T'was Been A While

It has been a while since the last time I posted something here in the blogosphere. But I think that 'while' is not that long. You see, I have become too busy these past few weeks, and still I am busy. I am sparing a bit of my time for this post. I need to write something useful than to write a technical report of which I find very boring. Boring because I am not a scientific writer.

See that guy over there? that's the 'student me'. Yeah, 'student me' reading the hell of a map, working in the field, walking under the excruciating heat of the sun, because of one thing - to pass this major subject. This course, geology, is hard yah know. If I didn't shift to this one, I could have graduated BS Math by now.

And do you know what time of the year is this? SUMMER. Summer. The time of the year when all of the people in the world are supposed to have fun, fool around with some pretty ladies in the sand, and play computer games in the house 24/7. Go to Cebu or Manila for a city escapade. Or how about to Mabinay and visit my adorable grandpa. Eat some Kamoteng kahoy, apara amd anagon. Go to the baol and watch him as he do the cultivating while I do the eating of mga sinag'on. And after a day's stressful work of watching TV, I rest at the balcony of his old fashioned two-storey house. How's that?

But NO. Here I am, late at night, making a group report to be passed tomorrow morning 8AM. For sure I am able to finish this report two days ago but my group mates gave me the field data hours ago. They are/were such a big help. I couldn't ask for more. I love them so much I want to squeeze them one by one. It's okay because they have a valid reason. They were processing their enrollment for their OJT so they just, yah know, temporarily rejected the idea that the deadline is tomorrow.

I am not complaining. Really. I AM NOT!

Goodbye! Have a good day!

All of a Sudden...

A few days ago, I became very much excited about my OJT that I hurriedly and immediately worked on the documents/Identifications that the Lepanto Mining Incorporated is requiring. There goes my Barangay Clearance, Birth Certificate, Police Clearance, Medical Clearance, and others which are very much needed with my training in Baguio Philippines! Isn't that cool? I mean, literally cool because it's cold there.

Oh, I forgot to mention that it is one of the three biggest mining corporations here in the country ( Lepanto makes a big deal of money in our income tax return every year). Then after that, I went to the bank to open my nth savings account. When suddenly:

Bank Personnel: You don't have a middle name, why did you put a M.I. here?
Me: Pardon?
Bank Personnel: Look at your birth certificate. It states here that you don't have a middle name. That means you only need to put your name and surname or else I won't allow you to open a savings account in this firm.
Me: I'm sorry Ma'am. I didn't know. Let me erase and correct the documents.

I was really sad. It was like "Mom! Dad! What the hell were you thinking when you were there in the hospital? Don't you know that I need a middle name? I want to hit your faces one after the other, back to back!"

My world fell apart in a brief period of time. All of life's loneliness, and miseries of living alone since first grade have resurfaced. Mom and Dad are pieces of jerks. That's the problem when you are not ready to raise a child. And since my birth was unexpected, they must be so worried and rattled, that they forgot to write a Middle Name in my birth certificate. Mom and Dad were irresponsible back then. My Birth Certificate shows that. I'm now having problems with my academic documents since I am using a complete name with an 'E' in the middle for all these years.

Agayyyyyy... Ang Sakit!

In bisaya or in the visayan dialect, the word agay is the counterpart of the english word ouch. I had my tooth removed this afternoon. Here it goes...

Dentist: Sabihin mo lang pag masakit ha...
Me: Okay doc...
Dentist: Ito na...basta dapat kalmado ka lang
Me: Okayy...
Dentist: Ito..Masakit ba?
Me: Wala doc. (I lied. There was a bit of pain. I thought I could carry it all the way because I am a man. At ang tunay na lalakit ay hindi nakakadama ng sakit. Bwahahahaha....)
Dentist: Good...

1...2...3... Half of my tooth was removed....

Me:Agayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy... Mama, tabanggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg.... Agayyyyyyyyyyyyyy.... Sakita uyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....

Note: I will share to you the true story next time. Not now...

FTMAG Tagged Me, Let's See...

I've seen so much about this stuff, the 'get to know me game' I mean, where bloggers are tagged by their fellow bloggers to answer a few questions. So, I think this is my turn. Thanks Mai Yang of The Flora The Most Awesome Goddess.

However, since I am not a law-abiding citizen (I am but not here.), I will put an end to this game. Therefore, I will not tag anyone. Hahaha...

11 Random Things About Me:

1) Mabait, maganda, at maunawain ba ang mga magulang niyo? Well, panis silang lahat sa mama ko. I think my mom is the best mom in the world. I always think about her and my sister.

2) My heart is half good and half bad. Meaning, I am sweet-tempered and at the same time, hot-tempered. I am really really kind, but when provoked, I am very very bad. Hindi ako takot makipagsuntokan! Pero huwag lang sa school. Takot akong ma-expel or ma-suspend. 

3) Wala akong bisyo. Hindi ako umiinom. Hindi nagyoyosi. Hindi nagpa-party party. Ang tanging bisyo ko lang ay ang palagiang pag-iisip sa babaeng pakakasalan ko.

4) I am a poor guy. I've got no place called home that's why me and my sister are living in different places, separately. Masaya naman kami. Asteeg yun! Nomads!

5) People who don't know me call me suplado. Maraming tao ang medyo ilang sa akin kasi yung mukha ko hindi friendly. Wew. Tapos tahimik lang ako. Kunwarian lang yun para maka-attract ng babae. I talk very often pag may gustong makipag-usap.

6) I am very much dedicated to any work (with pay of course) but if some people try to impede my work or pag-defective yung boss, nakakawala ng gana yun, so I quit right away. Pero never akong nag-quit sa publication namin. I like this one.

7) I am real. I show to my friends, to my family, and to anyone who I am. They know that I am a certified corny joker. But they also know that I'm a man with principle. Pag may nakita akong problema, sinasabi ko talaga, at pag-sobra na, nagagalit talaga ako.

8) Two and half years na akong single. Aksaya ng pera at panahon kasi pag may nobya. I've got to finish my studies first because I am a very ambitious man. And a man like me does not need any woman as of this moment. Pero hindi ko ipagkakailang may mga random girls ako. Okay lang rin naman sa kanila so okay lang din sa akin.

9) BS Geology student ako. So medyo masasagot ko ang mga katanugan ninyo about earth sa abot ng makakaya ko. Mahirap maging BS Geo. Maliban sa classroom, palagi kaming may field activities. Muntik ko nang makalimutan, features editor ako ng weekly publication namin.

10) I can understand all forms of media. Nakakaintindi ako pag nag-uusap kami ng website developer namin. I can distinguish a good lay-out from the bad one. I know if which one is a good newspaper. At nagagalak ako pag ginagamit nila ang mga suhestiyon ko. Because everytime I make a suggestion, I do research first para naman hindi ako mapahiya.

11) Feeling artist ako. Kaya naman pag-nagpi-paint ang mga artists namin, sumasabay ako. Pero matagal ko nang alam ito --> The Writer is the Artist Himself. As of this moment, I am honing my craft in creative writing. Hindi artists ang mga jourrnalists. Pero artists ang mga creative writers.

Questions of FTMAG

Why do think you're tagged in this game?
--> Na-tag ako dahil wala kanang ibang ma-tag.
What is your ideal girl/guy?
--> Ideal girl? sa utak lang yun. Wala naman talagang ganun eh. "Dahil kapag ang pag-ibig sumagi sa puso ninoman, hahamakin ang lahat makamit ka lamang."
What turns you off (girl/guy)?
--> I can hardly understand the question. Let me try, matu-turn off ako pag medyo madaldal yung babae tapos walang content yung sinasabi.
Do you believe in love and marriage?
--> Ay aba eh, oo naman. Kung walang love, wala ka ngayon Mai Yang. Naniniwala ako sa pag-ibig at kasal. Teka, nasabi ko na ba sayong may pakakasalan na ako? Pero one-sided lang in my part.
What would you do if you only have 24hours left in your life?
--> bobombahan ko ang kulungan ng mga Ampatuan. Tapos, makikipag-usap ako sa mga MILF and NPA. Kakain kami sa Jolibee with my family. Tapos sasabihin ko sa babaeng pakakasalan ko na, "Will you make love with me?"
If you're to travel somewhere, name 3 persons you wanna bring along with and where?
--> Mama ko. Sister ko. Asawa ko.
When was your first kiss and who?
--> Secret.
What do you hate the most in a person?
--> I hate people who hate me. I give them chance though.
Who do you look up to the most?
--> Me. Sino pa ba? alangan ba naman si Barack Obama. Negro yun. Ngeeee... Si Noynoy? Ayaw ko dun. Wala na yung buhok sa ulo.
How do you see yourself 5 years from now?
--> Earning much money. May bahay na at wheels! Mag-add ka pa ng two years at kasalan na.
If you have something to say to the tagger (that is me), what would it be?
--> Mai Yang, alam mo, para kang ponkan.

Kung May Merong Tayo (Sana Naman)...

(Note: This is just nothing. I was bored while making a technical report so I made this one. This entry, which is in a form of a poem but not really a poem at all, is dedicated to ehemmm...)

Habang may sikat pa ang araw, tinitingnan kita ng pa-unti-unti
Nung ika'y umalis, nagsisisi kung bakit di nalang kita tinitigan
Pero kung tinitigan kita baka mag-freak out ka, so mali yun
So, siguro okay lang na pa-unti-unti, paminsan-minsan

Alas unse kagabi, maliban sa dota, iniisip kita
Ramdam ko ang yung pagtawa, ang kislap ng yung mata
Alas dose na, ano ba, di ako makatulog, ikaw kasi eh
Ano ka ba? umalis ka nga sa isipan ko. Ayaw ko magka-stress

Oh, ala-una na ng madaling araw, ika'y hanap hanap
Alas tres na't gusto na kitang makita. Ang tagal naman...
Alas singko na, puya't na ako, magkikita tayo mamaya
At nagkita nga tayo, kinumpleto't pinasaya mo ang araw ko.
