SHORTS: Wishful Thinking

“I really should have known better.” I told myself after that hell of a night.   Time flies. I hope memories fly away with them too.   People change. I hope I change that fast as well.   And they forget. I hope I never knew you in the first place.   Four years in…

SHORTS: Isang Tagpo sa UPD

Sa labas ng Plaridel Hall. Habang naghihintay sa ibang kasama.   “O, dito ka pala?! Ano course mo?” “Ah BroadComm ako. Dito rin ate ko, ComRes siya,” ani ng dati kong kaeskwela. “Talaga? Ang galing naman,” sagot ko nang abot tenga ang ngiti. Sa isip-isip ko, “wow, ComRes sa UP! Astig nun! Kami kasi sa…

SHORTS: Kwentong Durog Circa 2010

Meron akong kilala noon na isang freshie, babae (tawagin natin siyang G) na gustong-gusto si Kuya (tawagin natin siyang P), crush kumbaga. Itong si G mas bata kay P ng tatlong taon. Kakatuntong pa lang niya sa kolehiyo tapos etong si P eh pa-graduate na. Sa sobrang pagkahumaling kay P pati yung poster na naglalaman…

SHORTS: Matapos ang Buong Araw ng Trabaho Circa 2013

Nagpapakasubsob sa amoy ng libro. Maya-maya’y nagsa-soundtrip na at sinabayan pa ng pagbabasa ng mga posts sa university page namin (multi-tasking na ito). Hindi ko mapigilang mangiti o kaya’y matawa o kaya naman’y mainis sa samu’t-saring kwento ng mga kapwa ko Iskolar ng Bayan. May ilang paksa na ayoko na sanang isinasapubliko pa doon, pero…

SHORTS: Isang Dapit-hapon Circa 2011

Biglaan lang ang pagkikita namin noong araw na ‘yon. Ayaw ko na nga sanang tumuloy kaso noong babawiin ko na ang pagpayag ko eh nakasakay na siyang MRT patungong Shaw Boulevard. Nauna akong makarating sa lugar ng tagpuan namin – sa Krokodille Grille sa labas ng EDSA ShangriLa Mall, kung saan na rin kami maghahapunan….

I Wish I was Different

“So I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them.”                                         – Charlie (The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky) I’ve been plagued…

Spending My Day in the Metro: A First for 2015

Going to the Metro is quite an event for me since I decided working at home from May of last year. It happened the other day, January 18, 2015 – a first for this year. It’s Sunday. I woke up very early at 6:00 in the morning. I lazed in bed until 6:20. These ‘bed’…

Something Random: Pick One

There are times when you can’t sleep no matter how much you want to. So better use that time wisely. You can spend the night by reading a book, listening to music or by writing or listing something…something random. I did just that. So here’s the result – a dose of my randomness. 1. Books or Boys…

You Who Came from the Stars- A Story Like No Other

Heto na naman ako. Nagsusulat ng kung ano matapos panoorin ang isa na namang Korean drama series, ang You Who Came from the Stars o mas kilala bilang My Love From the Star.  Umikot ang istorya sa buhay nila Cheon Song Yi, isang popular na aktres at modelo sa Korea at Do Min Joon, isang…

Lord, I Turn To You

Right now, I just want to explode because of too much emotional burden. I want to shout out loud and tell the world to shut the hell up. I want to cry and show them I am also seriously wounded. I want to disappear and be in a place where no one else recognize me….
