Our Day in Manila
There's no place like Manila - goes that famous Hotdog song.

that's what they say. but i beg to differ. Dvao is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAYY better than manila, even Baguio is better than Manila. But that's just too unfair for me to say because we only stayed there for a day! hehe. wa koy labot.

Anyway, we stayed at Kabayan hotel somewhere in Pasay along EDSA Taft. Shit sobrang mahal ng pamasahe. Sa eroplano hilong-hilo ako grabe (biyahilo talaga - first time man gud. Sorry hah. hehe.) Si mon2 katawanan because we fought over the window seat. bahala siya, iyaha na to hilo kaayo ko noh. So we arrived at 9 am and deretso agad sa hotel. Then after - palamig muna sa MOA. Tangina grabe dako jud diay. Haha. i hate to sound all so ignoramous pero totoo. Sobrang nakakapagod maglakad doon. AANYWAAYY
For dinner I and mon2 (joiners) met up with chokie, nikka and valur. Kawawa kaayo sila kay gipangita jud nila among hotel sa gitna ng traffic (uuuyyy touch ako! bait grabe!) Tapos MOA again. We ate dinner together.... blah blah blah. strolling... blah blah blah. Magugulat talaga kayo kay Nikka! She's making notes na and listening to the lectures (that's according to her! hehehe joke lng nik! dba im so proud of you).

Tapos we went back to the hotel courtesy of Val as usual. Ulaw kaayo kay nanglibak mi ug tomboy, tomboy man diay ang driver!!!! ayay.... hahaha chokie nxt time ingat (THAT Goes for me too!)

so until here nalang. continue nako next time kay sa net cafe lang ako nag surf sa net.

Sa Wakas. The End. Sayonara!!!
Within 15 hours (and counting) I’m about to graduate.

So what am I feeling?

Well, still I am in a state of well, you know.. The graduate-giddy-nostalgic type of feeling.

The truth be told, I really, really am very eager to graduate. Why? I can’t just wait to get out the school that I’ve been going to for almost 12 years. No more cramming for me (at least for the rest of the summer). No more 4th year lessons, no more of the kind of shiznit that I’ve been attending to for almost 12 years.

12 fucking years.

Tangina, ang swerte ng paaralang pinapasukan ko. Lahat ng pinag-ipunan ng ermat at erpat ko pumunta sa kanila. Swerte rin nila may isang tulad ko na pumapasok sa kanila.

I can give you reasons why I can’t wait to get my hands on that diploma. But I can give you more reasons why I have to stay.

I want to graduate because; I want to go to college. I want to have a new environment, blah di blah di blah… all that shit. I do not want to graduate yet because firstly I have to take care of the whole class’ clearance (thanks TO ME, class president, way to go yehey, sarcastic mode). Second, I still have to do my job as an Art Editor for our yearbook. And lastly, I will really miss a lot of people. (SHIT drama mode na). I WILL REALLY MISS A LOT OF PEOPLE. There are a lot of people that I have learned to hate and learned to love. I will miss the cramming and the shouting inside the classroom. I will surely miss the thrill in using kodigos or the leakages from other sections. I will miss my friking classmates who are radical, stupid yet brilliant in some ways (but most of the time – not.) I will miss the frantic deadlines (don’t worry honey; there will be more of them soon). The teachers, the comfort room, my armchair, my (our) locker, the lunch outs, the projects, the chikka sessions, EVERYTHING.

Moving on will be very hard. It’s very hard to get out from something that I have been doing for almost 12 years.

So, basically that’s it. I am happy, anxious-excited, sad, and fulfilled at the same time.

An Open Letter to Every Filipino - Please read.
An Open Letter to Every Filipino - Please read.
Posted by: "chillitees" chillitees

Subject: What will make me leave the Philippines. .. An Open Letter to Every Filipino

Forwarded message...

Dear Fellow Filipino,

Good day to all of you! Before I begin my letter... just a disclaimer, for people who know
me they know that I love the Philippines very much and I am not really one who rants and
complaints to high heavens about what is happening to our country and does nothing
about it, in fact, I feel that at my relatively young age of 27, I have done much service to
the Philippines by setting up Pathways to Higher Education which has sent more than 500
poor but deserving students to college and AHON Foundation which has already built two
public elementary school libraries that have benefitted more than 3,500 students. Yet,
after seeing how events in our nation have transpired the past few weeks and talking with
some friends, I feel the urge to share with you my own thoughts and feelings.

Over the weekend, we saw the completion of two major political alliances for this coming
Senate Elections that has just began here in the Philippines . Now we have two political
forces with familiar faces nonetheless on opposite sides of the fences. On one end, you
have Tito Sotto and Tessie Aquino-Oreta who were two major stalwarts of the opposition
and the FPJ Campaign in 2004 hobnobbing with the woman (Pres. GMA) whom they
claimed to have cheated FPJ in the last Presidential Elections.On the other side of the
fence, you see Manny Villar, the former house speaker who was actually responsible for
impeaching Erap now part of the United Opposition who is led by no less than... Erap
himself. Now if you don't see anything wrong with this picture then you must be one of the
many Filipinos who have accepted this very sad reality that there is indeed no permanent
ideals that our government leaders stand up for but rather they just go where there self-
interests can best be served. It is this kind of politics why I no longer wonder why good
people like Ramon Magsaysay Awardee Mayor Jesse Robredo of Naga City or outstanding
Bulacan Governor Josie Dela Cruz will find it hard or worse, never be elected to national

It is with these in mind that I'd like to share with you what are events this coming May
elections that will make me consider leaving the Philippines :

1.) If former COMELEC Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano of Hello Garci fame wins in his bid
to become Congressman of Bukidnon...seeking to replace a good man no less in
incumbent Cong. Neric Acosta... We would really be the laughing stock of the whole world
if we allow a man with the reputation of Garci to be one of our so called "Honorable

2.) If Dancing Queen Tessie Aquino Oreta reclaims her seat at the Senate... I hope that all
of us would still remember that dance that she did during the 2001 impeachment hearings
after they voted to overrule the decision of then Chief Justice Davide... let us make sure
that people like her never make it to the Senate again.

3.) If Richard Gomez becomes a senator... what does he know about making laws? We
already have the likes of Bong Revilla and Lito Lapid in the Senate and their performance
or lack of it would be reason enough not to elect another actor who has no prior
experience in government to the distinguished halls of the Senate.

4.) If Gringo Honasan wins again.. have we not learned our lesson? I cannot believe that
just because someone is charismatic then we will just elect him to become one of our
senators despite the fact that he has time and again caused so much instability in our
country... if we want a military junta similar to that of Thailand ... then lets all vote for this

5.) If Manny Pacquiao becomes Congressman of General Santos City... everybody loves
Manny the Boxing Champ but Manny the Lawmaker? Lets be realistic here, Manny is our
Hero alright but I think it takes more than just great boxing skills and a desire to serve to
be able to make appropriate laws that would help uplift the lives of the many Filipinos who
live in Poverty.

6.) If Lito Lapid wins for Mayor of Makati City... I don't like Jojo Binay as well but Lito Lapid
as city mayor of the country's finance and business center?!?! And do you really think he is
from Makati and has good plans for the city? The Arroyos asking someone like him to run
just goes to show you how much love and concern this government has for our country.

7.) If Chavit Singson becomes a Senator, Illegal Gambling = Chavit... enough said.

Now if all of these 7 things happen during this coming elections then don't be surprised if
I decide to leave this country that I love dearly. Like I said during the first part of my letter,
I feel that I have done much for this country but I think its time that Filipinos become more
vigilant and critical in selecting our leaders for the sake of our future and the generations
that will go beyond us. So I appeal to every Filipino who asks what can I actually do for my
country... Choose and vote for the right people this coming elections, huwag na tayong
magpaloko sa mga kandidatong maganda lang ang jingle o gwapo lang sa mga poster. Let
us choose leaders who have a good track record for service and who are genuinely
committed towards serving our country.

Manindigan naman tayong lahat para sa ating Kinabukasan at para sa Kapakanan ng ating

Thank you very much for your time in reading this letter.
