Ang unlimitxt. Bow.

Syet. Puno nanaman ang inbox ko ng mga kung ano – anong mga quotations ng mga kung sino – sino, mga inspirational messages at mga love ek-ek.

May mga message na magaling mambola, yung tipong kakabahan ka dahil ang baka sumunod na message ay mensahe ng pangungutang. Tulad na lamang nito:

If you stood in front of a large mirror and held-up 11 roses in front of you…

you would see…

12 of the most beautiful things in the world.

May mga mesahe din naman na kinukumpera ang pag-ibig sa isang bagay…

Loving is a lot like watching a 20 minute fireworks display.

Exciting.

Emotional.

Romantic.

Sweet.

Memorable.

But it also ends as dramatic as it begins to slowly fade into thin air. As much as you want to keep watching, there’s nothings to make it stay.

In the end, all that’s left is a starless night & the fact that in this life, good things never seem to last.

*

“Love is like handing someone a gun, having then point it at your heart & trusting then to never pull the trigger.” – Michael Gardner

*

“A cigarette is like falling in love… When one is within reach, it gives us a million reasons to smoke and makes us forget the one reason why we shouldn’t.”

Awww! Na-touch naman ako dun! Lalo na siguro kung malalaman mong may nagdonate sayo ng organs nila… Pero dahil nga text message to, wala kang kawala sa pick-up line!

Paano if 1 daysabi ni Doc you need a new nose or else di ka na makakahinga? Nag paopera ka. Nang matapos, ask mo kung sino ang donor…

My inabot na note, sabi: “Ingatan mo ilong ko. Luv, Mike Enriquez

Syempre sa text message hindi mawawal dyan yung mga bobo jokes o yung mga pick-up lines ng mga tanga. Isa ito sa paborito kong mga jokes kasi feeling ko ang talino ko! Wahahaha! Joke lang!

ANAK: Tay! Ano ba ang birdflu? Kasi maraming nabibiktima ng birdflu.

AMA: Kaya nga kita pinagaaral para matuto ka eh! Ang birdflu ay ang past tense ng birdfly!

At speaking of bobo… Sino ba ang pinaka sikat nab obo sa pilipinas kundi si Erap?!

JINGOY: Dad, manganganak nap o misis ko!

ERAP: Dali! Tumwag ka ng ambulansya, dalin natin sa Jollibee!

JINGOY: Dad, bakit Jollibee???

ERAP: may free delivery dun! XD

Bukod sa mga bobo ay meron ding mga bakla jokes. Pero hindi naman ginawa ang mga bakla jokes para siraan ang mga bakla o i-degrade sila. Nakakatawa lang talaga. Example:

2 men drinking:

ALFRED: Pare, bakit hanggang ngayon, wala ka paring jowa? Tingnan mo ko, nakakailan na. Wala ka bang natitipuhan?

LOUIE: (blushed) Meron. Manhid ka lang kasi! J

Nahalata nyo ba, usong uso ngayon sa text yung mga nag-uusap na jokes. Tulad nga niyang nasa taas. Pero, bukod diyan nagiging popular narin ang mga quotations… Yung tipong nanggaling mismo sa sa isang speaker.

“It’s not who I am underneath, it is what I do that defines me.” –Batman

“Iniisip nila ay hindi mahalaga, mahal kita maging… sino ka man…” –Robin

Astig noh! Batman and Robin! Robin Padilla! Wahaha!

Meron din namang mga message na wari ba ay may patago ng attensyon:

I know you are so busy. But for 3 seconds think of me.

1…

2…

3…

So sweet, thanks! Now you can continue with what you were doing. J

Syempre pah! Para saan ang mga mesahe kung hindi mo rin lang mailalabas ang kalibugan mo dito…

Doing SEX by profession:

Doctors do it in ORDER;

Dentists do it ORALLY;

Nurse do it with PATIENCE;

Medtech do it by REQUEST;

Engineers do it MATHEMATICALLY;

Meron ding mga short stories na hinaluan ng irony.

A lonely frog calls a psychic hotline & asks what his future holds. The psychic says, “You will meet a girl who would want to know everything about you.”

The frog was excited. “That’s great! Will I meet her in a party?”

The psychic replied, “No, in a biology class.”

At meron din namang short story lang talaga… yan ay kung matatwag nyo syang istorya!

One day, a girl and a boy was talking.

The girl said: Musta ka na?

The boy replied: eto ok lang… kaw?

Girl: Ok lang din…

At yun na nga…

Ok naman pala silang dalawa!

Pero eto ang paborito ko sa lahat!

One day a sadist, masochist, murderer, necrophile, zoophile and pyromaniac were taking in a psychia ward…

SADIST: Im bored! Why don’t we torture a cat???

ZOOPHILE: Yeah! We’ll torture it & then fuck it!

MURDERER: We’ll torture it, fuck it & then kill it!

NECROPHILE: We’ll toruture it, fuck it, kill it & fuck it again!

PYROMANIAC: Yeah! Then we’ll burn the cat!

… sudden silence …

Then all asked the masochist, why he didn’t say anything…

MASOCHIST: Meow!

Kaya yung mga unlimited sa globe dyan! Text nyo na ko! Pewo, mas maganda kung bibigyan nyo rin ako ng load!

Night night po! MMMMUUUAAAHH!!!

habulin mong humahabol sakin

Saturday, September 23, 2006

The flood lights blinded the man on jeans with his tops tucked inside his pants. He deliberately covered his eyes with the bundle of paper he's holding. The flood light operator must have noticed this and lowered the ilumination.

He was a bit shaky, but managed to showed the crowd his composure. He lifted the microphone hoping that each word that he would be saying will be the ones that should be said.

But he was wrong! Dead wrong! Moments later he was talking non-sense! The crowed murmured - disgusted by what the man in jeans had said.

Suddenly, an old lady approximately on her late 70s, from the crowd stood up with her walking stick waving up high like a wild horse on amphetamines, she was babling curses to the man.

Damuho ka! Shouted the lady. Matha Fuckur! she continued.

The man pulled a gun from his pocket. And without a warning, pulled the trigger. BANG! the gun exploded, the bullet soared from the barrel and into the lady's chest.

A second had passed.. and no one had moved... two seconds... three... everyone was dumb struck with what they saw. They are thorn between the thought of being the next victim of the man on jeans and calling for help. Either of the two... they have no choice but to keep still.

The armed man stood still with the gun on his left hand, this time he can't keep his emotion... he was shaking. He opened his mouth, summoning all his spirits.

He broke the silence... with another BANG from his gun. He shot himself. There - lifeless.

Direk: OK Cut! Nice take! Pack-up na!

*

Alak, yosi atbp.

Its been a while na since our last inuman session, and i've been dying to sober up my self again. The feeling of dizziness is heaven and the ocassional intestinal regurgitation is an aphrodiziac.

Right??? NO! Since when did dizziness become heaven? And vomiting -- and aphrodiziac??? Duh! I'll better check my "boohoo" at the door!

Huhuhu! I soo miss the rooftop, the midnight air, the pep talk, the bullshitting, the jokes-are-half-meant, the jokes, the joker, the dancing, the POLE dancing, the pole dancing and falling (ROTFL) and of course the binder of them all:

Glory Hole???

Haha! Anyways, I have A LOT of pending post... Like the "kwentuhan ko kayo" post and "Life's Toughest questions" and to tell you, i think I'll be changing my layout again... hmmm... probably next week. But the template i'll be using woudn't be a new one.

I guess I'll end this post here... leaving you with this question:

If you were given the chance to choose the world's 8th wonder, what would it be and why?

Someone Needs an Anger Management

Tuesday, September 19, 2006

www.nakakainis.com

May mga taong nakakainis talaga. Yung tipong wala naman silang ginagawa sayo pero nag iinit ang dugo mo sa kanila. Yung mga kasong ganito, hindi ko gaano pinapahalata yung inis ko sa kanila since baka ako ang lumabas na masama.

Pero yung mga taong papam-pam, epal, jurot, at kung ano-ano pang nakakainis na ugali, ay nakuh! Etong sayo!

If you can be a little bad ass… I can be a really big bad ass!

www.pakshet.net

Syempre kung may nakakainis… may mas matindi pa jan! Sila ang ang mga pakshet. Pero wala naman akong kilalan pakshet as of the moment… ang tunay na pakshet para sakin ay ang BAHA! Oo! Umulan kasi ng malakas, nasa Sangley Naval Base kasi kami kanina (inspiring military poh ako… joke!) Tapos biglang umulan ng malakas kaya ayun nag pa-tila muna kami ng ulan at nang lumabas kami ng bahay… Goodluck! SULONG MGA KAPATID… sa baha!

www.taena.ph

Alas dose na pala… dapat alas syete bukas na Sangley na ulet ako. Hindi na nga ako pumapasok sa eskwela dahil lang dito sa ginagawa kong ito. Mahirap kasi kapag in-demand ka talaga! Haha! Pucha nahahawa ako ng kayabangan…

At speaking of mayayabang… naasar talaga ako sa mga mayayabang… lalo na yung mga wala namang ipagmamayabang tapos kung magmalaki kala mo kung sino. Pucha. Ang sarap sarguhin ng mga mukha nung mga ganong tao.

www.friendster.com/reklamador

Lahat naman kami napapagod. Lahat kami sumasakit ang katawan. Pero reklamo parin! Pwede nya nang palitan si Archie dun sa Wazzup wazzup… pero wag na… baka lalong bumaba ang rating ng show! Haha. Mabait naman sya… pero ewan ko ba… sanay lang talaga ako na maging masunurin at madalang magreklamo (hihihi). Rob is a good boy kasi.

Buhey Haaaaay Skul

Friday, September 15, 2006

Masarap alalahanin ang nakaraan… tulad na lamang ng haaaay-skul layf.

Pers Yir

Noong mga unang araw ng klase, syempre wala pa ako masyadong ka-kilala maliban na lamang doon sa mga datihan ko nang kamag-aral sa elementarya. Si Dyerowm ang kasama ko noon… medyo natagalan din kami bago nag karoon ng bagong kaibigan, siguro mga 20 minuto pagkatapos ng plag seremoni. Ang pangalan ng nyu prend namin ay Tsolo. Nakakatawa tong si Tsolo at mapag-trip… Matapos noon ay dumami na ang aking mga kaibigan tulad nina Roberto, pero mas kilala siya bilang Bong. Sina Rasel, Dyan Dyeyk, Antoni, Heysel, Cleo at marami pang iba.

Noong pers yir din ako naging aktib sa mga isteyds pley. Mga kung ano-anong rowl ang ginanapan ko noon. Na ayoko nang alalahanin pah.

At syempre dahil ang edad namin ay trese, ito narin ang panahon kung saan ang mga hormowns ay naliligalig – “Reydying Hormowns” kung aming tawagin. Mga ligawan mowments, gimiks, at kung ano-ano pang traying-hard tu bi an adolt aktibitis.

Sa panahon ding ito nagtapos ang pagkakaibigan namin ni Tsolo, dahil kay Nikki at dahil din sa kanya.

Change Topic.

Sekond Yir

Portin yir old na ‘ko bay dis taym. Muli akong nahilig ako sa Gowst Fayter. Nangolekta ako ng mga teks, pero yung mga reyr lang ang kinukulekta ko at inilagay ko pa ito sa isang protektib album. Hihi. Nakakatawang isipin.

Hindi lamang Gowst Fayter ang nakahiligan ko, pati narin Pokemon! Hihi! Tinangka ko ngang hanapin ang mga guhit ko ni Pikatsu, Balbasor, Dyiglipaf at iba pang karakter dito pero hindi ko na mahanap… Malamang ito ay nasigaan ko na dati pa. Hehe.

Sa mga pradeyks naman ang hindi ko makalilimutan ay ang aming myusik bidyo kung saan ako ang gumanap na “broken harted” na lalaki at naghahanap ng babaeng kakarelasyonin (kamusta naman ang term koh). Kiss Me ang bidyo namin noon. Ahehehe!

Nag lebel-ap din ang aking pagiging isteyds actor, dahil gumanap ako bilang meydyor karakter sa isang pagtatanghal kung saan ako si Tumago ang kontra bida sa buhay nina Malakas at Maganda. Sa tunay na buhay si Malakas ay kasalukuyang nasa Amerika at piloto sa AAF o ang Amerikan Er Fors, habang si Maganda naman ay nasa Seynt Luwi Unibersiti sa Baguio at pinilipilit tapusin ang kursong Kemikal Indyiniring.

Dito rin una akong nag ka pimpol sa noo. Paksiyet.

Terd Yir

Isa sa mga hindi ko malilimutan ang aking terd yir sa baste. ϋber saya talaga netoh! Dahil naging close kami ni Hero (hindi yung panget na artista ha), at nag-karon din kami ng sobrang COOL na tropa… Tinawag namin itong Thrashers®. Sikat ang grupo namin sa Baste… at kinatatakutan ng mga guro pati narin ng mga pari na nagpapalakad ditoh. Hehehe!

Isa sa mga hindi ko malilimutan ay ang pag papakita ng Derrrteeh Fingas ng aming ka tropa na si Bing sa isang class picture. Bwahahaha! Dahil ditto, ay hindi tuloy na release yung “bloopers” bersyon ng mga larawan. Hehehe.

At dahil nga astig kami, ay hindi na kami pumasok sa klase matapos ng piktsuran at dumaretso sa kantin para kumain ng Lugaw™. Wahihi!

Na riyalays ko tuloy na mas masarap pala kumain ng Lugaw™ lalo na’t sasamahan mo ng kalokohan.

Mabuti na lamang at mabait ang aming adbayser… (Sa Ateneyo na yata siya nagtuturo ngayon).

Hindi ko rin makakalimutan ang mga pradyekts namin sa Adbertaysing kung saan gumawa kami ng isang komersial. At syempre ang dyaryo namin para sa Dyornalisim, kung saan ako ang editor-in-tsip.

Mas naging aktib pa ako dahil hindi lamang sa piling manonoood ako nakapag perporm noon, dahil noong pawndeysyon dey, kami ay nakapag-sayaw at nakapag perporm ng maigsing dula sa harap ng buong Sebastinian Community.

Noong terd yir ako, ay sumali din ako sa COCC o ang hmmmm…. Shet nakalimutan ko na mining nun. Hehehe. Isang taon din akong nag push-aps, nag dak-wok, nag-pumps (hihi), gumapang (hihi ulet) at kumanta ng “Baboy ng Annex taon-taon tumataba!” (hihi nanaman).

At dahil ako’y isang magaling na kadete…

Port Yir

Ako ay naging Kampani Eksekyutib Opiser ng Alpha Kampani. Malufet ako noon… wag mo akong titingnan ng masama habang treyning dahil mag hihintay sayo si satanas para sa iyong “hell day”. Hihihi! Jowk lang! Dyastifayd ang mga desisyon ko.

Bise-presidente ako ng klase. Pero wala naman akong natandaang ginawa ko namag papaunlad sa bayan. Hehe… pero na tandaan ko noon nung pinagtanggol ko ang aking mga mahal na kamag-aral sa mga maling pamamalakad ng aming principal.

Syempre mas naging “nakakatuwa” kami noon. Halos lahat ng tiser ay may bansag. Si Hoopskiri (dahil sa kanyang epilyido), Sharky (dahil sa kanyang matutulis na ngipin na animo’y stalactites sa caves), Pegasus (self explanatory), Bullshitting (yung titser namin na nakipag bullshitting – open forum), Palaka (obyus din to) at si Karot (dahil sa matulis nyang baba).

Kasali din ako sa pep squad. Sa field demo at sa iba’t iba pang mga kachukaran nong hayskul.

Hindi ko malilimutan ang aming retrit noon sa Angel’s Hills sa Tagaytay, dahil sa masasayang tagpo. Unang gabi, nilagyan ng syeybing krim ng aking kaklase ang ulo ng isa pa naming kaklase. Hehe. Binidyuhan ng isa naming klasmeyt ang isa pa naming klasmeyt habang naliligo ng hindi nya alam. Hehehe. Pinagalitan ako ng aking adbayser dahil nag takbuhan kami ni nung klasmeyt ko sa corridor ng retrit haws sa disoras ng gabi. Hehehe ulit.

Hanggang dito nalamang… ang pagkukuwento ko ng aking hayskul layf dahil natatamad na akong mag tayp. Pero sana wag kang tamarin mag koment. ϋ

PS: Meron paring tindang Lugaw™ sa kantin hanggang ngayon, ngunit hindi na ganong kaaktibo ang Thrashers® dahil medyo nagkaroon na ng mga sari-sariling buhey.

Life's 25 Toughest Questions - Answered!

Friday, September 08, 2006

From Reader’s Digest Asia May 2006

By Jeanne Marie Laskas

This is a two part post special. I suggest that you read this post (and the next post) verbatim, not only because it took me awhile to type the whole of this, but also for the fact that we can all speak about at least a question or two from the list.

Love and Marriage

1 Can love really last a lifetime?

Absolutely – but only if you chuck the fairy tale of living happily ever after. A team of scientists recently found that romantic love involves chemical changes in the brain that last 12 to 18 months. After that, you and your partner are on your own. Relationships require maintenance. Pay a visit to a nursing home if you want to see proof of lasting love. Recently I spoke to a man whose wife of 60 years was suffering from advance Alzheimer’s disease. He came to sit with her everyday and hold her hand.

She’s been my best friend since high school. We made a promise to stick together.

Now, that’s a love story.

2 Why do married folks begin to look like one another?

Watch any two people who like each other talking, and you’ll see a lot of mirroring. One smiles, and so does the other. One nods or raises her eyebrows, and so does the other. Faces are like melodies with a natural urge to stay in sync. Multiply those movements by several decades of marriage, all those years of simultaneous sagging and drooping, and it’s no wonder!

3 Can a marriage survive betrayal?

Yes. It takes time and work, but experts are pretty unanimous on this one. In her book The Monogamy Myth, Peggy Vaughn estimates that 60 percent of husbands and 40 percent of wives will have an affair at some point in their marriages. That’s no advertisement for straying – but the news is good for couples hoping to recover from devastating breaches of trust. The offended partner needs to make the choice to forgive – and learn to live with a memory that can’t simple be erased. Infidelity is never forgotten, but it can gradually fade into the murky background of strong, mature marriage.

Comic Question

4 Why does summer zoom by and winter drag on forever?

Because context defines experience. As Albert Einstein once said:

When you are courting a nice girl, an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder, a second seems like an hour.

5 Do animals really have sixth sense?

Or seventh or eight! A box jellyfish has 24 eyes, an earthworm’s entire body is covered with taste receptors, a cockroach can detect movement 2,000 times the diameter of a hydrogen atom – and your dog’s sense of smell is up to 100,000 times greater than yours (some dogs have been known to smell human cancers). It’s safe to say that animals experience a much different world than we do.

6 Why does the line you’re in always move the slowest?

Because you’re late for your kid’s band practice and you curse your luck and envy those speeding by. Conversely, when you’re in the fast line, unfettered by stress, you don’t even notice the poor schlubs in the slow lane. Good luck rarely commands one’s attention like a bad luck.

7 By what age should you know what to do in your life?

Any moment now. This used to be a question the young asked. Now it’s a quandary for baby boomers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that younger boomers have abandoned the American ideal of picking a job and sticking with it. Between the ages of 18 and 36, these boomers held an average of 9.6 jobs. That’s a lot of exploration. The wisdom of elders in all cultures seems to be this: There’s nothing to do with a life but live it. As Ghandi pointed out,

Almost anything you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

8 Where do traffic jams come from?

Scientist are hard at work on this one, studying computer models of the physics of gridlock and inventing all new traffic light algorithms. Some of them postulate that the traffic are influenced by the same cyclical forces that cause waves in the ocean. For the average commuter, though, it may be helpful to think of it this way: congestion. There are just too many darn people trying to do the same thing at once. (Flush every toilet in a single office building simultaneously, and see what happens). All of this by way of sating: Buy a newspaper, load up some favourite tunes on your mp3 player, and take the bus.

Working for the Man

9 When is your future behind you?

When you stop chasing your dreams. So don’t stop!

10 Do you have to love your job?

No. Love your children, your spouse and your country. Love your parents, your neighbor and your dog. Loving is too important an emotion to attach to the way you make a living. But it’s OK to strive for satisfaction. According to recent Haris Poll, across America 59 percent of workers say they are extremely, somewhat or slightly satisfied with their jobs, but depressing 33 percent feel as if they’ve reached a career dead end. If you’re among the latter and thinking about a new job, consider the fact that employees in small firms said they felt more engaged in their work than their corporate counterparts did.

Families and Friends

11 Can a man and a woman ever just be friends?

For a short time perhaps. Making the friendship last requires that you fins each other at least vaguely repulsive. Good luck!

12 When do you take away Grandpa’s car keys?

The American Medical Association says safe driving has more to do with functional ability than age. True, seniors are risked for reduced vision, hearing loss and impairments associated with arthritis – but all of these conditions depend on the individual. So when it seems that Pop is becoming a danger to himself and to others, tell him straight. Point out that his reactions have slowed or his judgment is losing its edge. Suggest he not drive anymore. Be firm, but at the same time, don’t treat him like a child. Allow him his dignity. Offer him a ride.

13 Do siblings who fight really end up liking each other?

I surveyed my older sisters, both whom have vivid memories of how I tripped, pummeled and whacked them with various large plastic dolls (hey they started it – they teased me!), and both confirmed my suspicion that nowadays they like me just fine. I sure like them. All the experts will tell you that fighting among the siblings is normal. The key is how parents handle it. Rule no. 1: Don’t take sides. Never get into a discussion of who started what or what is more fair. Stop fights with a time-out for all offenders. My mother would send us to separate rooms. So we invented string phones and pulley system to transport necessary treats and toys. And what ever we were fighting about was forgotten.

14 How do you know when to end a friendship?

As soon as you get that sneaking suspicion that it never really began.

On the next post, questions 15 to 25 about you, the kids, money and morals will be answered. Plus the Life’s Ultimate Question will be revealed and answered! So visit Erase and Rewind regularly for updates!

And so my 13th ecstasy has arrived. I’ll be sticking on this one like glue on valium, running on 100kph on a freeway.

Talk about intelligent comparison.

This

Oh yeah, so I have nothing in mind to blog about. As if this kind of “thing” is new. I really hate it when I badly needed to put across my emotion and I end up sitting in front of my box, staring at my so called “minimum radiation” monitor – empty. I lost the thoughts I had organized and my enthusiasm.

That

Today, we started our dance rehearsal that we’re going to perform on the 20th of September. I had the music mixed last night, which lasted for about a couple of hours: 7:30 pm till 12:30 am – now that’s what I call mixing!

Anyways, our practice went smoothly. We’ve already completed 30 seconds from the 7 minutes allotment. Yeehee!

Those

After our dance rehearsal, I went to Novo, a local apparel shop to get a new pair of jogging pants, sadly, they don’t have any. So, I just went home and did this skin. Come 4:00 pm, I went to SM to get the pair of shoes I’ve been dying about for the last 3 weeks. But luck seems to be not on my way, coz they don’t have my size (huhu), I end up buying from another shop, which am not a fan of.

What is forgiving?

"It is the fragrance that the flowers give when they are crushed." And so, forgiving would mean that bringing out the best in ourselves.

For me, forgiving is/was never easy. It is hard as asking for forgiveness only this time, we dont have any pride to swallow.

One key ingredient in forgiving is forgetting. I believe that we can never forgive unless we keep records of the wrong doings other people did to us. The matrix of life comes at point, we learn from it... yet we need to forget it.

What is the truth?

As made popular by the famous TV series "The X-files," "The truth is out there." And the journalist are after the truth too.

Is the truth something that wouldn't hurt us but would do harm to others? Is the truth something to be hidden or is something that should always be told?

We all have skeletons hidden inside our closets. Some may stink like a dug graveyard fresh with decaying remains of human and some may be as light as a simple I Love You when he/she was not looking.

What is life?

Some say that miracles happen in our daily life. I say that life itself is a miracle.

In my 21 years of living in this planet called Earth (Geia), I have never found my self deeply contemplating on what I had accomplished. Its not that I dont have time or can't summon my memories... Its because I was afraid that I might found out that I have failed -- that I haven't succeeded much in life.

Before I go, let me give you my dear readers some things to ponder:

  • Give me 5 female names that ends with letter 'O.'
