Weekend came in just a snap. I went to see movie and had coffee with friends. Just the usual routine of my weekends.

But this is different. Something is amiss. Something is void and should fill a presence.

Probably, I just need a company of someone special to give me solacement and pull me out from this insanity before i get bare.

a time to give back (UPDATE!)

Related post: A Time to Give Back Project

Hey guys!

Thanks for your support! I already received some pledges for the realization of this project though we still need to raise more funds – that's around P11000 to feed the 124 kids.

Just to give you an update as well, we were able to contact the mayor of Adams and he will be providing us the transportation from Laoag to their town and also to Pagudpud! I was able to talk as well with the coordinator from Jollibee Laoag and they will give us discounts for the feeding program. J

Anyway, we are still open to those who want to share their blessings this coming season. Deadline will be on December 15, 2010. This will be fun, guys. J

Donations in kind are also welcome. Please just email me at for more info.

It was already around 8ish when I arrived home. My usual buddies welcomed me, jumping and messing up the clothes I'm wearing. I'm wondering why they are only 3 - Tiger, Cocoy, and Ratzky. Tosky is missing.

"Nasan si Tosky?", I asked my mom.

"He's been missing for a 2 weeks already. We tried to find him but he's nowhere to be found.", she sighed.

I can still remember when I went home for the semestral break. I was still college freshman then. Although it's our first time to meet, he's been jumping on my luggage with his soiled feet. I was also frustrated for playing with my slippers, leaving it torn.

He's been with us for around 8 years. For those long years, he usually lie down beside me so I can scratch his belly when I'm home. He used to wake me up every morning – he goes to my room and licks my toes.

Earlier today, I was scanning the pictures on my old computer. I chanced upon his picture I took 5 years ago.

We are not sure if he's still alive or not. But I am hoping wherever he is, May God be with him.

I can't sleep.

I keep on tossing myself on the bed for hours already.

Something is unfamiliar since I came here, something is amiss.

I feel like I am a stranger in my own room.

Our house is very silent.

Probably because it is almost empty. Only mom is here. Dad is assigned in Baguio.

I just can't help but feel this depression tonight.

Maybe I just miss the city. I miss the crowd.

Or I'm just missing somebody.

a time to give back project

Hi guys! Christmas is yet again coming so fast and probably some of you are already saving for your Noche Buena.

But hey, I am thinking of this nice…err… great idea which was suggested by my tito when I went home a couple of months ago! He wanted to celebrate his birthday by giving some Jollibee kids meal to some indigents of this small and neglected town of Adams in Ilocos Norte (I know some of you already know that I'm an Ilocano). However, due to time and budget constraints, his plan wasn't pushed through.

Just to give you a background, I visited once this town wherein I saw how simple yet hard their life is. Most of them farm to earn for a living. I am not surprised to learn that these kids only know Jollibee from the television but never even tasted a single piece of chickenjoy.

This year, I want to start something not only for myself but also for these kids who are somewhat deprived. I was thinking of instead spending my earnings with partying or for leisure, I will just put them into this project. Thus, I plan to have something like feeding program, something like "A Time to Give Back" project. I am only thinking now of a big budget for this event. I want this plan to materialize and I want to let kids show that they are not deprived. I can already imagine the smiles of these kids on that date of the event.
With this, I am thinking if I could pull some help from you guys for this project. I know some of you are striving hard to earn but a small amount will give these kids a memorable day they won't probably forget. I would be gladly and very thankful for any donations or monetary amount to be pledged.

For more information or for pledges, please contact us at via email at or (Amae, my co-organizer).

We will be accepting pledges until the 18th of December. To those who want to stay anonymous, you can deposit on my bank account which is dedicated for this project:

Thanks guys in advance. J

PS: I am inviting you as well if you want to join us on that date. You can stay in our house basta sa inyo ang pamasahe. Hehehe. Peace! J

on which heartbreak is harder to move on?
a relationship that only lasted for a while?
or a relationship that took more than a year?

i heard lots of stories already and even from my past experience that relationships who lasted only a few weeks or months are harder to move on. is this because we have more why's and what if's?

how about you? how long did it take for you to heal?

to a new friend who is still in the process of healing after a failed relationship a couple of years ago, i hope that you will be healed soon. :)
