The second day of Maui County Fair.
Who wants to come with me? I went to the bookstore and read some books
while waiting for my friend at the coffee shop. I began to have an interest
with jazz music. That would mean addition to my music library. I enjoyed
drinking chai while reading. Preference? Hot or cold? Cold.
A 24-hour fast from yesterday and ended
in the afternoon. It felt good and rejuvenating to the mind, body, and
was at the swap meet with my friend and looking for books and some veggies.
I've seen some old friends there selling there wares and handicrafts and
of course, las comidas. Yummy!
a few rounds at the swap meet, we spent time with my lola and have lunch
there. My little cousin was playful and talented. Sometimes, she's also
punky like Punky Brewster.
Talent. It is learned. Gift.
It is acquired.
It's a Monday. Ang daming work. Aaahhh.
Talagang ganyan sa araw ng Lunes.
Maaga ako ngayon sa work. Napuyat ako
koz nagwork ako kahapon at night. Pagdating ko sa bahay, nakatulog ako.

As Time Flies
Tell me of things that you love to do
When you are alone searching something
You do not know
Alone, alone where can you be
I can't find you nowhere I plea

Elizabeth is a great movie. Volta is a dance.

A series of stories will be published

He is leaving. Yes, one of my best friends.
Sad, so sad. Even my other friends mourn. What matters most is the bonding
of good friends. Where's the wild turkey, Baby? Move on...where the wind
will lead you. Like a feather, you'll land to your destiny.
Something for the Filipino. From

This is NOT my thoughts but if you happen to read this, search
yourself, explore your past, who you are.
goes. You know 98% of Filipinos do not love their country. They don't
have this love that many other people around have. Do you know why?
No one knows why! But when you send these
very same people to anywhere else in the world they are the best and most
disciplined people on the world. This has been shown in many many magazines.
The next problem is because they arean't
nationalistic. They are nationalistic in a long distance way.
Unfortunately, it is genetic. According
to a lot of scientists. It is only the Filipino that is brought up like
this and has this type of personality.
Another reason why they aren't nationalistic
is because they hate their country and for what it stands for. Anytime
the Filipino is asked what nationality does he have. He will never ever
in his lifetime proudly say, "I'm Filipino."
By chance, will you ever see a Filipino
in a war say, like the Americans or the Europeans, "My country
needs me and I have to fight for my country's defense." Ano kaya
ang sabihin ng Pinoy? "Pare hindi guerra ko yan, dito na lang ako.
Bahala kayo diyan." Right?
Let not this mentality be amongst us
and the future generation of Filipinos. As our islands are scattered in
the Pacific Ocean, don't let our consciousness be scattered, too for we
are One People with Pride and Dignity.
Joy Luck Club...what a fine movie.
If u watched it before, I would say it's a great movie. I learned a lot
about the Chinese culture and tradition. What is my worth? Am I worth
something? What am I? American and Chinese culture are so different...
What is meant to be free? What is meant to be obedient?
This swan feather has traveled from afar
and it's coming to you with its all good intentions.

she finally met her older twin sisters in China and brought them all their

whole day was great and fulfilling and even reaching into the night. I
had a chance to learn from a sage--full of wisdom and empowerment.
Halloween of '98. I was dressed in
drag. That was a fun night with my friends at Lahaina's Front Street.
Yeah, groovy baby. I saw Austin Powers there, too, doing the schwinging.
I'm here in the confinement of my solitude.
