Bye bye love

Saying good bye for me is like smelling grass. You’d get that feel of going back home, of reminiscing the past. You get that confirmation that a season has come to an end, but at the same time, know that it’s never really final. The smell of green moist grass will turn to a dry crisp one, but you know that the dry grass will spring a new sheet again after dying. Some things come in full circle, though may present itself with a different mask. People come and go, but paths do still cross.

I've had my emotional share of good byes mostly with good friends. I’ve lost all of my high school friends to their plight for happiness, romance, or the generic search for a greener pasture. One married a Korean and migrated to k-pop land. Another got married and got too busy. The others went overseas for work. I've lost my college friends in almost the same scenario. My college crime buddies either went back home to the US, or migrated to Au. I’ve created new best buds along the way but bade them good bye as well, owing to differences, or maybe just plainly growing apart.
But I never dismissed the fact that our paths will still cross. Like no matter how many “Keep off the grass” signs are planted on the ground, you’re still bound to find yourself in the middle of park-sized patch, surprise surprise.

So yeah, I’m bidding blogging good bye for now. Bidding farewell to all the good and bad memories. From meeting new friends to office mates using my blogging as gossip material to ruin my name in the field. I’m keeping the good memories and forgetting the not so good ones.
And for all the real names that I've come to know, saved in my phone book, added in FB, partied, cheered, cried with or served with in an outreach, will remain part of my geographically challenged path.

I’ve been on AWOL on blogging already, might as well officiate it. I've been busy with work, transitioning from being a lost soul to a rebel ninja, sidelining as a wizard, shadowhunter and… whatever (sorry I lost my trail of thought haha).
So this is it. I bid online world good bye.

Because I’ll be eternally busy.

Getting on this new role.

Of a superhero.

So, bye bye love... for now.

Weirdness, changes and whatever updates

It has been so long I've actually forgotten my blogger password and even forgotten how to write (deleted a few lines and decided to just write as if I'm just chatting with you guys in a coffee shop, so pardon the lack of whatever-flow).

So I've been busy. What's new, right? I'm actually thankful there's whatsapp, wechat, viber and all those chat whatever platforms. I've missed out on all family meetings, reunions and birthdays this year, thus my cousins would just update me on whatsapp. I haven't seen any of my old friends either. 

So sms and chat are my only connection to the world even sometimes with my dad. He has gotten used to sms talk and I'm not sure if he uses facebook chat on his phone, but sometimes he gets a bit weird on his replies.

On his birthday, I've asked friends to send him a birthday greeting. 

His reply to most "happy birthday tito"? "Happy ako kung happy ka. Maraming salamat!"

Oo, mas werido sakin daddy ko. Wala akong binatbat.

The other day, I asked him if he could pick me up from the airport, this was his reply:

So what the F is "Ooyytyt?" Please enlighten me.

Anyway, for some weird reason, I'm not comfortable being called "poi" anymore. When I look in the mirror, I don't see the old poi. When I meet new friends, I don't introduce myself as Poi. If ever I've somehow changed, I hope it's for the better. I hope somehow I've matured and it's not just some new alter ego surfacing (may pagka multiple personality/ MPD lang?).

I feel like that whole book of "poi" has ended and I'm actually on a new chapter of my life (if in case you know why, just keep it a secret for now haha).

I'm cooking up a new blog and reserved a url, just in case I decide to blog again for fun. So don't be surprised if you find me on a new page.

I'm leaving poipagong and toiletots and all the memories. It became an avenue for me to meet real friends, who've become permanent fixtures in my offline life. Kaya, salamat,salamat sa lahat ng taon na kasama ko kayo (drama lang).

I might have one last post, but it wouldn't come out till September. Bakit September? Basta na.

You guys know how to contact me. chat chat nalang! :P
