If pain must come...

If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him. Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.

Paulo Coelho (By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept)


up up and away

A symphonic balance of captivating silence and clever dialogue, belly-laugh humor and tear-in-the-eye despair, fast-paced action scenes and scenes slowed for their precious detail, UP the newest movie offer from Disney Pixar tells the story of Carl Fredricksen a 78-year-old retired balloon salesman who – after the loss of his wife – is left agitated by the world around him and regretful of desires unfulfilled. An unfortunate altercation pushes Carl to escape society and finally chase after the couple’s lifelong dream. Carl quickly realizes he’s not alone in this adventure as 8-year-old wilderness explorer Russell has secretly stowed away for the ride.

A heart warming story of sentimentality, it speaks to the humanity in everyone. A sensitive and at the same time full of life and humor. UP delivers a wondrous world filled with people and creatures you'll fall head over heels in love with. For me it earns a spot as one of the best films of the year, and not just in the animated category.


addicted to Farmtown.

Farmtown girl, that's my nickname in the office. Before I start my work, break time and after work you can see me in my cubicle playing Farmtown. Farmtwon is a farming game available in Facebook that allows you design, grow and maintain your own farm. You plow fields, plant seeds, harvest crops (to sell), raise animals, and essentially build an entire farm from scratch.

You start at Level 1 as a "Getting Started Farmer". With the game "coins" you will begin by using the "hoe" icon to plow fields, the "store icon" to buy seeds to plant and the "scythe" icon to harvest them. Once you harvest them, you will see the harvests accumulate in your "shed". When you are ready, click the shed icon and it will take you to the market to sell the harvest for more coins. Then you go back to your farm to plow and plant more seeds!. It’s a fairly basic game but it can quickly become addictive as you strive to earn more money to build up your farm.

The more experience and money you have, the more your level will increase. With each new level, new seeds and farm items will become available for you to buy. The seeds will cost more but will yield more coins when harvested. The gifts you receive and send to neighbors will also be worth more, so start cultivating neighbors so you can receive gifts every day.

So join Farmtown now and be addictive to this lively and engaging game. See you soon farmers!


thank you, Pres.Cory.

The nation deeply mourns for the loss of a leader who paved way to the freedom we have right now. The first female President of South East Asia and Philippines Corazon Cojuangco Aquino has passed away. She lost her battle to colon cancer last August 1, 2009, 3.18 am in Makati Medical Center at the age of 76.

On her death, her magic is back. Last Monday, the same scenario of the People Power Revolution two decades ago was evident. Filipinos flocked to the streets and churches to pay their respect and say the final goodbye to the former president. Thousands came to the streets as her coffin was transported to the Manila Cathedral - showering the caravan with yellow confetti, waving yellow ribbons, wearing yellow shirts - the symbol of Corazon Aquino.

I was just 364 days old when the EDSA 1 happened, I may not personally experienced the greatness she has done for the country but the fact that I am enjoying and living in a democratic republic for that I am very thankful. To the icon of democracy, to the Yellow lady - goodbye and rest in peace.
