New Beginnings….


Standing at the altar

I have always been a romantic. Even as the years passed by, and I have become a little bit jaded and cynical about things in life… I have a complete, absolute faith in Love and Romance. Things may be deformed, philosophies may be disputed and nullified, supposed scientific theorems may crumble but there is just something about two people promising each other to love and to cherish, till death do us part.

There was this time when I visited a church and there was this wedding. The bride and groom were complete strangers to me but during the whole ceremony I was fighting back tears… I told my friend in a whisper”I think I am going to cry..” and she laughed! I know it may seem uncharacteristic of me to be emotional but that’s just me. I silently cry at weddings because it’s a celebration of love. Even if it doesn’t exist in my personal realm, others have found it and cherished it. Love do exists! It can be selfless and beautiful. It may not last to forever but there was this moment in time (naks, whitney Houston is that you?)… a picture served as proof that there was a pure, unadulterated love between two people.

Just a ceremony? For me, weddings, baptisms, etc. are necessary rituals. A ritual of passage for each stage of our lives… it’s not about blessings and accepting favor from a deity but it’s a way of marking each stage of our personal evolution. Of all rituals, I love weddings the most.

To my good friend Manding and to her husband John, I wish that this snapshot of love be with you the rest of your lives. I know this will work because I was a witness of how Manding transformed from a girl to a lovely lady. As I look at their pictures, I can’t help but wonder at two beautiful, innocent souls finding each other amidst the challenge of being born at two separate continents and two different races. I really can tell that Amanding has finally found someone who will finally complete her already complete soul.

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

The Iphone experience

Truth be told, I was happy with my glamorous MMS only phone. I can text, I can call and it's handy. But when I begin my relationship with my Iphone, I am a convert to super moder handheld devices.

I literally don't open my laptop anymore when I am at home. I only need my Iphone to check my emails, facebook, update my twitter, watch videos, podcasts, etc. I don't want to work with documents at home so this is something I find so useful.

I am really at awe with its features (you have to understand that I took a very giant leap in technology). The mere fact that I can check emails and update my calendar are useful features - in a major-major way.

Imagine having the convenience of reading the news, downloading time filler games and of course, there's this useful app - FOOD SPOTTING! It can help you find the nearest bakery, bulalohan, etc.

On the other hand, knowing that this device can be tracked can be spooky! Imagine that it has all of your informatio…
