another night of memories

well, every moment, good or bad, is a memory to remember. it's something that we can laugh about or learn from. these memories are the ones that we can carry on for the rest of our lives. though we may forget some, it just depends on you what you would want to remember. usually, we would try and forget the most painful ones and only remember the happy times. well, who would like to keep a memory that would remind them of something bad that has happened? maybe there are some, but most of us only wants to keep better memories.

why am i saying this? it's because i want to thank those who have been with me through my good and bad times. even the most painful one, i would still like to remember all. and for me, the moments that you have shared with me are priceless for no moment can never be the same. we can make a wonderful memory same to as that before but it will not be the same. it can't be compared to the moment that we have had before. so why not make a different memory right? :)

haha. andami pang kadramahan eh noh. basta thanks everyone for last night. you've made it a wonderful memory to remember.

beware!

PLEASE BEWARE!
Just to give you a warning, avoid riding cabs with names like Wallis, Romcat &Lucky8. All these taxis are owned by just one family and most of its drivers are muggers, rapists or simply swindlers. According to the driver who is the source of this information, he used to work for the said company but lasted for only 2 days since he couldn't bear the idea of "manggagantso".

He said there is no single unit of this company that doesn't cheat. Each and every car that they own has "batingting" that is used to manipulate the taxi meter.

Further, the driver also informed that the owners hire anyone even if the person has a criminal record. As a matter of fact, the owners are fully aware of their drivers' misconduct yet they turn a blindeye on it coz what matters most to them is the boundary of their drivers that's to be given to them at the end of the day.

He also said that prior to leaving, he found out that one of his co-drivers mugged his passenger and even touched her private parts. When the passenger filed a legal complaint about it, naturally the driver got apprehended but was released because of bail.

Immediately the next day, the very same criminal was hired back by their company and was out driving his unit again. He said you will be able to recognize the taxi units of this company even at night since their taxi logos on top of their roof have a unique lighting. Instead of the usual yellow light on the "taxi" sign, theirs are red.

Prior to writing this, there was a research about the taxi company and it was found out that they have been featured in one of the shows in GMA-7 (Imbestigador) . Indeed they have proven that the drivers of this company are swindlers and muggers.

If you care about your family, friends, co-workers, classmates And other people close to you, pass this information along. We can never tell who their next victim is.

taken for granted

You know, what I felt about you
I thought that you understand
also, I knew you love me too
and yet, we didn't got a chance

But still I waited and waited
until my heart was broken
for you to finally say it
the feelings that're still unspoken

Take your time, ponder carefully
of the things that really mattered
I'm just right here, waiting patiently
waiting til you have an answer

Then I saw you, with her, calm and cool
my heart was full of hatred
you made me look like a fool
I was taken for granted

I never thought you'll do this
I never noticed anything
I just felt I didn't exist
and to you I was nothing

I was wrong to fall in love
moreover it was you
what was I thinking of
feeling it was all true

you know you made me wait
I was so devastated
when you didn't told me straight
I felt I was taken for granted.

to be continued nalang :))

i was hooked.

Oh yeah. I was hooked all right.

I was hooked on God.

Last night was the best. After few weeks or months without having something to let me feel God's love, I became "spiritually dry" and I thought, this was the right time to let God fill me up again.
And I was right.

"Nothing can separate me from God's love"

It hit me. That really did. I realized now that I shouldn't let anyone or anything keep me from loving God and/or receiving His love. And that no matter what, I should continue to love and serve Him.

Another one hit me, though I can't remember the words but it was telling me that He took and will take everything from me until I can see that He is there that He is all I need. I understood that very well. He let me experience some bad stuff so that I can see Him. Yet I didn't understood that before. So now that I do, I will think of that and I will just believe in him.

The sharer's stories affected me in one way or another. It hit me again. Everything that was happening there hit me. It made me feel his love for me.

And now, more than ever, I am revived. I am hooked on God.

PS. I'll upload the pics soon. :) I'm using mac eh. nasa pc nakasave. :P

while the momentum's still here.

well, yeah. it's been days but i really wanna write about it, so maybe that's why the momentum's still here. kasi usually it only lasts about a day and pag di ko nablog, wala na. :)) oh well. i should start now before the moment's gone :)

i just want to thank you for being there,
for giving me everything i need,
especially the warmth of your love and care
i owe to you every breath i breathe

about what you did the other day
it made me feel special in a way
your thoughtfulness brought me happiness
now it's up to me, to take care of the rest

i just wanna tell you that i changed
im still me but im not the same
you will know how much i really did
when i make you proud of our name

i am grateful for everything you do
i just thought i could do it too
someday you will be proud of me
that's the only thing i can guarantee

since the day i lived, you're by my side
watching my every move as my guide
you only want to protect me right?
that's why you don't want me late every night

though we had fights with each other
that's natural for a parent and daughter
when we always argue and yell
'cause there are things i couldn't tell

still i love you, my dear parents
you took care of me, your family
you're the one whom we can most depend
that's why i'll say thank you unexpectedly

haha. ayun! may pang philo na ko! haha! it's like hitting two birds with one stone! :)) yehey! :D

bored eh. :P

well ayun, umandar na naman ang ka-emohan ko. at chaka boring eh. :)) wala lang naman to. parang nursery rhymes lang :))

i cant do anything but to turn away from you, but all this feelings inside of me are true.

i cant see you anymore, but just a glimpse of you again will make my heartbeat faster just like before.

i still cry because you didnt know, but i cry harder regreting that i let go.

just go to where your heart yearns and i will be happy, though pain will be there knowing it is not me.

i saw you yesterday, and it seems you're doing okay, i wish i could be the same.

i really want you to know but thinking of rejection stops me from saying so..

its a pain to think of you, i wanted to forget, but dont want to from the day we first met

is it called love? this kind of feeling? the feeling of happiness and pain, the feeling of something you will never gain?

Friday, September 12

let me feel sad,

at least then i can feel that i am still alive.

yun oh! haha. isa nanaman sa mga gawa gawa ko :))
ang sabog kasi ng utak ko ngayon eh. oh well. :D

Thursday, September 4

hindi niyo naman kasi ako naiintindihan.

ano magagawa ko. eh sa hindi naman nila ko maintindihan? kasalanan na nila un. sila naman kasi ang walang panahon para makilala ako. tapos sasabihin nila na ako ang may kasalanan? tae.

iaapply ako lang ang natutunan ko sa school. sinasabi kasi nila na kung ano ano lang naman daw ang natututunan ko dun. pano kung ang sabi samin na iba iba ang paningin ng mga tao? so malamang, ibang ang pananaw ko sa pangyayaring yon kesa sa kanila. at ano ba? hindi ba nila alam na halos lahat naman ng kabataan nagdaan sa ganitong stage? hay nako.

bakit ba gusto nila parati sa sila ang tama? tapos sasabihan nila ako na hindi sa lahat ng oras ikaw ang tama. ang labooooo.

tang ina. gusto ko lang maglabas ng sama ng loob. ayoko sila harapin. andami kong gustong sabihin sa kanila. lahat as in. praktisado ko pa. paulit ulit na lahat sa utak ko. narerevised pa. pero bakit ganon? tila hindi ako makapagsalita sa harap nila? bakit pag kausap ko na sila eh wala na kong magawa kundi umoo at mag sorry at sumunod nalang muli sa kanila? duwag ba ako? o ayoko lang masaktan sila? siguro. at isa pa, nagsasawa na din ako sa paulit ulit na pagaaway na ganito. nakakabingi na. sawa na ko. ayoko na. hindi ko lang masabi.

ano ba ang tama? ano ba ang dapat gawin?

dapat bang hayaan ko ang sarili ko na ilabas ang lahat ng galit ko sa kanila dahil sa hindi nila pagkilala sa tunay kong sarili at hayaan silang masaktan sa mga sasabihin ko? o dapat ko nalang ba itong palampasin at hayaan nalang ito tulad ng mga dating pangyayari tutal sanay na ako sa ganito? hay nako.

hindi naman kasi nila ko maintindihan.

ayoko na magblog. :|

anlabo eh noh. ayaw magblog tapos eto ako nagbblog. haha. eh kasi wala lang. nakakawalang gana na magblog. tinatamad na ko. tas lalo pang nakakatamad kasi alam ko namang walang nagbabasa nito. tas nakakatamad nadin kasi patay din naman tong site ko eh. so what's the use diba? chaka madami dami nadin akong ginagawa at wala na kong time. weh. haha. oi totoo yan. minsan minsan na nga lang ako nagiinternet eh. haha.

at chaka naisip ko din, bakit nga ba ko nagbblog? ano ba napapala ko dito? meron siguro, tulad ng paglalabas ng saloobin, masaya man o hindi, at pwede nading gawing bulletin boards pang announce, at syempre pa, ang uso ngayon, libreng advertisement ng tinitinda mong mga gamit.

pero bakit nga ba ang mga tao'y di magkandamayaw sa pagbblog? kahit na alas tres na ng umaga, hindi makatulog, magbblog nalang para lang sabihin sa buong mundo na hindi siya makatulog. minsan naman, kahit ano na ang nilalagay basta lang makapagblog (tulad ko. haha). para ano? wala lang. papansin lang.

bakit nga ba at kelan nga ba naging ganito ka-essential ang pagbblog? nabuhay naman ang mga tao noon na gamit lamang ay bolpen at papel. chaka wala sa isip nila ang ganitong uri ng pag-eexpress ng sarili. ikaw ba, naisip mo ba simula noong bata ka pa na magblog?

at eto pa. di ba magbblog ung isang tao. sabihin nating tungkol ito sa sikreto nya na may nunal siya sa singit. bakit nya ipapaalam sa lahat ung sikreto nya eh sikreto nga yun? ang laboooo.

hay basta.

ano ba to. ang gulo ko talaga. sabi ko na ngang ayoko na magblog tapos eto, ang haba pa ng nagawa ko. ay ewan. basta. siguro magbblog nalang ako paminsan minsan para naman buhay tong site ko. haha. at panigurado, walang kwenta rin yung ibblog ko in the future gaya nito

natapos na din sa wakas, kasabay ng pagtila ng ulan

anlakas ng ulan. tuloy tuloy. buong araw. pero tumila ito ng isang beses. at sa isang beses na iyon ay natapos din ang lahat. isang napakasayang umpisa pagkatapos ng isang unos.

basta napakasaya ko dahil nailabas na namin ang lahat. wala ng problema. sana maging tuloy tuloy ito.

kung di nyo alam, ilang araw din patuloy ang pagtira sa amin ng napakalakas na bagyo. hindi ang bagyong ulan kundi bagyo ng luha. kung may ganun man. pero oo. ilang araw na naming bitbit bitbit sa amin ang pighating nagumpisa lang sa isang simpleng argyumento, na lumala ng lumala hanggang sa magkayayaang maghiwalay para matigil na ang lahat.

ngunit kung malakas man ang unos, mas malakas ang boses ng pagmamahal namin sa bawat isa. pinakalma ang lahat. isa isang nagsalita. naghanap ng solusyon, nagkapatawaran at nagdasal.

masasabi ko lang ay sa bawat pagtila nang ulan, may panibagong simula, may panibagong pag-asa, pag-asang ayusin ang sarili at magbago.

sa wakas natapos din, kasabay ng pagtila ng ulan. :)

tula :)

pinapagawa ako ng tula ng kapatid ko in TAGALOG. haha. minsan lang ako gumawa ng tagalog poem. well, para lang naman sa hw ng kapatid ko to eh. haha.
tinatamad ako magsulat kaya dito nalang niya kunin. :P

Hiling

nais kong makakita ng bituin,
at magdasal ng nakapikit
para matupad ang isang hiling
na parati kong pinipilit

ako'y nakatingala sa hangin
na may maraming ulap
sa gabing madilim
naghahanap ng kumikislap

umaasa na may bituin
kahit alam kong wala
para matupad ang isang hiling
kaya ako'y makakita sana...

Pag-asa

aasahan kita, maaasahan mo ako
ikaw at ako ay may pag-asa
basta lang ay magtulungan tayo
kalimutan muna ang problema
magisip at imulat
ang mga matang nasilaw na sa pera.

ikaw at ako ang tanging pag-asa
satin nakasalalay ang buhay
ng bawat mamamayan o masa
sana lang ito'y maging tunay

ikaw at ako ang ating kailangan
malalampasan kahit ano man
ating tiwala at pagkakaibigan
aabot sa walang hanggan...


ang corny ko :)) corny ba?? :P

i wanna learn magic badly :D

i wanna learn magic or illusion tricks :] can somebody teach me?? :) i want to learn so bad. haha. wala lang. there's something that made me want to learn about it. maybe it's the mysteries that lie behind it and also it makes me feel that impossible can be possible.

well, what inspired me is a movie that i just watched now lang, i don't know the title but it's really amazing. it was a love story of two childhood sweethearts who were separated just because of royalty and poverty (old english style sila eh.). (am i making sense?? :D)

the girl's name was Sophia(the richness) and the guy was Edward(the peasant). Edward was inspired by an old man i think (di ko kasi naumpisahan sa umpisang umpisa :P) that showed him a magic trick. yun. when Sophia saw him trying to do one, nagkagusto siya. :D basta un. ayoko na pahabain.

nung malaki na sila, and Edward was good in his tricks, he made her a necklace/ secret locket. alam nyo na next dun. haha. if not, they fell in love. then nahuli sila nung magtatanan na sila. awww :( and forbidden na sila magkita.

Edward left the town, and 15 years (or so,) later, he went back to their town to have a show. he was famous na btw, he was a known illusionist named EISENHEIM. then on one of his show, he saw Sophia all grown up, and with her fiance the crowned prince. (ouch!) he chose her to as a volunteer for a trick of his. and GRABE. AMAZING! basta he did the thing with a mirror blah blah. which i haven't seen in magic shows. tas yun. muling ibalik ang tamis ng pag-ibig :))

when they tried (for the second time around) to elope, ayun, napatay ung girl :( to Eisenheim's grief, he tried a new trick, an illusion of humans, like spirits as in! a half man first then children then Sophia's. everyone was shocked. and nabring up yung topic na kung sino talaga ung pumatay sa kanya.

it was such a big controversy kasi the crowned prince's name is at hand. siya daw pumatay kay Sophia. kaya yun, when he tried to reappear Sophia, he was arrested but before he was, he disappeared like his illusion. grabe if you have seen this. wow as in. :P

then yung police who tries to solve all the mysteries, solved one. that the crowned prince killed Sophia. guilty as he is, when the army/soldiers was getting nearer in his room, he shot himself. then the police got Sophia's necklace back. and a little kid went up to him and gave him a letter from Eisenheim. he saw him and follow him to the train station. he didn't caught Eisenheim but soon realized everything.

the whole story was to make him and Sophia together again. everything was a trick even Sophia's death. AMAZING siya basta.

haha.



wala lang.



I WANNA LEARN MAGIC! ^.^

Goodbye, Tatay.

As I wake up and heard the news
I was filled up with the blues
the sky is mourning in this moment
as I can feel the car's coldness
my tears just kept on flowing
I cant stop on crying

And now it's sinking in
that you are now with Him
I will miss you so much
I owe you my life and my mom's
I'll see you soon in up above
when we do, I'll give you a hug.
I'll miss you my tatay
but now I have to say goodbye...

huhu. why does this always happen to me? :| i am such a destroyer. am i cursed? jinxed maybe? haiiiii... this is depressing. :|

okay. it's been 4 months since i broke my last fone, by breaking the lcd screen. yeah. good one right? haha. it's a touch screen btw, so it's pretty useless now. and papa is still not doing anything about it. what a waste. i love that fone. :|

after a month since then, he bought me a new fone. almost like my other fone but just a little smaller. it's pretty much the same in everything. and i love it too :)

now 3 months has passed and it gave in. it doesn't work anymore. :| it's just that. when i turn it on, it only displays one thing on the screen and it stops there. huhu. one moment i was using it and then few minutes after it stopped working. i so hate when this stuff happens. and papa doesn't know i broke it, yet.

now i don't have a fone again. i broke it. why does everything i use easily breaks!? like our digicam that i broke just a few days before we left for the states. and my necklace w/c i broke on the day of our flight. hay.. this is so depressing :((

catching the right one :)

This is an urgent reminder for those who are for Christ. I've heard this countless times but I don't get sick of it: Don't yoke with unbelievers. Because, really, what business has the righteous have with unrighteousness? What has light have to do with darkness?

-----------------------

A more important question is - How do you Catch the RIGHT One?

Simple: You take only the bus that's headed the RIGHT DIRECTION.

First we must allow our Heavenly Father to do the picking.

Second, the decision for a mate must be made on a spiritual and intellectual basis before it's made on an emotional one.

What about love?, you ask. I'll tell you why. "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? (Jer 17:9). The heart is willful and is driven by its own agenda. It does not consider things rationally and intelligently - it just loves to love!

Therefore you have to point it in the right directions: "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life" (Proverbs 4:23).

Whenever you meet a man, you need to get clearance from God, check out his attributes, and then allow your heart to engage.

Dating exists not for mating; it exists for collecting data. I believe that the biblical design would be friendship, courtship and then marriage. Friendship is two people walking together in agreement and accountability, learning and growing together. Courtship follows the mutual agreement to commit to one another exclusively - it is the decisive turning toward the agreed-upon goal of the marriage altar. It is a period of laying a foundation and preparing your life together after marriage. But dating? Well, if you do date, use the time wisely to gather facts.

So when you do gather facts, let us compare the process to clothes shopping.

1. Check out the fabric. Is the person mate material? Does this man have an intimate relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ? Does he care what God thinks about his behavior? Is he accountable to God as well as another co-laborer in the faith? Accountability is an important factor. It is imperative to maintaining a committed relationship. Is your potential spouse a member of the same family - the family of God? Scripture is clear on this: "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?" (2 Cor 6:14). You need to have common interest and values and agree on the essentials of living day to day. You have a similar spiritual walk. You eat the same diet. You enjoy a lot of similar things. You have like interests, like goals in life, like opinions on basic life issues. You have had like experiences in your background. Though there is some truth to the idiom that opposites attract, like-minded folks fare better together. Furthermore, does he want to get married? If you want to be married and your dreamboat isn't interested, don't waste your time. Remember, women fall in love and get married. Men decide to get married and then look for a wife. Note the difference in order. So if a guy says he's not looking for anything serious, take his words seriously. If he's not going your direction, get off the bus & wait for the right one.

2. Does this man want you? Is he pursuing you? The man who is right for you will pursue you and God's hand in the relationship will be clear. No guessing, no fleeces, no dead ends. Scripture says: "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord" (Prov 18:22). Note - who finds whom? THE MAN FINDS THE WIFE. From the beginning of time, God has transported men & women across the world in order to put them together. At the RIGHT TIME, He will bring that man on the scene and he will find you. In God's perfect design, the man is the one who recognizes his mate. Adam has no problem recognizing that Eve was his missing rib. You do not need to strategically place yourself anywhere. You don't have to help a guy out because he's shy. Men will do whatever they have to do to get what they truly want. The man in your life should recognize you as the pearl of great price in his life and be willing to do whatever he must in order to gain your hand. If he is passive about gaining your affections, take it as a sign that he is not interested. Many a woman's mother has suggested that it is a good idea to marry a man who loves you more than you love him. As cold as that sounds, it actually might be scriptural if you stop to think about it: "We love him because he first loved us" (1 John 4:19). Until then, take the ultimate chill pill. You don't need a bunch of men in your life to make you feel all right about yourself. You need only one man- your man, the one God has selected to select you. And trust me, the right man at the wrong time can be just as awful as the wrong man at any time. So trust God's timing in this. He is the ultimate matchmaker. Relax, sit pretty and allow your self to be found. Again - WAIT until the man voices his intentions. He should take the lead in establishing the relationship. You may have inkling that he is the one, but God will use the man to set the tone of the relationship. Allow him the opportunity to woo you - this is your first act of submission. Jesus set the standard for all men to follow. They should love us first. And they should lead the relationship.

3. The man in your life should not desire to move into your house, only into your heart. A man who prepares for your future has made his intentions clear. A man who is husband material has the means to take care of a wife. He is a responsible human being who understands he needs to have something to offer. In short, a man should have the means to be a suitable lover for you.

4. Check out his buddies. Everyone knows birds of the same feather flock together, yet most women fail to see the connection between a man and his friends. A man's pals tell you a lot about the person that you haven't seen yet. They reveal things about the guy's character that might be hidden when he is on good behavior. Everyone knows how to put his best foot forward. Don't stay focused on the foot, check out the rest of the body!

5. Check out his relationship with his mother. How does he treat her? This is your preview of how he will treat you. There are lots of men who, because of a negative relationship with their mothers, really don't like women, yet say they do. Unresolved issues between mother and son continue between husband and wife.

6. Remember that a man's family reveals the cloth from which he's cut. Take note and decide whether you want your future with the man in your life to look like his family situation.

7. Check out the patterns of his life. Do you see repeated cycles of drama in his personal kingdom? broken relationships? problems in making commitments? Including the job market? Mood swings? Is a problem always someone else's fault? Does he embrace responsibility or shirk it? Does he keep his promises? Is he a man of good reputation? Remember all garments look wonderful hanging in the store, but with wear, some being to unravel. Give yourself time and space to check out the man in your life. Time will always reveal whether or not he is made of the right stuff.

8. Does this man have a vision for his life? Is he running with that vision? Remember, God decided Adam needed help once Adam got busy DOING his assignment. As we saw Adam, a man doesn't need help until he is busy doing what he was created and called to do. Is your guy guided by sense of destiny and purpose, or does he just allow life to happen around him? A man who is not certain of his mission can be a most miserable person - and you'll be miserable too if you know where YOU want to go in life. A man who has vision is not intimidated by a woman whose mission statement is clear. He will be your best ally, cheerleader and assistant because he wants you both to make it! A man who cannot be supportive of your achievements because he is floundering in a sea of uncertainty over his own life is not a healthy partner to have and to hold forever. Creating dependencies or feelings of obligation is not the way to get the best out of your man. Somewhere along the way, he will resent you and flee from the smothering burden of obligation he associates you with. You want a man who is firmly anchored in his identity in Christ. Remember, we are looking for a man who will be priest and leader of his home. His first instinct should be to want to cover you, redeem you, and provide for you. Your job is to decide if this is the man God has ordained for you to complement.

9. Complementarity. Do your talents and gifts complement his? Do his gifts complement yours? What about your temperaments? Do you see the two of you as an effective team capable of bringing blessing to the lives of those around you? Do your futures mesh? Can you coordinate your gifts in an attractive and effective way? This is why knowing your purpose is so important. Make sure your hearts beat for mutual causes. When I go shopping always consider the fabric, the fit and what I already have in my closet. Will my next purchase be a complementary addition to what I already have? If I find that I am going to have to buy shoes and matching accessories to go with a new outfit, I leave it right on the rack. It is too expensive a proposition. If the man you meet makes you feel that you need to completely reinvent yourself, something is wrong. This is where I ask you to consider the relationship in terms of cost. Is this relationship expensive spiritually, emotionally or physically? Does your longing for a mate make you willing to forfeit who you are in the process? Or does he see you as the gift that you are? The man in your life should consider you a rare find, a priceless jewel- because of you he is getting ready to get blessed big-time! Any relationship that causes you to feel unworthy, unlovely, unacceptable, undesirable or that you have to work for love, is too expensive! God has called the man to cover, protect and provide not only materially for a woman, but emotionally and spiritually as well. You should be richer in mind, body and spirit for your union with the man of your dreams. The man in your life should make rich deposits into your heart and spirit, not withdrawals.

10. Does he have a healthy love & acceptance of himself? Make sure the man in your life has taken time to heal from past relationships and has made peace with himself. How he cares for himself is how he will care for you. A man's relationship with God is crucial here. His love for himself will only be as strong as his love for God. This is not something that you can impart. You cannot be his savior or teacher. That is out of spiritual order. In his rightful place as your personal priest, he should be leading you to a richer relationship with Christ. If he is causing you to compromise your faith and destabilize your walk, if he is leading you into sexual sin or causing you to be distracted from your commitment to Christ, the relationship is too expensive. Offending the Lover of your soul, who promises you eternal love, is too high a fare to pay for a ride that has a limited run. If you and your man can't soar in the Spirit, when the force of your love for another is tested by the pull or gravity of the world, your union will not be able to survive. So you decide. How much is your life worth? How much is your love worth? You will be able to accept only what you believe you deserve. God himself calculated the worth of your love and decided it was worth His life. He now pledges you His love for eternity. Yes, Jesus sets the example for all others to follow when He paid a ransom for His bride. Should you expect less from a mortal man? Throughout the Biblical age, men were willing to pay the cost for the hand that they desired. The truth of the matter is, everyone knows that anything worth having, costs. And no one gets a ride in this life for free.

can't sleep, so here :)

well, this summer i was supposed to change my sleeping habits. dapat matulog ng maaga. pero it's not my fault. hindi pa ko sanay matulog ng maaga eh. :))
well, it's all because of the sem that was...

i say na puro wala lang as in WALA LANG ung feeling this 2nd sem. compared to our first sem, mas walang kwenta (joke :b) ung 2nd sem in a way na parang wala na kong natutunan.

before, nung first sem, ninanamnam ko pa ang pagiging college student, as in nag-aaral talaga ako sa bahay.haha. pero seryoso ganun ako nung first sem. ung tipong gigising ng maaga para magbasa sa lit, sa pgc at asa kung ano pa. pero nung 2nd sem, wala! nawalan nako ng gana!!

gigising ako just in time para kumaen at maligo and saktong dadating sa school, misan late pa nga eh.haha.sa school na din ako nagaaral at nagbabasa, pero di na nakikinig sa ibang prof. haha.

mas naging kampante ako ngayong sem, nadalian nga ako eh. kasi pag biglang nawala ung challenge para bang bigla akong tinatamad. ganun ung nafeel ko this sem.

well, even though pa-petiks petiks lang ako this sem, i'm super thankful kasi madami din naman akong natutunan, sa academics at sa buhay. medyo nakakaya ko na rin ang college life. sana mas maging okay ang second year. sana tulad sa high school, eto sana ang maging pinakamasayang year sa college life ko at ng mga blockmates ko. :)

Endorsees are the products

In technological determinism, the theory by Marshall McLuhan in the metaphor of the environment, says that the medium is the message. Nowadays, it maybe right. The medium does not contain the message, rather it is the message.
Most mediums are the television, the radio and the Internet. These mediums bring the messages to the audience; most especially the advertisements. Advertisers often use the popularity of the celebrities and other famous personalities to sell their product. Because they know that many people would follow them because of their fame. And consumers would not think whether it is necessary or not; they would immediately buy the product just because they think their celebrity idol uses it.
“In advertising, women’s bodies are used sexually to sell products more often than men’s. A 1997 advertising study showed that white women in roughly 62% of ads were "scantily clad", in bikinis, underwear, etc, while the same was true for 53% of black women. For men, the figure was only 25%. Women were also represented in stances of powerlessness more often, and black women were likely to be featured in animal prints, in predatory poses.”
Mostly women are used to sell products because of the attraction of the viewers to them. This increases the viewer’s interest of the product. They catch the attention of the viewers through their looks, their faces and their sexy bodies. And so the viewers would not think about the product, they would think about the women who endorse the product otherwise.
An example is a sexy commercial of a branded tissue. There are women who use tissues of the said brand. They maybe models, actresses, big personalities, etc. They capture the attention of the viewers through it’s ad on TV; the viewers saw it and will know that that product is good. But what the viewers know is that the tissue is good not the brand because it was what they saw on TV and the brand only follows after.
Viewers don’t think twice about what the advertisement is or to what it is saying to them. They think about the beautiful bodies of women whom they get to see in the commercial. Such commercial was the controversial Ryanair ad for their back-to-school promotions. The company used a scantily clad schoolgirl in their commercial which brought complaints from disturbed citizens. The ad was stopped immediately.
Therefore, in the advertising industry, their way of getting the consumer’s attention and make them buy their products is through their use of what is popularly effective today: the use of celebrities, famous personalities and/or the use of scantily clad girls. This makes the medium, not sending the message but it is the message itself. People would not care about the product or the brand; what they would think about is the beautiful women that they see on the advertisements that use the product. They may say, “Wow! That girl is so beautiful! Maybe it’s because of that thing she’s endorsing.” Or “If Brad Pitt has it, I’ll have it too.” This makes the audience unaware of such things that they will buy and consume; they are just receiving the message that is to buy that product.
