in bloom

"Intense love does not measure, it just gives." - Mother Teresa

twelve long, white ones. neatly wrapped by a pink paper. covered in clear plastic. and finally tied together with a pink ribbon.

the card placed on top of it was the icing of it all.

written inside of it, that oh so wonderful song.

i couldn’t help myself but smile after reading, well singing, it.

i called to say thank you for the wonderful surprise.

but what i didn’t tell you was what made it more special, more meaningful.

i have never ever received any flowers from anyone. never.

you are the first.

and when i got home and was all alone in my room.

i took the long box that carried the flowers and card inside of it.

held it close to my body.

closed my eyes.

and swayed to the imaginary melody of that very same song written in the card.

thinking how lucky i am to be loved by someone so sweet, someone so caring and someone so special.

and i smile =)

1 more day to go.

to us, happy 2nd...

seeing red

"There's nothing wrong with anger provided you use it constructively." - Wayne Dyer

who the hell do you think you are?!

wa koy labot kung mapasmo ka ug ang imong pamilya!

dili obligasyon sa among opisina nga pakaonon mo. mao gani nga naa ka dra sa imong ginatrabahuan para buhion nimo imong pamilya. baga jud kag face bah!

kung ginatolerate ka tungana, well, karon magdusa ka!

the more that you are sending me those paconsensya text messages, the more i will ignore you.

and i really don’t care that you’re working in that specific field.

remember, you are responsible for putting food in your family’s table. not ours! my god! to think you are an able-bodied person. you should work hard and not just wait to be given goods every month.

there are other less fortunate people more deserving of the help that we extend than you do.

take full responsibility of your life. don’t depend so much on other people.

wa koy labot nimo!

the sheer frustration on these kinds of people, ugh!

lighter and better

"A smile is a curve that sets everything straight." - Phyllis Diller

the past days were so overwhelming to the point that i broke down the other day.

but then i realized, things will just fall into place soon.

so, i took things one at a time and everything seemed to turn out well.

and then, a text message from you came.

happy words telling a story about something we both love.

and that made me smile even more.

made my day a whole lot better.

aaaahhhh... the pleasures of having someone special. =)

of sickness, celebrities and a friend

“Steady as a clock, busy as a bee, and cheerful as a cricket” – Martha Washington

two days into the new work, i got sick. flu, cough and all. hay. i must have been overwhelmed with the bulk of work. or it could also be from all the dust as we were cleaning the new office. 2 more weeks of this before the new office will all be settled.


saw a couple of celebrities yesterday. drew arellano is really gwapo but he's quite short. Smooth skin, nice smile, wonderful body. Aaahhhh to die for. ;))

got to see lady gagita and haronce in the flesh. i never thought lady gagita would be really tall. Around 5’9” or 5'10". they were donning their trademark outfits they used in the telephone parody. and it was really nice to see once again jinky vidal and tat suzara of freestyle. it's been a while since i've seen them :). they were interviewed for drew’s tv show in qtv. so proud to see fellow dabawenyos getting recognized.


a simple and heartfelt greeting for an extraordinary person. a happy, happy birthday, geek! =)
