Sparkling lights and merry go round



One time, we felt bored and went completely miserable
Gia is about to go nuts...



we wanted to come up with a solution as she might turn into a whimpering hag
in no time.

so i presented her an empty paper cup and asked her, what 's the matter Gia?



Gia:Geez! I am so bored out of my skull..
I need something to lift my spirits.
Do u have something vivacious in mind?




So I tried to cheer them up with a happy concoction. it's a cup full of wishful dreaming.

Ian hesitate it first, but later on gave in with the offer.



Eventually, i see Gia starting to like it…



Now, Gia and Ian can’t stop talking about the marvelous mess and the crappy things in life.
Somehow the cup of wishful dreaming brought wonders to their darkest hour.





Sparkling lights and merry go round, that’s how they seem to feel.


They still can’t get enough with their euphoria
And just like from Elizabeth Coatsworth’s line:

Now from the dark,
a deeper dark,
The cat slides,
Furtive and aware,

His eyes still shine with meteor spark



that's all for now, until then..

sail on,
liyo

road trip; a whimsical ride

Last Sunday; Russ, ms. B and I were on a road trip to buy some flowers




we headed up to the mountain side, towards Bacolor.


we passed by Jay Mercado, who's waiting for Edward

.
.
and we spotted the little girl whom i love to call Nenang, i guess she want to buy some ice cream
at the Fentons Creamery with her favorite flavor for today: Butter Brickle.
.

.
.
.
we got lost. so Ms B and Russ asked the locals if they know which way to go to Bacolor
.
.
.
.
.
ms. B spoke with Jay's sister wondering if she happen to know where to find the church which sells some flowers. on the other hand, russ noticed something. the little market have this lot marker for sale together with their produce.
.
.
.
.
but russ ignore it, instead he bought some corn since he's famished.
.
.
.
.
.
while we are back on the road, i saw russ eating his corn, with such gusto.
.
.


so i grab some for myself. why not? lol =)



while munching on, we passed by elephant looking mountains, dancing trees and tempting cliffs.


.
.
at the end, we sat down and imagine how Mt. Pinatubo erupted last 1991

clark, 15 days more to go..

yet another Murakami's...



My first Haruki was introduced to me by a German mentor way way back when she handed me the book and said: “You should read him”


And so it began my fascination with this contemporary novelist: Haruki Murakami. A Japanese writer who already wrote several books that are quite revolutionary and captivating and he has this common theme for all of his works that involve with loneliness and alienation. I’ve already read 11 of his works. To mention some of the titles are (which is a collection of short stories and novels): “The Blind Willow and Sleeping Woman”, “The Wind-up Bird Chronicle” and “After Dark”.


One of the books that totally turn me nuts is his book entitled “Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World”. It is a story with two split yet paralleled narratives. One from the perspective of the man who’s working as a “Calcutec” for this old scientist that deals with newly found research about human evolution. His work includes shuffling, encoding data using the structure of his brain as an encoding key, which makes him a human encryption device. His job however leads to his journey, both figuratively and literally, into his subconscious world.


On every alternative chapter is the story of the man who found himself settling to a walled village where dreams (memories) are infused to a unicorn’s skull. He’s also faced with people who don’t have any idea of their past and soon he realizes also gradually losing his. Eventually, he must make a decision whether to give up his past or reunite with the present.


It is a two way narrative story that converges at the end with a deep look at issues of identity and it exploded with an erratic nature of Human Mind.

Whimsical, provocative and absolutely mind bugling.. Hail to Murakami

SOS






Pictures taken, while waiting for russ at the terraces,
He txted me out of the sudden last Saturday night
I was about to sleep by then but I know
There must be something going on once
He waived that SOS flag.

We later have coffee at starbucks and had our usual
chat. I think he’s fine now, or still trying to be fine..

Hehe, ey Russ..

move up




UP cookout 2009-08-11
a yearly tradition since UPHigh
with russ and karla
but before that
I said tc to Pat
a free ride
a free medium rare steak
a plateful of rice
hot and yeah was for free
thanks pat, thanks russ, thanks unknown sales clerks
a good laugh from Badidi
a nice rock lady singing paramour cover
a great night

To do list:_____1.) Do the laundry

A bed sheet
That has not been washed

For 8 weeks
Still clinging into my feet

An intermittent itch
A heightened sensation

Pillows, pillows and pillows
Buried my face, my mind, my soul, in a deep hiatus

Canopies of blankets
Sending warmth, humming lullabies, films of dust

With reeking smell of
Last night’s rum and cigarette

Why can’t I
Not let go of you

Still am, Lost
in a daydream

Smudged with regret
And what could have been

What could be the nice combination?
Of laundry bleach or detergents

To wash you off
To get rid of you
To forget

Smearing my eyes with pain

Just that

First off,
U never knew what I’ve been through
There’s no way
Or any chance
A question
Like
“Wazzup?”
Could bring it all up

the pain, The bitterness
Brown and black
rusting inside my throat
Choking and degrading
thus, I cant say anything
But for you to feel
ten thousand nails
These are murmuring
Inside my clasping hands
Hence, Would not,
In any chance
Will rise up

So please,
I beg you
Don’t castigate me further
As I’m already in the verge
Of fading
I demand
some level of respect
or at least, some kindness
even just a bit of it

as what I see fit

Lemme taste ur strawberries

It would be nice
To get lost into ur strawberry fields
Wandering around
Under the cloudless blue sky’
Where mountains are whistling
And cotton candies are riding with the wind
I will catch it with my mouth
Where it melts on my tongue
Blowing bubbles
Tiny weenie explosive balloons
Like minute atomic bombs
Which burst on ur hair
How it would be like
Getting lost
and stumble into u
I will climb over ur fence
And taste ur strawberries
Hmmm
It taste delicious
Hmmm
Yummy
Hmmm
I like it

I will be forever smiling,
I guess...
