May You Always Feel Loved

May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand.

May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone.

May you discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending. Teach love to those who know hate, and let that love embrace you as you go into the world.

May the teachings of those you admire become part of you, so that you may call upon them. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and who have touched yours are always a part of you, even if the encounters were less than you would have wished. It is the content of the encounter that …

Ewan…

Hindi ko alam kung bakit ka ganyan
Mahirap kausapin at ‘di pa namamansin
Di mo ba alam ako’y nasasaktan
Ngunit ‘di bale na basta’t malaman mo na

Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Ngumiti ka man lang sana
Ako’y nasa langit na
Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Sumagot ka naman wag lang, ewan

Sana naman itigil mo na ‘yang
Kakasabi ng ewan at anong bola na naman yan
Bakit ba ganyan, dalaga’y ‘di alam
Na ang ewan ay katulad na rin ng oong inaasam

Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Ngumiti ka man lang sana
Ako’y nasa langit na
Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Sumagot ka naman wag lang, ewan

Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Ngumiti ka man lang sana
Ako’y nasa langit na
Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Sumagot ka naman wag lang, ewan

Time warped dreams....

Have you ever had a dream that seemed to last for several hours, only to wake up and realizing that you've been asleep for an hour or so?

I have, and it's quite disorienting to the say the least.

And the subject is quite weird, something that I never really consciously thought of for the past several years.

Sometime ago I wrote a post about this girl that I once knew about six years ago.

I dreamed that I recently bumped into her and we had a very long chat about anything and everything that took place after we parted ways. In my dream I was surprised since the meeting was only by chance, and strangely enough, other people in my life, such as past and present officemates, classmates, etc. were present in the dream, as if slices of my life from various times were all lumped into one episode.

Kinda like the last scene from the movie Titanic except of course, none of us were dead, there was no ship or iceberg involved, there was no applause, and no kiss at the end of the scene. But oth…

Human nature....

It's been more than ten days since I last made a blog entry.

I've been feeling a tad out of it the past couple of weeks, and I just couldn't seem to trouble myself with the effort of making a new blog post.

In addition, the sluggish nature of my internet connection hasn't helped things either, with Blogger.com taking forever to open on my browser.

While things have improved (slightly) with regard to my internet connection, blogging is still turning out to be quite a chore.

What is it that's been bugging me lately? Is it New Year's blues? Blogger's block? Lack of interest? Plain boredom? Well, to be honest, it seems to be all of them, with some other things thrown in for good measure.

Bloggers, like actors, need their motivation. And I seem to have misplaced mine.

So why do I blog anyway? And what has changed as of late which made be lose interest in blogging?

Primarily, I blog as a means of self-expression, of sharing my views with the other denizens of the blogos…

Saddam Hussein's last moments....

This is a leaked video of the execution of former Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein last December 30 taken using a camera phone.

The execution took place more than three years after his capture, on December 13, 2003. He was sentenced to death by the Iraq Special Tribunal, for crimes against humanity on November 5, 2006. His final appeal was dismissed on December 26, 2006, and the execution was carried out four days later at an Iraqi military base in Kadhimiya, known as Camp Justice.

Up to the very last moment, Saddam Hussein remained unfazed and defiant, smiling and talking, reciting the Shahadah, amidst all the supposed taunts coming from the onlookers.

The prison guard who allegedly took this video has been subsequently arrested. Since then, this clip has been aired on Al-Jazeera television and has circulated freely on the internet.

Given the graphic nature of the content, viewer discretion is strongly advised.

Hindi Ako Bakla

I don't know about you, but the first time I saw this video from Michael V.'s Bubble Gang Anthology, I was just positively bursting at the sides. :-)

In English, the title means: "I am not gay".

While I certainly don't have anything against gay people, I do think Michael V. does a pretty funny impersonation of the local stereotypical screaming faggot, though the transition to one takes a few minutes in the video. :-)

Absolutely hilarious. :-)

Echusss...

Anong kinakalat mo, ba't ka naman ganyan
Tinitira mo 'ko ng talikuran
Di mo ba alam, ako'y nasasaktan
Turing ko sayo'y kumpare pa naman

Sabi nila
Tinawag mo kong bakla
Maldita kang talaga
At ang kapal ng mukha

Hindi ako, di ako bakla
Sa boses palang, di mo ba halata
Pag di ka tumigil ng pagsasalita
Sasampalin kita
Hindi ako baklaaaaaaa...
Hindi ako baklaaaaaaa...
Hindi ako baklaaaaaaa...
Ho ho ho…

New Year's blues and the Dilbert syndrome....

I'm in a rut lately. The ushering in of a new year almost always does that to me.

Imagine, a whole year gone...and hardly anything to show for it.

Things have been difficult lately...though probably from a mental perspective more than anything else.

I've lost my drive at work, fueled in part by the holiday blues, management's flawed decision making, the inevitable slowdown that comes every holiday season, and the even longer slowdown still to come in anticipation of the coming elections.

I mean...what's the point?

Of course that's not really a healthy attitude to have, I know. But that's simply the way things are in the government corporation where I work.

I really need to get out of here, and find something else to do. Even my blogging has been adversely affected. For some reason I haven't been as prolific a blogger as I once was. I guess I just got tired of all the politics and stuff that I used to write about.

Let's face it. Being in the company of mediocr…

Welcome 2007!
