    There’s something about 8tracks

    Unlike travelling to a place you’ve never been before, where you have to pack your bags and pay to ride by land or fly by plane for hours. Unlike eating food you’ve never tried before, where you can end up going for seconds or going to the sink to throw up. Unlike meeting a person you’ve never known before, where you have to transform into a showbiz talkshow host peering into their private lives just so you can get to know them more. However you want to experience something you haven’t experienced before, there’s something about listening to a playlist where you have no idea what comes next. Read more…


    The Godfather

    There’s this Filipino belief that your child can acquire his/her Godparents’ talents and skills, thus being one of the criteria of choosing ‘ninongs'(godfathers) and ‘ninangs'(godmothers) aside from their personal relation to the parents and probably financial capacity. Of course this will only hold true if those Godparents spend a lot of time with their Godchild and actually teach him/her about whatever God-given skills they can impart for if not, then there must be some other means a certain Godfather of mine transferred his drawing skills to me ‘coz we never really spent time together except when my Christmas presents from him are due.

    Change of Name. Change of Heart.

    Okay, so I’m thinking of changing this site’s name to ‘UNFINISHED BUSINESS’. No, I have no plans of dying yet (well this isn’t really ours to plan, unless you’re one of those stubborn, suicidal maniacs jumping off railways and the like) that I would leave behind some unfinished business—wait… then again, I guess I SHOULD rename it. Its just that I have this tendency to not actually finish things and you know how people say that when ghosts have an unfinished business they tend to linger longer (hey I can make a tongue twister out of that: Linda likes to linger longer lobbying at the Louvre) until they finally complete whatever business that is.

    Growing in 2013

    “I want something NEW next year!”- me during every December 31, XXXX at 11:59 PM. I already decided to tweak my hair short and coloured last year so unless I wanted it shorter this year I have to get bald. So I thought of something else. Viola! I thought of GROWING. Not my hair, nor my height (which unfortunately I can’t do anything about). Read more…
