Home!

Home
Michael Buble

Another summer day
Is come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
Mmmmmmmm

Maybe surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aerorplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
But this was not your dream
But you always believe in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
And even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
Oh, let go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home


Being away from my "sinilangang bayan", this song really reminds me of how good it is to be with your family and the people you used to grow up with.

Home.

It's the place where you feel accepted no matter what happens. This is where people around you will never fail to love and understand your needs. This is also where you ran to on times that you feel the whole world turns away from you.

Home.

Your refuge. It's the place where you draw your strength from. A place which offers us comfort and a sense of security. The place where you first felt happiness and care.

Home.

It's where you learned the sense of having a family and a friend. It's where everyone understands each other in spite of struggles in life.

Home.

It's my mother, father and sibblings. It's my titos and titas i see every sunday. It is my room who provided me a sanctuary for the times that i feel bad about myself. It's my friends who never fails to facinate me. It's seph who has always been there for me.

A famous line says "Home is where my heart is". I agree. Home is really where i leave my heart to grow and be nourished with love and affection from people around me.


That is my home. I am coming back home today.Align Left

Reliving the Glorious Days

Free writing.. :)

College.. Freshman days..

naglalakad ako papuntang hallway, kinausap ako ni ate monette of bayan youth. she wanted me to run for the CSC under their banner. ako naman dahil binalak ko talagang tumakbo ng student council, excited. mega kwento ako sa high school friends ko at pumirma ako ng COC with them. Then i talked to russel. he's running for student council din under KAYABE. I was shocked. that was the first time i ever heard of the party. KAYABE.. hmmm.. Rus'l invited me to talk to "matwang ramil". I even thought he's really old that time. we went to the USC office and ramil told me so much about the party.. KAYABE. Kanlungan at Yaman ng Bawat Estudyante. I agreed to pull out my COC with bayan youth and run for their party. Then, i met a family...

First meeting, Museo ning angeles...

I was introduced to people running for KAYABE that time. I was also intoduced to people working behind the party that time. Nakakatuwa silang tignan noon.. sobrang close, sobrang palagay ang loob ng bawat isa. eto yung mga taong "may sinabi" sa school, di sila basta basta. But when you get to talk to them, parang matagal na kayong friends. hindi ka maiilang. hindi ka magdadalawang isip na kausapin sila. It really felt good that time. I was welcomed with both hands.

Initiation Rites....

Porac, Babo robot. July yun, sobrang init. Whole day kaming binilad sa araw. First time kong maramdaman na pinapahirapan ako.

Isang Bote ng mineral water for the whole team (8 members) for the whole day.

maglakad ng nakayapak ng 12noon sa lupa ng porac na puro buhangin.

humiga sa buhanginan, magkalkal ng burak para maghanap ng piso na itinago daw nila (test of patience daw)

umiyak ng umiyak dahil sa pagkkwento ng buhay mo sa mga taong halos di mo kilala.

Dun ko unang naranasan ang sobrang uhaw. Dun ko rin naranasan na i-give up and tubig na para sayo dahil mas kailangan ito ng groupmate mo. Dun ko naranasan na ipamigay ang pagkain na isusubo mo na sa bibig mo.

Dun ko naranasan na bigyang halaga ang feelings ng mga tao sa paligid ko. DUn ko natutunan kung gano kahalaga ang pakiramdaman ang pangangailangan ng mga tao sa paligid mo.

Dun ko natutunan kung paano magmahal ang isang pinuno. Dun ko natutunan na mahalin ang KAYABE kahit anong mangyari.


CSC-CAS 2004-2005 | USC 2005-2006...

We were elected. challenge na matatawag ang pagpasok ko sa council ng mga panahong iyon. Una, nagmmaintain ako ng scholarship. Bawal bumaba ng 2 ang grades ko. dapat 1.75 ang average ko. Pangalawa, kailangan ko patunayan sa scholarships and grants na kaya ko pagsabayin ang pagiging student council at ang pagpasok sa dean's list at ang paghawak sa mga org na sinalihan ko. Mahirap. Nakakapagod. Pero kinaya ko. Kailangan kong kayanin. 3 oras na tulog araw araw ok na ako. Magsasabay pa ang college days at term papers na kailagan kong ipass. May presentation kami kasabay ng meeting with the student affairs dean. May play kaming pnprepare kasabay ng pagaayos sa University days. Pero di kami pinabayaan ng KAYABE. Lagi silang nandyan para tumulong. hindi kami iniwan sa ere. Salamat


Hanggang ngayon ay kadugtong ng buhay ko ang kayabe. Yung mga close friends ko, nameet ko sa KAYABE. Ang ate ko sa bahay, KAYABE ko din nakilala. Nakapasok ako sa trabaho ng dahil sa mga natutunan ko sa KAYABE.

malaki ang utang ko sa KAYABE. dahil sa kanina, natutunan kong harapin ang buhay, natutunan kong magpahalaga sa kapwa at natutunan kong mahalin ang mga taOng nasa tabi ko ano man ang mangyari.


KAYABE, mabuhay ka!

"There's no affect" *&%#()$*#^

I was seriously reading blogs last week when someone at the other side of the room said angrily

"there is no affect"
(customer answers)
"no sir, there is no affect"
(customer answers)
"sir, your website will not be affected at all. I just said there is no affect"

Imagine-in nyo yung pagkawindang ko when i heard the rant. Para akong na-transport sa ibang universe at hindi ko naiintindihan ang language na ginagamit. Cartwheel moment si kuya (ate yata, he's gay i think.)

Fine! Bago lang si kuya sa company..

Fine! Slip of the tongue lang yun which i doubt kasi lagi ko syang naririnig na bangenge ang grammar..

Fine! He still needs practice...

Ang di ko lang maintindihan, bakit tinanggap sya ng company na ganun ang grammar and diction nya. Hindi ko matanggap na ang mga friends ko na sobrang astig kung magsalita, bumagsak sa final interview. Hindi ko maintindihan sa HR kung bakit sila naghhire ng ganun ganun nalang..

Recently, I've learned that HR is working with quota everyday. They need to hire a certain number of people on a given week. So, anong ibig sabihin? Nag-apply ba si kuya on a Friday at sobrang kulang na ang ihhire kaya sya nalang? Wala na bang choice kasi nahire na ng ibang company yung mga applicants?

Don't get me wrong. I am not a snub or what. I just don't understand why people who deserves to get the job loses the opportunity to those people na kng tutuusin e pwede mo nang sabihan na bumalik sa school at mag-aral ulit.

Again, hindi ko sila minamaliit. Alam ko meron room for improvement ang mga taong ito. Alam ko na they just need more time to cope up with work and practice speaking with americans. Alam ko na pag natataranta na ang ibang tao, nawawala na ang pinagaralang correct usage of words, subject and verb agreement at sentence construction. Pero my gulay! Sana naman makitaan si kuya ng effort..

Hindi lang iisang beses ko naringgan si kuya ng ganyan. Marami pa.. Maraming-marami pa na pag kinwento ko pa dito ay baka bukas ko na mapost ang blog ko..

Sana, wag na magtipid ang company sa communications training!

Perfect?!

Perfect World.. Will we ever live to see one? I don't think so...

I was with Seph one Sunday at Makati Cinema Square Booksale searching for a good read when a fat white man approached me. He asked me if the author of the book I was holding was good. I told him i find some of the books not too good but the last one i read which was "Up Country" catched my attention. I was holding Demille's book, "Night Fall", and was looking for another book to buy. Being a good person I was, I entertained the man's questions. Here is how the conversation went:

PiggyMan: Is the author of that book good?
Me: I find some of his works boring but the last one i read was good. It was about Vietnam Veterans and a murder.
PiggyMan: Do they still have that book here?
Me: I don't think I saw one today. But at that shelf there are 2 books written by the author. You could check them out
PiggyMan: COULD YOU JUST GET IT FROM ME?!


I was like WOW! This man ordered me around. But still being a good Samaritan, I went to the shelf Seph was checking and asked him to hand me Demille's books. I went back to the man and gave him the books. Then, he left without saying thank you. I was so infuriated by what he did.

I started blabbering about him having the nerve to order me around like I was in his payroll when a staff approached me. He asked me, "Ma'am, kilala po ba ninyo yun?" (ma'am, do you know that guy?). I told him that I don't know the guy and was trash talking about how he ordered me around. The staff told me that the guy is the owner of the building, Makati Cinema Square. Damn him! That was when everything about the Christmas before came back to me.

We were buying stuff @ MCS's Grocery when we heard a man speaking over the CS line at the mall. He said, "You people over the gift section, bakit ang gulo ng pwesto nyo?! kung hindi nyo aayusin yan pronto, you can go to babuyan island for all i care". The hell! You never should treat your employees like that. Never was I treated that way in a public place that is! And to think the "mall" he owns is not even a good place to do business. Darn the man!

Perfect world? Nah.. I don't think we'll ever have one as long as people like Mr. Piggy exist. Throw him to hell like all people as bad as he is then maybe... MAYBE, we can have a perfect world...

not again!

wow..
nice..
new site to host my blogs..

I think this is my fifth blog site since i started. I keep changing names, changing sites and changing urls for my blogs.

I intend to keep this for good.. will import some of my old blogs here.. I'll keep you posted!
