She told me that there was a bright yellowish-white disc floating in the sky, and those dark circular patches populating its peripheries like plowed pimples were staring at her in a way quite menacing. I told her that it was only the moon, and that she close her eyes instead. I never meant to insult her intelligence. She knew it was the moon. I knew that she knew that. But there was an understandable expression of anxiety and nervousness and uncertainty emblazoned on her face. The feeling of nakedness, the state of vulnerability, and the breeze of air smashing every... Continue reading

Stunning visual imageries that not only explore, but also transcend the human boundaries of value-judgment and moral decision-making. A good movie, but not good enough a swan song film for the late Heath Ledger. There’s so much realism and surrealism at the same time, it makes you wonder whether the world we’re living in right now really exists. Are we physically real, concrete, tangible, alive; or are we simply fragments of God’s imaginations? Continue reading

and we loved it. We didn't aim for recognition. We didn't aim for fame. We didn't aim for the top. They were achievable ambitions, but unnecessary. Despite living in this world where the common human pursuit is to be the best the greatest the most powerful our goal was nevertheless firm and strong: We aimed not to be the any of these. Rather, we aimed to make the best out of our experiences; to help other people in our own little and big ways; to make the best times of our lives. And, of course, the two years we spent...

In this puny planet, or at least within the confines of Economics, some dude named Frank Knight woke up one sunny morning and for some unexplainable reason established a distinction between risk and uncertainty. As if anybody really cared. Well, somebody has to, right? Although it may seem that both are conveniently interchangeable in everyday language, “uncertainty must be taken in a sense radically distinct from the familiar notion of risk, from which it has never been properly separated…. The essential fact is that ‘risk’ means in some cases a quantity susceptible of measurement, while at other times it is... Continue reading

certain voices that make your heart melt like a thick slice of Swiss-style Gruyère cheese or freeze like one whole pint of Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream. But there are only so few of them, I could painlessly count them with my ten wriggly fingers and ten wriggly toes. So that makes 20 wriggly artists/bands all in all. WAHAHAHA corny ko talaga sobraaaaaaahh. fuck me WHATEVER! SHEEESH.. shut up! Allow me to talk summore. Some of them produce some of the greatest songs/albums ever written, but only a handful of them have these rare vocal registers that could... Continue reading

You can't ascribe great cosmic significance to a simple earthly event. Coincidence, that's all anything ever is, nothing more than coincidence. There are no miracles. There is no such thing as fate. Nothing is meant to be. The deep voice of the narrator was awfully right. Serendipity, Fate, Destiny, Soulmates, True Love? It's amazing how human beings can suffer so much from being obsessed and possessed by the orgy of such trivialities that they themselves have created and molded out of thin air. I don't understand how these unbelievably fantastical and fanciful ideas have easily withstood the test of time.... Continue reading

It’s my kind of weather. I like waking up to the smell of grass wafting in the air. I like the rustling music the leaves on the trees make as they dance with the wind. I like looking above the overcast sky. I like how the cool breeze of air gently kisses every inch of my skin. The feel of little raindrops falling on the palms of my hands. How they create splashes on the loamy soil, on grassy patches, on cemented roads, umbrellas of passersby, moving cars, stationary cars, and on children’s happy faces while they run around their...

even when there's no one sittin' there But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home When there's no one there to hold you tight And no one there you can kiss goodnight. My family's new house may now only be a third of the size of our previous one, but there's something nice, warm, and comfortable about this new neighbourhood. I agree with the song, that a house is not a home, but sometimes, it takes a better house to have a better home. I've never felt much more at ease. Dionne Warwick -... Continue reading

The methodology of choosing the right relationships can be paralleled to the conscientious act of masticating food. But before that, you usually decide to eat something that looks initially appetizing; a fried rice meal will most probably look more mouth-watering when placed on china than on a box of Styrofoam, and an ordinary piece of chocolate will most likely draw gastronomic attention if the outside packaging looks elegant and expensive. In this sense, first impressions do count. In a world where a man’s perception is limited to his five senses, it may seem crucial for the opposite sex to extort... Continue reading

There’s something about Medieval music. The monophonic liturgical plainsongs of the Roman Catholic Church, the eerie yet magical melodies of the Gregorian Chants. I like the rusty melodies of Old English instruments fashioned over time, the imageries they convey about an era built on wars and superstitions and plagues and kings and queens, among many others. There’s something about Baroque music and the Classical Period. The ability of the operas to epitomize God’s glorious gift of singing. The contrapuntal harmonies of strings, brass, and woodwinds. The majestic, deep voices of the Church’s pipe organs. The impressive, overwhelming concertos of Bach... Continue reading

with a huge fleet of cumulonimbus clouds that stretched for miles and miles and miles, mindlessly marching across the vast iron sky. Below was an unkempt wooden house swimming on a sea of desert soil. Conspicuously afloat nearby were patches of parchment-coloured grass, a few trees and a herd of animals peacefully waiting for the sun to die beneath a synagogue of mountains perfectly visible from afar. The moon slowly made its presence felt over the other end of the sky, peeling an immiscible layer of red, orange, and indigo. The craters became more and more noticeable, and so did...
