History Revisited
2009-04-12 04:45:00
11 April 2009Tomas MoratoQuezon CityIn a small secluded site in Makati, 13 maharlikas silently gathered around to make an accord, while the downtown Manila was in its usual fashion of making both ends meet. Under the scorching heat of March, they were firm to their resolve to go along the course of feat. Though vision was still hazy, one thing was sure ? they were out to make a difference. Armed with a little knowledge and with a big heart, they started to unleash the limited but extraordinary power they have, under their chain-smoking, yet very able leader.For these maharlikas, failure was never an option; so they worked their ass off to put the glory to the republic they envisioned. Soon, they realised everything was falling into place, even without their erstwhile leader who chose to leave them.The tribe increased exponentially, with the addition of four batches of maharlikas who had similar vision and mission in life. Even if differences cropped up from time to time, the entire ...

With A Smile

05 April 2009Tomas MoratoQuezon CityDear Always Smiling, You greeted us with a smile that was full of hope and verve about a year ago. You flashed it as if it could launch a thousand ships and could materialise every hope we are pining for. Easily, we have gotten carried away, as this was what we were seeking out for two years; a smile that made us to believe would change the fate of our account.This would be the same smile that would definitely painted on your face on Monday, when you would learn that my dear friend for three momentous, historical years would submit his resignation letter. Your sweet smile cannot disprove the fact that you would be celebrating, no matter how you try to appear as a victim of a crime you have actually committed and pulled off.You have always tried to act as an innocent, even if your only purpose is to mess up everything that we have painstakingly built out of our idealism on how to run this industry. You?re a master of looking above suspicion, courte...

Work Stoppage
2009-04-11 13:06:00
o5 April 2009Tomas MoratoQuezon CityTemporarily, I?ve stopped writing. The decision is piercing - I have been craving to weave words for the longest time. It?s like turning back to something that is already within your reach. Or depriving yourself of something you have been hungering after without a break. For a moment, it has caused to break the masochistic surface in me.But the judgment is a necessity, the verdict final. I can?t go on writing without giving fair dealing to words and metaphors and allegories. It?s all about upholding justice to any prose I am carving; it is a matter of integrity.While writing for others is just clacking away vowels and consonants from their keyboards, it is a painstaking and scrupulous piece of art to me. Most of the time, it takes me three hours before I put 30 at the end of every article I write, for I would not stop from poring over word over word until they have complied with my taste. It is a vicious cycle of butchering my brain until it has ...

Why Mike Arroyo is not Jesus Christ
2009-03-16 23:59:00
There's The RubWhy Mike Arroyo is not Jesus Christ By Conrado de QuirosPhilippine Daily Inquirer02/16/2009 HIS enemies want to kill him by making him appear in the Senate hearing in his fragile state, says Mike Arroyo. (Which makes his enemies out to be patriots in the eyes of the public, but that?s another story.) He says further that having been named in one scam after another doesn?t make him monumentally corrupt, it makes him monumentally persecuted. When his wife took on that tack, a congressman ventured to say that his wife was just like Jesus Christ . Without waiting for another congressman to say the same thing about him, I hasten to write this piece. Mike Arroyo is not Jesus Christ because: JC is the Second Person in the Holy Trinity. FG is the First Gentleman in the Unholy Couple. JC?s riches are not of this earth. FG?s riches are out of this world. When JC was born, a bright star shone in the sky, and the Three Wise Men followed it offering gold, frankincense and myrrh to ...

The Day Tyra Arrives
2008-12-07 08:07:00
06 december, 2008 Tomas Morato Amid the queues of party girls out to outdo themselves by applying several layers of make up on their faces already abounding in colours, I am battling with the feeling of unease that has started to creep into my synapses in a sporadic manner. Thanks to two cups of coffee and several sticks of Marlboro which keep on pushing me back to the real world, and which pave the way to the feeling of fulfillment and the sense of satisfaction.Today, December 06, 2008, Tyra has become a dream come true. She is now officially part of the family. Her birth signifies another chapter of my life, which entails a handful of responsibilities.For so long a time, I had dreamt the impossible dream. Tyra had been so elusive. Time and again, I had dismissed the idea of conceiving her. But the longing had been growing, and lurking in the deepest, darkest pits of my mind was the hope that time would come I would be able to finally feel her warmth.But the universe is good to m...

Tomas Morato,18 October 2008I've been itching to write these past days. My blogs have metamorphosed into vacuum they've already developed into a spectre that have been chasing me every now and then, drilling into my head that I've once again broken my pledge not to miss every opportunity to write. I always think that my failure to update my blogs is due to a hectic schedule, a very lame alibi as even before I was born, the time is already stuffed in 24 hours. Probably, this only mirrors my ineffectiveness in managing my time and my tasks.After revisiting some of my friends' blogs, a link steamrolled me into time-capsule. Deprived of strength, I anxiously conceded to the force which was heightened by the backdrop of a bleak Sunday afternoon tainted by the smoke of coffee and cigarette. Here's the article of Kenneth, a friend back in UP days, centered on nostalgia to the highest level. MINSAN, ERASERHEADSNapanaginipan ko sila noong nakaraang linggo. Hindi ko alam kung bakit. Sa p...

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. You have the classic "Type A" personality.You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get work...

first call

21 april 2008makati cityGood thing Ayin was still there. Otherwise, I might have been unable to connect to Saafi and Fernando, who were waiting like a ravenous tiger ready to fall its newly edged teeth to its hapless prey. My emotions flew like a wayward missile. This was my first time to have a call on my own, with me as the facilitator and the clients as devil?s advocates. Not until that call, I thought I could easily weave words to satisfy the ears of the clients. Though I must admit that even with my conviction that is sometimes larger than life, I was still anxious to do it. Before hearing the growl on the other line, I was at a loss I just crossed my legs to pacify my urge to pee. Worst part was that Boss Robi was sitting behind me, which would mean that I could have sermon as my side dish for my breakfast. When I heard Saafi?s voice, I was glad I was able to regain my composure. Thanks for the script and spiels I prepared which proved to be helpful in my presentation. Then th...

tuesday with melon
2008-04-15 23:42:00
16 april 2008makati cityIt is now a week delayed. And it has nothing to do with melon. It?s just I think it would look more poetic and cutie using this title. Anyway, to some extent, it would matter as I just doused the Tuesday afternoon heat wave away with several glasses of melon shake. My Tuesday afternoon was not in its usual boring fashion. I woke up early (in my ordinary days, getting out of bed at 11am is record-breaking) and tried to brush off the cobweb that had been lodging in my gray matter for the longest time. Playing on the background were the early 90?s songs from women-led bands (Hole, the Cranberries, 10,000 Maniacs and Moonpools and Caterpillar), I couldn?t help looking back when I was romantically-attached to everything surrounding me. I was flammable by then, which made me explode and swell at no exact point in time. Songs of grunge bands, Eraserheads and women-led bands encapsulate my mood in my juvenile years ? a tug of war between being angst-ridden and dreamy...

31 december 2007makati cityThis year dawned not with a bang but with a heavy heart. After spending nights gorging on cans of coke and packs of Marlboro over a videoke with friends I?d lost connection to, I was forced to cut down my stay in our province, throwing away my much-anticipated VL into vacuum. From this, I had known that my year was off to a bad start.But it did not turn out as bad as I was expecting. In fact, blessings came after the other, thanks for not being expectant of something I longed for. After going ballistic and running amok for not getting the position I was salivating after, I just shrugged my shoulder and let things go off. Unearth the antagonism that had been harboring in me, and view things in rose-colored glasses. This was so un-me, crediting this transformation to Tina, Ayin and the Vukes who sucked up all my angst during those times.A ?not-so-me? has been very hard to live up. Up to know, remnants of the past continue to hound me, like a specter out to b...

21 December 2007 on the 25th of december this year, this blog will celebrate its one year anniversary. with the sanskrit as the motif, this blog has undergone a lot of changes, akin to the changes this year have brought about. so many things that have happened in this year including my promotion, yet so little time to write them as i've been busy with my work. from time to time, i've got to write some of them, some were worth re-reading, some necessitated intense feeling, some were just plain angst. right now, i can't pinpoint a handful of memorable experience this year has brought to me, not because there weren't but because i can sense that my memory has started to wane. this is what i dreaded the most as my once sharp-edged memory has been my last resort to bounce back or give comeuppance.

With can of Coke squeezed in my right hand and pack of Marlboro sandwich between my fingers, I might be dancing or headbanging or shrieking to the top of my lungs to the tune of the homegrown music of Baler. Thrill has been enveloping me these past days as I am really looking forward to this event. I just realised during one of my sould-searching moments that I have been neglected of social life for quite a long time, after assuming a quality specialist work. It's kinda raw to think that the party-goer/barfly in me has already entered in the face of oblivion. This might be a sign of extinction. Gone are the days when nothing mattered but concerts and gigs. I am now in the phase of "Been there, done that" attitude. However, I may be too fool to let to-die-for concerts pass, but this one I won't definitely miss.

But that did not deter Edita Burgos and kin and friends from marching from Santo Domingo Church to Welcome Rotunda to remind the world of their search for, well, someone they had not seen for the last 100 days. And to remind the world as well that failing to find him, they would not let go until they found the truth about him or found justice for him. By the time they got to Welcome Rotunda, amid the variously blank, sympathetic and hostile stares of the drivers and passengers of cars and jeepneys, the last belonging to those who minded being inconvenienced by traffic as they dragged their bedraggled carcasses to work, the heavens wept copiously.Most of the marchers, who had not brought umbrellas, the skies earlier that day promising a good day, kept on, finding it still a good day to do what they had to do.

Novelist Kurt Vonnegut dies at age 84
2007-04-14 20:47:00
By CHRISTIAN SALAZAR,Associated Press WriterNEW YORK - Kurt Vonnegut , the satirical novelist who captured the absurdity of war and questioned the advances of science in darkly humorous works such as "Slaughterhouse- Five" and "Cat's Cradle," died Wednesday. He was 84. Vonnegut, who often marveled that he had lived so long despite his lifelong smoking habit, had suffered brain injuries after a fall at his Manhattan home weeks ago, said his wife, photographer Jill Krementz.The author of at least 19 novels, many of them best-sellers, as well as dozens of short stories, essays and plays, Vonnegut relished the role of a social critic. He lectured regularly, exhorting audiences to think for themselves and delighting in barbed commentary against the institutions he felt were dehumanizing people."I will say anything to be funny, often in the most horrible situations," Vonnegut, whose watery, heavy-lidded eyes and unruly hair made him seem to be in existential pain, once told a gathering of...
