It doesn't get any easier

Posted on November 28, 2010

It’s that time of the year again, the conclusion of a full month of motherly love, regular family gatherings, and catching up on stories. I dread stepping onto the NAIA pavement for it means saying goodbye once again. We wouldn’t see each other for another year. Year after year, for four years now, I pray to the heavens to provide me with all the strength in the world in stifling my tears. I didn’t want her to see me cryRead More

In Search of Something Better

Posted on September 24, 2010

(To say this post is delayed is an understatement) Almost all the time, we do not realize that what we have is really our best possession no matter how worthless it may seem. And oftentimes, because of naiveté (or maybe from sheer lack of gratitude for our blessings) we try (with our damn best) to escape from it and assume that we’re headed for something much better. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that what we asked for will be givenRead More

isang bulong sa kalawakansapagkat hindi ko alamkung paano sisimulanang mga katanungan na pumupuno sa aking isipan isang bulong sa kalawakansapagkat hindi ko siguradokung sa iyo nga sasabihinang takot na pumipintigsa aking saloobin isang bulong sa kalawakandahil walang katiyakankung sa iyo nga’y makakaratingang aking kahilinganna matagal nang gustong matupad isang bulong sa kalawakandahil ako’y nagbabakasakali lamangkung bibigyan mo ng kasagutano kung iyo man lang papansininang aking damdamin

On Taking Risks

Posted on April 4, 2010

They say you should, from time to time, move out of your comfort zone so that you’d know your true limit. From as far as I could remember, I have never really been much of a risk-taker. My decisions are based on whether I could do something easily or if I would gain some thing out of it. In short, I would never do something unless I knew I was the “sure winner.” Not really a good thing considering theRead More

From a Wish to a Prayer

Posted on March 20, 2010

Now, this is serious. My head’s been in a real daze this week. Background I was assigned this project when i started with the Company. It was more like “handed over” to me in the sense that I wasn’t given any preludes or introductions as to what it is about. Good thing the project’s name is very straightforward, otherwise I would still have a hard time figuring out what it’s about. Anyway, when I was finally briefed into it, IRead More

Wishing On Another Silly Star

Posted on March 11, 2010

(This is supposed to be a serious [read — dramatic] post] Please forgive the title. I just couldn’t think of something that could better describe this post. Number one — wishes, to some extent, are like jokes. They are “half-meant” (or in a way, sincere) although I believe that the percentage of truth in a wish is around 75 to 80%. Number two – I’m wishing on a silly star because I reckon it is only he who could understandRead More

J.D. has Just Died

Posted on February 3, 2010

I was almost in disbelief when I read the news at yahoo. J.D. Salinger, author of Catcher in the Rye, is already dead. Foolish as it may sound but I have always thought he was immortal. Nobody probably thought he was already so old (he was 91 when he died) because he kept himself isolated from society. Being one of the most mysterious writers of the century, J.D.’s death will surely do nothing but add more to the mystique thatRead More

Dim Sum Meals

Posted on December 17, 2009

For the second consecutive day today, I am having rice and siomai for lunch. Well, yesterday it was actually fried siomai with garlic rice and now its steamed sharks fin siomai with yang chow rice (looks more like java rice though). This time, however, I bought wanton noodle soup so that I’d have something warm to sip as I have my fill. I decided to eat alone in front of my PC since my colleagues have already had lunch much,Read More

Counting Days

Posted on November 17, 2009

I served my last day at the Bank last October 30, 2009 — after exactly two years and two months of working for one of the country’s largest private commercial banks. To the people who know what I’ve been through at the office, this is one of the happiest days of my life. I was in a state of bliss indeed. Why wouldn’t I be, at least I’d be out of the rut where I (and my colleagues) seem toRead More

Cabby Conversations

Posted on September 21, 2009

Have you ever started a conversation with a cab driver? I guess only a few would say yes. As for me, it’s very seldom that I would start a conversation with a cab driver but when I do, it’s usually out of boredom or to keep myself awake. Don’t think that I’m being a snob or anything, it’s just that most of the time I would prefer just sitting there and enjoying the ride than talking (out of stress, perhaps?Read More

First Post

Posted on September 20, 2009

(this is my second post na pala. i forgot that i wrote one article last december but didn’t remember to publish it. i just saw it when my interest in blogging was revived today. hehe) i’ve always wanted to start blogging but kept on postponing because i can’t seem to think of a good topic to blog about. kakahiya naman since most bloggers talk about topics that range from being socially relevant to profound, informative and funny. as they say,Read More
