Simple Things

Found this witty quote in a bookstore:

” I enjoy simple things in life…..LIKE MEN”

This really cracked me up!


The L Word

How can some people use the word “love” so loosely. Like it’s a common phrase that you can say to every Tom, Dick and Harry. Mindless that they treat it as a casual remark to somebody in front of the cashier’s counter, or even to the person sitting next to you in a commuter train.

You don’t write it on a piece of scratch paper, more so on a post-it note.

You don’t put a smiley or an exclamation point on it, nor in a hurried, informal handwriting.

It’s not casually handed over to a messenger.

You don’t address it to somebody whom you have a past some 18 years ago. More so if you’ve just reconnected and is trying to build a genuine friendship inspite of.

More importantly, you don’t dare write it to somebody else other than your wife.

For freakin’ goodness sake, stop playing games already.

30 Seconds

I froze as I saw his name flashing on my screen.  His sentences are like a blabber to me. No, nothing much registered except that he’s busy.

He seemed to talk endlessly. While with great effort, I tried not to sound bereft of speech. But his words outnumbered mine.

Then he hung up. Andit felt like there’s a sting running from my head down to my feet.

I just realized how all those years can easily come back in just 30 seconds.

30 freakin’ seconds.


Para kang palitaw…lulubog, lilitaw.

Para kang bula, na bigla na lang mawawala. 

Para kang hangin na di mapukaw sa tingin. 

Para kang payaso na minsan nakangiti, minsan nakanguso.

Ano ba talaga ang papel mo sa buhay ko? 

Dadating ka ng wala sa panahon, at

bigla na lang maglalaho kung kelan mo gusto.

Tama na. Ayoko na.  Isa kang palaisipan.

Hindi ako ipinanganak para maging pangalawa sa buhay mo. 

Dahil kung tutuusin, wala kang papel sa mundo ko.
