Speak Up Your Mind (7)


 
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.

Sincerely,
Your Commuters ☺

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 ☺
