A day with friendship and frencherps

I got the chance to chat and bond with two of my favourite persons in the world and talk for like 5 hours non-stop.

We started from simple topics such as work, job hunting, other peoples’ lives, and a whole lot of unimaginable topics one sane mind could never conceive.
But what I really liked out of those seemingly endless topics were “LOVE LIFE” and “A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE: COLLEGE EDITION”.

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE: COLLEGE EDITION
As we sat comfortably and talked about our lives I decided starting a new topic: College life (The Past).
Well, it has always been our wish and also our adviser’s to have a reunion of some sort. But the much awaited get-together seems elusive as of the moment due to the busy schedule of most of the wanef peeps. I just hope that it would be slated sooner than expected.
We laughed and almost cried as we recall some of the highlights of our College days: the overnights we had just to beat the deadline for our system, the memorable Computer week that went from cool to expensive (you know what I mean!), the circle of friends we had back then, the major fights and misunderstanding among our dear classmates, and how things changed after graduation but still we were still friends hanging out together whenever we have the time to spare.

LOVE LIFE
OMG. Kill me now. If you can’t kill me, then do the honor of suing me instead.
If you want to talk about love life or say you want help on that complicated part of your life, don’t ever ask any of my suggestions. Why? 
 1.    I don’t know you.
2.  I don’t talk to strangers.
3. I don’t have a radio show that gives advice to troubled lovers, etc, and afterwards airs a very sensitive/sensual show and talk about raunchy things and stuffs. (I think this show is really irrelevant considering the length of airtime and exposure it has.)
4. I have not been in any relationship yet so I cannot be the best person for the job.

BUT…
I can give the best advice to someone considering I know him/her and we are close.


CONTINUING…
We continued our chitchat and tackled topics such as past relationships, regrets from the past, restraining possibilities, and the same old heart tugging experiences. (Don’t expect me to share a thing or two. I’m just a wallflower watching experienced young adults play their part in the game of love.) And then we tried coaxing a friend into divulging something and finally she bit the bait. I can say that that would be the highlight of our meet-up because that became the trending topic we discussed that day.
After what seemed to be an eternity, we realized that it was already late and the weather is a bit moody, time for our goodbyes. And as I ascended the tricycle which would then take me closer to home I smiled my crooked smile and thought “What a day! I’ll want more of this in the future!”

To friendship and frencherps, thanks for your time, money, effort, the venue, treats, etc. Let’s do this again!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).


If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
