Birthday Collage

This is a collection of some of my favorite pictures taken during my birthday celebration. I know its a very late post but I just finished it last night. I was not actually planning to do this, I just got bored and wanted to pass time.

the part where I fart

Dili mahimutang
Ni kaon man gud ug daghan
Sa bangko nag igwad-igwad
Murag nay gina punggan

Gasakit ang tiyan
Ga lain ang kalawasan
Dagko ang singgot
Namugnaw ang mga kamot

Utot na baho dili ipahibalo
Ug manimaho mo deny deritso
“Dili ako! Basig siya to!”
Pataka lang ug pasangil, pataka ug panudlo

Ang kinabuhi mura ug utot
Unsa ang imong gikaon mao ra pud ang humot
Kun imong punggan mas kusog ang tinggog
Kun imong pasagdan, ikaw gihapoon makasimhot

Mao ang kinabuhi sama sa utot
Bisag baho kinahanglan di itago
Sa mahilom man o masaba
Dawat-dawat lang ta
Kay ang kapait sa kinabuhi
Sama sa utot
Natural ra gyud siya.

(warning: Nakautot ko ug baho jud siya)

changes

“Sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything.”

This year is a year of change. It never occurred to me that my life would revolutionize drastically. In deed sometimes change is good. It’s the world’s way of saying that things are not working out and a little change is all you need.

I often wake up with a very predictable daily agenda, most of the time my days would seem so monotonous and boring. If not for my long time friends (thanks to them) I would qualify as a jerk, a stupid asshole a nerd without a life.

“Adz, we need the report by Monday”

“Adz, MANCOM in on Tuesday, be ready with your report”

“Deadline of your weekly report is on Wednesday”

“Cut off for the payroll is on Thursday”

“Consolidate the monthly report for the whole quarter, we need it this Friday”

What could be more hectic and mind-numbing as this commands and responsibilities? But it is my job. It is part of my change. I had evolved from being a simple student to a responsible (?) employee. I love this though; it is one of my few accepted changes. Suddenly everything is falling into its rightful place. But just when I thought so, an unwelcome change comes along. I have to leave behinds the friends I know. The friends who I thought were there for keeps. Just when I’m at my peak and want to shout at the top of my lungs how lucky I’m to have a great life, the inevitable happened. The things I would want to have forever had to leave.

Leaving is in fact a part of the many changes. You don’t want it, nobody wants it but it comes as a package of changing. A shift from the usual routine is always constant. It comes like a thief, unwanted, inexorable and fast. You cannot prepare for it; it never shows any warning it just happens.

But change is not solely applicable to me. It happens to everyone. So if I have changed I have to also consider the change around me. The transformation in this world is not in me alone. It happens to you and me and to the whole humanity.

So I still say “Change is everything”.

Off ot something new!

No! You are wrong, totally wrong. I am not resigning, not after I received a generous raise. (Thank you!) This is my longest stay in a job so far. 7 months and I’m still happy with it. I plan to resign this coming October though.

This year I’m off to something new. I still don’t have definite plans but I know this year will be different. I did celebrate my birthday in a very unusual way and I am planning to take it from there. Not is sure of what’s to come. The only thing I know about is that we will be going to Dumaguete this year for a well deserved vacation. I am excited about it. Everybody is. Aside from that I will live my life candidly. No plans, come what may. Besides when I plan things they always end up differently, so what’s the use?

Basta, I’m off to something new and let’s just leave it that way.

I’m starting a new series of entries entitled lonely boy. The story varies in theme and manner of being written. The only similarity is the loneliness that the main character feels. I haven’t really thought of it not until I was left alone in the accounting office and felt so damn alone. Well hope you enjoy this series and the lesson that comes with it.

Lonely boy: Series 2

I haven’t felt this sad and alone ever in my life. I woke up with no one beside me, had to fix my breakfast and eat it all by myself. The saddest reality is sinking right into my bones. When the day ends, I have nobody but me.


I have three phones with different lines but time indeed plays a fool to those who wait. Like a useless device, my phone is not cooperating. I even tried to send an SMS to my self trying out if SUN, SMART and GLOBE system is down foolishly wishing it really was so as to find an excuse why I haven’t receive an invitation to go out for the day. And for the first time in 2 days the most anticipated sound was heard but I know to well it was a message from my self. I am becoming a pathetic cell phone user. I can’t stand being alone anymore, I tried to contact everyone I know but to no avail. They all seem to have lousy excuses why they can’t come with me. At that point I just realized God was punishing me for not going to church in 3 straight weeks. I have to go now; at least I will have a valid reason why I should spend my night out. Maybe I can find someone to accompany me, someone I can spend the rest of my weekend with.

I got to the church a little late for the last mass, well, better late than never I said to myself. No familiar face around. Sad… As if everything in the world has conspired to ruin my day.


Anyone out there if you are reading this, If you are going to BAKBAK or BBQ BOSS or any place with a beer and smoking area, bring me along I wouldn’t mind being invited. Free beer is a plus but I could bargain for a KKB. Text me now or else you will regret this forever. Offer is on while I still haven’t fulfilled my craving for my usual beer dosage. Come on you people hurry up!

Lonely Boy: Series 1


Na gising ako sa inggay ng lugar na ito. Maputik, marumi, di ka-ayaaya, masikip at maalinsanggan. Diko gusto ang aking nakita ngunit wala na akong ibang mapuntahan. Andito na rin lang nga ako, bakit di kaya kalkalin na lang ang kapaligiran. Baka sakaling sa paghahalukay ko ng mga basura na nasa aking harapan ay may makita akong maari kong pagkakitaan.

Matapos ang ilang oras na pagbabanat ng buto tigang na aking lalamunan. Kailangan ko ng maiinom at konting pantawid gutom. Isang basong tubig mula sa tindahan ni... hindi ko naitanong ang pangalan ni Ale OK na ako. Nakiupo ako sa isang papag at naki-nuod ng TV sa isang tindahan. Yun TV ba, yun bang isang box na may mga taong gumagalaw sa loob. May nagsasalita tungkol sa isang nakawan daw sa RCBC. At isang patalastas na paulit-ulit na pinapalabas. Isang pelikula sabi ng mamang bumibili. Nde ako magaling sa english kasi nga naman my Pavorit subject is Tagalog o Pilipino ba yun, basta yung madali lang pero dahil paulit-ulit na nga ang commecial na yun naisipan kong e-memorya ang isang Englesh na linya doon na sinabi ng isang maghihingalong matandang amerikano. Alam ko engles un kasi amerikano ang nagsalita



“Samdi, wen yo lest expec it, samone wil cam into yorlife and mik yo feel less lonli”



Ipagtatanong ko ano ang ibig sabihin nito. Para naman may kahit katiting akong alam na engles.

LB: Ate pwede magtanong?
Ate: Ano?
LB:“Samdi,k wen yo lest expec it, samone wil cam into yorlife and mik yo feel less lonli” ano po ibig sabihin non?
Ate: Aba ewan ko!


LB:Kuya pwede magtanong? Ano po ba ibig sabihin nang: “Samdi,k wen yo lest expec it, samone wil cam into yorlife and mik yo feel less lonli”
Kuya: Ano ba yan?
LB: English daw po!
Kuya: Ewan ko!




Ganon nga ang maging tugon ng lahat ng napagtanonggan ko. Hindi rin pala sila bihasa sa english gaya ko. Umuwi ako na hindi alam kung ano nga talaga ang ibig sabihin ng mga katagang yun. Gumagabi na at medyo pagod na ako sa buong hapon kong paglalagalag. Sa matigas na papag at maingay na electric fan ako mahihimlay. Walang magandang nangyari sa akin sa araw na ito maliban sa isang mahabang engles na pinaghirapan kong e-memorya pero di ko alam ano ang ibig ipahiwatig. Matutulog nalang nga ako. Doon ko papangarapin na sana may dumating na swerte sa akin. Kahit wala ng yaman o karangalan. Basta lang maging masaya ako... Kahit kunting saya lang.





“Someday, when you least expect it, someone will come into your life and make you feel less lonely”



From the movie: Caregiver

excited... on research

We are off to visit dumaguete on October and I can't help myself from talking about it. Im excited and on the hunt for the perfect places in dumaguete. A friend of mine suggested some spots which she says is a must see in Dumaguete. I'm still waiting for the list from her which will include a budget.


I know it is still five months away but I'm on a research mode. I'm excited and is on a saving state. I need all the sideline jobs I could get. Forget about treating one's self after a hard days work. I need to save and should start it as early as now. As in now na.

helping and hurting



“The essence of Buddhism is if you can, help others. If not, then at least refrain from hurting others.”

I wish everybody could live up to this quote. I certainly hope.

To them who proved that one could sacrifice ones life others

To them who cared so much

love so much

and never asked for anything in return

to my mama and to all the mother's

Happy Mother's Day

You are all loved more than you'll ever know.

Love you ma.

At 22...

22 years ago I was born
May 3, 1986 was a cursed day
I was destined to fail
It was my fate to hate my life.

I grew up with very little of everything
It made me dream and want more
My family strengthened my faith
Their values were my pillars
They made me who I am today
22 years after that cursed day
I am still a little imbalanced
Quite shaky in character
Strong but never dominant
Never good but has the tendency to be
Imperfect but still trying hard to change.

I found my soul
In some people I met along the way
They reflected the fragments of me
Together we had a very odd friendship
A friendship that matters
I can wake up one day without a penny
And still want them to be with me
I can laugh my heart out
With their very unusual and funny ways
And if I think everything is falling apart
And the bridge I have to cross is wobbly
They will surely change their paths
And dive in the adventure with me
They were never afraid and weak
I admit there were times
Of doubts and anxiety
But we are still here
And we intend to stay

22 years ago when the cursed started
22 years of pain should have been felt
Looking back, reminiscing what happened
I have my family and my friends
A package I had to take
I realized the curse hadn’t started.
and if this is my curse
and the spell had taken its tool
I would rather be cursed forever more.

Its my birthday... im 22

I woke up late
came to work late
and never even bothered caring what people might say.
The greatest advice I received for my birthday
“Its your birthday, Its okay to be selfish...”
I want to take that advice. I don't wanna think of anything except pleasing my self.
I really can't go far. I'm so damn broke and clueless of whats to come today.
Come what may. I'll just enjoy whatever might happen today.
Hey! Its my birthday anyway...



P. S.
I share this special day with JOSEPH PARAS and OLIVER ARAGON.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US GUYz..............
