Paghihintay

I really wish, hospital visits are quick!!! There's soooooo much waiting involved, sometimes, I really don't get it.  Minsan, naiisip ko nang maghimatay-himatayan, baka sakaling unahin nila ako!!

While waiting, I was my usual click-happy self reading stuff on my phone and listening to music.  And then it happened.   Just as I was re-reading some old messages from my phone, enter Adele.




Halfway through the song, I heard my name being called on the speaker, habang pinipigilan kong maluha.  I guess I was not that successful because the first thing the doctor asked me was "are you okay?".


Shit happens,

Laugh Trip



There are just some moments when something is sooooo funny, you can't keep yourself from laughing.


Life, sometimes, can be such a tease that way.  It brings us to a very awkward situation where letting out a good laugh, no matter how inapproprite or improper, is the only thing we can all do.


It can happen on your own wedding......





Or even live on national television...



         Anderson is soooooo cute!! I crush you!!


Honestly, I am also the type who can't control myself from laughing when I find something really really funny!!  Lalong lalo na sa mga bagay na hindi naman sinasadya.  So, no judgement from me brothas!! Tawa lang ng tawa. Go!


We could all use a lil smile laugh,



p.s.
si Father, ang ultimate example ng po-po-po-pokerface.

Coelho's Thoughts


Somebody's being a little sentimental about things lately.  

Times like this, I can't help but be reminded of that blog post Mr. Coelho did back in 2009.

-----------------------------------

Keeping Open to Love
By: Paulo Coelho

There are times when we long to be able to help someone whom we love very much, but we can do nothing. Circumstances will not allow us to approach them, or the person is closed off to any gesture of solidarity and support.  Then all we are left with is love. At such times, when we can do nothing else, we can still love - without expecting any reward or change or gratitude.

If we do this, the energy of love will begin to transform the universe about us. Wherever this energy appears, it always achieves its ends. 'Time does not transform man. Will power does not transform man. Love transforms,' says Henry Drummond.

I read in the newspaper about a little girl in Brasilia who was brutally beaten by her parents. As a result, she lost all physical movement, as well as the ability to speak.

Once admitted to hospital, she was cared for by a nurse who said to her every day: 'I love you.' Although the doctors assured her that the child could not hear and that all her efforts were in vain, the nurse continued to say: 'Don't forget, I love you.'

Three weeks later, the child recovered the power of movement. Four weeks later, she could again talk and smile. The nurse never gave any interviews, and the newspaper did not publish her name, but let me set this down here, so that we never forget: love cures.

Love transforms and love cures; but, sometimes, love builds deadly traps and can end up destroying a person who had resolved to give him or herself completely. What is this complex feeling which, deep down, is the only reason we continue to live, struggle and improve?

It would be irresponsible of me to attempt to define it, because I, along with every other human being, can only feel it. Thousands of books have been written on the subject, plays have been put on, films produced, poems composed, sculptures carved out of wood or marble; and yet all any artist can convey is the idea of a feeling, not the feeling itself.

But I have learned that this feeling is present in the small things, and manifests itself in the most insignificant of our actions. It is necessary, therefore, to keep love always in mind, regardless of whether or not we take action.

Picking up the phone and saying the affectionate words we have been postponing. Opening the door to someone who needs our help. Accepting a job. Leaving a job. Taking a decision that we were putting off for later. Asking forgiveness for a mistake we made and which keeps niggling at us. Demanding a right that is ours. Opening an account at the local florist's, which is a far more important shop than the jeweller's. Putting music on really loud when the person you love is far away, and turning the volume down when he or she is near. Knowing when to say 'yes' and 'no', because love works with all our energies. Discovering a sport that can be played by two. Not following any recipe, not even those contained in this paragraph, because love requires creativity.

And when none of this is possible, when all that remains is loneliness, then remember this story that a reader once sent to me.

A rose dreamed day and night about bees, but no bee ever landed on her petals. 

The flower, however, continued to dream. During the long nights, she imagined a heaven full of bees, which flew down to bestow fond kisses on her. By doing this, she was able to last until the next day, when she opened again to the light of the sun.

One night, the moon, who knew of the rose's loneliness, asked: 'Aren't you tired of waiting?'

'Possibly, but I have to keep trying.'

'Why?'

'Because if I don't remain open, I will simply fade away.'

At times, when loneliness seems to crush all beauty, the only way to resist is to remain open.

LDR Officiale


-12 sa NYC

-13 sa HOU


I'm starting to get the feel of it.  

I don't know if I'll ever get used to the fact of you not being around.  Because, I myself don't want that to happen.  It's going to be sweet to say that I can't live without you - but we both know that's not actually true (sasabihan mo lang ako ng 'char'), because obviously I can.  Its just that, uhm, I don't want to.  Ayoko talaga!!!  *tantrums*
 



"You be the one to take care....."


New York, California and Houston - please be nice to him.  
Otherwise, you'll have a problem!!!


Hanggang sa dulo ng daigdig,

Tic Toc

There are probably a gazillion thoughts running through your head right now.  Okay, OA ang gazillion, baka millions lang. 


Sa totoo lang, ang dami ko pang gustong sabihin.  Hindi ko lang alam kung paano ako sisingit sa millions.  Lolz.  Ayokong makigulo.  




Kaya ngayong gabi, hindi ako matutulog.  Kasi pag di ako natulog, baka sakaling hindi umandar ang oras.  Baka sakaling hindi ka pa aalis bukas.  Baka sakaling magkaron pa ng mas madaming time, ng chance.  Kasi right now, kahit nandito ka pa, pakiramdam ko, ang layo mo na...


I'm missing you already,

How Do I Blog Thee?

They say, when you love someone, you have to say it.  

Out loud.  

For the whole world to hear.  

And don't let the moment pass you by.

I guess, at this point, I don't really have to do that.

Because, one can tell.  Simply by looking....

without me having to utter a single word!!


The picture doesn't do justice.  It is HUGE and really red!!!!  Whoever said that being in love makes you grow a pimple on your nose should get a Nobel prize for predicting the unpredictable!! Lolz.

There's so many things I want to say, but just like a wimpy kid with a vitamin deficiency, I don't have the knack for it now.  I lack focus. I don't have my mental health.  For now, I will let Bono do the talking err singing while I deal with this crisis!!!  

Hit it boys....





I want to throw tantrums on national television too,
