One Step Closer...

It actually even came to this moment that I have to visit this online journal again and write my thoughts down. For the record, I think I only do this when I am so bothered with something that I wouldn't be able to let a day pass without transforming these oh-so-random emotions into words. It has already been quite long enough since I felt writing something down, and actually did write it down. So here it goes...

I just realized, I actually have been eyeing on you for quite some time already. I never thought that you'd be interested, too, in a kind of serious way as I may assume. It also didn't cross my mind that it'll deepen into a connection such as this. And now, it has finally come to this point. With this situation in my hands, I always ask myself, "Is this right? Is it right to let this go on?" With differences that may set boundaries between us, it is a bit hard to think it over repeatedly. Especially with the fact that I may be a pretentious bitch sometimes.

You see, it somehow bothers me how your absence annoys me in an indescribable way. And the thought of me being annoyed with it makes me even more annoyed. Could this be a sign that I long for your everlasting company? Well, so much for everlasting. I wonder if this'll be a happy ending.

I have always been afraid to let my real emotions, in relation to this certain matter, be seen by anyone else but myself. I can't really say that you're making me vulnerable to things like these, rather you make me softer than my usual self. Okay... this doesn't mean that you make me feel special nor do I feel that you're special. It's just that as long as I am having fun, I'll think of it as something worth trying. As I do not want to put labels into things, and I hope you'll understand, I guess I'll enjoy whatever we have now. And maybe we'll take things slowly to see what its real worth is. For now, I dedicate this song to you.

A very disappointing secret

No offense, but I think this should be titled, "A very disappointing secret affair" instead.

I know it's already a bit late to blog about this, but just this Saturday last week, it was very unexpected that I joined my friend and his family watch a movie in Resort's World. The bonding might have been unexpected, but it was so expected that we'd watch "A Secret Affair".

So, do Anne and Derek plan to make movies only according to this theme: Infidelity.

Without bias, the movie was so predictable. Yes, maybe Anne is a great actress with her bitchiness with a twist of some humor but the movie basically has a single point in its plot. It was as if a single point was stretched into an hour and a half movie. We understood from the very beginning that Sam, Andi Eigenmann's character, lost her virginity to her friend's boyfriend. And their relationship deepened, as to Sam's point of view, because of their frequently-not-so-casual sex. But c'mon, guys will always be guys. When they become discontented with their sex life partners, they'd go banging around some other girls. I don't intend to generalize all men, though. But Sam is just too dumb blinded by love to see that the guy only wanted her for sex, and only sex.

The lines during the cat fights were nice, though. Very bitchy and funny at the same time. But one more thing I hate, aside from the plot, is Andi Eigenmann's voice. No offense to her, but she has this cracked up voice, which is not sexy at all for someone playing a role of a mistress.

Having basically the same plot, this just shows us the creativity level of the people in the movie industry. Though I'm not saying that "A Secret Affair" is like a "No Other Woman" Part II since this time Anne Curtis is the legal life partner unlike in the latter where she was the mistress. Quite a big difference, eh?

On the positive note, this movie showed that even you love a person so much, but you know that the person is cheating behind your back, then you should go save yourself as early as you can in order to save yourself from hurting even more. And most importantly, save yourself from a lifetime commitment which you or your partner can't commit to. Wow! I didn't know I got a realization from that movie.

To wrap things up, I wasn't satisfied with the movie, rather watching it in the cinemas. I still think that watching horror films in cinemas is still a better way to spend one's money. But if you are having the Anne Curtis syndrome, then it wouldn't hurt if you watch this sequel-like film in the big screen!

Piso fare to all destinations!

Yes, you read that right. Piso fare to all Philippine and International destinations! Today is the last day of the seat sale promo, actually. But unfortunately, Cebu Pacific Air seemed to be fully booked already on the first day of the promo. I know that because I tried scheduling a local flight during the first day of the promo, since it'll only cost around 300-400 Php, but it was really hard to get through their site probably due to traffic overload. 

But even though it says Piso fare, there are a lot of additional costs or the flight, such as taxes. My friend booked a flight for Singapore. The ticket costs Php 17.00 but the taxes summed up to around Php 15,000. I know, it's not much of a treat afterall.

I know that this is really a heartbreaker. And I'm so sorry if I let you guys keep your hopes high. It's just really hard to purchase tickets during seat sale promos as big time as this. Anyway, to keep yourself updated with such promos, you can subscribe to Cebu Pacific. Just click HERE!

Will Be Back Soon

It has been months since I last wrote something here. Have I gone too busy or just simply uninspired? Or maybe I have just lost my muchness, like what the Mad Hatter always tells Alice Kingsley. Because even if there are things I find significant, which I want to be immortalized in this online journal, it feels like I am out of words to write down.

I would love to be able to write again, but this time I want to write things that I will not laugh at when I reread them in the future. Though it'll be nice to keep something that would make me happy whenever I'll be my emo self again. And besides, writing is one of the most effective ways of relieving one's stresses in life, well at least for my case.

Anyway, I was supposed to write some things about something, rather someone, but it seems like I can't find the right set of words to put in this write-up. Well, it doesn't have to be necessarily right, as long as I feel my freedom to express whatever I want, then that'll be a huge relief.

I would like to continue this blog and be able to vent out my feelings again, however I want it to be in a different approach this time. Well, I just hope that I can improve my way of writing. In a way that people, including myself, will find this journal entertaining; that is if people care. I am being really senseless right now, even more senseless than my usual senseless self so I might as well end this very random post.

Love need not to be reciprocated.

I don't know what is wrong with myself, but I am liking again the same person I used to like way back to a couple of years ago. But the feeling seems to be deepened and it may be because we've both grew more mature over the years. However, this bullshit feeling should not even materialize back since the reason I couldn't let the feeling persist back then is still the same reason why I am trying to dematerialize this feeling now. But, love need not be reciprocated, eh? But if I choose this path of unrequitted love, I am only hurting myself more, now that the distance between us is as little as it can be, or so I think it is.

So many ifs and buts in my head right now, but one thing is for sure, I enjoy whatever we are now and will try to make the best out of it. It's more fun to give, eh? But the glorious feeling when receiving it back will always be, of course, non-comparable.

Anywaaaay, to segue from this drama queen aura, I think I'm liking this new "close" friend I have. And it's a really good thing that we've gone closer and closer. Too bad he's a year younger and it's making me think that I am some kind of pedophile, or maybe not since he'll be 18 in no time. You think that you are this kiddo who I am talking about? Hmm.. maybe. :p Nonetheless, I will try my very best to be the nicest bitch to him, since I think that I am not very ate-like to him. Good thing that I'm not bro-zoned.

P.S. Whenever you call, baby, I roll up... I can be your best friend, and you be my homie.

Secret Confession: Ren Not Allowed

I'm really sorry to whoever you are, but I just can't stop myself from blogging this one. Don't worry, I'll try my best not to name anyone, nor give an idea on the sexes of the people involved here. I'm guessing that you won't probably be reading this shit anyway, since no one really cares on what I write.

I got a news just this morning that someone confessed to my really close friend, someone who I treat like as if he/she is my very own child. Just so you guys know, the confession was made in person. One message, great for you, kiddo! Honestly, the confession isn't really that of a big deal, obviously... since it's kind of normal to hear stories from my friend that some people go crushing on him/her - even when my friend just passes along a group of young people by the corridor. Talk about crush ng bayan, eh? Well, actually, the big deal here is that this person told my friend not to tell anyone about the confession, which is kind of normal, but the abnormal part was that the person told my friend to not tell who he/she is especially to Ren!

Did I just see my name up there? Okay, this made me think as if something is not right. Why would this person mention me in such kind of delicate topic? I know my friend and I are close and all that, but why was the secret thing especially a secret for me? Having heard that, some people crossed my mind, and I even thought that it must be someone close to me. Or maybe it's that person I've always teased with my friend lately. If it is not against ethics to name some people, I would, really. Too bad I still value ethics. And too bad my friend doesn't, 'coz if my friend did, I wouldn't probably be partly informed about this weird confession.

Having to know an information this half-cooked, I swear to everyone, including my dog, that I will find out who you are (by myself!!!) through the use of my special powers, behold... my super stalking ability! But don't worry, if your main reason for specifically keeping this secret from me is that you think I'm such a gossip-mouthed bitch, then I shall prove you wrong! With the help of Facebook and Chuwitter, I shall have your name spelled out without a single mistake. Mark my words, you!

P.S. If who I think you are is right, and I think that we are close and that there is a chance that you might be reading this right now, I really prefer if you send me a personal message right now in Facebook and spill the details. I promise not to tell. You know how great of a friend I am to you, and I wouldn't want such secrets between us.

And if we ain't close, just ignore the P.S. message above.

Dedicatedly and desperatedly yours,

Iglesia Ni Cristo's event in Quirino Grandstand, not a political-inclined agenda

An aerial view of Iglesia ni Cristo's Grand Evangelical Mission in Quirino Grandstand
28th February 2012, MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) held its Grand Evangelical Mission (GEM) in accordance to the religion's theme for 2012, PUSPUSANG PAGPAPALAGANAP NG EBANGHELYO, meaning a thorough dissemination of the Gospel of the Lord. Reiterating, it is an EVANGELICAL MISSION and not some kind of "rally" or "prayer rally" as the media claimed in the news earlier this day. And besides, prayer rally is El Shaddai's (and other Protestant groups) thing, and most definitely not INC's.

I am fully disturbed by the insensitive public defamation the media have spread around in their headlines regarding this religious event held. They have ill-reported false facts to the public as they claimed the event as a political rally against the impeachment of Corona.

This article below is just a proof on how unreliable the media is, as they always eye on INC as an influential group, known for "block voting", for politics. Well, block voting may be true, but in fact, INC is not, in any way, politically inclined.

Calancan Bay Seeks For Attention

Instead of finishing my first draft for my thesis proposal, which is due later, lemme just share a bit of something of what I'm working at.

Calancan Bay, Marinduque Island, Philippines

Marinduque Island, known to harbor the largest copper reserve in the Philippines, has started its mining copper operations since 1969. This mine reserve which has been operated by Marcopper Mine Corporation is known as the Mt. Tapian ore deposit whose mine tailings were discharged into Calancan Bay. For 16 years, Calancan Bay, being the dumpsite for an estimated total of no less than 200 million metric tons of toxic mine tailings, was contaminated, thus resulted to destruction of Marinduque’s river system as well as lead contamination of the populace. Metal contamination and chronic lead poisoning of victims remain untreated until today.

On 24 March 1996, the Marcopper Mine broke into global news due to a mining accident at their Marinduque mine. This has been regarded as one of the Philippines’ largest mining disasters to date. The toxic spills immediately caused flash floods affecting five villages with about 4,400 individuals with their sources of drinking water contaminated with chemical elements from the mine tailings and fishes killed (Esguerra, 2003).

Detection of Heavy Metals in Calancan Bay

Although mining operations in the said area have stopped at the beginning of the 21st century, mining pollution history still results to the presence of heavy metals in the vicinity. High heavy metal, such as total copper, total lead and total zinc, concentrations were detected in the water and soil samples obtained from the waterways of Marinduque, particularly around Calancan Bay. The heavy metals concentration detected were higher than the standards prescribed by the government, the DENR, for Class SB waters – this is the classification where bodies of water which are suitable for commercial and industrial use, including ecotourism and recreational activities, are under. The occurrence of the high concentrations in the area may be due to the strong water currents which may possibly be held responsible for the enhancement of distribution of the pollutants or the heavy metals. However, levels of heavy metal concentrations vary in the soil and water samples collected, these differences observed may have also been associated with the presence of organic matter in the samples (Marges, 2011).

Study Hard, Party Harder, Pray Hardest

So, a new motto's up and I know almost everyone can relate to it HEHEHEHE. Anyway, this title is just a repost from a friend's status update in Facebook. The semester is coming to its worse, talk about the start of having Animal Developmental Biology Lecture under a prof-who-must-not-be-named,two unappreciated factors now joined as one.

I should not be blogging this randomly right now since I have an exam later from a professor, whose test exams I rarely pass. "It's not you, it's me." Oh... maybe it's her mind-torturing exam questions, too. But really, thanks to myself for cramming this all the way to failure. Well, plant studies may sound unexceptionally easier as compared to animal studies, but that just ain't the case. I know you, my fellow Bio people, can relate to this. Though I'm not saying that I'll choose Animal Physiology over Plant Physiology anytime of the day HEHEHEHE. Having to have finished reading one lecture done, yes, that's right, one powerpoint down! I know I gotta put all my nerves into concentration, my butt to working, no, not the kind of work you're thinking O.o and study hard in this last exam for my not-so-loved plant part of DevBio.

Anyway, I'll spend my afternoon with someone really close to me and my heart, and I just hope we spend it the most fruitful we can. But I'll still be happy loads just to see that person again. Yay, good vibrations January!

More of the GVs coming, vERdict 4 is tonight already. It's the biggest med/law party of the year DAW. Okay, feeling med already. But, but, but... it's a party where you can meet people who understands you the most... more GC people HEHEHEHE.

Does the program title mean like having a decision in the Emergency Room? Interesting...

Just got the invitation yesterday, and I hope we're going. Anyway, I still want to go party even if it's vERdict or not. Though, I'm thinking that parties get wilder when you know no one, except for a couple of friends you are with. Judging from experience that is HEHEHEHE. But 250php won't harm us trying this med/law party anyway. Someone I met told me that these people, med students, party the hardest. Well, I'm not sure if it's true but we still have a saying, "Study hard, Party harder."

However, let's make a little modification to that 'coz right now I'm trying to study hard so that I can guiltlessly party harder later and will pray the hardest so that I can finish everything I need to study and that I'll be forgiven for I will commit another sin. To live such short life, might as well make your parents proud and study hard; might as well make yourself the happiest and party harder; and never forget to look up and pray the hardest.

Garlic-Powered Nails

Since I miss blogging already, especially blogging something related to fashion and vanity, I'll be sharing a newly-founded idea (well, it's new for me) I bumped into the worldwide net. This actually made me thought of having a Vegetable of the Month section in my blog, considering that I am a Biology major. Okay, that's like so Plant Taxonomy, so... no, thanks. :))

Kingdom Plantae
Order Asparagales
Family Amaryllidaceae
Subfamily Allioideae
Genus Allium
Species Allium sativum

Just to let you know what garlic looks like hehehe

Allium sativum or garlic, in layman's term, is an extremely versatile plant native to central Asia. From cooking recipes, to medicinal applications, to health-related properties, just name it and Captain Garlic will come to your rescue.

He may look like a pussy, nor is he Captain Garlic, but Boy Bawang has incredible garlic powers, too!

According to "The Herbal Home Remedy Book," garlic's antibiotic properties can help a wide spectrum of illnesses, including colds, sore throats, strained muscles and earaches. Garlic also has anti-oxidative, antiseptic, antibiotic, anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and even anti-cancer properties. And it is also believed to reduce cholesterol. Okay, well, I'm not here to lecture about GC stuff like this.

Strong nails that do not break easily and grow fast is the dream of every woman who wants to have lovely hands, which is exactly not the case for me.

Yes, yes, I nail bite, and I wish I am that hot.

There are natural home remedies to keep the nails strong, and might as well help it grow longer. However, if we want to have beautiful nails it is necessary to devote a few minutes of our daily routine to them (or at least once a week). And yes, I'm not into devoting my time for my nails, either.

Now that we have gotten to know most of garlic's benefits, aside from cooking with and eating garlic, the juice in fresh garlic will also strengthen and harden weak, brittle fingernails. All we need is a clove or two of crushed garlic and a nail polish of your choice.

To harden our nails with the help of garlic powers, all we have to do is:

1. Chop and crush a clove, or two, of garlic and add this to your nail polish.

2. Let this sit for several days, allowing the garlic paste to settle in your nail polish. This lets your old regular nail polish becomes a strengthening solution! (Some store-bought nail hardeners list garlic extract as an ingredient. e.g. Mavala Scientifique Nail Hardener and Oleda Hard Hard Nails.)

But if you're doubting about this technique, or if you don't use nail polish but still want to strengthen your nails, you can just try to dab the garlic paste on your nails and let it stand for a few minutes until it dries. Doing this for a couple of days will yield the same benefits. Just don't forget to wash it after, or you'll be making Edward Cullen run away from you all the time.

On Ubiquity and Homosexuality

Note: This is a vague poem I made for our Hum integration paper on the theater film Care Divas and the documentary Paper Dolls, both regarding Filipino homosexual caregivers in foreign countries.

Bitch, please. She is one truly proud drag queen.

As I walk across a four-cornered room,
Where everything feels like at its doom;
All I see is an empty space,
Not until I saw a familiar face.

A murky image of you I see,
Whose figure I thought serves as the key;
Pushed me recklessly away from home,
Said you don’t care even if I die alone.

To muster such strength with no ease,
I beseechingly bent down on my knees;
You know that freedom is what I plead,
And acceptance is all that is I need.

Of all the people, why must it be you?
Not everyone treats me wrong like you do.
Of all the love I wish to have,
Time won’t mend this scar I love.

Now, the time has come,
Permanently away from you and home;
I heard no goodbyes for you and I,
Oh, Daddy, why is it that now you cry?

Yey for my first post for this year! :D :D :D
