Super Tatang

Malakas ang ulan. Ngunit umaaraw. May kinakasal na tikbalang. Tumayo ang mga testigo dahil dinemanda ang nanay ng bida dahil sa pagnanakaw ng bagoong kaya sinampal niya ang kaniyang aso dahil kinain niya ito ng hilaw. Nagkamot na lang ng ulo ang aso dahil hindi pa ito naliligo. Humatsing si Tatang. Si Tatang Namoh pala ang bida dito, binata pero meron siyang tatlong anak. Dahil inanakan siya ng tatlong babaeng hindi niya kilala. At ang tatlong anak niya ay inanakan din, kaya siya tinawag na Tatang Namoh.

Tequila Girl

She stands by the bar next to me thinking what she will order next. She is drinking like crazy all-night and she wants something different.

The bartender smiles at her and asks, "What do you want, sweetie?"

Before the bartender come over, she had seen some bottles stocked near the corner where she stands. Now that the bar is busy, she figured she'd try something silly.

The Past

The expectations, the disappointments, the successes, each negatively or positively traumatic, inciting our evolution of spirit in every aspect. I now know the true meaning of the word growing pains. Outgrowing situations and people, exceeding my wildest musings with the realities I encounter.

Bakit Walang Katuturan ang Pagtatalo?

Hindi pa naman huli ang lahat. Baka bukas maaari ko nang kausapin si Teresa. Subalit may agam-agam pa rin sa aking isip kung dapat ko nga ba siyang kausapin pagkatapos ng nangyari.

Networking and Relationship Building

Statistics from the Federal Bureau of Labor indicate that 70 percent of all jobs are found through networking (personal contacts). A mere 15 percent are through a search firm, 10-12 percent through want ads, 4 percent have been found by people creating their own jobs, and 2 percent by blindly sending out resumes. More people are hired by being in the right place at the right time than for any other single reason. But you can't take advantage of that unless you stay in contact with your network. This is the main reason to have a network.

Twisted Thinking

I stood there, outside his room, waiting. With my head bowed down and my eyes shut tightly, I kept on replaying what had happened. Everything that happened.

Andre's Bad Day

The Smiths looked at Andre with disgust. They refused to believe their vicious German Shepard would have ever attempted to take an innocent life. And to offer the remains of their precious Fifi as jerky was despicable.

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.

Juciest

She makes life soothing for me. She shuts the blinds since the sun rears its lazy beginning. She then plays some music on the stereo. She plays with my ears softly while she sings Juciest by Alicia Keys.

Tribute to Venus

My friendship with Venus is like a flower that started as a bud and fully bloomed into a most colorful and beautiful flower worth preserving forever.
