She received the flowers. She just thanked him in the cold and then she was nowhere to be found since then. And he said unto her, "We made things happen. I love you, goodbye."

I do remember the Linggo ng Wika. How surprising to know that Pilipino, the language, faces extinction. When I was in Manila, I had a problem communicating with the people there. I was asked where I came from. They told me, they no longer use those words in the streets of Manila. What can I do? I had to speak with them in the American twang with the fancy accent that I tried to hide. O well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Makihalo. What's important is...communicate.

It was 1983 when I heard the news of Ninoy being gunned down. He once said, "The Filipino is worth dying for."
Runaway Bride, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere stars. Will a 'runaway bride' find her way here on the Valley Isle? :) I watched this movie today. I had popcorn. I don't know how to compare it with Betty's Popcorn in the Ayala Center especially when layered with butter on two layers.

Bagamat ang buhay ay isang gulong lamang, isa lang ang tanging nakabigkis sa ating pananaw sa buhay. May mga bagay-bagay na dapat nating suriin ang ating nakaraan para makita natin ang ating hinaharap. Minsan lang akong nangarap para malikom ko lahat ang karunungang angkin ng mga may dunong at likas na angking talino. Hihikayatin ko silang ibantayog ang sarili sa lupang kanilang nagtamnan ng kanilang pinag-aralan para sa bayang Perlas ng Silanganan.
Written about 4 years ago from an inspired thought of being 'macabayan.'

Paglingap sa Kinabukasan. Instinctive in every man's mind is his nature to tolerate the changes that took place in the chronicles of man in search for his country's plight for serendipity.
