My Birthday is Extended

Last August 12 I celebrated my 23rd year of whirling existence. It was the same as ever except for one thing – only few remembered it. But in the last 16 days, the words “Belated Happy Birthday” dominated most of the text messages that I received.

For those I was not able to thank please understand that my cell phone load is usually courtesy of 808. Otherwise, we (the entire family) are practicing the principle “One for all; All for one.”

So, let me take this opportunity to tell you – THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! I have already been celebrating for more than two weeks. That's rare, don't you think?

P.S. If this will continue until December, I will inform Guinness World Records. Okay, I'm exaggerating!!! Hehehe!!!

The Truth of the Matter

There are a lot of things that I want to do (and have). But most of it, I prefer no to go for it.

In my 23 years of existence I have realized that our thoughts and feelings are not the most important things to consider in making a decision. There are times, it is appropriate to ponder on the point of views and feelings of others regardless of the possible effect. In my case, majority is negative.

Assuming, in a crucial situation in which there's too much pressure from other people, you did not get what you were expecting. Hence, you are disappointed. You are mad. Really, really mad! So, what’s next? You would realize that you always know the right thing to do but you are also aware that some of our actions might affect others so you chose to be considerate.

The truth of the matter is that some things are not meant to happen; that not everything that we wished for will come true. Still, life must go on . And hopefully, in the future, you can decide on your own without fear of guilt.

Paanyaya

Isa ka ba sa milyun-milyong Pilipino na naiirita sa mga nangyayari sa iyong bansang sinilangan?

Sa pagkakataong ito nais kong ibahagi sa inyo ang isang sanaysay na nabasa ko sa pagsasaliksik sa internet. Ito ay pinamagatang “My Short Essay about the Philippines” by Jaeyoun Kim.

Ano pa ang hinihintay mo? Buksan mo na

Oops! Binuksan mo nga, binasa mo naman ba?

PILIPINO AKO... TALAGA?!

IAALAY KO ANG AKING BUHAY, PANGARAP,
PAGSISIKAP SA BANSANG PILIPINAS

Oops! Iniisip mo bang gawa ko yan? Dyan ka nagkakamali. Yan ang huling bahagi ng “Panatang Makabayan” mula sa bagong version nito. Madali lang bigkasin ang mga salitang naisulat, di ba? Ang tanong “kaya mo rin kayang panindigan?”

P.S. Alam ko kasama sa mga pangarap mo ang iyong pamilya, eh ako kaya kasama rin? Eh si Kris Aquino? Si Marvin at Jolina? Yung mayor ng lungsod kung saan ka kabilang? Eh yung mga batang nagtitinda ng sampaguita sa may simbahan? At mga nakatira sa Payatas Dumpsite, kasama rin kaya sa mga pangarap mo?
