My Two Cents

I was expecting the the decision in favor of Webb et. al. Alfaro was not a credible witness for me, her 'credibility' as a witness was too much publicized, even made into a movie..

At the end of the day, proof beyond reasonable doubt has always been equivalent to moral certainty which in this case was not present.

The rationale according to a known legal mind of Proof beyond reasonable doubt is that "it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

Yun lang. Read the decision. HERE!

Life without limbs

We watched this during our retreat. Very inspiring. :)

"there are some times in life when you fall down, you feel like you dont have the strength to get back up. DO you think you have hope? Because i tell you im down here face down, and I have no arms and legs. It should be impossible for me to get back up, but its not. You see ill try 100x to get up. And if i fail 100x, if i fail 100x and i give up, do you think im never gonna get up? No! But if I fail and try again, and again and again. I just want you to know that it's not the end, it matters how you gonna finish. and you gonna finish strong, and you will find that strength to get back this. "-- Nick Vujicic

It was just barely two months from the first time they’ve met, talked and shared moments together.

The chance meeting was just timely for him. He just came from a break up. Robert, a musician usually hangs out in a coffeeshop to grab his coffee, sit for awhile with his ipod on, while doing some sketches in his sketch pad, if not trying to scribble down notes which eventually becomes part of his compositions.

In the most unexpected time and circumstance, the coffeeshop Robert used to frequent did not open in its usual time of 6AM. But since, he is a patron of the said coffesshop, he waited for a couple of minutes. A few minutes elapsed and he heard someone humming. While sitting on the gutter with his heads on his knees clamped together, a woman stood in front of him. The woman asked her if he has a lighter.

Robert instantly looked at his pocket and handed over the lighter to the woman.
The woman started talking. She told that she’s a patron of the same coffeeshop and that she wouldn’t try any other coffee other than the one being served there. She told Robert that the coffee shop will open an hour late as was posted the other day. She asked Robert if it’s okay that she sit beside him while waiting for the coffeeshop to open.

And so the woman continued talking. “You look like a musician.”, she said.
“Why did you say that?”, Robert replied.

Woman: “Hmm. You have long hair, you have a tattoo, and you have a sketchpad and a pen and, is that a notebook?.(the woman trying to get a hold of the notebook).”

Robert: Hmm, you’re pretty observant huh?!. So what do you do for a living?

Woman: Hmm.. Im a freelance photographer.

Well that’s cool. So where’s your camera?

It’s not with me right now. I left it in my place.

While the two continued talking, they didn’t notice that the coffeeshop is already open. It was only when he heard the stomach of the woman did some sound which signifies she’s starving that they’ve realized that they’ve been talking for quite a long time.

So they decided to go inside the coffeeshop and had breakfast. They continued talking and talking like they’re the only persons in the room, as if they’ve known each other for so long.

This scene at the coffeeshop became a daily thing for the two. No doubt they really enjoyed each other’s company.

Until one day, two months from the first time they have met, the woman didn’t show up in the coffeeshop. Robert waited for a few hours but still no sign of the woman was seen.

Robert continued to wait for the girl everytime he drops by at the coffeeshop. But still no sign nor shadow of the woman was seen.
Until one day, in the very same spot they usually sit and talk, he saw a note. The note says:

“I’m sorry but, I know you’re falling for me, I can see it in your eyes. And I don’t want that to happen. I don’t want you to fall for me.. That’s why I decided not to show up anymore.. We’ll see each other again, I know, in time..”

Robert was heartbroken. His strong yet faint heart never expected how swift their moments together would end.

Robert walked down the road. It was almost dusk. He walked, and walked, wondering why she would just left like that without even talking..

When Robert reached the river bank, he stopped. He sat on a bench nearby and started strumming his guitar, not knowing that the woman was on the other side of the river humming the very song Robert heard the first time they’ve met..

*A 20-minute impromptu short story hehe.. So please bear with the typos/grammatical errors :)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Just watched recently "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Thought that the movie was a bore at first but I was mistaken. The plot, story and cinematography was superb. Now I'd like to share some quotes from the movie which I liked and somehow inspired me. Hope you too get inspired.

"For what it's worth, it was never too late, or in my case too early to be whoever you want to be, there's no time limit. Stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst time. I hope you make the best of it."

"You can be mad as a mad dog with the way things went. You can square and curse fate. But when it comes to the end you have to let go."

"Our lives depend on opportunities, even those that we missed."

"You'll never know what's coming for you."

"Life can only be understood backward. It must be lived forward."

So it is my sembreak and as expected I need to unwind after a grueling semester. I need to forget everything that the semester that was. Well now you know the reason why I haven't updated this blog. Well there's not even much to talk about except my minor "extra-curricular activities"(insert evil grin haha!), since I was stuck in my law books.

Now, unwind to me means booze and party! But why in the world am I being a health freak right now?

Alright, to cut the long intro to this blog, I just found out I have ulcer. How timely was that? Two straight days that I have been feeling this pain in my abdomen that if only I had a gun I've pointed and pulled the trigger to it. The pain was excruciating. I had to forced myself to vomit just to release everything in my stomach and feel better.

So upon recommendation, I have to withdraw from taking alcohol, smoking, caffeine and carbonated drinks. So how am I going to enjoy the rest of my vacation? Damn stress that law school I have to endure, the ulcer must have been triggered by too much coffee and energy drink I drank during my hell week, that is my finals week and the pack of cigarettes I smoked, aside from the occassional "have-to-skip-meals" just to finish my readings or to sleep for long hours to compensate for my all-nighters.

Well, thank God, I get to enjoy once in a while.

October 19.

First off, a friend had free passes at Punchline Comedy bar in Quezon City, he invited me to come with other friends. I had one beer which luckily didn't cause anything unpleasant inside my stomach. It was a fun night. It was actually my first time to go there. There we saw Ethel Booba, and other comedians who sometimes appear on TV.

Now when we went home and after we dropped off a friend somewhere in Las Pinas my friend who's driving suddenly forgot the way off to the main gate of the subdivision. We were for a few minutes lost. A friend in the back seat suddenly instructed that my friend who's driving increase the volume of the radio. Well for a few seconds I felt goosebumps. My friend in the back seat told us that we have a company inside the car. I don't know if it was a coincidence that we were lost for a few moments and my friend in the backseat felt an unknown spirit.

October 21.

A good of friend of mine treated me for lunch after I did her tax paper. During our lunch she invited me to come at Pink Sisters, Tagaytay. I am not a religious person. But I think when you're in Law School if there's a chance that you could summon all the Gods to help you pass your subjects you would.

My friend often visits the Pink Sisters place, it is like a convent of sisters where people frequent if they have petitions or wishes. The sisters actually reply to your petitions so people usually indicate their addresses in the envelope where the petition is placed. We went there well mainly of course to pray and make a petition for us to pass our subjects, as well as our own personal wishes. We grabbed some snack after and then stopped by at some souvenirs and delicacies shop before we went home.

October 30

I was invited at a Halloween Party of my friend's advertising company. I really enjoyed this night. Since it was the first ever Halloween party I ever attended I was quite excited. I arrived at the party expecting that it was just a plain gathering. I was surprised that they really prepared for the event. There were decorations and they were in fact wearing costumes.

What I liked about the party was they invited a magician, Mr. Rickmann, if you're familiar with him he appeared at Talentadong Pinoy and other tv shows. Anyway, his tricks amazed us, though it is not uncommon for some of us to doubt but nevertheless he entertained us. He even revealed a trick to us which we could show to others and make a million pogi points.

October 31-November 1

All Saints Day/All Souls Day/Undas whatever you might call it, is one of the holidays of the year along with the Lenten Season which I don't like to come moreso to be observed. I know it's a time when we can relax and forget about our work or school for a moment, and remember our loved ones (which we can do anytime of the day) but I just don't like the idea that things are not normal. As I or you could have observed, you cannot see a lot of people on the streets, some malls are closed or if not, they open not in the usual time, there is no rush hour (though there are still traffic jam in some areas), people seem to be just laidback.

So, on the 31st day of October, I woke up early. Went to a nearby Mcdonald's to have breakfast and stayed for awhile while checking my social networking sites, thanks for the free wifi Mcdonald's! I went home to take a shower and meet up with my mom. After that I went to hear mass which I haven't done for quite sometime.

After hearing the mass, I decided to text a friend to accompany me to watch a movie, but she declined. So I texted another friend of mine, but he insisted that I go to SM Bacoor and meet him there. So instead of watching a movie we just strolled around. Until a friend of mine who's in Pampanga asked me if I want to go there. My friend who's just beside me overheard it, and so he insisted for us to have a Road Trip right there and then. Without any hesitations. Without any clothes or grooming stuffs. He, who's just wearing shorts and sandals, and I went off to Pampanga.

We arrived at Pampanga at around 12 midnight. My friend met us at the terminal and he decided to bring us first to the so-called Red Light District haha! After that we decided to find a place to stay. After finding a cheap motel where we can all fit in, we headed to a nearby bar and restaurant and grab a few drinks and food.

After the waiter signaled us that it's the last call already, we decided to call it a night.

We checked out from the motel at around 10AM. We headed to a nearby restaurant to have brunch but most of them were closed. Luckily there's a mall in there which has a restaurant open at that time so we just settled for it.

When the mall opened, we decided to stroll around. For the lack of time we didn't get the chance to go to Clark Pampanga. We decided to go home early as we have anticipated the heavy traffic of those going back to Manila. Luckily we arrived at North Edsa before the traffic buildup. So we headed to Trinoma and stroll again. After an hour we felt exhausted and so we decided to take the MRT to Ayala. When we reached Ayala we went to Glorietta and had dinner. After the dinner, we headed to Alabang and went home. It was fun, yet I found out that I just spent almost 3 thousand for that road trip, oh man!

Now, I'm trying to figure out if I'll succumbed to the CWC Camsur invite! Goodluck to my wallet and bank account!


Back to my ulcer, I just realized that I gained something (though not worth bragging! hehe)which Kurt Cobain has! I have a stomach disease like him! haha!!

Well, seriously I just hope this ulcer won't get in the way of my studies this semester, this semester is a make or break semester for me! So I need not be 'Pasaway' and 'Matigas ang Ulo' and MUST avoid my vices.

Imagine if he were alive.

My Political Law Review professor gave us a project entitled 'ROLE MODELS'. He made us choose our role models in life and we had to give a speech in front of the class. Since I am not really good in public speaking I practically just read my speech, which most in the class did.

Since we are studying law most of my classmates chose as their role models, people who are known in the legal profession. I actually expected it, so since I am a non-conformist, I decided to choose someone who I've been looking up to since I was a child. Well, if only I just have the guts to see my professor flabbergasted then I'll give a speech on Kurt Cobain, who by the way is my real hero.

The speech was more than a requirement for me to pass the subject, it likewise serves as a tribute to my idol and hero, who if he were alive would have celebrated his 70th birthday.

Here's my speech:

Music is my life. Whether or not I am heartbroken or I got a failing grade in school, music is my refuge, well aside from beer. It relaxes me during those times that I am stressed with all the hurdles a law student has to undertake just to pass his subjects. I believe that almost all if not, most of us have musical influences, not just because they write good songs, but because they impart something in their works that inspires us

For me, it’s the man from Liverpool, John Lennon. Even if I was born after his death, I still consider him as my role model. Personally, I know I would have been shattered and would have been hurt to the core, if I were alive at that time when Lennon was shot to death.

No one could contradict the far-reaching impact on popular music culture of John Lennon. Even most Filipino Bands out there could tell that they have been influenced by the music of John Lennon.

I couldn’t think of anyone at least in the history of music who stood up for his beliefs and ideals like John Lennon. He has always been an epitome of doing what he know is right and not trying to be someone else just to be liked by everyone.

He was not afraid to speak out against what he thought was wrong, and also what he thought was an injustice. He willingly took the consequences for his actions, but he was also determined that no one would change his word without a fight.

His thoughts, ideas, and actions may have offended a lot of people, but I think, he was just a person with amazing pride. He didn't care what anyone thought of him and stood up for what was right. And I think everyone should take a piece of his philosophy and live, learn and love.

In one of his interviews, he said:

“Part of me would like to be accepted by all facets of society and not be this loudmouthed lunatic musician. But I cannot be what I am not.- John Lennon

I admire people who do not have to be like everyone else just to gain the attention ofeveryone. I admire John Lennon for standing up for what he believes in and being the person he really is without having to pretend.

His message has always been about peace and love and that we should live the best we can.

John Lennon is best known for his music and his idealistic view of humanity. He believed people could find peace, and could celebrate life with music, harmony, and decency. Lennon's iconic songs came to inspire and symbolize the ideals of the masses. His music spoke to for and about humanity, and this is a gift, which not all artists have.

He dreamt of stopping war and uniting people regardless of religious or cultural differences. He along with his wife Yoko Ono became part of the Peace and Anti-War Movement during his time. He and fellow Beatles members even went on trips to talk about world issues.

A line from the song “IMAGINE”, which one journalist said, would squeeze a tear out of the most cynical among us, goes:

“Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one.”
~John Lennon

The Beatles. It all started with a dream.

The Beatles, started with a dream. A dream of a young boy who just wanted to play his guitar, sing, entertain, and make known to the world his wisdom through his music. It was formed by John Lennon, with his friend Paul McCartney.

The Beatles debuted in 1962 and within a couple of years, became the biggest cultural event in the world. They represented the change in society and became the new visionary of rock and roll.

Lennon’s success as an artist was all because of his hardwork, enthusiasm and a huge amount of positivity. John Lennon was also a person who liked to push himself, and others to the limit. These attributes inspired me to do best in whatever endeavor I put myself into, especially right now that I am taking up law.

In one of Lennon’s interviews, he said:

“You make your own dream. That's the Beatles' story, isn't it? Produce your own dream. It's quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders and the parking meters. Don't expect Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan or John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and do it for you. You have to do it yourself. There's nothing new under the sun. All the roads lead to Rome. And people cannot provide it for you. I can't wake you up. You can wake you up. I can't cure you. You can cure you.”

"It's fear of the unknown. The unknown is what it is. And to be frightened of it is what sends everybody scurrying around chasing dreams, illusions, wars, peace, love, hate, all that... it's all illusion. Unknown is what it is. Accept that it's unknown and it's plain sailing. Everything is unknown... then you're ahead of the game.”

John Lennon has touched the world through his music beyond all else. He just didn’t give the world so much music and influence, he gave up his freedom and ultimately his life.

No one knows what else John Lennon would have contributed in this world if his life was not short-lived. But one thing I know for sure is that any man that has a gift like that of Lennon could only do good in this society of ours if he had only been given the chance. For this, John Lennon will live on in my mind not only as a role model but as a true working class hero.

(9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980)

I miss the sound of your voice
And I miss the rush of your skin
And I miss the still of the silence
As you breathe out and I breathe in

If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what's next
I'd make you believe
I'd make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the sound of your voice
Loudest thing in my head
And I ache to remember
All the violent, sweet
Perfect words that you said

If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what's next
I'd make you believe
I'd make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the pull of your heart
I taste the sparks on your tongue
I see angels and devils
And God, when you come on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Sing sha la la la
Sing sha la la la la

Ooo Ooo Ooo...
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me, drown me in love

It's all wrong, it's all wrong
It's all wrong, it's so right
So come on, get higher
So come on and get higher
'Cause everything works, love
Everything works in your arms.

Suddenly You're mine..


I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didnt believe in destiny
I look up you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine

I never saw it happening
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn't have the strength to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a mystery
But give me your hand and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

I got a feeling in my soul ..

People say that Im a fool
Well I dont know
At least I found out
What it takes to be strong
I was dreaming all day long
A drifting cloud
With eyes wide open
I would choose not to see

Now I don?t want To see you any more Don?t want to be the one To play your game Not even if you smile Your sweetest smile Not even if you beg me Darling please.

Say good morning to the world
I hope you like it
Take good care of all those
Things that we had
Ive been looking for a way
For too long now

Seems like everything
Must come to an end.

Repeat Chorus
Time after time
Nothing that I can do
Knowing your ways and loving your ways
But not getting through at all
Day after day
Leaving the past behind
Coming to terms with stitches and burns and learning to fly again

Here's a nice cover by Kris Moyse of Craig David's "DON'T LOVE YOU NO MORE (I'M SORRY)"

For all the years that I've known you baby
I can't figure out the reason why lately you've been acting so cold
(didn't you say)
If there's a problem we should work it out
So why you giving me the cold shoulder now
Like you don't even wanna talk to me girl
(tell me)
OK I know I was late again
I made you mad and dinners thrown in (the bin)
But why are you making this thing drag on so long
(I wanna know)
I'm sick and tired of this silly game
(silly games)
Don't think that I'm the only one here to blame
It's not me here who's been going round slamming doors
That's when you turned and said to me
I don't care babe who's right or wrong
I just don't love you no more.

Rain outside my window pouring down
What now, your gone, my fault, I'm sorry
Feeling like a fool cause I let you down
Now it's, too late, to turn it around
I'm sorry for the tears I made you cry
I guess this time it really is goodbye
You made it clear when you said
I just don't love you no more

I know that I made a few mistakes
But never thought that things would turn out this way
Cause I'm missing something now that your gone
(I see it all so clearly)
Me at the door with you in a state
(in a state)
Giving my reasons but as you look away
I can see a tear roll down your face
That's when you turned and said to me
I don't care babe who's right or wrong
I just don't love you no more.

Rain outside my window pouring down
What now, your gone, my fault, I'm sorry
Feeling like a fool cause I let you down
Now it's, too late, to turn it around
I'm sorry for the tears I made you cry
I guess this time it really is goodbye
You made it clear when you said
I just don't love you no more

Those simple words hit so hard
They turned my whole world upside down
Girl, you caught me completely off guard
On that night you said to me
I just don't love you no more

Rain outside my window pouring down
What now, your gone, my fault, I'm sorry
Feeling like a fool cause I let you down
Now it's, too late, to turn it around
I'm sorry for the tears I made you cry
I guess this time it really is goodbye
You made it clear when you said
I just don't love you no more

A little update for you guys..

I'm a little satisfied with what's going on in my life, though it's too early to say that 2010 is my year! But like a car whose battery went dead, I'm happy I had a good jumpstart!

I've always been patient and positive about finding the job since last year. Without bragging about my credentials, I am a good catch to employers. But the past two months of job hunting proved only one thing. You can't please every employer. Your resume can be impressive and 'good looking' but the employer's needs slash demands really matter. You can't choose. You can't demand.

I was almost hired in the first job I applied to but I had to make some compromises, so I dropped the opportunity. I continued the job hunting but it was not successful. I just shrugged it off. I thought it's almost the holidays so employers are busy with their parties. So I just decided to continue the job hunt the first week of the new year.

The first Monday of the year I decided to send an application thru one of the job ads in a certain site. The job location was convenient for me. It was just a 10-minute drive/commute from my place. Fortunately, I received a text message from the employer requesting me to report the following day. Instincts play an important role in my life. A large percent of my decisions I based on instincts, and deciding to go to the interview proved that my instincts still work!

I get hired the very same day and get to start the following day! I even got my first ever pay check last 15th.

Now, that's not the only thing that makes me happy at the start of the year. When I found out that I passed one of the most dreaded subject in school, I just couldn't be more happy. All that I could just think of is that I'm off to my review subjects next year. Yihee!! So, come June I would really have an indefinite leave at blogging! But for now, I'll try my very best to pay a visit at your blogs and hopefully write something new here.

So much ups and downs in my love life last year. Been loved. Been heart broken. And my love life was still a little shaky come 2010. There are a lot of prospects outthere but as one of U2's song says "I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR".. Maybe it's better to be single right now than to jump into a relationship. But I'm not closing my doors, I just need that spark to lighten up my mood for love! So Auditions are on going!! Haha!!

I guess this is it for now! Have a great weekend guys!
