A Changed Man


"You don't know what you have until its gone".  


I've always believed in that cliche and I feel like there really is some truth to that uhm, saying.  And yet, for some strange and selfish reasons, I take my chances, complicate and push things to the limit, and then realize it is too late.  Yes, I believed in that cliche, but I never said I actually lived by that principle.  Not until now. 


You see, there's something about being made aware of the fact that soon, it is indeed all gonna be over, before it actually stops.  All of a sudden, you change your perspective of how things are and should be.  You want everything to be perfect - or at least right.  You become thankful of every opportunity, time and effort. There is that urge to make sure he knows it - every single freakin' time.  You become more appreciative.  You let go of yourself completely and let all of your inhibitions float. You seize every moment.  You savor it - with much pride and joy - knowing that this moment may never happen again.  Which make every touch,  every kiss, every waking moment together feel magical.  Just like in the movies.




It has only been barely three months.  And yet I feel like I've experienced an immense growth in the past 87 days far more than I've had in the past uhm, three decades.  Clearly, I am a changed man.  Experience tells me that you really don't know what you have until its gone. It is true in every sense of the word.  From now on, I will live my life with that cliche in mind.  I will make sure to let it guide me through every important decisions that I will have to eventually make.  And that this time around, I will never ever let any moment pass me by and go unnoticed.


Salamat.


Ganun pala yon,

What Love means to a 4-8 year old . . .....

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of
4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined See what you think:




'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.
So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.'

Rebecca- age 8



'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'

Billy - age 4



'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.'

Karl - age 5



'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.'

Chrissy - age 6



'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'

Terri - age 4



'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.' 

Danny
 - age 7



'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.
My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss'

Emily - age 8



'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'

Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)



'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,'

Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)



'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.'

Noelle - age 7



'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'

Tommy - age 6



'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.

He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'

Cindy - age 8



'My mommy loves me more than anybody
You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'

Clare - age 6



'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'

Elaine-age 5



'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'

Chris - age 7



'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.'

Mary Ann - age 4



'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.'

Lauren - age 4



'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)

Karen - age 7



'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'

Mark - age 6



'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.'

Jessica - age 8


 


And the final one 

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

'Nothing, I just helped him cry'



Mabuhay ang mga umiibig,

Goodnight Amy

They tried to make you go to rehab, but you said 'no.. no.. no..'
Your death is so tragic.  Although, it did not come as a surprise to me - still it is sad.  But I'm glad to see that your troubles are finally over! 
 
Goodnight Amy Winehouse. RIP.
 
What a waste of talent,

On Anonimity



Sometimes, I secretly wish that none of my friends found about this space.


That no one I know, will get to read the stuff that I wrote and will write here.


That I can still pour my heart out here without fear of being judged or questioned.  Or without causing or getting into any kind of trouble.


That I'll remain anonymous.


Free.




But no, I don't have that luxury now.


So I'll settle for the next best thing.....


Draft.

B 4



Perhaps the best B song off her new album 4, and yes, I did rape the repeat button.



I like how controlled and semi-restrained her vocals are in this song.


No matter who you love, it's so simple, you feel it and it's everything.

Current Obsession

Moving on is a very personal decision.


Some people move on rather swiftly than others.... Yung iba, mejo may katagalan....


As for me, mejo naka-move on na ako sa Pringles Multi Grain..... swear.

                      meron na siya sa mga suking tindahan gaya ng Landmark


Pero eto talaga, hindi ko pa masyadong mabitawan.. Mahirap i-let go..  Kaya for now, postponed muna ang "Oplan Back to Borta".... 

Siraan muna ng diet... =)


                                             Green Tea Kitkat



Nom nom nom,



p.s. Salamat sa aking sponsor!!! These made me so freakin happy.. =)
