This was my first New Year in the island.
Since I worked in the Maldives, I always got the chance to go home for the New Year except this time because of the changes on our leave plans.
Our team had a dinner around 8:30pm. A lot left the table about 9:30pm and four of us stayed until midnight, discussing about the the wrongs and rights of our festive season and where and how else can we improve. Continue reading “My First New Year in the Island + Rico Blanco’s Nostalgic Video”
I woke up from a chaotic dream. My eyes half open, I saw the orange sky from the glass curtain-less window. I closed my eyes and opened them again. Checking if I was still in a dream.
Half awake, I checked the time from my mobile phone. 5:30 am. I closed my eyes, wanting to sleep once again. But I didn’t want to miss this sunrise. For when have I last seen the sunrise here in my hometown? I could not even remember. Continue reading “Fiery Morning Sky”

Ang hirap magsulat kapag matagal kang natengga. Actually, ang mahirap ay yung makapagsulat ng magandang piyesa.
So isasantabi ko muna ang pagpiga ng aking utak at magkukwento na lang ng aming misadbentyurs. Umuwi kasi ako, nagbakasyon ng saglit. Dalawang linggo. Pero andaming nangyari. Epic. Continue reading “Kwentuhan Tayo”
On the morning of Holy Friday, we parked our car in front of a vulcanizing shop to get both our front tires changed to gear up for a 2-hour drive. I was inside the car browsing through my news feed when a group of shirtless men hitting their bleeding backs, passed by. It was amusing and not at the same time. I have seen this pilgrim every year on TV, newspapers and social media so there’s nothing new to this except that this time, I was amused to see this with my very own eyes.

Sometimes we look at the mirror and feel bad about what we see. Those annoying pimples and those belly fats bulging out. That kinky hair or that super skinny body. So ugly, you may tell yourself. Continue reading “When You Don’t Feel Good About Your Body”
I was at my lowest yesterday. I couldn’t understand myself. I was so demotivated at work. I was lazy and I didn’t want do anything. I was analyzing what the problem is. My bosses are good and we have an amazing team in the department. The company is good. The people in the island treats me well. So whats wrong? Maybe I am just burned out or over worked. Maybe, I need a break. Continue reading “Finding Odd Things While Searching for Inspiration”

I apologize in advance if I won’t be able to write the way sports writer do, but anyway, the whole point here is not about the sport itself. Continue reading “Winning, Losing & Trying”
Andaming ganap sa buhay ko. Kape sa umaga, kape bago magtanghali, kape matapos mananghalian, kape bago magmeryenda, kape ulit ang meryenda. Sa sobrang dami ng kaganapan sa buhay ko, kape na lang ang nasa utak ko. Nasaan na ang paghihirap ko nung Oktubre na halos maipasok ako sa Coffee-holics Anonymous para lang maiwasan ang pagkakape? Pero heto na naman ako.
