There's something in your eyes Makes me wanna lose my self, Makes me wanna lose myself in your heart, There's something in your voice That makes my heart beat fast Hope this feeling lasts For the rest of my life
If you knew how lonely My life has been And how long I've been so alone And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along And change my life the way you've done
It feels like home to me It feels like home to me It feels like I'm all the way back where I come from It feels like home to me It feels like home to me It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
A window breaks down on lumdard street And a siren rings in the night But I'm all right cuz I have you here with me, And I can almost see through the dark there is light
Well if you knew how much this moment means to me And how long I've waited for your touch And if you knew how happy you are making me I never thought that I'd love anyone so much.
(I want to share this article written by my boyfriend about the political issues in our nation. I hope this would serve as an eye opener for us Filipinos to vote wisely.)
Government paid infomercials have fetched huge amount of criticisms from all sectors. It was said that each was being cashed out through funds which were supposedly intended for the Filipino people. The democratic process,particularly the election process in the Philippines is a festive one. One cannot say that just by mere popularity, achievements, possessing a cute smile, or by how many name a candidate can recall during election campaigns so that he or she will be vindicated and be elected to certain government position. But all these years, a candidate who spends much(in monetary form) will definitely assume the position. It is a historical truth. To run and win as a Mayor for example, one must spend in Millions of Pesos and for a Presidential post, it will require billions.
However, other entities have been taking advantage out of this outrageous spectacle and some of which are in the TriMedia. In the race for the 2010 Elections for example, you will notice some numerous infomercials on TV, Radio and Newspapers of possible candidates. This said infomercials are worth not by thousands of Pesos but my Millions and others surprisingly admitted that such spending were paid by our taxes. Sadly, there were no reactions coming from government agencies associated in regulating and/or prohibiting individuals and/or entities regarding this pre-election campaign commercials. Furthermore, I was surprised that such infomercials are still being aired today by Media outlets Ironically, some media giants like GMA Network and ABS-CBN have manifested their desire to ensure a peaceful, fraud-less and orderly Elections come May 2010 through their respective advocacies such as ABS-CBN's Boto mo Ipatrol Mo; AKO ANG SIMULA and GMA's TATAKBO KA BA?
I am so upset that this Media giants are merely confusing the people on how to make a stand to make a better future for the Filipino people. I am not saying that I am against those advocacies that this Media giants are propagating. In fact, it is a remarkable move to create advocacies that will generate knowledge to make the voting public into responsible people. What is only ironic here is that while this media giants are actively encouraging people to become responsible, but they themselves did not act responsibly as they continuously earning millions of pesos from infomercials. Even if there are no laws that prohibit infomercials, they should police themselves and volunteered not to air such Political Ads. I am just an ordinary Citizen who is still dreaming of a nation that is Pro-God,Pro-People,and Pro-Environment. It is only my motive to this humble view not to make myself popular, but to practice within me the notion, AKO ANG SIMULA.

it is so sad to see people in the position living in cowardice, people who can't stand by what he or she believes and just do nothing. it is just so disappointing knowing that those people are merely puppets controlled by higher authority...indeed dumb for they can't fight for what is right and just allow things to happen even if those things are clearly unjust. They claimed to have done everything but leaders are supposed to protect their subordinates since the motivation of the subordinates depends on how the leader makes sound decisions...decisions that would promote their well being.I wish every leader has a deep relationship and sincere concern with his or her subordinates.
It was a cold rainy day. I spent the whole day at home sleeping until the honk of a car woke me up. It was Micqui. I stood up and prepared myself. We had dinner at calle cinco while waiting for another friend of mine, Vanessa. We were supposed to meet at the coffee shop however my stomach was craving for food so we dropped by at C5 to ease my aching stomach. After having a good dinner we went to Cups and Lowercase.
For the information of everybody, coffee shop is a place me and my friends usually hang out. We update our lives and talk about anything over coffee. Cups and Lowercase is a bit different from the usual coffee shop since it has a live acoustic band in it. I like the place so much. The interior design is unique as well. In fact, of all the coffee shops I have been, this one stands out from the rest.
While we were there taking advantage of the cozy ambiance, my friends kept on teasing me because I was glued on my mobile phone. They did not know that a friend of mine was pouring his heartaches out over yahoo messenger. I was thinking then that it is so rare for a guy to be stuck in a past relationship…I mean it has been almost a year and yet he has not gotten over it…pretty weird. He probably thought I can rescue him from that situation. Thus I gave him my opinion regarding his problem. I told him to move on and go on with his life….the usual words of comfort. It was a busy night for me. I was doing two things at the same time…lol…conversing with my friends while cheering a friend thru text. We did not notice that it was getting late until the band stopped playing. We posed and took pictures for a while and went home.
2008 has been the worst year in my entire life. It is pretty ironic since number 8 is known to be a good luck number. But for me it was not. It was a shattering one. In all aspects I was challenged as a person. It was indeed the hardest part…I can not put into words the exact emotion I was feeling then. One thing was absolute…I was facing such a big trial and living with it each day was terribly difficult. Everything was a mess. I was at my weakest. People were unaware of what I was going through since there was no trace of sadness on me in spite of the things that bother me. They did not know that I was trying to be strong for myself and for other people. Some of them even made me a shock absorber without knowing that I was carrying such a heavy load myself. I was trying to smile by hiding all my tears. I was living in pretense. I was trying to be numb. I told myself that this was a just a test of my faith. Going through the process of acceptance requires so much strength and I did not have that kind of power yet because I felt so helpless. The only weapon I had was prayer. And my constant encounter with God helped me in many ways. I accepted reality and tried to live with it slowly. Life is still beautiful and will always be beautiful no matter what.
It was my first time to go to Canibad Island and the whole trip was absolutely exciting. My friends and I left at more or less 5pm and we arrived at 7pm. It was a long journey but nevertheless it was fun.The natural beauty of the place moved me...very fine white sand...the beautiful scenery...lush green coconut trees...pristine waters...everything was amazing. It was a good place to relax because not so many people hang around. It was serene and placid, just right for people who want to get away from stress. Unfortunately we didn't have ample time to scrutinize the place because we were rushing to go back for some important reasons.
I've heard from a friend that Champ together with his band is coming over here to do a concert. I am an avid fan of this sensational band. I admire their musicality because of its depth. I actually saw them perform years back at the Venue and they did really well. It was a two thumbs up concert. I was so fortunate to get to know the good looking vocalist at that time. I felt so star strucked conversing with Hale's alluring frontman. No wonder people are drooling over him.I want to see them live again and fall in love with their songs. Welcome back HALE!!!MWAH
this poem was written by me for a friend way back in college...
Though I've known you for such a short while You've proven to me that you're one of a kind, An extraordinary pal who's ready to..
...listen in everyhting I say ...make me smile when I'm awfully exhausted ...regale me when I'm not in the mood ...offer pieces of advice when I'm doubtful of what my action should be ...understand me when thing go wrong.
The profundity of your thought and insights Have enriched my life indeed, making a big difference Into my monotonous existence. Unaware you are perhaps but I've gained a lot from you That's why I appreciate your candidness and your ability To speak your mind out.
There coudn't be too many men as thoughtful, attentive And wonderfully tender as you are. Mere words are not enough to express my deepest gratitude To you who has been extra nice and understanding.
You're not only a friend whom I can rely to You're a hero as well, ready all the time To do anything for others without expecting a reward. So with all my heart I thank you for sharing yourself to me And spending your time with me.
