care to chat?

i applaud the team who developed instant messaging. it makes communication cheaper (all you need is an internet connection), easier (type it out), and lovelier!! because of instant messaging, i've acquired and kept close friends. it just shows that even if we don't see each other often, instant messaging is able to bridge the distance between two friends.


kakai - i haven't seen this girl since she graduated from college (3 years ago?). we found ourselves in the internet land through livejournal, me adding her in my contact list, and her doing the same. because we shared the same course and "kengkoy" attitude, we kept in touch by going online every day. when i got a job, i was able to go online all the time. kakai was my daily dose of stories and giddy moments. we found out that we share almost same interests and we laugh about shameful events in our lives. we even have this inside joke that no one else would understand. she's now one of my closest friends ever. even her brother is as crazy as her.
trivia: kakai isn't really her name. she got it from a meme, and i've been using it ever since it was a great hit.


(the one who looks like gma, according to kakai)

beanie - he minored in creative writing and became an instant member of our block. he's the quiet type when you're around him, but once he goes online, he speaks his mind very well. i find it amusing that a guy like him would want to pursue a masters degree in philosophy. hehe, don't get me wrong, i have nothing against philosophy majors. philosophy just didn't like me during college and i couldn't see myself taking up further studies in that field. benny's working the graveyard shift, so i only get to talk to him around 10pm onwards. his job is the most intersting job i have ever seen. he writes for... um... "adult material". :P he can strike up an conversation with the most philosophical statement, or the weirdest word and make sense out of it.
trivia: benny is a guitarist for a metal rock band named descant gott.


reamur - people call him rhem, but i prefer to call him reamur. it has a nice sound to the "ea". i can't remember how he became one of my online close friends. he's batches higher than me and a theater actor. the funny thing is, reamur and i can talk "dirty" without even being dirty about it. no, no, not the X-rated type of dirty, but the kind of dirty that humans do in the bathroom after eating a hefty meal. :P it sounds weird, but reamur makes me smile in those ways. he can say the most stupid thing in the world, but actually, it's one of the best ways to make me smile when i'm sad or angry. we have a favorite ym emoticon: 8-> type it out to see what it looks like.


kwinsi - i sit behind him at work, yet we talk via ym. it makes work more silent, because if instant messaging wasn't invented, we would be kicked out from work because we're two noisy eggheads. if you want to catch kwinsi in action, listen regularly at magic 89.9. you might hear him sing at kelly's portion (12pm-3pm) or join the contests in the afternoon. he's the company's mascot too, because he sings, he acts, he illustrates, he makes libre (whohoo!!), and he loves to poke your arm.


regi - another church friend of mine. we've been friends since we were still in shorts and kiddie wear. we were part of the children's ministry band -- he played the guitar, i played the keyboards. now that we're both working, ym has been our medium for communication. he even helped us during our thesis, making the animation for our logo. he's now an honorary member of the block, blending in with his wacky antics.

>> Sunday, March 25, 2007

last friday was the bloomfields' album launch at eastwood. i wasn't able to go because i watched dreamgirls with my parents (which wasn't a bad movie).

but my friend kwinsi was kind enough to get me an autograped cd, sacrificing his manliness just to get in line with the groupie girls. haha babawi ako promise.

giddy, giddy, joy, joy! my first autographed album, touched and signed by my first favorite band: bloomfields.



i like the look of their cd. it's like a shrunk "plaka" from the 60s. it really completes their image of a "daddy band".

thanks to the forums of bloomfields for some of the pics. i'm taking the pictures you took for personal daydream moments. :P



wala nang iba
by the bloomfields

alala mo

confronting death

>> Friday, March 23, 2007

i realized that i cannot become a doctor.

i've been prepped by my tito before that i become a doctor and follow his footsteps. i promised when i was in grade school. however, to his dismay, i took a different path in college. here i am, a college graduate with a job in creative writing. last year, i was still considering of going back to college to take up biology units and take the nmat.

but now, i have decided that being a doctor is not the path for me.

two days ago, one of our love birds died in front of my eyes. i noticed the rustling of the newspaper in their cage and i found ranier (don't ask me where my mother got that name for that bird) flapping its wings helplessly. it could not fly, only stumble down. it took short and quick breaths that gave me the creeps. i couldn't do anything because i didn't know what was wrong with him. the best that i could do was to stroke it gently and help it stand up whenever it stumbled. the next thing i knew, it was limp and hard, eyes closed. it was mortifying for me, even for a living thing without a soul.

people find me weird when i say i love to watch gory movies. maybe it's my way of preparing myself to seeing dead people in front of my eyes. however, no matter how may cadavers i have seen in csi, or dead soldiers stacked in 300, it's not enough to prepare me for the real thing.

i remember when i passed by a dead person being rolled out in pgh. the body was wrapped in white bed sheets. i knew that scenario too well. i knew well enough that the body wasn't breathing anymore. i felt the chills. it is a different experience when a dead body is right smack in front of you.

i think seeing a loved one or a friend die will also be the end of my sanity. i can't even imagine them on a hospital bed, waiting for that last breath to escape them. i applaud those who have lost a loved one but was still able to hold their head up high and continue with their normal lives. i don't know if i could do the same. at this moment, i feel so weak.

i can't be a doctor because i can't confront death. i guess it's not for me, too.

artist of the week

>> Monday, March 19, 2007

Andrés Fernández Cordón is my artist for the week. he illustrates with simple shapes, yet he inks them like crazy. he captures emotions with the different mouth and eye positions. the color contrast of the character against the background makes his subject float from the screen.

i took two of his illustrations from his website. i can't say that they are my favorite, because i love all of his artwork. i am in love with his work. i might over-analyze the illustrations. but hey, who cares, it's still wonderful.



you can just see how the sun stands out in the raining scene. his eyes are carefully monitoring the weather. the umbrella has a purpose, it serves as a cover to let the night envelope the earth. the sun has done its job for the day, now it's time for him to go home and rest.



the background was meant to be blurry so that you'll focus your eyes on the ant. ants have keen senses, and it can locate food even from a mile. (notice how an army of ants would find its way to your birthday cake after leaving it for just a minute?) ants are always on the look-out for food, working hard for the colony. they work so efficiently and orderly (anthill and the ants lined up towards the anthill).

i'm a frustrated artist. i love to doodle around, on scratch papers, on notebooks, on tissue papers, on my hand, in my planner, etc etc. when our office purchased a drawing tablet for our artist quincy, i invaded his workstation once in a while to sneak in an illustration. if i like my doodle, i'd place them in my deviant art.

hmmm. i'm starting to like this "featuring" thing on artists, pictures, and writers. something to inspire me as i do my work. worksheets here i come!

"Thank you for tuning in to the 60s rock n’ roll mania, where everything is 60s, even your tooth filling. If you want to talk to Lucy in the Sky, turn the dial the number of times you stared at that diamond on your finger. If you want a magical mystery tour to the 60s, look for the good vibrations in your body. Then twist and shake until you have reached Penny Lane. If you want to resurrect any 60s band, then call on Sgt. Pepper and crack at your love. Or if you want an alternative, press the flower button."
-JM Rodriguez
Love Hopes

i am now a bloomfields fan.

it was a blast seeing them on center stage, people on their feet, dancing to their music. it was not just about the "daddy music" that brought people dancing, it was their style. a band consisting of young kids, wearing "daddy suits and ties", sounded like they were born in the 60s and 70s. they were energetic, but they didn't look wild. everyone could sing -- and mind you sing and blend well -- and play the keyboards, guitar and drums. there were times that the players switched places. in a nutshell, they sounded great. i love them na and i'm buying their first album when it's released on the 23rd.

the place had an interesting set up. there were four stages, the main stage, the center stage (situated at the middle of the audience), and two circular podiums at the sides of the place. bloomfields took center stage while the other performance played around the other stages.

i had two favorite parts of the concert, one was the movement pieces on the berlin wall, vietnam war and the civil rights movement. i didn't want a boring history lesson, even if jm was entertaining. so i suggested movement pieces to join jm on the stage. ehe, cheter influence.

my second favorite part was when they brought out this huge transistor radio. it was a segway to the boomfields repertoire, and i really loved it. i typed the spiel at the start of the post because i enjoyed writing it. jm and the kids acted out every line. i loved it.

bloomfields came at the start of the show. i didn't expect them to play at the end, closing the night with people shouting, "more! more! more!" after playing tons of songs and the drummer going wild (he banged on the metal frames of the two side stages), everyone wanted them to play more even if they bowed down to end the night. jm started the chant, "bloomfields, bloomfields, bloomfields!". you could see the enthusiasm on their faces as they ran back to the stage and played two more songs. sweeeeet.

thanks to jm rodriguez for making the night interesting. i'm sorry for making you have four costume changes all throughout the concert. ehe. and even if we don't know each other personally, i'm really thankful for being part of this production. huwaw, jm rodriguez on my script. now that's something.

i couldn't sneaky-sneaky pictures of the stage and the band. besides the fact that it wasn't allowed to take pictures of the event, i was surrounded with the big bosses of the production. even the REAL rahyan carlos was seated behind me so i couldn't really do anything illegal. at first, my heart was pounding on how the script would go. but in all fairness, to the director and the producers, and of course jm rodriguez, it turned out very well.

besides the popcorn and free ice cream inside the convenarium, my tummy's now full and wired.

February Song
by Josh Groban

Where has that old friend gone
Lost in a February song?
Tell him it won't be long
'Til he opens his eyes
opens his eyes

Where is that simple day
Before colors broke into shades?
How did I ever fade
Into this life
Into this life

And I never want to let you down
Forgive me I slip away
When all that I've known is lost and found
I promise you I, I'll come back to you one day

Morning is waking up
And sometimes it's more than just enough
When all that you need to love
Is in front of your eyes
It's in front of your eyes


And I never want to let you down
Forgive me I slip away
Sometimes it's hard to find my ground
'Cause I keep on falling
As I try to get away from this crazy world

And I never want to let you down
Forgive me I slip away
When all that I've known is lost and found
I promise you I, I'll come back to you one day

Where has that old friend gone
Lost in a February song?
Tell him it won't be long
'Til he opens his eyes
Opens his eyes

the sun is smiling

>> Tuesday, March 13, 2007

i owe God a million thanks. a million is not even enough to express my gratitude on the things that are happening in my life right now. i feel that everything is going fast for me and i can't keep up with all the opportunities and blessings that He is bestowing upon me.

for some, miracles mean blood drops forming on the image of a saint, or an image revealing itself on the wall. i think otherwise. miracles for me are events happening in a person's life, and how they are able to emerge victorious amidst a terrible ordeal. droplets of blood won't make you successful, an image on a wall won't make you a soldier for God. my kind of miracles will actually bring out the image of God in me, a reflection of how great our God is.

1. galileo



my current work is one of the best miracles in my life. sometimes, when i'm in bed and i look at my life, i'm really thankful that i didn't get a job with the "miranda priestly" type of boss. i got a job that i want, a job that is connected to my line of interest. i never thought that i would land a job that concerns writing and children, but here i am. i can't explain how God placed me in this position where i can go home, smiling and content with what i have.

2. racket


no, no, no, not the tennis racket. :P come to think of it, i shouldn't ask for anything because i have a great job. then this opportunity comes to write for a concert. it's something for me, because the people behind this production are well-known. they could actually hire someone better than me, or who knows the craft well. they opened a door for me, and somewhere in the heavens, a miracle happened... and it was for me. the fruit of my labor will be produced this coming saturday, at the convenarium of crossroad 77. i'm not asking you to come, but please pray and support the mission and vision of the next unbound generation.

3. more opportunities

i said in my lj that you don't really need to be the smartest in your class to get a good job.

i've been bugged by this school ever since they promoted for openings. i've applied there before, but since i didn't have any experience and expertise in teaching, i didn't get in. now, they asked for my resume and they have kept on reminding me to send in my resume. i gave a letter stating that i can't leave my wonderful job though i wanted to get in.

they called yesterday and told me that i have an interview. i thought they didn't understand my letter, but they still want to go through the interview process. it's another miracle, an opportunity waiting to be grabbed. the notice is too fast, i tell God. why me? why not diba? i'll try it out, maybe i could convince them with something else.

minutes before i got a call from them, another opportunity came. i don't want to talk about it in details because i haven't sat down with them and really discussed what they want to do with my work. basta, it has something to do with what i have written in the past. a big break, i would say. i just can't believe that i talked to someone like him on the telephone.


there are still a lot of things i should be thankful about. a journal is not enough to show my gratitude. a million thanks is not the key before i move on. i guess what God is telling me right now is that i shouldn't waste time. there are a lot of things to be done for the country and for the next generation and time is running out. soon, i won't be 20 anymore. soon i won't be as active as i am now. this is the time for me to shine for His Glory. i can't put it aside. i have been given something by the Greatest and i should give what is due.





here comes the sun
and i say, "it's all right"

boyfriend-boyfriend-an

>> Saturday, March 10, 2007

it's a month after the hearts' day, but nothing is ever due when it comes to love.

sometimes i'm weirded out by the million dollar red question, "may boyfriend ka na?"

people expect too much of teenagers (whoops, i realized that i don't have the 'teen' attached to my age anymore), that every time they see me, that question is always the start of a conversation. does it always have to follow that when you meet a young person, you need to have a 'taken' status with you?

yes, i'm one of the many who carry the membership card of the NBSB (no boyfriend since birth). most of the time, i'm thankful that i'm part of this universal club. now that i'm older, i'm happy that i didn't have any attachments with other people. looking back, life is happier without a boyfriend.

thank God for strict parents who wouldn't even let you go out on a friday night. when i was in my highschool days, i would sulk all week when i couldn't go malling with my friends. i always stayed home. whenever my friends from church would meet up in a house and just have a 'jamming session', complete with a movie marathon, i always said 'no' to them. sometimes i wished that they wouldn't invite me anymore, to spare me from the torture of not being able to go. up to know, i still wish that i was able to join them. past is past, i can't turn back time.

there's still this feeling of injustice, but i try to look at the rationale of it. maybe i was too vulnerable and acquire a boyfriend right away, or i would fall for the wrong guy. or maybe they weren't trustworthy enough. i don't know. i've gained close friends from them, and some of them strayed away from my trust. most of my close friends from church are guys. wait, all of my close friends from church are guys. my secrets are safe with the guys. *shrug* i just don't trust the girls to keep my secrets. now that i'm older, with more common sense (i hope. :P ), i feel that having this mature relationship with my guy friends could be a result of those times that i wasn't allowed to go out. i'm not scared anymore of them thinking about courting me, because i know they won't. i treat them as my big brothers. one of them even calls me "little sis". they're the brothers i never had. i can say that i love them without adding malice to it.

i matured over the "need boyfriend now" status. college wasn't about looking for the best boyfriend-slash-alalay-slash-driver, but about having friends to keep you alive all the way. people envy our block because we still remained intact after our first year. we graduated with an identity of unity, no big fights, no division, no separation. even if some transferred schools, they still remained close contacts. relationships did not occur in the block because we all treated each other as one big family. the 'rents were nice to my "going out" status, they've allowed me to go out with them. trust is all that matters.

i'm not abnormal, i still have crushes. i like a lot of guys and they end with the word "like". my friends and i would joke about relationships with these crushes. they were mere admiration and a way to brighten one's day.

it's nice and cute to see a couple HHWW (holding hands while walking). i don't envy them. i can't even imagine myself having one, nor am i excited to have one. i'm enjoying my singlehood so much, having to spend my salary on my family and myself, buying all the starbucks coffee i want, and purchasing the books i've been dying to buy since college. a reason i give when people ask me about "boyfriend-dom" is that i don't have time to commit. after work, i go home, watch tv a little, and sleep. wednesdays, i devote my time to watching csi. thursdays, justice. fridays are movie dates with my parents. saturdays are a day of rest. sunday, church. where in the world will i fit the "boyfriend"? i'd rather not have one, than be in a relationship and fight over "giving time".

or maybe i'm not ready. i asked my parents what their reaction would be if they saw me with someone else, HHWW in the mall. mom said it was ok, as long as the guy courted the parents first before courting me. dad joked that he shouldn't be gay. i asked myself and i couldn't give a decent answer. it's just the number one sign: i'm not ready for it, so i don't want it.

it's not an immediate concern. there are more important things to give attention to: such as work, church, my craft, my family, and God. i have friends. i have a decent and fun job. i have a nice cellphone. i take the mrt by myself. i buy for my mrt card, and (sometimes) lunch. if there would be a small space for that "boyfriend", it'll be placed on the last number of my priority list.

so whenever someone asks me again, i'll have this scripted answer:

"wala po. di ko po kelangan non."

everyone a painter!

>> Saturday, March 03, 2007

we found this funny english translation at the back of an instructional kit of a toy:



"Begin to move the brain, study work body again good. Fill, making uniform the painting, everyone is all an artist."

Operation method:
Choose a pigment for needing, stuff with the even the appearance frame inside that place, the small place needs to fill the color can help with the toothpick whole painting can flip to allow the bright powder slightly after completing on the appearance. The multicolored rich in hues and radiant and extremely keen crystal painting can pack children who order the character space is filled with the imagination. Make to draw the process was filled with the study, the endless fun that creates.

Announcements:
1. Pigment if immodesties be stained with the clothes, pleasing use the cleaning of water.
2. The pigment is not poisonous but please not the entrance.
