Atty. Joel Villalon

Congratulations to my dear friend Joel for passing the 2005 Bar Exams.


You made it dearie! Pwede na kameng mang-gantsyo may tagapagligtas na kame!


The ultimatum has been lifted and the current LSS is:

hindi maipinta ang aking nadarama
hindi maalis ang tamis ng mga tinginan
mag aalas-dose na pala
ayoko pang kumawala
sa higpit ng mga yakap mo, giliw ko

kung panaginip lamang ito
ayoko na sanang magising
tila isang paraiso tuwing ika'y kapiling
Sa uulitin mulimakapiling ka sa bawat sandali
hindi maitatanggi langit sayong mga mata at mga labi
sana noon pa naranasan
Hinding-hindi ipagpapalit
kailan man

naubusan na ng mga salitanag-uusap na lang ang mga mata
nakakamangha nagtitrip hanggang umaga
saan man mapunta kuntento nabasta't kasama ka
basta't kasama ka

kung panaginip lamang ito
ayoko na sanang magising
tila isang paraiso tuwing ika'y kapiling..
Sa uulitin muli
makapiling ka sa bawat sandali
hindi maitatanggi langit sayong mga mata at mga labi
sana noon pa naranasan
Hinding-hindi ipagpapalit
kailan man sa uulitin....

I am looking for the following titles (attention Kuya Berns!!!):

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Joanne Greenberg
Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Normal Girl - A Novel by Molly Jong Fast

These are not available at Powerbooks, Fully Booked and National Bookstore.

From The Bell Jar to The Virgins

Done with The Bell Jar and it didn’t help now I am flipping pages of The Virgin Suicides. As I increase my dose more and more with neurosis I can’t help but be immune to psychosis. I don’t know what's going on, must be the over analytical mind of moi. But as my sis Jen said, nothing to worry about yet – no need to panic kase di ko pa naman sya inaaway. So in conclusion I am still sane.

Something to Sigh About

Hay naku, just when the end is near things are getting a little nicer. Nakakainis!

The Bell Jar

by Sylvia Plath

Perfect with Prozac Nation (the movie)
I am so affected and moved by this book. And now I am wondering, am I neurotic?

I am Iam Iam (heart thumps), sigh... I think I need electric shocks to wake me up. What can you say Luch?

A few more pages & I'm done, this is a good book. Here's the synopsis:

"Esther, an A-student from Boston who has won a guest editorship on a national magazine, finds a bewildering new world at her feet. Her New York life is crowded with possibilities, so that the choice of future is overwhelming, but she can no longer retreat into the safety of her past. Deciding she wants to be a writer above all else, Esther is also struggling with the perennial problems of morality, behaviour and identity. In this compelling autobiographical novel, a milestone in contemporary literature, Sylvia Plath chronicles her teenage years - her disappointments, anger, depression and eventual breakdown and treatment - with stunning wit and devastating honesty."

Sylvia Plath commited suicide after this book was published.

Plea of Insanity

It is always best to regret the things you did than regret the things you didn’t do.

Killer line huh? One of these days I’m gonna do something crazy then grow old and to this thing I did – I’ll just laugh at it. For sure it could cause me pain, miseries & depression but if I play my cards right all of those could turn into happiness or even bliss. Talking to my bestfriend Luchie always makes me sane – she’s the most sensible person I have ever known (can turn crazy ideas into brilliant ones – can justify it as well) and I am thankful because I have her. We were talking about the things that we would like to do – travel, go back to school and do something out of the ordinary – something that is outrageously crazy.

I made a list of the things that I can consider worth trying, crazy things that can make or break me as a person:

Never report to work ever again (disappear without a clue)
I consider this crazy, disappearing without any trace from work, hehehe I love the idea of people I work with and my friends wondering if I was kidnapped abducted or killed. Ha! I am so evil & crazy, but I realized I am not too crazy to do this – yet. Where would I go? For sure this would mean isolation even from my family. Plus I got to earn to live hehehe and if it’s any consolation I don’t hate my job that much – there are good and bad days to it who doesn’t right?

Pack my bags and go back-packing to Cambodia and Nepal
I will plan this thing in a good way – no running away style or missing “drama”. I will file a leave of absence from work (an indefinite one – claim I have personal problems that needs to be solved ASAP) bring all the money I have and fly to Cambodia, live with my bestfriend for a while then make my way up towards Nepal, be a monk for sometime (shave my head and clad myself in rags) and for the finale wait for the Philippine Expedition team that will climb Mt. Everest in ’07.

Be a party girl
I know this is not too crazy but for me it is and it will. It will include heavy drinking and smoking – soooo not me so I guess this is crazy. In the process the goal is to deteriorate my ailing health and die of lung cancer or any liver disease.

Get Married
I know it’s crazy cos I don’t have anybody to marry hehehe. But things like this can be arranged believe me ;-)

Work in a non-English speaking country
And be lost in translation. In this process I will learn to draw, my means of communication with the locals will be through figures and caricatures.

Pursue my dream of becoming a barista
I will resign from my job (yes my glamorous and high paying errrr ehem job, I am so good at lying) apply at Starbucks and be their employee of the month – months after months after months. A friend told me that I only want to have this job cos I want free coffee every minute but I said no, I really want to become a barista then eventually learn the art of bartending too then I’ll join competitions hehehe here & abroad (just like the contest they have at Fridays) oh di ba crazy? I even think I’ll win hahaha!

Tell Ben I Love Him
For now this I think is the craziest (I ran out of crazy things to do). I will tell Ben face to face that I love him and ask him if he feels even a slight feeling of attraction towards me then if he does we’ll be a couple (whether he likes it or not) then I will propose and ask him to marry me. Neat huh?

Waaaah! I am so pathetic, I think I have reached rock bottom. Ben!!!! Help!!! Save me from my destructive imagination!!!

Enjoy the remaining hours of the weekend and happy Monday (tom)… Last week of March, last days for Ben. May we both rest in peace.

Oh well so much for being a Prozac junkie.

Summer Splash

I have been itching to feel the summer since Feb, thank God I have friends who feel the same. So to kick-it-off, we planned an initial summer party, everyone was excited until the last hour – the excitement & summer feeling survived in the hearts of just 4 people. Oh well too bad the others weren’t able to feel the excitement of Splash Island. For people like me who can appreciate little things that would let out the child within, I was really happy with the slides. Here are the pics, hopefully next time the others will go when they promise they would ;)


It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.
