Crumbs of Wisdom (2)




Friendship doesn't necessarily need to be in plain vanilla.  It's fun to try different flavours but of course, each one of us has his/her own favourite ☺

Crumbs of Wisdom (1)



If things do not settle to their own accord then you may need to roll up your sleeve and settle them yourself.

Speak Up Your Mind (3)


 
Show a little care and be a little nicer.  It's not a crime to relay the fare from someone who is sitting far from the driver's seat.  It's not a crime either.  In fact, you might win a friend ☺

Pandora's Box : Question #13


Alrighty. Since I am a bit preoccupied with business meetings and got a little free time before the next one starts and I am typing this entry through my cousin's lappy (will have to purge his browser history and clear the cache to remove the traces after this just to be safe). The thing is that, I can't help posting another Pandora's Box due to the person I met during my first meeting today. Hehehe so here goes, the question:




Did it ever happen to you that you were completely overwhelmed by fascination with the one that you're supposed to have a meeting with?

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 ☺

Pandora's Box : Question #12


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:



Have you ever flirted with a service crew member before?

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?

Speak Up Your Mind (2)



Penitence and Abstinence is not only applicable during the Holy Week or Lenten season. Hence, change does not happen overnight.

The Big Blue Sky


Radix @ Anacade Settlement

The big blue sky always paints serenity even in the war-stricken world of Novus.
