disturb by the unruly world,
disturb by my own 
dreams and frustrations,
all i ever wished
is to have 
a peaceful,
of my own...

to read,
to write,
and to once again 
and start
with a clean heart and mind...

Is It Right?

is it right
to show on tv
how housewives fight
over crap at home,
question each other's profession,
how they raise their children,
how they manage their household;
how they interact with their husbands;
as how we see it in
the "real housewives of whatever?"

is it appropriate
to see how chaotic a family is,
how terrible their children are,
ladies or women as we know them,
the way they act,
spend so much money
despite the thought that the world is starving
as how we hear and see
that family "Gaddamitshian"?

is it the best
to show our viewers
especially the children
that fighting back,
and guns
are just like toys?
not mentioning
computer games...

is this the kind
of world we wanna see
in the future?!.....

no wonder
there are a lot of chaos.

God help us!
spare our children from this...

46 years ago
the Lord made 
the biggest wonder for me,
to which I am very thankful!

april 26, 1966
born the person
who have love me
despite my flaws and mistakes
more than I thought
someone could ever do.

Accept the way I am
and never had tried
of changing me.

Supports every dream I have
and keep encouraging me
to do the things he knew I can.
and have guided me since day 1.

A very kind man
who not only welcomed me into his life
but introduced me to his wonderful family
and very kindhearted friends.
I will cherish that day
all the years of my life.

Happy Birthday, JC!

be careful!..

image by Alex Stoddard

it is easier to destroy life
than to create it...

so be careful!..

when you happen to mess it up
it is hard to gather things
and mold it again.

so be careful..

bad situation.
it is hard to get people's support
and understanding
to start all over again.

so be careful...

the worst case is
when you start hating yourself.
and feeling like
you want to self-destruct...

so be careful!..

Pretending to be home doing his laundry
JC showed up surprisingly while
I am doing my grocery shopping.
Never minding the two hours drive
and just a mere two and a half hour time with me
then back home
just to make me happy after being sad
and sick yesterday.
And gave me a beautiful potted plant.
And on his way home sent me this poem:

The Potted Plants

signify our hot,
steamy passion;
Flowering plant,
signify the beauty of our love;
Green leaves,
eminate our healthy strong feelings;
The roots,
to remind us
how well grounded
we need to be;
The soil,
to show us we need
friends and families
to support us our lives through;
The fragile nature,
to keep us mindful of how
we must take tender
loving care
of each other.

Mystery Pal

I know and
I clearly remember
I have prepared enough food
For the two of us
All eaten yet still hungry?

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Oh!.. Spring

oh! Finally spring is here
And may all the cloud disappear
As we prepare our picnic basket
gather altogether and partake it
And enjoy the gorgeous weather.

Jessica Sanchez

once again I am posting
and ask for support
for Miss Jessica Sanchez.
watching American Idol
made me so sad
that she was almost voted out.
after all the wonderful comments,
both from the judges and mentors;
America almost voted her out.
come on Pinoys, who are in the US
let's give a minute or two to help
this young lady get to her dream...
thank you very much!

but no matter what
you surely are a winner to me...

Ang Salubong

("The Meeting")

The Easter morning has always been
a big thing for us Filipinos.
Hopefully up to now.
But for sure, with Roxasians
(our town is called Roxas, 
after the late Pres. Manuel Roxas)
and the parishioners of
St. Isidore, the farmer parish
it is still the best for the easter celebration
after the "Risen Christ!."

Kids are dressed up like angels.
Little boys and little girls alike.
A long month of singing practice
for these so willing innocents.

On the early Sunday morning
the are all ready with 
their angel like white clothes,
their delicately made angel wings,
their angelic voices
continuously singing to wake
the town and
commemorate the
meeting of the risen Christ
and His mother Mary.

The whole town,
Catholics and non-Catholics
get up early at 4 o'clock in the morning 
to witness and
hear these little children sing
and praise the Lord...

the procession will end at the Main Church of the town
where the Easter egg hunting
for the kids ending the morning celebrations.

Happy Easter bloggers!

My Lord and My God

My Lord and My God
Have mercy on us
forgive us our sins
bring us to everlasting life
and help us to live in peace.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

A Home

Don't be fooled
by thinking that
it is the kind of materials,
or be fooled by the size,
or the furnitures and fixtures added.
yes maybe a bit of location.

but surely with no foolishness
The kind of people
who lives in the structure
that makes it
"A Home!"
