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

Christmas Sabak

I know I know, I've promised to write about the past few "sabak" with the BMIM-er kada (naks), but schedule has been really crazy. So, for now, I'm re-posting this from JH Alms' blog.

BMIM has been running around the metro for months with their endeavor to touch and inspire less fortunate kids running around in the streets. From their main activity of providing shirts sponsored by different bloggers, to additional acitivites such us story telling from our soon to be teacher friends, to feeding, giving out school supplies etc., BMIM has grown to be a continuous activity with blogger friends all helping out for the kids.

So, in this yuletide season, let's all support this Christmas sabak for the kids (details on the poster pic c/o abbie zoom zoom zip zip hehe).

 Sabi ko nga, sa mga nag rarant na malamig ang kanilang pasko, romance is so overated, it's not hte only one that makes Christmas meaningful, that's for Valentines. Kaya, let's all share our blessings and warm each other's (and the kid's) hearts by sharing our blessings.

go BMIM! cheers!

Para kay Master Mater

Andami kong natutunan sayo. 
Sa dami din ng gusto kong sabihin sayo, i-courier ko nalang, kindi kaya ng scan :D
Sabi mo nga, "There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will." 

Happy birthday bespren!

Ikaw padin ang nag-iisang mater ng buhay ko lol.

Thursday gimik: TUGTOGSILOG (JAM for a CAUSE)

(copied from madz)

Everyone is invited to be a part of this benefit concert for the Malaya Kids Ministries in Baseco Tondo. For a door fee of P100 PLUS any kind of canned goods, you can enjoy the night with alternative music from some of our local bands and also share your love with the kids this coming Christmas.

Share a bread for the soul.  Watch Tugtogsilog this coming Thursday, October 25, 2012 @ 8pm in Autonomy Bar and Resto Mandaluyong. 

See you there!

My friends would always ask me, "is it sustainable?" I don't blame their skepticism, it is indeed more meaningful if your ‘help’ goes a long way and gives out a certain “permanence” rather than a short-lived comfort.

The people behind the Malaya Kids Ministries have been with the kids of Baseco for quite some time now, and like any other endeavor, it becomes sustainable because there are certain people who would support the cause.

I’ve seen the difference with how these kids interact with their elders. They had discipline taught by the volunteers. They sing praises to God and pray their thanks for each meal blessed to them. MKM has other projects lined up, like a library that is almost ready but needs to be filled with books and other materials for the kids amongst others.

But it’s not just the sustainability of a “structure” or a building. They have molded those kids’ characters to become good citizens as they grow old. Sustainable? Yes. But they would need your  help.

So yes, friends, tara! let’s SUPPORT AND PARTY!

Para sa nag-iisang Bioman

Para sa nag-iisang Bioman (aka reyna ng tondo)

bata man,
upang tanggapin ka man,
o mga bioman,
bida sa barilan,
bang, bang,
at sa eroplano ay sumakay.
ako'y kawal ni Jesus.
Yes sir! Yes sir!

Happy Birthday Mutya! :P
