S.T.U.P.I.D. me

i was so motivated at the beginning. now, i think it’s just not going to work.

three years ago, i started my graduate studies in the same department in the same college in the same university. i knew this was going to help me. i was aware that i only know *this much* (hold thumb and index fingers ver very very very very veeeeery close together) about remote sensing. so i wanted to learn. i wanted to be an academic. i wanted to help this country. i wanted to make a difference. i wanted to be an ‘expert’ and maybe raise my economic value in these times where a college degree is often not enough. i wanted to be a cut above the rest. ambition.

and i may have just fallen from that height.

take that DSLRs!!!


just sharing one of a few photos taken at the office. 😀 eclipse1

and this is from a point and shoot camera! woot!!! hahaha… well, we had a few ‘better’ cameras lying around but mine was the only working one. one friend lost his DSLR batteries, our Canon A570 (i think) had no batteries either. and our pro photographer was nowhere in sight! probably off to a different site taking the photos, too. so, armed with my Kodak C613, *click*



too bright


blurred photo


oooops… accidentally fired the camera


there we go!!! gotcha!

i’m fine without the tent

there’s this old joke about the Lone Ranger and Tonto that goes like this:

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep.
Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, “Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”

The Lone Ranger replies, “I see millions of stars.”

“What that tell you?” asked Tonto.

“that warm fuzzy feeling”

last night was one of the most wonderful evenings i had. it was a harry potter night! 🙂

and, well, i felt like i was a little kid again… or that person before who had this warm fuzzy feeling inside him whenever his crush would pass by. or maybe smelling her scent as she walked by. a person who was so tense but was calmed by her voice whenever she spoke, reassuring him that everything was alright. everything is OK…

i miss that feeling. and i felt it again last night. it was wonderful and magical. it makes me feel so alive!

but i’m snapped back into reality… but happy with the feeling, all the same. 🙂

zero = Zorro? i don’t think so

there has got to be something wrong with Coca-Cola. i absolutely understand their big lauch of Ely Buendia, Gaby dela Merced and Billy Crawford as their “Start with Zero” endorsers — Billy Crawford has made it big outside the local music scene, and Gaby is indeed a talented racing driver. and do i have to explain Ely?

my question is this: what is HE doing with a Coke Zero billboard along NLEX???

zero zorro

is this some kind of word/letter game where you change letters to form the end word? e.g. hero -> zero -> Zorro? it’s mind-boggling.

on maricar’s “moves”

i don’t and do understand. how did maricar reyes come back from the “extremely damaging” video that is Hayden’s doing? some points i have been thinking about the other days.

no, i’m not an entertainment writer in your favorite tabloid but an ordinary person who likes *chismis* and likes to think about these things.

we all know how the videos came about and how the very smart Senator bong revilla wanted to do this expose to make the victims come out. of course, there’s the senate hearing/investigation/waste of money and of course, the two opposing forces — Hayden and Katrina. in between all of this, there was the Brazilian model whose name i never got to know and never heard from ever and there’s maricar reyes.
