where everyone's thoughts matter.

I was supposed to be at work today but I chose not to go. These past few days, it has been raining heavily here in my part of the world.

Well, living in a tropical country my whole life, I am used to the rain. We only have two seasons, summer and rainy, that is. I am not a summer person, I don’t like the idea of the prickly heat sensation in skin. I love the cold weather though we seldom have that here. When it rains its cold and I used to love it and I think I still do. But its different now, I have a job and I have to brave the weather in order to get to the office. I worked six consecutive days last week, It was tiring and the rain didn’t make it any easier. I don’t have a car so I commute back and forth and there are numerous occasions on that 6-day work sched that I had to ride a cab because of the rain and that wasn’t practical considering of how much I earn, Imagine that one-way taxi ride is already 1/3 of my daily rate. Not to mention 4 pairs of shoes were also ruined by the rain but that didn’t stop me from completing my sched last week without any absences or tardiness. I was actually proud of myself. I told myself that this August, I will have a perfect attendance at work but tht didn’t happen.

Today, I was supposed to come in for work at 3am. (We follow another country’s time zone at work.) I was planning to go to work at 10 pm last night because it’s not safe to commute at the wee hours of the night but my plan didn’t work out because of the non-stop heavy rains I turned on the T.V. and apparently the country has been experiencing heavy rains for 9 consecutive days. On that nine days of rain, there are certain periods of time that the rain would stop but since yesterday night, this particular rain still hasn’t stopped. One weird thing about it is that there are no storms noted, this is just caused by a monsoon or something.

While I’m writing this, I am hearing the heavy drops of rain and thunders outside. A lot of streets and roads are flooded. It’s like Ketsana all-over again. I hope this rain will be over soon, I am missing the sun. I hate seeing visions of flooded communities and people losing their houses in the news.

It’s good that I don’t live in a flood-prone area but it’s terrible to see the news and hear about people actually losing their houses because of this senseless rain. Now, I think Global Warming is making its presence known.


It’s been quite some time since i last posted something here. I don’t know why but these past few weeks I have had a hard time writing. Trust me, I tried several times to write in the past days, I had few unfinished works that I couldn’t really give a good closing words to.
Maybe it’s the stresses of life, work, and dreams. But I never want to ever lose my ability to string words together. It’s too important for me to give up, It’s one of the few things that made me feel good.
I remember the first time that I didn’t blog for 9 days. I posted my explanation as to why I wasn’t able to write during that period. But its different before, I was so busy and I tired but I knew then I still have the words in my head. But over the last few weeks of my silence, I was worried because I really don’t have the words.
Today I woke up, still not knowing what to write but I remembered the advice that another blogger, a very wise man and friend, told me before. He said “Come back to writing when you are ready.”
And I think I am ready now. So I am writing again. Forgive me if my new future works suck or what not. I am still at lost but I am trying to find the words and hopefully I can. ūüôā


Yes, This is the counterpart of my post a few weeks back, “5 facts about girls”. It took me a while to create a follow-up on that post because it is really hard to figure out boys especially if you are a girl. ūüôā Anyway so I decided to just decided to take my time and observe until I can actually come up with my own hypotheis or whatever you want to call it. Again, I am not claiming that everything written here is correct. These are just my humbled thoughts.

So without further a do. Here it is.

1. Boys love to date naughty girls for fun but they date good girls for love.

Well. I think this is self-explanatory.

2.  Boys never really like girls with heavy make-up on. They dig our no make-up look.

Yes.¬†Boys like girls who¬†look neat¬†and presentable but they don’t really like girls who look like they will be accepting an acting hoour every single moment of the day. It is okay to put on a little make-up every once in a while. But if you’re everyday look consists of putting¬†layers of foundation in your face, the concealer, then powder, then add eye shadow,¬†and eve liner, eye brow liner, mascara, blush on, lipstick,¬†and lip gloss then that’ something you’d have to think twice about. You don’t want¬†your bf or boy-friends to not be able to recognize you when they¬†surprise you in your house and see your no-make-up look.¬†Unless, you also have the¬†heavy make-up on at home.

3. Boys’s eyes may glance for a few seconds sexy girls but¬†there will always be this girl¬†that he just can’t¬†stop staring at.

¬†As the saying goes “Boys will be boys.” Yes, Physical attributes can really draw the attention of the guys but when eventually found someone who they love staring at then there will be¬†a few moments that they will glance but they will never stare because the already have their eyes set on someone else.

4. Boys love spending time with the girls they love but they also need their Boys night out.

Ofcourse, Every guy loves to spend time with their gf or special someone but there will always be a time that they will crave to hang out with his gang. Let him do so! Let them have their testosterone-fest! Don’t worry.

5. Guys like to make the first move but they don’t mind¬†if girls¬†make the first move.

Yes I think that though we are already in the year 2012, still, most guys are the ones who are doing the first move. However, I think guys in our time¬†no longer care if¬†they¬†made the first move or not. As long as you two have chemistry, then he woudn’t mind!

The end. ūüôā Hope to hear from ya!


Another long deep breath

for a closing argument.

Another awkward silence

in the heated moment.

Afraid to say something wrong.

She said nothing at all.

He’s been waiting for so long.

Her answers are stalled.

He wants to talk about it.

She¬†doesn’t want to argue.

He¬†tried to say what’s in his head.

She believed it was untrue.

Doubt fills up her heart.

He’s slowly drifting away.

He was looking for a reason

for him to even stay.

She just let it all passed by.

She think It’ll be over soon.

He caught another’s eye.

The attention made him swoon.

While she pretended everything will be alright.

though that’s not what her heart and mind tells.

He decided to spend the night,

Not with her but with somebody else.


Small talks and Stolen glances

Hands are tied

¬†But you’re taking chances

Just looking in yet standing outside

smells like another sin.

Stepped a toe out of line

Take your chances, thinking it is fine.

You removed your ring,

Rehearse your lines.

Let the games begin….

He’s¬†playing¬†his cards.

With coolness and suave

She’s taking part, hoping to love.

In the dark. In the night.

Two bodies collide.

She’s playing her heart.

He’s using his mind.

Now He got what he wanted.

He got rid of the heat.

He left her with nothing

but promises he couldn’t keep.


I seldom watch TV programs. I am so busy at work and if I am not working then I am sleeping. During my days off, I usually bum around the house and watch movies or series in the web. I hardly watch any local programs and news but just yesterday I was preparing to go to work and I had a few minutes to spare so I decided to watch the news…

As I turned on the TV, A news headline immediately popped in…

“52 kids died in Cambodia due to mysterious illness.”

That is just not the type of news that I would want to hear. It is so sad, 52 kids who still haven’t experienced everything the world has to offer, and now they never will. It is alarming how this mysterious virus attacked the immune system. From what I have read in article, symptoms include high fever and respiratory difficulties then it will proceed further from there and it may lead to system shutdown and neurologic problems.

I also read that somehow this disease is caused by a virus that can cause paralysis, brain swelling and may eventually lead to death. It is also said to be easily spreadable through coughing, sneezing and contact to infected bodily fluids.Cambodian government are still on the process of investigating this said disease.

Here in the Philippines, the government is taking precautions by putting up thermal scanners in airport and especially monitoring the passengers who went to Cambodia.

Let’s all hope and pray that there will be no further cases of deaths attributed to the said disease and will not spread worldwide. Let us also hope that Cambodia will be able to find a cure and a way to stop the illness from spreading so that no other children will go through such untimely demise.

To those who loss a child/children because of this disease, I am really very sorry for your loss.

P.S.

If you want to read the article that I read

It is a very dark day today.

The sun barely shed its glow.

The wind is blowing relentlessly.

Like¬†it is telling me something I¬†shouldn’t know.

It is a very cold night tonight.

Weather that is so conducive for sleep.

I have always loved nights like this.

But tonight this coldness is keeping me stiff.

It is a really big world out there.

Seven billion people that are trying to find their ways.

Seven billion souls are still figuring out who they are supposed to be.

Seven billion beings trying to survive every day.

It is such a mystery that in there are seven biliion people in this planet.

Yet one still feels isolated from the everyone else.

All shacked up in the corner, invisble to the world.

Imagine, Seven Billion people, yet she faces the world alone.
