    • sad, that they realized their mistake too late, and now the girl is set in her ways...   and I thought I was sheltered growing up
    • @SiLvErClAwMaster Shi Fu! How are you doing? What a pleasant surprise! Do you remember that time when I told you I'm done with 'Tonite'? I moved on. I've moved on from playing pewee football and on to the NFL. Which is this place: Manila Stars is the NFL in my humble opinion.   
    • @UnwrittenHello Cool Beans Unwritten!  Venison is an acquired taste. The last time I had one, fresh from the amber waves of gold in Kansas (it's literally amber waves! LOL) that it smelled like piss and shoe leather.  Some men like it a lot - the musky smell of hide and tough meat. Well you wan it well done? And please don't hesitate to splash some Barbeque sauce too. Don't you just made me hungry for a nice juicy steak?     
    • hey there, Nightwriter
    • Hello cool Kat! 🙂  Re. pandemic? I think I'm already de-sensitized. The new normal has also gone old and stale that nothing fazes  me any more and I could care less for the delta variant or if it'll go all the way to zeta before we fully contain the virus or it does-in all of humanity 😞 It would seem that the pandemic had a positive effect on wildlife recovery and making for a very productive fishing and hunting season. I don't hunt though and just get my venison from friends who do. Y
    • Birdie's being fed with chicken feeds and some left over rice.  It's usually caged, but I've decided to let it roam the garage this past Sunday.  The stray cat's still within the vicinity.  Birdie's now bigger than the stray cat.  Chicken even runs after the dog.  World has gone upside down.
    • @Storm TrooperDon't you just love those names? It's Like calling your two dogs  "Crispy" and "Bacon". I called my dog Birdie because he is a flighty creature - gets scared easily and runs away from people - just like peasant birds in Manila.  Don't you have any other pets aside from Birdie?   
    • @Storm TrooperAh Yes! I remember those kinds of Chicks. For our Foreign friends :  There are vendors in Manila who would dye chicks with fancy food coloring ( pink, green, red Etc.) to entice young kids into buying them.   I'm sorry about the little chick that died but WOW 😲 you got yourself one healthy chicken!  Are we totally keeping Birdie or are we having her/him for Christmas dinner?   
    • Now I remember.  Green - colored chick was named Chickie, while the pink - colored chick was named Birdie.
    • Two (2) chicks were bought from a street vendor sometime late 2019.  These caught the eye of my youngest daughter when she accompanied my wife to the bank.  One was colored green while the other was colored pink. A couple of weeks later, I made the mistake of allowing the chicks to roam the garage while a stray cat was loose.  Green - colored chick went to heaven.  What's depicted on the picture was once the pink - colored chick.
    • This chicken looks way too old to be dinner. LOL. The meat would be similar to shoe -leather.     
    • So you have a dog named Birdie. Meet Birdie ... the chicken.  Maybe both are related.  😃  
    • @UnwrittenI’m doing well, Unwritten, and you? I thought you’ve forgotten your old friend.  The pandemic has gotten the best of us and we’re presently embarking another one and hopefully we’d get through this one more time. Are you fed up already? I am.  Little Chick and I are doing well, surprisingly! The good thing about living in the country is you have a lot of things to do. My neighbors are young and sketchy and they avoid me like the plague, LOL.  Did you know that all Mama Deers (
    • A trully wonderful piece Kat! Looking forward to reading more. " The reason why I'm writing mine is to help me remember the bad and the good things in my life. Our brain can only handle as much info as it can possibly can and if we can share others what we know - hopefully they'd do better than us, not making the same mistakes like we had. Sounds romantic? Sorry about that!"   You should not apologize for this.  Romanticism after all is a not so thinly veiled face of hopefuln
    • @Sofia Sofia,  I wish the pandemic is done, done, DONE wherever you are, I have a feeling that there will be strong recession soon and it would be just like it were back in the '30s. Don't you just hate the people who took advantage of the pandemic? I am too. It's unfortunate.  I'm looking forward to your blog in the future, it doesn't have to be fancy.  The reason why I'm writing mine is to help me remember the bad and the good things in my life. Our brain can only handle as
    • I'm in analytics now so i don't do design anymore. Those days were fun though. I remember the client had a hard time holding on to a designer at the time because of the mature content of their site. So when I interviewed for the job, they asked me if I'm ok working with that type of content. I worked with them for more than a year. Outlasted most of their designers too.  As for a blog, maybe after the pandemic. I don't have any compelling stories to tell. Unless, anybody is interested in le
    • @Kilroy WashereIt is depressing, I agree. The media is constantly taking on that 'Stranger Danger' on younger couples that they take it as Gospel truth - Too much coddling, too much of the Helicopter parenting here and there and their kids would grow up - mind my French - to become socially retarded. I said it. I'm not going to apologize.  I've seen folks driving their kids to the school bus stop which is only a block away from their house for years! The kids could benefit on walking on the
    • @Sofia Hi Sofia!  You're in the I.T. field! You're way smarter than I am by a stretch! 👍 oh wow, I remember you'd make a ton of money doing web design, that's a really cool field!  Would you still do it in the present? Hey, why won't you write a blog yourself, Sofia? You got a lot of time to share plus people can freely ask you some advice on what you do. I honestly believe that this forum will have a fair chance on making it big someday.  
    • Hi Kilroy!  Oh, the grammar nazis will have to stand trial for awhile! LOL! 🙂 You have a wonderful day yourself, Kind Sir! Be well! 
    • Hey! We have something in common. Years ago, I also used to work in the smut industry. Back when I was still freelancing, I landed a web design job. I designed site for the "cultured" adults.

  1. One fine Saturday afternoon, Dot took Birdie out for a an hour’s walk when a middle aged couple were walking at the opposite direction. They waved at her and said  “ Hi, Come here, we want to talk to you”. So Dot walked across the street to meet them and they had a light conversation with her.

    “What’s your name?” they asked.

    “My name is Dot and this is my dog Birdie”, She replied curtly and shyly while Birdie kept tugging his leash.

    “I’m Ben and this my wife Jerry, is it okay if we invite you to sit with us at our front porch?” the Husband asked.

    “ Sure thing! “ Dot replied and walked with the couple back to their house.

    The couple only lived a few blocks from where I live and it was a short sunny trail towards their humble abode. Dot kept Birdie next to her as she sat on straw chair and the husband was sitting across her while the wife went inside to prepare some refreshments. He started ‘interviewing’ Dot.

    “ So, where’re you from?”.

    “ The Philippine Islands”.

    “ Oh We’re from Washington originally and we love filipino food!”.

    “ Oh, Yeah? Which one?”

    “ I think its pansh*t and pulabog”.

    “ You mean Pansit and Palabok – they’re good!”. Dot giggled a bit and the wife came out and brought a tray of ice cold tea.

    “ By the way , Dot, do you know our daughter Lena?”

    “ Yes, I know her, we ride the school bus together, isn’t she a Junior this fall?

    “ Yes she is. We’d like to ask you something and I hope you wouldn’t mind.”

    “ What is it?”. Dot asked while sipping her drink.

    “ We’d like if you can hang out with her for awhile, like talking to her and ,you know be friends with her”.

    “ I don’t know about that sir because she’s a little older than me”. Dot replied.

    “ She’s an okay kid but she doesn’t have friends, We’re worried that she might miss out her chance having friends in highschool”. Jerry exclaimed.

    “ Where’s Lena?” Dot asked.

    “ She’s at the Animal Shelter, taking care of critters and cats – cleaning their sand box all day”.

    “ Oh okay”

    “ What do you think, Dot, would you help us then?”.

    “I’ll be glad to help you Mr. Ben and Jerry, I’ll tell mom about it and if she says yes- I’ll hang out with Lena!” Dot replied.

    After a couple of minutes, Dot said goodbye to Ben and Jerry and walked on the trail towards our house.

    When I cam home after picking up some groceries from Walmart, Dot was excited about the ‘grown-ups’ she’d met and also about their daughter named Lena.

    Lena. I remember that kid.

    She couldn’t even looked straight ahead with her hair all over her face. She’s frail and awkward most of the time – I guess I haven’t met a kid who isn’t.

    To be honest – I got worried when Lena’s parents are ‘desperate’ for their kid to have a friend or maybe a boyfriend and I think it wouldn’t hurt Dot if she would.

    The next day, Dot walked to Ben and Jerry’s home and Lena was there. Lena seemed pleasant enough to greet her and waved her parents goodbye as they looked on quite happy and contented.

    Dot told Lena that they’d go for a walk together and she said she’s fine with that so they did.

    It turns out that Lena – after walking farther and farther away from home with Dot – is starting to show her true colors.

    Lena didn’t want to have anything to do with Dot – she only want to be left alone and read her gothic romances. Dot was trying to be sociable enough as they went on their stroll but all Lena would answer is one or two syllables if she could.

    After an hour of walking, Dot found an excuse to end the awkward situation and walked back home.

     I was in the kitchen fixing dinner and she told me that she’s exhausted.  Dot even concluded that she’s not going to be friends with Lena because she seems to be there at her parent’s behest not because she wanted to have anything to do with Dot at all.

    Lena’s parents were attempting a last minute correction with her issues that should be addressed years ago. They’ve protected their daughter so well that she never have the opportunity to be properly socialized.

    Perhaps fearing that their daughter that she wouldn’t have a family of her own, they now sought to socialize Lena directly than letting her develop her life by herself

    Dot decided not to talk to Lena anymore nor to her parents but she occasionally waves at them hello when they’d be walking across the street. They would smile and wave back and went on their way.

     

     

  2. At 45 I Dreamed of Death (2019 Marc 22)

    At 45 the universe connected with me through my dreams, told me to hold you tight. In my dreams I saw the planet killer, devourer of life, ender of hope, the apocalypse in the form of a giant space rock. The radio said we had 2 minutes left but death pummelled through the clouds earlier than expected. I don't think it mattered. No length of time is enough to say goodbyes. We were at the top of Antipolo overlooking Ortigas. At first it was slow, beautiful almost to behold. Without warning the huge object accelerated and disintegrated buildings throwing pieces of the earth to the heavens, and then I finally realised that our love has come to an end. You were strong you faced the end, I turned my back and embraced you one last time. I said mahal na mahal kita, Love. But the pain never came. It was dark and cold, I saw stars.

  3. The Filipinos know what's happening, thanks to social media. Filipinos just don't care enough about the Philippines anymore. Our country is continually raped again and again by the same people and these offenses are continued by their sons and daughters.

    Why should I care for the Filipinos? Why should I care for the Philippines?

  5. Nakakalungkot! Pagkalipas ng tatlompu't dalawang(32) taon ay winakasan na ang kasunduan ng UP at DND na pinapayagan ang UP campus na mag sagawa ng pag titipon laban man o para man sa gobyerno...Ang rason daw? naging at patuloy pa ring nagiging ''breeding ground'' ito ng mga makakaliwa at komunistang organisasyon! Eh sir paano naman yung diskarte ng mga pulis natin dyan sa mga darating na panahon? Kung baga dyan na nga lang yung masasabi mo na pwede mong sabihin yung kabulukan ng lipunan eh..babawiin nyo pa? beke nemen ser megbege pe esep nye?

    Sabihin na natin na'' meron'' talagang nahihikayat yung mga makakaliwa at mga komunista dyan at talagang umaakyat ng bundok! pero paano naman po yung mga talaga namang may ipinaglalaban tulad ng rally para wag itaas yung tuition fee? yung para sa kalikasan? at iba pang -cause oriented groups na wala namang kinalaman sa komunista? 

    UP is the only place in the PH with a sufficient space or ground to massively organized towards a certain cause with out any permit and that the police keep thier distance( though spying is real), the media covers the anti-government protest but not the ''other'' protest by non-partisan cause oriented groups. The thing is that if communism is the enemy then take it by the horn and not by the tail. 

    Lusubin nyo sila sa bundok at ubusin1 pero hwag naman yung karapatan na nag tipon at sumigaw! BEKENEMENSER!

    First of all, I would like to greet everyone a Happy New Year.

    I think that New Year's Resolution are over rated. The thing with those is that it has an expiry date. If I want to change, I would do it not because it is New Year but because I want to change for the better.

  6. Sa LIBRO NI PLATO, “LAWS”, LAW IS USELESS IF NOT IMPLEMENTED
    OUR LEGAL SYSTEM PROVIDES THE CREATION OF A BUREAU OF CORRECTION, REHABILITATION AND PENOLOGY. LINALAGAY NATIN SA PRISOHAN ANG MGA NAGKAKASALA SA LIPUNAN WITH THE VIEW OF CORRECTING, REHABILITATING THE PERSON BACK TO SOCIETY. THIS IS THE VIEW OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN A CIVILIZED MODERN WORLD. WE CONSIDER IMPRISONMENT AS OUR DEFENSE MECHANISM OF THE MODERN CIVILIZED WORLD. THE OLD AND BARBARIC AND UNCHRISTIAN REACTION OF PUNISHMENT OF A LIFE FOR A LIFE, A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH, ARE LOOKED DOWN BY THE MODERN CHRISTIAN WORLD. SO KAWAWA NAMAN SI MANI PAKYAW EVANGELIST SA MGA DDS HIHIHI.
    THE QUESTION BOILS DOWN TO ECONMICS, YES ECONOMICS. MAY PERA BA TO REHABILITATE AND CORRECT THE MISTAKEN CONSCIOUSNESS OF PRISONERS NA WELL ANYWAY USO NGAYON ANG MATIRA ANG MATIBAY, KUNG MGA PLUNDERERS O NAGNAKAW NG BILYONES SA BAYAN PINAKAWALAN WHAT IS A FEW MILLIONS SA KABAN NG BAYAN NA PANGHAPIHAPI. KUNG SI BOY KULKOG AT 13, BOY SAKSAK AT 16, KUNG ANG TAONG NAGYABANG NA 1700 NA ANG KANYANG NAPATAY AT NAPAPATAY, AT GUSTONG PANG PUMATAY NG 3,000,000  kasi IDOL daw niya si HITLER...... GINAWA PANG PRESIDENTE NG MGA TABOGOK NA MGA PILIPINOS, WHAT IS LAW IN THE PHILIPPINES NOW??
    SOCRATES SAID: THE TRUTH.... NOT LIP SERVICE, NOR NOBLE LIES WE CALL PROPAGANDAS AND PHOTO OPS , WILL SET MAN FREE. WHY DONT WE TRY THE DOCTRINES OF CHRISTIANITY INSTEAD OF THE SOUND AND FURY OF ATHEISTIC HUMANISM MGA INAMAW NI GONGGONG UG MGA BINOTBOT?
