About Me

My photo
I am a simple lady with an extra-ordinary personality. Often misunderstood, but all I can say is I am who I am. I want to be loved because of who I am.

Bigla ko lang siyang nakita kaya niReblog ko :))

I saw you for the first time
It came simply natural
Nothing special came to my feeling
You will be just an acquaintance,
A friend just like your colleagues will be.

After that first time,
We came across that busy, yet mysterious corridor
You offered me your smile, your kindness
Then there's a sudden shine on your face
I can see the light and the spark
You gave me a glow on that dull day.

At another encounter,
You talked to me,
Shared the anxiety that you feel
I'm impressed for the courage that you show
You didn't even know my name
But you didn't show any hesitation when you came to me,
And sit beside me.
Your shame and anxiety made you more attractive.

Oh, how I long to see you everyday.
On normal time, I wish a glimpse of you
On work, I'm high with your presence
I enjoy small glimpses from you,
Though it is nothing for you.

Your simple actions, our small talks
They are everything to me.
Every moment are memories.
How I wish you would love me,
And I'll love you in return.

Makasarili ka! Wala ka pang nagagawang tama sa buhay mo. Lahat ng bagay na ginagaawa mo para sa sarili mo lang. Laging sarili mo lang ang iniisip mo. Wala kang pakialam sa iba. Wala ka pang pakialam sa iisipin ng iba,wala kang pakialam sa nararamdaman nila, wala kang pakialam sa gusto nilang mangyari, wala kang pakialam sa gusto nilang mangyari. Para sa’yo, ang mahalaga lang ay ang sarili mo. Basta magawa mo lang ang gusto mo, kampante ka na.


To Ayedah,

O tapos? Ano ba yan, emo letter to self, napakaselfish pa rin. Get a life, bitch.

Masaya rin minsan maging selfish, selfish sa sakit. Sinasarili ang sakit, at least walang ibang masasaktan. I have a life but it is full of misery.

Life is an exciting journey.
Journey to the place of the unknown.
You will never know
where you are headed to.
What's important is to live your life to its fullest extent,
enjoy every bit of it.
Do not restrain yourself from the the things that frustrate you,
and to those that hinders your pruning.
Let your feelings and emotions be like a river
that freely flows on the streams.
Live by the wind-- FEEL IT and LOVE IT.

Never give all the heart
Never give all the heart for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seem
Certain and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that's love is
But brief, dreamy, kind delight
O never give the heart outright,
For they, for all smooth lips can say,
Have given their hearts up to the play.
And who could play it all enough
If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
He that made this knows all the cost,
For he gave all his heart and lost

Sa mga oras na feeling ko nanghihina na ko ng bonggang-bongga dahil sa fever at pagkatapos pa ng 30 minute press conference with Dr. Alvin Ang, Director ng Research Cluster on Culture Education and Social Issues and Board Member of the Philippine Economic Society, kailangan na naming tapusin ang 12-paragraph news article namin bout that press con and deadline is 9pm sharp at that same day. Geeesh.. :l

----sa mga oras na yan, isang mas busyng tao at mas "maysakit" na tao ang nagsabi sakin na:


Kaya hayun, nahiya naman ako sa sarili ko kaya sa abot ng makakaya ko ay tinapos ko ang news article ko, na di ko alam kung saan nanggaling. HAHAHAHA.

Di ko alam kung matutuwa ako o maiinis ako sa gawa ko, haha. Eto na yung article oh:

President Noynoy Aquino’s first State of the Nation Address focuses on criticisms about the past administration.

PNOY presented explosions about the past administration that he has preceded, but did not presented clear actions on how he can make the nation prosper.

He just criticized the Calamity Fund in Pampanga, the MWSS system, and the MRT issues.

There were no specific recommendations on the issues he released.

Noynoy Aquino’s way of delivering his speech on SONA is of so much difference on how CGMA delivered it.

There was no clear vision presented on his speech.

“Noynoy has no vision for the Philippines (in pertains to SONA),” said Dr. Alvin Ang, Director of the Research Cluster on Culture Education and Social Issues and Board Member of the Philippine Economic Society on a press conference done at room 208 of the St. Raymund’s Building.

Dr. Ang told the class that there is nothing new on the things that PNOY told the public during his SONA.

He explained that MRT has long have been a problem but no one is discussing it.
He has also told the people that the real issue behind the excess rice of the NFA is they got panicked during the year 2007, and stocked rice.

Albay Representative Atty. Lagman said that PNOY has presented wrong figures.

But Dr. Ang answered that the speech is not a matter of wrong figures, but a vague vision on the Republic of the Philippines.
