Bought a new phone Samsung Ch@t335.

A Letter to Romeo

I want you to know how important you are to me, how you can be the creator of the person that is in me if you choose to. You alone can break down the wall behind which I tremble. You alone can see behind my mask. You alone can release me from my shadow world of panic and uncertainty and loneliness. So please don't pass me by. I know it will not be easy for you. A conviction of worthlessness builds strong walls. And the nearer that you approach me, the blinder I may strike back. You see, I am to be fighting against the very thing I need the most.

Something To Think About

You can understand people better if you look at them, no matter  how old or  impressive they may be, as if they are children. For most of us never mature, we simply grow taller.

Remembering my Father

 Dad's 30th death anniversary 

It is only when we are forgotten that we ceased to exist. To my Father you're gone but not forgotten.

Our lives are overburdened, and living often seems to us a terrible complicated affair. The problems of the world are so incredibly complex and we see that there are no simple answers. The complexity always leaves us with a feeling of helplessness and powerlessness. And still, amazingly enough, we go on, day by day, always half subconsciously yearning for something simpler, something more meaningful. So how we look for our lives and living becomes tremendously important. It is up to us to bring this authenticity, this simplicity, this directness, this unburdened clarity into our looking. If such a thing as living life fully interest you, then it's up to you to learn about it and live it.


I think it's important to tell children about the continuity of life. We live in a stratified society. Little children are kept together. Adolescents are kept together. Young marrieds are together. And if you remain single people ask you, why? Old people, for goodness sakes, are kept together. I was lucky as a child, because our house was always full of people, grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, new born babies. I could tell you different stories about that all in the same house! And I learned early that life is a continual process and not stratified. I saw old people and I knew that someday I will be old too. I saw people dying and I began to appreciate life. But when you don't see it you don't know that it's there, and you're scared to death of it. Most of us are horrified about death. We don't know how to die or live with dignity. If you have lived with dignity, you'll die with dignity. You don't have to worry about it. As long as you have life you can live right through death. But children have to have some knowledge of this. They have to see it. We hide them from funerals, we don't let them see bodies. We don't give them answers when they say "What happened to my dog?" "What happened to grandma?" "She went away on a trip". Little kids are going to learn what you teach them. They pick up attitude of their parents. If their parents are scared to death, so are they.And that's no pun intended. Then another thing that is essential is that children learn that they have a choice. They will only believe that they have choice if you give them alternatives in their lives.

Trash TV

Local television feeds Filipinos a steady dirty diet of trash.

Road Menace

The worst form of transportation... Not to mention the most undisciplined drivers which always causes heavy traffic on every road in the country. Only in the Philippines!


A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in this world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that your purpose is an illusion. You exercise that combination, so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredible unfulfilled tapestry, and only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours.

Weight Loss Endeavor

Today I am going to embark on a heavy task, and when I say heavy I literally mean heavy. I have been preparing myself for the past few days now on going on a diet. I know to some of you out there this may not be a heavy task but for those who have weight problems and tried on losing them they know pretty much how hard it is to undergo this kind of ordeal. It's a mental test really, self control to be exact. Although I'm not what you call an obese person, I consider myself overweight based on the ratio of my weight to my height. So let's see what happens as I talked about my weight again in a month's time. Wish me luck!

Now Reading "The Last Days" by Joel Rosenberg

Losing Yourself

None of us can heal the things that life has done to us. They're done before we can realize what's being done, and they can make you do things all of your life until these things are constantly coming between you and what you'd like to be. And in that way you seem to lose yourself forever.

Thinking Out Loud

     If a man in the street were to pursue his self, what kind of guiding thoughts would he come up with about changing his existence? He would perhaps discover that his brain is not yet dead, that his body is not dried up, and that no matter where he is right now, he is still the creator of his own destiny. He can change this destiny by taking his one decision to change seriously, by fighting his petty resistances against change and fear, by learning more about his mind, by trying out behavior which fills his real need, by carrying out concrete acts rather than conceptualizing about them, by practicing to see and hear and touch and feel as he has never before used these senses, by creating something with his own hands without demanding perfection, by thinking out ways in which he behaves in a self-defeating manner, by listening to the words that he utters, by listening to himself, by listening to the words and looking into the eyes of those who speak to him, by learning to respect the process of his own creative encounters and by having faith that they will get him somewhere soon.
     We must remind ourselves, however, that no change takes place without working hard and without getting your hands dirty. There are no formula and no books to memorize on becoming, I make my life and no one else makes it for me. I must face my own shortcomings, mistakes and transgressions. No one can suffer my non-being as I do, but tomorrow is another day, and I must decide to leave my bed and live again. And if I fail, I don't have the comfort of blaming you or life or God.
