EMO and UNFAIR!

I always wonder how I would look like if I become one of those “emo” guys on the street. Long sided hair, dark-lined eyes, lipsticks? (black?) How about wearing those hood jackets with stripes all over? Or perhaps wearing those tight levi’s jeans and chuck taylor boots? (I’m wondering If I look good on that though…)

A lot has been going on that You can’t expect me to become too emotional – to the extent of looking like one!

But honestly speaking, I hate people who are careless of other people’s feeling. If I could sum up everything that happened this past few days, it’s this – UNFAIR.

UNFAIR because People speaks first, BEFORE THINKING it through.

UNFAIR because PEOPLE HATES YOU for being HONEST.

UNFAIR because THEY DON’T WANT YOU to be FRIENDS.

UNFAIR because YOU CAN’T GET WHAT YOU WANT.

UNFAIR because LIFE IS NOT FAIR!

Can life be really unfair? Or is it just how we perceive things that makes it look unfair?

In all of these, I believe LIFE is unfair, not by CHANCE but by how You and me makes choices that either breaks or makes another person’s life miserable. I’m thinking that being UNFAIR is a man-made choice wherein all of us, in all walks of life chooses to do something not for others, but for what we think is fair for us regardless of what the OUTCOME may be.

But the question really is, in all of the unfairness in life, how do we make life fair not just for us, but for everyone else out there, who thinks the same? Life indeed is a mystery, because even us can’t determine such answer.

Fiesta and CopyCats!

It’s Tuesday and I have no work! (hopefully!)

It’s fiesta time here in Dumaguete and people are busy buzzing either cooking or looking for a place to be full. And yes folks, good thing for those working in call centers wherein they get to be awake till lunchtime for the “chibugan” sessions somewhere out there. And of course, those who are enjoying the local holiday!

I was wondering what other activities aside from “eating” that can be exciting and interesting during fiesta time…hhhmmm, What else can I do over a day of no work and in a fiesta?

Well, to start off, I decided to wake up early and have some wifi time in McDonald’s, and was a little bit shock seeing a new construction at the side of BPI for a new Jollibee Outlet. Pinoy nga naman….

I am no business tycoon or something but in my opinion, having 3 Jollibee stores in a little city called Dumaguete can be too much. The Jollibee Perdices branch is 5 minutes away from the Cathedral church. And not to mention, it’s just Sundays when this particular area be full with a lot of people. For other days, I’d say less than a handfull will be in this area.

And not to mention, McDonald’s is also nearby wherein the market can be divided, not to mention a local resto – HiWay 10 is on the next block. Whew. ( I promise to take a pic on these 3 later on today,hopefully…)

On another note, Filipinos has this tendency to compete (whether upfront or other way), that makes me wonder where they got it? I often wonder why in one block, there are 6 sari-sari stores, in one street, 3 barber shops and 2 beauty salons and of course, wherein 5 “carinderias” are lined-up somewhere in between.

As a Filipino, it makes me ashame to say that “a lot are copycats…” and the uniqueness of the Filipino spirit is deprived from our need rather than being a trend setter. And I finally realized what the owner of the email from PinoyGuyGuide when he commented on our way of copying things. Grrr… Too bad!

Just another early melancholy…hehehehe.

Acquaintance and Frienship?

It’s another late night post after a day with so many things to do yet only a few things has beenasid and done. ( What’s that again?)

Anyway, Can anything be excited than meeting new people especially if you’re not in a hurry? To many of us, what makes acquaintances are people with no time to take a sip and talk awhile (one moment…one Nescafe!) and get to learn more about other people – whether it’s the mundane stories of someone to a passionate desire for another. Couple it up with an attentive ear and you’ll have a new friend in no time.

In a deeper sense though, acquaintance is always the first step to befriend someone (and maybe more…) but how do we determine those who are good from the bad? from the interesting to the mundane? And who would forget, from the way they look and dress to you know what I mean… ( Sorry!!!)

Let’s say in all of these, the common ground for any friendship will be the “sense to belong” attitude of the group. I’m blessed to say that I have officemates who are definitely for the GO when it comes to talk and discuss about life, leisure, love and anything else that revolves around each and everyone of us.

Just This Saturday

My entire Saturday seems to be mundane as usual. Just to make something out of my boredom, I tried taking pictures in the downtown area, discretely as possible. Imagine myself stopping in front of Ever Mall just to get a shot of the people walking around or leaping at the glass window up in Super Lee to get a shot downward. Hehehe…

At EverMall, It was fast so it seems too blurry.

At Lee Super Plaza FoodCourt

I ate up the whole ice cream choco sundae

A view of Mart One from the Top ( Lee)

Taken infront of the office at exactly 11:40 something in the morning, Sat. Nov. 22,2008

Anyway, just sharing with you some amateur pics taken by me earlier…Would it be fine to say here that someone invited me supposedly to join a pictorial session for a fashion show at the Negros Convention Center but I declined? Uhm, Don’t really have the guts to go pro for now…especially, “pro bono” hehehe…

Happy Saturday Weeknight Everyone!!!

If you’re on the same dilemma as we are, then cheer up – There’s hope!

There are other bloggers who are into this too!

The goal of the community is to gather a good number of bloggers in the area where we can communicate, share posts and learn about tips and tricks in hitting it big in the world of blogging.
(and of course, among other things…)
