A while ago in the office, habang nag-eedit ako ng page ko, nakakita ako sa tumblr radar ng news headline about some Korean nationals held captive dito sa Pinas. Stupid of me, akala ko parang inaalala lang yung hostage taking incident na nangyari before.. (err, malay ko ba) So anyway, I scanned through the article and ignored the facts, little did I know that the hostage taking pala e nangyari today sa Quirino Grand Stand, Manila(ACK!!)
Ang lakas ng ulan at pauwi na kami ni camilahlah. Yung tv ng bus was tuned in sa GMA 7’s 24 oras and featured pa rin yung hostage taking incident. Ilang oras na palang captived yung mga HONGKONG nationals (mali yung sinabi nung una e.) And nagpakawala na rin ng ilang hostages yung Captain Senior Inspector Ronaldo Gonzales, mostly mga bata, may illnesses and mga matatanda. So bale 14-17 persons na lang yung natira dun,sabi sa news..
Kadalasan 1 and half hours biyahe ko from office to our house. But since its raining and raining causes traffic, 2hours ako inabot.. But I did not mind at all, naka-glue yung mata ko sa TV e.. Inaabangan ko bawat eksena ng hostage drama at mga sub par performances ng ating mga policemen. :D
Andaming pinakawalang bala. Rinig na rinig sa tv yung rat-rat ng rifles.. :| I think bandang 7pm, hinuli yung kapatid ni Mendoza kasi daw ACCESSORY TO THE CRIME siya dahil may dala-dala daw siya baril..Come on! That guy’s a policeman, so probably may dala siyang baril. Err.. ERR!!!
Ilang tear-gas na rin yung binato inside the bus, regardless of the fact na may mga buhay pa inside the bus. Palitan rin sila ng putok every now and then.. And by 9:15pm today, a sniper shot Captain Mendoza dead. I don’t know the exact figures, some got out alive (excluding yung mga unang nakalabas) and was rushed immediately to the nearest hospital. While the others are dead and that includes the hostage - taker. Here are their names: (wikipedia)

Grabe,nakiayon ang nature sa nangyari, it rained cat and dogs na para bang sinasabayan yung mga putok ng baril.. para ma-lessen yung ingay. Hay, I thought it would end up peacefully, but everyone was caught up in a lost-lost situation, brutality and force prevailed.
So I was talking to friend online then a thought popped inside my head
WHY NOT DO A FEATURED FRIEND THING-A-MA JIG?
Hahaha! Since pahirapan mag-isip ng ma-eentry dito sa tumblr, so gagawa na lang ako ng ka-charutan ko. Yeah yeah, I know this ain’t original, but the heck.. THIS IS INGENIUS STILL! Bleh. Popost ko na ang aking victim #1. Ajejeje.
DISCLAIMER: Every photo of a friend that I posted here was taken sa Facebook and every compliment that I throw should not be taken seriously or awkwardly. DI AKO TIBO. DI KO TRIP BABAE. *minsan* okay?! Apir.
Siguro panahon na para magtagalog ako dito sa Tumblr, ubos na dugo ko kakaenglish.. E ka-tense kaya, may mga foreigners rin ata akong followers? (Isa lang siguro. haha) So concerned lang ako sa kanila.. Charot.
Anyway highway, lakas ng kulog at kidlat.. Katakot talaga pag nasa pinakatuktok ka, ramdam mo lahat.

Nothing can ever compare to how BORED I am right now, this is not my lowest point.. (since I’m chatting with friends and everything.. hehe) but this day made me feel sad and pissed..
I chatted with a friend and she jokingly asked me where to buy MOTIVATION. I replied by saying that she shouldn’t ask me since I have no motivation left.. It’s ‘running dry’.. And yeah, that statement of mine made me realize that it’s true.. All my motivations have deserted me. Since I’m left with no work to do.
Now I’m thinking of for what reason am I going to work for? Money? DEFINITELY! Friends? CERTAINLY! Career? A BIG NO.
I’ve been working for almost 2 years and until now I can say that I haven’t reached the top of my career yet.. I sometimes envy friends and colleagues who earn triple my paycheck, those who went abroad, those who just bought a car, those who became team leaders, promoted.. those who travel monthly, etc. etc.
But what can I do? I’m stuck in a room full of conceit bubbles.. which are all coming from one person.. *secret* haha! I cannot go yet, health card payments are depriving me of freedom to look for a job. A fun job. A good paying job. A job with a nice boss. A job that’s near. A job.. A job.. pfft!
I’m not being dainty.. but I just wanted a job wherein I can settle for life.. :) just like marriage. Something that I can be committed to.. Something that I can grow old with doing the same thing..Something that gives back.. Something that I can LOVE. And not just do it for the sake of doing it. But to really LOVE it and enjoy.
this site kept me giddy for a while.. it’s on the creative writing directory already.. NEATO! ..and for these past few days, I tried squeezing my creative juice out of my pea-sized brains to come up with something ‘artsy’..and finally, I posted something decent on pluck. please please guys, do visit pluckmybrainstrings..
In addition, since I love to bargain and I love buying clothes at UKAY (only for practicality reasons).. my highschool friend, Daisy and I have put up an online shop for ukay lovers like us.. its still on a developing state, but hey.. you can check it out at
