One lazy Tuesday afternoon, while browsing on the net for some updates on the coup ‘d etat ( i am still not giving up hopes of getting work called-off because of another mammoth protest-rally along Ayala Avenue) and my friend Cristine ferociously typing on the keyboard her ‘to do list’, we ended up talking politics… ayayaysushindi bagay.

Knowing me and Cristine, our usual tittle-tattle revolves around work, the latest fads, shoes, bags, movies, her ‘K-Portal’, my ‘AQ’ (both referring to persons actually), making fun of Wayne (the Chinese guy who logs off at exactly 5pm everyday) or our dearest Ka-Ching. It must be the chocolate mousse and the sylvanna that we consumed a while ago; yes, it must be the sugar rush and the excess seepage of glucose in our systems.

That little conversation went something like this:

Thet: Ano ba yung proclamation 1017?

Cristine: E di yung State of Emergency ni Gloria…

Thet: Alam mo kase yung pag-declare ni Gloria ng State of Emergency is a subtle way to suppress… (thinking)… hmmm… yung malayang pamamahayag…

Chin: Yea… hmmm… (nods)

Thet: Yea, kase pag ganun, hindi sila basta-basta pwede maglabas ng kung anu-anong balita… may rason ang gobyerno na basta na lang sila damputin…

Cristine: Kase ang problema sa Pilipinas, masyadong lax ang constitutional law…

Thet: OO nga…

Cristine: Unlike sa China, kahit communist, may control ang mga tao sa government kahit pa’pano…

Thet: But hey, you know what, di ba yung mga Pilipinong komunista, idol si lolo mao (tze dong)… because of his principles… sana ganun din dito… i prefer that actually…

Cristine: Syempre bakit…

Thet (joining in) … pulitika pinag-uusapan natin…

Sabay tawa!!! haha…

Really, what’s happening to the world?! (“,)

i wonder if it’s this book — Beijing Doll by Chun Sue — that i am currently reading that’s giving me this cynical mood today. I mean, with all the things that have been happening lately, especially the never-ending political woes and the society’s irrepresible trip to disparagement, it is becoming pretty hard to face the world with a bright outlook and an encouraging smile.

I was watching the news late last night and everything it offered was still about the coup attempts, the finger-pointing in the government, Malacanang washing its hands with the recent arrests of some popular figures that were very transparent about their dislike of how things are being run by the government — the subersives and the ‘filibustres’. I AM one of them.

Cynicism, I guess, is spreading like wild fire in a forgotten forest. We are the dried twigs that one spark of malady could ignite a thousand folds. How sad it is that barely a month has passed since this nation felt whole, felt proud with the ‘Manny Pacquiao and Bryan Villoria victory’. It’s as if everything just evaporated into thin air. Now, all you hear are bouts of anger and disappointment, cruel wishes to let the battle begin and let the coup happen. Even thoughts of Malacanang burning with all the “trapos” helplessly trapped inside. Then, Ayala is so full, confettis are scattered in the streets while thousands of people convened to stage another rally. Yes, I must admit I can see those thoughts vividly. I AM guilty of entertaining them. Then maybe, work would be called-off again; I can go home and sleep.

Oh, Work. I am having a hard time remembering what it means. It’s only a four-letter word, yet it’s that powerful that it can make a person cry, not sleep and kill himself eventually. I never imagined that would be such a pain in the a$$ until I stopped doing what I love to do — write.

Good heavens, please let there be another rally…

My ‘unofficial’ boyfriend Cha Tae Hyun (“,) and ‘Rain’

Here’s Cha Tae Hyun… He’s a goofball… that’s why i like him.

<param name="movie" value="

I like her… hell no… I love her…

Geez, I’m soooo in-love with this music (Pachelbel Canon in D) and this movie…

i don’t have anything to write and it pisses me off. It’s like reminding myself that my life ahora is one big bore. This scares the hell out of me. I just wish something interesting would come my way.

Boredom kills me above anything else. And I don’t wanna die useless. It’s funny how I become too melodramatic sometimes that I think highly of myself — an ultimate creation that someday I will die a hero.

Anyway, just when I thought I couldn’t blabber any farther, I was suddenly reminded of a very interesting horoscope forecast about me yesterday. It says something about me having ‘a sudden bolt of affection towards someone that i just met’. Ngii… I wonder, ano na naman ito? Hehe. Not that I really believe in astrological stuffs like this. Sometimes, it just really amazes me. Have you ever been in that instance where you are actually convinced that your horoscope might just be true because it fits in the current situation? Actually, I don’t really rely on the stars when it comes to my fate. Horoscopes are just fun… something to think about when you’re mind’s losing it all. And hypocrisy aside, it kind’a boosts your ego when your reading is in your favor.

Then there’s this clairvoyant named Sara Freder who keeps appearing in my mailbox, saying things like how my luck is very nil and how she holds the answer to having every wrong in my life go right. I really wanted to believe her. If only her fee will not cost me a whole month of my salary… hehe. nevermind, I think I can handle my life well, go through it without any mystic interventions and still be the happy-feeling-lucky me that I am.



Today is…
