Mga Patay Gutom sa MOA
Bagong taon kaya’t nagdesisyyon ang mga patay gutom na mag Enchanted Kingdom. Kaso matapos magsigising ng pasado alas otso, nag-almusal lang at nagsitulog ulit hanggang alas dose media. Magaling! Magaling!
A Strange Filipino in a Filipino Gathering
I saw an invitation card on our dining table. It says, Ninong (followed by my husband’s full name) on the envelope, and inside is a card with the baby’s photo, name, the date and time and venue of the event. I looked at my husband and said, another inaanak.
Sixty in the City
“Habang maliliit pa ang mga anak mo, parang gusto mo, lumaki na sila agad. Kasi, ang harap mag-alaga ng bata. Pero pag nagsilaki naman, halos gusto mong ibalik ang panahon, ibalik sila sa ‘yo. Kasi, pakiramdam mo, ang layo na nila. Hindi mo na sila maabot. Pero wala kang magagawa. Sinasabi lang natin na ang…
Waking Up to A Brand New Day
You wake up earlier than usual, thinking of the dream you just had. Not the worst, also not the best. Then you started thinking about work and other things. But you thought you’ll stop thinking and just lie on your bed, pull your blanket until your shoulders and watch the thin rays of light peeping…
Today is my 5th day without any caffeine intake. Five days ago, my friend and I wanted to practice free diving hence I did not drink coffee. Coffee is not allowed when free diving. That morning I was walking like a zombie. Yawning every few minutes. No energy. My eyes, teary. Dizzy. By afternoon, I…
Last Flight Out
*To the island that I used to love The last time I left you, I wasn’t able to hold back my tears as I took what I thought was my last seaplane journey out. I was sad. Really sad. You’ve been my home for two years. And the memories I have collected can be compared…
Writing with Feelings
Paulit-ulit akong nagdadrama dito sa aking blog tungkol sa aking trabaho at nandito na naman ako at magdadrama ulit. Ang drama ko sa buhay ay parang fungi na kahit pahiran ng sandamakmak na Nizoral Cream ay hindi maubos ubos (this is not a sponsored post ha ha). How many times have I complained about my…
Talk To Me…
…I have some stories to tell. I’ve read Kat’s Coffee Post today and it was just in time. I felt some urge to write something earlier but I can’t figure out how I’m gonna write it. Then I saw Kat’s post. (Sorry Kat, my lazy ass is just gonna use your format 😀 )
The Resident Spider
A spider is living on top of my fridge. I noticed its appearance lately. I don’t know what makes it interesting for that spider to live on top of the fridge as there’s nothing there but a Tupperware, some snacks but still sealed and an unopened bottle of Nutella. So honestly, no good treat for…
Can Tissue Paper Save the Human Race?
I took my stock of tissue paper from our store room, a plastic with 10 rolls in it. As I was walking my way to my room, I saw two guys walking towards me. I thought, what would happen if I smash this plastic of tissue rolls on their heads? Would it hurt? I imagined…
Lucy and Flappy Bird
It was around six in the evening and we were driving along the North Luzon Express Way when a series of Dashboard Confessional played on the radio. The sun was almost setting. The fields were so green; the grains waiting to be harvested gave a golden touch to the greenery. The silhouette of the mountain…
Let’s Meet at the Horizon
A tremendous excitement begins as the day ends. The excitement of two powerful forces attracted to each other.
