For someone who’s a huge fan of Crime shows like Criminal Minds, Law and Order, this play is close to my heart.

The leads’ story were connected in such a way that one’s success is connected to the other.  Although the plot itself reminded me of a Criminal Minds episode, the whole execution of the play – comedic at most points, deserved all the applause it received.

Audie Gemora and Joel Trinidad are really good.  Their solos, their duets ought to be listened to, over and over… 🙂  Plus the acting, the portrayal of an actor haunted by his mother’s success on stage, and a detective who can’t seem to get out of his brother’s shadow, all made me feel like I am an intruder, watching a part of their lives open before my eyes…

Also worth mentioning is Pinky Marquez’s playing multiple characters… And Carla Guevara-Laforteza’s portrayal of a rich woman falling for a detective brought kilig moments.  The mom, played by Sheila Francisco brought laughter from the audience.

It was the first Repertory Philippines play that I’ve seen… And now, I’m excited to watch some more.

Tarot Reading

I’m currently undergoing a dark phase… It’s something triggered by frustration, fueled by seeing a ghost from the past.

During these times, I can’t trust myself: instincts, and decisions.  I’m a mess… and to at least give myself the illusion that I’m gonna be okay, I had a tarot reading.

I’m gonna share the results here.

Card 1 (The Star) : How you feel about yourself now »

You feel there is hope, or if you don’t, have faith – a tranquil period is imminent. If you have been ill, suffered bereavement or disappointment in love, take heart, good fortune is on its way. New horizons are indicated and you will feel a new zest for life. This is your wish card – if considering a new love affair, new job or career, or travel, then go for it. You may also receive a gift or gifts!

Card 2 (The Tower) : What you most want at this moment »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is an easy solution to a problem. However in life, turmoil and upheaval often brings about change – just not quite as we would like it. Seize this opportunity of change as a chance for a new beginning. You may want to move home but will be experiencing setbacks.

Card 3 (The Emperor) : Your fears »

You are feeling that success is just around the corner but it feels elusive, just out of reach. You are concerned that the support and help that you want from your father, husband/partner or a man of significance in your life won’t materialise. Trust and ask for the help you need, and success will be yours.

Card 4 (The Devil) : What is going for you »

There’s a possibility of permanence here. If you’re considering a commitment in a relationship or marriage this is a good sign. However question your motives because here we have temptation and addiction, and a desire to be controlled or controlling. So use your intuition and if you recognise what you feel as sincere, great, if not you still have a chance to change direction. If considering giving up a bad habit, such as smoking or drinking for example, now is a good time to start.

Card 5 (The Hierophant) : What is going against you »

You are simply struggling to conform to others expectations of you and everybody has an opinion of what you should do. Perhaps you are having a crisis of faith and are unsettled at a very spiritual level. Ask yourself who you really are? What is important to you? What makes you happy? Seek out advice or wise counsel if you wish, but accepting who you really are and going after what you want instead of what others want for you is the most important.

Card 6 (The Lovers) : Outcome »

Love is coming into your life even if you really can’t see where from at this time. If you are on your own a new lover will soon enter your life. If you are in an unhappy relationship you have a choice to make – go with your heart, take the risk, greater happiness is ahead of you.

Save Me From Me

I’ve been preoccupied… at lost… and afraid. I’m slowly going back to my old self.

I like who I am right now. I enjoy being a pleasure-seeker. It allowed me to be more than what I could be… But then…

My old self is slowly resurfacing. I’m having dark thoughts that prompts me to retrace my step. To turn back into who I was: melancholic, angry at the world, and worst… Suicidal.

Is there a way to help save me from myself?

Random Thoughts

* Karma has an interesting way of teaching us a lesson.  It allows us to be in a negative situation to realize the wrong we’ve done.  And if we’re stubborn to learn the lesson, we’ll find ourselves in the same situation again…

* Sometimes, a WAKE-UP call is all we need in order to realize that we are threading dangerous/negative circumstances.

* The strength of friendship isn’t about how long you’ve been friends or whether or not you know each other’s secrets.  A real friend may be hundreds/thousands of miles away, or you may not see each other often/regularly, but when you’re feeling really low, just the sound of their voice is enough to lift your spirits.

* Lifelong dream changes… It’s influenced by where we are at the moment we realized what that dream is.

I’m Bored!

I know it’s Lent… and based from my Catholic upbringing, I should be spending this time to reflect, pray and be more closer to God.  But I’ve been through some awful things in the past that made me question my religion.  Don’t get me wrong.  I still have my faith… I still believe in a Supreme Being that is not necessarily God.

Well, enough of that.  This blog isn’t supposed to be about my faith.  I just want to blabber about how bored I was this week.  I have been sick – cough and colds… add headache and sinusitis that lasted a few days this week.  I have nothing to do.  And there isn’t any good shows to watch.

Regular programming is hampered to give way to Lenten presentations.  Good thing there’s cable, but during morning til afternoon, most of the shows are reruns of previous episodes or old seasons.  And personally, I’m not into movies.  So, watching DVDs is definitely out of the picture.

Because of all these, I have not spent this whole week productively.  Can’t find any inspiration or idea to pursue.  Can’t even write something good to post a new blog, except this blabber.

Hopefully, once I start with my new work, I would have my hands full of things to do.  Until then, I’d sulk in my table, with pen and paper… and contemplate on my boring day… much like what this image portrays:

* Smile a lot. Always keep that positive outlook, it will help attract good karma.

* Maturity doesn’t come with age. You can be in your 30’s but still think like a child.

* Our action mirrors what we’re thinking.  We only execute what we’ve decided to do.

* Mistakes help us become better individuals, provided we learn from them.  If we’ve missed on the same scenario, that means we haven’t learned the lesson yet.  We won’t have a different outcome if we keep on having the same solutions.

* Trust can be given and broken easily.  It’s as beautiful and as fragile as a crystal.

I must admit, being patient is something I’m definitely not good at.  There are even certain situations or scenarios where I’d lose it easily and explode on whoever I’m talking with.

Like, I don’t have the patience to explain everything over and over again.  I just hate it when someone would ask me the same questions more than twice.  It’s like that person is mocking me.  And I despise that feeling.

I know it’s wrong.  I know I should be more patient.  But then, it’s really unnerving to have yourself repeat what you just said.  If that’s the case, I would have gotten a recorder, and had my answer taped.  Right?

*Sigh* Of course, this losing patience thingy isn’t applicable when I’m with my baby sister.  Well, kids have the tendency to do that.  And one has to have tons of patience when dealing with a kid.  But if you’re an adult, who’s got no problem with comprehension, I don’t think it’s necessary to repeat myself.

Else, want me to give you a hearing aid?
