frameless picture…

again a poetic line from GORA…

sleepless nights in Torino
look at the room
and there he is

i remember another line… a year ago
grave of the lost souls

donald peters, the naughty don… who cooked SINILAGANG!

the american who speaks my language – even chatting with me in Filipino/Tagalog!

with all the e-mails he sent me the last ten months… its only now im beginning to realize how amusing he is…

he claims he liked me, the moment he saw my picture on the bus with Emilia, Oliverka and Marcelle, going to Questura (in Turin).

he promises to do the following when he comes here… (i wonder when rach? hehe…)

1. magsisibak ng kahoy
2. harana
3. mag-iigib ng tubig
4. samahan ako mamalengke
5. etc.

told him, these are the olden days. but what the heck? its funny and sweet…

and i enjoyed chat sessions with him lately…

yes, its almost a year… and now he’s a friend…

music, car and the turtle

its taken from the car… going down from city at 2800 mts over the sea level towards 500 mts level so literally when you descend by the “highway” yo pass trough the clouds SILVERLINING THE CLOUDS

(direct quote from the turtle)

REM Song

first, we take manhatan, then we take Berlin

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I’m coming now I’m coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I’m guided by a signal in the heavens
I’m guided by this birthmark on my skin
I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I’d really like to live beside you, baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there moving through the station
I told you I told you I told you I was one of those

You loved me as a loser but now your worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me but you don’t have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I don’t like your fashion business, mister
I don’t like these drugs that keep you thin
I don’t like what happened to your sister
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night and now I’m ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Remember me, I used to live for music
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
It’s Father’s Day and everybody’s wounded
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


October Zodiac (from a Friend)

Loves to chat. Loves those who love them. Loves to takes things at the center. Inner and physical beauty. Lies but doesn’t pretend. Gets angry often. Treats friends importantly. Brave and fearless. Always making friends. Easily hurt but recovers easily. Daydreamer. Opinionated. Does not care to control emotions. Unpredictable. Extremely smart, but definitely the hottest AND sexiest of them all!

My legendary roommate at 6071 – Phuong – always tells me that I am a daydreamer. What surprises me is that whenever I read some zodiac or something like it, the word DAYDREAMER comes up.

Is Phuong a fortune teller? A female Shaman? A personality Guru?

Whatever, I cant help but smile when I remember her… her stories… and her massage.

I love my Phuong… unique as she is… I love her, indeed!

an old love song…

you’re the one that never lets me sleep
to my mind,
down to my soul
you touch my lips

you’re the one that i can’t wait to see
with you here by my side i’m in ecstasy

i am all alone without you
my days are dark without a glimpse of you
but now that you came into my life
i feel complete
the flowers bloom, my morning shines
and i can see

your love is like the sun
that lights up my whole world
i feel the warmth inside
your love is like the river
that flows down through my veins
i feel the chill inside


today, i was riding while riding the jeepney, i heard the song playin’ and suddenly i had flashes of my former BF – very funny man with a secret serious side…

its amazin to know such a person and more than ever, i know that i was not wrong in believing that he is a good man.
