moody monday: colorful
2009-05-12 12:03:00
who would blame me for loving the color blue?took this photo last month in one of the hidden gems of subic. club morocco.tho this gem needs a little polishing and the management is clearly doing something about it. if you've been there, you wouldnt mind seeing those ships and cargos parked by the distance as long as you stay in the pool.alas! it would have been lovelier if i spent the sunset strolling by the beach with you*.* ---note: long awaited entry for moody monday

?Wait ing is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.? - Paulo Coelhoto those who kept on returning and checking on this blog, thank you.i have been in hiatus for months but it doesn't mean i have forgotten this place. it doesn't mean that i will stop painting, drawing, taking photos and writing poems. some of these were indeed placed on hold for a while, while i wait for time to stop. sometimes i wish to hold time and wish a day to never end. sometimes i wish time could move fast forward to that day, that day which i wish to not end. but these only happens in dreams and some dreams seemed reality. while reality sometimes seemsto be dreams.since the time i have gone, i've been to places where i wish to never leave. and soon as i got back i look back and my memories feel like everything was just a dream. my only proof for myself are the photos i have taken, and the memories that kept on running over and over in my head. i do not f...

String: Blog Action Day 2008
2008-10-14 18:00:00
Today marks the day of a special event in the history of the blogworld. The purpose of Blog Action Day is to create a discussion. Bloggers are asked to take a single day out of their schedule and focus it on an important issue. Last year's topic was The Environment. This year we focus on the mammoth issue of global Poverty.Growing up, we were taught that we live in a third world country. And there are limits to what we can do and what we can get. I've always been a big dreamer when I was young and I always wanted to prove the grown ups wrong that we can only do as much. I also used to be a strong believer with the statement Kung hindi ka kikilos ngayon, kelan pa? ("If you won't act now, then when?")Here are the facts:The map of the world with classifications:First (blue), Second (red), and the Third World (green) countries during the Cold War era. Does not necessarily represent a current world view.But according to the list of third world countries, the Philippines is not include...

and im floating with strings of thoughts and dreams..back in 2004.. when i first started blogging.. here's one of the thoughts i randomly scribbled down.. half awake half intoxicated.. consumed in escaping and dreaming.."I have a bad hobby. And its driving me nuts. When I do it, I think about impossible possibilities miles away beyond my reach. This is a sin and im not ashamed to look practically pathetic and plainly stupid. Im tired of writing sexual fantasies and sending them to the person most important to me. not because I wouldn?t like any in reality, but because the more I think about it, the more I desperately want to search for him. My bad hobby brought me to the end of my rope to leap into the shallowness of my mind. And without strings attached I jumped in and dove in deeper. Without thinking. Just feeling. Forcing myself further, with no assurance of my return. This bad hobby, as may be unsounded to others, brings me to satisfaction, intellectually, spiritually; and givi...

to avoid a jam-packed holiday vacation.... go in November!i actually find this painting funny! this is my first attempt in watercolor, ha! isay knows this.. and you may find familiar landmarks here..hehe.. although its a mix of different beaches in the Philippines.. nonetheless let me give travelers out there a tip. if you want some peace and quiet on your vacation, go here during the lean season. some locations classify them during June to December 15 and peak seasons are Dec.16 to summer. (this part of the world tho, our summer is April and May). prices are cheaper.. hotel+airfare. can you imagine i was able to see a flight to somewhere in the south (i wont tell yet) from manila, which costs only about 1,600 per person!? to convert, 34 euros or $37 USD. And this is two-way! and some may say.. "that's peanuts!" lol..sorry moogie.. *.* i just had to tell!, can anyone guess where this is?----my dream vacation5" x 8" (orig.)watercolor + liquid paper

ring around the rosies820 x 620 (orig.)MS Painti remember when i used to play with the kids on our block.. how we play for hours after school, on weekends and whenever classes are suspended.. it doesn't matter if it rains or not. one of my favorite game was patintero (a traditional game where one team will all be "it" and would only step on the lines on our street while the other team should run fast and pass all the "its" and reach from one side to the other without being tagged by the "its").we also used to play ring around the rosies, chinese garters and pretend restaurants or "house" (bahay-bahayan). in this game, we act like grown ups where our "food" are actually just leaves and twigs and stones.. somebody will play as a mom, a dad and the kids. i almost always wanted to be the mom because i used to be fond of collecting plastic utensils and plates and pack them all in a big box. thus the toys are mine so i wanted to be the one to take care of them.then i reached 10 and being...

i guess im still old fashioned coz i like to be surprised on my birthday with a party, with cakes and ice cream, and balloons(?) ha! but i wouldnt have guessed that the longest birthday and most surprises i'll have is on my 28th!it started last saturday when some of my colleagues and friends went to my house unexpectedly and drank our heart outs while watching some DVDs.then i wished for more time to rest and poof! a long weekend came to me for the first 2 working days of the week was a holiday and we had no work. wednesday, a typhoon came and classes were suspended. and in the tropical country where i live, a rainy afternoon is the perfect climate to make the most insomniac of insomniacs sleep soundly. imagine the buzzing of constant wind and water showering your roof silencing the noisy neighbors as its the perfect ingredient for immunity to their sound.. plus add the cold shivers that disintegrates the hot weather, blocking the sun's hot rays to pierce your window curtains. wha...

There is no rough road that can stop us.Mover and ShakerHe walked a journey that flattened the landswith a frivolous continuality    and an upending stance --    Let me paint you from within    and fill the drifting shapes of empty dreams    A reddening twilight that touched the sea    in shades where blackbirds wake the dawnHe swept aside a thousand pathways there'til darkness in dusk were all goneStaring to the radiance of what's to comeHe sank into the clouds, he then floatStill into the echoes he sailed the windErasing all doubts and soulless criesMadness aflamed began to fly awayHe brought rest to give strength to rise.-----note: sorry if this is a repost from an old entry for a defunct b&w challenge group.. i havent written any poems in a while.. and this one that i wrote more than two years ago just brings back memories..

in memory of a friend

I can't stop crying today at a loss of a dear friend. And I didn't knew sooner..Even though I met Deity from online, she is one of the few whom I trust with my non-anonymous life. And in keeping some things private, let's just say, we have so much in common, and one is we both maintain a long distance relationship with a loved one. So in so many ways, I feel her pain. But I couldn't bear to imagine what she feels now especially when she heard the news about Chaos. And I, am still but at a loss for words.All I can say is, if it were me in her shoes, I can't imagine how I'd live my life.Dear friends, Please take a moment to pray for the soul of a dearly departed, a fellow blogger, poet, artist and friend... Curtis aka Chaos. And for Deity, that her wounds may heal soon..Deity, we are all here for you. I do pray that you can move on, and live the way Chaos would want you to live and love life.---note: please visit The Wandering Deity's Worlds.. Blogger | Multiplypub-707908068407...
