Dapat kasi...

Ang hirap ng healthy lifestyle. Kailangang mag- exercise, motivated, matulog ng sapat na oras, uminom ng vitamins, kumain ng tama at higit sa lahat disiplinado.

Minsan iniisip ko na kailangan ko ng gym buddy, yung spatter ba. Kaso kasama non dapat makipagusap ako sa kanya, kasi alangan naman para kaming mga mime na nag-eexercise sa free weights area. Tsaka di ko makuha bakit kailangan maghawakan ng katawan para itama yung posture o alalayan?

Meron din naman akong kaibigan sa Fitness First pero karamihan eh yung mga nakakasama ko sa GX Class. Sempre dun kanya kanya, kaya gustung-gusto ko kasi walang interaction with the classmates.

Anyway, tuwing nag eexercise ako sa free weights area ayoko talaga ng may interaction, bonding at speaking. Mas gusto ko mag-isip at magpacute sa taong nakikita ko sa salamin.

Gusto ko lang ilabas kasi napapansin ko, nag sasalita na ako mag isa. 

Ikaw? Tuwing nag eexercise ka, gusto mo may kasama o wala?

When knowing becomes boring

An old friend once told me that reading books eliminate the element of surprise of knowing things.

Reading makes one smart by knowing things in advance thru learning via the experiences of others or maybe from a well-known study.

It is sure that with all the self-help books available in the bookstore, one can equip oneself of everything they need to cope up with the harshness that world could bring, e.g. Heartbreak (LoL)

But then again, where's the fun of it when you already know what to do?

You know that touching the fire is painful. It can give you burns, sometimes it can leave a terrible scar.

But have you been burn? Is it enough to know things and not experience it?

Is it enough to give empathy and not sympathy?

When is it enough to know and when is it ok to try?

Double-Edge Question

I spent my last two weeks of December 2011 in the Philippines. My first time after three years of being away from home.

One fine morning as I walked briskly to our dining area to enjoy a homemade breakfast, c/o my Auntie Luz, there I found my mother enjoying her morning chuckling over a lifestyle magazine. I let her be as I was very excited to have breakfast at our home in DasmariƱas, Cavite.

And then, out of no where, my mom, true to form for being unpredictable, asked me a question I didn't imagine she will asked me one day...

Mama: Ton, anak, nakikipagsex ka ba sa Singapore? (Ton, son, are you having sex in Singapore?)

Me: *I crossed my arms and looked at her* Say what?!

Mama: Oo o hindi, virgin ka pa ?(Yes or No, are you still a virgin?)

See kids, this is a double-edge question. If I answer NO, I will be subject of further interrogation which can lead to me being an endless topic of my parents over dinner. If I answer YES, it's as if I'll say to my Mom that his son is a fcuking LOSER. I'll be a laughing stock of my father.

Perpetual Humiliation on my part!

Mortified by the words of my mother, all I can reply to her was...

Me: It's something PRIVATE! *I looked away*

That's when my Auntie blurted out

Auntie: si TonTon may tinatago sa atin *grins*(TonTon is hiding something from us *grins*)

Mama : di nga Ton? Magkwento ka naman ( Really Ton? Come on share your stories)

This is when I transferred seats from our dining room to our living room where I watched TV while eating (in which by the way, I'm not fond of) just to avoid the two women who can shake me to my very core, without even trying.

But after realizing what had happened, I know that my heart was home again.

The night of April 26, I received a news from my sister. A kind of news I never expected I'll come across with.

Mama and Papa were in a vehicular accident in Ternate, Cavite along the Kamatayan Bridge(press here to know the translation). The jeep that my father was driving suddenly lose the breaks and rolled over three times, missing a two or three meters away from falling down the cliff. 

They're ok now, although they suffered minor injuries, they are still as sharp as a tack. 

And after what had happened, I'm thank the Lord for keeping them safe and saving them from death.

Moreover, I am happy that when I come home this 17, I will still have that kind conversation with my parents.

I still have them in my life. I can still share everything to them. I still have a chance to make them happier.

I love you Ma and Pa.

Why 'Everything is going to be Okay' is a bad advice.

One fine afternoon, I had a chat with my good friend about her worries in the coming months, such as her status in her new life in Australia, her relationship status with her Aussie boyfriend, her career in her company, and many other to name a few.

At first I was blissfully unaware of her worries but as she stated one by one her problems that is coming her way, it made clear to me that uncertainty of her future is brewing in the horizon. In a nutshell, to her it'll be either success or fail, happiness or sadness, stone or no stone, 1 or 0, to gain all or to lose all.

Overwhelmed with her problems and pressured from the support responsibilities of my job, all I could reply to her was a straight-forward cliche of "you shouldn't worry, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY."




Is it??????

The moment it left me, it echoed in my mind how a failure of a friend I am to her when I blurted that out. That all I could say to her is an assurance, based on nothing, that everything will be fine. In which, by all honesty, I don't know how it will turn out to be okay. It's as if I just told her that just to shut her up, which is not my intention. What my intention is to make her feel secured no matter what happens in the end. I guess, I chose the wrong words.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY... Is such a detached phrase. It's like saying, shut up and stop worrying about some trivial matters. It's like blocking her up and leaving her alone to deal with her problems.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY... doesn't show sympathy or care towards my friend who probably is being mentally tortured by the negative thoughts in her mind, whether or not it is self-induced.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY... will not make everything ok, neither it will magically solve her problems.

So Mamang (our nickname/pet name to her), I may not have the answer to your problems and I may not give the most sensible advice to quench all your worries, but sweetie, let me take back my words and say this. I don't know what will happen, whether life will favor you or screw you, I will be standing or sitting beside you, drinking away your happiness or sadness like we always do.

I promise you, no matter what happens, I WILL BE HERE...
