Masaya naman. Masarap ang pasta. Yung first 16 pix, ako may hawak ng cam. Yung rest, hiniram ni Dave ang cam ko.

After, nagpunta kaming Komedya play na “Prisipe Something” nina Cath, Demi, Maricar, Leo, Benj at Noah. Ayun, nadrain na ang battery after 3 days, kaya di ko nakunan ang fireworks after. Ampf

Possessed: An I-Have-An-Exam-Tomorrow-But-I’m-Too-Cocky-To-Review Post

Weird. My PC’s CD drive is possessed. It suddenly popped open with nobody touching it. A moment later, it closed. And then several seconds after, it popped open again. I waited for it to close, but several minutes later, it’s still open, and so I manually closed it. Yet again, it opened as if somebody’s playing a prank on me. But then, I was alone when this happened – my roommate wasn’t around. Imagine my horror upon seeing my CPU with the CD drive open; suddenly it looked like it had evil blood-shot eyes and sticking its tongue out. So, I didn’t touch it.

Eventually, it strained its jaw muscles so it withdrew its tongue once again. But the spirit that has possessed my CPU was relentless; it just didn’t stop and enjoyed my casual cursing and sudden jolts of paranoia every time it sticks out its tongue dripping with reeking fluid from hell. (haha, biglang naging fiction :p)

Revolution Is Not The Answer

Originally posted by Dino.  An interesting opinion, and one that expresses my views, about the current events hounding the Macapagal administration.


by Daniel Pineda

There is a conspiracy going on here. With the current issues swarming the Palace by storm, it’s easy to be ignorant, to dismiss our own critical minds, and to go with the tide. And by going with the tides of the sea, we often forget that in the end, even tidal waves end up to sand. It’s about time that we realize that we are not driftwood or seaweed or seawater. We are men and women. We are Filipinos. Think about it.


If there is one thing we should have known by now from contemporary Philippine history, it is that almost nothing occurs on its own. Ever since the Americans arrived, there is hardly an instance that a Filipino stood up alone for his or her belief. Everything has been part of a greater scheme ran by those who want to grab power or those who want to stay in power. Either this wanting for position be of noble causes or not, it has produced little (or nothing) of Filipino ingenuity and has even made intellectual fools of Filipinos. By drafting in certain terms too big to handle for a country with mostly uneducated folk, we have taught our hearts to forget our minds and stand up, fight, and die for a freedom, for a truth, for a sovereignty, for a civil democracy, which we, as a people, never really knew the meaning of. Thus, results an unripe revolution.


Again, there is a conspiracy going on here and it’s been running for more than two decades now. The Filipino has been kept blind and dumb to see it. We have been talking about “people power” or “civilian empowerment” but this never is the case. We stand proud for bloodless revolutions but we have been patronizing military rule all along. Another call for a street parliament would merely result to another dissatisfaction and consequently, another street parliament. There never is anything constitutional with EDSA revolutions.


In political science, Locke and Rousseau noted that in order for a government to work properly, it must have a working social contract between the government and its people. This is evident through the presence of elections. Through an election we are able to void or renew a contract of a certain official, officially. The peoples’ votes will be transmuted into works of gratitude by the duly elected government officials. There is accountability in writ on the part of the government, as well as for the people, to work for one anothers’ good. But how have we been changing the administrations for the past few years? Through “people power”. It is obviously NOT an efficient way to change governments. It does not comply with the idea of a contract between citizen and government. Rather, it only justifies contracts of personal value to the President. In the cases of Corazon Aquino and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, “beneficiaries” of the two EDSA Revolutions respectively, they have mostly justified their debts of gratitude to the military, not to the people who have put them to power. And we can only expect more of the iron fist, more of the unexplained disappearances, more of the corruption, more of the hardcore nepotism, more of the illogical discipline, more of the mud-slinging, non-progressive government in a military-ran administration. Although, it is not entirely their fault that their loyalty is leaned towards the military. They need the military and the unwavering Filipino institution of utang ng loob is immensely powerful in working the gears of government. From the moment they stepped in as Presidents, they owe it to the military. And as they further survive the office, they STILL owe most of it to the military, not to the people. It is important to note that in a street parliament, the final, most important step in attaining office is through military support.


Military power is always an important factor for surviving in office. Perhaps Marcos has made the military too big to stop and too big to contain. Corazon Aquino owes most of her stay in office to the military having survived dozens of coups by means of military counteraction. In her selection of whom to endorse to her personal selections too, Mitra would have been an obvious choice since he was loved by the people. Although, in the end, she chose Ramos as her payment of gratitude to Ramos’ relentless military reinforcement. GMA has been a favorite of the military and mutually favors the military, this has been very visible. From the beginning, it is quite an omen that the military was the first group of people GMA thanked in her acceptance speech. To add to this, how come Angelo Reyes, a vital general to the deposition of Erap, never lost a position in her cabinet? Furthermore, 40% of the government’s budget has always been set aside for military amidst the lack of education in the country. “People power” revolutions have produced less of a people-powered government than a military-ran government.


In today’s booming case of the Jun Lozada expose of what he says to be “is the truth”, it is definitely leading to another mob rule. And if there should be a difference with this case with all the past “revolutions” it is that this one has the obvious workings of ex-military and non-constitutionalism in it. People lustful for power with a mix of those who are working on the sidelines motivated by family feud or revenge, some of which might not even have a pinch of nobility in their intentions, have all been working together to get us all on our feet and rise against the government. For one, these people who want GMA out ALSO do not want Noli de Castro, the Vice President, to take the place instead. This does not in any way spell constitutional. This is an obvious manifestation of personal desires. And they say that our constitution has been violated? Come to think of it, the powers working behind the removal of GMA are people who work with the simplistic principles of military. Before you know it, another batch or another head honcho of some military group would come up with the notion that the new President (if there should ever be) is lacks with this or that and another coup will take place. Another vital difference of this case with the past cases is that the media, the one owned particularly by the Lopezes has obviously been partial in making the thought of a revolution popular and true. During Martial Law, media was OWNED by the Marcoses. Jim Paredes’ display of the Laban! symbol in television was then punishable by death. Now, even a whole coverage of a rally is allowed and no one gets kidnapped for it. So, don’t exaggerate the facts. Be critical. Democracy is still present in our country. The mere thought that we are now living in a second Martial Law would be an insult to those who lived and died during those harsh times. Think about it, are we actually living in fear? Bravery nowadays has been reduced to mere opposition which is not at all true. It might as well be equated to foolishness if that be the case.


The same is true with our neighboring countries here in Asia. We’re lucky enough that we still get to live with our lives. On the other hand, as the cycle of “people power” and military adventurism ate them up, they have completely lost their democracy.


Nevertheless, we need not look further than our own history to learn our lessons. We need to stop the thought of another people power uprising, not while most of us remain illiterate, not while 80% of us remain poor, not while we remain blinded by ignorance or arrogance. If we must dispose of the current administration, let it be done through constitutional means. And the constitution calls for people power through an election, NOT A REVOLUTION.


Disclaimer: I am not discounting the need for a revolution during the Marcoses’ conjugal dictatorship. That was definitely an extreme case (an obvious, explicit display of the cruelties of Martial Law). And, there’s a first time for everything. It’s just that, now, twenty three years after the EDSA revolution, hopefully, we have learned our lesson. A “revolution” is not the answer.

My friend Jerome (click here for his multiply page) asked for a favor.  He needed a most recent whole body picture as a requirement of some sort.  So I agreed (di n’ya lang alam pinag-practice-san ko lang s’ya haha… Peace Yep! Ü).  Here’s a photo of him doing the Wawen Sign. :p (bawal daw kasi i-post ang iba… hehe)



After Whammy and Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, GMA7 murdered yet another show.  The victim this time is Freemantle’s Idol franchise.  Probably the world’s most successful reality talent search (after Endemol’s Academy franchise :p), GMA7 just killed the franchise by selecting Jolina Magdangal as one of the judges.  She’s supposed to be Pinoy Idol’s Paula Abdul.  C’mon, what’s Jolina’s achievements compared to Paula’s (click here, for Paula’s credentials).  Seriously, somebody should stop the foreign franchise show serial killer that is GMA7.

U.P. In the Minds Of Its Past Presidents

I already have my UP Centennial Planner.  A month after placing my order, I went back to the USC office to claim two copies of the planner (the other one is for my dad).  I originally didn’t plan on buying one (kasi USC ang nagbebenta, gagamitin na naman sa rally-rally :p peace Kareen), but I realized that this would make a good collector’s item so I bought one.It is more than just a planner.  It contains a lot of UP-related facts and trivia, and even has notes on dates of special events in the history of the University.  It also has reminders on the year-long schedules of events that are part of the centennial celebration.

But what’s rather interesting are snippets (from speeches or editorials, I guess) regarding the takes of former Presidents of the University on the essence and importance of the University.  One pretty intriguing point however, is that only the quote from present President Roman differs in that it’s about her being the first woman President of the University (her being so is more important to the editors, I think).  Also, the editors must have overlooked that President Virata (1956-1958) was not included.

Anyway, these are the quotes from the past UP Presidents:

It is therefore well understood that a university remains the center of education of various branches of human knowledge and its main purpose is substantially to preserve the life and promote the progress of nations.     UP President Ignacio Villamor (1915-1921)

Academic freedom is not an inherent right of a man working in a university, but a constitutional or man-given right intended to give him the widest opportunity to discover truth and teach truth…  Academic freedom is never meant to be a license for making irresponsible statements, for indulging in destructive criticism and for mixing in partisan politics.  In short, academic freedom, or freedom of any kind in a free society, is inseparably associated with responsibility and is never absolute.     UP President Vidal Tan (1951-1956)

The University must hold the balance between the force of universalism, which is inherent in its nature, and the force of nationalism, which is inherent in its purpose.  It must be hospitable to all ideologies and philosophies.  Instead of closing windows that are already open, we should open windows that are still closed.  The intellectual life of the University would thus be a creative blend of that which exists in the country and in the world as a whole.  This is the kind of university to which the University is ineluctably committed.    UP President Salvador Lopez (1969-1975)

The UP will be a superfluous adornment to the country if it exists simply for the selfish benefit of those who enjoy its advantages.  It will fail utterly unless it stimulates an effective and well-distributed social service; unless it raises the standard of living for all the people; unless it promotes the general comfort and happiness without making a privileged class who enjoys a monopoly of the so-called “good things in life;” unless it idealized the home as the chief cornerstone of civilization.    UP President Guy Potter Benton (1921-1925)

Our students must stand out not only for clear, objective and critical thinking, not alone for intellectual ability and leadership in their chosen fields, but also for their nationalism and genuine caring for our people.  To be form UP is to accept a sacred trust of leadership and service to the people.    UP President Emil Javier (1993-1999)

It is eminently fitting and wise that institutions of higher learning of the various nations should now and then gather in common counsel to affirm their inherent character as sanctuaries of truth which is untinged and unswayed by race or opinion.    UP President Jorge Bocobo (1934-1939)

It would seem that our educational program should not stop at emphasizing and cultivating love for work.  It should also penalize distaste for labor.  It should discourage superficiality and reward thoroughness.    UP President Bienvenido Gonzalez (0939-1943, 1945-1951)

The University must move with the times – to carry out fully its mission in its country and thus aid in solving our national problems.  It is our bounden duty to help the State in the solution of its manifold problems especially in a country “still in the springside of life, as in the Philippines.”  Thus the University should be willing and ready at all times to answer all questions to unveil the past, to counsel the present, and to predict the future.    UP President Rafael Palma (1925-1933)

If the University should engage in the politics of ideas, it should lend itself to the expression of viewpoints other than the conventional and established orthodoxies, so that it be neither advocate nor adversary, but a catalyst and an enriching agent.    UP President Onofre Corpuz (1975-1979)

One of the most cherished aims of higher education is the greater self-awareness that results from it, a sense of one’s capacity and worth as an individual in a society of free and fully functioning individuals.  To my mind, what is this but self-identification which, carried to its most exalted purpose, becomes nationalism?  With this clear before us, it is evident that nationalism becomes consistent with the idea of a university.  Indeed, it becomes a necessary component, for no one has ever achieved universality without the integrity that comes from the realization of one’s unique position in the cosmos.    UP President Carlos P. Romulo (1962-1968)

Our expertise is the reduction of social outrage to reasoned critique, of impassioned demand to coherent program.  The clarification of issue, the discovery of facts the exposure of distortion and lies, and the presentation of reasoned alternatives… they are the best contributions we can make to the causes we choose to support.  They define the role of the University in a society like ours.    UP President Edgardo Angara (1981-1987)

We do not forget that our present is built in our past, and that the dynamism of heart and mind that we experience today belongs to a great tradition.  We are reaping today what others before us have sown.  And those who come after us will in turn gather the harvest of our dreams.    UP President Emanuel Soriano (1979-1981)

You are living the University of the Philippines during one of the most critical times in the history of our country…  The tasks attendant upon every citizen of a world passing through the painful stages of a historical transition leave no room for idle drifting.  Work should be the keynote of our people, now and always.    UP President Antonio Sison (1943-1945)

The pursuit of academic excellence is the avowed mission of every university.  But often, this is just a meaningless cliché.  To be meaningful, this mission has been translated into concrete goals, given the resources available to the University and the needs of our country at the turn of the century.    UP President Francisco Nemenzo, Jr. (1999-2005)

This university should not be a reproduction of the American University.  If it is to blossom into real fruit, it must grow on Philippine soil.  It must not be transplanted from foreign shores.  It can serve the world best by serving best the Filipinos.    UP President Murray Bartlett (1911-1915)

The University is a partner of government rather that a collaborator.  It keeps a critical detachment from its policies and official acts, but is never aloof.  It is grateful for its share in the national budget, but keeps its autonomy.  It is by nature constructively critical, and zealous of its freedom; but inspired by the moral integrity and selfless dedication of public servants; it commits itself wholeheartedly through its teaching and research to the support of national goals and the realization of our people’s aspiration.    UP President Jose Abueva (1987-1993)

There is but one cause which can effectively write finis to UP’s existence.  And that is when it can no longer advance the frontiers of human knowledge; when it ceases to be an instrument of intellectual freedom; when students and professors in their classrooms and laboratories grovel in abject obedience to authority; when it submits its judgment to outside directives.    UP President Vicente Sinco (1958-1962)

While the idea of being UP’s first woman President sounds exciting, I know very well that in the end, people will judge me not on the basis of my being a woman, but on the basis of my performance and accomplishments.  However, during quiet solitary moments, I catch myself in the act of thinking, “You had better do a good job so people will conclude that women do indeed make better presidents than men!”    UP President Emerlinda Roman (2005-present)

Have You Tasted Wawen Lemons?

It’s all in the blog title you know. :p
***shameless use of interesting title to catch blog-readers’ attention hehe

Anyway, I got this from Jesse.  Do you think I am really a lemon?

You Are a Lemon
You have a very distinct personality. And if you’re not being sweet, you’re a little hard to take.
You’re a bit overpowering, especially in one on one situations.

And while you are very dominant, sometimes your power is needed and appreciated.
You can liven up a dull situation, and you definitely bring a fresh outlook.

You are a bit of an acquired taste, and you tend to grow on people over time.
People feel refreshed and rejuvenated after spending time with you.

A Mayonnaise Jar And Two Cups Of Coffee

*** This was posted by And somehow, this hit me big time so I’m sharing this to all of you. Ü

A professor teaches his students a lesson about what’s really important in life
By Laura Bankston

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember this story about a mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee…

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded
to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The
pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor! next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of
course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar
was full. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students
laughed. ‘Now,’ said the professor, as the laughter subsided, ‘ I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things-your God, family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions-things that if everything else was lost and only
they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else- the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf
balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important.’

So, pay attention to the things that are most important. Take care of your health–cook with your kids!– spend time with those you love.

There’s always time to clean the house–it’s a never ending job anyway :-).

Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

Wondering what the coffee represents?

No matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple cups of coffee with a friend — or a soda if you’re like me and don’t drink coffee!!

The Ultimate (Korean) Love Story Of All Time

No, it’s not Sassy Girl, nor Windstruck, nor Full House, nor Coffee Prince, nor Princess Hours, not even It Started With A Kiss.  All of the above mentioned Korean Films and TV Series are great in their own rights, but nothing really compares to The Classic [2003] (click here for the plot, but do not if you’re planning to watch this).

So far, it is my favorite love story.  The film tells two love stories; first, a love so great that the guy is willing to sacrifice his own happiness just to give his girl a better (but not necessarily happier) life, and second, a love so pure that the guy is afraid to confess his feelings, fearing that the girl doesn’t feel the same.  Classic love stories right?  And on top of that, the musical scores, lighting, texture and cinematography all work together to tell a sweeter story.

For a hopeless romantic that is into serious relationships like me, this is the perfect love story.  This is great for Valentines. Ü

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone! Ü  Chinese culture really has a large influence in us Filipinos: food, beliefs, and even customs.  And I believe it is even much more so in our family since my father is half chinese.

Anyway, what I really want to talk about is my zodiac sign.  Ever since I was a kid, I considered myself under the “rabbit” zodiac.  But just last week, my friend Cath, upon reading a planner with the chinese zodiacs in it, she insisted that I am a “tiger” (because technically, I was born before the Chinese new year: January 17).  But I refuse to accept that, I’ve already come to love my being a “rabbit”. :p

So, just to make a comparison between the two, and to help me decide on which zodiac will I pick, I searched both zodiacs over the net and found these interesting facts:

Rabbit.  People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

Tiger.  Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes tiger people come into conflict with older people or those in authority. sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful. Tigers are most compatible with Horses, Dragons, and Dogs.

Interestingly, I am a little of each zodiac!  Can’t I be both? Ü
