Dying Before Your Death (Part 1)

Ever heard of someone saying “This thing happen and I just died”?  The thing is, you see, the process of dying while you’re still alive and healthy doesn’t come in an instant. It doesn’t happen as fast as a snap of your fingers.  It is a collection of small seemingly insignificant instances that builds up through days, weeks, months and…

Pregnancy Scare After Tubal Ligation

First of all, I know this will sound really really crazy. I was ligated right after my last caesarean operation last May of 2016 so pretty much I already have a very very slim possibility of getting pregnant again. I am exclusively breastfeeding our youngest since birth so I had my period back when he was around 10 or 11…

Mercury Drug’s Suki Day Book 2018

Most people are already planning what planner to for next year. Some coffee drinkers would be collecting stickers from their beloved coffee shops, some are loyal to their usual brands and some get the cheapest but functional. I’m not a planner kind of person. I love how fancy those planners are and it looks kikay too but I’m not gonna…

Balisong

Ilang taon na nga ba? Halos labingwalong taon na din pala mula nang una kong mapansin yung weirdo mong mukha. Sa fourth row ako nakaupo noon, sa tabi ng pader. Ikaw naman nasa second or thrid row sa kabilang side ng kwarto. Pareho tayong transferee na first year high school students noon. Ang puti at ang gwapo mo, matangkad ka…

Ikaw

Ikaw ang nagbigay ng mga bagay na ‘di ko hingi Ikaw ang nagparamdam ng mga damdaming ayaw kong pansinin Ikaw ang unang nagsabi ng mga salitang ayaw kong marinig at ayaw kong sabihin Ngunit sa kabila ng lahat, ikaw pa rin ang aking lakas Ikaw pa rin ang dahilan kung bakit ako makapangyarihan.   [In response to Daily Prompt :…

Dark Sides and Rants

If there’s one thing that I’m proud of, it’s the fact that I don’t cry in wakes or in funerals. Nope, not even during my grandparents’ wake, or when we received the news that they’re already peace. Why? Because at the back of my mind, I know that someday, we’ll meet again in a different place and time. Today, it’s the…

Letters For You

Hey Michael,

We started our relationship with something like a trial period. If we last for six months, we’ll extend (renew) it to another six months (contractual jobs, endo anyone?). I don’t know if you already knew it when we first met but one thing’s for sure, you thought I’m so attracted to you that I’d try to put you under a…

Classic Polvoron

December 2016, I landed a one-time freelance job wherein I earned Php 10,500 ($207.70) in just four days. I am not joking (but I can’t tell any info about the job). Since I know that that kind of opportunity may not happen again, I decided to buy stuff that I can use to start a small business with small capital.…
