Caregiver

Talaga nga bang maswerte ako?

Naranasan ko na naman ang panandaliang saya, nang nagkayayaan kami ng mga kaibigan kong manood ng sine. Yan lang ang libangan naming mga OFW, ang maghintay ng bagong pelikula na Tagalog. Mabuti nga, medyo madalas na ngayon ang mga Tagalog na palabas. Kamakailan lang, si Aga Muhlach at si Anne Curtis... maganda pero hindi ako maka-relate, sobrang pangmayaman ang tema ng storya.

Noong Sabado, maganda, si Sharon Cuneta. Ang daming mga eksena na hawig na hawig sa buhay ko, buhay naming mga OFW.

Why Do I Love Thee?

We are always in love. However, do not get me wrong by saying that. I do not only mean it in a romantic way but in general. Love is a mysterious emotion that always confuses us and directs us to ways on how to express what it means. Nevertheless, the truth is we are being in love every day.

A Week of Solitaire

What would you do?

In fifteen days, summer vacation will be over.

My True Love

Have you ever been in love? Did you ever feel that sudden rush of elation and indescribable feeling that makes you smile whenever you think of him? Or you feel like sitting on the soft, fluffy clouds whenever your eyes meet? Yes! I think among all human experiences, nothing can beat the experience of being in love. Even when you were once hurt by it and regret everything about it, still you would say, "it’s all worth every tear." How much more if the experience is filled with so much happiness, that you wouldn’t want it to end, or you want it to last forever...

Of Love and Never Endings

Of all the things that happened in my life, meeting you was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. You gave so much of yourself that I don’t even know why I deserved so much blessing. I thought that you will be my saving grace that I’ve been searching high and low.

Between the Lines

I don't have many pictures of you. I will have to change this so that I have something to show at your wedding.

Betrayal

Honey! Don't forget your briefcase! I screamed down the hallway. I looked around the corner, but Hank had already left. Damn! Now he is going to call home when he gets to the office and berate me on how he forgot his briefcase. I had gotten used to being blamed for his forgetful mind. Oh well. I could feel the steam from the bathroom coming out into the hallway. Shit! I'm going to lose all my hot water!

The Revelation

As I was resting my head on his shoulder, I felt a sense of security that I have never felt since my Dad died. His gentle strokes on my hair sent a feeling of oneness with him... as if he is an integral part of me, the one who completes me.

Legna

War. Lost lives. The fire that tears lovers apart. The flames of war are ablaze once again.

“General --- we are losing men. We need you and your troops ---”

Legna sat on his chair and kept on looking at the window. He was pretending to be serious in listening to the captain’s request for back-up.

“General Legna!”
