sad but true

Before, I wake up at 4am.

Now I'll be sleeping at 4am.

I hate this feeling.

I only realized now that there really is an unknown feeling.

badminton virgin

I was invited by cora and the gang to play badminton somewhere in Casimiro, Las PiƱas. At first I was hesitant because it was my very first time playing in a badminton court. Heck it was my first time playing badminton after 6 years. The last time I played badminton was way way way back 2nd year HS and that was because of P.E. I wasn't nervous mind you, I was excited.

This could be my first ever official sport. I'm really not a sportsy kind of guy. I don't know bball, i don't know err... just about anything bout any sport. That explains why I have a lousy physique.

Hmmm.. actually now that i've thought of it I'm making badminton my sport of choice because on friday this week I will buy my very first badminton racket.. Woopedoo.. So if you could give me some advices on badminton, I would appreciate it very much.

this is so untrue

You Have A Type A- Personality


You are one of the most balanced people around
Motivated and focused, you are good at getting what you want
You rule at success, but success doesn't rule you.

When it's playtime, you really know how to kick back
Whether it's hanging out with friends or doing something you love!
You live life to the fullest - encorporating the best of both worlds


For the past few days I'm always bothered by pervasive sadness. No, I'm not always like this. Most people think that I'm always happy, guess they just don't know the real me.

Sometimes I wish time would just stop or rather my mind would just blank out.

But that would have been an easy escape.

Mind you, I'm no suicidal maniac.

I know that once in a while you think the same as I do...

ay.... may nagpayo nga pala sa akin na magtagalog naman ako.. kaya eto tagalog na.. hehehe. Hindi ko rin maintindihan ang sarili ko minsan kung bakit ako ganito? Sa totoo lang naiinis na rin ako. Marami ako masyado naiisip pero hindi ko mapunto kung ano talaga yun. Basta ang alam ko pagkatapos ko magisip nalulungkot na lang ako.

Hindi masaya ang malungkot (malamang). Marami ako gusto ilathala sa aking blog, maraming marami. Dito ko nailalabas ang aking mga saloobin ngunit parang kulang pa rin. Dahil sa oras na nagsusulat na ako, nawawala na yung iniisip ko.. leading to hindi pagpopost... hehehehe

Focus is the key... but i've lost them a long time ago.

She smiles.
She holds my hand.
She kisses my forehead.
She says ILOVEYOU and mean it.
She hugs me every chance she gets.
She knows me more than anyone else.
She almost always never let me down.
She makes me smile whenever I feel down.
she cries with me and even gives me a hug.
She knows that love is more than a feeling.
She know when and when not to be responsible.
She knows I love and will love her more and more.
she laughs with me even at the corniest of things.
She personifies the meaning of forgive and forget.
she understands me even though I don't understand myself.

but she's not here yet
She may never even come.
because she is too ideal.

and i know that the real She will be an exception...

ehem.. ehem.. ubo.. ubo

I felt queasy yesterday, can't think straight on what I was doing. Wait.. I never think straight; my trail of thought is usually plagued by my ever intervening subconcious. Anyway, I felt that I was going to be sick yesterday and voila! Instead of developing a program, I developed a cough. hehehehe...

Don't want to work today but I must. At least I woke up in a not so ungodly hour of 6am.

There I go again, rationalizing everything just to make it look better but it never does. Depends on the perspective really.

And again... argggh..

tayo na sa Antipolo

I've never been to Antipolo before, not until yesterday that is. I was at a bar till early morning last saturday, (thus i should rephrase my last post to boring saturday morning. hehehe.), say 4am! with some friends. A friend of ours, Ford treated us because he is going to Japan later this week. Ingat ford ^___^ <--(japanese smiley)

My original schedule was to sleep over Dennis' place coz he wants me to teach him some basic video editing. Not wanting to sleep over another friends house (because I have this habit that when I sleep late on a friends house, no one could wake me up, unless they do some extreme measures of course and thank God they haven't... yet) I went straight to Cainta.

I rode an fx at Shaw and took a short nap. Unfortunately the short nap turned into a deep sleep. Awoken by the other passengers disembarking the FX, I asked the driver 'Manong, Brookside?' then he said 'Boy, lagpas ka na. Dapat sinabi mo kanina!', 'Ahehehhe, nakatulog po ako e.
(Well I could have if I'm a sleep talker)'

tayo na sa Antipolo...

boring saturday

What Are The Keys To Your Heart?

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when your partner is patient and never willing to give up on you.
You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage pessimistically. You don't think happy marriages exist anymore.
In this moment, you think of love as something you don't need. You just feel like flirting around and playing right now.

Part Romantic Kisser

For you, kissing is all about feeling the romance
You love to kiss under the stars or by the sea
The perfect kiss involves the perfect mood
It's pretty common for kisses to sweep you off your feet

Part Expert Kisser

You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity
You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off
And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave
When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable

my very first godson

Though we might not often see each other, I'll spoil you rotten every chance I get.. harharhar

Good Mawnin

Good Mawnin!

Well what's good about the morning? I woke up at 7:00AM!!! Wohoo! but slept at 3:00AM. Sheesh.. talk about balance or maybe the lack of it.

It's heavily raining right now but still hot, hot, HOT!!! Grabe ang init. I'm one of those freakos that even when it's sooo cold, gets to sweat and when I say sweat I really mean sweat!

There was this one time while riding the LRT to work, it was raining outside and it was cold inside; I was the only one perspiring like my body would remove all my bodily fluids through sweating. You could just imagine what the people around me were thinking then.

Makes me believe I'm a penguin more and more.

An ode to good nights sleep

Good nights sleep, a thing of the past.
You again have slipped my grasped,

How I wish you'll visit me now!
How I wish you could remove my scowl!

How I wish, wishes were true,
because if they are, then maybe,
just maybe, I'll catch you...

work work work.

never thought I would have to work this late. Well actually I don't have to (labo) but I prefer staying late in the office doing something than go home early and think. Hay... I really wish I could turn my brain off for a period of time (but if I turned it off who'll turn it on? hahahaha). Need to focus on what I'm doing.

I really can't think straight actually, always something disturbing my trail of thought, always thinking of something insignificant, always becoming conciously unconscious.

If only by thinking I could do something.... ah the bliss...

cellular heart


NAME: Keena Francisco
AGE: 42 dog years
BREED: Daschund

To our dearest keena, all your time with us brought endless smiles and laughters; and now I know your now standing in the gates of doggy-dog heaven where you will never be tired of eating class A steaks and where the thunder and lightning won't frighten you no more.

We will never forget you / We will always remeber you.
(can't decide which one to put, and remembered, heck I could post anything I want)

poetic crap unleashed

As I lay in bed,
restless shadows hustle again in my head;
but today it's different.
Today I'm vulnerable.
Today I give in.

Welcome to the darkside.

Makati at night

Shot w/ a Tamron 28-75mm F2.8

This is the view I see if I turn left from my desk at the office.

Wish I bought a wider lens though.

Maybe I'll retake this again on monday with a more wider lens.


Shot w/ a Canon EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6

Different lens. Don't know which ones better though.

The day I found my rubberducky

Wohoo! At first I was so frustrated because I can't seem to find a bag to buy just this evening. I was really eyeing one of those Samsonite backpacks as in I was drooling to buy them coz I really need a bag for tomorrow to hold my precious (Canon 350D). Well technically my fasha's (tatay) DSLR but soon I would have enough money to buy my own... heehhehe... soon... anyways going back, I could have bought them if I didn't also need to buy a pair of shoes but alas I do; so I was looking all over Landmark and Glorietta and that leads me to Toby's where I saw the (i mean my) rubberducky dry bag.

Yey! The perfect knapsack bag for the DSLR because it's water proof and doesn't look that you would hold valuables inside ! Wohoo!!! Just perfect....

Watched the movie Madagascar by Disney and what could I say? It's corny, just the way I like it. I don't get my friends sometimes when they call me corny. Coz when i asked them what's the definition of corny, all they could say is YOU. Your the definition of corny. Heck, they even named every corny joke they tell in my honor, hence the word 'Topeng Joke.' I'm not fond of it really but what can I do? the word corny sticks on me like tatoo on my forehead.

By the way change my blog from turtle to penguin. I think it just suits me better. See me walk to understand... hehehehehe...
