It was my first time visit an Ondoy-affected community a while ago. The whole place was muddy and thrashed. It looked like a war-zone. The idea of getting these people back on their feet is still up in the sky, but I guess we have to start somewhere very low on the ground.
Prayer for Generosity
Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous; teach me to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to seek reward, except that of knowing that I do your will. Amen. -St. Ignatius of Loyola
Me: Isn't it weird that good deeds are refered to as humanistic and not god-like
Dad: Depends on who says it. Fr. Soc says everything is grace.
Me: Fair enough, you are indeed a wise man.
Dad: Thank you. That's why I'm your father.
Long Day, Longer Week
Woke up today decided on studying for my exam on thursday, so I did. I had a wonderful breakfast, tapa and bacalao with garlic rice. Headed over to CBTL to get my study on. Got a text saying classes are suspended the whole week due to the calamity. Headed over to the frathouse to help pack some goods. Helped plan the goods distribution for tom. Chilled at DVs place after. Got some Tdragon dinner....
I wanna be Dante Barbado Salvador Jr.!– Ralph Lim, upon seeing DS and Crystal hugging in a picture
Me: Pop, buy the d700 na! I heard its like God's eyes
Dad: Easy ka lang, maraming naghihirap sa Pilipinas
Me: don't worry, I solde the d80 so i can donate. The less fortunate now has food, clothes and condoms
Dad: Sira! Hindi nga?
Me: Just kidding, I donated out of my own allowance. But i wasn't kidding about the "God's eyes" part.
Dad: ... (disconnected)

on tv and youtube I’ve seen wild demonstrations by students in hoodies, police brutality and a massive display of security along the streets of Pittsburgh

Me: Dude, kelan uli 420 meet? Ayos na ung evo
Ralph: Ulol?? Bakit ang bilis??
Me: Speedy fix
Ralph: bwahahaha pun intended amp. Pwede na pang ad yun

Some volunteers got up one day and thought of doing something great for the flood victims. I can just imagine the value of this effort and awareness it has spread all over the world. One of the best moments of the WWW. Congrats to whoever thought of this.

Being Bad Feels Pretty Good
Football On My Mind
The whole day I could not stop thinking about playing. I need to feel the rush again, that burst of speed and adrenaline… I believe football has been my saving grace since the start of med school. No other stress reliever comes close.

Misery... loved the company
Feeling really blessed now and at the same time detached from the rest of the miserable Metro Manila. Can’t help but think of all the disease this flood would bring. Can’t help but think of how much less traffic manila will have because of all the busted cars. Can’t help but think about how much money car-shops will get out of repairing all of those. Can’t help but think...

As I was smoking outside my porch this morning, I saw a bird flying amidst the bad weather. It is really windy today, as if its bordering signal number two in my side of the city. Seeing this bird made me realize something amazing. In physics, we all know that work is the sum of all forces accounted for. Now if you were to move forward but something was pushing you back, you would have to...
The Running Culture
Its slowly reaching me, invading my space. It runs, at a steady pace. A run that ironically reaches me slowly. It allures me with its funky running shoes, so soft and peppy. It invites me with girls wearing short and tight tank-tops. It tempts me. With music it sets the mood, an appropriate theme to every possible human emotion. Its quite simple yet vague. There is no goal, only the run....
They’ve done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.– Brian Fantana, Anchorman (2004)
I just played futsal with my sister. I had fun. I hope she plays more. 2012 wins against 2014 1-0. Great job girls (Jo-Anne, Kitts, Tricia and Richelle). During the game I got tackled by a girl and I fell flat on my back. Coy… that is her name, and the adjective doesn’t suit her! Great tackle though.
