wanna bag of nips

>> Wednesday, May 23

This song just came into my head.. i donnu y... hehhe

Wanna see what happens in a bag of Nips?
What goes on before they touch my lips?
They make a rainbow... (Chololate Nips)
A choco rainbow... (Chocolate Nips)
And then they color all the flowers and they paint the trees
So sweet and delicious look at all those bees
When I want fun I get a bag of Nips and make a rainbow!
Nips... Nips!

Around Cebu in two days

It's Saturday and we're off to Cebu in a fastcraft from Tampi to Bato around 7:40 in the morning. With only a glass of oatmeal for breakfast I was still a bit nervous of the trip. I might get sick or what (since I'm still not used to travelling a lot) but I have E.M.A. with me so what the heck, I brave the idea of going to Cebu in a bus.

After about 4 long hours sitting in a bus with my head about to explode and praying to God to spare me the agony of throwing up in front of many people, the sign "Welcome to Cebu City" was a sight to see.

We spent the whole afternoon at Ayala and SM, stuffing our faces with every food we can get our hands on, from Dimsum Break (lunch) to Max's Fried Chicken (dinner) with sweets here and there in between.. hmmm... just thinking of it makes me yearn to go back there. teehee...

Sunday morning, we had to wake up a bit early again for our trip to Kawasan (in Badian, try looking at the map..). It's another 3.5-hour travel back southwest of Cebu. We took the Librando bus (as adviced by Orven 'cause it would take us directly to the place) not knowing it would make a stop-over somwhere, so we had to wait for a couple of minutes. Finally we went on with the trip. Trying to take my mind of the long bus ride, I took a nap confident that E.M.A. wont doze off too. So after about 120 km of bumps and a freakin' headache, we finally reached Kawasan.. whew.. what a relief..

E.M.A. and I decided to walk to the falls since they said it's just a "walking distance." To my dismay, it's absolutely not [sighs]. It's a long walk to the falls, not to mention the slippery road and the back-breaking, thigh-aching climb up towards the second falls (the first one is already full of bakasyonistas). Finally, we arrived. The familiar faces of Marlon and the others were so relieving to see.

The water was so cool and refreshing. Swimming is definitely a must in Kawasan. The place is great, the food was delicious (thanks to Mia), and the company is fun. All the aches and pains and bumps along the way were all worth this.

I'm back at work now... but the two-day trip with E.M.A. was just the break we both needed from all those months of working... where to next babz? :)

Way Back Into Love

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking for someone to shed some light
Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end
oh, oh, oh

There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end
oh, oh, oh


The Seven Deadly Sins

>> Thursday, May 17

"Vanity is an excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise."

..Or if you prefer: Pride - Mother of all sins. First one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

- Vanity is linked with the color violet.
- Peacocks are symbols of vanity as well, therefore peacock feather is used as an inspiration for the "frame".
- Background is being desertish (plus the dead tree)... Vain people usually never see any beauty in the world, but only in themselves... That is why everything around them, sooner or later, dies.

"Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, orsituation."

Envy means much more than just a wish to have something someone else has. It means also ACTING AGAINST that person,"revenging" in a way, trying to take the "object of our desire" away fromthem, or backstabbing them in some way etc. that is why it can also be the deadliestsymbolism:
- snake is connected with cunning and doingsomething behind one's back
- poison ivy leaf in the frame (and the column)- maybe just a word play.

"Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body."
The theme: As you can see, from my Lust sketch I have only kept the pose, but totally changed the face. I think that this one fits the topic better.
I see Lust as being concentrated on yourself, being "drowned in your own world" kind of way, rather than seducting and being "flirty" (and this look was used in the sketch)
About the symbolism:Lust is connected with blue, but it's too "cold", and therefore changed to red - connection with the color of flame, warmth. Although not connected with love.
The frame - uses the flame pattern... flame -> burning desire -> lust
The waterfall - something rapid, unpredictable, not controlable.

"Greed, also called Avarice or Covetousness, is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual."

"Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work"

This is the fifth from the Seven Deadly Sins series.


- She is sitting on a swing and blowing bubbles: it's a symbol of wasting your time on insignificant things; idleness

- She is placed above the ground, in the sky: symbol of being separated from Earth and mundane htings (like work etc)

- Feathers: they symbolize something sleepy and lazy

- Color: light blue is also a color of sleepiness and idleness

"Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires."

Character is aesthetic, pretty and (in her way) attractive.

Some symbolic explanations:
Abundance of textiles - this sin not only as eating and drinking, but consuming in it's wider meaning, such as buying and gathering useless things etc
Grapes - "luxury" goods, connected with lavish parties (in ancient times) etc
The pink colour theme - grapes, sweets etc

Wrath - Inappropriate feelings of hatred and anger. (...) Impatience with the law, or seeking revenge outside of justice, such as with unnecessary vigilantism. Wishing to do evil or harm to others."

The colour theme - the colours red, orange, black ->fire -> destruction
Lightning (in the frame and background)- something destructive, rapid, uncontrollable
The hairstyle - another reference to fire
The make-up - a reference to battle marks (face painting etc)
The feathers - ("sharp" rather than soft and fluffy); in this form they bare a resemblance to tribes -> Wrath seen as something wild and primal.
The whip she is holding - a symbol of power
The shattered earth - the influence Wrath has on the world.

No one to blame

>> Saturday, May 12

Nothing to do…
Nothing to lose…
No one to blame
For this path that I chose
I do make mistakes
I tend to lose my way
With no one to blame
But this life of despair
Time seems so long
When I’ve got nothing to do
When my life seems so empty
And the silence steals my sanity
This empty space of nothingness
Seems to run forever
Yet my time seems ending
And I’ve got nothing to share
The loud echo of silence
Screams the sounds of sorrow
Walking in the path of uncertainty
With only the black night to guide me


wla lang...

I'm bored and I'm tired... these new policies we have to follow sucks the life out of me like Dementors do (in their case, happiness). This "prison camp" is guarded with so much Dementors that every day what's left of my sanity is taken away bit by bit. I can't blame the people around me if they think I'm bitchy these days. This prison camp sucks.. but as Lurchie said I have to find another (much better) work before leaving this place of suffering. Ok I'm rambling again... I have a hundred reasons to leave this place, but still have a thousand reasons to stay... hmph... I'm going insane.

I have a new puppy (a milllion thank yous to Daphne). Her name's Odie... She's a half dachshund–half something... She's sooooo cute, with adorable eyes, and a sweet face. I'll post some pixies later.. teeeehehehehe

Oohh... my birthday's coming up… I'm planning to go to Cebu next week and then to Kawasan, if nothing else would prevent me from going. (Who knows...)

My mind's in whirl right now.. I can't seem to keep things in order... til later...Am i making sense at all? heheh


Bitter truth or sweetest lie

>> Tuesday, May 8

Sometimes it's not love... sometimes you've just become so attached that you developed a need for that person... just a need... not love... but you're too scared to admit it even to yourself...'cause you know that if you do, you might lose the only person that actually gives a damn about your life.

These words keep haunting me. What if this is true? One day you just realize that you don't really love that person. But you're in this relationship that you just don't have the guts to walk away from. Is that love when you can see your future together? Or is it merely just a need. A need so great that it blinds you... it blinds you to the point where love is only an illusion... Would you be happy? Could you both be happy?

Love cannot be measured. If someone loves you this much, should you also return that same degree of love? What if you just don't know how? What if you can't? What if you're not capable of loving that much? Would you still be happy or just obliged to be? So many questions... so many what ifs... Would you choose the bitter truth or the sweetest lie?

So tell me which one is real: "I love you because I need you" or "I need you because I love you"

RockYou FXText - Get Your Own


blah blahs for 2day

Ok...I've been spending my time looking for cool widgets and trying to put some whatsitz in this blog.. and trying to make this blog more presentable... (as what I've said before, I'm still a newbie in this kind of thing...) please bear with me... teehee...

Just this morning I was cleaning my cabinet and found our old pictures... pictures of family and friends.. (later I'll post those pixies here)... I even found some old pixies of ma and pa, back when they were still.. should I say young? And some cute baby pix of yours truly (wow...i love myself...what more can I say)... ok ok.. I'll just post these pixies one of these days.... anwyz...

I get dizzy frequently these days... I wonder if it's still my blood pressure or blood sugar or sinusitis or what...I'm tired of gong to the hospital for a check-up. I hate hospitals... mind you... it makes me feel sicker and sicker each time I go into one. Today, my head hurts again.. and I get nauseous. Somebody just kill me please...I wanna go home...I still have about 6 more hours to go... I promised myself I wont have absences for this pay period.. You see we're planning to go somewhere and I'm on a tight budget. So I'm motivating myself to work, work, work...and absolutely no absences. I'll just take a break after all these $#%@.

Ok back to work.... oh and it's my bro's birthday tomorrow...
Happy birthday Bro!
