In times like this, I always recall this simple TV commercial in the Philippines that was launched a few years back. It was the coffee brand Nescafe, and it was centered on the theme “Para Kanino Ka Bumabangon?” (For Whom Do You Get Up In the Morning)

Here’s a copy of that video I found in youTube:

It was a basic question, yet we tend to forget this sometimes. It seemed easy, but it begs to answer, what is your purpose for getting up in the morning? Why bother leaving your warm cozy bed? Why eat breakfast, tread the morning traffic, and live your day? What for?

Just a few minutes ago, I got up for my morning toilet routine. It was still very early. And actually, it’s getting colder these days (which I like so far). And then I saw some guy from the house across us, he came out of his door, left his house, and went to walk towards the bus stop. Based on his get-up, I am guessing he’s off to work (on a Sunday!).

And then it dawned on me… Para Kanino Ako Bumabangon Ngayon?

(For whom do I get up these days?)

About lonewulf

I am a self-confessed 'jologs', a country boy who now works in the big city. I studied Applied Math, and am now completing Finance while working as a risk analyst. I feel extremely happy whenever I dance, draw/sketch, and write. I also like to read books, eat (not fruits, or vegetables), sleep, and travel. Update (12/2017) - I have already completed my Finance Masters in Diliman, plus Financial Engineering in Korea. I came back to Manila just last year from the Land of the Morning Calm, and is now currently working as a Risk Manager for a multinational financial institution. I am now updating this information box in the hopes that I will get my groove back into writing. I kinda missed it. And I actually have tons and tons of adventures that I have not logged in here. Hope to catch up to what's happening in my life. Here's to hoping for more adventures, and having enough time and energy to share all of them in this online realm. Cheers!
