Kung hindi kayo napapadaan



Kung hindi kayo napapadaan sa index page ng pansitan.com, gusto ko lang i-share sa inyo yung ninenok kong Chinese poem ni Zhang Hu:


A lady of the palace
these twenty years,
She has lived here a
thousand miles from home -
Yet ask her for this song and,
With the first few words of it,
See how she tries
to hold back her tears.


Maganda sya, diba? Very touching. 'La lang.. feeling ko lang very apt. It talks about how you feel about home, or how endearing to your heart your past is, or how you long for your "heart's home". Anyone who hasn't lived in their homeland for a long time now or reminisces his childhood or misses a loved one could surely relate to it. That no matter how affluent you may be, there are still some things that your heart yearns for that a "palace" can never fill.


She sings an old song...

Excited na ako this


Excited na ako this coming weekend! May dalawa akong kakilala na gustong magpakuha sa akin ng fikstyurs kasi nasabi ko sa kanila na nag-iipon ako ng litratiks para sa portfolio ko in preparation sa photography classes ko. (Ayoko na kasing kumuha ng Basic Photography 1 at gusto kong dumiretso na ng Basic Photography 2. Pero kailangan kong magpakita ng portfolio para payagan ako ng head ng Arts department ng university dito). So gusto ng mga kakilala ko, black and white daw kasi nakita nila yung pictures ko ng b/w. Pero.. at ito ang malaking PERO, gusto nila NUDE photography (hehehe, nakaupo pa ba ang mga lalaking nagbabasa nito?!?!)

Pero tasteful ito, ha.. Walang mukha, kung meron man, profiles lang. Kaya nag-aaral na ako ng mga anggulo na pwede naming subukan. Nakausap ko na rin ang developer ko kasi scared akong magpadevelop ng ganun kung hindi ko trusted at sinabi nya sa akin (babae sya na Vietnamese) na sila raw mismo ang nagdedevelop ng mga pictures nila. 'Wag daw akong mag-alala (dangan kasi, kung nakuha ko yung Basic Photog 2 eh di sana marunong na akong gumamit ng dark room). Sabagay, matagal nang nagdedevelop ng mga litrato ko yung mga yun (atsaka matanda na sila). Worse comes to worst, wala namang mukhang masyadong makikita so safe ang mga kakilala ko. (hehehe)

So ngayon ang binabasa ko lagi eh yang librong yan - "Lighting the Nude". Tinuturo kasi pati mga lighting positions at kung ano-ano pang specs for a certain kind of shot. May mga napulot na akong mga idea na pwede kong gamitin. Bumili na rin ako ng isang 36-shot film na 400 speed para isama dun sa 24-shot kong film na 400 din ang speed. Pinag-aaralan ko yung mga kuhang natural/window light atsaka yung tungsten lights lang.

Hopefully, maganda lumabas para masama ko sya sa portfolio ko. May gusto bang maging assistant ko? (hehehe)

Ninang's PromiseI know, kids,


Ninang's Promise





I know, kids, the world can be a scary place to be in. You see wars on TV, you hear cries of children like you, you fear sickness that do not seem to have any cure, you crave for a better life. And with all these, I cannot blame you for asking questions that don't seem to have any answers. I know my generation and the generations before mine have screwed up so many times for you, kids. As much as we invent things to make life better for you, we still manage to create objects of disaster that could destroy this very world we all live in.

I want to give you a good life, I want to share with you the best that I can get from the world. Your moms and dads, together with all of us who care about you are trying to pave the way for a much better life for you all. We will contribute to the world's peace, share our time and resources for people in need - all in your names. For you, we won't allow you to experience the hardships we've been through. I couldn't guarantee that you won't see wars or hear children's cries or fear sickness anymore, but we will always let you feel secured and safe and loved. We will teach you to love without strings attached, care for people and how to make your own contribution to make things better for generations after you. We will always be here for you.

This, Ninang promises you.

Ooh Child/Redemption Song
Recorded by Molly Johnson/Andrew Craig

Listen to the song


Ooh child things are gonna get easier
Ooh child things'll get brighter
Ooh child things are gonna get easier
Ooh child things'll get brighter

Old pirates yes they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly

Someday, yeah, we'll put it together and we'll get it undone
Someday when your head is much lighter
Someday, yeah, we'll walk in the rays of the beautiful sun
Someday when your world is much brighter

Won't you help me sing (ooh child), these songs of freedom
All I ever had (ooh child), redemption songs
Won't you help me sing (ooh child), these songs of freedom
All I ever had (ooh child), redemption songs

Ooh child things are gonna get easier (redemption songs)
Ooh child things'll get brighter (won't you help me sing)
Ooh child things are gonna get easier (these songs of freedom)
Ooh child things'll get brighter (wont you help me sing)

Ooh child things are gonna get easier (redemption songs)
Ooh child things'll be brighter (won't you help me sing)
Ooh child things are gonna get easier (these songs of freedom)
Ooh child things'll be brighter

Someday, yeah, we'll put it together and we'll get it undone
Someday when your head is much lighter
Someday, yeah, we'll walk in the rays of the beautiful sun
Someday when your world is much brighter (when your head is much lighter)

Someday, yeah, we'll put it together and we'll get it undone
Someday when your head is much lighter (when you're head is much lighter)
Someday, yeah, we'll walk in the rays of the beautiful sun
Someday when your world is much brighter

when the world is much brighter...
it's gonna be brighter...

Binigay sa akin ni


Binigay sa akin ni inang kahapon. Nanghingi sa akin ng stationary at may isusulat daw sya. After 10 mn, inabot sa akin yung stationary, may sulat ng pentel na itim. Kasi maganda raw ang nakasulat kaya binigay nya sa akin. Share ko naman sa inyo:

"There's no oil without squeezing the olive,
No wine without pressing the grapes,
No perfume without crushing the flowers.
So when you are pressured,
God is just bringing out the best in you...

Happy Easter. Love u, Mom."

Hindi ako masyadong naniniwala na pababayaan ng Dyos na mag-suffer ka, dahil feeling ko, kagagawan ng tao ang mga nangyayari sa kanya. Pero na-touched pa rin ako dito dahil aware pala si Inang na medyo pressured nga ako sa paghahanap ng trabaho at kahit sa ganitong paraan eh binibigyan nya ako ng lakas ng loob. Nilagay ko ang papel sa dingding na kaharap ko kapag nag-ko-computer ako para lagi ko syang nakikita. Paalala lang ba na may mga sumusuporta sa akin sa mga panahong ito. Nakabahagi na sa sulat na iyon ang mga magulang ko, kapatid ko, si Andy, ang mga kaibigan ko na nagdarasal para sa akin.

Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat... salamat, Inang. Love u din...

Una kong na-enkwentro itong


Una kong na-enkwentro itong kantang ito, siguro mga isang dekada nang nakaraan. Sus... baka hindi lang.. sabihin na natin mga 13 years na siguro. (kaloka!) Kay Josefina ko unang narinig ito. Shakatak pa nga ang kumanta. O, isipin nyo na... yung mga kasing-idaran ko dyan.. kelan ba sumikat ang Shakatak, diba 19-mahoma pa? Ganun na sya katandang kanta! So para sa mga generation x'ers at sa mga pwede ko nang maging anak kung bumigay ako sa bi-ep ko nung kinse ako, (na mabuti na lang hindi nangyari dahil pinatay na ako ni Inang por syur), andyan sa baba ang kanta na may link sa em-fi-tri.

(Bakit ko feel ang kantang ito? Ganitong-ganito kasi ang feeling ko kapag hindi kami magkasama ni Andres. Kaya, baduy man, sasabihin ko na, oo... theme song ko ito sa kanya kapag magkalayo kami.)

Lonely Afternoon
Sing-a-long ka na!

An old man walks along the path, it isn't raining anymore.
The hotel sign reflects upon a lorry parked below.
A kid goes walking home from school, and stands there at the door.
Behind the windows people sit waiting for the bus to go.

Another long, lonely afternoon away from you,
And a long, dark, lonely night ahead.
It's been a long, lonely afternoon here on my own,
Such a long, dark, lonely night ahead.

The heavy clouds are forming for another dark and rainy night.
A woman hurries home before the storm begins to break.
And as she turns to cross the street, waiting for the walking light,
She glances quickly at her watch, hoping that she won't be late.

Another long, lonely afternoon away from you,
And a long, dark, lonely night ahead.
It's been a long, lonely afternoon here on my own,
Such a long, dark, lonely night ahead.

I've come across two


I've come across two poems I'd like to share with all my friends who frequent (or drop by) pansitan. They've both struck me deep...

The Day God Painted The Sky

the clouds sit
on the colored canvass
God’s perfect touch.

an original haiku from my sweet friend, Belle

This must be me
I feel this more than I
feel others smarting at my notions.
this must be me
where I look in and out of.

It can't be otherwise: these, my hands
rendering me more services
than all the hard and soft ones outside;
these, more joy at my body's raging
than pity on what I bring about.

I think I'll stay here, after all,
with my very own agonies:
between my teeth is where I feel at home.

written by Jan. G. Elburg from the anthology Living Space: Poems of the Dutch "Fiftiers", edited by Peter Glassgold. As shared to the whole world by my other good friend, Dennis.

The Day God PaintedIt



The Day God Painted




It was one of those days when God was in the mood.

"Hmmmm... this is a good day... this is a right time," he said.

And He took out His brushes and His paints and looked at the horizon. What better canvas than the whole sky!

He saw me at a distance with my camera at hand. He knew I wanted to catch Him in action. He just smiled and nodded with approval.

So while He was busy, His brush swishing and swooshing on the whole huge sky, I was looking over his magnificent shoulders taking photos while He painted...

The men in my life... Have you guys seen the latest issue of Vanity Fair? Garsh.. lahat ng ex-boypren ko nandun. Anubayun? Pwede na palang magtayo ng "The Lonely Hearts Club Caused By Ate Sienna". Nagulantang si Be-be (aksent on da last Be) dahil akala nya wala nang tatalo sa dami ng mga boypren nyang tricycle driver, magbobote, mag-shoe-shoe-shine, kartero, mag-gugulaman, mag-bubuko at panadero. Ikanga nya, "Ati, pati matanda, dyinowa mo????" Hoy... Be-be (aksent on da last Be), kahit masyonda si Jack, feeling bata yan!

Una sa lahat, maraming salamat, Jet sa pag-alala mo sa amin ni Andres at sa pagde-dikeyt ng kanta sa blog mo. Touch na touch ako talaga, mama, kasi ang ganda-ganda ng lyrics nung kantang "You Were Meant For Me" ni Sting. Dinownload ko nga agad at pinakinggan ko sya ng paulit-ulit. (Nasaan na lang tayo kung hindi na-imbento ang peer-to-peer file sharing? hehehe)

Maraming salamat ulit, prend :) Sana, ang lahat ng hiling ng puso mo nitong mga nakaraang araw eh dinggin lahat ni Batman. Good girl ka naman, eh.. I'm sure gagawin Nya yun para sa'yo...
