Bakit Sumisigaw ang Taong Galit?


Ito ang usapan ng isang mag-ama habang nakatingin sa larawan na to:

Tatay: Anak alam mo ba kung bakit nagsisigawan ang taong galit kahit magkaharap sila?

Anak: Kasi highblood na po sila

Tatay: Ano pa?

Anak: Kasi nga po galit sila

Tatay: (napangiti sa anak, at sabi nya) Nagsisigawan ang dalawang tao kapag galit kahit magkaharap pa ang mga yan, dahil malayong malayo na ang puso nila sa isat-isa. Malayong-malayo , na pakiramdam nila, hindi ito maririnig ng isat-isa kung hindi nila isisigaw.

Napapansin mo ba ang dalawang magkasintahan pag nag-usap? malumanay lang at mahina, dinig na nila isat-isa... Bakit? Dahil magkalapit ang kanilang puso.

Yung mga bagong kasal, kahit bulungan lang, dinig na dinig nila... Minsan nga titigan lang, nauunawaan na nila isat-isa. Kasi magkadikit ang kanilang mga puso.

Kaya ikaw anak pagdating ng panahon na galit ka lalo sa iyong asawa o kapamilya, makipag-usap ng maayos at masinsinan... Iwasan mong sumigaw, dahil baka dimo mamalayan, sa kasisigaw mo, masyado nang lumayo ang puso nyo sa isat-isa na baka dumating pa ang panahong gusto mong lumapit, pero dimo na sya makita pa....

...nabasa ko lang po sa FB..:) #reblogged...

Difference in Love and Marriage

Nice story. Must read and Share: “Difference in Love and Marriage”…

A student asks a teacher, “What is love?”

The teacher said, 

“in order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.” 

The student went to the field, go thru first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wonders… may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one… But may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him. Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he start to realize that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, he know he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted. So, he ended up went back to the teacher with empty hand. The teacher told him,

“this is love… You keep looking for a better one, but when later you realise, you have already miss the person…” 

“What is marriage then?” the student asked. 

The teacher said,

“in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and
come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."

The student went to the corn field, this time he is careful not to repeat the previous
mistake, when he reach the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he
feel satisfy, and come back to the teacher.

The teacher told him, 

“This time you bring back a corn. You look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get… This is marriage.”

Shane Filan, Solo

Westlife front man Shane Filan is coming to Manila to promote his first EP entitled 'Everything to me'. Save the date Lifers! See you on the 28th! :)

Just for a short background, Westlife called it quits after 14 years of bringing us great music. The lads have now their own life outside the band. 

Shane continued his love for music and this is his first solo EP. Nicky is still active in Television, doing the 'Dance with the Stars'. Kian is a mentor in X-factor UK and for the moment is touring the countryside with her lovely wife Jodi Albert and son Koa. While Mark is having a discreet private life, rumors said that he will also release his solo album. Lifers all over the world hope so! *fingers crossed*

So after 15years of being a true blooded lifer, this is my chance to get up close to a Westlife member. And to see him again after the bands last Manila Concert in 2011.

Hoping to have a close up picture with him! Awww I wanna hug him tight. Finally, after 15years! hahaha :) Even Nicky is my fave lad, I love all of them, and Brian of course. Indeed, it'll be an early Christmas present!

now playing: Everything to me - Shane Filan ♩♪♫ Cause I don't need the sunlight shining on my face And I don't need perfection to have the perfect day I just want to see you happy a smile on your face Nothing else matters cos you're everything to me... to me... to me... You're everything to me.. ♩♪♫

Gun Lae Gun

I found myself singing this song after watching Love for Siam. A Thai film about identity crisis of two childhood guy friends starring Mario Maurer and Witwisit Hiranyawongkul. A great film which mirrors the dilemma of most adolescents. Through their journey, they realized who they really are without affecting their friendship. Watch it, you can relate to it. I'm not saying I had the identity crisis or something. But I do have relatives and friends who in a way took the road, traveled by Tong and Mew.

The song hit me because of its wonderful meaning. I remember someone who wrote me a song. But he is now part of the past. I can hardly remember the song. :D It just brought kilig during that time. And whatever happened to us, we remained friends. Or so I thought? :)

taa bok waa pleng nee dtaeng hai ter ter ja cheua mai

If I said that this song is made for you, would you believe it?
It’s probably not melodious, not affectionate, not beautiful like other songs.
I want you to know that if there’s no love, you can’t write a love song.
But for you, my dear, do you know? I wrote it easily.

You’ve probably heard hundreds and thousands of love songs
that’s probably impressive
but with a similar meaning altogether, but if you listen to this song,
a song that’s written simply for you.

For you to understand the meaning of it, our hearts will then have a connection.
Let it be a song on our pathways that consist only voices of you and me.
Together as long as possible.

As the meaning is told in a poetry that as long as there’s love naturally there’s hope.
Means whenever your love shines through the heart, I have a goal.
There is a lot of facts found in love,
and in the past I used the time for the sake of finding the meaning.

But soon, I’d just know it, whenever you are near me,
That if life’s a rhythm, you are as good as the words that is melodious and touching to the heart.

Let it be a song on our pathways that consist only voices of you and me.
Together as long as possible.
As the meaning is told in a poetry that as long as there’s love naturally there’s hope.
Means whenever your love shines through the heart, I have a goal.

There’s a pathway for us to walk side by side and there are voices of you and me.
There’s a pathway for us to walk side by side and there are voices of you and me.

My Baby's 2nd!

I am thankful... I am Blessed ^_^

When the going gets tough.. the tough gets going! :D

When everything gets rough for me, I always look at this phrases from my cellphone. Reminder that no matter what the difficult situation I'm in, I shouldn't back down.

I am thankful for...

*The taxes I pay because it means that I am employed.

*The clothes that fit a little to snug because it means I have enough to eat.

*My shadow who watches me because it means I am out in the sunshine.

*My neighbor who sings videoke up all night which means that I can hear.

*For my eyes that I can see the beauty of wonderful nature.

*The length of Sales Bridge going to work which means that I can walk.

*For disappointments, that I now knew the things that matters to me most.

*For Baby Nicky who strangles my hair, that no matter how hard my day was, she always makes it to be worth living.

*All the tears that I have cried, which taught me to appreciate laughter and see the joy that comes after.

*For all the storms, knowing that there is a rainbow at the end.

*For the pain, that I have known compassion for suffering.

*For the difficult people, they have shown me who I do not want to be.

*For today and yesterday, to make me look forward for tomorrow.

*The crows of Tatay's roosters in the morning because it means that I am alive.

now playing: More than this - 1D  ♩♪♫ Im broken, do you hear me? Im blinded, cause you are everything I see, Im dancin alone, Im praying,That your heart will just turn around, And as I walk up to your door, My head turns to face the floor, Cause I cant look you in the eyes and say, When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight, It just wont feel right, Cause I can love you more than this, yeah, When he lays you down, I might just die inside, It just dont feel right, Cause I can love you more than this, Can love you more than this ♩♪♫

Midlife Crisis...

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. ”   Walt Disney Company 

Have you ever felt so bored with everything you do? Asking yourself when you wake up in the morning, "I will see them again, I will go to work again... again and again...". Or contemplate before you sleep at night, "Am I at my best today? or What do I really want in life?"

I don't know what is this called. But is this midlife crisis? According to google, midlife crisis is a cause of transition, menopause or andropause stage, death of someone dear, realizing that the career is unfit, or any significant changes in the core aspect or life. For more info, please tick here.

Well, I guess what I feel is really midlife crisis! But hey, I'm not yet menopausal! I just wanted to do something different. I don't like what I'm doing now. Please don't get me wrong though. I am very grateful and forever will be thankful for what I have. For what I have experienced, for my family, my work and my accomplishments. But why do I feel this? There's something missing and I can't figure it out. :(

Hay, I have been battling with myself. I want to go to the mountains and teach the indigenous people. I want to do something I haven't done before. The thought of it is so liberating. But how can I do that? Who wills support my finances? That is the very thing that hinders me from quitting my job. I don't have enough savings. If all is well with my pocket, I don't think I would be writing this down. *sigh*

now playing: Please don't say you love me - Gabrielle Aplin ♩♪♫Just please don't say you love me 'Cause I might not say it back Doesn't mean my heart stops skipping when you look at me like that There's no need to worry when you see just where we're at Just please don't say you love me 'Cause I might not say it back ♩♪♫

Isla de Gigantes

"At the beach, life passes differently. Time doesn't pass by hours but by moments and moods. On the beach, we live following the current, organized by the tides and head towards the sun...." - Unknown
Last holy week, I saw a magnificent pic in my FB newsfeed and I said to myself that I will go there. But my yearning didn’t last long. A friend asked me to accompany her in her soon to be better half’s province in Dumarao, Capiz. I was hesitant at first. I was like, Capiz?  Chaperon? Seriously? Urban legends and the tales about the province of Capiz springs an eerie feeling. Since I have a strong hold of my faith, I gave it a go. I hope to bump with Juan de la Cruz with his Bakal na Krus just in case I needed him. Haha! Yun Oh!

The night before our flight to Iloilo, Lanie told me that we need to abort our plan to visit Gigantes Islands. It was because the elders believed that Estancia is a hot-spot during elections. There’s nothing I can do anyway, so I conceded. I just told them to just research for some other beaches like Guimaras or the Agho Island in Conception.

An article of my Capiz trip will be posted separately. Meanwhile, here’s my Isla de Gigantes experience.

So the election day has ended and they said that Guimaras is far from Dumarao. They decided that we go to Gigantes Island instead. And I think that’s final. My ears clapped and my heart leaped! Haha!! I already set my mind that I won’t be seeing the beautiful island. I was in emo mode for the past days telling myself that I can’t have everything even if the thing I wanted is just right in front of me, within my reach. I must be a good girl then. Yey!

We took the option of taking the Ceres bus bound to Estancia from Sara, Iloilo than to go back to Tagbak Terminal which is around 3Hours travel. For the 2d/1n trip, we left Dumarao around 8am of 14th May 2013 to Sara which was 1Hour motorbike ride.

A bright sunny day full of positive vibes, that even an hour of motorbike ride, river crossing and 2.5Hours boat ride can’t wipe out the smile on my face. Lanie contacted Mr. Joel Decano, the tourism officer in Carles, Iloilo, who provides assistance and tour packages in the island.

The package that he gave us was super worth it even if we wasn’t able to see all the 6 islands. Ian, our very accommodating guide started our tour at 3PM and we only managed to see the 4 islands since we have limited time.

Dazzling white sand islands struck us. Similar to Caramoan, but Gigantes have their unique beauty that no one can resist. Enchanting, magnificent, outstanding! I can’t say anything more but I wish you could see and experience it yourself. If you want to see the islands, I suggest you plan a 3d/2n trip (the least). Activities includes island hopping, spelunking in Bakwitan Cave and the North Gigantes Lighthouse viewing.

Live... Love... Laugh...

"Happiness is the settling of
the  soul into its most

Just the smell of the summer makes
me fall in love! ayiiieeehhh!

with friends...
"I just want to live a life without worries.
Where I can be me without fear of being judged.
I want to let go of the past, live the present
and dream of the future..."
Never ignore someone who loves you... likey!
I wish to do the things
I am always afraid of...

just another day in paradise,
 where every hour is happy!!
