Halo-Halo Martial Arts

Isang araw, tinuturuan ni Lolo Pogi ang kaniyang apo na si Bogart upang matuto ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts.

Lolo Pogi: "Apo, kailangang matuto ka nitong Halo-Halo Martial Arts upang matuto ka ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts. Apir!"

Bogart: "E, Lolo Pogi, bakit po ako kailangan matuto ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts?"

Lolo Pogi: "Errr, para matuto ka ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts, kailangan matutunan mo ang Halo-Halo Martial Arts. Apir!"

Bogart: "Ganon po ba? Sige po, Lolo."

Lolo Pogi: "Apir ulet!"

Cataract

I have become the suggestion of a stranger... the invited intruder.

Where is the phantom entrance to somebody’s somewhere?

I am fading from view.

I am nothing but a flicker.

I am nothing but a speck of dust, floating and shimmering in the air.

I am in the middle of it all just like you.

The Adverse Result of Multitasking

"EEEEYYYUUUTTT!!!"

Loud and crisp!

I pressed SEND then off it went straight to... guess where?

My boss’s YM window!

@#$%... Panic... Panic!

Undo! Undo!

Oops!

YMs don’t have UNDO button. I wanted to call the Yahoo! Hotline and scream. "Please add UNDO button now!"

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!

Raindrop Moments

She smiles with her dreamy eyes.

"I love the rain."

"Even when it makes the power fail?"

He asks as he wipes a raindrop off her nose.

Whispers of Fate

Embrace me as I come near you.
O sweetest refuge of mine,
You are my comfort when I am in deep sorrow.
Welcome me now with your warmth,
For I chose to lay beneath you forever...

"Mom, Father Dominguez called to tell you that the prayer meeting is about to start."

"Really? I think I better go now."

That’s my Mom, very Catholic and pious.

Lumalamig na naman ang ihip ng hangin sa disyerto. Taglamig na naman...

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.

What would you do?

In fifteen days, summer vacation will be over.
