"save the cheerleader, save the world"

I know I’m quite late for this but I’ve just finished Heroes Season 1.

With its 23 premiere episodes, several gifted individuals connive from different parts of the globe to do one mission:

To save the world.

Of which, yeah, a catchy plot to attract comic book fanboys and regular viewers alike.

The series of intrinsic display of superpowers and human nature could somehow be related to Spencer and Darwin’s survival of the fittest as what matters in the end is the ability to adapt and who could prevail.

I Already have the other 2 seasons and I can’t wait to go home and watch it in my netbook.
And hey, I must admit that one of the factors that hook me into this series is that I’m glued with Sylar’s cruel yet sexy eyes. Darn!

I woke up around 5am and had coffee at the Robinsons' Terminal (San Fernando area), where there are series of bus heading to neighboring towns. I have Subic Bay on mind. it is on my itinerary checklist as i keep on hearing about the place and i haven't been there yet, so i asked around w/c one goes to that area. A man told me to ride the bus going to Olongapo.

So i hop into this one.

I had a ticket w/c only costs Php113.00

the bus is quite empty, even to the most part of the trip. One can make do silly things or even intriguing acts while on board. I wish I have a sexy companion whom i could make out with.
lol.. =)

but too bad, I only have my travelling bag with me..


heavy rainfall keep on drowning this day on this part of the country, i can't even clearly see what's beyond my window.

I have Tori Amos on my playlist. I even hum along with her shrill voice. nobody would bother to mind anyway..

we came across this cemetery. the tombs are constructed by the cliff. Its like a terraces, only that dead bodies were buried.

I asked the bus conductor if he could drop me to a resort in Subic, and he suggested this one. Hmm, well this one is way too much.

They charge Php400!!!

It's inclusive for usage of all their facilities though.. but all i want to see is the sea and the infamous "Subic Bay Sunset" but of course, it's stormy so that notion is improbable.
but at least, can i get into the bay please...

so i roam around the strip trying to find a backdoor to the beach

hmmm.. they charge Php200 for entrance alone.. never mind

hmm... where this bridge leads to?

tadah.. ok.. finally..

so this is it?

um, tao po? ito na ba yung subic bay?

yes indeed, it is..

ahh ok, so after several hours of a slippery ride. I officially step foot on this shore.
The weather is quite depressing and i have nothing else to do but to light a cig.

Hello Subic Bay.
My name is Liyo.
I'm from Cebu and I'm just dropping by to say hey..

I got Bjork's "wanderlust" this time...
at least naabot iyang tingug dinhi

taking refuge from my umbrella, i went to their main city and try to find a place to eat.

darn, im so hungry..

hmn, ok... such industrious town i've been to.

I bumped with a person in a diner earlier. we had a small talk. Upon knowing I'm not from here, she suggested to go to the Subic free Port. However the mode of transportation of going to that location is quite difficult and I'm running out of time. I need to go back to Clark for my flight back to Cebu before night time.

so i end up inside this church..

ginoo, tabangi ko.. unsa man akong buhaton dire?


for that i got to go..

purple clouds

i've been standing still
across ur window
standing still
amongst empty tables
u from afar
u keep on shining
here i am
gathering mist upon my weathered eye
they clump up, build up
into purple clouds

its just been days
that ur flowing with me
but u evaporated
vanished like pricked bubble
piercing me with lightning
stabbing my stormy heart

here i am
gathering mist upon my weathered eye
they clump up, build up
into purple clouds
they're too heavy
too dense
for me to keep

byaheng Bacolor,

pinuntahan ko ang bayan ng Bacolor, kung saan may bukas pa.
at ako'y napadpad sa simbahan ng San Guillermo.

yung dating (12) labing dalawang metros na simbahan ay
nalibing ang kalahati sa lahar noong ang Mt. Pinatubo ay sumabog in early 1990's

kaya ngayon, eto ang tumambad sa akin pagkapasok ko sa simbahang ito.

tignan mo yung arca sa bandang kiliran, noon ay dating daanan pero ngayon eh pantay na
sa luhuran ng simbahan.

at dahil sa walang himpis na ulan, yung baha
ay pumasok sa parang animoy
mini pond sa loob.

sa may left wing naman, ay nandon yung mga rebolto at archaic interiors

namasdan kung maraming dividers na parang kwarto dito sa bandang ito.
gusto ko tong "agony in the garden" reproduction and the big cross

isa sa mga tagong lugar ay itong prayer room.
kung saan dapat yumoko sa pagpasok.

naabotan ko na merong tao sa loob. nadama kung napaka peaceful at sacred ng place.
aaminin kung matagal tagal na rin akong hindi nakapag dasal ng taimtim

ang ganda sana mag.kape dito at manigarilyo..
tapos meron kang sylvia plath o anne sexton na binabasa

ewan ko kung bakit, pero nahihimaling yung damdamin ko sa balon na ito

sa tagal kung pagtingin sa balon at napatulala,
meron akong nadinig na batang kumakanta
ng may bukas pa..

naku, santino...
ikaw ba yan?
wait.. don't go away please..

ay hindi pala..

hmmm.. parang familiar to ah.
hindi ako makapaniwala na yung movie na pinanuod namin na russ
na: Jay (film)
isa to sa mga background saan nag papicture sila jay at edward..

hay naku... kulang nalang dito ay si edward
(buntong hininga)

mamauli nata,

kay sakit na ang akong bagtak sa sigeg baktas
ug ang akong lobot sa sigeg lingkod sa bus
mamauli nata
kay kilum-kilum na
ang kangit ngit gadagan padung sa akoa
mituhop na ang kagabhion sa akong lapa-lapa
sigeg dagan, sigeg dagan
mao raman gihapon
sa kangitngit, maabtan
makalilisang ang hugyaw sa mga gangis
makalilisang ang mga paghot sa mga iro
makalilisang ang mga pina-akan sa mga lamok
makalilisang ang anino sa mga stranghero
.....................nya ikaw usa sad ka stranghero usa ka stranghero na lugar
makalilisang ang gabii
labi na kun tugnaw ug mingaw

gusto na naku mouli
sa balay nga akong namathan
diin ikaw ug ako dili lumalabay lamang
diin ang atong dughan ug panagway
mo hayag sa atong mga kalag nga nisigrab

mamauli nata
kay kapoy na

how do you find her voice?

tori amos sounds like a girl
trapped in a well
one monday morning
paper cup shaped well
filled with tons of coffee grains
only her mouth and nostrils could be seen
blabbering about the cornflake girl
and the blackest black ocean
where shattered hearts and broken whims
get dipped
like teabags
up and down they blot
up and down they stain
a whisper
from an unseen lover
