ANDITO LANG

  Andito lang ako…   Sa silid kung saan kita unang nakita, noong gabing tumigil ang mundo. Bago ang gabing ‘yon ay matagal-tagal na rin na hindi ako nakakaramdam ng gano’n. ‘Yung pakiramdam na gusto ko ulit umibig. Na gusto

DETOX

So Facebook has become an ugly, ugly place these days. As the Philippine election is coming (about 11 days from now?) people are getting more rabid. A lot of black propaganda here and there. I have never seen my country

LOST IN TRANSLATION

There are just movies that you can watch over and over again. I can name not a few, but for now I really want to talk about this movie that has touched me deep down. It is called Lost in

WHOM DO YOU GET UP FOR?

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

NO TO BULLYING

I saw this video posted on Facebook the other day and I cried. Yes, no shame in admitting that. This video had broken my heart, I did not even watch it fully the first time because I was so mad.

CALM, WULF

I am such a romantic. And sometimes I don’t like it. Generally because of the life I have, the decisions I make… path I chose. I have to have a tough heart. I have to cover it with a thick

I MUST BE NEAR

They say that having all the money in the world will not make you happy. And I believe that to be true. It is like an inverse relationship, of wealth and happiness. The less you have, the lighter your problems

DESPIDIDA

Despidida is a common Filipino word of Spanish origins, and if I’m not mistaken it means “a farewell party or gathering”. As my recent post narrates that I just left Philippines and came here to South Korea to study, I

So while taking a break from reading a lot of stuff, I browsed my Facebook feeds and encountered this video from viddsee, called “Aftershock” and was directed by Remton Siega Zuasola. Watch the video HERE. To be honest, I cried

LAZY SUNDAY + GOOD MUSIC = HEAVEN

After a pub quiz game plus I-really-lost-count number of cocktail shots last Thursday night, and a despidida/dance showdown/unli-alcohol/ultra-charades last Friday night (which left me with only 30 minutes of sleep, by the way), and a whole-day-whole-body mental and physical team-building
