After pondering about this blog for quite a long time (two years and a half!), I decided that I should not let all my efforts go down the drain. Therefore, here I go, been posting again, randomly, to revive my own blog. Anyhow, I would like to share some tips that I gathered for this site which I posted three years ago.

MANONG, WALA PO BA KAYONG BASURAHAN?

Earlier today, my son and I were on our way home from his swimming lesson when a sidewalk vendor carelessly threw the plastic covering of the box he was holding (not sure what it was). The plastic wrapper flew straight near my right foot so I stepped on it before it flew away.
I pray that somehow my message to the man will sink in and make him think about and care for the Mother Earth and that he spreads the word to his own wife and little kid. I pray too that Manila will never be heavily flooded again.

I asked the man, “Manong, wala po ba kayong basurahan?” (Sir, don’t you have a rubbish/garbage bin?) Then I tried to look behind him and around his mini-shop to locate the bin.

He replied, “Wala.” (None.) Then, he pointed to the sidewalk. He frowned and stared at me with half open mouth showing his dirty yellow-brown teeth with a big black dirt or maybe left-over food, sticking out of his lower teeth. Yes, I saw it to my dismay! I wanted to step back but stayed where I was.

It’s probably stupid of me to continue the conversation that I started with this fellow but I picked the plastic wrapper up from under my right shoe and folded it into half.

Then I said, “Kaya po nagbabaha dahil sa basura.” (It floods because of rubbish.)

He shrugged and motioned to throw the plastic wrapper to the sidewalk.

With a hint of a smile, I told him, “Itatapon ko po ito sa tamang basurahan.” (I will throw this to the proper bin.)

Cluelessly, he said, “Huh?”

I repeated what I said.

Then my son and I walked away while I was folding the plastic wrapper into smaller square to fit into the back pocket of my denim shorts.

Many of you would probably not do what I did and argue that I shouldn’t have. The man looked harmless so I did. I’m just glad he didn’t bite with those scary dirty teeth. Gross!

Nonetheless my point is, why people do not care? Half of Manila is flooded every typhoon season and was heavily flooded, 10-feet up or more, during Ondoy (Pepeng) typhoon two years ago.

One of the main causes of flood is all the plastic wrappers, bottles, cups and all the imaginable and unimaginable waste are thrown not into their proper bins or recycled. They are swept away into the drainage system which then block the rain water from coming through. Hence, the flood.

Sigh.

I Finally Found Someone

Nope, I’m not in love… again. This was the theme song for
I used this song as background music for this site before. But recently removed it because I think it is inappropriate now that “I Finally Lost That Someone” :D
the movie The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), sung by Barbra Streisand and Bryan Adams.

This song was sort of 'our' theme song too. I created a PowerPoint presentation, a few years ago, with this song as a background, showing off all the happy moments captured during our first year together.

Anyhow, the lyrics are for all of you hopeless romantics. <3




I've Finally Found Someone
by: Barbra Streisand and Bryan Adams


I finally found someone
That knocks me off my feet
I finally found the one
That makes me feel complete

It started over coffee
We started out as friends
It's funny how from simple things
The best things begin

This time it's different
And it's all because of you
It's better then it's ever been
'Cause we can talk it through
My favorite line was

"Can I call you sometime"
It's all you had to say
To take my breath away
This is it, oh,

I finally found someone
Someone to share my life
I finally found the one
to be with every night
'Cause whatever I do
It's just got to be you
My life has just begun
I finally found someone

Did I keep you waiting (I didn't mind)
I apologize (baby that's fine)
I would wait forever to just to know you were mine
You know, I love your hair (Are you sure it looks right?)

I love what you wear (Isn't it too tight?)
You're exceptional
I can't wait for the rest of my life
This is it, oh

I finally found someone
Someone to share my life
I finally found the one
To be with every night

'Cause whatever I do
It's just got to be you
My life has just begun
I finally found someone

'Cause whatever I do
It's just got to be you
My life has just begun
I finally found someone

Closest Thing To Crazy


This was the song that kept ringing in my head during the time of confusion which, soon after, turned out to be the most miserable time of my life... two years ago.




Closest Thing To Crazy
by: Katie Melua

How can I think I'm standing strong,
Yet feel the air beneath my feet?
How can happiness feel so wrong?
How can misery feel so sweet?
How can you let me watch you sleep,
Then break my dreams the way you do?
How can I have got in so deep?
Why did I fall in love with you?

[CHORUS:]
This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen,
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known,
I was never crazy on my own...
And now I know that there's a link between the two,
Being close to craziness and being close to you.

How can you make me fall apart
Then break my fall with loving lies?
It's so easy to break a heart;
It's so easy to close your eyes.
How can you treat me like a child
Yet like a child I yearn for you?
How can anyone feel so wild?
How can anyone feel so blue?

[CHORUS]
