2017: Chasing Happiness

“Because it’s not just everybody deserves to be happy, but everyone has a chance to grab happiness and chose to have it.”

2016.

A year full of chances and opportunities. It brought me lessons I would bring through the succeeding years. It taught me a lot of things. Things that are more important than what our naked eyes could see. It even took me to places with little essence of paradise. And most importantly, it has given me a chance to make things right and straighten crooked lines from 2015.

I learned that your best friend could forget your birthday, but it doesn’t matter anymore after a 13 second sad momentum because you love her more than what odds could bring. I learned that not all would stay the same. It’s not that you aren’t aware of the phenomenal changes on earth, but you always chose to believe it has to be like this because it was fucking like this before. But no, you don’t need changes-acceptance. You had that. What you need is a little sprinkle of reality that “change” is a status quo. However, it only works through your mind, but not to your heart. Because what you feel would fade, but nah-uh..it wouldn’t change. (Like, you loved Chuckie drink, it fades but you’ll never forget the feeling every time you take a chocolatey sip.) 2016 brought me a piece of opportunity to “fix myself” though. You could start with my job, new acquaintances, friendship, and you could include love. Oh, that freaking feeling.

Nevertheless, 2016 taught me that love is and will never be adjacent to fate. You feel it, but it was never crafted across your lead. You have to explore it, you have to fight for it, you have to chose it and most of all you have to let him/her know that you’re willing to do what you have just read. *laughs* sort of like that. Am I going to do it? I don’t know yet. 2017 knows.

Friendship. Chances. Fate. Love. What else did I learn?

Oh, yah. One more thing.

I learned that not wearing a watch makes you more human. Haha believe me or not you have to believe me. Time flies baby. And you’ll never know what you’re missing within 3 seconds every time you look at your watch, every time you feel the pressure of time. Breathe. Think. And then breathe again.

Time is a man-made grid. Not bad to forget it some time.

Lastly, I want to take this as an opportunity to tell you (whoever’s reading) that life could be miserable, sad and arrogant most of the time.. but have the right to chose happiness. Because it’s not just everybody deserves to be happy, but everyone has a chance to grab and chose to have it.

Say thank you to last year, and say hi to 2017. A year full of chances. Full of choices. *** Well, it’s always been, pal! 🙂 ***

Late night banat

“Para saan pa ang Sorry mo, kung nakasakit ka na..”

Have you watched Miss Universe 2015?

Masyadong kontrobersyal. Pero parang kampana na paulit ulit na kumakalembang sa tenga ko ang Sorry ni Kuya.

Sorry.

Limang letra yan pero parang kailangan mo munang magpakain sa shark na color pink bago mo masabi yan. At alam kong hindi lahat ng tao marunong maghanap ng pink shark. (Charot.)

Madalas kapag naririnig ko ang salitang yan, madalas ko ring masabi na: Huwag mo masyadong gamitin, baka magasgas.

Baka mawalan ng bisa tulad ng super powers ni Superman.

Magandang isipin na humingi ng paumanhin si Kuya. Sa puntong yon, masarap isiping kaya niyang magpakain sa kulay pink na pating. Kaso lang brad..

Para saan pa ang Sorry mo, kung nakasakit ka na..

14th Franchise & Business Expo 2015: Kwentong Medyo Seryoso

ex1

Hindi lahat ng event na may red carpet, kailangan naka gown at high heels. Minsan sapat na naka flats ka. Naimbitahan ako sa isang event dyan malapit sa pinapangarap kong Ferris wheel. Pero hindi ito tungkol sa pangarap kong yan. Tungkol ito sa iba’t ibang negosyo na pwede mong pagkaabalahan habang nananatili ka sa mundong ibabaw.

Sobrang dami. Magsimula ka sa pagtinda ng tubig, sorbetes, siomai, tinapay, langis, tapsi, sapatos, damit, paintings, gamot, gas, load, insurance, furnitures, advertising (kami yun!) patatas na may iba’t ibang flavor, at marami pang iba. Meron din dun nagtayo ng booth para sa artwork ng mga bata.

ex2ex3ex4ex5ex7

May nagpaligsahan din sa pag-ubos ng pizza na may hot sauce!
ex6

Ngunit may mga ilang bagay na nakatawag ng aking mumunting pansin..

Etong higanteng water dispenser na ‘to. Ayoko ng masyadong malaking lalagyanan ng tubig dahil hindi yan magkakasya sa maliit naming bahay. Dahil may mga bagay na hindi pwedeng ipilit. At ayoko na din sundan ng hugot, dahil sabi ko nga, this is a business expo.

ex9

Isa pa sa mga ito ang booth na ito.. gumagawa sila ng mga container para sa kape, fries, meals..etc, na gawa sa bio na materials. Earth friendly kung baga. Sana tangkilikin po natin ang mga ganitong klaseng produkto. 🙂

ex10

Ang isa naman na ‘to..Pilit kong inaalala kung saan, kelan ako nakapunta sa kainan na ‘to. HIndi ko talaga maalala. Pero sadyang familiar ‘to. At halos hindi pa rin mawala sa alaala ko ang lasa ng beef na may broccoli dito. Masarap ho talaga.

ex12

At higit sa lahat na nagpasaya sa akin dito eh ang mga libreng pagkain. May libreng tinapay, libreng kape, libreng babasahin, libreng ice cream na gawa ng isang Bicolano! Akalain mo yan. kababayan ko pa. At syempre, ang libreng popcorn para sa lahat!!  Masarap talaga kapag libre. hahaha

ex8

Marami din akong nakausap na tao. Isa na dyan ang isang inventor. Naaalala kong minsan na syang nainterview sa tv. Naghahanap daw siya ng pwede niyang maging partner sa invention niya na nakakapagconvert ng tubig. Sayang naman po ang mga ganitong bagay. Konting suporta naman galing sa gobyerno. Please.

May nakausap din akong negosyanteng intsik. Na halos hindi kami magkaintindihan nung una sa load. Haha nakalimutan kong postpaid nga pala sa ibang bansa. Yung totoo Ge? Ang gwapo kasi ng kausap ko. haha yun talaga yun. charot 😛

-Thank you Tita! 🙂 Nag-enjoy po ako. Hindi ko makita ang salitang trabaho sa ginawa ko.

At syempre, salamat sa isang kaibigan na baliw kasi po sinamahan niya ko at nagkulay kami haha I love you Camille! ❤

Kwentong Gilas, Kwentong Puso: HugotPaMore FIBA Edition

“Harapharapan ka nang sinasaktan, pero wala pa rin siyang pakialam.”

Wala akong masyadong alam pagdating sa larangan ng sports, pero ang makita kong sapul sa mukha ang braso slash kamay..

“Wala akong alam, pero hindi naman ako ganun katanga!”

Kailangan nating tanggapin na minsan talo tayo.. Na minsan kahit alam nating ginawa naman natin ang lahat… Hindi pa rin sasapat. Hindi tayo sasapat.

“Sige ako na may mali, akin na lahat ng mali! Sayo na lahat ang tama!”

Luto raw ang laban.

At sa pagkakataong ito, gusto kong paniwalaan ang nakita ko at hindi sa kung anong sinabi ng iba. Na meron talagang mahilig manakit. Na meron at merong mananakit sayo, sadya man o hindi. Na meron talagang bulag at walang marinig. Na kahit harapharapan ka nang sinasaktan, wala pa rin syang pakialam.

-Salute to Gilas Warriors. 🙂 Na kahit nasasaktan na sila, tinuloy pa rin ang laban hanggang dulo. 🙂
