    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.

    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...

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...

    Mornings with Mama

        I was told that she only has a few days left and there’s nothing else that can be done. My world crumbled to pieces; the lights dimmed in the hallway where I was standing and breathing became harder as every second pass. I couldn’t open my mouth, speak a word, or lest, look [&hellip...

    #Fallen44: Our Anger, Frustration, and Cry

        I don’t usually involve myself in commenting about political issues, but I’d like to differ today because more than just being political on the matter; I believe this is already more of a personal attack on humanity that threatens us all as Filipinos. For some this may not be an issue, most especially [&hellip...
