Happy fathers' day

Sunday, June 21, 2009

"Fatherhood is difficult but very rewarding", one of my students told me earlier today.

We can take that statement figuratively and literally.

I think being a father is rewarding because he can see himself in his kid's physical appearance as well as attitude, disposition or behavior. If he has been a good role model, expect his child to be a good person like his dad. There's an overly used cliche that goes, "like father, like son/daughter."

I am sure a good child gives his/her father fulfillment and pure joy. Let's not forget that a naughty child brings so much fun too! (chuckle)

We can also take his statement literally as in there are great rewards in being a father. A child's hug and kiss, a drawing, card, any present no matter how simple and inexpensive will always brighten a father's day.

As we get older and financially independent, we become more capable of giving more expensive gifts - and special as our fathers are, why don't we give them gifts that they'll truly love?

It's not that a present is really required. A present is not a gift unless it is cheerfully given. But if we have the capacity to buy stuffs for our dads as our way of appreciation for the many years they've toiled to help us get through school until university, why not buy toys for big boys?

My father loves bicycles. Unfortunately, he lost his sense of hearing after he got into a vehicular accident while he was riding one and was side-swept by a speeding jeepney. He still rides on his road bicycle until this day though.

When I was young, I have very fond memories of my father teaching me biking. My father bought my older brother a kiddie bike that I still got to use.

Well, I wondered if I can afford to buy him a new one. I checked a buying guide for bicycles and I realized I don't have enough resources this time. Hopefully, I can save more money next year!

Bouncing Back

Saturday, June 20, 2009

This blog will be celebrating its first blogversary tomorrow.

I decided to move from Pchi.i.ph to Blogger after many inconveniences I experienced in the former.

On June 21, 2008, I wrote my first journal entry in this blog entitled "Ironic, isn't it?". And since then, this blog has been my freedom wall where I wrote everything I wanted to; like Philippine politics, environmental issues, random musings, poems, my love story, among other topics.

In the span of one year, I was also able to make friends with six hundred people or more - I just lost count. The whole experience has been truly wonderful.

But as I look back, I was really eager in the beginning but after a while, or just recently... I started to lose interest. I wrote less often, I haven't responded to some exchange link requests, haven't checked friends' blog and would not remember checking my blog myself. HAHA.

I'm supposed to have a celebration here, right?

But I don't have the festive mood. So I am just going to let it pass through like any ordinary day.

However, I've been really thinking of bouncing back and getting serious. I'd like to make more friends, write more posts, rekindle old friendships (which I have taken for granted) and hope to learn more things related to blogging, SEO, online marketing and how to make some more little profit.

I hope you are still there to support me in my journey. So help me God. :D

Pchi laments...

Wednesday, June 17, 2009


It's frustrating
I want to write about a certain topic
I've been meaning to make one
Been seated long enough in front of the PC
still unable to compose something.


I'd fly right now to where you are
If I only can
I'd go places with you
Life's been so lonely
I've been feeling so blue


I'd never trade my country
To any other one
My country may be poor
Some people call us a people of slaves
I don't care what they think
'Cause there's truly no other place
Where my heart belongs
Just this paradise called 'Philippines'.
If I had to live my life all over again,
I'd still choose to be a Filipino.

No to Change in Charter, No to Constitutional Assembly

Thursday, June 11, 2009

I've started this blog as a political blog but over time - I got disinterested in politics, politicians and political issues.

I didn't care. I didn't have my opinions or I was too lazy to voice out my opinions. There's no use in talking about political issues anyway. I got busy on something else - something more productive, something more meaningful - looking for my place in this world. Nothing much really changes in the Philippine's politics. They are the same old stories.

I see no reason to amend the Philippine's constitution and there was no clamor from the public to push for a change in the political system. The Representatives whose functions are ought to "represent" their people have their own political agenda and probably manipulated by the people who would greatly benefit if such change were implemented.

I don't have in-depth information. I did not research and I rarely have time to watch the television or read newspapers online.

But it doesn't feel right to push for the charter change. I feel strongly about it. Call it intuition if you like, I just don't feel comfortable hearing about it.

having second thoughts
Should I just let the waves
blow me away?

making decisions
isn't easy as it seems
God, whisper to the wind
and let me know
how to make sense
out of my common sense

bring me out
away from this deadlock
