Dear buffallos,

No other thing to say but I miss you.

It's one of those times when everything's fine and I'm really happy. You would have been the most eager recipients of my numerous phone calls. And you would have been even more excited about things than I already was.

Sometimes I wonder what the point of doing things for you means, when I can not actually see you witnessing them. I'm quite hopeful there is a point. I often ask God to tell you my thoughts as though He were my personal messenger.

I dream about the day I will get to hug you again. I dream that someday, I'll again feel the warmth and security of your embraces. And I will hold on to you so tight and long.

My Presidential Bet

I'm really excited to vote on May 10. Despite the personal nightmare that the past election season was, i'm still seeing the possibility of this country's transformation.

After much thinking, surfing, watching and reading, i have finally decided on who to vote for President.

Gordon's history shows that he was a remarkable executive. We know about Subic's transformation, WOW Philippines' popularity and his stint at the Philippine Red Cross. He was also an active legislator. Notably, he was instrumental in this year's first ever fully automated elections, which at least minimizes the possibility of cheating. I see him as a passionate person. His one passion is to cheer his guts out in Ateneo basketball games and is very consistent at it. His motto is good governance.

But what i actually like about this man is his leadership. A good leader is someone who can get people to act, someone who can invite people to unite for a purpose and someone who can inspire us to at least care. Volunteerism. And this, i think, is what Filipinos need. It's the only way to get us out of this rut.

Open My Eyes

Isn't this a beautiful beautiful song?


Saviour of my soul
I worship You as God alone
Greater love has made a way to You

I could not forget
The moment I in faith confessed
For my sin You died and rose again

I believe every word You say
Father God with all my heart I sing

Open my eyes
I want to see Your glory Your glory Lord
I open my heart
I want to be closer closer to You

Here I am again
I find my strength in drawing near
You have heard the desperate cry in me

And as I wait on You my God
I’ll know the voice of truth
In quietness I am in awe
And as I worship You my Lord
I understand the cross
The sacrifice of God

Kopi ko

I started drinking coffee when i was in College, and only due to dire situations. For instance, we had group projects in which we needed to stay up all night. Thus, i needed the dizzying kick of Starbucks coffee (the cold ones). Of course, these situations didn't happen everyday. I slept at least eight hours on normal days.

Then, i got to enter another school and there, i developed my love affair with coffee. Before that time, i just thought that coffee was not good for my health.

But then, I came to love the taste of freshly brewed (hot) coffee (especially Coffee Bean's). However, i couldn't afford to buy from a coffee shop daily, thus, i had to content myself with instant coffee.

In my four years, i never developed the talent to mix my own cup! I had to drink the 3-in-1 type every single time. I've tasted every brand from SM Supermarket and Rustan's and I've never been satisfied with any. Maybe, a certain brand would suit me for a month or so but thereafter, i'd just get tired of the too sweet taste.

On my 29th year on earth, i have come to a point where i can prepare my own cup of instant coffee. Yey me. But not so much - because i cant be satisfied by nothing but the brewed type now too.

Last December, I (we) got not one, not two, not three but four coffee makers. How cool is that. ;) And now i can brew to my desired taste perfectly.

And now, I'm dreaming to put up my own coffee shop somewhere in Session Road. Prayer point n.

The Prayer of Jabez

"Oh, that you would bless me

and enlarge my territory!
Let your hand be with me,
and keep me from harm
so that I will be free from pain."

And God granted his request.

I love the mountains

I love the clear blue sky
I love big bridges
I love when great whites fly
I love the whole world and all it's sights and sounds

I love the ocean
I love real dirty things
I love to go fast
I love Egyptian kings
I love the whole world
and all it's craziness

I love tornadoes
I love arachnids
I love hot magma
I love the giant squids
I love the whole worldIts such a brilliant place
