Boris Pasternak

“Fevrale dostat chernil i plakat,
Pisat O Fevrale navsnryd,
Poka grohochushaya slyakot
Vesnoyu charnoyu gorit.”

I bought the album Begin to Hope by Regina Spektor way back primarily because of the songs Fidelity and Better. But then I found the song Apres Moi as one of my favorites in the album. Apparently, the Russian part is from a poem by Boris Pasternak, a Nobel Laureate in Literature in 1958. But not with this poem though. 😀

And after repeating the name over and over again, I somehow recall something else. I remember a tune. “It’s so familiar to me,” I said to myself. and then WHAM! It hit me! He was mentioned in one of the other songs that I just love to listen to: We Didn’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel!

“…Little Rock
Mickey Mantle

Looks like I just added another one to my “to know” and “to read” list.

Sana close kami para first name-basis. 😛 PEACE! 😀

sawa na?

di naman ako tipo ng tao na madaling magsawa. pero minsan talaga, i feel short-changed… or is it because of the feeling na i HAVE TO settle for ‘mediocre’ stuff or stuff that i don’t ‘love’ love? i think this is one of those days.

case in point: my new cellphone.

i broke my phone over a month ago and had to replace it. of course, when you go shopping for stuff, you get to see what’s available, what’s hi-tech and what’s worth every centavo you’re going to spend. i had my eye on lots of phones… but my pockets were somewhere else.

my wallet has always been the indicator of what i could have vs. what i wanted. i’ve always been the i’ll-buy-what-i-can-afford guy. so i usually end up with something that’s (a)best bang for the buck items or (b)things i just need, not what i want, or (c)both.

oo nga, meron ako ng kailangan ko pero di ko naman talaga gustong gusto. yun kaya yun? kaya ba nagsasawa na ako? or talagang nagtitiyaga lang ako? hay…

apologies first

i know i owe a whole lot of tags and awards from people. please bear with me… 🙂 i believe some blogs should be written with some thought but others need deep thought when writing. and a whole lot of grammar-checking! lolz… so to everyone whom i owe a reply/tag/award to, please be patient. 🙂 will try to keep up after the storm in the office is over.

thanks for understanding!!!

random thought: maganda o mabait?

everytime i have these conversations about break-ups and finding your ex having a new gf/bf, you often ask, “bakit niya ako pinagpalit?

when you see them, you immediately say, “mas maganda naman ako sa kaniya ah?“or when you see a ‘mismatched’ couple, you’d always say, “baka mabait yung guy/girl

but come to think of it, isn’t that what’s more important? hindi ba mas mahalaga talaga ang maging mabait kesa maging maganda?

or is it just because you’re fresh from a break-up, you tend to comfort yourself with disapproval of the other by saying things that are ‘significant’ to you? wala lang. random thought nga eh, diba?


nope, it isn’t the neighboring town of Smallville where you might find a Spice Girl or Bratz hanging around. 😛 (yeah, it’s a pathetic introductory sentence but what the heck! i can’t think with all that’s keeping me busy!) PoshVille is actually a small online ‘sideline’ of a friend who’s into selling laptop bags and sleeves for the ‘posh’ student or yuppie. 🙂

Posh is a real nice description for these babies coz they are quite smart and fashionable. the items come in really nice designs, simple patterns and shapes. so this might not be for you if you’re a loud person and likes bright stuff but what’s keeping you from adding a little ribbon here, stickers there, to personalize it a little? it becomes a canvass for you to get your creative mind started!

the sleeves are great for students, in my opinion. it’s a discreet sleeve you can just stow away in your backpack or maybe carry it around.  you don’t have to deal with that boring black or grey case/sleeve. plus, you don’t have to pull it out of the sleeve! open it up from the sides and voila! easy-access to your laptop and easily close and stash it away! 🙂 they come with a clutch bag that matches your folder/sleeve for your charger as well. see? pretty neat!!!

and surprisingly, the ones that i thought are for the ‘formal’ person, are the ones that i actually like for the fashionista! the laptop bags have a strap if you don’t want to carry them with one hand. just sling it over your shoulder and go! i like most here are the purple and green bags. they’re just so~ uber cute!!! 🙂

the items are reasonably priced. P700.00 for the sleeves and P800.00 for the bags. check ’em out, try ’em out!
