one day...

i just lost a loved one yesterday.hasn't been a year when i lost my tatay. when i was watching the oscars, i held back my tears when queen latifah sang the billie holiday song "i'll be seeing you". here's to you, tatay! amishu...:(

one day, when the time has come
we'll see each other again
in a church, or maybe in a farm
amidst the crowd in the park
in faceless strangers
i may meet in the dark
i just know, that one day
under the starless night
or in a cold gloomy day
i'll see you along the way
you'll welcome me in open arms
and i'll feel that old loving warmth
one day, you'll find me again
it may not be now, who knows when
but i know, i just know
i may wait a little though
for that glorious morn or moonless night
when the time comes, i'll be alright....

my friend Saunière ( he loves double entendres) texted me earlier. wala lang nangungulit as usual, and was asking a favor if i could accompany him to manila. since i havent seen him for some time, i conceded (i first refused to join him in his adventure).
sauniere: oist san kita daanan?
maharot: (gave him the instruction).maliligo lang ako
s: wag na...daanan kita sa kanto
m: eeeeh mainet e.dito mo nako daanan sa house.

you and me against the world

i'm hooked with nip/tuck recently and while watching, we saw a patient, montana, who has MPD or multiple personality disorder. we (athena and i) were laughing while one character comforts the other one regarding her "big" boobies. they (the 2 personalities) agreed that everything will be alright after the doctors operated on it. we then thought of the possibilities of us suffering from MPD and thought of names that we could use for our alter egos. here's mine:

6images2.jpg
morgan: the phlegmatic/confident
1images.jpg
kurt/evie: the naughty twins
7images1.jpg
willow: the conservative/insecured

now, for fun let's make them talk to each other. i never had imaginary friends during childhood so why not start now hehehe

morgan: i'm bored...
kurt: why don't you piss your roomies off!
evie: yeah that would be fun. don't wash the dishes and leave your garbage everywhere.
willow: stop it. i dont wanna get into a fight.
morgan: that would be stressful. i hate stress. that's why i don't get into relationships, they're much too messy especially if you're not compatible.
evie: that's because you're a prude
willow: of course not im just reserved
evie: im not talking to you, boring bitch, shut up
willow: okay if you say so
morgan: well im in no condition to fall in love.
evie: why so? feeling inadequate?
willow: are you talking to me now?
evie: i wont waste my time on you
morgan: so it's me then you are talking to. i just don't want to waste my time on someone if he doesnt love me. i wont be a convenient part-time partner.
kurt: all guys want that kinda girl at one point
morgan: good news moron, it won't be me.
evie: c'mon, try it. so i can also share the quality time hihihi
morgan: i dont want men abusing me in any way. my kindness for instance..
evie: what kindness??? sorry to disillusion you but you're no lamb, dear. more of a tigress raaar
kurt: oooh bite me baby
morgan: scram! i have other things to do than entertain your theories.
evie: no! i wanna play first...lets have a game.
willow: can i join?
kurt: sure you're IT hahaha
morgan: scrabble? poker?
willow: millionaire's?
kurt: fusion frenzy!!! mortal combat!
evie: no, that's too generic. let's play spin the bottle hihihi
morgan: hmmm brilliant
kurt: why not truth or dare..
morgan: i get to choose!
willow: no personal questions please...
evie: as if! kurt first. who among your guy friends freak you out the most.
kurt: duh! they wont be my friends if they freak me out.
evie: ok you win. morgan, why are things always complicated with you?
morgan: why not? it gives me something to ponder on when im in a pensive mood. at the same time, i enjoy analysis. why do you care?
evie: is that the question? that's too easy..
kurt:you cant get away that fast, here's one: what makes a guy so hot you would consider you know...doing it sans love?
evie: he has to make me tremble just by looking at me, i dunno how he could do that though hahaha. he has to be straight forward without being rude or arrogant. of course, he has to be somewhat attractive (animalistic) and witty.
morgan: duh every wants that in a man.
evie: why do you care??? now let's ask the wallflower...why are you such a prude
willow: im just scared of regrets.what if things dont work out right? what if im not enough for him? what if...
kurt and evie: enough of the drama, we're sleepy! you bore us to death hahahaha

on the road to spinsterdom

reposted. this was written , again in my other blog in 2005. whoa that was eons ago..

images2.jpg

Im 29 years, 10 months and 12 days old today. In this age of unplanned pregnancy, failed marriages, philandering husbands and unfaithful wives, yours truly has been oblivious to my so-called love life, until today. It’s not as if I have one though. The news came as a shock. I woke up at 3 am in the morning and saw my phone lighting up. That means I have a text. 2 text messages rather. One from a Xgirl (a very good friend) asking if I had read “BROWNIE’s” text. The one who would carry me on his back on the way home, who’d write me mushy letters about our ideal friendship, the only guy who would love me (come what may) more than his numerous girlfriends. Brownie, who would have been a candidate for my search (in the near future) for the ideal sperm (to meet up with my superior egg), is now a dad. Since I read the text in a rather sleep-conducive hour, I just shrugged it off but managed to congratulate him nonetheless. And to my surprise, he thanked me. Omigas!!!! This isn’t one of my wacky dreams where I would be a beggar begging for jaguar cars one minute and the next celebrating my wedding in a McDo joint. Those weird dreams often haunt me, you know. But this one with brownie is real. I woke up 6 hours after, feeling awful. Then it dawned on me, we can no longer have “our” first-born!! His was already born 24 hours ago. Not that I still pine for him after all these years, its just that he became a security blanket, that someday, when the world gets tired of chinovelas and showbiz talk shows, we will realize that no one would accept us except each other (mush mush mush). Or maybe a gauge. That I’m waiting for him to get laid first (its not his first time though). Oh well you know what I mean. What’s insulting is we had dinner last week and he didn’t even had the guts to tell us. We’re supposed to be best friends. And yet he’s hiding something.

But wait there’s more, a friend from my previous work also got married recently. Pregnant as well and what, she’s only 24. Okay 24 is a suitable age but hey isn’t it a lil too early to settle down after a few months engagement? And lastly, the guy I dated for many months is exchanging vows this weekend, and I’m attending. I’m happy for him though since I don’t see a future for us (give us 15 minutes and we’d be chewing each other’s heads off). Which leaves me to ponder which path am I going to? I’m trapped between being choosy and being picky. Hmmmm… is there a difference? I don’t think so. That’s because I can't see myself settling for someone I just met or any guy who comes along. He has to be special. There has to be a “chemistry” between us. Otherwise I won’t be comfortable thinking I settled for someone less than what I am looking for. Sure there are thousands of guys there but not one is my match. Or maybe I have to dig deeper to see if there’s a spark. But what if I don’t have a guy cut out for me? Whaaaaat? U tell me while I continue this journey to spinsterdom.

para sa yo

disclaimer: the characters in this entry are all fictional. this entry is just made to release any pent-up emotions the author has....at the moment hehehe. this is also reposted from my other blog

sabi nila di ka pwedeng mabuhay ng masaya kung ni minsan ay di ka nagmahal o nakaramdam ng pagmamahal mula sa ibang tao.siguro totoo nga kasi ako laging masaya.maniwala kat hinde, maraming nagmamahal sa akin. nandyan ang nanay ko, na sa kabila ng pagnana-NAG araw araw (sa text) e nakukuha akong hanapin pag nawala ako ng isang linggo. ang kapatid ko na ang tingin sa akin e naglalakad na bangko dahil daig pa niya ang pulis kung humingi ng lagay pero kasundo ko sa ibat ibang kalookohan. ang girlfriends ko na kahit panay ang pintas sa mga dinedate kong mukha daw swelas ng sapatos, ay pinapautang pa din ako pag wala akong pan-date. ang mga friendships ko na kahit panay ang dakdak sa kabagalan ko sa usaping pag-ibig ay matiyaga pa ding nakikinig at nagpapayo. at higit sa lahat sa iyo, na sa kabila ng kahinaan ko sa maraming bagay, ay wala pa ring sawang maghintay kung kailan darating ang tamang panahon sa atin.

gaya ng math. bata pa ako, halos ingudngod na ni mama ang mukha ko sa math books, pero hanggang ngayon, duguan pa din ang ilong ko pag nagccompute ng numbers. tuwang tuwa ka naman dahil kung ikaw ang gumawa nun, pati tenga mo dudugo.

isa pang kahangahang kong trait ay ang galing ko sa pagnanavigate. bigyan mo ako ng directions papunta sa liblib na lugar at makakaasa ka na maliligaw ako gaano man kadali tuntunin ang lugar.kagaya nung pumunta tayo sa golden acres.buti na lang ang babaan ay dun mismo sa dulo ng trip. kung sa baguio papunta ang bus na sinakyan malamang nasa pampanga na tayo bago tayo magising.

pag nag-overnight tayo somewhere, di kita papatulugin sa sobrang kulit ko.nandyang makipagpustahan ako sa iyo hanggang maubos na ang pera mo at tubuan ka ng eyebags sa puyat. di pa dun natatapos yun.pag tulog na ako, magg-grind pa ako ng ngipin habang natutulog.di pa ko masisiyahan, pag mainit ang panahon, asahan mo na dadapo sa panga mo ang siko ko o kaya matatamaan ko ang "family jewels" mo ng isa kong tuhod.di ka man lang magagalit, bagkus panonoorin mo pa kong matulog, wondering kung san ako pinaglihi.

pag umuulan,alam na alam mong ayoko mababasa ang paa ko, kaya kasehodang buhatin mo ako mula espana hanggang morayta, papayag ka, wag mo lang marinig ang pag wa-whine ko sa daan.kahit di halos nagkakalayo ang timbang natin.

the irony of it all is that you can't muster enough courage to tell me how you feel about me.di ko tuloy alam kung ano reason mo for doing all those things that you do.i can fill up the entire blogspace to write all the good things you've done for me but it won't change the fact that you, of all people, dont have the guts to open your heart and let me in on your little secret. nonetheless, this one's for you :)

unfaithful.jpg

Why shouldn't you stay with someone who cheats on you? If it happens once, it will happen again. Why? If you stay with man or woman who has cheated on you, you've essentially taught them that they can sleep with somebody else and you'll take them back. Wow, that's pretty great news for them!
The first time someone cheats on you, he has the most to lose because he doesn't know what your reaction will be. But, once he's weathered the initial storm, he knows precisely how you'll react. By the time he's cheated on you twice, three times, thirty-eight times, he knows exactly what to expect. Lots of crying and screaming, followed by a few weeks or months of good behavior on his part. And then, he's on to his next aerobics instructor/co-worker/mall vendor. Repeat.
Even if you manage to get past the lies, the heartache, and the ten pounds you'll put on with comfort food, a cloud will always hang over your relationship. You'll never truly feel cherished, or completely loved. And you deserve better than that, don't you? Why torture yourself with feelings of self-doubt and insecurity? Tell that cheater to hit the road, lock yourself in your apartment with your closest friends, a stack of sappy movies (or action flicks) and a couple quarts of your favorite brand of frozen happiness. Move on, and find someone who gives you the love and respect you deserve. You have the power here. Let me say it again: People will only treat you as poorly (or as well) as you allow them to. So, draw a line in the sand. As of today, your high standards are renewed.
Now that you're weeding out the losers, what will you do on Saturday night? Here's the answer: You'll only date people who treat you with respect and kindness and dignity. You'll only date people who are enthusiastic to be around you. I chose to date only men who brought me sweets and opened my car door as well, but that's optional, depending on your affinity for good manners and chocolate. From now on, you'll only date people who treat you as though you are a Christmas gift to the universe. This may narrow the field a little in the beginning, but once you get the hang of it, you'll have only the best dates to choose from. And that's really what it's all about, isn't it?
There's no advice or magic wand to turn a cheater or abuser into a prince or princess. Consider them a lost cause and move on. Once you set your standards back where they belong, you'll be able to meet and maintain a relationship with the kind of person you truly want to be with.

miss match

this blog has been posted in my other blog dated 11-28-2008 (old news)

bride_in_r..g_shoes.jpg

Amidst couples hurrying to walk down the aisle, I sat here in front of my monitor pondering why they do. Don’t get me wrong, I have dreams of having my own family, raising kids (preferably with a husband), cooking their meals, preparing their things (yes, odd as it may seem, I see myself staying at home and being a full time domestic helper) etc. maybe everything boils down to me being raised by my single working mom (not that she was unmarried, but they parted ways when I was still in my diapers-good for her). and the thought of the “perfect” mom you see in commercials appeal to me so much. I never experienced going home from school and be offered a glass of milk which I have to drink “all the way down”. I have a happy childhood though. It was my tita edith who would attend to me after school, serve me lunch and mango shake or spend time with me eating semi-ripened papaya dipped in vinegar (which makes me realize now how weird that snack was). I loved it back then. Going back, I love my mom no less. Had she been a plain housewife, I wouldn’t know where we’re gonna get money for my education. She’s been (still is) a responsible and loving mother, not very sweet though. Maybe that’s why im also like this: A walking mirror. If your dress doesn’t suit you, you’ll know just by asking me. That’s why I can’t be a saleslady. I also wouldn’t give out sugar-coated comments like most nice friends do but I send the message across at a flick of the finger, it may hurt most of the time but you’ll see the real situation in a few seconds. Which brings me back to the topic why im not hitched yet. I have a theory that most Filipino men are afraid of women who have a very strong personality. Even if I try to be nice, my appearance would fail me. I look like your modern-day contrabida. A callous looking stare (which I don’t mean when I try to check people out), a height that can rival any average Filipino, which according to my friends, intimidate the prospective suitors. Not to mention my being straight forward. I just don’t like guys giving me insincere compliments (you’d know that. Women’s intuition probably-though I don’t look like a woman hehehe). If I feel that there’s no future, why waste their time and mine? Frank as I am, I never would be able to tell a guy I have the hots for him. Call it pride or whatever you wanna call it, I just won’t. Even if I think about him all the time (literally) and harbor fantasies of growing old with that person. Well, maybe that explains it. No solution for that for now, so in the meantime, I’ll just be content in being unattached for another 5 years or so. Pathetic!
