Prisons of the society

I have made this through wattpad and I don’t know what to call this. A monologue? A speech not spoken? More like thoughts or opinions maybe. I have edited a poem version but I didn’t save it so heres my thoughts.

From childhood to adulthood I struggle. Well I can define now Life is a struggle. Most people make it even harder. Yes Most. Why? the answer facade. Good in your face but behind there’s the agenda to manipulate to control.

Do you know what is your first prison? School… It widens your knowledge and englightens you from the darkness of not knowing the society’s common language but at the same time limits you. Limits you from being you. You are bound to listen when you just want to go to sleep. You spend 90% of you daylight there. Less time to play.

The second one is your job. Most of our problems are job related. You can count it. See? How many times you have to even bring the problem home? The first one even is finding the job itself. We are set to finish task within given time. Standards and procedures to follow. Works overtime, emotions control and fake it even. You should put the smile though you are so tired and about to burst. You are trained to be competent they say but no. They’re making us robots. No emotions just the program task installed.

The powerful and the rich the top hipocrites. They tell us what is right and wrong but they themselves the dirtiest. They do everything to stay with money and power. What they did’nt realized yet is they are also Humans. They’ll get sick. They’ll lay in their deadbed. They’ll die. People will talk about them. Mock them and make fun of them.

Why cant we just play it all fair? Choose love and kindness anytime and anywhere.

Love and kindness all the way!!!

Would you like to see my poem about the “high class” members of the society?

Latest Foodscapade!!! The Coffee Library and Dencio’s Bar and Grill

Food food food!!!

Food food food! The place is called Coffee library. It’s a small two storey restaurant with tables and chairs made of unlaminated woods (The imperfect colors and edges made it beautiful). They serve coffees (of course hahaha) pastas, bread and rice meals too. We came there for my friend’s birthday. I forgot the exact name of our orders hahaha. The pasta is like cream shrimp whatever and the chicken is ????????? Sorry I can’t rememer. They all taste good and worth the price. 170 pesos ( about 3$)for the pasta. The drink has some rum on it and again I’ve forgotten what its called haha. They are located at Urbiztondo, San Juan, La Union, the surfing capital of the region. Here’s their facebook page @coffeelibrarysjlu. They also have a branch at Baguio City (Summer capital of the Philippines)

The next week, I was with friends from work. We initially plan to have some tea but then we are just too hungry and it’s lunch time. One friend suggested that we should try Dencio’s bar and grill. Here are the photos.

The foods we ordered are sisig, vegetable karekare, halo halo and rice. The sisig was delicious and with some crunchy meat bits. The vegetable karekare was a little bitter maybe bacause of the vegetables, it has eggplant and “puso ng saging”(heart of a banana? Hahaha). The halo halo was too sweet. It costed 115php (about a little more than 2 dollars). The green mango shake tasted good. My friend ordered it and allowed me to taste it. The servings are enough for 3-4 persons. There were 3 of us, we paid 350php each, a total of 1050 php (21$).

You can check wikipedia to know more about this bar and grill. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dencio’s

Both food place had good costumer service and staff. But so far I prefer and enjoy coffee library.

Will I go back?

Of course! Both the Coffee library and Dencio’s. I will try other food on their menu and bring my family. 🙂

Don’t forget to check on them when you visit La Union, Philippines. 🙂

Beautiful Reflection (poem)

If you look in the mirror youll see
Always been beautiful haven’t we?
But you refuse to believe me
You listen to the voices of the society

You didnt even want to look at me
You stay behind so less could see
You dont want them buzzing like a bee
Stop listening with hypocrisy

As you grow up and time goes
You are stronger and weakness low
Coz no ones gonna bring down that smile
No ones gonna come close even for a mile

We work as a team you and I
We fight and bring the fire
There are times of weakness
But you know we always survive

First One Centavo coins I’ve ever seen!!!

There was this one time I am cleaning our closet and found a small plastic bag of old coins. They are mostly centavos dated 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s with different engravings and shapes like face, fish and butterfly.

I tried to read all of their dates to find the oldest. Who knows they worth millions? Eh? Hahaha I usually picked the shinier or clearer ones. The one centavo stood out. It has Lapu Lapu face in it’s head. Lapu lapu is our first national heroe who fought the Army of Ferdinand Magellan.

Here is the info I found at https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces2465.html

Oh aluminum that’s why it’s silvery white or whatever hahahah. We almost don’t use centavo coins anymore unless they are use as change at the department or grocery store so I’m really ecstatic to see one and even to see Lapu Lapu in monetary for the first time. Hahahahaha

Who among you collect old coins? Can I sell it? I found few u.s dime here too and letelephone token. Hahahahah…

The coins are in the process of soaking in a mixture of vinegar and baking soda.

I’ll make another blog incase I’ll find unusual, atleast for me hahahah.

Yellow, (A poem)

I have an account at AllPoetry site called HeadsInTheClouds. There was this poem contest which theme is to describe a color to someone who’s been blind for all their life. Here’s the poem I wrote.

Yellow

My litte hand hold the crayon
And color my little masterpiece
Always been amaze
How much light it gives

Its like the icing in a cake
The sweetest taste
The fragrant of most flowers
As most have it as their color

The scent that awakens your senses
As its the color of the sun
Makes heads turn around
When someone wears it

The undertone of some skin
Soft, smooth and clear
Maybe my words will make you understand
The color is you when you’re around

“Why yellow?” you may ask.

As stated in the first stanza, I find it brightening when I tried to use it to color my drawings when I was a kid and other reasons that’s also in the poem. Hahaha. Hope you like it. 🙂


What is the color that attracts you? It’s not necessarily your favorite.

Crissa Steps Bradley Shoes Review (My New Year Shoes haha)

I’ve been looking for a new pair of shoes from stores here and online. Something comfortable, affordable and with good quality. (I’m always confortable with rubber and running shoes.)

I came across with Crissa steps on social media. Crissa is a clothing brand known for years in the Philippines. They are usually jeans and tops so that’s the time I found out they sell shoes too. I’ve bought a jean from them before and it’s nice.

Their shoes were on sale but sizes and designs are limited. I end up buying it from lazada. I’m torn between red, black and navy blue. I chose navy blue size 40, their biggest size.

Here’s how it looks at lazada platform

It costed about $9 depends on dollar-peso rate. It came after 5 days. It didn’t have a box. I’m kinda disappointed with that but when I open the package it is really beautiful.

It’s perfect. It compliments any color or bottom whether shorts, pants or skirt. It doesn’t look cheap. I’m definitely gonna buy other colors again. 🙂

Rating? 5! 5! 5! Affordability, Quality and design…

Here’s the other designs that I like.

What casual footwear do you prefer when going out?


Unnoticed Beauty

I’ve been living in our baranggay for 20 years. Our baranggay is surrounded by plants and trees but I never thought they are as beautiful, worthy of tourism beauty. Here are some of the photos I’ve taken…

We also have the river. Hope to take more photos the next time. 🙂

Nars

Ano ba kami sa bansang to?
Problemang dapat solusyunan?
O isang propesyong higit na kelangan?
Ngunit bakit Pagkakaroon ng trabaho ay programa lang?
Isusumbat ang sweldong nararapat lamang?

Sadya bang hindi maamin na sa bansang to kami pa ay kulang?
Bakit hindi punan lahat ng pangangailangan?
Sa publiko pasyente ay siksikan
Nars wla sa mga eskwelahan

Kapwa pa nurse tayo’y nilalamangan
Training dito bayad doon ni wala ka pang pinagkakakitaan
Hihingin ng ospital ang training at experience mo
Labas nito’y ikaw magbabayad sa libre mong serbisyo

Kung ika’y contractual walang benipisyo
Tagasalo ng trabaho pati mali sagot mo
To the highest level pa ang sermon at insulto

Kay saklap hindi ba? ni respeto’t protection hndi maibigay sa iyo.
Buti pa ang ibang bansa kami pinapahalagahan.
Hihintayin nyo pa bang “You never know what you got till it’s gone.”
