A trip to San Vicente, Santo Tomas....

November 30, 2007 was a holiday and it means no WORK! Yeah!!! Hooray! But still, I went to the office to attend some VERY important stuff… I texted one of my best friend, Cai last night and told her that we don’t have work tomorrow so instead of going home to Davao, I might just stay here in Tagum since I will be going Home tomorrow night, Saturday..

After having lunch with my officemates (Rio &Debbie), I headed to the terminal of Sto. Tomas. The jeepney was already full when I arrived there so I just sat down at the very edge and told the driver to drop me at 'crossing cabay-angan.' I ride a motorcycle to San Vicente, Santo Tomas where Cai and her family lived. We met at their church and they were having their Thanksgiving there... I saw my 'inaanak' Shine, her nickname, she looked different the last time I saw her... She looked very much like her father now... I can see that Cai's happy with her married life and she seemed contented and didn't have any regrets after all the trials that happened in her life...

San Vicente, Santo Tomas is just a 30 minute ride from Tagum City that's if you'll ride a jeepney, but if you had your own car, it would just take you 15 minutes to be there. You wouldn't see any tall buildings there, you'll only see a wide landscape of rice fields, trees, carabaos, cows and other livestocks... Their life there was so simple yet I see contentment in their happy faces... The people there were friendly and nice too... I've been to this place a couple of times already since college days where I sometimes slept there... We were strolling on their place; Cai, Shine and me then I saw a man towing his carabao on the fields, some were busy planting... The view was really nice that I really wished I have my own digicam so I can capture those moments... We headed to their piggery and they had lots of them... on the next pen were goats and thier newly born kids... aww... they were so cute, too bad I don't have any pictures of them... *sigh* and on the next pen were ducks and geese and they have chickens too... It was like I was having my field trip that day hehehe... I enjoyed watching the kids and Shine enjoyed the experience as well...

Her family treated me as one of their members and was so hospitable. Cai's mom cooked 'Adobong Palaka (Frog)', it's not the ususal frog you'll see in the canal or somewhere else but it's the one you'll see on the rice fields... and it REALLY taste GOOD!!! It's my first time to eat exotic foods like that that I didn't mind the other viands on their table coz I was so busy with the adobong palaka (hahaha). After having dinner I slept at Cai's room again with her baby shine. We were chatting and laughing for hours that we didn't realize it's midnight already and I still have work tomorrow. I really missed those times when we stay up late and just enjoy each others company along with my other bestfriends... I don't know if we could still do that now, well.. I just hope so... Some memories are really hard to forget, especially if it's too memorable... But, that's life... we have to move on....

Early morning, I woke up... It's a saturday, I still want to lay in the bed and get some sleep but I still have work in the office so I get up and get ready while Cai cooked breakfast for me... They then had one of their relative to to drive me back to Tagum. On my way there I saw the rice fields again and the sun was slowly rising... the scene was really nice I can still picture it on my mind... hahaha... but am so sorry I don't have any pics of it.. but still I am so glad that I did went to their place, I really enjoyed my one day stay there... =)

Tagum City's not that fully developed, there were just a few malls which unfortunately closes so early at night (waahh), few bars and restaurants to hang-out with. Though I haven't tour around the whole City yet *smiling* Hhhmm... Well, I was imagining what would be my life in the country... Would I be contented with a life like theirs?

If Only

Directed by: Gil Junger

I can't remember how many times I've seen this movie just this year lang ha, more than 7 times I think *lolz (watched it more than my other favorite movie which is ‘Serendipity’, a very nice movie also). I still can't help but cry after watching it… Here are some of the lines that really moved me...

Paul Nicholls (Ian Wyndham) to Jennifer Love Hewitt (Samantha Andrews): I Love you...
Samantha: Ooh I Love you too.
Ian: I wanna tell you why I love you.
Samantha: It's... It's raining, you know that right.
Ian: I have to tell you this and you need to hear it. I loved you since I met you, but I wouldn't allow myself to truly feel it until today. I was always thinking ahead, making decisions soaked with fear... Today, because of you... what I learned from you; every choice I made was different and my life has completely changed... and I've learned that if you do that, then you're living your life fully... it doesn't matter if you have five minutes or fifty years. Samantha if not for today, if not for you I would never have known love at all... So thank you for being the person who taught me to love... and to be loved.
Samantha: I don't know what to say.
Ian: You don't have to say anything... I just wanted to tell you.

Ian Wyndham: Close your eyes. Happy graduation.
Samantha Andrews: Oh my God.
Ian Wyndham: Some of the charms are old and some are new. That's a musical note, a violin. This one is a flower, what is no sense of matter at all, except it was exquisite much like yourself. Let's see... the train that we took today. And... that's the Eiffel Tower that you've always wanted to see. And... this frying pan, cause you are the only person that I know that can actually do the flipping thing. And... this one's a Heart... My Heart... it's yours now…

~wwwweeeeee.... makakilig oie lolz... I really Love this movie...~

I also love their soundtrack which was originally written & sung by Jennifer Love Hewitt: "Love Will Show You Everything" & "Take My Heart Back"

Unfinished Battle...


I tried to fight the battles in life,

A battle not easy to win.
A fatal strike came one day,
Loosen my hope as i fall hard on ground.
Alone, I'm hurting but much from the inside.
Still, I struggle... Fought hard 'til the end.
Trying to act brave in this lonely mission
Yearning to surpass the pain no one could ever bear.
But as each blow I take,broked my very urge to move on...
The child in me awakened,from the burdens my heart cannot conquer.
Confusion, Anxiety, Agony...
In the depths of the child's soul you'll see.
The journey to find oneself been set on mind.
Wounded heart it carries in an unknown expedition.
Each foe overthrowned as time passed by...
Wounds were healed...
but it's memory forever dwells in it's young mind...

Edgar Allan Poe...

Just want to post this coz i think I have completely forgotten everything about “him”…. though "he" will always remain special in my heart and in my mind....
and now it's time to move on...

Ever since I heard your voice on the radio you’ve caught my attention… Eagerly was then I to know you more and more…



Doing crazy stuffs just to hear your voice… just to see you and for you to spare a little time for me…

Gazing at your picture every night for the past years and only God knows how much you meant for me…

As I lay down to sleep thoughts of you keep haunting me… Always dreaming of one day it’s going to be you and me…

Realized that I don’t mean a thing to you bleeds my heart and sunk in blood…

At the moment I see your happy face… hearing your laughter and in every simple things you do brightens up my day…

Love is the word I know that I feel for you… without asking anything in return but just to let you know I don’t have the courage to say…

Letting go of this feeling I cannot just do for you’ve captured a special place in my heart that no one has ever had…

Always thinking and loving you despite the distance and absence of you… In my heart you’ll always be…

Never know when this feeling will subside but one thing is for sure, I will always treasure every moment I shared with you… Every moment…

Have a Break...

For a month and two days to be exact, I haven't had the chance to go around the city to relax and have some fun... and last night was one of the best days that ever happened in my entire stay here in Tagum City. Staff House – Office and vice versa was my daily routine for one month (sounds boring right?).

Venue: Gold City

We played table tennis and billiards together with my officemates (Wendy, Roy, Julian, Embong and Sir Jun)… For a while, I’ve forgotten all about work and just mind on winning the game… Unfortunately my opponent was really good and I lose the game but still I enjoyed it…

Next: Videoke on the GO!

Hahaha… I was a bit shy when they hand me the microphone to sing a song but then I thought that I was here to have fun, so why not go with the flow… the night ended up so fast and I still wanna go some where else and have fun but we have a lot of work for tomorrow… So we headed back to the staff house and rest… zzzzzz…. Sweet dreams…

Far Away from Home...

I asked for it and I got it… this has been my first time to be away from my family and my hometown for a long time… and I was so excited and at the same time nervous… thinking ‘hey, I’ll be on my own now…’ I am now responsible for every action that I’ll take hence, I’m really really grateful for this opportunity.
I’ve been waiting for this for so long coz I want to be independent, to grow as an individual and try to learn more about myself and life… but I won’t be able to do it if I won’t go away… away from them (my family)… far from them who sustains all my needs… I just hoped that this experience would help me to be matured enough to make my own decisions and be a responsible individual….

FIRST WEEK away from Home..

I was somewhat surprised as I arrived at this City... seeing a bunch of noisy tricycles on the main road (like they were on a race track or something like that…) later on I figured out that this is their way of transportation here… No traffic lights and no route to be followed…

I've been to this City for a few times but never stayed for more than one day... I love to travel and I've been into different places already eversince I was a kid... Sometimes we just passed at this City and never thought of staying or living here but now here I am trying to fit in... trying to make each day a memorable one...


I thought that the brown-out that happened in our office one night was just an accident, but when it happened almost everyday (men! What a city!) I dunno but it’s really irritating when you were so busy working and all of a sudden ----------- brown-out! ggrrr… do you agree with me? Anyways, the city’s clean though and my officemates were nice… but my problem is…. *secret* hahahaha….


SECOND WEEK…

Everything’s going smoothly for this week though the brown-out’s killing me, plus our staff house sooooo quite... no television, no radio *sigh* (can you live with that?) It's a good thing that I brought my mp3 with me this week or else I'll be going crazy over by the silence of the night...


THIRD WEEK…

Men! I got LOST!!! All the tricycles that I had stopped don’t know where DC TECH is… and there’s this one tricycle driver who just get me going on circles around the city… I thought he know where it is… grrr…. So I went off to his cab and try to walk for a few minutes, trying my luck that maybe… somehow… I could find it but then I didn’t… felt hopeless so I go on to my next destination until I reached our office… I was really pissed off that day that I wished I was just in Davao… but too bad I had to face the reality that I am actually here… On my way back, I kept on thinking about what I really wanted before I was here and now that I had it, it’s seemed like I want to back out… but then I thought ‘what the heck .. I’m already here then so be it!’ Fight.. fight.. fight.. hahaha...

Maroon & White '89

I was just looking at some of the stuffs in our cabinet not knowing what exactly I was looking for… There were books, magazines, Bible, etc… First, I was looking at the bible storybook when
a Maroon and White yearbook caught my attention, it was my sisters'. I paused for a while and think of
her, of how I missed her a lot for being not able to be with us here (in the Philippines) and the seldom communication. Right at that moment flashes of scenes were playing like I was watching a movie... way back when it was just the two of us... hanging out, playing games like 'Tagu-anay' (Hide & seek) & 'Sungka' (missed playing that game *sigh*), and her playing a good role as an Ate to me...

I then look at the pictures and try to find my sister’s picture but was so unlucky to hit upon some of the pages that had been cut… Well, I did finally saw her and was surprised to see my sister with me and our mom on the picture, my mom’s carrying me on her left while my sister is on the other side… I really missed my Ate Gaga, I just wished we could spend time together again just like before... Good memories are hard to forgetand that's all been left to us, but no matter what happens, YOU will always be here in my heart and I am forever grateful for all that you've done for me... Thank You! =)

One Tree Hill...

I woke up one night and caught my cousin and sister watching DVD in the living room. It is the season one of the television series entitled “One Tree Hill", borrowed by my cousin from one of her friends. I then sat next to them and started watching it.

The story goes better and better as each episode ends, definitely worth watching. In addition, it’s theme songs were good too that I instantly liked it’s opening song ‘I Don’t Want to Be’ by Gavin DeGraw and just the thought of mentioning it now makes me wanna sing it… *lol*



Here's a few lines from the song:

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me



I can’t wait to watch it’s next season, my cousin’s going to borrow the season two of it… My sister said that it is shown in RPN 9 every Wednesday but just not sure of the time hence, I’ll try and see if it is true. I don't know but it seems like I am already addicted to it... *smiling*



Where nothing ever changed until one outsider changed everything...


Nathan Scott, a beautiful and popular athlete, is the absolute star of the Ravens, his high school basketball team, just as once was his proud dad, ambitious businessman Dan Scott, who pushes him harder then even the coach approves of. When the team celebrates a victory by 'borrowing' a school bus arrests are made; Dan manages to get Nathan escape exclusion, but as others are less lucky the team needs new players, so the coach invites Nathan's half-brother Lucas Scott, who was abandoned with his mother and only plays basketball with a few friends in the park, his passion being reading. When he also seems to hit on with Nathan's girlfriend Peyton, the star dares him one-to-one for high stakes...

Besides a love for hoops, it would seem that Lucas and Nathan are two young men with little in common - except for the dark secret that they share the same father. Arrogant and assured, Nathan is the star of the high school basketball team and hails from the wealthiest family in town. Quiet, brooding and driven, Lucas is a loner, the only child of a single working mom. He's always kept his distance from Nathan. But their lives collide when a twist of fate puts Lucas on Nathan's team. The rumor that's haunted the boys since childhood now becomes more than just whispers as the half-brothers compete not only for control of the court, but also for the heart of Nathan's girlfriend. So unfolds a deep and bitter conflict that's been years in the making; one that will play itself out in their homes, their hearts and at school as they struggle to come to terms with who they really are - and the fact that they may have more in common than they ever imagined.

Miah = Bumblebee


I just watched Transformers yesterday on DVD (pirated but it's a good copy *winks*). It was really C O O L ! ! ! (exaggerated bah?) You can't blame me as I was really amazed by it's animation and it's story as well... Just a few minutes ago, I ran into this Transformers Quiz site and I started answering it and here's the result....


I AM
75%
BUMBLEBEE


As an Autobot spy, Bumblebee is the ultimate robot in disguise. What he lacks in size and strength, he makes up for with courage. He enjoys the company of humans and would do anything for his Earthly friends.

Like Bumblebee, you are good by nature. But beware because mischievous thoughts sometimes tempt you. You want to be a leader and show some promise, but you have much to learn. In addition, you stick to the basics and don't need all the encumberances of modern technology.

If you wanna know which one of the Transformers are you, why don't you try this Quiz now. :)

Learning Experience....

I think I have to let go of my introvert side and be more outspoken… I know I’ve failed the expectation of others and even to myself. I was hurt by the way my evaluation goes but then I have to consider that maybe I really needed to improve more, to work hard on my weaker side and try to enhance it more. It may not be my line of expertise but then I think I still have to exert more effort and improve what is it to be improved. I know I did my part but that’s just what I can do for the moment, it may not be that good to others but for me it was like something that I never thought that I could really do.

I already know from the start that the field I would be entering to would really be a big challenge for me, even though I failed and get hurt by how the result goes, in the end I am still grateful for that experience. It may not be that fulfilling to others but for me it is… I’ve learned a lot from it, learn some things from the tasks that they’ve assigned to me and I've learned a lot more about myself... The experience made me realized and reflect that I needed to improve my character, to be matured and grow in a positive way not for others but for myself. It's not that easy to change yourself but maybe little by little I can manage to do so...

I know I needed to experience those things in order to learn more about myself and life... to learn more for my own growth, so I can be a better person. It hurts but I know I can surpass this and I needed to... I have to... There's more to life than that, what matter is that I've learned to accept those things... God may have other plans for me and He might just be busy planning
and working it out. I don't blame anyone on what happened, I know I have my shortcomings too... I just need to let it go but I just can't control my feelings... I'm not taking it on the negative side and I'm not blaming them, they too just did their part... I won't let my emotions drown me into the darkness but I want to think that it helped bring out the best out of me if this is the way for me to become stronger...

Untitled

I’ve been preoccupied with a lot of things recently… I wasn’t been able to focus on the important things I should be doing… I was given a task to research something on the internet, while miss j was talking to me, giving instructions on what to research and what to do, I was listening… trying to internalize what’s she’s trying to let me do. She walked away a few minutes after that and then I started doing my research… She came back afterwards and asked me to reconstruct what I’ve just sent to her mail. She told me what to do again and left afterwards… she was just gone for a few minutes when all of a sudden I couldn’t remember what she just told me… (hahahaha… silly… dumb me… I hate myself that day). So absent minded... I don’t know where my mind was wandering off that day… I didn’t even understand what I was reading… was I just exhilarated in all those interviews? Excited? I really don't know....

Food for thought....



Photo Link

I was having breakfast alone when my sister came into our dining room and sit beside me. While eating, we were talking about her upcoming acquaintance party and other stuffs regarding her studies. I was about to finish eating, when she remembered an incident that happened yesterday and started telling me her story. Anne said: “Ate Che, Kagahapon ba sa village nila Leah, naay mga bata na nagakolekta ug lamaw.” (Ate {appellation for elder sister} Che, Yesterday at Leah’s village there was a group of kids who are collecting leftovers.) I on the other hand was about to laugh as I had my last piece of food in my plate thinking ‘what’s she’s talking about? I’m still eating’, but then I just disregard it and still continue listening to her. Anne: “Kada balay sila nagakolekta ug lamaw, nagdala-dala sila ug dako na balde, pagkahuman nihunong sila gi-abrihan nila ang balde ug gitan-aw ang mga sulod. Tpos nakakita man na sila ug pizza ilang gikuha ug gikaon. Grabe noh? Luoy kaayo sila”. (They were collecting leftovers in every house holding a big bucket of it and after that they stopped and open it and take a glimpse of what’s inside, They then saw a pizza... took it and started eating it. They're so pitiful.)

With our population rising up and economy's down, it’s the children who are suffering the most. I feel so sorry for those children; a lot of us are still lucky to have fine foods in our dining table while the others out there are busy looking for anything everywhere just to fill their empty stomachs...

...foolish heart...


Don't know why, just out of the blue,

my mind drove off to you.

Years had passed but can't forget this feeling I have for you.

Thought it was gone through the years that had passed,

but it was just resting inside, waiting for the right cue.

As I lay down to sleep,

memories of you keep haunting me on the silent of the night,

alone... I’m still awake...

Painful feelings i always feel knowing your heart's been owned.

Past is past, I know...

but this foolish heart's still shouting for your name.

Deep inside my heart, it's you and always been you it was crying for.

Only you can heal this crazy heart of mine,

but I know it would be dream forever would not come...



=( *sigh*

MarsoKwatro

My best friend is into filmmaking lately, on my birthday she asked me about my LOLO and the incident at the Davao International Airport last March 4, 2003... They were planning to do a movie about it for the Guerilla Filmmaking 4: 2nd Mindanao Film Festival, she's concerned about how I still feel about the incident and at the same time gathered some infos about what happened that day... I still feel sad everytime i think of it but somehow I felt excited thinking of making it into a movie and so I decided to join them.


A few colleagues of mine at AMACC including their friends and their friend's friends were now ready to shoot for our upcoming Short film Entry. Sharon was the one who wrote the script and I'm helping her do some research about it... I really enjoyed the experience that we had during the shoot. I get to meet some friends and they were all nice and friendly… Everyday they have to go to work and at night we had to shoot for some scenes, it was really hard for them also but for the LOVE OF ART they’re still surviving though even if sometimes it takes us ‘til dawn for us to finish some of the scenes. We still manage to laugh and joke at things that happened to us, (Bakit aku nagbumba??!) Though it was really a hard task to let the artist pour his/her emotions into that particular scene but still they managed to do it. There were discussions and arguments but thank God we were able to fix it though the burden was put onto our scriptwriter, as she has to REVISE again some parts of the movie. Still we enjoyed the experience; all the late night walks on the streets carrying our stuffs and all that (Wala na kasing pamasahe…), Sleeping on a petite room with the five of us there to crowd in, going to work and haven’t sleep for nights and the revision of the script over and over again… but the good thing is we were able to finish the film and be able to see it on BIG SCREEN!!! yeah!!! It was amazing… all the hardships were put into that film and you can see the people’s reaction about how the film goes, it makes you so proud of yourself... And a lot more prouder when we got almost all the awards during the awards night... All those sleepless nights were paid off... whew! *lolz* Hurray! to all the cast and crew of "MARSOKWATRO!"





Awards: Best Actor, Best in Musical Score, Best in Editing, Best in Cinematography, Best Director and Red Fist Award for Best Production Value.

Film Description



This film was inspired by the March 4, 2003 (MarsoKwatro) Davao Airport bombing that killed 21 people and injured hundreds more.


The story revolves around three youngsters, their struggles and battles with life, and the individual rage burning in them against the one they believe is their enemy.


The film raises the questions: How does one deal with the hurts and pains caused by the tragic death of a loved one? How does one handle the consequences of his evil act? Where does one go after experiencing such a tragic incident?
