Sometimes, it is the most trivial of things that crack that hard shell and breaks into the deepest and most fragile part that you ever so protected. One thug and you are shattered. The type of brokenness that will make you curl yourself in a fetal position between your three pillows, tucked in the sanctuary that is your blanket as you stay late and cry yourself to sleep.

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”
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.

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 him. Continue reading “The Resident Spider”
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 a scenario where I’m in trouble and I can use the plastic of tissue rolls as self defense. I guess it could save me, buy me time to run away from the suspect.

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 ranges, dark grey, almost black and the clouds, puffy, painted with different shades of blue, orange, grey and pink. I rolled down the car window and let the warm afternoon breeze touch my face. Continue reading “Lucy and Flappy Bird”
A tremendous excitement begins as the day ends.
The excitement of two powerful forces attracted to each other. Continue reading “Let’s Meet at the Horizon”
I have always been fascinated by women wearing Hijab. I have been curious as to how to wear it, how does it feel to wear it and how would I look like if I would wear it. Continue reading “I Tried Wearing a Hijab (sort of)”
