    moody monday: colorful

    who would blame me for loving the color blue?

    took this photo last month in one of the hidden gems of subic. club morocco.
    tho this gem needs a little polishing and the management is clearly doing something about it.

    if you've been there, you wouldnt mind seeing those ships and cargos parked by the distance as long as you stay in the pool.

    alas! it would have been lovelier if i spent the sunset strolling by the beach with you*.*

    note: long awaited entry for moody monday

    the long wait..

    “Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.” - Paulo Coelho

    to those who kept on returning and checking on this blog, thank you.

    i have been in hiatus for months
    but it doesn't mean i have forgotten this place.
    it doesn't mean that i will stop painting,
    drawing, taking photos and writing poems.
    some of these were indeed placed on hold for a while,
    while i wait for time to stop.

    sometimes i wish to hold time and wish a day
    to never end. sometimes i wish time could move
    fast forward to that day,
    that day
    which i wish to not end.
    but these only happens in dreams
    and some dreams seemed reality.
    while reality sometimes seems
    to be dreams.

    since the time i have gone, i've been to places
    where i wish to never leave. and soon as i got back
    i look back
    and my memories feel like everything was just a dream.
    my only proof for myself
    are the photos i have taken,
    and the memories that kept on running over and over
    in my head.

    i do not feel confused, but it whirls me in the cycles
    in my mind. please don't confuse this as something sad,
    for it was lovely. all lovely.
    the time spent on those places were memories that i wish
    to not forget. but i guess they were all
    too lovely to last.

    and the only sad thing is..
    the wait.
    for it all to happen again.

    and while you wait,
    while we wait,
    this blog is under construction. my apologies..

    now i leave you all with an old poem i wrote and a photo i took while traveling to southern manila..

    Don't Close Your Eyes

    as i hear the -
    leaves crash to the wind
    walls of echoes
    paint my deserted room
    the linen adrift
    flying floating
    as cold whispers
    wrap my whole being

    as i close my -
    eyes in deep longing
    i float more lighter
    almost liquefying
    swimming to that shadow
    to drink the poison
    of its undying spell
    drowning my head in compassion

    as i feel the -
    whole world spinning
    catch the waves tightly holding
    take me to the other side
    carry me.. carry me..
    and let me continuously fly
    as the breeze swallow me
    in one big.. deep.. sigh

    String: Blog Action Day 2008

    Today marks the day of a special event in the history of the blogworld. The purpose of Blog Action Day is to create a discussion. Bloggers are asked to take a single day out of their schedule and focus it on an important issue. Last year's topic was The Environment. This year we focus on the mammoth issue of global Poverty.

    Growing up, we were taught that we live in a third world country. And there are limits to what we can do and what we can get. I've always been a big dreamer when I was young and I always wanted to prove the grown ups wrong that we can only do as much. I also used to be a strong believer with the statement Kung hindi ka kikilos ngayon, kelan pa? ("If you won't act now, then when?")

    Here are the facts:

    The map of the world with classifications:

    First (blue), Second (red), and the Third World (green) countries during the Cold War era. Does not necessarily represent a current world view.

    But according to the list of third world countries, the Philippines is not included in terms of Political Rights and Civil Liberties, Gross National Income (GNI), Human Development, Poverty and Press Freedom.

    There are 50 countries listed in the United Nations comparative analysis of poverty, 34 African countries, 10 Asian countries, 5 Pacific Island Nations and one Caribbean nation.

    The 10 Asian third world countries are: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Laos, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Timor-Leste and Yemen.

    And just recently have I encountered the term fourth world, and these are nations without states. But that's another story.

    I guess, now that I have passed the age of idealism, agitated adolescence with radical actions, adding that i went through a personal dark age of my life.. time killed the passion. I remain in support and still believe the causes of course, but not as active as before.

    Now joining the blog action day reminds me that time is really an issue with the long battle against poverty and change. One random act of kindness per person, when accumulated, creates change.

    So I leave a question for everyone, if we won't act now, when will you? When?

    update: now i leave you with an old collage i made back in 2005.. "hidden places"
    click the image to read the poem i wrote esp for this piece
