Last Sunday was a pain in my ass. Actually, it was a pain on my ankle. 2 cactus thorns got stuck on my foot when I accidentally stepped on a cactus which once towered our hideous garden. Since the thorns were on an uncomfortable-to-reach area, I had to ask my mom to remove them. The thorns got stuck deep that my mom had to scrape/cut some layers of my skin to remove them. Good thing my foot's skin is thick.
Today is a cars show day at Pasay City but we missed attending it. We were expecting guests for a cooking demonstration at lunch time and they missed it the last minute. If only we were informed earlier, we could have rescheduled the cooking demonstration so as to be able to attend the car show. What a waste. Good thing there was free food.
Last Friday, we celebrated the anniversary of one of my orgs.It was the same day as the National Convention at Baguio of another one of my orgs. I had to choose attending the former since I had committed to it first, I knew I'd enjoy on it more, and I'd spend on it less. But I really wanted to go to the latter since I also had to run some errands near where the Convention was held. But it has all been done and my only regret was that I lost the contest I joined in the anniversary celebration because I didn't prepare that much. Good thing there was booze after!
After the anniversary celebration last friday, I and my good, smart, quiet, weird and new friends headed straight to one of the locally renown beer house(I'm not sure what to call it) near the vicinity. Because everybody missed everybody else, everyone else was talking. And since almost everyone was, soon after, under the influence of alcohol, stories were getting interesting and conversations were growing intense. I just listened though I got bored somewhere in between when my mouth ceased to spell out some words. Good thing I had something to play with.
The rest of the week's been a fun affair for me. One morning, I was helping a friend look for a place to move in to when we came upon this peculiar all-girls boarding house. We were having a tour on the said boarding house when a guy went out on one of the "many" rooms. A few moments after that a girl with a wide smile or a weird grin came out of the same room. Now that's an interesting all-girls boarding house!
Another morning, I was in one tambayan when i was supposed to be in class. I was late in class and since it was class policy that late comers shouldn't be allowed to enter the class room, I just called it a day and decided not to attend class, which I actually enjoyed doing specially in the past.
Another morning, I was off to go home with my good friend.

Manny Pacquiao just won another title in boxing and I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to watch the live telecast because we aren't subscribed to any cable company, the delayed telecast because we were busy attending an exhibit at Pasay, and a replay because not one(or so I think) among the stations our T.V. antenna could receive did a telecast. I really want to see why people with access to the live telecast at the exhibit a while ago were shouting and cheering or jeering.
We were arranging a rock pile in our fishpond for our pet turtle to rest on when i found out that one(or two) of 3 of my brother's newly bought fish had its(their) head(s)'s bitten of by another fish and I had to rescue,remove and relocate the other(last) one which already had two big carnivore-fish bite on its side; something similar to the slice my mom usually makes on a tilapia before she would fry it. I'm really hoping it could survive to grow big enough and have its revenge on the culprit.
The reason we missed the Pacquiao-Cotto match was because we attended the Philconstruct expo, an exhibit of different construction materials for interior design, structural, and mining work. We went there because we were looking for cheap stuff my brother could add up to the lumber and hardware store my father is setting up for him. I felt a bit jealous and irritated because I actually planned that to be my business in the near future. But anyway, I'd be very glad for my brother to be a part of a business that would be in line with my dream profession. I'm really hoping for his success.
At the exhibit, I fell in love. Fell in love with a truck, a ten wheeler dump truck! I dream that in the future, I'd have a ready-mix-cement plant, a fleet of dump trucks, and a hollow block factory. For now, grades and attitude pull me far from that dream. I need a personality change!
I've been searching for a text book that, at the famous local bookstore, costs more than 10k. I've tried to search it on the internet and so far, the cheapest way I could procure it is if I know someone in Europe, who plans to go back to the Philippines in a week, and ask him to buy the book for me.
Yesterday, one of my dad's office staff brought her daughter to work. As she was introducing her to me, I unconsciously over-smiled in a way my sister described as exaggeratedly cute. Talk about flirting.
Last night, I had a weird dream. I liked the dream. Then again, the dream made me feel empty. I think, it's time I got serious with my life, and,,, my love life!(Ew. haha)
A while ago, I was thinking of a song the title of which I do not know but the lyrics I slightly recall. When I was about to search for the song, I forgot the lyrics. Sigh.
Last Thursday, we were at school waiting for some people when my good friend began teasing me on an account of a misinterpreted deed. I felt annoyed and didn't want to talk. Later that night, as we were drinking our lives to unconsciousness, this good friend of mine began crying into self destruction for a reason I can't really comprehend. I tried to comfort her. I'm still annoyed.
Tomorrow is gonna be a new day for me. I can't wait for the new things to happen. Hopefully, there would be some to amuse me.

Maghapon lang kami sa bahay kanina. Ayaw nilang umalis dahil ayaw nilang gumastos. Gusto kong umalis dahil napakaboring nga naman sa bahay kunsaan kundi T.V. ang kausap ay ang Computer. Gusto ko sanang mamasyal. Bilang na ang mga araw na ako'y magiging malaya sa problema at mga responsibilidad kaya't habang maaga'y gusto kong gumala, lumibot, magliwaliw. Lalu na't minsan lamang sa isandaang taon nawawalan ng ginagawa ang lahat sa pamilya. Minsan lamang sa isanlibong taon yung dalawang araw magkasunod na walang gagawin, sa opisina man, sa bahay o sa skwelahan. At minsan lamang sa ilang libong taon yung magyayaya ako na mamasyal at lahat ay gustong sumama. Ako lang madalas.
Kaya't heto, maghapon na nanunuod ng T.V. o nagko-computer, o kumakain, o natutulog.
Magpahinga nalang daw muna kami sa bahay. Sabagay, ilang beses nga ba sa isang araw kung kami'y magpagod? magpuyat? magtrabaho? magaral? Magpahinga muna. Kulang pa siguro ang pahinga sa gabi. Magpahinga muna. Kulang pa siguro yung pahinga every 30 minutes sa trabaho. Hay nako!
Gusto kong mamasyal! Gusto kong lumibot! Gusto kong maglakbay. Kailan ba kasi ipinagbawal ang hindi pag-gastos sa tuwing may pupuntahan? Hay nako!
Nakadikit na ang mga puwit nila sa upuan,
ang mga likod nila sa kama,
ang mga mata nila sa T.V.
ang mga bibig nila sa kutsara

As I reminisce the things that have gone
As I dream of a future as I see
Nothing is impossible if one would try
Nothing is unreachable if one would strive
Nothing would hold with a will that's strong,
No mountains, no valleys, no rivers, no time, no space
Liven up in clouds of gray
Ablaze with passion, aflame with life
Smile at me
Smile with me

Tahimik lang(Sa isip ko:"Shut Up!!"). Pero teka, bakit ako magko-comment? Di na tayo close di ba? (bitterness. haha) Tahimik lang ako. Patience... kundi baka sinapak na kita. Nasaktan pa sana ako ng matalim mong panga. Buti nalang!

This is a delayed blog which I was supposed to post some weeks ago.
We were going back to the DMST complex from
The show started with an AVP featuring interviews with the band members care of MTV Philippines. Then came the start of the concert; something that of which failed to mesmerize me. The beginning was a bit lagging, lacking on impact that I thought “ito na ba yun?” disappointed. Soon, every band member was given a chance to sing. One thing I won’t forget is Marcus singing “
Looking back at what happened, I felt glad that I pushed myself to come to the concert. No rest could fill the energy I felt during and after the concert. 3 days and I was still mesmerized and in awe. Now, I’m really into Eraserheads and I could say that they’re LEGENDARY!

Pag sapit ng gabi’y malakas iihip ang hangin. May mapapadaan na kalesa. Sa una’y mabilis ang tunog ng mga paa ng kabayo. Kapag natapat na ang kalesa sa bahay ay unti-unti itong babagal. Huwag kang dudungaw sa bintana kundi’y makikita mo ang isang kutserong walang ulo at hindi siya aalis sa tapat ng inyong bahay magdamag. Paulit ulit siyang dadaan sa tapat ng inyong bahay at hindi ka nito lulubayan. Ito ang kuwento ng kutserong walang ulo.
Noong panahon raw ng

Mario: yan ang binansag sa’kin ng mga kaklase ko sa Mil. Sci. Integ. dahil sa aking pulang sombrero na suot nung kami’y nagte-trekking
Ito ang group Integ; masaya, pasaway, at matatag!

Sinimulan ang araw ko ng isang haggard na exam. Exam naming sa G.E. 12. At dahil nag-cram ako sa pagre-review kagabi, kulang ako sa tulog. The whole day went just fine. Nothing unexpected na nangyari. Nariyan yung mga reminders ni Arriane, pangungumusta ni Carlo dun sa assigned na task samin, at pagkulit ko sa nanay ko na payagan akong magpalaundry sa Laundromat. Nag-grocery ako katapos ng aking exam dahil camping na mamaya at kulang pa rin ang aking mga dadalhin. Nakaplano na ang aking maghapon. Papatulong pa dapat ako sa kay Ferg na mag-grocery kaso 2:30 pa dismissal niya at masisira ang sched ko kung hihintayin ko pa siya. Di ko rin naman sigurado kung ok lang sakanya na tulungan ako.
Sa aking pago-grocery, pinilit kong alalahanin ang lahat ng kailangan kong bilhin. Nawala ko kasi yung listahan ko kaya nangangapa ako sa mga dapat kong bilhin. At dahil nga doon, umabot ng mahigit 2k ang bill ko para sa foods at mga kagamitang kakailanganin ko para sa isang 2-day-2-night camping
2:30 na at on schedule pa rin ako. Nagayos ng gamit at nagbihis. Magsi-six pm na nnag makarating ako sa DMST complex kung saan naghihintay ang ibang magka-camp. Nagkaproblema pa kasi ako dun sa 5-gal na tubig na binili ko dahil sinisingil ako ng 250 pesos para dun at 500 nalang ang allowance ko for the coming days.
Sa bus, masaya ang lahat. Ako, nakadungaw sa bintana. I’m into the scenery outside though it was dark and everything was moving at a fast pace. Yung mga groupmates ko, they were playing unguy-unguyan, a game which barely caught my interest. Mayamaya, tumugtog ang kantang The Day You Said Goodnigh ng Hale. Nakakatuwa kasi sometime ago, people were busy chit-chatting nang silang lahat ay napatigil at napakanta. “to be, is all I got to be…..” back to work. Napaginteresan kong guluhin yung mga groupmates ko na nagca-card games. Lumipas muli ang oras, ako’y nakadungaw sa bintana. Nasa U.P. L.B. na kami. Ayos na ng mga gamit kadating sa camp site.
Kami ni Ted ang naasign na magset-up ng tent. Pareho daw kaming C.E. majors kaya kami daw magtayo ng tent. Gutom na kaya’t naglabas na sila ng mga tinapy at chips. Malapit lang pala yung tent nila Trish samin kaya madali ko siyang napupuntahan para hingan ng kung anu-ano.
Ayus-ayos ng mga gamit, mga damit, mga puwesto, at mga kakainin bukas. Sila Arriane, Sha, Sel, at Em ang nag-budget ng meals for the next 48 hours.
Magt-trekking daw kami bukas kaya’t kelangan ng energy and rest.
6 kami sa isang tent. Maluwang siguro kung wala ang mga braso’t balikat naming. So basically sardines kami doon. Medyo mainit din sa loob dahil nga siksikan kami. Maya maya pa’y lumamig na ng kaunti. Past 1 na ng makatulog ako. Past 3 naman ng magising ako. Kamusta naman yun.
Naligo ako at 3:45 am. Nasa kabundukan nga pala kami kaya ang tubig mula dun sa faucet ay mainit ng kaunti relative sa tubig sa
Ilang oras ang lumipas at naghanda na kami para sa trekking. Wala akong ideya sa mga slopes na dadaanan naming kaya’t cool lang. Chill ika nga. Maya maya pa’y nakarating na kami sa trekking site. Isang approx 75 degree slop na may taas na katumbas o higit pa sa taas ng Palma Hall ang naghihintay sa first stretch ng trekking. Exciting! The whole trip to the rappelling station was tense. May mga part na super nakakadulas. Ang bundok na tinahak naming ay gawa sa putik at mamasa masa kaya what do you expect? Kailangan talgang kumapit sa kung ano’ng pwedeng kapitan. Dalwang oras din kaming naglalakad sa muddy trail bago narating ang rappelling cliff. Madaming nakapila kaya naghintay kami ng higit kumulang isang oras. Lunch time! Tense pa rin ang mga tao sa grupo. Kaunting card games at minutes of fame. Kami na ang magrarappell. Hindi ko inexpect na mababa lang pala yung cliff na bababaan pero mabato. Boring pero exciting! Matapos ang rappelling a nag-trek ulit. I hour nalang at nakabalik na kami sa camp. Naging exhausting ang magahpon kaya’t relax nalang sa mga sumunod na oras. Antik invasion kaya linis muna kami ng tent. Pagpag dito, pagpag doon. After kumain at maligo’y natulog muna ang ilan, kasama ako. Magaalas kwatro palang kasi at ang next activity ay mamaya pang seven. At dahil punctual naman nga ang mga tao’y inexpect na naming na 8 na mags-start ang next activity. Magaalas
Nagsimula na yung activity na singing contest. Hindi na kami sumali dahil nag-enjoy kami sa pgku-kuwentuhan tungkol sa aming mga buhay buhay. Parang question and answer portion lang. Naghalungkatan ng kung anu-anong drama sa buhay. Sinimulan ni John sa tanong na “who is your first love?” Na-weirdohan lang ako sa tanong kasi parang wala akong ganong pakialam sa mga taong di ko kaanu-ano. Maya maya pa’y naging seryoso na ang mga tanong. Life is a tickler. Buti nalang at magaan lang yung mga naging tanong sakin. Sa kabuuan, enjoy yung maghapon at magdamag. Nawala na rin kasi yung tension brought about by some misundaerstanding. Rest time na naming habang nagkakantahan pa yung ibang tao. Sa wakes ay nakatulog din ng maayos. Magaalas dose palang nang makatulog ako. Nagising ako kinabukasan ng 5 am.
Maaga kaming nag-ayos. Navigation daw ang next activity which would commence at nine am. Maaga dapat kaming matapos magbreafast. May exam pa kasi si Sel at susunduin siya anytime soon. Sakanya yung isang tent at kailangan na niyang isama pauwi kaya pagkabangon ng mga tao’y kinalas na naming ni Ted. Ligo ng kaunti, handa ng mga gamit, at handa na kaming mag-navigation activity. Ako ang naasign na pacer at si Ted ang navigator. Medyo
Nakabalik na kami ng tent. Naglabas ng mga tinapay at mga cup noodles at kumain ng kaunti. Any time soon, mags-swimming na kami. Kailangan naming i-cross ang isang 30m wide na pool. Isang balikan. Part daw siya ng practicals to test how long we would last pag nagkataong may ililigtas daw kaming nalulunod. Hindi lahat sa grupo ay nakakalangoy kaya kailangan namin silang i-save. Kung ano man daw grade ng saver, minus twenty dun sa ise-save. Sinwerte ako dahil hindi agad bumigay ang legs at lungs ko at natapos ko yung 60m swim nang hindi pinapawisan(duh! Haha) Lahat naman ng lumangoy sa grupo naming ay natapos. Nagkaroon lang ng kaunting problema dun sa kay Ted pero naayos naman.
Uwian na! Nag-ayos na kami ng mga gamit gamit. Nag-dismantle ng tent, nagipon ng mga kung anu-ano, at nagpulong sa “quadrangle” ng camp site. Awarding pa pala kaya naghintay pa kami roon ng mahigit trenta mminuto.
Nang pasakay na kaming mga magkaka-grupo sa bus, nagkaroon ng problema. Wala na daw space para sa buong grupo naming consisting of nine people na ma-accommodate sa isang bus lang kaya’t kinailangan kaming paghiwa-hiwalayin. Yung 3 sa unang bus. Kaming
Stopover sa kung saan-saan.
Pasado alas diyes na ng makarating kami sa Q.C. maga-alas onse na nang makauwi ako.
Hindi na kami nakapagpaalam as a group. Madrama. Haha.
Hindi lahat ng bagay ay nagtatapos ng masaya.
Over all, nagenjoy ako sa camp. Kahit pagod, sulit naman dahil isa ito sa mga experiences ko na maikukuwento ko sa aking mga anak o sa generations na susundan nila. Hopefully.
Go CWTS Integ! The Best! :D

I'm much a loner
silently cruising through life
I've never been with that much a people
a rarety it is for me to meet such great people
thus, great importance I give to those few who passed me by my life
Here's a list of the top 10 people I met in U.P. and would always want to meet in the future.
My Miss Mysteria
-Kind and sweet, she’s one of the best persons I’ve ever known. Despite her stubbornness and occasional opportunism, I admire her much more than I admire cars.
-My saviour when my pockets are empty, she’s one of the few people I can share my wavelengths with. She’s the sister I never had though I really don’t know what that’s supposed to mean. Haha.
-The smallest most unbiased person I’ve ever met. Haha. Her wit, knowledge, and wisdom make her a great leader and a great adviser.
Buddy Brains and Beauty
-The person who helped me become part of my first family in U.P., her ate-attitude, liberated thoughts, and vanity makes for an exciting companion anytime, anywhere.
-A great drinking buddy with all the smut less videos and rocking alternative music. Plus, he’s good at sliding when playing tennis. Peace! :D
-Most studious salutatorian ever! His deep thoughts are those of which not a humourless person could take.
-Another great drinking buddy. When it comes to being un-innocent, she might as well be my number one. Haha. :D
-The very person who felt like my mom is now a mom. She’s one of my guiding light when it comes to problems I can’t comprehend.
-Her patience has kept me bullying her for years. I can’t live without bullying. :P
C.E. dept. P.R. man
-He is one of the few people who’ve made the
Kudos to all of you! :P

Kulang ang aking araw kung sa maghapon ay:
1. Hindi ako kumain ng junk food
2. hindi ako nakapaglakad ng mahigit dalawang kilometro ng walang pahinga.
3. hindi ako bumili ng pananghalian o hapunan sa Alice’s Carinderia
4. hindi ako naglakad sa may KNL.
5. hindi ako tinawag sa aking tunay na pangalan.
6. hindi ako tumambay sa Agu-tambayan.
7. hindi ako nanlait ng kung sino man.
8. hindi ko narinig ang humihilik naming kapitbahay.
9. hindi ako nag-laptop.
10. hindi ako nagtext.
11. hindi ako na-late sa kahit alin as mga klase ko.
12. hindi ako nag-drawing ng kotse o kahit ano pa man.
13. hindi ko suot ang aking relo’t singsing. At higit sa lahat…
14. hindi KITA nakita.
Titingin sa kawalan, biglang hihinto.
Titingin sa oras, mapapaisip, lalakad muli.
Ilang beses na akong nakaranas ng maiwan sa ere. Yung tipong pagpapalanuhan ang ganito tapos last minute ay biglang magbabago ang isip dahil sa kung anumang palusot.
Madalas mangyari sakin ‘to. Minsan, napapaisip ako bakit lagi nalang ako naiiwan sa ere. Marunong naman akong umintindi ng kung anumang dahilan ngunit minsan talaga’y hindi na makatarungan ang dahilan.
Sayang lang ang oras na inilalaan ko.
Muling maglalakad, paikot-ikot.
Titingin sa langit, titingin sa oras.
Titingin sa kawalan.

I got drunk last night. My friend invited me to drink and I got a bit drunk last night. I can’t control myself and I got drunk last night. I do hope our guest didn’t judge me because I got drunk last night. I wasn’t able to shut my mouth because I got drunk last night. I was saying things and my friends were laughing at me because I got drunk last night. But hey, the joke’s on them though I was drunk last night.

Pag-ibig, siyang musika ng puso
‘pag tumama’y isip gulong-gulo
‘pag nariyan na’y buhay nagbabago
Lahat naloloko maging man tuso
Sa aking diwa, mukha niya’y kaparang anghel
Walang bahid nang kasalanan, walang bahid ng kalokohan.
Wari’y isang banal
Sa aking pandinig tinig niya’y umaawit
Puno ng tamis
Sa aking pandama, balat niya’y walang sinlambot
Bulak sa dalisay
Sa aking pakiramdam, tibok ng kanyang puso’y musika
Ritmong sapak sa kulay
Sa aking diwa, bumubuhay
