Rocky Weeks...

Rocky weeks... Right now, Mayumi is sitting on my lap. His name is feminine, even though he is a tom cat, because some people thought he was female when he was a kitten. Not sure how it happened when it is obvious from the very beginning that he is, indeed, a male cat. Merrymall is not feeling well. Not sure. She has been eating small amounts... and she just gave birth to some kittens, I believe. Need to find a box later to secure her and her kittens. My mother is brushing her teeth. She ha...

Pulot died...

Our cat (more like, my cat, as I am the only one feeding the pets) died yesterday. Got run over by a jeep. No wonder it felt weird to hear my cousin saying she fed the pets when I arrived because she would never do that. It would always be my burden to feed them all. Good I am not crying physically but, deep inside, I really wish to cry. That jeepney driver got away scot-free. Very similar with Bebe Alfred Jr. I left the house at 4:00pm or before that. He was still alive. He must have follo...

Sunday...

My most favorite day. It can only take me 1 hour to get from Alabang to Makati, all the way from Katarungan Village, using even the long, long way, not the short way. Long way, meaning, passing through the market area, the town, etc. That is the long way. 1 hour. Admirable. All so fast because there is no traffic jam on Sundays, everybody is at home. Same thing during Holy Week. No traffic jam at all. All are on vacation. It's almost 5:00am, I woke up earlier because... I am a vampire... jus...

Friday evening...

Another Friday evening... Actually, it's Saturday now. Today is The Moffatts concert and I feel like not going because I shall be teaching for the whole day, like, gosh... It'll be until evening, the whole game. 3 pending lessons and 1 concert to go. Will I survive? That's the question. I am concerned because I shall need to get up early for Sunday, too. Gosh, if only I could say to Maricris I would no longer be going, but I can't say that to her. I need a place to sleep, somewhere near Ortig...

There is a new kitten in town...

I strongly believe Filipinos, some Filipinos, should not be allowed to take care of pets. The other day, yesterday (?), I saw a kitten, a very small one, right beside a heap of trash near the jeepney station. I was hoping to walk away because I knew it would be a complete burden for me for a few days or, if the creature survived, some years. However, I could not. I can't save all animals in the world. I wish the Philippine government would include Mistreatment of Animals to the Death Penalty...

Depressing...

After reading this from BBC, it reminds me of myself. http://www.bbc.com/mundo/noticias-38844082 A girl skipping, what, lunches and vacations simply to spend time with the dogs to fully take care of them. For some reason, I said to myself I would not end up like her. She could be a hero, but she could have done more if she were alive. Depressing, really, to read this. She must be a depressed person to think of taking out her life. Very depressed person. Now, my parents are watching Fly Aw...

Wow, racing against time...

Look at that, I can beat the inefficiency of Diary.com by clicking so fast the Add Note button, a ha ha... It disappears... but I can beat it... The other day, I dreamed of a blue sky. Staring directly at it. Looking up in the sky. Blue sky. When I looked up the meaning of such online, the result is this: "A blue sky represent a positive outlook, freedom of expression, independence, and hope. The "sky is the limit." Believing that what you want is possible or that good things about to happe...

Thursday evening...

And it's cold. Earlier, it rained... I was supposed to fly to Tuguegarao but did not push through because I was not financially prepared (actually, I can, but I worry about the dogs). Yes, I worry about Sage, as well. I wonder what's wrong with her? February, fuck the cold, as in. She can't get well if this continues everyday. Always cold, always raining. What happened to the Philippines? To the Philippines' climate? To think people say old foreigners prefer to retire here because it's warm ...

Dayanara Torres...

I saw the Inquirer.net video: http://videos.inquirer.net/?vtnid=ODg0MDczfHwyMzY4fHwwfHx8fHx8 and I must admit, after looking at many beautiful ladies, the only genuinely beautiful is... Dayanara Torres. I guess it's because she lived in the Philippines for quiet some time, there is that feeling of being nostalgic. She had these kenkoy movies... In fact, if ever I saw her, I wish to ask some questions: Bakit hindi kayo nagkatuluyan ni Aga Muhlach? 'Di ba, bumalik ka pa n'un for the second tim...

Feeling tired...

But I can't sleep. I must not sleep, not until I have the one last thing, the most important thing... Been exploring around Quora.com. I also stumbled upon www.answers.com. These websites with simple names, what a waste... Not fully utilized when they could have beaten www.facebook.com... Just like the website www.questions.com, owned by a certain Matt? Mark? There are people searching on Google. However, there are also people who wish to get an answer from real people, not automatic like Goo...

Box.com

Just recently signed up on Box.com, in case I need its space in the future. 10GB (whew! whistle!). Box.com, everyone, Box.com! I like the simplicity of its name. Box.com. Easy to remember. There is another one, Dropbox.com, more famous, I must say, but website name is longer. I used the Individual Free Plan. Poked around. Looks great! Fantastic! Like, you can actually write a tele-book here, simply update it day by day. Like, blogging, perhaps, but this is not a blogging website. It's a fi...

Tengo hambre. Ya no he comido. Estoy hablando español aquí porque me gusta. Escuchaba música o una canción de Enya, "Aniron"? Estoy pensando muchas cosas. Tengo que pensar menos porque será completamente blanco mi pelo. Puedo oír a los pájaros chirriando. Mi segunda hermana me llama para el desayuno. El desayuno a las once y once de la mañana. Hoy nos despertamos muy tarde. Después tengo que estudiar el ruso por dos horas porque no estudié ayer. Tengo planes de vender mis libros de Harry Po...

What a mess...

I like this website. You can write anything without people finding out what you have written, even if they try to Google you up (unless you write your entire name here on Diary.com). However, this website is difficult to use. The "Add Note" disappears every now and then. Now, I'm sleepy. Have fed the pets. Especially Sage, the female dog. She is sick, not sure how to solve it. I am contemplating on not pushing through with the Tuguegarao trip in order to take care of Sage. I can't leave her...

Chopsuey...

Earlier, I ate the best chopsuey. The vegetables seem so... alive! Yes, I ate chopsuey at Classic Savory in Ayala Malls South Park. There weren't that many customers, the reason why the cook could still cook great meals. I ate chopsuey with a cup of rice and buttered chicken. Dogs from another street howling... I feel sleepy but I can't go to sleep. Not yet, not until the dogs are fed. Tomorrow, I'm supposed to go to Manila. For what? For the Tagalog lesson. Fucking cold... Sorry for saying...

The day today...

I always like discussing the weather. Why? Because I can feel that, in the future, it will always be a bad weather. Just like today. Not sunny, so cloudy, so cold. House still under construction. Can hear the birds chirping. I won't hear them chirping when it rains. Reminds me of the electrical lines, where the birds, the maya, sit on. Those electrical lines along Starmall Alabang area. They are so beautiful to watch... Reminds me of Alabang. So beautiful because there is a park, green... I...

Still raining... drizzling...

Construction workers might not come today, their grinder(?) is broken. This means the green room stays unfinished today, house completely disorganized, everything in total disarray. A car has driven away... My grandmother sweeping outside... My mother eating breakfast... Cat Snow Bee must be running around, can hear her bells... Another car somewhere... Another sound, sounds like a grinder(?) from a distance... Reminds me of The Crown last night. Taking a peek at it while my sister was watc...

House...

So many things are running inside my head right now... House is under construction. They are putting new tiles for the floor. No color coordination at all. In the living room, it's red. How come in the bedroom, tiles become green? Who thought of it, my sister? My hands are now getting confused, too, with English keyboard, Spanish keyboard and Cyrillic keyboard for Russian language. Just 5:00pm and it's super dark. I miss the days of good weather. Feels like these past few days have always be...

Classical Music...

Currently here at Starbucks near Magallanes Village... Listening to a wonderful classical music composed by... Mozart? Beethoven? I heard it so many times but classical music, I always forget the title of each composition. So sweet and yet so... May have to listen to classical music again... Later, will go home. Have to go home to make sure the pets are fed. Looks like it will rain. The skies are dark. I don't see a bit of sunlight. Perfect classical music. Fits the weather today. Not yet rai...

Russian and Spanish Language Lessons...

Yep, been reviewing Russian and Spanish languages since New Year's holidays. I think I should double the Russian language lessons, instead of 30-minute reading. This is because there are 365 days. Let's say I will only study for 360 days. Each day I spend 30 minutes. So 360 divided by 2 equals 180 hours. If I want this rushed, I think the best way is to make it 1 hour (or 2 hours, if possible) for Russian Review and 30 minutes for Spanish Review. Well, we'll see. I do remember an American sol...
