Sentiments of an unregistered voter posted at 9:03 PM
I have a confession to make. And probably it’s very obvious in the title of this blog post already.
I’M 20 YEARS OLD AND I’M NOT A REGISTERED VOTER.
I did not emphasize that statement because I'm proud. I put much stress on it because it is such a bittersweet fact. I was unable to register for this year’s election. It was entirely my fault. School became too much to handle and there was just too much going on especially during the last month of voters’ registration. I'm an unregistered voter not because of complacency. So please don't tell me I'm an irresponsible citizen of the country because I know well how much I want to vote.
The reason why I'm blogging about this is not to tell you that the national election isn't important so don't get registered. I'm posting my sentiments because the national election is an important and serious matter and I regret being unregistered. For years now, "Vote wisely!" has been the undying echo of people around the world most especially during elections (whether it be small or large scale.) People go on and tell others how wisely they would vote, but when "unexpected circumstances" come, they forget what "wisely" means.
I have no plans of meddling with government politics. Yes, I used to be the campaign manager (for two consecutive years) of my political party in our university, but I believe that what's outside the university is not for me. I may go on and kid around how I want to experience being a real campaign manager. Real in the sense that you do it for actual candidates. You know, government official candidates. But I don't want to be involved in what has been tagged one of the "dirtiest" ever. No, I am not trying to defame my own country. No, I am not trying to solicit any attention with this blog post. No, this isn't for anyone. This is for me. I'm posting this because I want to express what my sentiments are with this year's election.
I admit not being really that updated when it comes to the candidates. And again, let me point this out, not because of complacency. Because I know that ranting (if ever) what I hear about and know about each candidate won't help. Scour through my different social network accounts and you won't find anything against or for each candidate. I choose not to comment in anyway about each candidate I don't personally know. I mean, ranting about how I hate their jingles or how cliches their platforms are won't change a thing. And I know keeping mum about something may most of the time mean complacency, but again, let me point this out, it is not because of complacency.
For the registered voters, I think you know better. No, let me rephrase that, I think you should know better. I just don't see the point in voting for someone who bought your vote, and then complain that there is no evident progress in your place or country. I don't see the point in complaining, ranting or posting what your negative sentiments against a certain candidate(/s) just because he/she has no enough credentials. I don't see the point in badmouthing someone for his/her flaws and shortcomings. There is always a proper way to express something. There will always be a group of right words to say something although truth be told, most of the time, they are hard to find. But I firmly believe in CREDIBILITY over charms and credentials. Just because someone looks good, doesn't mean he/she should win. Just because his achievements could be listed in a thousand pages, doesn't mean he/she should win. We should look deep within each candidate what their plans and motives are for running.
We should read between the lines and not let ourselves be blinded with sugar-coated words and promises. We should keenly observe how these people live both in private and public places. We should strive to be informed of things that these candidates have done, what they really want to happen and why they chose to run in a certain position. It is our responsibility to vote. You may say that your vote doesn't actually count with the millions of registered voters the country has. But let me tell you, you won't really see the importance of one vote, you won't know it's value, you won't know how crucial one vote is, until you've actually experienced it. I tell you, I know someone who lost because of one, just one vote, who people thought was not important because they were too caught up with their personal lives. He lost because of one vote, just one vote, and I believe he still deserves the position over the other one who won because of a toss coin. If you are a registered voter, do your part. Don't let yourself be named among those people who chose not to vote because they were too lazy to wake up early in the morning, who chose not to vote because they were too impatient to wait for the line to move on so they could shade the circles in the ballots, who chose not to vote because they just felt it and who chose not to vote because for them, it's useless.
For the candidates, I have only one thing to say. Please watch Bayan Ko. All six episodes of Bayan Ko. Why? Because Mayor Joseph Santiago is an example of an ideal leader. Not that I am saying that you should do EVERYTHING he did in the series. But what I admire most about Mayor Santiago's character is how he actually put to life the quote "Be the change you want to see in this world." He started with himself no matter how small or big his actions are. He wasn't selfish, he was selfless. He really made sure that everything was done in the right way, and if you would watch the series episode by episode, you will evidently see how he affected others in a positive way. They were encouraged to do good instead of doing "tradition". He wasn't afraid to fight for the truth. He was very firm with everything that he doesn't mind how much threat was in his life because of striving to do good.
You may tell me that Mayor Santiago is just a fictional character. That his being a mayor in Sibil is nothing but a figment of imagination because in the real world, that's impossible. Go on, tell me everything you want to say about me being an idealist. But I stand firm on my belief that idealism is not wrong as long as people can make it into a reality. It's not hard to reach for the stars because the moon itself has been reached already. I say that it's not impossible to have a leader like him. I bet there would be more progress soon if each barangay, province and region have their own Mayor Santiago. Not that I am saying that we have no progress today, but some people don't even feel the development in the the different aspects of our country. I hope that the platforms laid out in every campaign will not be mere words but will be transformed into actions should they be elected.
I purposely posted this five days before the election. Had I been able to register, I think this post would have been something else. Had I been able to register, I know that on May 13, I'll be doing my responsibility. But I wasn't able to. And because I wasn't able to doesn't necessarily mean that I don't have something to say. I hope that the previous years have taught us(especially the registered voters) lessons very well on how to select the rightful candidates for the position.
With all this said, with all my sentiments laid out, let me leave you with a quote from Sir Winston Churchill:
“A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen."
I hope we have this kind of politicians as soon as voting is done on May 13. Vote wisely. One vote can affect not only your life but the lives of others. Cheerios! x

All the way from China! posted at 2:23 AM
It's May already! And boy did April pass by so fast. This post is actually way overdue since I received the package last month. But then again, better late than never, right? :)
I was surprised when I came home to a package on my table. I was stoked since I was really expecting a parcel that time (from another contest I won online) but it was something else. It actually took me five minutes or more before I opened it up since I really examined it.
I hurriedly open the package and found this paperbag inside! I felt really good upon seeing this. I was already trying to picture out what the pen and bookmark would look like.
And voila! My own blue and white porcelain pen and bookmark! I fell inlove with the pen as soon as I took hold of it. Writer instinct, I guess. :) I gave the bookmark to my Mumma since I have a lot of bookmarks I could use if ever I'll be reading a new book.
Thank you, LookChem, for the wonderful gift! May you have more connections in the Philippines!
These I believe. posted at 6:05 PM
I believe in a lot of things. You call a person who believes in God a theist. You call a person who believes in a higher power an agnostic. But what do you call a person who strongly believes in many things?
I believe in God. I believe in His existence. I believe that He created the world. I believe that He made man in His own image and likeness. I believe He listens to every prayer, He comforts every sorrow-stricken soul and He blesses us with both wants and needs as long as it is according to His plan. I believe God allows people to walk in and out of our lives for a reason, or even reasons. I believe He has planned out everything beautifully though at times it may break our hearts. I believe He has been there, He still is there and He will always be there throughout life's ups and downs. If there is one thing I believe in that I definitely won't give up, it is that I know my God is true, no matter how other people try to tell me that He isn't. I know for sure He is real, the Bible tells me so and I've felt Him work in my life for countless number of times.
I believe in love. While I acknowledge it as a feeling, I strongly believe it is still a choice. I believe people fall in and out of love as a feeling and as a choice. I believe it can change, make or break a person's perspectives and how he/she decides to go on with his/her life. I believe love can soften the hardest heart, and make the most loving heart numb. Love doesn't necessarily make the world go round. It just makes you feel and believe that way. Love can cause people to be happy and sad, angry and insane. Love can even make people go crazy. I believe that unrequited love is the hardest, and unconditional love, the best. There are different kinds of love that the books and people tell us. But you'll never know what the difference(s) is(/are) in each kind of love if you've never felt it. I strongly believe that one day, you'll wake up next to one person and realize why it never actually worked out with anyone else.
I believe in change. I believe pain changes people voluntarily and involuntarily. I believe that change is necessary for a person as long as he lives. It depends upon him/her if he/she wants to change for the better or for the worse. Change, in cliche, is the only constant thing in this world. Isn't it ironic? That the only thing constant, the only permanent thing in this world, is something that is not constant on it's own? Do you even wonder how many sheets of paper a person wastes in his/her entire lifetime trying to draft or write his/her New Year's resolutions every year (that are actually good for the whole month of January till the first weeks of February)? Like for example, how many times has a person thought of what he/she needs to change so that people won't hate him/her, or so that he/she could carry out his/her changed perspectives, beliefs and principles? How many minutes, hours, days, weeks or even years does a person spend collectively throughout his/her lifetime considering what to change in his/her life just so he/she could adapt to the inconsistent world and times? Change defines what we went through and who or what we want to be. And I believe, that no person has died, dies, or will ever die without undergoing change. Voluntarily and involuntarily.
I believe in happiness. I believe that people shouldn't rely their happiness on things so temporary and unsure so as to avoid pain and the difficulty of letting it go. I believe that if you purposely chase your happiness, it will be harder to obtain. Believe me, I've been through this road more often than I actually wanted, telling myself that maybe this time, the new story won't be like the old ones. But life happens, and they end up all the same - leaving me hurt, bruised or broken. But what makes me proud about all the pain I have experienced while trying to run after happiness is the mere fact that despite all of it, I learned. It led me to believe that true happiness is in God. It comes from Him. If it's not from Him, it won't be for long. As common as this line may be but I'll say it anyway, "Let go, let God." It's okay to pursue things as long as you don't exhaust all your God-given time, talents and efforts just for one thing or person. I believe that God's plan for everyone is to be happy. But people blame God for everything that's wrong in their life and never appreciate the beauty of correction. Sometimes rejection is God's redirection. People made it too complicated though, that's why some people die in misery.
I believe in both the good and the bad. The positive and the negative. The problems and the solutions. The questions and the answers. The laughter and the tears. Why did I mention these words together and not alone? It's because I firmly believe that you will never appreciate the good(in whatever aspect) had there been no opposite of that certain thing, emotion or event. Let me ask you this, had God only given us blessings and no corrections at all, would we still look up to Him in prayer? Had our friends only made us laugh but not cry, would our friendship be as strong as it is now? Had we not been given problems, would we still appreciate life when all there is in this world is joy? It really amazes me how God has created the world and everything in it wonderfully. How things fall in and out of place in times you least expect it to.
They say the things you believe in define who you are, or if not, they say a lot about what your heart really feels or what you aspire to be. I believe in a lot of things. I reckon these five words aren't even enough, these are just a few. My list goes on and on, and there are still a lot of things I add to it as the days, weeks and years go by. If these aren't even enough to stand up each time I fall, pick myself up when the world shatters me into pieces and accept the fact that sometimes you just have to move on and focus on living your life forward than backwards, then I don't know what is.
It Takes a Man and a Woman posted at 7:00 PM
Disclaimer: This is not a movie review so don't expect something so formal. :)
After all the posts and the stories I was able to see, read and hear both in the internet and from people, I decided to watch It Takes a Man and a Woman. I won’t go on telling you the summary of the story, but I encourage you to know it yourself.
I still can't get over the KV (kilig vibes) their tandem gives me. I love how Laida (Sarah Geronimo) portrayed a braver, bolder, stronger, wiser and fiercer Laida Magtalas after their break-up. And Miggy (John Lloyd Cruz), oh Miggy. Random confession: I have a huge crush on JLC since I was a child! Yep, back in his Nagbibinata days. Okay, going back, I love how Miggy comes up with something to win Laida back everytime they’re not okay. Oh, what kind of girl wouldn’t want someone like Miggy Montenegro? He’s for keeps.
I also enjoyed Zoila, John Rae and Vincent. Well, I loved them since A Very Special Love because of their humor. Especially John Rae’s punchlines and Zoila’s wit! The way they called Laida, Sup-Laida Magtalas and Miggy, Miggy Montemonyo. And the way they turned around the kilig scenes of the first two movies (i.e. "Lock the door when you leave.", "Gaano kaclose?", etc)
Also, hands down to their acting. I felt every emotion they portrayed whether it was happy or sad, bitter or hurting or whatever. I cried when Laida and her father reconciled. That scene just touched my heart so much. Plus, the scene in front of the elevator when Miggy asked Laida why she doesn't want to finish the contract. I somehow “felt” the tears and I had goosebumps when they exchanged vows. There were unexpected events, but all in all, I am amazed at how their story turned out. In short, I love everything about the movie! J
I actually took note of the lines in the movie that really stood out for me. I was looking for the full transcript of Luis Montenegro’s (Miggy’s father) speech about Miggy, but I just can’t find one since this is just almost two weeks old. Anyway, will update this once I get a full transcript! J
John Rae: Blooming ka ngayon, inlove ka ba?
Laida: Porket blooming, inlove agad? ‘Di ba pwedeng nagmahal noon, umasa noon, nasaktan noon pero nakamove-on na ngayon?
Laida: Ano ang kailangan nating gawin para makamit natin ang kanilang matamis na oo?
Miggy: We buy it!
Laida: Binabayaran mo ang oo ng nililigawan mo? Parang wala naman akong nakuhang bayad noon.
Miggy: Ako ba nanligaw noon?
Tara! Laro tayo ng taguan. Taguan ng feelings. – John Rae
Kasi akala ko okay na okay na ako. Pero hindi eh, kasi hanggang ngayon andito parin, masakit pa rin. – Laida Magtalas
Laida: Pa'no ho ba magpatawad?
Baby: Gusto mo na ba? Dahil desisyon yun, Laida. Nung mga unang araw na nagkabalikan kami ng Tatay mo, sa cellphone ko may nakalagay, "Piliin mong magpatawad. Piliin mong magmahal." At inuulit ko yun araw-araw kasi kahit sa edad kong ito, mahirap.
Laida: Nay, pa'no niyo ho kinuha yun?
Baby: Kinaya ko kasi, mahal ko siya. 'Di ba may kasabihan, love is a choice. Ganun din ang pagpapatawad. Pipiliin mo rin yun, Laida. Araw-araw.
And then I lost you. Parang nawala na lahat. – Miggy Montenegro
I messed up. I messed up big time. Kaya kung ‘di mawawala yung galit mo, kung ‘di mo ko mapapatawad, maiintindihan ko because I deserve it. – Miggy Montenegro
I’m sorry for failing you. I’m sorry for hurting you. – Miggy Montenegro
Sana ‘di na lang ako bumalik para I’m the one that got away. Now, you’re the one that got away. And I’m just the girl you choose to let go. – Belle Laurel
Madalas sa kagustuhan nating maging pinakamagaling, nakakalimutan nating maging mabuti. We lose sight of the fact that everyday is a struggle to just be better. Doing good is what kept my family together… for the future of our children, and for our children’s children. It’s not the easiest, but that is probably the best legacy that a person can leave behind – to always believe in goodness and just be a good man. – Luis Montenegro
Miggy: Mr. and Mrs. Magtalas, gusto ko ho sana mag-apply sa inyo ng trabaho.
Tomas: Sa sapatusan?
Miggy: As Laida’s husband, Sir. And I’m willing to do everything just to qualify for the position.
Baby: Maraming salamat at nagpaalam ka muna sa amin, pero si Laida lang ata ang makakasagot niyan eh.
Laida: Pa’no ‘yan, magiging based ako sa New York for a while?
Miggy: I, just took an indefinite leave.
Art: That’s my signature there.
Miggy: I can just be with you and just be your husband while we’re in New York I’ll support you. I can run Flippage from there. Laida, all my life, my pursuit was always to be the best - to be number one. And now all I want is for you to feel that you’re number one for me, and that you will always be my only one. I love you. I love you, Laida Magtalas. And this is the man I want to be. And for the first time in my life, I want to be last. *kneels* I want to be the last man you’ll ever love. Can I be that man?
Laida: First and last? You’re hired.
Laida: Noon, pinangarap ko lang mahalin ng isang Miggy Montenegro. Ngayon, nagpapasalamat ako at hindi na ako naghintay ng ganun katagal para matupad ang pangarap ko na ‘yon. Hindi nagging madali ang love story natin. Ilang beses din akong napagod at sumuko. Matagal bago ko naintindihan na walang instant happy ending. I never realized that I failed to understand the true meaning of unconditional love. Of love that I always thought and I perfectly had for you.
Miggy: Five years ago, during one of the worst days of my life, when everyone was walking out on me, a girl walked into my life, and I never thought that, that day, hindi ko na alam na yun palang kaharap ko, yun pala ang future ko.
Laida: Patawarin mo sana ako sa mga, sa mga oras na sumuko ako. Ganun pala pag nagmahal ka ng totoo, kasama lahat ng maganda, ng pangit, ng malungkot, ng masakit. Ngayon, kaharap mo ang isang Laida na alam na alam ng buong-buo ang pinapasok niya. Isang Laida na hindi lang happily ever after ang gusto, kundi isang Laida na pinipili ang reality ever after with you. Mahal na mahal kita, Bebe ko. Mahal na mahal kita at wala na kong ibang nakikitang gawin kundi ang mahalin ka at pagsilbihan ka buong buhay ko. Kaya maraming salamat for hiring me once again as your EA. Your Eternal Assistant. Pwede ring, wait, pwede ring MA.
Miggy: Ano yun?
Laida: Maternal Assistant para sa magiging babies natin. Lord, thank You. Thank You. Hindi Mo alam kung gaano ako kaexcited dahil pagmulat ng mga mata ko mamayang umaga, si good morning husband na mismo ang kaharap ko, ang kausap ko ang mamahalin ko forever!
Miggy: Today I realized. I won’t be making any vows for my wedding. No.
Miggy: Because this is not a day for promises. Today, I stand here, in front of you, in complete surrender. I have no worries, I have no fear, because I know, and I know because I’m sure, and I’m sure because I’m yours. God bless our marriage. And God bless me for wanting 12 kids with you.
Miggy: I love you
Laida: I love you too.
Miggy: So much.
Laida: Noon at ngayon, pati na rin in between.
Miggy: Laida ang Miggy, version 3.0!
Tell me what you think about the movie once you've finished watching it and I hope you enjoyed the It Takes a Man and a Woman quotes! Cheerios! x
Why I love Tyler Knott posted at 11:15 AM
I was browsing my Tumblr dashboard around July last year when I saw a friend reblog this post. I stumbled upon a blog that I didn't know would mean so much to me after. Want to know what actually made me look on that blog? Here.
After reading that piece, my life was changed forever. I went on his tumblr and backread everything. I even saved up all his Typewriter Series images, all for my "personal use". You see, friends, I am a sucker for words. I love it when words are either put together similarly or just juxtaposed in a manner that brings out thoughts and emotions deeper than you think they could possibly be. That's what I love about Tyler Knott.
I love how Tyler Knott Gregson is so friendly despite the fact that he's some sort of "online celebrity" with the number of followers he has on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram (and yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am one of the many followers in ALL those social networking sites. ;) ) I tried tweeting him more often, and he has responded too, unexpectedly. That's what I love about Tyler Knott.
The way he contructs his Daily Haiku is just so amazing. It's as if he has the perfect choice of 17 words all the time. Truth be told, he inspired me to make my own Haiku notebook which I blogged about here. That's what I love about Tyler Knott.
He captures images and teams it up with prose or thoughts that entice you to look in the picture and try to feel what he felt during the moment he took the photo. It's like his soul was created, meant to let people feel every possible emotion that there is to feel. That's what I love about Tyler Knott.
I do hope I could see him in person one day. Maybe when he gets the chance to visit the Philippines, or I get the chance to visit where he is and just try to ask him about life, love and how he comes up with lovely prose and poetry. Who his muse is and how he never runs out of words to melt a person's heart. And maybe I'll tell him more why, of all the blogs I read, his blog is my top 1 favorite.
Visit his blog! :) http://tylerknott.com
10 places I'd like to visit while I'm still alive posted at 1:39 PM
I've never been to any other country aside from the Philippines.
I told myself that if I will be given the chance to travel, I'll explore my own country first before going out of it. But a girl can dream right? Lately, I've been having this overwhelming wanderlust. Problem is, I have no enough money to splurge on the idea and I have more important things to attend to right now. Basing on my bucketlist and my childhood dreams, I came up with a list of 10 places I would really like to visit around the world. I know these places can wait. I have to save up first so every experience in each place will really be worth it.
The very main reason why I want to go to Thailand is to see these floating lanterns in person. It's called the Yi Peng Festival and it's held annually usually on November. I got engrossed with the idea of floating lanterns because of Tangled. To my surprise, that scene on the river was actually based from the Yi Peng festival in Thailand. I do hope that I get to witness it, be there and feel what there is to feel. That's one of my biggest dreams that I hope would be fulfilled.
Truly Asia *insert my singing voice here* I kid! I actually had no interest in Malaysia before. But because of our new found friends from Malaysia during our NICE2013 experience, I got interested in the country. I do hope that come October, I have saved up enough money for WHEN Malaysia. That would be a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Oh, the Big Ben. What awe would flow through my veins being awaken by the Big Ben's "BONG! BONG! BONG!". There's just too much in London that I have learned to love even if I haven't been there yet. The people, the places and other things too.
I've dreamt of Italy since I was a child. As young as I was, I thought this side of Italy was very romantic. You know, when a couple from a romantic movie goes on a date and the guy rows the boat for the girl or something of that sort. I want to see more places in Italy, taste more food and feel the Italian vibe (if there's even such a thing. Lol. )
Who doesn't dream of Paris? I think everyone else does, but if not, I believe every girl does. But I think my reason/s would be different from the usual. Most of the girls in the world dream to be in Paris because it is included in the top four fashion capitals in the world (alongside with London, New York and Milan.) I just want to see the Eiffel Tower in person and a lot of other sceneries.
I've had this fetish for Chinese things when I was in highschool. I even bought a "Learn How To Speak In Mandarin" book for my own but failed to actually learn a lot from it. There's something about the Chinese culture that actually amazes me. How they go about with traditions and how they strive hard to maintain their culture while the rest of the world is slowly being westernized because of globalization. And of course, who wouldn't want to see The Great Wall of China.
There's just something inside of me that wants to visit Spain. My great grandparents from my Mum's side are pure Spanish as far as I know. And my great grandparents from my Dada's side also have strong Spanish blood. I just want to see and discover more things in Spain than those which I've seen in telenovelas.
I actually had no interest in Greece at first. Yes, I know Greece because of world literature discussions back when I was still in high school, but never did it cross my mind to visit that place. It all changed though when I finished the movie Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.
New York. Not because of the fashion, the fame and others, but because I just want to see the Statue of Liberty in person. I think if I were to go to NY just for a day just to see the famous statue, that would be more than enough. Am I cray? Well, not.
Singapore, Singapore, Singapore. When I entered in college, I told myself that once I graduate, I will finish all needed papers and immediately leave for Singapore and work there. But things change, and we don't have our own fate in our hands, it still depends on what God has planned for us. Nevertheless, I would still like to see the Merlion in person and go to other tourist spots in Singapore.
I'm not really after the perks of being in that place, but rather gaining experience, feeling new things and seeing those dreams come to life. Well, I hope I can visit all these places while I'm still alive (because saying I hope to visit these places before I die sounds a bit of for me. :) ) and this blog will be my witness to that.
Hoping for the best! Cheerios. x

Muradosmann: Beyond Wonderful posted at 6:08 PM
I saw this on my Tumblr dashboard last week while trying to take a break from all the stress acads brought me. I was at a loss for words when I saw these photos. Wonderful? Nah, not even close. Beautiful? That would be an understatement. Brilliant? Quite, but not the exact word I’m looking for. I stared at these photos for a few minutes ‘till I finally realized how lovely the concept was. I was not satisfied with just five photos so I tried to look for more. Good thing the post had a link which was the source of the photos. Lo and behold, it was an Instagram account of a certain Muradosmann. I was more than astounded. Most of the photos in it were his and his girlfriend’s hand, holding on to each other wherever they went. Here are 10 of my favourite photos in his account.
I hope someday I could take photos like these, too. Travel and hold someone for keeps. Maybe, most probably, with the right man. J

I actually got inspired by Tyler Knott Gregson. He actually makes haikus with ease and almost everyday. So I decided, why not make my own ones? Here are some of the contents of this lovely notebook.
Currently, I have more than 10. It's not an everyday thing, so I'm not pressuring myself. I'm still trying my best to come up with better haikus. I aim to fill this up before the year ends. :)
