Reading makes immigrants of us all

Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere. ~Jean Rhys

My books care less
even if I haven't taken a shower
or even brushed my teeth
when i am into them.
Reading is just all they need.
And we're both happy.

The last 24th of this year isn't the first night that i welcomed Christmas all by myself. I have spent some few years back walking my way home from the 24th evening mass just in time for 12 midnight. I have been accustomed to my solitary life during yuletide seasons, but not much having too much aversion for the holidays.

I spent the last few hours of the 24th attending the evening mass. The attendees scattered in front of the church tripled in density, but i managed to squeezed myself inside enough for me to see and hear clearly the mass celebration. Standing for straight three hours with almost little or less air is no mean feat,but with the graces of the good Lord, the skills of endurance i have long mastered in my COCC training have resurfaced. When families were asked to kiss and hug their loved ones, i knelt down, closed my eyes and pray for my loved ones who used to be by my side during this time of the year. It was then that i felt a tiny fang of pain.

I welcomed Christmas with a plate of spaghetti my sister Lai gave in late afternoon, a slice of chocolate cake my sister Lei had baked. I haven't touched the leche plan and graham cake both my sisters had given also, it got me too full digesting the thoughts i had in my mind. I missed my dad's call before dinner, got too busy helping out my sister in her bakery. My uncle's been snoring inside the room, too much alcohol intake before i went off to church. I called in the dogs to feast with me with their own plate of spaghetti and few bread slices. How cool it is to spend my Christmas eve with our dogs :)

Despite the never ending stream of Christmas parties and socials i had, the merry making aren't always really merry. Alone in the table, I miss the times we spend Christmas all together. Most families experience this kind of extinction of members, but each has to move on with their own lives, with their own families. The one that is left behind may feast on the leftovers.. leftovers in their less visible form called memories, stored in the refrigerator of the mind and cupcake of the heart.

Lonesome night. Glad to have the moon above me.

"For all those men who believe there’s no reason to buy the cow when you can get the milk for free… Currently 80% of women are against marriage, too, as they have wised up to the fact that for 7 ounces of sausage it’s not worth buying the whole pig."


Don’t miss 2010’s solstice lunar eclipse tonight!

There is a lunar eclipse on December 21. This December solstice eclipse is also the northernmost total lunar eclipse for several centuries.

There won’t be a total lunar eclipse this far north on the sky’s dome until December 21, 2485.

That’s because this eclipse is happening almost simultaneously with the December solstice – which in 2010 occurs on December 21 – when the sun will be southernmost for this year. Remember, a totally eclipsed full moon has to lie exactly opposite the sun. The winter sun rides low to the south now, as it crosses the sky each day. So this December full moon is far to the north on the sky’s dome. It rides high in the sky – much like the June solstice sun.

Remember, it’s the same eclipse – happening in the same magical moments – for all of us.

A total lunar eclipse takes place whenever the moon passes right through the Earth’s dark umbral shadow. This can only happen at full moon, which is when the moon has swung directly opposite the sun in our sky, in its monthly orbit of Earth. During tonight’s total lunar eclipse, the moon will be totally immersed in Earth’s shadow for 72 minutes. A partial eclipse lasting for nearly the same period of time will precede and follow the total eclipse. The entire eclipse from start to finish will last about 3.5 hours.

Lucky sweetie

It's funny to realize that some of my friends whom i haven't seen for quite some time would always ask how my car has been doing instead of asking how life has been treating me.


Poor me,lucky sweetie


Friends are a different breed. They are people you grow up with, people who allow you to discover themselves as you likewise discover yourself; they are people who let you in into their inner spaces, without inhibition, without pretension, and in their stark simplicity, make you feel at home. - Jovi CariƱo

Thanks Sir Jovi, Ate Cel and Lance for the poppycorns.

I feel so terribly remorseful after i found that a cat had been let out in the bag. The cat had been caught in the grapevines primarily due to the public presscon done by a gossiper. If we were in an excel worksheet, a circular reference error would have been flashed. Unfortunately, no error message had occurred, but slander, and verbal and moral torture done by those who in first place did the crime.

Tsk tsk. Office grapevines.

A lot of what comes down the pike is downright false.

Be wary that if you are good in keeping secrets, some people are just not. Including the ones that you trust the most.

wanted: NEW LIFE

Monday, December 13, 2010


It's been a hectic weekend for me as events converge on a second weekend of the last month of the year. I am more than thankful for being blessed with this life extension, able enough to experience joys as well as fatigue for actively participating into different occasions as life's markers.

>Car wash
>Breads pick-up
>Bread delivery to Niel's bday party
>Bread delivery/ Jackie's Birthday Party to Children's Joy Foundation
>Home to pick-up things for tonight's xmas party
>Back to Niel's birthday celebration
>Engineering Department Christmas party

>Baby Bullet's Christening
>Chillax at Nuvali Sbux with Minnette, Honey and Tisha

Off to dreamland at 8pm.

I got so tired of driving almost the whole day of Saturday while being stuck in traffic.

But on a happier note, i am always grateful for God's blessings in the form of two-legged creatures carrying their biggest hearts in their entities. (Are these called FRIENDS? :)) )

Hectic 3rd week is now on its way as i need to see Jona, Annie and Mitch for an early Christmas dinner later after work. Tomorrow is Yna's birthday so i need to work twice as fast tomorrow so we could go out at three. Saturday's the big day for our dearest Sheim, but morning i still need to bring the breads and used clothes to be donated in a gift-giving ceremony my friend Erica had organized.

The Super Heroine me is trying to get some rest in between ^_^

i feel so loved :) Thank you Lord for my wonderful friends :)


It felt good in a morning having talked to a Muslim officemate. I had a nice chat with her over a smooth ride to the office, and the exchange of conversation had somehow filled the minute gaping void i had solemnly kept.

It felt like the entire thirty-minute chat is more than an hour of inspiration. I respect her and her religion with all my might, just as i would to anyone having different religious beliefs. As some points during the conversation, i did feel connected in some ways i couldn't decipher.

Guess I'm missing someone so dearly. And if you are reading this, you know who you are.

Take care because i always do.

The Band Perry

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh oh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She'll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

And I’ll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
I’m as green as the ring on my little cold finger
I’ve never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There’s a boy here in town says he’ll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no I’ll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I’m a goner
And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin’

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh

The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep ‘em in your pocket
Save them for a time when your really gonna need 'em oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls

*last song syndrome*
