Dominating the Silence of the Day

Obviously, this is not my first blog and I warn you, this is definitely NOT the last! But let me make this a different one, I will try HARD.

First, I'd have to welcome myself and the readers with colorful confetti and loud trumpet noises. Sometimes, I start sharing my kooky thoughts or get too irritating to provoke net surfers and blog readers to post their comments. THANK GOD, blabbermouths that give their nasty remarks on chosen topics are not present in my network. Nah! I wouldn't want to be their spitting image. No no. Though I am not using a PERIOD on that. Just a semi-colon, or collon, or comma, or hyphen. Everything but period.

Like everyone else I'm damn sure there would be times that I will make a burnbook out of this site. I don't intend to. Only when provoked. Do you know how it feels like when you're dead irritated with someone? Yes. That one. Such feeling could cause me to storm all my anger out. I am not a violent person, pls don't get me wrong. No, not the type who would throw anything within range that can be thrown. No, not the same scenario where you see flying plates and knives. Oh pls don't get me wrong. But, admit it, we all have lil devil inside of us. *smug* Which I am not exempted from.

Personally, (and not because I am also doing it) I think there's nothing wrong in expressing one's thoughts. Really, now. I gave it a real deep thought. I used to be so benign. Like overstated. Almost that my nic was synonymous to gudgeon. I must say it's not healthy to allow things go too far. Make it stop where things are still manageable. *My first sensible advice.

Seriously, don't let yourself be pushed to the edge and let people create a monster out of you. You will never like what you might become. Believe me. It's even harder to cut the horns when they're already sticking out. Strong and shiny.

Blogs are not necessarily for excellent writers -- who can impress readers and non-readers alike with such eloquence similar to Shakespeare. Like the saying, "practice makes perfect" everyone can become a good blogger. Awwww... I'm such an encourager.

Just why am I saying these things? Nothing. All I have said are pointless. It's just that I don't have anything meaningful to write about. My mind is working like a turtle crossing the street. While horns are dominating the silence of a fine day yelling "move it! move it!".

My fingers are damn itching to work on this site. So excited like trying out a new dress, a new pair of shoes or tasting a slice of pizza for the first time, drooling. I just can't help setting my fingers on the keyboard. Sorry.

That's all.

"Pilipinas Kong Mahal"

As I was browsing through the internet, I bumped into something that I want to share.

Sa ibang bansa: Pag nagkasala ang Pinoy, pinarusahan siya ayon sa batas.
Sa PINAS: Pag nagkasala ang ang Pinoy, ayaw niyang maparusahan kasi sabi niya mali raw ang batas.

Sa ibang bansa: Pinag-aaraalaan muna ng Pinoy ang mga batas bago siya pumunta roon, kasi takot siyang magkamali.
Sa PINAS: Pag nagkamali ang Pinoy, sorry kasi hindi raw niya alam na labag sa batas iyon.

Sa ibang bansa: Kahit gaano kataas ang bilihin at tax sa USA okey lang, katuwiran natin doble kayod na lang.
Sa PINAS: mahilig ka sa last day para magbayad ng tax minsan dinadaya mo pa o kaya hindi ka  nagbabayad. Rally ka kaagad kapag tumaas ang pasahe at bilihin imbes na magsipag, mas gusto natin ang nagkukwentuhan lang sa munisipyo o kahit sa alinmang tanggapan.

Sa Singapore: Kapag nahuli kang nagkalat or nagtapon ng basura sa hindi tamang lugar, magbabayad ka ng 500 Singapore dollars.

Sabi ng Pinoy, okey lang kasi lumabag ako sa batas.
Sa PINAS: Kapag nagkamali ang Pinoy katulad nang ganito, sabi ng Pinoy, ang lupit naman ng gobyerno, mali naman ang pinaiiral niyang batas eh, akala mo kung sino siya. Ayun nag-rally na ang Pinoy, gustong patalsikin ang Presidente kahit na alam niyang mali siya.

Bakit ang PINOY, pwedeng maging Law-abiding citizen sa ibang bansa ng walang angal, pero sa sarili nating bayang PILIPINAS na sinasabi ninyong mahal natin, eh hindi natin magawa.

Today, the Philippines is famous as the 'housemaid' capital of the world. It ranks very high as the 'cheapest labor' capital of the world too. We have maids in Hong Kong, laborers in Saudi Arabia, dancers in Japan, migrants and TNTs in Australia and the US, and all sorts of other tricky jobs in other parts of the globe.

Quo Vadis, Pinoy? Is that a wonder or a worry? Are you proud to be a Filipino or does it even matter anymore? When you see the Filipino flag and hear the Pambansang Awit, do you feel a sense of pride or a sense of defeat & uncertainty? If only things could change for the better.

Ultimo text messages sa cellphone ay balak pa rin lagyan ng tax ng mga ungas na pulitiko, eh sila itong dapat taasan ng tax. Mga pulitikong graduate sa 4 na sikat na kolehiyo/unibersida dito (alam nyo na kung ano yung mga yun) na namumuno ng bansa, mga aktibista kuno ngunit may bahid ng pagnanasa na nakawin ang kaban ng bayan! Mga ungas at magnanakaw talaga, na nagsipag-aral pa sa mga sikat na kolehiyo upang gawing perpekto ang pangungurakot!


Writer's Note

I have nothing against the writer of the said article. In his best way, he did show his love for the country. I LOVE THE PHILIPPINES and there are hundred reasons to not actually "love or like" this country, but I still believe that there are thousand reasons to love this country.

Majority of the people would agree if I say "I AM SICK and TIRED of hearing our leaders arguing and fighting over and over and over and over again NOT for the FILIPINO people, but for PERSONAL AGENDA. Now, don't get me wrong. Blame it on the media people for they continue to manipulate our minds, manipulate the minds of the Fragile and Poor minds of the Filipino. 

90% of the leaders of this country are ABUSIVE and USERS. Because they are taking advantage of poverty! And what could possibly revive poverty? Yes, it could be MONEY! Sino ba ang hindi nakakaalam na ang mga rallyista na nakikita natin na sumisigaw sa mga kalye ay walang natatanggap pagkatapos nilang tumayo sa init ng araw, sa ma-polusyon na kalye at higit sa lahat ipagpalit ang dignidad para lang makakuha ng pagkain na ihahain sa mesa para sa kanilang pamily?

Wait, nag rollback ba?

I am NOT ACCUSING nor BRAINWASHING YOUR MINDS, I am speaking what I see as a Filipino who TRULY CARES FOR THIS COUNTRY. Yes it's really not easy to be a Filipino. And these are the people who deserve - A SALUTE!

Construction Workers
Industrial Workers
Truck Driver
Oil and Gas Refillers
Newspaper Boys
Traffic enforcers (2% of them ONLY. Haha. Since I had a VERY VERY bad experience with them)
Mga kargador sa palengke
Security Guards
PUJs and PUBs Drivers
Factory Workers
NGO Owners
and other Skilled Workers

Ikaw ba na nakapag-graduate ng apat na taon sa kolehiyo, kaya mo bang gawin ang mga ginagawa nila para lang mabuhay? Oo siguro, pero hindi pang habang buhay!


I often wonder if I am anything people perceived of me. Just last week…I had a dose of awakening of some sort. I know I am capable of something, not something great, but at least something I know I can do. And I am pretty aware that one should not live by other’s expectations. But, I am half-believer of it. I have live my life, not by others’ expectations, but “taking into consideration” what others expect of me. Because sometimes…we are deceived by our own perception, and it helps when you consider their opinion of you.

Please don’t try to be judgmental about this. Again, I am and will not live by their or your expectations when I know it will not do me good. Bottom line is: your opinion matters but the same will not control me. :)

I just don't get it. Do you?

Things I don’t understand:

+Exaggerated sense of self-importance.
Some people think like they are the crème de la crème. Duh! Statement like, “I am so damn beautiful”, "Why on earth did he/she didn't even bother to open my page" could really be so narcissistic. Dunno. Well, unless the statement is meant as a joke, of course. Those overweening freaks! Those egotistical whatever you call them. So annoying! I believe that whatever there is to appreciate about you or even me, it’s really up to people to do the praising and not ourselves. I guess.

+Example from ants.
Haven’t you noticed how ants sweat and slave to prepare for the rainy days? They get ready for it so they hoard more than they could do. And the more awe-inspiring detail about them is that they stay in single file. They don’t go past another, which, not only proves their discipline, but their fortitude as well. Consider the loads their carrying. Thrice their size or more, imagine?! Why can't humans do the same?WWWHHHYYYYYYY!????

I am at times guilty of buying and desiring more when I don’t really need so much. Like, you finally bought your long time drool thing. Then after some time, it gets out-of-date and you’d want another one. It has become a non-stop wanting.

+Love fading. Like colors?
Can love truly disappear? Like, I know one shouldn’t be asking this anymore. But, can one really ascertain, like clear-cut, that someone had lost their love for someone? Or could one be accurate in assuming that the love was really gone? Define love.

Guess this is an extension of number one. But, I don’t understand why are “they” so toffee-nosed. As if there’s several more grounds for them to be. Like goodness, we have equivalent numbers, have two eyes, one nose and one mouth…etc. C’mon we are all simply equal. Social status, intellectual level, but NOT MATURITY LEVEL. Period!

+Gossips are just that pandemic.
Tell me I am wrong that most of our past time is gossiping. May it be our neighbor suspected of cheating on his/her partner, local or foreign blind items…etc. One find pleasure in talking about another person’s life. Just what is so fascinating about gossip? *scratches head* tsk tsk.

+Political ambition.
I find politics such a complicated world. So, why?!! Nuff said.

+Love: considered one of people's predicaments.
Next to financial, I must say. Like, I heard of people killing themselves because of a messed up relationship. I know of people that ends up boozy with alcohol for the same reason or because of lose-lose situation, again related to love. Why?

+Indigent people has the most number of children.
Don’t they really learn? I mean at least from experience…through experience. I mean, raising one child alone is already handful. The fact that they don’t have a job and they have what? Already 13 children to feed! And here’s another one coming!? Huuwwaaahaaaaaattttt?!!! Don’t they feel badly for their children looking grimy and famished, already? ;(

+Self-destructive urge.
While most of us fear death, some embrace death. I don’t get it.

Weight 101

I'm going to start it off by saying "GOODNESS! I've gained pounds around my waist and thighs." Urghhh! I am not proud! And the worst part? It might take time again before I lose 'em! *sobs*
I'd always say, "After this, I won't eat anymore". Easier uttered as always! PLUS the fact that, I love to cook and I'm the type of person who enjoys what she cooks. I can't help it! :( Guilt just comes after.. habitually!

I have a lot of food photos on my phone and my iPad, but I ain't posting them. No evidence. Just these extra fats around my waist, though! *sobs* BUT, BUT my pants are not getting harder to put on pa naman. Which tells me, I don't "desperately" need to move around and do crunches, YET. ATLEAST, that made me feel good! At least, I have to start controlling what I eat and avoid sweets.

On my way to the office this morning, I thought of this sort of "experiment" I'll be dealing with every morning or atleast every other morning starting tomorrow. (HOPE SO).

A sure way to shake off excess pounds and stay lean: have only veggie juice and slices of fruits for breakfast. I may add a small serving of oats if I wish. (the world's lamest breakfast meal). Use the stairs. BOO!

Get back to me for feedbacks -- positive or negative. If feedback is unfavorable I will stress that the idea didn't come from me. Just read it from a health glossy. If it's rather affirming, I accept thank-you notes. *wink*

I just need a freakin' solution to my problem. I don't want to get FAT, seriously!! :( I'm sure most of the time, I'd have to deal with more pains than comfort when I really intend to shed off weight!

Current Mood: SLEEPY and TIRED.

Yes, the Pinoy Big Brother reality TV will soon be back on Philippine TV courtesy (of course) by the country's leading network ABS-CBN. I can't wait to spill the good news to my friends here. Besides only my followers would know.

Alright, I first heard about this early of 2010. So after surviving the stampede-like-queue and answering the infamous question of that day - "Bakit gusto mo maging housemate ni Kuya?". No results were announced that day. Until I got a call from someone named -Laurenti Dyogi and asked me to send a letter with my pictures and a video footage of me doing random things. In this case I asked my budding filmmaker friend - Anthony Dela Merced to shoot a short introduction video. We came up with something that was shot in our kitchen.

It was a short 5-minute clip that shows me preparing Bistecca Fiorentina and Basic Risotto (Yeah I know, it almost turned out like a cooking show). I uttered lines like "What's up Kuya? Wanna go gaga over this meal?"

Lo and behold I wasn't expecting anything to come out of it, when all of a sudden I received a call from this network telling me that I am one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Season 4.

The format is the same as the previous seasons. I will be one of the housemates, no tv, no iPod, no cellphone, no newspaper for the entire duration of the show. (Gosh, wish me luck) And I will be voted by the people.

From what the PA told me, the rest of the housemates will compose of former Candy Magazine cover girl from Cebu, a comedian from Ilocos Sur, a Jordanian-Filipina girl from Deal of No Deal's 26K, a growing painter from Zamboanga, a fresh graduate of Business Ad from Ateneo de Manila, a pre-school teacher from Sampaloc and a former child actress (not Lady Lee and Aiza) and etc. My description? The chef in the making from Quezon City.

I am the midst of happiness, excitement, sadness and (future) longingness to my family, my boy and girl friends, my best friends, my laptop or should I say - THE OUTSIDE WORLD.

Oh, Sh*t, the producer just emailed me... It's confirmed I am IN :)

Launching would commence on April 20 and wrap up on June 15. So, I won't be around on my Lil' Sister's Bday (May 20), Philippine Independence Day (well, that's of course if I make it till the end).

And, what's the date today? It's APRIL 1

I hope you get the thang here :)
