and i will remember her forever

she was a guest in one cultural event in Balay Kalinaw where my amateur self played violin as intermission. i was shaking with an involuntary vibrato. even i knew my performance was awful. but she applauded when i finished and told me, “that was wonderful! wonderful!” she reminded me of a lola so proud of her apo no matter what.

i will always remember her kindness in that brief moment i met her.

none other than Susan Calo-Medina was that ‘proud lola’.

a tag!!! (woot)

of course, the tag was from FB. kaso naisip ko, matagal-tagal na din ako hindi gumagawa ng ganito sa blog. 🙂 time to spread out again! 😀

Thanks to Iska for tagging me. hmmm… sino kaya may gusto gumawa nito? ah basta, bahala na kayo. 🙂


Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions. Pass it on to 20 people and include me. Try not to repeat a song title. It’s actually a lot harder than you think.

Pick Your Artist:

01. Are you male or female?
Pare Ko

02. Describe yourself:
Walanghiyang Pare Ko

i’m honest! peksman! :D

I’m actually a bit confused on why i got this award. (lol) hehehe… but it is touching and an honor to receive one from someone you actually look up to and admire for their writing. 🙂 thanks to witsandnuts for this meme… I DESERVE THIS (brag about it daw eh!)

Here are the rules:

When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real.

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!

Things that make me go “ahahaaaaay!” :P (I O U 2)

For me to be happy, I wish for

1.) a warm blanket in a cold morning
2.) music
3.) the internet
4.) glorious food! 🙂
5.) and a well-rested body. 🙂

hey, i’m smiling already! 😀

I O U (1)

yes. i owe a lot to people. never intended to do this but all the tags piled up. and in between them, work interfered (LOL). so in a last-ditch effort to save the tags (which i can’t pass on anymore), i’ll just write them and turn them into reminiscing points in my life in 2008. *deep breath* here we go…

whew! that’s one done!:D heehee… nobody said they have to come true right? i love to dream…

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!!!


di ko akalaing ako’y ka-award-award pala! 🙂 hahaha…

nakakataba talaga ng puso ang i-consider na ‘friend’ ng isang tao. pinaglalaanan ka ng oras, inuusyoso kung ano ang ginagawa mo, kinukumusta ka, nandiyan kapag nalulungkot ka o masaya. pero minsan, ang kaibigan sa malawak na mundo ng internet, cyberspace o ‘blogosphere’ man, hindi kailangang pisikal na nandiyan. ang pagbisita sa website o blog ay senyales ng pagka-interesado sa buhay ng tao. sa pagbabasa eh nakikilala mo ang isang tao ng di mo namamalayang madami ka na palang alam tungkol sa kaniya — paborito niyang pelikula, ayaw niyang ugali sa isang tao, hinahanap niya sa isang prospektib na jowa,  mga dinanas niya ngayong araw, sakit ng ulo, saya, kabaliwan, etc…

pero wala siya sa harapan mo. di mo maiyakan ang balikat niya, di mo maramdaman ang yakap niya pag malungkot ka. hindi siya tumatawa habang ikaw lang ang nanonood ng paborito mong pelikula sa TriNoma. hindi mo siya natatawagan basta-basta para yayaing magliwaliw sa Bonifacio High Street. pero kaibigan mo siya dahil nakilala mo siya at nakilala ka niya. hindi dahil magkasama kayo sa trabaho, sa paaralan, o kapitbahay. naging magkaibigan kayo dahil nagkakilala kayo sa malawak na mundo ng internet.

apologies ulit kay dhez dahil alam kong gusto niyang kumalat ang tag na ‘to. unfortunately, dead-end ako usually sa mga tag stuff. either na-tag na yung mga ita-tag ko or busy ang mga tina-tag ko. 😦 oh well, ganun yata talaga… kung may gustong mag-tuloy ng tag na ito (i.e. naawa sa akin), go! 🙂

Ronito Ronita

sounds peculiar? hindi ito typo. salamat kay jojie sa pag-tag sa akin at kay iRonnie for thinking of this getting to know you meme. it would be, once again, difficult for me to find a volunteer for this tag. haay… need to read more blogs and do less work! LOL anyway, the rules say:


How to Join?
[1] Fill up and submit the details of this form.
[2] Copy and post the rules to your blog. Include the “backward list” (a record of how the tag reached you) and add your name.
[3] Recruit for participants. Be sure to get their consent. Should they agree to join, add them to your “forward list” (bloggers you’ve convinced to join). Remind them to do item #1.

** Participants will be accepted until December 16 (Phil. time) only. On December 17, the organizer (iRonnie) will email to you the details of your Ronito/Ronita. Send him/her a Christmas greeting via E-cards preferably on December 25. Should time be a constraint, you can send it earlier.

My Backward Link List:
iRonnieChuvanessJojitah – Bursky – add your name here


step 3 seems optional, if i read it right. i can tag people but they won’t necessarily forced to join. wala rin namang “convincing needed” na naka-mention. it’s entirely voluntary. so right now, i’ll just hunt for people who are willing to join. 🙂
