All My Love

This song tops my favorite list.
Maybe someday, when everything is perfectly designed to happen... I'll give All My Love... and will be loved in return...

Almost every weekend, we had a little lunch get together on different homes, getting crazy over Pinoy food favorites. Sharing and exchanging stories, laughing and learning at new experiences at the same time. No big fuss or extravagant "gala" yet. Just a simple bonding to make us all feel we're not that far from home. c",)

Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight


Take my hand

Australia Day!

It's Australia's day today.
We were planning to go to Gold Coast but other priorities came up. So, alternative go-to place? No one bothers at all. And so, today, some went to a shopping mall, near our place, some went to the city, and some, well, I don't know. As for me, I'll stay home. Burying myself to whatever I think I could do: sleep, eat, sleep, watch tv, sleep, surf the net, sleep, sleep, sleep...
I wanted to talk to someone, but I know, busy...
I wanted to talk to someone else, but I know, I'll just get no reply.
I wanted to talk to someone someone else, but I know, shrug...
I guess I don't know someone or anyone to talk to...
Oh well, I'll just enjoy the day the way I know... sleep!

When you matter

Magic 8ball

I was at a toy store of a shopping mall one time when a group of highschool girls, were giggling over a shelf of boxes with round object inside. They caught my attention since each one of them (they were 5) holds a box, whispering something to the box then will shake it and then will peak into the hole in the box, in synchronize.
I smiled as I heard names of boys after every sentence. Out of my curiosity, I approached one of them and ask, what is it. "ate, Magic 8ball po, magtatanong ka tapos i-shake lang po tas may sagot na lalabas dito sa may butas, babasahin lang po".
After reading the instructions, I left the girls still with line up of questions for the Magic 8ball to answer.
Sometimes we tend to seek answers for our questions in life, irregardless of its significance, in the most easy, unusual way. Who doesn't want an instant answer to all the questions bothering the hell out of our thoughts specially if it's questions of the heart? Does he misses me? Is he thinking about me? Does he loves me? etc etc.
It may be a silly thing to do for some, but heck, whatever answers it gives you, either a smile or a frown or a doubt on your face. There's still the excitement of what could be the answer. The anticipation gives you goose bumps.
The thing is, the answers for the so many questions still to unravel within time. We do not depend our decisions and plans on whatever instant answers we get. We work hard on it, we pray, we hope.
Try it, Magic 8ball, and have fun!

from Wikipedia: The Magic 8 Ball is a toy used for fortune-telling or seeking advice.
The Magic 8 Ball is a hollow plastic sphere resembling an oversized, black and white 8-ball. Inside is a cylindrical reservoir containing a white, plastic, icosahedral die floating in alcohol with dissolved dark blue dye. The die is hollow, with openings in each face, allowing the die to fill with fluid, giving the plastic die minimal buoyancy. Each of the 20 faces of the die has an affirmative, negative, or non-committal statement printed on it in raised letters. There is a transparent window on the bottom of the Magic 8 Ball through which these messages can be read.
To use the ball, it must be held with the window initially facing down. After "asking the ball" a yes-or-no question, the user then turns the ball so that the window faces up, setting in motion the liquid and die inside. When the die floats to the top and one of its faces is pressed against the window, the raised letters displace the blue liquid to reveal the message as white letters on a blue background. Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary (or recommended) to shake or jostle the ball before turning it, as doing so can create air bubbles that may visually distort the answer.
