Kung Minsan

Kung minsan, gusto mong hilingin na magtagal ang isang bagay
Bilang sa kamay ang minsanang pagpapatangay
Sana’y matupad. Sana’y matugunan. Sana’y maghatid ng ligaya.
At sana, hindi puro SANA ang susunod na litanya.

Sagada Trip Invite

Sagada 3D/2N

Sagada 3D/2N

I know ang tagal na nung last na post ko. Na-busy lang. Na-miss ko rin naman ang WordPress bahay ko. Anyway, hindi yan ang topic ngayon.

I’m inviting all of you (na followers at nagbabasa ng mga entries ko) to our Sagada trip this coming long weekend, May 1-3. You can see the details. So if you have any concerns, you can send your inquiries through the contact details stated above.

Actually, we’re looking for 5 participants na lang, so kung nasa Manila/Pinas ka naman at walang gagawin pa this weekend, sama na. 🙂

Thanks! Taralets! 🙂

Appeal VS Looks

This is just an initial assessment and based on what I am seeing now.

I recently met someone and this someone actually belongs to a group of three people whom I started a good friendship (hopefully my instinct is right) with for the past couple of weeks and one of them is really a dear friend. The person involved in this entry looks normal and nothing is really noticeable except for the goatee, which is an inch longer (now) compared to normal ones of typical Pinoys. His ritual is cut the goatee in New Year and let it grow for six months or so, until it reaches his chest part. The goatee makes him appealing (in all possible ways) and authoritative, I guess.

This someone is not really handsome, not even the cute word can be associated with him. He even claimed that he already accepted the fact that’s he’s not one of those men who would actually look like decent. Jokingly, he said that he can be mistaken as a robber. Mukhang hindi gagawa ng mabuti. I retorted with a laugh when I read that message because this man really knows how to make fun of himself and he’s totally cool with it. Zero fucks were given to people who actually judged him based on his looks.

What’s more interesting about this man is that he’s loaded with real-talk humor and carefully laid green jokes (which I don’t mind, really) for his companions. He’s the kind of man who would rather chill out everyday than talk about life’s excess baggage. He still talks about problems but doesn’t really give a serious shit. And I want to quote him, “Pain is temporary” and he does know what kind of pieces of advice he would give to a problematic person. He may be harsh most of the time (words, point of reference, comparison), but he definitely contributes something valuable to the other party. I’ve seen him giving reasonable and sound advice to people who need it.

This is how I see him and this impression is really a good one. He may not be a handsome guy, but he definitely carries himself with confidence full of humor and substance, making him MORE APPEALING than any other men I’ve known. And definitely yes, his goatee sets one notch higher of becoming an appealing guy.

P.S. Nakakagigil ‘yong goatee nya! Ang sarap hilahin. Hahahaha! 😀

New Year’s Sound



Aloha! I know, I know, I haven’t updated this blog yet. But here I am now, making an impromptu “blog” without really thinking of a nice topic to talk about. I have lame excuses like “I’m busy with work” or “The holidays took my time” or the classic “Tinatamad ako” but of course, I still want to write something here from time to time.

Well, maybe I’m giving more attention to the other blog these days. The photo above is a screenshot of my first mixtape for 2015 and I’m more than glad to share lovely music that I discovered last year. Allow me to brag that this particular mixtape for Manillenials gained a good number for reposts and retweets. Not only those people who likes music but the legit and thriving OPM musicians/artists of today.

I featured a lot of hip and urban Filipino sounds, earning a title of The New Sound of OPM. I totally enjoyed hunting new OPM songs and listened to more than 100 songs in a day. I didn’t feel any exhaustion because they’re all good for my ears.Some songs were already part of my playlist, but I need to listen to them again to justify my goal of sharing the best possible sounds of our new local musicians. I can’t seem to get enough of it, actually.

For continuous listening, I created an 8tracks playlist so you won’t need to click on the play button again and again.

Anyway, let me share some of my top favorites on the playlist:

1. Oh, Flamingo – June

2. Peryodiko – Kung Alam Mo Lang (Feat. Buddy Zabala x Morse)

3. Flying Ipis – Lundagin Mo Beybi

4. The Strange Creatures – I Feel Like I’m On Drugs

5. Lustbass – XXX

6. Jireh Calo – Stay

7. Kate Torralba – Drunk on Your Love

8. Kala – Libot

9. Wilderness – Pasaway

10. Chocolate Grass – Testify

11. Mic Manalo – Halika

12. Tandems ’91 – At Last

Happy listening! ❤

P.S. I’ll update my movie archive by the end of January.
