End




If the world's end is inevitable, then there's nothing one can do but to embrace it.  However, one must note that every ending is a perfect beginning.

Crumbs of Wisdom (4)


"A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar.  They're worth so much more after I'm a goner.  And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singing.  Funny, when you're dead how people start listening." 

 
As the song goes, it's quite true that you'll never know the value of something someone until they are gone...

Dear You (1)





Dear You,

Something and someone made me remember what you have said to me the night we have met (no, it's not what we did and I don't have the courage to write it here Hehehe).  It made me understand better what you meant "tahimik na buhay".

And I guess what I can draw out from your conclusion is this:  I should take an initiative to make my life less cluttered and chaotic.  Altough majority of this will based from my decisions and to some extent from the decision of others.  I guess it's time to sort out which bridge to cross and burn down.

However, as contradicting as I can ever be. Some part of me would like to make a litte note to the conclusion above. That what ever it, it doesn't hinder me from creating new bridges to replace the one burned down already ☺

Surpirse



"I never liked surprises." I could recall  myself saying when I was queried about such back in high school.  Yet if truth be told, I have nothing against it. Having thrown several for some, myself.  Or maybe it is because of not receiving any?  How awkward if you think about it. Someone who can effectively throw a surprise but haven't been given any? Hehehe.


Just when I was almost convinced that my turn to receive one is nigh impossible, here's this kind soul with a big heart, who is also warm and fuzzy (and oh, did I mention cute too?) throwing one for me!


Mischief, on top of my unruly bedsideI table ☺

Ain't the surprise cute as well? It came with a cake lighted with candles and roses but I was too astounded at that moment and wasn't able to take a picture actual surprise presentation ☺

Al Cinco de Noviembre




A highlight of the Negrense's fight for freedom during the Spanish occupation, the said day is now commonly known as Negros Day.  Though much of the celebration is centered in Silay City, one can still find several memorial and parades all throughout the island.

Got no plan yet though I think we'll be off to Silay City to watch those real canons explode ☺

Business in October


The tenth month is always a holiday for our family. Not only that it's MassKara in Bacolod City but also there's a birthday celebration every two days.  So imagine how busy the kitchen would be.  As for me, I can go away with it since I'm quite busy with work (Hahaha).  Well, I won't be really casting off entirely and leave the fate of the kitchen to someone who has assigned to manage the entire proceedings.  I can of course lend a hand.  Now enough of that, so Granny's birthday is done and cousin's as well.  Lola's birthday was just a few days ago and a new niece has just been born, which will add to the list. By tomorrow, it'll be auntie's, a cousin's and a close family friend's.  Then the day after that and then someone else's after.  And the list goes up to the 31st.  As one relative would suggest it, the family should gather and create a two or three-day birthday celebration.  We are still toying with the idea but who knows, maybe in the near future?

n.b. Nyahahaha another +1 to my age as well ☺

Early





It arrived yesterday late afternoon, was excited to open it and look what's inside.  My heart jumped when I found out what's inside.  The thing is, it has been quite far too long since I received something through the mail.  Add to that, the thought of people going out there way of sending you something as an advance birthday present even though you haven't met them yet in the flesh is really heart-warming. Thank you so much! You know who you are

Intentions should be treated and enacted with caution. For when they are executed with imprudence, they behave quite the opposite with what one actually intends.

Resistance



It can be defined as, "a force that tends to oppose or retard motion."

Well, with the looming materialization of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, various resistance have upsprung.

In effect, two government websites have taken the first blow of resistance (mwss.gov.ph and http://www.bsp.gov.ph/) as seen here:




Content quoted for clarity:
Anonymous Philippines

The Philippine Government has just passed a bill that effectively ends the Freedom of Expression in the Philippines.

The Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 is the most notorious act ever witnessed in the cyber-history of the Philippines, and the language of the bill is cunningly designed to make you think it only applies to individuals who are deep in cyber-technology and doesn't apply to everyone, but some part of the bill basically says it can imprison anyone who commits libel either by written messages, comments, blogs, or posts in sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or any other comment-spaces of other social media in the Internet.

New technologies give us new opportunities to connect with a lot of people not only in this country but all over the world. They can also provide us with a medium through which our political, public and even private views can have an immediate and direct impact on individuals, communities and even countries. It is just so disappointing that our government, in adopting our 80-year-old antiquated libel laws to the Cybercrime Law, again seems to have retarded our march with the rest of the world with respect to giving full force to the people's freedom of expression.

We ask for a revision of the said bill for the betterment of the Filipino denizens.

Protect our Right to Freedom of Expression!

#OccupyPhilippines | Anonymous Butuan | PrivateX | #pR.is0n3r

-End of quote-

The thing is, it's hard to take back freedom when it has already been experienced.  Now, before this gets settled and everything gets worse than it is already (for I can foresee the horrors this could bring kuno) I guess it's time for that branch of government to determine if this bill is unconstitutional or not and if it violates Article 3, Section 4

Buddies Dayout


One in the afternoon, got an SMS from a high school friend inquiring if I am free.  I replied, "yes". Then a barrage of SMS followed the next thing I know, I was heading downtown to meet 'em.

We met at a mall, it's Saturday so there's traffic and lot's of people.  It took me some time to find them.  We sat on a coffee shop and talk for a bit before we decided to move to another location.



It was drizzling then it turned to full blast rain when got to the new location.

How Come?





How come these past days I am reminded of you?
What I read about, what I hear about.
Funny, even my folks at one point reminded me of you.

How come you've become part of my dilemma and depression?
Even you're long gone to a place that I can never be, perhaps.
How come?

Dallas String Quartet Electric - California Girls


Was browsing through Youtube and found this one. It's a pop song redefined and quite sophisticated if you ask me ☺


And our beloved Wikipedia sums a definition of a string quartet very well and it is a musical ensemble of four string players – usually two violin players, a violist and a cellist – or a piece written to be performed by such a group.

Life's Ironies



 
As I indulge on my breakfast here at my usual spot (the study table near the window) and appreciate the warmth brought by the big bright sun penetrating through the sunshine-yellow curtains that mom set up.  I cannot help but overhear the whining of some  students passing by about the scorching sun.  How ironic, I thought, when some of our countrymen are threatened by flood and rainfall at this time and here are others wincing quite the opposite.

Dear Manong Jeepney Driver,

We know that you are affected by the unstoppable price increase of the diesel but it is wise to note that does not warrant you not to return our change for the fare we paid. You are not the only one who is affected by this price increase.  Concurrently, you are not the only one who has problems.

Haunting Nostalgia


But we carry on our backs the burden time always reveals
In the lonely light of morning
In the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything, I've held so dear

I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I've messed up better
I should know
So don't come 'round here
And tell me I told you so

Heaven bent to take my hand
I have nowhere left to turn
I've lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know

Oh, they turned their heads embarrassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step, you'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

***

I was sifting through some files on my computer (read as: reorganizing) when I managed to stumble into a long lost music folder. Played a couple songs and these lines hit me, maybe because it's a haunting truth? The song is entitled, Fallen by Sarah McLachlan ☺

The "Other Way" On How To Eat An Apple



Since mum recently bought a big supply of apples and almost all of us in this household does not really fancy apple pie, we have our own way of eating the said fruit. Mine's this one:

Brian's way of eating an apple ☺


How did I arrive with the one pictured above? Simple. I usually have my apples sliced into thin "polygonal" pieces and dump them in a bowl . Then, I slice a calamansi and drizzle it on top.  Yep, it's tangy yet sweet. Another bonus, the acid on the calamansi prevents the apple slices from turning brown even though they are exposed to the air ☺

Rumor Has It


 Rumor (as Wikipedia defines it) - is often viewed as "an unverified account or explanation of events circulating from person to person and pertaining to an object, event, or issue in public concern".  Adding to that, there's this particular song from Adele which is my current LSS ☺

Panaad Festival


April 9-15 2012 marks the 19th Panaad sa Negros Festival.  Dubbed as the Mother of All Festivals in Negros Occidental, it is celebrated annually every April here in Bacolod City, the capital of Negros Occidental.  Panaad means promise or vow in Hiligaynon dialect.  The festival serves as a thanksgiving to the Almighty and a prayer for a good life.  Formerly (1993), it was being celebrated on the Provincial Capital Park around the lagoon area until they have established dedicated location for the said event and named it, Panaad Park which also has a stadium, football field, swimming pool and track and field.

The event features 32 festivals coming from 13 cities and 19 towns in Negros Occidental.  Since the location is now permanent, it is easy for the participating town or city to establish something that would serve as their icons. And here are some:

Valladolid's Booth

Sagay's Booth

Toboso's Booth (yes, the booth is the fish)

Talisay's Booth
A little confession. I haven't visited the festival for this year yet, been busy with someone and something around the house (thus these are old pics). Still have remaining days though so I hope to post another entry for this ☺

I went out with a friend last time since we agreed that we need to fill each other out with what was going on with our lives so we ended up spending the late afternoon at this particular coffee shop.  While my friend was eying for a good spot to settle down, I was busy selecting what cake to choose from the display when I noticed this cute barista beaming a smile on me as he waited for my order.  Made a little chat and have almost forgotten that I have company.  Now to the question:

Never Come Around


Spend all your days with your head in the clouds
You listen too close you don't hear a sound
All of this is harder than it ever appeared
Nothing in your way, no one's on your side
Nothing will change your one track mind
Everyone around has got so much they want to say

Thoughts of crashing down
And lashing out
Getting lost and swept away
Why should I try to be something I'm not?
You can count on one thing
I will never come around
Here is goodbye if you try to change my mind
You can count on one thing
I will never come around never come around
Never come around, never come around

A sleepless night staring at the stars
Wondering how close they really are
If you don't reach and try
You will leave life asking why
You got high and you can't come down
Look at me I never left the ground
Yeah I've got stains on my knees
While all your dreams blew away with the breeze

The cost of letting go
Is more than you know
At least that's what they say

Why should I try to be something I'm not?
You can count on one thing
I will never come around
Here is goodbye if you try to change my mind
I don't care what anyone thinks
I will never come around never come around
Never come around, never come around

It's the pretty pain I love
It's the reason that I bleed
And still the reason I am okay, alright
Okay, alright

Why should I try to be something I'm not?
You can count on one thing
I will never come around
Here is goodbye if you try to change my mind
I don't care what anyone thinks
I will never come around never come around
Never come around, never come around

Begin Again


I wish I could bottle up this feeling
Send it down the river
I wish I had the words to say
I’d come up with something clever
I wish I could move and go unnoticed
Not so plain to see
Like a picture out of focus
Though it’s right in front of me


How do I face another day when I can’t take it?
How do I turn another page when I’m faking?
How do I package up the pain when I can’t shake it?
It’s over now
How do I begin again?


I haven’t always been this bitter
I haven’t always loved the rain
I used to sit and watch the sunset ‘til it rose up again
People passing by me now
I’m lost out in the crowd
I’m not asking for a second back
I just want a way out


How do I face another day when I can’t take it?
How do I turn another page when I’m faking?
How do I package up the pain when I can’t shake it?
It’s over now
How do I begin again?


It’s been a hard fought battle
Don’t want to quit while I’m behind
Pouring salt in all my open wounds
I’m cut back down to size


How do I face another day when I can’t take it?
How do I turn another page when I’m faking?
How do I package up the pain when I can’t shake it?
It’s over now
How do I begin again?
How do I never fall apart when I’m breaking?
How do I catch a falling star when I’m through chasing?
Somebody point me to the start
In case it’s not over now
How do I begin again?

Yesterday (March 23) was a date to mark. Well, not for me directly but to my friend.  So what's up with the said date? No biggie, he just nearly died during this day.  It was heart attack.  The said date marked his 1st year after that incident which scared the hell out of us.  He's doing a little better now but his battle is still being fought. He's scheduled to go under the knife later this year.  We are here for you, Nic. You are not alone. Wish you well buddy! ☺

Couched



It was a lazy afternoon, summer has just begun and it was too early to process the clearance so we (my cousin and I) decided to stay at home. Kami ang taong bahay. He was living with us for some time in his life. I was at 5th grade and he was a freshman.


A little earlier that afternoon, I was hearing some sounds downstairs. Prolly, my cousin was fixing his guitar or something. I don't know. I seldom go out of my room during my study days.  My room is at the second floor. Then suddenly, everything became quiet.  The sun was high and the room temperature was starting to be unbearable so I decided to go down.

Moving Closer


When you smile,
Everything's in place.
I've waited so long,
Can make no mistake.

All I am,
Reaching out to you.
Can't be scared,
Got to make a move.

If only you'll come a way with me.
Keep me close
And don't let go.

Inch by inch we're moving closer.
Feels like a fairytale ending.
Take my heart,
This is the moment.
I'm moving closer to you.
I'm moving closer to you.

Who'd thought that I breathe the air
Spinning round your atmosphere.
I hold my breathe,
Falling into you.
Break my fall
And don't let go.

Inch by inch we're moving closer.
Feels like a fairytale ending.
Take my heart,
This is the moment.
I'm moving closer to you.
I'm moving closer to you.

Moving closer...
Closer to you.
Moving closer,
I'm moving closer to you.

Are you the kind that's subtle or the kind that's blunt?
The scenario: You are about to break up with someone.



Will you break it to the person gently or will you say it in deadpan?

You Are Special To Me


Once in a while, we meet people with a smile as warm as hug
And love that never stops giving.

Someone who stands out from the crowd
To reminds us of what really matters in life.

When we are blessed and enriched by a person like this.
We find a way to say:

"You are special to me..."






...and that's what I am telling you ☺

won't you believe in a love forevermore
how do you leave it in a drawer

We have been friends since high school.  The friendship has now lasted for eleven years and a month.  But every chance I have been given, I am dead sure, I am madly in love with the person. I have always thought I have met the one.

Pandora's Box : Question #2


Filipinos are known for being very family oriented. And this question is always a very tough one to deal:


Would you rather stay together with your family even though it's hard to defray the expenses with the money that you are currently earning or would you rather brave through loneliness and being separated to earn a lot and address the issue of expenses?

Far Away


With what have recently happened, the earthquake, tsunami scare, panic and all.  It seemed like everyone had just finished fighting a war. You know that feeling?  It really felt exhausting.  And I guess we are headed home for a much deserved rest.   Luckily, I found something that could describe what I currently feel and something that reminds me that the end is still far away and everyone who still part of the living needs to endure life as it is ☺

Aftermath


February 06, 2012 at around 11:49 AM - the earth shook, I personally felt it.  Mom was telling everyone to go out of the house -head to the street where it's more open, safer.  I was hesitant -rebellious as I am, but when I saw grandma, who was just sitting quietly on a chair, still keeping composure. I obliged with mom, but seeing to it that I brought grandma with me.

Pandora's Box: Question #1



This would be the first (of the many questions I intend to post) regarding almost everything.  I'd like to name it Pandora's Box of Questions.  We all know our Greek Literature during our English classes so there's no need to explain ☺  Now, to the first question.



Will you or will you not let your lover-to-be read your blog? Or even, let him/her know that you blog?

No Roses, Nor Chocolates Though Will Probably Have Red Hearts


It's February and we all know what's the most awaited event for this month. Yep, Valentine's Day which is celebrated every 14th of the month. Albeit, history tells us that this celebration is to honor St. Valentine, there was no lovely element about his story. In fact, he was persecuted.  Having said that, that could be the reason why others tend to brood on this day when the general population of humanity is caught up in the euphoria of another gift-giving and love-sharing ☺

The One That Got Away


Was reviewing my FB wall and found this video recommended by a former colleague. What do you know? I think I found the one that got away.  Yeah, this one's a cover song but hey, these guys reinvents it and adds their own spice. This one made me remember the thing called, "Regret".

The Venn Diagram of Men


I was browsing through my Facebook wall while waiting for the sandman to visit me and checked out what a friend has posted. Guess that Venn Diagram of Relationship has a gender-specific counterpart ☺


So, to which union or subset do you belong? Hehehe...

The Rabbit in the Year of the Black Water Dragon (2012)



Rabbit is perhaps his master's favorite in the year 2012 of the Black Water Dragon. He will not have as many problems as other members of the zodiacal circle, but can achieve much success only if he wants. Rabbit can successfully correct the mistakes of last year, correct his activities, which for some reason took a false direction. A representative of this zodiac sign will learn to cope with difficulties, he will be in the spotlight and will be in a combat and optimistic mood.

Ache


"Sometimes, all you need a breather... " that's a common cliche but true.  If you think you are nearing your stress threshold but couldn't afford a good getaway due to some looming deadlines or other commitments then try to get a massage.  It fast, convenient and will synch you back to your usual rhythm ☺

The Venn Diagram of Relationship


I have first shared this on my Tumblr page and got a lot of responses and reblogs.  Albeit simplified, it rather covers the broader elements of a relationship which is presented in a funny yet logical way. 

Here it is...  




With what and who I am currently into, I can generally say, I am headed for the subset of Set F and Set S as of the moment.  Nyahahahahahaha Go figure! ☺

Which Group Do You Belong?


Here's a more visual and easier way to classify an anime character, it just so happen that I cannot recover the female counterpart for this figure so let's just stick with the male gender.  Basically, the classification is based on the body structure.   Furthermore, you might want to know to which you group you belong ☺

Breaking The Habit


There was this question running in my head. And while I was sifting through some materials on Youtube, I stumbled on to Linkin Park's Breaking the Habit.





I guess my question just got answered!
And yes, this became the current LSS ☺

The One I Refused



Having raised to a family who likes to cook (which equates to the love of eating), I was molded how to appreciate good food and taught to respect how to prepare them.  Existing in this world for 24 years, I do certainly know how to cook, raging from the native dishes to the more "pa-sosyal" gourmet cooking, And since every thesis has an antithesis, there's this one "dish" that I am always refusing to cook ☺
