Buhay Talaan ni Felipe - 2

Mamaalam, tala kong may ngiti, saglit lamang, may huling habilin, sa gitna ng yong paglalakbay, sa dako mong ihihimlay dalhin ang payapa't pangakong wagas. Patawad. May lunas pa araw nananamlay mong diwa s'yang may gamay ng malay mong tilang hiram. Itong minamataa, daang tinitimbang, dala, tang kong alay. Mamaalam sa mundong kay lupit, sadya kayang nilihis sa pait. Sa gitna ng yong paghihimlay, manlako kang maghihintay. Dalhin sa paaglitis. Taglay ng tamis. Paalam. ["Alay," Aia de Leon]

This is frustrating.

Insomnia sa Makiling street

Habang lumalangoy sa kadiliman ng silid
Habang natutulala sa liwanag ng buwan
Habang napapasilip sa mundong binabantayan ng bintana
Habang natutulog ang kamunduhan

Habang hinihintay ng aso ang pagsalubong sa araw
Habang namamasyal sa kalsada ang mga kaluluwa
Habang umiipon ang hamog sa ibabaw ng mga kotche
Habang naglalaro ang mga gamu-gamo sa mga bukas na lampara

Habang naghahalinhinan ang mga hilik
Habang ginagambala ng lamok ang aking tenga
Habang nagpaparami ang mga pusang kalye
Habang kumakanta ang mga palaka

Habang magdamag ang makina ng bentelador
Habang nagbabanta ng ulan ang langit
Habang pinipilit ng mga isdang pumikit.
Habang naglalaban ang lamig at init.

Habang umiihip ng malamig na hangin
Habang may kapit bahay na napapabahing
Habang rumoronda ang mga gwardya
Habang umuunat ang mga dingding

Ako ay nakahiga dito sa dilim,
Sa buong gabi, nakadilat ang mga mata.
Salamat sa kwento ng katahimikan.
Salamat sa kwento ng insomnia.

I have been a trackball user for about 5 years. I find it more convenient to use than a mouse. For one, I don't need so much "tracking space" as much as the mouse. I wouldn't even have a use for a mouse pad! And I am more comfortable controlling my fingers than my hand. Therefore, the trackball is the best PC pointing device for me. My only eternal problem with it though is that it gets oily over time. And since my fingers touch the ball itself, the internal parts get dirty too, even if you clean the ball almost everyday. Then it would come to a point that it's almost out of control. THEN I would have to buy a new trackball. I'm just so tired of it already. I'm giving up on the trackball.

Sorry Trackie baby. You have been helpful. REALLY. But you're
not as good as you were when I first met you. It's time to end it.
Your ball has been nice. But it's so HARD... so
hard to use it na, eh. Icky! Humanap ka na lang ng iba dahil
may kapalit ka na. Si Logitech Optical Mouse! He's so cute... so
small... * giggle, giggle, giggle * ...and so portable!

I just installed my lappie's USB optical mouse. I have yet to buy the PS/2 type. And even though I have a very small work space, I could get accustomed to using a mouse... again.

Mommy Computer

I got my Mom a computer early this year because she expressed interest in learning it. All of my Titas have been emailing each other except for my Mom because she has no inkling as to what a computer can do these days apart from printing documents. I told her I could teach her how to at least use the e-mail. Pumayag naman. Tho, I think she had too much wine the night I asked her that. So, I bought her a nice P4 3Ghz PC with WiFi connection. Over 6 months later, WALA. She refuses to learn computing. Natakot yata sa typing.

Kaya ngayon, the Mommy Computer is being used mostly by my nephews whenever they come over for their weekend visits. I also use it for my iPod since it has 120 Gigs of hard drive capacity.

Last night, as I was cleaning up IE's temp folder, I discovered a lot... and I mean A LOT of porn pics and links. It couldn't have been me. I wouldn't dare go to porn sites using my Mom's computer. The computer is placed in the living room and going to such sites would be like me taking a shower with a girl... TOTALLY UNIMAGINABLE. My elder nephews have been burning CDs lately using the Mommy Computer's CD burner. I never bothered to ask them what they have been burning. I didn't want to be an uzi uncle.

Kaya pala sinasara nila yung pinto kapag nasa kwarto sila. Kaya pala hindi maka-labas ng kwarto once na pumasok sila sa loob. Kaya pala nagtatawanan sila kapag ginagamit nila ang computer na 'to. Porn, porn, porn.

Ako naman ang tatawa. Buwah hwuah huwah huwah...!

It's another rainy day. The world outside looks sad. Wala lang. That's just how I feel about today's rain. Sad. Whenever it rains, i would feel either sad or nostalgic. I don't know exactly why i'd feel sad on a rainy day, but i know why i'd feel nostalgic about it. Memories of my childhood days. And even college days. Mangyari kase, back in the days when I was starting with the basics of algebra and Philippine history, during the months of June, July and August, it would rain almost everyday. At madalas din cancelled ang classes, the only chance i get to see Batibot and Sesame street on TV in the morning.

My college car took a lot of beating from driving through rough roads (walang katapusang pot holes), traffic and (almost) tire-high floods. I was blessed na never ako natirikan ng makina. I wouldn't know what to do if that ever happened to me. Uhm... Kahit ngayon, di ko pa rin alam ang gagawin ko kung mangyari sa akin yun and I'd slap myself for buying an automatic car whenever I'm reminded about it.


Rain gives an opportunity for some to make porma. They just have to hope that it will stay cold for the rest of the day. I suddenly remember a Sprite commercial with the similar situation.

"Yo... pahingi ng... Sprite..."

At biglang hinimatay si pogi.


Today I'm wearing my favorite brown bootleg jeans, my most-favored-but-not-exactly-the-favorite red collared shirt and a sports sweater. And just like any porma that prioritizes porma, it's quite useless under the rain. My pants are soaking wet, my sweater doesn't give much protection (ang tanga ko talaga, di pa ako nag-jacket) and i desperately need my running shoes.


During this season, i'm also expecting something that is in every computer freak's nightmares. Blackouts.

I have been too attached with my computer, i would go insane without it. And I hope the jelly fish specie won't play hookie again with the power plants coz things will only get NASTY.

When I was a kid, I had this asinine notion that I was a child of an alien since nobody could explain who my real parents are. And up to a certain extent, I believed that I had super natural powers. Particularly, the power to influence things or persons just by believing.

When I was in 5th grade, a classmate called Cortez insulted me over not giving to the mission collection by telling the whole class that my family has gone poor. I cried for a while and then I thought of revenge. I stared at him for the rest of the class period and seriously thought of the word "pain." At dismissal, he fell down the staircase and broke his arm. I smirked as I passed by him, very much pleased to see that he was in pain. In 6th grade, another classmate code named Ipis played a prank on me by placing bubble gum on my seat while in the laboratory. We were doing some chemical experiment and the flames from the burners were dancing in front of me. I imagined the flames spinning around his body. A few weeks later, he showed up in school bald. He was playing with firecrackers and his hair caught fire.

I used to have a dozen white dogs and I was the only one who could fully control them. I only spoke to them in my mind and strangely enough it seemed that they could understand what I was thinking. At night, when something on the street makes them bark, I would rise up, go to the front door and tap on the wall once to call their attention. While all of them are looking at me, I would gesture the silence sign with my lips and finger, believing that they would not make any more noise, and they would all return to the back of the house and never make another sound for the rest of the night.

I'm not telling about how evil or how bizarre I was when I was a kid. I'm telling about believing in something. Faith. I didn't have super natural powers as a kid. I just had this faith on favorable possible outcome of things. And when they happen, I get delighted. The more I get powerful.

I wish I could do the same for the country. Faith in our advancement. But for that to happen, there should also be the possibility for it to happen. How can you see that leeway if our leaders prefer playing in the political playground? If the bureaucrats' main concern is to grab power? If the ill-advised citizens favor the population's demons?

If you see what I see, give me a hug. I need it now.

Everyone needs it now.


Everytime I go out driving, what I see on the streets frustrates me. Squatters, garbage, j-walkers (on edsa and SLEX pa, ha?), lousy cops (police in the Philippines are as good as shit... Literally... Bad, stinky and cannot be trusted... pure evil), traffic, and etc. But what makes me go nuts even more are the crazy bus, taxi, jeepney and even tricycle and pedicab drivers. Why oh why do they have to be so annoyingly undisciplined? They make driving in the metro a stressful and oftentimes a risky activity.

Just a reflection, if the common Pinoys can't perform simple discipline to basic activities such as driving and maintaining cleanliness in a community, how can you rely on these same people to be part of the country's progress?

The sad thing is that they represent the majority of the Pinoys.


I turned on the TV today. Watched the news. Rally dito, rally doon. Almost everyone has the same rantings, the same "demands." And I uphold the same question as before...

10 minutes after my parents and Jet, my nephew, left for Tagaytay, I fell back on my bed and let myself be unconscious for the next 3 hours in the afternoon. I thought it was the antibiotics kicking in my system that's making me feel lazy and sleepy. But Mr. M says it's the effect of the PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE HCL CHLORPHENAMINE MALEATE PARACETAMOL (Decolgen Forte). Sorry about that. Talking to my boyfriend and our doctor friends has converted me from dull to boring. I got up at about 4pm and was in ATC 30 minutes later.

Mr. M and I watched War of the Worlds. The story is so old and too out-of-this-world, the probability that it would ever happen will never go beyond the zero level. I can just imagine my Mom exclaiming "imposible naman yan!! That's too... FANTASTIC!"


One of those words that I've gotten used to hearing while growing up.


"Napanood ko ang James Bond sa TV (teebee) kanina... Naniniwala ka ba doon? It's... FANTASTIC. Imposible!"

So ayun. Fantastic ang War of the Worlds. Fastastic in a way that the definition would equate to a Kikay's definittion of... HELLO??? (And a bading's HELLER???).

Great effects, though. And Justin Chatwin is so cute! FYI, hindi na siya teenager. 23 years old na siya. And the audience should start getting used to seeing Tom Cruise having a teen-aged kid on film. He's already THAT old. Dakota Fanning's a great female child actor. REALLY. But her character was just sooooooo IRRITATING. Kung ako yung tatay nun, pinakain ko na lang siya sa aliens. Sorry, I just hate brats.


Dinner at Recipes was BARFY. Enough said.


THEN we hung out at The Coffee Bean. Mr. M was reviewing for next week's exams while I brisked at a "Twisted" book by Jessica Zafra (Can't remember which one. Naiwan ko sa kotche, eh).

I love sarcasms.


When normal people drink coffee, they get pepped up. When I drink coffee, I get sleepy. And combined with the power of antibiotics and/or colds medicine, I'm good as drunk.

Now, if you excuse me, I got a date with my bed. I have an appointment with the animal doc 8 hours from now.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comI just finished listening to Bamboo's first album. Ngayon lang ako nagkaroon ng time at tyaga na makinig ng isang buong album. Aba, maganda naman pala! And their 2nd album has to be good as well.

Kung hindi... WELL.... Wala. Yun na. "WELL" lang. Ehehe ehehe.

Hmmm... What else have I been up to?

I haven't taken any pictures lately. Kase nga nagkasakit ako. And it has been WET in Alabang for 2 days now.


Len emailed me 2 pics today. She's pregnant alright. Wow. Nanay na nanay na talaga. Glad to know that they're doing well at the other side of the globe. And Kei's taller now!

I miss Len.


Hindi na ako galit sa pamangkin ko na mas matanda pa sa akin. Putek. Ang GWAPO!!! At ang tangkad. Nabale yata ang leeg ko. Haaaaay. Pero feeling ko walang sabit 'to. I mean, hindi siya San Francisco kembot boy. Hindi ko siya smell, eh.




I miss the Southies.

* Sigh


May bisita kami ngayon. O heto, connect the dots nanaman. (Ahem, ahem). Ang tatay ko may kapatid na babae, si Tita Melba. Eldest yun sa kanilang magkakapatid. She's about 90 years old and living in the US of A. Ngayon, si Tita Melba may apat na anak, ang eldest nila ay babae and they call her... uhm... sheht, I forgot her name. I never met her kase. Basta, yun. And this eldest daughter has 3 kids yata. And the youngest son is in our house right now and he will be staying here until he goes back to the states. Semi-business trip niya yata ito. He's 30 years old. So, kumbaga, pamangkin ko ito. And he's older than I am.

Intro lang yan.

He's resting in the guest room right now. Hindi ko pa siya nakikita pero kumukulo na ang dugo ko sa kanya. Pumasok ako sa kwarto ko na bukas ang lahat ng ilaw ko, bukas ang aircon ko, bukas ang computer ko at pati DSL modem ko, bukas din. Aba, aba, ABA! Hindi yata tama 'yan.


Milagrong hindi pa niya hiniram yung iPod ko na katabi lang ng computer ko. Tsss!

Lahat yata ng kamag anak ng tatay ko inaaway ko. Kase naman, eh! Ang kukupal! Grrrrr!

Sige, gagayahin ko si Polgas.

* Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts.


Nahirapan ba kayong maghanap ng gas station ngayong araw na may gas? My gulay. Naka 4 na gas station ko bago ako nakapag lagay ng gas sa kotche ko. Mangyari, starting July 1 may dagdag na VAT na ang gasoline. Ngayon yun, di ba? Kumbaga, nag-panic buying ng gas ang mga tao kahapon bago sila maabutan ng dagdag na presyo ng gas.

Siyempre, nakakunot nanaman ang nuo ko. May VAT ang gasolina??? Putangina. Katarantaduhan na ito. Expect everything else to raise up their prices.


At bago nanaman ang hair cut ko! Ang sarap. Ang lamig! In case hindi ko pa nasasabi dito, 3 times a month ako nagpapagupit ng buhok. Every 10th, 20th and 30th. Ayoko kaseng nagmumukhang bunot ang buhok ko. At Semikal ang hair cut ko. Pumapangit kapag hindi pantay-patay ang haba ng buhok after 7 or 8 days. At kapag lumagpas ng 10 days, mahaba na talaga ang buhok ko.

And speaking of mahabang buhok, akala ng doctor ko kanina college student pa ako. Mukha daw kase akong bata. Kaya tinanong ako kung kailangan ko pa ng medical clearance para sa prof ko. AHAHA AHAHA. O di ba, kailangan ko nanamang magpagupit ng buhok bukas???

Buwah huwah huwah huwah...!!!

World's oldest person shares my birth day!

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch woman who swears by a daily helping of herring for a healthy life celebrated her 115th birthday on Wednesday as the oldest living person on record.

Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper, a former needlework teacher, was born in 1890, the year Sioux Indians were massacred by the U.S. military at the Battle of Wounded Knee.

The passionate soccer fan celebrated her birthday in a nursing home in the northern Dutch town of Hoogeveen.

"She eats a piece of herring every day because it's good for the health," said Johan Beijering, director of the Westerkim nursing home. "She is still mentally full of vitality."

The daughter of a headmaster, Van Andel-Schipper was born in the town of Smilde in the northern Netherlands on June 29, 1890.

Also known as Hennie, she married a tax inspector in the 1930s and was forced to sell her jewellery to buy food during the German occupation in World War Two.

"A scan of our archive reveals that Hennie is also older than the Guinness World Records holder for the oldest man living, which makes her the oldest person in the world," said Guinness World Records book editor Craig Glenday.

The world's oldest living man on record, Emiliano Mercado Del Toro, lives in Puerto Rico. He was born on August 21, 1891.

The record for the longest life is held by 122-year-old French woman Jeanne-Louise Calment who died in 1997, according to Guinness World Records (www.guinnessworldrecords.com).

check out my phlog!Ba't walang pumapansin sa mga litratong kuha ko. Magaganda naman sila, ah? (papansin, papansin!).

'Wag na nga muna natin isipin ang tungkol sa kahunghangang nanyayari sa Philippine politics at baka di tumalab ang botox treatment mo sa sobrang pagkunot mo ng noo. Sabay-sabay na lang tayong magkamot ng ulo.

* scratch, scratch, scratch, scratch

So... sa bahay lang ako buong araw at pilit na nagpapagaling. Pero, hindi pa rin magaling. Pero, in fairness kay Biogesic, magaan-gaan naman ang pakiramdam ko ngayon. Wala pa ring effect sa akin ang Pei Pa Koa kaya balik Robitusin nanaman ako.

Kakaiba ang amoy ng mga aso ko ngayon. Wala silang amoy! At dahil may sipon ako, pina-confirm ko muna sa nanay ko kung talagang wala nang amoy yung mga aso.

"Akala ko inilibing mo na yung mga aso mo. Di ko na sila naaamoy, ah!"

Grabe, ang sweet ng nanay ko. Anyway, so ayun. May binili kase ako na isang liquid medicine, pampaalis daw ng doggie smell. Ihahalo lang sa water nila at after 2 days dapat may effect na. At may effect na nga! Pucha, dapat lang. 800 pesos yung lintek na isang bote nun. Nawalan tuloy ako ng budget pambili ng gas ng kotche ko. Pero at least, nawalan din ng amoy ang mga aso ko. Sana forever na ito!

Ewan ko lang ha pero parang naging mas malandi ngayon yung pug ko. Kung dati dinadaganan lang niya yung labrador ko kung nakahiga, ngayon naman dinidilaan na niya yung itlog ni Dexter. At ba't naman papalag si Dexter eh ang sarap nun. Ehehe ehehe. Ang mga aso kong bading talaga. They're so fabulous! Kung naging tao ang mga yan, nagtayo na sila ng pansitan sa kanto ng Nakpil at Orosa sa Malate. Talbog ang tindero ng fishballs. Magiging friend pa nila si SPO1 Moya. Intriga!!

Haaaaay. Nakaka-inip sa bahay. Sira pa Playstation 2 ko. Buysit.

The Village

What if we put up a small village, just for a selected few lang, and start living like as if it were the 19th century. Wouldn't that be nice? I mean, there would be no politics, no rage, no drugs, and everything bad that the Philippine society has right now. Of course there would be politics coz we would need people to lead the community. But since it would be a small community, and not the whole country, it wouldn't be as horrible as the national government. And the younger ones would be taught well. We would get the best Doctors, the best teachers, the best farmers, the best in many fields. And we would also have to do without radios and TVs if we were to pretend that it's the pre-American era.

I got this idea from the movie The Village. Di ba parang ang inosente ng mga tao doon? Sana may community na parang ganun pa rin.

Nakakatakot na sa Pilipinas. Napapapunta na sa wala ang pinagsikapan ni Ninoy at ng mga taong nagsakripisyo para ibalik ang demokrasya sa Pilipinas. And GMA failed BIG TIME. Na ginagatungan naman ng oposisyon.

There is another issue behind the wire tapping issue. There are certain things that the public don't need to know. At kung malaman, tulad ng nanyayari ngayon, magkakaroon ng imbalance sa lipunan. Salamat sa opposition, bumilis ang bagsak ng ekonomiya ngayon. Tumataas ang halaga dollar, at lalong nahihirapan kaming mga negosyanteng ipagpatuloy pa ang mga operasyon ng mga negosyo. Sabi nga ng isang kaibigan kong nasa import-export business, kailangan nilang maglay-off ng 50 na tao para lang makahabol sa gastos ng negosyo. Kung patuloy pa rin ang katarantaduhang ginagawa ng oposisyon, baka magsara na lang sila at dagdag 100 tao ang mawawalan ng trabaho.

Sino ba ang oposisyon? Ito ang mga power hungry politicians na gustong bawiin ang kapangyarihan nila na natamasa nila noong panahon ni Marcos. Tignan mo ang mga taong nasa likod ni Erap. Nasa likod ni FPJ. Ito ang mga taong yumaman at naging makapangyarihan noong panahon ng Martial Law. Ito ang mga taong naging hari sa lipunan. Sabi nga ng nanay ko, ito ang mga tao at mga pamilyang tinaguriang mga "cannot be touched." Hindi na maiintindihan ng mga karaniwang Pilipino yan ngayon dahil either bata pa o hindi pa sila ipinanganganak noong dekada iyon. O baka naman sadyang makakalimutin ang karaniwang tao? Kahit ako, wala pa akong malay noon. Pero ang magulang ko ay mga naging political observer. Mga naging saksi at mga naging biktima ng madilim na nakaraan ng Pilipinas.

Hmmmm.... magumpisa kaya akong magbasa ng post-American Philippine History.


Napanood niyo ba yung speech ni Mrs. FPJ kahapon? Kung kinakailangan daw, siya ang magiging presidente ng Pilipinas. Tumaas ang mga balahibo ko! Grabe. Sinong nag coach sa kanyang magsalita ng ganun? Si Rez Cortez??

Para bang nasa isang maliit na isla lang tayo at ang mga Pilipino ay isang maliit na tribo lang.

"Kami ayaw sa iyo. Ikaw bad girl. Ikaw parusahan! Ikaw swimming sa apoy. Kami hanap bago datu. Dami ako fans. Ako na lang bago Reyna. Reyna ako!!! Ako bago REYNA!!!! .....ahem, ahem... uhm.... Ready na ako direk!"

The beauty of democracy. Pwede mo nang bastus-bastusin ang Presidente on national TV. Tsk tsk tsk. How sad.

I feel so bad about this country. It's so... how should I say it? Ineffective? The masa is not slowly killing the Philippines. The country is already dead, the way I see it. Let's all move to Vietnam. Mas may future pa siguro doon. Turuan na lang natin silang maligo, mag-toothbrush at gumamit ng deodorant and we will be fine.


Kung magre-resign si GMA, sino naman ang gusto niyong pumalit sa kanya? Ano ang impact sa iyo ng pangalang President Noli? Paki-abot ng dalawang capsules ng Advil at sumakit yata ang ulo ko. Keep in mind that we have a Constitution we should follow. At kung hindi susundan yan, para saan pa na ginawa ang batas?


I'm staying home today. Kailangang magpahinga, eh. Sana makatulog.

Sad news

visit my phlog!The camera I was wishing for isn't available yet in Quiapo. It's not even available yet in mall stores. Pero, my gulay, ang labo naman ng Canon. Ba't pa nila ina-advertise yung camera sa newspapers kung di man lang available sa mga stores. Grrrr. They made me asa.

To Canon, I'll make sabunot your bulbol until you make luwa free 2GB SD cards. Leche.

Yun lang naman ang sad news.

MEANWHILE... back in Yemen... SOMEONE woke me up this morning... at 1AM, mind you... by calling my mobile phone. Siyempre, tumunog nanaman si 'Hello Garci.' I know it's always nice to greet a friend on his birthday. But consider naman that some people don't have the luxury of a good slumber. And I'm one of them. Calling at 1AM? Hello?? Ok lang kung text. Less than 2 seconds lang naman ang ingay nun. I'm a sporadic insomniac, and I would thank Yahweh whenever he blesses me with at least 7 hours of sleep. You know who you are. But, thanks anyway for the greeting. MWAAAAH!


Dami ko din pala ginawa today! I went to work; visited the laundry mat; bought my dogs some vitamins; researched for hotels in South Africa for my Mom's trip; bought some toiletries and medicines; and harassed 3 stray cats for trying to hurt my baby Max.


I was sick today, but still did my work anyway. I had some important stuff to do. (and Ringo, who says STUFFS, hmmm?). But I'm going to take the whole day's rest tomorrow. And I'm super looking forward to that.

Freak show

visit my phlog!I received a text message from a childhood friend, Dennis, a few minutes ago. He greeted me a happy birthday. Now, I haven't seen nor heard from this guy for about 10 years. I asked him how he got my number.

"I got it frm Tita (my Mom) abt 2 mos ago! I went 2 ur hous but u wr in Galera."

Ah yeah. I remember my Mom telling me that he passed by that weekend. Sabi pa nga niya "baklang-bakla na si Dennis."

And then I asked him how he knew my birthday.

"Hello?? D b we wr sweethearts when we wr kids?"



It's all coming back to me now. I have been molested by my... erm... playmate!

4 years old pa lang... madumi na ako... MADUMI NA AKO!! Huhuhuhuhuhu.

visit my phlogHindi ko maintindihan kung bakit tuwing "birthday," kailangan maging "happy." Oo nga, ikinatutuwa ng magulang mo na ipinanganak ka. Pero, ikinatutuwa mo bang nabubuhay ka? Masaya ka ba?

Sabi nga ni Kim sa kanyang anak sa Miss Saigon (ahem, ahem), "Youuuuu never wished to be boooooornnnnn.... You......... Why should you learn of waaaaaaar or paaaaaaaain...."

In a way para na rin ako yung anak ni Kim. Kung sino man yung mga magulang ko na nagmanyak-manyakan nang hindi gumagamit ng condom, pinamigay ako kase siguro hindi pa ako nasa plano nila. O baka bata pa sila at nagaaral lang ng Anatomy. O baka mag-jowa lang sila. O baka nagkita lang sila sa gitna ng rally sa Mendiola. How romantic!

Hindi talaga ako nagce-celebrate ng birthday, yun ang totoo. Para sa akin, yun lang ang araw na ipinanganak ako. Ganun lang ka-simple. Kasing-simple nang nung isang araw, nag-renew ako ng lisensya. O kanina lang, dinapuan ako ng ubo. O nung sabado, naka-kain ako ng halo-halo sa Chowking. Wala akong rason para mag-piyesta, kumbaga.

Same old, same old...

Eh dahil naman sa tradisyon, lumalabas pa rin kami ng pamilya ko tuwing birthday ko. At dahil din naman sa tradisyon, nanlilibre ako ng mga kaibigan pagdating ng weekend. Ok lang dahil para yun sa mga kaibigan ko dahil gusto ko silang nakikitang magkakasama ang masaya.

At kailan ako magiging tunay na masaya para magkaroon ng Happy Birthday?

Ewan ko. Basta ang gusto ko lang sa akin ang mga Sabado ko at hindi maaaksaya sa pamilya o sa trabaho.

Sa ngayon, gusto kong kumuha nang kumuha ng maraming mga litrato. Yun na lang siguro ang pwede kong pagka-abalahan at kunan ng pagkakuntento sa buhay. Masaya na ako doon.

Pero kahit na hindi ko talaga dinidiwang ang birthday ko, sana meron pa rin akong fairy God Mother na magbibigay sa akin ng... hindi glass slippers, ha. Kundi ITO. Hehe.

Minsan lang po mangarap!

Maliit ang mundo

visit my phlog! Talagang napakaliit ng mundo naming mga... uhm... special boys.

Si A, na best friend ng ex kong si B, ay kilala (kilala lang ha) pala ng BF ko na si C, na na-chismis na niligawan ng kaibigan naming si D. Nakita ko kagabi si A sa Starbucks sa Malate at kanina sa gym kaya bigla ko siyang naalala. Pinakilala ko si D sa kaibigan kong si E na alam na pala ni D kung sino si E kase kaibigan ni E ang ex ni D na si F. Ang nakakatawa, alam din naman pala ni E kung sino si D pero nung pinakilala ko sila kagabi kunwari hindi sila magkakilala.


Eksena ito!

At hetong si D, may pinakilala naman sa akin kagabi sa Malate na sina G at H na mga kaibigan din ni F at kaibigan din ni D. Akala ng BF kong si C na mag BF sina G at F dahil madalas niya silang dalawang magkasama sa gym. At ang balita ko kahit na noong sila pa ni D at F, pinagseselosan na ni D si G dahil close si F dito.


Ah, at dumating ang fellow blogger na si I kasama si J na akala ko walang balak pumunta ng Malate kagabi. Kahatak naman ni J ay si K na scoolmate ko nung collage na kaibigan pala ni J at ni L na nangaling pa ng QC. Ka-barkada nina J, K at L si M pero hindi pwedeng lumabas si M dahil may sakit at natatakot na baka lumala dahil sa ulan. Kaibigan din nila si N na tinamad lumabas ng bahay. Incidentally, nakilala ni D si N nung pumunta kami ni D sa Galera more than a month ago. At, pinormahan din ni D ito. Pero ngayon, hindi na daw niya type si N.

Anyway... nandiyan pa si O, P, Q at R.

Ni-message ng ex kong si B ang kaibigan kong si O sa downelink pero hindi naman masyado pinansin ito (according to O). Nag-iwan lang si B ng pa-tweetums na testimonial para kay O na feeling niya close na sila. Si O ang current jowa ng isa pang friend kong si P. Si P ay ang former jowa ng friend kong si M. Friend din ni P si D since college days.

Naalala ko lang si B kase... tulad ni A, nakita ko siya kagabi na may ka-holding hands na isang guy. Mesmerized nanaman ako kase, pucha, ang gwapo pa rin ni B.

Si Q ang isa pang ex kong muntik na maging jowa ni B. Pero since siguro maaga niyang na-sense na krung-krung itong si Q, wala din naman nanyari. Nakita ko si R kagabi, yung isang naka-EB ko 3 months ago na naging date pala ni Q habang nung kami pa. Pero deadma ko lang siya.

Ang liit ng mundo ko.

Sana marami pa akong makilala!


Nakakalitong gumawa ng blind item.

Ang bait ko talaga! My brother asked me to fix one of my nephews' computers. He's dropping it off tomorrow morning and they need it by Sunday. Ang ganda. Utusan ba ako?


But anyway, it's no biggie... REALLY. As long as he won't give me a problem like looking for device drivers online and provide me with the necessary CDs instead. Chicken lang yan.

Basta basta basta... I wanna go to Malate tomorrow night. Mr. M already gave me the nod. He's going, of course. I don't think he will trust me to go there by myself. Especially with Rx around. I have this feeling that Mr. M doesn't like me seeing Rx. Bakit kaya?


Waaaah! Mukha na akong pork chop! Fat and greasy! Tuesday pa yung huling punta ko sa gym at tumakbo lang ako ng isang oras. I have to go to the gym tomorrow. At least in the morning para makapag-rest ako ng afternoon, if Mr. M will let me, para inuman sa gabi!

Woohoo! BEER! Sheht! Inuman nanaman! Yyyyyyes!!!

OMG! 0cm super macro ????
