Paglimot sa Bangongot ng Nakaraan

Image
Walang akong magawa. Hindi rin ako inspired sa araw na ito. Pakiramdam ko wala namang kamangha-manghang nangyayari sa araw na ito. Naisip ko na wala din namang exciting na gagawin kundi ang humilata sa kama at tumingin sa kisame. Ito yung mga araw na kung hindi occupied ang utak ng isang tao ay dun din pumapasok ang mga nakaka "emo" na bagay sa mundo. Gaya na lang nang pag-alala sa nakaraan. Kadalasan mga malulungkot na aalaala.Ito yung moment na kung saan ginugunita natin na nasakta tayo, iniwan at bigla na lang tayong nalulungkot at manghihinayang. Minsan kapag sobra ang sakit na naransan nung nakaraan ay umabot tayo sa punto na iiyak tapos biglang marealize natin na tapos na pala ito. Parang tanga lang!
          Tumayo ako sa kinahihigaan ko at nag ikot sa buong hacienda bahay (kubo?) namin. Mag-isa lang ako. Wala si Mommy at Daddy (pasosyal!). Tahimik ang buong hacienda bahay (kubo?). Tanging si Diglet (ang aso ko) ang maingay na kumakahol sa bawat taong dumara…

Luha: Sa Duyan

Image
Habang nakahiga sa duyan na aking tambayan Nagmumuni-muni sa mga nangyari noong nakaraan Sa duyan umusbong pagiibigan na puro kasinungalingan Ngunit sa mismong duyan nangangarap na ako'y iyong balikan
Naalala mo pa noong una kitang niyaya Na sumabay sa indayog ng aking duyan at tayo ay magparaya Magiliw kang sumakay sabay hawak ang aking kamay Nangako kang ako'y samahan kahit duyan ay wala nang tibay
Ngunit sa paglipas ng panahon pagibig mo ay nagbago Ang dati mong sigla sa duyan ko ay naglaho Ang sabi mo sa akin pagod ka na at nahihilo pa Di naman kaya buntis ka aking sinta? Sagot mo ay "Oo" ngunit di ako ang ama.
Wasak ang puso nang iniwan mong nagiisa Sumama ka sa iba na di hamak ako ay mas gwapo pa Sana di na lang umasa na ikaw ay makakasama Luha ay umagos sa aking mga mata habang nagiisa sa duyan na nakatunganga.
Ang tulang nasa itaas ay kalahok sa patimpalak ni Tweety BIRD (Iya_khin) na pinamagatang Luha Mo sa Pakontest Ko.

Embarrasing

Image
My week ended with a blast, as in literally blast (lol). Last Saturday, we checked in at Dusit Thani Hotel with my former colleague for a birthday celebration. I thought most of us will go but unfortunately few were able to come. We had a great time talking, laughing, talking again and then laughing. The next day was great since we had the chance to go to the pool area where some of my colleague went swimming. Since I didn't bring my swimming trunks (Lols). Me and my other office mate decided to take some pictures while others are enjoying swimming.

My officemate and I decided to try the jump shot. We're on my third pose, when I hear a crack aweful sound. The last time I remember was I was holding my jeans together because it was torn from underneath. When I checked it, it was torn from the waisteline down to the my legs at the back. You can imagine my butt sticking out, luckily I'm wearing my best under garment that day. Bwahahaha..

Buti na lang may panulsi ang kasama ko…

A Letter to My Brother

Image
 MAKATI, Philippines -- Today, July 23, 2011 is my brother's birthday. His the eldest in the family. I can say that me and my brother have that "frienemies" kind of relationship when we were still kids. I believe his 2 years older so we basically almost grow together. What I really dont like about having an older brother is that you'll inherit every clothes, shoes and other stuff that your older brother doesn't wear or use. In short, tagapag-mana ng tira-tirang damit. However, in our case my parents make it sure that what my older brother have, I'll also get. Like one time our parents bought us this terno shirt and short. We have the same shirt (but different in color), same shorts (different in color), same shoes (different size..of course). Worst right? I am like a copy cat of my brother. Anyways, it doesn't really bother me as I always look up to my brother. He has been my idol aside from my father.
Anyways, since I am away from home and I can't b…

Ulan

Image
Bumuhos na naman ang ulan
Nakadungaw sa bintana nakatingin sa kalawakan
Minamasdan bawat patak ng ulan
Tinitignan bawat dampi ng ulan sa labi ng kalupaan

Naalala mo pa ba nung minsang umulan
Habang tayo ay naglalakad doon sa may simbahan
Bigla kang tumakbo akala ko ako ay iyong iiwan
Ngunit sa iyong pagtakbo hawak mo ang kamay ko at payong ay iyong binuksan

Kay sarap gunitain ang bawat alaala
Kahit sa mga araw na ito ikaw ay nasa bisig na ng iba
Masaya na ako sa panahong maulan ang paligid ko
Sa nagiisang payong mo ako pinasukob mo.

Ngayong wala ka na at maulan na naman
Di na nababahala kahit mabasa sa ulan
Dahil sa ngayon ako ay nagsasaya
Habang naliligo kapiling ang mahal kung kakosa

Kaya ang aking paalala
Kahit na bumuhas man ang ulan sa tuwina
Wag mabahala kahit na mabasa Dahil payong ng iba ay nakahanda
Ngunit kung ulan ay lumala at payong ay wala Di pa rin nababahala ang puso kung balisa Sapagkat ang araw ay sisikat ng dakila
At tanggalin ang lamig sa puso kong ulila

Signs That He's Just Not Into You

Image
I have a friend who really likes this guy and that every time the guy talks to her she thinks that the guy like her a lot. It seems to me that the guys is just being friendly and entertaining. However this girl friend of mine doesn't care at all. She really think and believe that the guy is really into her. Most of the time she so protective of the guy to the point of stalking the guy. She is really getting crazy over this guy. I almost slap her in the face just to wake her up from this madness. I just want to let her know that she is just wasting her time and effort with a guy who isn't worth her time. She deserves someone who will love her, right? right? And hopefully she'll awaken from her fantasies. Wake up my dear!
Anyway, I suggest my dear girlfriend to check and see the signs below if the guy is really NOT INTO YOU:
If he's not asking you out. If a man likes a woman, he can stop himself - he wants more. He wants to make it further. If he is atrracted to you, he …

My Life is like a Rubik's Cube

Image
My life is in chaos. Its not that obvious but lately I feel that I've been running to and fro searching for something I don't know. Sometimes I feel so alone and like nobody cares for me at all (I hate this feeling actually). I know this is just a state of mind but sometimes I can't resist the intensity of it. However, I tend to not soak myself into it as its not helping me as a person. I know that I am strong and I can do all things through God who strengthens me. I arrived home from work with a heavy heart. I really don't know why, but sometimes, I'm like this (yes! sometimes nag-eemote din ako).

Pagdating ko sa bahay, I immediately changed clothes and then rest for a while. Seated on the floor, staring at the open window, looking from a far. Yung tipong malayo ang tingin mo at malalim ang iniisip. Honestly, ang dami ko talagang iniisip. Ano nga ba iniisip ko sa mga oras na ito? Heto... I was thinking if the job that I have right now is what I really want to do f…

Dalawampung Kahanga-hangang Bagay na Nangyayari NGAYON

Image
Ngayon na ang tamang panahon. Ngayon mga kahanga-hangang bagay ang nangyayari sa buong mundo. Hindi man natin ito nakikita at nararamdaman, ngunit NGAYON maraming bagay ang hindi maipaliwanag.



Ngayon...

Mahigit kumulang sa 240 batang ipinanganak sa buong mundo.Isang kaibigan ang tumutulong sa kapwa kaibigan upang malampasan ang problemang pinagdadaraanan.Isang tao ang nag-iisip gaya ng kung ano ang iyong iniisip ngunit hindi pa nya ito nasasabi sayo.Dalawang tao sa inyong lugar ay nagmamahalan.Isang tao ang may problema sa kanyang timbang noong nakaraang taon na nakatayo sa timbangan at naka-smile.Isang batang babae ang nagsimulang humakbang upang matutong lumakad.Bawat tao sa isang relihiyon o grupo na may ibat-ibang paniniwala ay nasa loob ng simbahan, mosque, templo o bahay dasalan upang ipagdasal ang Kapayapaan sa Mundo.Dalawang magkakaibigan ang nagtatawanan kahit walang dahilan.Isang tao ang naglilinis ng kanyang ilong habang ang isang kamay ay nakahawak sa kinakaing tinapay.…

Love: is it Over? -- Eh Pano Yung Second Time Around?

Image
Napadaan ako sa Damuhan ni Bino at binasa ang kanyang post na Love: Is it Over?. Natamaan ako sa kanyang sinabi sa post na yun sa kadahilanang naranasan ko na din ang mga nabanggit nya not only once, not only twice but many times. Bobo kasi ako pagdating sa love. Give lang ako ng give. Minsan nakakalimutan ko na din yung mga bagay na dapat unahin. Love is blind nga siguro talaga. I mean not the love itself but maybe the people under the influence of being in love. Nakakaadik?
     Pero habang patuloy ako sa pagbabasa natanong ko din sa sarili ko pano yung tinatawag nilang "second chance"? Pano kung sa punto ng relasyon ninyo eh dumaan lang pala ito sa pagsubok? Pano kung sa maikling panahon na nararamdaman ninyo ang mga nabanggit ni Bino eh dumating din sa punto at marealize ninyo na mahal ninyo pala ang isa't-isa at di kayang mawala ito. Maniniwala ka ba sa isa pang pagkakataon o hahayan na lang na mawala ang mga bagay ma mahalaga sayo? Pano kung matagal na kayong m…

Mga Gawaing Pamatay Oras

Image
Hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit sa tuwing sobrang busy ako sa work doon din gumaga ang imahinasyon ko sa pagboblog. Ang daming bagay akong gusto iblog kapag na pepressure ako ngunit hindi ko naman magawa dahil sa uunahin ko ang aking trabaho. Naeexcite akong umuwi agad para mag blog. Pero tuwing dumarating ako sa aking munting tahanan nawawala ang gana ko sa pag blog.  Nawawala ang motivation ko at napapalitan ito ng pagod at antok. Tila  ba kapag tumititig ako sa kama at unan ko ay parang tinatawag nila ako upang humimlay na at ipabukas na ang pagboblog. Naiinis ako. Hindi na tama to. 
Ngayon, wala akong ginagawa sa opisina. Ito yung mga araw na hindi ako masyadong pressure at busy. Hindi occupied ang isip ko ngunit wala din namang gana sa pag blog. Nababaliw na ata ako. Naghanap ako ng mga bagay na gagawin kesa tumunganga lang dito ng walong oras. Nag isip ako ng mga bagay na pwedeng pagkaabalahan. Mga bagay na makakatulong sa pag angat ng aming kompanyan at ekonomiya ng Pilipinas…

Paalam Na

Image
Ikaw ang nagbigay sa akin ng saya Sa tagal nating nagsama, ikaw lang at wala nang iba Akala ko ikaw at akoy magkasama panghabang buhay Ngunit lahat ng bagay ay may katapusan pala
Mahigit anim na taon ika'y aking karamay Sa hirap at ginhawa ikaw ang kaagapay Puso ko'y hindi nagsisisi Na ikaw ang pinili na walang pag atubili
Ngunit isang araw biglang naglaho Ang matamis na pag-ibigan ay tinapon mo ng malayo Na walang pagaalintana Ako'y iyong binigo
Nagtatanong kung totoo ba ito? Ang sagot mo lang ay tumataginting na "Oo". Di ko kinaya ang totoong sagot mo Ngunit wala akong magagawa kung ikaw ang lumayo.
Hindi kita masisi kung sa kanya mo nakita Ang mga bagay na kailan man di mo nakuha Gusto kita ipaglaban sa mapang agaw na kapalaran Pero hindi tama sapagka't ikaw ang lumisan.
Pinili mo ang kanyang mga bisig Kumpara sa aking totoo na pag ibig Wala akong materyal na bagay Ngunit meron pa akong dignidad at pagmamahal na iyong kaagapay
Ngunit masaya na ako Na nagdesisyon kang lumayo Napaisi…

Ang Bebe

Image
FIRST SERVING: HONESTY
Sa isang di kalayuang bukirin ay naninirahan ang dalawang magkakapatid na si Juan at Pedro. Kasama nilang tahimik na nainirahan ay ang kanilang Lolo Jose at ang mga alagang hayop nito partikular na ang mga paboritong inaalagaan ni Lolo na mga bebe. 
Naging mabuting apo at katulong sa bukirin sina Jose at Pedro. Si Jose ay isang masunuring bata na may takot kay Lolo Jose. Kapag nagagalit kasi si Lolo ay para itong bulkang sumabok na naghahasik ng maiinit na lava. Si Pedro naman sa kabilang dako ay isang bata pilyo at mapang-asar kay Jose.
Isang araw habang naglilinis ng bakuran si Pedro, habang pinuputol nya ang mga damo gamit ang "grasshook" ay hindi nya namalayan na isang bebe pala ang nakawala sa kulungan at dumaan sa kanyang harapan. Ang bebe na ito ang isa sa pinakapaborito ng kanyang Lolo. Habang patuloy sa paglilinis si Pedro ay ganun din naman ang pagdaan ng bebe sa kanyang harapan ng sa di inaasahang pangyayari ay natamaan nya ang ulo nito. De…

6 Quick Ways to Calm Down

Image
A friend of mine told me that I show symptoms of axiety and depression. I ask him how? why? He just laugh and told me that he can see it in my face. I was worried and alarmed because what he told me means something.
Then I start evaluating myself, like things that I usually do, food I ate, people I talk to, places I go to... everything. I found out that I worry too much about everyday life events with no obvious reasons. Sometimes, when I hear a news or an information from someone and I know that I will get affected by it, I immediately panic about it and never calm down. There are also instances than I easily melt down when I open my email and found 100 mesages in my mailbox that I need to read and answer.
So, I find some ways on how to calm ourselves down when melt down strikes. I always turn to these when I dont have time to phone a friend or call my parents asking for comfort or words of encouragement.

So here's my calming tip:

1. Let the world disappear

Harry Potter Moments

Image
This post wont share any spoilers from the upcoming and final film due out next week. Most of us are excited to see what's gonna happened in the final battle between good and evil, though most of us already knew what happened because we already read the book. This post will focus more on the great moments from J.K. Rowling's glorious epic.
This is my personal observation on the film's greatest moments that makes me moved, inspired or brought me to tears.
The Chosen One Harry Potter lacks purpose at the beginning of the film.he felt unloved, abused and force to sleep underneath the stairs. Living with his relatives makes him realize that his life is meaningless, like nobody cares. Until Hagrid breaks the truth and tells him that he's actually wizard. This moment makes Harry wonder and his young face becomes emotional.
Sometimes its hard for us to accept the reality. Its hard for us to believe that we are the chosen one especially when we came from a very difficulty s…

I finally gave in...

Image
I finally gave in... I finally bought a DSLR camera. Why bought a DSLR? Wala lang.. gusto ko lang.. May reklamo ka? Hahaha..Joke!

Anyways, after taking some samples I am very pleased and satisfied with it. Not that heavy and its very handy. This is a beginner camera from Nikon. Secret na lang ang model. Nakakahiya naman baka may magsabi na bakit ito binili ko dapat yung mahal. Eh ito lang kaya ng pera ko. Waahhh...

Ok, here you go. Heto yung mga kuha ko. No edits. No photoshop. No lightroom. Not Yet! I'll just post the very first few pictures that I took. Para at least alam ko kung may pagbabago ba sa kuha ko in the coming days. Parang Project 365 lang diba.


 This is the very first shot I had. The moment I take the camera out of the box, my very first subject is our our salt water aquarium. That's Survivor (Tomato Clown fish). Why Survivor? Dahil sa dami ng isda ang nilagay sa aquarium na yan... Siya lang ang nabuhay. Medyo mahiyain pa siya sa lagay na yan. Kaya pag pasensyah…

Upcoming Prequels and Sequels

Image
I love watching movie either in a big screen or I could just download it in my laptop. It doesn't really matter if it's an old movie or a new release film. I also dont have a specific like in terms of what type of movie to watch. As long as it's an interesting movie then, I'm in.

I am so excited to know that some of the movies I love to watch had sequels and prequels. Some of the movies were confirmed for their sequel and some are still on the planning stage.

Avatar 2 and 3
An official release from Fox has confirmed that Cameron's next projects will be Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, shot back to back with planned release dates of December 2014 and 2015.

And we quote Fox Chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman: "AVATAR is not only the highest grossing movie of all time, it is created universe based on the singular imagination and daring of James Cameron, who also raised the consciousness of people worldwide to some of the greatest issues facing our planet... We had no …

You've Got Mail #3: Making the Right Choice

"There comes a time in the spiritual journey when you start making choices from a very different place. And if a choice lines up so that it supports truth, health, happiness, wisdom, and love, it's the right choice." - Angele Arrien (born 1940); Anthropologist Hey guys! Howdy?

Pigsa

Image
Oh pigsa kong nilalangit
Bakit ka nakasabit sa aking pwet
Di naman kita pinipilit
Na dyan ka pa kumapit

Bakit ka ganyan?
Hinding hindi ko inaasam
Sa tuwing ikaw ay minamasdan
Ako'y nalulungkot at nagdaramdam

Sa panahon na ako'y sobrang busy
Ikaw naman ay masayang nakangisi
Sa aking pwet ikaw ay nakakabit
Naninilaw at pagkalagkit-lagkit


Sana mawala ka sa pisngi ng aking pwet
Kasi nakakaabala ka sa pagsayaw ko to the tune of "dirty bit"
Sana sumabog ka na
At tuluyan nang mawala.
