Silence is a luxury

I hear noise 24 / 7, right now I hear people typing sounds, in fact i hear my own typing sound, the air conditioner noise, the metal bins opening and closing, someone is laughing. I really miss the silence, plain silence. Last night we had a 10 minute electrical power interruption at home and honestly i enjoyed every single moment of it, there was real silence. The usual television sounds, the electric fan, the water motors, the refrigirator, are all silent.. gone...great! ΓΌ Silence is a luxury, not everyone has the chance to experience it, lucky are the ones who live in remote areas where they are free from such industrial noises caused by too much technology. Cheers to the prehistoric period and remote areas with no technology! Hoorah

I was trapped! Literally!

Last saturday started out with a headache, I woke up from a late friday night slumber after watching the movie "Beowulf" which disgusted the hell out of me(the violence). Let us return to the headache, so when i woke up, i slept for another hour to lose the headache. I had everything planned for that day, go out with my dad for the whole day and go home at night, then have an early sleep. So we went on with the plan, me and my dad went to the Megamall in ortigas and ate great food, shopped, dined, and played games in the arcade, fun fun fun! :) It already seems like a perfect planned day when around 9 in the evening, i was left alone in the room when the door knob became stucked! I had to call out help because i don't have any tools that could possibly open the door, i tried using the card trick, inserting a plastic card at the edge of the door hoping that the door will open, but i tell you this 3 times! it wont work! it wont work! it wont work! To summarize the happening, i called out help, everybody tried to open the door, my auntie climbed up from the second floor, through the fire escape to my room in the third floor to help me (she brought tools!), we spent around an hour, and ended up with my door sliced(the part of the door knob)... now my door has no lock and it has a hole perfect for peeping.

Gates of Heaven

It got crowded in heaven, so, for one day it was decided only to accept people who had really had a bad day on the day they died. St. Peter was standing at the pearly gates and said to the first man, "Tell me about the day you died."
The man said, "Oh, it was awful. I was sure my wife was having an affair, so I came home early to catch her with him. I searched all over the apartment but couldn't find him anywhere.
So I went out onto the balcony, we live on the 25th floor, and found this man hanging over the edge by his fingertips. I went inside, got a hammer, and started hitting his hands. He fell, but landed in some bushes.
So, I got the refrigerator and pushed it over the balcony and it crushed him. The strain of the act gave me a heart attack, and I died."
St. Peter couldn't deny that this was a pretty bad day, and since it was a crime of passion, he let the man in. He then asked the next man in line about the day he died. "Well, sir, it was awful," said the second man. "I was doing aerobics on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment when I twisted my ankle and slipped over the edge.
I managed to grab the balcony of the apartment below, but some maniac came out and started pounding on my fingers with a hammer. Luckily I landed in some bushes. But, then the guy dropped a refrigerator on me!" St. Peter chuckled, let him into heaven and decided he could really start to enjoy this job.
"Tell me about the day you died?", he said to the third man in line.
"OK, picture this; I'm naked, hiding inside a refrigerator ..."

Public Courtesy

I have been around malls this weekend, riding the LRT to SM Sta. Mesa and going to 168 mall(which seems crowdier everytime i go there). Here are some public courtesy deficiency that i have observed:
1. While in the mall food court area, i saw this guy take a drink in the drinking fountain, so he takes the glass, fills it with water, drinks the water and returns the glass top down, exactly to where it was located before, doing that, others will think that the glass is not yet used and will use it. I did not wait for the next person to pick up that same glass and drink from it.
2. This happens all the time in escalators, people won't stay on one side!!!! It is a courtesy to stand in one side of the escalator, preferably the right side so that people who are in a hurry could easily pass by.
3. In bus, I hate seeing old people, pregnant women, disabled and children standing, please give up your seat for them.
4. When riding the MRT (mass train), people stay crowded near the doors, I mean, why block the doorway? The courtesy is to stay inward the train, away from the doors, if everybody wants to stay near the door, it is always a burden to get in or out the train.
Courtesy is really important, it is respect. Respect others and they will in turn respect you. Peace! ..V.

See things with a different eye

A song from spongebob (see

I wish I could join you there in the air
Floating free, without a care
I wish I could fly, and see things with a different eye
If I could fly, so very high, and touch the sky
And never have to ask why it is, that I can't fly

We could look at situations differently as we see them in different perspective, they say there are always two sides of the story(glass half full, glass half empty) , i say there are infinite(glass half full, glass half empty, who left this glass?, ooo... shiny glass, and so on). If we learn to look at things at the perspective of others, we could understand them more. Be happy, let your imaginations take you to different perspectives, fly away and touch the sky, never asking why you can't fly.

Hectic Wednesday

This morning, my alarm clock seems to have given up on me.... my alarm clock is set at 5:45am, i usually just press snooze everytime it alarms until i finally wake up at 6:30am, not the case today. Fortunately, i was waken up at 7:05am and the first phrase i uttered was: "Ha? May pasok ba ngayon?" then just like lightning, i jumped off the bed and took a bath and stuff... and i was ready after less than 10 minutes, gladly i was able to join my aunt's ride where I go along with to the office (I am dropped off EDSA). I was still one of the earliest in office though.
