I came home early so I can sleep early but I'm still up. Congratulations to me! Continue reading

So the woman asked the hot guy seated beside her. "None. I guess," he whispered. Deep inside, the daydreamer who also happened to be not-so-sober knew he lied. It was almost like, I've got some but for the sake of this night I'm saying none. So she looked at him... Continue reading

I know. Crazy right? That's why I say I had the craziest couple of nights. All because this tattoo on my arm kept appearing over and over... in my dreams. Imagine the shock of waking up (this was happening in the dream) and feeling some weird texture on your arm--which... Continue reading

I was out with the gang last night and someone mentioned “tuklas.” How the six-letter word roused my interest wouldn’t be a surprise if someone is from Borongan. The word also means a talent search done annually as part of the fiesta celebration. So we headed to the town plaza... Continue reading

In the mountains, writers are a scarce commodity. I didn’t know writing could put me in this awkward spot. The moment I started writing, all I really wanted was to make sure I had a way of getting back to my thoughts lest I forgot them. All the writing I... Continue reading

It's a pain working with the pictures. And because my hardware isn't that powerful, it takes a long time to edit each picture. So if you notice, the levels aren't the same for all, something the person who took care of the year book should've taken care of. Anyway, let... Continue reading

On June 19, 2011, the country will celebrate Rizal's 150th birthday. According to John Nery over ANC last June 17, 2011, the last two decades of college students were mis-educated about Jose Rizal. I'm sure my college professor, Atty Rene Abcede wasn't the perfect Rizal teacher but he did quite... Continue reading

NOTE: If you have a hard time relating to this post, it most probably wasn't meant for you to read. ;) I'm not even sure if I already have the courage to write about what I am about to write. I'm not sure whether I already have the right words.... Continue reading

The sun shines in the east so you prolly think we have lousy sunsets in Eastern Samar. Well guess what, you're wrong. In Mercedes town, this is how beautiful the scene becomes at dusk. Mercedes is the town right after Salcedo and before Guiuan. That is, if you're coming from... Continue reading

Ever wondered why most family names in Borongan starts with the first letter of the alphabet? Aren’t Afables, Alegres, Abellas, and Aldes all over the town? Our mayor is an Abunda, and our vice-mayor is an Anacta. Well if you wondered, let me tell you that this is no coincidence.... Continue reading

I'm not sure in the place where you're from if a sight like this is an everyday thing--but it sure as hell isn't in mine. Anyway, I found out two days ago that today May 28, is the National Flag Day in the Philippines. So in my tiny town of... Continue reading

I love the sunflower. Here in the Philippines, summer has been mostly rainy and cold. Thanks for sharing these photos. :)

That's what I realized recently. Of course I'm sure the thought had been somewhere in my brain for a long time--I just couldn't find the right words to use. Until, Jodi Sagorin wrote an entry about "saying no to lame-sauce and mediocrity. I AM GUILTY because I write tons of... Continue reading

This is my first wordless post. I am not saying anything more. Or, yes, I might say a few things. 1. The pregnant girl Anna Mae--That's one of my bestest gal pals in the universe and she is FULL. Not sure how far along she is, though I remember her... Continue reading

Well, maybe not really that fatal but that's what people from that place tell you. At least when you're on your way there. You can wear slippers once you get there but on the road (if you can even call it a real road) it's safer not to. So try... Continue reading

This website thinks Kate Middleton's wedding gown was inspired by Grace Kelly's iconic gown. Well, style-wise, Kelly (who later became a princess in Monaco) is an icon. But closer to home, Lea Salonga is equally elegant. I think, her wedding gown, especially the upper part looks like Kate more. Kate's... Continue reading

It's one kilometer in length. It's equivalent to 30 stories high. It moves you on a 100 kilometer per hour speed. It's the longest, tallest, and steepest zipline experience as of today in all 7, 107 islands here in the Philippines. So, where's this place anyway? It's in Agas-Agas, Sogod,... Continue reading
