isa sa amin?

Nalaman mo na bang mapapag-aral ka nya?
Tutulungan tayo para magka-trabaho?
At kanyang plano'y magka-bahay tayo?

Si Villar ang tunay na mahirap.
si Villar ang tunay na may malasakit.
Si Villar ang may kakayahan
At gumawa ng sariling pangalan.

Si Manny Villar ang magtatapos
ng ating kahirapan।




Lost my Mobile Phone

I am one of the owners of ancient Nokia phones. Ancient since the type of phone that I used to own is now obsolete. Used to. Well, it got lost while I was riding a jeepney going to school. I am quite certain that the driver took it. I know it’s bad to point your finger to someone but come to think of it, who else would it be when I am in the passenger seat alone with him?

I was texting and all of a sudden, my phone was nowhere to be seen. I have a poor memory and I can’t remember where I put it; maybe the seat next to the driver? But I am very certain that it was with me during the first couple of minutes while riding the jeepney. I tried to call it but miraculously, it can’t be reached. Or maybe, someone took it. I don’t know.

I’m so down thinking that all of my friends’ and relatives’ contact numbers were all there and there alone. :(

So I don’t have new updates for you guys except for that little blunder. I need a phone for the JOB FAIR this February! T_T

Midwives


In our Philosophy class, our teacher made us watch a movie called Midwives. It’s a story of a midwife Sibyl who had an extraordinary devotion to her job. It’s not a job to her. It’s a kind of passion, helping the pregnant women. She even neglected her daughter since she’s always out with her patients. When Coney (the daughter) had a boyfriend, she wasn’t even there to check her. She never even sleeps.

Year 2010


Thanks to my new followers as well as to my cyber friends I will visit your blogs if have the time I’m touched by all your comments and it made me want to squeal with laughter. Hope to hear more of you. With great thanks and greetings of Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from me to yours, have a blessed year. God is truly inspiring each and every one of us to be good. I feel it. And it feels good.

My hugs and kisses goes to you. God bless us!:D

Nightmarish Christmas


The celebration of New Year and Christmas is now over and I am back once again to school, job, and endless nights of paper works. During the second day of my stay at home, my father and I had a quarrel. Well, he was shouting (again) for our incompetence to help him at household chores. We were in our room that night when he was shouting and Mitch (my brother) immediately went outside the room to wash the dishes. I was left doing some paper works when he started kicking things, including my laptop charger. I was so enraged that I shouted at him as well. It wasn’t an adorable move but I just hate him for everything. For all those times that he kept me in the dark, for hurting me even when I was a little kid; I just burst out. He was somehow speechless and can’t even look me in the eyes, coward. We spent the entire day not talking.

Happy Day



December 11, 2009. That marked the natal day of my friend Kristine Aspacio-Reyes. It was a hard week for us four (Kim, Yang, Kai, and I) since all the possible gifts and other surprises had been done to our other friends. But since Kring is ALWAYS busy with her school activities, we decided to inform her firsthand of our planned dinner date. And since we had different things to do—school and church activities, family days, suitor’s date, and others (wonder what that is :P)— I was a little bit excited about the whole thing. :D

"Your presence is not that felt"


Time came when we were asked to give out letters to our classmates for all the good things we experienced on them. For me, it was the highlight of the retreat since through this, we can give thanks, encouragement as well as suggestions to all the people we like and even dislike.
