    Food on the Table

      The traffic was terrible. Cars flooded the streets and the construction of the new skyway greatly contributed to the congestion. The noise of the busy city that clouded our ears is the same noise that drowned the strong heartbeat that my Tito must’ve felt as we neared the airport. I  can only imagine…   [&hellip...

    And so it is true after all these years… the possibility of time travel.   If there is one moment in your life that you wish you could go back to, what would it be?   The recent discovery of gravitational waves opened doors for our frail and feeble humanity to kick in. Moreso, this [&hellip...

    That Moment

      November 21, 2014 – The world won’t stop for us, it continues to roll in the way we’ve known it to, ever since we were messy little rascals inside the four corners of our very first classroom. 24 hours before it completes a full rotation translating to day and night for us and 365 [&hellip...

    Hello, Diin Ka?

      Tired from all the day’s work accompanied by a hot humid weather; I was already lying flatly on my bed when an unexpected phone call came in the middle of the night…   “F*ck! Sin-o na gatawag man!?”   As Ilonggo as I could get, I tried to compose myself while I dragged myself [&hellip...

    The City of Pains (Pines)

      “I miss the cold”, I told myself as I was forcing myself to sleep. My room was filled with silence from every corner and the emptiness I feel deep down just keeps getting stronger. There is no escape. I don’t know of any other way, but to depart from this mess and start looking [&hellip...

    Nightclubs Are Dying Because I Don’t Party Anymore

    It was just like any ordinary night out of the house, but it felt completely different…   I took a step back from our table and carefully watched my friends drown themselves in loud music, blinding lights, and thick smoke coming from the fog machine. Everybody was dancing like there’s no tomorrow. I stood still [&hellip...

    It Will Always Be Christmas

      I slowly twisted the bottle cap and listened to the hissing sound as trapped air escaped from the plastic bottle. The sound reminded me of so much things lolo used to tell me when we used to share the 2 liters together with a warm pandesal and pancit bihon on random afternoons. I slowly poured [&hellip...

    Ang True Love ni Papel #Part2

    Naranasan mo na bang sumikat?   Lahat tayo gusto nun. Malamang libo-libo kung hindi milyon-milyon ang magsasabi ng oo kung tatanungin mo sila isa-isa. Gusto nating makilala, gusto nating mapansin, makilala, hangaan, at makilala. Oo alam ko, paulit-ulit! Nakakainis di ba!?   Makilala… Makilala… Makilala…   Sino ba namang may ayaw, lalo na kung ang [&hellip...

    Ikaw Na Tito Boy!

        It all started with a tweet, but NO I say; it all started when one brave professional young artist dared to speak out about a very sensitive fact that could’ve probably ended some of his good relationship with friends in the industry.   I hope not.   Rhap Salazar’s tweet became very controversial [&hellip...

      July 12, 2013 05:33PM   Dear whoever ka man na nakakabasa nito,   Napariwara ako. Nabaliw. Naloka. Nawala sa katinuan… Lahat ng yun isinisisi ko sa pag-ibig at mga pangakong hindi nakayang tuparin ng mga taong minsang nagparamdam sa akin na may forever…   Tawagin niyo na akong malandi, salawahan, pokpok, at kung anu-ano pa [&hellip...

    Ang True Love ni Papel

        Nangyari ang kuwentong ito sa isang madilim na eskinita sa Quiapo kung saan naglipana ang mga kawatan, holdaper, at sawi sa pag-ibig…   Minsan pakiramdam ko  ako si Superman; nakakagala, nakakalipad, at nakakapasyal sa kung saan-saan. Masaya sana kaso marami rin akong nakikitang malulungkot na pangyayari sa paligid ko. Marami akong nakikita at nakakasalamuhang [&hellip...

    Moving Out Is Only Fun When You Think About It

      I know what you’re thinking and I fairly understand your dilemma of your nosy parents being up your arse in all things you do. At most times you’ll feel like you’re deprived of the freedom you deserve; like, c’mon mom, it’s not like I’m spending your money in all my shits. Time and again, the [&hellip...

    Esto Quod Es (Be What You Are)

      I’ve never been a fan of self portraits. I grew up believing that I’m not for the camera; lest, if I can even fit in the frame. I always shy away from the sight of the lens and made sure that I’m no more than a background making all others look good before me. [&hellip...
