Kaibigan

I

Tayo’y lumaki ng sabay
hinarap ang buhay nang magka-akbay
lumipas ang panahon, lahat ay nag-iba
Parang di na ikaw ang aking kaibigan,
Ibang-iba ka na talaga.

II

Madalas kitang alokin, madalas mo ring tanggihan
Ni pumunta saking kaarawan ay di mo pinag bigyan
tila di na ikaw ang nakilala ko nuon
ibang-iba ka na talaga ngayon

III

Ako’y nagtampo, dumaan ang araw ng walang kibuan
Dun ko napagtanto, iba na pala ang iyong kinahihiligan
Kaya pala ayaw mo na sumama, mag inom, maglaro ng basketball, tumambay at mag lakwatsa
Dahil Ibang-iba ka na talaga

IV
  Isang gabi, nilapitan mo ako upang kausapin
  Naka make-up ka’t bestida, balak mo pa akong yakapin
   Sinabi kong, Ano mang desisyon mo sa buhay ay ayos lang
   Kaibigan pa rin kita, walang magbabago kailanman.

Alitaptap

Naka higa sa damuhan
nakatingala sa langit
tanaw ang mga ilaw
na sadyang kaakit-akit

Parang mga bituwing nagliliparan
na bumaba sa lupa
upang lagyan ng ngiti sa labi
ang lahat ng makakakita

Sa paglipas ng panahon
Ang mga ilaw ay nawala
Sa pag unlad ng tao,
kasabay silang nasira

Sa aking pag pag balik sa damuhan,
dama ko ang matinding kalungkutan
Wala na ang mga alitaptap na sumasayaw sa himpapawid
Mga ilaw gawa ng mga matataas na gusali
ang siyang pumalit

         

Party Goers: Minors, beers, cheers!

      A new trends for those teens who’s againts their parent’s house rules and who’s planning a rebellion. (Shaving their armpit hair, bleaching their heads and tattooing their gf’s name on their chest.) But this time, it’s more classy, more “Sosyal”. A party fitted for those self-proclaimed “Famous”, Social media playboys and playgirls, hipsters, attention seekers, future prosti and those who don’t want to finish their education and have a miserable life.

       More of a “Smoke weedz everyday” expressions on fb, is these teens new way of pissing and shaming their parents off  “Lets go to party and get drunk and pregnant at the same time!”. Circulating on social media are some of those clubs advertisements about their new events-of course, its a dance party with cool dj’s, cool party lights and lots of beers and other alcoholic drinks while swaying to the music of dubstep. And yup, everyone can join like they’re telling us ” You’re a minor? who cares, lets get drunk and get wasted!”. And by the way, last month, a photo of a girl on a club is circulating on fb with a caption of “Party pa more”. She’s half nude, her nipples are being sucked by a guy, others are looking at her laughing while dancing, and yes, she’s a minor.

    Okay, there’s nothing wrong doing these stuff (partying, getting drunk)… if you’re on a legal age. What’s wrong is, these clubs still allows you to enter their premise and have a drink even they know (obviously) that you’re not on a legal age. But yet, this is Philippines, where smoking and drinking is allowed anywhere, where childrens are allowed to buy cigarettes and alcoholic drinks, where anyone can buy prescription drugs on drugstores without prescriptions. A loosened law, loosened security. No wonder why our country is getting screwed and teens do inappopriate things. But no, don’t blame their parents. Some of these teens are just victims of “Cool factors”, where they just need to immitate others for them to not being “baduy” and be classy like the ones they idolized. Some of them mights say “Wala namang masama aa, kasayahan lang” or “Wala kang pake! buhay namin to” and for that i think i will say. “Gago! just accept the fact na bawal talaga yan, tanga!”.

      

Famous for what?

 

  No its not the typhical popularity that everyone wanted to gain. Its about the number of “thumbs ups” or should i say “likes” on facebook and other social media. The more “likes” you get, the more famous you’ll be. But the question is, what’s the deal with it?

     Admit it, sometimes we have a feeling of a little disappointment, jealousy and anger when one of our post didn’t get much likes that we wanted for it to have. No? Liar. I’m afraid to say, this kind of thing has became our measurement of how famous, how popular, how beautiful and how successful a person is. No need to look at their bio, ask for their resume or get to know ’em personally, because why should you?. People only pay attention to how much likes and retweet you recieve and they will call you “Famous” when you’d gain those.
Some tried to be a famewhore, posting photos of em, with their cleavage exposed, flirting someone who’s already a so-called famous, ETC.

     But in reality, you were just a social media freak. Does the whole world knows you? does they know your name? no. Even your parents and neighbors didn’t know you have that popularity, on social media.

       Strange isn’t it? They treat you like one of those biggest rockstars, celebrity and shit on social media but when you go outside and take a walk, nobody’s paying attention to you. And at that moment you realized that social media fame is nothing but a crap in real life, not a diploma, not a certificate of authenticity or a proof that you really are successfull and popular.

Letche, sobrang init!

   Heto yung panahon kung saan kahit magtutok ka ng limang electricfan e pagpapawisan pa rin ang singit mo. Maraming nagpupunta sa beach-yung iba naman sa mall, nag papalamig. Yung iba, sa bahay, nag i fb, habang nagpapaypay at paulit-ulit ang pagsasabi ng “t*ng **a ang init”. Siguro, heto na ang word of the month, Ang init shet.

      Siguro kaya maraming aksidente ngayon e dahil mainit din ang ulo ng mga tao. Lalo na kung mai i stuck ka pa sa gitna ng traffic sa edsa habang tirik na tirik ang araw. Kung hindi init ng ulo, malamang heatstroke ang abutin mo. Yung mga pc sa opisina, automatic na nag sha shutdown, yung bubong naman ng bahay, pwede ka nang mag prito ng itlog sa sobrang init. Di ka naman pwedeng umangal, dahil pati ang gobyerno di alam ang gagawin at wala rin silang kinalaman kung bakit ang init sa pinas. Manuod ka man ng T.V, puro commercials lang ng mga resort ang mapapanuod mo at kung sakaling di nagpaparamdam ang bf mo, malamang nagiinit din yon, at alam mo naman ang mga lalaking nag iinit, kailangan sumisid sa beach.

  Minsan naiisip ko, di kaya baka pinaparasuhan na tayo, masyado na atang makasalanan ang mga tao. Pero alam naman nating epekto na ‘to  ng Global warming kaya kung meron mang dapat parusahan, ayun ay ang mga may ari ng mga pabrikang malalakas mag labas ng usok, mga illegal loggers at mga nakatira sa gilid ng ilog, dun kasi sila nag tatapon, naliligo, naglalaba at jumijerbaks- engrandeng bakasyon diba?.

      Pag uwi mo naman galing trabaho, bukod sa pagod ka na e, basang basa pa ng pawis ang katawan mo. Sasakay ka ng LRT, ang haba ng pila. Pag sakay mo sa loob ng tren, makakasabay mo ang isang matabang mama na may gripo ata sa kili-kili, dadantay siya malapit sa’yo. Gusto mo siyang tanuning kung nag rexona o tawas ba siya pero alam mong naka badtrip yung gano’ng tanong. Gusto mo nang sabihing “Hey, sabi sa commercial, it wont let us down kaya tara mag deodorant tayo” para lang di siya ma offend. Humihiling ka na lang na sana bukas dun na lang sa kulungan ng mga sabit sa pork barrel scam tumutok ang araw. At dahil pilipino ka, titiisin mo na lang ang lahat dahil next month bagyo naman ang haharapin mo.

Motorist from hell

  They are the new faces of population control. Speeding on public roads, testing how hard the concrete barrier is, and knowing how it feels like to drive under the influence of alcohol. Everynight on evening news, they’re the headlines, wreckless, Arrogant, Assholes and Stupid motorist that probably came from hell.
       This countless accidents involving them are happens in EDSA, the longest parking lot in the country. Maybe their reasons being so hostile are:

* Playing metal,hardcore and rock music on their cars
* Bad mood because of the pink colored fences, waiting sheds and footbridges on the road
* Blood curdling traffic
* overtaking and “singit-king” motorcycle drivers.
* Giant billboard of an unknown model wearing briefs
* They’ve played Grand theft Auto 5 recently.

    And sometimes these bastards (commonly taxi drivers) are so smartass when it comes to money. Stupid when driving, Smart-ass when they make you “Taga” So better check their taxi meters for “bating-ting” when riding one. And sometimes these fuckers are so choosy. They will ignore you if you don’t look like the ones who lives in Serendra, Mandaluyong executive mansions or Lancaster when you hail them.
      Jeepney drivers also has their negative sides. Some are so called “Gangstas”, wearing blings and shades who usually played loud rap musics on the road with the volume turned up to 20 or max. It so difficult to deal with them as you will be needed to shout “Mama, para po” or “mama bayad ho” as loud as you can.
      Some are typical, music lover or should i say, singers. Who will sing at the top of their lungs while hitting the gas pedal, and they will not give a damn if you don’t like their voices. How annoying it is, hearing this kind of lyrics:
” Natings gana tsyends may lab por yu, yu no naman diba haw mats ay lab yu”.
