It’s been 10 years… and like what I’ve been doing for the past years, I visited your grave.

While I’m there, I can’t help but reminisce on our last night together… That Christmas 10 years ago.

I can still remember how you looked.  Your smile… It was my last memory of you.  And I can’t help but remember how you would paint the sky and teach me all about the stars.  You’ve taught me to wish on a crescent moon…  You’ve shown me how I can touch the clouds.

It’s been 10 years.  I have not forgotten… Your mom told me to move on.  But I can’t.  You’re still my only knight and king.

My College

It’s been more than 5 years since I graduated from college.  As far as I can remember, I last went there summer after graduation to get a copy of my transcript and enroll my sister.

These past 2 days, I’ve been to familiar roads.  I have to pass by my college to get to Manila.  I’m not fond of riding the MRT and LRT.  For me, they’re more tiring than riding a cab/fx taxi.

While on the road, I get to see a lot of changes that happened to St. Joseph and the neighboring establishments there.  McDonald’s and KFC, where I used to eat with my friends were still there.  But the Kenny Roger’s that was beside McDo was gone.  It was already replaced by a Mercury Drugstore…  Aside from that, the waiting area where my ex-bf’s and my friends used to wait for me was replaced with a cafe.

I haven’t been inside St. Joseph yet.  I dunno if only the outside and it’s immediate vicinity changed.  I’m actually planning a visit, just to see if there’s any change that happened inside – driveway, student’s lounge, courses, etc.

I’m excited to see how time brought many changes to my college, the way time had changed a lot about me and my former classmates…

Yes, nostalgia strikes again.  I’m missing my friends and the way we used to just stay at the lounge and gossip, or do what we are good at – food trip from St. Joseph, all the way to Welcome Rotonda or España… I also miss going to the movies with them.

Long Lost

It felt good to talk with him again.  It’s been months since we last called each other.  I missed my third angel so much.

So, last night, when he called, it was like we’ve never talked for years.  The call lasted until almost 4 am… Hence, I still feel so sleepy..

I’m glad he’ll come visit me again come December.  I can’t wait to see him, his wife and their baby… smile

A Dream

I saw him in my slumber.  I could see his lips move but can’t hear what he’s saying.  He’s trying to tell me something.  Only I couldn’t seem to understand.  I’ve become deaf to his pleas.

When he finished, he turned his back and started to walk away.  I could see myself running after him but the distance’s still the same.  I can’t catch up.  I fainted in the dream.  When I regained consciousness, I saw doors, a lot of them.

I tried to open one.  But I don’t have the key.  I barged on each door.  Had knocked more than once but it still won’t open.  It won’t even budge.  Exhausted and exasperated, I just cried.

I woke up, finding my pillow wet with tears.  There’s only one door.  He’s smiling at me.  He said I’m having nightmares.  He could even hear me whisper his name.  When he asked me, I told him my peculiar dream.

He brushed my hair with his fingers and gave me a soft kiss.  He whispered in my ear, words that I’ve been longing to hear since I woke up…

“Sagapo, Rouie”.

This week is the start of my official non-working week. My resignation was effective July 15 but I had to go back to finish my clearance…

Initially, I planned to go on vacation this week. But last Saturday, I had a changed of heart. Actually, I have beenchanging some of my plans and recently acted impulsively.

This week, I’m busy with my class. The last day of training will be on August 21 and graduation will be on August 25. I’m enjoying the training especially now that we’re mixing spirits, etc.

As of now, I still don’t have any idea where to work or whether I want to be in an office again. All I know for now is that I’m happily threading this new path. I am enjoying myself. smile

Oh, I miss my friends at Maersk… Anyway, I’ll see them when it’s time.. smile

Had a few drinks this afternoon. My classmates from bartending went here so we could practice mixing some drinks in preparation for an upcoming competition.

In less than 5 minutes, my chosen two was able to make 10mixes… I hope they can do that next week.

Even if we don’t win that competition, as long we’re not in last place, is already enough for me.

note:

I just had some Cuba Libre, Vodka Gimlet, Gin Tonic… and then Gran Matador.. lol…

I miss drinking! big grin

The 8th Day

It’s the 8th day of the month.. As usual, my mom asked her aunt to cook some pancit and biko… See, my youngest sister (only 4 y/o) was born on the 8th day of February. Every month, we make it a point to cook something for her… a sort of offering ‘coz if we don’t she gets sick… and each one of us will follow suit.

Since it’s the 8th of the month, I remembered what happened almost 5 years ago. My mom asked me to buy her a pregnancy kit. Imagine my dilemma ‘coz that time, I was acting like a guy. I was like: “There’s no way I’m gonna buy that!”. However, since I’m the eldest, I ended up still buying one for her.

Wearing an oversized shirtm, maong shorts and a baseball cap, I went to this small pharmacy. Inside, I whispered to the pharmacist/sales lady that I’m looking for pregnancy kit. I was so humiliated when she shouted at the her colleague, from the far end of the store, that I was buying a blue pregnancy kit! I hurriedly went home when she gave me one because I could hear some people whispering: “Tingnan mo yun, pa-tomboy tomboy pa kuno, malandi naman pala…”

When I got home, I narrated to my mom everything that happened inside that store. I swear, she was laughing so hard at me… Instead of showing how angry I was because of that incident, I immediately asked her to try the kit and see if she’s really pregnant.

To cut the story short, my mom was 2 months pregnant that time. So I was always accompanying her to each of her monthly check ups. Aside from that, I was excited to have a baby sister or brother para maging kakampi ko.. *hehe*

8th of February 2005, a few weeks after my work started, my mom gave birth to a healthy baby girl who weighs 8.5lbs… We planned to video the whole giving birth thingy but my dad was against it. The next day, I went to the hospital after work and bought a cake to celebrate with my family. That night, all of us stayed in the hospital, each trying to carry the baby whenever she’s taken out of the nursery room.

Now, my baby sister is already 4 years old. Stubborn like her older siblings but looks a lot like our dad. Right now, we’re actually calling her JR (short for junior) because one of her name is the feminine form of my dad’s name.. *hehe*
