This Time Tomorrow

Ah, this time tomorrow, where will we be?  I’m reminded of something I wrote before about experiencing what it’s like to be Schrödinger’s cat as  I watched an Ateneo vs La Salle UAAP game. Looking into that quantum stuff is pretty much what they mean by going a bit too deep into the rabbit hole, I think….

The Machine is Us

Look how artsy-looking my blog post is. They’re just CC0 license  photos from pexels.com, meaning no need for attribution and could be modified or repurposed for personal or even commercial use. Remember when we used to call this (blogging, and all) “web 2.o” (two point ow)? I just remembered that the machine is us video and…

Earthquake

My nap turned into oversleeping and I woke up almost midnight. And like most of our generation’s behavior, the first thing I do is face every screen I can. Earthquake. They warn of a coming disaster. They remind of childhood drills that’ve been embedded in us. Like stop, drop, roll, they say hide under a…

Why Every Millennial Needs a TEMPUR® Bed

We spend a a third of our lives sleeping. That’s an average of about 230,000 hours in a lifetime. With society’s demands from our generation, are we really getting enough sleep? But you see, it’s not about quantity of sleep or the number of hours we put in. It’s the quality. Research shows that even…

Let The Good Times Roll

“Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish  — a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow — to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive…

Globe GoUNLI20 Launched on National Best Friend Day

It’s National Best Friend Day. I love how there’s a lot of quirky and random holidays nowadays. I don’t necessarily participate. For me, because it’s a Sunday, it’s more of National Sleep All Day Day. Either way, this new promo from Globe is pretty cool: It reminds me of Cornetto’s Hanggang Saan Aabot Ang 20 Pesos mo…

Tonight’s FT: The Bob Black Sandwhich

I just created an awesome hotdog sandwich recipe that I shall refer to as The Bob Black Sandwich in tribute to what I consider to be his magnum opus The Abolition of Work. Everyone who participated in my not-so-successful good clean fun coffee only work night have left and so I’m stuck with hunger and…

Itanong Mo Sa Dagat

“Itanong mo sa dagat,” a friend suggested during a trip to one of the most breathtaking islands in the Philippines. “Sabi ng dagat, there’s plenty of fish in the sea,” I jokingly replied. Calaguas islands in Camarines Norte is crazy beautiful. I’ve been there before around two years ago but it still felt like my first…

Fun Weekend

  Fun weekend. New friends. Good times. Painfully cold and tiring but worth it. There’s this really moving copy I learned from my previous work: “Saan nanaman ako dinala ng mga paa ko?” And the more exciting question: saan tayo sunod na pupunta?

About Time (2013)

I was going through Tumblr for photos from the About Time film when I realized that it’s all too perfect. After all the serotonin have worn off, at the end, you’ll realize that what made the story so perfect was the protagonist’s (and his father’s) ability to travel back in time. In fact, it’s so…

A town or district that is an administrative unit, in particular

It’s a nice breezy night with Christmas lights adding a bit of life to the clockwork city. I hurried my way through the bustling crowd and crossed the roads with no regard for consequences.  I’ve always known it’s irrational. But hey, to err is human, some say. I make my way to the local restaurant/pub and look…

In the Face of Mercury Retrograde

I was told by random astrology websites that Mercury in retrograde may negatively affect me with anything that has to do with travel, health, and communication. Being uneasy about the idea that heavenly bodies intervene with my freewill, I decide to plan a trip to Zambales. What began as a trip for a group of…

Fear and Loathing in CDO

I awake with a Fight Club poster staring me in the face. It read, “Self-improvement is masturbation, self-destruction is the answer; this is your life, ending one minute at a time.” I begin to wonder, as all becomes so surreal, if my friend actually exists or it was all me. I take a look out…
