YOLANDA/HAIYAN: BANGUNGOT

Dear fellow Filipinos, we always claim to be stronger than any other countries around the world, we claim to be united especially in times like this, we claim that our spirit is  waterproof enduring the strongest typhoons and other natural disasters; WE CLAIM TOO MUCH FILIPINO PRIDE over everything but the irony is we seem to go on attacking out and bashing each other… I mean, asan ang “we are one family dun” we keep on stating opinions that aren’t really helpful sa mga nangyayari ngayon. NON SENSE! wala ng relevance yung mga rant ng iba. Judging people by the content of their facebook walls and instagram? How low can you be? Pati yun papatulan at gugugulan mo ng oras? Nagagalit ka dahil andaming nagmamayabang ng grocery ng donations o kaya litrato ng mga natulong?oo marring iiba ang intention nils sa pag litrato nun pero sa dami ng namatay at nasalanta, hindi po yun ang pinaka matinding problema na hinaharap ng ating bansa ngayon…  my opinion about it is I think it even encourages more people to donate also, sige let us say na tama yung nararamdaman mo na hindi pure ang intention niya kasi ang purpose niya is magmayabang, okay lang yun, sa pagyayabang naman niya makakatulong pa din siya sa mga taong gutom at walang bahay sa visayas. Keber ng makakatanggap nun kung yung nagbigay ba ng pagkain na natanggap nila eh puro ba ang intention, ang important ay basta makakain sila… alam mo, atleast sila kahit nag peke peke-an na bukal sa loob nila yung pagdonate na yun, atleast nakatulong sila… eh ikaw ba? makakatulong ba yung pag rant mo? diba hindi naman? Makakabuhay ba yun ng mga namatay sa affected area? Right now hindi natin kinikilatis kung pure ang intention ng isang tao or hindi, basta magtulong tulong tayo… proud Filipino ka pa man din pero sisiraan mo kadugo mo? para saan? dahil mas mabuti kang mamamayan? wala ka din pinagkaiba actually.

Also, please stop judging victims who have looted grocery stores,  ikaw nga, hindi ka nga lang makaligo ng isang araw at may mamiss ka lang na isang meal, halos mahihimatay ka na sa gutom at diri sa katawan mo eh…alalahanin po natin na ang mga nakikita natin ay iisang anggulo lamang ng nangyayari ngayon sa tacloban, hindi natin alam kung ano ang kabuuan… hindi na natin alam ang buong katotohanan… alam ko po na nasa bugso pa tayo ng galit sa ating basurang gobyerno bilang sariwang sariwa pa ang skandalo ni napoles at ang mga punyetang kasangkot na mga senador natin na mas makapal pa ang mukha sa pinagsamang libro ng chemistry at geometry, pero ang mas hindi ko kinakaya eh ang mga halos atakihin na sa puso sa pagbibigay ng opinion pero sila mismo yung mga hindi botante ng nakaraang president and senatorial eleksyon o kaya ang mga botante na nagpaloko at binoto ang idol na artista nila… feeling mo pag nag voice out ka  ng pikon mo sa skandalo ni napoles eh ang talino mo na nun pag nag rant ka? pero alam mo din ba na hindi yan nakakatulong sa mga kapatid natin na nasa visayas sa ngayon? One family pala eh… wag masyado mag marunong at magmatalino, hindi nakakatulong yan… nakakalungkot na tayong mga Pilipino mismo ang nagluklok sa bulok  at magnanakaw natin na mga opisyal na gutom na gutom sa kaban at ginto ng ating bansa ngunit big deal sa atin at gulat na gulat tayo na ang mga taong tunay na gutom at nasalanta na nag looting para lamang mabuhay at makaraos dahil hindi nabibigyan ng sapat na donasyon ay magnanakaw na agad?

Kinaiinis ko pa na madalas nalang  tuwing may sakuna, meron mga nalabas na fake facebook accounts na mag sa-status na “Filipino deserves it,they should die, eew” or  kaya the famous “iglesia ni kristo issue”it’s spreading now like a wildfire about them not allowing catholics to enter their church  and all the make up stories behind it… – all of those are obviously fake, wag niyo ng patulan at palakihin… hindi yun ang main issue dito… the one who created the page is just seeking for public anger to create common sentiments and opinions over the internet to create a buzz… It’s not even worth it… napapailing nalang ako sa taong gumagawa ng fake account para lang may mapatunayan against other race or religion. PATHETIC. Nakakahiya kayo! Asan ang Filipino spirit na pinagmamalaki niyo kung paulit ulit tayo nagpapaloko or nangloloko? 

 I just wish we just stop complaining about almost everything and just do all our means to help. Whether you choose to help loudly by posting your donations or whatsoever, I don’t care, just please help in anyway you can. Stop criticizing because we all have our different approach… Wag ng mag post ng negativity kung HINDI PO NAAYON. Hindi po ito patagisan kung sino may mas magandang opinion o kaya may mas matinding emosyon patunggkol sa ating mga kababayan, hindi rin po ito tungkol sa Filipino pride or katibayan nating mga Pilipino kumpera sa ibang bansa sa mga ganitong pagsubok, tungkol ito sa kwento ng mga taong nawalan, nasalanta, namatayan na nangangailangan ng ating tulong ng pangsamantala para maka ahon sa isang masamang bangungot.

Your life should be written by you

In order to live happy, do not let anyone dictate your life. Not even what your parents want you to be, or what your friends think what is prettier to you or who your boyfriend should be, it’ your life anyway, not theirs.  You are the writer of your life so you are responsible of your own happiness. Hold that pen of yours and write what you feel is suitable for you. Greatest lesson I’ve learned is that life is all about what you FEEL is right and not what you THINK is right. It’s the greatest feeling ever. Imagine doing what you really want? Doing things that you do not hold back anymore or get scared that someone might laugh at you or scold you. You’re just being who you are and who you want to be, no hesitation and just being utmost happy. As they say, enjoy your youth; you’ll never be younger than you are at this very moment.

I know most of you hates Miley Cyrus now but I’ll end this blog by quoting her “We can Stop” song:  (forgive me but I like the song, haha)

 “ It’s our party we can do what we want 
It’s our party we can say what we want 
It’s our party we can love who we want we can kiss who we want
we can see who we want” 

Empowering someone shouldn’t involve putting another down

I just can’t handle some irrational people who give out opinions irresponsibly. I saw a ‘friend’ on facebook posting quotes with photos that she asserts it to be “empowering” for a big woman like her. I mean, I have nothing against empowering and anything that is for positivity; in fact, I am a big woman too. But comparing big woman with skinny girls and give out statements like “ Men doesn’t like bones, they want curves” skinny woman are for dogs, skinny is ugly, etc. I mean common, you go that low just to feed your self-esteem? You blame society that they don’t accept you but aren’t you just the same? That skinny girly you just said was ugly is just as beautiful as the bigger girls you try to support. You can’t be body-positive by saying that one is better or more beautiful than the other. Just sayin’. 

Power of two

I don’t know if there’s anything nicer than finding someone who you can connect with. I believe that the whole point of being with someone is so you can talk about it and let go of everything. All your worries are safe with that person. It may not be resolved, but the feeling that someone understands you, is the greatest feeling ever. Even when you’re at your worst, they will still like you, even when you accidentally blurt out words that can actually hurt that person bad, they still have the want to speak to you and still, at the same time they will do everything just to make you feel better.

Because sometimes, as independent as you try to be, no matter how much you deny it to yourself, you just have this feeling that you need to know that you’re not as alone as you think you are.

Are we really that helpless?

‘Philippines’ - such a rich country, but sadly, it is ruled and filled with powerful greedy people. On the other hand, what’s actually worse is, It is also filled with people who doesn’t just stop complaining but does not actually do a thing about any issue concerning the country but just tweet away their “pa- smart” feelings. SImpleng pagtapon nga ng basura hindi niyo alam gawin eh, tapos lahat ng baha sa kapiligiran isisisi niyo sa gobyerno? Aren’t you feeling guilty as well?

Look around you little shits. YOU DID THIS. Napakahirap ba magtapon ng basura sa tamang lugar? nung election sino mga pinagboboboto niyo? Yan tayo eh! Pag may kalamidad na, hanapan ng masisisi eh… sino ba bumoto kay revilla dahil artista siya at idol niyo siya? Sino bumoto kay sotto dahil kapatid siya ni bossing kung saan kahit nag plagiarize na siya ng speech niya isa pa din siya sa top na binoto ng mga Pilipino… wag na natin isa isahin pa sila…. 

And you politicians? hindi ba dapat linalaan niyo yung pera namin na pinag paguran in fixing the drainage system of this whole fucking country? Hindi pa kayo natuto sa ondoy? Alam niyong top problem to ng pilipinas yearly pero wala kahit isa sa naatasan nag isip rumesponde tungkol dito bago pa mangyari ang sakuna. Buti pa nga si Gordon na hindi pinala maging senador, inaaksyonan ang issue na to eh.. Or bakit kaya hindi ilinaan sa edukasyon kung saan dapat dito nakapondo ang pinaka malaking halaga para naman sa susunod na eleksyon, ang mga boboto ay matatalino na at nalinawan kung sino karapat dapat nahahalal sa pwesto… Sa mga nagpapagod araw araw at nagkakayod at nagbabayad naman ng tax ng maayos, hindi pa ba sapat na magkaroon sila ng maayos na transportasyon? LOOK AROUND, pano niyo nasisikmura ilagay ang paa niyo sa mamahaling sapatos mula pransya o di kaya bag na mas mahal pa sa pagkain ng tao sa isang buwan gamit ang pera ng bansa? Ano na? Nagpapakamatay kayo iboto ng mga tao sa pangakong magbibigay kayo ng magandang serbisyo but you pocketed all of the funds and spent them in trips around the world, shopping for luxury bags and shoes that can even feed a whole Filipino family for a year? 

Huwag niyo sasabihin na hindi sapat ang pondo ng Pilipinas! Each senator/congressman are given a budget to spend on their projects. They donate to non-government organizations. Huwag niyo kaming gawing tanga! Para sa mga hindi pa alam, I’ll lay this in the simplest manner, this Janet Napoles character asks for money from the government to fund her ghost projects. Basically, she steals the taxes we pay for her own and the government official’s pocket.

The congressmen are obviously quiet about the issue kasi sangkot sangkot lang din to eh… pag may nahuli, magkakadamayan na. Si Senator Gringo Honasan nga biglang hindi niya daw kilala si Janet Napoles. Ano kaya yun? This Janet Napoles btw, owns like 30 luxury cars and 28 houses and she claims it’s all from her coal mine in Indonesia, yeah right!  I could go on but you probably know them or will see them in the news. Right now, the NBI are taking charge of this issue but you know what’s worse, though? Lets say Napoles gets arrested, what happens then? It’s a vicious cycle! You can’t get the money back, you can’t touch her properties and justice cannot still prevail, YET. It will all just rot. Best example: Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. I mean, what about the government officials that are affiliated with her? They will all just deny and get away with it. It’s very hypocritical of them to say they fear The Lord, when obviously they don’t even listen to their conscience. We live in Mr. Krabs country, it’s all about “money, money, money”. The “Mr krabs” doesn’t even care about the “employee” or any of his “customers”. He buys cheap stuff for his “restaurant” so he can pocket more money…di bali ng madehado ang customer at worker niya as long as yumaman siya. The “restaurant” is the philippines tinitipid tayo para madaming maibulsa. You know the famous fast food line? “Customer is always right ?” sounds very similar diba?… ahh, yes “tayo ang boss”.

I just fucking hope that the people involved in the pork barrel scam are swimming in guilt right now, since they can’t possibly be swimming in flood because they stole everyone’s money and bought hilltop houses or a lot of house options on where to stay just to keep them safe and let the poor die or get sick. Anyway for them, mababaon din sa limot ang issue. Sad but true. 

I am hoping that it is still possible to live in the Philippines as a first world country. Honestly, I don’t have a clue on how that could happen, but I’m definitely praying it will.

ENER- “G”

Stress, stress, STRESS! But thank God though; I believe it’s better that way than doing nothing. Perhaps my mind and body are pretty much abused and exhausted that not one pill can turn back my lost sleep and/or eradicate my aching feet but hey, all of it I do not regret because it’s all for my future. I am not born with a silver spoon so if I want to have fun, I need to work hard for it. If I want to have my own house after 10 years, I need to work beyond the usual office hours, if I want to travel, I need not be contented on what I am now.

 I may not living the “life” now but I’ll be there soon. Good thing I’m charged with full batt.- “ener-G” that keeps me going.

papan-scene

Admit it, we are all really papansin in many ways because if we weren’t, why do we have instagram, twitter and facebook? That’s basically the use of it…

Deny all you want but we all fall to papansin category. I mean, you wouldn’t post a hashtag selfie because of nothing. perhaps you felt beautiful that time so you had the need to capture your face and show it to everybody, or you have a new hair cut, or someone did your make up… whatever your reason is,  Isn’t that papansin? but that’s not my point… it’s all right to be papansin once in a while,  you felt beautiful that time, you had a haircut that is insta-worthy and nobody should be against that, right? it’s your so –called freedom. But the problem comes in if you do hashtag selfie day per day! you don’t want your followers to be like “HEYYYY, we know that’s how you look like, you don’t have to show that a LOT”  sabi nga nila, too much is nakakaumay.  Kahit ba you change your caption everyday with a different selfie photo, mukha mo pa din yan, pinaulit ulit mo lang… anong sense?

 Ex:

(Sad face photo) caption: I’m having a bad day, because chenelyn, but hey tomorrow is a new beginning. I love sundays ( the usual sad phrase at the start with positivity to end the sentence)

(Flabbergasted face): Caption: I feel so alive,  hello there sun!

(Angry Face) ; Caption: traffic all over ayala, couldn’t this day be  any worst?

(Ecstatic face) Caption: it’s Friday!

I’m like, are you trying to create a set of emoji of your face sa instagram?

I repeat it’s okay to hashtag selfie but not your entire move needs not to be captured.  That’s a different range of papansin na .. and what differentiates people sa instagram  from each other is some falls from a nakakairitang level of papansin already. I call them

 papan-SCENE! in tagalog, ma-eksena! You broadcast every inch of your emotion? Is it really necessary? But oh well, I still follow you; I like checking your profile so I can rant things that aren’t really necessary.  Parang tacsiyapo, nakakapagwala ako sa mga mabababang dahilan.

Long neck. ( yup, i’m bored) hashtag i need a new tvc project huhu

no explanation required

Nobody owns us.

I’m a strong believer that not everything you do needs an explanation. Cliché as it may sound; but we DON’T live to please anybody.

If you want a tattoo, get one. if you rather stay home, it’s okay to miss the gathering. If you’re gay, let it out. Whatever it is, don’t forget that you’re living for yourself. YOU don’t owe anyone an explanation for your choices or preferences. I mean judge as much as they want;  at least you know to yourself that you’re not one hell of a pretentious bitch who tries hard too much. 

Cursed – ten (Kristen)

Today is sorta hell for me, I mean it was supposedly a relax working day, one fucking chill day, but it wasn’t. I went to office for scheduled grading and completion of 5 project clearances ( na yung isa dun na complete ko na pero nalost ng accounting). Simple errands lang diba? However, as cursed as I stated on my blog title, my clearance for project A has a record of lost mac connector, for project b, there’s no fire wire 400 and firewire 800, for project C incomplete liquidation from the PM, however lucky for me, project D is finally complete after 2 fucking months of waiting for technical billings.  

Kamusta diba? What annoys me most is *something something that I’m not suppose to tell here because I can’t rant about them because it’s confidential* mahirap na Diyos “ata” sila eh, you can’t say anything. Dapat stoic lang ang peg. But anyway, as cursed as I am today, I am positive enough and hoping for better days ahead. I can’t wait for this day to end, I want to move on to my next project. kung mabibigyan. (no pun intended)
