This is the right time!

Com'on Filipino Youth, this is one true moment where we can be united and spread help to those who are in dire need. This is not just about the material things but also the emotional support that we can lend those brothers and sisters suffering from the drastic effect left by typhoon Ondoy to our country especially in the Metro.

Many people thinks I'm just getting on with the bandwagon where famous youth personalities go out and serve the nation. I know it's not right to state my real mission for that would be just between me and the Almighty Father in Heaven. In my viewpoint, instead of making "batikos" to the reasons why people are motivated to help, why don't we just support each other by doing our share to help save those in need.

First, allot time to pray. We should and must be very thankful that most of us are safe and even not affected by the harm of typhoon Ondoy.

Second, try your best to donate and help in the distribution of the relief goods in any volunteers or donation centers in your area.

Third, make use of technology. Retweet, Repost, Resend every important info

Fourth, let's remember to keep the Bayanihan Spirit Alive!

Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure or joy (Wikipedia).


"You cannot hold someone's life the way you want it to be, no matter how you want them to be happy, they have rights to choose which path they'll go through."
-my facebook status, posted 3 hours ago

Most of usually encounter problems on friendship - getting real close up to the point that life's meaning to you is that person or that group of persons. I've been spending most of my teenage years with ten great people (aside from my family) that changed my life, in all aspects. I treat them much like siblings and to tell you honestly, I'll die when they go and leave me or the other way around.

Separation anxiety, fear of rejection. I don't know what's really happening or what's going through my head. I do understand the fact that I cannot took hold of these people's aspirations and dreams... it's their life and they are the only ones who has the right to decide what should they do.

I've been looking for what I really want in life these past few days and decided to stay away from the usual "me" lifestyle. But as each day pass, there's a hole in my heart that grows - something that makes me feel that everyday there's something or someone taken from me and I don't know if I can find them again.

Case #1: An indecisive friend.
- I know that this friend only wants to be happy in life. But then, there's a lot of circumstances that took place and made the wind blow the other way. I'm not losing my patience on this person [but I'll admit that this scenario's really testing me], not even losing a single drop of faith. I know that this person deserves to be happy [everyone does]. All we need is to wait for that right time when everything falls in their right places.

To my indecisive friend: You need a gentle nudge regarding your perspective of happiness. I don't know if that nudge would be from me, but I hope that eventually you'll realize that great happiness is not about getting it in a blink of an eye - it's already destined and God only knows the right time.

Case #2: The 360 Degrees Mood Swing
- It's getting worst everyday!

To myself: Don't let the stress eat you... You are not edible!

Case #3: Old Maid Trauma
- To quote one person, "I'm getting older and I need someone to rely on." Correct, indeed. And that statement is bugging me and deeply affects my thinking activities [don't get me wrong, I'm not yet psychotic]. I never did this before but I'm trying to rely on my horoscope at Yahoo! just to keep myself sane.


...or have I found you already but the problem is, I have already let you go. :(

Senseless. Just telling the world what's dancing through my brain.

SixCycleMind's Dream

As I walked along the sky
Of my dream you came alive
And it feels you’ve made to change
My whole life
And I know you will be there
There for me to make me stare
And it will be always and
Forever in my dreams

Dream, it makes me change but not for real
'Cause I only see you smiling
In my dreams, that’s the only time
I make you feel that my love for you is real

Come to me and hold me in my dream
Let me touch you for a while
And don't let me realize that I am dreaming
Cause I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you

As I ran along the sky
Full of dreams, hopes and lies
You just come to make me feel
That we’re supposed to be together
And I know you will be there
There for me to make me stare
And it will be always and
Forever in my dreams

It’s time to come around
It’s time to wake up now

The song was initially part of Callalily's debut album (Destination XYZ) and if I'm not mistaken, it was produced by Kuya Rye Sarmiento and Kuya Ney Dimaculangan of 6CycleMind. I believe it was written by SoupStar Management's main man, Sir Dar Hernandez.

6CycleMind performed the song during their acoustic set for MYXPH.COM's Setlist together with other "project" songs namely: Kung Wala Na Nga (part of Danita's debut Album, Promotor), Walang Iwanan and some of their old hits - Upside Down, I, Sandalan whereas I was luckily free to join them and enjoy the whole time.
(L to R) Kuya Rye, Ate Kat, me and Kuya Ney

The song is about dreaming. Haha! It's about how a certain dream can influence a person, how it may affect one's perspective and way of living. At some point I also think that the song teaches us how to determine which dreams should be converted into reality and which should remain as is. It inspires me to dream more and achieve it if possible. :D

It's time to come around, it's time to wake up now... It's time to come around. YEAH YEAH. :)

Are Horoscopes Real?

When it comes to your love life, the future is in your hands on the 1st and 2nd. Do you stay or do you go? Do you ask them out or do you shy away? Do you just say, 'okay what the heck, nothing risked, nothing gained'? Or do you choose the path of least resistance? Well, only you can answer. And if you choose wrong the first time, then try, try again. After all, you've got all month to learn to take a risk. What? You still think you can have romance without putting your feelings on the line? On the 5th, you'll see the patent falsity of your way of thinking. Some heavy-duty emotions show you that you need to get serious about allowing yourself to be vulnerable. The 9th and 10th are your days. Only do things that are good for you. Put yourself ahead of everybody else. Give yourself a pat on the back, a rub on the tummy and kiss on the cheek. You deserve it! Why rush to the end when you could be enjoying the beginning on the 15th? By the 20th, you need to break free of tried and true. Try wild and crazy! Try totally unknown! Try a blind date. Set up by your best friend! Go big with your message on the 25th. Keep calm on the 30th.
--Yahoo! Horoscope

I don't personally believe in Horoscopes but I do not say anything negative about it at the same time. It was just last month and so as for this month when I started reading my horoscope for Career and Love. Maybe I'm playing with the geek girl side, I guess. :)

September 2, 2009.
I went to Club Dredd, Eastwood to give some of my time to help raise funds for Kuya Joey's baby, Yeoj. I know it'll be a little tiring but it will be really fulfilling because at the end of that event, I'll get to recall that once in my life, I became a productive individual and that I made a way to help those in need (lets just put it this way, I'm saying this 'cause I'm making myself believe from all the appreciative messages and comments that I personally receive from a lot of people connected with the event). Too flattering, I'm not used to it, though.

That night, there were 5 things that really scared me:
1. Obtaining less sales = less funds for Yeoj. =(
2. Companions might be pissed off - I'm afraid they'll get tired of selling the items.
3. Negative energy - People might tell me that it's better to watch the gig instead of selling.
4. Umagahin (and it happened! Haha.)
5. To see that guy again.

With Erin and Car.
I raise my glass to them. They were too supportive of the event, the items and me. I am really touched with their efforts of helping me out though I know they really want to see the bands to perform. They stayed with me from the time we arrived Dredd until the gig ended. You gals definitely rule. Hands down, Hats off.

Emy and I.
Aside from my bandmates, Emy (our newly acquired roadie) should also be given lots of credit. :) I know that she's the real excited one to watch the show but instead of going inside and mingle with her friends, she chose to stay with us and do the selling. I never expected that from her since it was just our second meeting. Haha! You are wonderfully great, Emy. :)

The Groupie is awake!
Call me whatever you like, it's just that I am indeed an OPM Band Fanatic and I am proud that I am one. This was the reward I gave myself after doing the selling. Little things are huge happiness to me! :D

Vince of Paraluman and me.
It was just last August 27 when I rocked out with Vince's band at Sazi's Bar. It was such a joy seeing him at Dredd though his band wasn't part of that gig's line up (on the second part at Mag:Net they'll be playing).

with Kuya Rye of 6CycleMind.
Met him a couple of times since I was a freshman. It was just these days when I got the chance to be a little close to him and his band. ;) And I want to commend him for buying an item for Yeoj. He's one great Kuya talaga.

with Philip aka Poleng
(I use to call him Poleng 'cause they say that he looks like Pauleen Luna, daw)
of Aurora.
He's my facebook chatmate and just met him twice as well. I'm just fascinated by the way he uses his guitar effects and by the way he strums his band's song. \m/

Celebrating 4 Years and Counting
Callalily was Yeoj's godfathers. I've been with these guys since 2005 and I never thought that the invisible bond will last this long. "Been there, done that" was the whole story of my journey with this bunch of guys. Too memorable but still I have to risk something to open another door for a better opportunity.

That's Alden and my hand. Emy took the shot. Makes me emotional when seeing this one. And seeing that he's using the Tote Bag he bought for Yeoj's benefit makes me more emotional.

Here's my original pal, Kean. We were classmates way back UST days and that's were the bond between us started. He's the ninong of the night. He's the main man that's why we got a little presentable fund collection. ;) Thanks, man!

Yeah. Tats and me. He's my first guy text and call mate (after graduating High School from an all-girl school) when I was in first year college. Pictures can fake emotions. My emotions are really stirred that moment. No Comment.

I've planned to lay down the friendship and the music before the event took it's place but I think the effectiveness won't be that fast. I need a couple of months and new more things to do for me to recover.

Many things are said. I need to shut my mouth now and end this sort of IDK blog post. Goodbye. =(
