It was a slow and easy Sunday and my mind was wandering while I was in the morning briefing.
It was the ‘around the table’ time and it was our time to bring our news or any info to the table. My turn came and I didn’t have anything important to say. I then listened to what my other colleagues had to say. Continue reading “Island Guys – Doctor Quail”
It was a very warm afternoon and I was sweating in and out, standing under the heat of the Maldivian Sun, waiting for a taxi to take me for a ride to the ferry terminal.

Nagpunta ako sa bangko para panandaliang ipahiram ang aking perang pinaghirapan sa napakayaman nitong may-ari nang sa ganoon ay patuloy pa itong makapamili ng madaming lupa at makapagpatayo ng madaming mall.
Pagdating ko sa bangko ay ga-sawa ang pila. Bilang nagtapos naman ako sa unibersidad na tinawag na Pila Uli Pila ay mani na lang ang pilang ito. Continue reading “Magpapahiram na nga lang, Pipila Pa”
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.

It is 23:54 already and my husband is now fast asleep.
I sit here beside him, wide awake, reading Modern Love and catching up on some of your posts, my only literary activity since… I don’t know when. Continue reading “Hello There!”
Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I have last posted. Been so busy lately and hope everyone’s doing well! (Chos! This opening is not so me LOL).
Work had taken up my life for the last few weeks, and I went back to drinking coffee to keep me awake. Sometimes even though I am fully awake, I just need a little kick to get started. Continue reading “Automatic Shutdown”
I can’t believe I am already 33 years old.
I can remember when I was just learning the meaning of the word decade and I can’t believe I’ve been into three already. Continue reading “You Turned 33 and You Didn’t Think About Anything”
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 through the curtains, giving light to the dark old room you are in.

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 already felt the impending headache. Continue reading “Decaffeinated”
