Laging tinitignan

mukha nating dalawa

mga lumang larawan

at mga lumang alaala

dating kinikilig

ngayon ngiti nalang

pinipigilan ang bibig

na sabihing miss kita

‘di na babalik ang pagtingin

‘di nagwawala ang damdamin

Alam mo naman kasi

sa tagal nating nagsama

kilala mo na ako

nababasa ang aking mukha

buti alam mo

ayoko na kasi ng gulo

masayang masaya ka na

‘di na kailangan magkaeksena

‘di na babalik ang pagtingin

‘di nagwawala ang damdamin

Laging tinitignan

mukha niyong dalawa

sa bagong larawan

ng kasalan niyong langit ang tema


“In 1991, when Rolling Stone interviewed Dylan on the occasion of his 50th birthday, he gave a curious response when the interviewer asked him if he was happy. He fell silent for a few moments and stared at his hands. ‘You know,’ he said, ‘these are yuppie words, happiness and unhappiness. It’s not happiness or unhappiness, it’s either blessed or unblessed.‘”


Me and my friends has finally started our podcasting project.  We dub ourselves “Non-Leaders of Opinion”.  Listen here.



“life has a funny way of turning you into the one thing you don’t wanna be” – Dr. Jeffrey Squires (The Wackness)



Just deleted my Facebook account, which was surprisingly tedious! Goodbye spam, goodbye application requests, goodbye so-called friends, hello tidier virtual life!


It has been three long years since 1035 K-lite met its demise. It has also been that long since I tuned in to Philippine radio. The big black hole left by K-lite still chills my bones when I dared to tune in using my mobile phone. The airwaves have been jam-packed by pure blah, enough said.

Here’s what I’ve been missing:

  • Great DJs -> Lanie and Jinji, Vito and Melinda, Carl for the Red Eye and Blade for E-Z street
  • Great Programs –>Talk Back, Morning Brew, Lite N’ Live,  Faster Than Lite (?)
  • *Great Playlist -> in the end it’s all about the music

The overall package of the frequency was tailored fit for me. K-lite will never be forgotten easily, especially when I hear songs that I discovered through K – lite.

Here’s my top 10 list of tunes that are so K-lite.

10) “Who Is Me” by Silvercrush

09) “Children Say” by Level 42

08) “Somewhere In The Middle” by Dishwalla

07) “Breathe” by Greenwheel

06) “Save It For Later” by Splender

05) “Best Thing” by Dropline

04) “Freeze” by Pay The Girl

03) “Take Me As I Am” by Tonic

02) “Wasting My Time” by Default

01) “New Black Car” by July For Kings


The Unprotected by Cavalier King

i live a sheltered life
i live a strange life like everything is perfectly arranged for me
i just survive here i never thrive here
i’m in a culture of mediocrity

i live a sterile life
i live a safe life so i will never feel pain or suffering
i never cry here
i never try here i’ll never reach my full capacity

i want the real thing
i want The Unprotected
i want the feeling that i am still alive

i want the real thing
i want the consequences
i want the feeling that i am still alive

what would your mommy say
what would your daddy say
if they knew we’ve been playing all night long here
why don’t you take it off
why don’t you tear it off why don’t you show me something i’ve never seen before

i want the real thing
i want The Unprotected
i want the feeling that i am still alive

i want the real thing
i want the consequences
i want the feeling that i am still alive

give me the suffering
give me the bleeding
i’ll take the pain and turn it in to ecstasy
i have to face the fear that i may die here
die having never really lived for anything
i want the real thing
i want The Unprotected i want the feeling that i am still alive

i want the real thing
i want the consequences i want the feeling that i am still alive


Sharing this because my girl just called me an hour ago about her cab’s uber-fast meter .  She failed to control herself and reacted, “manong ang bilis naman ng metro n’yo!”. The driver replied, “ah ganun ba? magkano ba binabayad nyo dun?” She answerd 60 pesos and immediately saw a dramatic decrease on the rate the cab’s meter was going. She was riding a  Romcat taxi.

Here’s the article:

Just to give you a warning, avoid riding cabs with names like Wallis, Romcat & Lucky8. All these taxis are owned by just one family and most of its drivers are muggers, rapists or simply swindlers.

According to the driver who is the source of this information, he used to work for the said company but lasted for only 2 days since he couldn’t bear the idea of “panggagantso”.

He said there is no single unit of this company that doesn’t cheat. Each and every car that they own has “batingting” that is used to manipulate the taxi meter.

Furthermore, the driver also informed that the owners hire anyone even if the person has a criminal record. As a matter of fact, the owners are fully aware of their drivers’ misconduct yet they turn a blindeye on it coz what matters most to them is the boundary of their drivers that’s to be given to them at the end of the day.

He also said that prior to leaving, he found out that one of his co-drivers mugged his passenger and even touched her private parts. When the passenger filed a legal complaint about it, naturally the driver got apprehended but was released because of bail.

Immediately the next day, the very same criminal was hired back by their company and was out driving his unit again.

He said you will be able to recognize the taxi units of this company even at night since their taxi logos on top of their roof have a unique lighting. Instead of the usual yellow light on the “taxi” sign, theirs are red.

Prior to writing this, there was a research about the taxi company and it was found out that they have been featured in one of the shows in GMA-7 (Imbestigador). Indeed they have proven that the drivers of this company are swindlers and muggers.

If you care about your family, friends, co-workers, classmates And other people close to you, pass this information along.
