You Asked Me if I Love You




I just so love this song.. The lyrics really HIT hard! (toinks)


Here goes:


You ask me if I love you And i choke on my
reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly than mislead you
with a lie
And who am I to judge you On what you say or
do?
I'm only just beginning to see real you

CHORUS: And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you 'til I die
'Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you 'til the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy Leaves me battling
with my pride
But, through the insecurity Some tenderness
survives
I'm just another writer Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter Sill trapped within my
youth (Chorus)

At times, I'd like to break you And drive you to
your knees
At times, I'd like to break through And hold you
endlessly

At times, I understand you And I know how hard
you've tried
I've watched while love commands you And I've
watched love pass by
At times, I think we're drifters Still searching for a
friend
A brother or a sister But then the passion flares
again.. (Chorus)



PS: See so touching!!

Nostalgia


I've been browsing my Friendster Blog (to re-read the entries I've typed in and also because I am feeling kinda senti!) when I chanced upon this entry last December '06.. I still feel this way even if it's more than a year since graduating from college.







Read on..
WARNING: Not for the faint hearted-- too serious to handle!!

Gosh, i can't believe i'm working now... it's like only yesterday that we are loitering around PLM's campus and discussing our projects or creating a plot or even 'squeezing ourselves like a lemon' just so we could produce an answer to the brain-draining and nose-bleeding crisis of pr.. hehehe..

but now, i'm here in an airconditioned room, in front of a computer and should be sending emails to customers, but is actually typing this article for a personal blog. teehee ^_^

i miss all the times wherein we would just sit under one shed or on the grass and looking (and scrutinizing) everything and everyone we see.. sharing stories, giggling and just having fun... as if nothing's the matter.. and we're not beating every subject's deadlines!!

it's just now that it's sinking into my system that college life's over.. the virtual reality had passed, i'm now playing in the real game called -- LIFE!

now i'm telling myself, in college when we fail an exam or recitation, we can always make it up next time. but in this reality game, we can never have the same exact scenario, there'll be no next time-- we can only have experiences gained and lessons learned..

but no matter what, i know i have my family and friends to help me hurdle the obstacles that'll come my way, who'll slow me down when i'm running too fast and who'll pick me up when i stumble..

"may ganung factor??.. nagdadrama!!"


This entry transcends me through time! I know, we (my closest college friends) make it a point to
meet every weekends or at least twice a month.. but still it's very different from what it used to
be way back in college -where we have everyday of our college life to talk, laugh at goof around- today, we don't have the luxury of time to do that anymore (and i guess, there never will be) that is why aside from Friday night gimiks we also plan (a very looooong planning indeed- which entails, synchronizing scheds, scheduling office leaves and other what tos?!) a long weekend trip to a place away from the rat-race in Makati (Lheng & I) or Manila (Pau & Hapi), in hope that we can find solace and seek comfort from each other -while ranting our frustrations and sharing our goals and being excited and glad on each other's achievements and accomplishments.

Gosh, I am just so freakin' melodramatic.. I think I can write a tear-jerking script- but then again maybe not!


PS: I just came from our weekend getaway at Hapi's place in Antipolo. We actually have the gal to swim and defy typhoon Egay's wrath.


*No Egay! you can't stop us! Rain or shine if our mind is set in doing it.. do it we will! haha... -yeah, we're that stubborn.. or atleast I think, we are ;)


It's fun and we've got tons and tons of photos.. ÜÜÜ

Hows your day going? Are you missing someone dear too?


hugs n kisses

Ballad version of Umbrella




This ballad rendition of Rihanna's Umbrella ella ella (sorry cant resist it! ehehe) was done by Mandy Moore.

Initially my reaction was.. NO WAY! a slow and soulful version of the upbeat and remix Umbrella?! For sure it'll be funny and it will just ruin the song. True to my initial reaction, after hearing Mandy's rendition, it really sounded funny and queer. But after hearing it for the second time, I decided that it is worth listening to. Mandy Moore's voice wasnt at all powerful and great but it gave justice to the song. I kinda like this slow and soulful rendition of Umbrella.

If I feel like dancing I will just have to play Rihanna's Umbrella to groove into the beat, but if I wanna enjoy the song in a more relaxing way and also to reflect on the message of the song then I will just have to scroll to Mandy's ballad. I have actually added the song to my playlist! hehe..

PS: I also happen to learn that there's a ballad version of BEP's My Humps rendered by Alanis Morisette. Wahahah it's not worth a pence! Alanis' angst-ridden voice plus the song's playful message equals creepy! ahahah it really makes me laugh HARD!! Alanis probably meant it as a joke.. but still it gave me a fright, I didn't even want to give her version a second hearing.

Fun-filled Day


We always make it a point to dine out every Friday of the week, just to personally fill in on each other's life -work and love (or the lack of it) or allot an entire day for each other. It's not just tetê-a-tetê that we do.. We just loove to eat, and eat we do! We're just soo damn lucky it doesn't show!

be green with envy .. LOL




The rundown: Had luch at our fave (at least mine) pizza parlour, Carlo's Pizza- where I soo love the non-greasy-melt-in-your-mouth pizza; then talked and throw jokes on each other; then watched Ratatoullie while   rolling our eyes over the uncivilized being who can't help but repeat to his companion what is being shown on the big screen! Duh?! I wonder if he woorks for a radio station (probably a dubber - ay nagluluto yung daga, hahaha nabunggo yung bike) hallaer! it's like we can see it naman?! Some people are just so whatevah!!

Then, had a guilty pleasure dessert at Chocolat. I had the sinfully delicious Bailey's Cake



AHA Hapi! Sira ang South Beach diet! ahehe Lagot kami kay Abba!


Hapi: Guilty!



PS: I loove the animation and the story even if it's just so gross seing a cooking-rat-infested-four star-restaurant.


Ratata,
