Morning Has Broken

She won’t come back
The sun is fighting
To un-seat the moon

Your eyes to the tune
Your ears don’t hear
The music in the room

The ache in your heart
Bid goodbye to your dream
I’ll take it

Day 12: Five Guys You Find Attractive

Does it have to be JUST 5?

Ok, let me limit my list then to celebrities. And, my consideration in this list are mainly, physical characteristics.

1. Michael Jordan
Need I say more? He has that 'air' in the court that spells confidence, something that he can back up with his skills. And, well, the crease in his face when he smiles? Irresistible!

2. Bernard Palanca
He is the only local actor that makes me cry e-v-e-r-y-t-i-m-e! He is elusive. That's why I find him more attractive. He has this 'bad boy' look but oozes chivalry. Once, I wrote in my journal about him. That was the time when he had this character called Anilov in a soap opera.

3. Jude Law
"The Holiday" explains why I find him attractive. He was a 'weep-er'! I dont care about the scandals he's been in. He just looks awesome!

4. Patrick Dempsey
The way his eyes grow small when hit by light...*faint*

5. Anfernee Hardaway
I need not explain. :)

Day 11 - My Family

I wrote about how I appreciate the way our parents raised us. We are not a perfect family, as no one is. But it sure is a Home!

My father is very headstrong. He likes to win in arguments. That's why we are the last two people who are always left at the dinner table. Haha!

My mother is, well, the kind of mother as mother is defined. That and so much more. She likes to dip her fingers in all our issues. She likes to know everything that is happening to us. She like to give her unsolicited opinions and advises. It was only lately that we became really close. That's when I learned to accept her for her 'motherly' ways and concede that I can't run my life like 'i know it all'. Truth is, mothers still know best. ;)

Jem, the one in blue, is my sister next to me. She is 4 years younger than I am. She's terribly funny. No day is dull when you are with her.

Jez, (far right) is our youngest. She is choleric-melancholic. She likes routine and order. Her compassion is welling up.

And then, there's me. :D

Day 9 - Is Education Important to You

Education is important to me. But, getting a degree is not.

Education involves processes that require a certain amount of discipline. I think, this combination is what really contributes to learning. Because this is the way I define education, I give high regard to learning facilitated by an institution. This is not to say that I discount the fact that so much is also learned outside of it.

I'd like to share with you what I wrote in my other blog about education - My Free Education.

Day 8: Eat it!!!


Am back to do the blogging challenge. It says 30-day, right? Not exactly 30 consecutive days. Hehe! so, I'd continue from here on my challenge. And what better topic to pick-up where I left off than: "WHAT I ATE TODAY".

I am a food fan. As long as my taste buds are working, I think that I should enjoy food. I remember the first time I got rewarded for topping an exam. I was 7 and I just topped the entrance exam for the elementary school of a state university. I didnt know what that meant or what of a big deal that was. All I understood was, I must have done something great because my father came home and surprised me with a pint of Ice Cream, wrapped in news paper.

That was the beginning of my love affair with Ice Cream. Until today, Ice Cream takes that spot in my most treasured moments. Be in Celebration or Frustration.

And yes, Coffee Crumble always, always clears out the clouds!

But for today, no Ice Cream.

Dinner: Blue Marlin with Vegetables. Locally called, "Tinola". Basically, boiled fish with little seasoning and some greens. My parents love to eat this because its good for the health. I, however, could not understand why they love such a bland dish. But, I live in my parents' house and we eat whatever is set on the table. Period. (Eaten with rice, of course!)

Mid-Afternoon: Pepperoni Pizza. A local take-out makes the best pizza in town. :)

Breakfast: Rice and Sun-dried Fish. "Lamayo" is fresh fish, halved and seasoned with salt then left for a few days to dry under the sun. It is then fried to make up the best breakfast ensemble I can ever imagine: Rice, Lamayo and Spicy Vinegar with a cup of Coffee. You might notice the remote control beside my breakfast spread. Yes, I watch TV while taking breakfast. Usually, everyone is gone when I wake so I eat alone. However, I must put to note that BREAKFAST is my favorite meal of the day. To share it with someone, someday, won't be too much of a prayer, right? hehehe!

Enjoy eating!!!
